REMINDER: Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. Saw Homosexuality as a ‘Problem’ that Could Be ‘Solved’

January 16th, 2017

First posted in 2014:

Folks, I saw this on Twitter. The conservative news site Hawaii Free Press identifies the Ebony issue in which this advice column by Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. appeared as January 1958.  HFP, citing CNN, offers the full Q & A with King, which we have reprinted under the graphic. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; @PeterLaBarbera

MLK-Homosexuality-Problem-2

Full text of MLK Ebony column:

Question: My problem is different from the ones most people have. I am a boy, but I feel about boys the way I ought to feel about girls. I don’t want my parents to know about me. What can I do? Is there any place where I can go for help?

Answer: Your problem is not at all an uncommon one. However, it does require careful attention. The type of feeling that you have toward boys is probably not an innate tendency, but something that has been culturally acquired. Your reasons for adopting this habit have now been consciously suppressed or unconsciously repressed. Therefore, it is necessary to deal with this problem by getting back to some of the experiences and circumstances that lead to the habit. In order to do this I would suggest that you see a good psychiatrist who can assist you in bringing to the forefront of conscience all of those experiences and circumstances that lead to the habit. You are already on the right road toward a solution, since you honestly recognize the problem and have a desire to solve it.

‘I Now Pronounce You Man and Robot’ – Michael Brown on ‘Robosexuals’

January 2nd, 2017

Once you destroy the male-female boundary for marriage that has stood since the beginning of time, all boundaries are open to question. Ditto for male, female and “gender identities.” — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH

Why Can’t I Marry the Robot I Love? The Rise of Robosexuals

By Dr. Michael Borwn, 12/23/16, reprinted from the excellent Charisma media website; subscribe HERE

Do people have the right to marry the one they love, even if the one they love is a robot? If not, why not? After all, in the words of Lilly from France, who has fallen in love with her robot, “We don’t hurt anybody; we are just happy.”

Isn’t that what matters in the end, that people are happy?

Lilly calls herself a “proud robosexual,” and she fully plans on marrying her robot, whom she named InMoovator.

As explained in the Daily Mail, “Lilly is reportedly engaged to the robot and says they will marry when human-robot marriage is legalized in France.”

But why should this surprise us? People have not only married their same-sex spouses (which has the merit of joining together fellow-humans, albeit completely opposite to the God-ordained male-female pattern), but they have married animals and inanimate objects and, with increasing frequency, married themselves.

Indeed, it was just a few days ago that Good Housekeeping—not some radical, far-out, tabloid—ran the story, “WHY I MARRIED MYSELF. Self-marriage is a small but growing movement around the world.”

Help AFTAH Counter the ‘LGBTQ’ Revolution!

December 31st, 2016

We are hated by the LGBTQ Lobby because we expose their lies

Perhaps as a homosexual man Peter Thiel does not understand this, but most women do not want men with penises wearing dresses (like this fellow at the recent "International Mr. Leather" perversion-fest in Chicago) to occupy a restroom with them.

Truth in Love: AFTAH reached out in June 2016 with truth in Christian love to men like this attending the annual Chicago sadomasochism perversion celebration known as “International Mr. Leather”. Now that homosexuality is normalized to many millions of Americans, LGBTQ activists and the media are working to promote the acceptance of related perversions like S&M and “pansexuality.” Donate to AFTAH safely online here.

Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) is one of the few organizations in the world that directly fights and exposes the homosexual-bisexual-lesbian-transgender-sadomasochism-pansexual-[insert latest perversion here] agenda.

Please help us defend moral Truth and expose the reality of the destructive anti-Christian LGBTQueer movement. You help make our work possible with your donations–go HERE to give safely online with our user-friendly form!

________________

AFTAH is the conscience of the pro-family movement on the “gay agenda.”  We simply don’t do “PC” (Political Correctness).  For example, we don’t pretend like some other pro-family groups that the homosexual “marriage” debate is somehow NOT about homosexuality (of course it is)

AFTAH exposes many of the hard truths about the “gay” and “trans” movement that most groups and ministries shy away from. [See our photo-story on New York City’s 2015 homosexual-bisexual-transgender-sadomasochism “pride’ parade–sponsored in part by Walmart.]

