Group’s Aim: Counter the Homosexual Agenda

By Tim Waldorf, published in Naperville Sun:

Naperville resident and conservative activist Peter LaBarbera is leaving his post as the Illinois Family Institute’s executive director to pursue his goal of creating a national organization dedicated to “confronting the homosexual activist agenda.”

In a few months, LaBarbera, 44, will re-launch in Naperville an organization he founded in 1996: Americans for Truth. But now AFT‘s work will be dedicated solely to issues of homosexuality.

“Homosexual, bisexual and transsexual groups spend tens of millions of dollars every year to market and normalize their aberrant lifestyles,” LaBarbera said in a statement announcing his decision. “Yet, after all these years, there is not a single, serious national group dedicated specifically to exposing and countering their agenda.”

LaBarbera said that agenda “is anything that seeks to or has the goal of normalizing homosexuality as a societal good.”

“It’s basically anything on the side that says homosexuality is really just a mere alternative lifestyle and should be divorced from moral concerns, or it’s actually a good thing,” said LaBarbera, noting he believes “gays can change.”

“We’re saying that it is a sin in the context of biblical Christianity.”
