CHICAGO–Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH), issued the following statement on President Donald Trump’s announcement today that he will leave in place his predecessor Barack Obama’s pro-LGBT executive order for federal workers:
“This is the first sign we have that President Trump will be triangulating on homosexuality versus abortion. As exhilarated as we were to watch the Trump administration confidently and boldly stand for the protection of the unborn at the March for Life, we are now deeply disappointed that Mr. Trump has chosen to defend false LGBTQ ‘rights’ based on changeable homosexual and gender-confused behaviors.
“We understand that in many ways, Trump’s non-action in accepting Obama’s 2014 pro-LGBTQ executive order echoes the compromised culture. It might even be a politically savvy move to defend ‘gay’ and ‘transgender’ ‘rights’ while simultaneously being pro-life. However, it also lacks principle, as genuine rights—which come from God—can never be based on sinful, changeable and unnatural conduct proscribed in the Bible. Furthermore, homosexuality, like abortion, is inherently anti-life.
“We further understand that President Trump comes out of a New York City background in which he advocated for homosexual ‘rights.’ But to now use his bully pulpit to proclaim ‘rights’ and favored treatment based on a sexual sin and gender rebellion is wrong. (See Romans 1—which Obama pooh-poohed.) No matter how powerful the new president is, he, like Obama, is utterly powerless to change God’s eternal moral law.
“We call on all pro-family and pro-life groups to stay principled in their advocacy, and not to look the other way when Donald Trump stumbles on truth. We condemned Obama when he advanced a sin-based agenda in the name of ‘Equality.’ We must do no less with President Trump.”
“Life is winning,” says Pence. first VP to address annual March for Life in person
Vice President Mike Pence. Will the new administration reverse Obama’s immoral legacy on abortion and homosexualism? See AFTAH’s release on Trump and the evil SCOTUS Obergefell ruling HERE.
Wow, confident pro-life advocacy from the White House. What a welcome contrast to eight years of social leftism under Obama. We know that opposition to abortion does not automatically translate into resistance to the homosexual-bisexual-transgender agenda. But, pro-family folks, here is our mission field: the millions of Americans who stand up boldly for the unborn.
There is no true justice in defending life but not defending natural marriage, or not defending children against the push to indoctrinate them in aberrant sex and gender “identies” and “lifestyles.” We must not honor God by rallying to support innocent life but then dishonor Him by acquiescing to deviant reconfigurations of marriage and family. (Why again is Walmart selling Heather Has Two Mommies?) Rather, we must be all about the whole Truth. Remember that homosexualism, too, is anti-life.
As Vice President Pence stated, 44 years ago the Supreme Court turned away from the “timeless ideal” of the inalienable right to life. But just two years ago, the Court in its arrogance–helped by Obama’s treachery–turned away from God’s wonderful plan for marriage as uniting the sexes to create children and families. Pray and work for this new administration to roll back the previous White House’s evil abortion AND homosexualist agendas! –Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera
March for Life Remarks of Vice President Pence – As Prepared for Delivery
MARCH FOR LIFE
FRIDAY, JANUARY 27, 2017
As Prepared for Delivery –
On behalf of President Donald Trump, my wife Karen, and our daughter Charlotte, I’d like to welcome you all to Washington, D.C. for the 44th annual March for Life.
And I am deeply humbled to be the first Vice President of the United States to ever have the privilege to attend this historic gathering.
More than two-hundred and forty years ago, our Founders wrote words that have echoed through the ages.
They declared “these truths to be self-evident.” That we are, all of us, “endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights,” and “that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Forty-four years ago, our Supreme Court turned away from the first of these timeless ideals.
But today, three generations hence, because of all of you, and the many more who stand with us in marches just like this across this nation, life is winning in America again.
That is evident in the election of pro-life majorities in the Congress of the United States.
But it is no more evident than in the historic election of a president who stands for a stronger America, a more prosperous America, and a president who I proudly say stands for the right to life – President Donald Trump.
“You’re a bigot and an [a**hole],” lead protester yells at McCrory; state senator vows to pursues law criminalizing vengeful harassment of public servants
NC St. Sen. Dan Bishop wants to protect former public servants from being bullied and harassed by vengeful protesters.
