Report Highlights Pedophile Connections of American Psychological Association

Thursday, August 20th, 2009

theo_sandfort.jpgAmericans for Pedophile Advocacy? Dutch pedophilia advocate Theo Sandfort is a Fellow with the American Psychological Society (APA). As part of his “research,” Sandfort once interviewed 25 boys from between the ages of 10 and 16 who were in “sexual relationships” with adults. The adult predators took Sandfort to interview their underage sexual “parters” (i.e., their child victims).  “For virtually all the boys … the sexual contact itself was experienced positively,” Sandfort duly reported. Not surprisingly, the APA, which has an overwhelming pro-homosexualist bias, has worked to cast doubt on the idea that people practicing homosexuality can make the healthy transition to heterosexuality.

Folks, Americans give far more credit to professional institutions like the American Psychological Society (APA) than they deserve. We forget the strong liberal, anti-faith bias of academia and especially the soft sciences — and the enormous cultural subversion that PC-driven professional organizations have engaged in over the years. (Groundbreaking “sexologist” Alfred Kinsey himself was a notorious pervert.) This includes, in the APA’s case, forays into the “study” of adult-child sex (pedophilia). Remarkably, as Lifesite’s Matthew Hoffman reports below, the APA continues its affiliation with known pedophilia advocate Theo Sandfort. Regardless of what it puts out on the (in)ability of people to change their “orientation” (translation: sexual practices, thoughts and habits), the APA has no moral authority on these matters given its documented conflict-of-interest stemming from an overwhelming pro-homosexualist bias. Conservatives should resist the temptation to cite the APA as authoritative when it happens to bend a degree or two in their direction. — Peter LaBarbera, www.aftah.org

Barack Obama’s Doublespeak on ‘Gay Marriage’ — Now He Takes on DOMA

Wednesday, August 19th, 2009

State senate candidate Obama unequivocally supported legalizing same-sex “marriage” in 1996

obama_pro_ssm.JPG

Obama Was For “Same-Sex Marriage” (and he Still Is): Above is a graphic that appeared in the Chicago homosexual newspaper Windy City Times — showing a “gay” questionnaire revealing Barack Obama’s explicit support for “legalizing same-sex marriage,” as a candidate for Illinois State Senate in 1996. Obama would later adapt his position because “strategically,” he understood that Republicans would use his radical support for homosexual “marriage” against him. Click on graphic to enlarge.

By Peter LaBarbera

Barack Obama sure has a strange way of showing his much-touted support for traditional “marriage.” On Monday, Obama’s Justice Department filed a legal brief against DOMA, the Defense of Marriage Act, which was signed into law by the last Democrat to occupy the Oval Office: Bill Clinton. Weeks before that, Obama’s administration had defended DOMA, setting off a flurry of protests from his gay-lesbian-bisexual-transgender-whatever allies.

DOMA — which only Congress can repeal — passed overwhelmingly in 1996 with bipartisan consensus (a mere 14 Democratic Senators voted “No”). It protects states from being forced to recognize out-of-state “gay marriages.” Its growing unpopularity among Democrats signals the near-complete moral collapse of the party of Harry S Truman, who surely would bristle at the Dems’ current overwhelming support of abortion-on-demand and homosexuality as non-negotiable, litmus-test issues.

VIDEO: LaBarbera Speaks Out on Obama Marriage Hypocrisy, Kevin Jennings and GLSEN ‘Fistgate’ Scandal

Tuesday, August 18th, 2009

WARNING: graphic descriptions documenting “gay” corruption of youth

Peter LaBarbera, president and founder of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality, opens AFTAH’s June 17, 2009 press conference on President Obama’s radical homosexual agenda. LaBarbera exposes Obama’s hypocrisy on traditional marriage, and plays the infamous “Fistgate” audiotape revealing how — at a “gay youth” event — underage girls and boys were exposed to graphic verbal “how-to” lessons on “fisting” and other homosexual perversions. (Fistgate occurred at a “queer” youth panel as part of a 2000 conference sponsored by GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network.) GLSEN founder Kevin Jennings was appointed by President Obama to head up the Dep’t of Education’s “Safe and Drug-Free Schools” agency. A DVD of the AFTAH press conference in Chicago is available for $20 postpaid.

NIV Study Bible on Romans: ‘Homosexual Practice Is Sinful in God’s Eyes’

Sunday, August 16th, 2009

God allows sin to run its course as an act of judgment

By Peter LaBarbera

What President Obama calls an “obscure line” in the New Testament Book of Romans condemning homosexual behavior is not obscure at all. In fact, in Scripture the proliferation of homosexual sin is a key sign of the downfall of a culture. The following is the culmination of key passage in Romans describing mankind’s descent into wickedness. We read in 1:18: “The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness.” The passage continues as men stopped glorifying God “but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.” The downward spiral into idolatry (1:22-23) continues:

[24] Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. [25] They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

[26] Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. [27] In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.

This pro-family press conference — largely ignored by the dominant liberal media — was organized by Americans For Truth About Homosexuality. Matt Barber, director of cultural affairs at the Liberty Counsel (and an AFTAH Board Member), was fired by Allstate Insurance Company in 2005 because he wrote an online article — on his own time — critical of organized homosexuality. Since then, he has risen to his current position as one of Americas leading defenders of natural marriage and family. He will be the keynote speaker at AFTAH’s fund-raising banquet outside Chicago on Oct. 24, 2009.

NARTH Scores ‘Very Strong’ Bias in APA Report against Ex-Gay Therapy

Thursday, August 13th, 2009

‘Some people can and do’ experience full change, says NARTH

PRESS RELEASE by the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH)
August 6, 2009

Contact: David Pruden, Phone: (888) 364-4744

NARTH’s Press Release on APA Gay and Lesbian Task Force Report

As a scientific and professional organization the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH) welcomes all responsible discussion and investigation into the important psychological factors surrounding homosexuality. The gay and lesbian task force report just released at the American Psychological Association (APA) convention in Toronto suggests no change in the clearly established APA policy that client self-determination is the crowning principle of all ethical mental health treatment. Respect for religious diversity demands that psychologists and mental health professionals give as much weight to belief as they do to sexual identity.

Homosexual Kiss Protest — List of Locations for ‘Great Nationwide Kiss-in’ Events Saturday

Wednesday, August 12th, 2009

new_hampshire_civil_union_perverted_kiss.jpgWielding perversion like a weapon: most normal people do not want to see two people of the same sex kiss — a “disgust” factor that homosexual activists are counting on to maximize the effect of their “Great Nationwide Kiss-in” this Saturday. How many innocent children will be corrupted by this latest example of selfish “gay” activism?

Folks, this Saturday, August 15th, homosexual activists will be wielding their deviant sexuality like a weapon on the unsuspecting public in locales across the country. Interesting. Somehow I don’t think Blacks — especially those with a strong moral foundation — will see this as a progression of the noble civil rights movement. I’m most concerned about the children who will be exposed to this obnoxious event after their parents unwittingly stumble upon a “kiss-in.” [Click HERE to read Laurie Higgins’ take on the “kiss-in.”]

The following cities and towns have CONFIRMED that they will be holding Great Nationwide Kiss-In Events ( a homosexual kiss-in), as of August 11, 2009. (We have removed the additional contact names and information listed alongside the city or town.) Please pass this information on so that families don’t inadvertently end up at one of these events with their children. — Peter LaBarbera, www.aftah.org:
