On Tuesday Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton marked International Day Against Homophobia And Transphobia, demanding “an end to discrimination and mistreatment of LGBT persons wherever it occurs.” She called LGBT rights “universal human rights,” and criticized countries that try to criminalize homosexuality and marginalize gay-rights and its advocates.
Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality was naturally outraged, and told the American Family Association’s OneNewsNow to resist Clinton’s stance against bigotry:
“We are becoming a country [that] not only supports perversion; we cheerlead for perversion,” he contends. “A day against homophobia and transphobia — what they’re saying is Judeo-Christian morality is the equivalent of bigotry and irrational fear, and that is a false message.”
And he points out that Clinton made a statement at the event that decried the cycle of hate.
“What they’re saying essentially is if you are a Christian…a Muslim or a Jew, and you oppose sexual perversion or gender confusion, you are a hater; you are a bigot,” LaBarbera assesses, adding that “this is the liberal message.”
So he is urging “Americans…to stand up and say ‘no,'” because that message is “a lie.”
