Pro-‘Gay’ Liberals Dare Not Discuss This … Homosexual Health Risks

Friday, February 24th, 2012

Dear AFTAH Supporter,

Homosexual activists are giving Americans For Truth and yours truly an extra dose of venom beyond their usual hatred and ridicule for posting an article by a medical trascriptionist about male homosexual health risks — with a photo of anal warts (yes, it’s offensive: see online story with photo HERE).  There are two things “gay” activists NEVER want to talk about (or hear anyone else talk about, especially the media):
  1. Former “Gays”…That there are lots of happy EX-homosexual men (like DL Foster); EX-lesbians (like Linda Jernigan and Yvette Schneider); and even EX-transsexuals (like Walt Heyer) who have overcome sexual/gender confusion and troubled circumstances in their own lives — usually through a relationship with Jesus Christ; and 
  2. Unhealthy Behavior….The multiple health risks associated with homosexual behavior — which occur at vastly disproportionate rates relative to the rest of society.  Naturally, practicing perversion is harmful to one’s body (and soul).

Of course, the medical transcriptionist story deals with #2.  I was contacted by a medical transcriptionist, who couldn’t help but take notice of the many maladies contracted by male homosexual patients, whose records she was typing.  Keep in mind that young people are RARELY IF EVER taught or told about the massive health risks associated with homosexual behavior — e.g., the CDC’s report that61 percent of all new HIV cases involve “men who have sex with men.”

I recently had the opportunity to debate a homosexual activist at a Naperville, Illinois, high school — where I mentioned the enormous “gay” health risks.  A male student came up to me after my talk, incredulous about the CDC’s “61 percent” figure above for homosexual men and AIDS.  He asked me how he could verify this information; I told him to go to the CDC website.  I could see that it really got him thinking.  (Who knows?  Maybe it will help deter him from embracing a destructive homosexual identity.)  Today’s youth — like this young man — are starved for basic facts like this; we must find ways to reach them with accurate information!

Hard Truths: Homosexuality-related diseases and dangers is not an easy subject to discuss, but discuss it we must. (Note the obvious connection between Epididymitis and homo-sexually deviant acts in the AFTAH article.)  One of the reasons that the “gay” side currently has all the momentum is that conservatives have not done a good job of telling the HARD TRUTHS about homosexuality.  (Of course, many people are intimidated and simply afraid to criticize “gayness” or the radical homosexual agenda at all due to Political Correctness.)

That’s where AFTAH comes in: we are stepping up our efforts to tell the uncomfortable facts and tragic realities about homosexual behavior and its intolerant and extreme activist-defenders.  Please help us do so today with your gift to AFTAH — online at; or via regular mail: AFTAH, PO Box 5522, Naperville, IL 60567-5522.  Please give me your feedback, and God bless. — Peter LaBarbera,; e-mail:

AFTAH Interviews Pro-Family Warrior Jim Finnegan – Part One

Tuesday, February 21st, 2012

Pro-life/pro-family advocate Jim Finnegan has fought long and hard in Illinois for "Choose Life" specialty license plates, which would raise funds for adoption. Democratic politicians, influenced by pro-abortion lobbyists, have stalled the plates for years.

This is Part One of AFTAH’s interview [listen HERE] with Jim Finnegan, a longtime pro-life and pro-family Catholic advocate in the Chicago area who is active with Defend Marriage Illinois. Finnegan is also leading the campaign for “Choose Life” specialty license plates in Illinois — thwarted for years by liberal Democrats. This interview was pre-recorded and aired February 18, 2012. Finnegan and AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera discuss the radical group Gay Liberation Network’s ongoing attacks on Cardinal Francis George, due to George’s and the Catholic Church’s opposition to homosexual “marriage” and homosexual acts.

