MassResistance Writer Asks In Wake of CPAC Ban – Is the Conservative Movement Dead?

February 22nd, 2018

Folks, this essay by my friend and author Amy Contrada lays out some of the troubled recent history of CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) and homosexuality. Last week, CPAC’s executive director, Dan Schneider, suddenly disinvited our friends at MassResistance as an Exhibitor sponsor at the conservative conference (which began yesterday) after first allowing MR to exhibit. You see, as Amy documents, CPAC–the group that welcomed self-styled “Dangerous Faggot” Milo Yiannopoulos as a speaker last year, is concerned that MassResistance president Brian Camenker lacks “common decency”! (This is not a joke.) And needless to say, the same CPAC again this year welcomed the homosexual-transgender activists at Log Cabin Republicans as Exhibitors. [Watch the short AFTAH video on Log Cabin-Chicago’s perverted 2009 “gay pride” float HERE.]

When MR was booted, AFTAH applied for an Exhibitor’s table, but we never heard back from CPAC and our $2,000 payment was not processed. Then I learned that CPAC denied journalist’s credentials to Cliff Kincaid, a good friend of AFTAH and a rare conservative leader who still fights the radical LGBTQueer agenda. It seems that the CPAC model for building a “conservative” movement is to alienate real conservatives, especially socialcons, while pandering to social “progressives” at the expense of biblical truth and fidelity to the GOP Platform. What folly. More coming on this CPAC-sellout story.  — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter:” @PeterLaBarbera

Pro Family Group Asks: Is the Conservative Movement Dead?

By Amy Contrada

Our conservative pro-family group MassResistance was approved in January as an exhibitor at CPAC, the Conservative Political Action Conference. We were abruptly disinvited last week. We are trying to understand the reason.

CPAC’s parent organization, the American Conservative Union, claims it “defines conservatism.” They hold a huge annual conference in DC, beginning February 21 this year.

Why would a group or speaker be banned? CPAC Executive Director Dan Schneider said he rescinded our participation due to our uncivil discourse. He was “uncomfortable” with our tone. CPAC has been telling our supporters who call that we “lack common decency.” Several of our supporters were even told that our group encourages violence against gays! That is libelous. We’ve never done anything of the sort.

How has CPAC responded to the actual uncivil discourse of its invitees in the past? Let’s look at two examples: the Log Cabin Republicans and Milo Yiannopoulos. We will then describe our own shocking treatment at the hands of the “conservative establishment.”

Log Cabin Republicans

The LGBT activist Log Cabin Republicans (LCR) have a table at CPAC 2018 for the third year in a row. Here’s how they reacted to the 2016 Republican Party Platform in full-page ad in USA Today:

LOSERS! MORONS! SAD! No, these aren’t tweets from Donald Trump. This is what common-sense conservatives are saying about the most anti-LGBT platform the Republican Party has ever had. GOP Platform Committee: Out of touch, out of line, and out of step with 61% of young Republicans who favor same-sex marriage.

Is an ad portraying fellow Republicans as “losers” and “morons” civil discourse? LCR admitted their ad was “provocative.” Their president explained he was “mad as hell” as he ranted against the platform’s “nonsense” on same-sex marriage, transgender bathroom access, and approval of counseling for those questioning their sexual orientation.

At a gay pride event in Chicago [see AFTAH video], the LCR float included signs reading:

A strong military shoots big loads
BIG DICKS – small government
CUT TAXES – UNCUT 8 inches

Yet the American Conservative Union (ACU) and CPAC have had no problem with LCR’s insulting and degrading language. This is despite LCR’s violation of one of the four mandatory criteria for being a CPAC sponsor, namely that “The applicant organization must not exist primarily for a liberal purpose.” And what is LCR’s main purpose? Promoting the radical homosexual and transgender agenda – clearly a liberal purpose, and their core identity.

Milo Yiannopoulos aka ‘Dangerous Faggot’

In 2017, vulgar “gay” provocateur libertine Milo Yiannopoulos (who calls himself the “Dangerous Faggot”) was invited to be the keynote speaker at CPAC. Milo’s “tone” was no secret. ACU’s invitation went out to him despite his performance a year before in Cleveland during the 2016 Republican Convention where he flamed out in his rank language.

VIDEO: Log Cabin Republicans’ Float in ‘Gay Pride’ Parade Mocked Military with Crude Gay Sexual Humor – As Children Watched

February 18th, 2018

WARNING: Crude Language

Take Action: Contact CPAC and its parent organization, American Conservative Union (ACU) at 202-347-9388 and ask them to allow the pro-family groups Mass Resistance and AFTAH to exhibit at next week’s CPAC 2018 conference. ACU’s online contact form is HERE.

