LaBarbera: US Should Adopt Russia-Style 'Gay Propaganda' Law To Stop Disney From 'Promoting Lesbianism To Kids'

Americans For Truth About Homosexuality director Peter LaBarbera said yesterdat that the U.S. should copy Russia’s “homosexual propaganda” law in order to censor shows like “Good Luck Charlie,” the Disney show that recently came under attack from Religious Right activists for featuring a same-sex couple.

“Look at the Disney show, they are promoting lesbianism to kids who don’t even know what sex is yet,” LaBarbera said in an interview with the American Family Association’s Sandy Rios. “How are kids going to process that information of two moms?”

LaBarbera hailed Russia’s law for stopping people from “promoting homosexualism” and called it “acceptable and a good idea.” Rios agreed that the law was “common sense.”

LaBarbera even had harsh words for same-sex couples who send their children to school, because that may lead to discussions that would make anti-gay bigots like himself who seek to stigmatize the family feel uncomfortable.

They’re always asking, ‘How does it harm you? How does gay parenting affect you?’ Here’s how we see it affecting us: Young children are being taught that homosexuality, homosexual relationships is just normal. It’s actually very selfish because the adult choices are basically forced on everybody. This situation we saw in Disney is writ large.

If there’s a lesbian parenting, lesbians have a child at a school, the whole school—there’s pressure on the school then to teach, to not have any stigma be on that whole idea of homosexuality. Of course we don’t hate anybody, we don’t want any child harmed but these situations are forced upon the general public.



You know, the children are being forced by this so-called domesticated homosexuality, they pay the price. People say, ‘Why can’t you just teach them? Why do you have to have any stigma at all?’ Well, basically they are asking us to give up our beliefs.

He also told Rios that he will be travelling to Washington along with notorious anti-gay pastor Scott Lively to speak out in favor of Russia’s anti-gay crackdown in front of the Russian Embassy.

Rios: Obama Has 'Otherworldly,' 'Supernatural Power'

On her radio show yesterday, American Family Association governmental affairs director Sandy Rios reacted to President Obama’s State of the Union speech by warning that the president has a sinister “supernatural power” that is captivating the American people.

Responding to a caller who warned that “there’s a black cloud over our national capital” that is bringing down America, Rios said that there is a “spiritual” element to the political battle: “I do think what we’re facing here is otherworldly, there is a supernatural power to this president that I can’t—that I think most of us have picked up, those of us who believe in God and believe that there are other forces at work here, but we don’t know what God’s mind is on this.”

Previously, Rios claimed that Obama is no different than Adolf Hitler and Mao Zedong.

Right Wing Leftovers - 1/24/14

  • South Carolina Senate candidate Lee Bright is raffling off a semi-automatic military-style rifle in celebration of the fact that "in the wake of the horrific tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, gun-grabbers were sure they had the votes to RAM gun control into law," but they failed.
  • Liberty Counsel vows to help defend Florida's anti-gay marriage amendment, which makes sense considering that the organization helped write it.
  • Sandy Rios does not support efforts by the military to accommodate religious practices of non-Christians: "There's been a real effort to go out of the way to accommodate Muslims in government and in military life, and then to hurt Christians in military life. So until we see more specification on this – knowing their habits and their practice in the past few years – I'm not at peace with this yet."
  • Mike Huckabee is predictably attacking the media for mocking the comments he made yesterday.
  • Finally, "Coach" Dave Daubenmire wants to ban Hollywood.

Paranoia-Rama: Girls Ruin The World, MLK's Real Legacy, And The Origin Of Autism

RWW's Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.

This week, we learn that women are to blame for sexual assaults and sex trafficking, take a new look at the Civil Rights Movement, and announce some new medical discoveries.

5. TSA Electric Shock Bracelets, Brain Microchips & High-Speed Rail Leading to Government Control

Buzzfeed this week dug up the website for Founder’s Truth, a group formerly led by Greg Brannon, who is now a Republican candidate for Senate from North Carolina.

