“Civil Unions” & “Gay Marriage”

VIDEO: AT&T ‘Just OK Is Not OK’ Babysitter Commercial Promotes Homosexual Parenting

Saturday, January 12th, 2019

“Just OK” for a child not to have a mommy (by design)? AT&T pushes “gay parenting” in its “Just OK is not OK” ad campaign.

Folks, this AT&T commercial with two homosexual “dads” and their “just OK” babysitter aired frequently during some of the post-Christmas college bowl games. The theme of the ads is, why would you settle for an important service that is “just ok,” as opposed to excellent and trustworthy? Notice the two men going out on a date like normal parents.

Anyone with a pulse who watches TV should have noticed by now that the ad business is engaged in heavy-handed promotion of interracial couples. (It seems as if 90 percent are interracial.) Even for everyday Americans like me who loathe racism and applaud such couples, the campaign is tiresome and condescending. As a friend told me the other day: “It’s as if in TV World, white people don’t marry white people anymore, and black people don’t marry black people.” Irritating overkill from the “diversity” scolds.

Now throw sexual perversion into the mix. Hollywood and Corporate America have been working overtime for years to normalize homosexuality and gender confusion, and it’s only going to get worse. There is a key difference between natural (man-woman), mixed-race marriages and homosexual unions: the former naturally produce beautiful children, while two people of the same sex cannot reproduce (by themselves). One honors God’s created order, the other flouts it and defies our Creator.

Remember, too, that big corporations score points on Human Rights Campaign’s woefully biased “Corporate Equality Index” scorecard for running pro-LGBTQ ads like this. (The HRC scorecard punishes the same companies if they dare to publicly support groups like AFTAH that defend natural marriage.) Surely most Americans are oblivious to this behind-the-scenes manipulation. Play the ad video below: [See more commentary after ad and page jump]

Bauer Slams Anti-Trumper Mitt Romney – Contrada Book Exposes His Pro-LGBT Record

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2019

Amy Contrada’s book “Mitt Romney’s Deception” exposes his long history of pro LGBT advocacy.

Social conservative Gary Bauer of American Values is more restrained than most conservative Republicans in his takedown of the opportunistic Mitt Romney, who took to the Trump-hating Washington Post on New Year’s Day to bash the President (see Bauer’s classy response below).

The craven now-Senator Romney becomes one of the biggest phony “conservatives” in a town full of phonies and hypocrites (on both the Left and Right).

My friend and pro-family writer Amy Contrada of MassResistance long ago exposed Romney’s very un-Mormon-like pro-homosexual record during his last, failed run for President. It’s a lot to read, but I highly recommend her book, Mitt Romney’s Deception: His Stealth Promotion of “Gay Rights” and “Gay Marriage” in Massachusetts, available on Amazon HERE. Or, you can buy two shorter e-books containing some of the same material:

Maybe if more Republicans paid a heavy price for selling out conservative, pro-family values like preserving natural marriage, the Party might pose an actual threat to Big LGBTQueer. — Peter LaBarbera, Americans For Truth; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

Mitt’s Message

By Gary Bauer, January 2, 2019

The past two years have witnessed some of the most brutal political battles in modern American history. Leftists refused to accept the 2016 election results. They disrupted the inauguration. And the Deep State has been attempting to undermine the Trump presidency every day since he was elected.

Staver Backs Trump SCOTUS Nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Citing His Praise of Rehnquist and Judicial Restraint

Wednesday, July 11th, 2018

Family Man, Foe of Judicial Activism: SCOTUS nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh stands with wife Ashley and their two daughters, Margaret (left) and Elizabeth (Liza) (right), before being introduced to the nation by President Trump Monday night at the White House. In a 2017 speech Kavanaugh praised the restrained judicial approach of former Supreme Court Chief Justice William Rehnquist and called him his “first judicial hero.” Photo taken from White House video.

Folks, here is Liberty Counsel Founder and Chairman Mat Staver’s take on Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump’s nominee to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy. The monumental question before us is this: how would a future “Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh” decide on past cases like Roe v. Wade (coupled with Doe v. Bolton: Court-imposed nationalization of abortion-on-demand) and Obergefell v. Hodges (Court-imposed nationalization of homosexuality-based “marriage”), both of which relied heavily on an activist-minded judicial approach that displaced the legislative process?

