Redefining Morality

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

Twitter Has Declared War on Biology – Bans ‘Misgendering’ of Transgenders as ‘Hateful Conduct’

Wednesday, November 28th, 2018

Was a man then, is a man now: Bruce Jenner on the cover of the Wheaties cereal box after winning gold in the decathlon in the 1976 Olympic Games. One’s sex is not subjective.

Folks, this is a devastating announcement by San Francisco-based Twitter, which if enforced could lead to the expulsion of hundreds if not thousands of conservatives from the social media platform through politicized “hate violations.” See the recent social media corporate actions taken against AFTAH: by Twitter HERE; and by Facebook HERE and HERE. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @Peter LaBarbera

PS. Bruce (“Caitlyn”) Jenner can never be a woman, because he was born male and will always be a man, possessing male DNA.

Twitter Declares War on Biology

By Dr. Michael Brown, first published 11-28-18 in Charisma News; subscribe to their newsletters HERE.

I recently did a little computer-generated test to help determine my “physiological age” as compared to my “chronological age.” (Thankfully, I was 8 years younger than my chronological age, 55 rather than 63.) One of the first questions I was asked was whether I was male or female. Why? It’s because – brace yourself! – men are biologically different than women. What a revolutionary concept!

But if a computer program is going to determine your physiological age vs. your chronological age, it needs to know something about your biology since, to repeat, men are different than women.

Medical science understands this.

Genetic studies understand this.

Still a man… Click on photo (taken at an International Mr. Leather event in Chicago) to enlarge.

Common sense understands this.

But it appears Twitter no longer understands this.

So, Twitter has updated its terms of service, adding further information under the category of “Repeated and/or non-consensual slurs, epithets, racist and sexist tropes, or other content that degrades someone.”

Specifically, Twitter explains

“We prohibit targeting individuals with repeated slurs, tropes or other content that intends to dehumanize, degrade or reinforce negative or harmful stereotypes about a protected category. This includes targeted misgendering or deadnaming of transgender individuals.”

Note carefully that last sentence, which singles out “misgendering” and “deadnaming.”

Tech Totalitarians: Facebook Puts Peter LaBarbera in 30-day ‘Jail’ for 2016 Post Critical of Radical Transgender ‘Top’ Surgery

Sunday, November 25th, 2018

See update below…

No Criticism of Trans-Insanity Allowed: Facebook cited the above 2016 post as the reason for banishing the private account of AFTAH president Peter LaBarbera for 30 days. The post advertises the 2016 AFTAH banquet presentation by pro-family Christian advocate Linda Harvey. The picture is from the Twitter feed of Alex Matheny, a beautiful young woman who had her healthy breasts surgically removed two years ago in her tragic quest to identify as a man. Just days ago, Facebook “unpublished” Americans For Truth’s FB page, citing similar “hate” violations.

__________________________

UPDATE, 11-26-18: Today I received this notification from Facebook that my “appeal” had been rejected, so my 30-day “jail” sentence remains. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH:

___________________________

Dear AFTAH Readers,

Well, what do you know? Just a few days after Americans For Truth’s Facebook page was “unpublished” due to ridiculous alleged “hate” violations [See articles in LifeSiteNews, WND and AFTAH], my private Facebook page (Peter LaBarbera) was just put on 30-day “Facebook jail” notice for the attached post advertising Linda Harvey speaking at the AFTAH banquet–way back in October 2016!

That means for 30 days from Saturday, Nov. 24, I will be unable to post on Facebook or communicate using Facebook’s Messenger service. I clicked the “appeal” button, but don’t count on the nameless, corporate bureaucrats and “social justice warriors” at this social media giant to admit that they made a mistake.

Take a look at my allegedly “hateful” FB post above. So now it’s OK for a severely gender-confused young woman (in this case, Alex Matheny) to have her healthy breasts surgically removed (essentially a medically unnecessary double-mastectomy), but it’s “hate” for us to criticize it and warn parents and youth that this is destructive and wrong? How absurd. Pro-LGBTQueer “Progressives” hate truth.

