Friday, June 12th, 2015
Bruce_Jenner_Turned_Caitlyn

Call Him Confused: At AFTAH, we cannot call Bruce Jenner “Caitlyn.” A biological man can no more become a “woman” than a he can become a tree. Pray for Bruce Jenner.

The following statement was given to LifeSiteNews for its June 2, 2015 article on Bruce Jenner’s (Photo-shopped) Vanity Fair “coming” out as “Caitlyn”

“Like many millions of Americans and people all over the world, I am filled with pity for Bruce Jenner over his supposed transformation from man to ‘woman’– which of course is happening only in his own desperately confused mind.

“The media propaganda blitz in support of Jenner as the poster boy–I cannot say ‘girl’– for the radical ‘transgender’ agenda is only just beginning. Like so many Americans, I’m sick and tired of being lied to by the media–and called a hater and a bigot if we disagree with this insanity.

“The ‘Pronoun Police’ will be out in force as Americans will be told over and over again that Bruce Jenner is a ‘she.’ Such politically correct pretending engenders mass-lying, and will only draw more gender-confused young people into the same hopeless quest as Jenner and other DNA deniers to reject and change their God-given sex.

“If Christians can’t get engaged on the side of Truth in the Culture War now, then America will continue to descend into moral chaos.”

Transgender Bruce Jenner’s Interview with Diane Sawyer Will Continue to Open Immoral Doors

Friday, April 24th, 2015

“I Feel, Therefore I Am” — This sums up the philosophy of both the homosexual and “transgender” movements. But reality is more important than confused or rebellious feelings, and the objective reality is that God made Bruce Jenner a man, and he can never become a woman. Pray for Mr. Jenner.

MADISON, Wis., April 24, 2015 /Christian Newswire/ — Bruce Jenner’s interview with Diane Sawyer on 20/20 will be glorified by the LGBTQ movement. The interview will be on Friday, April 24.

In 2003, 4 WINDS was the only Christian sports ministry publicly taking on the International Olympic Committee (IOC) for allowing transgenders in the Olympics. The IOC effort passed smoothly.

“We knew this would create a problem down the road,” says 4 WINDS President Steve McConkey. “The problem now is even greater than we thought it would be. You now have thirty-three state high school associations allowing transgender athletes on their high school teams. It will only get worse.”

During the last two years, 4 WINDS voiced their concerns when the IOC and the United States Olympic Committee pushed their LGBTQ non-discrimination policies.

“If an athlete is in a church and they voice their view on homosexuality, what are the consequences?” states Steve McConkey. “Free speech is free because the government and sports associations do not have the right to dictate how a person believes. Biblical values are non-negotiable on major doctrines and morals.”

The decline in morals in the USA can be attributed to Christians not knowing how to defend their faith. Christians need to pray and freely voice their concerns.

4 WINDS hopes that those who are in error would come to know Jesus Christ as Savior. The only hope man has is through the cross of Christ. Please contact 4 WINDS for further information.

VIDEO: ‘Gay Journalists’ Group NLGJA Auctions Off Male Stripper at Fundraiser – Then Blocks Video Coverage of it

Thursday, April 23rd, 2015

Folks, this video by my friend Cliff Kincaid of America’s Survival is priceless: a supposedly professional “gay journalists” group, NLGJA, shuts down the videotaping of it auctioning off a male “Chippendales” stripper at the group’s annual New York City fundraiser. Clearly, NLGJA (National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association) leaders cared more about mitigating an embarrassing “PR crisis” than granting reportorial access to their event. Strange, but revealing: it seems a bit of appropriate shame dampened their “gay pride.” You can also watch it on YouTube— Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH.org

PS. AFTAH and America’s Survival have led the way in exposing the NLGJA–which is funded by major media corporations including Fox News–as a highly politicized, pro-homosexual activist organization, as demonstrated by Cliff’s observation about the group’s biased “definition” of “ex-gay” (which it puts in quotes; see graphic below or go HERE). See my in-depth AS report on Fox News and the NLGJA. Cliff’s story follows the video:

Male Stripper Performs at Gay Journalists Event

By Cliff Kincaid, reprinted from America’s Survival, April 20, 2015

Their slogan is, “We’re here, we’re queer. We’re on deadline.” But on April 16th, when the National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA) held their 2015 “Headlines & Headliners” fundraiser in New York City, they were cheering a strip-tease performer from Chippendales.

Chippendales strippers usually perform for sex-starved women. This time the audience consisted of sex-starved gay men.

It was an eye-opening experience that included stars from CNN, MSNBC and Fox News. The emcee was Javier “Javi” Morgado, Executive Producer at CNN’s “New Day” program, who introduced the live auction of two VIP seats at the Las Vegas Chippendales show. He’s a former board member of the National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association. Tyson Beckford, who has joined Chippendales in Las Vegas as their celebrity guest host, participated in the live auction, encouraging higher bids.

I paid the $150 ticket price to get into the event. This isn’t the first time I had covered and filmed the event, and I never encountered any problems in the past. But this time the group told me to leave. My own video shows the confrontation.

The NLGJA puts "ex-gay" in quote marks in its tendentious "Stylebook" definition.

Just “journalists”? The NLGJA puts “ex-gay” in quote marks in its tendentious “Stylebook” guiding reporters, editors and producers on how to handle “gay”-related news.

The National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association is financed by all of the major media organizations, from MSNBC and CNN on the left to Fox News on the right. It has issued a “Stylebook” to advise news organizations on how to use “lesbian, gay, bisexual & transgender terminology.” For example, you are not supposed to use the term “ex-gay,” even though thousands of former homosexuals do exist. The gay “Stylebook” warns that the term “ex-gay” is “mostly rooted in conservative religions” and has been “generally discredited as therapy in scientific circles.”

That this is complete nonsense can be demonstrated by the well-known case of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s wife, Chirlane McCray. For years she publicly called herself a lesbian, even writing an essay titled, “I Am a Lesbian.” But she got married to de Blasio and has two kids. The gay “Stylebook” is why you rarely see interviews with ex-gays on the air. They are not supposed to exist.

The Absurdity of Transgenderism: A Stern but Necessary Critique

Thursday, March 12th, 2015

Like Anorexia? Transgendered (gender-confused) individuals like Bruce Jenner suffer from a mental disorder of “assumption”–says psychiatrist Dr. Paul McHugh–much like anorexics who, though unhealthily thin, believe they are “fat.” Click on graphic to enlarge.

The Absurdity of Transgenderism: A Stern but Necessary Critique

By Carlos D. Flores

We should make public policy and encourage social norms that reflect the truth about the human person and sexuality, not obfuscate the truth about such matters and sow the seeds of sexual confusion in future generations for years to come.

______________________________

By now we are all undoubtedly familiar with the tragic suicide of Joshua Alcorn, the transgender teenage boy who, in late December, walked onto a freeway with the intention of ending his life. In an apparent suicide note, Joshua cites a host of reasons for why he was led to end his life, most prominent of which were his parents’ attempts to discourage his identifying as a girl and his being sent to therapists in an attempt to relieve these feelings. All of the problems that ultimately culminated in his suicide, writes Joshua, stem from the fact that, from the time he was a small child, he felt like a “girl trapped in a boy’s body.”

No sooner had Joshua’s heart stopped beating than the story of his suicide was seized by LGBT activists and pruned to advance a familiar narrative of a sexual minority fighting cultural oppression. Joshua’s parents immediately began to be chided as “repressive” and “bigoted” and even began to receive various threats from LGBT internet crusader-activists.

Transgenderism and Gender Identity

I have not referred to Joshua by using female pronouns or by using his self-invented female name of “Leelah.” The reason I am not doing this is simple: Joshua was not a girl—he was a boy—and to address males with female pronouns or females with male pronouns is to contribute to our culture’s confusion about sexuality and the nature of the human person, which is literally leaving casualties in its wake. No amount of surgical mutilation of body parts, effeminate behaviors, or artificial female appearances can make a man a woman.

LGBT activists will respond in various ways to this. They might first respond by saying: “Okay, true enough: Joshua was biologically a male. But you have misunderstood our claim: we contend that his sex was male, yes, but his gender was female because he ‘identified’ as female.” The idea here is that people have a sex, which is either female or male and which one cannot choose. In addition to this, however, there is “gender,” or what sex one is more comfortable “identifying” as. The response to this is simple: Why think that what one “identifies as” is significant at all, especially to the extent that others should actively recognize or cater to such an identity, and especially when the identity one adopts is contrary to reality?

AFTAH Transgender Photo-Story – Bruce Jenner: Don’t Try to Become a Woman!

Wednesday, January 21st, 2015

LaBarbera to decathlete: “Biological men make really bad women” — as another role model embraces the LGBTQueer dark side 

[Jesus said:] “But from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.'” (Mark 10:6)

I was 14 in 1976 when Bruce Jenner became first American to win Olympic gold in the Decathlon–and the title of world’s best (amateur) athlete–so here is the triumphant picture I will always have of Jenner in my mind:

 

Bruce-Jenner-Decathlon-1976

 

For those middle aged like me, remember Jenner’s conquering images on the cover of Wheaties boxes?

 

Bruce-Jenner-wheaties-box

 

And so you can imagine my shock–and that of millions like me who grew up watching the masculine Jenner’s physical feats–that he is reportedly on his way to becoming a transgender “woman.” For the record, no matter what the LGBT-brainwashed media lemmings say, Jenner will ALWAYS be a “he.” He can never become a “woman.” The bottom line is: Biological males make really bad “women,” and vice versa. Anyway, the tabloid magazine In Touch Weekly got tired of waiting for Jenner’s “transgender coming out” and jumped the gun by putting this femmy, photoshopped version of Jenner on its cover:

 

Bruce_Jenner-cover-In_Touch_Mag-2

 

This was over the top, but who can blame the tabloids for going nuts on the Jenner “transgender” story? Who can blame them for seizing on the Nature-defying insanity of transgenderism– a prime example of mankind’s antics being “stranger than fiction,” as the saying goes. And as for the Left, just know that if you publicly dismiss all this gender-bending as so much decadence and nonsense, be careful as you might be labeled a “transphobe.” (The LGBTQueer movement fought to depathologize homosexuality and gender confusion; now they work to pathologize normalcy and its defenders.)
