Barber and LaBarbera Spew Hate


Matt Barber had Peter LaBarbera on his radio show, on which he declared that the Boy Scouts have “sold their soul to the devil” and that “every major institution is being corrupted by the homosexual agenda.” Oh, and gays are just like locusts who want to destroy the country. But remember, if you call them out for spewing hate, you’re being an anti-Christian bigot.

    Their common version of fundie xianity is limited and boring.

    All they do is get together and hate gay people. Or Obama once in a while for variety. It’s all negative, nothing positive, uplifting, or worthwhile in those cults.

    Who after all are barely mentioned in the bible, which is a long anthology of odds and ends.

    The big hate targets were nonJews. Ammonites, Moabites, Canaanites, Assyrians, Babylonians, Greeks, Romans, and on and on. At least sometimes they had good reasons, when one outside tribe or another conquered them.

    Well OK, don’t keep us wondering. How much did they get for their soul?

    I don’t think this is even possible. The BSA is an organization and they don’t even have souls, any more than a tree or rock. (or human).

    PS This anti gay hate thing has gotten boring to a lot of people. I don’t see why they don’t move on and find another hate target. Except that there must still be money in this particular con. Or they aren’t bright enough to think of another group to hate.

    Pagan Morals. Pagan Morals. PAGAN MORALS! He said that. He said that and wants to be taken seriously. Alright, I’ll bite. I will gladly take pagan morals if that means that people get seen equally, even if that equality stems from our fitness to be sacrificed to Baphomet. Beats having to listen to this tripe. And hey, maybe the boy scouts will learn something useful, like how sharp an athame needs to be in order to slay a seventh son of a seventh son.

    I really hate to have to keep steppin’ up to defend Ol’ Scratch, but, wtf?

    The debbil is a MASTER of manipulation in its sundry forms. Why in HELL would he buy their souls at the top of the market.?He’d do a lot better by waiting until they’re all Gaymawwiaging and becoming the ASA. At that point their souls won’t be worth a “Five ‘Our Fathers’ and five ‘Hail Marys’ penance” for absolution of their sins, nevermind a friggin’ plenary indulgence–those fuckers are expensive.

    But freehand, that just seems too easy. Incorporate, sell the company’s soul, dissolve and start over.

    It’s like wishing for infinite wishes.

    Oh gee.

    You don’t understand modern capitalism.

    You start a company. Set up 10 or more wholly owned subsidiaries. And then you sell their souls. Since it is a subsidiary, your soul is never at risk.

    Then you float an IPO, sell shares, and get listed on the NASDAQ. And pay lobbyists to rewrite the tax code so you don’t pay much in the way of taxes.
