Southwest Airlines Attempts to Disassociate Itself from ‘Gay Jesus’ Documentary, but Defends Sponsorship of Radical LGBTQ ‘Creating Change’ Conference

Friday, February 27th, 2015

LGBTQ Task Force gave “Leather Leadership” award to owner of Dallas homosexual bar that hosts monthly gathering for men who play-act as “dogs” in bizarre BDSM “puppy” fetish

The Leather Pride Movement: Men Play-acting as dogs.

Human Degradation 101–Men as “Dogs”–Celebrated by the LGBTQ Task Force: Men play-acting as dogs in the twisted world of BDSM (Bondage, Discipline, Sadism, Masochism). The above graphic (click to enlarge) is from the website of a homosexual “leather bar,” the Dallas Eagle, co-owned by Mark Frazier. The “DFW ” in “DFW Pups” stands for “Dallas-Ft. Worth.” The recent LGBTQ Task Force “Creating Change” conference honored Frazier with its “Leather Leadership” award [see p. 40 on the CC  program PDF]. Southwest Airlines (SWA) is a “National Corporate Partner” of the Task Force, which puts on Creating Change every year. So far SWA is refusing to distance itself from CC or the LGBTQ Task Force. Contact SWA HERE or by phone at 214-792-4000.

“We will not support Southwest or any sponsor of this conference until they apologize to all Christians and change their stance on this situation.  Southwest and other corporate businesses chose to support a segment of the U.S. population that comprises less than 2% while managing to offend no less than 20% of the population.” – Kim Eith, AFTAH Reader

Folks, we have heard back from a few of you who have contacted Southwest (and other major corporations) that sponsored a radical LGBTQ conference in Denver February 4-8. The “Creating Change” conference for homosexual, transgender and other sexual activists screened the documentary, “Corpus Christi: Playing with Redemption,” celebrating a play in which the Jesus Christ character is cast as a homosexual who once committed sodomy with Judas and who performs a homosexual “marriage” between two of his male “disciples” [see AFTAH story HERE].

Apparently, Southwest representatives are telling people that AFTAH gave out false information and that SWA did not (directly) sponsor the “Gay Jesus” documentary, only the larger “Creating Change” conference. This is a classic dodge, although it is also a tacit admission by SWA that the “Corpus Christi” documentary is highly offensive to people of faith.

Of course, as AFTAH wrote earlier, the blasphemous film was just one item in a conference filled with the celebration of extreme behaviors—ranging from “polyamory” (multiple-partner sexual unions); to “kink” (sadomasochism); to extreme gender confusion; to the “queering” of Christianity (including a talk on the “biblical case for same-sex marriage”). You can read for yourself the full “Creating Change 2015” program HERE.

AFTAH reader Kim Eith (read her excellent correspondence with SWA below) has it exactly right: “sponsorship of that conference equates to sponsorship of all activities occurring at that conference.” Southwest needs to own their role in the “Creating Change” event in all its perverseness–including “Creating Change’s” honoring of a sadomasochist (Mark Frazier), who owns a “gay leather bar” in Dallas that caters to a perversion known as “puppy play” (see graphic above). Below is one of those weird, nonjudgmental descriptions in left-biased Wikipedia of “Puppy Play”–a perversion which, by the way, I witnessed firsthand last year at the San Francisco “Dore Alley” street fair:

In puppy play, or dog play, at least one of the participants acts out canine mannerisms and behaviors, which is sometimes associated with leather culture. If there is a dominant role it can be taken by a “handler”, “trainer”, “master”, or in the case of someone who still identifies as canine, an “alpha”. If there is a submissive this may be considered by a “pup” or a “dog”. …Other elements rooted in BDSM play involve bondage and restriction with collars, leashes, cages, and hoods, the pups hands are often covered in mitts, both sexual and non-sexual services are requested, and “training” may take place in order to teach commands. [Wikipedia entry on “Animal Roleplay”]

Sick stuff, to be sure–and glorified by the same National LGBTQ Task Force that proudly screened the “homosexual Jesus” documentary. Sadly, Southwest Airlines, based in Dallas, has not even come close to apologizing for its role in this uber-perverse, Christianity-bashing conference. Do the execs at SWA think we’re stupid, that we can’t read? Do they even know what sort of radical “Change” is advocated at the Task Force conferences? We must keep up the pressure on Southwest, Comcast/NBC, Wells Fargo and the other sponsors [contact info HERE].

