Southwest Airlines Attempts to Disassociate Itself from ‘Gay Jesus’ Documentary, but Defends Sponsorship of Radical LGBTQ ‘Creating Change’ Conference

Friday, February 27th, 2015

LGBTQ Task Force gave “Leather Leadership” award to owner of Dallas homosexual bar that hosts monthly gathering for men who play-act as “dogs” in bizarre BDSM “puppy” fetish

The Leather Pride Movement: Men Play-acting as dogs.

Human Degradation 101–Men as “Dogs”–Celebrated by the LGBTQ Task Force: Men play-acting as dogs in the twisted world of BDSM (Bondage, Discipline, Sadism, Masochism). The above graphic (click to enlarge) is from the website of a homosexual “leather bar,” the Dallas Eagle, co-owned by Mark Frazier. The “DFW ” in “DFW Pups” stands for “Dallas-Ft. Worth.” The recent LGBTQ Task Force “Creating Change” conference honored Frazier with its “Leather Leadership” award [see p. 40 on the CC  program PDF]. Southwest Airlines (SWA) is a “National Corporate Partner” of the Task Force, which puts on Creating Change every year. So far SWA is refusing to distance itself from CC or the LGBTQ Task Force. Contact SWA HERE or by phone at 214-792-4000.

TAKE ACTION: Contact Southwest Airlines: Dallas HQ (CEO Gary Kelly): 214-792-4000 (hit ‘0’ and make your opinion known to the operator before you get routed to Customer Relations). Email SWA: SWACustomerRelations@wnco.com

“We will not support Southwest or any sponsor of this conference until they apologize to all Christians and change their stance on this situation.  Southwest and other corporate businesses chose to support a segment of the U.S. population that comprises less than 2% while managing to offend no less than 20% of the population.” – Kim Eith, AFTAH Reader

Folks, we have heard back from a few of you who have contacted Southwest (and other major corporations) that sponsored a radical LGBTQ conference in Denver February 4-8. The “Creating Change” conference for homosexual, transgender and other sexual activists screened the documentary, “Corpus Christi: Playing with Redemption,” celebrating a play in which the Jesus Christ character is cast as a homosexual who once committed sodomy with Judas and who performs a homosexual “marriage” between two of his male “disciples” [see AFTAH story HERE].

Apparently, Southwest representatives are telling people that AFTAH gave out false information and that SWA did not (directly) sponsor the “Gay Jesus” documentary, only the larger “Creating Change” conference. This is a classic dodge, although it is also a tacit admission by SWA that the “Corpus Christi” documentary is highly offensive to people of faith.

Of course, as AFTAH wrote earlier, the blasphemous film was just one item in a conference filled with the celebration of extreme behaviors—ranging from “polyamory” (multiple-partner sexual unions); to “kink” (sadomasochism); to extreme gender confusion; to the “queering” of Christianity (including a talk on the “biblical case for same-sex marriage”). You can read for yourself the full “Creating Change 2015” program HERE.

AFTAH reader Kim Eith (read her excellent correspondence with SWA below) has it exactly right: “sponsorship of that conference equates to sponsorship of all activities occurring at that conference.” Southwest needs to own their role in the “Creating Change” event in all its perverseness–including “Creating Change’s” honoring of a sadomasochist (Mark Frazier), who owns a “gay leather bar” in Dallas that caters to a perversion known as “puppy play” (see graphic above). Below is one of those weird, nonjudgmental descriptions in left-biased Wikipedia of “Puppy Play”–a perversion which, by the way, I witnessed firsthand last year at the San Francisco “Dore Alley” street fair:

In puppy play, or dog play, at least one of the participants acts out canine mannerisms and behaviors, which is sometimes associated with leather culture. If there is a dominant role it can be taken by a “handler”, “trainer”, “master”, or in the case of someone who still identifies as canine, an “alpha”. If there is a submissive this may be considered by a “pup” or a “dog”. …Other elements rooted in BDSM play involve bondage and restriction with collars, leashes, cages, and hoods, the pups hands are often covered in mitts, both sexual and non-sexual services are requested, and “training” may take place in order to teach commands. [Wikipedia entry on "Animal Roleplay"]

Sick stuff, to be sure–and glorified by the same National LGBTQ Task Force that proudly screened the “homosexual Jesus” documentary. Sadly, Southwest Airlines, based in Dallas, has not even come close to apologizing for its role in this uber-perverse, Christianity-bashing conference. Do the execs at SWA think we’re stupid, that we can’t read? Do they even know what sort of radical “Change” is advocated at the Task Force conferences? We must keep up the pressure on Southwest, Comcast/NBC, Wells Fargo and the other sponsors [contact info HERE].

