Anti-Gay Wingnut Peter LaBarbera Halted at Canadian Border Over Possible Hate Speech Violations

Anti-gay wingnut Peter LaBarbera was detained at the Canadian border on Thursday as immigrations officials examined whether he might be in violation of the country's laws against hate speech, LaBarbera reported on Thursday.

Wrote LaBarbera on his site after tweeting about the incident:

Upon deplaning, as I passed through Customs, I was delayed for further questioning by an official with the Canada Border Services Agency. Obviously, I had been flagged as a result of a campaign by the leftist group "Intolerance Free Weyburn," which is specifically lobbying the Canadian government to deny my entry into Canada as the alleged purveyor of "hate'" [See this AFTAH report on their lobby effort to deny me entry into Canada, and this previous report on the group's attempt to have me removed as a speaker at the Saskatchewan Pro-Life Association (SPLA) conference April 11-12.]

After questioning me about the purpose of my scheduled presentation at the SPLA event; rifling through my luggage, which contained numerous books and literature related to homosexuality (pro and con); examining the contents of my laptop and my cell phone; playing a DVD of my speech Wednesday at Sinclair Community College in Dayton, Ohio; and critically viewing AFTAH’s website–a preliminary decision was made to deny my entrance into Canada on the basis that my speech at the SPLA would violate Canada’s “Hate Propaganda” law (essentially the potential for “public incitement of hatred” against a group of people based on their “sexual orientation”). The Orwellian experience at Customs dragged on for more than three hours as a formal document was issued outlining my denial of entry under Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (citing the Hate Propaganda code). Finally, after 1:00 A.M., I was released pending my appeal of the decision today (Friday). My passport was seized until I arrive back at Customs today at noon for my appeal before a “Minister’s Delegate Review.”

No word yet on that appeal.

Russian Gay Activist Disrupts Scott Lively’s Speech at Anti-LGBT Event in D.C. – VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-02-21 at 9.39.37 PM

At a ‘pro-family’ press conference in D.C. on Friday, evangelist Scott Lively was caught on camera being heckled by Viacheslav Revin, a Russian gay activist and refugee in the U.S.

Queer Russia reports:

Revin disrupted Scott Lively’s presentation and made a statement with a help of Ellen Sturtz translating his speech into English:

"Homophobia is a first step toward dictatorship! Putin is a dictator who condemned to death thousands of orphaned children by banning foreign adoptions. Putin is a corrupted thief who invents scapegoats and deflects attention from his crimes. His latest invention is the anti-gay law, so gays in modern Russia feel like jews back in the USSR. Declaring support for Putin means denying the democracy and demanding racial segregation. This is what Putin doing in Russia now in regards to gays and migrant workers from Central Asia."

Lively-protest1Lively's speech was intended to announce the creation of the Coalition for Family Values, which includes Peter LaBarbera, Linda Harvey, and others dedicated to “confronting LGBT agenda” and supporting the Russian government’s anti-gay efforts.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

Earlier this week, HRC released a video denouncing Lively and other prominent U.S. anti-gay activists for their work in helping Russia pass its gay propaganda law.

Peter LaBarbera Has No Clue How To Enforce Criminalization Of Homosexuality: AUDIO

Peter LaBarbera

Anti-gay activist Peter LaBarbera seldom has any clue what he's talking about - something we have documented at great length - but a recent interview with Alan Colmes LaBarbera revealed a new level of how clueless he is. After hitting the tired bigoted talking points of how gay couples are unfit to raise children because it would normalize perversion, Colmes asked him how he would plan to ban homosexuality and punish violators. Rather unexpectedly, LaBarbera didn't know how to respond. He tried avoiding Colmes' inquiry, but was eventually pressed into admitting:

“I don’t know what the punishment [for homosexuality] should be.”

Mildly shocking given that in Jamaica, where he recently proselytized to keep anti-gay laws on the books, homosexuality can earn a jail sentence of up to ten years. Colmes then took him to task, which you can hear in the interview below.

Anti-Gay Wingnut Peter LaBarbera Went to Jamaica to Foment Homophobia

Illinois-based anti-gay wingnut Peter 'Porno Pete' LaBarbera traveled to Jamaica to stir up homophobia.

The Gleaner reports: Labarbera

"The United States has no business lecturing anybody about sexual morality. America has rampant abortions, rampant promiscuity, and I stand wholeheartedly with Jamaicans and encourage you all to hold to your beliefs, " LaBarbera told The Gleaner.

LaBarbera made the comments Saturday following The JamaicaCoalition for a Healthy Society International Human Rights conference at the Jamaica Conference Centre in downtown Kingston.

"We are all watching Jamaica to see what happens (buggery law), and I believe if Jamaica can stand up and not bow to the pressure, you can be an example to the world. There is no need to follow anybody," LaBarbera said.

LaBarbera's appearance only serves to support laws criminalizing homosexuality, as if there is not enough mob violence and killing going on there without his help.

You may remember LaBarbera from his pathetic protest outside the Illinois marriage equality bill ceremony.


Wingnut Peter LaBarbera Angered By Secular Thanksgiving And Those Giving Thanks For Gay Rights

Peter LaBarbera, a perennial unfavorite here at Towleroad and the head of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality has issued another deplorable statement of homophobia and intolerance. This time his rage is holiday-specific, taking aim at the shameful "thanks" that "homosexuality advocates" give for the progress of LGBT rights during, well, Thanksgiving. LaBarbera sees this appropriation of a decidedly American holiday as an affront to God, who should be receiving more credit from the general public on this most celebratory of days. 

PeterlabarberaRight Wing Watch reports content from LaBarbera's website:

As secularism and – dare I say – godlessness deepen in these United States, many are leaving God out of Thanksgiving Day. Language always follows the heart: have you noticed the habit that has crept in of being thankful for this and that – without being thankful to God?

Now homosexuality advocates (and others) have taken this regrettable phenomenon a step further: using Thanksgiving as an opportunity to be “thankful for” developments that are decidedly ungodly – e.g., the advance of out-and-proud homosexualism, including “same-sex marriage,” in the United States.

I came upon this homosexual website article timed for Thanksgiving about homosexuals being thankful for various “gay rights” achievements, including more lesbians on TV. We know as Christians and Bible-respecting Jews that Our Heavenly Father is not smiling on that.

Though the first Thanksgiving celebrations in America may have occurred amongst Puritans and Pilgrims "thankful" for their new-found religious liberty (and soon to impose harsh theological restrictions on other groups), one would be hard-pressed to constitute the annual holiday as a purely religious one. LaBarbera, of course, disagrees.

And so, we have come full circle: citizens of a nation founded “under God” use our annual day of gratitude — conceived to humbly give thanks to God — to celebrate sin. How insidious is the “Progressive” Left’s radical redefinition of everything noble – patriotism, liberty, equality, and now even God Himself – to advance their destructive agendas?

What were you thankful for this Turkey Day? I know Peter LaBarbera did not cross my mind.