We are indebted to Kim Eith for her smart advocacy below. Please read this correspondence and contact Southwest Airlines yourself using the contact info above. Thank you. – Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; [email protected]

Kim Eith’s Letter of AFTAH Describing her Complaint to Southwest Airlines [SWA online contact form HERE]:

To whom it may concern,

My husband and I sent separate emails to Southwest today. We also cancelled an upcoming flight with this airline today. I called Southwest on this date and received this response from the lady I spoke to:  ” There has been a misunderstanding. A Southwest corporate officer informed us today that there has been false accusations about Southwest and the LGBTQ conference. Southwest did not sponsor the documentary or film shown at the conference.”  My reply; “Southwest is a corporate sponsor, which is clearly indicated on the Create Change LGBTQ conference materials and therefore, any sponsorship of that conference equates to sponsorship of all activities occurring at that conference.”

As we stated in our email, we will not support Southwest or any sponsor of this conference until they apologize to all Christians and change their stance on this situation.  Southwest and other corporate businesses chose to support a segment of the U.S. population that comprises less than 2% while managing to offend no less than 20% of the population. People’s sexual preferences are personal and while my love of my fellow citizens, family and friends is not based upon personal views and practices, I will not stand by and watch others attempt to obliterate my Christian values, and especially my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. This was absolutely vile and despicable.

Corporate Jesus-Bashing: Why Did Southwest Airlines, Wells Fargo, Comcast/NBC Fund LGBTQ ‘Creating Change’ Attack on Christ?

Tuesday, February 17th, 2015

It’s bad enough that homosexual activists are “Playing with Redemption”; must major corporations join them by funding this evil enterprise?

Brought to You by Southwest Airlines: The book cover to the blasphemous play "Corpus Christi," in which Jesus is portrayed as a homosexual who had a sexual relationship with Judas and who performs a "gay wedding" ceremony for two of his male disciples. Twice Dallas-based Southwest Airlines has financed LGBT events promoting a documentary that celebrates the "Corpus Christi" play. Call Southwest at 214-792-4000, or contact them online HERE.

This Jesus-Bashing “Art” Brought to You by Southwest Airlines and Comcast/NBC: The book cover to the blasphemous play “Corpus Christi,” in which Jesus is portrayed as a homosexual who had a sexual relationship with Judas and who performs a “gay wedding” ceremony for two of his male disciples (see graphic below). [See AFTAH story on Southwest’s sponsorship of the radical LGBTQ “Creating Change” 2015 conference held last week in Denver HERE.] Twice the Dallas-based SWA has financed LGBT events promoting a documentary that celebrates the “Corpus Christi” play. Call Southwest at 214-792-4000, or contact them online HERE.

TAKE ACTION: Please ask for a reply in writing from Southwest Airlines and other major corporate sponsors of the radical “Creating Change” conference that celebrated a blasphemous documentary portraying “Jesus Christ” as a homosexual who conducts a “gay marriage” between two of his disciples, and has a sexual history with Judas. If you get a reply, please pass it on to AFTAH at: [email protected]

Note: so far every time I have called a corporation to complain about its sponsorship of “Creating Change,” the person on the other end of the line was shocked that such funding went to such an extreme event. Act Now: Please take a few minutes out of your day to hold these corporations accountable! See previous AFTAH story on Creating Change 2015 HERE, and other related stories from past CC conferences at bottom. –Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH

Letter to Southwest Airlines from AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera:

Dear Southwest Airlines,

I’m writing to express my deep opposition to Southwest Airlines’ funding of and involvement with the homosexual “Creating Change” conference in Denver Feb 4-8–and your role of as a “National Partner” of the event’s sponsoring organization, the National LGBTQ Task Force.

As you can readily see from the Creating Change program [PDF HERE], this debauched event includes a screening of a documentary celebrating a play (“Corpus Christi”) that portrays Jesus Christ as a homosexual–who “marries” two of his male disciples. I have read the play and to call it blasphemous would be an understatement. Making “Jesus”–the Son of God and Savior of the world–a sexual sinner who performs a homosexuality-based “marriage” is an incredible affront to Christian believers everywhere–and decent people of other religions (or no religion) who reject hateful and twisted attacks on Christianity and the Bible.

