Via propaganda email from Family Research Council hate group leader Tony Perkins:
Thursday’s hearing in the House Ways and Means Committee wasn’t the first time liberals have tried to use the IRS to do their dirty work — but it might be the most revealing. At a Thursday event that was either unnoticed by the press (or intentionally sidestepped by it), Democrats spent almost three hours bloviating on “How the Tax Code Subsidizes Hate.” Their solution? Strip mainstream Christian organizations — and anyone else guilty of the Left’s version of “hate” — of their tax-exempt status.
“Our tax code,” chairman Richard Neal (D-Mass.) insisted, “is no place for hate. Groups that propagate white supremacy, anti-Semitism, and hatred for the LGBTQ community, among others, do not deserve a government subsidy through tax exemption. Hate is not charitable…”
This is exactly what conservatives warned about after Obergefell. Before the Supreme Court forced same-sex marriage on the country, President Obama’s solicitor general admitted that faith-based organizations would be the single most vulnerable group in America.
Now, Democrats want to weaponize the IRS against Christian nonprofits and others with whom they disagree. But don’t think for a second that they’ll stop with a list of 60. If they succeed in making the Bible “hate speech,” they’ll march on to America’s churches — and then to anyone with politically incorrect views.
A gay male refugee from Chechnya has gone on state TV months after mysteriously disappearing to say sorry for being a ‘disgrace’ to the republic for claiming that he had been threatened and blackmailed in Chechnya after coming out as gay.
The story of Movsar Eskerhanov began when the kidnappers forced the young man to confess to sexual orientation in the camera due to the fact that Eskerhanov could not pay them 200 thousand rubles, which the criminals requested for not showing the video to anyone. The kidnappers posted the video and the young man was forced to flee in Stavropol Krai, and then in Moscow. Eskerhanov later went to Germany to request political asylum because of the history
Movsar Eskerhanov told TIME magazine earlier this year that he feared for his life in the country which has arrested and tortured over 200 people have this year alone for being gay with some other men missing to never be seen again and who are presumed dead.
Eskerhanov remained at a German refugee camp where other Chechens recognized him and attacked him.
Later he was refused asylum by the German government.
Not long after that Eskerhanov mysteriously disappeared for months until earlier this week, when he resurfaced on state television for an investigation by Chechen government-controlled news network Grozny on the countries anti-gay purge.
Suddenly, Eskerhanov claims that he was set up by the media and framed to say he was gay before claiming that his coming out was made under the effects of epilepsy medication.
He said: “They disgraced me before the Chechen people and the Chechen leader, I was framed. That’s why I apologize to the residents of Chechnya, the leadership of Chechnya, the Chechens living in the North Caucasus and Europe.”
Chechens who criticize the republic’s leader, Ramzan Kadyrov, are routinely forced to give televised apologies, leading many to surmise that Eskerhanov disappearance was in fact a reprogramming detention with torture and threats and that his apology was coerced and that he is doing it to keep his family safe and himself alive.

Since you’re here …
We have a favor to ask. Unlike many other LGBT blogs and news sites, we haven’t installed intrusive ads– nor do we follow the typical LGBT media PR stream. We want to keep our journalism and historical reporting as open and honest as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Back2Stonewall’s independent voice takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce most of which comes from out own pockets. We do it because we believe our perspective and integrity matters.
If you can please help us with a small donation to cover the sites expenses and its evolution we would greatly appreciate it.
Crissle West — writer, comedian, and co-host of The Read podcast — popped by Comedy Central’s Drunk History this week to dutifully drain a few glasses of boozer and retell the story of the Stonewall Riots, and Marsha. P. Johnson’s involvement in it and got it all wrong, basically just telling the same tired trans-activists narrative lie of that fateful evening on June 28, 1969.
West’s version of the same old lies and rewriting of history by trans-activists with an agenda to steal Stonewall from the gay men and lesbians and put trans-people as the stars of this historical event when in actuality they were only a small part of the supporting cast.
FACT: Marsha Johnson was homeless because she had mental health problems. She suffered psychotic breaks and a multiple personality disorder. And while loved by many was actually banned from many of the gay bars in the Village.
FACT: She was not a customer at the Stonewall. She wasn’t inside the Stonewall. Neither was Sylvia Rivera. The only person who ever said Sylvia Rivera was inside the bar was Rivera herself and not one confirmed patron ever saw her of Johnson in the bar.
FACT: Johnson did not “spark” the riots. She did not throw a shot glass inside the Stonewall. No one did. And she did not give a speech. In her own words she was not near the bar when the riot started. There was no one person who “sparked” the riot, although the closest candidate would be a lesbian who resisted being hustled into a police car. A lesbian. Not a crossdresser. Not a transgender.
FACT: The Stonewall riots were 3 nights, not 2.
