The Headline Is All You Need: “Blogging ‘Gays’ Urge Murder, Castration of Christians”

The sub-heading is, “Exclusive: Matt Barber spotlights threats made in response to assaults by topless lesbians.”

Okay, I know I just did a post about The Onion. I also just did a post about Todd Starnes and, effectively, faking a news story. I fully recognize that this may seem like my attempt to “punk” you, the reader. It isn’t. You can go read the WND story for yourself: “Blogging ‘Gays’ Urge Murder, Castration of Christians.”

At issue is Matt Barber, an all-’round jerk and one of the big ‘uns in the religious conservative anti-homosexuality movement. He is the spokesperson for the Liberty Council.

At issue is that a prominent gay blogger, “Joe.My.God” by Joe Jervis, wrote a quick post awhile back about an abortion rights rally in Argentina where feminists (note that feminist ≠ lesbian, though I would be surprised if many lesbians are not feminists) “spat upon and sprayed paint into the faces of Catholic men outside a cathedral.” JMG, since his blog is widely read, got a lot of comments. He does not moderate comments, but he does tend to skim them to look for clear crazies and threats, and he removes them and will look at those that readers flag.

Matt Barber apparently reads the JMG blog, and he found some comments that were, well, “unkind.” Matt Barber explained:

Jervis, who’s [sic] blog has a long history of anti-Christian extremism and violence-charged rhetoric, nonetheless permitted several of his regular posters to not only condone the feminist attacks, but to illegally call for a steep escalation in anti-Christian violence in general (up to and including church bombings, and both the castration and even murder of Christians in the U.S.).

Barber complained for several paragraphs, and then he concluded with:

Will GLADD now publicly disavow Joe Jervis for allowing (and perhaps tacitly condoning) such violent (and very likely illegal) rhetoric? Will this self-styled “anti-defamation” group rescind its “Outstanding Blog” award?

Don’t hold your breath.

Even still, a bigger question remains: Will federal authorities investigate these threats? If it were Christians threatening “gays,” Eric Holder himself would kick-in the door with MSNBC in tow. Every newspaper in America would give it above-the-fold coverage.

But it wasn’t Christians threatening “gays.” It was “gays” threatening Christians.

And that just doesn’t fit the false “gay victimhood” narrative.

Now, if one were objective and completely ignorant of World Net Daily and Matt Barber, they may think this is a little blown out of proportion, but it is still uncalled for on the part of the Bad Gayz. That is, of course, if one is ignorant of WND and Matt Barber. If you read this blog, you are not. If you read JMG, then perhaps you say the next paragraph in the story:

The almost-hilarious hypocrisy here, of course, is that anybody who has EVER endured five minutes on WND knows that they not only allow their own commenters to advocate for the death penalty for homosexuals and that they cheer on violent anti-gay hate crimes, WND columnists themselves have called for executing people who oppose the Christianist agenda, as, for example, when WND’s Erik Rush did last year when he declared that journalists should be executed after Mitt Romney won the election. Erik Rush: “Trials for treason and the requisite sentences would apply, and I would have no qualms about seeing such sentences executed, no matter how severe.” Earlier this year WND’s Erik Rush declared that all Muslims should be murdered and underscored that sentiment with this tweet: “Yes, they’re evil. Kill them all.” And just last week WND’s Erik Rush called for the execution of the president of the United States.

Yeah. Hypocrisy? I think so. Cognitive dissonance even? Perhaps.

Being responsible, Joe took down the original blog post so that the offensive comments would not be there. Thus, really, doing what Matt wanted in the first place and censoring them. Which, of course, Matt complained about:

UPDATE: Barber is pissed that I’ve blocked his link by taking down my post. Needless to say, if my post was still up, he’d be tweeting “Militant gay refuses to take down post.” SNORK!

(By the way, all those quotes and images are from the JMG story about this.)

Joe, on his post about this, at this time has 415 comments. “Oscarlating Wildely” has the top-rated comment with 135 up-votes and 0 down-votes:

If Mr. Barber wants a quotation, he is welcome to quote me:

Dear Sir,

Bite me.

With love,
One of the thousands of Queers that you and your ilk attempt to frighten, bully, intimidate, and harass into solitude, suicide, and back into the closet. We’re not going anywhere, Matt.

Oh, and by the way, we’re winning.

Matt Barber’s column on WND has gotten 51 ratings (2.57/5 average). It has gotten only 210 comments — while that’s a lot relative to the recent posts I’ve done, that’s just over half as many as Joe got on his post. And, the top-rated only has 11 up-votes and 0 down-votes, and it’s by “Deborahreed”: “It is truly a barbaric society that slaughters its unborn children and profanes the act designed to create them. As the culture of our country, and the world, descends into darkness and chaos, the separating of sheep and goats is accelerating. “Test everything. Hold onto the good. Avoid every kind of evil.” 1 Thessalonians 5: 21-22″ Fairly vague, but I’m assuming she is talking about a general moral decline because of The Gay.

Because of the huge amount of coverage on Joe’s blog, many of the normal WND readers’ comments got into a voting war and were down-voted. Many of the more highly rated comments are actually pro-equality rather than not, though here’s a taste of the more highly rated anti-gay ones, by “rationalist”, with 11 up and 2 down votes:

Here’s what the gay rights agenda is really about…

Demanding tolerance gave way to demanding recognition which gave way to demanding equality which is now giving way to demanding superiority.

So much for the Stonewall excuse that all they wanted was to be “left alone”…

Gay fascists won’t be satisfied until they’ve silenced every opposition – especially true born again Bible believing Christians…

Examine evidence where Christianity is being intimidated through bullying, threats, intimidation, laws or lawsuits – Christian business owners who are approached by gay couples trying to force them into compromising their beliefs and then suing them when they won’t…gays picketing churches who’s ministers preach that homosexuality is a sin – does that sound like “tolerance” ?

It’s happening more and more – so it’s not just about marriage equality anymore –

it’s about eradicating any ideology that disagrees with homosexuality.

1 Corinthians 6:9-10: “Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.”

Gotta love how they seem to need to quote Bible verses in order to make their point.

Edited to Add (December 19, 2013): I had this in my queue, but in the wrong place, so here’s another post on JMG that shows Matt Barber posting the story “across Teabagistan” and that Joe is “still waiting on that visit from Eric Holder.”