Funding Perversion and Anti-Christian Bigotry: “National Corporate Partners” of the National LGBTQ Task Force: Comcast/NBC; Southwest Airlines; Hilton Worldwide; Office Depot; Wells Fargo; Showtime; and Grey Goose Vodka. Click on graphic to enlarge.

As a longtime Southwest customer, I am stunned that SWA continues to fund the LGBTQ Task Force despite its record of celebrating–not just anti-Christian bigotry like this film screening–but fringe perversions such as sadomasochism (“kink”) and “multiple-partner unions.” There are also many offensive panels like “Queering Education” that would shock many of your customers. Did you know that the Creating Change conference gives an award every year to its favorite sadomasochist (the “Leather Leadership Award”)? Why is SWA associating itself with such extreme activities and even financing them with major corporate grants?

Did you vet this event? Do you think most SWA customers would support the Task Force’s radical agenda (which includes sessions dedicated to undermining the historic biblical understanding that homosexual acts are sinful)? Did you know that this year’s CC event includes a film celebrating a grotesquely distorted portrayal of Jesus Christ Himself as a homosexual who has “gay” sex, gets drunk and conducts “gay marriages”?

I believe Southwest owes an apology to faithful Christians everywhere for helping to make this event happen. At the very minimum you should adopt a NEUTRAL approach toward giving on the issues of homosexuality, transgenderism and “gay marriage”–rather than fund only PRO-“gay” and PRO-“transgender” organizations and events. Thank you for considering this letter.

Peter LaBarbera,

Southwest Airlines, Comcast, Office Depot Sponsor Homosexual ‘Creating Change’ Conference Featuring ‘Gay Jesus’ Documentary ‘Corpus Christi: Playing with Redemption”

Thursday, February 5th, 2015

Office Depot, Wells Fargo, Hilton big sponsors of LGBTQ Task Force gathering that promotes sadomasochism, multiple-partner unions, abortion and radical transgender agendas

j;alsjdfl;kasdj

A Homosexual Activist “Plays” with God’s Redemption Plan: This photo is taken from a promotional video trailer for the documentary “Corpus Christi: Playing with Redemption,” which follows around and celebrates the highly controversial play “Corpus Christi.” In the original play, the Jesus Christ character (Joshua) is cast as a homosexual who in his youth engages in homosexual sex with Judas. In the scene above, Joshua “marries” two of his male “disciples,” James and Bartholomew, shown kissing. AFTAH has blocked the deviant kiss in this screen shot. Click to enlarge.

By Peter LaBarbera  [Story in Progress…]

Southwest Airlines is among the major corporate sponsors of the 2015 “Creating Change” conference, an annual event drawing thousands of homosexual, bisexual, transgender, “queer” and “kink” (sadomasochistic) activists from across the country. The massive gathering of LGBTQueer activists opens today in Denver and includes a screening of a documentary film celebrating a “gay”-authored play casting “Jesus” as a homosexual.

The documentary, “Corpus Christi: Playing with Redemption,” celebrates the 1998 play “Corpus Christi,” by homosexual playwright Terrence McNally, in which “Joshua,” representing Jesus Christ, is cast as a homosexual who as a teenager had homosexual sex  with Judas (who later becomes his traitorous “disciple”).

In the play, Jesus (Joshua) also conducts a homosexual “marriage” between two of his other “disciples,” James and Bartholomew, and he rebukes religious leaders who say homosexual behavior is sinful. Those who oppose homosexuality and the proudly “queer” Joshua are cast as pharisaical haters, and Jesus (Joshua) is crucified as “King of the Queers” rather than the “King of the Jews,” as in Scripture. The play describes all the disciples (i.e, mankind) as “divine,” while Jesus as worldly. Here is an excerpt from the written play where Joshua (Jesus) “marries” James and Bartholomew:

Joshua: It is good when two men love as James and Bartholomew do and we recognize their union….Now take each other’s hand. Love each other in sickness and health. Respect the divinity in your partner, Bartholomew….I bless this marriage in Your name, Father. Amen. Now let’s all get very, very drunk.

Bartholomew: You are truly the Messiah, son of the living God.

[Note: I have seen neither the play nor the documentary, but I have read the full play by McNally–more excerpts of which are provided at below.–PL]

McNally’s original play–which has been labelled “gay hate speech” by Catholic advocate Bill Donohue— naturally and deservedly has been engulfed in controversy and protests at its showings over the last 17 years. This is not the first time that Southwest Airlines has helped fund a “gay” event where Corpus Christi: Playing with Redemption, was screened. In 2013, Southwest helped sponsor “Reelings 31,” a homosexual film festival in Chicago where the homosexual-Jesus documentary was shown.

