Peter LaBarbera is the founder and president of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality.
The gay community attempts to use the rainbow as their symbol, and with that in mind, could the New York Times be right that a ‘rainbow wave’ is possible? After all, 2018 has more LGBTQ candidates than ever before. The Times has noted that there are 21 openly LGBT individuals nominated for Congress and 4 running for governor.
Peter described how the homosexual factor is a non issue in all of this except when it’s being celebrated. If you criticize it, that’s viewed as bigotry and homophobia. This makes it hard to campaign by communicating an opposing viewpoint.
Jim pointed out how the LGBT community is making an issue out of the Trump administration’s desire to define gender as male or female. Peter responded by describing the LGBT response as one that communicates the idea that President Trump is redefining terms. He believes that it’s a case of ‘projection’ with those on the left. They charge the opposition with doing the very thing they’re guilty of. In other words, it’s the homosexual and transgender movements that have been trying to redefine gender. Now we’re up to over 50 genders and Peter believes it’ll only keep growing.
For the first time in America’s history, a person who identifies as transgender could be the first person elected governor in Vermont. Another is in the state of Arizona where the Human Rights Campaign has endorsed an openly bi-sexual woman for U.S. Senate.
Peter believes the media is not discussing these new gender related terms because they are, ‘…part and parcel of the homosexual/bisexual/transgender movement.’ He also believes it’ll be up to alternative media, like VCY America and others, to reintroduce fairness into coverage.
He went on to describe this as the redefining of civil rights, a change that’s been led by the Southern Poverty Law Center. The tactic is to define moral opposition to immoral sexual behavior as hate. If you do that enough, it begins to penetrate people’s thinking so that eventually people associate those opposing immoral behavior as being part of a hate group.
This broadcast also dealt with the following key points:
–Nancy Pelosi said she would introduce the Equality Act as one of her first
orders of business if Democrats retake the House in November. What is this act,
how far will it extend and will it contain a religious exemption?
–The Human Rights Campaign has been mounting a huge ‘get out the vote’ campaign
going state to state to promote LGBTQ issues.
–Have churches proved invaluable to LGBT efforts in some areas?
–The Libertarian Party believes gender identification should be determined by the
individual involved, not by the government.
