Holy heck, this is an actual quote:

FTA:  "Yeah I think that's great," LaBarbera agreed. "I would love to see it. We always wanted to see one of the kid in high school who was counseled by the official school counselor to just be gay, then he comes down with HIV. But we never really got the client for that."

 They're actually hoping for a kid to get AIDS to help them more effectively spread their hate.
 
2013-10-18 12:37:17 PM
Peter LaBarbera - President of the anti-gay organization Americans for Truth about Homosexuality.
Rick (Richard) Scarborough - Leads Vision America Action and the Judeo-Christian Council for Constitutional Restoration.

So much homophobia coming from two guys who's first names are Peter and Dick.

A tea party leader and former Baptist pastor - who believes that AIDS is God's judgement against LGBT people - this week proposed filing a class action lawsuit against "homosexuality".

This is just weapons grade stupid.

First off, if God did send AIDS as a punishment against homosexuals, why aren't heterosexuals immune? If he did sent it to punish gays, then why do lesbians have significantly fewer cases of HIV? How does one prosecute a sexual orientation? If this man is actually a leader of the Tea Party, is it possible said party is populated by dimwitted, ignorant buffoons who have no grasp on reality and hide behind a veneer of fiscal reform to hide their bigoted and hateful core?

"I enjoy the fact that they often give each other AIDS and die."  Said by:  A.  Someone's curmudgeon grandfather  B.  A Russian politician  C.  A member of a school board in Arkansas (well, not anymore)

The hate is thinly veiled, if veiled at all.  That's why they're fighting a losing battle.  Look at some of those photos in California and other places of gay couples so happy that they can marry.  Opposing that is like saying "I don't want other people who don't live by my personal beliefs to be happy, in fact I want to make them miserable."  That message just doesn't sell outside of teatard circles.

The former Baptist pastor opined that "homosexuality much more likely leads to AIDS than smoking leads to cancer.

I can't imagine that this guy researched this statement before repeating it.

However, by the same logic, heterosexuality much more likely leads to abortion, incest, child abuse, birth defects, and juvenile diabetes and homosexual children than homosexuality does.

It was my junior year of high school and I was unsure if I wanted to study physic, go into engineering or just be premed like everyone else.  I was talking to mt guidance counselor and she commented that she had seen me the previous week walking with my new girl friend.  Sort of sheepishly she handed me a brochure and apologized by saying we're required by federal law to had these out.  I didn't know what she was talking about until I read the brochure - Be the Gay: a beginners guide.

Actually he claimed that the CDC had "shown" this, although I'm not sure how THAT works, since something as simple as condom use would skew the FARK out of those supposed numbers.

We always wanted to see one of the kid in high school who was counseled by the official school counselor to just be gay, then he comes down with HIV.

Growing up in the Chicago burbs, then at a Big Ten school (Go Illini), then in Chicago, I was friends with a decent amount of gay people so I learned early on they're just people like everyone else and to be supportive of equality. But then I moved to San Francisco for a few years, and it was just a different level. Previously, it was mostly gays my age that were just figuring shiat out, but in SF, I met gay and lesbian couples of all ages and backgrounds, some of whom had been in partnerships for decades, some who had families together. Some who were kicked out of the military (one was an Arabic translator, like we need those), some who met in support groups for married men that realized they were gay (both had kids who are still totally in their lives). While there were some jackasses (like in every demographic), the majority were wonderful people I was grateful to call friends and co-workers. I just cannot fathom why anyone would want to deny them the happiness straight people take for granted. I was just at a lesbian wedding this summer, and you cannot tell me there was any less love that day than in any of the other weddings I've been to. It's nothing less than insanity.

TL;DR - Fark these people. Goddamn bigots need to shut their mouths and disappear into the trash bin of history where they belong.

Mikey1969: How the Hell do you even DO this?

The former Baptist pastor opined that "homosexuality much more likely leads to AIDS than smoking leads to cancer.

Actually he claimed that the CDC had "shown" this, although I'm not sure how THAT works, since something as simple as condom use would skew the FARK out of those supposed numbers.

We always wanted to see one of the kid in high school who was counseled by the official school counselor to just be gay, then he comes down with HIV.

Wow... Just wow. That's some real Christian thinking right there.


