Porno Pete is still among the living

Porno Pete vs. Mayor Pete. Who has the demonstrably superior intellect?
Peter LaBarbera
Peter LaBarbera has been very quiet lately. In March, the Peter was doing a daily podcast. That seems to have fizzled out after eight days. The last update on the Americans for Truth website was nearly a month ago.

I kinda miss the Peter. LaBarbera has done more to foster equal rights than any pro-LGBTQ activist. Mr. LaBarbera, when he is active, provides a cartoonish caricature of the crazed, eyes-glazed-over, anti-LGBTQ Christian fanatic.

LaBarbera is still a goto for hate group, American Family Association. According to AFA's blog: No, America isn't ready, says LaBarbera. LaBarbera is referring to Pete Buttigieg claiming that America is not ready for a gay president. LaBarbera might be right but his “reasoning” is sanctimoniously porous.

As an aside, in Tuesday's New York Times, Bret Stephens, referring to Mr. Buttigieg, asks: “Wouldn’t it be nice to have a president who makes you enjoy the English language every time he speaks?” Yes it would, Mr. Stephens. Yes it would. But I digress.

Returning to Mr. LaBarbera:
"The media will pretend that a man like Peter Buttigieg kissing his so-called husband is just like a man kissing his wife," says Peter LaBarbera, founder and president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH). "But the average Joe on the street, the average American, will not believe that. And I do not believe that an openly homosexual, far-left progressive candidate like Pete Buttigieg -- I do not think the American public is ready for that."
Pete Buttigieg is hardly a “far-left progressive.” Mayor Pete is a moderate Democrat and, by the way, he is probably the most Christian of the lot (not that religiosity should make any difference). Buttigieg stands out in the debates as the most articulate and persuasive candidate. He is very analytical and his thought processes remind me of President Obama.

I do not necessarily agree with Buttigieg. However, I like the way that he frames the argument with reason.

LaBarbera has no connection to “the average Joe on the street.” Most Americans (about 70%) support same-sex marriage. Many Christian denominations, including most liturgical protestants, support same-sex marriage and will solemnize those marriages in their churches. LaBarbera is a radical, far-right, self-righteous Christian.

Later on:
Even if Buttigieg manages to win the Democratic nomination, LaBarbera believes President Trump would trounce him in the general election.
I would like to think that Peter Buttigieg's sexuality is irrelevant to American society at this point in time. I will settle on the notion that it should be irrelevant. The polls are meaningless. 2020 is all about turnout. Trump activates many voters.

LaBarbera is oblivious to realities. When it comes to morality, Mayor Pete's sexuality should be less important to conservative Christians than Donald Trump's sociopathy. Mayor Pete seem to be pretty honest. Donald Trump is a pathological liar. Mayor Pete seems to be a moral and observant Christian. Donald Trump is amoral. Mayor Pete has selflessly served the country as a naval intelligence officer. Trump has never done anything in his entire life that was not motivated by self-enrichment.

In fact, the entire Democratic field is comprised of very decent people. Trump is indecent. If Peter LaBarbera doesn't like Buttigieg then some other Democrat would be the moral choice over Trump. Preferring a sociopath makes Mr. LaBarbera amoral. But you already knew that. The man has dedicated his life to bigotry.
