Fox anchor silent as he was routinely “outed” by homosexual journalists;
Shep has history of making anti-conservative comments on air:
“Haters gonna hate,” he quipped about Kim Davis
Ridiculed 2012 “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day,” calling it “National Day of Intolerance”
Editor’s Note: this article was revised Oct. 20, 2016
The Non-Secret Is “Out”: D.C.’s homosexual newspaper Washington Blade reported in 2014 that Shep Smith was a “closeted” (secret) homosexual. Here he attends a fund-raiser for the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association–which is funded by Fox News and other media corporations. Smith is the man on the farthest right. Read America’s Survival’s 2013 in-depth report on Fox’s escalation pro-homosexual bias HERE.
Well, we called it on Shep, but so did just about every other conservative who is in the know about Fox News: the network’s afternoon news anchor, Shepard Smith, has publicly “come out” as homosexual, in an interview with Huffington Post. Notice that we reject the modern vernacular, that Shep “came out as gay,” because we regard every personal “coming out” embracing homosexuality as a tragedy. Shep is not nobly walking into truth, he’s publicly embracing a lie–identifying himself positively with a sexual sin.
The main reason we predicted this sad news is that Shep never denied it when homosexual “journalists” like the editors at OUT magazine routinely labeled him as a “closeted” homosexual. No normal guy doesn’t deny that. And a guy who is struggling to overcome unwanted same-sex desires doesn’t show up for happy photos at a homosexual journalists fundraiser (the same group that once auctioned off a male stripper to raise funds).
Identifying publicly with a destructive and unnatural sin is a problem–not something to proud of, nor a natural identity, nor even a mere acknowledgement of an innocuous trait. We’re not buying it–as so many lazy thinkers in our country have–that Shep is inherently (or innately) “gay.”Hopefully one day he will ditch the lie and leave homosexuality behind, as so many people have.
In the HuffPo interview, Smith and his puff interviewer play up his “newsman” credentials–and he certainly is the guy to watch during, say, a terrorism crisis or natural disaster. But in covering cultural and political stories, Shep occasionally departs from objectivity and moves into–sometimes scathing–commentary that exposes his liberal bias. Exhibit A: his cheap shot at the hundreds of thousands of Americans taking part in Gov. Mike Huckabee’s 2012 “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” (see below).
As we have observed many times, “out” media elites have difficulty keeping their “proudly gay” politics from from influencing their public conduct. So we expect that the more comfortable Smith becomes in his “openly gay” shoes, the more he will let slip those unprofessional pro-“gay” quips that generally evince a contempt for religious and moral Americans.
LGBTQ Liberalism Is Destroying Young Women’s Bodies: Alex Matheny, 20, shows off her “transgender” “top surgery” at right after she had her healthy breasts surgically removed to have a flat chest like the “man” she wants to be (and yet never can be). At left is photo of Alex as a beautiful girl a few years ago in high school. Ideas have consequences, and the “transgender” ideology pushed by powerful LGBTQ groups like the Human Rights Campaign is leading thousands of youth to mutilate their bodies to fulfill a disordered fantasy of becoming the opposite sex. This dangerous agenda is most aggressive in deep-blue states like Washington and Oregon. Matheny is shown October 6, 2016, one month after her breast-removal operation; at this point she had been on (male) testosterone hormone therapy for about nine months.

Folks, here is another column on gender insanity by Linda Harvey, who is the keynote speaker at the AFTAH dinner-banquet in less than two weeks, on Friday, October 28, 2016 at Grace Gospel Fellowship Church, in Bensenville, Illinois (in northwest suburban Chicago).

The Worst State to Raise Children
By Linda Harvey, first published by WND.com Oct. 9, 2016
Warning: This column contains graphic content.
Linda Harvey comes to Chicagoland for the annual AFTAH dinner-banquet Friday, Oct. 28. Tickets are just $25/person. Full details HERE.
It’s official: Oregon is in free-fall.
And if possible, you really don’t want to raise children there until some big changes are made.
Among a badly behaving peer group – the rest of the states in the U.S. – Oregon still sinks below them all, even radical Massachusetts and loony California.
It’s not just the legalized marijuana and assisted suicide. It’s not just the bisexual governor and the after-school Satan clubs that some Portlandia-dazed educators have welcomed.
Oregon’s liberals – who dominate the government and schools – consider children guinea pigs for grotesque experiments in sexual and spiritual corruption. Praise God for the few Christians and conservatives who have managed to limit these programs to some extent.
But much more remains to be done to protect Oregon’s children from permanent harm.
Consider these facts:
In Oregon, a 15-year-old can now embark on hormone and sex-change surgical treatment without a parent’s consent, paid for by Medicaid. This policy was quietly enacted in 2015 by an appointed commission of the Oregon Health Authority. Judicial Watch accessed documents and found that 56 children were treated for gender “assessment” in the first six months of the program, some under age 9.
