Presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s losing friends. Anti-gay activist Peter LaBarbera called on pro-family organizations to rescind Romney endorsements.
Apparently LaBarbera objects Romney’s recent appearance on NBC’s Meet The Press, during which the Republican said state-based gay laws “make more sense” than a federal law.
LaBarbera took this soft line to mean Mitt supports the “gay agenda”:
Mitt Romney’s Christmas present to the homosexual lobby disqualifies him as a pro-family leader. Laws that treat homosexuality as a civil right are being used to promote homosexual ‘marriage,’ same-sex adoption and pro-homosexuality indoctrination of schoolchildren. These same laws pose a direct threat to the freedom of faith-minded citizens and organizations to act on their religious belief that homosexual behavior is wrong.
See, Mitt? That’s what you get when you try to play both for both teams.
LaBarbera is clearly insane. Why does anyone care what he has to say?
For years in the 1990s this crazy man stood on the center island of Park Avenue at 47th Street with a Bible in his hand screaming at the top of his lungs. I think he may have been LaBarbera’s Father.
It’s a Goldilocks-Three Bears dilemma for Mitt. How much pandering is “just right” to win?
Mr LaBarbera just HAS to take this position regarding Mitt Romney. He has to consistantly hate gays and lesbians to keep the money rolling in. His end of 2007 homophobic hook to his followers was the horror of Speaker of the House calling on God Almighty to bless the HRC. What horror! Please send in big bucks to fight such nightmares!
So you see, Pete just has to maintain a consistant level of homophobic hate no matter where he sees the smallest drop of the smallest dab of respect for any gay or lesbian person or relationship … even a “civil union” at on the state level. If he lets up for even a moment, he may lose his financial footing.
