AFTAH Explains The Real Tragedy Of Penn State Scandal

Yesterday, the president of Americans For The Truth About Homosexuality, Peter LaBarbera, issued a press release in which he explained the real tragedy at the heart of Penn State defensive coach Jerry Sandusky's serial rape of an untold number of pre-adolescent boys over an untold stretch of years: Some of the victims may grow up to be gay.

Wrote LaBarbera:

Thus, how many boy victims of homosexual predator Sandusky will end up believing that being homosexual (“gay”) is “who they are”? How many will struggle with sexual identity issues? And how many will be told by LGBT advocates and liberal-minded people just to “accept being gay” as “who they are” because they were “born that way”?

Let's remember: LaBarbera and his allies believe that unrepentant LGBT folk will spend all of eternity basting in a lake of fire. Furthermore, LaBarbera believes that even the grossest sinner can gain entrance to eternal paradise should he feelingfully repent before he croaks. Which means LaBarbera believes something like the following: 1) Child is born; 2) Child is raped; 3) Child's sexuality is scrambled by said rape; 4) The creator of the universe is angry at both adult rapist and child rapee; 5) Adult rapist repents; 6) Child rapee does not; 7) Rapist enjoys happiness forever, untouched by pity for his erstwhile child rapee, who spends all of eternity convulsed in unspeakable agony.

Furthermore, Peter LaBarbera believes that "God is love," and that secular society is immoral, cruel, and heartless. He is, in other words, very confused.
