Twitter Reinstates LaBarbera’s Account

September 25th, 2021 Dear Readers, I tweeted out the following after Twitter reinstated my account Friday (9/24/21) after suspending it for alleged “hate” three days earlier. Here is a link to my appeal letter, and HERE is the AFTAH story on the original suspension.–Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; @PeterLaBarbera

AFTAH’s LaBarbera Appeals Twitter Suspension

September 22nd, 2021
Twitter’s Version of “Hate”: Above graphic shows tweet that led to Peter LaBarbera’s Twitter suspension. It simply makes the point that Muslims following Sharia Law treat homosexuals harsher than Christians.

____________________________

Update: Twitter reinstated LaBarbera’s account on Friday, Sept. 24.

____________________________

I sent the following letter 9-22-21 to appeal Twitter’s suspension of my account on Sept. 21, 2021. My Twitter page, now listing me with zero followers, can be found at: twitter.com/PeterLaBarbera.–Peter LaBarbera, Americans For Truth

I am appealing my suspension (9-21-21) for alleged “hateful conduct.” On 9-20, I sent out an innocuous and accurate tweet pointing out that it is radical, Sharia-enforcing Muslims (in Islamic states) that are killing homosexuals, not Christians. This was in reply to a sardonic tweet urging me to go to a country with “Sharia Law and stuff,” because I oppose homosexuality as immoral. The sad truth is that although Christians are often falsely accused of “hate” towards homosexuals because of their biblical and moral beliefs, it is fundamentalist Islamic states like Iran where homosexuals have suffered under the most draconian punishments, including death by hanging and stoning.

I refer you to Pages 5 and 56-58 in the U.S. State Department’s 2020 Human Rights report on Iran (https://www.state.gov/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/IRAN-2020-HUMAN-RIGHTS-REPORT.pdf), which documents that the death penalty and other severe punishments have been carried out against homosexuals, and justified by Iran’s foreign minister.

My tweet in no way “promoted violence” or hatred against homosexuals. In fact, I was simply pointing to the irony that while American Christians are often demonized for alleged cruelty towards gays, actual violence in the form of harsh punishments against homosexuals actually occurs in hardline Islamic states.

I appeal this unjust suspension and ask you to restore my account in good standing. I challenge you to view my Twitter feed, where I routinely engage civilly with LGBTQ-identified critics like [LGBTQ writer and activist] Dan Savage (@fakedansavage). Even though they strongly disagree with me on sexual morality, we are able to dialogue back-and-forth, even poking fun at one another. I thought that was the original vision of Jack Dorsey and Twitter. Thank you for considering this appeal.–@PeterLaBarbera

Twitter Suspends LaBarbera For Accurate Tweet Saying that Sharia-enforcing Muslims, not Christians, Are Killing Homosexuals

September 22nd, 2021
 
Dear Readers,
 
I just posted this on Gettr and Gab, two alternatives to Twitter, which suspended my account for an innocuous and accurate tweet. (My Twitter page now shows zero followers.) We’ll see how my appeal goes, but given Twitter’s hard-Left bias against conservatives, I don’t expect to be reinstated.–Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH
 
Yesterday (9-21-21) I was suspended by Twitter for this completely accurate and innocuous tweet. After 12+ years being very active on the platform, my followers were wiped out. I was responding to a lefty named George, who had snidely tweeted that I should join a “Sharia Law” country because I oppose homosexuality. I will appeal although, having been harassed and shadow-banned by Twitter going way back, I don’t expect to be reinstated. My response follows: “Sorry George. Radical (#ShariaLaw -enforcing) Muslims hang homosexuals or throw them off of buildings. Radical Christians pray for them to follow #JesusChrist and leave sinful homosexuality behind, as so many #exgays have.”

Below is the full email suspension notice sent to LaBarbera by Twitter on September 21, 2021:

Finland Restricts ‘Gender Transition’ Procedures for Minors

September 8th, 2021

Now “more reasonable” than USA, says Family Research Council

This is a 2008 photo shot of a young woman who had her healthy breasts removed to appear like a man, marching in a “Transgender Pride” parade in Northhampton, MA. It was shot by Mass Resistance, a leading group opposing LGBTQ activism.

By Jennifer Bauwens, July 26, 2021

Reprinted from Family Research Council site

Reason on the subject of gender transition for minors is increasingly prevailing on the international scene. With Finland’s recent move to cut back on the practice, multiple countries in Europe, including Great Britain and Sweden, now recognize that performing potentially irreversible procedures on children that transform their endocrine systems and remove healthy sexual organs should not be the go-to intervention for treating psychological dissonance over one’s biological sex.

In taking this positive step toward protecting the physical integrity of children suffering from gender dysphoria, Finland last year amended their national health care policy and issued new guidelines to end the wide-spread availability of interventions on those who are under 18 (a translation of the guidelines was just finished earlier this month). After reviewing the research on pediatric transgender medicine, Finnish authorities determined that the scientific evidence did not support medical intervention, and rather, psychotherapy should be the first treatment used with minors.

