A slap on the hand, a sign of the times

Rentboy verdict (Jeffrey Hurant)In light of society's downward moral spiral, the sentence handed down in a New York courtroom yesterday to the creator of a "gay" prostitution website makes logical sense. That's the opinion of a longtime culture warrior who exposes the truth about homosexuality.

Jeffrey Hurant (pictured to the right, after leaving court) created Rentboy.com in New York about 20 years ago as an "escort service" for homosexual men. Over the years, the venture netted him millions of dollars. But in 2016 he was charged on multiple counts of prostitution, conspiracy, and money laundering – and he pleaded guilty last October to two of the charges. On Wednesday, he was sentenced to six months in prison and given a $7,500 fine, after several prominent Democrats lobbied the judge to go easy on him.

Hurant defended his business, saying it "mitigated many of the dangers of sex work." In addition, his defense attorney argued that cracking down hard on Hurant would send the wrong message to the LGBT community. U.S. District Judge Margo Brodie evidently agreed:

"The very thing that is illegal – there is no question it did a lot of good," Brodie said of the website as she also announced the fine. "Almost two decades of committing a crime. That can't go unpunished .... I am convinced you started the site for a good purpose."

Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality says for years, homosexual activists have been loudly lobbying the culture to kowtow to their perverted view of sex.

LaBarbera, Peter"Gay activists for decades now have been complaining about prosecutions against public sex," he describes. "Lambda Legal, which is one of the top legal groups for homosexual activists, has a flyer out which helps men avoid prosecution when they commit public acts of indecency."

During her in-court comments, Judge Brodie noted the many positive letters sent to her on Hurant's behalf. In fact, several New York Democrats, including two members of Congress, pleaded with the judge to hand down a light sentence. Representatives Jerrold Nadler and Sean Patrick Maloney accused prosecutors of wasting time and money going after something as trivial as prostitution.

That didn't seem to surprise LaBarbera. "The Democratic Party represents half the country and it's completely given over to this revolutionary sin movement," he tells OneNewsNow.

"Our legal system has already endorsed homosexuality as a civil right; we've now blasphemed marriage by saying that two men or two women can get married – and I think the next step is to lessen punishment against sexual violations," he predicts.

But LaBarbera says as the law bends to accommodate the lowest common denominator of morality, it drags the rest of society down with it. "God is not mocked," he says, paraphrasing Galatians 6:7. "Societies that go easy on sexual morality do not last in the long run."
