    Matt Barber

    -- Associate Dean at Liberty University School of Law

    -- One of the most visible spokespeople for the Liberty Counsel



    Facts

    -- Has said that gay male relationships constitute "one man violently cramming his penis into another man’s lower intestine and calling it ‘love’”

    -- Has called President Barack Obama an "anti-American" "enemy" who is "determined to destroy America"

    -- Says 2012 election results (President Obama, marriage victories, etc.) have invited God's wrath from which we may never be saved

    -- Of a lesbian couple's parental decisions for their transgender child, said: "We shouldn't be surprised that we see this kind of child abuse and brainwashing when we allow children to be placed intentionally in motherless or fatherless homes that model disordered sexual behavior and push the false notion that human sexuality is somehow androgynous," adding that the kid is "the poster child against the unconscionable practice of legalized so-called 'gay adoption.'"

    -- Says tolerance is a "cancer that brings down societies" before linking same-sex marriages to Noah's Ark and the Great Flood

    -- Routinely uses words like "purveyors of evil" or "satanic" (1:19 in video clip) to refer to his political opponents

    -- Said Ellen DeGeneres "guides her many adoring housewife fans into rebellion against God's divine and explicit natural order"

    -- Claims that by supporting LGBT viewers, media outlets are trying "to make the absurd appear reasonable and normal" (0:46 - 0:51)

    -- Says gays make up violence "as a Trojan Horse to force, to compel nations and individuals and groups and churches that embrace traditional values, relative to sexual behavior, to push them into the closet and say ‘no, no, you have to adopt a full affirmation of these perversions.’"

    -- Says gay rights presents a "clear and present danger" and "internationally the greatest threat" (58:27-59:00)

    -- Defends comparing bans on murder to bans on homosexuality: "If we cannot have laws prohibiting forms of sexual behavior, or that at least don't elevate and recognize forms of sexual behavior that have historically been considered immoral, then the law means nothing"

    -- Equates gay people's marriages with theoretical man-on-house-plant unions: "There are common-sense restrictions that are placed on the institution of marriage that we all must adhere to," Barber notes. "For instance, an adult cannot marry a minor child; a person cannot marry somebody who is too close to them from a familial standpoint; people cannot marry their house plant."

    --Says the pro-LGBT President Obama is "an arrogant POTUS in rebellion against God"

    -- Says LGBT activists "use" gay kids: "If you feel such despair, know this: it is not 'homophobia' causing it, as adult enablers might tell you, but, rather, it is the sin itself that causes it (or struggling alone, absent Christ, with the temptation to sin). You are being used. Adult homosexual activists with a political agenda are using you as a pawn to achieve selfish goals in a dangerous political game. You’re just a means to an end. They may have convinced themselves otherwise, but they don’t care about you. They don’t love you. They can’t. Their version of 'love' is built on lies. It’s devoid of truth. Love without truth is hate. If you continue down this wide, empty path, make no mistake: it will not 'get better.' It gets much, much worse."

    Behold our RJ conservaposse. Fear of pro-gay US Democrats and support for anti-gay, fear-mongering Republicans is mostly what they post here.
