AFTAH’s “Porno Pete” LaBarbera Worries That Trump Might Be ‘More Dangerous’ Than Hillary

D-List anti-LGBT activist Peter LaBarbera is calling on the Religious Right to monitor President-elect Donald Trump on LGBT rights and same-sex marriages.

Speaking on Focal Point, Bryan Fischer’s American Family Association (AFA) radio program, LaBarbera, president of the small anti-gay group Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH), said that he was alarmed that few conservatives responded to Trump’s comments about marriage equality during a recent 60 Minutes interview. While refusing to disclose where he stands on the issue, Trump said that he was “fine” with last year’s Supreme Court finding that gay and lesbian couples have a constitutional right to marry, saying that the decision had “settled” the issue.

Said “Porno Pete”:

If Donald Trump, as a Republican, begins to promote homosexuality as a civil right and so-called gay marriage and homosexuality abroad that is actually more dangerous than Hillary [Clinton] because everyone expected Hillary to promote homosexuality just like Obama did. But when a Republican does it, then the media is able to say, ‘Oh look, the consensus in the conservative movement is gone, you can’t even resist homosexuality, you’re a fringe movement.’ So this is of immense importance and I would call on all pro-life and pro-family leaders not to look the other way if and when Trump promotes homosexuality or same-sex marriage.”

LaBarbera was originally thrilled by Trump’s presidential win saying that it was “a repudiation of the elitism that has come to surround the Democrats,” now calls  Trump to revise his estimation that the Supreme Court has “settled” the issue of homosexual “marriage” — and instead honor his pledge to America’s voters to defend natural marriage against the “shocking” 2015 Obergefell ruling.

Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.
