Liberty Counsel Shyster J. Matt Barber: “They want us completely discredited and marginalized to the fringes of society”

J Matt Barber the Director of Cultural Affairs at the “supposed” non-profit public interest law firm The Liberty Counsel which provides free legal assistance in defense of “Christian religious liberty, the sanctity of human life, and the traditional family” is ratcheting up the propaganda to try to save itself by claiming it is indeed the victim and not the LGBT community which it persecutes.

The Liberty Counsel itself is at this time not designated as a “hate group” through the nationally recognized Southern Law Poverty but they are on SLPC’s watch-list and is one hair away from being designated and recognized as an “official” hate group alongside the Family Research Council, the Ku Klux Klan and Stormfront .

Said Barber:

“I’ve said this before and I’ll say it right now. The sexual anarchist lobby, this radical, militant lobby, wants three things in this order: they want to see those of us who hold traditional values and have a biblical view of sexual behavior and sexual morality; they want to see us behind bars. Absent that, if that doesn’t work, they want to see us discredited, our licenses, my law licenses revoked, unable to teach in schools and so forth. They want us completely discredited and marginalized to the fringes of society. Finally and included in that is the inability, they want to see people like us not able to make a living. And that’s why they’re going after these organizations and they’re using economic terrorism, for lack of a better phrase.”

In April the Liberty Counsel has been implicated and is under suspicion for helping in the kidnapping and dissaperaance of 9 year old Lisa Miller who was kidnapped by her “ex-gay” mother after in 2009 the courts awarded custody of the child to Janet Jenkins, her former partner

  1. I’m not sure who wrote this article, but be careful in your editing. I don’t think the Family Research Center is anti-gay; please differentiate between that and the Family Research Council.
