September 25th, 2016

A Republican Party first in pro-homosexual/-transgender outreach — Party of family values?

Sodomy Shirts — Brought to You by the RNC: “LGBTQ for Trump” t-shirts are being sold online as a joint project of Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., and the Republican National Committee.

And to see a video of Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson supporting homosexual “marriage,” go HERE.

There are many Republicans in high places who are trying to remold the GOP into a “gay”-affirming party–sort of a “Democrat-lite” party on homosexuality and transgenderism. Donald Trump could be their ticket: the liberal New York Times reports that Trump’s accepting views on homosexuality set him apart from past GOP standard bearers.

So we were not shocked to learn that the Republican National Committee (RNC) is joining with Donald Trump to market “LGBTQ for Trump” t-shirts. Trump and the RNC are calling his “gay”-rainbow apparel “Trump Pride Men’s Tees.” The move comes after Trump shocked social conservatives by giving a primetime speaking spot at the Republican National Convention to homosexual businessman and “gay” advocate Peter Thiel.

In another development, the Trump campaign announced that its child care plan will cover homosexuals. The proposal would provide a series of government benefits and incentives for parents using child care, including tax deductions for child care expenses and a requirement that employers offer six weeks of paid maternity leave.

Mat Staver: ACLU Files Hail Mary Request for Attorney’s Fees on Kim Davis Case

September 24th, 2016
Kim Davis.

Kim Davis.

The following is a September 20, 2016 press release from Liberty Counsel:

ASHLAND, KY – The ACLU has filed yesterday a “Hail Mary” request for attorney’s fees in the case of Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis, who won her fight for religious freedom after a federal judge issued an order dismissing all three 2015 marriage license lawsuits against her. U.S. Judge David Bunning dismissed in their entirety, Miller v. Davis, Ermold v. Davis and Yates v. Davis, which brought to an end the trial proceedings against her arising from the 2015 Obergefell decision. At the request of Liberty Counsel on behalf of Kim Davis, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals had previously dismissed the pending appeals.

Despite the ACLU’s attempt to continue the case against Kim Davis and assess damages against her, the federal district court dismissed the case, closed the files and ordered all the pending cases to be removed from the docket.

Et tu, Newt? AFTAH Chides Gingrich for Speaking at Homosexual ‘Log Cabin Republicans’ Dinner-Fundraiser

September 23rd, 2016

twitter_gingrich_log_cabin_republicans_dinner_9-28-16

By Peter LaBarbera

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is scheduled to speak at the annual fundraising dinner for the Log Cabin Republicans (LCR) this Wednesday, September 28. LCR has a long history of promoting homosexualism in the GOP and opposing most of the pro-family planks on “gay” issues that Gingrich supports.

LCR supports homosexual “marriage” and strongly opposes a federal constitutional amendment preserving marriage as between a man and a woman. On July 12, just after the GOP Platform Committee passed a conservative, pro-family platform, LCR president Gregory Angelo sent out a press release/money pitch blasting the Committee:

“There’s no way to sugar-coat this: I’m mad as hell — and I know you are, too.

“Moments ago, the Republican Party passed the most anti-LGBT Platform in the Party’s 162-year history.

“Opposition to marriage equality, nonsense about bathrooms, an endorsement of the debunked psychological practice of “pray the gay away” — it’s all in there.”

I will translate Angelo’s “gay”-activist-speak: he’s furious that the GOP:

  1. opposes homosexuality-based “marriage”;
  2. opposes men who live as “women” using public women’s restrooms inhabited by ladies and girls (note that many cross-dressing men, like this Idaho “transgender” miscreant voyeur with a video camera, still say they are sexually attracted to females); and
  3. opposes laws banning sex-confused minors (including victims of child sexual abuse) from seeking pro-heterosexual-change therapy. (Note Angelo’s “pray away the gay” mockery of Christians who seek God’s help in overcoming the sinful pull of homosexuality; I assume here that most Republicans still support the notion that God answers prayers and helps people overcome besetting sins.)

