Talk show host David Pakman questioned Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association on his program Monday over his opposition to non-heterosexual behavior and same sex relationships.
About halfway through the interview, Pakman asked why those opposed to same sex relationships seemed to focus on anal sex between gay men and ignore lesbian women.
“Many people on your side — I guess, if we are to call it a side — seem so fixated on the minutia of what two men do with each other, when they claim that they’re focus is really the broader morality of homosexuality,” Pakman said. “But you seem completely unconcerned with lesbians, which seems to be very common among anti-gay folk. Why is the obsession with gay male sex as opposed to lesbians? Do you care about lesbians at all?”
“Yeah, and that is one of the reasons why we oppose the normalization of lesbian behavior,” Fischer responded. “There are a number of serious mental and physical health consequences that are associated with lesbianism.”
“Like what?” Pakman interjected.
“They have a much higher rate of breast cancer for instance, they have a much higher rate of certain vaginal diseases, they have a much higher rate of emotional problems such as suicidal ideation, they is a much higher rate of domestic disturbance in lesbian relationships,” Fischer claimed. “So for their sake, we think society ought to oppose the normalization of lesbianism as well as homosexuality.”
The Southern Poverty Law Center classifies the American Family Association as a hate group because of its “demonizing propaganda aimed at homosexuals and other sexual minorities.”

WATCH: CNN fact checker shows how Trump campaign ‘egregiously altered’ Biden photos in new ad
CNN fact checker Daniel Dale on Thursday showed on President Donald Trump's campaign has been blatantly manipulating photos of former Vice President Joe Biden to make it look like he has spent the last year sitting in his basement.
While appearing on "New Day," Dale dissected images of Biden in Trump's new ad and showed how the campaign used Photoshop to put the photos in a completely different context.
"[The ad] uses three misleading images, one of which is egregiously altered," Dale said. "That first image shows Joe Biden speaking at a town hall in Iowa outdoors at a nature preserve... what the ad does is remove the microphone from his hand and remove the trees, replacing it with a wall to make him seem like he's alone and not talking to anyone."
‘Donald who?’ Presidential historian predicts GOP support for Trump will erode in the face of a ‘blue wave’
MSNBC's Jon Meacham predicts that President Donald Trump won't be able to count on Republican support through a lengthy vote-counting process.
The historian and author told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" that GOP support may wane if Democrats strengthen their House majority and take over the Senate from Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, even if the results of the presidential election aren't known until weeks later.
"There's a much better chance that Joe Biden will end up somewhat centering the Democratic Party than anybody is going to come along and center the Republican Party," Meacham said, "and I think that's an existential threat to a Republican Party that has sold its soul, the check bounced, and they've got to figure out what are they going to do to attempt to be something approaching majority party in this demographically changing country."
Veteran Republican operative shames the GOP — and warns they won’t get rid of Trumpism ‘for at least a generation’
Stuart Stevens is a veteran Republican campaign operative from five presidential races. When he spoke to PBS's Judy Woodruff Wednesday, he lamented the GOP failed the moral test it was presented with Donald Trump.
"Well, I think there's been two strains in the party. Call it an Eisenhower strain going back to the '50s and a McCarthy strain," Stevens said, recalling when the GOP would talk about expanding their party and bringing in more African-American voters. "Now we don't even hear any talk anymore of a big tent. And we seem to have settled into a very comfortable white grievance identity."
