Chastity Bono, Transsexuality and the Church

Friday, June 12th, 2009

chastity_bono_ny-daily-news.jpgReport of Chastity Bono’s “gender change” in the New York Daily News.

Folks, this news story is so sad. Chastity Bono is now and will always be female, as God made her, but we can expect the media to repeat the GLBT Lobby’s praise of Bono for her “courage” as a celebrity “trailblazer,” blah, blah, blah. We certainly echo Laurie Higgins’ call to pray that Ms. Bono will never go through with a body-disfiguring “sex change” operation. Please pray for this woman. — Peter LaBarbera


By Laurie Higgins, reprinted from Illinois Family Institute

Chastity Bono’s publicist announced that Chastity is pursuing a “sex change.” Chastity, as everyone knows, is the only daughter of Cher and the deceased Sonny Bono. Many years ago, Chastity made the decision to embrace homosexuality, and as of March, she has begun the process of “changing sexes.”

Of course, rational people realize that changing one’s name, cross-dressing, ingesting hormones naturally produced by the opposite sex, and electively amputating healthy parts of one’s sexual anatomy don’t really change one’s biological sex. The emperor was really wearing no clothes, and Chastity, who has assumed the moniker “Chaz,” will always really be a woman.

It’s utterly confounding that society en masse believes or pretends to believe that “transgenderism” reflects a real phenomenon of people actually trapped in the wrong body rather than a profound disruption in the development of a secure and proper sexual identity. Doctors who perform such surgeries are engaging in medical malpractice and violating the increasingly meaningless and antiquated Hippocratic Oath.

MassResistance Exposes ‘Transgender Prom’ where Sadistic Leatherman Pervert ‘Greets’ Kids

Thursday, June 11th, 2009

massresistance_mr_bostonleather-transprom.jpgA ‘Leatherman’ Attends Boston’s “Transgender” Youth Prom: Mr. Boston Leather, Tim Starkey, who self-identifies as a “leather BDSM fetishist,” was an official greeter at Boston’s “Transgender Prom” May 9. Adult transsexuals (men in dresses) also were seen at the event supposedly for “youth 22 years old and under.” Bottom line: homosexual activists simply cannot be trusted with America’s youth. Check out this shocking eye-witness report and you will see why homosexual activists have struggled so hard to keep groups like AFTAH and MassResistance from exposing their events. Is this the “Safe Schools” agenda of President Obama and his Education Secretary, Arne Duncan?


Folks, when it comes to the homosexual/transsexual “queer” activist movement, it seems the continuous story line is: Can it get any weirder, any more perverse? And then it does. Our good friends over at MassResistance once again have done the hard work of exposing part of the REAL homosexual youth agenda — you know, the one in which adult homosexual activists recklessly expose vulnerable young people to adult sexual perverts and harmful lifestyles. This is hardly the first “gay youth” scandal.

Take the time to read this shocking eye-witness story and then ask yourself: how is it that President Obama has the “audacity” to promote a man, Education Department “Safe Schools” czar Kevin Jennings, whose organization (GLSEN) has for more than a decade promoted all things transsexual to youth — yes, in the name of “safety.” This “transgender prom” travesty is part of Jennings’ perverse legacy — GLSEN has sponsored or been associated with other events that corrupted and endangered youth, like the notorious “Fistgate” episode, and a GLSEN conference in Chicago in which pornographic homosexual magazines advertising “gay” sex clubs and leather bars were passed out to underage youth.

Bottom line: such recklessness toward youth would never be tolerated if it weren’t part of a left-wing, politically correct agenda. It is wrong and incredibly irresponsible to use American schools to “promote homosexuality”, transsexuality, bisexuality — and, God help us, sexual sadism — to young people. TAKE ACTION: Please call and write Education Secretary Arne Duncan ([email protected]; 202-401-3000) and politely urge him to withdraw his appointment of homosexual extremist and anti-Christian bigot Kevin Jennings as Deputy Assistant Secretary for Safe and Drug-Free Schools. — Peter LaBarbera,

White House ‘Comfortable’ With Anti-Catholic Homosexual Activist Harry Knox on Faith Council

Thursday, June 11th, 2009

Appointee blasted Pope on condoms, calls his homosexuality “an unchangeable gift from God”

harry_knox_msnbc.jpgHarry Knows Better than God?  Homosexual activist and Obama “faith council” appointee Harry Knox calls his homosexuality an “unchangeable gift from God” in an MSNBC debate. Knox has also called Pope Benedict a “discredited leader” and the (Catholic) Knights of Columbus the pope’s “foot soldiers” in a “discredited army of oppression.” TAKE ACTION: urge your Congressman and Senators (202-224-3121; 202-225-3121) to ask President Obama to remove Knox — with his deep prejudices against traditional religion — from his Faith Advisory Council.

