Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans
For Truth About Homosexuality, has criticized companies backing gay
marriage in two briefs filed before the U.S. Supreme Court.
Nearly 300 corporations, from Apple to
Xerox, signed on to the briefs which call on the high court to strike
down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and Proposition 8,
California's gay marriage ban. The Supreme Court will hear oral
arguments in both cases later this month and is expected to hand down
rulings in June.

In an interview with Instant
Analysis (formerly OneNewsNow), LaBarbera criticized the
companies for “pushing homosexuality on the American public.”
“[W]hen you start pushing
homosexuality on the American public using the government, that's
another matter. Then it becomes a tool of repression against
Christians and people of faith who simply want their right to not
support homosexuality,” LaBarbera
He went on to describe the Prop 8 case
as essentially the Roe v. Wade of the gay rights movement.
“If the court imposes national
homosexual marriage, that will be a disaster – and it will fuel the
culture wars for decades to come,” LaBarbera said.
