Exclusive: AFTAH Interview with Liberty Counsel’s Matt Barber (Truth Academy Speaker)

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

Folks, please read the interview I recently did with Matt Barber, Vice President of Liberty Counsel Action and AFTAH board member. This helps to underscore why now, more than ever, the Americans for Truth Academies are an indispensable tool to help freedom-loving, morality-supporting Americans become equipped to push back against the homosexualist juggernaut. Click here to learn how you can join us this Friday and Saturday (April 1 and 2) in Columbus, OH for the next Truth Academy. ~ Peter LaBarbera

Matt Barber in the ring

PL: In the past couple of days you’ve been under tremendous assault from homosexual activists and other liberals for some comments you made on Liberty Counsel’s Faith & Freedom talk radio program about bullying, the tragedy of teen suicide and homosexual sin. Tell our readers about that.

MB: Yeah, this has given us a teachable moment. You know, scripture says ‘woe to those who call evil good and good evil.’ When homosexual activists and other ‘progressives’ in the pro-sin movement are exposed to biblical truth, their reaction is invariably visceral and loud. There’s ‘nothing new under the sun.’ This ‘kill the messenger’ strategy is age-old and knee-jerk. These folks, as a matter of course, call evil good and good evil. Of course their gripe isn’t with me. I’m nothing. I’m nobody. Their problem is with their Creator, the natural order and the fallen state of mankind. They’re just lost.

PL: What specifically did you say to bring down such hate?

I merely repeated what God’s objective truth about sexual sin has always held: That heterosexual fornication, to include adultery, is sin and that homosexual behavior is always immoral and unnatural. Scripture is unequivocal on these points throughout both the Old and New Testaments. So, essentially I said nothing new.

Here’s where they lost their collective noodle: I also pointed out how the pro-sin movement is cynically manipulating the very real problem of childhood and teen bullying – something anyone with a heart is opposed to – in order to push, with a ‘Trojan horse strategy,’ a radical pro-homosexual, anti-Christian agenda. On this, there’s no debate. This is evil. When you shine light on evil those who love darkness will scurry for the shadows and blindly shoot arrows into the light.

LISTEN: AFTAH Interview with David Kupelian – Part One

Monday, March 28th, 2011

David Kupelian, author of "The Marketing of Evil" and "How Evil Works," is keynote speaker this Friday evening at the Truth Academy in Columbus OH (April 1-2).

Here is Part One of our three-part interview with David Kupelian, managing editor of WorldNetDaily.com and the keynote speaker at the Truth Academy: Columbus, Ohio, April 1-2. [Click HERE to listen.] This interview aired March 26. Kupelian is author of “The Marketing of Evil” and “How Evil Works.” Kupelian and AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera discuss notorious sex researcher Alfred Kinsey, who, incredibly, included “data” from child molesters in his groundbreaking volume, “Sexual Behavior and the Human Male.” Despite the fact that the book included actual tables containing the sickening information about timed child (and even baby) “orgasms,” this never became a big media story when the book was published in the 1950s. It took decades for pro-family researcher Judith Reisman to bring the scandalous information to the attention of the U.S. public.

LaBarbera notes that just one crusading journalist or media company – armed with the appallingly evil “data” — could have taken Kinsey and his entire project down. But Kupelian says that U.S. society at the time was in awe of scientists, and ripe for manipulation by Kinsey (who was a masochistic sex pervert from his youth). At some level, Kupelina says, Americans were morally compromised enough to allow Kinsey’s “junk science” to help usher in a looser morality for the culture (precisely his goal). The Kinsey “research” is still used to advance the norming of homosexuality in society. Learn more about the Truth Academy (early registration expires midnight, March 28th) HERE.

Illinois High School Allows Display Celebrating Homosexual ‘Civil Unions’ Law

Monday, March 28th, 2011

Dear Readers, each pro-homosexual law makes it easier for school administrators and teachers to allow the one-sided promotion of homosexuality in their school, as occurred recently at Lyons Township High School in LaGrange, Illinois (see photo). The state’s Democrat-dominated General Assembly passed a “Civil Unions” bill in a lame-duck session last year (before a new elected, more conservative legislature could take office) — and Gov. Pat Quinn (D) signed it into law January 31. (The bill, which also allows heterosexual “civil unions,” thus further undermining marriage, takes effect June 1.)

America’s public schools are becoming de facto “Homosexuality-Promotion Zones” — directly undermining the authority of parents to guide their children’s moral upbringing — and subjecting Christian and moral-minded students to one-sided pro-homosexuality propaganda like the above. — Peter LaBarbera, www.aftah.org; [Send news about your children's or local schools to americansfortruth@gmail.com.]