Surely, Newt Gingrich agrees with those three GOP Platform points that made Angelo “mad as hell”–yet Gingrich is lending his conservative name to Angelo’s socially-left LGBT Republican organization that mocks Bible-believing Christians. Why?

VIDEO: Paul Lopez – Ex-‘Transwoman’ – Detransitioning ‘Lynna’ and Reclaiming His Male Self – ‘New Life, New Look’

September 22nd, 2016

This amazing couple is returning to their God-given male and female identities after years of trying to “transition” to the opposite sex

“Life isn’t about me, it’s about others.” — Paul Lopez, “detransitioning” ex-transsexual

paul_lopez_as_lynna_with_partner_gender_dysforia

From Lies to Truth: Paul Lopez in his old, gender-confused life as “Lynna” (left) with Maritza Cummings (then calling herself “Mark”), back in 2015 before they each began “detransitioning”–i.e., reversing their unnatural “gender transitions” to return to their God-given biological sex. See the 2015 video here. To read the uplifting story of ex-“transman” Maritza, who is detransitioning back to her natural female self, go here. Paul and Maritza are married. And watch the video below to see where Paul is today in his healthy transformation.

[Click here to go straight to video below]

Dear Readers,

I was so touched watching this YouTube video (h/t Daniel Erline) of “detransitioning” Paul Lopez cleaning out his apartment of all the female clothes and wigs worn by his former, false “transwoman” self, “Lynna.” Paul and his wife, Maritza Cummings–a former female-to-male “transgender” activist who is also detransitioning–have drawn the attention of the “gay” press for coming out against the gender-transitioning process. [See this 2014 article about Maritza in the homosexual magazine The Advocate when she still was going by the name Mark Angelo Cummings.]

Embracing unnatural “gender identities” is all the rage these days — especially since the media/pop culture frenzy over Bruce (“Caitlyn”) Jenner. Political correctness has overtaken reason as societal elites recklessly promote gender confusion (rebellion) and body-disfiguring hormone therapies and surgeries–like healthy breast removal–even to impressionable teens and young adults. They’re even using drugs to “suppress puberty” for pre-teens so the child can “explore the gender identity he or she feels is the correct one”! Utter madness.

What the media are definitely not inclined to report are the wholesome stories of ex-“trans” people like Paul and Maritza who are returning to sanity, most, it seems, with the help of God. Yes, Jesus Christ is the world’s greatest change agent, and thanks to alternative media millions of people can see how He is working in people’s lives–despite the Orwellian oppression of LGBTQ-affirming groupthink. For decades homosexual activists have loved to talk about “visibility”: “Come out, come out, wherever you are!” was one “gay” activist slogan. But now that tactic is boomeranging on them as people come out of false, disordered and self-obsessed LGBTQ identities.

Believe me, the last thing Big Gay/Big Trans Inc activists like GLAAD want is this kind of visibility: the return to normalcy.  (Rule for the Left: all “coming out” stories are good–except when people come out of homosexual and transsexual deviance.)

Note Paul’s common sense observations about the difference between men’s and women’s bodies (shoe size, panties, etc.). How dare we confirm minor children–whose minds and bodies are not even fully developed–in the dangerous world of drug-induced and surgical “gender transition”! If you’re too busy to watch all 15 minutes of the video, skip ahead to around the 13:00 mark, where Paul observes that what undergirds gender transitioning is hatred of self. Check back to AFTAH as we’ll be bringing you other heart-warming stories like this in the days and months ahead. — Peter LaBarbera, Americans For Truth; @PeterLaBarbera; AFTAH Facebook Page

A Cartoon about Judging and Transgenderism – Was Creator, ‘Heteros Inspiring Pride,’ Censored by Facebook?

