VCY America Interviews LaBarbera on Adam Flanders’ Web Bullying, Bert & Ernie as ‘Gay Couple,’ and LGBTQ Agenda

September 25th, 2018

“Gay” Activism Corrupts EVERYTHING: A homosexual Hollywood writer declared that Sesame Street characters Bert and Ernie were a “gay” couple–a claim that was quickly shot down by the show’s creators. AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera said LGBTQ activists’ penchant for infusing all facets of life with homosexuality is driven by their need to rationalize their own sinful, unnatural lifestyle. Graphic taken from Sesame Street website video.

The following is a description provided by Milwaukee-based Christian radio station VCY America of their September 19, 2018 radio interview with AFTAH’s Peter LaBarbera. Click HERE to listen on MP3. Hosting for VCY is my friend Jim Schneider. We appreciate VCY’s consistently capable and vigilant coverage of this agenda over the years. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

Pro-Morality Organization Censored While LGBT Agenda Promoted

For the full story on the antics of homosexual activist, convicted sex offender and web bully Adam Flanders, go HERE.

Peter LaBarbera is the founder and president of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality, a non-partisan, non-profit group dedicated to exposing the homosexual-bisexual-transgender activist agendas.

Peter’s organization has become a victim of censorship and intolerance. The story involves a homosexual activist/convicted sex offender [Adam Flanders] who’s on the sex offender registry list in 2 states. In 3 of Peter’s website stories they had a picture of this man’s mug shot from one of his arrests. He didn’t want that photo to be seen, so Peter noted that this individual sends threatening letters to anyone who publishes things like that, while claiming that his privacy is being violated.

This individual contacted the Internet service provider and communicated that his mug shot is a copyrighted picture. The ISP [FirstLight Fiber] wrote to Peter’s web host and gave them 5 days to take the picture down. The next day, Peter’s entire website was taken down because his web host said this is a specious claim and they refused to take the picture down.

HostGator Shutdown of ‘AFTAH Censored’ Site Continues – Also Closes Down MassResistance Site after Adam Flanders Complaint

September 22nd, 2018

Censored, Indeed: Visitors to AFTAH’s temporary “Censored” site, www.AmericansForTruthCensored.com, will get this “503 Service Temporarily Unavailable” notice. The site was shut down by HostGator following a spurious abuse complaint threat by homosexual activist and convicted sex offender Adam Flanders.

The web hosting company HostGator continues to block the website of AmericansForTruthCensored.com, which was created after the gay-activist-inspired takedown of the main AFTAH site August 24.

The temporary AFTAH “Censored” site was taken offline by HostGator following an “abuse” complaint by Adam Flanders, homosexual activist and convicted sex offender (“Sexual Abuse of a Minor”), whose email activism led to the shutdown of the main Americans For Truth site. Flanders is listed on the sex offender registry list in Maine and California. For more information on Flanders, go HERE.

HostGator Caves Again: The above graphic is what a web click for MassResistance.org yielded last week after HostGator took down the organization’s  website. HostGator was merely capitulating again to a deceitful “abuse” complaint by convicted sex offender Adam Flanders. MR quickly was reinstated through another web host company; go HERE. Flanders has been waging e-war against MassResistance for years.

Meanwhile, last week another Flanders complaint led HostGator to take down the website of MassResistance, a leading pro-family organization fighting LGBTQ activism. Over the years, Flanders has lost repeated battles with MR regarding content pertaining to him on their site that he wanted removed.

The MR site is now being hosted by Jared Heath’s company, Altha Technology. Heath hosts the main Americans For Truth site that was taken down for more than two weeks after Flanders targeted AFTAH for three separate posts that published his mugshot photo from an assault charge in Maine. He claimed the mugshot photo below was “copyrighted.”

After Flanders appealed to ISP (Internet Service Provider) FirstLight Fiber, with which Heath and Altha Tech. had a contract, the corporation suddenly closed down AFTAH’s entire website.

