The Gay Mafia and America’s aggressive homosexual agenda

One of FOTM’s faithful readers recently sent me an email of palpable frustration, a sentiment I share and no doubt by you as well. She wrote:

Is it just me or is something really in the perverted wind of this country? I turn on the TV and suddenly on a soap I have watched decades, a character who has been on there for a few years is suddenly a transgender. I watch a Sunday show on PBS, “Calling the Midwife,” and suddenly a supposedly happily married man sexually approaches a stranger in a man’s restroom. Some of my favorite shows, like “CSI” have gay characters, and the list goes on. ABC-Disney is making a sitcom about the life of a gay man, Dan Savage, who is one of the nastiest-mouthed human beings out there.

How can 4% of the population control 80% of the viewing?

I saw a couple of years ago that Obama’s senior adviser Valerie Jarrett went to Hollywood and demanded changes. A few months ago, Ulsterman wrote that Jarrett was overheard in OUR White House bragging they have so much more to do to us…. Our viewing choices are shrinking daily. Not to mention the sad world we are leaving the children.

Indeed, how can such a small percentage of the population — the percentage of self-identified LGBTs in the U.S. population actually is less than 2% — control so much of entertainment, the media, and pop culture?

Here’s how.

Ever heard of the Gay Mafia? This is Wikipedia’s definition:

The “Gay Mafia” and “Velvet Mafia” are typically associated with the upper echelons of the fashion and entertainment industries, and the terms are also used humorously by gay people themselves. The term was widely used in the 1980s and 1990s, and could often be seen in the pages of the New York Post…. “Lavender Mafia” refers to the perceived homosexual elements of life within the Catholic church.

But Wikipedia doesn’t go far enough because the word “mafia” is undefined. This is how the Oxford Dictionaries defines “mafia”:

  1. An organized international body of criminals, operating originally in Sicily and now especially in Italy and the US and having a complex and ruthless behavioral code.
  2. Any organized group using extortion and other criminal methods.
  3. A closed group of people in a particular field, having a controlling influence.

Clearly, definition no. 1 is not appropriate for the Gay Mafia because it’s not about Sicily or Italians. Definitions nos. 2 and 3 are more appropriate. The term “Gay Mafia” therefore may be defined as:

An organized group of homosexuals who use extortion and other illicit methods to exert a controlling influence over a particular industry or field.

The Gay Mafia can be found in at least three industries or fields: the media; Hollywood; and the Catholic Church.

1. Gay Mafia in The Media

Ever heard of an organization called the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA)?

Logo of National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association

According to the NLGJA’s web site:

The National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA) is an organization of journalists, media professionals, educators and students who work within the news industry to foster fair and accurate coverage of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues. NLGJA opposes all forms of workplace bias and provides professional development to its members.

Wikipedia says the NLGJA, based in Washington, D.C., was founded in 1990. It currently has about 700 members in the U.S. and abroad, primarily journalists and students in print, broadcast, and online media.

The NLJGA exerts its influence over journalism and the media in the following ways:

  1. From its inception, NLJGA hosts an annual convention inviting their members to participate in top-level training sessions, thought-provoking discussions, and social and professional networking events.
  2. The organization’s most noteworthy tangible contribution to the journalism industry is the NLGJA Stylebook Supplement on LGBT Terminology — a guide used by journalists when writing about the LGBT “community.”
  3. “Sexual orientation in the workplace” seminars offered free of charge to news organizations to provide an LGBT-friendly office environment for homosexual journalists, and to push for domestic partnership benefits at newspapers across the nation. 
  4. The seminars evolved into the Newsroom Outreach Project — meetings with broadcast, print and online newsroom leaders across the country on correct terminology and treatment of LGBT in the workplace.
  5. Rapid Response Task Force is a team of LGBT journalists who address any news piece that readers report as being offensive or inaccurate and inform writers and readers of the correct terminology.
  6. Student outreach via the NLGJA Student Central website, which provides support to young journalists in their early years with scholarships and internships, online networking opportunities, articles about LGBT issues in journalism, student project opportunities, NLGJA membership information, and links to online resources.