Folks, all I can say is, thank God the “progressives” lost this election! Because they are out of control (cut to the 2:10 mark in Madonna’s vulgar and extremist women’s march speech HERE). Below is a YouTube video shot by a profane North Carolina revolutionary socialist named Udai Basavaraj.
On a visit to DC for the inauguration (and leftist feminist march) weekend, Basavaraj apparently led a harassing protest against former North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory–yelling “Shame on you, shame on you!” etc., at the recently defeated Republican because he signed the HB2 “bathroom” bill into law.
The cowardly ringleader (his face not shown) yells out at McCrory, calling him a “bigot and an [a**hole]!” Then, as reported below, “just after the one minute mark [and with McCrory and two women backed into a locked door], he says, “We’ve got you now.” Watch the creepy three-and-a-half minute video, then pass this story on.
HB2 requires that people use the restroom matching their biological sex. I suppose in the minds of these ideological bullies, supporting such a bill makes one a monster. More news and commentary after the video and jump:
Thankfully, there are still many patriots in this country like North Carolina State Senator Dan Bishop (R), who is as outraged as we at AFTAH are over these hateful fanatics. Sen. Bishop wants to do something to protect people like McCrory, and he is disgusted with the neutral, innocuous way in which the Charlotte Observer newspaper reported this outrageous episode. I will add that homosexual activist publications like LGBTQNation seem to have no problem with it.
Hmmm. Can you imagine the media outrage if a screaming crowd of “conservatives” cornered a few homosexuals into a closed alley?
As Sen. Bishopwrites, “One also wonders if the mob fell upon the former governor by coincidence or if they stalked him.” Note the young woman scurrying uncomfortably (with her face away from the camera) from the approaching gaggle of screaming protesters. She is obviously scared. The lead LGBTQ protester-bully (Basavaraj?) screaming “shame on you!” clearly has no regard for the fear that he and his “mob” of yelling activists are inducing in her–as they pin their targets against a locked door.
After all, in the leftist scheme of things, the end–in this case, humiliating and intimidating Christian “haters” and “transphobes”–justifies the means. And “bigotry” knows no gender, right?
Think about this: is the modern “LGBTQ” activist phenomenon a “New Civil Rights Movement”–or rather a spoiled Sin Movement so steeped in its own self-rationalizing ideology and warped self-righteousness that it is willing even to scare a young woman if that’s what it takes to achieve its unattainable goal of “equality”?
Of course, many homosexuals would share my outrage at this despicable conduct. This is an extreme case, but all homosexual activists are compelled to sacrifice some social good, or some transcendent truth–e.g., about the essence of marriage itself–to serve their aberrant, self-justifying worldview. The more power they achieve, the more the War on Normal (which is actually a futile fight against our Creator) is ratcheted up. And the more innocent casualties mount.
Although it must not undermine the First Amendment, we hope Sen. Bishop succeeds in his bid to protect public servants from overt harassment. Stay tuned. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera
Homosexual and transgender activists in the District of Columbia hold a “Queer Dance Party” protest against Vice-President-elect Mike Pence Wednesday night. The vulgar protest was widely covered by media. Watch MRC video HERE. Click on photo to enlarge.

Video: LGBT Activists Tell ‘Daddy’ Pence ‘Stop the Hate! F–k You!’
By Sarah Stites and Katie Yoder, January 19, 2017, MRC NewsBusters
On Wednesday night, an estimated crowd of 200 queer folks and LGBT activists shook their booties and danced their way to VP-elect Mike Pence’s neighborhood. And the media were all over it.
“We are here tonight to send a clear message to Daddy Pence that we will not tolerate bigotry and hate in our country,” yelled organizer Firas Nasr amidst cheers at the protest gathering point. “We are here today to take the streets as our dance floor,” he continued. “Through dance, we choose to embrace one another, we choose to choose love over hate!”

It’s time to stop Political Correctness and Make ‘All Families Proud Again,’ Griggs Urges
No Story Here? People like Christopher Doyle, who overcame the pull of homosexuality, are often blacked out by the liberal media, who have become cheerleaders for all things “gay” and “trans.” Doyle, who is now happy in a natural married with children, founded Voice of the Voiceless, which, like PFOX, defends the rights of former homosexuals.
“Progressive activists are attempting to criminalize the simple act of seeking help – and assisting – with unwanted same-sex desires.”—PFOX
ALEXANDRIA, Va. – “President Trump has an excellent opportunity to ‘make America great again’ by making all families proud again,” said Parents andFriends of Ex-Gays and Gays (PFOX) Executive Director Regina Griggs.
“PFOX extends a warm welcome to new President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, and wishes them many blessings as they begin a new era. As a group that serves families dealing with loved ones who are caught up in homosexuality, transgenderism and other temptations, we at PFOX are hopeful that the new administration will be open to hearing the accounts of people who have been systematically denied acknowledgement of their existence – ex-gays and ex-transgenders.
“For too long, the iron grip of political correctness and media bias have kept the truth from the American people – that many people have overcome unwanted [same-sex] desires and gone on to lead fuller, happier lives.
“There is a concerted, profoundly unAmerican campaign to criminalize counseling aimed at helping people with their desire to change. At PFOX, we believe in unconditional love, and also client self-determination and the freedom of therapists to provide counseling that does not violate their beliefs. Unfortunately, progressive activists are attempting to criminalize the simple act of seeking help – and assisting – with unwanted same-sex desires.
“Many ex-gays once wrongly believed that they were born gay and had no hope for change. But through faith experiences and counseling, they discovered that overcoming unwanted same sex attraction is possible and science has proven homosexuality is not genetic. Now, they deserve to have their stories told, and their struggle for dignity and freedom respected from the Oval Office on down.”
“Petty, mean, spoiled, classless, hateful, intolerant, morally corrupt: LGBTQ leftists throw “queer” party outside Pence’s temporary DC home.”
The most ironic line from the protesters in this video is when the guy yells out, “We choose love over hate!” Are you kidding me? Vice President Mike Pence, a very decent man, has been on the receiving end of a non-stop barrage of LGBTQ activist and “progressive” *hate* since Trump picked him as running-mate. Thank God these leftists lost on Nov. 8. American needs a very long break from their self-righteous, destructive foolishness. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera
MRCTV video description:
WARNING: explicit language. MRCC covered the “Queer Dance Party” through Mike Pence’s neighborhood Wednesday night. WATCH: We caught on camera everything from “f*ck you” interviews to vandalism to poking fun/dancing circles around a lone Trump supporter.
Folks, I saw this on Twitter. The conservative news site Hawaii Free Press identifies the Ebony issue in which this advice column by Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. appeared as January 1958. HFP, citing CNN, offers the full Q & A with King, which we have reprinted under the graphic. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; @PeterLaBarbera
Full text of MLK Ebony column:
Question: My problem is different from the ones most people have. I am a boy, but I feel about boys the way I ought to feel about girls. I don’t want my parents to know about me. What can I do? Is there any place where I can go for help?
Answer: Your problem is not at all an uncommon one. However, it does require careful attention. The type of feeling that you have toward boys is probably not an innate tendency, but something that has been culturally acquired. Your reasons for adopting this habit have now been consciously suppressed or unconsciously repressed. Therefore, it is necessary to deal with this problem by getting back to some of the experiences and circumstances that lead to the habit. In order to do this I would suggest that you see a good psychiatrist who can assist you in bringing to the forefront of conscience all of those experiences and circumstances that lead to the habit. You are already on the right road toward a solution, since you honestly recognize the problem and have a desire to solve it.
Once you destroy the male-female boundary for marriage that has stood since the beginning of time, all boundaries are open to question. Ditto for male, female and “gender identities.” — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH
Why Can’t I Marry the Robot I Love? The Rise of Robosexuals
Do people have the right to marry the one they love, even if the one they love is a robot? If not, why not? After all, in the words of Lilly from France, who has fallen in love with her robot, “We don’t hurt anybody; we are just happy.”
Isn’t that what matters in the end, that people are happy?
Lilly calls herself a “proud robosexual,” and she fully plans on marrying her robot, whom she named InMoovator.
As explained in the Daily Mail, “Lilly is reportedly engaged to the robot and says they will marry when human-robot marriage is legalized in France.”
But why should this surprise us? People have not only married their same-sex spouses (which has the merit of joining together fellow-humans, albeit completely opposite to the God-ordained male-female pattern), but they have married animals and inanimate objects and, with increasing frequency, married themselves.
Indeed, it was just a few days ago that Good Housekeeping—not some radical, far-out, tabloid—ran the story, “WHY I MARRIED MYSELF. Self-marriage is a small but growing movement around the world.”
