A parental choice we simply would not make

However, being Peter LaBarbera, he is also turning his parental choice into a public matter, posting today on his website a gay-demonizing letter that he wrote to officials at Napervile's Waubonsie High School.

Hmm...the same Peter LaBarbera who tried to turn it into a national incident when a commenter at Pam Spaulding's site "violated his privacy" and "threatened" him, has now used his child as a pawn in his anti-gay endeavors? Isn't that a tad hypocritical? After all, consider this quote that he issued at the time of the aforementioned incident:

I'm a big boy. It’s not so much that I’m worried about myself,” ...“but the effect this could have on my wife and children … that has me extremely upset.

But yet, Peter, you have no problem posting where your child goes to school and using his lack of attendance at said school as part of your work against gays?! Pete, you may think my raging case of 'mo makes this writer an unfit parent, but I can guaran-damn-tee you that child will never be used as a tool in my socio-politic-religious campaigns the way you are so publicly & controversially using yours!!!

To read LaBarbera's letter, click the link below. In the meantime, we would like to reminf Mr. LaBarbera's and all of our opposition's children: You are your own humans and you are free top think for yourselves! Never let yourself be defined by your parents' "pro-family" game playing!