It turns out that Brannon’s group’s website was chock full of conspiracy theories, most revolving around various sorts of technology leading to government control. Blog posts on the site alleged that the Aurora movie theater massacre was an inside job orchestrated by “psyop pros” in order to tighten the government’s grasp on the population; that the TSA might force people to wear bracelets that would “deliver an electric shock if they got out of line”; that corporations are scheming to plant microchips in our brains; that light rail systems in American cities are part of a nefarious United Nations plot; that the fluoridation of water is “unethical and criminal” and something about a “secret police murder and cover-up.”

We are looking forward to Senate hearings on these issues once Brannon is elected.

4. Martin Luther King, Jr, Didn’t Actually Favor Civil Rights

In a Martin Luther King, Jr Day interview with Steve Deace, the Institute on the Constitution’s Michael Peroutka presented the novel theory that the renowned civil rights leader never actually supported civil rights . Instead, Peroutka argued, King’s modern-day followers have “perverted” his legacy to suggest that King was fighting for rights from the government. He also asserted that King – who famously supported robust federal aid to low-income people – would definitely not have supported federal aid to low-income people.

Peroutka’s shaky understanding of the Civil Rights Movement shouldn’t exactly come as a surprise – after all, he is a proud member of the neo-confederate group League of the South.

Peroutka’s MLK Day revisionism is part of a larger trend among the Right to pretend that the Civil Rights Movement’s goals have been achieved and that it is now white people who are facing discrimination. This week, the American Family Association’s Sandy Rios, claimed that, “for the most part, the American Anglo-Saxon crew really has moved past racism, they did it quite a long time ago…But it seems to be raging, racism seems to be raging in the black community.” For his part, columnist Erik Rush claimed that President Obama is actually “enslaving and oppressing” white people.

3. President Obama and Sandra Fluke To Blame For Sexual Assaults on Campus

Family Research Council president Tony Perkins smelled a rat in President Obama’s push to combat sexual assaults on college campuses. In an email to FRC’s members yesterday, Perkins contended that it was President Obama himself who had led to an epidemic of sexual assaults on campuses…by requiring insurance companies to cover contraception, admitting to smoking pot as a kid, and once mentioning a happy hour.

In a radio commentary later in the day, Perkins extended the blame to Sandra Fluke, the former Georgetown law student who faced vicious attacks from the Right for her advocacy in favor of contraception coverage.

2. Gay People Cause Autism

Susanne Atanus, a Republican candidate for U.S. House in Illinois, told the Chicago Daily Herald that autism and dementia, along with extreme weather like tornadoes, are God’s punishments for marriage equality and abortion .

“God is angry,” she said. “We are provoking him with abortions and same-sex marriage and civil unions. Same-sex activity is going to increase AIDS. If it’s in our military it will weaken our military. We need to respect God.”

Atanus previously claimed that the stock market crash of 1929 didn’t actually happen.

1. Beyoncé Leading Women Into Sex Trafficking

Christian Post columnist Larry Tomczak took issue this week with First Lady Michelle Obama’s description of Beyoncé as “a true role model for children.”

The pop star, Tomczak contends, has squandered her “gifts from almighty God in song and dance” and “chose to develop her persona as a sexy, seductive singer.” Tomczak warns that Beyonce’s example could “lead naive young girls on a dangerous path that could lead some even into sex trafficking”…and from there, to “abuse, abortions and abasement-sometimes death.”

Rios: African Americans Are The Only Racists, Thanks To Obama

American Family Radio’s Sandy Rios was upset last week about a message from a listener, Andre, who accused her of racism against black people.

Rios responded on her program by denying that white people in America are racist, and insisting that if they are, it’s the fault of black people. “I think the racist garbage coming from a lot of blacks right now who are just filled with bitterness and rage is just amazing to me,” Rios said. “It is racism, I am seeing it constantly here in DC, and it’s causing white citizens to become more racist than they ever were.” 

