WATCH: Classic South Park Video – ‘My Safe Space’ – on Liberal Political Correctness

June 10th, 2016

Folks, this is by no means a blanket endorsement of Comedy Central’s South Park–which is pretty much an Equal Opportunity Offender and often vulgar. But here the creators nailed it on the growing phenomenon of liberal “safe spaces” designed to “protect” college students and other fragile “progressives” from ideas they don’t like. This 2-minute video has more than 2.2 million views on YouTube; my favorite line is at :53:

“people that support me
mixed in with,
more people that support me
and say nice things…”

Part One

Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) held a peaceful Christian truth outreach against the homosexual “International Mr. Leather” (IML) conference Saturday night (May 28, 2016), across the street from the Chicago’s Congress Plaza Hotel, which hosted the perversion-fest.

Every year, on Memorial Day weekend, IML draws thousands of mostly homosexual “leathermen” from all over the world to a swank Chicago hotel to party, celebrate sadomasochistic deviance and practice some of the most heinous sexual acts invented by men–as well as everyday sodomies. In concert with IML, several orgiastic dance parties such as the “Black & Blue Ball” (sponsored in part by Miller Lite) are held in various Chicago venues. Here is the banner we used in our truth outreach:

Congress Plaza Hotel Profits Off Perversion

Homosexual “Mr. Leather” conference glorifies vile & dangerous behaviors

IML_2016_AFTAH_Outreach_Banner

Protesting Perversion and Sharing the Gospel: AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera (left) and Rob share truth Saturday night outside the Congress Plaza Hotel in Chicago, as it hosted the annual “International Mr. Leather” homosexual perversion-fest. The banner reads, “Congress Plaza Hotel Profits Off Perversion: Homosexual ‘Mr. Leather’ conference glorifies vile & dangerous behaviors.” The smaller yellow sign is taken from Acts 3:19: “Repent…and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out…” The two men had many interesting conversations with IML attendees, in a spirit of civility. Click to enlarge.

My compatriot Rob and I walked through the IML “Leather Market” Saturday [more on that in the next article], then stood across the street from the Congress Plaza Hotel on the city’s famed Michigan Avenue for about five hours, leaving at midnight. The fact that we were not angrily shouting at the attendees softened the reaction to our message, although there was plenty of hostility to us.

A man named Lee wearing a “golden shower” t-shirt–that’s slang for the perverse fetish in which a man urinates on (or in) another man (or men) for sexual pleasure–approached us and we began bantering back and forth with us on various points of morality and theology. A smart, fast-talking man and an agnostic of sorts, Lee said he embraced homosexuality several years ago after being married and having children. He strongly opposed our message that homosexual behaviors are immoral but he appreciated our non-confrontational, friendly tone and several times stepped between us and IML attendees who might have harassed us or worse.

Strangely, Lee took it upon himself to serve as our “protector” throughout the night. At one point he even laughingly yelled “bad homos” to some people gathered across the street at the hotel who were shouting chants against us. Here he can be seen on the right with his perverse t-shirt; that’s a “Sister of Perpetual Indulgence” drag queen in the center behind the autho:

An IML attendee named Lee

An IML attendee named Lee (at right) took it upon himself to protect AFTAH’s two Truth emissaries from overly hostile homosexual activists. In the cap holding the sign is Peter LaBarbera. Behind him–the man in drag with white face and a cross–is a member of the “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence,” a homosexual “troup” of drag-queens who mock Catholic nuns and Christianity in general while raising funds for various “gay”-related causes. See the Sisters’ wicked “Hunky Jesus” contest–mocking the Resurrection and held every Easter Sunday in a San Francisco. Click to enlarge.

We had many people praying for our protection at the IML outreach, so Rob and I took Lee’s presence as an answer to those prayers. Please pray for Lee and the others with whom we had discussions, including this wretched soul of a man wearing only a diaper and a leather harness:

IML_2016_Man_in_Diaper

Satan Is Laughing… But we wanted to cry: this young man (“Eamon”) wearing a diaper and a leather harness walked across the street from Congress Plaza Hotel with some others, and spoke briefly with AFTAH’s Peter LaBarbera. Pray for this lost soul, that God in His mercy will rescue him from the ravages of deviance and exploitation.

I spoke briefly with this pitiful fellow in a diaper–I think he said his name is Eamon–and urged him to read the Gospel of John in the New Testament. My heart was breaking as I tried to tell him above the surrounding noise that God has a better plan for his life, that He does not want to see people–made in His image–degraded and exploited. But Eamon was obviously drunk or high on something so I’m not sure if he will even remember our encounter. Pray that somehow the Lord in His infinite grace and mercy will rescue him.

