'The homosexual movement corrupts our country'

by Jeremy Hooper

This is what passes for conservative commentary at the American Family Association's OneNewsNow site:

"Homosexual behavior is immoral. It used to be punishable under the Uniform Code of Military Justice, and now we're acting like this is some great wrong that has been done,"..."And that's the problem -- the homosexual movement corrupts our country."

—Peter LaBarbera, man who has spent over two decades "corrupting" his mind with every single in, out, and gnat fart that comes out of the LGBT rights movement [SOURCE: ONN]

No, Peter—the LGBT rights movement just refuses to let aggressively heterosexist, myopically cisgender, proudly dogmatic viewpoints co-opt this world so that the spectrum of "normalcy" is only what the most vocal social conservative says it is. It is not corruptive for a movement to look at the natural world and ask that others at the very least tolerate it for what it is. Corruption comes in the form of biased limitation.

Stop corrupting the well, Pete. There's plenty of water for all.
