LISTEN: AFTAH’s LaBarbera Discusses Azusa Pacific U’s LGBTQ Sellout with Janet Mefferd – UPDATE: APU Reverses Decision and Returns to Biblical Prohibition

Friday, September 28th, 2018

UPDATE: After receiving considerable criticism, Azusa-Pacific U. in late September reversed course and reinstated its ban on LGBTQ (homosexual) relationships. We commend the Board of Directors for correcting this unbiblical error: https://zunews.com/2018/09/azusa-pacific-reinstates-ban-lgbtq-relationships/

ORIGINAL AFTAH POST 9-28-18:

Below is the link to my Sept. 27, 2018 interview with Christian talk radio show Janet Mefferd. Or you can go to the  program’s SoundCloud link HERE. We discussed the shocking capitulation by Azusa Pacific University to the emerging “gay Christian” agenda. Yes, it’s a political and ideological agenda, not a mere theological disagreement within Christendom.

There is zero, no, nada justification in the Bible for recognizing and affirming “sexual minorities” within the Church based on sinful inclinations or behavior. If there were, why stop at those tempted by homosexual sin?

That said, of course we reach out in love to repentant sexual strugglers, homosexual and otherwise, but that is a far cry from celebrating “LGBTQ pride,” or affirming unnatural “gay,” bi, trans, “pansexual” or [__INSERT YOUR PET PERVERSION HERE__] identities in God’s name. That is folly and dishonors Christ.

I take my hat off to Janet Mefferd for leading Christian media efforts to expose and confront the campaign–far more advanced than most evangelicals realize–to “homosexualize” the Christian Church. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

Thursday, September 27th, 2018

Here is a Sept. 25, 2018 interview I did with fearless Christian pro-family warrior, Gordon James (“Chaps”) Klingenschmitt, founder of Pray in Jesus Name Ministries. Here is what we covered:

  • New ‘Revoice’ Heresy wants ‘Gay’ minorities in Church. Christian Azusa Pacific University officially recognizes “gay students” group.
  • Peter LaBarbera explains why Bert and Ernie are not “gay.”
  • LGBT complainers, including Adam Flanders. shut down AFTAH’s website, while Facebook “jails” me for for 30 days because I criticized homosexual perversion and LGBTQ activism.

Sen. Lindsey Graham’s Speech Defending Supreme Court Nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh

Thursday, September 27th, 2018

Sen. Lindsey Graham: “Are you a gang rapist?”

Judge Brett Kavanaugh: “No.” 

Folks, I can’t watch this clip enough, from today’s U.S. Senate hearing on the dubious and grotesque sexual assault accusations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Well done, Sen. Graham! By the way, in a small way I can relate to Kavanaugh’s ordeal, because for more than two decades I have been falsely and sometimes viciously accused of sexual misbehavior by lying “progressives.” In my case, it’s the demented smear from “gay” militants like Wayne Besen (former spokesman for the Human Wrongs Rights Campaign) that I’m secretly homosexual–or a fan of “gay” porn–because I fight the radical LGBTQ Lobby and expose their perversions. For hardened leftists, the end justifies the means. No matter if they cruelly slander opponents in the process. We cannot succumb to their lies. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

VCY America Interviews LaBarbera on Adam Flanders’ Web Bullying, Bert & Ernie as ‘Gay Couple,’ and LGBTQ Agenda

Tuesday, September 25th, 2018

“Gay” Activism Corrupts EVERYTHING: A homosexual Hollywood writer declared that Sesame Street characters Bert and Ernie were a “gay” couple–a claim that was quickly shot down by the show’s creators. AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera said LGBTQ activists’ penchant for infusing all facets of life with homosexuality is driven by their need to rationalize their own sinful, unnatural lifestyle. Graphic taken from Sesame Street website video.

The following is a description provided by Milwaukee-based Christian radio station VCY America of their September 19, 2018 radio interview with AFTAH’s Peter LaBarbera. Click HERE to listen on MP3. Hosting for VCY is my friend Jim Schneider. We appreciate VCY’s consistently capable and vigilant coverage of this agenda over the years. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

Pro-Morality Organization Censored While LGBT Agenda Promoted

Posted on September 19th, 2018

​Date:       September 19, 2018

Host:        Jim Schneider
Guest:      Peter LaBarbera​
​Listen:     MP3 ​​​| Order​​

For the full story on the antics of homosexual activist, convicted sex offender and web bully Adam Flanders, go HERE.

Peter LaBarbera is the founder and president of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality, a non-partisan, non-profit group dedicated to exposing the homosexual-bisexual-transgender activist agendas.