Gay Republicans Mock the Military, Corrupt Kids: Sign held by a man atop the Chicago Log Cabin Republicans’ float in the Chicago homosexual “pride” parade in 2009. Photo from AFTAH video; see video below.

Folks, it now appears the leadership of CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) is standing by its foolish and shameful decision to deny an Exhibitor’s table at CPAC 2018 to MassResistance–a leading grassroots anti-LGBTQ-agenda group–after first approving the organization, and after approving the “gay” activist group Log Cabin Republicans to exhibit at CPAC.

AFTAH submitted its request to exhibit at CPAC early last week but has not heard back from the organization. According to the pro-family news site LifeSiteNews, CPAC Executive Director Dan Schneider “indicated that CPAC had deemed some of the language used by MassResistance in the past as ‘insulting and disrespectful’ when speaking about the LGBT community. ‘Groups which would use similar language about other minority groups would be disallowed as well,'” he said.

Hmmm. Insulting and disrespectful language? How about openly mocking the United States military with twisted, crude, sodomy-obsessed homosexual humor–on a float in a parade at which many young children attended? Who would do such a thing? Why, the Chicago branch of the Log Cabin Republicans, of course. Below is the AFTAH video. After the video and the page jump is AFTAH’s YouTube description of it. Also, for two good AFTAH pieces on how “gay pride” parades corrupt children, see this photo-story on the 2015 New York City “pride” and this one on the 2012 Philly “pride” parade.

PS. This is just one example of LCR’s anti-conservatism. Check out their website for their radical positions, which include bashing the GOP Platform and celebrating homosexual “marriage.” — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

McConkey: Winter Olympics Promotes Homosexuality as ‘Principle 6’ Is Pushed

February 17th, 2018

Exploiting Olympic Fame to Promote Perversion: This tweet by openly homosexual American Olympic athlete Gus Kenworthy with fellow “gay” activist Adam Rippon telegraphs their proud “queerness” to the world. Rippon and Kenworthy have drawn headlines by criticizing Vice President Mike Pence, who heads up the U.S. delegation to South Korea’s Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang. 

For years Steve McConkey of 4 WINDS Christian Athletics has been a lonely, brave and principled voice for Christians against the promotion of homosexuality and sexual sin in sports. Steve is spot on here regarding the Olympics’ capitulation to the LGBTQ agenda. There is a lot about the homosexuality and “transgender” debates that doesn’t get the critical attention it deserves because we are preoccupied with legal and public policy issues. One such thing is the cultural corruption and the unspoken tyrannies that come with it when the evil of sodomy is aggressively promoted as a good (Isaiah 5:20), and human wrongs are elevated to protected “rights.”

Publicly proud homosexuals like Olympians Gus Kenworthy and Adam Rippon are driven by a need to justify their errant sexual choices. Tragically, Western culture now celebrates their shared sin, shamelessly flaunted and hyped by the media in these South Korean Winter Olympics, while punishing moral voices who disagree. Many “straight” athletes are now intimidated from saying anything critical about the behavior of “gay” teammates or “out” sport celebrities due to a fear of being branded a “hater,” and having their career destroyed.

It is not enough to demand the mere “right” to dissent from the politically correct chorus championing homosexuality; we must find ways to be as aggressive in championing godly, biologically-correct morality as LGBTQ advocates are in defying it. Here is McConkey’s release on the International Olympic Committee’s troubling “gay” embrace. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

Winter Olympics Promotes Homosexuality as Principle 6 is Pushed

Contact: 4 Winds Christian Athletics, 608-469-7956

MADISON, Wis., Feb. 15, 2018 /Standard Newswire/ — Olympic skater Adam Rippon and skier Gus Kenworthy are promoting homosexuality as normal behavior. They are the first openly gay Winter Olympians from the United States.

They have been verbally attacking Vice President Mike Pence. Kenworthy recently appeared on the Ellen Degeneres show criticizing Pence. Hillary Clinton praised the gay athletes and said she will be focusing on them as she watches the Games.

“Adam Rippon and Gus Kenworthy will be used by the Olympic Committee and the press to further the sin of homosexuality,” states 4 Winds Christian Athletics President Steve McConkey. “The Olympic Committee has promoted transgenders, intersex athletes without proper testing, and same sex marriage.

