US: Human Rights Campaign welcomes anti-equality protesters to rally head office
US pro-equality group the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), has put up a sign to welcome anti-equality protesters, including the fiercely anti-gay Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality.
LaBarbera is expected to be leading the rally at the HRC head office in Washington DC today, and the HRC put up a sign saying “welcome Peter”, as well as saying it anticipated protesters.
The tweet used the hashtag #callitout, in reference to “anti-lgbt lies”.
Americans for Truth about Homosexuality describes itself as “dedicated to exposing the homosexual activist agenda”.

Back in April, LaBarbera spoke out against the Boy Scouts of America’s (BSA) announcement that it might lift its ban on gay members, but retain its ban on gay scout leaders, to say it would be “dangerous”, and would “homosexualize” the organisation
