Folks, my article in this month’s edition of Whistleblower — the monthly print magazine for WorldNetDaily (WND.com) — is titled, “‘Gay’ Power vs. Religious Liberty: How ‘Gay Rights’ Are Destroying Freedom of Conscience in America.” I summarize a bevy of cases over the last two decades pitting homosexual “rights” against religious liberty (and tragically, people of faith have lost many of those battles). I highly recommend purchasing this particular Whistleblower issue (for $7.50 including postage), which is loaded with cutting-edge information on the LGBT agenda, including Editor David Kupelian’s piece on the “transgender” revolution. Below is a promotional piece on the Whistleblower issue, which you can special-order by calling 800-496-3266 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH

When it started, who could possibly have known it would turn out like this?
After all, it emerged right after the historic ’60s Civil Rights movement, which nobly outlawed racial segregation in America. And in the warm glow of the Martin Luther King era, many people came to believe “gays” were simply the next group needing protection from discrimination.
Of course, being an overwhelmingly Christian nation meant millions of Americans strongly objected to homosexuality on moral and religious grounds. But Americans are also the most pluralistic, tolerant and open-minded people on earth, and were increasingly inclined to give “gay rights” activists the benefit of the doubt.
Eventually warming up to a growing “gay-friendly” culture (promoted at every turn by the news and entertainment media), Americans abandoned their previous caution, flung their doors wide open and heartily welcomed the “gay rights” agenda with open arms.
However, it was a Trojan Horse. And most people had no idea what lay in waiting.
Today – as documented in October’s groundbreaking Whistleblower issue, titled “THE NEW SEXUAL REVOLUTION” – a new totalitarian order is sweeping the land.
Parts of this burgeoning totalitarianism are already evident – like legislation that flat-out prohibits counseling help for minors who want to overcome unwanted same-sex attractions; the prosecution and criminalization of ever-larger numbers of Christian businesspeople for simply declining to promote homosexuality on moral and religious grounds; the new California law decreeing that boys must be allowed to use girls’ restrooms and locker rooms if they identify with the opposite sex, and vice versa; forced integration of open homosexuals into the military; and the imposition on the nation of homosexual marriage.
Megyn Kelly has emerged as a strong ally of the LGBT Lobby, earning her repeated praise from “gay” and liberal activists who usually condemn Fox News. Click on graphic to obtain a PDF of the report by AFTAH’s Peter LaBarbera on Fox News’ pro-homosexual drift.
Folks, here is a link to a PDF of my new, in-depth report for America’s Survival on Fox News’ escalating pro-homosexual bias: www.usasurvival.org/docs/Kincaid-FOX-NLGJA-FINAL.pdf. At his August 20 “Crisis in American Journalism” conference in Washington, D.C., America’s Survival Inc. founder Cliff Kincaid will present the paper as part of his talk on the leftward drift of Fox News. We will post an HTML copy of the full report. – Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH
The following is Kincaid’s press release on the report and upcoming conference:
Fox News Goes Gay
A Presentation on ‘The Rise and Fall of Fox News’ at August 20 D.C. Conference
WASHINGTON,Aug. 14, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ — As part of a national journalism conference on Tuesday, August 20, America’s Survival, Inc. (ASI), a public policy organization, is officially releasing a new report on radical changes at Fox News that should cause great concern to pro-family conservatives.
“Pushing Sean Hannity out of the 9:00 p.m. slot, to make way for pro-homosexual advocate Megyn Kelly, is another sign of the channel’s left-ward drift and decline,” said ASI President Cliff Kincaid, a veteran journalist and media critic.
Mocking the Fox motto of “Fair, Balanced and Unafraid,” the new report is titled, “Unfair, Unbalanced and Afraid: Fox News’ Growing Pro-Homosexual Bias and the National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association.” It is available in advance at the ASI website www.usasurvival.org.
The 40,000-word report, written by former reporter and social activist Peter LaBarbera, examines how journalism today, even at Fox News, “has become pro-homosexual propaganda, with many media stories appearing as if they were written by LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) activists.” Like other major media, the report notes, Fox News through its parent company, News Corporation, is a long-time funder of the National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA). LaBarbera runs the Americans for Truth about Homosexuality group.
The cover of the report features a photo of Fox News star and afternoon host Megyn Kelly posing for a photo at the 2010 NLGJA fund-raiser in New York City. Every year, Fox News violates basic journalistic ethics by joining other major media as a corporate sponsor of the NLGJA. The report cites documentary evidence that the coverage of homosexuality by Fox News is tilted in a left-wing direction, and that the channel has failed its conservative viewers. When Kincaid and LaBarbara sent a letter to Fox chief Roger Ailes earlier this year asking for a meeting on the subject, they were rebuffed.
