VIRGINIA: Anti-Gay Christianists Hold Conference On How To Hate More

Many of the anti-gay asshats regularly covered here on JMG were gathered at Liberty University this weekend for a strategizing session titled "The Awakening."
For the panelists, the biggest “gay threat” is not just over Christian ideology but over national security. Matt Barber, the panel’s moderator and a dean at Liberty University, said he served in the military for 12 years. Barber made a case that promoting gays in the military presents a national threat because most gay military men will be more focused on their attraction to other men than on their military duties, saying it comes down to the soldier who “has your back or the one who wants to rub it.” He also brought up the argument that the high rate of HIV and AIDS in the gay community presents a health risk when it comes to battlefield transfusions. “Homosexuality is the greatest threat to the criminalization of Christianity,” said Robert Knight, executive director for the American Civil Rights Union and a former editor of the Los Angeles Times.
In the clip below, anti-gay activist Ryan Sorba urges attendees to stop using the word "gay."
