LaBarbera Warns Parents on ‘Love, Simon’ Movie: Teach Your Kids to Trust God’s Word over Pro-‘Gay’ Feelings

AFTAH in the News: assails teen “coming out” film as product of decades of Hollywood pro-LGBTQ activism

The following is reprinted from One News Now, the news service of American Family Association. We’ll have more on this film, Love, Simon (view trailer below, after the jump), which represents the first major box office hit of a movie about a same-sex romance with a homosexual teenager as its lead character (played by actor Nick Robinson, who is straight).

I saw this film in the theater and it pushes all the right buttons for a generation already way over-exposed to anti-biblical messages celebrating All Things Gay & Trans. It’s a pretty effective piece of Hollywood propaganda that hits on some of the simplistic LGBTQ activist themes of recent decades–most importantly, that being “gay” is “who you are.” (No moral or spiritual counterpoint is presented.) Teens and adults should never accept that false premise, which posits sinful behavior as the basis for one’s identity and denies the possibility of wholesome change away from homosexuality.

A Trendy Romance? Be Wary, Parents

By Steve Jordahl, One News Now, March 19, 2018

Christian parents are being advised to be ready for a conversation with their children about a movie that opened this weekend that could have them talking.

Love, Simon (PG-13) is billed as a trendy romance – but in fact it’s the first “gay” romantic movie with a full-throated Hollywood marketing campaign. This movie was not made for LGBT audiences; instead, it’s a subtle message movie for the straight world:

From the movie trailer: “My name’s Simon. For the most part, my life is totally normal. I have a family that I actually like, and there’s my friends. So I’m just like you, except that I have one huge secret: nobody knows I’m gay.”

The story line focuses on how Simon “comes out,” or announces to the world that he’s gay. The characters are relatable, sympathetic, and loveable. The producers are hopeful audiences will yearn for Simon to be accepted and find his true love – and if data from the Barna Group and Impact 360 Institute is to be believed, many children from Christian homes are ready to get on board in today’s environment of moral relativism.

But Pete LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality warns young moviegoers to look closely. “If kids could see that this is the product of years and years and years of activism, [they’d understand] it’s not quite as innocent as it seems,” he tells OneNewNow.

LaBarbera, PeterHe advises parents, during that conversation with their children, to lean on God’s Word.

“We need to really go back to the Word of God and ask our children and their friends and everybody we talk to about this, Who are you going to trust? Are you going to trust this movement which is really built on feelings – or are you going to trust the Word of God.

And to those youngsters who truly love their gay friends, “you need to tell them Look, you can’t base your whole life, your destiny on feelings, because feelings lead people astray,” LaBarbera offers.

And he quotes a clear warning from Proverbs 14:12 – There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death. (NKJV)

“Thank the Lord,” LaBarbera writes, “that we can rise above the culture and its politically correct lies by trusting in God and his inerrant Word, the Bible.”

VIDEO: Former Disney CEO Michael Eisner Revealed that 40 Percent of Disney Employees Are ‘Gay’ – and That Was in 1998

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. See my accompanying LifeSiteNews blog post below, after the video and the jump. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

‘Frozen’ and Hollywood LGBTQ Propaganda – They Just Can’t ‘Let It Go’

Tuesday, October 11th, 2016

Folks, we’re catching up on “AFTAH in the News” items. Here’s a story about the hit animated movie “Frozen” from back in May by Charlie Butts and Billy Davis of AFA’s One News Now–featuring AFTAH commenting on the pro-homosexual/-transgender lobby’s fanatical drive to use Hollywood to normalize their deviancies.

Isn’t it interesting that even though LGBTQ characters are over represented on film and TV relative to the homosexual population, “gay” and now “transgender” activists still play the victim card and demand MORE homosexual and gender-confused characters!

We must resist LGBT pressure campaigns like this and stop merely “taking it” from the aggressive Left, because due to ubiquitous pro-“queer” (their word) propaganda, impressionable kids are more confused about sex and gender than ever. – – Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH.org

LGBT Activists Just Can’t ‘Let It Go’

Elsa and "Frozen"“He’s craaazy,” Olaf the Snowman declared in the Disney’s hit film Frozen.

Olaf could have been talking about homosexual activists instead of an iceman talking to rocks.

“It’s about time that parents start doing something to combat this,” pro-family advocate Peter LaBarbera says of the social media push to involve homosexuality in a Frozen sequel.

LaBarbera is responding to the effort that began May 2, when a Twitter campaign took off with the hash tag “#GiveElsaAGirlfriend.”

LaBarbera, Peter “Elsa” is the lead character inFrozen, which became another Disney hit in 2013 and earned more than one billion dollars at the box office. A sequel is being planned, Disney announced in March.

“We cannot keep rewarding Hollywood,” LaBarbera says, “when they’re pushing homosexuality, and sexual and gender deviance, on the kids.”

This interview with America’s Survival President Cliff Kincaid aired on AS’s Roku channel April 24, 2014. In discussing homosexuality and pedophilia, Kincaid references a video by homosexual Walter Lee Hampton complaining about seeing so many homosexual men in thir 30’s, 40’s and even 50’s in sexual relationships with minor boys [go HERE to view]. At about 17:45 the discussion shifts to LaBarbera recounting his run-in with Canada’s homosexuality-affirming “hate” politics, culminating in his arrest for protesting peacefully with Bill Whatcott at University of Regina, in Satchatchewan. [Go HERE to watch this on YouTube.] America’s Survival writes:

Pedophiles Exposed! Peter LaBarbera on Gay Media Power

The mother of the alleged victim of a powerful Hollywood pedophile ring says she tried for years to interest the media in the story. Michael Egan’s mother Bonnie Mound said, “I wrote every news channel, every magazine, every talk show host, everybody, from Oprah to ‘20/20‘ to ‘60 Minutes‘…. Nobody wanted to do anything because of the high-profile people involved.” Although Egan attorney Jeff Herman said the suits are not about homosexuality, but rather pedophilia and child abuse, Peter LaBarbera of the group Americans for Truth notes that the founder of the modern gay rights movement, Harry Hay, was a communist who supported the North American Man-Boy Love Association (NAMBLA). LaBarbera was recently arrested and jailed in Canada for distributing pro-family values literature on the campus of the University of Regina in Saskatchewan, Canada.