Facebook Deletes AFTAH’s Facebook Page, Citing ‘Hate Speech’ Violation

Tuesday, November 20th, 2018

Social media giant cites “safety” concerns and being “respectful,” but by not respecting and tolerating Christian conservatives’ views, is Facebook guilty of ‘hate’ and bigotry?

Facebook ‘hates’ conservatives (or at least their ideas): This is the notice AFTAH received Sunday from Facebook. Jason Salamone is an administrator of the AFTAH FB page. We are appealing the decision. Facebook has “unpublished” AFTAH’s or Americans For Truth President Peter LaBarbera’s pages on previous occasions.

Folks, leftist social media censorship is accelerating, because “power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely” (Lord Acton). On Sunday, [Nov. 18, 2018,] Facebook took down–“unpublished”–AFTAH’s (Americans for Truth About Homosexuality) Facebook page, saying we violated their “hate” standard. We are appealing the decision but unlike Twitter, Facebook does not even let the groups they banish make a case for why the ban is wrong and should be reversed. This ban is beyond Orwellian: Facebook provides no specific examples of *how* our AFTAH posts violated their alleged “hate” standard, but you can see what sort of posts “triggered” these progressive-techie snowflakes HERE, or below.

I tweeted this:

From Twitter: [Sunday] the cowardly yet proficient anti-conservatives at Facebook took down (“unpublished”) our AFTAH (Americans For Truth) FB page, citing violations of their spurious “hate” standards. We are appealing. Look for a piece on this in WND…

Of course, the “hate” charge is spurious and ultimately effectively precludes all MORAL opponents of homosexuality from using Facebook. AFTAH, a Christian educational organization, has from its inception condemned real hatred and violence against homosexuals (or anyone). We have long denounced groups like Westboro Baptist Church with its preposterous “God Hates Fags” message. Please help us spread the word on this cowardly social media censorship of ideas that run counter to “progressive” sacred cows. Thanks. — Peter LaBarbera, Americans For Truth; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

As Pelosi Promises Radical LGBTQ ‘Equality Act’ if Democrats Take House, Republicans Are Mostly Silent on ‘Gay’ Agenda

Tuesday, November 6th, 2018

Culture War No More? Arizona Democratic Senate candidate Rep. Kyrsten Sinema probably regrets protesting the U.S. military in this pink tutu, but she has nothing to fear from Republicans (and media conservatives) over her self-declaration that she is “bisexual.” That’s because GOP candidates and much of “conservative” media have abandoned telling the truth about the homosexual agenda. (Remember that “culture war” issue?) Meanwhile, the leading LGBTQ lobby group, Human Rights Campaign, spent $26 million targeting six key battleground states in the mid-term election. Hear AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera discuss the LGBTQ electoral agenda on VCY America’s “Crosstalk” HERE, and on AFR’s “Janet Mefferd Live” HERE.

“If Christians and conservatives are afraid to even discuss the homosexual agenda, how can we ever hope to defeat it?”

Why is it that one side in the Culture War over the normalization of sex-and-gender perversion (the LGBTQ agenda) is spending many millions of dollars on the election while the other side is afraid even to discuss it?  I have been asking this question in Christian media (AFA’s “One News Now,” AFR’s “Janet Mefferd Live,” VCY America’s “Crosstalk” [go directly to MP3 audio HERE] and AFA of Pennsylvania’s radio talk show) leading up to today’s election, and we sent out this press release today. — Peter LaBarbera, Americans For Truth; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

Nancy Pelosi Promises Radical LGBTQ “Equality Act” if Democrats Win House, while GOP Candidates Self-Censor on Homosexual Agenda

The most dangerous legislation ever to come out of the revolutionary “gay” activist movement – the federal “Equality Act,” which proposes adding “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” as protected classes in the Civil Rights code – hangs in the balance as Americans go to the polls today.

Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) promised that if the Democrat Party wins back the House and she becomes Speaker Pelosi, a top priority will be passing the Equality Act, which now has 198 co-sponsors in the House, all but two of them Democrats.

Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH.org) president Peter LaBarbera has renamed the Equality Act the “Criminalizing Christianity Act” and called it a “gay and transgender lawyers’ dream bill.” It would effectively criminalize traditional morality and undermine religious liberty by punishing Americans for living out their conscience on issues like unnatural homosexual “marriage” ceremonies and taxpayer funding of grotesque transsexual “sex-reassignment surgeries” (masquerading as “health care”).

In an excellent article summarizing the Equality Act, Heritage Foundation scholar Ryan Anderson writes, “By making ‘gender identity’ a protected class, the government would force Americans to embrace transgender ideology in a variety of settings…elevating “gender identity” to a protected class across our federal antidiscrimination laws could impose a nationwide transgender bathroom policy, a nationwide pronoun policy, a nationwide sex-reassignment health care mandate….”

RADIO: Janet Mefferd Interviews LaBarbera over John Oliver’s Nasty Anti-Pence Stunt

Wednesday, March 28th, 2018

Here is a recent (March 22, 2018) interview I did with Christian talker Janet Mefferd. Click on the play button in the graphic below, which takes you to the SoundCloud site; once there, place your cursor just below the sound bar and go to the 24:45 mark in the audio. We discuss HBO late-night host John Oliver’s nasty rant against Vice President Mike Pence and his mock-book homosexualizing Pence’s daughter Charlotte Pence’s “Marlon Bundo” children’s book.

Janet plays excerpts from Oliver’s on-air rant, the video of which is also below (after the jump). If you click the play button below, it starts playing the entire Mefferd show, beginning with an excellent interview with Christian author Josh McDowell and his new book, “Set Free to Choose Right.” My interview starts in the second half, on the SoundCloud site, at 24:45. Also, a link containing audio from many of my radio interviews–on Mefferd’s show and others, including the leftist “Right Wing Watch,” can be found HERE (and HERE under a misspelling).–Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera; [email protected]

VIDEO: Kincaid Interviews LaBarbera, Camenker on CPAC Banning Pro-Family Groups Fighting LGBTQ Agenda

Monday, February 26th, 2018

‘Gay-Trans’ Activists In, Social Conservatives Fighting LGBTQ Agenda Out: Log Cabin Republican activists man Exhibitor’s table at CPAC conference. LCR works to build acceptance of homosexuality and transgenderism within the GOP. Meanwhile, CPAC disinvited MassResistance, which focuses on opposing LGBTQ activism, as an Exhibitor and ignored AFTAH’s paid application ($2,000) for an Exhibtor’s sponsorship at CPAC. Note person at far left is Adelynn Campbell, a “transgender” activist attending the conference as a student member of the conservative campus group Turning Point USA, which downplays traditional “socialcon” opposition to the LGBTQ agenda. Photo: AFTAH.

Folks, here is a video interview I did with my friend Cliff Kincaid Friday at CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) on CPAC’s curious “ban” of MassResistance as a paid Exhibitor, and their apparent rejection by non-action of AFTAH’s $2,000 Exhibitor application.

Cliff, the founder and president of America’s Survival, Inc. (ASI), had his press credentials denied by CPAC after he did an interview with MassResistance president Brian Camenker, which is the second video below. Kincaid has criticized CPAC in the past over taking non-conservative actions, so that also probably contributed to his ouster.

As you can see, Cliff interviewed me directly in front of CPAC’s Exhibitor’s table for Log Cabin Republicans, a homosexual activist group that pushes for acceptance of LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) issues within the GOP. Just a few years ago, allowing homosexual “conservative” groups to sponsor at CPAC was widely criticized in the larger conservative movement; now the organization is banishing single-issue opponents of LGBTQ activism.

