We’re Feeling the Love: Americans For Truth Blamed for 9/11…

Wednesday, September 12th, 2007

Note from “perfectly straight” yet foul-mouthed “Ben Lowrey,” sent today via the Americans For Truth website (emphasis added):

[E-mail subject header:] You people…

…are [f—–g] ridiculous. No wonder you were attacked on 9/11, Peter, you are probably a [f—–g] closet [sic] homosexual yourself that is so scared by who you are you have committed your entire life to defeating who you are. After you made [sic] it illegal to be gay, why [don’t] you try to re-enact slavery? [F—–g] people, a) you won’t win …history has constantly proven that evolution and acceptance will not only OCCUR, but will occur at an exponential rate. You lives have been wasted, good job, failures. Cheers, Ben

ps. [I’m] perfectly straight. 

MUST SEE VIDEO: Charlene Cothran Overcomes Homosexuality: Come See Her in Chicago on Friday, Oct. 5

Wednesday, September 12th, 2007


Folks, you hear a lot of bad news these days, but here’s some very good news: men and women are leaving homosexuality and living a life in line with God’s moral precepts — not in rebellion against them. Click this “700 Club” link to watch a wonderful video segment about how God drew Charlene Cothran OUT of the homosexual activist movement. Cothran, who went from “gay” activist to Christian evangelist, will be speaking at Americans For Truth’s banquet on Friday, October 5, in Lombard, Illinois, outside Chicago. See below or click HERE for more details and how to sign up online.

I hope you can come hear Charlene on Oct. 5, and Massachusetts father David Parker, who is battling the dangerous homosexual pressure campaign to indoctrinate young schoolchildren in pro-homosexuality viewpoints — without their parents’ knowledge. This banquet will educate you with not one but two of the most compelling speakers in the world on the homosexual issue — and I promise that it will energize you in the fight for truth for the coming year. In the process, you will be supporting AFTAH’s mission of answering the lies of the “GLBT” (that’s Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender) movement, with information that the Political Correct media will not give you.

How to Sign Up for the Oct. 5 Banquet

One more thing: please consider buying a ticket for your pastor or priest to come to the banquet, and make arrangements for your teenage children, grandchildren, or their friends, to come. Many pastors are ignorant about these matters, or too timid to discuss them effectively from the pulpit. And so many young people these days are believing the lie that people are “born gay,” and that’s “who they are.” But in the case of Charlene, “being gay” is who she WAS.

Homosexuality is a changeable behavior, not a “proud,” inborn identity. Young people need to see real, live men and women who have overcome same-sex desires — to strengthen their faith in God, and help them to share this heartwarming truth with their peers.

So bring a teenager or college student to this banquet on Friday, October 5 to help inoculate them against pro-homosexual professors in college and against a pop culture that celebrates sexual experimentation and denigrates Biblical morality.

Watch this video about Charlene Cothran. Note how God turned her “pride” into shame: her transformation began when she felt ashamed at a “gay pride” event for African Americans, in Chicago! At the end of the video you can watch Pat Robertson’s heartfelt prayer for people caught up in homosexual sin. I don’t see any “hate” in this man who so many liberals love to … hate. Nope, instead I see the love of Christ for people who are going down the wrong road of homosexuality. In fact, none of the people of faith I know “hates” homosexuals; we simply disagree with them and want them to know the that same indescribable joy that lights up Charlene’s face, as you can watch on the video!

Charlene tells me that part of her new life is meeting all the pro-family leaders like Pat Robertson — people she once despised as a homosexual activist — and learning that they are kind-hearted folk who just believe the Bible and sincerely want men and women to find freedom through Jesus Christ.

It is a privilege to welcome Charlene back to Chicago, and this time without that sense of shame! I hope you can join me in hearing her God-glorifying testimony of COMING OUT … from homosexuality. See below or sign up online HERE, or CLICK THIS LINK for more information on the Oct. 5 banquet.

God bless you,

Peter LaBarbera

Barber on Craig Scandal: Wide Stance and a Tap Dance

Tuesday, September 11th, 2007

This column was originally published by Concerned Women for America:

By J. Matt Barber

Heard the one about the U.S. senator who walked into the toilet with an undercover cop on perversion patrol?

Of course you have. Everyone’s heard it, but unfortunately, it’s not just a bad bar room joke.

