Bryan Fischer continues to defend his claim that the HIV virus does not cause AIDS and that the entire thing is a scam designed by scientists to get research money.
So what is the cause of AIDS, according to Fischer? Well, it is the thousands of sexual partners that gay men have coupled with the fact that they need to take “poppers” in order to have that much sex. It is these poppers, Fischer says, that destroy the immune system and “96% of the people who engage actively in homosexuality” use these drugs:
God’s design is one sexual partner for life. Now, in the homosexual community, the average homosexual has hundreds of sexual partners over the course of a lifetime. Hundreds. Some of them have between 500 and 1000 and there are any number of homosexuals, and they admit this in their own literature, have more then a 1000 sexual partners.
Now they’re talking about numerous sexual encounters on the same night. Now, in order to do that, they’ve got to take drugs to enhance the experience and to make it possible to have numerous encounters on the same night. These drugs are called “poppers,” is the street name for them. They’re amyl nitrites, alkyl nitrites … they inhale these things and they dilate the blood vessels, increase blood flow and all that kind of thing – they’re real tough on the heart, in fact, you’ll find homosexuals frequently dying at early ages of heart attacks. Why? Because they’ve just overstimulated their heart with these nitrites because of the kind of sexual behavior that they engage in.
And we know, [Peter] Duesberg say, look we know, we can demonstrate in the lab the way these nitrites, the way these inhalants break down the immune system. And the research indicates that 96% of the people who engage actively in homosexuality, homosexual behavior, use these nitrites. The inhalants are very common.
So he suggests that this is the cause of AIDS: it’s the rampant promiscuity, coupled with this drug use. That’s what causes the human immune system to break down.
