The following are some photos taken at Philadelphias homosexual (Gay) Pride Parade and PrideDayfestival Sunday, June 10, 2012, by this reporter for Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH).
The Philly parade and the festival at Penns Landing that followed it were small compared to much larger homosexual pride parades and festivals in cities like Chicago and San Francisco but both events were attended by many young children. I witnessed dozens of children from the very young to teenagers marching in the parade and there were also many observing it from the side streets.
Perhaps even some of AFTAHs homosexual critics would admit that the scenes depicted below are not appropriate for children. Yet in major cities across the country children are more than ever a common site at gay pride parades and festivals. Click on the photos below to view them in enlarged format:

The reason I posted this is because these Gay Pride events are linked with the Gay marriage/adoption movement, yet few people outside the gay advocacy movement know what actually goes on at them.
It is time for the Lott family to leave town.
If they don’t “breed”, why are there seemingly so many of them and where are they coming from? Why aren’t they going “extinct”? Just asking.
Most welcome! As President Obama took it upon himself to declare June “Gay Pride month”, I think its important that LeBarbara takes the time to see what this really consists of.
Masses of happy liberals believe this is all about “family diversity” and “equality” and do not bother to investigate as to what it actually entails.
As noted , these pics are actually tame as compared to what Mr. LeBarbara has captured at various and sundry Pride marches.
“If they dont breed, why are there seemingly so many of them and where are they coming from? Why arent they going extinct? Just asking.”
Good question. Might it possibly be that - due to their massive agenda pushed in the public schools and colleges - they are actually recruiting greater numbers to their side?
I just read an article which stated that the increase in gay teen bullying and suicide can be traced to the fact that 12 and 13 year olds are being encouraged to “come out of the closet” and declare themselves as gay if they have the slightest thought of same sex attraction. Think about it long enough, and one smells a rat, feels like screaming....
A lot of homosexuals have been molested as children; it is a horrible cycle, and the reason why they don’t disappear (and also why it isn’t “genetic”).
“A lot of homosexuals have been molested as children; it is a horrible cycle, and the reason why they dont disappear (and also why it isnt genetic).”
Yes, and what is even more tragic is that the APA (American Psychological Association) blocks any efforts by NARTH or any other ex-gay type group to offer hope and reparative therapy.
Yes, for purely political reasons we are to accept that what these deviants do to each other is “normal”. The Catholic Church learned the hard way (through millions of dollars) that there is no self-control in this group; they are now outright banned from the seminaries. We didn’t have a “pedophilia scandal”; we had a “homosexual rape” scandal.
Yes that is what the scandal was all about, although the gay advocacy groups will never view it this way and are careful to make certain that others are kept in the dark as well.
I was just reading that in Queensland, Australia, the parliament has downgraded gay relationships so that they resemble marriage less, and have taken away surrogacy rights to gay couples. (they are already barred from adoption). This is obviously an awakening to the fact that gay movements in Australia were duping people about equality. Why can there not be a similar awakening here?
“Why can there not be a similar awakening here?”
I’m hoping November will indicate there has been one.
I believe this or some other childhood trauma causes these people to act out sexually. Their actions at these gay pride events helps confirm that hypothesis for me.
There must be something in the water in the big cities that get people to act like idiots. I live in the mid-west and have a few co-workers/friends who are gay and they act like the rest of us. One totally shocked us when she introduced us to her partner one day as we all hit the local watering hole for happy hour. I guess the mid-west really doesn’t need all that “look at me sh!t”.
I hope so, but I have doubts about Romney being tough on these issues. Maybe he will be once he has the power and no longer has to soften what he says for campaign reasons and expediency.
I have no desire to see gay people suffer and have sympathy for what they may have been through- but the movement and agenda is a dupe and a pernicious social force - so that I would very much like to see reversed and put in its place.

