Absolute Truth vs. LGBTQ ‘My Truths’: Apple CEO Tim Cook’s Outrageous ‘Gay’ Claim and the Culture War

Friday, December 26th, 2014
Embracing the "Gay" and Slandering God -- Apple Inc CEO Tim Cook said he was "proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me."

Embracing the “Gay” Lie and slandering God in the process: Apple CEO Tim Cook writes that he is “proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me.” Cook was repeating a gay theology falsehood, labeled as “Satan’s Talking Points” by AFTAH. Homosexual activists have worked to switched the societal stigma from people practicing the sin of homosexuality to the people opposing it. Cook is giving heavily to an HRC project to promote homosexuality in the South.

“I will make justice the measuring line and righteousness the plumb line.” — Isaiah 28:17

“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” – Hebrews 13:8

Dear AFTAH Supporter,

I hope you had a blessed Christmas Day.  Happy New Year!  This is the season to dwell on Absolute Truth, lest we reduce “the holidays”—happy or otherwise–to mere sentimentality.  Divine Truth.  We profess it, but do we actually believe in it?  The namesake of Christmas—Jesus Christ–is the most important Absolute Truth anyone can ever know: God becoming man, to solve man’s sin problem.  [“He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.”—1 John 2:2]

The explosion of sexual sin in Western cultures–especially one like ours with a magnificent Christian heritage that still professes to be “under God”–is ultimately a manifestation of losing the Truth of Jesus.  Let’s face it: many or even most Americans—secular or professing “Christians”–think they’re “smarter than God” when it comes to sex (and other issues), and the result is a society is awash in sin and its consequences: fornication, broken homes, divorce, abortion, widespread STDs and, yes, homosexualism and extreme gender rebellion.

All sins dishonor God, but there’s something especially deplorable and significant about the spread of homosexuality and related perversions in a civilization.  Someone smart once said something to the effect that if homosexual sodomy—what Noah Webster in 1828 defined as “a crime against nature”–is OK, then nothing is wrong.  The court-imposed spread of sodomy-based “marriage” is a cultural act of defiance for which America will be judged—or perhaps is already being judged–as a nation. [Read the AFTAH article, “Gay Marriage and Distant Consequences.”]

Following and obeying Jesus is the key to righteousness.  I find this reality to be evident in my own life: the more I stray from the Savior, the less virtuous, the less “godly,” I become.  The closer I get to Jesus through the Scriptures, the Word of God, the more righteous I become.  So it is with nations.

Changing the standard of right and wrong

All people sin.  But most of us lack the audacity and hubris to attempt to change the transcendent, eternal standard of Right and Wrong, even as we fall short, sometimes woefully short, of God’s righteous demands.

But the earthly “enemies” against which AFTAH contends are all about changing the Truth standard–in a desperate quest to rationalize their sin.  They want to change God’s plumb line of righteousness, based on the authority of, well, their feelings.  “LGBTQueer” forces–fueled by seemingly endless financial resources–work day and night to change the standard, but the standard does not change.  The standard cannot change.

‘It Happened to Me’: How Transgender ‘Bathroom Bills’ Discriminate Against Women by Allowing Men in Women’s Spaces

Monday, November 3rd, 2014

Houston pastors’ victory shows “Gender Identity” laws should influence elections 

This is a man...who wants to be a woman: should he be allowed to use the Female restroom?

Biological Men in Women’s Restrooms? This is a man…who wants to be a woman: should he be allowed to use public female restrooms in the name of  LGBTQ “equal rights”? Photo taken by AFTAH at 2012 Philadelphia “gay pride” parade. Click to enlarge.

By Donna Miller

The Houston pastors’ response to their power-grabbing lesbian mayor Annise Parker’s recent acts of intimidation has been an event from which we should learn far-reaching lessons. A national controversy erupted after Parker issued subpoenas for the sermons of city pastors who sued her after her administration dubiously blocked a citizens’ petition campaign to repeal a pro-homosexual/-transgender “equal rights” ordinance she strongly supported. This historic incident:

  1. taught pastors worldwide how to stand against government tyranny and abuse of power;
  2. removed the mask off presumably positive anti-discrimination (“gender identity”) laws that, in fact, discriminate against women; and
  3. educated citizenry worldwide on “bathroom bills.”

While these so-called “anti-discrimination”/”gender identity” laws are presented to limit discrimination, these radical laws and policies discriminate against women by forcing them to endure public indecent exposure.  Do you know any other law or policy that a sets apart rules for less than 1 percent of the population (transgenders), but another huge portion of the population (women and girls) are told that they must endure men’s publicly indecency – all in the name of civil rights?