FACT: Gay youth did not have access to bars and dance clubs as the video claims. In fact, there was a group of homeless white and Latino gay kids living on the street near the Stonewall and they – not transsexuals or transgenders – were the ones who fought most fiercely.
FACT: The rioters were overwhelmingly gay male. They were largely white (reflecting the makeup of NYC in 1969), but there was substantial Latino and African American participation. There were only a tiny number of crossdressers at Stonewall, in the range of 2-4, and Johnson was the only transgender present. This is out of a cumulative 3-night crowd of 2000. There were far more heterosexual rioters at Stonewall than crossdressers or transgenders.
Every FRC friend must understand what’s happening and stand up.
The biblical truth of “male” and “female” is the cornerstone of society. It is the foundation of marriage and family. America cannot survive without living by these biological, psychological, and spiritual realities, can we?
Here is what Jesus so plainly stated in Matthew 19:4, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning made them male and female…”
The unimaginable has become reality under President Obama. He has become an outspoken ally of the radical LGBTQ+ movement (that’s “Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Questioning”).
A little over a year ago, his attorney general issued a directive, infamously known as the “Transgender Memorandum,” that ordered hundreds of radicalized government attorneys to sue municipalities, school districts, and businesses unwilling to make special accommodations for those who, despite their biological realities, see themselves as a different sex.
With the president on board, it should come as no surprise to you that the mainstream media, Hollywood, and even major corporations are also advancing the cause of the sexual revolutionaries and labeling those of us who oppose it as bigots.
Why are President Obama, the mainstream media, and the “progressive” elites pushing so hard to force the LGBTQ+ agenda on America?
The answer is simple: POWER.
The suppression of biblical truth creates moral confusion which strengthens the heavy hand of big government. Without God, something must fill the void. And that something is an all-powerful government that intrudes into every aspect of life.
The threat to religious liberty in America is very real. And be forewarned: If religious freedom falls, so do all the other freedoms we cherish as Americans.
When Houston’s mayor tried to impose a citywide accommodation for those who consider themselves transgendered, FRC not only exposed this blatant abuse of power, but mobilized the voters of Houston to overturn the mayor’s mandate.
When Chaplain Wes Modder was going to be drummed out of the Navy for sharing biblical truth in a private counseling session, FRC stepped in and helped save the career of this decorated officer.
When Kim Davis, a county clerk in Kentucky, was jailed for refusing to sign her name to same-sex marriage licenses, FRC helped make her plight a front-page story, and Kim was released from jail.
In the fight to preserve morality and religious freedom, FRC does more than any other organization to counter the propaganda of the mainstream media with the truth.
FRC’s daily “Washington Watch” radio program wins the hearts and minds of Americans coast to coast by apprising them of how the actions of the Obama administration are hurting our country.
If you watch any of the TV networks, you’ll notice that FRC is in the news more than ever before. After all, it was FRC that helped make religious freedom the key issue in this election year.
P.S. We rely totally on contributions from Americans like you with the courage and insight to push back the government-sponsored depravity and hold the line for our children and grandchildren. Please give for their sake, and the Lord’s. Thank you.
Urge your Members of Congress to Oppose the so-called “Equality Act,” a supercharged version of ENDA that equals trouble for the freedom to believe
Equality is imperative in a civil society, but Senator Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) and Representative David Cicilline (D-R.I.) apparently do not understand equality. They recently introduced a bill that is subversively entitled the “Equality Act” (S. 1858 and H.R. 3185). If allowed to pass, it would act as a supercharged version of the failed — and likewise inaccurately titled — Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA).
The entire purpose of the “Equality Act” (better titled the “Un-equality Act”) is to provide special privileges to people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered by incorporating sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity into laws regarding employment, like ENDA would. But it doesn’t stop there. It would also encompass laws governing public accommodations, public facilities, public educational institutions, private employment, housing, credit, and jury selection. This “Un-equality Act” would change more than twenty-five provisions of the U.S. Code and would effectively require high schools to allow boys in the girls’ locker rooms, strip elementary schools of the authority to dismiss a kindergarten teacher for transitioning from a male to a female during the course of the school year, and could force religious hospitals to provide sex-change operations and family-owned businesses to affirm such behavior.
Not only that, but this sweeping legislation specifically limits the ability of people who object to its requirements from seeking accommodations based on their religious beliefs in natural marriage. Thus, in the battle between special rights for homosexuals and freedom, the Equality Act strips conscientious objectors of their freedom and would, by law, require their compliance with the LGBT agenda.
Act now to ensure religious liberties are not trampled at the feet of liberal LGBT activists. Contact your Members of Congress today, and tell them to oppose the inaccurately-titled Equality Act. Call your Congressman and Senators at(202) 224-3121, or email them at the link below and ask them to call for a vote on this critical legislation today.
