BarbWire Columnist Blames 'Demonic' Gay People For Leelah Alcorn's Suicide: LISTEN

Alcorn

Gina Miller, a content editor at vile anti-gay rag BarbWire, has blamed the gay community for the suicide of transgender teen Leelah Alcorn, reports Right Wing Watch.

6a00d8341c730253ef01b8d0b43782970c-800wiLate last month, 17-year-old Alcorn took her own life and scheduled a heartbreaking suicide note to be published on her Tumblr page. The page has since been removed by Leelah’s conservative Christian parents.

In a characteristically nasty but shockingly insensitive column, Miller says that Satanic forces were behind Leelah’s “deeply disturbing mental and spiritual sickness.”

She continues that anyone “in open rebellion against God’s design for human sexuality will suffer for it, and suicidal tendencies are just one of the many ill effects.”

Using the horrible, preventable death of a teenager as fuel to the “Christian” right fire, Miller goes on to claim that it is actually anti-gay activists that are the victims of Leelah’s death:

“Our freedoms are in terrible danger. The radical homosexual movement is a powerful tool of these evil forces, and it is being used in an aggressive campaign to squash our natural rights of conscience, speech, association and religion and to pervert the meaning of family and marriage.”

BarbWire is owned by bigot Matt Barber, a man so deeply involved in the promotion of hatred that he has actively supported the “work” of Scott Lively who is known for helping to spread anti-gay laws in Africa and for his book The Pink Swastika, which blamed gay people for the rise of Nazi Germany.

Dan Savage has called for Leelah's parents to be prosecuted for abuse.

Matt Barber is outraged after San Jose State University's InterVarsity Christian Fellowship chapter lost its' status as an officially recognized campus organization after refusing to comply with the school's non-discrimination policies reports Right Wing WatchBarber went so far as to say on the Faith and Freedom radio program that not allowing Christians to discriminate against gays is, itself, discrimination against Christians.

Said Barber:

"It's an excuse to discriminate against Christians ... That's all it is and it's stupid. It's just plain stupid. Imagine going to the African American organization on your campus and saying that you have to allow an open, avowed white supremacist as the leader of this African American organization, maybe a student branch of the NAACP. That is no different than what we are talking about here, but because it's Christians, and this is the truth, really the last group here in the United States that is fair game, that is an open target for discrimination such as this are Christians."

"What would have happened if Martin Luther King, Jr. had just stood down and said, 'No, I can't participate in all of this, I'm just going to remain silent'?" asks Liberty Counsel spokesman Matt Barber. The anti-LGBT, pro-discrimination discussion continues with fellow right-wing nut Mat Staver rambling on about how the next civil rights movement is all about making sure LGBT Americans continue to be treated as second class citizens.

It's worth listening to the full exchange, but the level of delusion on display might just leave you breathless.