Folks, click here to see the AFTAH’s “Satan’s Talking Points” post on Harry Knox’s MSNBC TV debate with AFTAH Board Member Matt Barber, in which he claimed that: “being gay or lesbian is an immutable, unchangeable gift from God, one for which I am very grateful. And it would fly in the face of my respect for God to give that gift back.” (The YouTube video is embedded in the story.) We highly recommend, from which this article is reprinted, and also, which has done several excellent pieces on the Knox controversy:

By Peter J. Smith, reprinted from

WASHINGTON, D.C., June 5, 2009 ( – The White House says the President is “comfortable” with a homosexual activist on his advisory council of faith-based initiatives, a man who has come under attack for having vilified the Catholic Church, calling the current Pope a “discredited leader” and the Knights of Columbus his “foot soldiers” in a “discredited army of oppression.” reported [June 3] that the White House has essentially shrugged at calls from Catholics that Harry Knox, the former director of the “religion and faith program” at the Human Rights Counsel, a homosexual lobby group, be removed from the President’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships for his insulting and bigoted language toward the Catholic Church (see LSN coverage).

Senate “Hate Crimes” Bill Proponents Settle on Amendment Strategy to Avoid Filibuster

Thursday, June 11th, 2009

Folks, this article from the homosexual Washington Blade newspaper is a must-read. Note that pro-homosexual strategists in Washington fear a filibuster of a “stand alone” version of the bill. We’ve included the key portions below. TAKE ACTION: the anti-Christian homosexual lobby group Human Rights Campaign is pushing hard to get “Hate Crimes” passed. Call your U.S. Senators at 202-224-3121 and urge them to oppose S. 909 or any “Hate Crimes” legislation — as an amendment or a stand-alone bill. For more on the dangers of Orwellian “Thought Crimes” laws, go HERE, HERE and a legal analysis of the House version of S. 909 HERE

Senate to pass hate crimes bill as amendment

HRC calls for vote before summer’s end

By CHRIS JOHNSON, Washington Blade | Jun 8 2009

Senate leadership has decided to pass hate crimes legislation as an amendment to another bill instead of a standalone piece of legislation, according to the Human Rights Campaign.

Trevor Thomas, an HRC spokesperson, told the Blade in a statement Monday that the Senate settled on this method of passage.

“We understand that Senate leadership does not believe a hearing or mark up on the bill is necessary and plans to bring it directly to the floor as an amendment to another moving vehicle,” he said.

‘Gay’ Leader Kevin Jennings Says Dream Is to ‘Promote Homosexuality’ in Schools

GLSEN Speakers Tout ‘Gay’ Lessons for Kindergartners


Promoting Homosexuality: Kevin Jennings, Obama appointee and founder of the Gay, Lesbian Straight Education Network, said in 1997 that he looked forward to the day when parents would react to reports that schools are “promoting homosexuality” by saying, “Yeah, who cares?”


GLSEN leaders contend that effective redefinition of the next generation’s attitude toward homosexuality requires the positive portrayals of homosexuality starting in kindergarten.  According to GLSEN activist Jaki Williams, children at that age are “developing their superego,” and “that’s when the saturation process needs to begin.”

Dear Readers,

AFTAH has been exposing the radical agenda of Kevin Jennings and the organization he founded —  the Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network (GLSEN) — for a long time. This article on a GLSEN conference in New York City was first published in the Lambda Report [the publication that preceded Americans For Truth About Homosexuality], in early 1998.

Brian Burt’s firsthand report reveals both the frankness of Jennings and fellow homosexual activists in expressing their revolutionary goals, and GLSEN’s agenda of manipulating very young minds to support homosexuality. The “saturation process” quotation above should give pause to even liberal-minded parents who might be wary of GLSEN’s utilitarian strategy of supplanting the parents’ role in guiding their children’s moral upbringing with teacher-activists intent on indoctrinating even kindergartners (!!) in the celebration of homosexuality.

