A new National Park Service initiative to recognize locations significant in the history of the LGBT rights movement such as the Stonewall Inn has obviously upset Religious Right activists, including Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality. In an interview Friday with OneNewsNow – a “news” site run by the American Family Association, which is currently leading a bizarre campaign against the Harvey Milk commemorative stamp – LaBarbera said that the new LGBT history initiative is “bringing down” America to the point where it “cannot...

Americans For Truth About Homosexuality president Peter LaBarbera – who has joined other anti-gay activists in attacking the media for airing footage of Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend after learning that he was drafted by the St. Louis Rams – appeared on “Crosstalk” yesterday to discuss the kiss. LaBarbera blasted media outlets for having “reported the kiss without giving the other side of people who would voice disapproval of people being forced and subjected to through the media these homosexual acts, the homosexual perversion.” “Crosstalk...

Peter LaBarbera is incensed that he had to see a picture of Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend after he learned that he would be drafted by the St. Louis Rams. LaBarbera censored the picture on the homepage of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality, explaining that “AFTAH will block homosexual kisses because they are indecent and teach impressionable youth that perversion is OK.” Like other anti-gay activists, he criticized Sam and warned he “could lead many young men astray by popularizing a grievous sin” and push American culture “willy-nilly into godlessness...

Peter LaBarbera said today that his Mother’s Day was ruined by the sight of “snuggling Starbucks lesbians” in an ad the coffee company put out to mark the holiday. The Americans for Truth about Homosexuality president was angry that the ad not only included a “deviant and immoral” lesbian couple but also featured what he considered to be “an alphabetic homoerotic embrace.” LaBarbera lamented that a boycott of the coffee chain, championed by anti-gay groups including the National Organization for Marriage and the Family Research Council, has grown...

Appearing last week on the TV web show America’s Survival, Americans For Truth About Homosexuality president Peter LaBarbera attacked Modern Family and other TV shows for portraying gays as “the most noble” characters. LaBarbera seemed to chide Modern Family both for including a gay couple and not focusing on the couple enough: “We see Modern Family where you’ve got two homosexual men raising an infant or a toddler like it’s nothing, like it’s nothing out of the ordinary. Of course, that’s intentional. They don’t even make that the main... MORE >

Americans For Truth About Homosexuality president Peter LaBarbera weighed in yesterday on the ongoing controversy among anti-choice activists as to whether groups focusing on criminalizing abortion should also campaign against LGBT rights. In an interview with Janet Mefferd, LaBarbera insisted that opponents of abortion rights should join his anti-LGBT crusade, pointing to transgender people who undergo sex reassignment surgery as an issue that the anti-choice movement should be concerned about because it involves “breasts.” LaBarbera should rest easy, as the majority of anti-...

Americans For Truth About Homosexuality head Peter LaBarbera is demanding the notoriously anti-gay Liberty University fire theatre artist Geoffrey Goldberg, who was hired to choreograph the school’s production of Mary Poppins, because he is gay.

Liberty University has responded to news reports by saying that Goldberg is an “independent contractor supplied to the university through a third-party... MORE >

Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality was not happy last month when Chick-Fil-A CEO Dan Cathy said he was going to stop speaking out publicly against marriage equality, calling him a “sellout” who was “hurting the cause.” The anti-gay activist was even further dispirited by the charity World Vision’s decision – since reversed – to recognize the marriages of its gay employees. Speaking with talk show host Janet Mefferd yesterday, LaBarbera told evangelicals that you can’t “call yourself a Christian” and also... MORE >