Also, please note in the media discussions about Kavanaugh that commentary on the potential repeal of Obergefell is muted, despite it being only three years (as opposed to 45 for Roe) since the Court invented a new “constitutional right” by radically redefining marriage–effectively blocking the American people’s voice and votes in dozens of states from preserving real and natural marriage. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

Press release by Liberty Counsel, July 10, 2018:

Kavanaugh’s Judicial Philosophy

WASHINGTON, D.C. — President Trump nominated D.C. Court of Appeals Judge Brett Kavanaugh to fill retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy’s vacancy on the Supreme Court.

Judge Kavanaugh, who has written over 300 judicial opinions, said in his nomination speech last night that his judicial philosophy has been “straightforward. A judge must be independent and must interpret the law, not make it.” Kavanaugh also stressed he believes in interpreting statutes and the Constitution as they are written, “informed by history and tradition and precedent.”

In his speech, “From the Bench: The Constitutional Statesmanship of Chief Justice William Rehnquist“ that Kavanaugh presented for the 2017 Walter Berns Constitution Day Lecture at the American Enterprise Institute about Chief Justice Rehnquist, he said Rehnquist was “his first judicial hero.” Kavanaugh’s lecture focused on the impact that Rehnquist had on the Supreme Court, noting that the “Court unquestionably changed and became more an institution of law, where its power is to interpret and to apply the law as writing, informed by historical practice, not be its own person and policy predilections.”

Regarding the Supreme Court’s abortion decisions, he pointed out that Rehnquist dissented from the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision and the 1992 Planned Parenthood v. Casey decision. In Casey, Rehnquist was originally writing the majority opinion to overrule Roe, but 30 days into the writing phase, Justice Kennedy changed his vote from striking down Roe to upholding Roe. The opinion was now removed from Rehnquist who then found himself in the dissent.

Rehnquist believed a judge must apply the law, not create it. He believed that fundamental rights must either be enumerated in the Constitution (like free speech) or deeply rooted in history and tradition. Abortion was neither an enumerated right nor deeply rooted in history and tradition. While Rehnquist’s views on abortion never became the majority opinion, he did write the majority opinion in the 1997 so-called “right to die” case known as Washington v. Glucksberg. Writing for the 5-4 majority, Rehnquist said that the “right to die” was neither an enumerated right nor deeply rooted in history and tradition. Here, Rehnquist’s originalist views did prevail.

VIDEO: Ex-Transgender Grace Harley Describes How Her ‘Sexual Orientation’ Was Completely Changed

Thursday, June 28th, 2018

“I never wanted to be heterosexual,” says former “transgender” who once “married” a woman.

Grace Harley of One Solitary Voice Ministries was delivered out of sexual perversion 26 years ago.

Folks, here is Rev. Grace Harley’s speech at AFTAH’s June 26 “Repeal Obergefell” press event in front of the Supreme Court, to mark the three-year anniversary of the judicial travesty of the Obergefell “gay marriage” decision. Every day I am confronted by LGBTQ activists who insist that “sexual orientation” cannot be changed. And yet my friend Grace testifies to the opposite–saying [go to 4:25] that she hasn’t had a lustful sexual thought about women since her Christian conversion 26 years ago. Grace, like all of us, cannot change her skin color but she praises the Lord that through His grace and power she radically changed her sexual thoughts and disordered “transgender” lifestyle. (Her reference to the “MCC” is for the Metropolitan Community Church, a “gay activist” church catering to unrepentant homosexuals.)

This video was shot by Cliff Kincaid of America’s Survival; note that I’m a contributor to the new AS book advertised in the video, “Permanent Revolution: The Secret Life and Legacy of Barack Hussein Obama”; my chapter is on the bizarre childhood and potential homosexual background of Obama, and his deceptive flip-flop to help usher in “gay marriage” in the United States. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; @PeterLaBarbera

‘I Was Living a Lie Until Jesus Delivered Me’: Ex-Gays Reflect on Historic Gay Marriage Ruling

By John Wesley Reid, Jenna Browder, 6-26-18, CBN.com

WASHINGTON – Three years have passed since the US Supreme Court validated gay marriage as the law of the land in the landmark case Obergefell v. Hodges.

To mark the three-year anniversary of this case, Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) stood outside the Supreme Court to denounce the decision and demand a repeal.

But this wasn’t only about a judicial conflict. Joining the protest were a group of ex-LGBT people who credited Jesus with pulling them from their former lifestyles.

“I was enslaved to homosexuality for 30 years until I prayed to Jesus and He told me where my true identity was,” one speaker told the crowd. “I was living a lie in who I thought I was until Jesus delivered me!”

