Wingnut Peter LaBarbera: LGBT Students 'Getting Scholarships...for Embracing Perversion' - AUDIO

LaBarberaPeter LaBarbera, President of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, joined religious right radio host Janet Meffered yesterday in a discussion about the Illinois marriage equality vote and the U.S. Senate's approval of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act.

While on the subject of ENDA, LaBarbera argued that far from being discriminated against in society, LGBT people are even "getting scholarships on college campuses for embracing perversion." The people who are actually facing discrimination, LaBarbera asserted, are the patriots like him who oppose homosexuality.

  1. The idea that people aren't entitled to equality equals perversion in modern society.

  2. Not related to the story, but this site now has obnoxious and likely malicious pop ups and scripts running on it. Just got one that caused my phone to download an apk.

  3. Hmm. I wonder if Porno Pete could show us any facts of a prospective college student receiving a scholarship solely for existing as a gay person. Pretty sure we'd be waiting a long time for that.

  4. Well Francis #1, I do know of one scholarship that is only available to LGBT student. A rather wealthy Minnesotan family offers it, because they have many gay relatives and friends. It's not uncommon for scholarships to be offered to a particular group based on race or gender, etc.

  5. Indoori,

    The issue you're having is nothing new! Andy has never met an ad he didn't like! lol The sheer volume of ads is ridiculous! Just use Firefox with the Ad-blocker Plus add-on installed. Problem solved!

  7. Mike, yes there are scholarships that are limited to LGBT applicants but they also have to qualify for them with academic standards or activism. It's not just "Oh, you're gay? Well here's some money!"

    That's also true of scholarships for children of veterans and about everything else up to and probably including left-handed Lithuanian immigrant children.

    There are also many MANY faith & religion based scholarships, not just to religious "schools" like Liberty University but to all other schools. It's actually kind of ironic because the attitude of some of the more fundamentalist groups is "We'll give you money to attend school, but you better not actually LISTEN to what them gol-durn liberal elites have to say!"

  8. Believe me, if it were that easy, Pete, I'd be in school for free.

  9. Mr. LaBarbera, it's called a "drama scholarship", thankyouverymuch ;-)

  10. Yeah, and people receive scholarships for immaturity and believing in faeries and supernatural beings that you can't see but believe control your life--you know, like you. That kind of makes you insane.

  12. Peter has been to more circuit parties than I have. He's been to Gay Days more than I have. He's been to Beach Ball, and Pride more times than I have. I think he's obsessed with homosexuality.

  13. Nope. They are getting scholarships for accepting themselves as Nature intended. Those who support freedom are the REAL American Patriots. Peter LaBarbaric is not. He is nothing but a parasitic, grotesque, inhuman, anti-freedom, anti-American, waste of life, blood thirsty, mentally unhinged, barbaric Hitler wannabe who belongs in a mental hospital far away from all sane civilized human beings.

  14. He's still pissed at Illinois, his home state. Ha bloody ha!

  15. And he DEFINITELY owns more leather and fetish gear than my son and I put together (chuckle).

  16. @Indoori,

    I don't seem to be annoyed by them, maybe because my internet is pretty fast...

    But you can also try the gay report, they have very minimal ads: www.thegayreport.net