Sodomites All – Classic Joe Sobran Essay on Court-Imposed Homosexual ‘Marriage’

May 26th, 2016
Joe Sobran, 1946-2010

Joe Sobran, 1946-2010

Folks, I generally avoid using the term “sodomites”**–it too easily plays into the hands of anti-Christians–but who am I to make a politically correct edit on the late Joe Sobran, one of the greatest conservative writers of modern times? This essay by Sobran is even more applicable today than when he penned it in 2003, following the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court’s creation of a newfangled “right” to homosexuality-based “marriage.”

I particularly like Sobran’s passage on liberalism:

But liberalism itself is a continual digression. Nobody can divine its next trend. Even its most profound critics, including John Henry Newman, have been unable to anticipate its particular fads. It may, or may not, embrace pedophilia next. On what principle can any perversion be ruled out?

Such is the nature of God-defying, sin-as-a-civil-right modern “progressivism.” And now the Sexual Left–having legally destroyed the meaning of marriage with the eager help of the U.S. Supreme Court–has moved on to “mainstreaming” and mandating accommodation for: (trans)gender rebels–think men with fake boobs and a penis invading female restrooms; sadomasochism; men becoming human “dogs”; and “polyamory” (anti-fidelity).

As for pedophilia, that lobby is still gearing up–mimicking the successful, manipulative tactics of the “gay liberation” movement by portraying themselves as the aggrieved “victims” of an inconvenient “orientation.” (See this “support group” for “Minor Attracted Persons,” or MAPs.) Of course, we know who the real victims are.

If only more conservatives who possessed the moral clarity of Joe Sobran! –– Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; @PeterLaBarbera

** P.S. I will grant that “Sodomite”–linked to the abominable act that demanded God’s horrific punishment–is more accurate than “homosexual,” a 19th-Century semantic invention that itself has been declared anathema by today’s LGBTQ activists. (They prefer “gay” for men and women–which we put in quotes because it’s essentially self-serving propaganda.) Homosexual (as a noun)–though used clinically at first–came to imply a special personhood to de facto homo-sexual sinners, i.e., an innate or at least inherent–even proud!–self-identity based on his or her inclination toward same-sex deviance. Logical (and biblical) thinkers must never acquiesce to such a false identity–unless we also are prepared to label and confirm people as (inherent or inborn) liars, “pornos,” gossipers, drunks, etc., according to their besetting sinful thoughts and behaviors.

The ‘Transgender’ Lobby’s Civil Rights Con – Common Sense Bathroom Laws Are Nothing Like Racist Jim Crow Laws

May 19th, 2016
Bruce Smith Jr., founder of Purity Quest Ministries and author of "The Truth About Homosexuality."

Bruce Smith Jr., founder of Purity Quest Ministries and author of “The Truth About Homosexuality.”

“Race and Transgenderism are utterly incomparable, and so are common sense bathroom laws and racist segregation. Yet this hasn’t stopped immoralists and pro-LGBT advocates from drawing a false equivalence between the two.”–Bruce Smith Jr.

Folks, we welcome Bruce Smith Jr., founder of Purity Quest Ministries, as a contributor to Americans For Truth. Smith analyzes the LGBT analogy between “transgender women” (men in dresses) being denied entry into female restrooms and racist Jim Crow laws of the past. Former GOP presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson has called such analogies “a bunch of crap,” and we agree. Smith is also the author of the book, The Truth About Homosexuality, which I encourage you to purchase.–Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; @PeterLaBarbera

By Bruce Smith Jr.

We’re being lied to and the liars at the fore of the “transgender” movement hope we don’t notice. The problem is their falsehoods are so obvious that it is impossible to overlook them– except for those who just aren’t paying attention and the liberals who actually believe the lies are true.

In any case, it is time to set the record straight on the “transgender” activist movement, the lies on which it is based, and the liars that are perpetuating this insanity.

Let’s begin with the term itself. The common liberal definition of “transgender” is a person trapped inside the body of the opposite sex. This is telling because it assumes that it is possible for someone to be trapped in the wrong body, which is a false assumption. Moreover, it establishes that “transgenderism” is based entirely on feelings and opinions; it is a concept that only exists in the mind of the subject.

Race_Is_Not_A_Feeling_Graphic_Bruce_Smith_QuoteThus, “transgenderism” is subjective not objective. In other words, it does not correspond to reality. This is why “transgenderism” has been diagnosed as a “gender identity disorder.”

