Christian conservative Bryan Fischer on Friday explained that he's opposed to gay rights because he 'love[s] black males.'

“[B]lacks make up only 12% of the U.S. population but had nearly half (44%) of all new HIV infections in the United States in 2010,” Fischer told his radio listeners, citing statistics released by the CDC to coincide with National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day.

“This is black genocide,” he said.

“Let me put it bluntly,” he continued. “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.” (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
