‘Black Lives Matter’ Manifesto Outlines Radical ‘Queer’ Agenda – ‘Disrupt the Nuclear Family Structure’

Monday, July 6th, 2020

Pro-LGBTQueer creed aims to “dismantle cisgender privilege … free ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking”

The following is reprinted from the “Black Lives Matter” website in the section, “What We Believe.” Note the sections bolded in red. For those unfamiliar with LGBTQueer activist newspeak, the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA) defines “cisgender” as follows:

“Refers to a person whose gender identity aligns with the gender and sex assigned at birth (i.e., not a transgender man/woman). Colloquially shortened to “cis” or combined as cis woman or cis man. The word cisgender distinguishes without assuming that cisgender is the neutral or normal state.”

In other words, “cisgender” is the Sexual Left’s term to designate normalcy, i.e., from a gender perspective, one who is not aberrant (say, a biological female who lives and acts like the woman she is). Note that the NLGJA, which curiously bills itself as a mere professional organization–as opposed to a powerful, LGBTQ-activist force within the dominant liberal media–takes pains to assert that just because “cisgender” people act normally, we are not to assume that they are indeed normal.

In order to mainstream sex-and-gender perversion, new, “queer-friendly” words like cisgender and heteronormative must be created to stigmatize what, in a healthy society, is natural and normal. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH.org; @PeterLaBarbera

From the Black Lives Matter website:

What We Believe

Four years ago, what is now known as the Black Lives Matter Global Network began to organize. It started out as a chapter-based, member-led organization whose mission was to build local power and to intervene when violence was inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes.

In the years since, we’ve committed to struggling together and to imagining and creating a world free of anti-Blackness, where every Black person has the social, economic, and political power to thrive.

Black Lives Matter began as a call to action in response to state-sanctioned violence and anti-Black racism. Our intention from the very beginning was to connect Black people from all over the world who have a shared desire for justice to act together in their communities. The impetus for that commitment was, and still is, the rampant and deliberate violence inflicted on us by the state.

Enraged by the death of Trayvon Martin and the subsequent acquittal of his killer, George Zimmerman, and inspired by the 31-day takeover of the Florida State Capitol by POWER U and the Dream Defenders, we took to the streets. A year later, we set out together on the Black Lives Matter Freedom Ride to Ferguson, in search of justice for Mike Brown and all of those who have been torn apart by state-sanctioned violence and anti-Black racism. Forever changed, we returned home and began building the infrastructure for the Black Lives Matter Global Network, which, even in its infancy, has become a political home for many.

Ferguson helped to catalyze a movement to which we’ve all helped give life. Organizers who call this network home have ousted anti-Black politicians, won critical legislation to benefit Black lives, and changed the terms of the debate on Blackness around the world. Through movement and relationship building, we have also helped catalyze other movements and shifted culture with an eye toward the dangerous impacts of anti-Blackness.

These are the results of our collective efforts.

The Black Lives Matter Global Network is as powerful as it is because of our membership, our partners, our supporters, our staff, and you. Our continued commitment to liberation for all Black people means we are continuing the work of our ancestors and fighting for our collective freedom because it is our duty.

Every day, we recommit to healing ourselves and each other, and to co-creating alongside comrades, allies, and family a culture where each person feels seen, heard, and supported.

We acknowledge, respect, and celebrate differences and commonalities.

We work vigorously for freedom and justice for Black people and, by extension, all people.

We intentionally build and nurture a beloved community that is bonded together through a beautiful struggle that is restorative, not depleting.

We are unapologetically Black in our positioning. In affirming that Black Lives Matter, we need not qualify our position. To love and desire freedom and justice for ourselves is a prerequisite for wanting the same for others.

We see ourselves as part of the global Black family, and we are aware of the different ways we are impacted or privileged as Black people who exist in different parts of the world.

We are guided by the fact that all Black lives matter, regardless of actual or perceived sexual identity, gender identity, gender expression, economic status, ability, disability, religious beliefs or disbeliefs, immigration status, or location.

We make space for transgender brothers and sisters to participate and lead.

We are self-reflexive and do the work required to dismantle cisgender privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence.

We build a space that affirms Black women and is free from sexism, misogyny, and environments in which men are centered.

We practice empathy. We engage comrades with the intent to learn about and connect with their contexts.

We make our spaces family-friendly and enable parents to fully participate with their children. We dismantle the patriarchal practice that requires mothers to work “double shifts” so that they can mother in private even as they participate in public justice work.

We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.

We foster a queer‐affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking, or rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual (unless s/he or they disclose otherwise).

We cultivate an intergenerational and communal network free from ageism. We believe that all people, regardless of age, show up with the capacity to lead and learn.

