The former home hate-group of “Porno Pete” Peter LaBarbera, The Illinois Family Institute (the state affiliate of the American Family Association) now led by B-list hate monger Laurie Higgins is responding to supporters who are angry that Higgin’s urged her group’s members to watch a video of Dan Savage’s “repugnant” appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher last summer.
“Why view photos from Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen? Why view photos of lynchings? Why view photos of aborted babies? Why view the photo of the young napalmed Vietnamese girl? Why view photos of animals caught in steel leg traps or baby seals bludgeoned to death? Aren’t these images shocking and obscene? I am not equating the enormity of the evil of the Holocaust and the American genocide of pre-born babies to that of the homosexuality-affirming movement. I am, rather, illuminating the necessity of occasionally viewing the evil in our midst about which humans have a remarkable capacity to delude themselves. As Christians, however, we should remain conscious of the fact that a life of unrepentant homoerotic activity will result in eternal separation from God. How do we measure the magnitude of temporal suffering relative to that of eternal suffering?”
Its amazing that Laurie Higgins and her ilk are way more obsessed with my sex life than I am.
Laurie Higgins and The Illinois Family Institute which IS an officially recognized hate group listed along side the Ku Klux Klan and Stormfront came to the defense of of Chicago’s Cardinal Francis George’s comments that the “gay liberation movement” has “morph(ed) into something like the Ku Klux Klan, demonstrating in the streets against Catholicism.
The virulent hatred many homosexual activists have for Catholic (and Protestant) orthodoxy is fully comparable to the virulent hatred that members of the KKK had. Perhaps the Trib’s editorial board should spend more time visiting some of the infamous “gay” blogs whose commenter’s regularly spew intolerant, uncivil, and vulgar hatred toward the Catholic Church.
Moi? Spew intolerant, il, and vulgar hatred? Shut the fuck up you evil dried up bitch!
Higgins in the past has compared homosexuality to Nazism, likening the German Evangelical Church’s weak response to fascism to the “American church’s failure to respond appropriately to the spread of radical, heretical, destructive views of homosexuality.” Elsewhere, Higgins has pined for the days when gays were in the closet. “There was something profoundly good for society about the prior stigmatization of homosexual practice… . [W]hen homosexuals were ‘in the closet,’ (along with fornicators, polyamorists, cross-dressers, and ‘transexuals’), they weren’t acquiring and raising children.” She’s also said that McDonald’s, because it ran a gay-friendly TV ad, is “hell bent on using its resources to promote subversive moral, social, and political views about homosexuality to our children.”
So who’s the cross burning KKK sheet wearer now?
