Looks like Porno Pete LaBarbera has finally found a cause he can get behind other than trying to get behind leather men at street festivals! The anti-gay nutjob is leading a protest of the Southern Poverty Law Center to denounce the organization for putting his and other far-right extremist anti-LGBT groups on their list of official hate groups.
LaBarbera said the SPLC is engaged in a thinly-veiled, one-sided campaign to demonize adherents of traditional Judeo-Christian morality. He noted that despite the considerable hatred and anti-Christian bigotry emanating from homosexual activists (e.g., Dan Savage's vile hate-site, Santorum[dot]com), the SPLC has never labeled a "gay" organization or website as "hateful."
Could it be because LGBT organizations aren't advocating that Christianity be made illegal, Christians should be refused jobs because of their religion, Christians be stoned for their sins, Christians shouldn't be allowed to adopt because of their violent religion, or Christians be refused the sacrament of marriage since they've mucked it up so badly over the years?
The speakers list is a Who's Who of Mental Illness. LaBarbera is touting the gathering as "black pastors" confronting the prestigious hate group monitoring organization, but he also adds "and pro-family Christian and Jewish leaders" to help provide cover for the real stars like white-as-they-can-be hatemongers Linda Harvey and Matt Barber.
This is the same strategy the far right has used in Indiana. They try to use the African-American community as diversity shields they can hide behind. This allows them to pit minority groups against each other while they stand in the shadows like puppetmasters.