“I think for the most part, the American Anglo-Saxon crew really has moved past racism, they did it quite a long time ago,” she added, citing President Obama’s election as proof of white people’s lack of racism. “But it seems to be raging, racism seems to be raging in the black community.”

“I think what’s causing it is people like Barack Obama and Eric Holder who can’t say enough and stir the pot enough to create anger and hatred and bitterness,” she continued, before comparing this alleged anti-white racism to feminism. “They do the same thing with women, it’s the same thing in feminism, that’s why I’ve never been a feminist, I hate feminism.”

Rios: Obama Is Just Like Hitler & Mao

The American Family Association’s Sandy Rios this week wondered aloud about a question on the minds of many Americans: Is President Obama more like Adolf Hitler or Mao Zedong?

Rios agreed with a caller, Michael, who said that “exactly the same thing” is happening in America as in Germany during the Nazi Party’s rise to power, adding that Obama also reminds her of Mao.

Caller: I have a couple of observations, one real quick one: you see what the Obama administration is doing with the Constitution, go back to the early ’30s and watch the Nazis rise. Exactly the same thing happened then.

Rios: Yeah, yeah Michael I think that when you look at how — I’ve made comparisons to Mao Zedong too — not complete always but the left has a method and they always repeat their method and so the method is being repeated here. I totally agree with you and we’re watching it.

Rios has previously compared Obama to Mao, who much like Obama came to power after a bloody civil war that lasted several years.

Rios: 'Natural Born Americans' Becoming 'The Minority' In Washington D.C.

As Director of Governmental Affairs for the Tupelo, Mississippi-based American Family Association, Sandy Rios lives in the Washington D.C. area. But she told AFA head Tim Wildmon today that she is one of the few US citizens in the District. In an interview today with Wildmon on Today’s Issues, Rios said that immigrants are the majority in Washington, or at least in the city’s McDonald’s restaurants.

“In Washington D.C., sometimes when we are in public places it’s hard to find any natural-born Americans, you are the minority,” she told Wildmon. “When I go through McDonald’s or whenever I interact with illegal immigrants -- and like I said, they are legion -- my responsibility is to be kind and gracious.” Rios went on to explain that biblical commands to treat immigrants with compassion should not impact public policy.

In fact, foreign born residents account for 13.5% of the city’s population (compared to 13.0% nationally). Undocumented immigrants make up just 4.5% of the District’s residents.

Wildmon warned that offering undocumented immigrants a pathway to citizenship would lead to “the end of the Republican Party as we know it,” while Rios called such a move “Republican suicide” and urged GOP leaders to get out of Washington more and live in places like Mississippi.

“I think of that phrase in the Old Testament about a ‘strong delusion,’ she said. “I would say that the Republican leadership is under a strong delusion. I don’t understand it, I can’t explain it except that they just don’t get out enough, they need to go live in Mississippi, they need to go live in Nebraska, wherever, because the sanity seems to leave them.”

LaBarbera: 'Glee' Has Turned America Against God

Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality lamented late last month that “America is becoming a profane nation that is against God” thanks to gay marriage and TV shows like Glee.

Speaking with Sandy Rios of the American Family Association on December 20, LaBarbera hailed Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson’s anti-gay views while arguing that openly gay people have warped the minds of young people.

In his generation, I think he’s 67, it was just taken for granted that homosexuality was wrong, an abomination, something terrible, awful. But look at where we are now, you have programs like Glee where you have young men with romantic kisses on TV, I just learned that the Rose Bowl parade is going to have a homosexual so-called marriage float, all of those little kids are going to be seeing two men or two women or whatever it is getting married so-called and it’s going to infect their minds and corrupt those young minds.

LaBarbera, who recently traveled to Jamaica to defend the country’s ban on gay sex, denounced U.S.-led efforts to promote LGBT rights abroad.

