“You’re leaving? Are you effing kidding?” An anti-gay bigot gets humiliated

Peter LaBarbera came to my college to “expose” the “gay agenda.” He wasn’t expecting what would happen instead

Greg Russak‘s insight:

In America, and with rare (and legitimate) exceptions, everyone has the right to speak freely even when what they have to say is vile, disgusting, and hateful. We have that right.

 

Here’s the qualifier I add to that right. While everyone has a voice, not every voice is worth hearing. This is the 21st century, and if there are still gay haters in America pretending that somehow LGBTQ equality is an infringement on them, their "freedoms", or their religious beliefs then they have nothing to say worth hearing in a civil society.

 

Ignoring them – and voting against them and the politicians who won’t support equality in all its forms and measures – is the best course of action to ensure they wield precisely zero power over the rest of us.

Proud middle class husband, father, and progressive liberal. Registered Non-Partisan but have much more in common with Democrats than Republicans. Consider Libertarians to be immature and underdeveloped in their understanding of reality. An atheist who doesn't care what you believe so long as you stop pretending the Founding Fathers intended for you to legislatively force your beliefs on everyone else. Laughs out loud in mocking disdain at the abject lunacy of birthers, climate science deniers, and hard core tea partiers. If that offends you, too bad. You're not rational and have no place at the adult table.
