AFA senior issue analyst conflates intentionally exposing a minor to HIV with 'homosexual sex'

by Jeremy Hooper

Louisiana teacher Derrick Nesby allegedly had sex with a sixteen-year-old student and intentionally exposed that minor to HIV. Both sex with an underage person and intentionally exposing someone to the HIV virus is unlawful in the state of Louisiana.

Now look at how American Family Association senior official Bryan Fischer addresses the matter:

"Homosexual sex." That's it. Period. To Bryan, that's all this is, and that is the reason for potential penalties.

The truth, of course, is that the exact same penalties would apply to a teacher who intentionally exposed an underage sex partner of the opposite sex to the HIV virus. These allegedly unlawful acts have nothing to do with homosexuality, which is obviously not a criminal act in the United States of America. A thirty-seven-year-old can't sleep with a sixteen-year-old, according to the law. A person cannot knowingly and intentionally expose a sex partner to the HIV virus, according to the law. That goes for gay; that goes for straight.

The difference? Bryan isn't bizarrely obsessed with heterosexual sex and making other people detest it.
