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

Saturday, 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.

Loaded LGBTQ: Outgoing Human Rights Campaign President Chad Griffin to Leave Behind $500,000+ Salary

Thursday, November 15th, 2018

Gay-For-Pay….And Lots of It: Human Rights Campaign President Chad Griffin is stepping down, and saying good-bye to an annual salary in excess of half a million dollars ($507,000 in 2013). HRC, which funds almost exclusively Democratic candidates, spent $26 million in the midterm elections to advance pro-LGBTQ Democrats in six battleground states. The hard-left HRC receives fawning coverage from the media, which is now effectively a part of the LGBTQueer movement. Photo: HRC website.

Folks, I sent this email to pro-family activists after learning that Chad Griffin, the president of the world’s leading LGBTQ lobby group, Human Rights Campaign (HRC), is stepping down next year. Turns out there’s some resentment among grassroots “gay” activists at HRC’s enormous salaries and spending priorities (Griffin made $507,000 in 2013):

Wow, and we wonder why we’re losing: outgoing HRC President Chad Griffin was making $500,000/yr. plus benefits. (The same HRC spent a whopping $26 million in the midterms  influencing 6 battleground states, including AZ where it backed victorious self-declared “bisexual” Kyrsten Sinema.)

This email [below] is from a grassroots gay activist who is resentful toward HRC for sucking up all the gay donor $$$. It seems to me that the LGBTQueer lobby has created such a powerful money machine, including hundreds of millions of dollars extracted from pandering corporations, that it doesn’t even know how to spend it all. –Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH.org; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

FINALLY! – Human Rights Campaign President Chad “Rosa Parks” Griffin Steps Down

by Will Kohler

Via the AP (Take the article with a huge grain of salt)

Chad Griffin, the influential gay rights activist who helped turn the Human Rights Campaign into a powerful political force, announced Thursday that he is stepping down as the organization’s president.

Griffin informed staff at HRC of his decision to step down Thursday. Griffin hasn’t said what he plans to do next. He is expected to stay at HRC until the organization names a new president; that process could take several months.

A prolific fundraiser with deep political ties, Griffin probably will become one of the most sought after advisers for Democrats preparing to undertake White House campaigns.

Back2Stonewall.com has never been a big fan of the HRC or of Chad “Rosa Parks” Griffin both of whom have both taken the credit for work that many grassroots activists have done while sucking up all the money in the LGBT community by throwing garish galas and weekly money begs .  Griffin a very good friend of Bill and Hillary Clinton (Griffin worked for Bill as an Aide during his White House years) has been one on the highest overpaid ($500k + benefits a year) LGBT rights org presidents and one of the most ineffectual leaders the organization has ever had. 

We will assume there’ll be a farewell cocktail party forthwith?….

 

VIDEO: Kincaid Interviews LaBarbera on ‘Disastrous’ Midterms – LGBTQ ‘Rainbow Wave’ Ushers in Scores of Homosexual, Transgender Lawmakers

Supposedly “moderate” open bisexual Democrat Kyrsten Sinema joins re-elected Wisconsin lesbian Tammy Baldwin in Senate

Folks, here is an interview I did with my friend and America’s Survival Inc. founder and CEO Cliff Kincaid. Social conservatives can never move forward and gain ground unless we are first honest about where we stand in the political and cultural universe. And, as Cliff points out, we are hurting. President Trump proclaimed the midterm elections a victory, but in many respects they were a disaster–especially for social conservatives who oppose the anti-Christian, anti-liberty agenda of Big LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer).

I appreciate how Cliff is fearless and does not slavishly echo the Republican Party line, or in this case the Fox News line [see his piece on the election HERE]. More sober analysts like Cliff and City Journal are describing the huge loses in once-safe-Republican suburbs where pro-LGBTQ, pro-abortion Democrats made big gains. (One is my own county, DuPage, west of Chicago, where Rep. Peter Roskam lost to social leftist Sean Casten.) And one reason for that is many “conservative” Republicans are no longer fighting for truth on these socials issues as they once did, or at least they are allowing the Democrats and the Left to put them on the defensive on moral issues.

The case of Arizona’s Senate seat–won by open “bisexual” Democrat Kyrsten Sinema–is illustrative of the Republicans’ Culture War defeatism. Start listening at 4:45 below. I just heard Fox News anchor Bret Baier yesterday refer to now-Senator-elect Sinema as a “moderate.” Really? A bisexual, irreligious Democrat endorsed by Planned Parenthood and championed by the Human Wrongs Rights Campaign (HRC)–the world’s most powerful homosexual-bisexual-transgender-“queer” lobby organization–a “moderate”? What is going on here?