“Olympic athletes are encouraged to support the LGBT community according to Principle 6. If Christian athletes say homosexuality is a sin, they could face consequences. The press tried to destroy a prominent gold medalist for saying homosexuality was wrong. There were talks that the person could lose their Olympic Ambassadorship.”

FRC: Court Tells Ohio Parents: Accept Your Child’s ‘Gender Identity’ or Lose Custody

February 16th, 2018

Judge Sylvia Hendon.

Folks, more evidence here that newfangled “rights” based on sexual perversion and extreme gender confusion naturally war against real, God-given liberties, parental rights and historic Judeo-Christian religion. Here are some good words from Family Research Council president Tony Perkins on two of the latest LGBTQ-activists assaults on normality and faith.

Obviously, the escalating pro-LGBTQ campaign against the Detroit church is intended to intimidate other churches from pursuing their biblical calling of godly transformation through Jesus Christ. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

Court: Accept Your Child’s New Gender or Lose Custody

By Tony Perkins, Family Research Council “Washington Update”

February 16, 2018

This week, a shocking story hit the national news about an Ohio teenager who was removed from her parents’ home by authorities. Why? Because they didn’t support their daughter’s decision to identify as a boy and declined to authorize hormone therapy to facilitate her gender “transition.” Today, the story broke that Juvenile Court Judge Sylvia Hendon has permanently removed the child from her parents’ custody (despite the fact that the child is already 17 and would be able to make medical decisions for herself in less than a year).

What’s especially alarming is that a lawyer representing the child — as well as Donald Clancy of the Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office — cited the parents’ religious beliefs as an argument for robbing them of their rights! The mom and dad are being criticized for seeking out a Christian therapist for their daughter and for daring to send her to Catholic school. Even so, the parents were clear that their stance on the gender transition wasn’t motivated on faith alone. After all, they pointed out, they’d had lengthy consultations with medical professions and did hours of research on their own. Only then did they come to the conclusion that “this is not in their child’s best interest.” (The American College of Pediatricians — not to be confused with the more “politically correct” American Academy of Pediatrics — agrees.)

For years, LGBT activists have scoffed at warnings from FRC and others that the radical LGBT movement poses a threat to personal and religious freedom. In the past, the Left directed most of its attacks on religious expression in the public square, doing everything it could to restrict faith to the four walls of your house or church. Now, even that tolerance is tumbling down.

I wrote yesterday about the shocking attack by two Michigan state legislators against a church in metropolitan Detroit that offered an “Unashamed Identity Workshop” for teen girls struggling with their sexual orientation or gender identity. It’s becoming ever clearer that if we don’t fight to defend our liberties everywhere, they will not be safe from attack anywhere — not even in your church or your home.

CPAC Bans Pro-Family Group MassResistance as Exhibitor – LaBarbera Urges Decision Be Reversed

February 13th, 2018

Folks, last week I was stunned to learn that CPAC, the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, had reversed itself and banned the pro-family organization MassResistance from having an Exhibition Table. This is the same CPAC which now is allowing homosexual activist Republicans–the Log Cabin Republicans, to be Exhibitors. MassResistance is run by my good friend, Brian Camenker, who is a hero for standing up to homosexual and transgender activists for over the last 25 years and never backing down.

The same cannot be said of CPAC. It is simply unconscionable for a “conservative” organization to welcome in homosexual activists while banishing the leading national grassroots organization fighting the LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Queer) lobby. That is why I have called on the American Conservative Union, which runs CPAC, to reverse its decision and allow MassResistance to have a booth.

AFTAH’s predecessor, the newsletter Lambda Report, was launched at CPAC 25 years ago, so this latest politically correct absurdity really hurts personally. As we predicted, out-and-proud homosexuality is now corrupting conservatism and Christianity; it is incompatible with both. After hearing of the action against my friend, I have applied and paid for an Exhibitors Booth at CPAC.  We’ll see what happens. In the meantime, please contact ACU and urge them to reverse this terrible decision.

MassResistance table BANNED from CPAC – after having been accepted. Because of our 2015 comments about the “culture war”

But LGBT group “Log Cabin Republicans” is allowed!

Is the “Conservative Political Action Conference” really conservative?

February 13, 2018, by Mass Resistance

The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), the oldest and largest annual “conservative” conference in America, has abruptly banned MassResistance from having an exhibit at its 2018 session. The conference begins next week, running Feb. 21-24. CPAC had officially approved MassResistance for a table on January 29, after an involved vetting process.