He warned that the “homosexual agenda” will ultimately bring America down, because homosexuality “is in the vanguard of bringing societies down, I think it’s the marker for a declining society and if that’s the case then America is in big trouble because we have become a radical pro-gay culture. I was in Jamaica just a couple of weeks ago, we’re spreading immorality around the world, we’re exporting homosexuality now to these little countries like Jamaica using our foreign aid dollars.”

Rios: Mandela Was A Criminal & 'Criminals Are Placed In Solitary Confinement'

On Friday, American Family Association radio host Sandy Rios lashed out at Nelson Mandela, who was imprisoned for 27 years, and said that he deserved to be in jail because he was a violent criminal:

Nelson Mandela was placed in prison because of the violence that he did in the country of South Africa. Now you can argue, I guess, you can say it was worth it because we overthrew apartheid, I don’t know, is that really the way a victory should be won? Is this really a righteous cause? Is he really a saint for doing this? They talk about him being in solitary confinement, well, criminals are placed in solitary confinement, if you murder other people you lose your rights.

Rios later wondered if race relations in South Africa have improved since the end of the apartheid system.

“I don’t think the picture of South Africa as it stands now is what the narrative is, certainly to be a white person in South Africa is not a very fun thing right now,” Rios said. “I think that they have now obtained suppressing the white population with the black population holding the superior vantage point.”

Sandy Rios On The War On Christmas: 'This Is Exactly What Hitler Did In Nazi Germany'

American Family Association head Tim Wildmon joined AFA radio host Sandy Rios today to discuss a USA Today article about how “Not all Christians believe there is a ‘War on Christmas.’” Wildmon spent most of the interview complaining that any Christian would dare criticize the AFA, which is a leading voice in movement to expose the “War on Christmas.” He told Rios that he resented Christian leaders who mock the idea of the War on Christmas or note that the AFA’s campaign actually emphasizes the material aspect of the holiday by focusing on how many stores tell customers “Merry Christmas” instead of “Happy Holidays.”

Wildmon accused one pastor, who told USA Today that Christians needed to come to grips with the religious diversity in the US, of wanting Christians to partake in “a dangerous retreat into isolating ourselves from the larger culture.”

“This is exactly what Hitler did in Nazi Germany,” Rios said. She went on to compare the supposed War on Christmas to religious oppression in the Soviet Union and North Korea.

“I don’t think this pastor understands and I don’t think people understand what is going on in the world,” she said. “They don’t have a large enough world. Their world is too small and so they don’t understand the dangers.”

Rios: CAIR Is 'Joined At The Hip With Al Qaeda And The Terrorists'

Last week, Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) joined the McCarthyite group Citizens For National Security (CFNS) at a forum highlighting the supposed security threat posed by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and its “seditious and subversive” activities. The day after the briefing, anti-Muslim activist Deborah Weiss spoke to Sandy Rios of the American Family Association to promote a CFNS’s new report on CAIR.

Rios kicked off the interview by accusing CAIR — which she mistakenly called the Council for American Immigration Relations — of working with Al Qaeda and advocating terrorism. Later, Weiss warned that CAIR will “Islamize the whole country.”

Rios: There aren’t just hidden cells in the United States, there are open, out, proponents of terrorism who couch themselves as some sort of a civil rights group. One of the leading groups in this country that’s joined at the hip with Al Qaeda and the terrorists is the Council for American Immigration Relations.



Weiss: Their main goals are to shut people up for a myriad of reasons. One of which is it’s against their religion to ‘defame’ Islam but the second reason is if you shut people up then they don’t really know what’s going on in the world on terror and there other goal is to Islamize the workplace and indeed to Islamize the whole country.

Rios: So it is all about propaganda for the terrorist cause and for turning America into a Muslim state. Of course they don’t state that but that is exactly what they are doing.

Ironically, Weiss spent the interview attacking CAIR for criticizing TV shows and boycotting businesses…something the AFA does on a regular basis.

