LaBarbera’s Gripe With Coke Commercial

While all the other wingnuts have been throwing a fit about that Coke commercial during the Super Bowl, Peter LaBarbera says the real problem with it was that it included — GASP! — a gay couple. Run! Run away! You’re gonna catch The Gay!

But pro-family observers objected to the content altogether.

“Coke’s Super Bowl ad is only the latest step in the escalating government-corporate campaign to normalize homosexuality in the culture,” said Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality.

“Americans are being conditioned to accept sexual perversion as normal and good, and there is some big corporate money behind it,” LaBarbera told LifeSiteNews. “It’s sad that families can’t even watch the Super Bowl anymore without having their faith undermined.”

Pssst. Peter…America the Beautiful was written by a lesbian. You could catch The Gay just by singing it! It’s a trap!

    “It’s sad that families can’t even watch the Super Bowl anymore without having their faith undermined.”

    You know, if your faith can’t stand up to the normal events of everyday life, maybe there is something wrong with your faith.

    Anyway, who cares what’s on TV? I thought all this sin stuff was a matter of free will. Is free will no longer a part of contemporary evangelical Protestantism?

    Don’t tell Mr LaBarbera that God Bless America was written by a foreign Jew from Imperial Russia.

  • John Pieret

    Wait a minute! The God-given free enterprise system wants to accept sexual perversion LGBT people as normal and good? Is LaBarbera some sort of godless Commie?

  • busterggi

    I’ve heard that ad several times and not once did I hear anyone singing in Gay. Is it a secret language that LaBarbera somehow knows?

  • Trebuchet

    And America The Beautiful by a woman who may or may not have been a lesbian.

    I’m sick and tired of The Government, through profit-seeking private corporations somehow, normalizing groups I hate and fear and am aroused by!

    Americans having their faith challenged by reality is simply unacceptable. Why can’t gay people do the decent thing and simply stop existing so as to not hurt these poor people’s religious fee-fees?

    LaBarbera: Damn those gays for existing while I’m trying to watch beefy men tackle each other!

    So…his faith is so strong it can be “undermined” by seeing two men holding hands for a fleeting few seconds in a TV commercial? Ok.

  • abb3w

    Ah. I was wondering how long it would take for that detail to trigger an explosion of poutrage from the right wingers. Looks scarcely enough to constitute a holding action on that front of the culture wars.

    “Americans are being conditioned to accept sexual perversion as normal and good, and there is some big corporate money behind it,”

    There is big corporate money behind conditioning people to accept corporate products as normal and good, yes….what’s the word for that? Oh yeah; advertising.

    I’m afraid that the United States (and in fact, pretty much the whole Western Hemisphere) is pretty much a lost cause for those who cannot stand the sight or thought of those people. If Peter LaBarbera and those of like mind want to maintain their purity, there’s almost no time left: they’ll have to leave for Russia immediately. (Some parts of Africa and the Middle East would be OK on the sexual morality front, but the people there are brown and often not Christians. Not that the Russians are real Christians, but at least they’re not Muslims.)

    And don’t forget pants. Russian men wear pants, unlike many men in Muslim countries. And any good Christian man has to wear pants, just like Jesus did.

    Oh, it was much worse than that – they were roller skating! With their daughter! It’s the end of civilization as we know it!

    Why is a godly family even watching TV? Especially the Superb Owl?

    If you want to dump your kids in front of a TV, there are plenty of channels featuring hetero sex.

    By the way, I grew up in a Christian family without a TV. Now I am an atheist.

    there are plenty of channels featuring hetero sex.

    But aren’t True Christians (TM) against porn?

    I posted at the site where the article is, to let them know that the woman who wrote the song was a lesbian. When I went back just now to see if anybody had replied to my comment, my comments were gone. I typed up a different comment, and when I clicked to post it, it said I’d been blocked by the site. Way to ignore the truth! LOL

    I think someone is projecting just a smidge.

    The brief glimpse of two men skating with a young girl between them, is *automatically* a gay couple and their daughter? Seriously? I can easily imagine myself and my brother-in-law having done something similar with my niece. Or even with some friend and another friend’s daughter.