Since America is having national elections tomorrow (November 4), it is important to see which politicians support a national bathroom bill (affecting every community in America), the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA).

The U. S. Senate passed this horrendous law in 2013, and Americans can verify how their senator voted at this link. The U. S. House of Representatives introduced this bill, and the sponsors by every local representative of this bill can be found at this link.

In America, at least 18 states plus the District of Columbia have enacted statewide bathroom bills.  Again, these bills were presented as warm and fuzzy ‘inclusive’ anti-discrimination laws. I would love to see the reaction of a politician’s wife who experienced a biological man in her bathroom. After all, men are taught since little tykes that public bathrooms are not a private situation. For women, however, a bathroom is one of the most private places in the universe – and it should stay that way!

Bathroom attacks of women and children are at epidemic level. Most of these attacks are by predators. After studying predators for years, I have learned that they use anything to gain an advantage on their victims.

VIDEOS: ‘Hunky Jesus Contest’ 2014 – Look How Pro-LGBT San Francisco ‘Progressives’ Celebrate Easter Sunday

Friday, April 25th, 2014

Bashing Jesus and Christians is fair game but Islam goes untouched by profane homosexual “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence”

Hunky-Jesus-2014-Bunny-Ears

GOD-HATING ‘GAYS’: A man in bunny ears attends the homosexual “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence” “Hunky Jesus” contest mocking the Resurrection of Christ on Easter Sunday. Drag queen “Sisters” like this fellow have been mocking Jesus Christ and His followers for 35 years. Note that cowardly “gay” activists would never spew their vulgar hatred at Muhammed. Large crowds turn out in San Francisco every Easter Sunday for the annual, blasphemous “Hunky Jesus” event. Photos: Facebook page, “Sister Ambrosia Discordia.” Click to enlarge.

“How long will the wicked, O LORD, how long with the wicked be jubilant?”Psalm 94:3

WARNING: VULGAR & OFFENSIVE LANGUAGE

Here are two short videos (under two minutes) and some photos covering Easter Sunday’s uber-blasphemous “Hunky Jesus Contest” 2014 in San Francisco [watch on YouTube HERE]. The annual Resurrection-mocking event is sponsored by the San Francisco-based “charity,” Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. [See previous AFTAH coverage of  the “Sisters'” “Hunky Jesus” contest HERE.]

The “Sisters”–who are popular in the homosexual Mecca by the Bay and raise money for mostly homosexual- and transgender-related causes–are a bunch of (mainly) homosexual men who dress up in drag and paint their faces to appear as deviant “nuns.” As such, they mock the Catholic Church specifically and Christianity in general. Their urban popularity testifies to the godlessness, insensitivity, bigotry, and immaturity of snarky modern “progressives”–who strangely view themselves as more sophisticated than the rest of America.

The “Sisters”–spouting perverse names like “Sister Tillie Swallows” –get it? “‘Till He Swallows”: an allusion to homosexual oral sex–are now 35 years old [see their “Sistory” HERE], with “orders” in various other cities like Los Angeles and Boston.

Psalm 94:3 gives me comfort, because I know that God is just. Imagine that all these lost people who mock the resurrected Son of God on the most important date on the Christian calendar will have to answer directly to Him some day! I hope some of the “Sisters” and their fans grow up, repent, and see that Jesus Christ and the Resurrection are real, rather than fodder for raunchy “gay” double entendres–Peter LaBarbera, Americans For Truth

P.S. My tweet about how we’ll never see a “Hunky Muhammed Contest” follows the video, and under that (after the jump)  is another short video of Hunky Jesus 2014:

My tweet April  23:

This second YouTube video captures the vulgar and twisted nature of the event and also the large crowds that show up for it every Easter in San Francisco:

Truly SCAAARRRY ‘Gay’ Activist Quotes

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

Radical quotations and LGBT writings reflect a revolutionary and destructive sexual/gender movement

Photo from the NAMBLA website of the late "gay" icon Harry Hay speaking at a 1984 meeting of the North American Man/Boy Love Association. Hay says "gay" boys benefit from sexual relationships with adult homosexual men.

Photo from the NAMBLA website of the late “gay” icon Harry Hay (far right, wearing hat) speaking at a 1984 meeting of the North American Man/Boy Love Association in San Francisco. Hay said “gay” boys ages 12-15 benefit from sexual relationships with adult homosexual men.

