Peter LaBarbera: Obama Will 'Answer to God' for Normalizing 'Terrible Sin of Homosexual Behavior' - AUDIO

In a radio interview last week, Americans for Truth About Homosexuality wingnut Peter LaBarbera railed against President Obama, who will supposedly have to "answer to God" for his role promoting the "terrible sin" of LGBT equality.

Said LaBarbera:

I don't think Barack Obama has been more loyal to any special interest group than the homosexual activist movement. What he's done for that movement, he's by far the most pro-homosexual president in our history. He's done great damage to the morality of this country by helping persuade people that this sin is okay...

LaBarbera also lit into the Republican Party for not speaking out louder against gay rights and for not doing a better job marketing its anti-gay platform to African American and Latino voters.

Wingnut Peter LaBarbera Urges 'Massive Civil Disobedience' Following SCOTUS Decision

LaBarbera

Americans for Truth About Homosexuality president Peter LaBarbera has issued an infuriated statement following the Supreme Court's decision not to hear same-sex marriage appeals cases from the fourth, seventh, and tenth circuit courts. In it he urges others who feel wronged to fight back with "civil disobedience on a massive scale" in those states whose bans have been overturned. From "statesmen" to everyday "citizens," LaBarbera wants everyone to get involved; as he so astutely points out, "if 'We the People's' votes do not count, then We live not in freedom but under tyranny."

Right Wing Watch reported his statement:

We are witnessing a "gradual Roe v. Wade" by which unelected judges impose homosexual 'marriage' on the nation. Hubris rules the day as millions of Americans' votes defending actual marriage (one man, one woman) are negated by one court ruling after another. Each decision bastardizes America's noble quest for racial justice by invoking "equality" for unions based on disordered sexual behavior that can never be "equal" to God-ordained sex within marriage. Now the nation's highest court is content to let the ongoing disenfranchisement become law...

The notion that nine men and women in black robes know more about what constitutes marriage than 76 percent of Oklahoma's voters is insulting and preposterous. Now is the time for civil disobedience on a massive scale: we hope that statesmen and citizens alike--in Oklahoma, Wisconsin, Indiana, Utah and Virginia—indeed, any state where the people's will has been robbed by elitist judges—will reassert their state sovereignty against escalating judicial supremacy. 

LaBarbera makes a somewhat coherent argument here, one that at least falls in line with the beliefs of many conservative groups across the country. It all goes downhill, though, when he invokes shoddy right-wing Christian "facts."

Homosexual activists yearn to be told that their defining sin is not a sin at all—and legalizing genderless "marriage" is their holy grail to achieve that end. "Love is love," we are told, or rather scolded. But God is not mocked: the Scriptures are clear that homosexual practice is an offense against both God and the very bodies of those who practice it (as is all sexual immorality).

The truly loving thing for Christians to do is not to "bless" same-sex relationships but to guide men and women caught up in false homosexual identities to the One, Jesus, who will forgive them and guide them to a life pleasing to God.

With 30+ states now, or soon, affording the right to marry for same-sex couples, we'll see how many homosexuals take LaBarbera up on his Christian kindness.


Hate Group World Congress Of Families Launches Petition Against Human Rights Campaign - VIDEO

6a00d8341c730253ef01b8d06b1176970c-800wi

The World Congress of Families (WCF) has issued a petition demanding that Human Rights Campaign (HRC) stop its “hate-filled” attack on the listed hate group's important work of denying gay people their rights and spreading anti-gay bigotry around the world.

The WCF petition follows a September HRC report that exposed some of the most vitriolic activists in the U.S. promoting anti-gay bigotry abroad including Benjamin Bull, Peter La Barbera, Sharon Slater, Mat Staver, Robert Oscar Lopez, and of course the “work” of the WCF.

Despite the relentless and dangerous hatred spewed worldwide by these and other groups and individuals - stand up Scott Lively - the WCF petition demands that HRC be nicer in future and vows to continue its global anti-gay mission.

6a00d8341c730253ef01b7c6ea1768970b-800wiRevealing that WCF and their ilk are actually the victims in all of this -  a common theme among anti-gay bigots - the petition argues that “the HRC’s hate report has helped make clear to the global community what is at stake, it has revealed that HRC and its allies view traditional religious views on sexual morality and marriage as ‘hate’, it has taken the mask off of the new face of cultural imperialism.”

Despite the WCF’s claims to have “consistently denounced hate and violence,” it is one of the most influential groups in the U.S. promoting and coordinating anti-LGBT bigotry, ideology and legislation abroad.

