This is the third and final part of AFTAH’s interview with Peter Sprigg, the Family Research Council’s top expert on the homosexual agenda. This interview [click HERE to listen] was recorded Thursday, June 28, 2012. AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera and John Kirkwood of Grace Gospel Fellowship Church in Bensenville, Illinois, spend much of the program discussing Sprigg’s excellent brochure, “The Top Ten Myths About Homosexuality.” – including a section on the “born gay” myth and his “Myth Number 8: Homosexuals are no more likely to molest children than heterosexuals.” Note: you can listen to Part One of the Sprigg interview HERE and Part Two HERE.

CHICAGO—The discovery that former Penn State University defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky has been molesting boys as young as 10 years old – and that university officials including head coach Joe Paterno did not do more to apprehend this predator – has shocked America. Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH), said the scandal exposes the continuing problem of homosexual predators in society. He offers the following observations related to the PSU scandal:
Many openly homosexual (“gay”) men, like CNN anchor Don Lemon, were molested as boys or experienced abnormally early sexualization. Yet many of these same men do NOT see their boyhood victimization at the hands of homosexual male predators as causing their homosexuality. (This is due partly to the success of the modern “gay” movement that falsely ascribes “gayness” to a person’s (innate) identity, and emphasizes the ambiguous notion of “sexual orientation” as opposed to behavior that is sinful, destructive and changeable.)
Thus, how many boy victims of homosexual predator Sandusky will end up believing that being homosexual (“gay”) is “who they are”? How many will struggle with sexual identity issues? And how many will be told by LGBT advocates and liberal-minded people just to “accept being gay” as “who they are” because they were “born that way”?
A Special Appeal by Peter LaBarbera, President, Americans For Truth
Walt Heyer, here shown as he is today living as a man, is helping gender-confused men and women avoid the mistake he made of undergoing "gender reassignment surgery." AFTAH's four-part interview with Walt greatly expanded awareness of his ministry.

Transsexuals Need Christ, NOT “Sex Change” Surgery
Recently I had the pleasure of doing an in-depth, four-part radio interview with Walt Heyer, a Christian man and FORMER transsexual who once lived as a “woman” named “Laura” (see before-and-after photos above). Walt had the Gender Reassignment Surgery – yes, the one that makes men wince at the mere thought of it. (It is frequently called a “sex-change” operation even though, as Walt stresses, a person cannot change their biological sex.)
Walt discovered too late that finally “becoming Laura,” as it were, through a body-disfiguring operation didn’t solve his severe “gender” problem. But thank God he ultimately DID find healing through the grace of the Lord — who labored through faithful and loving Christians who stood by Walt and helped restore him to the man he was created to be. Now Walt has dedicated the rest of his life to helping others avoid this awful surgery and the “sex-change regret” that he had; instead, he directs them to the healthy CHANGE available through Jesus Christ.
Walt Heyer as “Laura,” his former fantasy-female identity. Heyer underwent radical “gender reassignment surgery” but now warns others not to undergo the disfiguring operation.
This interview with Matt Barber [click HERE to listen] – AFTAH Board Member and Liberty Counsel Director of Cultural Affairs — was pre-recorded and aired August 27, 2011. Barber recently attended (with Dr. Judith Reisman) the “B4U-Act” pro-pedophile conference in Baltimore. He and AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera discuss the proceedings of this shocking event for “Minor-Attracted Persons” (read: pedophiles). Barber says one of the strategies for normalizing pedophilia is to “couch everything in the credibility of science.” He cites as a “natural outgrowth of the homosexual activist movement” Johns Hopkins sexologist Dr. Fred Berlin’s call to declassify pedophilia as a mental disorder. He notes ominously the movement’s goal of classifying pedophilia as a “sexual orientation.”

Folks, we had a wonderful event with ex-lesbian Linda Jernigan Friday evening at AFTAH’s offices in Carol Stream, Illinois. We hope to have some YouTube videos of her talk up shortly. My favorite part of her talk is when Linda related how when she was a NEW EX-lesbian, her old homosexual friends told her that this was just a phase she was going through, and that she would soon revert back to lesbianism. Then, after a few more years, when they saw that wasn’t happening, the “gay” activists switched their “spin” to: “Well, Linda, you never really were a lesbian in the first place”! Now, that’s one way to win an argument! The homosexual crowd simply can’t deal with the reality that “gays” can change and leave their homosexuality behind (usually with God’s help). — Peter LaBarbera, www.aftah.org
Deluded out-and-proud ‘gays’ reject pedophilia as causing their sexual confusion
CNN evening anchor Don Lemon has declared his homosexuality — to the surprise of few who have followed his biased reporting on homosexuality issues – including his direct promotion of the “gay” activist political agenda. (In 2006, as a Chicago newsman for NBC5, Lemon hosted a fundraiser for Equality Illinois, a homosexual lobby group, thus violating the principle of journalistic non-involvement in politics.) In the 2010 CNN video below about the alleged pederastic activity of Atlanta mega-pastor Bishop Eddie Long[Read DL Foster's "Gay Christian Movement Watch" post on Bishop Long HERE.], Lemon reveals that he was molested as a boy (about 5:21 in the YouTube video). What is perplexing is that Lemon, like so many self-styled “gay” men, apparently does not view his molestation as a major causative factor in his homosexual identity and behavior. “People are going to say: ‘Oh, he was molested as a kid and now he is coming out [as homosexual].’ I get it,” Lemon told the New York Times dismissively, in discussing his new book. “Transparent,” in which he reveals his homosexuality. To me, there is no greater proof of the perverse self-deception of homosexuality than to behold how sexually confused adults incorporate their victimization at the hands of pedophiles into their out-and-proud “gay” identity. Which is to say — even before reading his book: ”Don, you are not ‘gay,’ but the victim of a homosexual child molester, who corrupted your mind, body and soul — and innocence — at a tender young age!” More on this later. – Peter LaBarbera, www.aftah.org
Come out Friday, June 17, 2011 to hear a wonderful testimony of God’s power to change people!
NOTE TO AFTAH SUPPORTERS: We’ve been trying to get ex-lesbian Linda Jernigan — a dynamite speaker wth a heart-warming Christian testimony — to AFTAH for a year, and it looks like it is finally going to happen! This talk was planned for a year ago, but Linda was called away on an emergency, and we never rescheduled it. We apologize for the (long) delay, but are thrilled that Linda will be with us to speak to one of the modern myths taking hold in America: that homosexuality is inherent and even something to be “proud” of. If you live in Chicagoland, come out to hear Linda tell her life story; you will not regret coming!
Linda will also speak on a new Illinois project that AFTAH is supporting: the Illinois Defense of Marriage Initiative (IDMI), which would put a Advisory Referendum on the ballot in 2012 in support of marriage as it really is: betweeen a man and a woman. See www.DefendMarriageIL.org or more details. — Peter LaBarbera, www.aftah.org
Former lesbian Linda Jernigan (right) presents on “What’s wrong with ‘Gay Pride.” Jernigan, a Christian evangelist (www.rescuinghomosexuals.net), is now 11 years “out” of the homosexual lifestyle. She will share from her life experiences, which include being seduced into the lesbian lifestyle as a preteen by an older woman who was supposed to be her “mentor.”
Watch Linda speak at our recent pro-traditional-marriage rally in Chicago:
Listen to Linda’s AFTAH Radio Hour Interview: Jernigan, based in Chicago, was interviewed for the Americans For Truth Hour last year. You can listen to Part One of the interview HERE, and Part Two HERE. All AFTAH interviews are archived on the AFTAH Hour web page.
