The Agenda: GLBTQ & Activist Groups

VIDEO: Save the Date: EX-Transsexual Walt Heyer to Speak at AFTAH Banquet October 6

Tuesday, June 12th, 2018

Healthy Change: Walt Heyer. See his website, SexChangeRegret.com.

Folks, you’re not going to want to miss this year’s AFTAH dinner-banquet, featuring Walt Heyer, a man who once identified as a “woman,” so much so that he went through body-disfiguring “sex reassignment surgeries” to match his body with his delusion. But the Lord had other plans for Walt, and you will be blessed to hear his astonishing story in person!

The AFTAH event is Saturday, October 6, 2018, and our host is the Church of Christian Liberty (affiliated with the Christian Liberty Academy in Arlington Heights, Illinois), pastored by my friend, Calvin Lindstrom. Tickets are $25/person.

Walt is the author of several books and the website, SexChangeRegret.com. God is using him worldwide in amazing ways to respond to the “transgender insanity” that is all the rage in the leftist media, Hollywood and academia. Back in 2011, AFTAH was one of the first pro-family groups to interview Walt about his compelling life story, so we are very excited to have him now as our speaker. Tickets are just $25 per person; buy a table of 10 for $250. Pay safely online HERE (the donation page is not yet updated for the Oct. 6, 2018 banquet–just note “2018 banquet” in the Comment box). Or mail your payment to: AFTAH, PO Box 5522, Naperville, IL 60567-5522. Please plan to be there! — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; @PeterLaBarbera

PS. Here is a short video of Walt being interviewed by the conservative Heritage Foundation’s online publication Daily Signal:

Staver Commends Trump Memo on Qualified Military Transgender Ban

Tuesday, March 27th, 2018

Media: All Trans, All the Time: The dominant secular media have pushed the “transgender” agenda relentlessly in recent years, as illustrated by this 2014 TIME magazine story celebrating the alleged cultural “Transgender Tipping Point.” Pictured on the cover is biological male and “Orange Is the New Black” star Laverne Cox, who claims to be a woman and who crusades for “trans rights.” Click to enlarge.

The following news release was sent out by the pro-family legal group Liberty Counsel March 26, 2018:

WASHINGTON, D.C. – President Donald Trump issued a new memorandum last Friday disqualifying “transgender” individuals from serving in the military, stating that the Defense secretary and the Homeland Security secretary should “exercise their authority to implement any appropriate policies concerning military service by transgender individuals.”

The memorandum said individuals with a history of gender dysphoria, defined as “those who may require substantial medical treatment, including through medical drugs or surgery,” are disqualified from military service “except under certain limited circumstances.” Those who are currently in the United States military may remain in the ranks, but the Pentagon could require them to serve according to their gender at birth.

In a memo to the president, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis cited “substantial risks” about military personnel who seek to change or who question their gender identity. He found that individuals with a history or diagnosis of gender dysphoria presented a risk to military effectiveness and “could undermine readiness, disrupt unit cohesion, and impose an unreasonable burden on the military that is not conducive to military effectiveness and lethality.” This new policy will enable the military to apply well-established mental and physical health standards—including those regarding the use of medical drugs—equally to all individuals who want to join and fight for the best military force the world has ever seen.

Mattis suggested three exceptions:

  1. If a person diagnosed with gender dysphoria can demonstrate a period of at least 36 months where they no longer suffer from the psychological condition;
  2. Those diagnosed with gender dysphoria who do not seek to “transition” (receive hormone drugs and undergo plastic and other surgery), and are deployable, may also serve; and
  3. Those who have already been serving prior to the effective date of the new policy will not be discharged.

Two U.S. district courts, one in the District of Columbia and one in Maryland, previously blocked enforcement of President Trump’s proposed August 2017 ban on “transgender” persons in the armed services. According to the Defense Department, those courts required the branches to begin allowing such recruits to sign up for military service. A third order by a U.S. District judge also allowed the state to challenge the ban, stating that Washington has an interest in protecting its residents from discrimination.

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.

MassResistance Writer Asks In Wake of CPAC Ban – Is the Conservative Movement Dead?

