 There is an effort by the left to ruin America for the sake of control and the globalist agenda. Millie Weaver and Owen Shroyer break down the plot by the left to make the population dependent on government.

 PHOENIX, Ariz. — The Arizona Supreme Court has 
agreed to hear the appeal of two women who run an 
art studio and fear that a Phoenix non-discrimination 
ordinance could be used against them to force them 
to accept orders for same-sex celebrations or else face 
penalties that could include fines and/or jail time.
Joanna Duka and Breanna Koski run Brush & Nib Studio, which offers hand-painted and hand-lettered wedding announcements and invitations, as well as custom calligraphy place cards, vows and weddings certificates. They want their artwork to point to the creator of all beauty: God.
“[W]e have a love and a passion for art and weddings, and there’s such a beautiful picture in marriage of Christ and His love for the Church,” Koski recently stated during an appearance on Fox & Friends.
However, after launching their business in 2015, they became aware of news reports of Christian business owners facing legal trouble for declining to use their services to contribute to same-sex “weddings.” Some of their friends asked them what they would do.
Coupled with the fact that the U.S. Supreme Court had ruled that homosexuals had a right to have their relationships recognized by the State, Duka and Koski realized that they might not have the liberty as Christians to decline orders surrounding same-sex “weddings.” They decided to look into their local laws to learn more.
In 2016, with the aid of the religious liberties organization Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), the women filed a legal complaint to preemptively challenge the Phoenix non-discrimination ordinance, which states that “[n]o person shall, directly or indirectly, refuse, withhold from, or deny to any person, or aid in or incite such refusal, denial or withholding of, accommodations … because of … sexual orientation …”
The law also declares that it is unlawful for any business to “directly or indirectly display, circulate, publicize or mail any advertisement, notice or communication which states or implies that any facility or service shall be refused or restricted because of … sexual orientation …” Therefore, the women could not post on their website any notice that they can only promote marriage between a man and a woman.
“Indeed, Phoenix has already investigated another business for declining to promote a same-sex ceremony for religious reasons and issued a formal report saying [that the law] requires business like Brush & Nib—those that create expression—to promote same-sex wedding ceremonies if they promote opposite-sex wedding ceremonies,” the lawsuit stated.
However, last year, the Maricopa County division of the Superior Court of Arizona ruled in favor of the City, and opined that the law didn’t interfere with Duka and Koski’s religious exercise rights. Judge Karen Mullins defined and limited the concept under the state Constitution as “proselytizing, preaching and prayer,” and attending the church of one’s choice.
“The facts here do not involve any kind of religious worship as contemplated by the Free Exercise Clause. Proselytizing, preaching and prayer are protected by the Free Exercise Clause,” she wrote. “Nothing about the ordinance has prevented the plaintiffs from participating in the customs of their religious beliefs, or has burdened the practice of their religion in any way.”
“The printing of same-sex persons’ names on wedding invitations does not hinder in any way Plaintiffs’ independent exercise of its religious belief by attending the church of their choice, engaging in religious activities or functions, and expressing their beliefs on their business website or literature, or in their personal lives,” Mullins asserted.
She ruled that Duka and Koski are “free to publish their religious beliefs so long as they do not state or imply that same-sex couples are unwelcome as customers.”
The women appealed, and in June, the Arizona Court of Appeals struck down part of the ordinance, but allowed the language most concerning to Brush & Nib to stand. It also suggested as a resolution that Duka and Koski cease making custom wedding-related artwork and invitations, and simply offer general products that they could sell to anyone without issue.
“Appellants are free to discontinue selling custom wedding-related merchandise and maintain the operation of Brush & Nib for its other business operations,” the court wrote. “What Appellants cannot do is use their religion as a shield to discriminate against potential customers.”
Duka and Koski again appealed, and last month, their petition was accepted by the Arizona Supreme Court. A number of faith-based groups have now filed amicus briefs in support of the women, as did Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich. Seven states joined Brnovich in the filing: Arkansas, Louisiana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas, West Virginia and Kentucky.
“[T]he City has no legitimate interest in compelling artists to modify their artistic messages to promote government-favored messages, no matter how well-intentioned,” the amicus brief states. “A government simply cannot force a citizen to engage in or endorse expression—whether saluting a flag, or even passively carrying a message on a license plate.”
“Forcing Petitioners to participate in the recognition and celebration of ceremonies they consider sacred in violation of their religious beliefs, is hardly a ‘trivial, technical or de minimis infraction.’ This is especially so considering that, for each day Petitioners refuse to do so, they can be punished with six months in jail and a fine of $2,500,” it outlines. “The court of appeals erred by applying the wrong standard.”