We are indebted to Kim Eith for her smart advocacy below. Please read this correspondence and contact Southwest Airlines yourself using the contact info above. Thank you. – Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; americansfortruth@gmail.com.

Kim Eith’s Letter of AFTAH Describing her Complaint to Southwest Airlines [SWA online contact form HERE]:

To whom it may concern,

My husband and I sent separate emails to Southwest today. We also cancelled an upcoming flight with this airline today. I called Southwest on this date and received this response from the lady I spoke to:  ” There has been a misunderstanding. A Southwest corporate officer informed us today that there has been false accusations about Southwest and the LGBTQ conference. Southwest did not sponsor the documentary or film shown at the conference.”  My reply; “Southwest is a corporate sponsor, which is clearly indicated on the Create Change LGBTQ conference materials and therefore, any sponsorship of that conference equates to sponsorship of all activities occurring at that conference.”

As we stated in our email, we will not support Southwest or any sponsor of this conference until they apologize to all Christians and change their stance on this situation.  Southwest and other corporate businesses chose to support a segment of the U.S. population that comprises less than 2% while managing to offend no less than 20% of the population. People’s sexual preferences are personal and while my love of my fellow citizens, family and friends is not based upon personal views and practices, I will not stand by and watch others attempt to obliterate my Christian values, and especially my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. This was absolutely vile and despicable.

LaBarbera Statement on 42nd Anniversary of Roe v. Wade Decision Legalizing Abortion

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

HRC, National LGBTQ Task Force and other homosexual groups work hand-in-hand with Planned Parenthood and pro-abortion lobby

Planned Parenthood Activism: A day-long "institute" for LGBTQ activists held by the National LGBTQ Task Force's "Creating Change" conference, to be held in Denver next month, adopts Planned Parenthood tactics in the leftist crusade for "sexual freedom."

Learning Activism from Planned Parenthood: LGBT activists work hand-in-hand with the Abortion Lobby. This is a notice for a day-long “institute” for LGBTQ activists to be held at the National LGBTQ Task Force’s “Creating Change” 2015 conference; it adopts Planned Parenthood tactics in the leftist crusade for “sexual rights.” The world’s leading abortion provider is very active in promoting homosexuality and gender confusion–and even fringe sexual “lifestyles” like BDSM (Bondage & Discipline, Dominance & Submission, Sadism & Masochism)–to young people. View the full  151-page Creating Change 2015 program HERE; we added the emphasis to this item, which is found on page 66. Creating Change 2015 will be held next month in Denver. Click to enlarge.

AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera issued the following statement on January 22, 2015–the 42nd anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision, which, along with the companion case Doe v. Bolton, ushered in legalized abortion-on-demand as a privacy “right” across the United States:

“On this day marking the 42nd anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we remember and memorialize the unborn victims of abortion-on-demand. We stand with Americans and people the world over who are working to stop the ongoing massacre of innocents made possible by this judicial travesty.

“Sadly, many pro-homosexual groups like Human Rights Campaign and the National LGBTQ Task Force also aggressively promote abortion ‘rights.’ Planned Parenthood, in addition to being the world’s biggest abortion provider, actively promotes homosexuality, bisexuality, gender confusion–and even sadomasochism–to young people.

“Ideas and laws–and unjust court decisions–have consequences, and today is a reminder that the Culture of Death and Disease takes an immense toll on humanity. We must continue to stand up for the most defenseless in society by working to stop abortion.”

Bret Baier Confirms Fox News Asked Him to Pull Out of Catholic Legatus Event

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

Fox News-enforced Political Correctness: Anchor Bret Baier confirms that Fox News requested that he pull out of a Jan 28-29 conference for the Catholic group Legatus. Baier cited Pope Francis

Fox News-enforced Political Correctness: Anchor Bret Baier [e-mail: special@foxnews.com] confirms that Fox News requested that he pull out of a Jan 28-29 conference for the Catholic group Legatus. Baier chided a Legatus writer for not being “loving” enough, and for calling homosexuality a “disorder.” Yet the Catholic Catechism teaches that both homosexual behavior and inclinations are “disordered.” Meanwhile, FOX News funds a “gay journalists” group that promotes sexual behavior condemned by the Catholic Church and the Bible. [See Peter LaBarbera's in-depth report on Fox's pro-homosexual bias and funding of an activist-minded homosexual journalists association HERE.]