Well the sort of midwest gays you describe are not the problem and these do have rights to privacy and freedom. I have always, always believed it is the gay movement headed by radical activists with their very dangerous agenda which needs addressing, because it undermines the social fabric in major ways.
I have no doubts about Romney in that area, he's already proclaimed that queers adopting children is ok with him, as long as "they love each other".
“I have no doubts about Romney in that area, he’s already proclaimed that queers adopting children is ok with him, as long as “they love each other”. “
Right, that says it all. Especially because the support of adoption would then lead logically to supporting gay marriage, as kids ought to have married parents.
Additionally, Romney has a very liberal track record on gay issues. He is a RINO in that sense, or one of the “new” GOP members who have gone all wrong on this issue.
believed it is the gay movement headed by radical activists with their very dangerous agenda
Very good point, I’d even be willing to bet that most the degenerates there aren’t even gay...
If they dont breed, why are there seemingly so many of them and where are they coming from? Why arent they going extinct? Just asking.
They are being cultivated in our schools via sex education.
My son is a homosexual. It started with the internet and then experimentation.
There are many of these young men who live it for a while, get disgusted and leave it.
“Very good point, Id even be willing to bet that most the degenerates there arent even gay...”
Right, the fact that a group which comprises at most 1 - 2 % of the population is able to wield this much power is suspicious in the extreme.
A vast group of liberals are behind this agenda, of course: They are not gay themselves, but they dabble in bisexuality and are extremely decadent. They further the gay cause because their own lives resemble the lives of gays so much.
MD-> I believe this or some other childhood trauma causes these people to act out sexually. Their actions at these gay pride events helps confirm that hypothesis for me.
I seem to remember that "The Gay Report", a comprehensive study put out by two gay researchers back in the seventies or eighties, found that the numbers of men who suffer from Same-sex Attraction Disorder (SAD) who had experiences with adults when they were yet minors was in the high nineties. (The percentage that has had contact with a minor when they were an adult was something like 74%)
Seems there are three main factors in this (for male homosexuality) 1) absence or insufficiency of a relationship with one's father (or suitable male role model), 2) being molested or otherwise traumatized, 3) being relentlessly teased by one's peer group during the formative years. Most SADs have one or all three of these in their past.
Freeper Scripter maintained the list of homosexual agenda links at one time. He may remember more closely, or you can look at his profile (I think the list is still there) for more data on this.
I think things are made difficult for someone like your son because he is living in an era where this lifestyle is being aggressively pushed on young people. I think you should have faith that he will be one of those who leaves it behind.
Right : These are the main sources of the etiology of homosexual orientation, but how are any young people to get help when the advocacy groups have become ever more aggressive about herding them through the door of the gay lifestyle? They assure them that they will be able to marry, have children, and lead a perfectly normal life so there are less and less reasons for them to examine the etiology or to seek help.
Just add some uniforms and you have the Pentagon’s version...
And the Pubbies have said they won’t change it when back in the majority.
What has happened to our country???
Ministering to Homosexuals in San Francisco
Charles A. McIlhenny
Extracted from Ordained Servant vol. 6, no. 1 (January 1997)
A mother tearfully confided in me as pastor that her son poignantly declared himself gay. She had always known that he was different. He didnt play sports, he wasnt vicious or brutal, he liked music and interior decorating, he had a slight swagger to his gait, he spoke with a faint hair-lisp, and always hung around Uncle Harry at family gatherings. His declaration, however, seemed to be the coup de grace on their relationship - his relationship to his mother. I momentarily reflected on her sobbing, and then replied that it seemed like she was grieving over the discovery that her son was a from another planeta Martian! That his supposed coming outhis confessing a newly discovered faith-sex-conditionput him beyond the pale of her fundamentalist retrieval and that shed better get used to him being an alien, i. e., gay!
The homosexual propaganda machine has been cranking out overtime, to an unbelieving secular media, convincing people that gay is equivalent to any other already legitimate genetic race-like group. And amazingly many naive Christians have been seduced by such propaganda.
News Flash, Madam! Your son is NOT a Martian. Hes a sinner that needs the grace of GodJUST LIKE EVERY OTHER SINNER.
When people ask me if we have any special counseling for homosexuals I say yes: the counsel of the Word of God, the counsel of the preaching of the Gospel, the counsel of Gods call of repentance and faith in Jesus Christ, the counsel of Gods corporate covenant community in worship. Contrary to the gimmicks of the world, youd better believe we have something special.
Is the modern homosexual a special case with unique and complex psychoses which the primitive Scriptures never knew? Have we imbibed the pseudo-medical conclusion which places the 20th century homophile beyond the reach of the naive, hysterical dictates of the Word of God? Does the Word of God fail to recognize newly discovered genetic and biological factors to which, had they been known, would have made a difference in whether to condemn or accept homosexuals as just different? Does the Bible fail to appropriately distinguish between orientation and praxis? Does the Bible really condemn homosexuals or does it condemn heterosexuals acting contrary to their natures? Is it inversion or perversion which is forbidden by the Scriptures? The answer to all these questions is a resounding NO! Homosexuals have no place to hide from the scrutiny of Gods Lawno more than any other sinner who tries to invent excuses for his sin. Thats why the homosexual paradigm is so crucial for the church today. If this sin can be justified, then ANY sin can be excused; but the only justification recognized by the Word is that of sinners who repent and believe in the cross of Christ, instead of making excuses.
No, homosexuals are to be recieve no special method or message different from other sinners that need Jesus. If that were the case every sinner would have a special excuse for his peculiar type sin. The Bible is clear that sin, of whatever make and model, can only be forgiven by grace and overcome by the power of the gospel.
News flash! The opposite of a homosexual IS NOT a heterosexual. The idea that a homosexual is of another human kind is as foolish as saying the opposite of a paedophile is a heterosexual, or the opposite of an adulterer is a heterosexual. The true opposite of fornication is regeneration; the biblical opposite of paedophilia is justification; the cleansed opposite of homosexuality is sanctification. They ARE all heterosexuals! They havent stopped BEING heterosexuals. They have all broken Gods moral law. They all need to be converted - to be washed, sanctified, and justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God. [1 Cor. 6: 11]
In a sense every sinner is different in his sin but there is only ONE common faith-message: repent and believe the gospel. Paul told the Philippian jailer: Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved, you and your household. [Acts 16: 31] This was not tailor-made for Philippian government workers or European white/ male or Greek mid-life crises jailers with families. Paul would have said this to anyone no matter what his background or circumstance of sin would be.
Many of the homosexuality-plagued seekers think that they must be a special case. Its supposedly too hard to give up this sin; ergo, maybe its not sin after all! These people must see that it is no more difficult to abandon this sin than any other sin. That this sin has the same cleansing promise as every other sinno more and no less than the work of Christ.
Paul does say that, compared to other sins, sexual sin denigrates the human body; but he doesnt give them a different message of the gospel, nor promise a separate healing. [1 Cor. 6: 18]
One size fits all.
As for the homosexuals recovery the Apostle gives him the one common holy institution for all sinners: the divinely appointed redemptive agency of the Church of Jesus Christ. I say that as a pastor who knows from the Word of God that this is the covenant institutionthe family of Godwhich best cares for sinners and saints. She cares for sinners in warning them to flee from the wrath to come forbidding them entrance into the Kingdom of God while unrepentant; and for saints, in that it provides the comfort of the gospel of the forgiveness of sins and protection against the enemy. This institution sets the overall context for counseling those struggling with homosexuality.
San Francisco culture has a uniqueness when it comes to ministering to homosexuals. In the first place, there is such a strong support system legally organized to reinforce homosexual way of life that part of the biblical therapy process many times demands fleeing this City altogether. There is such a bombardment of homosexualityat every level of government, education, medical/health, scientific, media, entertainment and legislationthat in order to forsake wickedness as the Apostle exhorts, one must actually flee the City like Lot of oldnot because of an impending brimstone shower but because the seduction is so wickedly powerful.
Every imaginable agency, institution, and ombudsman provides for the most perplexed and questioning homosexual and lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and transvestite, and transgenerational person. Even worse, virtually every mainline churchloosely definedsupports gay/ lesbian causes along with same-sex marital unions.
Just recently the San Francisco Human Rights Commission, along with the endorsement of the Mayor and the Board of Supervisors, hosted a televised hearing for Gay, Lesbian, Bi, Transgender, and Questioning Youth Summit. Over four hours of testimony was taken from self-proclaimed homosexual teens by these agencies in order to see if added legislation was necessary to support our gay youth in the City. New health & medical services were demanded, free condom distribution, free needle for exchanges, gay/lesbian counseling services at the junior high and high school level.
In ministering to the homosexual inquirer, weve found that he must cut off all relations with his old community; he must reconstitute by faith into the family of God. He needs a whole new set of spiritual brothers and sisters, moms and dads, found in the Church of Christ. He needs a remodeled family in which to pattern new life and conduct; a place where Gods man is a man and Gods woman is really woman; husbands acting like husbands and wives acting like wives. Its not simply a matter of a role model reversal; its not replacing one role with another role as if play acting. A godly structured atmosphere is found only in the church of Jesus Christ that offers real hope and remedy for the enslaved sex addict.
In ministering to the homosexual inquirer not only must the Law of God be pressed upon the conscience but Gods one forgiveness in Christ alone must be also offered. Unless homosexuality be understood fundamentally as sintransgression of Gods one and only moral Lawno further deliverance and recovery ought to be expected.
Here are fundamental givens based exclusively on the Word of God. Do NOT compromise on the biblical message of sin and grace. That is the repentant homosexuals only hope. Do NOT compromise for the sake of winning the sympathetic hearing. His eternal security is in the uncompromised message of the Scriptures which every sinner needs.
re-enforcement from the Word on what God says about homosexuality: grace, forgiveness and judgment,
regular monitored accountability meetings with the elders; one of the elders should covenant to pray for him daily, (part of that accountability is in regular weekly prayer and Bible study gatherings with the congregation at large),
reminding that the continual faith-struggle with temptation is part of the sanctification processits when he stops struggling that hes got problems,
reassurance that hes not alone in this battle for victory; other membersevery memberalso struggles like he does,
to be careful about putting himself in temptations way,
to avoid being introduced to someone else who struggles with the same sexual sinthats too much temptation. Many of these Christians live alone and temptation in such cases is much more difficult to resist,
to know that in Christ he/ she is no longer a homosexual or lesbian just like converted murders and liars are no longer such despite temptations and feelings! Such WERE some of you. . . [1 Cor. 6: 11]
The Apostle Paul exhorts Timothy to flee youthful lusts. . . with those calling upon the Lord. . . [2 Tim. 2: 22] In other words, the exhortation to flee lust is ALONG WITH others struggling against sin in the context of the covenant community. The agency of the church has no hope for unrepentant homosexual only Gods sure wrath. The church has no authority from her Lord and Head to offer any hope apart from the grace of conversion; but for any repentant sinners, all the resources of the eternal God. . . my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. [Phil 4: 19]
As pastor I have the sure medicine for sin and relief in the preaching of the gospel. The ultimate counseling session must be done in the corporate worship service not merely private sessions; the full extent of the divinely appointed-ordinances of the Lord are necessary to combat and destroy every high thing and thought exalted against the Lord. Families in the church must be made aware of their needed role in ministering to individuals struggling with sin. Yet at the same time a persons sexual past is really nobody elses business. A group gathering of like minded repentant homosexuals must not congregate to talk out their mutual trials. Such sessions subtly foster rather than battle temptations. The mixedheterogeneouscongregation common ground for all is Gods safest sanctuary for biblical group-therapy.
