PFOX Responds to ‘Gay’ Hate Blogger Wayne Besen’s Threat of Lawsuit against Greg Quinlan

Tuesday, December 13th, 2011

Homosexual militant Wayne Besen of Truth Wins Out harasses a Boston church by screaming into a church window through a megaphone. The church was holding a seminar on overcoming homosexuality. Photo: MassResistance.org.

Folks, the audacity and hypocrisy of wicked homosexual activists — and Wayne Besen is just that — never cease to amaze me. Besen and his comically named “Truth Wins Out” — currently playing the victim — are all about defamation and anti-religious slander. He dehumanizes former homosexuals like PFOX’s Greg Quinlan by effectively claiming that they do not exist. (TWO’s propaganda tactic, which I call “Focus on the Failures,” presumes that all “ex-gays” are frauds because a few went back into the homosexual lifestyle; using such illogic, one could highlight ex-druggies who start abusing their bodies again as “proof” that there is no hope for anyone to leave drug addiction behind.)

The belligerent Besen regularly mocks me as “Porno Pete” — even on Barry Lynn’s live radio program [click HERE to listen] —  and then cries “Defamation!” when a good man like Greg recounts the venom that flows so effortlessly from Besen’s lips. Is it really a stretch to believe that Besen now is lying about the nastiness he hurled at Quinlan because he is embarassed by public exposure of his prodigious hatred? — Peter LaBarbera, www.aftah.org

PFOX Responds to Gay Hate Blogger’s Demands

Greg Quinlan, President of Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays (PFOX), issued the following statement today in response to a press release emailed to PFOX on behalf of Wayne Besen, an anti-ex-gay blogger, from the paradoxically named “Truth Wins Out” (TWO) hate site: The press release referenced a letter signed by militant gay activist attorney Michael B. Hamar and demanded that Quinlan retract factual statements he recently made about Besen on WDCW-TV.

Greg Quinlan

“Once I was able to stop laughing and realized that the letter wasn’t intended to be parody, I thought: Okay; Wayno wants a response to his list of comical demands? Here’s my formal response: Grow up.”

“I’m not sure what law school Mr. Hamar went to, but apparently he missed class on the day his professor covered defamation. You see, truth is an absolute and affirmative defense to a charge of defamation. I know this and I’m not even a lawyer.”

VIDEO: AFTAH Says Obama’s and Hillary’s International ‘Gay Rights’ Push Will Only Alienate Nations Who Reject America’s Moral Corruption

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

TAKE ACTION: Read this WorldNetDaily article featuring AFTAH (reprinted at bottom) and AFTAH’s press release below — and call your elected representatives to urge them to strip out language from the DoD authorization bill that would repeal the military’s existing ban on SODOMY and BESTIALITY (we’re not kidding). The Pentagon bill was just passed overwhelmingly by the Senate.. Call 202-225-3121 for the House and 202-224-3121 for the Senate. Or go to www.Congress.org.

In America, homosexual perversion like this (recast as “gay” identity) is celebrated by liberal eliites. Now the Obama administration wants to promote the normalization of homosexuality to the world. The above graphic is an online ad for an HIV vaccine study involving homosexual men. For decency’s sake, we blocked the male-to-male kiss — which itself would be considered a “homophobic” act by Western “gay” activists who want to expose people to homosexual acts to desensitize them to this aberrant lifestyle.

AFTAH Says Obama’s and Hillary’s International ‘Gay Rights’ Push Will Only Alienate Nations Who Reject America’s Moral Corruption

CHICAGO – Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality, issued the following statement in response to the Obama Administration’s announcement Tuesday of a campaign to link American foreign aid to the promotion of homosexuality-based “rights” abroad [a YouTube of Sec. of State Hillary Clinton’s U.N. speech follows] :

With their new escalation of promoting homosexual behavior to other nations through U.S. foreign policy, President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have raised America’s defiance toward her Creator to a new level — while needlessly alienating nations less morally compromised than our own.  Not content to keep our decadence between our shores, the United States – through aggressively pro-“gay” Democratic administrations – now demands that other countries sink to our level by embracing homosexuality as a “human right.”

Who knew that when President Ronald Reagan spoke idealistically about America becoming a “shining city on the hill,” that city would turn out to be Sodom?  Hillary earned plaudits from the Left with her U.N. speech on international “gay rights,” but her words were an affront to our Declaration of Independence, which appeals to “Nature and Nature’s God.”

By redefining “human rights” to include the normalization of same-sex behaviors and gender confusion, Obama and Clinton have turned God’s natural moral order on its head.  There are many countries – including Muslim-dominated nations and major powers like Russia – that reject homosexuality.  By pushing sexual deviance on these nations, we only confirm their perception of America as a corrupt and declining – and very arrogant — superpower.

America, rooted in the Bible, historically embraced anti-sodomy laws, but now we are in the grip of an unprecedented moral and spiritual crisis that blackens our reputation worldwide.  As one Muslim tweeted in reaction to Obama’s international “gay rights” plan: “There is a great divide between the Founding Fathers and the pro-gay regime ruling America [today].”

Aberrant sexuality is not a fundamental liberty, and defending morality is not hateful “bigotry.”  Hillary claims, “Being gay is not a Western invention, it is a human reality.”  But homosexuality is about changeable behavior – not intrinsic, innate identity – as evidenced by countless men and women who now live happy lives apart from homosexuality, despite once considering themselves “gay” or “lesbian.”

LISTEN: Charges Filed as Oklahoma City Pastor Paul Blair Gets Death Threats after Opposing Pro-Homosexual Ordinance

Tuesday, December 6th, 2011

TV report on death threat delivered by voicemail to Fairview Baptist Church in Oklahoma City, the day after Pastor Paul Blair testified against a proposed pro-homosexual Sexual Orientation meaasure.

