NC pastor who argued against hate group designation says gay men need diapers

Americans For Truth About Homosexuality’s Peter LaBarbera and Liberty Counsel’s Matt Barber protested on Tuesday outside of the headquarters of the Southern Poverty Law Center, along with other anti-gay activists, over the group’s “thinly-veiled, one-sided campaign to demonize adherents of traditional Judeo-Christian morality.”

AFTAH, along with other anti-gay organizations, is incensed that the SPLC classified them as “anti-gay hate groups.”

One of the activists joining them was North Carolina pastor Patrick Wooden, one of the chief organizers for the North Carolina amendment to ban same-sex marriage. Not that the SPLC needed further proof of AFTAH’s demonization of gays and lesbians, but while appearing on LaBarbera’s radio show, Wooden told LaBarbera that homosexuality would “most certainly mean the extinction of the human race.”

He claims that the medical community is suppressing the truth about the medical problems of homosexuals as it would make people “gag and no one would want to be in a lifestyle like that,” arguing that by the time gay mean reach their middle ages they “have to wear a diaper or a butt plug just to be able to contain their bowels” because of “what happens to the male anus.”

  16. I think we found a new definition of Santorum as if the previous one wasn’t disgusting enough.

    It bothers me that these people call themselves “Christian” (Meaning Christ Like) cause as much as I have read of his teachings Jesus would certainly never have made up lies about people to justify hatred – if he even had any !

  27. Why is this guy so focused on the male anus? Hmmmmm…… I hear a closet door creaking open.

    Posted on Wednesday, January 18, 2012 at 6:30am
  28. even if that were true, is he suggesting that people with incontinence don’t deserve equal rights? so all those people that wear depends have given up their rights. he is an idiot

  29. If I had a Dick, id slap him with it. What a sorry excuse for a pastor.

    Posted on Wednesday, January 18, 2012 at 6:32am
  30. If I remember correctly, the medical industry has talked about the male anus before, specifically that, on average, gay men have less prostate cancer!
    Maybe he has a hidden agenda! :)

  31. Just because he’s got the “Dr” thing near his name really doesn’t make him intelligent.. After all, where is he coming from ?? Will be waiting for the news to mention him again , caught with his pants down !! So sad !!

  38. Another F’ing idiot! My anus is just fine. I think the homophobic males are the ones with the problems because they are so afraid to touch their ass in fear that they might enjoy it that they don’t clean properly and trouble brews in later years.

  39. This is a man obsessed with the words anus and butt! Hmmmmm….come on out of the closet buddy and find some love and truth. It’s actually pretty great out here in the light.

  41. Supercilious Asshat. HE’S the one who should wear a diaper, because he is full of SHIT. Like most people full of shit, he plays in his own shit, and spreads it everywhere he can. I’ve been a Critical Care Paramedic for over 25 years. Over the years I’ve worked with hundreds of gay men. I have not had ONE case of a gay man wearing a diaper or using a butt plug for anal leakage. Please. In my experience, its the straight folks who get all freeky-deeky and put all manner of crap up their ass. Also, the heteros who exhibit hyper-religiosity publicly are some of the BIGGEST anally adventurous folks Ive ever seen!

  42. And seriously, the extinction of humans? That’s just nonsensical.

    Don’t you dare blame all of us for the ignorant bastards that shoot their mouth off down here. Not everyone is a religious fanatic where I’m from. Not everyone is a genius where you’re from.

    We’re fighting down here for our rights and you don’t need to add to the stupidity by bringing up a gruesome and foolish war.
    The next time you want to make a comment about an imbecile make sure you engage your brain and think before you speak. Thank you.

  46. Umm.. Did anyone notice he’s african american? When just two days ago we celebrated what happened in this country. When all you focus on is the gay men, not lesbians or trans gendered people, it just shows me he is uncomfortable with one fraction of the glbtq nation. What about the other letters!? What a fucking dumb ass!

  61. Before I even watch, just reading the description… just saying… there are women in straight couples & adult film industry who do the same so, this doesn’t happen to the female anus? Just the male anus? (o_O) The description says: because of “what happens to the male anus.” -___- Really now?! Like they say… common sense is not so common.

  67. the good thing about being gay is that no matter what anyone says or tries to legislate that they can’t stop us from being gay! 16 years here with my wife and i don’t need a piece of paper or the acceptance of some ignorant hillbilly to make me feel complete. nothing and no one will ever stop us from living our lives the way we want to live them. so he can stick that in his TIGHT ass. that’s not hate, that’s just the truth :)

    Posted on Wednesday, January 18, 2012 at 9:02am
  68. Ok, so why is it ok for women to enjoy anal sex on behalf of their male partners, and men who want their female partners to use a strap on on them so they can enjoy anal sex, but two men….well that’s just wrong…….What the hell is the matter with this guy, sounds like a closet case to me, he knows this fact to be true from his own experience I think…….I’m thinking he wears a diaper himself under all those ridiculous notions.

    Posted on Wednesday, January 18, 2012 at 9:05am
  69. “Butt Plug” is for sexual stimulation of the anus and vagina. It affects men and women in the same way. As a Pioneer of the Gay Rights Movement that started in the 1960s, and at age 71, I am living proof that these accusations are totally False. The proof is in my Bestseller life story as a gay man whose only medication, to date, is for hypertension. (https://createspace.com/3570311)

  90. I found this post somehow when I was on Single Dad Laughing – I am Christian, unless you’re gay. A great read.

    I read the article and the replies. I would hazard a guess that there are lots of people experiencing pain and fear who posted here.

    Behavior and expressions are usually a matter of how we, as people, deal with our deepest emotions.

    It would seem Dr. Wooden is experiencing the same emotions as many here, for different reasons. History has documented the bigotry against African Americans in the South.

    Without positive support systems and healthy examples of how to deal with negativity, any one of us can end up like Dr. Wooden – degrading others to help himself feel better.

    I would hope that rather than degrading others, people would see this story, and others like it, as reminders to show appreciation for those who have been healthy role models or who have lended support in times of need, giving us the skills and motivation to propel ourselves to a better place.

  96. He is right. Older Gay males do wear diapers more that a hetero man. I know. Im a coordinator for a senior home here in the bay area. After so much abuse the rectum just gives out.

    Posted on Friday, January 20, 2012 at 1:40pm
  97. Yep. Yayo is right. I dont know about butt plugs and such but gay males have more corrective surgery on the rectum than most. But who cares about all that stuff.

    Posted on Sunday, January 22, 2012 at 3:56pm
  99. we all know wht the facts are about the rectum giving out from constant anal sex but do we really have to talk about it. Its a little taboo. If I make the choice to be a gay man then I will deal with my own prolapsed asshole when I cross that bridge. I know its on its way but we still dont have to talk about it.

    Posted on Monday, January 23, 2012 at 12:29pm
  100. This is why I’m not Christian, because of a-holes like this that are in the top echelons.

    He’s assuming all gay guys like and practice anal sex and that all gay guys take it up the ass regularly. What an idiot. Makes me ashamed to be USA American. The whole world laughs at our constant supidity…