A Blessed & Merry Christmas to you all!

"Precious in the site of the Lord is the death of His godly ones." (Psalm 116:15)

We are coming to the end of another momentous year, and it has  been a strange, sad and yet hopeful one for me. Four people whom I loved went on to be with the Lord Jesus this year: my father, Pat LaBarbera (see bottom of this email); my best friend Brian Fitzpatrick (shown at right at an Americans For Truth rally); and AFTAH benefactors Peter Huizenga and Ray Young--two of the finest Christian men God has given me the pleasure of knowing.

The Christ of Christ-mas was, in the final analysis, their hope. He is mine, too, and I hope He is yours. My dad--who was a great husband to my mom and father to me, my four sisters and my younger brother Jimmy--humbled himself and accepted Jesus as Savior very late in life. For that I will be eternally grateful.

My friend Brian, once an atheist, was born again in the Lord (John 3) on May 24, 1987 (he put that date on his license plate), and lived for Him from that point onward. Please share his Christian testimony in this blessed holy season. I will miss him but we'll meet again!

Ray Young and Peter Huizenga were faithful Christian family men and  businessmen who put Christ first and never once even considered backing away from biblical Truth, in an age when so many find a way to do just that.

In their honor but more in God's honor, we at Americans For Truth press forward with our noble yet politically incorrect mission. This has been a very interesting year: AFTAH became a microcosm of the Left's evil and homo-fascist "social media censorship" strategy designed to suffocate social conservatives in the Public Square.  Heck, we even got a visit by the FBI! ... read on: 

  • Our Americans For Truth Facebook page was "unpublished" and then "erased" after leftist complaints. 

  • My personal Facebook page has twice been put on 30-day hold after a frivolous "hate violation." (I'm currently still in FB "jail" but I will be "set free" Monday--oh boy, thanks Mark Zuckerberg!)

  • My Twitter page was blocked based on an absurd "hate" warning about a post showing a nasty, anal-sex-promoting "gay" activist giving his critics the finger.

  • AFTAH's website was taken down for two weeks following a frivolous and deceitful complaint by "gay" activist and convicted sex offender Adam Flanders (shown at right).

  • Wasting the FBI's Time & Resources: Flanders later complained to the FBI and they actually sent an agent to my home on Oct. 26!  The agent asked if I planned to harass or threaten Flanders in California. I said of course not, and alerted him to Flanders' history of harassing conservatives with false "stalking" charges. The agent knew that the complaint was meritless but said the Bureau was obligated to check it out. The litigious Flanders is now threatening to sue me (and other social conservatives).

Despite all this, we at Americans For Truth keep on doing exactly what the LGBTQueer Lobby is trying to stop us from doing: speaking out in the media against a nefarious and revolutionary sexual agenda that threatens to silence Christian conservative speech even as it corrupts the hearts and minds of young children.

We'll never quit, because the LGBTQ Lobby never quits, and because it's God's Truth, not ours. I echo what my friend the late Peter Huizenga told me, "I will never give up on God's Truth." I am not intimidated by this Sin Movement, which must be resisted aggressively, even as its errant followers need the love and forgiveness of Jesus. (AFTAH from its inception has boldly defended EX-"gays" like my brother in Christ, Stephen Black.)

Here is the AFTAH media page link, which contains only a portion of our many media appearances this year. Americans For Truth reached hundreds of thousands of people in 2018 -- citizens hungry for someone to give it to them "straight," unapologetically, about Big LGBTQueer.

These days, even many "conservatives" are afraid to oppose homosexuality--and the Republicans have nearly abandoned this crucial moral issue. But not AFTAH.

Below is a list of our most recent articles. The Americans For Truth website is a go-to site for people all over the world who are looking for someone to communicate the "Truth About Homosexuality," minus the Left's and the media's propaganda filters. (And believe me: we still have not gotten close to conveying the full depravity of the Lesbian-Gay-Bi-Trans-Queer agenda.)

