I hope Bryan Fischer is wrong and that Justice Ginsburg was instead defiantly affirming the fiction of a “Constitutional right” to homosexual “marriage” at the immoral ceremony over which she presided. We’ll know soon. – Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera
Ginsburg Tips Her Hand – The Fix Is in on Sodomy-Based “Marriage”
It’s time for social conservatives to prepare for a post-apocalyptic world. The Supreme Court will issue a ruling in late June imposing sodomy-based “marriage” on the entire country. It’s a done deal. The fix is in. You can take it to the bank.
The Supreme Court heard oral arguments on April 28, and then, according to custom, immediately adjourned to vote. So the results were known to the other members of the Court by close of business that day. The only remaining matter was for Chief Justice Roberts to assign the writing of the majority opinion.
Under normal circumstances, the results of these immediate Supreme Court votes are a jealously guarded secret. No one is supposed to breathe a word. No one is supposed to know the outcome until the ruling is actually released, which will almost certainly be at the very end of the session in late June.
But we now know the result of the vote beyond any shadow of doubt. How do we know? Ruth Bader Ginsburg told us over the weekend.
New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd was a guest last Sunday at a homosexual “wedding” ceremony presided over by Justice Ginsburg herself.
The wedding took place in a glitzy setting, the Anderson House in the Embassy Row neighborhood, which houses a club for descendants of soldiers, both French and American, who fought in the Revolutionary War.
Here are the telling paragraphs from Dowd’s column (emphasis mine):
“But the most glittering moment for the crowd came during the ceremony. With a sly look and special emphasis on the word ‘Constitution,’ Justice Ginsburg said that she was pronouncing the two men married by the powers vested in her by the Constitution of the United States.
“No one was sure if she was emphasizing her own beliefs or giving a hint to the outcome of the case the Supreme Court is considering whether to decide if same-sex marriage is constitutional.
“But the guests began applauding loudly, delighted either way. Justice Ginsburg, who has officiated at same-sex weddings in the past, also seemed delighted…”
Well, the guests may have pretended to be unsure of the significance of Ginsburg’s words, but we don’t have to be. When she emphasized the word “Constitution” and did so with a “sly look,” Ginsburg was most emphatically not “giving a hint” about the outcome of the Supreme Court’s vote, she was telling us as plainly as possible.
Ginsburg was informing us that the Supreme Court has already decided that marriage based on what Massachusetts’ state law still calls the “abominable and detestable crime against nature” is now a right guaranteed in the Constitution.
LGBT Lobby and liberals in a panic as Texas conservatives go on offense against the homosexual/gender-confusion agenda
Dr. Steven Hotze
(c) State or local funds may not be used for an activity that includes the licensing or support of a same-sex marriage. (d) A state or local governmental employee may not recognize, grant, or enforce a same-sex marriage license. (e) State or local funds may not be used to enforce an order requiring the issuance or recognition of a same-sex marriage license. – Language from Texas bill HB 4105, the “Preservation of State Sovereignty and Marriage Act”
Folks, don’t you love how conservative Texans are not afraid of Big Gay Inc, or the Supreme Court, for that matter? I was just informed by my friend Dr. Steven Hotze, president of Conservative Republicans of Texas that he expects HB 4105 [see text of bill here] to pass out of the Texas House today (Wednesday). Then it will go on to the Senate. If passed there, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is expected to sign it into law.
LGBT activists and pro-homosexuality liberals (that’s redundant these days) are freaking out over HB 4105 and other Texas bills designed to thwart the homosexual/gender-confusion agenda. (See MSNBC hyperventilating HERE.) They simply are not used to conservatives playing offense! The following e-alert was sent out today by Dr. Hotze. By the way, I had the opportunity to meet with Dr. Hotze in D.C., as we were both speakers at Janet Porter’s“Restrain the Judges” press conference in front of the Supreme Court [watch the video HERE]. He is an awesome culture warrior with a big heart for God’s Truth. Thank God conservatives are starting to challenge judicial supremacy. – Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera
Dr. Hotze writes:
TAKE ACTION: There are 90 Republican state representatives who have authored and co-authored HB 4105. Call your state senator as well and ask him to vote for HB 4105 after it passes the House and is sent to the Senate. Call Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick at 512-463-0001 and email him at firstname.lastname@example.org; and let him know that you want him to pass HB 4105 when it arrives in the Senate this week. Lt. Governor Patrick needs to hear from you that you want this bill passed this session. The session ends May 31st so time is of the essence. Take action today!