The video below is about a NLGJA fundraiser on April 16, 2015 in New York City’s Prince George Ballroom which featured an auction of items of the Chippendale male strippers. Attendees included ABC’s Meredith Viera (who was the main speaker), CNN president Jeff Zuckerman, and other media stars from the big networks CNN, MSNBC and Fox News.

The video’s narrator, news media watchdog Accuracy In Media (AIM) editor Cliff Kincaid, says that the NLGJA is subsidized by the media on both the left and the so-called right (Fox). According to the UK’s Digital Spy, in 2006, CNN donated US$100,000 to the NLGJA.

Kincaid warns that the next phase of NLGJA’s media campaign is paving the way for America’s acceptance of “transgendered rights,” and after that, of the sado-masochistic “leather community.”

WND also warns about a coming “media blitz” to “normalize transgenderism.” Former Olympian champion Bruce Jenner’s “I’m a woman” coming-out as a male-to-female transgender on last Friday’s ABC primetime special with Dianne Sawyer is only the beginning.

 2. Gay Mafia in Hollywood

That there a powerful homosexual clique in the entertainment industry is no secret. Perhaps the most infamous “outing” of Hollywood’s Gay Mafia was that by former Hollywood powerhouse Michael Ovitz, “the man who once was king.” In 2002, in a series of interviews with Vanity Fair magazine’s Bryan Burrough, Ovitz blamed his downfall on the vicious backstabbing by Hollywood’s Gay Mafia. 

Note: Ovitz is a Hollywood talent agent who co-founded Creative Artists Agency (CAA) in 1975 and served as its chairman until 1995, after which he briefly was president of the Walt Disney Company from October 1995 to January 1997.

According to Burrough, a “driving factor” in Ovitz’s decision to do the Vanity Fair interviews was his “a burning need to name names, to throw light on the shadowy Hollywood cabal he believes did him in. He calls it the Gay Mafia, though several of its ‘members’ aren’t gay, and much of what he says about these men is nasty and unprintable. In Ovitz’s eyes the cabal’s demagogic leader . . . is [David] Geffen, laying waste to all Ovitz held dear, spreading rumors about his family, at the same time he was poisoning the business deals that would have saved AMG [Artists Management Group]—all things Geffen denies. Geffen’s partners in crime, Ovitz alleges, include Ovitz’s onetime protégés at the Creative Artists Agency, Bryan Lourd, Kevin Huvane, and Richard Lovett.”

Note: David Geffen is the openly homosexual who co-founded DreamWorks with director Steven Spielberg.

Michael Ovitz, David Geffen, Bernard Weinraub

According to Ovitz, “David [Geffen] tries to destroy everything close to me. He went after my kids. He spread rumors about them. The guy is totally immoral, and he paints himself like this priest.” The vehicle Geffen repeatedly used to sabotage Ovtiz’s image is New York Times’ Hollywood correspondent Bernard Weinraub, whom Ovitz called the Gay Mafia conspiracy’s town crier and who wrote a list of nasty articles on Ovitz over the years. Ovitz claimed he had twice met with the newspaper’s senior staff, including publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr., but “it’s been no use.” As Ovitz put it, “Geffen comes up with the spin, and Weinraub parrots it back, quoting the same people over and over. There’s no balance in their coverage of me. None. Zero.”

3. gay mafia in The Catholic Church

Even the Catholic Church has a “lavender mafia” that, while not exerting the kind of power and influence on American culture as the media and Hollywood Gay Mafia, nevertheless works to corrupt the church and undermine its teachings.

In an article for Life Site News, John Westen describes a 2012 paper written by Polish priest and Ph.D. in Philosophy, Fr. Dariusz Oko, With the Pope Against the Homoheresy,” in which Fr. Oko recounted his discovery of a “huge homosexual underground in the Church.” 

