Hate group leader Peter LaBarbera is *very* concerned about the victims of Jerry Sandusky in the wake of the Penn State scandal.
Not that they got raped. That’s irrelevant to him. He’s just worried that they might have caught Teh Gay:
… how many boy victims of homosexual predator Sandusky will end up believing that being homosexual (“gay”) is “who they are”? How many will struggle with sexual identity issues? And how many will be told by LGBT advocates and liberal-minded people just to “accept being gay” as “who they are” because they were “born that way”?
How many idiotic statements are in that article? Instead of admitting that Sandusky is a pedophile, which he is, LaBarbera describes him as a “homosexual predator” with an emphasis on the first word… because those two things are synonymous in his warped mind.
Reader @zyxek points out that LaBarbera never applies the same messed-up logic when men rape women:
Obviously (to everyone except LaBarbera), not every gay person was molested, not every molested person turns gay, and not every molester is gay. But his mind is already set, though, so he’ll never look at anything that speaks to the contrary.
David Badash puts it well at The New Civil Rights Movement:
… LaBarbera is only interested in spreading false information, furthering his personal stature as an avowed homosexual hater, and padding his bottom line – this time on the backs of sexual assault victims. One has to ask, has LaBarbera no shame what so ever?
LaBarbera offensively identifies “pederastic molestation” as the cause of homosexuality, leading any logical human being to assume that homosexuals are created by sexual assault, and therefore, every homosexual on earth must in fact be the victim of sexual assault. never mind what all the psychological associations say about homosexuality, a certified hate group President must know best, right?
This line of thinking is clearly false, and LaBarbera, for all his blind hatred, should know better.
That’d require the ability to see past one’s bigotry, a character trait LaBarbera doesn’t possess.
