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

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.

Bauer Slams Anti-Trumper Mitt Romney – Contrada Book Exposes His Pro-LGBT Record

January 2nd, 2019

Amy Contrada’s book “Mitt Romney’s Deception” exposes his long history of pro LGBT advocacy.

Social conservative Gary Bauer of American Values is more restrained than most conservative Republicans in his takedown of the opportunistic Mitt Romney, who took to the Trump-hating Washington Post on New Year’s Day to bash the President (see Bauer’s classy response below).

The craven now-Senator Romney becomes one of the biggest phony “conservatives” in a town full of phonies and hypocrites (on both the Left and Right).

My friend and pro-family writer Amy Contrada of MassResistance long ago exposed Romney’s very un-Mormon-like pro-homosexual record during his last, failed run for President. It’s a lot to read, but I highly recommend her book, Mitt Romney’s Deception: His Stealth Promotion of “Gay Rights” and “Gay Marriage” in Massachusetts, available on Amazon HERE. Or, you can buy two shorter e-books containing some of the same material:

Maybe if more Republicans paid a heavy price for selling out conservative, pro-family values like preserving natural marriage, the Party might pose an actual threat to Big LGBTQueer. — Peter LaBarbera, Americans For Truth; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

Here is Gary Bauer’s column:

Mitt’s Message

By Gary Bauer, January 2, 2019

The past two years have witnessed some of the most brutal political battles in modern American history. Leftists refused to accept the 2016 election results. They disrupted the inauguration. And the Deep State has been attempting to undermine the Trump presidency every day since he was elected.

Trump’s UN Ambassador Nominee Heather Nauert Celebrated GLAAD Homosexual Activist ‘Spirit Day,” Gay Newspaper Reports

January 1st, 2019

Heather Nauert, President Trump’s nominee for U.S. Ambassador to the U.N.

Folks, the following is an excerpt from a 2017 story in the Washington Blade, a newspaper for homosexuals, bisexuals and transgenders in the nation’s capital, regarding then-State Department spokesman and current Trump nominee for U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Heather Nauert.

Pro-LGBTQ activism and advocacy was a fixture of the Obama years, and social conservatives hoped it would stop under President Trump. Yet it persists, usually through official recognition of special LGBTQ activist “days” like this. Surely there are deep divisions within Trump’s foreign policy team, which by definition includes many Obama holdovers, on whether and how strongly the United States should engage in pro-homosexual/-bisexual/-transgender advocacy of this sort.

When I first heard of Nauert’s nomination, all I could think of was how bizarre it is that Nauert, just years from being a Fox News persona, would likely hold the same position as the esteemed Jeane Kirkpatrick, Reagan’s steely UN ambassador, who played a pivotal role in facing down Soviet aggression and ultimately the fall of Soviet communism. Try as I might, I cannot imagine Kirkpatrick donning purple and hawking a pro-homosexual “Spirit Day.” Let’s just leave it at that. (The event is organized by the anti-Christian LGBTQ leftist group GLAAD.)

If Nauert becomes one of the world’s most prominent international “gay/trans rights” advocates, it would be a significant betrayal of Trump’s electoral mandate and a great victory for the powerful leftist social forces pushing American-style immorality on the world. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH.org; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

State Department Spokesman Acknowledges Spirit Day

State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert on [Oct. 19, 2017] acknowledged a campaign that seeks to combat bullying.

Nauert at the beginning of a press briefing told reporters that “today, along with many of my colleagues here at the State Department, including members of the LGBTI community, in association with GLIFAA (a group that represents LGBT and intersex Foreign Service members), we are — many of us are wearing purple today to celebrate Spirit Day.”

“On Spirit Day, we speak out against bullying of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered and intersex persons and stand with LGBTI youth who disproportionally face bullying and harassment because of their identities,” she said.

Nauert — who was wearing purple — said LGBT and intersex people around the world “face increasing physical attacks, arbitrary arrests just because of who they are or who they love.”

Seven Things that Set Americans For Truth (AFTAH) Apart

December 31st, 2018

Dear AFTAH Readers,

‘Trans’ Radicals Learned from ‘Gay’ Radicals: The above “fist” graphic using the colors of “transgender pride” appeared on the Transgender Law Center’s website the day after Donald Trump’s presidential victory in 2016. Pro-family advocates err when they fail to link today’s “transgender” radicalism with the larger “Gay” revolution, which was ignited by the 1969 Stonewall Inn riots. Next year is the 50th anniversary of Stonewall, which birthed the “in your face” “gay” activism that has in the ensuing decades pressured and intimidated so many American institutions into accepting LGBTQueer perversions as normative–from the Boy Scouts of America to major Protestant “Christian” denominations. To donate safely online to AFTAH, go HERE, or mail your gift to: AFTAH, PO Box 5522, Naperville, IL 60567-5522.

