"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.

Screen Shot 2014-12-06 at 4.02.41 PMPastor Jim Garlow made rather laughable comments about gay marriage when he called in to the "Point of View," radio program saying its supporters should live in homes that plumbers and electricians built without understanding the male and female end of piping, plumbing and electrical reports Right Wing WatchGarlow, pastor of the evangelical Christian Skyline Church located in La Mesa, Calif., somehow believes this example is representative of heterosexual couplings and that male and female "parts," are needed to have a fully functioning house, whereas a house without both "doesn't work."

Garlow's comments come after the Vatican's recent summit on marriage. This week also saw other religious leaders and supporters issue nonsensical comments about gay marriage in response to the summit.

Winemiller released this statement: "Terry Bean is a highly respected community leader who has devoted his life to bettering our community. Over the course of several months in 2013-2014 Terry was the victim of an extortion ring led by several men known to law enforcement. This current arrest is connected to the ongoing investigation of that case in which Mr. Bean has fully cooperated. No allegations against Terry Bean should be taken at face value. We look forward to the opportunity to clear his name.''

Matt Barber Claims That By 'Blessing Sin' SCOTUS Will Incur 'The Wrath Of God': LISTEN

MattBarber

Following the Supreme Court's decision not to hear appeals of lower court rulings on same-sex marriage, many conservative pundits have taken to the airwaves to express their unceasing frustration. Matt Barber and Mat Staver from Liberty Counsel have been particularly peeved, warning Americans that we are "tempting the wrath of God" in a segment of their "Faith and Freedom" program.

Right Wing Watch reports:

On an episode set to run on Tuesday, Barber warns that "homosexual conduct is demonstrably and explicitly, throughout the Old and New Testament, called sin. And when you have a sin-centered redefinition of marriage and the government puts its official stamp on sin, you have the government blessing sin, well, sin cannot be blessed, it cannot be sanctified."

By trying to do so, Barber said, America is "tempting the wrath of God."

Thanks, SCOTUS, for recognizing how beautiful and equal our "sin" can be!

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..
