Folks, being called a “pro-family hero” by Scott Lively is humbling, and a great honor. See below where Scott lists AFTAH as among his “Top 10 Pro-Family Heroes” for 2012.”
In recent years nobody has been on the receiving end of more lies, slanders and all-around wickedness at the hands of homosexual activists than Scott Lively. I don’t think the average Joe American could even comprehend what Scott has gone through — merely because he stands against the lies and myths of the Homosexual Movement. And yet he fights on undeterred because he knows that as a follower of Christ devoted to the Truth of God’s Word, he will be persecuted. I know Scott and he is nothing at all like the evil, hateful caricature that “gay” activists have made him out to be.
AFTAH presented Scott with its “American Truth Teller” award for 2011 because he exemplifies the sacrificial spirit of truthful, Christ-like resistance to the LGBT Sin Movement — which is based on one of the greatest frauds ever perpetrated against mankind: that homosexuality is natural (for some people), innocuous, “who you are,” and the basis for “civil rights.” Scott Lively is a true cultural hero, and a decent, great Christian man who loves homosexuals enough to tell them the Truth.

…Savage’s hateful “Porno Pete” video typical of vicious attacks on AFTAH
A new video by vulgar and hateful homosexual activist Dan Savage takes on AFTAH president Peter LaBarbera, smearing him as “Porno Pete” and using distortions in an attempt to discredit him. In the video (see link below), Savage repeats a lie about LaBarbera being ejected from his speech at Elmhurst College due to supposed disorderly behavior. LGBT militants hate AFTAH because we expose their lies and extremism.

By Peter LaBarbera, Americans For Truth
Dear AFTAH Readers,
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and are enjoying time with your family in this wonderful season when we reflect on Jesus Christ and His free gift of salvation for sinful man.
We at Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) are preparing for the New Year with all its challenges, even as we survey the wreckage of 2012. I say ‘wreckage’ because in recent weeks some prominent conservatives and Christians have compounded pro-family defeats on Election Day by signaling surrender on homosexuality and “gay marriage.”
One of the big stories of 2012 has been the weakening will of people who know in their heart that the Homosexual Lobby is wrong — or who once opposed it on principle — yet now they rationalize their embrace of homosexualism and “same-sex marriage” as an issue of “rights” out of fear that society is trending pro-“gay.”

Single gay man in his thirties compares “flakey” homosexual men to shallow, vicious 14-year-old girls…
Folks, here is a fascinating eight-and-a-half-minute YouTube video that reminds me of how — despite 20 years of monitoring the “gay” movement — AFTAH has only skimmed the surface in exposing the tragic reality of the homosexual lifestyle. AFTAH is excoriated by “gay” activists for allegedly exaggerating homosexuality’s downsides, but the reality is quite the opposite: as outsiders (I am not nor have I ever been homosexual or homosexually-tempted), we fail to convey how dysfunctional, superficial, and destructive it actually is.
The anonymous author of this video is no fan of AFTAH, to be sure. On Dec. 18, he tweeted: “My video is not meant for hetero[sexual] bigots. [It] is meant for other gay men who have to deal with the same things I do.” But that only makes the video more authoritative, not less. God only knows how representative and accurate this fellow’s bitter assessment of male homosexuality is. However, the video is a necessary and frank rebuttal to the ubiquitous cheerleading for homosexuality, as typified by the thousands of videos inspired by homosexual militant Dan Savage’s youth-oriented “It Gets Better Project.”
Few could doubt that LGBT advocates — desperate to rationalize their own (or a friend’s or relative’s) homosexuality, tend to downplay its many negatives. And of course the media and Hollywood — pressured by GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) — glamorize homosexuality. Think of this presentation as a lone, politically incorrect — and well documented — counterpoint to all the “gay”-affirming buzz. Following the video is research provided by the author to back up his claims. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH

Excerpted from WorldNetDaily. Matt Barber is Vice President of Liberty Counsel Action, a weekly WND columnist, and a Board Member of Americans For Truth:
In light of today’s horrific developments in Newtown, Conn. – developments so sorrowful that no words will do – I felt it only appropriate to pull my regular column for this week. I offer, instead, the only words I can at this inexpressibly mournful time: A simple prayer. ~ Matt Barber
Please come, Lord Jesus.
Come, King Jesus.
Come soon I pray.
Yet, even still come now, Holy Spirit, until such time.
We need you.

Tax-funded transgenderism: This is Celeste Flemming, and “she” is a man. At an “LGBTQ” conference in Norman, OK, Flemming compared “transitioning,” “male-to-female” transsexuals who are prevented from using women’s restrooms (e.g., at work) to racist Jim Crow laws that banned Black Americans from using the same public restrooms as whites. The Oklahoma conference was sponsored by the State of Oklahoma with federal grant dollars. Flemming is a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) employee who evidently now is used by the agency to help accommodate other gender-“transitioning” FAA employees.
OKLAHOMA CITY — I’m writing you from Oklahoma, having just attended a pro-homosexual conference funded with YOUR tax dollars and sponsored by the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), a branch of HHS. We will have a full report on this one-day conference, which not only was devoid of pro-family advocates but featured speakers who were explicitly anti-biblical in their ideology, e.g., claiming that Romans 1 does NOT proscribe homosexual acts as sinful.
Here’s an excerpt from a conference flier titled, “What does the bible say about homosexuality?” passed out by presenter Kathy McCallie, in a session called “Spiritual Wellness in BGLT (sic) Communities, a Primer”:
“[The Apostle] Paul had no inkling that for some persons, a same-sex orientation might be natural, that is, part of who they are created to be. If he had known this, he would have had to argue that, for such persons, heterosexual acts would be unnatural.”
Whatever happened to liberal demands for “Separation of Church and State” (which is actually a twisting of the First Amendment)?! Here we have Americans’ tax dollars being used to assault historic biblical teaching against homosexuality as sinful.
As you can see from the photo above, the Oklahoma conference, although supposedly focusing on substance abuse, devoted much energy to promoting gender confusion and homosexuality. Can you imagine comparing gender-confused men who believe they are “women” but are denied use of the ladies’ restroom to Blacks suffering under official Jim Crow racism — as male-to-female trans “woman” Celeste Flemming did?
The very first speaker at the conference, Randy Roberts Potts — the openly homosexual grandson of the late Oral Roberts — maligned my friend and Oklahoma St. Rep. Sally Kern, accusing her of being “hateful” toward homosexuals and going on a “witch-hunt” against them. Stay tuned to this story, which also sheds like on the Obama administration’s radical use of the federal bureaucracy to promote the homosexualist agenda across America. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH

Pastor Ken Hutcherson
Here is Part Two of Americans For Truth Hour’s interview with Ken Hutcherson [click HERE to listen], former NFL linebacker and pastor of Antioch Bible Church in Redmond, Washington. [Click HERE to listen to Part One.] “Hutch” first discusses how as a youth he overcome a race-focused mindset to accept Jesus Christ, who became his “new Coach” while the Bible became his playbook. In commenting on Rick Warren’s ambiguous statements about homosexuality, sin and Prop 8, Hutcherson says that for a man to indulge sexual thoughts about another man is a sin unto itself: “Our thought patterns [are] what lead to the sin in the first place.”
Hutcherson says that rather than talk about his “gay” friends, Warren should be highlighting his “ex-gay” friends. “We’ve gotten to the point now [that] we’ve forgotten that we’re pastors and we want to be more politicians,” Hutcherson said. “A politician won’t give you a straight answer…to save his life, but he will give you an answer to save his seat.”

Justice Anthony Kennedy
Gary Bauer of the Campaign for Working Families PAC wrote the following in his “End of Day” newsletter December 10, 2012:
High Court To Decide Meaning Of Marriage
Late Friday afternoon, the Supreme Court announced it would hear arguments in two cases dealing with the meaning of marriage. From the cases selected, it appears as though the justices want to tackle the issue from both the state and federal perspective.
One comes from New York and challenges the constitutionality of the 1996 federal Defense of Marriage Act. The second case stems from a challenge to California’s voter-approved initiative Proposition 8, which defined marriage as the union of one man and one woman.
It is difficult to predict how the court will rule in either case. Some conservatives are cautiously optimistic about the Proposition 8 case, believing that the justices will find striking down a popularly-enacted law on something as basic as the meaning of marriage to be an affront to the right of self-government and the foundation of our republican form of government.
I’m not holding my breath. The Supreme Court is split with four reliable liberals, four generally conservative justices and one moderate, swing vote — Justice Anthony Kennedy. While Justice Kennedy sided with conservatives in the Obamacare decision, he has a long history of siding with the court’s liberals when it comes to abortion and homosexual rights.
For example, Justice Kennedy wrote the majority opinion in Romer v. Evans, which struck down a popularly-enacted ballot initiative in Colorado preventing special legal protection based solely on homosexual behavior [see text of Colorado Amendment 2 in footnote 2 HERE]. Justice Kennedy also wrote the majority opinion in Lawrence v. Texas, which struck down state laws against sodomy.

“Kinky” sex includes “master-slave” role-playing in which the dominant person leads his partner-slave around like a dog. This photo (nudity covered) is from San Francisco’s 2008 “Folsom Street Fair.” Click to enlarge. Photo: AFTAH.
In 1650, Harvard’s orginal charter affirmed how the “good hand of God” had led men to make gifts for the creation of Harvard College to educate youth in “knowledge and godliness.”
Three hundred and sixty-two years later, Harvard wants to make sure student perverts (I’m sorry…kink advocates) are officially part of the school’s “diversity” framework. Kink is the hip term for, among other things, sadomasochism — which glorifies consensual sexual violence and degradation. You know, people gettting their body whipped to a bloody pulp for sexual satisfaction, or locked in a cage, or a “mummification” suit, or getting shocked with “electro-torture” devices–as a turn-on.
Or how about this bit of “alternative sexuality”: couples play-acting as dominant “Master” and submissive “slave,” complete with a chain and collar for the latter (see photo). So much for sexual “liberation”…This is truly sick sex.
And to think that many on the Left see this as “progress.” Here’s what a similar “kink” student group officially recognized by the University of Chicago brought to that campus: a “Leather Library” sadomasochism traveling exhibit that exposed youth to the most heinous sexual perversions known to mankind. (Which included, as this writer discovered, homosexual “snuff film” literary porn — eroticizing sexual torture to the point of murder.)
The sixties radicals who started this Sexual Revolution got one thing right when they preached: “Question Authority.” Their revolution has failed abysmally, and now it is they — the academic (and media/Hollywood) overlords of political correctness and sexual anarchy — who must be overthrown if our nation has any chance of recovering its greatness. How about we begin with a Common Sense Revolution that puts an end to madness like this? — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH
The following is excerpted from an Associated Press report:
Harvard recognizes group promoting safe kinky sex
AP / December 5, 2012
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — Kinky sex has been admitted to Harvard.
The nation’s oldest university has formally recognized Harvard College Munch, a group promoting discussions and safe practices of kinky and alternative sex. The school has no record of a similar group being recognized in its 376-year history.
The Committee on Student Life recognized Munch on Friday, making it one of 400 independent student organizations on campus. The decision occurred more than a year after members began meeting informally over meals.
