Hate group leader Peter “Porno Pete” LaBarbera, who made his name in anti-gay wingnuttery by repeatedly posting lots of pictures taken at fetish festivals of various kinds, gay, straight and all points between, and then using those pictures to condemn the entire LGBT community, has something to say to the nation of Israel, and it’s not “Mazel Tov!”

A pro-family activist who works to expose the truth about homosexuality says it’s outrageous that the Israeli government is going out of its way to recruit “gays” and lesbians as unofficial envoys.

In what it calls a bid to boost its international image, Israel’s Ministry of Public Diplomacy and Diaspora Affairs has established a cadre of diverse volunteers to speak about Israel around the world. And on its website, the ministry is encouraging members of the homosexual community to step forward.

One spokesman says the goal is to highlight Israel’s diversity.


But Peter LaBarbera, founder and president of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality (AFTAH), sees nothing intolerant about opposing a deviant lifestyle.

“This is a very sad development because Judaism is responsible for our moral condemnation of homosexual and all deviant behaviors,” he notes. “And so for Israel now to be proclaiming itself friendly to homosexuality is a repudiation of Israel’s own heritage and the God of Israel.”

Oh GREAT Peter, blame the Jews for your own pigheaded bigotry. That’s new and different.

Though I’m quite sure Israel’s Ministry of Public Diplomacy and Diaspora Affairs breathlessly follows the articles at OneNewsNow, especially those quoting Porno Pete, I have a feeling Israel, which is miles ahead of the United States when it comes to supporting LGBT people, knows what it’s doing and really, really doesn’t need Pete’s help. I’m also quite sure they know a bit more about Judaism than Pete does.