Thursday, February 22nd, 2018

Folks, this essay by my friend and author Amy Contrada lays out some of the troubled recent history of CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) and homosexuality. Last week, CPAC’s executive director, Dan Schneider, suddenly disinvited our friends at MassResistance as an Exhibitor sponsor at the conservative conference (which began yesterday) after first allowing MR to exhibit. You see, as Amy documents, CPAC–the group that welcomed self-styled “Dangerous Faggot” Milo Yiannopoulos as a speaker last year, is concerned that MassResistance president Brian Camenker lacks “common decency”! (This is not a joke.) And needless to say, the same CPAC again this year welcomed the homosexual-transgender activists at Log Cabin Republicans as Exhibitors. [Watch the short AFTAH video on Log Cabin-Chicago’s perverted 2009 “gay pride” float HERE.]

When MR was booted, AFTAH applied for an Exhibitor’s table, but we never heard back from CPAC and our $2,000 payment was not processed. Then I learned that CPAC denied journalist’s credentials to Cliff Kincaid, a good friend of AFTAH and a rare conservative leader who still fights the radical LGBTQueer agenda. It seems that the CPAC model for building a “conservative” movement is to alienate real conservatives, especially socialcons, while pandering to social “progressives” at the expense of biblical truth and fidelity to the GOP Platform. What folly. More coming on this CPAC-sellout story.  — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter:” @PeterLaBarbera

Pro Family Group Asks: Is the Conservative Movement Dead?

By Amy Contrada

Our conservative pro-family group MassResistance was approved in January as an exhibitor at CPAC, the Conservative Political Action Conference. We were abruptly disinvited last week. We are trying to understand the reason.

CPAC’s parent organization, the American Conservative Union, claims it “defines conservatism.” They hold a huge annual conference in DC, beginning February 21 this year.

Why would a group or speaker be banned? CPAC Executive Director Dan Schneider said he rescinded our participation due to our uncivil discourse. He was “uncomfortable” with our tone. CPAC has been telling our supporters who call that we “lack common decency.” Several of our supporters were even told that our group encourages violence against gays! That is libelous. We’ve never done anything of the sort.

How has CPAC responded to the actual uncivil discourse of its invitees in the past? Let’s look at two examples: the Log Cabin Republicans and Milo Yiannopoulos. We will then describe our own shocking treatment at the hands of the “conservative establishment.”

Log Cabin Republicans

The LGBT activist Log Cabin Republicans (LCR) have a table at CPAC 2018 for the third year in a row. Here’s how they reacted to the 2016 Republican Party Platform in full-page ad in USA Today:

LOSERS! MORONS! SAD! No, these aren’t tweets from Donald Trump. This is what common-sense conservatives are saying about the most anti-LGBT platform the Republican Party has ever had. GOP Platform Committee: Out of touch, out of line, and out of step with 61% of young Republicans who favor same-sex marriage.

Is an ad portraying fellow Republicans as “losers” and “morons” civil discourse? LCR admitted their ad was “provocative.” Their president explained he was “mad as hell” as he ranted against the platform’s “nonsense” on same-sex marriage, transgender bathroom access, and approval of counseling for those questioning their sexual orientation.

At a gay pride event in Chicago [see AFTAH video], the LCR float included signs reading:

A strong military shoots big loads
BIG DICKS – small government
CUT TAXES – UNCUT 8 inches

Yet the American Conservative Union (ACU) and CPAC have had no problem with LCR’s insulting and degrading language. This is despite LCR’s violation of one of the four mandatory criteria for being a CPAC sponsor, namely that “The applicant organization must not exist primarily for a liberal purpose.” And what is LCR’s main purpose? Promoting the radical homosexual and transgender agenda – clearly a liberal purpose, and their core identity.

Milo Yiannopoulos aka ‘Dangerous Faggot’

In 2017, vulgar “gay” provocateur libertine Milo Yiannopoulos (who calls himself the “Dangerous Faggot”) was invited to be the keynote speaker at CPAC. Milo’s “tone” was no secret. ACU’s invitation went out to him despite his performance a year before in Cleveland during the 2016 Republican Convention where he flamed out in his rank language.

VIDEO: Chaps Klingenschmitt Interviews Peter LaBarbera on Milo Yiannopoulos, CPAC and ‘Gay Conservatives’

Friday, March 10th, 2017

I enjoyed this interview with my friend Dr. Chaps Klingenschmitt on the Milo Yiannopoulos controversy and the whole notion of “gay conservatives.” Gordon James (Dr. “Chaps”) Klingenschmitt is the director of the Pray in Jesus Name Project. As you can see, we are both torn on Milo. [See my recent piece in LifeSiteNews, “Milo still defends sex between men and teenage boys despite blowback.”]  In the interview, I attempt to bring out the subversive aspects of Milo’s “conservatism,” which includes his bawdy, sodomitic humor that is way too disgusting to describe in depth on pro-family program.

