Bryan Fischer: Michael Sam has 'literally got an improvised explosive device sitting under the floorboards of his life'

by Jeremy Hooper

Building on his earlier claim that he's like a walking brain concussion and relying on junk science that he twists to "prove" that gay men die young, American Family Association senior analyst Bryan Fischer is now comparing NFL player Michael Sam to an IED—something that kills soldiers in combat. Clip is cued:

The Journal of Epidemiology report to which Bryan is referring was conducted during the height of the AIDS crisis, in the '80s and early '90s. In 2001, the researchers came back and noted the obvious changes that had occurred since the height of the plague years. They also condemned politically-driven misuse of the kind that Bryan is doing here. That was a full thirteen years ago they did this.

That is just one flaw in Bryan's thinking. But then again, when you are someone who compares a vibrant human being to a bomb—which he did literally, while himself including the word "literally"—I think the intellectual flaws are fairly self-evident.