WorldNetDaily also ran a flattering report on the CFNS press conference this weekend. According to the report, Wolf seemed to suggest that CAIR may have ties to the terrorist organization Al-Shabaab, while CFNS co-founder Peter Leitner warned of CAIR “psy-ops.”

CAIR is the operational part of the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States. As such, and as part of Hamas, they’re the domestic side of an international terrorist group. What they’re doing is psychological operations,” Leitner said. “Their mission to do misinformation and psy-ops is for the purpose of supporting jihadist movements in the United States and Canada,” Leitner said. … Leitner said CAIR’s “masquerade is to divert attention from the Islamic threat in the U. S. by oversensitizing law enforcement and intelligence officials.”

“To make that happen, they’ve infiltrated their agents into the various national security agencies,” Leitner said.



“Their greatest work is to create a grand illusion of a peaceful religion to distract attention from what their real plan is,” Leitner said.

He also says the lawfare tactics ares [sic] fundraising mechanism.



Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., a frequent advocate for persecuted Christians, affirmed that his committee research shows that CAIR and Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated terrorist organizations pose a real security threat.

“The threat is real and I serve on the committee that has jurisdiction of the FBI. We’ve put language in a bill that will completely prevent the FBI from involving themselves with CAIR,” Wolf said.

“An example of the depth of the threat comes from the Somali al-Qaida-affiliate al-Shabaab. Imams recruit for al-Shabaab from Somali groups in Minneapolis. Not only that, they’re telling Somalis not to cooperate with federal authorities who are investigating the Somali mosques,” Wolf said.

The FBI has become more cautious in its dealings with CAIR, he said, as has his committee. “I know we’ve been very careful interacting with any group that is involved with CAIR,” Wolf said. “I refused to go to any group that has connections to CAIR.”

Paranoia-Rama: This Week In Right-Wing Lunacy - 11/22/13

RWW's Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.

Next time you turn on “The Walking Dead,” be warned that it may actually be part of a government plot to condition Americans to accept mass killings. That is, if Obama doesn’t get away with his plan to nuke America first!

Check out what we learned from some of the “brightest” minds of the far-right this week:

5. Next Stop: Military Coup

Even though the National Review once demanded the Senate change its rules on the filibustering of judicial nominees, one columnist for the conservative journal, Charles W. Cooke, told Fox News host Gretchen Carlson yesterday that Obama is setting the stage to undermine the democratic system of government: “You could just ignore the House. You could have a military coup; you could have anything at the end of this.” And all this time we thought conservatives would be delighted at the thought of a military coup.

4. Gay People Behind Homophobic Violence

Pastor Scott Lively helped come up with Russia’s new law that stifles free speech perceived to be “homosexual propaganda,” and he relies on some incredible logic when trying to explain how the country’s crackdown on the gay community and the increase in gay hate crimes has nothing to do with its anti-gay laws.

See, according to Lively, the Nazis were all gay. Therefore, neo-Nazis in Russia who are beating up gay people must be gay, too! Lively didn’t offer any evidence to back up his claims that Russia is only experiencing “gay-on-gay crime.” “The guys that are beating up gays in Russia,” Lively insisted, “are butch homosexuals.”

3. Immigration Reform A Muslim Brotherhood Plot

It turns out the allegation that Obama has secret plan to bring 50-100 million Muslim immigrants was shockingly not true. Apparently, Obama actually wants to open the borders to 150 million Muslims. The American Family Association’s Sandy Rios even thinks that the whole push for immigration reform is being engineered by the Muslim Brotherhood “to bring in tons of illegal immigrant Muslims who don’t wish us any kind of good.”

2. Government Using Zombie Culture To Prepare For Mass Executions

Are TV shows like “The Walking Dead” helping the government prepare “the public for mass executions of people”? Conservative talk show host Rick Wiles is just asking the question! During an interview with a spokesman for the Zombie Response Team, Wiles wondered if the popularity of zombie culture is really just a big government plot to make people more comfortable for impending killings. “I’m trying to figure out: What are they up to? What are they preparing for?”

