    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...

The event is a fundraiser for AFTAH and I can think of no better way to spend a Saturday night. All God-fearing Americans are aware of the assault on our culture which emanates from a small, but powerful group of homosexual radical activists. With the assistance of the liberal mainstream media, this movement has led to a well-coordinated attack on pro-family values. Parents instill in their children a set of values...

    A conservative Christian activist says it's a sad omen for the Obama administration and the United States that Barack Obama has been seeking guidance from the Episcopal Church's first openly homosexual bishop. The Times of London reports that the president-elect sought out New Hampshire homosexual bishop Vicki Gene Robinson for advice three times during his presidential campaign. Robinson, whose ordination in the Episcopal Church has caused a deep rift within the Anglican Communion, was reportedly sought out by Obama to discuss what it feels like to be "first." Robinson notes in their three private conversations, Obama voiced his support for...

    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...
  • AFT's LaBarbera On Point: Crist's Sexual Preference Does Matter, If He's Being Considered For V-P

    04/02/2008 1:25:20 PM PDT · by Daniel T. Zanoza · 32+ views ^ | April 1, 2008 | Daniel T. Zanoza Commentary On March 27th, Americans For Truth (AFT) president Peter LaBarbera wrote an insightful column about the issue of sexual preference and whether elected officials and those seeking elected office should answer public inquiries about such matters. ["There has been ample speculation in the alternative press that Florida Governor Charlie Crist is homosexual or bisexual."] LaBarbera's position is: Such information about individuals seeking or holding office should be available to the public. LaBarbera took criticism from a few liberal Republicans and some homosexual activists because of his column. But history should have taught all Republicans a lesson concerning...

    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. The attack is coming from the Republican elite...

    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...

    Christian Candidate Criticized for 'Coming Out of the Closet' By Jim Brown and Jody Brown March 29, 2005 (AgapePress) - An Illinois pro-family activist says the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is attempting to intimidate a Christian school board candidate because she has vowed to oppose the promotion of homosexuality in schools. The ADL recently sent a letter to Leslie Pinney, urging the Christian women to "refrain from political appeals based on religious faith." Pinney, a candidate for the District 214 school board in Arlington Heights, had informed local pastors her decision-making while on the board would be based on her Christian...

    ( - The business priorities of one of America's largest airlines are being criticized after the company co-sponsored a major conference on bisexuality shortly after laying off thousands of employees. Texas-based American Airlines, which reportedly lost $1.12 billion in the first six months of this year, narrowly averted filing for bankruptcy by laying off 7,000 employees in April and cut another 3,100 workers in July, was a sponsor of the North American Conference on Bisexuality at the Radisson Hotel in San Diego, Calif., Aug. 21-24. The conference featured nudity, workshops on erotic touch and how-to instructions on hosting sex orgies....

    ( - Some Christian activists expressed disappointment Tuesday over the election of the Episcopalian Church's first openly homosexual bishop - a vote that occurred after church officials meeting in Minneapolis, Minn., concluded allegations of past sexual misconduct on the part of Rev. Gene Robinson were baseless. "It's a sad day for Christians everywhere," Peter LaBarbera, senior policy analyst with Concerned Women for America's Culture and Family Institute, told The vote by the House of Bishops had been postponed Monday following the 11th-hour allegations that Robinson had engaged in inappropriate touching with another man at a church event.

    <p>Last week's announcement by Wal-Mart Stores Inc. that it had extended its antidiscrimination policy to include gay and lesbian employees underscored a new reality: The workplace is becoming gay-friendly.</p> <p>Some gay activists, in fact, consider Wal-Mart a laggard, given all the large companies that already have adopted such policies. According to a tally kept by Human Rights Campaign, a Washington-based gay-rights advocacy group, 318 of the nation's 500 largest public employers have similar bans on discrimination based on sexual orientation. Additionally, 198 of those companies offer health-insurance benefits to domestic partners of gay and lesbian employees, a measure Wal-Mart stopped short of adopting.</p>

    Capitol Hill ( - Sen. Frank Lautenberg Friday hosted homosexual employees of the U.S. Department of Justice in the Russell Senate Office Building for their annual "Gay Pride Month" celebration. The New Jersey Democrat said Attorney General John Ashcroft had "no rational or reasonable explanation" for asking the group to pay rent for Justice Department facilities they wanted to use for the private affair. Lautenberg - who did not attend the event but whose statement was read by a staff member - is one of three members of Congress to attack the Department of Justice (DOJ) in general and Ashcroft...

    (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...

    ( - Activists seeking support for nondiscrimination policies for "transgenders" in employment on Capitol Hill are twisting the original intent of the civil rights movement - to redress wrongs committed against America's black population - and should be rebuffed, a public policy group said. Instead, lawmakers should opt for the "compassionate response" and suggest counseling for people considering sex-change operations, Sandy Rios, president of Concerned Women for America, said in a letter to members of Congress. By signing a nondiscrimination pledge, lawmakers also would forfeit the right to object if men came to work dressed as women and wanted to...