Americans For Truth renews its Halloween tradition of delivering some very scary – or at least highly disturbing — quotes from LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) activists and publications. (There is also a frighteningly evil quotation from LGBT “straight ally” Eve Ensler.) Whether it’s promoting pedophilia, sullying Christianity, telling the awful truth about the realities of homosexual sodomies – or one of the biggest Heroes of Homosexuality saying that bestiality is OK (as long as the animals don’t mind, of course) – the following quotations and writings testify to the perverse nature of modern homosexualism. Needless to say, they are not likely to find their way into the liberal media or politically-correct history books taught to schoolchildren.

Most of what homosexual activists and their liberal, straight cheerleaders say about “homophobia” is tendentious nonsense, designed to demonize people like you and me. But Americans and moral-minded folks the world over certainly should fear the real-life ramifications of normalizing sexual perversion and gender confusion in the culture. To quote pro-family advocate Gary Morella, “A civilized society must justly ‘discriminate’ in favor of health over disease, right over wrong, moral over immoral, and discriminate use of sexuality over indiscriminate sexual expression.” People suffer and societies crumble when immoral, unhealthy behaviors are not just tolerated, but fostered and even celebrated by the State and corporate/cultural elites.

So be scared. Be very scared. And please pass around these decidedly “queer quotes” to educate others. – Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH.org

[Warning: A few of quotations below contain explicit descriptions of homosexual acts]

One Lesbian’s ‘Better Two-Thirds’

“Lucky that on this national coming out day I can safely be a proud queer woman blessed with two awesome partners.”

Olga Tomchin, taken from testimony in Transgender Law Center post on “Coming Out,” October 11, 2013 (Oct. 11 is deemed “National Coming Out Day” by LGBT activists); http://transgenderlawcenter.org/archives/9257

 

Bad News for Straight Soldiers

Military-oriented pornography is apparently very popular among homosexual men. Lesbian Camille Paglia says it is absurd to argue that homosexual men will not ogle and lust after straight soldiers in military showers and barracks.

Military-oriented pornography is apparently very popular among homosexual men. Lesbian Camille Paglia says it is absurd to argue that “gay” men will not ogle and lust after straight soldiers in military showers and barracks. The nudity on this video cover above –from a “gay” porn video website — was blocked for decency.

“It is ridiculous to assert that gay men are interested only in other gay men and would never ogle straight men in barracks showers. When I heard this on TV, I burst out laughing. Anyone who belongs to a health club knows better. Sexual tension and appraisal are constants, above all among gay men, who never stop cruising everything in sight. Seduction of straight studs is a highly erotic motif in gay porn.”

Camille PagliaVamps & Tramps, pp. 87-88. (Vintage Books: 1994). “Cruising” is a popular “gay” term for searching for sex partners. Paglia’s assessment is confirmed by the popularity of homosexual pornography with military themes.

 

They’re Here, They’re Queer, They’re Reporters with a Clear Conflict of Interest

“We Here! We’re Queer! We’re on Deadline.”

— Slogan of the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA). See author’s report for America’s Survival, Inc.: “Unfair, Unbalanced and Afraid: Fox News’ Growing Pro-Homosexual Bias and the National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association.” Perhaps appropriately, the NLGJA slogan plays of the old “Queer Nation” street activists’ chant: “We’re here! We’re queer! Get used to it!”

 

Agenda-driven Homosexual Journalists Tout ‘Born Gay’ Myth as Fact

Sexual orientation: Innate sexual attraction. Use this term instead of ‘sexual preference.’ See lifestyle….

Sexual preference: Avoid. Politically charged term implying that sexuality is the result of a conscious choice. See sexual orientation.”

NLGJA “Stylebook” entries, showing the organization’s politicized application of the unproven “born gay” theory. The homosexual journalists’ group uses the Stylebook to guide (pressure) “mainstream” journalists on how to write (and think about) homosexuality. Obviously, this biased definition – beyond being an opinion and not factual — encourages the notion that homosexuals have no responsibility for their same-sex behavior, thus negating the idea that homosexuality itself is a moral issue. Studies show that people who think “gays” are “born that way” are less likely to resist the LGBT activist agenda. For the best refutation of “born gay” ideology and pro-“gay”-politicized science, see the website of Dr. Neil and Briar Whitehead, co-authors of My Genes Made Me Do It: www.mygenes.co.nz. See also author’s “Unfair, Unbalanced and Afraid” report.