I want to say a big Thank You to all who have supported Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) with your donations and prayers this year. I am deeply grateful for your support as it enables us to do our work of literally “telling the truth” about Big Homosexuality and radically “queer” (trans)gender ideology, which together are so destructive, especially to children and wayward teens. [To donate safely to AFTAH, go HERE.]

In a way, Americans For Truth is the conscience of the social conservative movement opposing the “LGBTQueer” Lobby, as we call it (it calls itself “Queer”). Here are seven things that set AFTAH apart from mainstream conservatives and even many pro-family advocates:

    1. We shoot straight and tell it like it is, defying political correctness even within the conservative and Christian movements. These days, many people on the Right feel free to criticize the downright nutty “transgender” movement but they’re reluctant and/or afraid to criticize its “gay” activist progenitor. They will stand up for victimized Christian bakers but have trouble answering the simple question: Is homosexuality a sin? Not AFTAH.
    2. We are principled and eschew the always-on-defense approach that has characterized the pro-family fight against Big LGBTQ. According to some, the only battle left is to preserve religious freedom. We get that, but it’s far too narrow and timid a mission. The aggressive, prideful and powerful LGBTQueer Sin Movement will settle for nothing short of Total Surrender (including curtailing people’s freedom to dissent, and to pursue healthy heterosexuality). Yet people on our side are always trying to appease Big Gay with one concession after another. The result of conservatives’ endless “Kvetch and Retreat” defeatism is that past LGBTQ victories like the Obama-assisted nationalization of homosexual “marriage” become normalized and accepted. [See AFTAH’s June 26th rally at the Supreme Court — see story HERE and video HERE — marking the 3-year anniversary of SCOTUS’ Obergefell ruling imposing “gay marriage” on the nation. Also, see the late Brian Fitzpatrick’s essay, “Gay Marriage and Distant Consequences.”]
    3. Timeless Truth: AFTAH is fighting “gay” advocacy in the Church, through the upcoming “God’s Voice” conference, Feb. 22-23 in Oklahoma City. To sign up for God’s Voice, go HERE.

      We are unashamedly Christian and biblical in our approach, recognizing that this is God’s Truth, not ours, to defend. AFTAH will never compromise on God’s Word, and we work hard to restore its moral authority in society. [We are playing a major role in the “God’s Voice” conference Feb. 22-23 in Oklahoma City–answering the deception of “LGBTQ-affirming Christianity.” Sign up to attend God’s Voice HERE.]

    4. AFTAH understands that the battle against the Lesbian-Gay-Bi-Trans-Queer agenda is first and foremost a moral issue; however, we recognize the importance of getting out inconvenient facts and making practical arguments [see no. 6]. Also, we accept the support of people of all religions, and no religion, who share our moral determination to stop normalizing sex-and-gender deviance in the culture.
    5. We are not afraid to hold accountable Republicans and conservatives who sell out God’s truth against homosexuality–or who cop out of this noble cause. AFTAH rejects the current Republican/Fox News/libertarian (“conservative-lite”) strategy of backing “gay conservatives” against homosexual liberals–it trivializes moral truth and readily capitulates to LGBTQ activist goals, having already contributed to rising support among Republicans for “gay marriage.”

A Year of Social Media Censorship and Harassment – Even a Frivolous FBI Visit Caused by a Lying ‘Gay’ Activist – for AFTAH in 2018

December 26th, 2018

The following was sent out Dec. 23 in the AFTAH e-newsletter:

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!

“Precious in the site of the Lord is the death of His godly ones.” (Psalm 116:15)

Using the FBI to Harass AFTAH: Adam Flanders, a homosexual activist and convicted sex offender, “reported” AFTAH’s president Peter LaBarbera to the FBI, leading to an October visit by an FBI agent to LaBarbera’s home. Flanders used the absurd and deceitful pretext that LaBarbera might harass or threaten him at his home in California. The agent told LaBarbera that he presumed the complaint was frivolous. To learn more about Flanders’ tactics and criminal past, click HERE.

We are coming to the end of another momentous year, and it has  been a strange, sad and yet hopeful one for me. Four people whom I loved went on to be with the Lord Jesus this year: my father, Pat LaBarbera; my best friend Brian Fitzpatrick (shown below at an Americans For Truth rally); and AFTAH benefactors Peter Huizenga and Ray Young–two of the finest Christian men God has given me the pleasure of knowing.

The Christ of Christ-mas was, in the final analysis, their hope. He is mine, too, and I hope He is yours. My dad–who was a great husband to my mom and father to me, my four sisters and my younger brother Jimmy–humbled himself and accepted Jesus as Savior very late in life. For that I will be eternally grateful.

