There are few Religious Right activists who can match Americans for Truth’s Peter LaBarbera when it comes to militant anti-gay hostility, but one who can, and regularly does, is Matt Barber, Director of Cultural Affairs with Liberty Counsel and Associate Dean of the Liberty University School of Law. The view of LaBarbera and Barber are so closely aligned that Barber is even headlining the AFTHA fundraising banquet later this month.
Now, via Pam’s House Blend, we learn that Barber has a book out that has received predictably glowing blurbs from the likes of Tim and Beverly LaHaye, Joseph Farah, Robert Knight, and Mat Staver, but it also received blurbs from Tom DeLay, Mike Huckabee, and Newt Gingrich:
“Our country is at a crossroads. Now, more than ever, we need strong voices to stem the tide of liberalism that is washing away America’s Judeo-Christian heritage. Matt Barber is one of those voices and The Right Hook provides conservatives with an important call to action.” – Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee
“Devout left-wing ideologues have for decades moved progressively closer to their goal of erasing our nation’s Judeo-Christian founding and remaking America in their own secular humanist self-image. But Matt Barber is fighting back. The Right Hook is a must read for anyone who seeks to preserve America’s Godly heritage.” – Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich
“Matt Barber needs to be heard by every American. He is a man who’s faith drives him to fight for the truth and that makes him the kind of leader people should follow.” – Congressman Tom Delay
Given Barber’s history of vehement attacks, I’m really looking forward to reading through his book to see just what sort of rhetoric Huckabee and Gingrich are recommending
