HRC

These Are the Major Corporate Sponsors of the LGBTQ (“Queer”) Lobby Group Human Rights Campaign

Saturday, January 5th, 2019

Target Sides with the Hard Left: The corporate retailer Target is a top sponsor of Human Rights Campaign, which routinely demonizes people of faith who oppose homosexuality and extreme gender confusion (transgenderism) as immoral. HRC’s top legislative priority is the LGBTQ “Equality Act,” which would create federal “rights” based on changeable homosexual and transgender identification (read: behavior). This would be a massive departure from traditional civil rights law rooted in unchangeable skin color and ethnicity. Target has lost customers by stubbornly sticking to its policy of allowing biological male “transgenders” (men who think they are “women) to use its female restrooms. Contact Target at 800-440-0680 or online HERE.

The following are listed as the major corporate sponsors of the Human Rights Campaign, the world’s largest and most powerful Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Transgender-Queer (LGBTQueer) lobby group (as of Jan. 5, 2019). I suspect that every single one of these companies supports the federal “Equality Act” (a top HRC priority), which would add homosexuality and transgenderism as criteria for America’s Civil Rights law–thereby elevating “rights” based on sexual-and-gender perversion (and immorality) to noble civil rights status in the law. This would have a devastating impact on people and institutions of faith–and enhance the ability of LGBTQ activists to legally bully Cristians into supporting radical “gay” and “trans” agenda items like homosexuality-based “marriage” and transgender “rights.” We will update and enhance this list. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; @PeterLaBarbera

Smearing Christians and Moral Citizens as “Haters.” Like most LGBTQueer activist organizations and activists, Human Rights Campaign conflates opposition to its radical agenda with “hate.” Defending Judeo-Christian morality is not hate. However, intentionally mislabeling it such is indeed hateful. This graphic is taken from the HRC website; click on it to enlarge.

Loaded LGBTQ: Outgoing Human Rights Campaign President Chad Griffin to Leave Behind $500,000+ Salary

Thursday, November 15th, 2018

Gay-For-Pay….And Lots of It: Human Rights Campaign President Chad Griffin is stepping down, and saying good-bye to an annual salary in excess of half a million dollars ($507,000 in 2013). HRC, which funds almost exclusively Democratic candidates, spent $26 million in the midterm elections to advance pro-LGBTQ Democrats in six battleground states. The hard-left HRC receives fawning coverage from the media, which is now effectively a part of the LGBTQueer movement. Photo: HRC website.

Folks, I sent this email to pro-family activists after learning that Chad Griffin, the president of the world’s leading LGBTQ lobby group, Human Rights Campaign (HRC), is stepping down next year. Turns out there’s some resentment among grassroots “gay” activists at HRC’s enormous salaries and spending priorities (Griffin made $507,000 in 2013):

Wow, and we wonder why we’re losing: outgoing HRC President Chad Griffin was making $500,000/yr. plus benefits. (The same HRC spent a whopping $26 million in the midterms  influencing 6 battleground states, including AZ where it backed victorious self-declared “bisexual” Kyrsten Sinema.)

This email [below] is from a grassroots gay activist who is resentful toward HRC for sucking up all the gay donor $$$. It seems to me that the LGBTQueer lobby has created such a powerful money machine, including hundreds of millions of dollars extracted from pandering corporations, that it doesn’t even know how to spend it all. –Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH.org; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

FINALLY! – Human Rights Campaign President Chad “Rosa Parks” Griffin Steps Down

by Will Kohler

Via the AP (Take the article with a huge grain of salt)

Chad Griffin, the influential gay rights activist who helped turn the Human Rights Campaign into a powerful political force, announced Thursday that he is stepping down as the organization’s president.

Griffin informed staff at HRC of his decision to step down Thursday. Griffin hasn’t said what he plans to do next. He is expected to stay at HRC until the organization names a new president; that process could take several months.

A prolific fundraiser with deep political ties, Griffin probably will become one of the most sought after advisers for Democrats preparing to undertake White House campaigns.