Urge your Members of Congress to Oppose the Equality Act
Sincerely, Family Research Council
P.S. Please forward this alert to friends, family and fellow church members, and post to your favorite social networks.
The fact that the FRC will always blatantly lie about how the”Equality Act” or any LGBT civil rights bill would “require high schools to allow boys in the girls’ locker rooms”, “force religious hospitals to provide sex-change operations” and give gays and lesbians getting “special privileges” while “religion”and the FRC which hides under that moniker is a protected class in the 1964 Civil Rights Act is typical of their propaganda.
We can no longer stay silent. We must fight this propaganda and the FRC and show to everyone what hateful liars and evil human beings they actually are.
The Comcast Corporation has donated 1.5 million dollars in Public Service Advertissement time to Philadelphia’s re-write of LGBT history and it’s LGBT 50th Anniversary Celebration in Philidelphia over the July 4th Weekend Celebration
Via press release:
Organizers announced today that Comcast Corporation is the lead marketing sponsor of the National LGBT 50th Anniversary Celebration. Comcast is providing $1.5 million worth of airtime to broadcast a 30-second National LGBT 50th Anniversary public service announcement (PSA). “Comcast NBCUniversal is a longstanding supporter of national and regional LGBT organizations. We are grateful to Comcast NBCUniversal for its generous support of the National LGBT 50th Anniversary Celebration. Through Comcast’s support, the 50th Anniversary PSA will be the most broadcast LGBT television PSA in history,” stated Malcolm Lazin, Chair, National LGBT 50th Anniversary Celebration. “The PSA commemorates the launch of the organized LGBT movement at Independence Hall, civil rights progress, and shared American values.” The organized LGBT civil rights movement was launched when activists from New York, Washington D.C., and Philadelphia staged demonstrations for equality each Fourth of July from 1965 to 1969. When 40 activists picketed in front of Independence Hall in 1965, it was the largest demonstration for gay equality in world history.
Many in the LGBT community have questioned Philadelphia’s outrageous claim that its Annual Reminders, which were important moments in LGBT history, were actually the beginning of “the organized LGBT civil rights movement” and they have been called out on it numerous times. But they refuse to stop using it. The Society for Human Rights was was established in Chicago in 1924. The Mattachine Society, was founded in 1950 by Harry Hays. In 1961 Frank Kameny and Jack Nichols, co-founded the Washington, D.C., branch of the Mattachine Society, launched some of the earliest public protests by gays and lesbians including a picket line at the White House on April 17, 1965 almost 3 months BEFORE Philadelphia’s first Reminder.
This is just one of many recent LGBT history re-writes of our history for profit and for certain agendas’ sake. Take for example Sylvia Rivera throwing the “first heel” at Stonewall. Chad Hunter Griffin from HRC being hailed as the “Rosa Parks” of same-sex marriage and now Philadelphia’s LGBT leaders desperate need for attention and profit by claiming to be the “beginning of the organized LGBT movement” erasing and disrespecting decades of LGBT history and activists before it.
Our history is so precious and delicate. Philadelphia’s Annual Reminders were an important and integral part of our LGBT history and were worthy of a stand alone celebration. But they WERE NOT the beginning of our “organized” movement.
Tony Per- KKK- ins and the FRC may have BLOCKED me on Twitter but they are still stupid enough to send me emails.
Today in the latest Family Research Council money beg………
URGENT: Help Match $50,000 “Free to Believe” Challenge Grant
As a friend of Family Research Council (FRC), I trust you are aware that the persecuted church isn’t just overseas anymore. It’s gaining traction in America.
And being aware yourself, I pray you will also help wake up others . . . before it’s too late.
So I’m asking you to help double or even triple FRC’s $50,000 “Free to Believe” Challenge Grant.
We need to wake up Americans to the rampaging persecution of the American Church!
The persecution toll is rising:
The state of Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries—in concert with the homosexual rights movement—has decimated the once-successful small business of Aaron and Melissa Klein, because the Klein’s refused to bake a cake for a same-sex “wedding.” Today, Aaron drives a garbage truck and the Klein face $150,000 in fines. ( The Klein’s violated the states business discrimination law. They CHOSE to close their bakery and do only on-line orders, Since then Aaron might have a good paying city job w/benefits driving a sanitation department truck but in the meantime the Klein’s have made a FORTUNE touring the “hate circuit” appearing around the country and right wing conferences and rallies. WK)
The state of Washington—and radical homosexual activists—are threatening to wipe out the business and seize the home and personal assets of 70-year-old florist, Barronelle Stutzman,because she politely declined to participate in a same-sex “wedding.” (Baroness was fined a whopping $1000.00 + $1.00 court costs for violating the Washington Law Against Discrimination ,But thanks to Dana Loesch and her wingnut media friends Baronelle will walk away with $167,000.oo dollars thanks to a GoFundMe campaign. WK.)
