Matt Barber of Liberty University/Liberty Counsel has decided to explain to us why he wants people to start calling gay activists homofascists. The short answer is because of what happened at Mozilla.
Some quotes from Matt's blog:
Many Christians have been warning for years that the radical homosexual activist lobby is made up of Christian-hating fascists who are in rebellion against both God and nature, who are hell-bent on criminalizing Christianity and pushing to the fringes anyone who publicly acknowledges natural human sexuality and the age-old, immutable institution of legitimate marriage as created by God.
Sadly, many people, even many Christians, think that I and others are using hyperbole when we refer to this sexual anarchist “LGBT” movement as “homofascist” or the “Gaystapo.” I hope you’ll think again. It’s time to wake up and smell the impending anti-Christian persecution. It’s fully at hand.
What Matt refuses to acknowledge (because he just doesn't want to) is that many gay activists ARE Christians.
Do you see what’s happening? Did you read that? That’s fear — deathly fear. Fear of a radical, hateful, intolerant, obnoxious, fascist, evil and power-crazed group of sex-obsessed anarchists who demand that we all affirmatively celebrate their deviant and self-destructive sexual sins and unnatural perversions.
Christians, buckle up. Your whole world is about to change. The Rainbowshirts are emboldened and they’ve broken out the long knives. “Therefore pride is their necklace; they clothe themselves with violence” – Psalm 73:6.
See there! It must be true because he quoted a Bible verse. I wonder if he knows that the author of that quote is most likely bisexual.
They smell blood in the water. I’ve often said that these folks want those who speak Biblical truth about human sexuality and legitimate marriage either 1) dead, 2) imprisoned or, if they can have neither of these, 3) marginalized to the point where they can’t even support their families.
Talk about hyperbole! Wow.
No, I'm not going to give you a link to his blog. I read about this at Truth Wins Out.
Evan Hurst from Truth Wins Out comments on the above:
Actually, we just want to live in a country where theocracy-loving wingnuts can('t) deny the rest of the country their Constitutional rights, based only on the fact that our freedom makes them feel uncomfortable. Matt Barber and his friends grossly overestimate how much the rest of the country really cares about them when they suggest that we want to kill them, imprison them or deny them the right to employment. The truth is that, as the anti-gay movement dies off, the great majority of the country will just go on with their lives, trying to live them to the fullest. Nobody is going to be thinking about those who are so bizarrely homophobic that they can’t go an hour without worrying about what the “homofascist threat” is going to do next. And no, we won’t try to deny them their Constitutional rights, as they have done with us.