 

Black Women, Beware: ‘Down Low’ Men Hate Condoms

“Women involved with DL men [‘Down Low’ denoting men who act straight in public but secretly practice homosexuality] are being infected with HIV because these men do not believe in wearing condoms and they don’t know their HIV status. Condoms take away from the very thing they are seeking—the thrill of spontaneity. Condoms take away that feeling when having man-to-man sex….

“But for the most part, a man on the DL isn’t even thinking about all that. He’s not thinking about a condom or diseases. DL men look at themselves as invincible, strong black men. They ain’t catching that ‘gay disease.’”

J.L. King with Karen Hunter, On the Down Low: A Journey into the Lives of ‘Straight’ Black Men who Sleep with Men,” pp. 25-26; (Broadway Books: New York: 2004).

AFTAH’s LaBarbera Among Authors Featured in WND Whistleblower Issue on ‘Gay-Transgender’ Sexual Revolution

How ‘gay rights’ are eroding Americans’ freedom to oppose sexual sin

whistleblower_mag_New-Sexual-Rev

Whistleblower explores the “gay”-“transgender” revolution. Click on cover above to enlarge. The issue can be ordered for $7.50 from WND by calling 800-496-3266.

Folks, my article in this month’s edition of Whistleblower — the monthly print magazine for WorldNetDaily (WND.com) — is titled, “‘Gay’ Power vs. Religious Liberty: How ‘Gay Rights’ Are Destroying Freedom of Conscience in America.” I summarize a bevy of cases over the last two decades pitting homosexual “rights” against religious liberty (and tragically, people of faith have lost many of those battles). I highly recommend purchasing this particular Whistleblower issue (for $7.50 including postage), which is loaded with cutting-edge information on the LGBT agenda, including Editor David Kupelian’s piece on the “transgender” revolution. Below is a promotional piece on the Whistleblower issue, which you can special-order by calling 800-496-3266 or e-mailing [email protected]. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH

[Buy this single issue from WND for $7.50 or a year’s subscription to Whistleblower for $39.95]

When it started, who could possibly have known it would turn out like this?

After all, it emerged right after the historic ’60s Civil Rights movement, which nobly outlawed racial segregation in America. And in the warm glow of the Martin Luther King era, many people came to believe “gays” were simply the next group needing protection from discrimination.

Of course, being an overwhelmingly Christian nation meant millions of Americans strongly objected to homosexuality on moral and religious grounds. But Americans are also the most pluralistic, tolerant and open-minded people on earth, and were increasingly inclined to give “gay rights” activists the benefit of the doubt.

Eventually warming up to a growing “gay-friendly” culture (promoted at every turn by the news and entertainment media), Americans abandoned their previous caution, flung their doors wide open and heartily welcomed the “gay rights” agenda with open arms.

However, it was a Trojan Horse. And most people had no idea what lay in waiting.

Today – as documented in October’s groundbreaking Whistleblower issue, titled “THE NEW SEXUAL REVOLUTION” – a new totalitarian order is sweeping the land.

Parts of this burgeoning totalitarianism are already evident – like legislation that flat-out prohibits counseling help for minors who want to overcome unwanted same-sex attractions; the prosecution and criminalization of ever-larger numbers of Christian businesspeople for simply declining to promote homosexuality on moral and religious grounds; the new California law decreeing that boys must be allowed to use girls’ restrooms and locker rooms if they identify with the opposite sex, and vice versa; forced integration of open homosexuals into the military; and the imposition on the nation of homosexual marriage.

Transsexuals Need Christ, NOT “Sex Change” Surgery

Recently I had the pleasure of doing an in-depth, four-part radio interview with Walt Heyer, a Christian man and FORMER transsexual who once lived as a “woman” named “Laura” (see before-and-after photos above).  Walt had the Gender Reassignment Surgery – yes, the one that makes men wince at the mere thought of it.  (It is frequently called a “sex-change” operation even though, as Walt stresses, a person cannot change their biological sex.)

Walt discovered too late that finally “becoming Laura,” as it were, through a body-disfiguring operation didn’t solve his severe “gender” problem.  But thank God he ultimately DID find healing through the grace of the Lord — who labored through faithful and loving Christians who stood by Walt and helped restore him to the man he was created to be.  Now Walt has dedicated the rest of his life to helping others avoid this awful surgery and the “sex-change regret” that he had; instead, he directs them to the healthy CHANGE available through Jesus Christ.

Walt Heyer as “Laura,” his former fantasy-female identity. Heyer underwent radical “gender reassignment surgery” but now warns others not to undergo the disfiguring operation.