Flanders is attempting to raise funds for a legal fund “because of the anti-lgbt hate groups targeting me.” Yet he has not responded to a request from Americans For Truth President Peter LaBarbera to publicly and privately apologize to Christian singer and songwriter Paulie Heath, who he cruelly mocked in a wicked graphic distorting her face (see below). See also the LifeSiteNews article on Flanders’ harassment campaign against AFTAH.

E-Bully? Adam Flanders has been waging an e-war of fraudulent web “abuse” complaints against AFTAH and other pro-family groups. He absurdly claims that the above mugshot from a 2006 assault arrest in Maine is his own “copyrighted” property.

Catholic Action League Blasts Boston City Council Vote on Question 3 – Transgender Law’s ‘Incitement’ Provision Could Threaten Free Speech

September 19th, 2018

News Release, Sept. 19, 2018

Catholic Action League Criticizes Boston City Council Vote on Question 3

The Catholic Action League of Massachusetts is criticizing the Boston City Council for its resolution, passed earlier today, urging a yes vote on Question 3, which would uphold a 2016 act making so-called gender identity a protected category in Massachusetts civil rights law pertaining to public accommodations.

In July, 2016, Governor Charlie Baker signed into law Senate Bill 2407, An Act Relative to Transgender Anti-Discrimination. The law authorizes the Commonwealth to prosecute, fine and imprison businessmen and professionals who refuse to recognize men who claim to be women as women and women who claim to be men as men. According to the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination and Attorney General Maura Healey, the law could, in some circumstances, apply to churches. Under the provisions of Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 272, Section 98, which prohibits “incitement” to discrimination, freedom of expression could also be restricted.

Question 3 is a referendum on the repeal of the measure.

The Catholic Action League called the City Council resolution “a triumph of progressivist ideology over common sense, moral sanity, and biological reality.”

Catholic Action League Executive Director C. J. Doyle made the following comment: “SB 2407 is a coercive and punitive measure which imposes sanctions on citizens who refuse to participate in the lie that persons can, through some subjective process, change their gender. Contrary to the assertions of Councilor Ayanna Pressley, adhering to the perennial wisdom of Western Civilization—reflected in science, legal tradition, and moral understanding—that gender is immutable, does not constitute hatred, and should not be penalized as discrimination. By today’s vote, the Boston City Council has demonstrated, once again, that it prefers pandering to policy making.”

Robert Oscar Lopez: Christians Who Oppose Ex-Gay Therapy Need a Reality Check

September 18th, 2018

Robert Oscar Lopez. See his other articles on American Thinker. Also see his blog English Manif.

“The gay movement is trying to ban homosexuals from getting help so they can turn toward heterosexuality.”–Robert Oscar Lopez

Folks, Robert Oscar Lopez is a brilliant and original thinker who is unafraid to go where many other Christians and conservatives will not, taking on emerging “political correctness” on homosexuality within the Body of Christ. Here Lopez deals with Christian leaders who condemn ex-“gay” therapy (he uses “conversion therapy,” a term we avoid since it has been politicized by Big LGBTQ), and the bad effect this has on homosexual strugglers who truly want to “pursue intimacy with the opposite sex.” Which is to say: they do not want to retain any kind of same-sex identity, the maintenance of which, as supposed “gay Christians,” is all the rage these days in some Christian circles (see the “Revoice” controversy). Visit Lopez’s blog, English Manif, and keep coming back; you will not be disappointed.  — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH.org; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

Christians Who Oppose Conversion Therapy Need a Reality Check

By Robert Oscar Lopez

This article first appeared in American Thinker, Sept. 13, 2018

To be loving does not mean to be gullible.  Jesus Christ mentions that we will come across dishonest people, especially among those who have prestige (or are seeking it).  We should love people, but that does not mean we should let them take advantage of us.  Or fool us.  Or trick us.

In that spirit, I want Rosaria Butterfield, Sam Allberry, and Jackie Hill Perry to answer a simple yes-or-no question.  No long filibustering paragraphs.  No detours into extensive complaints about what other Christians are supposedly doing.  No lifeline block-quotes from Augustine.  Just yes or no.  Here:

Yes or no.

Here’s why this question is urgent.  Butterfield, Allberry, and Perry are currently superstars in the world of Protestant Christianity, constantly summoned to discuss issues of sexuality in the church.  They all had experience with same-sex attraction.  They all say they believe in Christ.

And they all attack conversion therapy.  According to her profile on Alchetron, Rosaria Butterfield believes the following:

She does not identify herself as “ex-gay” and does not think any Christians should identify themselves as “gay Christians.”  She notes that “[t]he job of the adjective is to change the noun.”  Butterfield has criticized conversion therapy for contending that the “primary goal of Christianity is to resolve homosexuality through heterosexuality, thus failing to see that repentance and victory over sin are God’s gifts and failing to remember that sons and daughters of the King can be full members of Christ’s body and still struggle with sexual temptation.”  Butterfield suggests this is a version of the prosperity gospel.

More Facebook Censorship — AFTAH Punished 30 Days for Criticizing Chicago Homosexual Perversion-fest International Mr. Leather

September 17th, 2018

Folks, to paraphrase the Gipper (Ronald Reagan) in his famous 1980 debate quip to Walter Mondale, “There you go again, Mr. Zuckerberg.” Coming after one petty Facebook censorship takedown of an AFTAH FB post [see it here], the social media giant just informed me that “You can’t post, comment or use [Facebook] Messenger for 30 days. This is because 2 of your posts go against our Community Standards on hate speech, and because you previously posted something that didn’t follow our standards.”

This is one the offending posts, which appeared on both my own (“Peter LaBarbera”) Facebook page as well as my “Americans For Truth About Homosexuality” page. Note that I had blocked out the indecency and labelled it “Wrong”–which I suspect is my biggest Facebook “crime.” So now it is “hateful” to call out one of the most perverted deviant sex (sadomasochistic) celebrations in the world (you know: men calling themselves sex “pigs,” etc., as: wrong, gross, twisted and, yes, satanic?

No explanation. No defense of their worldview. Just the same old “hate” mantra. The “techie” Left, super self-righteous and all about power and (thought) control, is killing free speech and reasoned discourse in this nation, and conservatives are still struggling to figure out how to fight it. More photos below after the jump. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

ISP FirstLight Fiber Shuts Down Entire AFTAH Website – Kowtows to Convicted Homosexual Sex Offender and Web Bully Adam Flanders

September 17th, 2018

Flanders sends emails claiming mugshot from assault arrest against teen boy is “copyrighted” property; two gullible corporations buy it and close down AFTAH sites

Media Release September 17, 2018
Contact: Peter LaBarbera, americansfortruth@gmail; 312-324-3787

A “Copyrighted” Mugshot? This mugshot photo of homosexual activist and registered sex offender Adam Flanders is from a November 24, 2006 arrest in Maine on assault charges against his underage boyfriend. Flanders–who later held a knife to the neck of the boy, then 16, to threaten the boy’s dad–is on the registered Sex Offenders list in Maine and California after pleading guilty in 2008 for  “Sexual Abuse of a Minor” for having sex with an underage boy. Flanders says he is the “sole copyright owner” of the photo–and he used that absurd claim to threaten AFTAH’s web service provider, FirstLight Fiber, which bowed to his demands. The photo above was evidently taken after Flanders was arrested on assault charges on November 24, 2006, according to his Criminal History Record as obtained from the Maine State Bureau of Identification. (See page 2 for Assault arrest apparently associated with this “11-25-06” mugshot.) NOTE: Flanders’ claim that the above mugshot photo exposes his Social Security number is also bogus. The numbers on the black card are NOT his SSN number; the information on his jail wristband is not legible. Perhaps that explains why this same photo remains on MassResistance’s site despite Flanders’ fanatical attempts over several years to have it and other material removed.

