But Pete -- An 'adultery debate' just seems so unfaithful, while a 'drug' one seems so dopey

by Jeremy Hooper
"A debate framed from a pro-homosexual perspective -- when homosexual behavior, for centuries, [for] thousands of years, was regarded as deeply sinful by Christians and people who believe in God," .... "It's just astonishing. I'm waiting for the adultery presidential debate or maybe the pro-drug use presidential debate.

"Who ever heard of framing a presidential debate around a sin?"

The above is a quote from Americans For Truth's Peter LaBabera in reaction to the forthcoming HRC/Logo presidential event. Below is our response:

"A sizable, politically involved, intelligent block of voters -- who, for centuries, [for] thousands of years were wrongly shunned or worse by Christians who thought they were supposed to speak for God,"..."It's just awe-inspiring that we've reached a day when the end of such cruel judgment seems in sight! We're waiting for the candidate who will go the next step and look those who compare gays to drug abusers or adulterers in the eye and say, 'How dare you? You -- you are what is truly detrimental to this freedom-loving, church-separated, democratic, diverse country!!"

Who ever heard of framing such pervasive, mean-spirited, society-weaking discrimination around one-sided, personal, debatable, cherry picked, man-interpreted ideas of what constitutes 'sin'?

Your thoughts

Hypocrisy cubed. Why have a debate on adultery, they already approve of it? (McCain, Guiliani, etc.):

Mark 10:11-12:
He answered, "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her. And if she divorces her husband and marries another man, she commits adultery."

PS, that ATF link didn't work when I tried it.

I'm surprised nobody has done a huge expose' on Peter LaBarbera - show some REAL "truth" about how this guy is obsessed about everything gay, owns gay porn, trolls bathhouses, goes to watch people piss all over each other, etc.

LaBarbera is already at the sissy status of "homosexual aficianado".

i thought that every one of the republican debates as been the "adultery presidential debate?"

I blogged on this as well, but from a slightly different perespective, I suppose. First, none of the three candidates mentioned are in support of gay marriage, bringing into question their positions on other gay rights issues...especially those attached to marriage. So, other than the fact that the debate is to be moderated by the HRC and aired on LOGO, I don't understand the whole "pro-homosexual" label that Pete put on it. Second, if the debate were to be moderated by the Southern Baptist Convention and aired on CBN, would Pete rush to stick a "pro-Christian" label on it? Just my thoughts, but it's clear that the fundie double standard is in full force on this one.