Coach notes rapid desensitization of Americans toward homosexuality
Folks, Coach Dave Daubenmire of Pass the Salt Ministries is one of a kind. It was a pleasure to be interviewed by the Coach — a man’s man whose old-fashioned moral frankness may be out of step with today’s culture but is so much more refreshing than the pablum coming from some “Christians” and “conservatives” these days. I love Coach’s point — as politically incorrect as it is true – at around the 22:25 mark regarding what parents fear most. Also note:
Coach’s comments on TIME magazine’s indecent “gay kiss” cover and what it says about desensitization in the USA (10:30);
my comments on Larry Kramer and “gay” men who look back “fondly” on their own molestation (27:35); and
the section on the sinister pro-pedophilia “B4UAct” website (“NAMBLA with a PhD”), which mimics homosexual activist talking points to advance the agenda of the “Minor Attracted People” movement.
Give me just 100 pastors like Coach Daubenmire scattered across America and you wouldn’t recognize this nation! Please support the Coach and his ministry. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH
PS. Let me anticipate a homosexual activist criticism of my comments – which of course will be distorted – around the 14:00-15:00 minute mark. I am not “reassured” (14:40) that homosexual men contract so many diseases related to their perversion, in the sense of taking some sort of heartless satisfaction from their suffering. Rather, I am reassured that Nature and the practical realities of the homosexual lifestyle affirm God’s revealed truth about this sin. As I say in the interview, “The real world is backing up what the Bible says about homosexuality.” This should further motivate Christians to lovingly share God’s free gift of salvation through Jesus Christ to people caught up in homosexual behavior. More information follows the interview….
This interview was published by NewsWithViews.TV on Apr 11, 2013. Coach writes:
“Peter LaBarbera of www.AmericansForTruth.org joins Coach Dave for an in-depth discussion of the homosexual agenda and how ‘marriage’ is just their latest assault on traditional values. Listen to this riveting, no-holds-barred discussion.”
Tax-funded transgenderism:This is Celeste Flemming, and “she” is a man. At an “LGBTQ” conference in Norman, OK, Flemming compared “transitioning,” “male-to-female” transsexuals who are prevented from using women’s restrooms (e.g., at work) to racist Jim Crow laws that banned Black Americans from using the same public restrooms as whites. The Oklahoma conference was sponsored by the State of Oklahoma with federal grant dollars. Flemming is a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) employee who evidently now is used by the agency to help accommodate other gender-”transitioning” FAA employees.
OKLAHOMA CITY — I’m writing you from Oklahoma, having just attended a pro-homosexual conference funded with YOUR tax dollars and sponsored by the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), a branch of HHS. We will have a full report on this one-day conference, which not only was devoid of pro-family advocates but featured speakers who were explicitly anti-biblical in their ideology, e.g., claiming that Romans 1 does NOT proscribe homosexual acts as sinful.
Here’s an excerpt from a conference flier titled, “What does the bible say about homosexuality?” passed out by presenter Kathy McCallie, in a session called “Spiritual Wellness in BGLT (sic) Communities, a Primer”:
“[The Apostle] Paul had no inkling that for some persons, a same-sex orientation might be natural, that is, part of who they are created to be. If he had known this, he would have had to argue that, for such persons, heterosexual acts would be unnatural.”
Whatever happened to liberal demands for “Separation of Church and State” (which is actually a twisting of the First Amendment)?! Here we have Americans’ tax dollars being used to assault historic biblical teaching against homosexuality as sinful.
As you can see from the photo above, the Oklahoma conference, although supposedly focusing on substance abuse, devoted much energy to promoting gender confusion and homosexuality. Can you imagine comparing gender-confused men who believe they are “women” but are denied use of the ladies’ restroom to Blacks suffering under official Jim Crow racism — as male-to-female trans “woman” Celeste Flemming did?
The very first speaker at the conference, Randy Roberts Potts – the openly homosexual grandson of the late Oral Roberts – maligned my friend and Oklahoma St. Rep. Sally Kern, accusing her of being “hateful” toward homosexuals and going on a “witch-hunt” against them. Stay tuned to this story, which also sheds like on the Obama administration’s radical use of the federal bureaucracy to promote the homosexualist agenda across America. – Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH
Go HERE to listen to AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera’s Tuesday interview with Dallas-based Christian talk show host Janet Mefferd. We discussed the American Psychiatric Association’s (APA) announcement that it will remove “Gender Identity Disorder” (GID) from the next edition of its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-V) – known as the the “bible” of psychiatry. LaBarbera discusses how the change was the result of politics — with transgender activists heavily lobbying the APA just as homosexual activists lobbied (and bullied) the APA into removing homosexuality as a mental disorder in 1973.
