Peter LaBarbera calls recent suicide victims 'sexually confused'

"Porno" Peter LaBarbera has weighed in on the recent suicides. And as expected, his comments are highly circumspect:

Enough is enough: from my Facebook page:
No shame: HRC and other homosexual groups are exploiting the tragic suicides of sexually confused kids to attack religion: http://www.hrc.org/14955.htm.
The following is excerpted from Human Rights Campaign’s latest attack on religion– Peter LaBarbera, www.aftah.org:
HRC to Mormon Apostle: Your Statements are Inaccurate and Dangerous
Mormon Leader’s Inaccurate Statements Yesterday Fuel Anti-LGBT Violence, Teen Suicides
[Human Rights Campaign website] 10/4/2010
Washington – The Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation’s largest civil rights organization dedicated to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) equality, today called on Boyd K. Packer, the president of the Mormon Church’s Quorum of Twelve Apostles, to correct statements he made yesterday calling same-sex attraction “impure and unnatural,” claiming that it can be corrected and characterizing same-sex marriage as immoral. Packer’s inaccurate and dangerous rhetoric comes on the heels of the suicides of at least four teenagers over the past month, all victims of anti-gay bullying or harassment. ….

For the record, LaBarbera is defending the decision by Mormon apostle Boyd K. Packer’s weekend speech in which he condemned marriage equality and made the charge that people can change their sexual orientation.

Some, HRC and myself, see the speech as not only inaccurate but a show of bad taste in the wake of the recent suicides of several lgbt youth.

Word to LaBarbera - those "sexually confused youths" as you called them had names. And any "confusion" they had are due to ignorant people like yourself who seem to be obsessed with demonizing and stigmatizing the lgbt community to the point of making us hate ourselves. Those of us who are adults have gotten used to your nonsense. We laugh at your empty press conferences and your "undercover" missions to leatherfests. But those youths are the main reason why you must be exposed as the lying sack of homophobic !#@ you are.

They have yet to develop their survival skills and your words to them are like psychological dynamite. If you had any moral bone in that overbloated body of yours, you would realize just how much damage you do on a daily basis.

But I doubt that you do. You are so obsessed with yourself and your phony, futile mission of "eradicating homosexuality."

Here's a message for Mr. La Barbera. NO ONE needs an excuse to attack religion when all they want to do is divide, conquer and steal money.

Dear Porno Pete:

Please go back into your house, get back in the closet and stay there. No one needs your unhinged rantings coming across the internets any longer. Your worthless contribution to the right wing dominionist so-called christian echo chamber is disgusting.
