I write this not to professional homosexuals. That is to say, not to members of the well-funded, politically powerful homosexual activist lobby. They will mock and reject my words outright. They will twist and misrepresent what I say to further their own socio-political agenda. That’s fine. It’s to be expected. It merits little more than a yawn and an eye roll.
Instead, I write this to my fellow travelers in life – average, ordinary people, male and female, young and old – who happen to call themselves “gay.” I write this out of obedience to God.
It is my hope and prayer that you will consider what I have to say and take it at face value. My intentions are pure and my motives upright. If I can plant the seed of truth in just one person, and that seed begins to sprout, then I consider this letter a success.
I pray that you are that person.
What I write may offend you. It may even infuriate you. But I hope it makes you think. Know this: Your friends have lied to you. Christians do not hate you. We love you intensely. We love you because of who you are, not because of what you do or because of who you think you are.
Bear in mind that this is the same Matt Barber who said the following:
Same-sex families are basically evil:
Gays push pedophilia:
Gay adoption is tragic:
It only goes to show that not only is Matt Barber a hypocrite but he is also a dumb hypocrite. Either that or his hatred towards the gay community has him thinking that we are not sexually disordered but we are also mentally disordered so much we won't think of googling his name to see whether his deeds match his words.
Don't get me wrong. I like Matt Barber. He is good for our equality struggle. Whenever someone needs a perfect example of the naked hypocrisy of the religious right, I point him out as a shining example.
It amazes me that this man, who has spent an disorderly large amount of his professional life lying on, defaming, and dehumanizing the lgbt community, has the nerve to come to us with talk of love, Jesus, and holy righteousness.
I have a two questions for Matt.
Have you lost your damn mind? Or better yet, just how stupid do you think we of the lgbtq community are?
You really expect us to listen to your phony words when we have been made unfortunate targets of your real words and your vindictive attacks? How can you talk about Christian love and morality to us after all you have done to bear false witness against us continuously and without apology?
You don't throw rocks at someone and then come to them holding your hand out in a false mea culpa.
And since you are so interested in talking about Jesus, remember what He said in Matthew 7-5:
You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye.
Matt, that beam in your eye is so huge and thick that it could up the roof of Madison Square Garden on its own without any help. It's a wonder how you can see out of both of your eyes.
Or maybe the words you spout just goes to prove that you can't see as much as you think you can.