In all such cases, Christians—American Christians—are suffering. And it’s just the tip of the iceberg.
And in each case, the target is the gospel of Jesus Christ.
It is being shut down by any means at hand. Concepts like “sexual liberty,” “tolerance” and “political correctness” are just tools to achieve the goal of suppressing religious freedom, the freedom to believe.
Is there hope? YES! If we stand up for our rights so the doors to the gospel stay open in America.
At a recent FRC press conference, Aaron Klein, one of the greatest heroes of the faith I know, cited an FRC survey showing that 81% of Americans support the freedom to believe and follow religious beliefs free from government intrusion, even if they openly disagree with the same-sex “marriage” movement.
Then Aaron, who has sacrificed his whole business for our faith, said,
“It would almost appear as if we have lost the battle for the culture as Christians. I would say that’s not true.I say that we can become relevant. I say that we can fight for our rights. I say that we should fight for our rights . . . we’re called to put on the full armor of God—and stand.”
Let us stand. With Aaron. With each other. For each other.
And most importantly, for Christ.
I ask you to stand today with a generous gift to help MORE THAN DOUBLE the $50,000 “Free to Believe” Challenge Grant.
FRC will use your gift to expose and oppose the attack on our religious freedom, our freedom to believe.
We will reach millions of Americans and rally millions of Christians through our daily and weekly radio broadcasts . . . our 57,000-member Watchman on the Wall Pastors Network . . . and through dozens of media appearances by FRC experts in the coming months.
We will provide critical research, facts and arguments to help members of Congress and state governmentsas they craft laws to protect “freedom to believe” and make sure violations like I’ve described STOP HAPPENING in America.
Will you stand with a gift now? Thank you in advance for answering the call.
In an attempt to save her political career for a 2016 run and to make “gay” the wedge issue that it has always been for the GOP. Michele Bachmann is warning everyone that the gay community will “abolish age of consent laws… so that adults will be able to freely prey on little children sexually.”
During a Wednesday appearance on the conservative radio show “Faith & Liberty,” Rep. Michele Bachmann accused the “gay community” of pushing “deviancy,” “tyranny” and child rape. The Minnesota Republican warned that the gay community will “abolish age of consent laws, which means we will do away with statutory rape laws so that adults will be able to freely prey on little children sexually. That’s the deviance that we’re seeing embraced in our culture today.” She also predicted that gay rights advocates will legalize polygamy and enact “hate speech laws across the United States” in order to bring about “the rise of tyranny.”
Bachmann is shameless in her vicious lies. But I tell you whats shameful is that all our gay organizations remain silent and never stand up to them and demand accountability and apologies for horrible lies and propaganda like this and play the “let them talk ther’ll hang themselves” game. Well guess what? They don’t! They have let the Bachmanns’, Perkins, and the whole bigot bunch talk for decades and they will never stop. Its time to hold them accountable for thier comments. And its time for Gay Inc. to get off their asses to do so. Tell me didn’t we at one time have an organization called GLAAD that was supposed to deal with defamation? Do your fucking job already and stop throwing award galas.
“I was taken to the Regina Police Headquarters with my hands cuffed behind my back. There, the police took everything on my person except my socks, jeans, underwear and a T-shirt. As they would treat a common criminal, they took my eye-glasses, my wedding ring, my watch, etc.– apparently part of standard procedure to prevent inmates from harming themselves. It seemed a bit of overkill to me, but I suppose they were under orders to treat me the same as other inmates.
“Inside the small, 5-and-a-half by 8-foot jail cell with nothing but a cement cot and a metal sink/toilet, I asked for a Bible to read, but they would not provide one. I’m still trying to figure out how a Bible could be used for suicide. Anyway, I had a lot of time to think and pray so that’s what I did. It was my first time in a prison and I wouldn’t recommend it!
“Bill was released after a couple of hours, but I was kept in jail because now the Border Security agency wanted to take over my case. I was told that since I had been arrested by Canadian police, I had allegedly violated the sole condition of my entry into Canada. (I responded that neither Bill nor I believed we were violating Canadian law, as Bill’s right to protest at public universities–including U.-Regina–had already been validated in the courts.)
“Because of Customs’ involvement, I had to spend the night in the holding cell. Thank God Bill had graciously given me his cot cushion or I would have been sleeping on cement. The next day, I was informed that there would be another hearing about whether I could stay in the country. Since I had planned to leave Thursday morning anyway–and faced the prospect of at least another day in prison, I told the Border Security agent in charge (Joe) that I would be willing to leave right away since being expelled might be the verdict of the government anyway.” – Hate group grifter and con-man Peter Labarbera, in a money beg for his defense on “mischief” charges in Canada
