Rev. Darryl L. Foster has about as much understanding of the American legal system as he does human sexuality. Last week on Peter LaBarbera’s Americans For Truth About Homosexuality Radio Hour, the ex-gay activist argued columnist Dan Savage should be arrested because he tells LGBT kids things will “get better” when they get older.
It’s really indicative of the character of these individuals… Dan Savage, is also the creator of the so-called anti-bullying It Gets Better charade. You know, homosexual kids are still killing themselves after believing his message. I think he—personally—I think he should be arrested for propagating this lie to—for these kids to have this false promise without any sort of information on what is ‘it’ anyway? It’s really so vile to me that it disturbs me to even talk about it.
We’ve expressed our reservations with the It Gets Better project—how it presumes all LGBT youth will move away, go to college and live in big cities—but we still think its a noble effort. Even if it wasn’t, though, it’s not a crime to propagate unrealistic expectations. If it was, Foster, LaBarbera and everyone at Americans For Truth About Homosexuality would be rotting away in San Quentin.