The Texas Marriage Amendment passed with an overwhelming 76% of the electorate in the general election in 2005. The Texas Marriage Amendment of the Texas Constitution, Article 1, Section 32, provides that: “Marriage in this state shall consist only of the union of one man and one woman.”

Folks, it was an honor to speak at my friend Cliff Kincaid’s America’s Survival conference on “Cultural Marxism”–along with Kincaid, former U.N. Amb. Alan Keyes, Jim Simpson, and Matt Barber, AFTAH Board Member and founder of Barbwire.com. This information-rich event was held at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., on April 21, 2015. My talk is below. AFTAH will post each of the presentations, but for now you can see them at AS’s YouTube channel. Thanks to Cliff for organizing this event. Truth remains the best answer to the proliferation of lies from the pro-LGBT Left.– Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH
The following is the press conference organized by my friend, Janet Porter, of Faith2Action Ministries. It was held directly in front of the U.S. Supreme Court April 27, 2015, the day before oral arguments at the Court on legalization of homosexual “marriage.” Congratulations to Janet and Dr. Steve Hotze of Conservative Republicans of Texas for putting on this fine event. It was a privilege to stand with these awesome leaders in defense of genuine marriage. – Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH

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.”

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.

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

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. [To read about other conscience victims of the homosexual agenda, see this WND Whistleblower article by the author.]
Our good friend and AFTAH Board Matt Barber just posted the following open letter to Indiana Gov. Mike Pence–concerning proposed changes to the state’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act–on his excellent website, Barbwire.com. Is it actually possible that we will see a pro-family “religious freedom” law turned into a homosexual “special rights” law in Republican-run Indiana? Let’s pray that this does not happen and that Gov. Pence will not capitulate to the demands of an intolerant Sin Lobby. – Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; @PeterLaBarbera
Dear Governor Pence,
Well, I guess “the fix is in.”
Time is short so I’ll be very direct. This past week or so you’ve experienced the visceral wrath of the organized left, spearheaded by homosexual activist extremists. You’re not used to it. We Christian advocates for religious liberty are. While their bark is loud, shrill and obnoxious, I assure you, it’s much worse than their bite. We are witnessing governance by mob rule. It’s tyranny of the minority and you’re letting it happen.
With all due respect, sir, show some moxie, would you? It wasn’t broken and the alleged “fix” that the Indiana legislature, at your request, has proposed to the Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), will destroy the law beyond all recognition. In fact, it will turn it into the “RFDA” – the “Religious Freedom Destruction Act.” No bill at all would have been better than this anti-Christian, sexual anarchist disaster.
What was intended as a shield to every American’s First Amendment-guaranteed religious liberty, as proposed, will now become a sword used to destroy it. What was designed to defend people of faith against being discriminated against and bullied will, instead, codify anti-religious discrimination and bullying into law. It will unconstitutionally force people of faith, under penalty of law, to affirmatively violate their sincerely held religious conscience. It has been turned into a weapon that compels people of faith to disobey God or face government sanction.
This is unacceptable.
As the American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer correctly notes, “The revised language has now been released, and it’s even worse than we thought. The new language forces Christian bakers to bake cakes in violation of their faith and conscience. Gov. Pence tried to fix something that wasn’t broken, and he broke it. The ‘cure’ in this case is far worse than the non-existent disease. Gov. Pence must veto this misbegotten piece of legislation.”
