About Homosexuality last week accused black leaders of “selling
out” to the gay rights movement, which he described as a “liberal
LaBarbera, whose group's mission is
“countering the homosexual activist agenda,” made his comments
during an appearance on the Jesse Lee Peterson Radio Show.
On the program, he described the
African-American community as having been “infested” with
Guest host and fellow anti-gay activist
Matt Barber agreed.
“The blacks are a noble people,
certainly, and there are many … Bible-believing Christians who are
offended and disgusted by these illegitimate comparisons between
mutable, changeable, deviant behaviors, homosexual behavior, and
immutable, neutral characteristics such as skin color,” Barber
said, adding that “black leaders have completely sold out to the
radical LGBT lobby and are complicit in making these illegitimate
comparisons” between the LGBT rights movement and the Civil Rights
“Yeah, the sellouts keep growing,
said. “You know, I sort of see this as a liberal cult, this
homosexual revolution. Everybody’s joining it who, you know, who’s
basically gotten rid of their Christian understanding of the world.
They’ve just rejected God. It’s an anti-God movement.”
LaBarbera went on to confuse
transgender people with drag queen.
“[L]et’s remember the gay
revolution started with transgenders. It was drag queens at that
Stonewall bar who started throwing bottles and such at the police.
And so we’re in a cult here. It’s a liberal cult. And a lot of
corporate America has bent the knee, and many, many people, I think
you once said, Matt, you think over half the evangelical Christians
will accommodate themselves to this sin movement, and I fear you’re
right,” he added.
