Pillars of Faith: Peter LaBarbera, Anti-Gay Creep

by Lorette C. Luzajic

You might call this man a sex addict — he sneaks into men’s saunas, S&M dungeons, and orgies. He’s got more gay skin mags and DVDs than a supply warehouse.

His name is Peter LaBarbera, head of Americans for Truth, a Bible believing Christian organization whose only intent is to expose the gay agenda. And for this reason, he must stay on top — pardon the pun — of the action, to make sure no kink goes uncovered.

A Man With Issues

Pullquote: He’s a creep with a traveling peep show.

Theoretically, Peter could work to expose the truth about the triple ex parties, man-girl rape, or the proliferation of butt-buster pornography for straight men. But it seems he’s more interested in exposing what rippling hunks do to each other in the privacy of their own closets.

Human rights activist with ex-ex-gay group Truth Wins Out recently said online that LaBarbera is a man with “‘issues’ who under the pretense of activism shows hardcore gay porn to church folk. He’s a creep with a traveling peep show.”

Though LaBarbera must know firsthand you can’t “catch gay” or he’d have caught it by now, he’s convinced the gay agenda is out to convert your children. The ex-Washington Times reporter was involved in ex-gay conversion ministries, but found he could better get the message across as president of Americans for Truth. He frequents every gay S&M event in the U.S., and takes pin-up photos for his site.

“Porno Pete”

Pullquote: With clear and detailed prose, he gives full attention to the “satanic, depraved sodomitic orgies involving feces and urine” we otherwise may have missed.

He also reports on the scene, missing no minutiae of possibilities in queer couplings. With clear and detailed prose, he gives full attention to the “satanic, depraved sodomitic orgies involving feces and urine” we otherwise may have missed. The site is a wonderful channel for repressed homosexuals or curious old ladies to read porn and stay holy.

“Porno Pete,” introduced the public to films featuring heinous homosexual sodomy and bestiality with goats and dogs, films he had to hunt long and hard for, as further “proof” of gay deviance. But according to a few brave men who decided to see for themselves, there was nothing gay in this particular batch of debauchery.

Fear Mongering for Money

Pullquote: Expressing his anti-gay obsession is how he makes his living.

Expressing his anti-gay obsession is how he makes his living. He’s given hundreds of interviews proclaiming the hidden threat that lurks behind a “civil rights” face. As policy analyst at Concerned Women for America he commented “on the homosexual issue from a Christian and conservative perspective.” He’s also worked as a “homosexuality critic” for the Illinois Family Institute. He still has time in his critical critic schedule to speak out against the “born gay” or “orientation” theory, “leftist” Latino Christians, communism, and support the contra terrorist attacks against liberal civilians in Nicaragua.

Queer Political Agenda

LaBarbera also supports the Constitution Party, comprised of members active in white supremacy organizations — like David Duke’s European American Unity and Rights Organization. Peter has promoted and supported the apparently pro-family, pro-faith group and downplayed their blatant racism and anti-Semitism.

The Constitution Party has a very queer agenda indeed: to rescind women’s vote, stop all immigration, and establish Old Testament law, which includes the stoning of homosexuals. They are adamant about gun ownership and seek to outlaw gambling.

A Family Man

As a Christian family man, as ordained by God, perhaps Pete would really like to spend more time at home with his wife and kids. But he’s got all those movies and magazines to slog through.

And though he’s surely seen all there is to see by now, he can’t miss a parade or orgy. While his helpmate sits at home alone, he just can’t tear himself away from his work.

    Wow, what a creep.

    And he should finally come out of the closet and live out his homosexuality normally …

  • http://www.sindri79.blog.is Sindri Guðjónsson

    Wow!

  • trj

    Poor guy. Obviously a closet case who is caught by his own conflicting fundamentalism. I bet he has to compensate for being called “Barbara” or “LaBarbie” in school. Or maybe being an idiot just comes naturally to him.

  • Roger

    Well, he’s certainly a pillar of something.

  • Ty

    I think alcohol is the devil’s brew, and leads god fearing folk to Satan when they drink it.

    Which is why I buy as much of it as possible, to protect people from buying it. The more of it I have, the less of it is available to infect good Christians.

    Or something.

  • The Medium Lebowski

    This creep and the reverend Ted Haggard should team up and make gay christian porno.

  • The Medium Lebowski

    From his Store page:

    The Gay Agenda in the Public Schools

    Watch the video that exposed how homosexuality is being taught to our youth as “normal and moral.”

