That's Mr. Purveyor of Evil to you, Matthew

by Jeremy Hooper

Matt-barberThe line between Westboro Baptist Church and J. Matt Barber is getting ever more fine:

Matt Barber, director of cultural affairs for Liberty Counsel, poses this question: "How long can a nation founded on the laws of nature and nature's God expect to find favor in his eyes when we continue to mock God?"

Vermont's decision, he believes, sends waves throughout the country -- including the nation's capitol. "I believe that the purveyors of evil around the country feel emboldened right now with the current political climate in Washington, DC," Barber states, what with both the Oval Office and Congress inhabited by "people who are bent on thumbing their nose at God."

Oh, Matt, you're confused, pal. We are not thumbing out noses at God. No, no. It only looks that way because every time you're near us, we're holding our noses so as to not faint from the fumes of your noxious rhetoric! Your gay-demonizing, apocalyptic views be toxic, big guy!

**UPDATE: And this is actually Matt's second One News Now contribution of the day. In another, he says of our unions:

"So it's no more discriminatory to disallow two men from marrying each other than it is to prohibit a man from marrying his house plant"

So we guess in that case, we'd be green thumbing our noses at God, huh?

**BONUS: Listen to Matt Barber and his cohort, Mat "lesbian parents will raise violent kids" Staver, discuss the broad and offensive ideas that African-Americans are against us, pro-gay people shouldn't hold any office, marriage equality will soon lead God to "lift his hand of divine providence," and oh so much more:

(Staver's the first voice, Barber's the second)

Your thoughts

A Vermonter says: Someone who deigns to speak for God MOCKS God.

By the way, God has a second home in Vermont!

GAY, did you see the other Iowa/Vermont related article on their site?

WTF is with the picture they're using on the top? Their insulting and unprofessional nature seems to be getting more and more transparent.

I saw that picture as well usually I have a sense humor about things like that - but come on that is low even by their standards.

You know, its a funny thing what Matt and the religious right says about losing these four states who legalized gay marriage. Matt says its just "temporary." I don't think he realizes that these constitutional amendments to ban gay marriage are temporary as well. The people who voted for these bans can very well turn around and vote against them. As the old generation dies out and new generation take the lead, they will undo the damage of these amendments and the religious right will really be speechless. Time is on equality's side, I just wish they would realize that.

I "love" it when white folks who have never given a damn about the African-American community (i.e. Barber and Staver) suddenly try to "stick up" for us.

I hope you all recognize sarcasm. lol

I want Matt to marry his house plant, provided that:
a) It's a cactus
b) he consummates the marriage
3. The plant makes all his medical decisions if he falls ill.
