Scott Lively: Classic Liberals Discover Homo-Fascism

Sunday, July 29th, 2012

In the early morning of AFTAH’s Oct. 15, 2011 banquet honoring Scott Lively, pro-homosexual activists threw two large, concrete paver bricks through the glass door of the Christian School hosting our banquet. The message on one read: “Shut Down Lively.”

Folks, few people in the world have been have been attacked, smeared and lied about by the homosexualist movement as Scott Lively, founder of Defend the Family International (and recipient of AFTAH’s 2011 “American Truth-Teller” award). It is to Lively’s great credit that because he fears God rather than man, he has never abandoned the defense of Truth on this issue, as so many have. Will liberal elites and the media start holding pro-homosexuality activists accountable for their intolerance of opposing views? – Peter LaBarbera, Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH)

Classic Liberals Discover Homo-Fascism

By Scott Lively, first published in WND

The brouhaha over Chick-fil-A COO Dan Cathy’s defense of authentic marriage has caused a fender-bender on the political left. Classic free speech liberalism has apparently met for the first time the new generation of homo-fascists. Heady with empowerment by President Obama and a long string of political and legal victories, the “gay” activist movement and its homosexualist allies are flexing their muscles like never before. Two such allies, Mayors Tom Merino of Boston and Rahm Emanuel of Chicago announced plans to use the powers of their respective offices to prevent Chick-fil-A from expanding its business in these two cities. Their blatant disregard for the First Amendment was so egregious that it apparently shocked a number of classic liberals into action.

Salon Magazine’s Glenn Greenwald chided his fellow-travelers on the left in a column titled “Rahm Emanuel‘s Dangerous Free Speech Attack,” remarking “You can’t cheer when political officials punish the expression of views you dislike and then expect to be taken seriously when you wrap yourself in the banner of free speech in order to protest state punishment of views you like and share.” He listed a number of other liberal journalists and groups like the ACLU who had also gone public with their criticism.

Welcome to the brave new world of homo-fascism, Mr. Greenwald, but watch your back. You’re now officially a “homophobe” because you have dared to oppose something that is favorable to the “gay” cause. Sure, you tried to cover your backside by tossing in a couple of cheap shots at the “chicken CEO” but that won’t save you from the Brownshirts. They don’t really care about free speech. They care about power. Indeed, if you had been paying attention over the past few years, you would have noticed that their official position is that “anti-gay bigots” don‘t deserve free speech at all.

AFTAH Interviews Professor Rena Lindevaldsen on DOMA, Openly Homosexual Judges – Part Two

Friday, July 27th, 2012

This is Part Two of our (second) in-depth interview with Prof. Rena Lindevaldsen [click HERE to listen], a professor at Liberty University School of Law and Associate Dean of the Liberty Center for Law and Policy. This interview was recorded July 26, 2012. AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera and co-host John Kirkwood discuss with Lindevaldsen the liberal metamorphosis of American law from being used to promote virtue to its present use to promote vice (including homosexuality). There is further discussion from last week’s interview of the implications of an openly homosexual judge, Sophia Hall, presiding over case involving 25 homosexual couples challenging Illinois’ law defining marriage as it is: between a man and a woman. Lindevaldsen reiterates that Judge Hall has a clear conflict of interest and should recuse herself from the case.

There is also a brief discussion of Sally Ride, the first female astronaut, whose passing away prompted some homosexual activists to stress that she was a lesbian. LaBarbera speculates that there will be an effort to teach about Ride as a homosexual “hero” in future “Gay History Month” celebrations — including in schools. He said that while Ride’s groundbreaking achievements have earned her a place in history, her homosexuality should not be lauded nor made the focus of her life story. See Part One of AFTAH’s interview with Prof. Lindevaldsen HERE.

How to Contact Chick-fil-A to Support their Defense of Traditional Marriage and Biblical Values

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

Dan Cathy, COO of Chick-fil-A, is under fire from the Left and homosexual activists for standing up for the God-ordained family and marriage.

Folks, it seems that the United States of America is now almost completely upside-down, morally-speaking.  We are living out Isaiah 5:20: “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil.”  Chick-fil-A COO Dan Cathy non-apologetically defends the Christian traditional family values and immediately becomes the target of a vast, left-wing, pro-homosexual network of LGBT lobby groups and fellow travelers like Lisa Henson, widow of Muppets’ creator Jim Henson.  (Actually, the pro-homosexual movement has been targeting Chick-fil-A for quite some time now, and has succeeded in getting some restaurants booted off liberal college campuses, according to the corporate representative with whom I spoke.)

