Liberty Counsel & Liberty Univ. personality proud of his extreme rhetoric; I applaud him for owning it!

by Jeremy Hooper

You have to say one thing for Liberty Counsel lawyer and Liberty University Associate Dean Matt Barber: unlike so many in his anti-LGBT movement, he is actually proud to stand by his reliably over-the-top rhetoric.

Latest case in point: He went on fringe radio show "Crosstalk" and demeaned gays and President Obama in every way possible, using words like "demonic" and "evil" and "spiritual warfare" and "rebellion against God" to describe his fight and his opposition. But when RightWingWatch posted the clip, Barber didn't run away from it. No, no—he personally retweeted it, as if it's a badge of honor:

Good for Matt! I love that he's proud of his rhetoric. One should be proud of one's own work.

But even better for us. I love that he puts this stuff out there and thinks it's actually helpful to his cause. Every movement has its voices that unwittingly help the other side. In that regard, Matt is one the "pro-family" movement's finest. May he never stop moving polls in our direction.
