'Gays silencing me!' exclaims man who never stops talking about us

by Jeremy Hooper

Peter 0Here's Peter LaBarbera freely speaking to the American Family Association's One News Now:

"If the homosexual activists are going to tout free speech, then they need to respect free speech -- our free speech," he contends. "And the problem is so often they not only don't respect our free speech, they're trying to squelch it everywhere they can."
Respecting free speech [ONN]

Squelch? Well please, by all means, everyone—go take a sec and check out Peter's GLAAD Commentator Accountability Project profile and find just some of the things the professional opponent of LGBT rights has said on his quest to convince the world that "only a decaying society pretends that homosexual relationships are morally equivalent to normal, male-female couples":

Peter LaBarbera [GLAAD CAP]

We want people to see it. We insist they do!! Because we fully respect Peter's free speech. What we don't respect? The lack of respect contained within said speech. And we're confident a growing majority of the world agrees with us, not Peter, which is why we are taking every opportunity to get his speech out to larger audiences. If Peter LaBarbera is confident in his positions, he should be thanking us.

Claiming sunlight equals squelching? That's as absurd as saying simple acknowledgement of our natural world equals some sort of militant agenda. Which, incidentally, Peter does as well.