LaBarbera describes the GLN’s hateful protest Feb. 12, 2012, directly in front of Chicago’s Holy Name Cathedral, with signs mocking George as “Archbigot.” He also notes GLN’s refusal to condemn a pro-homosexual brick attack against a Christian school hosting AFTAH’s October 2011 banquet — and says that if he had refused to condemn such an assault on a homosexual group he would legitimately be called a “hater.” (See AFTAH report on GLN’s record of hate HERE.) Both men discuss a newly introduced “same-sex marriage” bill [more info HERE] introduced by three openly homosexual Illinois legislators — and how House Speaker Mike Madigan (himself a “Catholic”) has blocked pro-family bills in Springfield while allowing pro-homosexual bills to be considered.

Mike Heath Confronts ‘Sodomy-based Marriage’ in Maine

Tuesday, February 21st, 2012

Woman Strongly Disagrees During Heath Sermon and Walks Out

Mike Heath (left) and his wife, Paulie, with American Family Association founder Don Wildmon. This photo was taken in 2010.

Mike Heath is my good friend and the former Board Chairman of Americans For Truth. He’s also the former Executive Director (1994–2009) of the Christian Civic League of Maine — which, I might add, has become decidedly less boldly “Christian” — and less principled — with the departure of Mike and his talented staff a few years back. (That’s a long and fascinating story, but it needs to be told because it says a lot about what ails the presumptively “Christian pro-family movement” [quotes necessary].)

Anyway, Mike Heath [see website HERE] is also a heckuva good guy who — now that he is free of the burdens of “pro-family movement” politics (quotes necessary) — is more apt to tell it like it is than he was before. That’s saying something, because Mike was usually more honest about what’s at stake in the “Culture War” over homosexuality than most pro-family and conservative leaders, who are — I’ll just say it — pretty much intimidated, out-gunned and out-organized by the Homosexual Lobby and at a loss for how to stop it. (See this New England homosexual lobby group’s website to get an idea of what we are up against.)

I don’t necessarily share Mike’s views on the potential that come November Mainers will likely vote for “sodomy-based marriage,” as he calls it (Mike doesn’t fret about style like so many Chistians these days). But the fact that it is even a possibility speaks to the failed “pro-family” strategy of NOT focusing on Homosexuality in the battle over, yes, Homosexual so-called “Marriage.”

Elephant in the room? What elephant in the room?!

Medical Records Reveal Diseases and Maladies Associated with ‘Gay’ Sex and Homosexual Behavior

Sunday, February 19th, 2012

Penile lesions, anal warts, anal tearing, epididymitis, gay-on-gay violence found in records

Special to Americas For Truth About Homosexuality

Editor’s Note: each of the cases Ms. Melton describes were identified by physicians as homosexual males for the medical transcriptions for which she was responsible.

By Lara Melton†

Anal warts: just one of the many maladies for which men practicing homosexual sex are at higher risk relative to the general population.

It’s heartbreaking at times being a medical transcriptionist, typing the medical and psychiatric illnesses of those admitted to hospitals, emergency rooms, mental health units and seen in clinics. People’s pain is what we see every day. Many can be cured, many can’t. Many are in pain or have illness because of lifestyle choices or practices that they will not change. That may be their “right,” but those choices unfortunately have a ripple effect to those around them.

In my 20-plus years typing acute care medical records, at times I have almost ceased to be shocked at what I see. At other times, I continue to be shocked. For those who don’t know what a medical transcriptionist does: Every patient who is admitted to a hospital, seen in an emergency department, or seen by a doctor in a clinic, has a medical chart with the summary of each visit dictated by a physician and transcribed by a medical transcriptionist.

The hospital records consist of documentation which includes a history and physical examination summarizing the patient’s chief complaint, history of the present illness, past medical history, family history, social history, review of systems (what the patient has complaints about throughout their whole body from head to toe not necessarily related to the chief complaint), physical examination (what the doctor’s own findings are on a head to toe exam),  laboratory work; the doctor’s impression or diagnosis that he/she determines from the data gathered and his/her plan or recommendation.

Similarly, there are consultations, operative reports (transcription of the surgical procedure), discharge summaries describing the patient’s hospital course and condition on discharge, psychiatric reports, emergency department reports, radiology reports and a myriad of diagnostic and lab procedures that are transcribed. With that history, you can imagine what truths medical transcriptionists are exposed to.

