‘Pink Swastika’ Author Scott Lively to Speak for AFTAH Friday, October 14

Pro-family veteran to receive 2011 AFTAH “American Truth Teller” award

Scott Lively, author of "The Pink Swastika," has been targeted and lied about by homosexual militants for years because he defends God's truth about the changeable sin of homosexuality. He speaks for AFTAH Friday, Oct. 14 at 7:00 PM at Grace Gospel Church in Bensenville, IL, located on Route 83 just north of I-290. The Friday event is FREE. Lively also will be honored at the AFTAH dinner-banquet the next day (Sat., Oct. 15, 6:00 PM) at Christian Liberty Academy; tickets for the banquet are just $10/person, $20 at the door.

Dear AFTAH Supporters,

I’m delighted to announce that a man I greatly admire — Christian pro-family veteran and “Pink Swastika” author Scott Lively — has agreed to give a separate talk for Americans For Truth on Friday, Oct. 14, at Grace Gospel Fellowship church in Bensenville.  That’s the day before AFTAH’s Sat., Oct. 15 banquet with Moody senior pastor Dr. Erwin Lutzer.  

At the Sat., Oct. 15 banquet, I will present Scott with the 2011 “American Truth Teller” award for his decades of dedicated service in opposing the Homosexual Lobby and educating the public on the threat of the organized Homosexuality (“Gay”) movement — which, as he writes below, “is not about tolerance but control.”  It simply was “cruel and unusual punishment” to give Scott just 10 minutes to speak at the banquet, so he graciously agreed to give a talk Friday night, which will also raise much-needed funds for AFTAH.

FRIDAY, Oct. 14 EVENT: Scott’s presentation will be held Friday Oct. 14 at 7:00 PM, at Grace Gospel Fellowship church in Bensenville, Illinois – pastored by my friend and awesome Culture Warrior John Kirkwood (go HERE listen to Part One of my AFTAH interview with John).  The church is located on Route 83 just north of I-290 (4 North 220 Route 83 – Frontage Rd., Bensenville, IL; phone #: 630-834-0550).  The Friday event is FREE (there is no dinner), but we will take up a collection to support AFTAH’s critical work. E-mail us at [email protected] to RSVP or if you have any questions.

BANQUET SAT., Oct 15th: The AFTAH dinner-banquet with Dr. Lutzer is shaping up to be a spectacular night of truth-telling that will get your pro-family batteries charged for another year!  In addition to Dr. Lutzer, who is revered across the nation but especially in the Midwest for his faithful Bible preaching, you will meet Walt Heyer, a FORMER transsexual who returned to his God-given male identity with the Lord’s help.  Walt once identified as “Laura,” and went through a body-disfiguring “sex-change” operation, but now he is reaching out at www.SexChangeRegret.com to gender-confused people with the message: “Don’t make my mistake!”  I’m so excited to meet Walt after my extended AFTAH interview with him (go HERE for the Part 4 of the interview). 

Lastly, we will hear from Truth-Teller Award recipient Scott Lively, who — like myself and AFTAH — has been the target of incredible, ongoing vilification by homosexual militants due to his desire to stand without compromise for God’s Truth about same-sex sin.  Thank you so much for your support, and please tell your friends about both Americans For Truth events!  Remember, we priced the banquet at just $10 (dinner included) because we know these are tough times and I want you and your family to be blessed by this special evening!

– Peter LaBarbera, www.aftah.org

Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love. (1 Corinthians 16:13-14)

AFTAH Dinner-Lecture June 17: Ex-Lesbian Linda Jernigan to Speak on ‘What’s Wrong with Gay Pride’

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

Come out Friday, June 17, 2011 to hear a wonderful testimony of God’s power to change people!

 NOTE TO AFTAH SUPPORTERS: We’ve been trying to get ex-lesbian Linda Jernigan — a dynamite speaker wth a heart-warming Christian testimony — to AFTAH for a year, and it looks like it is finally going to happen!  This talk was planned for a year ago, but Linda was called away on an emergency, and we never rescheduled it.  We apologize for the (long) delay, but are thrilled that Linda will be with us to speak to one of the modern myths taking hold in America: that homosexuality is inherent and even something to be “proud” of.  If you live in Chicagoland, come out to hear Linda tell her life story; you will not regret coming!

Linda will also speak on a new Illinois project that AFTAH  is supporting: the Illinois Defense of Marriage Initiative (IDMI), which would put a Advisory Referendum on the ballot in 2012 in support of marriage as it really is: betweeen a man and a woman. See www.DefendMarriageIL.org or more details. — Peter LaBarbera, www.aftah.org
Former lesbian Linda Jernigan (right) presents on “What’s wrong with ‘Gay Pride.” Jernigan, a Christian evangelist (www.rescuinghomosexuals.net), is now 11 years “out” of the homosexual lifestyle. She will share from her life experiences, which include being seduced into the lesbian lifestyle as a preteen by an older woman who was supposed to be her “mentor.”
  • Who: Linda Jernigan, ex-lesbian, founder of www.rescuinghomosexuals.net
  • Time: Friday, June 17, 2011 6:00-9:00 PM;
  • Location:Americans For Truth offices at 25W560 Geneva Rd., Carol Stream, IL (just west of the intersection of Gary and Geneva Rds. in Carol Stream). Park in the rear of the building.