1. Obama Almost Nuked America

And he would have gotten away with it, too, if it wasn’t for three meddling admirals. According to right-wing activists Erik Rush and Jim Garrow, Obama planned to kill 300 million people by setting off nuclear bombs across the US in order to help George Soros make more money.

While Obama’s dastardly plan was stopped in the nick of time by “three absolute heroes,” Garrow believes Obama will blackmail his way into an unconstitutional third term and maybe then he will nuke America for real.

Rios: Muslim Brotherhood Will Use Immigration Reform To Bring In Anti-American Muslims

Several fringe websites have picked up a video from YouTube savant Gabor Zolna about how “the half-baked African American Arab Muslim” Obama will use immigration reform to “bring in about 150 million Muslims” to the US as part of a plan to impose Sharia law and join the Caliphate. This is actually lower than anti-Muslim activist Avi Lipkin’s estimate that the President will bring in 50-100 million Muslims.

Naturally, Sandy Rios was asked on her show last week if Obama will in fact settle 150 Muslim immigrants in the US if a reform bill passes Congress.

Rios said that such claims make sense and that maybe the whole campaign for immigration reform is a Muslim plot.

The American Family Association radio host pointed to a Muslim organizer of DREAM Act activists as proof that “there’s no question that bad character Muslims, the Muslim Brotherhood and others, are going to use the whole amnesty problem that we have to bring in tons of illegal immigrant Muslims who don’t wish us any kind of good.”

Rios: Report On Gay Waiter Who Received Anti-Gay Message A 'Ruse' To Help ENDA

American Family Association radio host claims that the Overland Park, Kansas, waiter who in lieu of a tip received an anti-gay message from a customer staged the incident to help the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) pass the Senate. Rios offered absolutely no evidence to back up her claim, besides her gut feeling that the story was a “ruse” to aid ENDA, even though the waiter didn’t face discrimination from his employer.

“I smell a rat in this story,” Rios said, later adding: “I don’t believe a Christian couple wrote this note, I think it was a ruse because it was the week ENDA was being voted on.”

Religious Right Anti-Immigrant Group Warns Non-Christian Immigrants Will Encourage Sex Trafficking

Conservative activist Kelly Monroe Kullberg recently formed Evangelicals for Biblical Immigration as a response to the pro-reform Evangelical Immigration Table, and her new organization has received support from immigration critics like the American Family Association.

Like other Religious Right groups such as Eagle Forum and Family Research Council, the AFA is a staunch opponent of immigration reform and spokesman Bryan Fischer has even called for the US to require that all immigrations convert to Christianity and enforce a ban on Muslim immigration.

AFA talk show host Sandy Rios spoke to Kullberg this week about the supposed dangers of the Senate reform bill, including the laughable claim that the legislation will lead to “open borders” and therefore a rise in sex and human trafficking.

She also warned that people of “other faiths” and “incompatibly worldviews,” especially Muslims, will flood into America and “lessen the value on human life” in the US, making sex trafficking more acceptable. “As Islam takes root in America and other traditions take root, we are seeing a decline in human worth, human value and a rise in trafficking,” Kullberg said.

Numbers USA To Marco Rubio: Too Little, Too Late

Sen. Marco Rubio’s politically transparent U-turn on immigration reform may not be paying dividends among anti-immigrant activists as he would have hoped. The Florida Republican recently came out against the very comprehensive reform legislation he sponsored and helped pass in the Senate, but one of the country’s top opponents of his bill think it’s too little, too late.

NumbersUSA Director of Government Relations Rosemary Jenks told Sandy Rios yesterday that Rubio has already “poisoned the well” and now her group will urge congressman to vote against any immigration bill coming out of the House.

Rios: Do you think that Marco Rubio’s shift, slight shift, is helpful?