CHICAGO, IL—The entire website for Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH.org) was shut down for more than two weeks beginning August 24 after a convicted homosexual sex offender, Adam Flanders, threatened a lawsuit against FirstLight Fiber, the Internet Service Provider (ISP) for AFTAH’s web host company–claiming his mugshot photo from a 2006 assault arrest against a minor boy was “copyrighted” material.

Flanders, a homosexual activist, is a registered sex offender in both Maine and California, where he now lives. He pleaded guilty in 2008 to “Sexual Abuse of a Minor” involving a boy aged 14 or 15. He also admitted to engaging in homosexual sex with his then-14-year-old boyfriend when he (Flanders) was 18–in a 2007 public letter exposing a Maine “gay youth” club. Later, Flanders sought to retract the letter and demanded that web sites take it down.

Flanders has a long history of making such litigious and mendacious threats containing absurd, exaggerated and sometimes nonsensical claims against pro-family leaders and websites that have exposed his past criminal offenses and other actions.

The mugshot photo in question can be viewed at upper right. AFTAH will not take it down because it is obviously in the public domain and not “owned” by Flanders. (Mugshots are routinely used in news stories and political ads.) Note also that after years of Flanders’ harassing threats and even a $1 million “defamation” lawsuit against pro-family hero Brian Camenker and his organization, MassResistance (see below), the identical Flanders 2006 mugshot photo printed by AFTAH remains posted throughout the MR site. Had Flanders’ accusations any legal merit, would Camenker leave them up, risking further ordeals?

Weighing legal options

Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans For Truth, and Jared Heath, CEO of Altha Technology, AFTAH’s web host company, are weighing their legal options against Flanders and FirstLight Fiber, the ISP that capitulated to his spurious email demand. Another ISP, HostGator, took down an AFTAH temporary site (see below); that site, “Americans For Truth Censored,” remains down.

“Flanders’ reckless actions and the ISPs that bowed to them have caused me and Jared Heath, the ex-Marine who runs AFTAH’s web host company, severe emotional and mental distress. They also have caused us significant financial harm and damage to our reputations,” said LaBarbera. “I know Flanders wants to erase his crimes from the web, especially his Sexual Abuse of a Minor conviction, but we will never give in to his intimidation tactics.”

Internet Bully: This vicious and venomous image was created by Maine “gay” activist Adam Flanders to bully Christian singer/songwriter Paulie Heath and intimidate the Heath family. Paulie’s husband, pro-family hero Mike Heath, was head of the Christian Civic League of Maine at the time. See below.

LaBarbera also called on Flanders to privately and publicly apologize to Paulie Heath, Jared’s mother, for the horrific and demented web-bullying graphic he created in 2005 cruelly distorting her visage (see below).

Flanders held knife at teen boyfriend’s throat

As this 2013 U.S. District Court document reveals (p.2), Flanders was arrested again in 2007 for another, more violent crime involving the same boy, now 16. According to U.S. Magistrate Judge Margaret Kravchuk’s decision, Flanders knifed the father of the teen boy lover after violating a court protection order to stay away from the boy. In that altercation, when the boy’s father came to rescue his son, Flanders held a knife at the boy’s throat, and knifed both the father and the boy in the altercation.

FirstLight took down the entire AFTAH website on August 24, 2018, three days after receiving an “abuse” complaint demanding “removal of copyrighted content pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).” AFTAH site has been up since September 10 using a separate IP address, but Flanders is continually working to take it down, and is again threatening legal action against LaBarbera and Heath.

FirstLight’s reckless takedown of an entire pro-family website containing thousands of articles–based on a single email containing outlandish assertions by a homosexual activist trying to erase his criminal history–demonstrates the growing crisis of anti-conservative censorship in Corporate America.