What disturbs me most is the extreme disconnect between what you hear and see in media and in movies, and what children are taught in schools, and what real-life, indisputable medical reports prove.  For purposes of this article, we’ll deal with the horrifying physical and emotional maladies and domestic abuse that takes place amongst practicing homosexuals. These patients are seen in all aspects of hospital care including emergency rooms, mental health units, rehabilitation (Physical Therapy/Occupational Therapy[PT/OT]) units, surgery and clinics.

Homosexual ‘Marriage’ Legislative Round-up

Friday, February 17th, 2012

Greg Quinlan

Here is a concise summary of what is happening with homosexual “marriage” legislation in various states, from our friend and stellar pro-family activist (and PFOX President) Greg Quinlan. Greg is also a lobbyist with the New Jersey Family Policy Council. You can listen to these AFTAH radio interviews with Quinlan, a former homosexual and one-time “gay” activist: Part One; Part Two; and Part Three.

On Monday, the New Jersey Senate voted 24-16 to corrupt the definition of marriage to include homosexual couples. Many called it a civil right. Homosexuality is NOT a civil right. It simply does not measure up to the criteria of a civil right.

Thursday (today) the Democrat-controlled New Jersey Assembly (lower Chamber) voted. There was a slim chance that it would not get the required 41 votes for passage. [But the “same-sex marriage” bill passed the  by a vote of 42-33; New Jersey governor Chris Christie has vowed to veto the bill.]

Please pray for us and that the elected officials nationwide will do the right thing. And that the Lord God will accomplish His will any way He sees fit. May HE have mercy on this state, and this nation, which seems to have forgotten Him.

Please pray for the other states facing the lie of homosexual “marriage.” A bill has just been introduced in Illinois to legalize counterfeit “gay marriage.’ It is mischievously titled the “Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act.” Maryland is under a more imminent threat of homosexual “marriage” as well as a bill that would enable transsexual, cross-dressing men to use the restrooms of women and young girls. INSANITY.

Hateful Homosexual Protesters Slam Cardinal George as ‘Archbigot’ at Sunday Morning Church Protest

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

AFTAH in the News: real ‘hate’ comes from ‘Gay Liberation Network’

Gay Liberation Network protester marches with sign smearing Chicago Card. Francis George as an "Archbigot" -- in Sunday morning protest directly in front of Holy Name Cathedral in Chicago. Homosexual activists are pushing hard for legalizing homosexual "marriage" in Illinois. Click on photo to enlarge. PHOTO: Americans For Truth

TAKE ACTION: Illinois Residents: call your state representative and senator (; 217-782-2000) and urge them to OPPOSE the “same-sex marriage” bill, HB 5170, that was just introduced by three openly homosexual lawmakers in Springfield. (Also, ask them to REPEAL the “Civil Unions” bill passed enacted last year.) The Civil Unions law quickly became a tool of anti-religious oppression against Christians, and now it is revealed as a mere stepping-stone for the Homosexual Lobby’s real goal: the revolutionary redefinition of marriage — using the State to advance the absurd idea that sinful “unions” based on (changeable) homosexuality should be awarded equal status with natural marriage.

Religious Freedom? Also please note the audacity of liberals calling the new bill the “Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act” — similar to their artful name for the Civil Unions bill — even though both legal “civil unions” and “gay marriage” would force employers to subsidize immoral homosexual relationships (the very antithesis of “religious liberty”).


Dear AFTAH Supporter,

Click on the photo above right to enlarge it.  How would you like to have to walk past THIS to get into church Sunday morning?  I was there to witness Gay Liberation Network protesters marching directly in front of Holy Name Cathedral in downtown Chicago on Sunday morning (Feb. 12, 2012) during the main church service. (At least two GLN signs smeared Cardinal Francis George as “Arch-bigot”; one showed his photo and mocked: “Archbigot of Chicago… is intrinsically disordered + needs reparative therapy.”)

A Few Examples of the Gay Liberation Network’s Hate and Intolerance

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

Gay Liberation Network protesters gather after Sunday's picket in front of Holy Name Cathedral in Chicago. Note the signs calling Cardinal Francis George an "Archbigot" and asking Catholics to "Give up Hate for Lent." GLN leader Andy Thayer is at left.