[E-mail: special@FOXNEWS.COM]

  • Anchor cites Pope Francis in agreeing with network decision to withdraw as speaker;
  • Baier says Legatus writer not “loving” enough; criticizes calling homosexuality a “disorder” even though that is Catholic teaching;
  • Gov. Mike Huckabee, Austin Ruse sign up as new Legatus speakers, defying “Gay Thought Police”
  • Do Bret Baier, Gary Sinise and Pete Coors owe Legatus and Catholics an apology?

By Peter LaBarbera

The following e-mail note was sent Friday by Fox News’ “Special Report” anchor Bret Baier [E-mail: special@FOXNEWS.COM] in response to an AFTAH newsletter subscriber who wrote him expressing concern over Baier’s decision to pull out as a scheduled speaker from a conference later this month by the Catholic group Legatus. [See previous AFTAH story on Legatus HERE.]

As you can read below, as justification for abandoning his commitment to Legatus, Baier criticizes a Legatus writer who wrote about “same-sex attraction disorder” for not being “loving” and “accepting” enough–e.g., for referring to homosexuality as a “disorder.” However, Baier, who describes himself as a “lifelong mass attending Catholic,” might want to study up on his own Church’s moral teachings. The Catholic Church Catechism describes the homosexual “inclination” as “objectively disordered,” and same-sex acts as “intrinsically disordered.”

The good news is that Legatus has had no trouble filling the politically correct speakers’ void, with former GOP presidential contender Mike Huckabee–a former Fox News host himself–sending a powerful message by leading the pack of new speakers advertised for the January 28-29 summit. Joining Huckabee are Catholic pro-family activist Austin Ruse and ex-CEO and professor Harry Kraemer.

Also, as AFTAH reported, Louisana Gov. Bobby Jindal never buckled to “gay” activist pressure by remaining as a speaker [call Gov. Jindal at 225-342-7015], and New York Catholic Cardinal Timothy Dolan will say a Mass at the Legatus event.

Bottom Line: Fox News’ Values Upside-Down

Here is the bottom line of this controversy: Fox News directly finances and sponsors pro-”gay” media events that promote homosexual behavior and ideology–including same-sex “marriage”–condemned by the Catholic Church. They also recruit at these activist-oriented events: see their sponsorship of last year’s National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA) conference in Chicago, attended by this writer, and my in-depth special report on Fox News pro-”gay” bias and ongoing funding of the NLGJA.

At the same time, Fox News apparently discourages its on-air talent from participating in wholesome, faith-based events that uphold traditional sexual morality, e.g., those espoused by longstanding Catholic Church teachings on sex and marriage.

What a shame. The good news is that more and more Americans despise the upside-down world of political correctness and the emerging “gay activist hecklers’ veto” that demonizes pro-family leaders and groups with the loaded accusation of being “anti-gay” and falsely smears them as being “hateful” merely because they uphold historic Judeo-Christian morality.

Enough is enough. Thank you, Mike Huckabee and Austin Ruse (Center for Family and Human Rights) for defying the intolerant “Gay” Censors! [Contact Huckabee HERE and Ruse at (202)393-7002.]

Personally, I believe Fox News and Bret Baier–as well as actor Gary Sinise and businessman Pete Coorsowe an apology to Legatus and all faithful Catholics–and defenders of biblical morality everywhere. Here is Legatus’ gracious media statement on the speakers situation. AFTAH will have more on this story. Full contact information to reach Baier and the others can be found HERE.–Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH

Absolute Truth vs. LGBTQ ‘My Truths’: Apple CEO Tim Cook’s Outrageous ‘Gay’ Claim and the Culture War

Friday, December 26th, 2014
Embracing the "Gay" and Slandering God -- Apple Inc CEO Tim Cook said he was "proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me."

Embracing the “Gay” Lie and slandering God in the process: Apple CEO Tim Cook writes that he is “proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me.” Cook was repeating a gay theology falsehood, labeled as “Satan’s Talking Points” by AFTAH. Homosexual activists have worked to switched the societal stigma from people practicing the sin of homosexuality to the people opposing it. Cook is giving heavily to an HRC project to promote homosexuality in the South.

