Peter LaBarbera's org., long a liability to its movement, claims 'earlier trauma and/or emotional deprivation' creates homosexuality

by Jeremy Hooper

You have to say one thing for Pete LaBarbera and his crew: they really don't care how much their honest airing of their true views hurts their broader movement. Because it does, and yet they still do.

Latest bit of unfiltered nastiness comes via Pete and one of his board members:

201405181937Same-sex “marriage” is an absurdity (Pope Francis calls it anthropological regression), which even “gays” joked about in the ’70′s. Proposition 8 was the people’s initiative opposing institutionalizing a man’s using another man as a woman, and a woman’s using another woman as a man. This has neither the support of nature, morality, normality, even health.
What the media don’t know and the “gay” community won’t admit (the American Psychiatric Association’s non-scientific pronouncement notwithstanding), is that “gay” activists are forcing on this country an adaptation to earlier trauma and/or emotional deprivation. Instead of focusing on the source of such, thereby gaining understanding leading to freedom, they are using politics and media to make it the norm. From this: Spare us, O, Lord.

In a world of carefully couched talking points and anti-LGBT activists who won't take responsibility for anything (they're the "victims," didn't you here?), it's kind of refreshing to have at least a few vocal opponents who are just like, "Oh yeah, we think gay people are terrrrrrrrrible." It takes a village to show the American public how wrong-headed and downright nasty discrimination really is.
