Anti-LGBTQ activist Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality appeared on VCY America’s “Crosstalk” program yesterday, where he declared that Pete Buttigieg’s campaign for president is “a very sobering moment for this nation,” warning that if America is willing to elect a gay man to the White House, then conservative Christians will be treated as pariahs in this nation.
“The question is: Is America so far gone morally and spiritually that we would elect a person who brazenly and openly defies God?” LaBarbera asked. “Declares himself not just homosexual, but preaches on scripture as a member of the religious left, openly so-called gay, talking about his husband … His open homosexuality is very important because were Pete Buttigieg to rise to vice president or president, it becomes a very bad role model and lesson for America’s children. They will be indoctrinated even further into thinking that it’s acceptable, normal, and OK that instead of having a First Lady or a Second Lady, we would have a, I suppose, a First Husband for a man. Imagine what we’re teaching our children. Is America that far gone?”
“This is a whole new level,” he added. “Anybody who disagreed with that would be labeled a bigot and a homophobe and all the names they come out with.”
“We’ll be hated,” LaBarbera warned, as he complained that people are blindly accepting the idea that Buttigieg is legitimately married. “They are allowing the language to be corrupted, to apply sexual deviance to the same language as a normal marriage. I think if Christians speak out against that and say, ‘No,’ and they refuse to say that somebody like Pete Buttigieg is truly married before God, they will be hated.”