Americans For Truth president Peter LaBarbera passed out a version of the following in printed flier  format Sunday morning (February 12, 2012) at the Gay Liberation Network’s picket against Chicago Cardinal Francis George. The GLN picket was allowed to take place directly in front of Holy Name Cathedral in downtown Chicago, during the main morning Mass. AFTAH will add more examples of the GLN’s extreme and vicious record in the months ahead:


A  Few Examples of the Gay Liberation Network’s Hate

Compiled by Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (;

The Gay Liberation Network (GLN), based in Chicago, is so extreme and hateful that it makes most other pro-homosexual organizations almost seem restrained by comparison. Here is just a sampling of GLN’s record:

  • GLN regularly smears Cardinal Francis George, Moody Church Pastor Erwin Lutzer and other religious leaders as ”haters” and “bigots” because they oppose homosexual behavior according to their church’s teachings;
  • Gay Liberation Network leader Bob Schwartz explicitly refused to publicly condemn the Oct. 15, 2011 pro-homosexual brick attack on Christian Liberty Academy – which occurred the morning of the day that CLA was scheduled to host a banquet for Americans For Truth. Schwartz wrote on a pro-homosexuality website (Box Turtle Bulletin):

“[Gay Liberation Network] did not, and will not condemn the actions of persons who threw the [paver bricks], assuming that they did so out of hatred of [pro-family advocate Scott] Lively, [AFTAH President Peter] LaBarbera, and the Christian Liberty Academy.”

  • GLN publicly applauded University of Illinois for firing Catholic professor Kenneth Howell (who was terminated and then temporarily rehired after a student complained about an instructional e-mail he had sent out explaining Catholic doctrine and Natural Moral Law). Schwartz sent the following e-mail to Americans For Truth regarding Howell:

From: [Bob Schwartz, Gay Liberation Network]
Date: Tues, 13 Jul 2010 20:55:16 -0400
To: <>
Subject: Kenneth Howell

Just a note to advise you that I asked the new U of I president to support the termination of antigay bigot “natural law” [Prof. Kenneth] Howell.

AFTAH Interview with Pastor Patrick Wooden – Part Five – Discusses NAACP, Al Sharpton and Obama Backing ‘Gay’ Agenda

Monday, February 13th, 2012

Slams Al Sharpton for endorsing “gay marriage,” says Obama’s promotion of homosexualist agenda shows he “is not a Christian”

North Carolina pastor Patrick Wooden is interviewed by a local TV reporter in Montgomery, Alabama, following AFTAH’s press conference last month condemning the Southern Poverty Law Center leftist “hate” campaign against AFTAH and other pro-family groups.

This is the fifth and final part of our interview with Patrick Wooden [click HERE to listen], pastor of Upper Room Church of God in Christ, in Raleigh, NC. This was pre-recorded and aired Feb. 11, 2012. Wooden criticizes Rev. Al Sharpton for endorsing same-sex “marriage” [Sharpton’s pro-homosexual-“marriage” statement for the “gay” lobby group Human Rights Campaign is played on air]. “Al disagrees with the God of the Bible,” says Wooden. He also chides NAACP President Ben Jealous for speaking at the annual conference of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force (NGLTF)– a leftist organization that supports “polyamory,” sadomasochism, radical transgenderism, and other assorted perversions. Moreover, Wooden says Rev. William Barber, President of NAACP-North Carolina, is wrong for pledging to fight against North Carolina’s pro-traditional-marriage constitutional amendment, to be voted on in May. (Jealous recalls how Barber told him to “make sure that that [NGLTF] crowd knows that we are doing everything we can to stop that silly amendment from becoming law.”)

After AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera notes that President Barack Obama is the most pro-homosexuality president in American history, Wooden says that demonstrates that Obama “is not a Christian,” despite his public profession. In an interesting section toward the end of the interview, Wooden explains why African Americans are perhaps more opposed to homosexual perversion than whites. He also recalls how Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. thought of homosexual attraction not as an innocuous, “innate tendency,” but as a culturally-acquired, unnatural problem that can and should be resolved.
