Last week Robin Roberts, the widely beloved Good Morning America host, came out of the closet by casually mentioning her longtime girlfriend. Naturally, the bigots are throwing a tantrum over it. The deranged Peter LaBarbera slams her for it, saying that “every coming out is a tragedy.”

He went on to crank up the outrage to 11:
“The homosexual so-called marriage movement is evil,” LaBarbera said. “We need to do what Reagan did with communism, we need to come right out there and say: this movement attaching the God-ordained good of marriage to an abomination which is homosexuality, calling that marriage, that’s evil, it’s an evil movement.” He went on to claim that “the homosexual so-called marriage movement has become a huge platform to corrupt children” as its message “corrupts the minds and the souls of young children.”
It may be bitter cold outside, but LaBarbera’s outrage warms me a little. I bask in the glow of aggrieved bigots.