And while we love sinners as Jesus does, and condemn real “hate” (toward anyone), we do not “love” or respect homosexualism, transsexualism–or any other branch of deviant “gay” sexual ideology and behavior–which are at war with God’s plan for sex, marriage and family.

Sin is neither a “civil right” nor the basis for a healthy identity, which is why AFTAH celebrates godly EX-“gay” change, while the leftist, corrupt media kowtows to Big Gay Inc by ignoring the wonderful stories of people “coming out” FROM homosexuality. (Of course, the same media love to do sympathetic puff-pieces about people “coming out” publicly INTO homosexuality.)

Hating AFTAH for Telling the Truth

twitter_alex_matheny_from_pretty_girl_to_pretend_man_aftah-graphic

LGBTQ ‘Progressivism’ Harms Youth: Our hearts break for the young people who are being led to harm their God-given bodies in pursuit of a fantasy to live as the opposite sex. Click on photo to enlarge.

We at Americans For Truth are on the receiving end of a lot of leftist hate simply because we fight against the trendy lies of the LGBTQueer movement–which these days center around extreme gender confusion.

Recently, a young female-to-“male” transgender activist named Alex Matheny threatened to sue me because Americans For Truth published ‘before-and-after’ photos of her tragic gender “transition.”

This deeply confused young woman had her healthy breasts surgically removed to look like the man she can never be. She chronicled her body changes online leading up to and after the operation destroying her healthy female breasts. AFTAH simply published Alex’s photos of herself that she had posted on Twitter. That’s called free speech, but Alex was irate and threatened to sue us. Please pray for her.

Thank you for helping to make our unique work possible! God bless you. — Peter LaBarbera, president, AFTAH; americansfortruth@gmail.com

2016: The Year Walmart Went 100-Percent ‘Gay’

December 31st, 2016

Walmart funds leftist homosexual groups and perverse LGBTQueer “pride” parades, markets “gay” products like “Heather Has Two Mommies”

Walmart Sells Homosexual Kiddie Book

Walmart Now Markets Homosexuality to Kids: Walmart’s online store sells the new edition of “Heather Has Two Mommies,” a “children’s” picture book that promotes the normalcy of lesbian parenting. Above is a screen shot of Walmart.com. The retail giant now scores a “100 percent” on Human Rights Campaign’s rigged “Corporate Equality Index”–which punishes corporations for giving to pro-family organizations, yet rewards them for funding LGBTQ activist groups. To receive a “100-percent” score, corporations must be committed to funding grotesque, body-disfiguring transsexual “sex-reassignment surgeries” as part of their company’s “health” insurance plan for employees. Take Action: contact Walmart HERE or call 800-925-6278). Click to enlarge.

_____________________________________

“Interestingly, unlike many other corporations adopting pro-homosexual policies, Walmart plays both sides of the social-issues “culture war.” It does this by cultivating good relations with both homosexual activists like [Human Rights Campaign] and Christian conservative organizations like American Family Association (AFA).”

Folks, below is a piece I wrote earlier this month for LifeSiteNews, an excellent pro-family and pro-life website (subscribe to their e-list HERE). Walmart’s capitulation to the demands of the leftist, anti-Christian–and very pro-Democrat–Human Wrongs Rights Campaign (HRC) is the latest sign of how strategically important major corporations have become in driving the “gay-transgender” revolution.

If Walmart can go “all gay,” any corporation can, and sadly the Bentonville, Arkansas-based retail giant’s moral capitulation shows how complete and entrenched America’s godless homosexual revolution has become. Nevertheless, liberal (pro-) LGBTQ “snowflakes” in post-Trump distress everywhere are acting as if the USA is on the verge of becoming like Saudi Arabia–despite Trump being the most PRO-homosexual Republican presidential nominee ever!

Walmart’s new, immoral “values”: Walmart fielded a contingent in New York City’s 2015 homosexual-transgender-sadomasochism (“gay”) Pride parade, despite its sexually perverse nature. See this AFTAH photo-story and other photos below.

As it has in recent years, Walmart again sponsored New York City’s homosexual-transgender-sadomasochism (LGBTQueer) “pride” parade in 2016 (see page 35 of the “NYC Pride Guide”; also, see AFTAH’s photo-story exposé on the 2015 NYC “pride” parade sponsored by Walmart). And Walmart was among the corporate sponsors at a far-left-biased “International LGBT Leaders” conference (attended by this writer) in Washington, D.C., earlier this month, put on by the Gay and Lesbian Victory Institute.

Despite its pro-disordered-sex-and-gender “philanthropy,” Walmart received a “Nice” (not “Naughty”) rating from our friends at American Family Association for celebrating Christmas, and was praised as a “pro-religious liberty” company by AFA in 2015. That confused some AFA followers who noted Walmart’s newfound support of homosexual “marriage” post-Obergefell. Moreover, Walmart reportedly fought against a religious-freedom-protection bill in its home state of Arkansas (and in other states).

This scantily-dressed perv marched at the 2015 New York City homosexual-transgender-sadomasochism "gay" Pride parade, at which many young children were in attendance.

Walmart’s values? This nearly naked pervert marched in the 2015 New York City homosexual-transgender-sadomasochism (“gay”) Pride parade, at which many young children were in attendance. Click to enlarge photos.

Ironically, under HRC’s horribly skewed Corporate Equality Index (CEI), if Walmart were to give a direct grant to AFA (or Americans For Truth), it would LOSE 25 points and fall off the CEI’s “100-percent” list (see story below). Having the leftist HRC judge corporations on homosexual and “gender” issues is about as fair as having the far-left, pro-LGBTQ Southern Poverty Law Center serve as an arbiter of “hate.” Utterly absurd, and yet the corrupt media honor both rankings and report them as objective “news.”

I’ll say this: you have to hand it to Walmart’s executives: cynically playing both sides of the LGBTQ-vs.-the-natural-family “culture war” and seemingly getting away with it. Or will they? I suppose that’s up to pro-family Americans, who correctly understand that the homosexual/transgender social-legal revolution is incompatible with the First Amendment and freedom of conscience. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; @Peter LaBarbera

Why Not Talk About Sin in the Christmas Season?

December 30th, 2016

Jesus loves sinners, but He also hates sin. So should Christians, says AFTAH founder

No "Diversity" for Ex-Sin-Movement Advocates:

No “Diversity” for Ex-Sin-Movement Advocates: Charlene Cothran spent 29 years in the lesbian lifestyle and as a “gay” activist before repenting and giving her heart and life to Jesus Christ. But don’t look for her heartwarming story in the archives of the Oprah show–or on any other “mainstream” media network. Liberal “diversity” is a sham because the media and Hollywood, like the Left, are wholly committed to the LGBTQ agenda. See Charlene’s new pastoral ministry HERE, and AFTAH’s original article about her banquet presentation HERE.

The following is a Christmas essay I wrote for LifeSiteNews. A belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all! — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH

Bigot. Prude. Hater. Judger. Busy-body. Holier than thou. Fundamentalist. Hypocrite. Intolerant. Rigid. Bible thumper. “Christo-fascist.” “American Taliban.” Homophobe. Transphobe. Repressed homosexual. I’ve been called them all, like so many who dare to challenge the present sin-tolerant zeitgeist and purveyors of politically correct myths and lies.

Truth is, even with all our flaws, we are none of those. For the most part, Truth-tellers on sexual issues are merely trying to defend God’s honor and His revelation (the Bible) in a world that has left Jesus and Truth behind.

We know that although people can choose to embrace sinful lifestyles, they do not get to change the biblical sin standard of right and wrong. That is way above our pay grade as mere fallen creations of a holy God.

Jesus, Sin and Christmas

December 24, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — Like most people, I love the sentimental, cultural side of Christmas — the colored miniature lights (I still don’t know how to fix it when half the string goes bad); the Christmas tree (must be real); the Santa-themed movies like “Elf” (a family favorite). All that.

