Barber: ENDA And Hate Crimes Laws Will Be Used To Protect Pedophiles

Matt Barber of Liberty Counsel appeared this week on Sandy Rios In The Morning, where he told guest host Wendy Wright that hate crimes laws and the Employment Nondiscrimination Act (ENDA) will be used to protect pedophiles:

When you have laws like ENDA, the Employment Nondiscrimination Act, being pushed, hate crimes legislation, that are as you point out so well Wendy, that are very vague in their definition of what is sexual orientation, we will arrive at the point where you know these people who define their sexual orientation by a sexual attraction to children want to be lumped in among those who cannot be discriminated against based upon their sexual orientation.

Religious Right activists have regularly employed such bizarre arguments against ENDA and hate crimes laws. Naturally, they can’t point to a single case where a state job discrimination law or a state or federal hate crimes statute was used to protect a child predator.

Barber: 'Harvey Milk Was Demonstrably, Categorically An Evil Man'

Liberty Counsel’s Matt Barber is upset that the US Postal Service will issue a stamp honoring Harvey Milk, telling the American Family Association’s OneNewsNow that Milk was a rapist and “demonstrably, categorically an evil man.”

How far we’ve fallen: An official stamp of approval for sexual perversion

The U.S. Postal Service is putting its stamp of approval on homosexual activism in announcing plans to issue a stamp honoring Harvey Milk.

Milk, who was a San Francisco supervisor more than three decades ago and was touted as the first openly homosexual candidate elected to office, was assassinated in 1978 by a political rival. Matt Barber of Liberty Counsel Action reacts to this latest promotion of the man known for his promiscuous lifestyle and his relationships with underage boys.

“Well, like so much of ‘progressive’ – that's liberal – propaganda, this is rooted in a whitewashing of reality. It's rooted in historical revisionism,” states Barber.

Activists sympathetic to the homosexual agenda have elevated Milk to the status of martyr, notes Barber, but explains that's a false notion.

“Harvey Milk was known as a pederast,” he says. “That's a man who in his mid-30s had a sexual appetite for teenage boys as young as 15 years old.” According to Barber, that has been confirmed by victims who stepped forward.

In addition to the announced postage stamp, Milk is commemorated annually by “Harvey Milk Day” in California public schools, and politicians in that state have in the past pushed for the Navy to name a ship after him. Earlier this year, San Francisco supervisor David Campos proposed changing the name of the nearby international airport to Harvey Milk-San Francisco International Airport.

Barber tells OneNewsNow that honoring someone like Milk is unconscionable and "shows us how we have entered an era where we call evil good and good evil."

“Harvey Milk was demonstrably, categorically an evil man based on his rape of teenage boys,” he states bluntly. “And the fact that our U.S. government would be commemorating and recognizing him as some kind of hero really just boggles the mind.”

The stamp will be issued in 2014.

Barber: Anti-Gay Governors Put Obama 'Back In His Place'

On this week’s Faith & Freedom program, Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver and Matt Barber hailed as heroes four governors who resisted a federal directive and blocked marriage benefits for legally married gay and lesbian National Guard members.

“Clearly this president has displayed disdain for just about every amendment of the Constitution,” Barber said. “He believes that he’s a dictator.”

“I just wish there more governors that were courageous enough to put this man back in his place,” he added.

Barber: Every Gay Person Knows 'What They Are Doing Is Immoral, Unnatural, & Self-Destructive'

Peter LaBarbera returned to Liberty Counsel's "Faith and Freedom" radio program today where, once again, he and Matt Barber spent ten minutes denigrating gays as people who know, deep down, that their lives are immoral and shameful.

"God has written his laws on the hearts of every man, woman, and child," Barber said. "Every individual engaged in the homosexual lifestyle, who has adopted a homosexual identity, they know intuitively that what they are doing is immoral, unnatural, and self-destructive. Yet they thirst for that affirmation because they've tied their whole identity up in this sexual perversion."

LaBarbera agreed, saying that media outlets like Fox News need to start covering the stories of "ex-gays" like Charlene Cothran "who was a famous lesbian activist, who basically her mother and friends were praying for her and one day she was at a black gay pride event in Chicago, of all places, and she looked out and she had a tremendous sense of shame. That came from God!"

