Matt Barber Hopes Hobby Lobby Decision Will Help Anti-LGBT Businesses

Matt Barber, an attorney and vice president of Liberty Counsel Action (which GLAAD describes as an "anti-LGBT legal outfit"), says he hopes that the recent Supreme Court Hobby Lobby decision, which granted businesses the right to not provide contraceptive coverage to their employees, might also apply to anti-LGBT businesses who might otherwise be forced to accommodate LGBT people.

Barber"Praise God. The prayers of many saints have been answered," Barber says at the outset of his article on his website BarbWire.com:

The implications of this victory for freedom cannot be overemphasized as the decision holds essentially that First Amendment religious liberties are applicable to corporations. It protects those with pro-life views from being forced by the government to be complicit in (pay for or provide) abortion homicide procedures, whether chemical or surgical.

There will be much analysis to follow and it remains unclear, but this bodes somewhat well for religious liberty in the context of how Christian business owners who sincerely hold to the biblical view of sexual morality may (or may not) “associate” with others who are engaged in the counter-biblical “LGBT” lifestyle or other forms of sexual immorality.

Barber also recently spoke out against what he sees as gays "homosexualizing the boy scouts," which most recently manifested itself when a group in favor of making the Boy Scouts inclusive to gay people marching in the Columbus, Ohio pride parade.

He was recently interviewed by Linda Harvey of Mission America about the event:

The homosexual activist agenda, they are at the forefront of child corruption. That's a major part of their agenda. They want to own the minds of children, because they know they can then own the minds of the future. So these kids' young minds are malleable, they can be propagandized and indoctrinated. And so it is absolutely reprehensible that they are exposing these children to this perversion, to this highly sexually charged, these open acts of public displays of nudity. You know it's just absolutely appalling. But that's what the homosexual activist agenda did. They homosexualized the military and now they're homosexualizing the Boy Scouts and politicizing the Boy Scouts and it's just simply disgusting to watch. It's appalling to watch. But they take every institution, they take things that are noble and good and they swarm in like a horde of locusts and they don't care what damage is done because it helps further their agenda. Then they fly away and what's left is a husk of what was there to begin with. 

Indeed.

  2. A victory for organized religion is a setback for freedom.

  3. Wow, the paranoid, delusional mind on display. What a complete and utter moron. If anyone is actually dangerously afflicting the minds of the young, it is the evangelical and Catholic religious extremists.

  4. Wow. Matt Barber has some bizarre conversion fantasies. Anyone with common sense know most people just happen to be straight, and no flashing of nudity ?! could change that.

    Matt Barber has borderline admitted that his own sexuality tilts far more towards homo than he admits, as he thinks that nudity could sway him. Wth.

    And this "protect our children" meme slanders the many loving gay parents. Matt Barber openly seeks to harm the children of gay parents. Matt Barber is a lying soulless monster. Yuck.

  5. Not to be too blunt about it, but, c'mon, in any decent version of h.e.).)., Matt Barber's flame will be among the brightest, no?

    Matt Barber isn't merely not a good person: this hate language he uses to scapegoat people who have different sexualities is diabolical. Maybe not in this life, but Karma will get Matt Barber and his ilk.

  6. What he really sees is a paycheck from a host of bigoted businesses. The Supreme Court decision gives his wallet new hopes and dreams.

  8. The supreme court has already turned away an appeal based on public accommodation rights. That was earlier this year, so the HL ruling changes nothing.

  9. Too OBSESSED with the gay.
    Serious closet case.
    He'd make a hot bottom bear if he wasn't such a hateful closeted bigot. His hate-filled diatribe alone shows how incredibly unstable him and the rest of the religious wrong are and will continue to be in the future. Poor babies.

  10. He used to follow and argue with my JonBenet Ramsey account. He is an idiot.

  11. Intriguing how, with a few omitted words and phrases and a couple of substitutions, Barber's blurt would describe exactly how theocratic "christian" fundamentalism works to rot the social fabric.

  12. Matty, your obsession with all things homosexual really is unhealthy. Please seek treatment.

  14. Why is it that some bigots are some of the HOTTEST men out there? It's just not fair!! I'm taking this is an accurate photo of him...

  15. "decision holds essentially that First Amendment religious liberties are applicable to corporations"

    It says no such thing. It ignored the First Amendment arguments, and decided the case on RFRA grounds. RFRA was designed to overrule a prior Supreme Court decision. There is no First Amendment issue in this case (except to the extent that corporate religion makes government complicit in discrimination).

    (We'd homosexualize the churches too, but they've already locusted themselves with their heartless lunacy.)

  17. Hey; Jug head; When I was a Boy Scout at age 14, I was in the "Queer" Patrol. There were six of us. We had our own Tent at Summer Camp, and we did not look any different than all the the other Scouts. As a matter of fact, I found out some time latter that we were not the only "Gay" Patrol there. Other Troops had Gay Patrols, also, in 1941. That's right, I am 87 and have been living with my Gay partner for over 35 years. Oh!, for several years I was Treasurer of the Scout Troop two of my sons were in.

    Do any of these Bible Thumping morons rearly think that Gay Scouts are a recent event in Scouting? We were a part of it from the very beginning.
