Peter LaBarbera throws public tantrum, flaunts his irrelevance

Last month, our anti-gay buddy Peter LaBarbera and a few assorted (be nice, Alvin) had held a press conference in Chicago to speak against President Obama's supposed "radical homosexual appointments and overall “gay” agenda."

Religious right figures such as Matt Barber, Oklahoma legislator Sally Kern, and Diane Gramley appeared.

Well the press conference came and went, but we heard nothing about it. I couldn't find any articles about it. And Peter never mentioned it on the Americans for Truth webpage.

That is until today. Apparently, even though several religious right "dignitaries" showed up at Peter's press conference, the media took a serious rain check.

Peter alluded to this fact in a piece that I guess was supposed to make fun of the recent protest by lgbts against the San Diego Mormon Temple.

Lgbts and heterosexual allies held a "kiss-in" at the temple this week to support a gay couple cited for trespassing after they shared a kiss on temple grounds.

Apparently according to Peter, since only 30 people showed up to protest, and the media almost outnumbered the protestors (his words), then the protest was a flop.

In comparison, no media showed up at his press conference last month, and Peter was mad over that:

What is over-the-top, however, is the liberal (”mainstream”) media treating every “queer” protest and event as important news. (Meanwhile, Associated Press and all national media skipped our coalition press conference in Chicago against President Barack Obama’s “gay” agenda — held on the very day that Obama was capitulating to the “Gay” Lobby by signing an Executive Order supporting “domestic partners.”) If homosexual activists do succeed in destroying the influence of the church and ushering in the oxymoronic notion of government-supported homosexual “marriage,” the woefully biased American media will be able to claim major credit.

Twenty-five members of the media showing up at a press conference means success. No media showing up your press conference means failure, Peter.

It's one thing to be irrelevant, but it's another to flaunt your irrelevancy.

Lgbts have long suspected that no one longer cares for your ramblings, Peter. Thank you for proving our point.

And for putting a smile on my face this Friday morning.

His and Her Kern Revolutionary Regiment
by James Nimmo

(OKLAHOMA CITY) Not content with calling gay citizens terrorists and twice carrying a loaded handgun into the Oklahoma Capitol Building, GOPer Rep. Sally Kern has enlisted her husband, Steve Kern, into the family business of trying to maintain gays and lesbians as non-citizens.

Steve Kern is the pastor at Olivett Baptist Church in Oklahoma City, a position that gives him a culturally bully pulpit to read all the dirty parts of his bible and blame gay people for making him do it.

It's important to remember that when Steve Kern, standing in for his wife, speaks of liberty and freedom (Oklahoma Gazette, July 22, ) he's not using these words looking for some lost American Garden of Eden. Those new to the Kern Kontroversy can read more here: .

Kern and his bullying colleagues are feeling threatened by, and are desperate to forestall, the encroaching lose of their ability to dominate, terrorize, and otherwise impose apartheid on this country's gay and lesbian citizens. As this verbal lynch mob continues to get high on their hot air of bible bluster and goes off the edge with their flat earth rhetoric they are becoming more separated from the mainstream of Americans who know that gays and lesbians are integral threads in America's social and political fabric.

Gays and lesbians pay taxes, hold steady jobs, volunteer in the community, maintain families, get elected to public office, and serve in the Armed Forces. We bleed, live, and die just like everyone else. How is that a threat to anyone who takes the time to think about it?

How is diversity a threat to anyone unless they want to hide from what they don't understand?

It's remarkable how the most consciously self-righteous are blind to the facts right in front of their faces.

How revealing that the Kern Krowd uniform of choice is a black robe--setting themselves up to judge the rest of us?

LaBarbera could have summed up his column by just writing, "Waaaah!!!! Why won't anyone pay attention to me?"