Dr. Paul McHugh, former psychiatrist-in-chief at Johns Hopkins University, has called the Oregon policy for gender-confused youth “child abuse” and that such operations for youth are “never appropriate.”
The option for young teens to have healthy breasts and penises amputated is being advocated through the many school-based health clinics that bypass parental rights to advise children about intimate issues and often refer them to Planned Parenthood. Among the services the clinics promote for minor children are “reproductive health” and counseling for “LGBTQ” issues.
So middle-school girls are given birth control and referrals to Planned Parenthood, and students questioning their sexuality will most likely be told, inaccurately, that some people are “born that way” and that such sexual expression is just as natural as heterosexuality.
Homosexual Halo, Sinful Agenda: Newsweek magazine in 2012 declared Obama “the first gay president”–as their openly homosexual writer, Andrew Sullivan, championed Obama’s far-left commitment to “transforming” America in a pro-homosexual and pro-“transgender” direction. Click to enlarge.
Dear AFTAH Readers,
What a shock: President Obama–the same man who fibbed to U.S. voters in 2008 about his pious opposition to homosexual “marriage”–was truth-challenged again about what led up to his disastrous “transgender,” men-and-boys-in-female-restrooms Executive Order.
Always remember this: the self-righteous Left employs an “End Justifies the Means” approach because, in their foolish pride, they define their entire agenda–no matter how depraved or extreme its policies–as morally superior to their reactionary, “hateful” opponents. (Think partial-birth infanticide abortion and taxpayer-funded transsexual healthy-body-mutilations “sex-reassignment surgeries.”)
So a few lies here and a few lies there are no big deal if that’s what it takes to “transform” America in the direction of “equality” (GaySpeak for radical egalitarianism falsely equating natural heterosexuality and marriage with deviant-sex/confused-gender immorality)…Can I get a smug leftist amen?
Kudos to Eugene Delgaudio and Public Advocate for digging this nugget of truth out. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH
FALLS CHURCH, Va., Oct. 14, 2016 /Christian Newswire/ — The White House authorized the release of 424 pages of documents containing very little evidence to support President Obama’s assertion that a “growing chorus” had complained about transgender bathroom and shower policies, proving his public statements made earlier this month on transgender policies a fraud.H
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.”
Catholic League issued the following press release October 12, 2016, based upon emails illegally obtained by Wikile
aks from Hillary Clinton campaign chief John Podesta that encourage a liberal revolution from within against traditional Catholicism. Notice Donohue’s remarks about the creation of “progressive” “Catholic” front groups with nice-sounding names like “Catholics United.” The same is happening on the evangelical side with leftists groups like “Faithful America“–which smears faith-based pro-family organizations like AFTAH and Family Research Council as “hate groups” not truly representing Christians. These leftist front groups have had success in pressuring the media to deny media coverage to conservative groups relying on the spurious “hate” narrative so prevalent on the Left. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH
From the Catholic League:
Podesta Must Now Be Fired
Yesterday, I stopped short of asking Hillary Clinton to fire John Podesta, her campaign chairman. In light of the latest Wikileaks revelations, she has no choice but to cut all ties with this man. The man is hell bent on creating mutiny in the Catholic Church and must therefore be fired.
We have long known that George Soros is the single most influential donor to dissident, and anti-Catholic, organizations. Now we know from Wikileaks what I long have suspected: John Podesta has been the most influential point man running offense for Soros. Together, they have sought to manipulate public opinion against the Catholic Church.
In 2012, Sandy Newman, founder of the left-wing group, Voices for Progress, asked Podesta for advice on how best to “plant the seeds of the revolution.” The revolution he sought was an attempt to sunder the Catholic Church. Newman, who is Jewish, confessed that he was a rookie at trying to subvert the Catholic Church. But he was determined to do so.
“There needs to be a Catholic Spring,” Newman told Podesta, “in which Catholics themselves demand the end of a middle ages dictatorship and the beginning of a little democracy and respect for gender equality in the Catholic Church.”
Folks, we’re catching up on “AFTAH in the News” items. Here’s a story about the hit animated movie “Frozen” from back in May by Charlie Butts and Billy Davis of AFA’s One News Now–featuring AFTAH commenting on the pro-homosexual/-transgender lobby’s fanatical drive to use Hollywood to normalize their deviancies.
Isn’t it interesting that even though LGBTQ characters are over represented on film and TV relative to the homosexual population, “gay” and now “transgender” activists still play the victim card and demand MORE homosexual and gender-confused characters!
