Bryan Fischer Of American Family Association Calls For Photos Showing 'Graphic' Consequences Of Gay Sex To Deter 'Immoral' Act

Posted: Updated:

The American Family Association's Bryan Fischer fired off at the gay community once again on Twitter, this time with a particularly unusual request regarding man-on-man sex.

Pointing to an Associated Press article which talks about an Australian court's decision prohibiting tobacco brands from displaying logos on packs -- where images of "cancer-riddled mouths, blinded eyeballs and sickly children" are instead required to be displayed, according to the article -- the prominent anti-gay pundit called for similar imagery to be produced for the gay community:


Bryan Fischer
Australia requires graphic photos: what smoking does to human health. Need similar photos re: gay sex.

As he specified in a subsequent series of tweets, Fischer got his wish -- well, sort of.


Bryan Fischer
We discriminate against sexually immoral behavior all the time. DHS exec on leave. If gay sex is immoral...

NYC health department produced PSA that showed damage homosexual behavior does to human body. Gay activists went ballistic.

Here's the graphic PSA the NYC health dept produced, showing consequences of homosexual behavior.

Interestingly, Fischer appeared to be missing the point of the nearly two-year-old public service annoucement he referenced, which can be viewed above. As Towleroad reported in 2010, the "It's Never Just HIV" video is aimed at increasing condom use, pointing out that those suffering from HIV "can also be afflicted with severe osteoporosis, dementia and anal cancer."

Even among the more conservative crowd, Fischer's rants have become notorious. Last week, he sparked the ire of many in the blogosphere after calling for an "Underground Railroad to deliver innocent children from same-sex households," while previously citing the Penn State child abuse scandal as evidence why same-sex parents shouldn't be allowed to adopt children.