Creating Change: as extreme as it gets

Creating Change (CC) is the annual organizing project sponsored by the National LGBTQ Task Force (Q is for “Queer”)–formerly the National Lesbian and Gay Task Force. The leftist Task Force is easily the most radical major “gay” organization: CC includes sessions and caucuses on Polyamory, pansexuality, transgenderism, and sadomasochism.

Every year Creating Change organizers give out a “Leather Leadership” award to their favorite “leatherman”–this year Mark Frazier, former president of the National Leather Association and co-owner of a homosexual “leather bar” called the Dallas Eagle.  There are also sessions for pro-abortion activists.

Wells Fargo

Hilton Worldwide

Office Depot

Showtime

Grey Goose Vodka

Other CC sponsors: AARP, Kaiser Permanente, Gilead (maker of the HIV-prevention PReP drug Truvada), Pepsico, Gill Foundation, JPMorgan Chase, and Chipotle.

The following are a few of the radical workshop sessions and caucuses at Creating Change:

The Biblical Case for Same-Sex Marriage

The showing of the “gay-Jesus” documentary is part of the Task Force’s larger agenda of “re-writing” Christianity to accommodate homosexuality and gender confusion. Dozens of Creating Change workshops deal with the topic. On page 27 of the Creating Change program is a description of Corpus Christi: Playing with Redemption:

This is the entry for “Corpus Christi: Playing with Redemption,” a documentary that celebrates a play (Corpus Christi) that portrays Jesus Christ and his disciples as homosexuals and male lovers.

AFTAH: Southwest Airlines Funds Radical ‘Gay Task Force’ ‘Creating Change’ Conference Promoting Homosexual/Transgender Extremism and Abortion

Thursday, January 30th, 2014
Southwest

Southwest Airlines is a major sponsor of the National Gay & Lesbian Task Force’s “Creating Change” conference, which promotes: a radical “Sexual Freedom” agenda (including sadomasochism and “polyamory”);  the extreme “transgender” agenda; “gay christianity”; and abortion-on-demand.

TAKE ACTION: Contact Southwest Airlines through their online Contact Page — or call Customer Relations at 214-932-0333 (press #1). 

CHICAGO – Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) is exposing the radical corporate giving priorities of Southwest Airlines – including Southwest’s role as a major funder of the annual homosexual activist “Creating Change” conference put on by the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force (NGLTF).

Creating Change, which begins today in Houston, Texas, promotes: the “homosexualization” of Christianity; extreme transgender activism including laws allowing transgender “girls” and “women” (read: boys/men in dresses) to use female restrooms; pro-homosexual/transgender programs in schools (even for very young students); and sadomasochism.

Creating Change is the organizing event for more than 3,000 LGBT (lesbian, “gay,” bisexual and “transgender”) activists across the nation – with “how to” workshops on:

  • Redefining Christianity with pro-homosexual messaging. One Creating Change workshop , “Catholic Teaching and LGBT Justice: Good in Bed Together? God’s Truth!” is described as follows (emphasis added): “Use solid Catholic teaching, tradition and practice when advocating for the equality of same-sex love? Yes.…We will work interactively from your wisdom and lived experience and join it with the best of Catholic sexual ethics to craft a message that speaks powerfully to people in the ‘malleable middle.’ This is subversive work!”
  • Advancing the radical “transgender” agenda, including winning government (Obama-care)/insurance coverage for body-disfiguring “sex reassignment surgeries” and hormone therapies;
  • Promoting extreme agendas under the guise of “sexual freedom.”  As the euphemism for the radical, “anything goes” fringe of liberal sex politics, “Sexual Freedom” includes advocacy for: prostitution (“sex workers”); “polyamory” (multiple-partner sexual relationships); “kinky sex” (sadomasochism); pornography; sexual “swingers”; and opposing obscenity laws and public decency efforts, e.g., banning strip clubs in neighborhoods;
  • Defending abortion-on-demand, under the euphemism of “Reproductive Justice.”

Southwest took out a full-page ad in the Creating Change program with an accompanying letter (see pages 22-23) from Communications VP Linda Rutherford, who wrote, “Southwest Airlines is proud to support organizations like the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force.”