My friend Brian, once an atheist, was born again in the Lord (John 3) on May 24, 1987 (he put that date on his license plate), and lived for Him from that point onward. Please share his Christian testimony in this blessed holy season. I will miss him but we’ll meet again!

Ray Young and Peter Huizenga were faithful Christian family men and  businessmen who put Christ first and never once even considered backing away from biblical Truth, in an age when so many find a way to do just that.

Brian Fitzpatrick, shown speaking at AFTAH’s rally at the Supreme Court June 26, marking the third anniversary of SCOTUS’ imposition of homosexuality-based “marriage” on the nation. Read Brian’s Christian testimony HERE.

In their honor but more in God’s honor, we at Americans For Truth press forward with our noble yet politically incorrect mission. This has been a very interesting year: AFTAH became a microcosm of the Left’s evil and homo-fascist “social media censorship” strategy designed to suffocate social conservatives in the Public Square. Heck, we even got a visit by the FBI! … read on:

  • Our Americans For Truth Facebook page was “unpublished” and then “erased” after leftist complaints. 
  • My personal Facebook page has twice been put on 30-day hold after a frivolous “hate violation.” (I’m currently still in FB “jail” but I will be “set free” Monday–oh boy, thanks Mark Zuckerberg!)
  • My Twitter page was blocked based on an absurd “hate” warning about a post showing a nasty, anal-sex-promoting “gay” activist giving his critics the finger.
  • Wasting the FBI’s Time & Resources: Flanders later complained to the FBI and they actually sent an agent to my home on Oct. 26!  The agent asked if I planned to harass or threaten Flanders in California. I said of course not, and alerted him to Flanders’ history of harassing conservatives with false “stalking” charges. The agent knew that the complaint was meritless but said the Bureau was obligated to check it out. The litigious Flanders is now threatening to sue me (and other social conservatives).

Despite all this, we at Americans For Truth keep on doing exactly what the LGBTQueer Lobby is trying to stop us from doing: speaking out in the media against a nefarious and revolutionary sexual agenda that threatens to silence Christian conservative speech even as it corrupts the hearts and minds of young children.

We’ll never quit, because the LGBTQ Lobby never quits, and because it’s God’s Truth, not ours. I echo what my friend the late Peter Huizenga told me, “I will never give up on God’s Truth.” I am not intimidated by this Sin Movement, which must be resisted aggressively, even as its errant followers need the love and forgiveness of Jesus. (AFTAH from its inception has boldly defended EX-“gays” like my brother in Christ, Stephen Black.)

Here is the AFTAH media page link, which contains only a portion of our many media appearances this year. Americans For Truth reached hundreds of thousands of people in 2018 — citizens hungry for someone to give it to them “straight,” unapologetically, about Big LGBTQueer.

These days, even many “conservatives” are afraid to oppose homosexuality–and the Republicans have nearly abandoned this crucial moral issue. But not AFTAH.

The Americans For Truth website is a go-to site for people all over the world who are looking for someone to communicate the “Truth About Homosexuality,” minus the LGBTQ Left’s and the media’s propaganda filters. (And believe me: we still have not gotten close to conveying the full depravity of the Lesbian-Gay-Bi-Trans-Queer agenda.)

Hark! the Herald Angels Sing

December 25th, 2018

“There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)

Hark! the herald angels sing,

Glory to the new-born King!
Peace on earth, and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconciled.”
Joyful, all ye nations, rise,
Join the triumph of the skies;
With th’ angelic host proclaim,
“Christ is born in Bethlehem.”
Hark! the herald angels sing,
“Glory to the new-born King!

Christ, by highest heaven adored:
Christ, the everlasting Lord;
Late in time behold him come,
Offspring of the favoured one.
Veiled in flesh, the Godhead see;
Hail, th’incarnate Deity:
Pleased, as man, with men to dwell,
Jesus, our Emmanuel!
Hark! the herald angels sing,
“Glory to the new-born King!

Hail! the heaven-born
Prince of peace!
Hail! the Son of Righteousness!
Light and life to all he brings,
Risen with healing in his wings
Mild he lays his glory by,
Born that man no more may die:
Born to raise the son of earth,
Born to give them second birth.
Hark! the herald angels sing,
“Glory to the new-born King!

VIDEOS: Good Morning America Celebrates ‘Drag Kid’ – ‘Desmond Is Amazing’ – Media Child Abuse?

December 21st, 2018

Dr. Brown notes Big LGBTQ silence as perverse “drag” culture is promoted to children

Liberals Love Gender Confusion: Instagram photo of 11-year-old “drag kid,” “Desmond Is Amazing,” aka Desmond Napoles. See the videos below of Desmond doing a “drag show” at a San Francisco “gay” club, and being celebrated (read: exploited) by ABC’s Good Morning America.

