Calls pour into Zales as corporate America’s moral free fall continues
Mix the Aberrant with the Normal: Zales’ wedding commercial mixes two joyous, attractive women in an immoral, counterfeit “wedding” ceremony–with several images of normal, male-female couples. The goal is simple: get the public over time to embrace or at least accept that genderless, sin-based “marriages” are akin (“equal”) to the real deal. More info HERE; call Zales at 1-800-311-5393; hit option “6”–or write them HERE.
Folks, if you’re looking to buy diamonds or jewelry but you also care about preserving natural marriage as God designed it–one man, one woman, producing babies together–don’t shop at Zales (call 1-800-311-5393; hit option “6”). The jewelry company created this 30-second commercial that helps normalize homosexuality-based “marriage” by mixing it in with several images of normal, male-female relationships and marriages. That’s a tried-and-true propaganda tactic used to break down cultural norms (the Left’s specialty).
The Zales lesbian counterfeit “wedding” scene starts at the 8-second mark. For more background on the Zales and the campaign against it by our friends at One Million Moms (OMM), see my piece in LifeSiteNews. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH.org

Folks, the day for deciding America’s future is finally here. I wrote this piece for LifeSiteNews.com, where I am now a U.S. reporter. [Sign up for LSN updates here.] This callout quote below aptly represents the way “progressives” think. Rather than mold our behaviors to God’s ideal–revealed through the Bible–modern liberals resent those who adhere to a Higher Law and will not conform to sin-based agendas. Go out and vote, and as always, ignore the corrupt, liberal media! — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH.org
“One of my big problems right now is that too many people believe they have a direct line to the divine and they never want to change their mind about anything.” — Hillary Clinton, NPR “Fresh Air” interview, 2014
Flashback – Pro-LGBT Clinton Defended Natural Marriage as ‘Sacred Bond’ of Man and Woman
By Peter LaBarbera
November 7, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Like the Democratic U.S. president she is trying to succeed, Hillary Clinton has done a 180-degree U-turn on the legalization of homosexual “marriage”—going from a religious-minded foe of genderless “marriage” in 2000 to a fervent crusader for it today as a supposed “constitutional right.”
Most ominously in a post-Obergefell America that is increasingly hostile to citizens who do not wish to participate in or validate same-sex “marriage,” Hillary Clinton is now a vocal opponent of “religious freedom restoration” laws like the one overturned in Indiana. These laws aim to preserve people’s right to live out their support for natural marriage before God (a belief Hillary shared pre-2013) and not to countenance sin.
She also openly expresses hostility to faith-based citizens who refuse to bend their thinking on homosexual “marriage.”
In that vein, Mrs. Clinton touts the federal LGBTQ “Equality Act,” which adds homosexuality and transgenderism to the 1964 Civil Rights Act and which, in its present form, would explicitly negate the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act—which Congress passed to defend religious liberty and the First Amendment.
Dirty Tricks, Democrat-style: “We have to be really careful because, because what we don’t need is for it to show up on CNN that the DNC paid for X people to [disrupt a Trump rally]. That’s not going to happen.”–Scott Foval, National Field Director at Americans United for Change
I encourage every voter to watch this remarkable undercover video by Project Veritas Action, founded by “citizen journalist” James O’Keefe. James is doing the work that the “maintream” media should have been doing for years–and would be doing now were they not beholden to liberal ideology. Even Democratic pundits are agreeing that the media bias in this general election is worse than ever–as the media aggressively pursue every accusation against Donald Trump while giving Hillary Clinton the kid gloves treatment.
“Progressive” tactician Saul Alinsky’s mindset was that the end justifies the mean–and this is the modus operandi of so many on the Left today, whether it’s homosexual activists who lied about “10 Percent” of the population being “gay” (the number is actually around two percent) or the Southern Poverty Law Center creating an outrageous, bogus narrative that to oppose homosexualism is tantamount to “hate.” The Left’s real contempt is for the American people, whom they are quite willing to lie to and manipulate to achieve their goal of winning or keeping political power. But bold, alternative media like this is exposing the fraud and corruption that is endemic on the Left.
Kudos to James O’Keefe and his team for doing more to expose political corruption in one undercover video series than 1,000 lemmings in the “mainstream” media! Please share this with anyone you know who votes. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH
Description of video by Project Veritas Action:
Published on Oct 17, 2016 In this explosive new video from Project Veritas Action, a Democratic dirty tricks operative unwittingly provides a dark money trail to the DNC and Clinton campaign. The video documents violence at Trump rallies that is traced to the Clinton campaign and the DNC through a process called birddogging.
A shady coordinated communications chain between the DNC, Clinton Campaign, Hillary Clinton’s Super PAC (Priorities) and other organizations are revealed. A key Clinton operative is on camera saying, “It doesn’t matter what the friggin’ legal and ethics people say, we need to win this mother[f–ker].”
The following 2-minute YouTube video was produced by the National Organization for Marriage (NOM). It highlights four key findings of the recent New Atlantis journal’s special report, “Sexuality & Gender: Findings from the Biological, Psychological, and Social Sciences” (Fall 2016) Go HERE for an Executive Summary of the report, and HERE to read the New Atlantis journal online. Another important finding in this report is that, “Compared to heterosexuals, non-heterosexuals are about two to three times as likely to have experienced childhood sexual abuse.” H/T Mercatornet.com.
More on the study: Also see this post in which AFTAH president Peter LaBarbera discusses the New Atlantis study in an interview with Christian radio talk show host Janet Mefferd.
The science on sexuality and gender proves that much of the foregoing narrative advanced by LGBT activists is based on presumption and falsehood. The overview given in the new report from The New Atlantis should help inform lawmakers and others when approaching a matter so important: our children deserve to be treated according to the best scientific knowledge, and not made pawns in a political game by those driving an agenda of supposed “rights” and “equality.”
This amazing couple is returning to their God-given male and female identities after years of trying to “transition” to the opposite sex
“Life isn’t about me, it’s about others.” — Paul Lopez, “detransitioning” ex-transsexual
From Lies to Truth: Paul Lopez in his old, gender-confused life as “Lynna” (left) with Maritza Cummings (then calling herself “Mark”), back in 2015 before they each began “detransitioning”–i.e., reversing their unnatural “gender transitions” to return to their God-given biological sex. See the 2015 video here. To read the uplifting story of ex-“transman” Maritza, who is detransitioning back to her natural female self, go here. Paul and Maritza are married. And watch the video below to see where Paul is today in his healthy transformation.
I was so touched watching this YouTube video (h/t Daniel Erline) of “detransitioning” Paul Lopez cleaning out his apartment of all the female clothes and wigs worn by his former, false “transwoman” self, “Lynna.” Paul and his wife, Maritza Cummings–a former female-to-male “transgender” activist who is also detransitioning–have drawn the attention of the “gay” press for coming out against the gender-transitioning process. [See this 2014 article about Maritza in the homosexual magazine The Advocate when she still was going by the name Mark Angelo Cummings.]
Embracing unnatural “gender identities” is all the rage these days — especially since the media/pop culture frenzy over Bruce (“Caitlyn”) Jenner. Political correctness has overtaken reason as societal elites recklessly promote gender confusion (rebellion) and body-disfiguring hormone therapies and surgeries–like healthy breast removal–even to impressionable teens and young adults. They’re even using drugs to “suppress puberty” for pre-teens so the child can “explore the gender identity he or she feels is the correct one”! Utter madness.
What the media are definitely not inclined to report are the wholesome stories of ex-“trans” people like Paul and Maritza who are returning to sanity, most, it seems, with the help of God. Yes, Jesus Christ is the world’s greatest change agent, and thanks to alternative media millions of people can see how He is working in people’s lives–despite the Orwellian oppression of LGBTQ-affirming groupthink. For decades homosexual activists have loved to talk about “visibility”: “Come out, come out, wherever you are!” was one “gay” activist slogan. But now that tactic is boomeranging on them as people come out of false, disordered and self-obsessed LGBTQ identities.
Believe me, the last thing Big Gay/Big Trans Inc activists like GLAAD want is this kind of visibility: the return to normalcy. (Rule for the Left: all “coming out” stories are good–except when people come out of homosexual and transsexual deviance.)
Note Paul’s common sense observations about the difference between men’s and women’s bodies (shoe size, panties, etc.). How dare we confirm minor children–whose minds and bodies are not even fully developed–in the dangerous world of drug-induced and surgical “gender transition”! If you’re too busy to watch all 15 minutes of the video, skip ahead to around the 13:00 mark, where Paul observes that what undergirds gender transitioning is hatred of self. Check back to AFTAH as we’ll be bringing you other heart-warming stories like this in the days and months ahead. — Peter LaBarbera, Americans For Truth; @PeterLaBarbera; AFTAH Facebook Page
Here’s Paul’s description of the video:
Hi I’m Paul and I used to be a transwoman, that I am no longer. Thanks to God, grace and the unconditional love of a good woman, my Maritza. (Published Sept. 12, 2016)
“[David Hall] is absolutely correct: LGBT ‘diversity’ sessions and films are NOT truly ‘diverse’ because they disrespect or ignore faith-based and moral opposition to homosexualism and transsexualism.”–Peter LaBarbera, Americans For Truth
Folks, we can’t expect even a tiny minority of Christians to stand so resolutely for God’s Truth that they are even willing to lose their job over it. So when a man like Illinois government worker David Hall refuses to bow down to the modern idol of pro-perversion “diversity,” he deserves to be called the hero that he is. Pray for David and share this story far and wide! –Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; @Peter LaBarbera

Christian Could Be Fired for Refusing to Watch LGBT ‘Inclusivity’ Video
By Fr. Mark Hodges
CHAMPAIGN, Illinois, September 15, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — A Christian’s 14-year career is being threatened because he refused to watch a training video on lesbian, homosexual, bisexual, transgender, and queer “diversity and inclusivity.”
In April, the Social Security Administration announced all employees must be trained in LGBTQ “diversity and inclusivity.” Longtime information technology employee David Hall, whose Christian convictions do not consider sodomy healthy or normal or good for people, believed that the “training” was against his sincerely held beliefs.
Specifically, Hall, 42, was told by his superiors to view a 17-minute video that includes “tips for increasing cultural awareness in a diverse and inclusive environment.”
Hall refused, explaining that the training endorses sinful behavior. “I’m not going to certify sin,” he explained to WCIA-TV.
Because he refused to participate in the LGBTQ agenda training, Hall was officially reprimanded and then suspended without pay.
Video does not mention ‘prostitution’ even though that is a major factor in violence against “male-to-female” transsexuals
Simplistic Stats: Criminal violence and abuse are always wrong, but the DOJ transgender police video never mentions the major role of prostitution in violence against “male-to-female” transsexuals. Above is homosexual D.C. cop Sgt. Brett Parson, who serves as narrator for the biased video. The above graphic (7:07 in the video) alludes to “1 in 4” transgender people being victimized in “hate crimes” allegedly “because of who they are.” This is simplistic and misleading since it ignores reckless behaviors and realities within the LGBTQ subculture–especially urban “transgender” (biological) men who prostitute themselves posing as “women.” Click to enlarge.
So Obama’s DOJ worked hand-in-hand with D.C.-area “transgender” and homosexual activists–including narrator and D.C.’s top “gay” cop Sgt. Brett Parson(pardon the pun)–to produce this tendentious video with its misleading “trans” advocacy talking points. Your tax dollars at work.
Note the video’s manipulative bias and lack of context, for example: 1) the bathroom scene in which the hetero mom holding a baby is the villain (and what about localities and businesses where it is not legal or allowed for men to use the women’s restroom?); and 2) how the word “prostitute” is not mentioned even though street hustling is a major factor in violence against “male to female” transsexuals. Can you think of anything more dangerous than a biological man walking the street (or being an escort) as a prostitute pretending to be a woman–offering his services to strange men who may think they are about to commit sex acts with someone who is really a woman?!
I wonder: when will the DOJ produce a video teaching sensitivity toward people of faith and those defending biblical morals? It is a sad day when our men and women in blue become change agents for a lobby promoting disordered sex and gender rebellion. More on the Obama administration’s extreme (and unchecked) LGBTQ agenda coming. — @Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH [A full transcript follows after the jump]:
