This man is a dean. At a law school. Parents send kids to him to learn. About law.

by Jeremy Hooper

Matt-BarberThe nothing-if-not-incendiary Matt "one man violently cramming his penis into another man’s lower intestine and calling it ‘love’” Barber has joined Focus on the Family and the American Family Association (among other, more fringe figures) in declaring that an out lesbian version of Elena Kagan would be a no-go. J. Matthew says:

"...'heterosexual' is the state of sexual normalcy. It's our God-given design...Homosexual conduct is but one of many sexually deviant behaviors. Even Darwin's theory of evolution, which imagines "survival of the fittest," would seem to bolster this self-evident truth. You can choose political correctness. I choose moral and biological correctness."
Kagan a lesbian? Why it matters [WND]

And perhaps more egregiously: Matt even goes so far as to liken Kagan, someone who obviously hasn't been accused of any kind of hypocritically scandalous behavior, to four men whose own public, homo-centric discussions were defined not by their sexual identity but rather by their eye-opening actions and the handling thereof:

"Whereas every liberal hack on the planet tripped over one another to demand Mark Foley, Larry Craig, Ted Haggard and, most recently, George Rekers divulge the most intimate details of their own bizarre (allegedly) sexual appetites, with Kagan, they've suddenly lost interest."

Ya know, because apparently we "liberal hacks" all missed the part where Kagan, an evangelical preacher with a wide stance, hired an underage congressional page to lift her luggage and give her massages in an airport restroom. Not sure how we missed that part, but guess we somehow did.

Oh, but even if this grown adult with a peculiar hankering for brutally slurring LGBT people is being intellectually dishonest (No, not matt! Not *our* Matt!), all of Matt's false constructions are totally okay in his eyes. That's because to him, progressives are all hacks and scientists are all liars. To Matt, homosexuality is not a sexual orientation found throughout the animal kingdom. No, no -- it's much more like Texas Hold'em and/or bong rips:

"...being "gay" is what someone does. It involves feelings and changeable behaviors. Homosexual conduct is more akin to the aforementioned gambling or pot smoking behaviors than it is to skin color (and for those in the lifestyle, especially men, sodomy most definitely involves rolling the dice)."

Although the esteemed Dean J. Matthew Barber does stop short of saying we should all be rounded up and thrown in a prison on a far-away island. So that's something. When talking about a man as combustible as Matt, one must savor the little victories.

Or better yet: When talking about a movement that emboldens this thoroughly out-of-line figure's rhetoric, one must savor the fact that it's their own long-term credibility that they are willingly sacrificing.


**Oh and don't forget: This is the same man whose work earns accolades from Focus on the Family's top judicial analyst.

**Oh and don't forget:
Matt's columns are regularly printed in Townhall, a prominent outlet for mainstream conservatives. He's right alongside Coulter, Maggie Gallagher, Malkin, and all the rest.