Back2Stonewall.com has never been a big fan of the HRC or of Chad “Rosa Parks” Griffin both of whom have both taken the credit for work that many grassroots activists have done while sucking up all the money in the LGBT community by throwing garish galas and weekly money begs .  Griffin a very good friend of Bill and Hillary Clinton (Griffin worked for Bill as an Aide during his White House years) has been one on the highest overpaid ($500k + benefits a year) LGBT rights org presidents and one of the most ineffectual leaders the organization has ever had. 

We will assume there’ll be a farewell cocktail party forthwith?….

 

VIDEO: Kincaid Interviews LaBarbera on ‘Disastrous’ Midterms – LGBTQ ‘Rainbow Wave’ Ushers in Scores of Homosexual, Transgender Lawmakers

Supposedly “moderate” open bisexual Democrat Kyrsten Sinema joins re-elected Wisconsin lesbian Tammy Baldwin in Senate

Folks, here is an interview I did with my friend and America’s Survival Inc. founder and CEO Cliff Kincaid. Social conservatives can never move forward and gain ground unless we are first honest about where we stand in the political and cultural universe. And, as Cliff points out, we are hurting. President Trump proclaimed the midterm elections a victory, but in many respects they were a disaster–especially for social conservatives who oppose the anti-Christian, anti-liberty agenda of Big LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer).

I appreciate how Cliff is fearless and does not slavishly echo the Republican Party line, or in this case the Fox News line [see his piece on the election HERE]. More sober analysts like Cliff and City Journal are describing the huge loses in once-safe-Republican suburbs where pro-LGBTQ, pro-abortion Democrats made big gains. (One is my own county, DuPage, west of Chicago, where Rep. Peter Roskam lost to social leftist Sean Casten.) And one reason for that is many “conservative” Republicans are no longer fighting for truth on these socials issues as they once did, or at least they are allowing the Democrats and the Left to put them on the defensive on moral issues.

The case of Arizona’s Senate seat–won by open “bisexual” Democrat Kyrsten Sinema–is illustrative of the Republicans’ Culture War defeatism. Start listening at 4:45 below. I just heard Fox News anchor Bret Baier yesterday refer to now-Senator-elect Sinema as a “moderate.” Really? A bisexual, irreligious Democrat endorsed by Planned Parenthood and championed by the Human Wrongs Rights Campaign (HRC)–the world’s most powerful homosexual-bisexual-transgender-“queer” lobby organization–a “moderate”? What is going on here?

We need to face some hard facts: read this New York Times piece on the midterms’ “Rainbow Wave”; and this celebratory press release by HRC, which reportedly spent $26 million to influence six battleground state races; and see the Gay & Lesbian Victory Institute crowing about how many openly LGBTQ candidates won on Nov. 6. And then there’s the 2-1 landslide defeat of pro-family forces trying to turn back the “transgender” tide in Massachusetts; see our friend Brian Camenker’s and MassResistance’s analysis of that debacle HERE. — 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.

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). Full details HERE. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH

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.

VIDEO: Pro-HB2 Ad in North Carolina Says Law Is About Protecting Privacy of Young Women and Girls

Friday, October 7th, 2016

The following TV ad was created by the Institute for Faith and Family (IFF), one of a coalition of North Carolina groups working to preserve HB 2, a state law that overrides a “gender identity” ordinance passed by the city of Charlotte that allowed biological men and boys to occupy female restrooms and locker rooms if they perceive themselves to be female. IFF is raising funds to run ads like this across the state to change the pro-LGBTQ narrative favored by most media that HB2 is merely about “discrimination” and “hate” [more after jump]:

Tami Fitzgerald, the director of IFF, issued the following statement in conjunction with the ad buy, according to the Raleigh News & Observer:

“The bullying and extortion leveled against the State of North Carolina by out-of-state businesses who are under investigation for wrongdoing like Deutsche Bank and Wells Fargo and by hypocritical sports organizations that separate sports teams according to biological sex like the NBA, the NCAA, the ACC over a common-sense law that simply keeps men out of women’s bathrooms, showers and locker rooms has intentionally distorted the truth, and the Institute felt it was time to set the record straight about HB2.”