Peter’s organization has become a victim of censorship and intolerance. The story involves a homosexual activist/convicted sex offender [Adam Flanders] who’s on the sex offender registry list in 2 states. In 3 of Peter’s website stories they had a picture of this man’s mug shot from one of his arrests. He didn’t want that photo to be seen, so Peter noted that this individual sends threatening letters to anyone who publishes things like that, while claiming that his privacy is being violated.

This individual contacted the Internet service provider and communicated that his mug shot is a copyrighted picture. The ISP [FirstLight Fiber] wrote to Peter’s web host and gave them 5 days to take the picture down. The next day, Peter’s entire website was taken down because his web host said this is a specious claim and they refused to take the picture down.

HostGator Shutdown of ‘AFTAH Censored’ Site Continues – Also Closes Down MassResistance Site after Adam Flanders Complaint

Saturday, September 22nd, 2018

Censored, Indeed: Visitors to AFTAH’s temporary “Censored” site, www.AmericansForTruthCensored.com, will get this “503 Service Temporarily Unavailable” notice. The site was shut down by HostGator following a spurious abuse complaint threat by homosexual activist and convicted sex offender Adam Flanders.

The web hosting company HostGator continues to block the website of AmericansForTruthCensored.com, which was created after the gay-activist-inspired takedown of the main AFTAH site August 24.

The temporary AFTAH “Censored” site was taken offline by HostGator following an “abuse” complaint by Adam Flanders, homosexual activist and convicted sex offender (“Sexual Abuse of a Minor”), whose email activism led to the shutdown of the main Americans For Truth site. Flanders is listed on the sex offender registry list in Maine and California. For more information on Flanders, go HERE.

HostGator Caves Again: The above graphic is what a web click for MassResistance.org yielded last week after HostGator took down the organization’s  website. HostGator was merely capitulating again to a deceitful “abuse” complaint by convicted sex offender Adam Flanders. MR quickly was reinstated through another web host company; go HERE. Flanders has been waging e-war against MassResistance for years.

Meanwhile, last week another Flanders complaint led HostGator to take down the website of MassResistance, a leading pro-family organization fighting LGBTQ activism. Over the years, Flanders has lost repeated battles with MR regarding content pertaining to him on their site that he wanted removed.

The MR site is now being hosted by Jared Heath’s company, Altha Technology. Heath hosts the main Americans For Truth site that was taken down for more than two weeks after Flanders targeted AFTAH for three separate posts that published his mugshot photo from an assault charge in Maine. He claimed the mugshot photo below was “copyrighted.”

After Flanders appealed to ISP (Internet Service Provider) FirstLight Fiber, with which Heath and Altha Tech. had a contract, the corporation suddenly closed down AFTAH’s entire website.

Flanders is attempting to raise funds for a legal fund “because of the anti-lgbt hate groups targeting me.” Yet he has not responded to a request from Americans For Truth President Peter LaBarbera to publicly and privately apologize to Christian singer and songwriter Paulie Heath, who he cruelly mocked in a wicked graphic distorting her face (see below). See also the LifeSiteNews article on Flanders’ harassment campaign against AFTAH.

E-Bully? Adam Flanders has been waging an e-war of fraudulent web “abuse” complaints against AFTAH and other pro-family groups. He absurdly claims that the above mugshot from a 2006 assault arrest in Maine is his own “copyrighted” property.

No Apologies for Hate: Adam Flanders has not responded to AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera’s call to publicly and privately apologize to Christian singer Paulie Heath (left), whose visage he viciously distorted in 2005 by creating the evil graphic at right. The same Flanders now tweets against “bullying” and “hate.”

Catholic Action League Blasts Boston City Council Vote on Question 3 – Transgender Law’s ‘Incitement’ Provision Could Threaten Free Speech

Wednesday, September 19th, 2018

News Release, Sept. 19, 2018

Catholic Action League Criticizes Boston City Council Vote on Question 3

The Catholic Action League of Massachusetts is criticizing the Boston City Council for its resolution, passed earlier today, urging a yes vote on Question 3, which would uphold a 2016 act making so-called gender identity a protected category in Massachusetts civil rights law pertaining to public accommodations.

In July, 2016, Governor Charlie Baker signed into law Senate Bill 2407, An Act Relative to Transgender Anti-Discrimination. The law authorizes the Commonwealth to prosecute, fine and imprison businessmen and professionals who refuse to recognize men who claim to be women as women and women who claim to be men as men. According to the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination and Attorney General Maura Healey, the law could, in some circumstances, apply to churches. Under the provisions of Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 272, Section 98, which prohibits “incitement” to discrimination, freedom of expression could also be restricted.

Question 3 is a referendum on the repeal of the measure.

