Folks, 2014 was another year of intense promotion by the media of all things “gay” and “transgender.” One beneficiary of that was an articulate college football player named Michael Sam, who became the first openly homosexual (“out”) man to be drafted by the NFL. When that moment came, Sam kissed his homosexual lover, Vito Cammisano, on national TV, sparking an awkward national debate about homosexual displays of affection.
Many–dare I say most–people did not care for the televised same-sex kiss, but few pundits took the principled, common-sense position of AFTAH: of course we treat homosexual PDAs (public displays of affection) differently than, say, a football player kissing his girlfriend on the field because (say it with me): HOMOSEXUAL BEHAVIOR, A SIN, IS ALWAYS WRONG, whereas heterosexuality is natural and normal.
Too many conservatives, including Bill O’Reilly and other talkers on Fox News [see my America's Survival report on Fox News' pro-"gay" bias HERE] allowed themselves to be hamstrung by political correctness to the point where they failed to admit the obvious: homosexuality is not normal; it’s a perversion–so we treat it differently than everyday (not excessive) displays of affection between a man and a woman. That’s especially the case when it comes to subjecting innocent children to the celebration of immorality that grieves God’s heart [See Romans 1 and 1 Corinthians 6:9-11]. [Note: see this biased AP piece on Sam curiously re-published by the "conservative" TheBlaze.com.]
Since it’s New Year’s Eve, we’re having a little fun here at AFTAH: below is a poem I wrote playing loosely off the lyrics, rhythm and meter of Dr. Seuss’ “Green Eggs and Ham” (you know, the one with “Sam I am”). Although it’s light, the message is serious: public celebration of perversion is indecent–and another harmful and obnoxious by-product of “gay” and “same-sex marriage” advocacy. Sure, I’ll be chided by humorless homosexuals and “progressive” hacks who bristle at anything characterizing homosexuality as immoral, destructive and changeable. But who cares: LGBTQ activists attack, slander and lie about AFTAH all the time anyway. So enjoy…or not. Happy New Year! – Peter LaBarbera, Americans For Truth; email@example.com
P.S. On a very serious note, please pray for Michael Sam and others caught up in homosexuality, that they would accept Christ and become overcomers who leave their sinful lifestyle behind, as many others have [see this "Ex-Gay Truth" site].
I Saw the Kiss by Michael Sam. It Made Me Mad. He Kissed a Man!

I saw the kiss by Michael Sam..
It made me mad–he kissed a man!
That’s something I don’t want to see
It’s wrong, unnatural, and it’s not just me.
Many now say, “Homosexuality is OK.”
But God says there’s a better way.
He made men for women, and women for men.
So why are “gays” so prideful then?
Please, no public same-sex kisses, Michael Sam.
We don’t want to see this man-on-man!
Not in a boat, not in a car
This public perversion goes too far!
Not in the store or on a bus
This same-sex stuff, it brings disgust.
Not at the movies or on TV
It’s wrong, unnatural, can’t you see?!
I don’t want my kids to think it’s right
So please, please, keep it out of sight!
Why is it always in our faces?
This sin–celebrated in so many places?
Even at football and baseball games
We have to pretend homosexuality’s the same.
Young kids exposed to same-sex acts,
When parents just wanna’ have fun and relax.
“Well,” said Michael Sam, “let me ask you this:
“Do you get mad when men and women kiss?!”
Man and woman, that’s Nature’s way.
As long as there’s not too much PDA.