    Item #TGA-IPS

    “We shall sodomize your sons, We shall seduce them in your schools, in your dormitories, in your gymnasiums, in your locker rooms, in your youth groups, Your sons shall become our minions and do our bidding. They will come to crave and adore us. All laws banning homosexual activity will be revoked. Instead, legislation shall be passed which engenders love between men. Our writers and artists will make love between men fashionable…. We shall raise vast, private armies…to defeat you. The family unit….will be abolished. Perfect boys will be conceived and grown in the genetic laboratory….All churches who condemn us will be closed. Our only gods are handsome young men. All males who insist on remaining stupidly heterosexual will be tried in homosexual courts of justice and will become invisible men. Tremble, hetero swine, when we appear before you without our masks.”

    I’ll bet you that he was very excited while wordsmithing this.

  • The Medium Lebowski

    Re the product description above, the subtext is that all males are secretly gay and that it doesn’t take much to get them to come out of the closet.

    Don’t think sooooo.

    I’m straight and no guy is ever going to seduce me.

    Methinks Peter LaBarbera is projecting his inner homosexuality on straight males.

  • brgulker

    Weird, and if it’s all true, disturbing. I can’t help but wonder if this is non-biased.

    (honest) Question:

    Do you think it’s possible to think that homo-sex (the behavior, not the predisposition) is morally wrong without being a bigot?

  • The Medium Lebowski

    Do you think it’s possible to think that homo-sex (the behavior, not the predisposition) is morally wrong without being a bigot?

    Yes. I mean let’s not go overboard here in an attempt to be ultra politically correct.

  • Shelly

    “Homo-sex”? Seriously? You asked a question as offensively as possible.
    The spectrum of human sexuality is just that, a spectrum.
    You want support for being bigoted and I don’t think anyone but a certain type of christian will do that for you.

    Sorry, but this played in my head as I read that comment:

    “We shall ₤µ©λ on the beaches, we shall ₤µ©λ on the landing grounds, we shall ₤µ©λ in the fields and in the streets, we shall ₤µ©λ in the hills; we shall never surrender …”

    I know, I’m a bad person.

  • http://WhoHasTimeForThis.com David Cowan

    of course homo sex is morally wrong when you define morality using ancient, superstititious, neo-Caveman texts. Perhaps one day, though, we will all agree that morality is simply a social contract that we won’t hurt each other. When that day comes, we will agree that the answer is No. Your question, on the other hand, will be morally questionable for the hateful discrimination it proposes.

  • DarkMatter

    Now, faith comes by peeping, and peeping at gay S&M venues.

  • http://WhoHasTimeForThis.com David Cowan

    OK, let me be more clear: Yes, it is inherently bigoted to ask the question.

    Non-consensual sex are obviously immoral, so I think it’s safe to presume you’re asking the question about consensual sex acts. Consensual and informed sex acts among people who understand the consequences and risks do not hurt anyone. Therefore the question only makes sense if you’re evoking some religious morality that ascribes sinfulness to people who engage in natural, unharmful fun. Such arbitrary and unjustified judgment of innocent people is BIGOTRY.

  • The Medium Lebowski

    I have no presuppositions and no bad intentions. Just a question.

    People can be quick to condemn from both ends of the political spectrum. Sometimes people try to make up for past wrongs by moving from one extreme position to the exact opposite.

    I personally didn’t see any hate in your question.

    An interesting question that this brings up is why is there such a universal vilification of homosexuality. It’s not just the product of the three insanely screwed-up Abrahamic religions. You can find this abhorrence in every culture across the planet with only rare exceptions.

    I consider myself a moderate liberal. All of my friends are liberal atheists. While we support gay rights and even gay marriage, none of us wants to know the details of what goes on behind closed bed room doors. Most of us recoil at the mere thought of two men having sex while supporting the rights of consenting adults to do what they wish in private.

    So, why is that? Why do smart, college educated people who think the buybull is a load Bronze Age nonsense, feel this way despite supporting gay rights?

    Please spare us the moral outrage over my not being very PC here. I assure you that it’s pointless. However, I am genuinely interested in hearing possible explanations for this almost universal feeling.

  • Tim Anderson

    brgulker asked Do you think it’s possible to think that homo-sex (the behavior, not the predisposition) is morally wrong without being a bigot?

    Ask the Creator who has created over 50 different animal species that practice homosexual behavior. Is your Creator wrong?

  • The Medium Lebowski

    I have always held the religious and the right wing in contempt because of their smug righteousness. No one is as quick to judge and condemn others as they are. Except for extremists on the left. You see this symmetry everywhere. Just go read the articles and comments on Huffpo. A news article may cover the widespread problem of honor killings and honor rapes across Islam from the western Sahara to Iran and some extremist liberal busybody will weigh in with absurd claims that Islam is not misogynistic and demands that we should open our minds and try to understand it.

