Audio: Ron Baity bears false witness against me (again)

by Jeremy Hooper

Like his defender Tony Perkins, recent FRC award recipient Ron Baity is responding to the considerable scrutiny that has come down against his extreme rhetoric by accusing me of being a liar. But in doing so, the North Carolina "marriage defender" 100% proves himself to be the one spinning his earlier words, which he commits to audio for all to hear.

First the "explanation." This is Baity from a church service held earlier this month, telling his congregants what he supposedly said versus what I supposedly claimed he said:

First things first: Neither I nor the SBC claimed Baity wanted to kill gays. So nix that self-victimizing right now, Mr. Baity. No one is making that charge.

But as for the clip to which you seem to be referring, Mr. Baity? Well here, rather than tell your congregants what you said, let's listen to what you *ACTUALLY* said, delivered via your own two lips and vocal box:

You said we have "become so dumb" that we no longer make homosexuality a criminal penalty. You implied that we war smarter then than we are now. In fact, you referred to that earlier time as "truth." If that's not advocating for the idea that America was better off when it prosecuted this "perverse lifestyle," then I don't what is

But the thing is? I didn't really even tell people what to think. When I initially posted this clip, I coupled it with very little editorializing. In fact, my setup was an open-ended question asking if Baity and his "traditional marriage" supporters do, in fact, want gay people re-criminalized. Because I didn't need to post much more than that—I was confident that this clip, like most all Ron Baity clips, speaks for itself!

You can call me whatever the hell you want, Mr. Baity. Bring it. I live for this sort of thing (and have a book to promote, so please—give me controversy!). But you will not—WILL. NOT.—accuse me of false facts or continue to use any of the other face-saving pieces of defamation you and Tony Perkins keep trying to lay at my feet. That's a promise!
