No condemnation for vandalism by ‘gay’ activists
by Charlie Butts
On October 15, homosexual activists, who later took credit for the attack, threw concrete bricks through the door and windows of the Christian Liberty Academy in suburban Chicago (see earlier story). The site was chosen for the attack because it hosted a fundraising banquet for Americans for Truth About Homosexuality.
AFTAH founder, Peter LaBarbera, tells OneNewsNow about the statement issued by a co-founder of the Gay Liberation Network, which he describes as a Marxist homosexual “direct action” group.
“His name is Bob Schwartz and he’s co-leader of the Gay Liberation Network,” LaBarbera says. “He said, ‘I did not and will not condemn the actions of persons who threw the brick pavers, assuming that they did so out of hatred of Lively, LaBarbera and the Christian Liberty Academy.’” Lively is a reference to Dr. Scott Lively, a featured speaker at the event.
The bricks were accompanied by a note that threatened: “This is just a sample of what we will do if you don’t shut down pro-family advocate Scott Lively and AFTAH.”
LaBarbera argues that if the vandalism had been against a homosexual group there would have been immediate media and police attention. “There’s a massive double-standard when it comes to these so-called ‘hate crimes,’” he contends. “I don’t really believe in the concept of hate crimes, but it seems that it’s mainly a political tool to help certain victims and not other politically incorrect victims, i.e. Christians.”
