MONTGOMERY, Alabama -- How would you like it if someone compared you to the KKK and spread a lie that you're a "HATER" -- simply because you agree with the Bible and oppose the radical agenda to normalize homosexual behavior and "gay marriage"? Well, that's exactly how we at AFTAH feel about the Southern Poverty Law Center's despicable campaign to demonize Americans For Truth as a "hate group" by putting us in the same league as racist, anti-Semitic fringe outfits like the Klan and Neo-Nazis.
But AFTAH is fighting back against the SPLC's left-wing slanders! As I write this, we are preparing for our press conference tomorrow here in Montgomery, AL -- led by godly Black leaders like my friends Dr. Patrick Wooden and DL Foster who refuse to sit back and let the SPLC steal "civil rights" to advance its radical sexual agenda.

Raleigh pastor Dr. Patrick Wooden rejects the comparison of black civil rights to sinful and unnatural homosexual behavior.
MONTGOMERY, Alabama – A coalition of African American pastors and pro-family Christian and Jewish leaders is holding a press conference at noon tomorrow (the day after Martin Luther King Day) outside the headquarters of the Southern Poverty Law Center — to protest the SPLC’s smearing of pro-family groups that oppose homosexual activism as “hate groups”:
WHERE: Outside the SPLC headquarters, 400 Washington Ave., Montgomery, Alabama
WHEN: Tuesday, Jan. 17, 2012, noon, Central Standard (Montgomery, AL) Time
WHO: Scheduled speakers:
- Peter LaBarbera, Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH), Chicago, IL (the SPLC has smeared AFTAH as a “hate group”);
- Dr. Patrick Wooden, pastor, Upper Room Church of God in Christ (COGIC), Raleigh, NC;
- DL Foster, founder, Gay Christian Movement Watch, Atlanta, GA;
- Matt Barber, Director of Cultural Affairs, Liberty Counsel, Lynchburg, VA;
- Tim Johnson, Fredrick Douglass Foundation, Washington, D.C.;
- Rachel Conner, representing Scott Lively's Abiding Truth Ministries (smeared by SPLC as a “hate group”)
- Pastor Glen Sawyer, New Mt. Zion Church of God in Christ, Elizabeth City, NC
- Pastor Wil Nichols, Victorious Praise Fellowship COGIC, Durham, NC
- Pastor Jon Robinson, Kingdom C.O.M.E. Ministries, Clairton, PA
- Pastor Kenneth Jefferson, Greater Harvest COGIC
The following pro-family leaders and groups will issue supporting statements:
- Rabbi Yehuda Levin, Rabbinical Alliance of America, Brooklyn, NY;
- Laurie Higgins, Illinois Family Institute (smeared as “hate group”)
- Arthur Goldberg, author, “Light in the Closet: Torah, Homosexuality, and the Power to Change,” New Jersey;
- Linda Harvey, Mission America, Columbus, OH
- Brian Camenker, Mass Resistance, Boston, MA (smeared as “hate group”)
Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans For Truth, which is sponsoring the press event, recently interviewed Pastor Wooden, who said that the SPLC’s gambit of labeling mainstream pro-family groups that oppose homosexual activism as “hate groups” is seriously damaging the SPLC’s credibility. Wooden also debunked the “civil rights” analogy used by “gay” activists, saying it is wrong to compare “my beautiful blackness” to changeable homosexual perversion.
LaBarbera said the SPLC is engaged in a thinly-veiled, one-sided campaign to demonize adherents of traditional Judeo-Christian morality. He noted that despite the considerable hatred and anti-Christian bigotry emanating from homosexual activists (e.g., Dan Savage’s vile hate-site, Santorum[dot]com), the SPLC has never labeled a “gay” organization or website as “hateful.”

NC pastor to lead press conference condemning SPLC’s smear campaign against Christian pro-family organizations as “hate groups”
Dr. Patrick Wooden, Sr., says the Southern Poverty Law Center is losing credibility by smearing pro-family groups opposed to the homosexual activist movement as "hate groups."
This is Part One of my interview [click HERE to listen] with Dr. Patrick Wooden, pastor at Upper Room Church of God in Christ, in Raleigh, NC. This interview was pre-recorded and aired January 14, 2012. Pastor Wooden will be leading a contingent of African American pastors at an AFTAH-sponsored press conference Tuesday, Jan. 17 outside of the headquarters of the Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery, AL. The SPLC infamously labeled Americans For Truth and several other Christian pro-family groups as “hate groups” due to their strong opposition to the homosexual activist lobby. (Other groups smeared by the SPLC include Family Research Council, American Family Association and Scott Lively’s Abiding Truth Ministries.)
Wooden is a leader in the effort to preserve the definition of marriage constitutionally in North Carolina as one man, one woman — and he is regularly tarred as a “bigot” and “homophobe” by homosexual activists in his state. Here he debunks the LGBT analogy of “gay rights” to Black civil rights — affirming that there is no connection between “my beautiful blackness” and deviant sexual behavior condemned by God. (Last year, Wooden interviewed me at his church in Raleigh; go HERE and click link for the video, “Fighting Homosexuality in America.”) – Peter LaBarbera, www.aftah.org