Still, liberals in Congress and their friends in the press are laughing themselves cross-eyed. There’s another Republican involved in a “gay” sex scandal, so predictably the “mainstream” media’s all aflutter. They want to keep the story alive as long as they can, hoping to recreate the Foley effect in 2008.

For all six of you who haven’t heard, Craig pled guilty to disorderly conduct after he was accused of soliciting an undercover male police officer for “gay” sex in a public restroom.

Craig has denied the allegations saying he “overreacted” by pleading guilty in hopes that he could just “make it go away.”

It didn’t go away.

This story’s got that sexy, salacious stuff that makes the Pavlovian media pant: Another Republican fall from grace and a fresh, imagined batch of hot, gooey “hypocrisy” with which to broadly tar the entire GOP.

Of course, when liberal Democrats like Bill Clinton, Barney Frank and Gerry Studds are caught, it’s just a “personal matter involving sex.” But when it’s a Republican – especially one with a conservative voting record like Craig – then, holy restroom romance Batman! It’s front page news for weeks.

But whether or not the allegations against Craig are true, the scandal serves to remind us that sexual deviancy is a bipartisan dilemma. There have now been several high profile cases of politicians – Democrats and Republicans – busted while “looking for love in all the wrong places.”

Youth Corruption Watch: MTV to Air Bisexual Dating Show Starring MySpace’s Tila Tequila

Friday, September 7th, 2007

tila_tequila.jpg I confess to being such a square that I had never heard of Tila Tequila until today. But neither had MSNBC’s Tucker Carlson until he did the following 2006 interview with her, now posted on YouTube: On that video — which alone is an education in the awesome power of the web — Tequila (Tila Nguyen) talks only about finding a boyfriend, not a girlfriend. Apparently she’s “evolved” since then, as politically correct liberals love to say (even though promoting homosexual behavior seems to run counter to Darwin’s theory).

Nobody ever charged MTV — which has relentlessly promoted “alternate” sexual lifestyles — with caring about Biblical morality. But how tragic that a top video youth network would stoop to using bisexuality to titillate its audience in the quest for viewers.

Advice to parents:  if you have cable, don’t allow a TV in your kids’ rooms; better yet, find a way to kick MTV out of your house altogether. — Peter LaBarbera

AP reports today from Los Angeles: 

MTV to air bisexual dating show
‘A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila’ airs Oct. 9

A bisexual dating show featuring a woman who gained fame on MySpace is in the works for MTV.

“A Shot at Love With Tila Tequila,” in which 16 men and 16 women will compete for Tequila’s affections, is set to debut Oct. 9 on the cable channel, Television Week reported Thursday.

“Tila Tequila made a name for herself by doing things her way, captivating legions of fans online, both men and women,” said MTV executive Tony DiSanto. “Now she is taking that attitude and sex appeal to her own TV series where she is looking for a mate … by again, captivating a group of both men and women.”

Tequila’s MySpace page includes racy photos, her music and a Time magazine description of the singer-model-actress-blogger (born Tila Nguyen) as an Internet sensation and “the Madonna of MySpace.”

As GOP Attempts to ‘Clean House’ Senator Specter is Wrong to Oppose, Says Pro-Family Group

FOR IMMMEDIATE RELEASE:  September 7, 2007

CONTACT:  Diane Gramley: 814-271-9078 or 814-437-5355

Harrisburg, Penn. – Under pressure from the Republican leadership, Saturday’s announcement by Senator Larry Craig (R-ID) of his intention to resign seemed like an end to the sordid tale that began with the revelation that he had pled guilty to misdemeanor disorderly conduct charges after being arrested for soliciting homosexual sex in a men’s bathroom at the Minneapolis- St. Paul airport on June 11.  Three days later, enter Senator Arlen Specter (R-PA), the only Republican to publicly defend Senator Craig.  The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), a statewide pro-family group, issued a statement today saying Senator Specter should not have then and should not now continue to encourage Senator Craig to reconsider his intent to resign.

Gay Activists & Gay Reporters Mingle and Strategize Together at Homosexual Journalists Conference

Friday, September 7th, 2007

foxnewsad3-nlgja.jpg This FOX News Channel ad ran in the program guide of the recent National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association conference in San Diego. 

The following is Allyson Smith’s first installment on the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA) conference in San Diego — which she attended representing Americans For Truth. Note the casual mixing of homosexual media with “mainstream” media – all sharing and strategizing around a pro-gay perspective — and the complete lack of opposing voices present at the NLGJA panels. (Allyson tells me that at one panel on “Don’t Ask/Don’t Tell,” the moderator said that opponents of homosexuals in the military were invited to speak but declined to attend.)

All this begs the question of whether homosexual reporters working in establishment media can truly be objective — i.e., fair and balanced —  especially when they are assigned to cover homosexual-related issues. Also, note that for ease of reading, we have not put quote marks around the word “gay” as we would normally do. – Peter LaBarbera

Gay Activists & Journalists Mingle and Strategize Together at National Gay Journalists Conference: Day 1 at the NLGJA

On Thursday, August 30, I attended the first of three days of the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association convention, held at the Westin Horton Plaza Hotel in downtown San Diego. Although I have been to many homosexual conferences and events since the dawn of the millennium, at times using my real name and at other times an assumed name, this would be my first time to attend such a convention as a totally “out” Christian conservative reporter under the auspices of an organization many homosexual activists hate: Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH), headed by longtime pro-family activist Peter LaBarbera.

A ‘Christian Crusader’ Ventures into the World of ‘Gay Journalism’

Friday, September 7th, 2007

   allysonsmith2.jpgThe photo at right appeared in the homosexual newspaper Dallas Voice’s story on Allyson Smith, who attended the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists (NLGJA) conference in San Diego representing Americans For Truth. Smith received a lot of attention at the annual event as a lone voice opposed to homosexuality. The NLGJA event is financed and sponsored each year by “mainstream” media corporations, including FOX News, which also recruited there. 

The following article first appeared on the blog of Mike Heath, who directs the Christian Civic League of Maine, and who is Chairman of the Board of Directors at Americans For Truth. As one who has both attended several National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA) conferences (openly, as a critic), and even spoken as a panelist at one, I will add that the NLGJA events have an odd mix of activism and journalism. They prominently feature activists like Besen who can fairly be described as pro-homosexual culture warriors, but they also are attended by professional journalists who claim to be objective, mostly as open homosexuals. (I would suspect that the typical media consumer has no clue that the NLGJA reporter they’re reading, watching, or listening to is “gay.”) 

Wayne’s predictable jibes are far less important than the question of whether openly (or “closeted”) homosexual journalists can cover homosexuality-related issues with any semblance of objectivity and fairness. — Peter LaBarbera 

A ‘Christian Crusader’ amidst the World of ‘Gay Journalism’
By Mike Heath | September 7, 2007

Most of us don’t even know that there is such a thing as a homosexual press.  If someone told us there was one we’d look at them askance and wonder which airport bathroom stall they just crawled out of.  Alas, not only is there such a thing … it is thriving.  How do I know?  It wasn’t FoxNews that told me.  Turns out FoxNews sponsors the homosexual press, and recruits from their ranks.  Fox was one among many familiar news sources who showed up to sponsor the National Gay and Lesbian Jounalist Association convention in San Diego a couple weeks ago.

One intrepid truth teller took time to show up.  Allyson Smith, a San Diego resident, attended the entire conference representing (openly) Americans For Truth.  It is important to know that Allyson lives in San Diego.  Truth tellers about homosexuality in the west have learned to live on fund-raising fumes.  It is harder to raise funds for truth telling about homosexuality than it is for Larry Craig to figure out his “intent.”  If Smith didn’t live in San Diego, the important and underrated organization Americans for Truth wouldn’t have had anybody at the conference.  They don’t have the money.  It is easy to raise money by loving all things gay, hating gays or helping gays.  It is hard to raise money to tell the truth about the so-called “gay” movement.

D. James Kennedy, on the Death of D. James Kennedy

Wednesday, September 5th, 2007

“Now, I know that someday I am going to come to what some people will say is the end of this life. They will probably put me in a box and roll me right down here in front of the church, and some people will gather around, and a few people will cry. But I have told them not to do that because I don’t want them to cry. I want them to begin the service with the Doxology and end with the Hallelujah chorus, because I am not going to be there, and I am not going to be dead. I will be more alive than I have ever been in my life, and I will be looking down upon you poor people who are still in the land of dying and have not yet joined me in the land of the living. And I will be alive forevermore, in greater health and vitality and joy than ever, ever, I or anyone has known before.”

D. James Kennedy, Ph.D., from the website of Evangelism Explosion, which Kennedy founded. The site also has a video memorial tribute and timeline on this amazing man’s life.