Right Wing Leftovers - 9/20/13

  • It looks like Joseph Farah's "9/11 National Day of Prayer and Repentance" is going to be an annual thing.
  • Tony Perkins continues to blame the SPLC for last year's shooting at FRC headquarters.
  • Ted Baehr knows how to stop mass shooting like the one this week at the Navy Yard: "We must end the arbitrary judicial bans on religious and moral teaching in our schools that deprive America’s children of the Ten Commandments that God gave Moses and the Hebrew people on Mount Sinai and the teachings that Jesus Christ gave his disciples in the Sermon on the Mount in Chapters Five through Seven of the Gospel of Matthew and in Chapters 13 through 17 of the Gospel of John."
  • Speaking of the Navy Yard shooting, Rob Schenck says it turned out to be a good opportunity for him to spread the Gospel: "What had begun as a horrible tragedy became a wonderful opportunity to show the love of God, to turn attention to our only true source of help in times of desperation, and to point hearts and minds to the only Savior of humankind."
  • Finally, Matt Barber says President Obama is "creating a constitutional crisis here because he is violating the Constitution" by letting gay couples take advantage of federal benefits.

Barber & LaBarbera: 'Every Major Institution Is Being Corrupted By The Homosexual Agenda'

Peter LaBarbera was the guest on Liberty Counsel's "Faith and Freedom" radio program again today where he and Matt Barber praised Trail Life USA, the new scouting organization explicitly created as an anti-gay alternative to the Boy Scouts. 

LaBarbera said that the Boy Scouts have "sold their soul to the devil" and called for the creation of anti-gay alternatives to organizations "on all fronts" because "every major institution is being corrupted by the homosexual agenda."

LaBarbera said there ought to be anti-gay versions of organizations such as the American Medical Association and the American Psychiatric Association and the like because gay activist are taking them over and forcing people to approve of their behavior in order to "soothe their own conscience."

Barber agreed, saying that progressives are just modern-day pagans and comparing gay activists to a "swarm of locusts" who attack "anything noble" in an effort to destroy it and leave nothing but a dried husk:

Barber: The NALT Christians Project Is 'Apostasy'

Inspired by the success of Dan Savage's "It Gets Better" project, a few weeks ago John Shore and Truth Wins Out launched the Not All Like That (NALT) Christians Project, which is designed to "give LGBT-affirming Christians a means of proclaiming to the world—and especially to young gay people—their belief and conviction that there is nothing anti-biblical or at all inherently sinful about being gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender."

Given that mission, it comes as no surprise that Matt Barber and Peter LaBarbera, who are exactly the sort of people that participants in NALT are proclaiming that not all Christians are like, are unhappy about the project, with Barber declaring that he won't stand for being lectured to about Christianity by someone like Savage, who is "one of the most hateful and vile human beings on the planet."

"This is comical," Barber said. "This is laughable.  To have vile, anti-Christian bigots who are pushing a radical, dangerous sexual anarchist agenda presuming to lecture Christians and have people - self-identified Christians, liberal so-called Christians - upload videos about how they support something that God calls an abomination, there's no other word for it, it's apostasy when you have self-described Christians do it.  It is par for the course when you have those who hate God, people like Dan Savage doing it":

Staver: God Will Not Bless America If Abortion Remains Legal

Outraged by a video of pro-choice activists and two Democratic candidates for governor in Iowa praying for continued access to safe and legal abortion facilities, Mat Staver and Matt Barber asserted that they were not praying to Jesus, but actually to Satan and warned that the participants were putting both this nation and their eternal souls at risk.

Staver compared the United States to Nazi Germany, declaring that "if we continue to go down this path, God will not continue to bless this nation.  How can God continue to bless this nation any more than God could have continued to bless Hitler when he was gassing and destroying and experimenting on all the millions of people and the Jews and others during his atrocities?"

For his part, Barber was not only "shocked" by such a prayer, but also has "a sense of fear for these individuals that they would dare take God's name in vain to pray for the blessings of abortion; we need to pray for their immortal souls"