AFTAH Interview with Dr. Michael Brown – Part Four

Saturday, May 21st, 2011

“A Queer Thing” author assails Andrew Marin’s flawed biblical exegesis

Dr. Michael Brown, author of "A Queer Thing Happened to America," says true biblical love cannot bury the truth that homosexual behavior and relationships are sinful.

This is the fourth and final part of AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera’s interview with Dr. Michael Brown, author of “A Queer Thing Happened to America.”  This aired May 14, 2011. [Click HERE to listen.] Brown, director of Coalition of Conscience, and LaBarbera discuss the proper approach of telling the “truth in love” to people practicing homosexuality. Brown espouses a “Reach Out and Resist” approach of lovingly reaching out to homosexuals with the Gospel while steadfastly resisting the agenda to normalize homosexual, bisexual and transgender behavior through the law and culture.

When asked about controversial pro-“gay” Grove City College professor Warren Throckmorton and others who support “civil unions” and pro-homosexual “sexual orientation” laws as an alleged outworking of Christian compassion, Brown says faithful Christians cannot support the idea of legal “civil rights” based on sinful behavior.  He assails the non-biblical approach of “Love Is An Orientation” author Andrew Marin, a liberal Chicago evangelical living in Boystown who seems reluctant to affirm clear Scriptural teachings that homosexual behavior is always sinful. Brown also prays for “Chaz” Bono, the daughter (Chastity) of Sonny and Cher who has gained immense sympathetic media attention surrounding her tragic quest to become a “man.”

Special “A Queer Thing” Offer: Michael Brown’s book “A Queer Thing Happened to America” is available through AFTAH at a discount price fo $25 (including shipping and postage). Make a $25 gift online at www.americansfortruth.com/donate/; or mail your $25 donation requesting the book to: AFTAH, PO Box 5522, Naperville, IL 60567-5522.

An Amazing Testimony – How God Transformed the Life of a Drag Queen ‘Star,’ Trace McNutt

Friday, April 15th, 2011

Trace McNutt before Christ: South Florida "drag" star "Coma."

On this, the homosexual activist “Day of Silence” in schools, we cannot remain silent about how God continues to help people out of the homosexual lifestyle — in this case, a former “drag queen” whose stage name was “Coma,” but whose actual name is Trace McNutt. Please take the time to watch all 11 short YouTube segments, and pass them on to your friends and family (especially those who have never seen an ex-homosexual testimony).

Here is the actual YouTube link to the 11-part testimony, which is available on a DVD titled, “God’s Relentless Pursuit of a FREAK, Drug-addicted Demonic Drag Queen” : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FQVFafhjkE4&feature=related [from there you can link to all 11 videos]. And here is Trace’s Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000053670230. His e-mail is [email protected]. Praise God and the Lord Jesus Christ that He continues to work miracles in the lives of sinners — “gay,” straight, and in-between! — Peter LaBarbera, www.aftah.org

You Won’t Believe Chili’s’ Radical ‘Gay Task Force’ Agenda

Wednesday, February 9th, 2011

From today’s AFTAH e-newsletter; go HERE for contact info for Chili’s and parent company Brinker International — which is a “National Corporate Partner” of the National Gay & Lesbian Task Force:

Dear Readers,

This is not just another e-mail about boycotting yet another irresponsible corporation.  It’s about educating the nation on the incredibly extreme and unhealthy agenda of the pro-Homosexuality-Bisexuality-Transsexuality Lobby — and holding company executives accountable for financing that agenda.  Last week in Minneapolis, I and a few other pro-family advocates went undercover at the annual “Creating Change” grassroots homosexual conference put on by the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force.  There were more than 2,000 LGBT activists in attendance!  Some of the “change” we heard advocated in the various workshops, and which we will document in the days and weeks ahead, was shocking.  Yet this agenda is one that the left-leaning media refuse to examine, much less expose. So AFTAH will do the media’s job for them by laying out the Gay Task Force’s extremist vision, which includes:

  • Taxpayer-financed “sex change” operations for transsexuals (not to do so is “discrimination” against “transgenders”);
  • Using polling, focus groups and emotional arguments to persuade evangelical Christians to ignore Scripture and accept homosexuality-based “rights”;
  • Using the tragedy of homosexual youth suicides to shame Christians into stop calling homosexuality sinful;
  • Celebrating sadomasochism (consensual sexual violence and degradation) and “kinky”/fetish sexual behaviors
  • Pro-homosexuality lessons for grade school kids (because waiting until middle school is too late to reach them); 
  • “Non-judgmental condom advocacy for young men in the name of HIV prevention — and even being non-judgmental in “safe sex” training when it comes to bizarre/disgusting “fetish” behaviors
  • Predicting not just a future “gay” president of the United States but also a “bi” and a “transgender” president! (I’ll withhold the jokes…);
  • “[F–k–g] with gender,” and celebrating bisexuality and “genderqueer” lifestyles (see this definition for latter: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genderqueer);
  • Using “gender identity” laws to pressure businesses to bend to the transgender agenda of “Gender-Neutral Restrooms” — to replace the old-fashioned variety with an “M” or an “F” on the door.

There is much, much more — the homosexual Task Force puts the “D” back in “Deviance,” that’s for sure.  Stay tuned as we lay out the “change” that this high-powered organization and “Friend of Barack Obama” is promoting for America — with help from Chilis restaurants, Wells Fargo, Southwest Airlines, and other major corporations.  God bless you and thanks for standing with us! — Peter LaBarbera, Americans For Truth, www.aftah.org; [email protected]