Fr. Oko writes that “I began my work as a struggle against a deadly, external threat to Christianity, but then gradually discovered that the enemy is not only outside the Church, but within it, as well,”

Archbishop Juliusz Paetz

Oko reveals his own run in with a homosexual clique in the Roman Catholic Church blocking justice for those abused by homosexual clergy, headed by the homosexual Archbishop Emeritus of Poznań Juliusz Paetz. Oko learned of the archbishop “from a seminarian who told me, all trembling from emotions and terror, about his having been molested by his own ordinary. He was at a brink of losing faith, as well as mental and spiritual integrity. Our interventions at various levels of Church hierarchy were of no avail, however; we encountered a wall that could not be overcome, even in a case as self-evident as that.” What finally broke through the wall, was “a tremendous commotion in the media and reaching the Pope [Benedict XVI] himself. Otherwise, everything was blocked at lower levels of local or Vatican hierarchy.”

Describing the formation of homosexual cliques of clergy Fr. Oko says:

They know well, however, that they may be exposed and embarrassed, so they shield one another by offering mutual support. They build informal relationships reminding of a clique or even mafia, aim at holding particularly those positions which offer power and money.

When they achieve a decision-making position, they try to promote and advance mostly those whose nature is similar to theirs, or at least who are known to be too weak to oppose them. This way, leading positions in the Church may be held by people suffering from deep internal wounds.

They may actually achieve a dominating position in many areas of church hierarchy, become a “backroom elite” which actually has tremendous power in deciding about important nominations and the whole life of the Church. Indeed, they may even prove to be too powerful for honest, well-meaning bishops.

Fr. Oko also identifies the “the fear and confusion of the clergy, particularly in certain dioceses and congregations, when faced with” the topic of homosexuality, “escape into silence, unable to articulate even elementary statements on the teaching of the Church on the subject. What are they afraid of? Where does that fear in entire groups of mature, adult men come from? They must be afraid of some influential lobby which wields its power and which they may fall into disfavor with.

CRUCIFIX SEEN AS POPE ARRIVES TO LEAD GENERAL AUDIENCE AT VATICAN

Fr. Oko maintains that Pope Benedict XVI was well aware of this subculture within the Church and publicly lamented its “filth” and the damage it had caused, and “made cleansing the Church from homosexual abuse and preventing its reoccurrence in the future one of the priorities of his pontificate. He removed compromised clergymen from their offices with much energy. In the very first months following his election, still in 2005, he had an instruction issued to strictly forbid ordaining untreated homosexuals. The instruction was preceded by a letter sent from the Holy See to bishops around the world, ordering that priests with homosexual tendencies be immediately removed from any educational functions at seminaries.” Later in 2008, the Pope issued a directive forbidding even non-practicing homosexuals from becoming seminarians.

Ominously, when Fr. Oko wrote his paper in late 2012, he warned that the homolobby “represents the very centre of internal opposition against the Pope” and that Pope Benedict XVI “cannot do it all by himself.” He “needs each and everyone of us. He needs support and healthy preaching in every local Church . . . defending the truth of salvation, no matter how much it should cost us.” Fr. Oko said that “If homolobbyists are allowed to act freely, in a dozen or so years they may destroy entire congregations and dioceses,” resulting in “entire countries and nations” leaving the Church.

It is the contention of Leo Zagami, author of Pope Francis: The Last Pope?, that Pope Benedict XVI resigned because of the power of the church’s homosexual underground.