We embody and practice justice, liberation, and peace in our engagements with one another.

VIDEO: Sen. Josh Hawley Leads Charge Against SCOTUS Bostock Decision that Radically Redefines 1964 Civil Rights Act to Enforce Homosexual and Transgender ‘Rights’

Thursday, June 18th, 2020

“Represents the end of the conservative legal project as we know it,” says Senator.

Dear AFTAH Readers:

Well, it looks like American social conservatives have a new leader in that moral and dysfunctional cesspool we call “Washington, D.C.” His name is Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Missouri). On Monday (June 15, 2020), the U.S. Supreme Court blind-sided the Right by delivering an abominable miscarriage of jurisprudence, Bostock v. Clayton County, GA–its 6-3 majority achieved by the treacherous votes of two now-EX-“originalists,” Justice Neil Gorsuch and Chief Justice John Roberts. Both were appointed by Republican Presidents (Gorsuch by President Trump and Roberts by George W. Bush) and were heralded by conservatives during their judicial confirmation hearings as future judges who would “interpret the law, not make laws.”

So much for that. It turns out that judges, like so many politicians, lie, dissemble, or at least “grow” (“progressively” speaking) after winning their lifetime seat on the august court. Bostock hands the LGBTQueer lobby a huge “legislative” victory, to quote Sen. Hawley. Unless checked by real legislators and We the People, it will certainly lead to a cascade of social-engineering tyranny in the name of “gay” and “trans” “equality” [see Justice Alito’s devastating dissent, beginning p. 44].

We expected to be sold out by Mr. “Balls and Strikes” himself, Roberts, after his inexplicable 2012 SCOTUS vote upholding ObamaCare as a “tax.” But Gorsuch’s descent into contorted, liberal legal “reasoning” (bereft of actual reason and common sense) stunned everyone. For goodness’ sake, no lawmaker had even heard of “transgender” in 1964. But the dominant media, now the most powerful branch of the LGBTQ movement, loves Bostock, and even more so because it signals conservative legal acquiescence to the Gay/Trans Revolution.

Above is Sen. Hawley’s outstanding response on the Senate floor (June 17) to this pseudo-textualist apostasy. I wonder: why isn’t our President speaking like this, and why did so many “conservative” Republicans on Capitol Hill run for cover rather than defend core principles like Hawley? — Peter LaBarbera, Americans For Truth; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

Homosexual Activist Dan Savage Wishes COVID-19 Infection on President Trump in Tweet

Friday, May 8th, 2020
Above tweet by homosexual activist, sex columnist and pornographer Dan Savage “hopes” that President Donald Trump is infected with the Wuhan COVID-19 virus. Savage plays off a CNN story about Trump’s person valet who tested positive for the virus. The CNN report states that it raises “concerns about the President’s possible exposure to the virus.” Savage tweets that “concerns” should be replaced with “hopes.” AFTAH added the arrow in the graphic above.

From Twitter – Homosexuality: Just Wrong Behavior that Can Be Overcome

Saturday, April 25th, 2020

Charlene Cothran of The Evidence Ministry.

Folks, I am active on Twitter as one of the few advocates willing to take on the powerful LGBTQueer (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) movement, directly and unapologetically. Here below is a tweet I just posted that captures the essence of what this issue is really about–i.e., minus the media hype and “progressive” myths.

The photo is of Charlene Cothran, a former “gay” activist and LGBT publisher who accepted Jesus Christ and left lesbianism many years ago. Charlene is shown speaking at the very first Americans For Truth banquet in 2007, where she shared the amazing story of how the Lord worked in her life. Please go to her website, The Evidence Ministry, and support Charlene’s important work.

Please click HERE on my Twitter feed to read the hateful responses to this tweet and others like it. Twitter’s activist population is heavily tilted to the left, and many of them simply despise Christians, especially those willing to defend God’s truth about sexual morality.

I could fill a very large book with all the “#GayHate” tweets that have come my way since joining Twitter in 2009. (A lot of them smear me as a closeted homosexual–a lie they can’t seem to stop repeating.) But I’m glad I’m there along with a few others representing time-tested morality, sexual sanity, and hopefully, in my own flawed way, Jesus, whose love and forgiveness all of us sinners desperately need, whether we admit it or not. God bless. — Peter LaBarbera. AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

Queer Quote – Yale Prof Michael Warner: Alfred Kinsey’s ‘Unreliable, Exaggerated’ Data Helped Normalize Aberrant Sex