According to Ty Cobb, HRC Foundation’s director of Global Engagement, the WCF:

"Coordinates a dangerous group of activists spreading anti-LGBT rhetoric and promoting laws and policies that criminalize LGBT people and the speech of those who support them.

"They praise Vladimir Putin as the standard-bearer for traditional ‘family values’ and honored a Nigerian activist who claims LGBT advocates conspire with the terrorist group Boko Haram with a ‘Woman of the Year’ award.  

"Their advocacy abroad harms LGBT people from Russia to Nigeria and beyond.  Hate is not an American value, and we must expose and work to stop the World Congress of Families and their extremist allies.”

The WCF intends to bring its annual convention to Salt Lake City in 2015.

Anti-gay Activist Peter LaBarbera Compares Himself to a Persecuted Jew Living in Nazi Germany: AUDIO

Labarbera

Joining Scott Lively and Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver in their baffled frustration with being included in the Human Rights Campaign's new "Export of Hate" report, Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality likened himself and the others on the hate list to persecuted Jews living in Nazi Germany.

Said LaBarbera on Janet Mefferd's conservative radio program:

"We just have to trust in God to protect us. But I do think that they're doing to us what the Nazis did to the Jews. They're intentionally demonizing us..."

Human Rights Campaign Exposes Extreme Anti-Gay American Activists

Export of hate

The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) has released a new report that exposes some of the most vitriolic activists in the U.S. promoting anti-gay bigotry abroad.

These extremists claim that LGBT people are responsible for the Holocaust, the Rwandan genocide, and the spread of HIV/AIDS; that LGBT people are luring away children; that acceptance of LGBT people will lead to the destruction of the family; and that the death penalty could be an appropriate punishment for simply being gay.

6a00d8341c730253ef01a73e170bc2970d-800wiHRC points out that these anti-gay activists often secure audiences with heads of government and their spouses, testify before politicians, build relationships with community leaders and other prominent citizens, lobby United Nations delegates, get involved in the drafting of national constitutions, and intervene in international court cases that affect the lives and rights of LGBT people.

The report titled The Export of Hate, which focuses on dangerous homophobe Scott Lively and others, details their connections and associations, nations in which they are active publicly, available information about their resources and examples of their public bigotry and hatred of gay people.

Lively has been accused of crimes against humanity for inciting anti-gay hatred in Uganda and aiding in the passing of their "Kill the Gays" bill.

The report also exposes the "work" of Benjamin Bull, Jordan Sekulow, Peter La Barbera, Paul Cameron, Sharon Slater, Robert Oscar Lopez, Brian Brown, Larry Jacobs, Brian Camenker, Mat Staver, Michael Brown, Janice Shaw Crouse and Scott Stirm.

Ty Cobb, HRC Foundation’s director of Global Engagement, said:

“Hate is not an American value, and we must expose and fight these individuals and their extremist allies. This is a destructive group of activists spreading anti-LGBT rhetoric, promoting laws that criminalize LGBT people, and seeking to restrict their speech and those who support them.  Although their views may find little traction in the United States, public opinion in many other nations makes their words and global advocacy fundamentally dangerous.”

Anti-Gay Activist Peter LaBarbera Tells Michael Sam to Seek 'Ex-Gay' Therapy in Open Letter

Kiss

Hate-monger Peter LaBarbera and his right-wing anti-gay organization Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) today issued an open letter to Michael Sam, August's OUT Magazine cover-boy, essentially telling Sam to seek ex-gay therapy:

6a00d8341c730253ef01a5119c7921970c-800wi…Since “coming out” you are also modeling a lifestyle that the cost for those living it, has been unpublicized but appalling—as it has for society. The troubling fact is minorities are suffering most and in growing numbers…

Believe it or not, no one is born “gay”; molestation, emotional  deprivation, parental or peer rejection, or other traumatic factors can foster same-sex attraction–but many men and women have managed it, diminished it, or eliminated it altogether. [See these heartwarming ex-"gay" testimonies.] Many accomplished this through Reparative Therapy and counseling, despite the relentless, unwarranted condemnation of and campaign against both by self-serving “gay” activists.

What we hope for from you, Michael, is that you don’t make your feelings, well-publicized as they have been, your claim to fame. Your achievements on the football field will earn you a legacy you can be proud of; your “coming out” as one celebrating homosexuality as normative can earn you only regret, as well as notoriety among millions of us.

Earlier this year LaBarbera was arrested in Canada. He also complained about being "forced" to watch the kiss Sam shared with his boyfriend Vito Cammisano after he was drafted into the NFL, calling it "homosexual perversion."