But the true glory and joy of the Christmas season is that it celebrates the coming of “the way, the truth and the life” — the One who is our eternal Savior and Judge of mankind; who defeated sin, Satan and death; and who reigns with His Father in Heaven forever and ever. The resurrected Messiah, Christ Jesus.

A lot more compelling than Santa Claus.

‘Gay Rights’ Laws Undermine Freedom, Professors’ Statement Says

December 20th, 2016

The following is a declaration signed by 75 religious and pro-family leaders,and academic VIPs, on the tyranny that flows from “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” laws. It is published by the Colson Center for Christian Worldview. To see the list of signers, and add your name in aupport of the declaration, go HERE:

Preserve Freedom, Reject Coercion

As Americans, we cherish the freedom to peacefully express and live by our religious, philosophical, and political beliefs—not merely to hold them privately. We write on behalf of millions of Americans who are concerned about laws that undermine the public good and diminish this freedom for individuals and organizations alike.

We affirm that every individual is created in the image of God and as such should be treated with love, compassion, and respect. We also affirm that people are created male and female, that this complementarity is the basis for the family centered on the marital union of a man and a woman, and that the family is the wellspring of human flourishing. We believe that it is imperative that our nation preserve the freedoms to speak, teach, and live out these truths in public life without fear of lawsuits or government censorship.

In recent years, there have been efforts to add sexual orientation and gender identity as protected classifications in the law—either legislatively or through executive action. These unnecessary proposals, often referred to as SOGI policies, threaten basic freedoms of religion, conscience, speech, and association; violate privacy rights; and expose citizens to significant legal and financial liability for practicing their beliefs in the public square. In recent years, we have seen in particular how these laws are used by the government in an attempt to compel citizens to sacrifice their deepest convictions on marriage and what it means to be male and female—people who serve everyone, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, but who cannot promote messages, engage in expression, or participate in events that contradict their beliefs or their organization’s guiding values.

Creative professionals, wedding chapels, non-profit organizations, ministries serving the needy, adoption agencies, businesses, schools, religious colleges, and even churches have faced threats and legal action under such laws for declining to participate in a same-sex wedding ceremony; for maintaining policies consistent with their guiding principles; and for seeking to protect privacy by ensuring persons of the opposite sex do not share showers, locker rooms, restrooms, and other intimate facilities. Under SOGI laws, people of good will can face personal and professional ruin, fines, and even jail time, and organizations face the loss of accreditation, licensing, grants, contracts, and tax-exemption.

SOGI laws empower the government to use the force of law to silence or punish Americans who seek to exercise their God-given liberty to peacefully live and work consistent with their convictions. They also create special preference in law for categories based on morally significant choices that profoundly affect human relations and treat reasonable religious and philosophical beliefs as discriminatory. We therefore believe that proposed SOGI laws, including those narrowly crafted, threaten fundamental freedoms, and any ostensible protections for religious liberty appended to such laws are inherently inadequate and unstable.

SOGI laws in all these forms, at the federal, state, and local levels, should be rejected. We join together in signing this letter because of the serious threat that SOGI laws pose to fundamental freedoms guaranteed to every person.

America has stood as a beacon of liberty to the world because our Constitution protects people’s freedom to peacefully—and publicly—work and live according to their convictions. We represent diverse efforts to contribute to the flourishing of our neighbors, communities, nation, and world. We remain committed to preserving in law and stewarding in action the foundational freedoms that make possible service of the common good, social harmony, and the flourishing of all.

Micah Clark on Pearl Harbor, FDR and the Leftward Drift of the Democratic Party

December 7th, 2016

pearl_harbor_painting

Micah Clark, president of American Family Association of Indiana, writes on this 75th anniversary of the Japanese sneak bombing attack that drew America into World War II that killed 2,403 Americans and wounded 1,143. It was FDR who famously called December 7th “a Day that will live in infamy” in his speech asking Congress for a Declaration of War against Japan. Clark writes:

“Re: As we remember Pearl Harbor Day (Dec. 7th)… FDR said:

“The world is too small to provide adequate living room for both Hitler and God. In proof of that, the Nazis have now announced their plan for enforcing their new German, pagan religion all over the world — a plan by which the Holy Bible and the Cross of Mercy would be displaced by Mein Kampf and the swastika and the naked sword.” President Franklin Roosevelt’s State of the Union Address, Jan 6, 1942

“…Not too bad for a liberal Democrat…Note in contrast how secular and far to the Left the Democrats are today. If a Republican said this today–even after a terrorist attack–he’d be blistered by every newspaper and TV talking head in America for mixing church and state.”