Thursday, April 23rd, 2020

By Peter LaBarbera, April 23, 2020

Michael Warner is a Yale University professor and progressive “queer” theorist/activist who has been at war with the concept of “normal” for many years. In his book, “The Trouble with Normal: Sex, Politics, and the Ethics of Queer Life” (The Free Press: 1999), he writes about the influence of recklessly corrupt yet groundbreaking “sexologist” Alfred Kinsey. The latter’s 1948 book, “Sexual Behavior in the Human Male,” has in recent decades been exposed by Judith Reisman and others as the junkiest of “junk science” (it even contains heinous “data”  from a child molester documenting his crimes against children—see photo of Table 34 at bottom):

Warner writes:

“More than anyone else, Alfred Kinsey was able to exploit the confusion at the heart of normal. One of his most dramatic points was that nonnormative sexual activities are, in fact, the statistical norm. Using his (admittedly unreliable) figures for things like extramarital sex and same-sex encounters, he calculated that 95 percent of the male population had committed some illicit sexual activities punishable by law…. Kinsey almost certainly exaggerated these figures, if only inadvertently through his irregular sampling. Yet the cataclysmic cultural impact of his study depended less on any of his numbers than on his central point about the contradictory idea of the normal. The idea of normal sexuality, he argued, is too distorted by moralism to be an accurate picture of normal behavior, and if people really were willing to accept behavior norms as normal, then their sexual morality would have to be radically different.”

________________________

Postscript 1) Warner’s elevation at Yale, which was founded by Christian believers in 1701 for the promulgation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, is a testimony itself to the triumph of abnormality in American institutions, mostly due to the Left’s relentless pro-perversion activism. Put another way, he embodies the erosion of Judeo-Christian (biblical) norms that invariably comes when a nation strays from its more godly heritage.

Postscript 2) Although Warner is a “sex-positive” radical who is ideologically on the LGBTQueer left, he is regrettably accurate when it comes to the triumph of moral relativism. Most Americans now possess ideas of what is “normal” (and also “moral”) that not only conflict with historic and biblical norms, but also with widely-accepted sexual standards from just a few decades ago. Of course, this applies to the revolutionary “normalization” of homosexuality—look at Gallup’s annual poll on Americans’ attitudes toward homosexual behavior: from 57 percent of Americans who said homosexual “relations [sex] between consenting adults” should NOT be legal in 1986, to 73 percent in who said it SHOULD be legal in 2019, just 33 years later.

Another example is porn-inspired sex acts: anti-porn advocates, both feminists and social conservatives, have observed that the mainstreaming and proliferation of pornography has changed expectations of sexual behavior for younger men and women. This has led to the “normalizing” of unnatural acts that are common in porn, like anal sodomy (anal sex), among straights–which I presume Warner applauds. Such deviant practices are in turn celebrated in pop culture and taught as an acceptable sexual option to children through liberalized sex-ed in schools, and the downward moral spiral continues.

Child Molestation “Data”? The above is a photo-copy of Table 34 in groundbreaking “sexologist” Alfred Kinsey’s 1948 book, “Sexual Behavior in the Human Male.” Note the timing of manipulated “orgasms” of children, ranging from a 5-month-old toddler to a 14 year-old.

Video: ‘Dark Agenda’ Author David Horowitz Discusses Left’s War on Christian America

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2020

This excellent speech a year ago by former leftist David Horowitz is worth 50 minutes of your time. If you’re like me, you will learn a lot of things you probably should have known–such as the short, innocuous prayer that was part of the Supreme Court’s 1962 ruling (Engel v. Vitale) stripping prayer from our public schools. Enjoy. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH.org; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

“Almighty God, we acknowledge our dependence upon Thee, and we beg Thy blessings upon us, our parents, our teachers and our country. Amen.

LaBarbera, Mefferd Discuss FDA’s Sudden Change in Gay Blood Donation Policy

Tuesday, April 21st, 2020

Folks, I was interviewed Monday as a guest on on Christian talk show host Janet Mefferd’s program, “Janet Mefferd Today.” We discussed the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) surprise move to reduce the deferral time for blood donations from “men who have sex with men” from one year to three months–justified as necessary due to blood shortages during the coronavirus pandemic.

Here is a separate SoundCloud link to the program, or just use the link below:

Here is Janet’s description of the program:

Why has the FDA fast-tracked the ability of homosexual men to donate blood during the coronoavirus pandemic, and what are the real health risks? Plus: Franklin Graham fires back after taking constant flak from Leftists who criticize the Samaritan’s Purse field hospital in New York. Their reason? Graham has a biblical view of homosexuality. I’ll talk about it all with Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality. That and more on Monday’s JANE MEFFERD TODAY.

The Republican homosexual activist group Log Cabin Republicans quickly boasted that it had worked with allies within the Trump administration for the change, but in one of his daily COVID-19 pressers, Trump said he did not even know about the new policy.

Veteran observers will remember that it was President Obama’s FDA that ushered in a radical change for homosexual male blood donations in 2015, reducing the FDA policy from a de facto lifetime ban to a one-year deferral. 

Now that one-year deferral becomes just three months and, predictably, neither the Log Cabin Republicans nor any other LGBTQueer lobby group is satisfied. All are demanding no deferral time on “MSM” blood donations at all, in the name of “equality” and “ending discrimination.”

The FDA change requires a post-coronavirus review. The FDA’s special policy is made necessary by the high-risk sexual behaviors engaged in by “men who have sex with men”–behaviors that have historically made homosexual men vastly disproportionately affected by STDs, especially HIV, compared to the rest of the population. AFTAH will examine this rushed policy liberalization in depth in coming posts.–Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH.org

Radical Washington State ‘SeXXX Ed’ Bill–Pushed by Two Lesbian Democrats–Signed into Law by Gov. Inslee

Monday, April 20th, 2020

Repeal effort underway as concerned parents mobilize


Say No to Planned Parenthood “SeXXX Ed”: Pro-family Washington State citizens descend on the capitol building in Olympia to voice their strong objection to Senate Bill 5395, the “comprehensive SeXXX ed bill,” on March 2, 2020. In late March, the bill was signed into law by Gov. Jay Inslee (D). An effort is underway to repeal it by referendum; see this “Informed Parents of Washington” Facebook page. Photo: Mary Locke.

_____________________________________

Dear AFTAH Readers:

The “progressive,” pro-LGBTQ, “comprehensive sex education” agenda is harmful to the very children it purports to help and protect. On March 27, Washington State Gov. Jay Inslee (D) signed into law Senate Bill 5395, which critics have labeled the “Comprehensive “SeXXX Ed” Bill, and which has generated some of the largest protests ever seen in the capital, Olympia (see photo above).

Two openly homosexual, pro-Planned Parenthood Democratic lawmakers, Sen. Claire Wilson and Speaker Laurie Jinkins, were key sponsors of the bill, which was passed in partisan, Democrat-led votes over the objections of tens of thousands of concerned Washington citizens. Here is an excellent piece on Senate Bill 5395 by Seattle conservative talk show host Todd Herman, who occasionally subs for Rush Limbaugh.

A growing coalition of citizens has formed to fight SB 5395, led mostly by outraged moms and dads, and grandparents who cannot believe what “comprehensive,” “age-appropriate” sex-ed means to the the “progressives” who dominate sexual ed and diversity programs in Washington (and across the country). See the “Informed Parents of Washington” Facebook page HERE

Pro-family advocate Mary Locke, a MassResistance activist who has done yeoman’s work alerting others to the leftist educational extremism in her state, wrote this letter to her local newspaper, the Federal Way Mirror; as of press time it had yet to be printed.

Parents across the nation are waking up to the threat of radical sex-ed agendas and pro-LGBTQueer indoctrination in schools. Hopefully it is not too late to turn this around and restore common sense and respect for time-tested morality. Take Action: Go HERE to learn more about the referendum to repeal SB 5395. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

Children Are on the Front Lines of a Raging Culture War

By Mary Locke

Thanks a lot, Washington state DEMOCRATS! You handed the pornographic sexxx ed bill 5395 to Governor Jay Inslee. This was a party line vote.

No Republican voted to mandate Seattle-style sexxx ed.

Homosexuals Claire Wilson, Democrat State Senator/30th district and House Speaker and Democrat Laurie Jinkins have now MANDATED their warped sense of sexuality on the public-school children of Washington State.

Wilson, Jinkins and all the Democrat leaders of this state need to take off their rainbow-colored goggles and look at the potential damage they have just set in motion.

Wilson and Speaker Jinkins and all Democrats get copious amounts of campaign contributions from Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider. Planned Parenthood is also the biggest beneficiary of “their bill,” 5395 sexxx ed.

Planned Parenthood is mentioned over 50 times in the Sexxx ed curriculum’s “FLASH and KNOW.”

Follow the money.

Planned Parenthood donates to Democrats. Democrats pass a radical sexxx ed law. Planned Parenthood then gets a steady stream of customers.

The approved curriculum promotes fornication and homosexuality, therefore children are told they need birth control and abortions. And Planned Parenthood is right there for the kids.

So, children grades K-12, will have to navigate the sexxx ed grooming that has been approved. Linda Harvey summarized this cultural struggle: “Children are on the front lines of a raging culture war.” Traditional Christians are losing the battle.
