American Family Association spokesman wants to strip children from gay parents
Brian Fisher believes children being raised by same-sex couples are at such risk of being molested that all must be put into state care
American Family Association spokesman Brian Fisher has taken to the airwaves to demand that gay and lesbian parents have their children taken away from them, and says they should only be allowed to see them on supervised visits to stop them from molesting them.
Speaking on his Focal Point radio show on American Family Radio on Monday, Fisher suggested gays were at such risk of molesting children in their care that even their own biological children should be stripped from them.
‘We are not going to put children in same-sex households,’ Fisher said, ‘We’re not going to adopt them into same-sex households, we’re not going to give custody.’
‘If somebody goes into the homosexual lifestyle after siring children, bringing children into the world, with an opposite sex partner, they are not going to get custody of these children.
‘If they have business with those kids they are going to be supervised visits. We cannot trust the sexual integrity and innocent and purity of young children to those that have same-sex preferences. The risk is far, far too high.’
In making the comments Fisher referred to this year’s Penn State child sexual abuse scandal where Jerry Sandusky, a paedophile assistant football coach, was found guilty of 45 instances of child molestation against young boys taking place over more than a decade.
Sandusky had been in a married heterosexual relationship at the time.
The American Family Association has been designated as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, and Fisher has claimed that homosexuality was responsible for Nazism in opposing LGBT US military personnel serving openly.
‘Homosexuality gave us Adolph Hitler, and homosexuals in the military gave us the Brown Shirts, the Nazi war machine and six million dead Jews,’ Fisher said in 2010.
He has also encouraged HIV positive gay men to stop taking their medications and claimed that AIDS was not the result of the virus.
