Conservative activist wants gay Star Trek characters to ‘cure’ their homosexuality

  • TwitterFacebookRedditEmail

Right-wing activist Peter LaBarbera has suggested that Star Trek should ‘balance’ the number of gay characters on TV by having some ‘ex-gay’ characters.

Star Trek: Discovery, which debuted last months, is the first TV show in the franchise to feature an openly gay couple onboard the starship.

Rent star Anthony Rapp plays science officer Lieutenant Paul Stamets, while Wilson Cruz plays his partner, medical officer Dr. Hugh Culber.

But Peter LaBarbera, the founder of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality, is not impressed.

Speaking on radio station VCY America, LaBarbera claimed that the media should include more characters who have cured themselves of homosexuality for balance.

He said: “The homosexual activists are never satisfied, they always want more, more, more. We have yet to see an ex-gay, a former homosexual prominently portrayed in Hollywood.

“This is more activism, and I guess all we can do is not watch Star Trek.

“I wasn’t going to watch it anyway, but certainly with this sort of propaganda. I think Americans are tired of it. They’re tired of all the political correctness, and that’s why Trump won in the first place.

“You can throw up your hands and say, I can’t do anything about it, but the other side never stops fighting. There is a battle between good and evil in this country.

“Do something… call your congressmen. We’re going to be talking about the Equality Act, very dangerous legislation from homosexual activists.