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

Prof. Rena Lindevaldsen

This is Part One of AFTAH’s second interview with Prof. Rena Lindevaldsen [click HERE to listen], Associate Dean at Liberty University School of Law, based in Lynchburg, Va. This interview with AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera and Pastor John Kirkwood of Grace Gospel Fellowship church in Bensenville, Illinois, was recorded July 19, 2012. Lindevaldsen discusses the homosexual/ACLU lawsuit in Illinois contending that the state’s law defining marriage as between one man and one woman is unconstitutional. She opines that the presiding judge, Cook County Circuit Judge Sophia Hall, an open lesbian and member of a homosexual judges group, should recuse herself from the case due to an obvious conflict-of-interest. Lindevaldsen is the author of Only One Mommy: A Woman’s Battle for her Life, Her Daughter and her Freedom,” the story of ex-lesbian-turned-Christian Lisa Miller’s quest to keep custody of her biological daughter, Isabella, and to deny custody to her former lesbian partner.

Spotlight on Paterno Gives Cover to Real Penn State Culprit: Graham Spanier

Monday, July 23rd, 2012

American Family Association of Pennsylvantia News Release

July 23, 2012 Contact:  Diane Gramley 1-814.437.5355

(Harrisburg)  — Former Penn State Defensive Coordinator Jerry Sandusky sat before his jury of peers and was found guilty of 45 counts of sexual abuse last month and faces life in prison.  Athletic Director Tim Curley and Vice President for Finance Gary Schultz have been charged with  perjury and covering up allegations of child sexual abuse.    Early Sunday morning Joe Paterno’s statute outside Beaver Stadium was removed.    The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA) has but one question, “Where is Graham Spanier?”

“On November 9th Graham Spanier was removed as President of Penn State University.  The statement he issued upon removal included this sentence, ‘ I am heartbroken to think that any child may have been hurt and have deep convictions about the need to protect children and youth.’   He remains as a professor at the university.  His policies, and the lax oversight of the Board of Trustees, are what created the atmosphere which allowed this tragedy to continue.  Where is Graham Spanier and will he be held accountable?” questioned Diane Gramley, president of the AFA of PA.

LISTEN: AFTAH Interviews Brian Camenker of MassResistance on Adam Flanders’ Legal Harassment, Chicago Lesbian Judge Sophia Hall

Sunday, July 22nd, 2012

 

Brian Camenker (above) is being sued for $1 million by Maine homosexual and Registered Sex Offender Adam Flanders.

This interview [Click HERE to listen] with Brian Camenker of MassResistance was conducted July 12, 2012. We discuss the bizarre legal antics of Maine homosexual Adam Flanders, who is suing Camenker for $1 million for alleged “defamation,” in part because Camender and MR refused to take down from their website an open letter that Flanders wrote in 2007 exposing predatory sexual misconduct at a “gay youth” center in Belfast, Maine. Camenker and AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera (and co-host John Kirkwood) also discuss Illinois homosexual lawsuits to overturn that state’s law defining marriage for what it is: one man, one woman. Camenker comments on AFTAH’s reporting that the judge ruling on the “gay” and ACLU lawuits, Cook County Circuit Judge Sophia Hall, is an open lesbian and member of a homosexual judges group that advocates for homosexuals.

Chicago Judge Sophia Hall — Deciding ACLU’s ‘Gay Marriage’ Lawsuit – Is Open Lesbian

Friday, July 20th, 2012

Cook County judge is member of homosexual judges group, advocated for “gay” cause; pro-family attorneys say she should recuse herself from case

Cook County Circuit Court Judge Sophia Hall as she appears in 2007 photo of her being honored along with 13 other openly homosexual judges. (See larger photo below.) Hall is a member of a Chicago-area homosexual judges group that celebrates homosexual unions and marches annually in Chicago’s “Gay Pride” parade.

By Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH exclusive

CHICAGO—Cook County Circuit Court Judge Sophia Hall – who will rule on combined pro-homosexual lawsuits challenging Illinois’ existing law defining marriage as one-man, one-woman — is an open lesbian and pro-homosexuality advocate, according to information widely available online but which has gone unreported by the media.

