Peter LaBarbera finds it ‘reassuring’ when gays are affected by STIs, violence

Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality spoke to “Coach” Dave Daubenmire last week, telling Daubenmire that he finds it “reassuring” that the gay community is impacted by STIs (sexually transmitted infections) and violence as it confirms to him that “God believes [homosexuality] is an abomination.”

“If it really is a detestable behavior as God says, you’d expect it to be linked disproportionately to disease, we see lots of gay-on-gay violence, domestic violence,” LaBarbera said. “There’s no logic to the liberal left, they are all about doing whatever the homosexual movement wants, it is like spoiled children but nobody wants to say no them.”

Listen:

UPDATE: LaBarbera posted an “explanation” of his remarks on his website:

“Let me anticipate a homosexual activist criticism of my comments – which of course will be distorted… I am not “reassured” that homosexual men contract so many diseases related to their perversion, in the sense of taking some sort of heartless satisfaction from their suffering. Rather, I am reassured that Nature and the practical realities of the homosexual lifestyle affirm God’s revealed truth about this sin.”

“As I say in the interview, ‘The real world is backing up what the Bible says about homosexuality.’ This should further motivate Christians to lovingly share God’s free gift of salvation through Jesus Christ to people caught up in homosexual behavior.”

  13. I hope that he doesn’t get cancer cause that would prove that God was displeased with him.. Yeah his logic is ludicrous

    Posted on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 2:25pm
  14. What a wing nut! In what world does he live where straight people do not get exactly the same STI’s gay people do, and have their safety from violence assured by being heterosexual?!!!

  19. How do you explain cancer…people are so ignorant…

    Posted on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 2:30pm
  20. Let me “lovingly share God’s free gift of salvation through Jesus Christ” by repeatedly ghetto-stomping the faggotry out of you. Yeah…that’s pretty much the gist of it.

    Posted on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 2:30pm
  21. Oh, yeah! & the earth is only 5000 years old! & same gender sexual behavior is NEVER seen in nature, right?

    Posted on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 2:31pm
  22. What an Idiot…..:P

    Posted on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 2:31pm
  23. I would be reassured if he slowly suffocated to death while his head was up his ass.

    Posted on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 2:32pm
  24. I hope he gets a really bad rectal infection from having his stupid head up his ass so much.

    Posted on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 2:34pm
  25. I love in the audio how he says all the stores in SF are selling gay porn with barebacking…….now how in the world does he know this unless he is inside fantasizing about it?????

    Posted on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 2:35pm
  26. Somebody smack him upside his head, he obviously has a screw loose…

    Posted on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 2:38pm
  27. Stupid is as stupid is as stupiid does>

    Posted on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 2:38pm
  28. Another idiot speaks.

    Posted on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 2:44pm
  29. He cites problems within the gay community as evidence that it is an abomination…however, does he ever think that perhaps these problems are the result of mental anguish caused by guys like him and those brainwashed by him? Disgusting >:(

    Posted on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 2:47pm
  30. Ah yes, when bad things happen to people you don’t know, that is an affirmation of God’s intention? Not my God.

    Posted on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 2:48pm
  31. WHY do we continue to insist on give people like this “air” to voice their abominations if we starved them of their fame and media fixes, they would shrivel up and die like their meaningless drivel was meant to.

    Posted on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 2:52pm
  32. What a MORON!!!

    Posted on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 2:53pm
  33. Another idiot..wait till his dick falls off from some place he stuck it…

    Posted on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 2:54pm
  34. I absolutely agree with Wayne! Let’s NOT acknowlege IGNORANCE, please.

    Posted on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 2:55pm
  35. He looks like a pedophile…so, I think his comments are void.

    Posted on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 3:02pm
  36. I bet the closet he’s stuck in is *FaBuLoUs*.

    Posted on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 3:05pm
  37. What a disgusting excuse for a human being.

    Posted on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 3:06pm
  38. His thinning hair is a sign that mother nature does not approve of his thoughts. I am reassured by his dying follicles.

    Posted on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 3:08pm
  39. I would find it more reassuring is he just went ahead and shaved his dome…my GOD, make a little mustache up there to spread what little you have around! GAG!

  40. Americans For Truth About Homosexuality?..how would this balding pinhead know ANYTHING about us unless he IS one of us and if he was one of us his name would be JUDAS..TRAITOR…..JUST GO AWAY!..

    Posted on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 3:26pm
  41. That won’t take long considering the amount of shit up there

    Posted on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 3:29pm
  42. i have to ask, like other people in this forum, why we give audience to people like this? on the face of things, he appears to be the bigget closet case ever created. if he thinks that these ills are only visited upon lgbt people, then he is sadly mistaken. it is people like him to perpetrate this violence, and who infect other people by virtue of their closeted activities. if a bigot spouts filth to the media and no one listens, is it still really happening?

    Posted on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 3:37pm
  43. what a nasty mean man! We know what his heart is like now don’t we?

    Posted on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 3:52pm
  44. I believe in the germ theory of disease, not the God’s vengeance theory. The latter has as great an absence of evidence as the spontaneous generation of disease had.

    Posted on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 3:54pm
  45. I find it reassuring that he doesn’t even pretend to think like a human being.

    Posted on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 4:10pm
  46. Another idiot who is in dire need of a handler!

    Posted on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 4:15pm
  47. He must be a ‘chriustian’…

    Posted on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 4:20pm
  48. What a moron.

    Posted on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 4:28pm
  49. Do I detect a closet gay? Certainly not someone to comment intelligently about gays.

    Posted on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 5:06pm
  50. the man clearly has an obsession with gay men and the sex they have

    Posted on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 5:35pm
  51. One day these people who use God as a veil will have to be in front of Him, and what will they say then?

    Posted on Saturday, April 20, 2013 at 12:10am
  52. He is such an ass. Another idiot speaking without knowing what he is talking about.

    Posted on Saturday, April 20, 2013 at 8:16am
  53. So, what about when bad things happen to this guy? Is that also God’s justice? Nah, it must be because gay-Satan is out to get him…