Race, on the other hand, is objective. I am a multiracial man—some would say person of color; that is a fact. Race is not limited to the mind of the subject. It is actual, it corresponds with reality and is verifiable.

Why ‘Transgenders’ Should Not Be Allowed to Choose a Public Bathroom by their ‘Gender Identity’

May 10th, 2016
Upside-Down: Like homosexual activists before them, "transgender ideologues say the problem is with society, not them. This is a 2014 tweet

Upside-Down: Like homosexual activists before them, “transgender” ideologues say the problem is with society, not them. This 2014 tweet (in the “transgender pride” colors of baby blue and pink) by Transgender Graphics reads: “There’s nothing wrong with you. There’s a lot wrong with the world you live in.”–Chris Colfer (actor and former Glee star). Click to enlarge.

By Sharon Kass

When it comes to social issues, conservatives from all walks of life need to be able to make brief, concise, multi-faceted arguments.  On the transgenders-in-public-bathrooms issue, here is mine:

  1. The need and wish for modesty between males and females is the original and eternal justification for sex-segregated, public, multi-use bathrooms.
  1. The Equal Protection Clause (EPC) of the Fourteenth Amendment did not originally, and does not now, apply to the sexes.
  1. Even supposing that the EPC did apply to the sexes to some degree, the S. Supreme Court has repeatedly stated that, based on fact, the sexes are not “similarly situated” in all situations and that the law may recognize this.  Relevant cases include Reed v. Reed(1971), Rinaldi v. Yeager (1966), Parham v. Hughes (1979), Califano v. Webster (1977), Schlesinger v. Ballard (1975) and Kahn v. Shevin (1974).

AFTAH in the News: Peter LaBarbera’s Interviews with Christian Radio and Conservative Media

May 9th, 2016

Americans for Truth About Homosexuality has been busy doing what AFTAH does best: exposing the radical-as-ever LGBTQ agenda–see this photo-story about an evil “CLAW leather weekend” sponsored & hosted by the Holiday Inn-S. Cleveland and Embassy Suites hotels in Independence, OH. AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera continues to appear as a voice for sanity on conservative media and Christian radio. Here are some of his recent media appearances:

  • Life Site News: Seattle Mayor Signs Exec. Order for Men to Access Women’s: Bathrooms: “People who suffer from gender dysphoria do not need the government to affirm their aberrant desires and turn them into a supposed ‘civil right,’ LaBarbera [told LifeSite]. “They need to get real help – because men cannot become women, and women cannot become men.” [click here]
  • Janet Mefferd Show: Target & Transgenderism: I recently appeared on Dallas-based Christian talker Janet Mefferd’s show to discuss Target’s transgender bathroom policy and the Day of Silence. My interview begins at approximately 25 minutes. [click here]
  • WVCY America “Crosstalk“: GLSEN Day of Silence: In one of my regular appearances on this excellent Christian radio show out of Milwaukee, on April 14 I discussed the homosexual activist “Day of Silence” [click here]
  • AFA “Sandy Rios in the Morning” show: Target Boycott: I discussed the “gay/transgender” revolution and the AFA Target boycott with Sandy Rios on April 25. Sandy’s monologue on this topic begins at approximately 20 minutes, and my remarks begin around the 25-minute mark. [click here]
  • Tami Jackson Show: Joining the Target Boycott: I talked May 3 with Christian talker Tami Jackson about my article, “Why My Family Won’t Be Shopping at Target Stores Anymore.” [click here]

Summary: Part One:

  • Two Cleveland hotels, Holiday Inn Cleveland-South and Embassy Suites, both in Independence, OH, jointly sponsor homosexual “leather weekend” conference called CLAW. Holiday Inn also hosted the deviance celebration last year;
  • CLAW rented the entire Holiday Inn hotel, for three days, April 28-May 1–even closing the bar and restaurant (like the rest of the hotel) to the public for this private perversion-fest;
  • CLAW celebrates the most extreme and vile sexual behaviors invented by sinful men–including Fisting, Rimming, Scat, Watersports (involving urine), Master-Slave “relationships,” and a twisted “Puppy” fetish in which men become human “dogs” for their “masters.” This is sexual anarchy and as sick and satanic as it gets;
  • One CLAW workshop, “Fisting A to Z,” instructs homosexual men on how to “fist”–a bizarre and dangerous sadomasochistic perversion in which a man inserts his hand and forearm into the rectum and lower colon of his fisting partner [see below];
  • The “fisting” workshop advertised a “hands-in” demonstration–i.e., the disgusting act apparently was performed in the Holiday Inn conference room advertised for the session [see below];
  • CLAW, like other homosexual male “leather” conventions, features deviant-sex orgies–and apparently not just in hotel rooms–which the poor maids are forced to clean up;
  • Another CLAW workshop, titled “Down in the Brown,” was about the “scat” fetish–essentially eroticizing poop (feces). It was held in the Embassy Suites Con 1 meeting room [see below]
  • The non-profit CLAW calls itself a “charity” and raises money for homosexual activist groups like GLSEN, PFLAG and Equality Ohio.
  • Next year’s CLAW is advertised as being held at the Westin Cleveland Downtown [Phone: 216-771-7700; ask for Gen. Manager Bob Megazzini]

