AFTAH’s Peter LaBarbera speaks at the “Restrain the Judges” press event at the Supreme Court–the day before the Court is scheduled to hear oral arguments on two aspects of the homosexual “marriage” debate. Click to enlarge.
WASHINGTON, D.C.–AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera delivered the following remarks at the “Restrain the Judges” press conference held in front of the U.S. Supreme Court Monday, April 27, 2015. The event, featuring short speeches by 13 pro-family leaders led by Janet Porter of Faith2Action, was held the day before oral arguments at the Court dealing with: 1) whether states should be required to legalize homosexual “marriage”; and 2) whether states must recognize out-of-state homosexual “marriages.”
A nation cannot simultaneously honor God and codify sexual sin as a “civil right.”
We stand here today in front of a court that legalized the slaughter of the unborn—abortion—in all 50 states as a supposed constitutional “choice.”
This same court is now poised to nationalize a historical anomaly—so-called “marriage” based on a sexual perversion—as a “constitutional right.”
No man-made law has the moral authority to overturn–and even criminalize–God’s transcendent law. In a nation formed by those fleeing religious persecution, freedom of conscience and faith must be sacrosanct.
But apparently, the “T” in “LGBT” stands for “Tyranny.” In the name of a false “gay” equality, United States citizens are losing their freedom to act on moral and spiritual truths. Some now face massive fines for doing so.
In the name of a false “gay” equality, millions of American voters who stood up for marriage as one man, one woman, were disenfranchised by a few judges.
In the name of a false “gay” equality, schoolchildren are being indoctrinated in concepts of sexuality, gender and “rights” that defy Nature and Nature’s God. Because in states with legalized homosexual “marriage,” you have to teach homosexual sex-ed because all lifestyles are “equal” and you cannot “discriminate” against “gay” relationships.
In the name of a false equality, young people are losing their right of sexual self-determination—and parents are losing their parental rights—as a movement that began in the name of “Tolerance” moves to stifle dissent.
And in the name of a false ‘gay” equality, God’s holy Word, the Bible, is being rewritten to accommodate sin.
There is no “animus” whatsoever in our fervent hope and prayer that America’s highest court will show restraint and not enshrine a godless legal system that crushes liberty in the high-sounding name of “equality” and “civil rights.”
Homosexual creators of The Fosters’ model sexual perversion to children in the name of “gay” equality
Corrupted by Hollywood–and His Parents: Above is The Fosters star Hayden Byerly, who is 14 but plays a 13-year-old in a budding homosexual relationship with his best friend on the ABC Family sitcom. Imagine as a parent allowing your son to engage in perverse homosexual acts as part of a Hollywood role. Read Byerly’s IMDB bio HERE.
“Both Brad [Bredeweg] and I are gay men and it felt very true to both of our early coming out experiences,” [Peter] Paige told [The Wrap.com]. “More than anything else, we felt responsibility to those kids and to our younger selves who didn’t see themselves reflected anywhere.”
“When people question the scene my response has been: ‘Everyone has a first kiss and you remember it. How old were you?’” Bredeweg added. “Ninety percent of people who have an answer come back and say, ‘I was 12, 13 and 14 years old,’ and I say, ‘Exactly. It was time to see this, time to put this up for the world.’” — The Fosters co-creators Peter Paige and Brad Bredeweg, positing a moral equivalence between homosexual behavior and normal heterosexuality, quoted in TheWrap.com: “ABC Family’s ‘The Fosters’ Creators Defend 13-Year-Old Gay Male Kiss: Watch Before Judging”
ABC Against the Family: AFTAH has blocked the homosexual kiss above from a recent episode of ABC Family’s “The Fosters.” The characters, Jude and Connor, are 13-year-olds, and are in the 7th grade. At left, playing Jude, is actor Hayden Byerly, who in real life is 14. At right is actor Gavin MacIntosh, who turned 16 on March 22, 2015. Liberals are extolling this “youngest gay kiss on TV.” Watch a YouTube of the scene with the Fosters’ immoral boy-boy kiss HERE.
