Christian conservatives Matt Barber and Peter LaBarbera on Thursday criticized a video project spotlighting LGBT-affirming Christians.

Author-activist Dan Savage helped inaugurate the Not All Like That (NALT) project, which is based on the It Gets Better project co-founded by Savage and his husband Terry Miller in 2010.

“The NALT Christians project is Christians – and hopefully no small number of straight Christians – talking to LGBT people and to other Christians, LGBT and straight,” Savage explained in a nearly 3-minute video posted at the nascent group's website. “NALT stands for Not All Like That. It's a term I came up with because at my talks Christians were forever coming up to me and saying, 'We're not all like that. We don't all hate and condemn gay people.'”

“If you're a Christian who believes that God cares no more about a person's sexual orientation or gender identity than God cares about the color of a person's hair or eyes, make a Not All Like That video,” Savage added. “If you don't take that step, if you don't speak up, then know that your silence allows the Tony Perkins and Pat Robertsons of this world to speak for you.”

NALT Christians was co-founded by Christian author John Shore and Wayne Besen, executive director of Truth Wins Out, which confronts the “ex-gay” movement.

In a Liberty Counsel video posted online, Barber called Savage “one of the most hateful and vile human beings on the planet.”

“This is comical,” Barber continued. “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.” (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
