Matt Barber Says Gay Marriage Took a 'Sledgehammer' to Society That Will Send It 'Tumbling Down' - AUDIO

Matt barber

Hate group leader Matt Barber appeared on right-wing talk radio host Janet Mefferd's radio program Thursday to discuss last week's federal ruling striking down Utah's ban on polygamous relationships and how, in their eyes, it all ties back to the gays taking a "sledgehammer" to America's society by having the audacity to fight for equal rights. 

Said Barber:

You know those of us who are 'traditionalists' if you will, those of us who recognize the biblical model of human sexuality and marriage, frankly we are just out-propagandized. These people are very, very good at what they do and they know to play soundbites and to use these little emotional anecdotes...I just hope that people will recognize that when we deviate and try to redefine something that cannot be redefined — particularly when that thing, we’re talking about marriage here, is a fundamental cornerstone of any society — if we take a sledgehammer to that cornerstone, the results are disastrous and everything comes tumbling down. 

In a separate audio clip, Barber and fellow Liberty Council bigot Mat Staver speak out against Fayetteville, Arkansas recent passage of a LGBT inclusive nondiscrimiantion ordinance, which the two think is just the "sexual anarchist movement's" attempt to force the city to engage in a "mass delusion under penalty of law"

Whatever that means..

Scott Lively Takes Aim At The 'Dangerous Heresy' Of Gay-Affirming Christians - VIDEO

Lively2

Vile homophobe Scott Lively has taken to promoting a brochure attacking gay-affirming Christians, even those who disagree with the religious right’s odd obsession with homosexuality but believe it to be a sin, reports Right Wing Watch.

Lively is known for helping to spread anti-gay laws in Africa (an allegation he denies) and for his book The Pink Swastika, which blamed gay people for the rise of Nazi Germany.

The brochure, A Biblical answer to the question of homosexuality and the rise of “gay theology” in today’s church, is being promoted by Lively on BarbWire, the virulently homophobic website belonging to anti-gay wingnut Matt Barber.

LivelyIt includes 18 short interpretations of Bible passages that Lively says make his point that homosexuality is “the harbinger of God’s wrath.” It also states that:

  • “Not a single Biblical passage portrays homosexuality positively.”

  • “Condemnation of homosexuality predates the Mosaic code and is reaffirmed in the New Testament, so it bears no relation to the ban on ‘eating oysters’ or other supposedly ‘repealed laws of the Bible.”

  • “Jesus unequivocally condemned ALL sexual sin including homosexuality by affirming the ‘one flesh’ paradigm of Genesis.”

In the BarbWire post, Lively says the LGBT equality movement is pursuing a long-term “blueprint for supplanting Biblical morality with sexual anarchy — in essence, the overthrow of family-centered Christian civilization.”

He argues that the “one last barrier to ‘gay’ cultural hegemony remains: the Christian church. All of the battle-hardened ‘gay rights’ activists with all of their formidable resources are mobilized for an assault on Christianity itself under the hijacked rainbow banner of ‘Gay Theology. Indeed, the process has already begun, like the retreat of the tide before the tsunami.”

Lively also takes the time to sell his hatred for hard cash, referring to himself as “one of a small group of highly educated and experienced pro-family advocates available on a limited basis for speaking, seminars and Christian media interviews at sdllaw@gmail.com.”

And in case you missed it earlier this month, watch Lively's 'debate' with newly out Christian singer Vicky Beeching, AFTER THE JUMP... (the debate starts at the 5-minute mark, following a profile of Beeching.

Liberty Counsel Wingnut Matt Barber To Fight Gay Marriage With Civil Disobedience: AUDIO

Matt Barber

Matt Barber is at it again, using lies to whip up his base into a terrorized frenzy that the gays are here to destroy everything they hold dear. Things are so bad, evidently, that he's prognosticating an impending repeat of the 60's civil rights movement, complete with persecuted Christians engaging in unspecified civil disobedience.

Nevermind that the issues and stances Martin Luther King, Jr.'s civil rights movement held dear - pro labor, pro family planning, anti school prayer - are diametrically opposite to those of Barber and his ilk, Barber still feels like they're the new civil rights movement.

