One of the reasons that we started regularly covering extremist right-wing activist Theodore Shoebat and his open calls for gays to be put to death was because he was featured in Janet Porter’s anti-gay documentary “Light Wins” along with Republican presidential candidates, members of Congress, and leading anti-gay activists.
Once Shoebat’s views began to be exposed, his allies in the “pro-family” movement began to distance themselves from him, and Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality, who is an anti-gay extremist in his own right and who also appeared in Porter’s documentary, disavowed Shoebat and his call to execute gays.
“You betrayed Christ. You betrayed Christianity when you turned your back on me,” Shoebat fumed, blasting LaBarbera for having acquiesced to the “sodomites” instead of “standing by me, a fellow Christian.”
“You betrayed true Christianity,” Shoebat said. “When God demands the death penalty for the sodomite, you go against God himself … You are an enemy of Christ and all of you cowards, you superficial empty skeletons, you walking tombs, you soulless, superficial reprobates who call yourself Christians, you are false prophets. You are pigs! You are worse than pigs, you are lower than Sodom and Gomorrah because you deceive people. You portray yourself as promoters of family values and Christianity, but you’re nothing but demonoids.”