“I will make justice the measuring line and righteousness the plumb line.” — Isaiah 28:17

Dear AFTAH Supporter,

I hope you had a blessed Christmas Day.  Happy New Year!  This is the season to dwell on Absolute Truth, lest we reduce “the holidays”—happy or otherwise–to mere sentimentality.  Divine Truth.  We profess it, but do we actually believe in it?  The namesake of Christmas—Jesus Christ–is the most important Absolute Truth anyone can ever know: God becoming man, to solve man’s sin problem.  [“He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.”—1 John 2:2]

The explosion of sexual sin in Western cultures–especially one like ours with a magnificent Christian heritage that still professes to be “under God”–is ultimately a manifestation of losing the Truth of Jesus.  Let’s face it: many or even most Americans—secular or professing “Christians”–think they’re “smarter than God” when it comes to sex (and other issues), and the result is a society is awash in sin and its consequences: fornication, broken homes, divorce, abortion, widespread STDs and, yes, homosexualism and extreme gender rebellion.

All sins dishonor God, but there’s something especially deplorable and significant about the spread of homosexuality and related perversions in a civilization.  Someone smart once said something to the effect that if homosexual sodomy—what Noah Webster in 1828 defined as “a crime against nature”–is OK, then nothing is wrong.  The court-imposed spread of sodomy-based “marriage” is a cultural act of defiance for which America will be judged—or perhaps is already being judged–as a nation. [Read the AFTAH article, “Gay Marriage and Distant Consequences."]

Following and obeying Jesus is the key to righteousness.  I find this reality to be evident in my own life: the more I stray from the Savior, the less virtuous, the less “godly,” I become.  The closer I get to Jesus through the Scriptures, the Word of God, the more righteous I become.  So it is with nations.

Changing the standard of right and wrong

All people sin.  But most of us lack the audacity and hubris to attempt to change the transcendent, eternal standard of Right and Wrong, even as we fall short, sometimes woefully short, of God’s righteous demands.

But the earthly “enemies” against which AFTAH contends are all about changing the Truth standard–in a desperate quest to rationalize their sin.  They want to change God’s plumb line of righteousness, based on the authority of, well, their feelings.  “LGBTQueer” forces–fueled by seemingly endless financial resources–work day and night to change the standard, but the standard does not change.  The standard cannot change.

WATCH: HRC Co-Founder Terry Bean’s Neighbor Says Bean ‘Likes the Young Ones’ and Brought Home Underage Boys

Wednesday, December 17th, 2014
Above is a take from a page from the Human Rights Campaign blog

TERRY BEAN AND HRC: Above is taken from a 2012 blog post on Human Rights Campaign website, noting co-founder Terry Bean’s appeal for Federal Club major donor memberships. HRC President Chad Griffin has blasted “police abuse” in the grand jury’s non-indictment of policeman Darren Wilson in the Furguson, Missouri shooting of Michael Brown–but is silent about a Lane County, OR indictment of HRC benefactor Bean on Sodomy and Sex Abuse charges. Red line emphasis added by AFTAH; click to enlarge.

Terry Bean–the 66-year-old co-founder of two major homosexual/transgender activist organizations – Human Rights Campaign and the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund – used to bring teenage “young” men and boys to his home who were “under 18 for sure,” says his Portland neighbor, Jeff Warila.

Warila described Bean’s arrival at home with the what appeared to be minor boys in tow as “weird.” Both Bean and his 25-year-old former “boyfriend,” Kiah Lawson, face a trial on two counts of Sodomy in the Third Degree and a single count of Sexual Abuse in the Third Degree. [See AFTAH stories with videos HERE and HERE.]

Warila made the observation about Bean’s peculiar dating habits to KOIN-6–which appears to be the only Portland TV station seriously covering the Bean/Lawson pederasty scandal. (Most major media are ignoring the story.) He told a KOIN-6 reporter:

“The ones that Terry likes are the young ones. They look like they’re under 18 for sure. And his friends come and they’re usually adults, but when Terry comes he has these boys with him. And I’m like [thinking], ‘That’s weird.’”

Below is the KOIN-TV interview containing the interview with Warila; go to the 1:27 mark on the 2-minute video [watch it on YouTube HERE]:

Bean has pleaded Not Guilty to the sex-crime charges. See the KOIN-6 story on Bean’s plea HERE.

WATCH: Mother of Kiah Lawson, Young Homosexual Boyfriend of Terry Bean — Human Rights Campaign Founder and Accused Sex Predator – Says Bean Groomed Her Son

Wednesday, December 17th, 2014

Mom says Bean gave her son with alcohol and Viagra to entice teen boy victim; neighbor says Bean frequently brought underage boys to his home; HRC, “gay” Victory Fund stay silent on sex abuse case

Alleged sex predators, 66-year-old Terry Bean (left) and his ex-"boyfriend," Kiah Lawson, in their mug shots following their Nov. 19 arrest by the Portland Police Bureau’s Sex Crimes Unit.