‘Fisting’ Perversion Class at the Holiday Inn: Page from the CLAW (Cleveland Leather Annual Weekend) website shows a “Fisting A to Z” class at the annual deviance sex celebration. Note (circled in yellow) the host Holiday Inn Cleveland South – Independence, OH as a sponsor of CLAW. A hotel employee described the private sadomasochistic all-hotel event to a caller as an “All Men’s Leather Convention.” Click to enlarge.

One of the features of post-Sexual Revolution and LGBT-friendly America is that the most vile misbehaviors invented by mankind increasingly are committed out in the open–with the full cooperation of corporations, which profit off of the organized perversion. Apparently no deviant behavior act or group is too vile not to be accommodated by big businesses in sexually “liberated” America.

Such was the case in Cleveland over the weekend, where an event featuring the most heinous deviant sex-fetishes ever conceived–including “fisting”–was not only hosted but sponsored by the Holiday Inn Cleveland South, in Independence, Ohio. The annual event is called CLAW: Cleveland Leather Annual Weekend–and it drew mostly homosexual “leathermen” from across the country and beyond. (The same Holiday Inn hotel sponsored last year’s CLAW, drawing around 1,500, according to organizers.)

CLAW organizers rented the entire Holiday Inn hotel–with 363 rooms–closing it to the public for three days. The event was co-hosted by the nearby Embassy Suites Cleveland-RocksideThese hotels allowed some of their meeting rooms and (I suspect) pools to become orgy spaces—-as the above graphic for the CLAW 2016 “Fisting A-Z” class held in a Holiday Inn conference room above shows. (“Fisting” is a bizarre fetish invented by homosexual men in which a man inserts his hand and forearm into the rectum and lower colon of his “partner.”

The “Fisting A to Z” class advertised a “hands-in” (as opposed to a “hands on”) demo (demonstration), held in the Hercules 277 meeting room at the Holiday Inn Cleveland South. Here is the “class” description:

Fisting A to Z

In addition to covering the basics of a fisting session and fisting play parties, we will cover as many letters of the alphabet as time allows — Anatomy, Breathing, Cleaning, Dildos, Eating and so forth.

And we will have a hands-in demo.

It’s Not Just About Bathrooms: Why My Family Won’t Be Shopping at Target Stores Anymore

May 2nd, 2016

In addition to allowing men in female restrooms, Target backs radical LGBT “Equality Act”; boasts 100% perfect score on HRC’s rigged “Corporate Equality Index”

target-3Folks, today I sent the following letter to Target using their online Contact Form. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH

TAKE ACTION: Contact Target at 800-440-0680 or using their Online Contact Form; and sign the AFA “Boycott Target” petition if you plan to join the boycott. If you do, make a point of going into your local Target store or calling the manager to explain why you and your family will no longer shop there. 

Target-Brags-100-Percent_HRC-Corporate_Equality_Index-Web_Page_5-2-16

TARGET: 100% Pro-Homosexual-Transgender Agenda: Target boasts online of its “perfect” ranking on HRC’s rigged “Corporate Equality Index.” The biased LGBT “Index” punishes corporations for giving to pro-family causes–and rewards them for funding “gay” and “transgender” groups and events. This graphic is taken directly from the Target website.

Why My Family Won’t Be Shopping at Target Stores Anymore

May 2, 2016

By Peter LaBarbera

WARNING: offensive descriptions of horrifying transsexual “sex reassignment surgeries”

Dear Target,

My family and I are joining the Target boycott and will no longer shop at your stores. It is preposterous that all Target stores now allow men to use female restrooms—a sex predator’s dream. Girls have the basic right not to have their private spaces invaded by men, for ANY reason.

My family has done a LOT of shopping at Target over the years, but no more. One of my five children even worked at Target–but now I will not allow my two teenage kids to apply for a job there given Target’s leftist, politically correct corporate policies. Target has chosen to be contemptuous of common sense and Americans who are motivated by faith, decency and traditional morality. So we in turn choose to no longer support Target with our consumer dollars.
