Bryan Fischer has claimed that God is waiting for gay men to stop having sex before curing them of AIDS, media watchdog reported.

On a recent episode of his AFA-sponsored radio show Focal Point, Fischer told listeners that HIV does not cause AIDS, calling it a “scam.”

He revisited the subject on Wednesday's program.

“You know we really don't know what kind of recuperative powers God may have built into the human body that may allow the body … the body may be able to restructure and restore its immunological capacity if we stop subjecting it to all of these harmful behaviors. In other words, if you stop shooting up, or you stop inhaling these nitrates, you stop having random sex with … promiscuously with total strangers, your body may begin to heal. God has worked some amazingly powerful recuperative powers into the human body and it's time that we gave them an opportunity to work.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.