Kevin Jennings has been appointed by President Obama and Education Secretary Arne Duncan as Deputy Assistant Secretary of Education for the Department of Safe and Drug-Free Schools. We will be loading all Lambda Report articles online, including others about GLSEN and Jennings. — Peter LaBarbera,

‘Gay’ Leader Kevin Jennings Says Dream Is to ‘Promote Homosexuality’ in Schools
GLSEN Speakers Tout ‘Gay’ Lessons for Kindergartners

By Brian J. Burt

January/February 1998, Lambda Report, Americans For Truth

NEW YORK CITY—The head of a homosexual teachers group said he looks forward to the day when “promoting homosexuality” in schools will be seen in a positive light, while others at a recent conference sponsored by his organization advocated exposing kindergartners to pro-homosexual lessons.

“I can envision a day when straight people say, ‘So what if you’re promoting homosexuality,’” said Kevin Jennings, cofounder and executive director of the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network (GLSEN), at an October 25 conference here. “Or straight kids [will] say [to a male homosexual friend], ‘Hey, why don’t you and your boyfriend come over before you go to prom and try your tuxes on at my house?’

Forget Marriage in June – for Obama, It’s ‘Gay’ Pride Month

Wednesday, June 10th, 2009

“No president, even Bill Clinton, has issued such a radical embrace of the entire homosexual agenda,” says Knight

obama_homosexual_logo.gifCandidate Barack Obama had a special logo for homosexual and transsexual “pride.” No wonder “queer” activists have high expectations for him to carry forward their agenda as President.


By Robert Knight – Guest Columnist for OneNewsNow [to sign up for OneNews Now’s Daily News Brief, go HERE] – 6/9/2009

For the first time in history, a U.S. president has issued a White House proclamation celebrating transgenderism — along with homosexuality, lesbianism, and bisexuality.

In his June 1 “Pride Month” proclamation, Barack Obama boasted of appointing Senate-confirmed openly homosexual nominees to high executive offices, described reluctance to accept homosexuality as “discrimination and prejudice,” and called for passage of the entire homosexual political agenda, including programs for “LGBT youth.”

No president, even Bill Clinton, has issued such a radical embrace of the entire homosexual agenda. To give “teeth” to the LGBT youth emphasis, President Obama recently appointed Kevin Jennings, the founder of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, as the Assistant Secretary of Education for Safe and Drug Free Schools. [See AFTAH articles on Jennings HERE and HERE (his “[F–k] ’em quotation on the “religious right”).] Jennings’ group backs homosexual lessons for children, beginning in kindergarten, and sponsored a Massachusetts conference in 2000 in which children as young as 12 were instructed graphically about how to perform homosexual acts.

DATE: June 8, 2009

Lynchburg, VA – Matt Barber, Director of Cultural Affairs with both Liberty Counsel and Liberty Alliance Action issued the following statement today on news that the U.S. Supreme Court has upheld the military’s prohibition against homosexual conduct within the ranks of the armed forces. The high court refused an appeal from former Army Captain James Pietrangelo II, who was discharged after his superiors learned that he self-identified as “gay”:

“This is a military victory of a different sort,” said Barber. “Today our armed forces triumphed over the enemy of moral relativism; an enemy that seeks to replace military wisdom with San Francisco vice. This is a victory for our fighting young men and women and for the nation.

Listen Online: LaBarbera, Harvey Discuss Kevin Jennings Appointment at Dept. of Education

Friday, June 5th, 2009

one-in-ten_jennings.jpgJennings’ Bad Math: Kevin Jennings is so much the “queer” activist that even after the gay-activist myth that “one in 10” people in society is homosexual had been thoroughly discredited, he was still using it in his book title. Click HERE to listen to the Martha Kleder’s CWA interview with Peter LaBarbera and Linda Harvey of Mission America. TAKE ACTION: call Secretary of Education Arne Duncan at 202-401-3000  (e-mail: [email protected]) and urge him to withdraw his appointment of anti-religious bigot Jennings as Assistant Deputy Secretary for the Office of Safe & Drug-Free Schools. Call President Obama at 202-456-1414.

From the Concerned Women for America multi-media department:

Bigoted Homosexual Activist Kevin Jennings Nominated to Education Post      6/4/2009

Kevin Jennings, the founder of the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), has been nominated by President Obama to the Education Department. As Assistant Deputy Secretary for the Department of Education’s Office of Safe & Drug Free Schools, Jennings would hold sway over a host of federal programs directing anti-bullying programs – programs that GLSEN was essentially responsible for promoting as a way of normalizing harmful sexual behaviors among even young children. Two people who know the most about Kevin Jennings’ anti-Christian bigotry, promotion of perverted sexual acts to minors, as well as the promotion of sexual confusion to the youngest of school children, as Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality and Linda Harvey, head of Mission America. They describe why Jennings is unfit for a senior position in the federal Department of Education and what citizens can do about it now to prevent his confirmation. Listen | Download