Thank God there is this: the one size-fits-all gospel which alone guarantees to all sinners deliverance through our one common Savior, Jesus Christ. As I counsel struggling Christians, if the Christian faith does NOT save you from YOUR sin, then Ill renounce the faith and join you. If it wont work equally for you, it wont work for me either. Whatever peculiar providences may have caused ones moral adversity, unless he begins where Scripture begins, he will not end where Scripture promisesan end to sin.
November 13, 1996
The Rev. Dr. Charles A. McIlhenny is pastor of First Orthodox Presbyterian Church of San Francisco, California. For the past twenty years or so he has dared to boldly proclaim the truth of the Scriptures in Americas most infamous center
The media is up in arms over Sandusky (and rightfully so) yet they condone and push that very lifestyle on our kids. They want to have it both ways. They think “gay” is about decorating and dancing and flitting about. They totally dismiss the acts homosexuals engage in.
The photos of the Gay Pride Day parade in SF that were posted a year or two ago were pornographic. These acts were performed on the streets. And there were photos of SF cops standing around watching and laughing at the activities.
Reading the various posts, we are still allowing those bent on destroying this country to frame the terms of debate.
There is nothing in the world “GAY” about these deviates.
Allowing left wing wordsmiths frame the terms of the debate always puts us immediately in the position of defense in any debate with leftists.
If anything, these defective, not fully functioning humans are SSAD or Same Sex Attraction Disorder. I suggest in any discussions we all use the SSAD term rather than their made up word for their deviant behavior.
Yes, I had seen those SF pics and they were a real indictment against gay “pride”. Very pornographic, lurid in their details and scope.
Of course, the SFPD has come to accept them as “just a part of the community” so did nothing.
Thank you for posting this.
Of course the agenda activists will dismiss this as homophobic hate, and label the pastor as a promoter of hate speech and hate doctrines.
Just read that a powerful gay group (GoProud) has endorsed Mitt Romney, so one can already see he may pander to them if elected.
Less about gay pride and more about public EXHIBITIONISM.
——I believe this or some other childhood trauma causes these people to act out sexually. Their actions at these gay pride events helps confirm that hypothesis for me.-—
According to a psychologist who works with homosexuals, in his experience, 100% had poor, abusive, or non-existent relationships with their fathers.
I wish I hadn’t seen those pictures.
——The media is up in arms over Sandusky (and rightfully so) yet they condone and push that very lifestyle on our kids. They want to have it both ways.-—
One of the most frustrating aspects of how our culture views homosexuality.
“I wish I hadnt seen those pictures.
Yes it is unpleasant but also very important to know exactly what “Gay Pride” consists of. As I and another poster noted, there were pictures LeBarbara took at a San Francisco gay pride parade last year which makes these pale in comparison.

My son is a homosexual. This article has been a tremendous help in praying for my son. As you can see, the article is from 1997.
As my son’s mother, do you think I give a rip what “they” think?
Make excuses for bad behavior, you doom a soul forever.
Call it sin, and there is a remedy.
Yes of course you are right, and I am glad to hear that this article has helped you.
Yup, that’s what I was thinking about.
I’ve been in San Francisco when the gays are busy parading their pride in sexual immorality all over the place and in front of little children, nonetheless!
Disgusting! If you or I did anything close to what they do at an SF gay pride parade, we’d be locked up and put on the national sexual predators list!
Yup, San Francisco’s version makes this one look like a Disneyland parade.
It says a lot about Obama, that there is this level of comfort and openness in so honoring him. Good grief.
I know; I could not even post the explicit ones LeBarbara took, and yes, this was in an open street with children.
They view it as “campiness” or what they call “high camp” which somehow or other precludes law enforcement from dealing with them as you say they would with us, ordinary citizens.