September 21st, 2016

Site vilified by pro-LGBT activists — for using memes to highlight leftist intolerance — disappears from Facebook

By Peter LaBarbera [@PeterLaBarbera]

Folks, here is a good and accurate cartoon meme by a site called “Heterosexuals (Heteros) Inspiring Pride” — which apparently has been kicked off of Facebook (see second graphic below). The creator(s) of this site are despised by the Left for making some cool memes like this one (click on graphics to enlarge):

 

heterosexuals_inspiring_pride_meme_judging_transenders

 

Here is what comes up when you go to the “HeterosInspiringPride” Facebook link at the bottom of the meme:

 

facebook_censors_heteros_inspiring_pride_9-21-2016

 

We’ll try to get to the bottom of this–but I suspect it is just another case of “snowflake” leftists–in this case, biased Facebook geeks–not being able to tolerate criticism and a lively debate over ideas. How naive of Heterosexuals Inspiring Pride to put a Facebook site identifier on all their compelling graphics!

What are LGBT activists and allies afraid of?

VIDEO: Hillary Clinton’s 2015 Speech at the Human Rights Campaign – World’s Most Powerful Homosexual-Transgender Lobby Group

September 21st, 2016

Hillary champions LGBTQ “Equality Act,” is friends with HRC president Chad Griffin

hillary_clinton_hrc_2015_from_youtubeFolks, homosexualism has not been a major issue in this presidential campaign–due mainly to the media’s suffocating political correctness and unprofessional pro-LGBTQ bias–and partly due to political cowardice. Nevertheless, the issue is extremely important to many millions of Americans. So it is stunning that the YouTube video below of Hillary Rodham Clinton speaking at the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) on October 3, 2015 had only received 10,759 views as of the morning of September 23, 2016.

AFTAH is covering all major presidential candidates’ positions on homosexualism and transsexualism for this election–including when Republicans embrace or ignore the “gay” or “trans” agenda. (Some GOP political types hate us for that.) [See Hillary’s campaign partner Tim Kaine’s HRC speech HERE and Donald Trump’s past support of homosexualism HERE.] We are cleaning up the YouTube transcript of this speech and will provide that ASAP. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; @PeterLaBarbera

VCY America Interviews AFTAH’s Peter LaBarbera on Navy Naming Ship After Sexual Predator Harvey Milk – August 2016

September 20th, 2016
USS Predator? When Harvey Milk was 33, he had a sexual "relationship" with a 16- (or possibly 17-) year-old boy, Jack Galen McKinley.

USS Predator? When Harvey Milk was 33, he had a sexual “relationship” with a 16- (or possibly 17-) year-old boy, Jack Galen McKinley (right). This photo appears in the hagiography of Milk, “Mayor of Castro Street,” authored by homosexual journalist Randy Shilts. Click to enlarge.

Folks, we’re catching up on our “AFTAH in the media” posts. Here is an interview I did August 1, 2016, with the Milwaukee-based VCY America’sCrosstalk,” hosted by Jim Schneider. Below is a rundown of the program provide by Crosstalk, which continues beneath the MP3 link. Note that this discussion occurred prior to the Navy following through and formally naming a “Cruiser” ship after assassinated homosexual activist Harvey Milk:

LGBT Movement Announces Goals

Posted on August 1st, 2016

Date: August 1, 2016

Host: Jim Schneider

Guest: Peter LaBarbera

Listen: MP3 | Order from VCY America here

Peter LaBarbera is the founder and president of Americans for Truth.

Last Friday news came forth that the U.S. Navy is planning on naming a ship after LGBT activist Harvey Milk.

Who was Harvey Milk? According to a source cited by Peter, as a 33 year old man, Milk appears to have been involved in a sexual relationship with an under age boy. Peter noted that while not the first open homosexual to be elected to public office, he was the first to mobilize the so-called, gay constituency. This makes Milk the first “gay” power politician elected as a city supervisor in San Francisco.

Listen here:

 

Pederastic Postage? Under Obama, the US Postal Service placed Harvey Milk on a stamp--identifying him as an American icon and hero. This despite the sex-obsessed Milk's record of lying, predatory behavior, and anti-Christian rhetoric.

Pederastic Postage? Under Obama, the US Postal Service placed Harvey Milk on a stamp–identifying him as an American icon and hero. This despite the sex-obsessed Milk’s record of lying, predatory behavior, and anti-Christian rhetoric.

