Robin Roberts’ Coming Out Is A ‘Tragedy’ Says Right Wing Activist

Peter LaBarbera called “Good Morning America” anchor Robin Roberts‘ announcement that she is in a long-term same-sex relationship, a “tragedy.” The president of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH), a certified anti-gay hate group, was interviewed by with Vic Eliason of the Voice of Christian Youth (VCY America) radio yesterday.

Claiming that “every coming out is a tragedy,” LaBarbera called it “an extra step of defiance of advocacy.” He lambasted Michelle Obama’s tweeted support of the GMA star as “sad,” criticizing the White House, President Obama, and the First Lady, who “all celebrate homosexuality.”

Last year, when talking with VCY America, LaBarbera called for the impeachment of the “dictator” Barack Obama for his “blasphemous” “celebration of homosexuality.”

Yesterday, LaBarbera added that the “homosexual so-called marriage movement is evil.”

“We need to do what Reagan did with communism,” LaBarbera told his VCY host. “We need to come right out there and say: this movement attaching the God-ordained good of marriage to an abomination which is homosexuality, calling that marriage, that’s evil, it’s an evil movement.”

“The homosexual so-called marriage movement has become a huge platform to corrupt children. Every time there’s a public display of homosexual so-called marriage, it’s telling the kids it really is marriage, that one day, if they’re a boy, they can grow up to marry a guy someday. It’s a corrupting message, it corrupts the minds and the souls of young children.”

The real tragedy here is that this nut job has an audience.

Nope. The illiterate, blood thirsty, mentally diseased, rabid, waste of life, soulless, Nazi parasite Peter LaBarbaric who is more grotesque than a pile of elephant shit being allowed out in public among civilized human beings is the REAL tragedy.

Mr. LaBarbaric, your hair is a tragedy. Hooray for Robin Roberts!

however notice that the comments were to a radio group which is inside the bubble along with faux neaux, it seems the bubble is getting smaller and smaller, eventually it will go the way of a pocket universe and implode not explode.

Yes! We ARE telling that little boy that one day he can grow up and marry a boy…if that's who he CHOOSES.

Moreover, Christianity merely adopted the marriage ceremony. It originally was much older and belonged to many different civilizations before the advent of Christians.

Well right back to you dude. I think that it 100% okay to tell your children its okay to be gay. It will not corrupt the mind, you know what will corrupt the mind? Hate and homophobia. That will corrupt the mind of the next generation. and when did marriage became a religious thing? It never did… I congratulate Robin in every way shape and form! All homophobic assholes like him need to manage their own life, rather than trying to manage someone elses life.

I would not favor a bill forcing churches to perform marriages, so what is is point? Civil marriage is probably not recognized by his hateful vision of God, but he doesn't prattle on about hetero civil marriage does he? Two people making a commitment to one another is a beautiful thing, and it saddens me when nasty people try to dirty that beauty.

McDanel January 4, 2014 at 4:41 pm

Plus, I'm really glad Robin has had someone to stand by her through this time. Why do haters assume a gay relationship is just about "perverted" sex?

I like the refusal to allow the word "marriage" to be used directly with the word "gay" without the "quotes" around "the word" or adding "so-called", as in their writing "… heterosexual marriage …" is okay (no quotes on the word "marriage"), but they say "…the homosexual so-called marriage …" or "… gay "marriage" …" because they cannot accept anything but their man-woman paradigm as a "marriage" — their loss.

… and all those divorced couples who have so-called "marriages" are also living in SIN according to more than one "church" (I love so-called "quote" marks now!)! (… and excla!mat!on po!nts, too!)

Oh, they say not a word about the SIN of divorce and so-called-re-"marriage"?!?

These so-called "bible"-purists are such hypocrites.