Right Wing Leftovers - 9/16/13

  • After the sudden resignation of  Regent President Carlos Campo, Pat Robertson has resumed the role until a replacement can be found.
  • Richard Land calls on conservative Christian not to grow despondent and give up but rather keep "fighting for a society that is less unjust, less pagan, and where people are welcomed and protected by law from conception until natural death and everywhere in between their entry into, and exit from, this life and where the freedom to practice and live one's faith is recognized and protected in law."
  • Christians who support Glenn Beck are unknowingly participating "in a Mormon hijacking of the USA's covenant with God."
  • Matt Barber really hates transgender rights, saying "people who have traditional values and people who recognize biological reality should not be compelled to entertain an irrefutable biological delusion."
  • Janet Parshall says Christians are now the victims of discrimination: "If you are a Christian who believes what God has said, that marriage is the union of one MAN and one WOMAN – and if you believe sexual expression is allowed ONLY within that model (anything else is called sin by God's standard) then you are deemed to be a bigot or worse, a hater. But more than the label of bigotry and hatred, Christians are being fined, losing their jobs or facing court martial's because of what they believe."
  • Finally, the American Family Association is mobilizing activists to pressure members of the House of Representatives to co-sponsor "an appropriations bill that doesn't contain any discretionary or mandatory funding for ObamaCare."

Barber: The 'Pagan' Obama Administration Is Discriminating Against Christians

Claiming that the Alabama Air National Guard is now denying tours to church youth groups (an assertion for which we were able to find any documented reporting or supporting evidence), Mat Staver and Matt Barber said that the Obama Administration is discriminating against Christians because it holds a "pagan worldview."

As Barber explained, the Obama administration is the "modern-day equivalent" of ancient Rome, demanding that citizens must worship Caesar in the form of progressiveism.

"It's the same thing; it's pagan sexual morality," Barber said. "It's a pagan view of the world that is a secularist view of the world that is inherently hostile toward not just any religion but particularly Christianity"

Barber: Justice Ginsburg Has Brought 'Shame To America' By Officiating A Same-Sex Marriage Ceremony

Earlier this month, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg became the first Supreme Court justice to officiate a same-sex marriage ceremony and the professional anti-gay bigots over at Liberty Counsel are predictably disgusted.

Matt Barber and Daniel Schmid were deeply disturbed by Ginsburg's participation in a gay wedding, with Barber saying that she had brought "shame to America" by doing so while Schmid said that it proved that the nation was "galloping full speed ahead toward" Gomorrah.

Insisting that no level of government had the right to define the institution of marriage as anything other than what God intended, Schmid said it was a shame that a member of the Supreme Court "would lend credence to such a ceremony and such an abomination," as Barber urged viewers to pray because recognition of gay marriage "essentially results in the criminalization of Christianity":

Barber & Akers: Christians Are Now The Victims Of Don't Ask, Don't Tell

Senior Master Sgt. Phillip Monk has become the Religious Right's latest cause célèbre after he was supposedly relieved of duty for opposing gay marriage, which Matt Barber and Shawn Akers see as a sign that "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" is still in effect in the military, only now it is being applied to Christians.

"In just a few short years," Akers said we've reached "a place where it very well seems safest not to mention your Christianity; we may have very well entered a time of Don't Ask, Don't Tell Christianity within the United States military."

Barber agreed, saying that "like a hordes of locusts," progressives are out to destroy "every noble institution that adheres to traditional values and righteousness and upholds Biblical principles ... It's sad what's happening to America now, folks":

Right Wing Round-Up - 9/4/13

'Clownish': Staver and Barber Outraged By 'The Transgender Traitor,' Chelsea Manning

Shortly after Bradley Manning was convicted of leaking classified information and sentenced to prison, it was announced that the former Army Intelligence Analyst would transition, undergo hormone therapy, and live as a woman named Chelsea.

Predictably, this is not sitting well with Mat Staver or Matt Barber, who cannot believe that this "transgender traitor" is being taken seriously.

Barber declared that any movement is only as strong as its weakest link and "the weakest link in that big, long LGBTQAAALMNOP ... alphabet soup of the absurd, the 'T' for transgender is the weakest link because it is so far removed and detached from reality ... that it is clownish."

Staver agreed, saying that the next time an airline tried to charge an overweight passenger for a second seat, that person should just argue that "I'm a skinny man trapped in an obese man's body": 

Barber: The African American Community Is Sick Of Gay Activists Trying To Ride The 'Civil Rights Gravy Train'

Mat Staver and Matt Barber are continuing the Religious Right's crusade against a proposed anti-discrimination ordinance in San Antonio, Texas on their "Faith and Freedom" radio program, where Barber declared that such an ordinance is not even necessary because gays are hardly, if ever, discriminated against.