And yet, as you can see beginning at 11:45 in this video, Milo brilliantly analyzes the recent violent UC-Berkeley riots by leftists targeting his (canceled) speech there. Chaps notes Milo’s recent apology for joking about pederasty (sex between men and boys) in which he was involved, and I discuss the reality of “man-boy love” (sodomy) in the homosexual subculture going way, way back. Chaps also notes a reality that was almost ignored due to the Milo controversy: CPAC is now again pandering to homosexual activists, thus undermining Ronald Reagan’s “three-legged stool” of conservatism. Two-legged stools don’t stand up, so the GOP is headed for big trouble if it continues to jettison the homosexual issue. Chaps says a prayer for Milo at the end of the video. –Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

VIDEO: Former Disney CEO Michael Eisner Revealed that 40 Percent of Disney Employees Are ‘Gay’ – and That Was in 1998

Tuesday, March 7th, 2017

AFTAH exclusive video shows extent of homosexual insider influence in once-wholesome Disney

Disney_40_Percent_Gay__Eisner_AFTAH_Video_1998

How “Gay” Is Disney? 40 percent-plus? Click on photo to enlarge. See entire AFTAH undercover video story HERE. Click on graphic to enlarge.

Folks, about 19 years ago I attended an LGBTQ student conference at UC-Santa Cruz in which a very powerful homosexual activist, Elizabeth Birch, then executive director of the Human Rights Campaign, “dished” about a conversation she had with then-Disney CEO Michael Eisner. I was there semi-undercover for Lambda Report, the forerunner of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH).

As you can see below, Birch relates how Eisner “corrected” her by revealing that a whopping “40 percent” of Disney’s employees were “gay”–not 30 percent as she had thought.

That was around February of 1998. Imagine how bad the problem is today, as the current controversy over Disney’s injection of homosexuality into a “Beauty and the Beast” remake illustrates. Here is a one-minute video excerpt of the larger AFTAH undercover video-story of the UC-Santa Cruz event, courtesy of our friends at LifeSiteNews, where I am a reporter.

Fox News’ Shep Smith Goes Public with His Homosexual Problem

Monday, October 17th, 2016

No shock here:

  • Fox anchor silent as he was routinely “outed” by homosexual journalists;
  • Shep has history of making anti-conservative comments on air:
  • “Haters gonna hate,” he quipped about Kim Davis
  • Ridiculed 2012 “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day,” calling it “National Day of Intolerance”

Editor’s Note: this article was revised Oct. 20, 2016

_____________________________

shep_smith_wash_blade_nlgja_fundraiser_2014

The Non-Secret Is “Out”: D.C.’s homosexual newspaper Washington Blade reported in 2014 that Shep Smith was a “closeted” (secret) homosexual. Here he attends a fund-raiser for the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association–which is funded by Fox News and other media corporations. Smith is the man on the farthest right. Read America’s Survival’s 2013 in-depth report on Fox’s escalation pro-homosexual bias HERE

Well, we called it on Shep, but so did just about every other conservative who is in the know about Fox News: the network’s afternoon news anchor, Shepard Smith, has publicly “come out” as homosexual, in an interview with Huffington Post. Notice that we reject the modern vernacular, that Shep “came out as gay,” because we regard every personal “coming out” embracing homosexuality as a tragedy. Shep is not nobly walking into truth, he’s publicly embracing a lie–identifying himself positively with a sexual sin.

The main reason we predicted this sad news is that Shep never denied it when homosexual “journalists” like the editors at OUT magazine routinely labeled him as a “closeted” homosexual. No normal guy doesn’t deny that. And a guy who is struggling to overcome unwanted same-sex desires doesn’t show up for happy photos at a homosexual journalists fundraiser (the same group that once auctioned off a male stripper to raise funds).

Also, Shep went out of his way–on air–to show his contempt for people like Christian Kim Davis (“Haters are gonna hate,” he quipped). Big clue.

Identifying publicly with a destructive and unnatural sin is a problem–not something to proud of, nor a natural identity, nor even a mere acknowledgement of an innocuous trait. We’re not buying it–as so many lazy thinkers in our country have–that Shep is inherently (or innately) “gay.”Hopefully one day he will ditch the lie and leave homosexuality behind, as so many people have.

