    Why are liberal 'gay' activists freaking out over a contraception case -- Hobby Lobby -- and should they be worried? Court's defense of religious liberty for profit-making companies could help Christian small businessmen oppressed by "gay rights" laws By Peter LaBarbera It's easy to understand why hard-core feminists with their frenzied, overblown "War on Women" rhetoric would be outraged by the Supreme Court's upholding of Hobby Lobby's right as a Christian-run corporation not to be forced to provide abortifacients to its employees through an Obamacare mandate. (See Hillary's misinformation on the decision HERE.) But why are liberal "gay" activists freaking...

    “Fox News joins the Pro-Homosexual Media Bandwagon” – so says Peter LaBarbera in a 40,000-word expose that flaunts over 220 footnotes. (Read the full report here: Unfair, Unbalanced and Afraid). While Sean Hannity chooses silence and John Stossel passive acceptance, rising star Megyn Kelly plays trans-gender advocate for Chaz Bono, then drops the “hate card” on the psychiatrist who disagrees. Bernie Goldberg pushes “Jesus is just alright with” gay, then implies that the Biblical heroes David and Jonathan were homosexual as were Ruth and Naomi. Sean Hannity? – Still mum. Bill O’Reilly bashes an ex-gay; Elizabeth Hasselbeck calls pope’s opposition...

LaBarbera said: As a fan of Ann Coulter, it pains me to see her cave in to political correctness and lend credibility to the phony homosexual “conservatives” over at GOProud. Worse, Coulter is sending a dangerous message to young Americans that homosexuality is OK. (It’s actually a sin.) Fully half of GOProud’s top 10 federal priorities center on using the Government to advance homosexuality, including: #4 – “Repealing ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t...

    Barack Obama sure has a strange way of showing his much-touted support for traditional "marriage." On Aug. 17, Obama's Justice Department filed a legal brief against DOMA, the Defense of Marriage Act, which was signed into law by the last Democrat to occupy the Oval Office: Bill Clinton. Weeks before that, Obama's administration had defended DOMA, setting off a flurry of protests from his gay-lesbian-bisexual-transgender-whatever allies. DOMA — which only Congress can repeal — passed overwhelmingly in 1996 with bipartisan consensus (a mere 14 Democratic Senators voted "No"). It protects states from being forced to recognize out-of-state "gay marriages." Its...

The UCLA School of Public Health found that to be true in California, but there have been other studies with similar results. Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality says homosexuals usually respond that they would not have so many problems if society would simply accept their behavior as normal. "You can't just keep going back to homophobia and societal stigma to account for this huge difference between straights and homosexuals with regard to various pathologies," he contends. "First of all, we're talking...

Chaplain Klingenschmitt wrote to me, concerned that the story about the orgy at Doubletree was an Internet rumor.

    The State of New York has been ordered to recognize homosexual "marriages" performed in U.S. states and foreign countries where the practice is legal. New York's highest court – the Court of Appeals – refused to review a lower-court ruling that ordered recognition of so-called foreign "same-sex marriages" performed outside the State of New York. Such unions must now be honored in New York if they were created legally -- for example, in Massachusetts or Canada. Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality says activist judges are now forcing homosexual marriage on New York citizens. "[T]his is a very...

    Commentary by Daniel Zanoza, Executive Director It has been an amazing experience. I have watched this year's race for the Republican presidential nomination with jaw-dropping awe. The Republican Party's elite, the dominant media and supposed conservative talk radio have done everything possible to marginalize Mike Huckabee--the only true pro-family Republican in the race--while doing so with a straight face. Here's a message I hope no pro-family voter will ignore or mistake for political gamesmanship. There is a movement at hand in the GOP to marginalize the pro-family element of the Republican Party.

    A pro-family group wants to inform voters about the depths of Hillary Clinton's pro-homosexual activism before the upcoming Super Tuesday primaries. Conservative watchdog groups exposed Senator Clinton (D-New York) last week for garnering 261 pork projects ("earmarks") for her supporters -- more than five times as many as any other presidential candidate currently serving in Congress. Earmarks are vague, written instructions attached to federal agency budgets that are often used as a "backdoor" to fund pet projects. Now Peter LaBarbera with Republicans for Family Values is drawing attention to one $300,000 funding earmark Clinton secured.

    WASHINGTON – A prominent pro-family leader is urging fellow conservatives to withdraw their support for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney over his recent expressed support for a “sexual orientation” non-discrimination law. Romney during an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press” said he supports the contentious Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which adds “sexual orientation” to a list of federally protected classes that prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin. The bill upsets conservative leaders because it grants special protection to employees based on their “actual or perceived” sexual orientation. Moreover, it would force Christian organizations...

"Mitt Romney's Christmas present to the homosexual lobby disqualifies him as a pro-family leader," LaBarbera said.

    Media outlets have given the story fairly wide coverage. Presidential candidate and former Senator John Edwards (D- North Carolina) recently named two leftist, anti-Christian bloggers to high profile positions with his campaign. In the past, Amanda Marcotte and Melissa McEwan have spewed anti-Christian venom containing language that might even make Howard Stern blush. Despite a chorus of disapproval, Edwards said he’d keep the ladies – if you can call them that – on his campaign payroll. But the two women apparently decided they’d rather devote their full attention to anti-Christian hatemongering, and quickly resigned. But another story, with perhaps more...

    Pro-family groups based in Washington, DC, and in Illinois say homosexuals are behind a new policy at Target stores that has resulted in banning Salvation Army kettle drive activities on the retail chain's premises nationwide. The familiar Salvation Army bell ringers and their red kettles have been barred from Target stores this Christmas season, and the official reason given by the retailer has to do with its policy prohibiting all nonprofit soliciting at Target locations. However, Bob Knight of the Culture and Family Institute is suspicious of the company's explanation. While it is true that Target has maintained a long-standing...

The following email was sent to administrators of School District 204 in Naperville-Aurora, urging special recognition of the Muslim holiday, Ramadan. I have yet to receive a return call from the author of the memo, Donna Crawford, Assistant Superintendent Elementary Education, asking if the same official...

    (AgapePress) - The largest homosexual advocacy organization in America has received a large financial grant from Sears, Roebuck and Company. Last week, an article in The Washington Post newspaper confirmed what critics of homosexual advocacy have been saying for nearly a decade: homosexuals are among the most affluent segments of American society. So Peter LaBarbera of the Culture and Family Institute was surprised to find out one of the nation's largest retailers is trying to help homosexuals out with a grant. Peter LaBarbera "We've learned that Sears Roebuck, the retailer that's so well-known to Americans, has awarded a $200,000 grant...

    GLEN ELLYN, Ill., Sept. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Illinois Family Institute Executive Director Peter LaBarbera said today that GOP Senate candidate Alan Keyes' willingness to debate conservative ideas is a "breath of fresh air in an age desensitized to moral truths," and said his comments on Mary Cheney's homosexuality are far closer to the truth than the views of his politically correct critics. ADVERTISEMENT "We may not always agree with the way he says things and I think he could be more gracious, but Keyes' fearlessness in discussing issues is a refreshing change from cookie-cutter candidates who lack courage or run...
