AFTAH Interview with Chaplain Gordon Klingenschmitt – Part One

Wednesday, December 29th, 2010

"Chaps" Klingenschmitt

This interview with Gordon James “Chaps” Klingenschmitt [click HERE to listen] was pre-taped and aired Christmas day, 2010. Chaps is founder of the “Pray in Jesus’ Name Project,” named after his much-publicized struggle to pray in Jesus’ name in public and without restrictions as a U.S. Navy Chaplain — which cost him his career in the service. Chaps, a graduate of the Air Force Academy, discusses his work reaching men and women for Christ in the Navy — including an “exorcism” involving a woman who overcame lesbianism. AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera commends Klingenschmitt for his yeoman’s work in mobilizing tens of thousands of Americans to fight the Democrat-led, lame-duck congressional effort to repeal the ban on homosexuals in the military. Chaps discusses God’s view of homosexuality as sin, and says his biggest disappointment among Senate Republicans who joined the Democrats in ending the homosexual ban was Mark Kirk — the new Illinois Senator who quickly alienated conservatives in his own state by voting for the repeal. Part Two of this interview will air in January.

Obama’s Attitudes on Homosexual ‘Marriage’ ‘Evolving’ — God’s Remain the Same

Wednesday, December 29th, 2010

AFTAH in the news: Obama “man without a biblical conscience”

President Obama talks with The Advocate, a magazine for homosexuals.

By Peter LaBarbera

It’s the Christmas holiday — the perfect time for President Obama and his veep, Joe Biden, to move closer toward the embrace of so-called “marriage” based on an unnatural sexual sin, right? Nothing like a little pandering to Homosexual-Lesbian-Bisexual-Transsexual activists to profane the Holy Season! (Read the president’s recent interview with the homosexual magazine The Advocate HERE, in which he says his “attitudes are evolving” on homosexual “marriage.” As for Biden, he calls same-sex “marriage” “inevitable”; see One News Now story featuring AFTAH below; listen to it by clicking on the audio button at the top right HERE.)

Evolving? Please. Did you know that in 1996 Obama explicitly came out FOR “same-sex marriage” in a candidate questionnaire? See my article HERE on Obama’s homosexual “marriage” doublespeak. For him, it’s not a matter of ”if” but “when” and “how” he gets there – and his homosexualist allies know it. But he’s slick: I still get mad thinking back to how Obama conned Rick Warren during the presidential debate with McCain — gaining bogus “pro-marriage” credentials with gullible Christians who had no clue as to how committed to homosexuality this mysterious man from Chicago really was.

Of course, from a Truth and moral formation perspective – Obama’s “evolving” views on homosexual “marriage” are worth about as much as Pee-Wee Herman’s. But Obama is our president, and he can and already is using his significant power to erode the meaning of marriage in our culture – promoting sexual sin in the guise of compassion and “rights” (and abortion-on-demand as a “reproductive right”). Make no mistake, this self-described “fierce” advocate of civil unions — fresh from his victory in homosexualizing the U.S. military — is sold out to the homosexual cause, including oxymoronic homosexual “marriage.” He will advance it any way he can — beginning with the evisceration of DOMA (the Defense of Marriage Act, signed into law by Bill Clinton).

CPAC’s GOProud Controversy Continues — FRC, CWA Pull Out

Tuesday, December 28th, 2010

“Would CPAC bring in an organization specifically devoted to promoting abortion and pretend it’s conservative?

Shame on CPAC for defending the absurd proposition that one can be ‘conservative’ while embracing moral surrender – in this case the idea espoused by GOProud of the government granting ‘rights’ and benefits based on sinful sexual conduct long regarded as anathema to biblical and Judeo-Christian values.” – Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH, quoted in WorldNetDaily.com

TAKE ACTION: There is nothing “conservative” about promoting homosexual behavior in the name of “civil rights.” Contact American Conservative Union (703-836-8602) and urge them to live up to their name and stop “gaying down” conservatism by embracing pro-homosexuality activism through CPAC. (ACU has allowed the homosexual activist group GOProud to be a sponsor at its Conservative Political Action Conference, to be held Feb. 10-12, 2010 in Washington, D.C.) ACU’s offices are closed for the holiday, but you can leave them a message on their voicemail or through their website contact page.

Biggest conservative names bidding goodbye to CPAC

Participation of homosexuals, financial mismanagement cited

By Brian Fitzpatrick
© 2010 WorldNetDaily; 12/27/10

Two of the nation’s premier moral issues organizations, the Family Research Council and Concerned Women for America, are refusing to attend the Conservative Political Action Conference in February because a homosexual activist group, GOProud, has been invited.

“We’ve been very involved in CPAC for over a decade and have managed a couple of popular sessions. However, we will no longer be involved with CPAC because of the organization’s financial mismanagement and movement away from conservative principles,” said Tom McClusky, senior vice president for FRC Action.

“CWA has decided not to participate in part because of GOProud,” CWA President Penny Nance told WND.

For God So Loved the World…

Saturday, December 25th, 2010

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.

Lesbian Chai Feldblum Confirmed as EEOC Commissioner

Thursday, December 23rd, 2010

Newly confirmed EEOC Commissioner, lesbian Chai Feldblum, calls the battle between religious freedom and rights based on homosexuality a "zero-sum game," in which homosexuals should win and Christians should lose.

