Religious right laments end of (their) world

What If You Threw a Rapture and Nobody Came?

Here’s a press release form Peter LaBarbera, the head of an officially-designated hate group, and one of the more influential (and nuttier) religious right leaders (he’s worked at most of the top groups). Peter is vewy vewy angwy that the gays won, and that the Republicans weren’t as hateful as they should have been.

A few of the choice quotes below:

  • Tuesday was a devastating day for pro-family advocates.
  • No longer can pro-family advocates say that homosexual “marriage” has never been voted in by the people.
  • Tuesday’s “gay” victories were abetted by an unofficial Republican Party strategy that eschews discussion of “social issues.”
  • We need to stop conceding the moral high ground in a fearful bid to appear “tolerant.”

So just to recap: The reason the haters lost is because the Republican party helped us, and religious right nuts were “too tolerant.” Uh huh.

Here’s the full release:

Contact: Peter LaBarbera, Americans For Truth About Homosexuality

CHICAGO, Nov. 8, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ — The following is submitted by Peter LaBarbera:

Tuesday was a devastating day for pro-family advocates concerned about the advance of same-sex “marriage” and homosexual activism. While politics does not decide moral and spiritual Truth, it is an indicator of the heart of our nation. On Nov. 6, America took another giant step away from God and our Judeo-Christian heritage.

Here are the Gay Lobby’s biggest victories:

  • Barack Obama, the most pro-homosexual president in U.S. history, won reelection after embracing homosexual “marriage”;
  • Voters in Maine, Maryland and Washington State passed ballot measures legalizing “same-sex marriage”;
  • Minnesota voters rejected an amendment to preserve natural marriage as one-man, one-woman after 32 states previously had passed similar marriage amendments;
  • Democrat Rep. Tammy Baldwin became the first open lesbian to win a U.S. Senate seat – defeating Republican former Wisconsin governor Tommy Thompson. Five other open homosexuals and a bisexual atheist (Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ) won House seats;
  • Judge David Wiggins – one of seven Iowa Supreme Court judges to legalize “gay marriage” in 2009 – survived a pro-family campaign against him and won retention. In 2010, Iowa voters tossed out three fellow Supreme Court judges who were part of the same “gay marriage” ruling.

No longer can pro-family advocates say that homosexual “marriage” has never been voted in by the people. Thanks to a never-ending bombardment of media-, educational- and pop-culture propaganda in favor of All Things Gay, homosexual “marriage” is now semi-popular, at least in Blue States. And there is no sugar-coating how damaging Obama’s reelection will be to this already depraved nation.

Tuesday’s “gay” victories were abetted by an unofficial Republican Party strategy that eschews discussion of “social issues.” Yet even as GOP elites recoiled from the cultural battles over abortion and “gay rights,” homosexual militants pressed more aggressively than ever for their goal of using government power to force acceptance of their aberrant lifestyle.

Sadly, there is a “passion gap” or maybe a “boldness gap” between LGBT activists and their overly defensive pro-family opponents. Many timid, guilt-ridden Christians make rotten Culture Warriors, while unapologetic “gays” excel at it. So what is the next step for defenders of sexual normalcy?

Pro-family advocates must stop looking for short cuts and return to their principled duty of educating citizens – especially brainwashed youth — on why homosexual behavior is wrong, unnatural, unhealthy and – most important – changeable. (Thousands of former homosexuals testify to the reality of ex-”gay” change.)

Reframing the debate to “defending marriage” – a “positive” approach once seen as the salvation of the pro-family movement – only gave well-organized “gay” activists a big, fat target to shoot at: “Marriage.” And on Tuesday, they scored several direct hits on that target. By pretending that the fight to preserve real marriage is somehow separate from homosexuality, pro-family advocates undermined their core principles – leading to long-term (and even short-term) defeat.

Who are we kidding? This titanic fight has always been about homosexuality, not just “defending marriage.” We need to stop conceding the moral high ground in a fearful bid to appear “tolerant”: one pro-family group, Protect Marriage Maine, asserted that “same-sex couples are entitled to respect” – a claim at odds with historic Scriptural teaching. While Christians should respect all persons as made in God’s image, we must never “respect” behaviors and relationships grounded in sexual sin.