In the HuffPo interview, Smith and his puff interviewer play up his “newsman” credentials–and he certainly is the guy to watch during, say, a terrorism crisis or natural disaster. But in covering cultural and political stories, Shep occasionally departs from objectivity and moves into–sometimes scathing–commentary that exposes his liberal bias. Exhibit A: his cheap shot at the hundreds of thousands of Americans taking part in Gov. Mike Huckabee’s 2012 “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” (see below).

As we have observed many times, “out” media elites have difficulty keeping their “proudly gay” politics from from influencing their public conduct. So we expect that the more comfortable Smith becomes in his “openly gay” shoes, the more he will let slip those unprofessional pro-“gay” quips that generally evince a contempt for religious and moral Americans.

And Fox News will continue to trend in a pro-LGBTQ direction, as it has since I wrote the 2013 America’s Survival report on the network’s growing pro-homosexual bias. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; @PeterLaBarbera

Linda Harvey on Oregon’s ‘Gender-Obliterating Nonsense’ – The Worst State to Raise Children

Sunday, October 16th, 2016
twitter_alex_matheny_from_pretty_girl_to_pretend_man_aftah-graphic

LGBTQ Liberalism Is Destroying Young Women’s Bodies: Alex Matheny, 20, shows off her “transgender” “top surgery” at right after she had her healthy breasts surgically removed to have a flat chest like the “man” she wants to be (and yet never can be). At left is photo of Alex as a beautiful girl a few years ago in high school. Ideas have consequences, and the “transgender” ideology pushed by powerful LGBTQ groups like the Human Rights Campaign is leading thousands of youth to mutilate their bodies to fulfill a disordered fantasy of becoming the opposite sex. This dangerous agenda is most aggressive in deep-blue states like Washington and Oregon. Matheny is shown October 6, 2016, one month after her breast-removal operation; at this point she had been on (male) testosterone hormone therapy for about nine months. Photos: Alex Matheny’s Twitter page.

Folks, here is another column on gender insanity by Linda Harvey, who is the keynote speaker at the AFTAH dinner-banquet in less than two weeks, on Friday, October 28, 2016 at Grace Gospel Fellowship Church, in Bensenville, Illinois (in northwest suburban Chicago).

The Worst State to Raise Children

By Linda Harvey, first published by WND.com Oct. 9, 2016

Warning: This column contains graphic content.

_______________

Linda Harvey

Linda Harvey comes to Chicagoland for the annual AFTAH dinner-banquet Friday, Oct. 28. Tickets are just $25/person. Full details HERE.

It’s official: Oregon is in free-fall.

And if possible, you really don’t want to raise children there until some big changes are made.

Among a badly behaving peer group – the rest of the states in the U.S. – Oregon still sinks below them all, even radical Massachusetts and loony California.

It’s not just the legalized marijuana and assisted suicide. It’s not just the bisexual governor and the after-school Satan clubs that some Portlandia-dazed educators have welcomed.

Oregon’s liberals – who dominate the government and schools – consider children guinea pigs for grotesque experiments in sexual and spiritual corruption. Praise God for the few Christians and conservatives who have managed to limit these programs to some extent.

But much more remains to be done to protect Oregon’s children from permanent harm.

Consider these facts:

  • In Oregon, a 15-year-old can now embark on hormone and sex-change surgical treatment without a parent’s consent, paid for by Medicaid. This policy was quietly enacted in 2015 by an appointed commission of the Oregon Health Authority. Judicial Watch accessed documents and found that 56 children were treated for gender “assessment” in the first six months of the program, some under age 9.
  • Dr. Paul McHugh, former psychiatrist-in-chief at Johns Hopkins University, has called the Oregon policy for gender-confused youth “child abuse” and that such operations for youth are “never appropriate.”
  • The option for young teens to have healthy breasts and penises amputated is being advocated through the many school-based health clinics that bypass parental rights to advise children about intimate issues and often refer them to Planned Parenthood. Among the services the clinics promote for minor children are “reproductive health” and counseling for “LGBTQ” issues.

So middle-school girls are given birth control and referrals to Planned Parenthood, and students questioning their sexuality will most likely be told, inaccurately, that some people are “born that way” and that such sexual expression is just as natural as heterosexuality.