Jenks: Unfortunately, Rubio set out his positions in the Gang of 8 bill and that bill has essentially poisoned the well. We can’t go forward with a piecemeal approach now because that bill is sitting there, waiting for the House to pass any immigration bill so that Harry Reid can take that bill and substitute in S. 744, the Senate Gang of 8 bill, and then send it back to the House for a conference. That’s the path. So at this point, because that bill has poisoned the well, it’s too late for Marco Rubio to say, ‘oh you know I believed in a piecemeal approach all along and that’s what we should do.

Rios: Matthew Shepard Murder A 'Complete Fraud'

Not only did American Family Association talk show host Sand Rios plug the ex-gay movement and warn that gay people are trapped in “a powerful web of deceit” during her Values Voter Summit speech yesterday, but she also cited Stephen Jimenez’s shoddy reporting on the Matthew Shepard case to call his murder a “complete fraud.” She lamented that schools host the play The Laramie Project to teach tolerance to students and said that Shepard’s murder was a result of a “drug deal gone bad.”

Watch:

Today, we should note, marks the anniversary of Shepard’s death.

She also a read a letter from civil rights groups, including the Southern Poverty Law Center and People For the American Way, which urged Republican officials to skip the Values Voter Summit. Rios maintained that the letter proves that “it is a dangerous time to be a Christian conservative” in America.

Rios: Gays And Lesbians 'Caught In A Powerful Web Of Deceit'

Not only did Sandy Rios plug the ex-gay movement at today’s Values Voter Summit, but she also railed against public schools for creating an “ocean of propaganda on the homosexual issue” to indoctrinate kids.

“We have all these projects that talk about hate, we have the Matthew Shepard story, our kids really are just the products of the propaganda of the public school system,” she lamented.

“Millions of gay men and lesbians are caught in a powerful web of deceit that is breaking hearts.”

Rios: 'Fabulous' Ex-Gays Want To Tell Their Stories

Back in July, American Family Association talk show host Sandy Rios predicted that “thousands of ex-gays” would show up for an “Ex-Gay Pride” rally in Washington, D.C. Of course, fewer than ten did.

But Rios brought her ex-gay activism to the Values Voters Summit, telling attendees today that “there are tons of ex-gays with fabulous stories” that the media won’t mention. She even asked the audience if anyone knew an ex-gay.

No one raised their hand.

Rios: Gays Wanting To Become Scoutmasters, Big Brothers Proves They Seek To Abuse Children

American Family Association talk show host Sandy Rios this week once again connected the gay community to child abuse, this time telling Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality that the fact gay people want to serve as Scoutmasters or Big Brothers or Big Sisters is “big proof” they are pedophiles.

LaBarbera, whose upcoming AFTAH banquet will feature Rios as the keynote speaker, didn’t dispute her claim, and argued that “homosexuality itself is immoral behavior so we would expect one sin to have other sins lead to it, and that’s exactly what we find.”

LaBarbera: All these things: pedophilia; sadism; masochism, are overrepresented in the homosexual movement then it would be in the rest of culture.

Rios: I guess one big proof that we should have some concern, the activists’ hell-bent determination to make sure that Boy Scout leaders can be gay men and that Big Brothers and Big Sisters can be—well they’ve succeeded with that—Big Brothers and Big Sisters now has no — that’s fine with them, with that organization, that a person be gay or a lesbian and be a Big Brother or Big Sister. Now they are really determined to make sure they break down Boy Scouts completely, they’ve succeeded to some extent. But that to me indicates an interest of older people being with younger people. I don’t know, am I rushing to a conclusion on that Peter?

LaBarbera: First of all, homosexuality itself is immoral behavior so we would expect one sin to have other sins lead to it, and that’s exactly what we find. We both know, we’ve been around a long time and we know these stories of so-called gay men who had child abuse in their own past, their own upbringing, and incredibly they make no connection between the pedophilia they experienced as boys and girls, some of them, and their adult gay identity. Common sense would say that’s wrong but sadly there’s this thing in the movement.