I think he meant he wanted to see this kid sue their counselor (he's a lawyer, so he wants to see the kid as a client is what he meant, though its badly worded).

First off, if God did send AIDS as a punishment against homosexuals, why aren't heterosexuals immune? If he did sent it to punish gays, then why do lesbians have significantly fewer cases of HIV? How does one prosecute a sexual orientation? If this man is actually a leader of the Tea Party, is it possible said party is populated by dimwitted, ignorant buffoons who have no grasp on reality and hide behind a veneer of fiscal reform to hide their bigoted and hateful core?


God seems to really, really hate heterosexual Africans.

It seems likely that there are bisexual people who may lean in one direction and then later lean another, whether due to conscious choice or not.  It also seems likely that people who lean heavily towards being gay but who also identify strongly with certain cultural or religious institutions may deny those feelings and keep telling themselves they're straight to better fit in.

In the first scenario, I don't see any problem, have sex with whoever you feel most attracted to.  The second scenario is obviously problematic, as people shouldn't have to deny safe and consensual basic desires like that out of fear or societal pressure.

I'm baffled as to why they haven't yet.

It's always just one more event away.  Always.  The Farkers who threaten it, the people on my Facebook feed who (mostly) imply it, even the freepers who are already counting how many "Urban Ferals" they will bag when the time comes.  That time is always juuuuuust around the corner, and is always going to be started by a real true patriot somewhere else.


And in the eyes of all these people
Don't you know that this could start
On any street in any town
In any state if any clown
Decides that now's the time to fight
For some ideal he thinks is right
And if a million more agree
There ain't no Great Society

-Frank Zappa, Trouble Every Day (1965)

 They're actually hoping for a kid to get AIDS to help them more effectively spread their hate.


I hope they find the kid and sue.

Because that opens the door for a married individual who was counseled by his/her church not to use contraception and subsequently caught an STD from an unfaithful spouse.  Precedent.

How on Earth can anyone take these people seriously? I mean, really seriously; as normally functioning human beings? Is there some sort of mass psychosis bug that had gone around affecting these people?


Yes, it's called American Evangelical Christianity.

It is American only in that it is taking place within the borders of the United States.

It's only tie to Christianity is the practitioners of it claim that it is.

It sure as hell is Evangelical - they won't shut up.

They exhibit many behaviors that should have them all under heavy sedation and daily therapy with a professional psychologist getting them back to reality.  In the mean time, like other mental patients with serious disorders, they should be barred from voting, and strongly discouraged from breeding.

It was my junior year of high school and I was unsure if I wanted to study physic, go into engineering or just be premed like everyone else.  I was talking to mt guidance counselor and she commented that she had seen me the previous week walking with my new girl friend.  Sort of sheepishly she handed me a brochure and apologized by saying we're required by federal law to had these out.  I didn't know what she was talking about until I read the brochure - Be the Gay: a beginners guide.


My brochure was called Cock Tastes Like Vanilla Pudding (But You'll Need To Suck a Few Dozen Before the Taste Kicks In)

It took me until I sucked my fiftieth cock that I realized it was a lie. It turns out I was targeted as part of the Gay Agenda. And now, I am hopelessly addicted to cock.

miss diminutive: A tea party leader and former Baptist pastor - who believes that AIDS is God's judgement against LGBT people - this week proposed filing a class action lawsuit against "homosexuality".

This is just weapons grade stupid.

First off, if God did send AIDS as a punishment against homosexuals, why aren't heterosexuals immune? If he did sent it to punish gays, then why do lesbians have significantly fewer cases of HIV? How does one prosecute a sexual orientation? If this man is actually a leader of the Tea Party, is it possible said party is populated by dimwitted, ignorant buffoons who have no grasp on reality and hide behind a veneer of fiscal reform to hide their bigoted and hateful core?


stop asking logical questions - they mark you as one of those communist progressive welfare city people

a recent freeper thread celebrated the fact someone had labeled them "bigoted, ignorant, misogynists" - most of the comments read: "well, two out of three" or "damn right!"

Nah, I wouldn't give them such an easy way out.  I'd want them to watch as they become increasingly irrelevant to everyday life in America.  That their opinion and $2.50 gets them a ride on the NYC Subway and nothing more.

