peter_labarbera.jpgDo you have a "favorite" anti-gay extremist, a wingnut who, despite the fanatical absurdity of their arguments, you grudgingly admire (sort of) for their tenacity and their willingness to engage opponents?

One of Andrew Sullivan's readers posed a similar question to Dan Savage. Watch Dan's response below.

Incidentally, Dan has a point. While Peter LaBarbera is undeniably crazy, and his fanatical obsession with the most extreme gay sexual fetishes is suspect (to say the least), he's probably the most die-hard hate group leader out there. If you're going to be on the wrong side of history, you might as well do it big, right? Peter LaBarbera definitely does.
