LISTEN: Audio of AFTAH Press Conference Featuring Black Pastors Denouncing SPLC’s ‘Hate Group’ Smears
African American leaders bristle at SPLC claim that they are tools of “white organizers”
Dear Friend of AFTAH,
Please take a half hour to listen to our press conference last week outside the Southern Poverty Law Center's headquarters in Montgomery, AL. [click HERE to listen.] We had a wonderful event -- Speaking Truth to Arrogant Leftist Power! Note the SPLC's racist-tinged response implying that the Black leaders who participated can't think and act for themselves. Of course, the SPLC's "hate group" smear against Americans For Truth and other pro-family groups is preposterous. If we are haters, then every leader -- black, white or brown -- who speaks out in the public square against the aggressively anti-Christian Homosexual/Transsexual Agenda is a "hater."
This event is what Americans For Truth is all about: calling out the Left for their pro-homosexual lies, and educating Americans on the "other side" of the pro-"gay" movement that the liberal media regularly covers up. AFTAH will continue to fight the Left's evil campaign to demonize and marginalize Christians and all citizens who oppose the Homosexual Lobby -- which corrupts children, undermines marriage and public health, and leads the Secular Left's assault on religious freedom. You can help us stay in the fight by making an online gift to AFTAH at www.americansfortruth.com/donate/. (Regular mail: AFTAH, PO Box 5522, Naperville, IL 60567-5522.) Thank you and keep on standing unapologetically for Truth! -- Peter LaBarbera, www.aftah.org
North Carolina pastor Patrick Wooden criticized the Southern Poverty Law Center for implying that Black leaders cannot think for themselves and had to be "brought" to the SPLC press conference by "white organizers." Here he is interviewed by a Montgomery TV reporter after the AFTAH press conference. In the background is a large SPLC banner decrying "HATE." Go online and click on photo to enlarge.