The Catholic Action League called the City Council resolution “a triumph of progressivist ideology over common sense, moral sanity, and biological reality.”

Catholic Action League Executive Director C. J. Doyle made the following comment: “SB 2407 is a coercive and punitive measure which imposes sanctions on citizens who refuse to participate in the lie that persons can, through some subjective process, change their gender. Contrary to the assertions of Councilor Ayanna Pressley, adhering to the perennial wisdom of Western Civilization—reflected in science, legal tradition, and moral understanding—that gender is immutable, does not constitute hatred, and should not be penalized as discrimination. By today’s vote, the Boston City Council has demonstrated, once again, that it prefers pandering to policy making.”

Robert Oscar Lopez: Christians Who Oppose Ex-Gay Therapy Need a Reality Check

Tuesday, September 18th, 2018

Robert Oscar Lopez. See his other articles on American Thinker. Also see his blog English Manif.

“The gay movement is trying to ban homosexuals from getting help so they can turn toward heterosexuality.”–Robert Oscar Lopez

Folks, Robert Oscar Lopez is a brilliant and original thinker who is unafraid to go where many other Christians and conservatives will not, taking on emerging “political correctness” on homosexuality within the Body of Christ. Here Lopez deals with Christian leaders who condemn ex-“gay” therapy (he uses “conversion therapy,” a term we avoid since it has been politicized by Big LGBTQ), and the bad effect this has on homosexual strugglers who truly want to “pursue intimacy with the opposite sex.” Which is to say: they do not want to retain any kind of same-sex identity, the maintenance of which, as supposed “gay Christians,” is all the rage these days in some Christian circles (see the “Revoice” controversy). Visit Lopez’s blog, English Manif, and keep coming back; you will not be disappointed.  — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH.org; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

Christians Who Oppose Conversion Therapy Need a Reality Check

By Robert Oscar Lopez

This article first appeared in American Thinker, Sept. 13, 2018

To be loving does not mean to be gullible.  Jesus Christ mentions that we will come across dishonest people, especially among those who have prestige (or are seeking it).  We should love people, but that does not mean we should let them take advantage of us.  Or fool us.  Or trick us.

In that spirit, I want Rosaria Butterfield, Sam Allberry, and Jackie Hill Perry to answer a simple yes-or-no question.  No long filibustering paragraphs.  No detours into extensive complaints about what other Christians are supposedly doing.  No lifeline block-quotes from Augustine.  Just yes or no.  Here:

Yes or no.

Here’s why this question is urgent.  Butterfield, Allberry, and Perry are currently superstars in the world of Protestant Christianity, constantly summoned to discuss issues of sexuality in the church.  They all had experience with same-sex attraction.  They all say they believe in Christ.

And they all attack conversion therapy.  According to her profile on Alchetron, Rosaria Butterfield believes the following:

She does not identify herself as “ex-gay” and does not think any Christians should identify themselves as “gay Christians.”  She notes that “[t]he job of the adjective is to change the noun.”  Butterfield has criticized conversion therapy for contending that the “primary goal of Christianity is to resolve homosexuality through heterosexuality, thus failing to see that repentance and victory over sin are God’s gifts and failing to remember that sons and daughters of the King can be full members of Christ’s body and still struggle with sexual temptation.”  Butterfield suggests this is a version of the prosperity gospel.

More Facebook Censorship — AFTAH Punished 30 Days for Criticizing Chicago Homosexual Perversion-fest International Mr. Leather

Monday, September 17th, 2018

Folks, to paraphrase the Gipper (Ronald Reagan) in his famous 1980 debate quip to Walter Mondale, “There you go again, Mr. Zuckerberg.” Coming after one petty Facebook censorship takedown of an AFTAH FB post [see it here], the social media giant just informed me that “You can’t post, comment or use [Facebook] Messenger for 30 days. This is because 2 of your posts go against our Community Standards on hate speech, and because you previously posted something that didn’t follow our standards.”

This is one the offending posts, which appeared on both my own (“Peter LaBarbera”) Facebook page as well as my “Americans For Truth About Homosexuality” page. Note that I had blocked out the indecency and labelled it “Wrong”–which I suspect is my biggest Facebook “crime.” So now it is “hateful” to call out one of the most perverted deviant sex (sadomasochistic) celebrations in the world (you know: men calling themselves sex “pigs,” etc., as: wrong, gross, twisted and, yes, satanic?

No explanation. No defense of their worldview. Just the same old “hate” mantra. The “techie” Left, super self-righteous and all about power and (thought) control, is killing free speech and reasoned discourse in this nation, and conservatives are still struggling to figure out how to fight it. More photos below after the jump. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera
