Attendee at Peter LaBarbera's fundraiser: 'I'm a very proud bigot and I'm here!'

by Jeremy Hooper

The Windy City Times brings this piece of color from outside Peter LaBarbera's weekend banquet:

In one heated moment, a man walking into the building approached the [pro-LGBT demonstrators].

"Bigots go home!" the crowd yelled.

"I'm a very proud bigot and I'm here!" yelled back the man, who identified himself to Windy City Times as Jim Finnegan from Barrington, Ill.
