AFTAH to Coulter: Donate Your GOProud Speaking Fee to Pro-Family Groups

Thursday, August 19th, 2010

Conservative pundit lashes out at WND’s Farah as “swine” after Farah drops Coulter as speaker

Ann Coulter is the keynote speaker at "Homocon," a party put on by GOProud, a homosexual activist group for "gay" Republicans.

Ann Coulter is angry at WorldNetDaily publisher Joseph Farah and called him a “swine” because Farah and WND dropped Coulter from speaking at their upcoming “Taking America Back” conference in Miami [conference info HERE]– due to Coulter’s speaking appearance at GOProud’s “Homocon” party for “conservative” homosexuals in September. (See AFTAH’s original press release urging Coulter to reconsider her GOProud speech HERE.)

Coulter’s is a baseless charge to level at Farah — who showed his commitment to conservative principles by dropping Coulter. But what’s odd is that it comes after Coulter admitted to Farah that she’s doing the GOProud speech pretty much for the money (i.e., as just another speaking gig). See her rationale as relayed to WND HERE.

We at AFTAH have an idea: how about if Coulter donates her GOProud speaking fee to two worthy pro-family organizations whose mission (we hope) Coulter agrees with more than that of the phony “conservatives” over at GOProud, who put “gay rights” above traditional values. Here are two wonderful groups that could benefit from GOProud’s cash (via Coulter):

  • Elaine Donnelly’s Center for Military Readiness, which has led the way in battling President Obama’s reckless plan to homosexualize the U.S. military in a time of war (GOProud supports the Democrat-led effort to repeal the ban on open homosexuals in the military);
  • Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays (PFOX) — this worthy yet perpetually underfunded organization stands up for the rights of former homosexuals — who regularly get demonized and sometimes bullied by the supposedly “tolerant” Homosexual Activist Lobby.

Why Glenn Beck Is Wrong — Legalizing Homosexual ‘Marriage’ Will Destroy Freedom

Tuesday, August 17th, 2010

TAKE ACTION: You can write to talk show host Glenn Beck at [email protected]  or contact him through his program’s website HERE.

EDUCATE YOURSELF: Read the awful Proposition 8 decision by homosexual Judge Vaughn Walker HERE, and read about how New Mexico Christian photographer Elaine Huguenin was victimized by lesbian activists HERE.

By Peter LaBarbera, www.aftah.org

Below is a YouTube of Glenn Beck’s recent appearance on FOX News’ Bill O’Reilly’s show — in the wake of a judge striking down Prop 8 in California as unconstitutional. Beck dismissed homosexual “marriage” as not being a serious national threat to America [our response to Beck follows the video and the jump]:

Here are some reasons why Glenn Beck is not just wrong — but has it completely backwards regarding the escalating threat that homosexual activism, culminating in court-imposed “gay marriage,” poses to America’s children and our First Amendment liberties:

1) Just as reported homosexual Judge Vaughn Walker overruled the expressed will of California voters (twice expressed) against “same-sex marriage,” federalized homosexual “marriage” would override the documented will of the people in the 31 states that have already voted — some by huge margins — to preserve marriage in the law as what it is: between one man and one woman.

VIDEO: Glenn Beck Is Wrong on the Importance of Homosexual ‘Marriage’

Saturday, August 14th, 2010

Looks like Glenn Beck could have benefited from attending the AFTAH Truth Academy [order DVDs or CDs of the Academy HERE; order online through AFTAH’s donate page]. Beck is doing incredibly important work in helping to save America from the misnamed “progressives” — but evidently he is woefully ignorant about the real threat that homosexual activism poses to this nation and our precious freedoms. Memo: to Glenn: people of faith — like Matt Barber and Julea Wardalready have been fired or discriminated against for defending the historic Judeo-Christian sexual ethic. And this began happening before “same-sex marriage” became the dominant issue in this cultural debate. The oppression will only get worse if homosexual “marriage” is legalized nationally through an activist court ruling. Thanks to Lynn Thomas of Cao’s Blog for creating this video. — Peter LaBarbera, www.aftah.org [Partial transcription of exchange follows video]:

In the interview with FOX News’ Bill O’Reilly, Beck said that he does not think the government “has anything to do with marriage. That is a religious rite.”

From the segment:

O’Reilly: Do you believe that gay marriage is a threat to country in any way?

Beck: A threat to the country?

O’Reilly: Yeah, is it going to harm it in anyway?

Beck: No I don’t. Will the gays come and get us?

O’Reilly: No, okay. Is it going to harm the country?

Beck: I believe that Thomas Jefferson said: “If it neither breaks my leg nor picks my pocket what difference is it to me?

LaBarbera to Ann Coulter: Reconsider Appearance at Event for GOProud — Phony ‘Gay Conservatives’

Tuesday, August 10th, 2010

Would Ann Coulter speak at an event for “Republicans For Responsible Porn Use,” or “Republicans for Higher Taxes,” or Republicans for Choice (Abortion) -- if such groups took legitimately conservative positions on other issues like gun rights?

