Hateful Bigot Blathers About Love

The deranged Peter LaBarbera of Americans for the Truth About Homosexuality went on the Crosstalk radio show with Vic Eliason and they took a call from a woman with a gay son. Read this absolutely twisted exchange with the woman about how to love the son without “embracing” his homosexuality.

Caller: The reason I’m calling is I have a son that’s homosexual and my thing of it is, it’s what Peter said, even if he is my son I can love him unconditionally, I will not accept the behavior. If he comes to my house and brings a partner, there is no way they are staying in my house together. Jesus said: do you love me more than these? Even though they’re our children, we are to love him first. Jesus will bring our children out but we’ve got to be on our knees before the Lord and on our face. We bombard Heaven for their deliverance and at the same time we uphold these values before them.

LaBarbera: That’s wonderful. You love your son and that’s not in question. The lie of the other side is to love your son you have to love or embrace his homosexuality, and that’s really a lie from the pit of Hell. We don’t give an alcoholic, we don’t say, ‘I love you so much I’m going to give you a bottle of scotch every month.’ That’s not true love. True love is what you’re talking about, it’s defending godly values and praying for your son to be delivered out of that lifestyle.

So you have to reject your gay child to prove that you love Jesus more than them. That’s just fucking warped.

About Ed Brayton

After spending several years touring the country as a stand up comedian, Ed Brayton tired of explaining his jokes to small groups of dazed illiterates and turned to writing as the most common outlet for the voices in his head. He has appeared on the Rachel Maddow Show and the Thom Hartmann Show, and is almost certain that he is the only person ever to make fun of Chuck Norris on C-SPAN.

    Comparing homosexuality to drug-addiction is pretty warped too. Almost as warped as comparing it to pedophilia.

    Only one bottle a month?

    Only one bottle a month?

    True love is sharing a bottle once a week.

    I agree wit oranje. One bottle a day is the least any respectable alcoholic could get by on.

    You love your son and that’s not in question.

    Hey now, back it up there. Yes it is, if the word love is to have any meaning.

    Don’t worry, you can be bigoted towards your own son without feeling guilty! Just use Jesus! It’s what He is for!

    The sad part is that the mother really is trying to be a human being, It’s just that her “christian values(?)” have perverted her perspective.

    You know what they say, “True love is never admitting your son’s a homo”. That’s in Proverbs…or something.

    I think that’s often the case. You can have people who are themselves naturally of a generous and tolerant nature taking stances which are the opposite, compelled by their bigoted religion. Mark Twain once wrote of how his mother had one of the kindest, gentlest hearts of anyone he knew, but was absolutely convinced that slavery was right because her preacher showed her where it was right right there in the Bible. It’s like an addiction which changes someone’s personality.

    That poor mother needs an intervention.

    So you have to reject your gay child to prove that you love Jesus more than them.

    I’m not sure whether “rejecting your child’s homosexuality” is the same as “reject your homosexual child”. I’m pretty sure they’re just regurgitating the old christian mantra “love the sinner, not the sin”. Nothing shocking there…

    Just a short note to that Mot6her: your gay son, who you seem to be rejecting, will someday pick your nursing home.

    Oh wash! Its Mother.

    True love is a bottle of wine or 4 beers daily (at least that’s how I express mine).

    “Jesus will bring our children out but we’ve got to be on our knees before the Lord and on our face”

    …PFFFFFFhahahahahahahahaHAH!

    Childish euphamisms aside, the woman is warped in the head, and Lababera more so. If you love your son but don’t accept his homosexuality, then you don’t accept him, do you? And if you don’t accept him then how can you be said to love him? Think it through.
