Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade Corrupts Children – Marred by Lesbian Kiss from Broadway Musical “The Prom”

Saturday, November 24th, 2018

“Even this traditional icon of Americana … is being co-opted by whitewashed depravity.”—Linda Harvey

Macy’s Corrupts Children — And Liberals Are Loving it: Homosexual behavior is immoral, and proscribed as sinful in the Bible (see Romans 1:26). Yet major corporations like Macy’s–egged on by the radical Human Rights Campaign–are promoting it like never before. This is a photo from a YouTube video of the 2018 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade, which featured two actresses kissing (we’ve blocked the indecent kiss here). The occasion for the celebration of lesbianism was a new Broadway musical comedy, “The Prom,” about a lesbian student who is frustrated (by Christian bigots, of course) in her attempt to take another girl to her high school prom.

Folks, we’ll have more on this latest abuse of children’s innocence by pro-LGBTQ “progressives.” I was attacked on Twitter for tweeting this about my good friend Linda Harvey’s piece (one fanatic urged Twitter to suspend me):

Hollywood and the media are really, really good at selling sexual perversion. But also remember that much of corporate LGBTQ activism of this type is being done to score points on the LGBTQueer lobby Human Wrongs Rights Campaign’s rigged “Corporate Equality Index” scorecard. That scoring system, outlined by AFTAH HERE, uses deceptive and very unfair tactics to pressure companies to adopt pro-homosexual and pro-“transgender” policies. More on that coming. –Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

Macy’s Parade Marred by Lesbian Teen Kiss

On Thanksgiving morning at 9:00 am, we turned on the TV, eager to see the Ohio State marching band in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. The famous all-brass stars of Big 10 football games were scheduled to be the leading band in the heartwarming procession down Central Park West to 34th Street.

But of course, we weren’t allowed to enjoy this moment before the incessant homosexual agenda was thrust into America’s face.

The cast of the hit Broadway musical “The Prom” performed in the first few minutes of the broadcast, smilingly introduced by NBC’s Hoda Kotb as the story of a teen girl whose high school would rather cancel prom than let her take a girlfriend to the dance. In the scene, the female performers held hands—one in a tuxedo and the other in a dress — and the closing touch was their lesbian kiss.

Predator Alert: Professors and Doctors Who Are Child Porn Monsters

Friday, March 17th, 2017
Dr. Richard Keller

Secret Monsters: Dr. Richard Keller, a 56-year-old father of a two year old and a pediatric endocrinologist at Boston Children’s Hospital and pediatrics instructor at Harvard Medical School, was arrested, 13 September 2012, on child porn charges. He was Medical Director at Phillips Academy (alumni include George H.W. and George W. Bush) for 19 years before suddenly resigning, having possessed over 100 DVDs of child sex abuse. See Dr. Hanrahan’s list of convicted pedophile “doctors trading in child rape.”

We at AFTAH commend Dr. Lori Handrahan for her outstanding and critically important work exposing child-sex predators (convicted pedophiles). See Dr. Handrahan’s list of “Doctors Trading in Child Rape” and her compilation of “Professors & Staff Arrested for Trading in Child Rape.”

Below is a piece by my friend Linda Harvey–recipient of the 2016 AFTAH Truth Teller Award–summarizing Dr. Handrahan’s work. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH

Professors Who Are Child-Porn Monsters

By Linda Harvey – Opinion

What in the world goes through the mind and heart of a child abuser? A child rapist? Or the person who collects images of children being raped and tortured and exchanges them with other viewers, mostly middle-aged white males?

Dr. Lori Handrahan has done extensive research on this subject and what she has discovered is horrifying.

Child pornography use is rapidly escalating and the subject matter often involves younger children and more sadistic violence.

And the media is largely ignoring it. They are too busy examining President  Trump’s every hangnail.

The good news is that, in recent years, numerous indictments have been brought against prominent men in academia, medicine, and federal and state agencies. These men, incredibly, were able to conceal their addictions to watching innocent children be raped and tortured, hiding behind cloaks of respectability.

These were – and are – people at the top of their professions. Some have not yet been caught and locked away forever. I am hoping that changes very soon.

And think about this. If we are mystified by the seeds of radical revolution being encouraged on college campuses, this may explain some of it. Students’ favorite professors may be viewing, in their spare time, online streaming images of toddlers being raped.