Apple Pulls Ex-’Gay’ iPhone App after Lobbying Campaign by Hateful Homosexual Activists

Friday, March 25th, 2011

Politically correct media abets ‘homo-fascist’ drive to squelch Christians’ voice

Apple Inc. has dropped two pro-family "apps" from its iPhone following protest campaigns by homosexual activists.

TAKE ACTION: Contact Apple Inc regarding its open hostility to faith-based customers defending traditional morality and its capitulation to homosexual activists. Call 408-996-1010.

By Peter LaBarbera

On Wednesday, Apple Inc. succumbed to a web-based homosexual lobbying blitz demanding that it drop an “app” for the ex-”gay” ministry Exodus International from its iPhone. This capitulation is only the latest to reward a creeping ’homo-fascism’ that is spreading across America and the world — and which is integral to the wider LGBT activist strategy of demonizing and marginalizing religious people opposed to homosexuality. We don’t use this term lightly — the Homosexual Lobby’s hardball strategy is built on lies, intimidation and even bullying of well-meaning, compassionate Christians and religious people who simply disagree with the practice of homosexuality.

Incredibly, a tiny Sexual Sin Lobby–  purporting to represent perhaps 1-2 percent (or less) of any given population — presumes to dictate to the rest of us what is and is not acceptable speech, ideas, and conduct with regard to homosexuality and same-sex “marriage.” (They even claim to be the arbiter of what is ”love” and “hate.”) The failure of the national media — stuck in “gays-as-victims” mode – to question the growing pro-LGBT intolerance, demonization, and oppression of adherents to Judeo-Christian  moral teachings, itself contributes greatly to the persecution of people of faith.

LISTEN: AFTAH Interview with Brian Camenker of MassResistance: about Maryland Grassroots Defeat of Homosexual ‘Marriage’

Thursday, March 24th, 2011

‘Moderation’ and avoiding homosexual issue were NOT the key to upset victory, says pro-family veteran

This pre-taped interview [click HERE to listen] with Brian Camenker of Mass Resistance aired on Chicago Christian radio station WYLL on March 19, 2011. Camenker discusses the successful grassroots effort in Maryland to stop a pro-homosexual “marriage” bill — which he helped by advising pro-family Md. activists and sharing with them what legalized “same-sex marriage” did to Massachusetts. AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera and Camenker discuss how the Maryland victory was NOT the result of careful, non-offensive packaging — i.e., avoiding the issue of homosexuality — that has characterized several statewide battles against homosexual “marriage.” They talk about Camenker’s advice below from the M.R. article, Maryland pro-family victory analysis: Top 10 reasons why it was WON when it looked like it would lose”: 

They ignored the moderate conservative “expert”s.” Early on, a pro-family group made an effort to pull all the Maryland groups into a “coalition” under a unified leadership. They would dictate strategy. They also insisted that the pro-marriage message be tightly controlled, that it be “moderate” and not anti-gay or otherwise “fringe” sounding, be calm and not too emotional, and that they decide who testifies at the marriage hearings, and what the testimony would be. That’s what happened in Massachusetts in 2005-2007 and it led to a huge failure.

On our MassResistance conference calls we advised Maryland activists to ignore that — and act independently with their own messages, and be as emotional and outspoken as they feel appropriate. Luckily eventually everyone did that and the coalition effectively fell apart. It was the best thing that could have happened.

Combat Troops to Get Pro-Homosexual Sensitivity Training

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

We’ve got a lot of catching up to do on the Obama Administration’s ever-expanding homosexualist agenda. A few more developments like this and the United States will grow into a much larger version of morally decadent Great Britain. Where is the Republican Party in seeking to reverse this nonsense? At the very minimum they should be calling hearings to investigate how Obama and Defense Secretary Robert Gates manipulated Congress into rushing into this pro-homosexual, wartime remodeling of our Armed Forces in a lame-duck session. TAKE ACTION: Call your Congressman and Senators at 202-224-3121 and urge them to investigate the Obama homosexualization of the American military. – Peter LaBarbera, www.aftah.org

Combat troops to get gay sensitivity training

New policy OK’d for battlefield

By Rowan Scarborough, Washington Times, Feb. 24, 2011

American combat troops will get sensitivity training directly on the battlefield about the military’s new policy on gays instead of waiting until they return to home base in the United States, the senior enlisted man in Afghanistan said Thursday.

The Pentagon is launching an extensive force-wide program to ease the process of integrating open homosexuals into the ranks, including into close-knit fighting units. Army Command Sgt. Maj. Marvin Hill, the top enlisted man in Afghanistan where 100,000 U.S. troops are deployed, said that the sessions on respecting gays’ rights will go right down to the forward operating bases, where troops fight Taliban militants.
