Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans
For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH), recently criticized the
religious right for failing to reverse gains made by the LGBT rights
Speaking with Mike Heath of
MaineResistance, LaBarbera applauded Christian conservative groups
for resisting proposed LGBT rights measure, but added that he wants
to see recent gains reversed.
Anti-gay activists, LaBarbera claimed,
have God and truth on their side.
“That's the shame of our movement,”
said. “The homosexual activists behave as if they have the
truth. We act as if we're ashamed of the truth when, in reality, we
have the truth. Look at homosexuality; God says it's an abomination.
Well, what a shocker that the behavior that God says is an
abomination is vastly disproportionately represented among sexually
transmitted diseases. Gee, Mike, what a shocker!”
Citing the recent spike in syphilis
cases among gay men, LaBarbera declared that "”what we're
finding in the science is that homosexuality is as bad as God said it
was and you can't change that.”