Richmond’s Catholic Bishop DiLorenzo Reaffirms Church Teachings on Marriage after Sen. Tim Kaine Says Church Will One Day Accept Homosexual ‘Marriage’

Thursday, September 15th, 2016
tim_kaine_hrc_speech_2016

Democratic vice-presidential candidate and former Virginia governor Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) addressed the Human Rights Campaign national dinner September 10, 2016. Kaine, who calls himself a “devout” Catholic, said he believes the Catholic Church will one day embrace homosexual “marriage”–a claim rejected by his own bishop three days after Kaine’s HRC speech (see statement below).

The following statement was released by the Roman Catholic Bishop Francis X. DiLorenzo of the Diocese of Richmond, Virginia–after self-described “devout” Catholic. Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Virginia), the Democratic vice-presidential candidate, said that he believes the Catholic Church will one day recognize homosexual “marriage.” Sen. Kaine made the comment in a campaign speech September 10, 2016 at the Human Rights Campaign, the world’s largest and best-funded homosexual-bisexual-transgender lobby organization.

__________________

For Immediate Release: September 13, 2016

Bishop Francis X. DiLorenzo Statement on
The Catholic Church’s Teaching Regarding Marriage

“More than a year after the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling on marriage, and despite recent statements from the campaign trail, the Catholic Church’s 2000-year-old teaching to the truth about what constitutes marriage remains unchanged and resolute.

“As Catholics, we believe, all humans warrant dignity and deserve love and respect, and unjust discrimination is always wrong. Our understanding of marriage, however, is a matter of justice and fidelity to our Creator’s original design. Marriage is the only institution uniting one man and one woman with each other and with any child who comes from their union. Redefining marriage furthers no one’s rights, least of all those of children, who should not purposely be deprived of the right to be nurtured and loved by a mother and a father.

“We call on Catholics and all those concerned for preserving this sacred union to unite in prayer, to live and speak out with compassion and charity about the true nature of marriage – the heart of family life.”

It’s Not Just About Bathrooms: Why My Family Won’t Be Shopping at Target Stores Anymore

Monday, May 2nd, 2016

In addition to allowing men in female restrooms, Target backs radical LGBT “Equality Act”; boasts 100% perfect score on HRC’s rigged “Corporate Equality Index”

target-3Folks, today I sent the following letter to Target using their online Contact Form. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH

TAKE ACTION: Contact Target at 800-440-0680 or using their Online Contact Form; and sign the AFA “Boycott Target” petition if you plan to join the boycott. If you do, make a point of going into your local Target store or calling the manager to explain why you and your family will no longer shop there.

TARGET: 100% Pro-Homosexual-Transgender Agenda: Target boasts online of its “perfect” ranking on HRC’s rigged “Corporate Equality Index.” The biased LGBT “Index” punishes corporations for giving to pro-family causes–and rewards them for funding “gay” and “transgender” groups and events. This graphic is taken directly from the Target website.

Why My Family Won’t Be Shopping at Target Stores Anymore

May 2, 2016

By Peter LaBarbera

WARNING: offensive descriptions of horrifying transsexual “sex reassignment surgeries”

Dear Target,

My family and I are joining the Target boycott and will no longer shop at your stores. It is preposterous that all Target stores now allow men to use female restrooms—a sex predator’s dream. Girls have the basic right not to have their private spaces invaded by men, for ANY reason.

My family has done a LOT of shopping at Target over the years, but no more. One of my five children even worked at Target–but now I will not allow my two teenage kids to apply for a job there given Target’s leftist, politically correct corporate policies. Target has chosen to be contemptuous of common sense and Americans who are motivated by faith, decency and traditional morality. So we in turn choose to no longer support Target with our consumer dollars.
