Sometimes you just have to have a tantrum, and when your life’s work is negated before your eyes in your own backyard, you just have to cry it out. Complain, Porno Pete, complain:
Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) will be protesting Gov. Pat Quinn’s elaborate signing ceremony for Illinois’ “gay marriage” law at the UIC Forum in Chicago today – and condemns his shameful exploitation of Abraham Lincoln to advance this immoral legislation.
Michael Sneed of the Chicago Sun-Timesreported yesterday that Gov. Quinn has shipped the desk that President Lincoln used to craft his First Inaugural Address to UIC for the homosexual “marriage” bill-signing. Quinn and other Democrats have evoked the noble Black civil rights movement and even emancipation from slavery as parallels for passage of SB 10, which legalizes same-sex “marriage.”
Said AFTAH’s LaBarbera: “It’s bad enough that homosexual extremists for years have been promoting the preposterous lie that Lincoln was ‘gay.’ Now we see his noble legacy on behalf of Black Americans appropriated by the Left to justify homosexual ‘marriage’ – which has nothing to do with civil rights and everything to do with normalizing a changeable sexual sin.
“Abe Lincoln had a great respect for the Bible as the Word of God, and he encouraged others to read it to better their lives. It is inconceivable that Lincoln would set himself against clear Scriptural truth – such as Romans 1, which condemns homosexual practice – or align himself with the bizarre notion that two people of the same sex can get ‘married.’
It’s already normal. You lose.
Complain more, Porno Pete:
“(In fact, it would be more faithful to history to picture Lincoln coming up with a good joke – even a saucy one — illustrating the folly of homosexuality-based ‘marriage.’)
Find me an example of a modern day wingnut making a legitimately funny joke — about anything — and then we’ll talk about Lincoln era wingnuts making “funny jokes.”
“Homosexual practice today is as immoral as it was in days of Lincoln; as it was in the days of Washington and Jefferson before him; as it was in the days of Jesus Christ; and as sinful as it was in the days of Moses,” LaBarbera said. “Today’s ‘progressives’ have as much contempt for the history they twist to rationalize public-policy madness like ‘gay marriage’ as they do for their own religious professions, which they regularly defy. (Quinn, like House Speaker Mike Madigan, is a self-described Catholic; Roman Catholic teaching strongly condemns homosexual practice and Church leaders like Cardinal Francis George actively opposed the Illinois “gay marriage” bill.)
The rest of his piece is the predictable wingnut tantrum about all the terrible things that will now happen to Illinois (all of which exist only in wingnuts’ imaginations), and something something blah blah blah about how victories in the movement for love, fairness, justice, goodness, morality and equality are actually Pyrrhic victories, because Porno Pete cannot wrap his head around reality, and…
Oh here, just watch this YouTube clip. It’s basically the same as clicking on Porno Pete’s link.