WARNING: Offensive Video
TAKE ACTION: ABC Family is now directly promoting homo-erotic “romance” between underage children– two boys who are cast as 13 year olds kissed in a recent episode of the ABC Family Show “The Fosters.” The network is obviously contemptuous of time-tested Judeo-Christian morality, but contact them anyway. Use ABC Family online Contact Form, or call (818)460-747 [you will get a series of phone-mail options, ending in one to leave a 30-second message with your thoughts about ABC Family’s “other programming,” e.g., The Fosters]
The ongoing entertainment media’s corruption of children and youth took another devilish leap recently with the youngest ever homosexual kiss on a TV show, ABC Family’s“The Fosters.” ABC Family is wholly owned by Disney/ABC.
Social “progressives” are destroying morality in this country. We are in big, big trouble because their God-defying sexual revolution has advanced much farther than most pro-family advocates are willing to admit. Just a few years ago, I was writing about how liberal, outwardly pro-“gay” journalists were squeamish about putting photos of homosexuals kissing prominently on a newspaper page. Now ABC “Family” is showing young teenage boys making out–yet where is the national outrage?
In the last few weeks I have been trying to wrap my mind around the escalating evil surrounding the promotion of the LGBTQueer agenda in America, which now includes powerful Hollywood “gay” activists directly promoting and celebrating immoral homo-sexual behavior to young boys.
AFTAH is breaking its rule against showing indecent homosexual kisses by including a short YouTube video of The Fosters’ kiss and the best-friends-falling-in-love plot leading up to it; go to the end of the piece HERE; or you can view it on YouTube HERE.
“I Feel, Therefore I Am” — This sums up the philosophy of both the homosexual and “transgender” movements. But reality is more important than confused or rebellious feelings, and the objective reality is that God made Bruce Jenner a man, and he can never become a woman. Pray for Mr. Jenner.

MADISON, Wis., April 24, 2015 /Christian Newswire/ — Bruce Jenner’s interview with Diane Sawyer on 20/20 will be glorified by the LGBTQ movement. The interview will be on Friday, April 24.
In 2003, 4 WINDS was the only Christian sports ministry publicly taking on the International Olympic Committee (IOC) for allowing transgenders in the Olympics. The IOC effort passed smoothly.
“We knew this would create a problem down the road,” says 4 WINDS President Steve McConkey. “The problem now is even greater than we thought it would be. You now have thirty-three state high school associations allowing transgender athletes on their high school teams. It will only get worse.”
During the last two years, 4 WINDS voiced their concerns when the IOC and the United States Olympic Committee pushed their LGBTQ non-discrimination policies.
“If an athlete is in a church and they voice their view on homosexuality, what are the consequences?” states Steve McConkey. “Free speech is free because the government and sports associations do not have the right to dictate how a person believes. Biblical values are non-negotiable on major doctrines and morals.”
The decline in morals in the USA can be attributed to Christians not knowing how to defend their faith. Christians need to pray and freely voice their concerns.
4 WINDS hopes that those who are in error would come to know Jesus Christ as Savior. The only hope man has is through the cross of Christ. Please contact 4 WINDS for further information.
Steve McConkey is the President of 4 Winds Christian Athletics (4 WINDS). Steve and his wife started working in world-class track and field ministries in 1981. 4 WINDS was formed in 1988 and expanded to all sports in 2014. Steve regularly appears on worldwide radio and is frequently quoted in articles throughout the world. He has a Master of Public Health from Western Kentucky University with honors and a BS-Public Health from Minnesota State University, Mankato. Steve became a Christian in 1976 after reading the New Testament. He was born in Des Moines, Iowa, but moved to NW Wisconsin after the sixth grade.

Folks, this video by my friend Cliff Kincaid of America’s Survival is priceless: a supposedly professional “gay journalists” group, NLGJA, shuts down the videotaping of it auctioning off a male “Chippendales” stripper at the group’s annual New York City fundraiser. Clearly, NLGJA (National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association) leaders cared more about mitigating an embarrassing “PR crisis” than granting reportorial access to their event. Strange, but revealing: it seems a bit of appropriate shame dampened their “gay pride.” You can also watch it on YouTube. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH.org
PS. AFTAH and America’s Survival have led the way in exposing the NLGJA–which is funded by major media corporations including Fox News–as a highly politicized, pro-homosexual activist organization, as demonstrated by Cliff’s observation about the group’s biased “definition” of “ex-gay” (which it puts in quotes; see graphic below or go HERE). See my in-depth AS report on Fox News and the NLGJA. Cliff’s story follows the video:
Their slogan is, “We’re here, we’re queer. We’re on deadline.” But on April 16th, when the National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA) held their 2015 “Headlines & Headliners” fundraiser in New York City, they were cheering a strip-tease performer from Chippendales.
