Make America scared again

milkboys News 8 Comments

Mission America’s Linda Harvey is one of the religious right’s most vociferous homophobes with a long string of stupid statements meant to spur outrage and disgust in her followers.

With a string of greatest “hits” (among other things she said that fighting anti-LGBT bullying is sexual abuse) at her back, Harvey must have noticed her ilk doesn’t get as much attention any longer now that people can see the truth is the exact opposite of what she claims.

So on her recent radio show, she invited one of America’s other most notorious anti-LGBT activists, Peter LaBarbera from the Orwellian-named “Americans for Truth About Homosexuality ,” to discuss what to do about the increasing acceptance of LGBT people.

The newspaper The Stranger writes:

“It used to be easy for people like Harvey to horrify straights. For centuries—for millennia—they only had to point to a couple of clobber passages in the Bible. They keep repeating those passages to each other (and screaming them at us), of course, but when they had to come up with a more secular rationalization for their hatred, they went with poop. And it worked! For decades, all they had to say was ‘They put their pee-pees in each other’s poopers!’ and that was enough.”

“Anti-gay Christian bigots used to horrify believers by herding them into church basements to watch footage from gay pride parades mixed in with graphic clips of extreme gay porn — gay men beating each other, pissing on each other, fisting each other — and that was pretty reliably horrifying back when straight people could pretend that other straight people didn’t do and enjoy the exact same perversions.”

So what’s their answer? Make people think we’re icky again.

“So many of these groups are predators,” she said according to Right Wing Watch. “I believe that the homosexual clubs in schools are just red flags for predators. I think that they exist there as an audience to continue to fast track kids into the lifestyle, network with adults—I mean, who knows what goes on there.”

“How do we re-horrify people about the sin of homosexuality?” she wondered. “People are becoming so comfortable with this, even people on our side. We need to re-horrify them.”

  1. America is regressing back to its “vintage” homophobic ways (and laws) due to the election of Trump-Pence. The far-right have now come out of the baseboards to rail against anything even remotely accepting of homosexuality in our culture and laws. They think NOW that it’s the right time to start outlawing anything related to homosexuals, transgenderism and anything in- between.

  2. re: ‘They put their pee-pees in each other’s poopers!’

    Conveniently ignoring: Heterosexuals put their pee-pees in their partner’s poopers to avoid pregnancies! For thousands of years!

  3. This horrible person is just about right about gays as she is right about the existence of God. That is, totally wrong!

    She is also proof that abortion is not just a right, but a necessity, for all fetuses who will grow into bigot haters. If only…

    These people should really learn to keep their mad fantasies to themselves and not impose their unconstitutional rules as the law of the country for all, including atheists, people who are just as deranged as these bigots but happen to believe in a different spaghetti monster, or even regular Christians.

    I visited their “Americans For Truth About Homosexuality”, this site is so wrong it’s not even funny. The name of the site already hints at a conspiracy that does not exist (the “truth” about homosexuality is hidden by gay activists to the American people), but they also still advance the notion of a “gay agenda” and they still deny the latest science about sexual orientation being determined at an early age. Of course, they have to, since they also promote reparative destruction. Sorry, reparative “therapy”, as if using the name “therapy” makes it official, or means that homosexuality is a disease that can be cured, against what all medical associations said about the matter.

    The good thing is that they are very vocal but they are very few, and they are very old too, so they are dying off and newer generations are better educated than these bigots who should never be allowed near children.

  4. I believe that the homosexual clubs in schools are just red flags for predators…
    there are whole schools JUST for religion, I doubt they see the irony in that

  5. I don’t think there is much chance of us gays going back in the closet any time soon in the west. These groups are just bastions of the few who have lost the war of convincing a majority that we are not all just part of human kind and probably just ignoring them into obscurity is the best course.

  6. Let us hope born-again Christianity is on its way out. It’s sad that Ronald Reagan courted them and made them part of the Republican party. What has the teachings of Christianity to do with moralizing and taking money and healthcare away from the poor?

    Peter LaBarbera has been doing his porn parade for decades. He’s completely obsessed with homosexuality. What kind of person shows blue haired old ladies hard core gay porn, if not someone who is trying very hard to fight their own repressed urges to have gay sex? You have only to look at George Rekers to see what is going on.

    Maybe someday LaBarbera’s closet skeletons will come out for a dance.

    1. “Let us hope born-again Christianity is on its way out.”
      In the remainder of the world where islam isn’t already more prominent, not a chance. Never if not a single high government leader will speak the truth and proclaim PUBLICLY that “religions” are nothing but BULLSHIT with only 2 goals: to CONTROL SOCIETIES and to STEAL WEALTH. “god” is NOTHING more than a diversion for the stupid and weak-minded.

        That will never happen, their goals are far too similar and the religious are much more politically active then those that aren’t. Far less risky for the politician to either make religious leaders their allies and/or manipulate them into submission.