Milk was killed when someone went after the mayor and Milk was also in the government building. Due to his death, Milk has received near martyr status among homosexual activists. This led to a Harvey Milk Day in California, students are being taught about him as he’s treated as a civil rights hero and now we have a U.S. Navy ship about to be named after him.

Peter went on to explain that Milk himself was in the Navy. At that time he tried to seduce sailors into sodomy in his San Diego apartment. So if the Navy names a ship after him, Peter feels they’ll be naming it after a sexual predator.

During the recent Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia there was a global LGBT summit that took place. Jim noted that the Daily Signal reported that more than 25 prominent leaders of the national LGBT movement gathered for this 4 day event called, The Equality Forum.

The forum sought to establish four goals and Peter commented on them:

  1. Pass the Equality Act. This act would say that rights based upon homosexuality and gender confusion would take precedent over religious freedom. Peter indicated that the way it’s written right now, it explicitly negates the Religious Freedom Restoration Act as applied to homosexuality.
  2. Defeat state and local laws. The biggest threat that LGBT leaders claim to face is what they call anti-LGBT legislation proposed by conservatives in state and local government.
  3. Going to court. The summit panelists said they have their eyes set on a number of court cases that they believe could impact the future of the agenda of their movement.
  4. Partnering with Black Lives Matter and others. Peter noted that the Black Lives Matter movement is very pro-homosexual in their platform. This is important as he described the homosexual movement as being basically a leftist movement.

Interestingly, PayPal founder Peter Thiel, who’s described as proudly gay, spoke at the Republican National Convention. According to Peter LaBarbera, Thiel mocked the culture war and mocked those who are fighting transgender rights.

When you review this Crosstalk broadcast, there will be much more to hear on this issue, including comments from listeners.

Linda Harvey on CDC Report – Who Will Rescue America’s Endangered Teen Homosexuals?

September 19th, 2016
Linda Harvey of Mission America is a leading Christian, pro-family expert warning on the destructive impact of homosexualism and transsexualism on America's youth.

Linda Harvey of Mission America and WND.com is a leading Christian, pro-family expert warning of the destructive impact of homosexualism and transsexualism on America’s youth. She is the keynote speaker at the AFTAH banquet October 28. See details here.

Folks, we are delighted to have Linda Harvey of Mission America and WND.com as the keynote speaker at our upcoming annual Chicago dinner-banquet, on Friday, October 28 at Grace Gospel Fellowship Church in Bensenville, Illinois (full details here). For decades Linda has worked to educate Americans about incredibly risky LGBTQ lifestyles–which are now being pushed on young people like never before. Below is more evidence of that–yet our government, as always, blames “stigma” and “homophobia” rather than immoral, destructive homosexual behavior itself. You won’t want to miss Linda’s presentation Oct. 28. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH

Who Will Rescue America’s Endangered Teen Homosexuals?

By Linda Harvey; this column first appeared in WND.com, 8/23/2016

Homosexuality is harmful to children and other living things.

A new federal Centers for Disease Control (CDC) survey provides the jaw-dropping evidence. But the Left is busy blaming conservatives and everything but the obvious.

Why are young bodies built for heterosexuality engaging in the sexual equivalent of anorexia, defying anatomy and a positive, healthy future?

Here’s an analogy. In a family with suspected child abuse, what should be done?

Friends, neighbors, teachers might see the sad outcomes in the lives of this family’s children who skip school, act depressed, exhibit aggression toward peers and start self-destructive behaviors like eating disorders, cutting, or substance abuse.

What if the abusive parents were never investigated, but instead other possible explanations were accepted by authorities? Mean classmates, poor nutrition, or maybe … Republicans?

The most extensive report to date revealing the daily activities of homosexually identified teens, ridiculously called “sexual minorities” by the Centers for Disease Control, is exactly this frustrating and heartbreaking. These adolescents no more qualify as “minorities” than kids who eat junk food.
