Peter LaBarbera redefines willful stupidity with his latest piece on gay conversion therapy
Yesterday, we reported that the LGBT community and religious leaders joined forces in San Diego to protest a gay conversion therapy conference taking place this weekend.
Conversion therapy is psychological treatment or spiritual counseling designed to change a person’s sexual orientation from homosexual to heterosexual. Treatments in the past have included chemical castration, hormonal therapy, electroshock therapy, the use of nausea-inducing drugs and masturbatory reconditioning.
Writing for Lifesite, particularly unpleasant fake Christian Peter LaBarbera has argued that by protesting an event promoting the literal torture of LGBT teens, gay people are showing a complete lack of tolerance.
many LGBTQ activists have zero “respect” for ex-gays like Paulk and RHN Board Member Stephen Black and ex-transgenders (like Walt Heyer), and so they feel no obligation to defend their right to speak. Instead, they ridicule them and pressure the media to deny them a public voice.
The dominant media stokes this arrogance by ignoring successful ex-gays and putting out “news” stories that read like they could have been written by the staff over at GLAAD, an anti-Christian LGBTQ media pressure group.
It’s all part of the disturbing trend nationally by which those on the Left justify shutting down conservative speech they dislike under the guise of “protecting the planet” or protecting victims from “violence”– ironic indeed, since it is the Left that increasingly is carrying out or fomenting violence across America (even against Republican Congressmen).
