Beginning August 4th a group which calls itself Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) is organizing what they call an “academy” to “train young people (as well as older pro-family advocates) how to answer ‘gay’ activist misinformation and fight the homosexual-bisexual-transsexual agenda.”
AFTAH has a long history of telling lies about Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) people and recently was designated a “hate group” by the Southern Poverty Law Center. AFTAH’s literature about their forthcoming “academy” calls the LGBT rights movement “destructive to America” and invites people to donate money to fund scholarships for people as young as 14-years-old to attend.
We feel strongly that youth should not be taught to hate their peers and thus fuel the cycle of self-loathing, depression and suicide which too many LGBTQ youth experience. We feel that bigotry must be vocally and publicly opposed, especially when haters try to recruit young people.
We invite you and your organization to become co-sponsors of this protest and help us organize others to attend – simply email LGBTliberation@aol.com or telephone 773.209.1187
