Bryan Fischer, the director of issues analysis for the conservative American Family Association, says he thinks gays should have to start footing the bill for AIDS research because “homosexual sex and injection drug use” cause the disease.

"Homosexual activist groups likewise are pushing a lifestyle that kills," Fischer wrote Wednesday, on World AIDS Day. "If anybody should be obligated to pony up funds to mitigate a health crisis, it ought to be the organizations that are responsible for advocating the very behavior that created and perpetuates the epidemic."

Fischer has a long history of making outrageous claims against gays and lesbians. He has suggested multiple times that Adolf Hitler recruited gays and “enforcers” because they had "no limits" to "the savagery and brutality they were willing to inflict."
