Pete decries 'Christian Left'; And evangelicals wonder why so many have 'left Christianity'?!
"I think there are Christians who struggle with the sin of homosexuality -- but proud homosexual Christians? That's an oxymoron to me in the same way as I would say proud adulterous Christians," he adds. "And so, I think we have to be very careful because I see the tactic of the Emergent Church and the Christian left is to start talking more and more about 'gay Christians,' and what they end up doing is demonizing the so-called 'Religious Right' and saying that the Religious Right is all wrong in the way it has talked about homosexuality."
-Peter LaBarbera, to One News Now
"Seriously, dude? You see MORE Christians as the faith community's major negative? And you think that the best way to evangelize is to cast stones at anyone who isn't Jesus-y enough for your own personal liking? And you blame the shunned folks for 'demonizing' the religious right, when you are the one who is working to demonize them out of existence?
Well thank you for coming back for a follow-up interview Mr. LaBarbera, but I think my communications department is going to go in another direction. My assistant, Father Time, will now see you out."
-God, to a queer-obsessed follower
Hey Jeremy, tell God, Petey does have a hobby. That's how he got his nick-name! ;o)

Yeah, I called Pete once and found out that his fall back reason that homosexuality is a sin is that it is adultery - seriously.
This guy thrives on the attention he gets from his bullshit and, frankly, we left Christians wish that he would stop identifying himself as Christian -- cause I have never talked to a less Christ-like person.

I am a proud Christian gay man. The good news is that militant anti-gay activist and unrepentant homophobe LaBarbera is not God, nor does he speak for God, nor does he decide who has a relationship with God nor does he determine who God loves.
Homophobia is a sin like lying, stealing and murder. God hates sin. The Bible makes it clear in more than one place that revilers (such as Mr. LaBarbera) are going to hell. Instead of attacking gay people for their faith, he needs to seek deliverance from his sin of homophobia.

Adultery? Oh, because it's sex outside of marriage? But if gay couples could get married, they wouldn't be adulterers. So he's opposed to letting gay couples get married because he wouldn't be able to use the fact that they can't against them.

I can assure Mr. Labarbera that there are indeed happy, content, and saved gay christians. I am one but i seriously doubt that is anything but a christian in name only. Real Christians, gay or straight do not lie, do not deny anyone of their rights, does no harm to another person but only shows love and compassion to that person.
These "christians" do none of that.