Folks, I can’t find the words to express my dismay at this, the latest cultural atrocity emanating from the immoral LGBTQueer movement. Our friend Dr. Michael Brown focuses below on the lack of “gay” activist criticism of the shocking spectacle of “Desmond Is Amazing,” aka Desmond Napoles. In future posts we will hone in on other disturbing factors, including:

1) the media’s activist role in uncritically ushering in ALL aspects of the gay/bi/trans agenda, no matter how radical, even sexualizing and corrupting young children; and

2) the role of “progressive” parents/enablers, including those in homosexual-led households, in foisting adult immoralities on the children in their care.

This poor boy is being abused and exploited by his own mom, in addition to countless other sexual “progressives.” Today’s liberalism is bad for kids because it seemingly has no moral boundaries.

America is becoming a very dark place, as large segments of our society collectively give God the finger, as it were. This is what a post-Christian society looks like after 50 years of “gay” revolution. (Next year is the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots in New York City that birthed modern homosexual activist radicalism.)

A terrific column by Dr. Brown follows after the jump and these two appalling videos: 1) A shameless puff piece on ABC’s recent “GMA Day” featuring the Napoles and some adult male “drag queens”; and 2) video of the boy doing a “drag” performance at a homosexual club in San Francisco as men throw and give dollar bills to him as he prances on stage!

No wonder so many nations don’t want to be like America anymore. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; @PeterLaBarbera

Drain Obama’s LGBTQ Swamp – Sen. Mike Lee Blocks Radical Lesbian Legal Activist Chai Feldblum at EEOC as ‘Threat to Marriage’

December 19th, 2018

UPDATE: VICTORY: LGBTQ legal activist and Obama appointee Chai Feldblum has stepped down from the EEOC, thanks to the principled tenacity of Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah). Please contact Sen. Lee (info below) and THANK HIM for taking action in defense of truth, natural marriage and religious and First Amendment liberty! 

‘Gay Rights’ Over Religious Freedom? Radical lesbian activist and EEOC Commissioner Chai Feldblum (first nominated by Obama) was curiously reappointed to the federal agency by President Trump last year. But her nomination is stalled due to a Senate block by conservative Utah Sen. Mike Lee (R). The above is a screenshot of Feldblum’s Twitter page blocking AFTAH’s Peter LaBarbera–commentary in red is ours–demonstrating her lack of impartiality. Click to enlarge.

We applaud Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) for putting a hold in the Senate on leftist lesbian legal activist Chai Feldblum, whom President Donald Trump foolishly reappointed to the federal EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) last December. AFTAH has followed Feldblum (an atheist) for many years and fought her back in 2009 when she was first appointed to the EEOC by Obama. By the way, she petulantly blocks me on Twitter, indicating her lack of impartiality and strong activist bias.

Feldblum argues that the battle between “gay rights” and religious liberties is a “zero-sum game” and that LGBTQ legal activists should and invariably will win those fights. I don’t know what Trump was thinking when he reappointed her. After all, he ran for office pledging to his base of evangelical Christian voters that he would ardently defend religious freedom. And “LGBTQ rights” is the Number One threat to freedom of conscience in America today. How about draining that Obama LGBTQ swamp, Mr. President?

Below is a column that Sen. Lee wrote back in February. Please support him by calling his office, and the two Senators representing your state. –Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

Take Action:

  1. Thank Sen. Lee, online HERE, or by calling his DC office: 202-224-5444. His Salt Lake City office number is 801-524-5933.
  2. Contact your own state’s U.S. Senators through the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121 and urge them to reject this anti-marriage sexual revolutionary at the EEOC.
  3. Contact the White House online HERE or by calling 202-456-1111. Urge President Trump to drain Obama’s federal LGBTQ swamp by withdrawing the (re)nomination of Obama appointee and LGBTQ legal crusader Chai Feldblum.

A Threat to Marriage from the EEOC

By Sen. Mike Lee, Feb. 9, 2018

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah)

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission may seem like an unlikely threat to religious liberty and the institution of marriage. After all, the federal agency was created to combat workplace discrimination by the Civil Rights Act of 1964. But sadly, the agency created to fight discrimination now threatens to discriminate itself; one nominee to the commission’s five-member board wants to use the federal agency’s power to undermine our nation’s founding principles.

Chai Feldblum was first nominated to the EEOC by President Barack Obama in 2009, but she was not confirmed by the Senate. In March 2010, President Obama skirted the Senate by seating Feldblum on the commission when Congress was in recess. The Senate ultimately confirmed Feldblum on a 54-41 vote during a lame-duck session in December of that year. Only two Republicans voted for Feldblum’s confirmation.
