Help AFTAH Counter the ‘LGBTQ’ Revolution!

Saturday, December 31st, 2016

We are hated by the LGBTQ Lobby because we expose their lies

Perhaps as a homosexual man Peter Thiel does not understand this, but most women do not want men with penises wearing dresses (like this fellow at the recent "International Mr. Leather" perversion-fest in Chicago) to occupy a restroom with them.

Truth in Love: AFTAH reached out in June 2016 with truth in Christian love to men like this attending the annual Chicago sadomasochism perversion celebration known as “International Mr. Leather”. Now that homosexuality is normalized to many millions of Americans, LGBTQ activists and the media are working to promote the acceptance of related perversions like S&M and “pansexuality.” Donate to AFTAH safely online here.

Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) is one of the few organizations in the world that directly fights and exposes the homosexual-bisexual-lesbian-transgender-sadomasochism-pansexual-[insert latest perversion here] agenda.

Please help us defend moral Truth and expose the reality of the destructive anti-Christian LGBTQueer movement. You help make our work possible with your donations–go HERE to give safely online with our user-friendly form!

________________

AFTAH is the conscience of the pro-family movement on the “gay agenda.”  We simply don’t do “PC” (Political Correctness).  For example, we don’t pretend like some other pro-family groups that the homosexual “marriage” debate is somehow NOT about homosexuality (of course it is)

AFTAH exposes many of the hard truths about the “gay” and “trans” movement that most groups and ministries shy away from. [See our photo-story on New York City’s 2015 homosexual-bisexual-transgender-sadomasochism “pride’ parade–sponsored in part by Walmart.]

And while we love sinners as Jesus does, and condemn real “hate” (toward anyone), we do not “love” or respect homosexualism, transsexualism–or any other branch of deviant “gay” sexual ideology and behavior–which are at war with God’s plan for sex, marriage and family.

Sin is neither a “civil right” nor the basis for a healthy identity, which is why AFTAH celebrates godly EX-“gay” change, while the leftist, corrupt media kowtows to Big Gay Inc by ignoring the wonderful stories of people “coming out” FROM homosexuality. (Of course, the same media love to do sympathetic puff-pieces about people “coming out” publicly INTO homosexuality.)

Hating AFTAH for Telling the Truth

twitter_alex_matheny_from_pretty_girl_to_pretend_man_aftah-graphic

LGBTQ ‘Progressivism’ Harms Youth: Our hearts break for the young people who are being led to harm their God-given bodies in pursuit of a fantasy to live as the opposite sex. Click on photo to enlarge.

We at Americans For Truth are on the receiving end of a lot of leftist hate simply because we fight against the trendy lies of the LGBTQueer movement–which these days center around extreme gender confusion.

Recently, a young female-to-“male” transgender activist named Alex Matheny threatened to sue me because Americans For Truth published ‘before-and-after’ photos of her tragic gender “transition.”

This deeply confused young woman had her healthy breasts surgically removed to look like the man she can never be. She chronicled her body changes online leading up to and after the operation destroying her healthy female breasts. AFTAH simply published Alex’s photos of herself that she had posted on Twitter. That’s called free speech, but Alex was irate and threatened to sue us. Please pray for her.

Thank you for helping to make our unique work possible! God bless you. — Peter LaBarbera, president, AFTAH; americansfortruth@gmail.com

2016: The Year Walmart Went 100-Percent ‘Gay’

Saturday, December 31st, 2016

Walmart funds leftist homosexual groups and perverse LGBTQueer “pride” parades, markets “gay” products like “Heather Has Two Mommies”

Walmart Sells Homosexual Kiddie Book

Walmart Now Markets Homosexuality to Kids: Walmart’s online store sells the new edition of “Heather Has Two Mommies,” a “children’s” picture book that promotes the normalcy of lesbian parenting. Above is a screen shot of Walmart.com. The retail giant now scores a “100 percent” on Human Rights Campaign’s rigged “Corporate Equality Index”–which punishes corporations for giving to pro-family organizations, yet rewards them for funding LGBTQ activist groups. To receive a “100-percent” score, corporations must be committed to funding grotesque, body-disfiguring transsexual “sex-reassignment surgeries” as part of their company’s “health” insurance plan for employees. Take Action: contact Walmart HERE or call 800-925-6278). Click to enlarge.

“Interestingly, unlike many other corporations adopting pro-homosexual policies, Walmart plays both sides of the social-issues “culture war.” It does this by cultivating good relations with both homosexual activists like [Human Rights Campaign] and Christian conservative organizations like American Family Association (AFA).”