CHARGED WITH MAN-BOY SODOMY: Homosexual activist and Democrat Party power-broker Terry Bean, 66 (left)–who co-founded Human Rights Campaign and Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund–is shown in police mug shot beside Kiah Lawson, his 25-year-old ex-”boyfriend.” Bean and Lawson were arrested Nov. 19 by the Portland Police Bureau’s Sex Crimes Unit. The two men allegedly together sodomized a 15-year-old boy in a Eugene, Oregon hotel. HRC and GLVF are staying silent on the Bean sex crime scandal.

SUMMARY:

  • Kiah Lawson is the 25-year-old ex-”boyfriend” of HRC donor, 66-year-old Terry Bean; both are charged with sodomizing a 15-year-old boy in a Eugene, OR hotel last year. But Lawson’s mom says Bean used her son to “get young kids” for sex.  
  • Lawson’s mother told Portland KOIN-6 that Bean ”groomed” her son, giving him alcohol and Viagra to entice the minor boy victim.
  • Bean’s neighbor in Portland says he saw Bean bringing home underage-looking boys–which he thought was “weird.”
  • The two major homosexual lobby groups that Bean co-founded–Human Rights Campaign and Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund–remain mostly silent on the sex-abuse case.
  • Watch the two KOIN-6 news videos below.

_________________________

Folks, the first television news segment below was aired November 21, 2014 by Portland’s KOIN-6 news–the most aggressive station covering the sex predator scandal involving Democrat/Obama donor Terry Bean–a co-founder of two powerful “gay’transgender” organizations, Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund [see original AFTAH article HERE]. In the first video news segment below, Tim Nouanemany, the mother of Kiah Lawson, the 25-year-old former “boyfriend” of the 66-year-old Bean, accuses Bean of “grooming” her son and using him to “get young kids” for sex. She says Bean gave Lawson alcohol and Viagra to entice the 15-year-old boy whom both Bean and Lawson are accused of sodomizing.

Pedo-file-graphicNow let’s be honest: I doubt that Lawson is a real victim in this case–and certainly Bean isn’t. (The latter’s lawyer claims Bean was taken in by an extortion ring and that he never had sex with the minor boy; see this Dec. 3 KOIN story where Bean pleads innocent.) Based on the testimony of Bean’s neighbor, who says he saw a revolving door of underage boys visiting Bean’s Portland house [see second video below], the man others are calling a  ”human rights pioneer” and great “humanitarian” apparently used his money and power to procure young men to fulfill his lust for deviant, pederastic sex. Pederast is a word with Greek roots (paiderastes) meaning literally “lover of boys,” and though its definition varies–Merriam-Webster online has it as “a man who desires or engages in sexual activity with a boy”–its very existence testifies that this has been a long and consistent feature of male homosexuality. [See this story on "gay" icon Harry Harry, who backed NAMBLA; and this article on Larry Kramer; this revealing video by Walter Lee Hampton; more on this in AFTAH's ongoing "Pedo-File" series.]

All the sordid facts of the case will come out in the trial, but even if it turns out that Bean–a real estate developer who helped acquire HRC’s shiny headquarters building in Washington, D.C.–actually was set up by his four-decades-younger “ex,” most observers would say he deserved it–sort of like the “john” who gets robbed by the prostitute.

The Headquarters that Terry Bean Helped Build: D.C. headquarters of the homosexual lobby group Human Rights Campaign, which 65-year-old  co-founder  HRC co-founder Terry Bean--arrested for allegedly sodomizing a 15-year-old boy--helped acquire.

The HRC Headquarters that Alleged ‘Gay’ Predator Terry Bean Helped Build: Swank D.C. headquarters of the homosexual lobby group Human Rights Campaign, which 65-year-old HRC co-founder and real estate developer Terry Bean–arrested last month for allegedly sodomizing a 15-year-old boy–helped acquire. HRC President Chad Griffin complained about so-called “police violence” in Ferguson, MO, but HRC has had little to say about the alleged sex crime of its benefactor.

Where are HRC’s and GLVF’s condemnations? Speaking of trials, isn’t it interesting that HRC joined the chorus of leftists condemning the grand jury’s decision not to indict Darren Wilson, the cop who shot alleged burglar and assailant Michael Brown (in self-defense) in Ferguson, Missouri? HRC President Chad Griffin inveighed: “As advocates for equality, it’s our job to show solidarity with a growing national movement to break this cycle of police violence.”

How odd, then, that almost a month after the sex-crime arrest involving their major benefactor, neither HRC nor the homosexual Victory Fund have put out any meaningful statements on the Bean-Lawson scandal. No offers of sympathy for the minor boy. No pledges of “solidarity” with the youthful victim of pederasty. No sober reflections on the inherently exploitative nature of sexual “relationships” between rich old men and twenty-something guys.