Tony Perkins on Kellogg’s Dumping Breitbart – and the Left’s Latest Target: Chip and Joanna Gaines

November 30th, 2016

people_mag_chip_joanna_gaines_resizedThe following is reprinted from Family Research Council’s daily Washington Update newsletter, by president Tony Perkins. Remember when pro-homosexual-“marriage” advocates told us that legalization would have no effect whatsoever on the Church? Regarding Kellogg’s and Breitbart.com, it’s astonishing to me that the cereal company is so tone-deaf that it is disassociating from a website that is hugely popular with the American people and which helped elect our next president. Apparently the Gay Thought Police (GTP) and other liberal scolds are not deterred by a repudiation of leftist Political Correctness at the ballot box. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH

Kellogg’s Signals Bran New Day of Bias

November 30, 2016

By Tony Perkins, with Family Research Council staff

HGTV stars Chip and Joanna Gaines were just on the cover of People magazine — and now, they’re the face of something else: a controversy over the fact that their pastor preaches the Bible. For the last few years, the Texas couple has charmed their way into people’s hearts — not just with their talent for renovation, but with their sweet and genuine relationship. Their show “Fixer Upper” has exploded in popularity, and the parents of four have never shied away from their faith — which they’ve talked about at length in their books and interviews.

Today, that faith is under fire by a handful of far-Left extremists who’ve latched onto a sermon the Gaines’ pastor, Jimmy Seibert, preached about marriage and sexuality. “If someone were to say, ‘Marriage is defined in a different way,’ let me just say: They are wrong,” Seibert said. “God defined marriage, not you and I. God defined masculine and feminine, male and female, not you and I.”

Now, I’m not sure why it’s news that a Christian church believes what the Bible teaches about sexuality, but apparently, this is a shock to the liberal media establishment. When reporters contacted the church, the communications director pointed them to Antioch’s webpage on “beliefs,” where it says: “Marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime.” That was their belief when the church was founded 17 years ago — and it’s their belief today. And, as recent polling points out, Chip and Joanne’s church is hardly in the minority! Fifty-three percent of all Americans (not necessarily Christian) told Wilson Allen Perkins polling this month that despite what the Supreme Court ruled, they still define marriage as the union of a man and woman.

Obviously, the Left is trying to do to Chip and Joanna what they unsuccessfully did to the Robertsons of “Duck Dynasty:” take down a hugely successful program in a show of political force. That’s unlikely to happen to a couple like the Gaines, who have no interest in renovating their views to suit a narrow ideology. Hopefully, HGTV has learned since its ousting of the Benham Brothers that religious discrimination doesn’t play well with viewers.

VIDEO: Zales Jewelers Commercial Is Slick Propaganda to Normalize Homosexual ‘Marriage’

November 29th, 2016

Calls pour into Zales as corporate America’s moral free fall continues

zales_lesbian-so-called_wedding_ad

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

AFTAH to Trump: ‘Gay Marriage’ NOT ‘Settled’ Law – Urges President-elect to Honor His Pledge to GOP Voters to Defend Traditional Marriage – Work to Reverse SCOTUS Obergefell Ruling

November 15th, 2016

LaBarbera: “It would be a YUUGE mistake for Trump to break his pledge to pro-marriage Republican voters who put him in the White House”

Donald Trump has a long history of pro-homosexual advocacy.

LGBTrump? Donald Trump has a long history of pro-homosexual advocacy. He now says–as he did in 2015–that the homosexual “marriage” is “settled” due to the Supreme Court Obergefell ruling –which was eviscerated in a dissent by Trump’s ideal SCOTUS Justice, the late Antonin Scalia. Above is Trump’s 2000 interview with the “gay” magazine The Advocate, in which he suggested adding homosexuality to the federal Civil Rights Act. Read about it HERE. Click on graphic to enlarge.

