Motivational speaker Frank Turek says he's out to warn gay people to avoid getting run over by a truck, reported.

Turek, who penned the book Correct, Not Politically Correct: How Same-Sex Marriage Hurts Everyone, opines in an op-ed published Monday on the AFA's Rightly Concerned blog that he's warning gay and lesbian people to alter their sexuality out of love and concern for their welfare.

“Celebrating behavior that leads to disease and an early death is closer to hate than love,” Turek wrote. “According to the latest data from the Center for Disease Control, homosexual men comprise more than 80 percent of sexually transmitted HIV cases despite comprising less than 2 percent of the population. The FDA says that men who have sex with men have an HIV infection rate 60 times higher than the general population. Why should we be encouraging behavior that results in such tragic outcomes? If I have good reason to think you are on the road to destruction – if a truck is about to run over you – the only way to love you is to urge you to get out of the street.”

“If I tell you to keep walking down that road – that I celebrate the road you're on – how could I hate you more?” the Charlotte, South Carolina-based speaker added.
