Wherein Peter LaBarbera proves my point

by Jeremy Hooper

Earlier this week, when presenting a clip of the American Family Association's Monica Cole accusing NBC's "The New Normal" of degrading morality by simply presenting a same-gender–headed family unit, I referred to the "old normal" of far-right heterosexual Christians denigrating people like me and families like mine.

Not sure how that works exactly. I'm actually quite fond of my straight friends, family members, and their respective children.

Oh, and last time I checked, I wasn't the one of us who took a screen cap from a video of the other's marriage ceremony and wrote the word "perversion" on it. That seems like the "extremist" behavior to me.

But what do I know? I'm just a homo, therefore built for public flogging at the hands of heterosexual men who make the truly odd choice to build their careers around hurting and denigrating other kinds of humans.