The normalization of homosexuality, which God calls anabomination (sic), is one of the most amazing marketing stories of our age. It is also a big business: the “gay” Human Rights Campaign spent $20 million this election cycle. Nevertheless, every homosexual triumph is a Pyrrhic victory because it elevates a destructive and immoral perversion to the realm of noble-sounding “civil rights.”

Those committed to defending God’s wonderful design of male-female human sexuality and offering the hope of the Gospel to homosexual strugglers must not grow weary in well-doing. Shame on Christians if our commitment to defending Truth pales in comparison to the zeal of “gay” activists in defending their lies.

Peter LaBarbera is president of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH), a group devoted to opposing and exposing homosexual activism.

Oh, and by the way, those “thousands of former homosexuals” are the same “thousands of former homosexuals” the religious right claimed to have 14 years ago.  It’s interesting that you can supposedly “pray away the gay,” yet the numbers of “ex-gays” hasn’t increase in a decade and a half.

And just in case you’re curious, here’s a little more about this hate group and its leader, from the Southern Poverty Law Center – note who he’s worked for, a who’s who of religious right-dom:

A one-time reporter for the conservative Washington Times, LaBarbera has been an energetic campaigner against “the radical homosexual agenda” since at least 1993, when he launched The Lambda Report, which claimed to do first-hand reporting to expose its gay enemies. Over the years, he has been an official with Accuracy in Media, Concerned Women for America, the Family Research Council and the Illinois Family Institute (see below for the last three). He left the Illinois Family Institute, where he’d been executive director, in 2006.

AFTAH is notable for its posting of the utterly discredited work of Paul Cameron (of the Family Research Institute; see below), who has claimed that gays and lesbians live vastly shorter lives than heterosexuals. Among the Cameron propaganda published by AFTAH are 2007 claims that gays and lesbians in Norway and Denmark live 24 fewer years than heterosexuals. Reviewing that claim, Danish epidemiologist Morten Frisch found that it had no scientific basis. LaBarbera himself, in 2002, compared the alleged dangers of homosexuality to those of “smoking, alcohol and drug abuse.” Similarly, AFTAH’s website carries essays describing homosexuality as a “lethal behavior addiction,” a “dangerous” practice that is “neither normal nor benign.”

In 2007, LaBarbera claimed there was “a disproportionate incidence of pedophilia” among gay men — yet another false assertion. The same year, he posted an open letter to the Lithuanian people from long-time gay-basher Scott Lively (see Abiding Truth Ministries, above), who has made a series of false claims about gays running the German Nazi Party. In the piece posted to the AFTAH website, Lively said homosexuals are trying to take away free speech from all opponents of gays and to silence all religious opinions on the matter.

Yes, I’m sure the Republican party regrets not taking this guy’s advice.

    Has it occurred to you that my name might not be Tim?

    I am a Buddhist / Wiccan woman who spent three years studying Hinduism in India. And I am a bisexual woman who has been married to another woman for nearly 14 years. Your Bible refers to me and my wife, by virtue of being women, as nothing more than chattel property.

    Your much-translated culturally-based religious book and your barely coherent analysis of it is entirely wasted on me and mine.

    Dear Tim,

    Thank you so very much for your response. It has been some time since anyone has responded. The silence has truly been deafening. I made a change a few hours ago. Please visit http://www.2thefirstscandal.blogspot.com for a more complete exegesis and the evidence for this exegesis. I realize everyone detests the exegesis for many, many reasons. But sometimes we have to try to rise above our fear and hatred. May I make a suggestion to you: show and share. See what your friends, pastor, priest, rabbi, etc. have to say about this whole business. If something is wrong, someone, somewhere, certainly should be intelligent enough to discover what is wrong. Also, be aware that there are now two, not one, blogs to visit: http://www.thefirstscandal.blogspot.com and the one I previously mentioned.

