I don't exist to Matt Barber; I'm fine with that, actually

by Jeremy Hooper

In response to a Twitter user (@atlantisprom) who commented on gay monogamy, Liberty Counsel staff attorney Matt Barber wrote the following:

Obvious implication: That all gay couples are incapable/undesirous of monogamy. Which I guess makes me a unicorn-horn-dust addict, since I am in a nine year monogamous marriage, with neither I nor my spouse having even a shred of hankering for anything but (or any other butt, as it were).

Now, Matt is right that my dust addiction doesn't afford me the ability to fly -- but Andrew sure do glide on a pretty cool gust of air! That's good enough for us.

Oh, and unlike you, Matt: I will keep my monogamous habits to one marriage, not two.

*REMINDER: The Liberty Counsel is the org. fighting to take away NY's marriage equality law.

For background on Matt Barber: There was the time Matt said that gay male relationships constitute "one man violently cramming his penis into another man’s lower intestine and calling it ‘love’”; the time Matt called President Barack Obama an anti-american enemy; the time he accused Obama and Barney Frank of being anti-religious bigots; the time he suggested there are "sinister motives" in the Obama White House; the time he agreed with TVC's Andrea Lafferty that homosexuality is "among a litany of...sexual deviances" that include things like sex with an amputee's stump and sexual behavior involving feces and urine; the time he likened pro-equality progressives to Fred "God Hates F*gs" Phelps; the time he referred to marriage equality advocates as "purveyors of evil"; the time he compared gay unions to marrying a house plant; the time he said Ellen Degeneres "guides her many adoring housewife fans into rebellion against God's divine and explicit natural order"; the time he called Google "satanic" for supporting marriage equality; the time he accused gay-friendly media outlets of trying "to make the absurd appear reasonable and normal"; the time he referred to the Muslim faith as "Satanic";etc., etc. More than just about anyone in the "pro-family" world (with the possible exception of Bryan Fisher), Matt has made the choice to go as personal, as negative, as hyperbolic, and as wantonly hurtful as humanly inhumanely possible. He does this on the daily.