Drain Obama’s LGBTQ Swamp – Sen. Mike Lee Blocks Radical Lesbian Legal Activist Chai Feldblum at EEOC as ‘Threat to Marriage’  [click HERE]

[Click on the above graphic to enlarge]: Hey all, we have an opportunity to stop LGBTQ legal activist Chai Feldblum at the EEOC, thanks to Sen. Mike Lee, who has put a stop on her nomination on the Senate floor. Feldblum is an atheist lesbian who essentially believes that "gay rights" (and "trans rights") supersedes Americans' religious freedom. Trump should never have reappointed her, and perhaps he will rescind her appointment with enough pressure.  All the info you need is in this piece, and action points are below. Please take a minute or 2 to make a call to Sen. Lee, your Senators, etc., especially if you're in a red state. 

  1. Thank Sen. Lee, online HERE, or by calling his DC office: 202-224-5444. His Salt Lake City office number is 801-524-5933.
  2. Contact your own state’s U.S. Senators through the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121 and urge them to reject this anti-marriage sexual revolutionary at the EEOC.
  3. Contact the White House online HERE or by calling 202-456-1111. Urge President Trump to drain Obama’s federal LGBTQ swamp by withdrawing the (re)nomination of Obama appointee and LGBTQ legal crusader Chai Feldblum.

Social media giant cites “safety” concerns and being “respectful,” but by not respecting and tolerating Christian conservatives’ views, is Facebook guilty of ‘hate’ and bigotry?

Facebook ‘hates’ conservatives (or at least their ideas): This is the notice AFTAH received Sunday from Facebook. Jason Salamone is an administrator of the AFTAH FB page. We are appealing the decision. Facebook has “unpublished” AFTAH’s or Americans For Truth President Peter LaBarbera’s pages on previous occasions. [See full story HERE]

Tribute to Pat LaBarbera, 1931-2018

Dear Readers: my father passed away in July, to be with God. I posted this note on Facebook, testifying to a miraculous blessing:

I want to thank all of you who prayed for my father, Pat LaBarbera. He passed away Sunday, July 23rd, in his home, quickly and, thankfully, with minimal suffering. I'm overjoyed to report that my father gave his life to Christ Jesus just days before he passed at age 87, in what I regard as a miraculous and God-ordained encounter with hospice chaplain Pastor Paul Nguyen. I was honored to be with him, in his "mancave," as this happened.
My philosopher-dad was one of those very smart people who sought answers to the deep questions of life--some he could not fully know (in this world). In the days leading up to his spiritual encounter with the chaplain, he said he believed in God but not in Jesus as the Son of God. That changed on July 19, as Pastor Paul graciously ministered the Gospel to my dad. Ultimately, my father understood sin as "missing the mark," and that as a sinner he, like everyone, needed Jesus to live eternally with a holy God in Heaven. ("Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life."--1 John 5:12-13)
My dad said in his humbled sinner's prayer, "It is significant that one man took upon himself the corruption of the entire world." Significant, indeed. I am awestruck at the kindness and mercy that God the Father showed my earthly father, Pat. From the bottom of my heart, I thank each of you who faithfully prayed for him. Those prayers were answered, glory to God! 

VIDEO: Defying LGBTQ Lies: Ex-Transgender Grace Harley Describes How Her ‘Sexual Orientation’ Was Completely Changed


“I never wanted to be heterosexual,” says former “transgender” who once “married” a woman.  Was SCOTUS Obergefell decision based on a lie?

A Completely Changed Woman: Grace Harley of One Solitary Voice Ministrieswas completely delivered out of sexual perversion 26 years ago. SCOTUS’ 2015 Obergefell ruling authored by outgoing Justice Anthony Kennedy falsely posits that homosexuality (“sexual orientation”) is “immutable.”

WATCH VIDEO: [click here]

Folks, here is Rev. Grace Harley’s speech at AFTAH’s June 26 “Repeal Obergefell” press event in front of the Supreme Court, to mark the three-year anniversary of the judicial travesty of the Obergefell “gay marriage” ruling. Every day I am confronted by LGBTQ activists who insist that “sexual orientation” cannot be changed. And yet my friend Grace testifies to the opposite–saying [go to 4:25] that she hasn’t had a lustful sexual thought about women since her Christian conversion 26 years ago. Grace, like all of us, cannot change her skin color but she praises the Lord that through His grace and power she radically changed her sexual thoughts and disordered “transgender” lifestyle. (Her reference to the “MCC” is for the Metropolitan Community Church, a “gay activist” church catering to unrepentant homosexuals.) ....