It’s an epidemic of cleverly-disguised monsters consorting with demons, with America’s children as their victims.

And the perpetrator list includes numerous doctors, some with Ivy League pedigrees, who have access to children. Here are just a few examples from Lori’s research, where she links to local media coverage (where arrests are often reported, and then media interest disappears).

Dr. Richard Keller was a pediatric endocrinologist at Boston Children’s Hospital who also taught at Harvard Medical School. He was arrested for possession of child pornography, including videos of boys in explicit sexual scenarios, material he received while medical director of the prestigious Phillips Academy, a position he had held for nineteen years.

VIDEO: Linda Harvey Keynote Speech at AFTAH Banquet 2016

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016

Americans For Truth banquet attendees were treated to a sobering and fact-filled presentation by Linda Harvey of Mission America on the homosexual-transgender threat to youth–at Grace Gospel Fellowship church in Bensenville, Illinois Friday evening. It was my honor to present Linda with the 2016 “American Truth Teller” award. She joins these other heroes for Truth receiving the annual AFTAH award:  Dr. Judith Reisman, the late Ken (“Hutch”) Hutcherson, author Robert Reilly, Sandy Rios, Dr. Michael Brown and Dr. Scott Lively.

Linda’s speech was loaded with compelling facts that undermine “gay” and “trans” myths–such as the non-scientific claim that people are “born gay.” We also heard from Jeannette Ward, a Board Member in the U-46 School District northwest of Chicago who has bravely stood up to the modernist notion that boys who think they are girls should be allowed to us the female restrooms in schools. We will have more on Linda’s talk and this exciting evening. Thanks to all who came and supported Americans For Truth! — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH

Diversity? Pro-LGBTQ Bias at Metea Valley High School in Aurora, Illinois Exposed – Linda Harvey

Wednesday, October 19th, 2016

Schools offer one-sided, pro-LGBTQ propaganda to celebrate homosexuality and “transgenderism,” and call that “diversity”

metea_hs_glsen_ally_week_sept_2016


One-Sided “Diversity”? Metea Valley High School in Aurora, IL, recently joined with the activist group GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network) to promote “GLSEN Ally Week,” in its school library. This is a photo from the library exhibit, which featured a bunch of pro-homosexual/pro-transgender books recommended by GLSEN. Schools like Metea talk a lot about “diversity” and “inclusion,” but they rarely allow opposing viewpoints on LGBTQ issues. This lack of balance dishonors and does a disservice to students. Photo: Americans For Truth.

Dear AFTAH Readers,

I’m so proud of my son, John, for exposing the radical LGBTQ agenda at his high school, Metea Valley High School, in Aurora, Illinois [see below]. One-way “diversity and inclusion” of the sort Linda Harvey describes below is educational malpractice; it denies students basic facts–like the existence of ex-“gays”–and fuels the Left’s spurious narrative that opposing homosexualism and transgenderism = “hate” and “bigotry.”

I will have more on this situation in future posts, but for now suffice it to say that I now realize based on my experience with our children in public schools that very few parents have a even a clue about how ubiquitous political correctness is there. Naturally, I’m very attuned to it but even I can barely keep up with just the sexual and gender propaganda at one school, Metea Valley HS (which has many good qualities and fine teachers, and earned a “silver medal” in U.S. News’ rankings of “Best High Schools”). There is almost zero balance on the moral issue of homosexuality, and now transgendered “identities” are all the rage. Of course, it is intimidating for busy parents–much less students–to confront educational authorities about rampant bias.

Linda Harvey

Linda Harvey is the keynote speaker at the AFTAH dinner-banquet Friday, Oct. 28. More info HERE.

AFTAH Banquet Friday, Oct. 28: This is why I am so grateful and honored to have my good friend, WND columnist, and Mission America founder Linda speak at our annual AFTAH dinner-banquet, in just nine days (Oct. 28). Linda cares so much about combating school misinformation that over the years she has actually taken the time to read some of the recommended pro-homosexual books,. You will be shocked at what she finds (although Culture War veterans shouldn’t be). Full details of the banquet Friday, October 28 at Grace Gospel Fellowship Church, in Bensenville, Illinois (northwest of Chicago) can be found HERE; please invite others to come (tickets are just $25 per person).

One thing is clear: it is up to US–you and me–to provide the balance, real “inclusion” and genuine “diversity” on these matters–because the educational establishment is as committed to the ever-metastasizing LGBTQueer Revolution as the media. — Peter LaBarbera.

Free Speech Denied at School (Unless It’s Porn)

One-Sided LGBTQ Book List: This bookmark containing a list of pro-homosexual/pro-transgender books was passed out at the Metea Valley High School “Ally Week” table. Click to enlarge.

By Linda Harvey, first published by WND.com, Oct. 18, 2016
Democrats pretend to be shocked, shocked at the potty mouth of Donald Trump.

But if Trump’s words were put in the mouth of a teen fiction character, the book would be celebrated as “bold” and “coming-of-age” by the American Library Association and lauded with numerous awards.

Especially if the book also featured openly homosexual adolescents.

Free speech is permitted, even promoted in some of today’s schools if it appears in the form of printed obscenity. But viewpoint exchanges by students? Think again.

At Metea Valley High School in the Chicago suburb of Aurora, Ill., administration officials came down sharply on one male student’s discussions with student members of the school’s “gay-straight alliance” because he dared to reveal the risks of homosexuality and the threat to religious freedom posed by Supreme Court-imposed homosexual “marriage.”

John, this courageous young Christian, approached the lunch-period recruiting table for the school’s “gay-straight alliance” and began a respectful dialogue that one of the GSA students claimed became heated. After a few GSA members accused John of yelling and being a “bully,” one honest GSA student – questioned by the junior class dean – verified John’s version: that he remained civil and was never aggressive or offensive.

Linda Harvey on Oregon’s ‘Gender-Obliterating Nonsense’ – The Worst State to Raise Children

Sunday, October 16th, 2016
twitter_alex_matheny_from_pretty_girl_to_pretend_man_aftah-graphic

LGBTQ Liberalism Is Destroying Young Women’s Bodies: Alex Matheny, 20, shows off her “transgender” “top surgery” at right after she had her healthy breasts surgically removed to have a flat chest like the “man” she wants to be (and yet never can be). At left is photo of Alex as a beautiful girl a few years ago in high school. Ideas have consequences, and the “transgender” ideology pushed by powerful LGBTQ groups like the Human Rights Campaign is leading thousands of youth to mutilate their bodies to fulfill a disordered fantasy of becoming the opposite sex. This dangerous agenda is most aggressive in deep-blue states like Washington and Oregon. Matheny is shown October 6, 2016, one month after her breast-removal operation; at this point she had been on (male) testosterone hormone therapy for about nine months. Photos: Alex Matheny’s Twitter page.

Folks, here is another column on gender insanity by Linda Harvey, who is the keynote speaker at the AFTAH dinner-banquet in less than two weeks, on Friday, October 28, 2016 at Grace Gospel Fellowship Church, in Bensenville, Illinois (in northwest suburban Chicago).

The Worst State to Raise Children

By Linda Harvey, first published by WND.com Oct. 9, 2016

Warning: This column contains graphic content.

Linda Harvey

Linda Harvey comes to Chicagoland for the annual AFTAH dinner-banquet Friday, Oct. 28. Tickets are just $25/person. Full details HERE.

It’s official: Oregon is in free-fall.

And if possible, you really don’t want to raise children there until some big changes are made.

Among a badly behaving peer group – the rest of the states in the U.S. – Oregon still sinks below them all, even radical Massachusetts and loony California.

It’s not just the legalized marijuana and assisted suicide. It’s not just the bisexual governor and the after-school Satan clubs that some Portlandia-dazed educators have welcomed.

Oregon’s liberals – who dominate the government and schools – consider children guinea pigs for grotesque experiments in sexual and spiritual corruption. Praise God for the few Christians and conservatives who have managed to limit these programs to some extent.

But much more remains to be done to protect Oregon’s children from permanent harm.

Consider these facts:

  • In Oregon, a 15-year-old can now embark on hormone and sex-change surgical treatment without a parent’s consent, paid for by Medicaid. This policy was quietly enacted in 2015 by an appointed commission of the Oregon Health Authority. Judicial Watch accessed documents and found that 56 children were treated for gender “assessment” in the first six months of the program, some under age 9.
  • Dr. Paul McHugh, former psychiatrist-in-chief at Johns Hopkins University, has called the Oregon policy for gender-confused youth “child abuse” and that such operations for youth are “never appropriate.”
  • The option for young teens to have healthy breasts and penises amputated is being advocated through the many school-based health clinics that bypass parental rights to advise children about intimate issues and often refer them to Planned Parenthood. Among the services the clinics promote for minor children are “reproductive health” and counseling for “LGBTQ” issues.

