“Porno Pete” LaBarbera Claims Hate Crime Attack At Scott Lively Award Dinnner

Plastic bags containing bricks scrawled with messages such as “Shut down Lively” were  thrown through the windows at the Christian Liberty Academy, sometime before 8 a.m. Saturday where Scott Lively, an anti-gay speaker and author, was scheduled to speak and recieve an award  at the academy Saturday night at a dinner for the Americans for Truth Against Homosexuality (AFTAH).

An envelope in one of the bags contained a handwritten message saying, “This is just a sample of what we will do if you don’t shut down Scott Lively and AFTAH. F— Scott Lively. Quit the homophobic s”

“Porno Pete” LaBarbera, head of AFTAH, said he considered the incident to be a hate crime committed by gay activists. If this would have occurred at a gay church, there would have been a public outcry,” LaBarbera said.

Andy Thayer, co-founder of the Gay Liberation Network (GLN), said 30 people from his group and from the group Anti-Racist Action protested during Lively’s speech. He said he did not know who vandalized the academy but doubted it was the work of gay activists.

LaBarbera who spends much of his time on Twitter and trolling the the LGBT blog Joe. My. God. is well aware of the publicity stunt last week of Taylor Garrett, the “gay christian republican” GOProud member who also claims that a rock was thrown through his window. 

Just saying…..