Judge Hall’s homosexuality is not a secret, nor an ”open secret” –as it was with  Vaughn Walker, the California judge who last year issued a decision overturning that state’s Proposition 8 marriage amendment only to subsequently reveal his “gay” identity. In contrast, Hall is a “charter member” of a homosexual judges organization in Chicago, the Alliance of Illinois Judges, which marches in Chicago’s annual “gay pride” parade. Last year, the AIJ sponsored — along with the “gay” activist organizations Lambda Legal and Equality Illinois – a public outdoor ceremony attended by city officials celebrating Illinois’ new “civil unions” law; AIJ judges officiated the “civil unions” for homosexual couples.

In a perusal of recent media reports on the Chicago “gay marriage” lawsuit, Judge Hall’s lesbianism and membership in a homosexual judges group that advocates for “gay rights” went unreported. Thus their implications for the case have not been publicly scrutinized, even by leading Illinois conservatives. Meanwhile, two pro-family attorneys contacted by AFTAH said Hall should recuse herself from the homosexual “marriage” case due to her personal conflict-of-interest. The pro-homosexual-”marriage” lawsuits were brought jointly by the ACLU and Lambda Legal, a homosexual legal group. Illinois’ Attorney General, Lisa Madigan, is supporting the homosexual activist lawsuits rather than defending her state’s marriage law.

Judge Hall herself has openly advocated for pro-homosexual causes, saying in a 2010 speech that she has “focused on efforts to combat the injustice of racism, gender bias, bias against gays and lesbians, and other stereotypes that belittle those who are stereotyped.”

The graphic below is a modified version of what appears in the July 2007 newsletter of the Lesbian and Gay Bar Association Chicago (LAGBAC) — which hosted a reception honoring Judge Hall and 13 other openly homosexual judges in Cook County:

The same edition of the LAGBAC newsletter announced two $4,000 scholarships to law students interning at Lambda Legal, one of which was “doing a myriad of assignments surrounding the Iowa same-sex marriage case.” Two years later, on April 3, 2009, homosexual “marriage” was legalized by the Iowa high court in a 7-0 decision.

Calls for Recusal

News of Judge Hall’s membership in and association with Chicago homosexual advocacy groups brought calls for her to recuse herself from the case that could bring legal homosexual “marriage” to Cook County (if not all of Illinois, although her decision will almost certainly be appealed to the Illinois Supreme Court). Said Professor Rena Lindevaldsen, Associate Dean of the Liberty University School of Law:

Convicted Homosexual Sex Offender Adam Flanders Loses Initial Bid to Muzzle MassResistance Website

Thursday, July 19th, 2012

Belfast, ME police chief says he did not mean to compare Flanders’ sex crime involving minor boy to “stealing a candy bar”

Adam Flanders.

The following is excerpted from an article in the outstanding pro-family news site, LifeSiteNews. Go HERE to read our article containing Flanders’ threatening letter to AFTAH, and HERE for our re-post of his 2007 public letter exposing sexual abuses at a Maine homosexual youth group. Ironically, young Flanders’ desperate and outrageous attempts to erase the 2007 letter from the web have only drawn considerably greater attention to it, and to his adult-child sexual crime as well. Please pray for this lost and confused soul. –Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH

Convicted Gay Sex Offender Loses Initial Bid to Muzzle Pro-family Website MassResistance

By Matthew Cullinan Hoffman, Jul 18, 2012

July 18, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A convicted sex abuser who has filed a one million dollar suit against the pro-family group Mass Resistance suffered a setback last week when his motion for a preliminary injunction to silence the group was rejected by the presiding judge.

“Maine may not punish, through criminal sanction, an individual’s actions that are protected by the free speech clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution,” wrote District Judge Patricia G. Worth in her decision, signed on July 11.

Meanwhile, a police chief that Adam E. Flanders has repeatedly claimed supported his lawsuit and described his sex abuse charge as akin to “stealing a candy bar” has disputed Flanders’ account of events in a LifeSiteNews (LSN) interview. LSN has also learned that in addition to the sex abuse charge, Flanders has been convicted of assaulting a minor with whom he had a sexual relationship, as well as the boy’s father, with a knife.

Adam Flanders, a Belfast, Maine homosexual who was convicted in 2008 of sexual abuse of a minor and sentenced to three months in jail, has been seeking to force Mass Resistance to remove from its website a copy of a letter Flanders wrote in 2007, accusing a local homosexual “youth group” of facilitating the sexual abuse and exploitation of minors. It also describes Flanders’ own relationships with minors in the group after he had turned 18.
