LaBarbera Wants Russian Law in America

Peter LaBarbera and Sandy Rios agree that America needs a Russia-style anti-gay law to eliminate “propaganda” that pushes kids toward being gay. Like what? Like gay people on television. And schoolmates who might have gay parents. Because that might force parents to have an uncomfortable conversation with their kids.

They’re always asking, ‘How does it harm you? How does gay parenting affect you?’ Here’s how we see it affecting us: Young children are being taught that homosexuality, homosexual relationships is just normal. It’s actually very selfish because the adult choices are basically forced on everybody. This situation we saw in Disney is writ large.

If there’s a lesbian parenting, lesbians have a child at a school, the whole school—there’s pressure on the school then to teach, to not have any stigma be on that whole idea of homosexuality. Of course we don’t hate anybody, we don’t want any child harmed but these situations are forced upon the general public…

You know, the children are being forced by this so-called domesticated homosexuality, they pay the price. People say, ‘Why can’t you just teach them? Why do you have to have any stigma at all?’ Well, basically they are asking us to give up our beliefs.

Oh, nonsense. You can keep thinking gays are icky until the cows come home and nobody will care. But you don’t get to punish or censor gay people just because you don’t want your kids to know that gay people exist.

    It must be lovely to be able to use “Go back to Russia” as a taunt against people who used to use it themselves.

    But it’s totally ok, for instance, for a Catholic parent to have to deal with an evangelical family in their joint public school, right? Or, even worse, a Mormon family. Should the Catholic parent be forced to tell their children that there are other religions in the world, and to deal with the difficult question of “are my friends going to Hell?” Of course, to avoid that, Catholics simply set up their own schools, but that’s apparently beyond the capacity of the fundies to understand.

    lol wut?

    Let me see if I have this straight. Presenting as a matter of course that some people are gay (just like one presents in, say, history and current events lessons that some people were in heterosexual marriages) is “forcing adult choices on everybody,” but having a Bible on your desk and having religious posters in the room isn’t forcing your religion on everybody?

    Well, basically they are asking us to give up our beliefs.

    Well, if your beliefs is that you need to make some kids feel unwelcome, left out, and (ideally) threatened, then, yeah, there should be a cost to you for your reprehensible beliefs. But that’s not really what’s going on here. People are just telling you to STFU without any further cost.

    He’s right. Some gayhomos “parent” a kid at my school. The day after they enrolled “their” child, the school was forced to stop teaching about The LORD and His stance on gayhomo mansex, and the day after that we all turned gay. The whole school! Kids, teachers, parents, the mascot, everybody! Damn you, gayhomos for being so…so…so appealing.

    But anti-gay laws are part of Sharia Law – are they now demanding the Us not only take up foreign laws but Islamic ones specifically?

    cptdoom (#7), the Talibangelists do have their won schools in some states. They’re called charter schools and are paid for with tax money.

    God forbid children learn empathy. No, literally, God forbids that.

    I do. I want to have dinner every night. I think I might be an addict.

    It’s not beyond the capacity of fundies. It’s my understanding there’s far more conservative Christian schools here in the states than when I was a kid in the 60s and 70s. And that’s a travesty because those kids are now abused far worse than if they attended public school.

    I much prefer fighting the theocratic attempts of fundie parents and public school administrators and teachers within the jurisdiction of the public schools. That than instead see increasing numbers of K-college children subjected to fundie indoctrination in lieu of a public school education. I think the systemic and insidious abuse of fundie children is one of the most under-reported stories of our time. Much of our society still doesn’t give a rat’s ass about education and the protection of children’s rights where we all pay the price for that in terms of economic growth rates.

    Shorter La Barbera and Rios – “If things had been like this when we were kids we’d be sooooooooooooooo gay right now.”

    Gee, I wonder what it’s like to have to explain to your kids that you believe something that most of the rest of your culture doesn’t. Must be doubly difficult when you can’t even supply a rational reason for that belief.

  • D. C. Sessions

    Well, basically they are asking us to give up our beliefs.

    Not often you see them outright admitting that their beliefs can’t survive contact with reality. Not “survive contradiction,” just contact with the demonstrable existence of people who don’t fit the model.

    I mentally stumbled when reading that, because it mentioned “forced” without “throats”, which is unusual.

    Er, what? Someone at his kids’ school is living with seven dwarfs?

    Evangelicals are jealous, I think. Homosexuality is way more fun than evangelism, so they assume that it has the kind of drawing power that they wish their religion had, and are bitterly resentful about that.

  • Cal

    @ Moggie… I think they are referring to some Disney kids show that now features lesbian parents as part of the cast. I think the show is called “Good Luck Charlie”.

    Actually it’s Charlie’s America, Family and Morality-Destroying Rangers.

    No, they are being shown that other people think it’s normal. You are welcome to teach your kids that you don’t think it’s normal. The only thing the school is teaching is that you can’t attack or proselytize kids that have different beliefs.

    It’s actually very selfish because the adult choices are basically forced on everybody.

    It’s called civilization; the price of entry is you have to live around other people. Gasp!

    Oh, that. Farrah Fawcett was my favourite.

    This is why they hate atheists who are sane, normal, and mostly happy. They want Jack Chick atheists – hairy, foul, fat, unshaven, and easily convinced by Pascal’s wager. Reminds me of a friend who pointed out that dumb TV sitcoms need to have characters who are significantly dumber than the average viewer – or they wouldn’t look dumb to the audience. Fundamentalists need people who look miserable compared to actual Fundies. Please don’t show their children an atheist who sleeps late on Sunday, gets up, works in the garden, then studies for a test on Monday. They. Must. Be. Miserable.

    .

    Gays, too. There are plenty of movies and such which show gays as bizarre outsiders. That’s OK – who wants to live like that? But the children mustn’t see that little Tommy in school has two normal dads.