The president of Log Cabin, Gregory Angelo, told me that neither he nor LCR had anything to do with MassResistance being disinvited by CPAC. So who got to American Conservative Union (ACU) Executive Director Dan Schneider, who called up Camenker to “fire” MassResistance as a sponsor? Who knows, but this whole mess smacks of Washington elitism and we at AFTAH will not sit idly by as self-perceived leaders on the Right throw grassroots pro-family heroes like Brian under the bus while redefining conservatism (and Christianity) to accommodate sexual perversion. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH.org; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

Kincaid interview with AFTAH’s Peter LaBarbera at CPAC, published Feb. 25, 2018:

ASI video description:

The American Conservative Union, the sponsor of CPAC, is working to normalize homosexual activity and destroy the winning Reagan coalition of social, economic, and foreign policy conservatives. The effect will be to marginalize and isolate traditional conservatives and drive millions of Christians out of the Republican Party.

AFTAH: Is CPAC Conservative When It Bans Anti-Gay-Agenda Exhibitors While Welcoming LGBTQ Activists?

Friday, February 23rd, 2018

Pro-Family Hero Silenced by CPAC: Brian Camenker (left, shown with Gov. Mike Huckabee in 2010) is the leading grassroots fighter against the LGBTQ lobby in the world. Yet his mostly single-issue group, MassResistance, was officially disinvited as an Exhibitor Sponsor by CPAC, the Conservative Political Action Conference. Americans For Truth (AFTAH) then paid the $2,000 to have an Exhibitor’s table at CPAC but our request was ignored and our payment refunded. Meanwhile, CPAC is allowing a homosexual activist group, Log Cabin Republicans, to exhibit, as well as single-issue advocacy groups on issues like opposition to the death penalty, usually a liberal crusade. Is libertarianism silencing the defense of Judeo-Christian sexual morality? Will the GOP go pro-homosexuality like the Conservative party in the U.K.?

AFTAH: Is CPAC ‘Conservative’ When It Bans Anti-Gay Agenda Exhibitors While Welcoming LGBTQ Activists?

February 23, 2018

Contact: Peter LaBarbera: 312-324-3787; [email protected]

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH.org), issued the following statement about the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC)’s decision to disinvite the pro-family group MassResistance as an Exhibitor sponsor. CPAC (Feb. 21-24) welcomed the LGBTQ activist Log Cabin Republicans as Exhibitors, but AFTAH received no response from CPAC when it applied and paid $2,000 to be an Exhibitor after MR was disinvited:

CPAC’s capricious action against MassResistance and its president, Brian Camenker, is an unconscionable sellout of real, principled conservative values. CPAC has it backwards: it is the homosexual-transgender activist group Log Cabin Republicans that doesn’t belong at a conservative conference–not an organization fighting the fanatical, anti-Christian LGBTQ lobby.

The Log Cabin Republicans’ morally subversive agenda is to push for the acceptance of proud homosexuality and “gay marriage” within the Republican Party, and “rights” based on disordered yet changeable sexual behaviors and an ever-expanding array of “gender identities.” This defies God’s creation and is not conservative.

MassResistance is the world’s leading grassroots organization standing up to the homosexual-bisexual-transgender movement. Its dedicated followers expose efforts to “mainstream” deviant sex-and-gender confusion in schools and work to protect—i.e., conserve—the age-old institution of marriage as God ordained it. This is the essence of noble conservatism.

After opening up the door to sexual immorality (with an “R” next to it), CPAC then went a step further by banning this heroic pro-family group, using as its pretext something Camenker said in a speech three years ago. Keep in mind that CPAC invited profane Milo Yiannopoulos, a self-described “Dangerous Faggot,” to speak last year and also has welcomed atheists as Exhibitors.

CPAC has squandered its moral authority by pandering to political correctness. It is teaching young conservatives all the wrong lessons about fairness and right versus wrong. CPAC’s leaders owe an apology not just to Camenker and MassResistance but to principled, Reagan social conservatives everywhere.