Folks, Pastor Paul Blair of Fairview Baptist Church in Edmond, Oklahoma (a suburb of Oklahoma City) is the latest Christian to be targeted for publicly standing against the homosexual activist movement. Tragically, it has now become commonplace for pro-“queer” thugs to target the Church, even as they decry “hate” against homosexuals. The good news is that charges have been filed against David Michael Moxley, for his alleged crime. (In Oklahoma, the reddest state in the Union, hateful and violent threats against Christians are still taken seriously.) You can listen to our cleaned-up selection of Moxley’s creepy phone threats against Pastor Blair and his family by clicking the link below.

Link to online MP3 audio of phone threats: Fairview Baptist,Hate calls,11-16-11 (Abbreviated)

As one who recently spoke at Fairview Baptist, I am honored to call Paul Blair — who in addition to his pastoral duties heads up Reclaiming America For Christ — a friend and co-laborer in the battle for Truth.  Another thing about Paul: even if he were not a retired NFL lineman (he played three years for the Bears) [read his testimony HERE], he would never allow such cowardly actions to intimidate him into silence on the homosexual issue. (Here is Blair’s “rap sheet” by the leftist and badly named “People For the American Way.”) Like him, we must never give in to Secular Left bullying. You can write Paul to thank him for his unwaving defense of the family at [email protected]. — Peter LaBarbera, www.aftah.org

Pastor Blair sent out this informational release following the vulgar and threatening harassment:

To our friends in the Media:

November 16, 2011

From:  Pastor Paul Blair, Fairview Baptist Church/Edmond

Relating to the Oklahoma City Council meeting yesterday and the action taken to include sexual orientation as a protected class, I wanted to make you aware of the threats that I have received here at the church within the last 24 hours.

Pastor Paul Blair

As a pastor, I did not even reference scripture in opposition to this policy.  My points were, first, that the policy was unnecessary because the city and city attorneys clearly stated that there was currently and had not been discrimination based upon sexual orientation.  Second, it was unprecedented in that we would be creating a special class of protection based upon someone’s behavior.  This was not a civil rights issue.  We are not talking about race or gender, but behavior.  And finally, I reminded the council that this was a GLBT effort and to remember the “T”.  With a policy to provide special protection for transgenders, it would be discriminatory to forbid a man from using the ladies shower or restroom in City Buildings.  What about the rights of women?  As you know, the measure passed 7-2.

AFTAH Interviews Professor Ken Howell – Part Two

Saturday, December 3rd, 2011

Prof. Ken Howell

Here is Part Two of our interview with Catholic Prof. Ken Howell, Senior Fellow in the School of Catholic Thought at the John Paul II Newman Center, located at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). Howell was fired and then rehired last year by the University of Illinois (Champaign) after a “friend” of a student complained about an e-mail lesson he wrote on Natural Moral Law and homosexuality. A little known fact arising from the controversy is that Howell is no longer emplyed by the University of Illinois after a long stint there (thus, his liberal detractors were rewarded). In this interview, which aired November 12, 2011, Howell goes deeper into explaining Natural Law. You can listen to Part One HERE.

On World AIDS Day, Let’s Be Honest by Teaching Kids that Male Homosexual Sex is High Risk

Thursday, December 1st, 2011

Homosexual bathhouses like Steamworks promote reckless, anonymous sex to young men. This is a web ad for a "Spring Break" promotion by Steamworks of Chicago. These "gay" perversion centers should be shut down as public health hazards. Click on graphic to enlarge.

Press Release, Americans For Truth, www.AmericansForTruth.org

December 1, 2011

Contact: Peter LaBarbera:[email protected]

CHICAGO—Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH), offered the following common-sense recommendations on “World AIDS Day” (December 1); WARNING: Graphic content:

  • ACKNOWLEDGE HIGH RISK ‘GAY’ SEX: Recognize HIV/AIDS as a predominantly “gay disease” in the USA (as some LGBT leaders like Matt Foreman have admitted) — linked to male homosexual behavior (and IV drug abuse—another high-risk behavior). Gay writer Jack Hart has called gay male sex practices like anal sex “highly efficient ways of transmitting disease.”
  • TEACH KIDS REAL RISKS IN THE CLASSROOM: Stop pretending that all lifestyles are at equal risk for AIDS – because HIV is NOT behaviorally- or lifestyle-neutral. Instead, teach students in school health classes the DOCUMENTED REALITY that certain behaviors, especially male homosexual sex, are particularly high-risk for contracting HIV (and other STDs like hepatitis). See this September 2011 CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) fact sheet, which points out: “MSM [men who have sex with men] account for more than half of all new HIV infections in the United States each year (61%, or an estimated 29,300 infections).”
  • RE-STIGMATIZE DANGEROUS BEHAVIORS: In the wider culture and especially among youth, re-stigmatize anal sex and other (predominantly) homosexual acts (e.g., “rimming,” homosexual slang for oral-anus perversion). If other behaviors were as dangerous as homosexual male sex, there would be well-funded PR campaigns and government mobilizations to curtail them. Political Correctness is no excuse for failing to educate against bad and harmful behaviors.
  • CLOSE DOWN GAY BATHHOUSES: Using whatever means and laws necessary, shut down all “gay” bathhouses (e.g., Steamworks in Chicago, and Flex Baths in Cleveland). These anonymous sex clubs facilitate unnatural and deviant, disease-spreading sex. Moreover, because they are used by bisexual men and those on the “down low” (homosexuality-practicing men who do not identify as “gay”), bathhouses help spread AIDS to innocent women. For the record, AFTAH also supports citizen action against heterosexual swinger clubs as well as strip clubs and pornographic video stores, which promote promiscuity and undermine natural marriage.