Wow, I posted this on FB to see what my more rabid Right Wing friends would say... This was the response(Edited in the interest of not giving away personal details of my friend, and with the important parts highlighted):

First of all, I need to clear something up: Rick Scarborough is NOT a Tea Party leader. He's the head of a Christian conservative group, but it isn't a Tea Party. His ideas and opinions are his own, and he does NOT speak for any Tea Party, or its membership. These comments weren't part of a speech he was giving, they were part of a private conversation he was having with someone else while attending a Tea Party function. He wasn't asked by the Tea Party to come and express his views on homosexuality, and nowhere will you EVER find any Tea Party supporting these views. Second, Rick Scarborough is an idiot. That's about all I can say about him.

I was attending a dinner for the XXXXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXXXXX(Edit by Mikey1969: NOT any kind of Tea Party group) last year. I'm an active member, and sit on several boards for the organization. During the dinner, I began discussing with the fellow seated next to me the idea that the State should consider a one or two year moratorium on deer hunting to try to help the deer populations recover while increasing the amount of elk tags to keep their population to manageable levels. A reporter for the XXXX XXXX XXXX (our local liberal talking head) was also seated at the table and became visibaly angered by the idea of issuing MORE hunting tags. She knows who I am, and that I'm an active member of XXXXX. Should she have gone back and written an article titled "XXXXXX XXXXXX XXXXXX XXXX Leader States They Should Support Killing Elk"? No, a title like that alludes to XXXXX supporting what is obviously my PERSONAL opinion.


So it boils down to this(From this and a few other conversations I have had with this friend):
1. Since the Tea Party doesn't have any "organized leadership", nobody is a "leader".
2. Even though this was a broadcast event, it was a "private conversation", and not a speech.
3. Tea Partiers are warm and cuddly. Not only do they never say anything bad about Gay Folk, they also aren't racist in any way.
4. Apparently Tea Partiers avoid Rick Scarborough like The Plague.
5. False equivalencies are so totally awesome!

Sad part is; this guy was much more level headed 15 years ago when we first met and hung out more often, even though he was 17-18 at the time( I was 22 or so), we had a lot of good conversations on more Right Wing topics. At the time though, he was FAR more moderate. Now, it's all I can do to keep him from disowning me. Hell, I posted this story with no more commentary than to say that trying to "sue homosexuality" is idiotic, and that wishing for someone to get AIDS is about as dickish as you can be. I specifically did NOT add any of my own comments regarding ANYthing political.

There's a difference between free speech and shouting fire in a movie theater.

Canada refused to allow FoxNews into its borders because it demands that a news channel actually have some integrity. Free speech or not, that's the right decision.

Peki: There's a difference between free speech and shouting fire in a movie theater.


That's correct.  And you are celebrating laws that criminalize criticizing a movie you like, while pretending they are yelling fire.

Canada refused to allow FoxNews into its borders because it demands that a news channel actually have some integrity. Free speech or not, that's the right decision.

Yay, censorship!

/not sure, but I believe the right to free speech is in the Canada Constitution, as is a right to vote, which isn't in the US one

It is, just broken into a bunch of sections and amendments so I don't feel like copying and pasting all of them.

Of course, having "free speech" in your Constitution then ignoring it means you don't really have it.

(We're certainly not perfect on speech down here, but we're better than anyone else.)

Ablejack: "We always wanted to see one of the kid in high school who was counseled by the official school counselor to just be gay, then he comes down with HIV."

He could probably find someone who was not well instructed about precautions of heterosexual sex and got an STD!


How about someone who got an STD because of bad education goes to this guy and tells him about it, but be as vague as possible about who it was, look guilty when asked if it was with another male but say nothing, then when this jackhole sues because he got too giddy at the thought of having a case, have the kid say in court, "Actually, I didn't know about protected sex because of people who denied letting me and my girlfriend know." Then, for added measure as the giddy jackhole suddenly goes pale, drop the mic and request to step down from the witness stand.

Hey, kid never lied about anything...

This is one of two areas in which I wish our country was more like our friends to the south. I am firmly in the "I may not like what you have to say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it." So long as 'captive audiences' (e.g. store clerks, paramedics, teachers, etc) aren't forced to be badgered by hatred, then I say let them spew whatever they like.