Folks, I appeared September 1, 2021 on VCY America “Crosstalk” with my friend and host Jim Schneider [click to listen HERE], to discuss various LGBTQ-agenda stories. We talked about: Netflix’s propagandistic “documentary,’ “Pray Away” [see my in-depth LifeSiteNews articles on this manipulative film HERE (Part 1) and HERE (Part 2)]; Joe Biden’s “thorough commitment” to the “trans” and LGBTQ agendas; and the CDC’s (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) ridiculously “woke” speech code (I guess we can’t say “expectant mom” anymore!). The Left is nuts, they dominate the Democrat Party, and they’re dragging America down, so keep on fighting for truth. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

Stories discussed included:

  • Harvard Law Today posted an article about alumni and current students fighting for thelegalization of polyamory.
  • The Centers for Disease Control come out with preferred terms for select population groups.
  • The Netflix propaganda documentary called Pray Away focuses on ex-gays that became prominent Christian leaders and now have fallen back to the sin of their old lifestyle.
  • Peter believes President Joe Biden will go back to his radical base and the largest part of that is the LGBTQ movement.   
  • The Daily Caller reports that the nation’s largest LGBTQ rights advocacy group is investigating HRC President Alphonso David’s role in helping Governor Andrew Cuomo discredit accusers.  
  • Congressman Chris Pappas of New Hampshire has introduced a bill to establish an LGBTQ veterans advisory committee at the Department of Veterans Affairs.
  • A lawsuit being brought against President Biden by medical professionals over his mandate that would require doctors to perform transgender surgeries.
  • DC Comics to kill off the Clark Kent character from Superman. Jonathan Kent will take over, and according to a number of media sources, Jonathan will come out as homosexual.  This is after DC has already announced that Batwoman is a lesbian and Robin the Boy Wonder is bisexual.
  • A teacher allegedly tells students to pledge allegiance to a gay pride flag.

This is just some of the material from the first half of the broadcast.  Hear much more, including what listeners had to say, on this edition of Crosstalk.

LSN Series by LaBarbera Analyzes Netflix’s Pro-LGBTQ Film ‘Pray Away’ — Exposes Treachery of Failed ‘Ex-Ex-Gays’ Leaders

August 31st, 2021

These sellouts went from Christian moral “truth” advocates to LGBTQ activist cheerleaders who deny ex-“gay” change


Team Traitor:
“Ex-Ex-Gay” activist Randy Thomas as he appears on Netflix’s jaundiced, pro-LGBTQ documentary, “Pray Away.” As a VP for the now-defunct “ex-gay” ministry Exodus International, Thomas once defended Judeo-Christian sexual morality and fought efforts to legalize same-sex “marriage.” Now he supports the radical LGBTQ (“queer”) lobby and homosexuality-inclusive “christianity,” and attacks the idea of ex-gay change. See Part One of Peter LaBarbera’s LifeSite piece on Pray Away HERE. See Part Two HERE. Above is a screenshot taken from “Pray Away.”

Memo from AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera:

My new series in the pro-family news site LifeSiteNews analyzes the biased Netflix “documentary” “Pray Away,” featuring several  “ex-ex-gays” who now shill for out-and-proud homosexuality. I expose the sad and treacherous history of these fallen “ex-gay” (and in reality, ex-faithfully Christian) leaders, several of whom I worked alongside in their former roles opposing the homosexual movement:

  • Yvette Cantu Schneider
  • John Paulk 
  • Randy Thomas
  • Alan Chambers
  • Julie Rodgers

All of the above people once played a prominent role in the Christian conservative, pro-family movement opposing the LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) lobby. And ALL have now defected to become supporters of that sexual sin movement. That has earned them “starring” roles in “Pray Away,” which attacks ministries aimed at helping people overcome unwanted homosexual desires.

Video and Transcript: San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus Taunts: ‘We’ll Convert Your Children’

August 2nd, 2021

The following (July 1, 2021) video produced by the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus touched off an avalanche of outrage across America with its sneering, satirical taunt, “We’ll convert your children”–which SFGMC claimed was merely “tongue-in-cheek humor.” After the “Message from the Gay Community” was roundly condemned by various leading conservatives, SFGMC first took down the video, then republished along with a response to critics–while also disabling it so it could not be reposted on other sites. The full lyrics are beneath the video; this is our we’ll have much more to say about this.–Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH  

 

Verbatim transcript of San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus video:

Troy Iwata talking: “As we celebrate pride and the progress we’ve made over these past years, there’s still work to be done. So to those of you out there who are still working against equal rights, we have a message for you [he starts singing]:

You think we’re sinful,

you fight against our rights,

you say we all lead lives you can’t respect.

 

But you’re just frightened,

you think that we’ll corrupt your kids,

if our agenda goes unchecked.

Funny, just this once, you’re correct.

 

[Refrain:]

We’ll convert your children,

happens bit by bit,

quietly and subtly,

and you will barely notice it.

You can keep [them] from disco,

warn about San Francisco,

make ’em wear pleated pants, we don’t care,

 

We’ll convert your children,

we’ll make them tolerant and fair.

This Is the Perfect LGBTQ Meme for America Today

June 9th, 2021

Folks, this one says it all. I found it on Twitter. From “children’s” books to corporate “wokeness,” to the smug, pro-gay/trans/”non-binary” cheerleaders in the media and Hollywood, you just can’t escape ubiquitous LGBTQueer propaganda these days. That’s especially true during June, which pro-immorality “progressives” have deemed “Pride” month as if it were some sacred, extended holiday. Always remember this: homosexuality, like any sin, is nothing to be proud of. (See this excellent EX-“gay” website for a dose of truth.) To see my Twitter feed, go to @Peter LaBarbera. — PL, AFTAH
