Terry Bean, a prominent Democratic Party fundraiser and co-founder of the Human Rights Campaign and the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund was arrested Wednesday on sex abuse charges involving a 15-year-old boy, The Oregonian reports:

BeanBean's lawyer, Kristen Winemiller, said in a statement that Bean has cooperated with the investigation, adding that it's her client who was the "victim of an extortion ring'' by several men.

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..

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.”

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."