Chippendales strippers usually perform for sex-starved women. This time the audience consisted of sex-starved gay men.
It was an eye-opening experience that included stars from CNN, MSNBC and Fox News. The emcee was Javier “Javi” Morgado, Executive Producer at CNN’s “New Day” program, who introduced the live auction of two VIP seats at the Las Vegas Chippendales show. He’s a former board member of the National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association. Tyson Beckford, who has joined Chippendales in Las Vegas as their celebrity guest host, participated in the live auction, encouraging higher bids.
I paid the $150 ticket price to get into the event. This isn’t the first time I had covered and filmed the event, and I never encountered any problems in the past. But this time the group told me to leave. My own video shows the confrontation.
Just “journalists”? The NLGJA puts “ex-gay” in quote marks in its tendentious “Stylebook” guiding reporters, editors and producers on how to handle “gay”-related news.
The National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association is financed by all of the major media organizations, from MSNBC and CNN on the left to Fox News on the right. It has issued a “Stylebook” to advise news organizations on how to use “lesbian, gay, bisexual & transgender terminology.” For example, you are not supposed to use the term “ex-gay,” even though thousands of former homosexuals do exist. The gay “Stylebook” warns that the term “ex-gay” is “mostly rooted in conservative religions” and has been “generally discredited as therapy in scientific circles.”
That this is complete nonsense can be demonstrated by the well-known case of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s wife, Chirlane McCray. For years she publicly called herself a lesbian, even writing an essay titled, “I Am a Lesbian.” But she got married to de Blasio and has two kids. The gay “Stylebook” is why you rarely see interviews with ex-gays on the air. They are not supposed to exist.

I look forward to this conference April 21st at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.–put on by my friend and conservative investigative journalist Cliff Kincaid. I will be speaking on: “Barack Obama and the Pro-LGBT Media’s War on Normal–and the Failure of Conservatives and Republicans to Respond.” See Cliff’s America’s Survival site HERE. Also, you can view Kincaid’s recent AS-TV interview with me HERE. AFTAH Board Member Matt Barber, creator of the outstanding site, Barbwire.com, will also be speaking at the AS event, as well James Simpson speaking on “Cultural Marxism.”
AFTAH will also be on hand for a press conference led by Faith-2-Action’sJanet Porter in front of the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday, April 27, and then we will be on hand testifying to the on the steps of the Court the next day, April 28, when the Justices–including two, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan, who should recuse themselves–will be hearing a landmark case on homosexuality-based “marriage.” Just remember this: No matter what the Supreme Court decides in June, homosexual behavior and “gay marriage” will always be wrong. –Peter LaBarbera, AmericansForTruth.org; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

New law explicitly denies conscience protections for small business owners; LGBT Lobby not appeased — demands full ENDA-type legislation for Indiana
Appeasement Emboldens ‘Gay’ Lobby: Graphic for homosexual activist group Human Rights Campaign demands more pro-homosexual legislation in Indiana following the Republican-led legislature’s and Gov. Mick Pence’s capitulation negating the state’s Religious Freedom law. Click on HRC.org graphic above to enlarge.
By Peter LaBarbera
In a stunning, politically-correct turnaround following a week of LGBT protests and media and business opposition, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence yesterday signed into law a pro-homosexual legislative “fix” of the state’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA)–effectively turning it into Indiana’s first statewide homosexual “rights” law.
The language of the revised RFRA crafted by Indiana’s Republican House and Senate leaders and signed into law by Gov. Pence stipulates that the new RFRA “does not authorize a provider to refuse to offer or provide services, facilities, use of public accommodation, goods, employment, or housing” to any Indiana citizen on the basis of “sexual orientation” and “gender identity”–in addition to the usual criteria such as race, sex and disability. [See the full language HERE.]
