Anti-gay bigot Matt Barber mad at feds for acknowledging same-sex couples

Friday, September 30, 2011

Matt Barber of the right-wing Liberty Counsel is angry at President Obama and the Census Bureau:

Matt Barber


A pro-family attorney says the U.S. Census Bureau’s decision to include households headed by same-sex couples is just another attempt by the Obama administration to legitimize same-sex “marriage.”

The 2010 census, which shows that about 20 percent of the estimated 646,464 homosexual couples in the country checked “husband” or “wife” boxes on their census forms, marked the first time the Bureau tracked information about same-sex “spouses.” Matt Barber, vice president of Liberty Counsel Action, sees the report as another tactic of the radical homosexual activist lobby in its attempt to undermine the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).

“This is another attempted chip-away at the Defense of Marriage Act and to gain full federal sanctioning and government recognition of counterfeit same-sex marriage,” he contends.

That’s right. Apparently the secret army for the “advancement of homosexuality” met at our secret headquarters (shaped like the famed Hall of Doom from Challenge of the Superfriends) and decided that the Census Bureau is the best place to push our supposed agenda.

I won’t even comment about how stupid Barber’s comments are. But I will say how they underscore how nasty and mean-spirited the man is.

Apparently in his world, we should ignore same-sex couples, which means no doubt we should ignore issues involving their families and their children.

Doesn’t sound very Christian to me.

I think I like Barber better when he obsesses over “gay sex.”

  6. One can always count on the religious bigotry and animosity of Mr. Barber’s ignorance. He and his fellow fundaMENTALists are the bane of America and the failure of the Republican party. Extremists such as Mr. Barber need to be carefully monitored by the FBI’s domestic terrorism unit.

  10. The good news is – once i got four households to check those same sex boxes, I got a terrific toaster oven for signing them up.

  11. What more can I say. GOP veteran Congressional staffer of 28 years, Mike Lofgren, published an attack on today’s Republican party, calling them “an apocalyptic cult” “full of lunatics.” I totally agree 110 % we need to rise up and vote them out of office. Reclaim America for THE PEOPLE! Cast your vote for Democrats.

  26. Ah yes, “the radical homosexual activist lobby.” The ones who lobby for such radical rights as the right not to have the crap beaten out of you for being who you are, and the right to be treated equally by the law in all secular, civil matters. In a country that has separation of church and state formally enshrined in its constitution.

    How radical! *eyeroll*

  34. Why be angry at the recognition of the truth? The truth is: same-sex couples exist…always have/always will (even among other species in nature) and deserve everything hetero couples have!

  38. If it’s not this it is that but keep giving Liberty University big government bucks and it will all even out.

    Posted on Saturday, October 1, 2011 at 3:25am
  39. I can’t imagine Barber not ever being mad at President Obama. A black President who recognizes gays as first class American citizens? Ooooh my, what is this county coming to. We need to return to the days of lynching blacks and performing lobotomies on gays.
