Bryan Fischer is at it again.
The right-wing Christian extremist, who has previously endorsed the notion that the HIV virus is not the true cause of AIDS, is now suggesting that the disease can be cured -- if the victim stops doing drugs and having sex.
"You know, we really don’t know what kind of recuperative powers God may have built into the human body," Fischer, who serves as Director of Issues Analysis for the American Family Association (AFA), said on his "Focal Point" radio show. "In other words, if you stop shooting up, if you stop inhaling these nitrates, if you stop having random sex promiscuously with total strangers, your body may begin to heal."
Fischer has been particular vocal about HIV/AIDS victims as of late, even suggesting that basketball legend Magic Johnson being alive for 20 years after his initial diagnosis is "confirmation" that AIDS is not caused by the virus.