We must resist LGBT pressure campaigns like this and stop merely “taking it” from the aggressive Left, because due to ubiquitous pro-“queer” (their word) propaganda, impressionable kids are more confused about sex and gender than ever. – – Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH.org
LGBT Activists Just Can’t ‘Let It Go’
Tuesday, May 10, 2016

“He’s craaazy,” Olaf the Snowman declared in the Disney’s hit film Frozen.
Olaf could have been talking about homosexual activists instead of an iceman talking to rocks.
“It’s about time that parents start doing something to combat this,” pro-family advocate Peter LaBarbera says of the social media push to involve homosexuality in a Frozen sequel.
LaBarbera is responding to the effort that began May 2, when a Twitter campaign took off with the hash tag “#GiveElsaAGirlfriend.”
“Elsa” is the lead character inFrozen, which became another Disney hit in 2013 and earned more than one billion dollars at the box office. A sequel is being planned, Disney announced in March.
“We cannot keep rewarding Hollywood,” LaBarbera says, “when they’re pushing homosexuality, and sexual and gender deviance, on the kids.”
Stephen Black “came out” of the homosexual lifestyle and is now happily married and a father. Black is executive director of First Stone Ministries and a Board Member of the Restored Hope Network.
There are so many LGBTQ activist celebration days that it’s getting difficult to keep track of them all. There is the “Day of Silence” (homosexual-bisexual-transgender activism in schools); National Day of Transgender Remembrance (November 20); IDAHOT (International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia), and World AIDS Day (December 1). The reliably-left Wikipedia has a list of them HERE.
Another such day is “National Coming Out Day” (NCOD), marked by pro-“gay” and pro-“transgender” advocates every October 11. Here is a history of NCOD as provided by the world’s largest LGBTQ lobby organization, Human Rights Campaign:
On Oct. 11, 1987, half a million people participated in the March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights. It was the second such demonstration in our nation’s capital and resulted in the founding of a number of LGBTQ organizations, including the National Latino/a Gay & Lesbian Organization (LLEGÓ) and AT&T’s LGBTQ employee group, LEAGUE. The momentum continued four months after this extraordinary march as more than 100 lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer activists from around the country gathered in Manassas, Va., about 25 miles outside Washington, D.C. Recognizing that the LGBTQ community often reacted defensively to anti-LGBTQ actions, they came up with the idea of a national day to celebrate coming out and chose the anniversary of that second march on Washington to mark it…. From this idea the National Coming Out Day was born.
Each year on Oct. 11, National Coming Out Day continues to promote a safe world for LGBTQ individuals to live truthfully and openly.
Every LGBTQ Coming Out is a tragedy
I have said for many years that every pro-homosexual “coming out” is a tragedy. It is not “coming out” of a dark “closet” representing fear, self-loathing and lies–as LGBTQ activists would have us believe (although we all should have deep sympathy for the traumatic life experiences of so many homosexuals–particularly those victimized as youth). Rather, it is a “coming in” TO darkness–as the public embrace of sin is always spiritual darkness. [For thorough scholarship on the Bible’s clear proscription of homo-sexual behavior as sinful, see Prof. Robert Gagnon’s website.
Even if people feel better after embracing sexually aberrant identities, it does not justify their choice to identify with and celebrate immorality and behaviors God abhors. And of course, when one identifies his or her life with a sexual perversion and a sin against God–he or she is not coming into the “truth” but is actually living a new, public lie.
MONTGOMERY, AL – Oct. 5, 2016 — Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore has filed an appeal of the decision issued by the Court of the Judiciary (COJ) on September 30 to suspend him for the remainder of his term, which runs through January 2019. A new panel of judges will need to convene to hear the case and all the sitting justices should be recused.
The Judicial Inquiry Commission (JIC) previously requested that the Chief Justice be removed from the bench. Under the COJ rules, removal requires a unanimous 9-0 vote by the members of the COJ, which is made up of judges, a lawyer and laypeople. Absent a 9-0 unanimous vote, the COJ cannot remove a judge from the bench. But in an unbelievable violation of the law, the COJ suspended him without pay for the remainder of his term. When his term expires, he will be ineligible to run again for election as judge due to his age. So the suspension until the end of his term is a de facto removal from the bench.
“Liberty Counsel and the Chief Justice have appealed this case to the Alabama Supreme Court. These baseless charges should be dismissed and the Chief Justice should be reinstated,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. “To suspend Chief Justice Moore for the duration of his term is a miscarriage of justice and the same as removal. The COJ lacked the unanimous votes to remove the Chief, so the majority instead chose to ignore the law and the rules. We will continue the fight for justice to prevail in this case.”
Liberty Counsel is an international nonprofit, litigation, education, and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life, and the family since 1989, by providing pro bono assistance and representation on these and related topics.
