Anti-gay bully Matt Barber claims to hate bullies

Matt Barber
It always amazes me when I read anything written by Matt Barber of the Liberty Counsel and the rabidly anti-lgbt publication BarbWire. I would actually respect his audacity  . . . that is if I didn't find him spiritually repulsive.

Case in point, his latest post, How Christian Kids Should Deal With ‘LGBT’ Peers. Believe or not, in this screed, Barber makes comments like the following:

So, with all of this cultural “progress” away from comprehensively fixed natural and moral laws, an inevitable question arises: How should Christian children and teens interact with peers who either identify with, or are believed to engage in, a lifestyle marked by homosexual or cross-dressing behaviors? The answer, generally speaking, is fairly straightforward: They should interact as all Christians should interact with all fellow sinners, with all people – with prayer, humility, wisdom, justice, honor, mercy, love and truth.

 . . . I can’t abide bullies. Never could. Most decent folks can’t. This is how I was raised. It’s also how I’m raising our three children. As did my father before me, I am teaching and equipping them to stand up to bullies. Not just when, and if, they happen to be the target of bullying themselves, but also when, and if, others are targeted. I’m raising my children to be friend to the friendless and champion to the vulnerable. I’m proud to say that all three of them are naturally inclined to such. I credit both God and His word of truth for that. 

Excuse me? Isn't Barber the same guy who sent out the following tweet about gays and the boy scouts:

And let's not forget several of his comments over the years about the lgbt community (courtesy of GLAAD Cap):

gay people "purchase kids" and treat them "like having little pets or something"

uses words like "purveyors of evil" or  "satanic" (1:19 in video clip) to refer to his political opponents

gay male relationships constitute "one man violently cramming his penis into another man’s lower intestine and calling it ‘love’” 

parents of a transgender child should be investigated for child abuse

Barber's writing and public utterances is like his personality - a silly schizophrenic concoction brewed by a man who thinks that the rest of America, particularly the lgbt community, is as forgetful and stupid as his supporters.  It serves to prove that he is not only a hypocrite and a homophobe, but he is also not that bright. What else can you call a man who goes on and on about his faith and love of God when there is a paper trail (easily found, I might add) which proves otherwise.

You can tell just by looking at Bam Bam, that before he left high school he and his Jock buddies spent a good amount of time, in Gym class terrorizing smaller boys. And I'm sure he looks back on his "glory days" fondly remembering how he and his football buddies played "smear the queer" by shoving the skinny band kids into lockers, where they stayed until school was over to terrified to come out, and feeling strangely safe.