CHICAGO — Americans For Truth About Homosexuality President Peter LaBarbera today urged conservative pundit Ann Coulter to reconsider her appearance at “Homocon,” a September event for the homosexual Republican group GOProud

LaBarbera said: 

As a fan of Ann Coulter, it pains me to see her cave in to political correctness and lend credibility to the phony homosexual “conservatives” over at GOProud. Worse, Coulter is sending a dangerous message to young Americans that homosexuality is OK. (It’s actually a sin.) Fully half of GOProud’s top 10 federal priorities center on using the Government to advance homosexuality, including: 

#4 – “Repealing ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’” – Homosexualizing the military is reckless, especially in wartime. GOProud claims to defend “individual liberty,” but what about the privacy rights of normal soldiers who don’t want to bunk and shower with men who lust after other men? Moreover, if DADT is repealed, the military will become a massive government bureaucracy for pro-homosexual “diversity” – subjecting millions of tradition-minded servicemen to Orwellian, same-sex propaganda to enforce its new lavender crusade. (Chaplains: beware.) 

# 7 – “Opposing any anti-gay federal marriage amendment.” Coulter must know that America might be just one Supreme Court justice away from legalizing oxymoronic homosexual “marriage” – which would undermine religious freedom in every state in the nation. A Federal Marriage Amendment could be the only way to stop this Roe v. Wade-like disaster. And since when did state-enforced homosexual “marriage” – with its corrosive effect on liberty and linkage to Homosexuality Promotion in schools — become “conservative”?

Liberty Counsel Chides ADF for Poorly Defending Prop 8

Monday, August 9th, 2010

Even (homosexual) U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker noted the inadequate defense of Proposition 8, Liberty Counsel reported.

The following press release was sent out August 4, 2010, by Christian legal defense group Liberty Counsel:

California Judge Strikes Down Prop 8 Marriage Amendment

San Francisco, CA – Today U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker ruled in Perry v. Schwarzenegger that Proposition 8, defining marriage as the union of one woman and one man in the California Constitution, violates the U.S. Constitution. Every court until today has rejected the argument that there is a “right” to same-sex marriage under the U.S. Constitution. In November 2008, California voters amended their state constitution by passing Prop 8, and the California Supreme Court upheld the marriage amendment.

Although Liberty Counsel has defended the marriage laws in California since the battle began in 2004, the Alliance Defense Fund, representing the Prop 8 initiative, opposed Liberty Counsel’s attempt to intervene on behalf of Campaign for California Families. The California Attorney General did not oppose Liberty Counsel’s intervention, but ADF did. Liberty Counsel sought to provide additional defense to Prop 8 because of concern that the case was not being adequately defended. After ADF actively opposed Liberty Counsel, ADF presented only two witnesses at trial, following the 15 witnesses presented by those who challenged the amendment. Even Judge Walker commented that he was concerned by the lack of evidence presented by ADF on behalf of Prop 8. Liberty Counsel will file an amicus brief at the court of appeals in defense of Prop 8.

VIDEOS: Hate Abounds in Gay Liberation Network Protest against AFTAH Truth Academy

Monday, August 9th, 2010

GLN leader says hopefully that Academy instructor Cliff Kincaid “could get hit by a car”

The following is video of the August 5 protest against the AFTAH Truth Academy by a coalition of pro-homosexuality groups led by the Marxist Gay Liberation Network. The Chicago-based GLN attempted to smear the Truth Academy as “teaching hate,” but the real hate came from some of the protesters — not Truth Academy instructors like Ryan Sorba (featured prominently in this video). Several Academy presenters including Matt Barber, Greg Quinlan and AFTAH founder Peter LaBarbera joined Sorba in wading into the crowd, engaging various protesters on the question of “hate.” The first video below was shot by Illinois conservative Lynn Thomas, creator of Cao’s Blog, and Janet Aldrich [a second YouTube follows the jump]:

Inaugural Truth Academy Tremendous Success – Others Planned

Saturday, August 7th, 2010

Angry GLN protest greets debut Academy; speakers answer hate with kind words

Arlington Heights, IL –  On Thursday, Americans for Truth about Homosexuality launched its first of many comprehensive “Truth Academies” to be held at various locations around the United States.  Organizers hoped to fill the event’s classroom  – hosted at Christian Liberty Academy in Arlington Heights, IL – with at least 50 students. This goal was met and surpassed as approximately 70 registrants have already attended some or all of the lectures.

(Homosexualist propagandist Wayne Besen – relying on a paid “spy” sent to the Academy – incorrectly gave the number of attendees at 20-30 people. The “spy,” who said he was a friend of Besen, admitted that he had underestimated the attendance, and said he would ask Besen to correct the errant figure. AFTAH will be waiting for a public correction.)

The Truth Academy brought together pro-family experts from across the nation for the three-day seminar, and was designed to train Americans both young and old how to answer radical “gay” activist disinformation and fight the extremist homosexual-bisexual-transsexual agenda.

Feedback from Academy attendees has been overwhelmingly positive as many students were amazed to learn of the profound gulf between homosexual activist propaganda and reality. Two former homosexuals gave their testimony of healthy change at the Academy.

Not everyone, however, was pleased that the radical “gay” agenda is – and will continue to be – so roundly discredited and exposed. A Thursday protest in front of Christian Liberty Academy – organized by the Chicago-based “Gay Liberation Network” or GLN, an admittedly Marxist organization steeped in anti-Christian hate, attracted an estimated 70 protesters, according to a CNN producer covering the conference.
