A family activist who works to expose the truth about homosexuality is taking issue with a major American dictionary's pandering to a left-wing senator regarding the term "sexual preference."
During last Tuesday's confirmation hearing of Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, Merriam-Webster's online dictionary immediately reacted to Senator Mazie Hirono's (D-HI) talking point. When Barrett used the term "sexual preference" regarding the Supreme Court's same-sex marriage decision, Hirono scolded the judge, insisting the term was "outdated and offensive."
"It is used by anti-LGBTQ activities to suggest that sexual orientation is a choice," Hirono scolded.
Almost immediately, Webster’s changed the definition of "preference" on its website to say that when "sexual" is added to "preference," the term is "offensive." The Federalist notes that internet archives confirm the change. Before Tuesday, Webster's Dictionary included a definition of "preference" as "orientation" or "sexual preference."
"What Senator Hirono is insisting upon, and now Merriam-Webster is going along with, is just semantic insanity of doing whatever the homosexual-transgender-bisexual-queer community is demanding," responds Peter LaBarbera, founder and president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH). "And this sort of semantic tyranny is out of control."
And while Democrats call Barrett's use of the term offensive, Democrats Joe Biden and Senate Judiciary Committee members Dick Durbin and Richard Blumenthal recently used the word in public settings and received no pushback. The late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who Hirono called "our champion," was also known to use the term "sexual preference."
Despite what Hirono or anyone else claims, LaBarbera points out that there is no homosexual gene.
"The reality is that everybody has a choice and control over their own sexual behavior or misbehavior," he continues. "That's the reality. That's what the sexual left and the Democrats hate. They hate the idea that people are in control over their own sexual behavior."
LaBarbera believes a Justice Barrett would help overturn the 2015 Supreme Court decision that legalized homosexual marriage.