    Best wishes always,

    I’m always shaking my head at how these guys have hijacked “pro-family”. As my self-disciplined, intelligent and polite three-year old son takes a nap after a half a day of playing on the playground and reciting his ABC’s, I look at photos on my wall of our beautiful family. My husband and I, both vets committed to doing right by ourselves and our son, are prime examples of family. Being pro-family is the idea that a family as at an ideal state when it’s filled with compassion, mutual respect and positivity. It’s not about values of hate and exclusion and rigidness. I am pro-family, and we are all too.

  • Dakotahgeo

    LOLOL… there were many days when I thought (and the parishioners proved) that “cult” was way too lenient a descriptor for such people. To be sure, there were many good Baptists but they thankfully stayed away from the soothsayers and tax collectors (sans Matthew, of course). Since they sold their political soul to the Tea Party, I don’t see much of a comeback for today’s Republicans. Kind of sad, no?? All the best to the victorious GLBT community and their Tuesday night victories!

    It would be REALLY difficult to drive a car into a PO Box. Besides, AFTAH is in Naperville, about 40 miles west of Chicago. Porno Pete works from his dildo strewn basement. When his wife finds out what he’s been doing down there, she’ll beat him within an inch of his miserable life – again.

  • Phil

    He didn’t leave the Illinois Family Institute – he was asked to leave. He attempted to bring about a referendum on marriage equality to Illinois by putting the question to a popular vote and writing into the state constitution. We’re not set up for such a thing – if he had been able to pull it off, it would have been advisory only. When the petitions were handed in, there were so many unregistered names, so many names with the wrong address, or no person at the address listed, or forgeries, etc. the LGBT communities in Chicago (Cook Co.), Rockford (Winnebago Co.) and Springfield (Sangamon Co.) were able to verify that half the signatures were invalid and the entire initiative was thrown out. Shortly after that, he left to restart AFTAH (Americans for Truth About Homosexuality), which has become a crude chariacature of an antigay organization and has been listed as an antigay hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, along with his former employer, IFI which made the mistake of quoting him on their website.

    His “radio program” is no longer broadcast on any radio station. The Chicago area outlet WYLL-FM, which was the only station that carried it, dropped it last May, either because he couldn’t afford to buy the airtime, or it was too twisted even for their audience. This guy is just too extreme and plain old nuts to do anything other than what he’s doing now. The truth about Americans for Truth About Homosexuality is that anything they, and LaBarbera, touch quickly turns to sand.

  • colleen2

    “Defenders of sexual normalcy” Dear God, I hope they run with that.

  • lynchie

    You are right but they wrap the bible and religion into the argument so we feel queasy of attacking the issues for fear of offending them. Well the gloves are off. They can live in their little enclaves and the rest of us will enjoy the rest of the world. They want a world governed by their fear of change. I was brought up in Canada by two lower middle class parents who taught us to judge people by their actions not on the beliefs of someone who wrote some fiction a couple of thousand years ago. Change will be hard for the Christian right and the GOP I don’t believe either of the groups are capable of accepting the growing non white population or same sex marriage or a black President or a female President. The fear mongering of the right does not work anymore there are enough of us who accept people for who they are not what they are. And that is a good thing.

    Absolutely. For all the yawping from the homophobic haters, complaining about their particular religious definition of marriage being violated, they’ll never admit that in fact they’re infringing on the rights of everyone else who belongs to religions that DO favor same-sex marriage, as well as the right to freedom FROM religion for those who want a purely secular civil contract to go along with whatever vows they might care to swear.

    So, these guys are just pissed off poor losers but not everyone in the world believes in their antiquated and antedulvian morality tales deemed to be from their God. Finally, it’s about damned time that are more of us who continue to eschew their warped values and aren’t afraid to tell them they can take their religious morality and shove it where it belongs — right up their own butts.

    I don’t believe it’s an issue of morality — it’s a civil rights issue and that’s how it needs to be under the law unless they want to establish their own Christian Sharia Law only communities. if that is the case, then those communities need to be gated, surrounded with concertina wire and clearly identified as being a community that welcomes homophobes, xenophobes and whatever other phobes there are.

