Activist Bill Whatcott Lays Out History of Homosexual (‘Gay’) Activism in Canada

Sunday, December 16th, 2018

Activist Bill Whatcott speaking Dec. 1, 2018 on the history of homosexual activism in Canada and the tyranny of the nation’s “human rights” commissions.

The following is the text of Canadian pro-family activist Bill Whatcott’s speech at the Agape Global Fellowship , December 1, 2018, on the history of homosexual activism in Canada and the hijacking of Human Rights Commissions to push the LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) agenda in Canada (which he calls a “not so free country”). Bill and I were jailed for speaking out peacefully against homosexuality at a public university in Saskatchewan, Canada back in 2014; a judge later exonerated us.

Though his tactics are unorthodox to say the least (e.g., sneaking in to the Toronto “Gay Pride” dressed as green “zombies” for a “gay cannabis” club), Whatcott is easily the bravest and boldest defender of truth against the LGBTQueer movement in all of Canada. The homosexual movement has gained tremendous power there, and is using it to essentially ban dissent from people like Bill who dare speak out against it. That includes Christians, who are losing their right to teach and defend their biblical beliefs. We’ll have more on Whatcott’s current struggle involving his alleged “crime” of “misgendering” a “male-to-female” transsexual activist politician, Ronan Oger, in future posts. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @Peter LaBarbera

Thank you for inviting me here to speak on the important and highly relevant issue of the state of religious freedom, freedom of conscience and freedom of speech in Canada. Let me start by giving a brief history of the homosexual activist movement in Canada and its hijacking of human rights commissions to give perspective to my arguments.

It has now been 50 years since former Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau famously plagiarized the Globe and Mail writer Martin O’Malley’s intellectually dishonest comment “the state has no place in the bedrooms of the nation.” Of course, we can look at the past 50 years and see what Trudeau assured us would merely be legalizing private consensual activity in the bedroom, has grown into something much more than that. In a few short years sodomy moved from the bedroom to the public square in ways completely unforeseen by Canadians at the time and really without precedent in history.

The first public display of support for homosexuality in Canada appeared on Hanlon’s Point on Toronto Island in 1971 two years after Pierre Trudeau legalized sodomy. The event was known as “Gay Days” and was organized by two homosexual activist groups, one known as “Toronto Gay Action” and the other as “The Community Homophile Association.” If one reads the early accounts of these activist events one can see public nudity and promiscuous sexual activity was already integral to the so-called “gay” liberation movement.

From Atheist Scoffer to Christian Believer: The Testimony of Brian Fitzpatrick  

Saturday, December 15th, 2018

Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His godly ones. –Psalm 116:15

Brian Sean Fitzpatrick, 1960-2018.

The following is adapted from email conversations between my good friend and former AFTAH adviser Brian Fitzpatrick and his fiancée, Trinka Jeffery. The night of December 4, 2018, Brian passed away suddenly, at 58, to be with his Savior, Jesus. On a personal note, Brian was my best friend a really terrific guy who loved and served God. I am sad that we will no longer be able to talk, hang out and laugh together here on earth, but I know he is in a much better place. And I am grateful for what God did in his life. Minor edits, additions and web links have been made for the sake of clarity and to provide additional resources. I will see you again one day, my friend!  – Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH.org; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

Note: There is a memorial service for Brian on Saturday, Jan. 5th at the Philippine International Bible Church in Laytonsville, MD. Reception: 3:00 pm; service 3:30.

Introductory note:

I’m Trinka Jeffery, Brian Fitzpatrick’s fiancée.  

Brian had a story that he would want you to know. Much of our courtship was in writing, and I’ve compiled his story, using his own words.

Please … will you enjoy a last little visit with Brian, with me?

I asked Brian how he came to know God the Father and his Son personally, and this is what he told me:

From Atheist Scoffer to Christian Believer: The Testimony of Brian Fitzpatrick

As shared with Trinka Jeffery, August 13, 2017…

By Brian Fitzpatrick

I was not someone who would easily convert. It happened on a singles retreat, which I went to mostly because they were going to play softball. I brought a bat along in case somebody tried to baptize me in a river.

I grew up in a Catholic family, but at age 12 we studied Greek mythology in school, and it occurred to me that the Greeks believed in their gods just as I believed in Jesus and Mary, but both couldn’t be true.

My catechism teachers had no answers. So I decided to become an atheist. (OK … maybe partially so I wouldn’t have to get up on Sunday mornings.)

My parents weren’t pleased, and we fought over it for three years. At 14, I was required to be confirmed. I chose the confirmation name Thomas (for doubts), but this was forbidden because “it would kill your grandfather.” So I was confirmed as Michael because I thought the spelling was cool.

At age 20 or so, I read some philosophy and logic and learned that you can’t prove a negative, therefore you can’t prove God does not exist, therefore my atheism was irrational. So I became an extremely skeptical agnostic.

The first time somebody witnessed to me, it was a man from Campus Crusade [for Christ, later renamed Cru] during my freshman year in college. I was a rather bitter atheist, full of disdain for these hicks and very confident in what I didn’t know. I didn’t even let them in my dorm room. I stepped into the hallway and verbally fenced for 45 minutes or so: “How do you know this is true” and so forth.  Eventually they left and I went down the hall to the opposite stairway and ran ahead of them to the room of two fellow iconoclasts. “The God Squad is on the way!”

Brian Fitzpatrick, Friend of Jesus and Moral Truth, Dies at 58

Friday, December 7th, 2018

Brian Fitzpatrick (1960-2018)

Folks, I tweeted this Dec. 5:

Yesterday [Dec. 4] my best friend, Brian Fitzpatrick, passed away suddenly. He was a great man. Though weak physically, he had a tremendous heart for God, and lived for Him. I will miss him, but am comforted knowing that he is now in the glorious presence of his Savior, Jesus Christ.

In addition to being like a brother to me, Brian was a big part of Americans For Truth. He was a strong influence on AFTAH becoming more biblically and morality-focused in our approach to the LGBTQ “culture war.”  (He would say, and I’m paraphrasing: “The less the Bible is mentioned in the public square, the less relevant it becomes to Americans and the larger culture.”)

The photo at right is of Brian speaking at our rally June 26, 2018 in front of the Supreme Court marking the third anniversary of the devastating, God-dishonoring Obergefell v. Hodges ruling on that effectively imposed homosexuality-based “marriage” on the nation. Brian leaves behind his parents and family, and fiancée, Trinka. They were to be married in May. I’ll have more on Brian’s life in an upcoming piece. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter; @PeterLaBarbera

VIDEO: Peter Kreeft Talks about ‘Soft’ Christianity’s Retreat in the Face of Bold LGBTQ Lobby and Aggressive Islam

Monday, December 3rd, 2018

This interview by LifeSiteNews founder and publisher Steve Jalsevac with conservative Catholic apologist Peter Kreeft is excellent. Kreeft concisely summarizes the weakness of modern American Christianity in the face of two much bolder foes: the LGBTQueer movement and fundamentalist Islam.
