Fringe Factor: End Homosexuality With a Class Action Lawsuit

Fringe factor: Sue homosexualsEnough attempting to suppress homosexuality by banning gay marriage from state to state. Tea Party leader Rick Scarborough is focused on the bigger picture. At a Tea Party Unity gathering on Thursday, Scarborough chatted with Americans for Truth About Homosexuality President Peter LaBarbera about his grand scheme for taking on the homosexuality lobby with a class action lawsuit like the one pursued against the major tobacco companies.

“The whole issue of a class action lawsuit, you and I have talked about this a little bit,” Scarborough said. “Obviously, statistically now even the Centers for Disease Control verifies homosexuality more likely to lead to AIDS than smoking leads to cancer.

And yet the entire nation has rejected smoking, billions of dollars are put into a trust fund to help cancer victims and the tobacco industry was held accountable for that.” His argument doesn’t really stand up to the facts, as The Huffington Post points out: the CDC reported in 2008 that “more deaths are caused each year by tobacco use than by human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) illegal drug use, alcohol use, motor vehicle injuries, suicides, and murders combined.” But who can keep track? At least LaBarbera agreed with Scarborough’s suggestion and said he’d “love to see” a class action lawsuit against…gays?

“We always wanted to see one of the kid in high school who was counseled by the official school counselor to just be gay, then he comes down with HIV,” said LaBarbera, because one thing inevitably leads to the other. “But we never really got the client for that.” And another thing! LaBarbera would like to see more stories about “ex-gays” on Fox News. “We need to work on our conservative, alternate media and say, ‘Look, don’t do the pro-gay thing, why don’t you rather step out and support these ‘ex-gays’? We should encourage Fox News to tell their stories,” he said.