When asked specifically at a press conference yesterday if the revised RFRA legislation could be used to defend the besieged owners of an Indiana pizza shop who told a reporter that theoretically they would not serve a homosexual “wedding,” Indiana House Speaker Brian Bosma said:
“We can unequivocally say that RFRA cannot be used to discriminate against anyone.”
The law still protects churches and religious, non-profit organizations from being forced to participate in homosexual “weddings”–but not everyday small businessmen like the owners of the Indianapolis cookie stand “Just Cookies.” In 2012, the Christian owners of Just Cookies declined on principle to make “rainbow cookies” for a homosexual student group at Purdue University-Indianapolis. “Gay’ activists led a campaign against the company using Indianapolis’ “sexual orientation” statute; ultimately the owners settled with the city without paying damages.

WARNING: Offensive Descriptions of Homosexual Perversions
“Think twice about mixing alcohol and/or recreational drugs with sex. They can reduce your ability to make good decisions and can lead to risky behavior—like having sex without a condom.
“Limit your number of partners. You can lower your risk for STDs if you only have sex with one person who only has sex with you.”–“CDC Fact Sheet: What Gay, Bisexual and Other Men Who Have Sex with Men Need to Know About Sexually Transmitted Diseases,” last updated Nov. 13, 2014
If you haven’t noticed, most of the media debate surrounding homosexuality–insofar as the media even consider there to be a legitimate “debate”–centers around “marriage” and monogamy. Precious little attention is given to the actual set of behaviors that not only has made–especially male homosexuality–a dangerous lifestyle, but which also provides evidence that homosexualism is precisely what moralists say it is: wrong, perverse and destructive behavior.
Homosexual institutions, organizations and “gay” sex businesses actively recruit young people to join their ranks. Catering to male homosexual sex is big business. Below we have a particularly wicked institution, Steamworks–a Chicago homosexual bathhouse where men go for indiscriminate, anonymous sexual encounters with other men–trying to lure college boys to its debauched premises. This ad ran last week (March 21-29) on the Chicago Steamworks website:
Wanted: Young Men: Web ad for the Chicago homosexual bathhouse “Steamworks”–part of a North American chain–advertises a “Student Discount” for Spring Break 2015.
AFTAH has called for the closure of homosexual bathhouses in the interest of protecting the public’s health–e.g., women who are infected with HIV by male spouses who secretly engage in homosexual acts on the “down low. ” And we have reported on this particular Chicago bathhouse before. It sits in a large, nondescript building on Halsted Street in the heart of the city’s homosexual “Boystown” neighborhood (officially demarcated with “gay” rainbow pillars lining the streets). In fact, about a decade ago, I joined some hardy souls in a late-night “protest/Christian witness” outside this bathhouse.
For years, Steamworks has participated in the annual Chicago homosexual “Pride” festivities. It is part of a North American chain of homosexual bathhouses–others are located in Berkeley, California, Seattle, Washington–and in Canada in Toronto, Ontario and Vancouver, British Columbia.
What goes on in a bathhouse? I can only know from reading accounts by people who have been there: men young and old pay to get in. They buy a locker for their clothes–$5 off the usual price with a student ID, according to the “Spring Break”ad–and then walk around in a towel, which of course makes it easier to engage in sodomies with complete strangers. Customers can pay extra for a private room.
There is a sauna, showers and hot tub–and surely sodomitic acts occur in all three. Homosexual pornography spews from TVs throughout the building to stoke the hyper-sexual, orgiastic atmosphere. I cannot imagine the hygienic violations at a place like Steamworks but it is telling that in online reviews of this and other “gay” sex clubs, men complain about sticky floors.
The depraved and vile goings-on in bathhouses predictably contribute to the astronomically high rates of STD rates among homosexual men, but the response of government health bureaucrats and researchers to the crisis seems to be to use the bathhouses and “gay” sex clubs as distribution points for condoms and “safer sex” information–rather than to close them down or at least regulate them more tightly. That’s sort of like passing out anti-gambling literature at a racetrack but it has been the politically correct “safer sex” mentality for decades.