Saying that gay activists are "probably the most powerful lobby in the world," Barber claimed that anti-gay discrimination is rare because people "bend over backwards to avoid being accused of homophobia or discrimination" before going on to assert that "the African American community at large, the vast majority are sick and tired of this sexual anarchist lobby attaching their little red wagon to the civil rights gravy train":

Barber & Staver: Remaining Silent On Abortion Is Just Like Staying Silent During The Holocaust

Likening legal abortion once again to the Nazi Holocaust, Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver and Matt Barber said on the most recent "Faith and Freedom" radio broadcast that those who remain silent on the issue today are no different than those who remained silent while the Nazis murdered millions of Jews, warning that they will be judged accordingly by history.

"This is our modern day holocaust," said Staver, before going on to assert that those who do not speak out in opposition to abortion are standing on the wrong side of history.

Barber then expanded on that point, saying there is "an exact comparison" between the two and declaring that "posterity will view those who stood in silence or who tacitly accepted this abortion holocaust just as history views those who silently stood by and allowed the Nazis to murder millions of Jews":

Right Wing Leftovers - 8/27/13

  • Remember how anti-choice activists accused abortion rights supporters of bringing jars of feces and urine into the Texas Capitol? Turns out their claims were completely false
  • Matt Barber rests his case that the LGBT rights movement is “utterly insane.” 
From Obamacare to amnesty for illegal immigrants; from gay marriage to the coercively indoctrinated normalization of homosexuality; from the legal imposition of cowardice by forcing people to flee rather than defend their lives and property, to the relentless push to destroy the Second Amendment's prohibition against disarming their courage – Obama and the power-mad forces he represents are thrusting their bayonets into the soft underbelly of America's way of life.

Barber & Staver Outraged That Chris Christie Thinks He Knows Better Than God

Shortly after New Jersey Governor Chris Christie signed legislation banning the use of "ex-gay" therapy on minors, the anti-gay activists at Liberty Counsel announced that they would be filing suit.

On today's "Faith and Freedom" broadcast, Mat Staver and Matt Barber discussed their forthcoming lawsuit and were particularly outraged that, in signing the legislation, Christie said that he doesn't believe that homosexuality is a sin.

Staver vehemently disagreed, stating that homosexuality "is a disordered situation; it is sin; t is wrong."

Barber was likewise outraged, blasting "the hubris behind him saying that he knows better than God, that he knows better than thousands of years of tradition, the Catholic Church, the Christian church, the Bible about homosexuality and the sin inherent in those behaviors":

Barber: 'It May Be A Time For Civil Disobedience'

Matt Barber appeared on the "Today's Issues" broadcast this morning to discuss his most recent column about a bakery in Oregon which has had a complaint filed against it for refusing to provide a wedding cake to a same-sex couple.

In light of this and similar instances around the country, Barber declared that it has become obvious that gay marriage and religious liberty cannot coexist and so "in much the same fashion as did the civil rights activists of old - Martin Luther King and others - Christians are going to have a decision to make; it may be a time for civil disobedience."

"Christians have been persecuted for 2000 years by radical leftists," he said, adding that just as King spent time in jail, anti-gay Christians today might have to suffer the same fate, knowing that they will be rewarded by God for upholding his law and refusing to "pretend that somehow a man can marry a man, a woman can marry a woman."

"You guys can put on two tuxedos or two wedding dresses and play house and get pretend married 'til your heart's content," Barber said, "but marriage is what God says it is.  We can no more change the laws of gravity than can we change the laws of marriage": 

Right Wing Leftovers - 8/19/13

  • Liberty Counsel announces that it will file suit to block New Jersey's new law banning the use of "ex-gay" therapy on minors.
  • A "photoshop expert" called into Bryan Fischer's radio program today to support his theory, so that proves that!
  • Scott Brown for president?
  • Matt Barber will not be bullied! "Look, you have every right to dress up in two wedding gowns or two tuxedos, get pretend 'married' and play house to your hearts’ content. You do not have the right, however, to force others to abandon their sincerely held religious beliefs, thousands of years of history and the immutable reality of human biology to engage your little fantasy. No amount of hand-wringing, gnashing of teeth, suing Christians or filing charges against those of us who live in marriage reality will make us recognize your silly so-called 'marriage equality.'"
  • Russell Moore, the incoming president of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, says conservative Christians have lost the culture war.
  • Finally, here is the trailer for the first movie being released by Rick Santorum's film company.  It looks like a blockbuster:
