Homophobic Matt Barber's sickening love of violent rhetoric leaves one to wonder

Our favorite homophobe, Matt Barber of the Liberty Counsel, is at it again. A week after being humiliated by yours truly for attacking a study with no proof that the study was false, Barber is today whining about bullies, making sure to use violent terminology. In this clip, he is talking about the so-called "secular left":

Barber: They're bullies. And we know that we people stand up to the bully on the playground - the bully on the playground intimidates, that's what he does, intimidates people into silence, into fear, into avoiding the bully. And oftentimes the bully is the paper tiger and when the righteous individual who is being bullied defends his or herself and punches the bully in the mouth, guess what, the bully more times than not has a glass jaw, falls down and then everyone on the playground says "whoa, the bully was a weakling after all."

I'm not as concerned with Barber's violent imagery more than the fact that it's so unoriginal. He said pretty much the same thing in 2010 about the Southern Poverty Law Center:

Sometimes the most effective way to deal with a bully is to simply pop him in the chops. While it may not shut him up entirely, it usually gives him pause before he resumes flapping his toxic jaws. It also has the effect of showing the other kids in the schoolyard that they have nothing to fear. Though the bully struts about projecting the tough-guy image, he’s typically the most insecure pansy on the block.

And then there is the following he said about gay sexual intercourse:

 There is nothing "conservative" about "one man violently cramming his penis into another man’s lower intestine and calling it 'love'";

Far be it from me to act as an armchair psychiatrist, but I feel comfortable in saying that Mr. Barber has issues.

Hat tip to Right Wing Watch.

I remember an editorial in Christianity Today where someone was trying to discourage violent military analogies by Christian activists. James Dobson, then head of Focus on the Family, took...well...violent exception to the editorial.

Matt has a very sad definition of love-obviously he has never loved another human being.
My definition of love is when my partner of 21 years held me all night the day my mother died and I could not sleep. is when he sat beside my hospital bed after my appendectomy (he also pretended he was my father because of a homophobic male RN) Love is when I have come home from working a 12 hour shift and he has made a big bowl of popcorn and poured me a glass of my favorite red wine. (We both have to work a lot more than straight married couples because of health insurance-we cannot put each other on our policies like our married friends here in Ohio)
I hope Matt finds love someday...I really do.

You're right. Barber does have issues. He gave away one of them through his bully analogies: PROJECTION. I'm sorry, but people like Barber are impossible to feel sorry for, considering how they've been the schoolyard bully ever since they've been known. Also, considering how much people like him cry persecution at even the slightest hint of criticism, If I were him, I would not have even brought up the glass jaw comment, lest I be considered a hypocrite.

knowing Bam Bams description of gay sex, why isn't what he would call "Godly sex" described as "one man violently cramming his penis into a womans womb?"
