I’m not quite sure who the named defendant would be in this lawsuit being proposed by Tea Party leader Rick Scarborough and leather photographer Porno Pete, a “class action lawsuit” against homosexuality. They’re comparing it to class action suits against tobacco companies, so if you filed a suit against the creator of homosexuality, then what would it be? Porno Pete v. God? Porno Pete v. Science?
If you can’t beat them, sue them.
At least that’s Tea Party Unity leader Rick Scarborough’s thinking, who suggested Friday that conservative activists should take a page from campaigns against Big Tobacco and file a “class action lawsuit” against homosexuality.
The far-right pastor was responding to fellow tea partier and president of Americans for Truth Peter LaBarbera, who was arguing that Fox News should tell more “stories of happy men and women who have left the homosexual lifestyle” in the same way they highlight black conservatives.
“Peter, the whole issue of a class action lawsuit, you and I have talked about this a little bit,” Scarborough said. “I just wonder if you’ve explored that, talked to anyone about it. Obviously, statistically now even the Centers for Disease Control verifies that homosexuality much more likely leads to AIDS than smoking leads to cancer.
“Yeah I think that’s great,” LaBarbera responded. “I would love to see it. 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. But we never really got the client for that.”
Yet again, who would they be suing?
Well whatever. Please pursue this lawsuit, Rick and Peter. I’m sure it will be a smashing success, for comedy.
