The ‘Bottom’ Line: Behavior IS the Issue and Sodomy Is Disgusting

There is no dignity in practicing perversion

By Peter LaBarbera

Folks, I e-mail back-and-forth frequently with “Gerald,” a committed critic of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality. Below, Gerald reacts to our piece, reprinted from the Urban Dictionary, on the definition of “Power Bottom” (yuck). Per the usual, AFTAH received the kill the messenger (or maybe mock the messenger) treatment from “gay” apologists like Jeremy Hooper, a New York City blogger. The poor homosexual activists, their minds reprobate and sold out to sexual sin, can’t understand our purpose: to expose the real (destructive and wicked) behaviors associated with homosexuality lifestyles (and yes, there are many different lifestyles, not one “gay lifestyle”).

We post items like this because the public discussion about homosexuality has moved so far away from the actual behaviors associated with homosexuality. We’re trying to bring people back to the reality of what we oppose — and away from euphemistic abstractions (e.g., “gay civil rights” and “marriage  equality”). Try this, painful as it is: go back and read the “‘Power Bottom’ Defined” post and see if you don’t gain a better understanding of why God through His Word pronounces homosexual acts “detestable.” See if you don’t perceive homosexuality as more about “human wrongs” than “human rights.” Only a person committed to practicing or justifying deviance, or a zealous libertine, can’t see it. (And yes, we also oppose heterosexual anal “sex” — and lesbian-lesbian simulated anal “sex”: there’s not much to be said for imitating male homosexual sodomy, a causative factor for HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases.)

OK, I can already hear the Tolerance Robots (self-righteous judgers all) with their inane, catchall denunciations of our judgment (agreeing with God’s) against deviant behavior. Their formula, spoken with a fundamentalist’s certitude, is pretty simple: “Well, being a Power Bottom is not my cup of tea, but who am I to judge? If you don’t want to be a Power Bottom, fine, but how dare you judge others. Haven’t you read in your Bible, ‘Judge not lest you be judged’?!” Oy vey.

Every human being, lovingly made in the image of God, has dignity. But there is no dignity in practicing perversion, and the bad behaviors associated with “proud” homosexuality — be they men glorying in same-sex sodomies (what the CDC calls “men who have sex with men”) or two lesbians becoming “mommies” through artificial insemination in some pitiable attempt to mimic natural motherhood — are wrong. The homosexual activists’ guilt is compounded when groups like the Human Rights Campaign justify their Human Wrongs by preposterously claiming that their homosexuality is a “gift from God.”

Please pray for Gerald, and Jeremy, that they would humble themselves and leave behind their errant “gay pride.” — Peter LaBarbera,


Here’s my response to Gerald, with his note beneath mine:

Sodomy is disgusting, and dangerous, Gerald. Objectively disordered, as the Catholic Church says. Deal with it. You need to repent to God and turn your life around. I’m sorry, but that’s the “God’s honest truth.”–pl, 3-11-09

The following message was sent from the Americans for Truth Web site:

Oh and Peter — what I actually do in bed is NONE of your business or anybody else\’s for that matter. But when it comes to committing myself to my partner and building a life together – that IS important – and a matter of civil rights.


Here are two subsequent e-mails from Gerald, today (responding to my “sodomy is disgusting” note). I don’t know about his statistics but highly doubt his 38 percent figure for heterosexual anal sex. Note his return to ad hominem insults and the standard “gay” shellfish argument. For a good refutation of that, go to Prof. Rob Gagnon’s website.– pl:

Peter – there is something wrong with you psychologically.

I think religious fanaticism is disgusting.

Sodomy? What is that? Oral sex? Yes – according to your ancient religious text. Does that mean that 90% of heterosexuals need to repent or face hell? What about the 38% of heterosexuals that engage in anal intercourse?

Are you going to hell Peter for eating shellfish? Or touching pigskin?

Peter – you are a religious nut.