Folks, below is a piece I wrote earlier this month for LifeSiteNews, an excellent pro-family and pro-life website (subscribe to their e-list HERE). Walmart’s capitulation to the demands of the leftist, anti-Christian–and very pro-Democrat–Human Wrongs Rights Campaign (HRC) is the latest sign of how strategically important major corporations have become in driving the “gay-transgender” revolution.

If Walmart can go “all gay,” any corporation can, and sadly the Bentonville, Arkansas-based retail giant’s moral capitulation shows how complete and entrenched America’s godless homosexual revolution has become. Nevertheless, liberal (pro-) LGBTQ “snowflakes” in post-Trump distress everywhere are acting as if the USA is on the verge of becoming like Saudi Arabia–despite Trump being the most PRO-homosexual Republican presidential nominee ever!

Walmart’s new, immoral “values”: Walmart fielded a contingent in New York City’s 2015 homosexual-transgender-sadomasochism (“gay”) Pride parade, despite its sexually perverse nature. See this AFTAH photo-story and other photos below.

As it has in recent years, Walmart again sponsored New York City’s homosexual-transgender-sadomasochism (LGBTQueer) “pride” parade in 2016 (see page 35 of the “NYC Pride Guide”; also, see AFTAH’s photo-story exposé on the 2015 NYC “pride” parade sponsored by Walmart). And Walmart was among the corporate sponsors at a far-left-biased “International LGBT Leaders” conference (attended by this writer) in Washington, D.C., earlier this month, put on by the Gay and Lesbian Victory Institute.

Despite its pro-disordered-sex-and-gender “philanthropy,” Walmart received a “Nice” (not “Naughty”) rating from our friends at American Family Association for celebrating Christmas, and was praised as a “pro-religious liberty” company by AFA in 2015. That confused some AFA followers who noted Walmart’s newfound support of homosexual “marriage” post-Obergefell. Moreover, Walmart reportedly fought against a religious-freedom-protection bill in its home state of Arkansas (and in other states).

This scantily-dressed perv marched at the 2015 New York City homosexual-transgender-sadomasochism "gay" Pride parade, at which many young children were in attendance.

Walmart’s values? This nearly naked pervert marched in the 2015 New York City homosexual-transgender-sadomasochism (“gay”) Pride parade, at which many young children were in attendance. Click to enlarge photos.

Ironically, under HRC’s horribly skewed Corporate Equality Index (CEI), if Walmart were to give a direct grant to AFA (or Americans For Truth), it would LOSE 25 points and fall off the CEI’s “100-percent” list (see story below). Having the leftist HRC judge corporations on homosexual and “gender” issues is about as fair as having the far-left, pro-LGBTQ Southern Poverty Law Center serve as an arbiter of “hate.” Utterly absurd, and yet the corrupt media honor both rankings and report them as objective “news.”

I’ll say this: you have to hand it to Walmart’s executives: cynically playing both sides of the LGBTQ-vs.-the-natural-family “culture war” and seemingly getting away with it. Or will they? I suppose that’s up to pro-family Americans, who correctly understand that the homosexual/transgender social-legal revolution is incompatible with the First Amendment and freedom of conscience. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; @Peter LaBarbera

Why Not Talk About Sin in the Christmas Season?

Friday, December 30th, 2016

Jesus loves sinners, but He also hates sin. So should Christians, says AFTAH founder

No "Diversity" for Ex-Sin-Movement Advocates:

No “Diversity” for Ex-Sin-Movement Advocates: Charlene Cothran spent 29 years in the lesbian lifestyle and as a “gay” activist before repenting and giving her heart and life to Jesus Christ. But don’t look for her heartwarming story in the archives of the Oprah show–or on any other “mainstream” media network. Liberal “diversity” is a sham because the media and Hollywood, like the Left, are wholly committed to the LGBTQ agenda. See Charlene’s new pastoral ministry HERE, and AFTAH’s original article about her banquet presentation HERE.

The following is a Christmas essay I wrote for LifeSiteNews. A belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all! — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH

Bigot. Prude. Hater. Judger. Busy-body. Holier than thou. Fundamentalist. Hypocrite. Intolerant. Rigid. Bible thumper. “Christo-fascist.” “American Taliban.” Homophobe. Transphobe. Repressed homosexual. I’ve been called them all, like so many who dare to challenge the present sin-tolerant zeitgeist and purveyors of politically correct myths and lies.

Truth is, even with all our flaws, we are none of those. For the most part, Truth-tellers on sexual issues are merely trying to defend God’s honor and His revelation (the Bible) in a world that has left Jesus and Truth behind.

We know that although people can choose to embrace sinful lifestyles, they do not get to change the biblical sin standard of right and wrong. That is way above our pay grade as mere fallen creations of a holy God.

Jesus, Sin and Christmas

December 24, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — Like most people, I love the sentimental, cultural side of Christmas — the colored miniature lights (I still don’t know how to fix it when half the string goes bad); the Christmas tree (must be real); the Santa-themed movies like “Elf” (a family favorite). All that.