Chai Feldblum – the homosexual activist who rightly acknowledges that “rights” based on homosexuality and the religious freedom to live out one’s opposition to homosexuality cannot peacefully coexist in the law – has been confirmed as a Commissioner of the EEOC. A lesbian and top homosexual legal strategist, Feldblum calls the battle between religious freedom and homosexuality-based “rights” a “zero-sum game” – in which homosexuals usually should win and Christians should lose. — Peter LaBarbera, www.aftah.org

Excerpted from The Advocate, a magazine for people practicing homosexuality:

Lesbian lawyer and longtime activist Chai Feldblum was confirmed as a commissioner of the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in a Senate vote Wednesday, the Federal Times reports.

Feldblum, who has been the target of much criticism by conservatives, had been serving under a recess appointment by President Obama since April, along with another commissioner, the commission’s chair, and its general counsel, who also were confirmed Wednesday in one of the Senate’s last actions before the holiday break.

AFTAH Targeted in Biased FOX-Chicago TV Report on SPLC’s Fraudulent ‘Hate Group’ Classification

Tuesday, December 21st, 2010

DePaul law student and AFTAH critic Maria Pahl offered a grossly distorted description of AFTAH's three-day Truth Academy held last August. FOX-Chicago relied on Pahl's inaccurate account to buttress its story on AFTAH's alleged "hate."

TAKE ACTION: Watch video [click HERE] and contact FOX Chicago News; e-mail news@foxchicago.com, or use their online form HERE.

Dear Readers, once again we see the Left and the pro-homosexual media (which too often are one and the same) conflating disagreement with homosexual behavior with “hate.”  Chicago-FOX News went to elaborate lengths to “expose” AFTAH is a “hate group” — per the classification by the left-wing ideologues over at the Southern Poverty Law Center.  But it seems the best they could come up with is that we joked about Congressman Barney Frank and made some common-sense observations about pat-downs by “gay” TSA agents! (If normal male TSA agents don’t frisk women, why should homosexual male TSA agents frisk men, or lesbians frisk women?)

How interesting that FOX Chicago’s “spies” at the recent Americans For Truth banquet came up empty-handed on examples of “hate.”  That’s because our keynote speaker, Ken Hutcherson — who received AFTAH’s “American Truth Teller” award for 2010 — spoke the truth about homosexuality in the love of Christ.  And at the three-day AFTAH Truth Academy, when we discovered that a young man (“Eric”) — a “spy” for homosexual activist Wayne Besen — was recording it against our wishes, we didn’t mistreat him or expel him from the conference.  Instead, a few of our attendees ended up having long conversations with Eric about homosexuality — respectfully hearing his views and sharing our Christian perspective on this lifestyle.  Eric even ended up joining everyone for dinner, and later admitted that he saw no “hatred” for homosexuals at the Academy.
 
Pastors and Christians — can you see it?  The Homosexual Lobby and their liberal allies seek ultimately to label your biblical beliefs as the hateful equivalent of the KKK.  Don’t let them get away with it!  God bless you. — Peter LaBarbera, www.aftah.org

Fox-Chicago News Does Hit-Piece on AFTAH as Alleged ‘Hate Group’

Americans For Truth About Homosexuality was the target of a biased FOX-Chicago TV report last night, pegging off the Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) controversial classification of AFTAH, the Family Research Council, American Family Association, Illinois Family Institute, and other mainstream pro-family organizations as “hate groups.” The report – which was really more of a dishonest hit piece — [watch it online HERE] relied on twisted characterizations of AFTAH’s Truth Academy, held at the Christian Liberty academy in August. I don’t know which Truth Academy DePaul law student and FOX source Maria Pahl attended but in her zeal to defame AFTAH she grossly skews what the Academy was all about.

The Truth Academy was three full days of lectures on many aspects of the homosexual activist agenda and its implications for larger society. I think Pahl attended a large part of it, yet here’s how she describes it to FOX, as reported by a website of an atheist high school teacher with whom she was aligned [listen about the two-minute mark HERE]:

“They think that gay people want to force HIV blood into the blood supply, they think that gay people want to recruit straight people, they think that homosexuals have training camps where they’re all taught the same sob story so straight people are sympathetic to them,” Pahl said.

Training camps? AFTAH’s audiotapes of the Academy — including of Cliff Kincaid’s talk, which discusses the continuing FDA ban on “men who have sex with men” donating blood are available to the public, and to FOX [see Truth Academy info HERE]. But rather than examine the veracity of Pahl’s take on the conference (or put her claims in context), FOX ran with her jaundiced and ridiculous description. Sadly, this is what passes for “news” and investigative reporting in Chicago.

Mark Saxenmeyer, the FOX reporter who interviewed me and Christian Liberty pastor Calvin Lindstrom for the story, is himself an open homosexual — which he told me and Pastor Lindstrom during the interview with us for the story. Saxenmeyer said he is not a “gay” activist, but based on our conversation he clearly is a strong advocate of homosexuality. (Saxenmeyer does not reveal his homosexuality on air, which is typical of homosexual reporters working on homosexuality-related stories; the news consumer rarely is informed of the reporter’s “special interest” in stories like these.)

Part Three: AFTAH Interview with Barb Anderson

Monday, December 20th, 2010

Barb Anderson of the Minnesota Family Council

Part Three of our interview with Barb Anderson of the Minnesota Family Council [click HERE to listen]. This segment was pre-taped and aired Saturday, Dec. 18, 2010. Anderson discusses the pro-homosexual propaganda fed to teachers through pro-LGBT seminars and workshops — which is then translated into biased, pro-”gay” education programs in schools. Anderson agrees with AFTAH’s Peter LaBarbera that liberal educators do not want parents to know about the radically pro-homosexual lesson programs that they are foisting on impressionable students in the name of “diversity.” She also comments on the politics of “bullying.” To listen to Part One of the interview, go HERE; for Part Two, go HERE