We need to face some hard facts: read this New York Times piece on the midterms’ “Rainbow Wave”; and this celebratory press release by HRC, which reportedly spent $26 million to influence six battleground state races; and see the Gay & Lesbian Victory Institute crowing about how many openly LGBTQ candidates won on Nov. 6. And then there’s the 2-1 landslide defeat of pro-family forces trying to turn back the “transgender” tide in Massachusetts; see our friend Brian Camenker’s and MassResistance’s analysis of that debacle HERE. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

As Pelosi Promises Radical LGBTQ ‘Equality Act’ if Democrats Take House, Republicans Are Mostly Silent on ‘Gay’ Agenda

Tuesday, November 6th, 2018

Culture War No More? Arizona Democratic Senate candidate Rep. Kyrsten Sinema probably regrets protesting the U.S. military in this pink tutu, but she has nothing to fear from Republicans (and media conservatives) over her self-declaration that she is “bisexual.” That’s because GOP candidates and much of “conservative” media have abandoned telling the truth about the homosexual agenda. (Remember that “culture war” issue?) Meanwhile, the leading LGBTQ lobby group, Human Rights Campaign, spent $26 million targeting six key battleground states in the mid-term election. Hear AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera discuss the LGBTQ electoral agenda on VCY America’s “Crosstalk” HERE, and on AFR’s “Janet Mefferd Live” HERE.

“If Christians and conservatives are afraid to even discuss the homosexual agenda, how can we ever hope to defeat it?”

Why is it that one side in the Culture War over the normalization of sex-and-gender perversion (the LGBTQ agenda) is spending many millions of dollars on the election while the other side is afraid even to discuss it?  I have been asking this question in Christian media (AFA’s “One News Now,” AFR’s “Janet Mefferd Live,” VCY America’s “Crosstalk” [go directly to MP3 audio HERE] and AFA of Pennsylvania’s radio talk show) leading up to today’s election, and we sent out this press release today. — Peter LaBarbera, Americans For Truth; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

Nancy Pelosi Promises Radical LGBTQ “Equality Act” if Democrats Win House, while GOP Candidates Self-Censor on Homosexual Agenda

The most dangerous legislation ever to come out of the revolutionary “gay” activist movement – the federal “Equality Act,” which proposes adding “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” as protected classes in the Civil Rights code – hangs in the balance as Americans go to the polls today.

Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) promised that if the Democrat Party wins back the House and she becomes Speaker Pelosi, a top priority will be passing the Equality Act, which now has 198 co-sponsors in the House, all but two of them Democrats.

Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH.org) president Peter LaBarbera has renamed the Equality Act the “Criminalizing Christianity Act” and called it a “gay and transgender lawyers’ dream bill.” It would effectively criminalize traditional morality and undermine religious liberty by punishing Americans for living out their conscience on issues like unnatural homosexual “marriage” ceremonies and taxpayer funding of grotesque transsexual “sex-reassignment surgeries” (masquerading as “health care”).

In an excellent article summarizing the Equality Act, Heritage Foundation scholar Ryan Anderson writes, “By making ‘gender identity’ a protected class, the government would force Americans to embrace transgender ideology in a variety of settings…elevating “gender identity” to a protected class across our federal antidiscrimination laws could impose a nationwide transgender bathroom policy, a nationwide pronoun policy, a nationwide sex-reassignment health care mandate….”

VIDEO: AFTAH’s LaBarbera Speaks on HRC’s LGBTQ Pressure Campaign Against Corporations

Thursday, May 4th, 2017

On April 1, I spoke at a Texas Mass Resistance conference in Austin that was put on by my good friend Brian Camenker, founder of national Mass Resistance, and Texas MR leader Robert Oscar Lopez–both brilliant pro-family strategists. Here is my presentation, dealing with the Human Wrongs Rights Campaign’s (HRC)’s ongoing pressure campaign to get major corporations to promote the radical LGBTQ agenda. Most Americans haven’t a clue about how successful HRC’s pro-perversion “CEI” (Corporate Equality Index) campaign has been. It even has an explicit anti-family component that punishes a corporation with negative points if it supports, say, a pro-national-marriage ministry. You can watch the other speeches at this excellent event on the main MR site. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

Do 66,000 Pediatricians Really Support the AAP’s Extreme ‘Transgender’ Agenda?

Tuesday, April 11th, 2017
HRC_AAP_Alliance

‘First, Do Great Harm’: The American Academy of Pediatricians (AAP) is now officially partnering with the anti-Christian homosexual-transgender lobby organization Human Rights Campaign.

By Laurie Higgins

Reprinted with permission from the Illinois Family Institute website; first published April 5, 2017

I’ve read umpteen times that the 66,000-member American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) supports the use of opposite-sex restrooms and locker rooms in schools by gender-dysphoric students. Wowzer! 66,000? That’s a lot of pediatricians.

