AFTAH’s “Porno Pete” Peter LaBarbera and Scott Lively Praise Russia’s Gay Hate Law

Peter LaBarberaSurprise, surprise!

“Porno” Pete LaBarbera and “Crimes Against Humanity- Ugandan Gay Murderer” Scott Lively have come out in support of Russians draconian anti-gay “propaganda” law.  Which by the way Lively is trying to take credit for.

Via ABC News:

“Among others commending Russia’s anti-gay efforts was Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality. “Russians do not want to follow America’s reckless and decadent promotion of gender confusion, sexual perversion, and anti-biblical ideologies to youth,” LaBarbera said on his website.

Scott Lively, a Massachusetts-based evangelical lawyer and activist, conducted a 50-city speaking tour of Russia in 2007, and says the current bill reflects policies that he advocated at the time. At the end of his tour, Lively released a “Letter to the Russian People,” and he redistributed it this month after the parliament vote. “The purpose of my visit was to bring a warning about the homosexual political movement which has done much damage to my country,” he wrote in the letter. “This is a very fast-growing social cancer that will destroy the family foundations of your society if you do not take immediate, effective action to stop it.”

But remember, please don’t call them bigots.
