Peter LaBarbera, head of the pompously (and ridiculously) named Americans for Truth, has made a staggering discovery: gay people know how to use the internet. I know, I know, this will come as a major shock to you, as it apparently did to him. He was so surprised that he marched right out and made a report about it, to alert his righteous listeners that if they go online they might catch The Gay.
Pro-family activist Peter LaBarbera devotes his efforts to monitoring the influence of the homosexual agenda on American culture. He says a recent study of social network website usage is proof that technology has been one of the primary tools used by the homosexual community to organize and to promote its immoral lifestyle.
Oh my God, no! Gay people use computers to organize with like minded people and communicate ideas to others. And LaBarbera posted a report on this to his webpage, which he uses to….organize with like minded people and communicate his ideas to others. I am shocked – shocked! – to find out that people use the internet for such nefarious purposes. But I’m sure glad Petey took the time to do a “study” to tell us that. Thanks, Petey! You’re the bestest.
The website eMarketer.com reports a recent Harris Interactive online survey of 2,500 adults (18 or older) shows more proportionate weekly use of the sites Friendster and MySpace, and more hourly time on YouTube and Craigslist. At 32 percent, nearly twice as many homosexual and transgender respondents said they were online 24-168 hours per week, compared with 18 percent of heterosexuals.
Americans for Truth president Peter LaBarbera says the article doesn’t mention one major reason for the difference in numbers. “Of course what the article doesn’t say is that it’s a big part of their illicit life,” he asserts. “That’s what the Internet has enabled. The Internet is ideally suited to help uniting people practicing deviance.”
Further clarifying his point, LaBarbera explains that technology is often at the forefront of uses for other than the moral good of society; for example, to connect people in various subcultures and even vices, such as the pornography industry. “… It’s really the same old thing with technology,” he says. “It has its good uses, but it also makes it easier for people practicing immoral behavior to organize.”
In that sense, he says homosexual individuals in society have been able to network outside of the mainstream with the powerful and efficient tool of Internet websites.
We’ll be waiting for a proposal to ban sales of computers and internet accounts to anyone who is gay or suspected of being gay. In the meantime, keep those virus scans up to date so you don’t catch The Gay.