Nada.

So much for “equality.”

Human Rights Campaign’s Predator Problem: Founder Terry Bean, Major Obama & Democrat Fundraiser, Accused of Sexually Abusing Boy

Wednesday, November 26th, 2014

Bean gave $1 million to HRC; also founded Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund; is largest Oregon donor to Obama; envisioned and funded HRC’s D.C. headquarters building; HRC finally comments on case after five days of silence

Obama Chickenhawk Money-Man? In better days, Portland homosexual activist Terry Bean poses for a photo with Barack Obama. Bean--who was arrested for sodomizing a 15-year-old boy--was a major Democratic fundraiser who raised more money for Obama than anyone from Oregon. "Chickenhawk" is an old "gay" slang term for men who prefer sex with teenage boys (called "chicken")--as appears to be the predilection of the 66-year-old Bean.

Obama’s ‘Chickenhawk’ Campaign Contributor? In better days, Portland homosexual activist and Democratic power-broker Terry Bean is shown posing for a photo with Barack Obama. Bean–who was arrested for sodomizing a 15-year-old  boy–was a key behind-the-scenes “gay” activist who raised more campaign cash for Obama than anyone from Oregon. “Chickenhawk” is a “gay” slang term for homosexual men who pursue sex with minor and teenage boys (derisively called “chicken”)–as appears to be the predilection of the 66-year-old Bean. Kiah Lawson, the 25-year-old former boyfriend of Bean, was also arrested for sodomizing the minor boy (see arrest photos below).

By Peter LaBarbera

Folks, once in a while a story with such sordid and shocking details breaks through the leftist media’s pro-”gay” censorship to reveal the stark truth about the perverse lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender-”queer” (LGBTQ) movement. The child-sex arrest of Terry Bean–a founder of both the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund; Obama money-man; and major Democratic power-broker–is one of those cases. Below is a TV news collage– including commentary by pro-family leaders Scott Lively and Bryan Fischer–of the story of the 66-year-old Bean’s arrest last Wednesday for committing sodomy with a 15-year-old-boy.

Williamette Week reports on the charges against Bean:

“Law enforcement sources familiar with the case say Bean will be charged with two counts of sodomy in the third degree, a felony, and sex abuse in the third degree, a misdemeanor. He will be arraigned later in Lane County, where the crimes allegedly occurred in 2013.”

Human Rights Campaign, the world’s largest and best-funded homosexual lobby organization (Executive Director Chad Griffin makes more than $400,000 annually), took the time to condemn the grand jury’s non-indictment of Ferguson, Missouri policeman Darren Wilson, and celebrate the “Transgender Day of Remembrance,” among other blog posts–but has yet to post anything on its website on the sex-crime arrest of Bean, who reportedly has donated more than $1 million to HRC. Bean has been removed from HRC’s Board of Directors pending the adjudication of his case.

AFTAH will carry multiple stories on this case and the twisted reality–dating back to ancient homosexuality–of older adult “homosexual” men sodomizing teenage boys. How telling is it that HRC–which routinely and recklessly castigates conservative, Christian pro-family groups like AFTAH–took five days to issue a bland, non-condemnatory statement on its predatory benefactor Bean? His arrest puts the powerful homosexual lobby group in a very tight spot: Bean, after all, is so central to the “gay” lobby’s success that he came up with the idea of HRC constructing of a swank headquarters building in Washington, D.C. More details and photos showing Bean’s enormous clout in Democratic circles follow the video after the jump:

Here are the arrest mugshots of Bean and Lawson, the former boyfriend four decades his junior, who was also arrested on sex-crime charges involving sodomy with a 15-year-old boy at a hotel in Eugene, Oregon. Various news and commentary links about the Bean sex-crime case follow the photo:

Terry-Bean-Kiah Lawson_Jail_Booking_Photo

News Links: Round-up on Terry Bean arrest:

  • Williamette Week (6/4/14; pre-arrest): “Terry Bean’s Problem: A prominent Portlander fights for his reputation after a love affair goes wrong”: “Bean says that last year he fell in love with Lawson. Bean paid him a $400-a-week allowance, put Lawson up in one of his homes and took him on international trips. Last fall, Bean brought Lawson to the White House and also introduced him to Obama…”In January, Lawson says, he discovered that Bean had a hidden camera in the smoke detector above Bean’s bed in his West Hills home. Lawson used this information to seek money from Bean, alleging that the camera captured videos ‘of at least a half dozen individuals in a state of nudity engaged in intimate acts with you.’ Lawson claims he is in more than one video.”
  • The Oregonian:  ”Former boyfriend of Democratic fundraiser Terry Bean arrested on sex abuse indictment”: “Both Bean and Lawson are accused of having a sexual encounter with the same 15-year-old boy in a hotel in Eugene last year. They had arranged the encounter with the teen after meeting him via a website, investigators allege.”
  • KOIN-TV {contains video}: “Portland Gay Rights Leader Arrested in Sex Case”
  • NY Post: “Obama Fundraiser Accused of Sex with Minor”: ”He’s a mega bundler for President Obama. He’s been on Air Force One. He’s shared a Christmas visit with Michelle Obama at the White House. And now he’s being accused of sex with a minor.”

REMEMBERING JESSE: The Deviant Homosexual Rape-Murder of Young Jesse Dirkhising

Friday, September 26th, 2014
The 7th-grade photo of Jesse Dirkhising, from the Lincoln School yearbook in 1999 -- the same year he was killed after being raped and sodomized by homosexuals (and lovers) David Don Carpenter and Joshua Macabe Brown.

This 7th-grade photo of Jesse Dirkhising is from the Lincoln (Middle) School yearbook in 1999 — the same year he was killed after being sadistically raped and sodomized by homosexuals (and lovers) David Don Carpenter and Joshua Macave Brown. Dirkhising’s murder was largely ignored by cultural elites — while homosexual Matthew Shepard’s murder was given extraordinary, worldwide media coverage (based on a false “hate crime” narrative).

[WARNING: GRAPHIC LANGUAGE, DESCRIBING PERVERSE ACTS]

Update 9/26/2014: Fifteen years ago today, a 13-year-old Arkansas boy, Jesse Dirkhising, was sodomized to death by two older homosexual men who used him as their “sex toy.” This account by my friend and AFTAH adviser Allyson Smith gives the sordid and astonishing facts of his sadistic rape-killing.

Both of Jesse’s assailants, the more sinister (and older), David Don Carpenter, who planned the sickening, penetrative assault on Jesse, and his (their)  lover, Joshua Macave Brown, were friends of Jesse’s mother, Tina Yates, who naively allowed the boy to go away with the men and stay the night in another town. Tragically, Yates’ “pro-gay” attitudes contributed to the cruel death of her son.

We remember this Victim of Homosexuality today. Jesse would be 28 and in the prime of his life today were that life not robbed from him by sadistic “gay” predators who used him for their deviant sexual pleasures. More coming on this. – Peter LaBarbera. AFTAH

The Homosexual Rape-Murder of Young Jesse Dirkhising

No National Cathedral memorial event for Arkansas boy — while “progressives” continue to stoke Matthew Shepard “hate crime” myth shattered by new Stephen Jimenez book

The following article by my good friend and AFTAH writer Allyson Smith is adapted from her definitive 2002 WND.com article on the horrific and gruesome murder of a 13-year-old Arkansas boy, Jesse Dirkhising – who died from asphyfixiation and drugging after being brutally and sadistically sodomized by a homosexual man, under the twisted guidance of another (his much older “gay” lover). As WND reported,

“Dirkhising was found by police unconscious on the floor of a Prairie Grove, Ark. residence around 5 a.m. Sept. 26, 1999, his hands bound with duct tape and his mouth gagged. Police later determined Dirkhising had been repeatedly raped over a period of hours, including with foreign objects, by [Joshua] Brown, then 22, and Davis Don Carpenter, then 38….[A]uthorities said after the last rape he was left bound and gagged while his attackers ate a sandwich. He died of suffocation, a coroner’s report found.”

The two homosexual lovers who sexually tortured the boy — Joshua Brown and his older partner, Davis Don Carpenter — were both friends of Jesse’s mother, who reportedly was happy to let her son hang out with the men and even stay over the weekend in their apartment in a town 32 miles away. [Go HERE to read a PDF facsimile of the initial police report of the crime.] In 2000, AFTAH’s flagship newsletter, Lambda Report, reported:

“Evidence from the Jesse Dirkhising case suggest the Arkansas boy’s killers were following bondage and sodomy rituals of the type laid out in scores of books and magazines fueling the growing “leather” subculture — popular among “gay” men — that eroticizes pain, dominance and humiliation.”