The following is Mefferd’s listing for the program:
Tuesday, December 04, 2012
The American Psychiatric Association board has hit another historic milestone: People who call themselves “transgender” or “gender non-conforming” will no longer have their identities classified as mental disorders in the APA manual. Janet will talk over the implications with Peter LaBarbera, president and founder of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality. Also: Is it time for evangelicals to give up the same-sex “marriage” fight? One prominent religion writer thinks so. Janet will discuss it with Dr. Robert Gagnon, associate professor of New Testament at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary and author of “The Bible and Homosexual Practice.”
Media won’t call these ‘pretend men’ what they are: very confused women
First there was the “Pregnant Man” (a sexually confused former beauty queen) and now this: Trevor MacDonald, a “Transgendered, Gay, Breastfeeding Dad” from oh-so tolerant Canada. Actually, SHE is a very confused woman who desperately needs God’s help — although I’m sure she is enjoying the limelight that comes from embracing the latest politically correct perversion. Here is ”Trevor’s” bio on a blog piece titled, ” A Transgender Dad Looks Back on One Year of Breastfeeding His Baby”:
Trevor MacDonald lives in Winnipeg, Canada, with his partner, baby and dog. He is currently a stay-at-home dad, and has an honours BA in political science from the University of British Columbia. While remaining secure in his identity as a gay man, he breastfeeds his baby boy because of the zillions of studies that prove that breastfeeding is a healthy, biologically normal choice for babies. He writes about his queer breastfeeding adventures on his blog at www.milkjunkies.net
Boy, I sure am glad Trevor cares about making the “biologically normal choice” for HER baby. Did she ever get around to thinking about the effects that her abnormal identity and behavioral choices as a parent will have on her innocent child? That poor boy. Below are some comments sent to me by David, a friend from North Carolina who left the homosexual lifestyle (which is to say, he abandoned that destructive sin). What is so fascinating about modern “progressives” and all who bow down to “Tolerance” is that they seem incapable of doing whas David does below and state the simple truth: that this is absolutely nuts. – Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH
The surgically mutilated woman pictured above, breastfeeding her baby, is pretending to be a man. She got preggers and had an innocent child, all the while undergoing a “sex change” to become a “transgender” (but she did not, as of yet, install the fake male genitalia). But the “sex change” (surgical mutilation) was not to become a “straight man,” but a homosexual one. Yes, you got that right, she wanted to become a homosexual male. More than likely due to her fascination over homosexual male pornography. And “he” (she) wed a biological male to become “gay male lovers.” Speaking truthfully, can you imagine being forced to be raised in such a twisted, perverse and distorted household? But with extreme liberals now embracing, legislating, and forcing their agenda on everyone else, you’d better get used to seeing more of this.
“It’s extremely offensive because it’s pretty much saying the only way you can be a woman is to get your period.
“That’s where a lot of the anger in the community is coming from – it’s saying you are not a woman unless you can get your period.
“Obviously we can’t menstruate. However, we identify as female.”– New Zealand “Transgender” activist Cherise Witerhire, biological male, president of Agender New Zealand, as quoted in New Zealand Herald
Folks, the war against Nature continues into the New Year. Leave it to the transgender movement — the gender-confused “T” in LGBT — to find men who actually regret that they can’t menstruate! It’s only the 3rd of January but we already have a sure contender for the most ridiculous LGBT story and quotation of 2012: New Zealand (male) transssexuals expressing outrage over what they say is a “blatantly transphobic” tampon commercial. Hat tip to Michael Brown for sending us this gem from the New Zealand Herald, describing Transgender activist outrage at a New Zealand feminine hygiene company’s tampon ad. Needless to say in our Politically Correctness-soaked world, the hilarious ad was quickly pulled.) [More commentary after video.]
Promoting homosexuality now is old hat to modern liberals. Fighting “transphobia” — hey, that’s where the action is. Watch for a year of shameless promotion of gender confusion by cultural elites in the media, Hollywood and academia. For a fresh alternative perspective, check out our extended radio interview with Walt Heyer, an ex-transsexual-turned faithful Christian who went through a horrific “sex-change” operation but who now warns men and women not to go down that road. Walt’s website is www.SexChangeRegret.com. – Peter LaBarbera, www.aftah.org
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.
