Not since Jerry Maguire screamed “I love the black man!” into a telephone has a more implausible declaration of racial amour been heard than the one offered by Bryan Fischer, who says we must make homosexuality illegal because he just loves black men so much.
“This is black genocide,” he said.
“Let me put it bluntly,” Fischer declared. “If you are for the legalization of homosexuality, you are for the acceptability of homosexuality, you are for the normalization of homosexuality, you do not care about black males. You have no compassion in your black heart for black males because they’re being decimated by HIV/AIDS … So why am I opposed to the normalization of homosexual behavior? Because I love black males. I want black males to live long, prosperous, healthy, disease-free lives.”
You know one of the reasons why HIV has spread more rapidly among young gay black men? Stigma. It makes them less likely to get tested and most transmission of HIV come from those who don’t know they have it.