But the true glory and joy of the Christmas season is that it celebrates the coming of “the way, the truth and the life” — the One who is our eternal Savior and Judge of mankind; who defeated sin, Satan and death; and who reigns with His Father in Heaven forever and ever. The resurrected Messiah, Christ Jesus.

A lot more compelling than Santa Claus.

‘Gay Rights’ Laws Undermine Freedom, Professors’ Statement Says

Tuesday, December 20th, 2016

The following is a declaration signed by 75 religious and pro-family leaders,and academic VIPs, on the tyranny that flows from “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” laws. It is published by the Colson Center for Christian Worldview. To see the list of signers, and add your name in aupport of the declaration, go HERE:

Preserve Freedom, Reject Coercion

As Americans, we cherish the freedom to peacefully express and live by our religious, philosophical, and political beliefs—not merely to hold them privately. We write on behalf of millions of Americans who are concerned about laws that undermine the public good and diminish this freedom for individuals and organizations alike.

We affirm that every individual is created in the image of God and as such should be treated with love, compassion, and respect. We also affirm that people are created male and female, that this complementarity is the basis for the family centered on the marital union of a man and a woman, and that the family is the wellspring of human flourishing. We believe that it is imperative that our nation preserve the freedoms to speak, teach, and live out these truths in public life without fear of lawsuits or government censorship.

In recent years, there have been efforts to add sexual orientation and gender identity as protected classifications in the law—either legislatively or through executive action. These unnecessary proposals, often referred to as SOGI policies, threaten basic freedoms of religion, conscience, speech, and association; violate privacy rights; and expose citizens to significant legal and financial liability for practicing their beliefs in the public square. In recent years, we have seen in particular how these laws are used by the government in an attempt to compel citizens to sacrifice their deepest convictions on marriage and what it means to be male and female—people who serve everyone, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, but who cannot promote messages, engage in expression, or participate in events that contradict their beliefs or their organization’s guiding values.

Creative professionals, wedding chapels, non-profit organizations, ministries serving the needy, adoption agencies, businesses, schools, religious colleges, and even churches have faced threats and legal action under such laws for declining to participate in a same-sex wedding ceremony; for maintaining policies consistent with their guiding principles; and for seeking to protect privacy by ensuring persons of the opposite sex do not share showers, locker rooms, restrooms, and other intimate facilities. Under SOGI laws, people of good will can face personal and professional ruin, fines, and even jail time, and organizations face the loss of accreditation, licensing, grants, contracts, and tax-exemption.

SOGI laws empower the government to use the force of law to silence or punish Americans who seek to exercise their God-given liberty to peacefully live and work consistent with their convictions. They also create special preference in law for categories based on morally significant choices that profoundly affect human relations and treat reasonable religious and philosophical beliefs as discriminatory. We therefore believe that proposed SOGI laws, including those narrowly crafted, threaten fundamental freedoms, and any ostensible protections for religious liberty appended to such laws are inherently inadequate and unstable.

SOGI laws in all these forms, at the federal, state, and local levels, should be rejected. We join together in signing this letter because of the serious threat that SOGI laws pose to fundamental freedoms guaranteed to every person.

America has stood as a beacon of liberty to the world because our Constitution protects people’s freedom to peacefully—and publicly—work and live according to their convictions. We represent diverse efforts to contribute to the flourishing of our neighbors, communities, nation, and world. We remain committed to preserving in law and stewarding in action the foundational freedoms that make possible service of the common good, social harmony, and the flourishing of all.

Micah Clark on Pearl Harbor, FDR and the Leftward Drift of the Democratic Party

Wednesday, December 7th, 2016

pearl_harbor_painting

Micah Clark, president of American Family Association of Indiana, writes on this 75th anniversary of the Japanese sneak bombing attack that drew America into World War II that killed 2,403 Americans and wounded 1,143. It was FDR who famously called December 7th “a Day that will live in infamy” in his speech asking Congress for a Declaration of War against Japan. Clark writes:

“Re: As we remember Pearl Harbor Day (Dec. 7th)… FDR said:

“The world is too small to provide adequate living room for both Hitler and God. In proof of that, the Nazis have now announced their plan for enforcing their new German, pagan religion all over the world — a plan by which the Holy Bible and the Cross of Mercy would be displaced by Mein Kampf and the swastika and the naked sword.” President Franklin Roosevelt’s State of the Union Address, Jan 6, 1942

“…Not too bad for a liberal Democrat…Note in contrast how secular and far to the Left the Democrats are today. If a Republican said this today–even after a terrorist attack–he’d be blistered by every newspaper and TV talking head in America for mixing church and state.”