    C’mon, you fundy folks, take a gander at the Equal Protection clause of the–our, your, my–Constitution. You can’t keep separating yourselves from the rest of society. Insularity breeds some really unpleasant emotions, and you are walling yourselves up against a threat that simply does not exist. My wife and I (male) are married, and I guaran-damn-tee you that not only were our numerous gay friends not a threat to us, they even came to the wedding. They love us, we love them. See how simple that is?

    If some Christian has a weak marriage/relationship, it ain’t because some flamer walker across their path. It’s because you’re (one or both) both selfish and uncommunicative, amongst other things.

    If La Babs is worried about anything in reality, it is his future income. What skills, pray tell, can a professional homophobe market to the rest in the world should his source of hate-the-gays-organization funding dry up?

    It is sorry enough that the self-proclaimed arbiter of all-things-Christian overlooks how the GOP marginalized women through the buffoonery of several high level candidates while discussing “social issues” enough to pretty much throw the election to Obama. But La Babs is even sorrier for thinking the public didn’t slap the religious right down because they are just sick and tired of arrogant right wing pretend “Christians” trying to order and demand what rights the rest of Americans are allowed.

    The Republican Party lost this election for lots of reasons, but one of the foremost was their ridiculous and insidious social agenda. People are tired of a bunch of old, arrogant fake “Christian” white men trying to resurrect the days of segregation and spousal ownership through the government. The Religious Right lost because their overreach on social issues came back to bite them on the ass. They lost on referendums trying to steal public funds to finance “religious” schools, lost on referendums to remove public funding from any abortions, and lost on same-sex marriage amendments and referendums. Their cynical, divisive, and intimidation and fear agenda was roundly defeated on almost every level involving every one of their pet “social issues.”

    So of course, La Babs needs to worry about his paycheck. A few losses like Tuesday could cause the loss of all meaningful funding for hate organizations.

    I had tears of joy when “Senator” Tammy Baldwin won and gay marriages prevailed however we cannot afford to be complacent. We still have long tough fight ahead of us. I want to start petition to have churches investigated for vote peddling and their tax exempt status revoked as soon as possible. Tax the churches!

  • lynchie

    These groups could care less about the family. They care about power. They want to determine what every one else thinks. They want to control women in all ways. That is why women on the whole make less they are trying to force them to go home cook and clean and be a good little provider of sex and a chicken pot pie when needed. They wrap themselves in the bible but really don’t care if people are hungry or sick or homeless. Thank god that is coming to an end. They are seeing their control slipping away. I am convinced the Internet has a big part to play in this change in the mind set of America because we can go online and read other thoughts, ideas and opinions. No longer is the bible only in Latin so we depend on the priest to translate it for us. People can think for themselves and I respect those who are conservative but I demand tolerance. No one person or group should tell women, children, latinos and minorities what they can and can’t do. It is about time. The republican party as we know it will go the way of the dodo bird and be nothing but a sad memorty.

    If Romney got elected,then those religious groups that complains about religious intolerance would really have something to bitch about.

  • Hue-Man

    I hate the use of “pro-family” as if LGBT people are “anti-family” (I feel the same way about “pro-life”). If anything, the LGBT family is more closely knit and welcoming than the anti-gay hate groups. Indeed, the recent “GAY AGENDA” items are about family – marriage equality, right to adopt, equal access to housing, equal rights to family access in medical situations, etc.

    These bigots should be challenged at every occasion and forced to say what they mean – “anti-LGBT bigotry” is a good start (much like “anti-abortion”). Words matter.

    The religious right has been so ugly—and just so excessively loud. Their vocal ranting and raving is so disproportionate since they are clearly in the minority of the population, as Tuesday’s election results demonstrate. I don’t expect The Rapture to remove them from society entirely. Post-election, I would be satisfied with The Partial Rapture, in which only their big mouths would go away. The media is entirely too obsessed with giving fundamentalist Xtians attention for the sake of “balance.” The national dialogue would be well served if either the Xtianists turned down the volume voluntarily or the media turned down the volume for them.