But last week CPAC Executive Director Dan Schneider notified MassResistance that the decision has been reversed because of our Biblical approach to fighting the “culture war” (particularly the transgender agenda in public schools) as described in a 2015 speech by MassResistance president Brian Camenker.

RADIO: LaBarbera, Mefferd Assail Millennial Conservative Guy Benson’s ‘Prager U’ Video Claim to Be ‘Gay Christian’

January 26th, 2018

AFTAH president says Fox News pundit Benson is among most “dangerous” “gay” activists because he’s undermining biblical truth and principled conservatism

Young, Winsome…and Wrong: Fox News contributor and Townhall.com political editor Guy Benson claims to be a “gay Christian”–despite the Bible’s clear prohibition of homosexual acts and a New Testament passage citing former homosexuals who overcame this sin through Christ (1 Corinthians 6:9-11). Listen to interview, in which Benson trivializes his embrace of immorality as a mere “footnote,” below. For an orthodox treatment of the issue by the world’s leading evangelical authority on the Bible and homosexuality, see www.RobGagnon.net.

Folks, here is my Jan. 25, 2018 interview on “Janet Mefferd Today,” in which Christian talker Janet Mefferd and I critique a new “Prager U” video by homosexual conservative and Fox News contributor and self-declared “gay Christian,” Guy Benson. Start listening at 24:30.

Benson, who is the political editor at Townhall.com, identifies himself as a “Gay Christian” in the video, which is part of conservative talk show host Dennis Prager’s educational video series. Janet begins by playing portions of the video and analyzing them with her usual brilliance. We have embedded the full Prager U video at the bottom of this post.

I understand that in these politically correct, apostate times, our position will be attacked, even by many Christians and certainly by many conservatives. But just because Benson is smart and a good communicator does not change the reality that he is undermining Biblical Truth on sex and marriage–as well as principled conservatism–with his self-interested claim to be a proud, open homosexual and a faithful Christian. This is an intellectually reckless claim; the young Benson could use some Biblical counseling from the likes of Stephen Black, who left the “gay” lifestyle and credits Jesus Christ for his transformation.

The truth, of course, is that “gay” activists–whom Benson lauds–have been at war with historic Biblical truth since before Stonewall, by crusading to turn a sinful sexual inclination into an innocuous identity. And it is preposterous for Benson to trivialize his embrace of sexual perversion–as a “Christian conservative”–as a mere “footnote.” We will have much more on Benson and the Prager U/”gay conservative”/”gay Christian” story in future posts. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; @PeterLaBarbera

P.S. As we both say on the show, please pray for Guy Benson: that he will embrace genuine, repentant faith rooted in God’s Word and turn away from the lie of “gay” identity and LGBTQ ideology.  [See the leading site refuting pro-homosexual “Christianity”: RobGagnon.net]. [Note: the time marker for this radio interview is at the bottom left of this Soundcloud graphic, and comes on when you hit the “play” button at top left; interview starts at 24:30]

VIDEO: Stossel Slams Southern Poverty Law Center – SPLC – as ‘Hate Group’ and ‘Money-Grabbing Slander Machine’

January 22nd, 2018

Real Hate: A leader of the Gay Liberation Network in Chicago refused to condemn a leftist brick attack against an AFTAH banquet speaker in 2011.

Here is an excellent video, “Selling Hate,” by libertarian journalist John Stossel and Reason magazine. It exposes the SPLC (Southern Poverty Law Center) for what it is: a “hate group” and ” and “left-wing, money-grabbing slander machine.” The SPLC listed AFTAH (Americans For Truth About Homosexuality) as a “hate” organization (and later a hate website) in 2010 when it first began adding groups and individuals that oppose the homosexual agenda to its “hate” listings (which until then included mostly racist and anti-Semitic fringe groups). See our 2012 protest led by Black pastors against SPLC at their headquarters HERE.

Just as SPLC fails to list Antifa as a “hate group” (see their feeble and technical explanation as to why HERE), they do not list extremist homosexual groups like the Chicago-based Gay Liberation Network (GLN) as “hate groups.” This despite obvious demonstrations of real hatred by such groups: go HERE to read our press release about a GLN leader, Bob Schwartz, who refused to condemn the 2011 leftist brick attack against AFTAH and our banquet speaker, Scott Lively.

Kudos to Stossel for calling out the evil SPLC–something most left-leaning journalists still refuse to do. Please share this short (5:41) video far and wide. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera [More info from video after video and jump]