AFTAH Press Release, November 15, 2016; americansfortruth@gmail.com

CONTACT: Peter LaBarbera or Brad Wallace: 312-324-3787

CHICAGO – AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera called on President-elect Donald Trump to revise his estimation that the Supreme Court has “settled” the issue of homosexual “marriage”–and instead honor his pledge to America’s voters to defend natural marriage against the “shocking” 2015 Obergefell ruling.

[Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH.org) is dedicated to exposing and opposing the LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) agenda. Sign up for AFTAH updates.]

In an interview with CBS “60 Minutes” Sunday, Trump asserted that the Supreme Court’s 2015 Obergefell v. Hodges ruling imposing homosexual “marriage” on all 50 states was “settled” law, and that “gay marriage’ as a political issue is “done … And I’m fine with that.”

That directly contradicts what then-candidate Trump told GOP primary voters in South Carolina last February: that he opposed the “shocking” Obergefell decision and that evangelical voters can trust him to protect real, man-woman marriage. Trump said he favors letting the states decide marriage laws for themselves.

Just prior to the Iowa caucuses, where he was appealing to evangelical voters, Trump said he would like to see Obergefell overturned: “If I’m elected I would be very strong in putting certain judges on the bench that maybe could change things, but they have a long way to go.”

The late Antonin Scalia—whom Trump holds up as the type of Supreme Court Justice he would appoint–ripped into Obergefell in a powerful dissent—saying it was a “naked judicial claim to legislative–indeed, super-legislative–power; a claim fundamentally at odds with our system of government.

“[T]o allow the policy question of same-sex marriage to be considered and resolved by a select, patrician, highly unrepresentative panel of nine is to violate a principle even more fundamental than no taxation without representation: no social transformation without representation,” Scalia wrote.

AFTAH’s LaBarbera described what is at stake with Trump and marriage: “Many millions of evangelical, Catholic and moral-minded voters trusted Mr. Trump with their votes because they did not see him as just another slippery politician. Now it is up to President-elect Trump to show that he is worthy of that trust by clarifying his defeatist statement on Obergefell.

“America cannot become great again by defying God, and homosexuality-based ‘marriage’ is about as godless as it gets,” LaBarbera said. “Trump needs to do all he can to reverse the Supreme Court’s unconstitutional Obergefell ruling—just as he pledges to overturn Roe v. Wade and abortion-on-demand.

Flashback: Pro-LGBT Hillary Clinton Defended Natural Marriage as ‘Sacred Bond’ of Man and Woman – LifeSiteNews

November 8th, 2016

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.

VIDEO: Linda Harvey Keynote Speech at AFTAH Banquet 2016

November 1st, 2016

Americans For Truth banquet attendees were treated to a sobering and fact-filled presentation by Linda Harvey of Mission America on the homosexual-transgender threat to youth–at Grace Gospel Fellowship church in Bensenville, Illinois Friday evening. It was my honor to present Linda with the 2016 “American Truth Teller” award. She joins these other heroes for Truth receiving the annual AFTAH award:  Dr. Judith Reisman, the late Ken (“Hutch”) Hutcherson, author Robert Reilly, Sandy Rios, Dr. Michael Brown and Dr. Scott Lively.

Linda’s speech was loaded with compelling facts that undermine “gay” and “trans” myths–such as the non-scientific claim that people are “born gay.” We also heard from Jeannette Ward, a Board Member in the U-46 School District northwest of Chicago who has bravely stood up to the modernist notion that boys who think they are girls should be allowed to us the female restrooms in schools. We will have more on Linda’s talk and this exciting evening. Thanks to all who came and supported Americans For Truth! — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH

Virginia Transgender Bathroom Case Involving Student Gavin Grimm Goes to SCOTUS – Liberty Counsel

October 31st, 2016

Bathroom Justice or Bathroom Confusion? Gavin Grimm is a biological girl who “identifies” as a boy and sued to use a high school boys restroom.

The following is a Liberty Counsel press release:

Transgender Bathroom Case Goes to SCOTUS

Oct. 31, 1996

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Supreme Court announced Friday they will hear the appeal from the Gloucester County School Board in Virginia on the so-called transgender bathroom decision in G.G. v. Gloucester County School Board. This is the first time that the Court will be addressing the question of whether laws protecting against sex discrimination in education are applicable to “gender identity.”

The student bringing the lawsuit, Gavin Grimm, a 17-year-old high school senior, is a biological girl who now says she subjectively “identifies” as a “boy.”  When Grimm began using the boys’ restroom, some parents complained. Then the school board adopted a policy requiring students to use either the restroom that corresponds with their biological gender or a private, single-stall restroom.

The justices said they will hear the appeal sometime next year. The High Court’s order means that Grimm will not be able to use the boys’ bathroom in the meantime.

“It is ridiculous that the Supreme Court has to address whether a confused girl who wants to use the boys’ restroom should be treated as a boy,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. “The school district’s responsibility is to protect the safety of students from harmful situations. The federal law does not allow people to change their gender by fantasizing they are something other than reality. How the Supreme Court should rule is simple and obvious. The federal law does not allow persons to subjectively think, and therefore be treated, as the opposite of their biological sex. I have very little confidence in the Supreme Court to follow the plain rule of law. Who knows what a majority of the current justices will do because they often put their own personal ideology over the law,” said Staver.

The sad reality is this: men make bad women:

 

Perhaps as a homosexual man Peter Thiel does not understand this, but most women do not want men with penises wearing dresses (like this fellow at the recent "International Mr. Leather" perversion-fest in Chicago) to occupy a restroom with them.

A Denial of Reality: Perhaps as a homosexual man Peter Thiel does not understand this, but most women do not want men with penises wearing dresses (like this fellow at the recent “International Mr. Leather” perversion-fest in Chicago) to occupy a restroom with them.

Judge Rules Iowa Churches Are Not Subject to Government Control as Places of ‘Public Accomodation’ – CBN News

Judge Rules Iowa Churches Are Not Subject to Government Control

By Heather Sells, 10-26-16

A federal judge in Iowa has ruled that churches are not “public accommodations” and therefore not subject to government control.

The ruling could prove pivotal as the country considers whether or not houses of worship are subject to public accommodation anti-discrimination laws.

In her ruling, U.S. District Court Judge Stephanie Rose allowed a lawsuit filed by the Fort Des Moines Church of Christ to continue. The church filed suit in objection to the Iowa Civil Rights Commission applying a state civil rights law to churches.

In light of the new ruling, the church is dismissing its lawsuit.

“The court cut off this unconstitutional power grab by clarifying that the law does not apply to churches,” ADF [Alliance Defending Freedom] attorney Steve O’Ban said.

Judge Rose noted in her ruling that “state and federal courts have held that churches and the programs they host are not places of public accommodation.”

However, LGBT activists often claim churches and other houses of worship are places of public accommodation in order to force them to follow government anti-discrimination laws…. [Story continues at CBN News]

 

MUST READ New Book: ‘Health Hazards of Homosexuality: What the Medical and Psychological Research Reveals’

October 26th, 2016
health_hazards_book-2

Not “Equal,” Not Even Close: LGBTQ activists are loathe to discuss and debate the manifold disproportionate health risks associated with their unnatural lifestyles. Order this new book by our friends at MassResistance through Amazon HERE.

Folks, homosexual health risks are the elephant in the “gay” living room that is often denied by anti-science “gay” activists, and rarely gets the attention it deserves from squeamish conservatives and Christians. I know and trust the author of this MassResistance book, and that person has excellent research skills. The book has 1,800 endnotes–including some citing articles by AFTAH and this writer–so it is loaded with “inconvenient truths” and uncomfortable realities about LGBTQ behaviors and lifestyles that Big Gay Inc and their media lackeys do not want you to know.

I just bought my copy of “The Health Hazards of Homosexuality off Amazon (available only in Kindle e-book format). Go HERE to buy yours today. Stay tuned for much more on this terrific resource. –Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; @PeterLaBarbera

________________________

Below is the author’s description of the book on Amazon:

“Health Hazards of Homosexuality” brings together in one resource up-to-date information on the serious physical and mental health issues experienced by gays, lesbians, and bisexuals. This e-book includes 1,800 endnotes with live links to sources including the CDC, medical and mental health professional associations, medical research, GLB advocacy groups and websites, and the mainstream media. Numerous documentary color photos enliven the text.

The book looks at reasons for the higher levels of pathology (in both physical and mental health) experienced by these sexual minority groups, including life experiences, lifestyle choices, and risky sexual practices.

The book begins with discussion of the social and institutional context, summarizes estimates of the GLB population, and dismantles the “born that way” myth. Several chapters look at the higher incidence of mental health disorders exhibited by many in the GLB community, including depression, anxiety, suicidality, substance use, partner abuse, and BDSM practices. [BDSM is a sadomasochism acronym that stands for–according to its aficionados–“Bondage & Discipline, Dominance & Submission, Sadism & Masochism.” No wonder they’re now calling it “Kink” for media and cultural mainstreaming purposes.–AFTAH]

The general public has not been told the whole truth about sexually transmitted diseases (including HIV/AIDS) and other illness following from the behaviors associated with GLB sexual orientations. Gays and bisexual men, in particular, are most vulnerable and are driving recent increases in STD incidence. Our nation’s youth, male and female, are suffering from the fallout and are experiencing startling increases in STDs.

VIDEO: Will Fox News with Openly ‘Gay’ Shep Smith Become Even More Pro-Homosexual? Kincaid Interviews LaBarbera

October 24th, 2016
shep_out_mag_power_list_2015

FOX anchor Shep Smith never squabbled with being “outed” by OUT, a leading homosexual magazine. Above is an entry for Smith in the magazine’s “Power 50” list of influential homosexuals. Click to enlarge.

In the video below, I am interviewed by my friend Cliff Kincaid, president of America’s Survival, about the not-unexpected revelation that Fox News daytime anchor Shepard (“Shep”) Smith is homosexual. We discuss Fox’s steady abandonment of “fair & balanced” coverage of the LGBTQ agenda, and the GOP’s abandonment of serious opposition to it. [Read my in-depth 2014 report for A.S. on Fox News’ growing pro-homosexual bias HERE.]

We also discuss how homosexual-agenda-related issues and even religious liberty (freedom of conscience vs. “gay rights”) have barely been raised in this presidential election, thanks in part to Republicans not bringing it up. Kincaid says conservatives need more networks to compete with Fox News. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; @PeterLaBarbera 

Here is Cliff’s YouTube description of the program, released today:

Cliff Kincaid and Peter LaBarbera discuss the decline of Fox News, in the context of Shepard Smith coming “out” of the closet, and the unwillingness of the channel to promote or even mention the importance of traditional values.

Judicial Commission Tosses Out ‘Politically Motivated’ SPLC Complaint Against Alabama Justice Tom Parker

October 22nd, 2016

Mat Staver: “Shame on the SPLC”…

The following is excerpted from an article in WND.com published today:

Politically-Motivated Claims Against Alabama Justice Tossed

By Bob Unruh, WND.com, 10-22-16

A complaint that had been filed against Alabama Supreme Court Justice Tom Parker by the domestic terror-linked Southern Poverty Law Center has been dismissed by the state’s Judicial Inquiry Commission.

“Shame on the SPLC for filing this politically motivated complaint against Justice Parker,” said Mat Staver, chairman of Liberty Counsel, which represents Parker.

Parker was accused, after he was interviewed on American Family Radio about the U.S. Supreme Court’s opinion on marriage, of violating the Canon 3(A)(6) of the state canons of judicial ethics.

The problem, Staver explained, is that the rule purports to prevent any judge in the state from making “any public comment about a pending or impending proceeding in any court” – even if the judge is not involved in the case and if the judge’s comments “do not have a reasonable likelihood of affecting the outcome or impairing the fairness of that proceeding.”

Liberty Counsel noted such a rule has been described by the American Bar Association as violating the First Amendment.
