Right-Winger Says Barney Frank Responsible for AIDS Deaths
A spokesman for a group that Rick Perry partnered with for a giant prayer rally in August claims that Barney Frank's example as a gay man sent an untold number of men "to an early grave."

The American Family Association's radio program, hosted by Bryan Fischer, took on the topic of Frank's retirement from Congress on Monday. In a video posted by Right Wing Watch, Fisher complains that the media praised Frank for an accomplished and long career, which included him being the first representative to voluntarily come out.

"Barney Frank has been an open practitioner of a lifestyle that is condemning one young man after another to an early grave," Fischer said, claiming gay people are all plagued by AIDS. "This is not somebody to admire, this is not somebody to honor you've got all these left-wing media outlets out there talking about what a colorful figure he was and how important a legislator he was and how he's going to be missed on the American political scene. And yet he modeled a lifestyle which is really a deathstyle."

Frank said during his retirement announcement that he hoped his example had helped others to come out. "The best antidote to prejudice is reality," Frank said.