Kathleen Crank, Republican pro-family advocate and a candidate for the Maryland House of Delegates, expressed the challenges often felt with advocating biblical truth.

“Exposing the darkness is no fun and can be frustrating and frightening as I have learned.” Crank said. “Even though it’s frustrating and frightening to keep telling the truth, we have to keep doing it because the right side of history is true.”

Ex-‘Gays,’ Pro-Family Leaders Mark Third Anniversary of Supreme Court’s Devastating Obergefell Ruling Imposing Homosexual ‘Marriage’ on All 50 States

Monday, June 25th, 2018

Freedom From Homosexuality–Ignored by SCOTUS: Former lesbian and one-time leading “gay” advocate, Charlene Cothran, will speak in front of the U.S. Supreme Court June 26, to mark the third anniversary of the radical Obergefell v. Hodges decision, which effectively imposed homosexual “marriage” on the nation. Obergefell specifically distorted the reality that homosexuals can change and leave that sinful lifestyle behind, as Charlene and countless others have. Two other ex-“gays” will speak at the AFTAH press event.

June 25, 2018

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH.org) is sponsoring a press event in front of the U.S. Supreme Court tomorrow, Tuesday, June 26, 2018 to mark the third anniversary of the Obergefell v. Hodges ruling that radically redefined natural “marriage” to accommodate homosexuality and effectively imposed it on all 50 states.

Details:

Who: Pro-family leaders defending natural marriage (one-man, one-woman) against the 2015 Supreme Court-imposed fiction imposing homosexual “marriage” on the nation.

When: Tuesday, June 26, 2018, 11:00 AM – the third anniversary of the Obergefell v. Hodges decision.

Where: In front of the U.S. Supreme Court, Washington, D.C.

“The Obergefell judicial travesty is right up there with Roe v. Wade and Dred Scott as among the most unconstitutional and misguided Supreme Court decisions in American history. It tramples over marriage-protection amendments–passed overwhelmingly by voters in dozens of states–while attaching the noble and godly institution of marriage in U.S. law to homosexuality, a sexual perversion that is clearly proscribed in Scripture,” said Americans For Truth president Peter LaBarbera.

“Obergefell put a gas pedal to America’s already-accelerating moral decline and the LGBT-leftist war against religious freedom. It also makes it easier for schools to indoctrinate children in sex-and-gender confusion in the name of ‘equality.’ Americans who care about truth, virtue and liberty must never accept this Court-imposed lie. We must work and pray for its reversal. People of faith simply must never give in to the false version of reality and nature that Obergefell attempts to normalize,” LaBarbera said.

Supreme Court’s Masterpiece Cakeshop Decision Just Kicks the Can Down the Road in Conflict Between Religious Liberty and Homosexual ‘Dignity’

Saturday, June 9th, 2018

“One wonders how the case would have come out if the Colorado Commission had not been overtly hostile to Jack Phillips.”

By William Olson and Herb Titus, first published June 5, 2018, by Restoring Liberty

[On June 4], the Supreme Court ruled in favor of cake maker Jack Phillips in the Masterpiece Cakeshop case. Justice Kennedy wrote the decision for the Court, joined by six other justices, both liberal and conservative. Justices Gorsuch and Alito concurred, Justices Thomas and Gorsuch concurred, Kagan and Breyer concurred, and Justices Ginsburg and Sotomayor dissented.

There is very little principled analysis in any of the Court’s five opinions except for that of Justice Thomas, who concluded that Phillips was denied his freedom of speech.

Justice Kennedy’s majority opinion focused mainly on the despicable treatment Phillips received in front of the Colorado Civil Rights Commission. In particular, Justice Kennedy noted that the Commission ruled against Phillips for his refusal to bake a pro-gay cake, but ruled in favor of three other bakers who refused to bake anti-gay cakes.

The significance of the majority opinion is nicely summed up in its last paragraph: “The outcome of cases like this in other circumstances must await further elaboration in the courts, all in the context of recognizing that these disputes must be resolved with tolerance, without undue disrespect to sincere religious beliefs, and without subjecting gay persons to indignities when they seek goods and services in an open market.”

In other words, this decision is essentially confined to his facts — ruling for Jack Phillips because the Colorado commission was openly hostile towards Phillips’ religious beliefs. Every future case involving such a state “public accommodations” law, however, will be a balancing act, conducted by federal judges, pitting homosexual “dignity” against sincere religious beliefs.