    Yeah, right.

    Rather than jumping to condemn someone for asking a question like a rabid fundie, how about we all take a moment to first consider the question and then try to come up with a reply that warrants the bandwidth needed to post it?

  • DarkMatter

    The idiom of ‘One man’s meat is another man’s poison’ is reasonable personally for me at least.

    BTW I find I have to wait for some time for the post to load. Is it because there are more hits compared to a week before?

  • Jon

    I think brgulker asked a legitimate question. Perhaps the wording could have been better! I immediately bristle at the mention of the word ‘morality’ simply because of the context in which we normally find it. Sex is a pleasurable expression of love (or maybe just attraction) between two people and there is nothing immoral about that. Some heterosexuals might find gay/lesbian repulsive but that does not make it immoral. As previously stated, what makes a sex act immoral is when it is used to harm someone (eg rape, pedophilia). It is important to make the distinction between morality and personal taste, a concept Mr. LaBarbera has yet to understand. He is the queen of bigotry, linking gays with s&m, scat, pedophilia, etc., as if heterosexuals are not also into that! Talk about hypocrisy! Heterosexuals invented s&m!

  • http://sourapplesblog.com Elliott

    I echo the sentiments many people have already expressed, that gay sex can ‘not be your bag,’ but you can respect other’s right to do it. But I think an important distinction needs to be educed here, between it ‘not being your bag’ and ‘being repellent.’

    I obviously have personal tastes when it comes to sex. I am more attracted to white women, but not as a rule. I am dating a blonde, but I prefer brunettes. I have certain proclivities regarding how my mate should maintain their bodily hair (or not). But I don’t find any of the alternatives to my preferences ‘repellent,’ or ‘repulsive,’ or ‘distasteful,’ or any of the other things people have said of gay sex above.

    People should be free to explore their preferences, but it worries me that so many people want to do find gay sex gross. Maybe it is a simple matter of personal preference as they claim, but I’m inclined to believe there’s more to it than that.

    So Daniel, when is your “coming out” party? Really, your obsession with homosexuality seems strangely the same as those you obsess over.

    Here’s an unbelievable story. Four students have committed suicide in Thomas M. Horvath’s math classes since 2007.

    As usual an interesting, albeit strangely biased, report followed by a series of arguments straight out of the propoganda book, with little objectivity. Which makes me wonder how to have a discussion between a view that liberal relativism is moral and the idea of moral as taught by religions. No dialogue among humans usually ends up in a even more hurtful situation, sometimes war. And discussion that goes round and round the mulberry bush might not be an adequate dialogue to prevent that. Whichever side of that fence you sit or stand, we are all responsible for improving that dialogue if we want an improved society. of course, if we really don’t care, we won’t take up that responsibility.

  • James

    Sorry – my comment was general in nature; not a direct reply to any posting…

    You know… what is it about two men that’s so threatening? Everytime I hear from the anti-gay lobby, it’s always about gay men who recruit, gay men who molest, gay men who do this and that. And yet, in our culture – for the most part – the idea of two women is super hot. That is, as long as they fit into men’s idea of beauty and still get it on with guys. Oh yeah, and as long as they don’t have any opinions, political or otherwise.

    I wish God would just put down her purse, speak up and let us know how she feels.

  • Stuart

    It basiclly comes down to the individual and what they find is attractive. They enjoy cause they can imagine themselves being present or find something that satisfies an urge within them.

    I find lesbian sex abhorrent, its gross and it creeps me out. Heterosexual sex is slightly better because than I can at least see the gender I am attracted to in a sexual way. Than there is gay sex, which to me is hot. It varies for different people.

    James is right though, how come the fight is alway against gay men, why not the lesbians and the bisexuals.

    I also think that daniel includes posts like this solely because it is a hot button issue amongst the christian conservatives, they claim their moral superiority based upon issues like this. It is one of the reasons why I left the church and started thinking critically about why I do and act and think the way I do. Against critical thought there is no argument that the bible is right.

    Severe closet case. I’d feel sorry for him if he wasn’t such a cowardly, vicious, morally devoid scumbag. But he is. So I don’t.

  • jittahbug

    It seems this is the only way he can interact with his true self without being criticized and condemed by his religion, under the cover he is exposing it for the “great benefit” of the human race lol.

    When are people going to realise that hating, two men that like eachother, is the EXACT SAME AS RACISM.

    Some people just cant get on with their own lives without being ignorant twisted pricks who think they have the right to choose for others.

    Just a view from Jittahbug! x

  • professoryackle

    Or a gay christian promo.

    (Madonna has the straight xian promo covered with the vid for ‘like a prayer’.)