As AFTAH was reeling from Flanders’ harassment, it learned that Facebook had demanded that the AFTAH Facebook page take down a harmless post involving another homosexual activist, Phillip Picardi. The post, shown HERE and below, shows Picardi taking a selfie of him kissing another man as he defiantly gives the finger to critics upset at his defense of an article promoting anal sex in Teen Vogue, a magazine for young girls. Picardi is digital editor of Teen Vogue.

The following is a sample of Flanders’ previous outrageous and litigious stunts:

Standing Against ‘Drag Queen Story Hours’ – Corrupting Kids at a Public Library Near You

September 15th, 2018

Queer Role Models for Kids? A self-styled “drag queen” (this is a man) holds a copy of “Princess Boy,” a “children’s” picture book promoting gender confusion about a boy who “likes to wear his princess tiara,” etc. This introduction from the opening page of the “Drag Queen Story Hour” website reads: “Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) is just what it sounds like–drag queens reading stories to children in libraries, schools, and bookstores. DQSH captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models. In spaces like this, kids are able to see people who defy rigid gender restriction and imagine a world where people can present as they wish, where dress up is real.”

_____________________________________

Folks, one of the dirtiest secrets of the homosexual-bisexual-transgender (aka “gay”) activist movement is that it has been sexualizing and corrupting children, in some form or another, from the beginning. Back when homosexualist power was a tiny sliver of what it is today, LGB(T) activists tried to hide that element of their agenda. But now that they dominate society at the elite level, with zero accountability from the media, their contempt for the innocence of even very young children is “out of the closet.”

For the “T” lobby these unconscionable Story Hours are a “three-fer”: they get to mock real women, indoctrinate innocent, impressionable children, and mainstream “queer” deviance all at the same time! But the main motivation, it seems, is for pro-LGBTQueer parents (especially homosexuals themselves) to transmit their decadent values to their children. Thus “gay parenting” serves as a catalyst for the wider corruption of kids in the culture. My friend Gina Miller ably tackles this disturbing new brand of perversion-promotion below. — Peter LaBarbera, Americans For Truth; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

Standing Against ‘Drag Queen Story Hour’

By Gina Miller, first published Sept. 14, 2018

Last Saturday, I was part of a protest against a “Drag Queen Story Hour” being held at a public library in Mobile, Alabama. These events, which are happening in libraries and public schools all across the nation, are one of the newer weapons in the homofascist arsenal, and they target little children from three to eight years old.

The events are grotesque spectacles of men dressed garishly as “women” reading “children’s” books (that include feminist, homosexual and “transgender” themed stories) to little ones
whose parents foolishly choose to bring them. A December 2016 column by a writer for the DailyWire reports that the “Drag Queen Story Hours” were spawned by homosexual and feminist groups in New York and San Francisco, in response to Donald Trump’s election in 2016.

Facebook Censors AFTAH Post Blocking Same-sex Kiss, Poking Fun at Defiant Homosexual Activist Phillip Picardi

September 14th, 2018

Below is a graphic about the recent act of Facebook censorship against Americans For Truth About Homosexuality’s (AFTAH) FB page. Our commentary at right was not a part of the original deleted post. The circled portion is Facebook’s notification to AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera; it reads:

“Only you can see this post because it goes against our standards on hate speech.”

Honestly, I don’t know what triggered the left-leaning techies at Facebook (or that FB “algorithm” we keep hearing about in the news): was it the use of the word “queer,” even though I was just paraphrasing a widely used slogan by the homosexual group “Queer Nation”? (Note: almost all major LGBTQ groups and websites use that word.) Or was it that I covered up the indecent “gay kiss”?

Either way, FB’s oppressive application of leftist “hate” politics is deeply troubling. The Soviet Thought Police had nothing on these morally-challenged techies.

How can conservatives go on in the most popular social media platforms under these conditions? Talk to almost any pro-family advocate on Facebook who defends biblical sexuality and you will find similar stories of heavy-handed and often petty acts of FB censorship. It has happened to us before. Perhaps it’s time to break up these leftist de facto monopolies.–Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH.org; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera
