Peter LaBarbera, President of Americans for Truth, interviewed Susan Wright, Founder of the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom, on September 28, 2008, at the annual “Folsom Street Fair” in San Francisco. (LaBarbera and several other pro-family advocates were there to protest and document the open nudity that occurs every year, with police protection, at Folsom.) In this portion of amateur video shot by Diane Gramley of American Family Association of Pennsylvania, Wright affirms her belief that sadomasochism is a “sexual orientation.” (She referes to BDSM, which according to practitioners stands for “Bondage & Discipline, Domination & Submission, Sadism & Masochism.”) The first part of the video is a discussion about tolerance; start watching at 3:14 as it turns to behavior (as LaBarbera calls it) versus Wright’s view of “orientation.”
Warning: Offensive Language (after all, this is Dan Savage…)
Homosexual activist and atheist sex-columnist Dan Savage crassly attacks the pope and Christianity as a speaker at Elmhurst College, April 29, 2012, at the college’s historic Hammerschmidt Memorial Chapel. This amateur video was shot by John Kirkwood, pastor of Grace Gospel Fellowship, in Bensenville, Illinois. AFTAH will be providing further excepts of Savage’s speech at Elmhurst. The college shot video of the speech, but had not posted it as of May 1, 2012. We will add a transcript at the bottom. Also, note AFTAH’s new website button, “Savage Hate” (www.SavageHate.com), which will document Savage’s troubling record. – Peter LaBarbera, www.aftah.org
Atheist homosexual sex columnist errs in referring to wrong video in challenge to AFTAH president
Tweets by homosexual activist Dan Savage accuse AFTAH founder Peter LaBarbera of lying after LaBarbera accused Savage of “scubbing” hateful videos, including one bashing pro-family leader Tony Perkins and evangelicals as “asshol*e douchebags.” That video remains taken down as of April 29, 2012, despite LaBarbera’s request to Savage to re-post it.

By Peter LaBarbera
Talk about chutzpah: homosexual militant Dan Savage — creator of the despicable hate-site “Santorum.com” — has issued a public challenge to document his “hate speech.”
Yes, you read that correctly: only in the upside-down world of “gay” activism would a man who notoriously and proudly ”re-defined” Rick Santorum’s last name as “The frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the by-product of anal sex” — issue a challenge to find the hatred in his recorded words.
But here’s the kicker: at least one of the videos containing some of Savage’s rancorous attacks on Christians was taken down a few days ago, and remains down today (April 26, 2012).
Increasingly, conservatives (like Gina Miller) are paying attention to Savage, who despite his cruel antics and anti-Christian barbs continues to be lauded in media and academic circles. He even has his own, brand new show on MTV, about sex on college campuses. If there is anything that testifies to the sham of the liberal crusade against (ostensibly right-wing Christian) “hate” and “bullying,” it is the media’s, academia’s and pop culture’s rewarding of cyber-bully Savage.
Hiding his hate?
When my friend and Illinois Family Institute writer Laurie Higgins wrote a piece about Savage’s upcoming speeech at Elmurst College (Sunday, April 29, 2012 at 7:00; contact Elmhurst HERE), it appeared to Laurie (and to me) that Savage had responded to her article by removing one of more of his anti-evangelical-Christian videos from YouTube. Caught up in a moment of “gotcha,” on Thursday I tweeted Savage about allegedly “scrubbing” his videos. “Who’s the ‘pansy’ now, Dan?” I asked, referencing his taunt against offended Christian students who walked out on a recent Bible-bashing talk by Savage in Seattle. (And in deference to Savage, I’d have been fairer by simply asking him if he spiked the videos.)
It’s rare when I agree with (pro-homosexual-”marriage”) Chris Matthews, the fast-talking host of the MSNBC program “Hardball” — but here he hits the nail on the head. At a March 24 book signing in Framingham, Mass., Matthews was “ambushed” by video-camera-wielding activists with the pro-homosexual, leftist group Faithful America. They badgered him about having Tony Perkins, president of Family Research Council, on as a repeat guest on “Hardball.” Here’s Matthews’ response [more commentary after the video]:
Needless to say, Faithful America justifies its blacklisting campaign against Perkins on the basis of Family Research Council being (mis)labeled a “hate group” — by fellow left-wingers at GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) and the Southern Poverty Law Center. [See Faithful America's Youtube comments HERE.] Perkins is a good man who ably and articulately defends the historic Judeo-Christian sexual and marriage ethic, for which he is rewarded with the usual vitriol by embittered homosexual activists and bloggers. Anyone who has seen Perkins debate on TV can see he is not “hateful” in the least — nor is the respected family organization FRC (where I once worked as a cultural analyst).
Do you see what is happening? The intellectual cowards on the Left — puffed up by a compliant media and suffused with enough “gay pride” and arrogance to presume that their aberrant sexual/gender ideology has NO LEGITIMATE OPPOSITION — are busier than ever trying to bully the media into joining their “Pro-Gay-Only” crusade. It is despicable, but worse: it is a grave threat to American liberty. Because when the media en masse kowtow to censorious activists — a road on which they are quite far along with the Homosexual Lobby — accountability, reason and fairness are jettisoned, paving the way for ever more reckless and extreme pressure campaigns against the dreaded “haters.” (That would be you, me and just about anyone who takes a public stand against homosexual behavior or “gay” agenda goals like same-sex “marriage.”)
The following is the speech made by Matt Barber at the AFTAH-sponsored press conference January 17, 2012, outside the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) — condemning the SPLC’s politicized designation of Americans For Truth and other pro-family organizations as “hate groups.” Barber is Vice President of Liberty Counsel Action, and Board Chairman of AFTAH:

Here is an appearance from last Summer of my friend Randy Thomasson of SaveCalifornia.com, on Sacramento’s Fox-40′s live morning show (July 18, 2011). Randy has become a fervent advocate of parents pulling their children out of the public schools, especially in the wake of passage a SB 48, a California bill that mandates the teaching of homosexual, bisexual and transgender historical figures (read: pro-”gay”-activist history) in K-12 schools. The law went into effect January 1, 2012. Note Randy’s allusion to the law’s prohibition on negative information about homosexuality, which refers to the portion of the law that amends the Cal. Education Code as follows:
51501. The state board and any governing board shall not adopt any textbooks or other instructional materials for use in the public schools that contain any matter reflecting adversely upon persons on the basis of race or ethnicity, gender, religion, disability, nationality, sexual orientation, or because of a characteristic listed in Section 220.

TAKE ACTION: Read this WorldNetDaily article featuring AFTAH (reprinted at bottom) and AFTAH’s press release below — and call your elected representatives to urge them to strip out language from the DoD authorization bill that would repeal the military’s existing ban on SODOMY and BESTIALITY (we’re not kidding). The Pentagon bill was just passed overwhelmingly by the Senate.. Call 202-225-3121 for the House and 202-224-3121 for the Senate. Or go to www.Congress.org.
In America, homosexual perversion like this (recast as “gay” identity) is celebrated by liberal eliites. Now the Obama administration wants to promote the normalization of homosexuality to the world. The above graphic is an online ad for an HIV vaccine study involving homosexual men. For decency’s sake, we blocked the male-to-male kiss — which itself would be considered a “homophobic” act by Western “gay” activists who want to expose people to homosexual acts to desensitize them to this aberrant lifestyle.

AFTAH Says Obama’s and Hillary’s International ‘Gay Rights’ Push Will Only Alienate Nations Who Reject America’s Moral Corruption
CHICAGO – Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality, issued the following statement in response to the Obama Administration’s announcement Tuesday of a campaign to link American foreign aid to the promotion of homosexuality-based “rights” abroad [a YouTube of Sec. of State Hillary Clinton's U.N. speech follows] :
With their new escalation of promoting homosexual behavior to other nations through U.S. foreign policy, President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have raised America’s defiance toward her Creator to a new level — while needlessly alienating nations less morally compromised than our own. Not content to keep our decadence between our shores, the United States – through aggressively pro-“gay” Democratic administrations – now demands that other countries sink to our level by embracing homosexuality as a “human right.”
Who knew that when President Ronald Reagan spoke idealistically about America becoming a “shining city on the hill,” that city would turn out to be Sodom? Hillary earned plaudits from the Left with her U.N. speech on international “gay rights,” but her words were an affront to our Declaration of Independence, which appeals to “Nature and Nature’s God.”
By redefining “human rights” to include the normalization of same-sex behaviors and gender confusion, Obama and Clinton have turned God’s natural moral order on its head. There are many countries – including Muslim-dominated nations and major powers like Russia – that reject homosexuality. By pushing sexual deviance on these nations, we only confirm their perception of America as a corrupt and declining – and very arrogant — superpower.
America, rooted in the Bible, historically embraced anti-sodomy laws, but now we are in the grip of an unprecedented moral and spiritual crisis that blackens our reputation worldwide. As one Muslim tweeted in reaction to Obama’s international “gay rights” plan: “There is a great divide between the Founding Fathers and the pro-gay regime ruling America [today].”
Aberrant sexuality is not a fundamental liberty, and defending morality is not hateful “bigotry.” Hillary claims, “Being gay is not a Western invention, it is a human reality.” But homosexuality is about changeable behavior – not intrinsic, innate identity – as evidenced by countless men and women who now live happy lives apart from homosexuality, despite once considering themselves “gay” or “lesbian.”