A few weeks ago I got to ruminating on that mind-boggling claim. It seemed implausible that all 66,000 pediatricians could believe something so radical. So, I set off on a quest to dig into this claim, and what I learned is surprising.

Fortunately for me and my quest, there’s another medical organization that has sprung up precisely because of the radical positions taken by the AAP: the American College of Pediatricians (ACPeds). You may have heard of ACPeds because the very name sends shivers of revulsion (or is it fear) up the spines of liberals everywhere. Why? Is it because ACPeds is composed of charlatans and snake oil salespersons who received their medical degrees from Rufus T. Firefly’s University of Freedonia?

Nope.

ACPeds is ridiculed because it holds different positions on the treatment of gender-dysphoria in minors. Leftists are reluctant to discredit ACPeds based solely on disagreement about treatment protocols because that argument becomes circular: “You can’t trust ACPeds because it doesn’t support ‘gender affirmative’ protocols, and we all know ‘gender affirmative’ protocols are right.”

So, how do liberals attempt to discredit ACPeds which was founded just 15 years ago? They do so by citing the fact that ACPeds’ membership numbers are lower than those of the AAP, which was founded 87 years ago. Still a fallacious argument (i.e., appeal to popularity), but it works as a soundbite and it works for ignorant school board members.,

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.

Gorsuch and the ‘Gays’: LGBTQ Lobby Furious Over Trump’s SCOTUS Nominee

Thursday, February 2nd, 2017

Homosexual activists fret over Neil Gorsuch’s judicial philosophy and record; Log Cabin Republicans noncommittal

Lambda_Legal_Gorsuch_Dangerous_Graphic

Let the “Borking” Begin: Homosexual legal group Lambda Legal runs photo of Trump’s SCOTUS nominee, Judge Neil Gorsuch, with the word “Dangerous” printed over his face.

By Peter LaBarbera

Trump giveth, and Trump taketh away. Days after giving homosexual activists a huge gift by NOT rescinding a 2014 Obama executive order forcing federal contractors to have an LGBT “nondiscrimination” policy, Trump offered up a constitutional “originalist,” Judge Neil Gorsuch, to replace deceased Justice Antonin Scalia.

That led the coddled array of deviant-sex-and-gender leftist groups, otherwise known as the LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) movement, to go ballistic [see my LifeSiteNews piece here].

Note that, regarding one 2015 decision by Circuit Court Judge Gorsuch involving a gender-confused prisoner, the LGBTQ Lobby almost literally has its (transgender) panties in a wad. (The poor fella in the case, a “male-to-female” transsexual, was not permitted to wear “feminine undergarments” in jail. Boo-hoo.)

It is hardly shocking that the same homosexual and transgender activists who create “rights” based on sodomitic inclinations and same-sex/gender-confused feelings would fear a man like Gorsuch, who is being compared to the brilliant conservative Justice Scalia. The latter repeatedly eviscerated the “living, breathing Constitution” judicial philosophy of “progressives” that discovers “rights” out of thin air to accommodate modern social ills like abortion-on-demand, homosexuality and pornography.

Even honest liberals might agree with this: it is difficult to find a “constitutional” right for two dudes to “marry” seeing that sodomy itself was illegal in most colonies and a taboo at the time of the Constitution’s framing. (“Prior to 1962, sodomy was a felony in every state, punished by a lengthy term of imprisonment and/or hard labor,” the left-biased Wikipedia reports.)

So even though the newly elected Trump choked badly by telling 60 Minutes that legalized same-sex “marriage” via the 2015 Obergefell v. Hodges ruling is “settled law” (while somehow Roe v. Wade is not), the Supreme Court could be just one more Trump appointment away from reversing it and sending “gay marriage” back to the states. That freaks out the Homosexual Lobby, which, like the Left in general, regards its SCOTUS victories as permanent, and pro-family wins like the 1986 Bowers v. Hardwick decision upholding sodomy laws as temporary.

Here’s a quick rundown with links on some of the larger LGBTQ organizations’ hostile statements against Gorsuch; most of these are excerpts (note source links attached to group name). Also note the nuanced, noncommittal statement of the homosexual Log Cabin Republicans on Trump’s nominee:

GLAAD (formerly Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Discrimination):

“Neil Gorsuch’s harmful history of discrimination against the LGBTQ community renders him completely unfit to sit on the highest court in the land,” said Sarah Kate Ellis, GLAAD President & CEO. “He has record of advocating for anti-LGBTQ rhetoric or supporting candidates that are in favor of open discrimination against people and families who simply want to be treated the same as everyone else. Gorsuch’s presence on the Supreme Court will affect the law of the land for generations to come – long after Trump is out of office, and will turn back the clock on equality and acceptance.”