While this would normally be the standard eye-rolling tomfoolery, particularly when he draws the illogical connection of "counterfeit gay marriage" making modern day Christians parallel to Nazi-era Jews, Barber starts taking things in a dangerous direction. He soullessly and opportunistically capitalizes on the brutal torture and murders of Christians in Iraq, Syria, and Sudan to claim the "soft persecution" of Christians in the U.S. is just a "gateway drug" to similar impending violent persecution in the States. And of course no unhinged conspiracy theory is complete without holding Obama responsible in some way; in this case, claiming that Obama is actually aligned with the terrorist group ISIS.

One wonders how long any disobedience on the part of Barber's followers will remain civil when he's trying to convince them that the government will literally hunt them down and kill them, and how fast he will cravenly attempt to absolve himself of any responsibility.


Canadian Magazine Receives Human Rights Complaint After Publishing Matt Barber Letter

Staver

The Newfoundland Herald's recent publication of a two-page anti-gay letter to the editor by hate leader Matt Barber has prompted some readers to file a human rights complaint against the Canadian entertainment magazine.

The column, "The Coming Christian Revolt," railed against LGBT rights, compared progressives to murderers, and warned of a Christian revolution against the increasingly "unconstitutional, immoral and unjust government" rule. 

CBC reports:

Western Pride NL member Kyle Curlew, who initiated filing the complaint, said his "jaw dropped" when he first saw the two-page letter.​

"I couldn't even believe that it was published in the Herald. It was a rallying call for people to stand against LGBT rights. Essentially, hate propaganda," Curlew told CBC. 

Curlew said after reading the letter, he decided to take the matter to police.  

"We filed a human rights complaint under C-46, Section 19, which is 'propaganda and the incitement of hate towards an identifiable group.' So we are hoping to press charges."

The Newfoundland Herlad's managing editor Pam Pardy-Ghent told the CBC that the magazine has received more feedback on Barber's letter than with any other previous matter or topic and plans to further address the matter soon.

She said:

We will be responding to this issue – and running many of the responses we have received – in the next, and in future editions of The Newfoundland Herald. While free speech is very important to us, being responsive and responsible to the people of this province is as well." 


Matt Barber Compares Progressives To Murderers, Warns Of Christian Revolt

Ever since he stepped onto the scene, Matt Barber has always been "unhinged" in his rantings, putting him in a position that often makes Brian Brown come off more sensible, which is no mean feat. His latest screed, "The Coming Christian Revolt", takes that unhinged-ness and just rips the door out of the frame. In his opening paragraph, he compares liberal progressives to a sniper in a tower murdering random innocent victims:

Matt BarberFrom behind a smoking sniper rifle high atop his ivory tower peers the secular “progressive.” He surveys his many victims, strewn across the American landscape below and mockingly sneers, “War on Christianity? What war on Christianity?”

He then resumes shooting, all the while insisting that those uncooperative Christians who scatter for cover behind the word of God and the U.S. Constitution somehow suffer from a “persecution complex” (the baker, the photographer, the florist, the innkeeper, the Christian school administrator, etc.).

And it just gets nuttier from there. Logical fallacies are rampant, such as this "No True Scotsman" invocation:

Christians, true Christians – regenerate, Bible-believing Christians who strive their level best to maintain fidelity to the word of God and honor His commands – will not, indeed cannot, participate in, approve of, facilitate or encourage certain behaviors deemed by the Holy Scriptures to be immoral or sinful.

As are flat-out lies:

It is not done from hate. It is not done from bigotry. It is done neither from a position of superiority nor a desire to “impose our beliefs” upon others.

There are comparisons drawn between human behavior and physics - which as we've pointed out before is pseudointellectual claptrap; he aligns himself with the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.; and even identifies with the civil rights movement as a whole.

Yes, the systemic and institutionalized denigration and oppression of people of color in general, and black men and women in particular, that largely has them relegated to unofficial second class citizen status even to this day is used as a parallel by adherents of the largest religion in Western civilization to being told that they can't enforce their personal beliefs on the populace as a whole.

Then it all ends with the threat of mass resistance from the "persecuted":

While there are those who will give way out of fear, weakness or a desire to conform to the world, there are many others who will not. Christians must peacefully come together, lock arms and redouble our resistance to evil.

Yeah...because religious extremists have done so well protesting peacefully.


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.
