Anti-LGBT activist Mike Heath of MaineResistance recently interviewed Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality regarding what he considered to be the failure of the Religious Right movement to go on offense against the LGBT rights movement.
LaBarbera said that while groups like the Family Research Council and the American Family Association are committed to resisting LGBT rights measures when they are proposed, they are far less willing to go on the offensive in order to actually reverse the gains that the LGBT community has made in recent years.
This position makes no sense, LaBarbera said, because anti-gay activists have God and truth on their side.
“That’s the shame of our movement,” he said. “The homosexual activists behave as if they have the truth. We act as if we’re ashamed of the truth when, in reality, we have the truth. Look at homosexuality; God says it’s an abomination. Well, what a shocker that the behavior that God says is an abomination is vastly disproportionately represented among sexually transmitted diseases. Gee, Mike, what a shocker!”
Saying that syphilis cases are surging because of gay men, LaBarbera declared that “what we’re finding in the science is that homosexuality is as bad as God said it was and you can’t change that.”