So middle-school girls are given birth control and referrals to Planned Parenthood, and students questioning their sexuality will most likely be told, inaccurately, that some people are “born that way” and that such sexual expression is just as natural as heterosexuality.

Ze, Zim and Zyr – Today’s Language Insanity

By Linda Harvey, 10-4-16

“Ze walks with me and ze talks with me, and ze tells me I am zyr own …”

Welcome to favorite hymns as they might be revised by Princeton, the University of Michigan and the diabolical American left.

Who knew the power of pronouns? At first glance, they seem innocuous.

But when oppression begins to supplant authentic justice, one of the first symptoms is the breakdown of ordinary language. George Orwell warned us; now America stinks from the rotten rhetorical fruit of decaying, toxic values.

It’s heartbreaking to say, but the smell of death surrounds us.

From “negative rhetoric about Islam,” and accusations of “hate speech” against homosexuality, revealing reality is the current great offense. New meanings for old terms have become the weapons to deliver fake justice and the rallying cries to rationalize sexual license, lawlessness, theft, revenge – you name it.

Linda Harvey on David Hall: Workers and Soldiers: Rebel Against ‘Diversity’ Training

Saturday, October 1st, 2016

Won’t Certify Sin: Read more about federal worker David Hall’s refusal to view a pro-homosexual “diversity” video HERE. Sign up for the Americans For Truth dinner-banquet featuring Linda Harvey HERE.

Workers and Soldiers: Rebel Against ‘Diversity’ Training

By Linda Harvey, Sept. 28, 2016

David Hall is a hero for standing up and saying “no” to the lies and depravity wrapped up in on-the-job homosexual “diversity” training. He may lose his federal government job in Illinois, although based on what federal law would be anyone’s guess.

There is no U.S. statute that defines homosexuality and gender confusion as “civil rights.” The Social Security Administration, where Hall works, will be inventing a reason for his dismissal if they make that decision.

Hall believes the word of God, that homosexuality and gender rebellion are offenses in the sight of the Lord. “I’m not going to certify sin,” he told WCIA-TV. He also urged others to do the same.

He told the local newspaper in Champaign, Illinois:

“This is something I want to fight and expose, to give other Christians the courage of their convictions. I can’t tell you how many I’ve worked with that have told me, ‘Dave, we agree with you 100 percent. I wish I had the courage to do that.’ But they’re scared. … Their fears are being realized through me.”

Taking such a stand is a huge risk – financially, occupationally, personally – but it’s a risk more Americans need to take where they can. Our enlisted men and women in the military are facing the same daunting choice: condone deviance, or suffer the professional consequences.

The Navy has announced plans to require sailors to attend “training” to accept men who want to dress as women and vice versa. This would be, in a word, illegal.

Linda Harvey on U.S. Civil Rights Commission ‘Peaceful Coexistence’ Report: ‘The Left to Christians: Your Turn in the Closet’

The Left to Christians: Your Turn in the Closet

By Linda Harvey, 9-20-16

They want us to believe it’s “peaceful coexistence.” Others call it an unjust declaration of war.

The federal U.S. Commission on Civil Rights (USCCR) just published a scandalous report that scorns authentic Christian faith and recommends severe restrictions of its full expression by American citizens – expression protected by the First Amendment.

The report, “Peaceful Coexistence: Reconciling Nondiscrimination Principles with Civil Rights” [get PDF here], is another Washington agency telling Christians it’s their turn in the closet. Now that homosexuals and transvestites are “out,” their desires, plans, demands and delusions take priority.

Religious exemptions, the commission report contends, “infringe” on civil rights. But hold on. Commission Chairman Martin Castro in this report unlawfully equates “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” demands to legally established U.S civil rights. Actual U.S. civil rights law bars discrimination about race, color, religion, sex, national origin and disability status.

No law designates homosexuality and gender confusion as federally protected civil rights. Just like the disguise of a “drag queen,” the rationale for much of this report is a lie.

States that have foolishly passed homosexual and gender rebellion “non-discrimination” laws have their own civil rights agencies. Let those states invent bogus recommendations to further restrict citizens’ concerns over the mandatory embrace of “LGBT” behaviors, ramping up the use of law as a weapon to fine Christians, get them fired, or close their businesses.