As fate would have it, only a year and a few days separate the anniversary dates of the rape-murder of Dirkhising (September 26, 1999) from that of the assault on murdered Wyoming homosexual college student Matthew Shepard (October 6, 1998). But only one murder — with its contrived, convenient and politically-correct “hate crime” story-line — became useful to pro-homosexual “progressives” and the liberal media, while the other was largely ignored.

Shepard’s 1998 murder (condemned by this writer and many pro-family groups and leaders at the time) drew worldwide coverage as a supposed “anti-gay hate crime.” It is still commonly commemorated as such — despite the publication of homosexual author Stephen Jimenez’s new book, The Book of Matt: Hidden Truths About the Murder of Matthew Shepard, which shatters that the longstanding media and LGBT activist narrative that Shepard was targeted and murdered “because he was gay.”

Jimenez, building on his groundbreaking 2004 ABC News 20/20 expose showing that Shepard’s death was largely a drug robbery, demonstrates conclusively that Shepard not only knew his killer, Aaron McKinney — who like him was a methampthetamine dealer — but partied with him and may even have been involved sexually with him. (In his murder trial, McKinney attempted a “gay panic” defense, claiming that he sought to punish the supposed stranger Shepard because the latter came on to him at a bar.) Jimenez interviewed ten sources who testified that McKinney knew and associated with Shepard.

National Cathedral marks Matthew’s death, not Jesse’s

Seemingly oblivious to the well-researched revelations in Jimenez’s book, the Washington National Cathedral, in the nation’s capital, held an anniversary event last weekend in remembrance of the Shepard murder in the context of “honoring gay youth.”

In contrast, there were no national commemorations last week of Dirkhising’s 1999 murder. Conservatives have attempted with little success over the years to get the “mainstream” media to acknowledge that the pedophilic, sadistic-sex killing of young Dirkhising by two homosexual lovers deserved as much coverage as the brutal beating of Shepard. But the response that often came back was that the Shepard case (as an alleged “hate crime”) had something to teach America (i.e., about “hate” and tolerance) while the Dirkhising case was merely another sordid sex crime.

Symbolizing the media double-standard, TIME magazine essayist Johnathan Gregg wrote back in 1999:

“The reason the Dirkhising story received so little play is because it offered no lessons. Shepard’s murder touches on a host of complex and timely issues: intolerance, society’s attitudes toward gays and the pressure to conform, the use of violence as a means of confronting one’s demons. Jesse Dirkhising’s death gives us nothing except the depravity of two sick men. There is no lesson here, no moral of tolerance, no hope to be gleaned in the punishment of the perpetrators. To be somehow equated with these monsters would be a bitter legacy indeed for Matthew Shepard.”

In a courageous work, openly homosexual author Stephen Jimenez has laid bare the many media myths surrounding the Matthew Shepard murder.

In a courageous work, openly homosexual author Stephen Jimenez has laid bare the many media myths surrounding the Matthew Shepard murder — which was a drug crime and not a “hate crime.”

Now the evidence continues to mount that the entire foundation of the Shepard story underlying Gregg’s tendentious thesis is bogus and its true lessons have nothing to with hate or “gay tolerance” — but rather the dangers of meth addiction, drug and alcohol abuse, family breakdown, reckless living and even the effects of homosexual molestation. (Ironically, the Dirkhising story teaches some of those same lessons.) Jimenez documents (HIV-positive) Shepard’s repeated sexual aggressions, and the book ends with this shocking revelation:

“Matthew Shepard was a victim of sexual abuse and molestation as a boy and as a teenager…Apparently, his wounds from being sexually victimized also manifested in another common, but tragic pattern: The victim becomes a perpetrator himself….At age fifteen Matthew was arrested for molesting two eight-year-old boys in his Casper [Wyoming] neighborhood…Matthew’s juvenile arrest record had been quietly concealed.”

Not all crime victims are equal

Unfortunately, there is a politically-correct hierarchy of victims in the United States — and (white, middle class) “gay” victims are at the top while, perhaps, boys seduced and abused by homosexual pedophiles are at the bottom. Most Americans have never heard the basic facts surrounding Jesse Dirkhising’s troubled upbringing and the savage sexual assault that cruelly cut short his life as a young teenager. On the other hand, most Americans have heard a false and grotesquely simplified ‘spinning’ of the Shepard murder that just happens to fit the needs of the “Gay” Lobby and the liberal media who have come to be its most important allies. – Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH

PS. Americans For Truth has obtained firsthand materials surrounding the prosecution of Dirkhising’s murderers and will have more on this story. We will also lay out in greater detail some of the startling facts about the Shepard murder brought forth by Stephen Jimenez in his The Book of Matt. [Allyson Smith's article is after the jump]