This is what Fr. Oko urges faithful Catholics to do:

  1. Recognize the priests who are homosexual: Fr. Oko warns that active homosexual priests are “devious” and “masters of camouflage.” Although members of the homolobby are a relatively small group, they often hold key positions (which they are very anxious to achieve), create a close network of relationships and support one another, “which is what makes them dangerous.” One way to recognize them is  “by their fruit” (cf. St. Matthew 7:16).
  2. The homosexual mafia in the Church must be dealt with in a very professional way. We must act like a prosecutor or an officer in the battlefield.
  3. It is important that we find a large group of people of goodwill to protect us and support what we do. That group should include clergymen, as high in the hierarchy as possible; experts in various fields; archive records specialists; lawyers; policemen; journalists; and as many believers as possible.
  4. Exchange information, documents, and evidence. The global network of homolobbies and homomafias must be counterbalanced by a network of honest people.
  5. Make use of the Internet, an excellent tool that makes it possible to create a global community of people concerned about the fate of the Church.
  6. Be mindful that we are like “sheep sent among wolves,” and so we must be “as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves” (St. Matthew 10:16). We must have the courage to stand up against evildoers, as Christ had the courage to stand up against the Pharisees of his times. “God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7).
  7. All interventions should be made with utmost respect and love for every person, including the abuser.

Straight Pride Posters at Ohio University

image

The following is by Nick Vassar of the Huffington Post:

Students at an Ohio university say they were “blindsided” earlier this week after homophobic messages appeared around campus.

Signs advocating for a week of “straight pride” appeared on Ohio’s Youngstown State University campus earlier this week. The anonymously posted messages called for students to kick off finals week “by not annoying the shit out of everyone about your sexual orientation,” and not “telling everyone how ‘different’ you are.”

Smaller text at the bottom of the sign reads: “Brought to you by the students that are sick of hearing about your LGBT pride. Nobody cares about what you think you are, or what you want to have sex with. We have nothing against your sexual orientation. We just don’t give a fuck.”

YSU officials immediately removed the posters from around the campus, Ron Cole, the university’s public information officer, told The Huffington Post. He said the school has no sanctioned “straight pride week” and the messages were “completely bogus.”

“With the help of a bunch of students, we quickly went out to take them all down,” Cole said. “Reaction has ranged from concern to outrage. While we recognize the right to free speech, this is counter to our mission of being a diverse and accepting campus.”

News of the posters comes just a few days after a group of students organized an “Anti-Gay Day” at McGuffey High School in Claysville, Pennsylvania. The protesters chose to wear flannel shirts and write “anti-gay” on their hands to protest the Day of Silence, an event hoping to encourage discussion about anti-LGBT bullying in schools.

Some of the school’s students who openly identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender had Bible verses written on their lockers, and physical altercations broke out in hallways.

Tim Bortner, president of Youngstown’s LGBT group, YSUnity, told HuffPost despite the quick removal of the posters on his campus, they’ve touched a nerve. He’s seen polarizing reactions across social media including on Yik Yak, an anonymous messaging app similar to Twitter.

“We’re getting a lot of negative comments toward our community,” he said. “There has been a lot of harassment and things [on Yik Yak]. Our members are seeing that and our communities are seeing it and it’s making them feel unsafe.”

Lisa Ronquillo, vice president of YSUnity, said that, along with safety concerns, the community is angry, particularly after the group participated in the Day of Silence. Some of the posters were pinned on top of YSUnity fliers advertising a rally for marriage equality on May 9, and she said they’re now wondering if they’ll have to deal with heckling and violence at the event.

“This feels like it came out of nowhere… and I honestly feel blindsided by it,” Ronquillo said. “It’s not something that I expected from our student body. Everybody for the most part, they’re angry, they’re confused.”

The YSU student government association released a statement after the incident criticizing the “straight pride” posters:

When individuals belong to dominant societal cohorts (Caucasian, male, heterosexual, etc.) it is very easy to state “We have nothing against your sexual orientation” and to claim that efforts to raise awareness are “annoying.” For minorities who every day face discrimination and marginalization, such efforts are necessary — without zeal and persistence, sociology teaches that minority concerns very easily go by the wayside. Thus, dismissing the efforts of LGBTQIA students to push for equitable treatment as unnecessary is dangerous because it catalyzes discrimination, whether meant to do so or not.

“There’s no room for this on a university campus. It’s unprofessional, it’s childish and we need to get people to see we’re just like you, we’re not trying to force an agenda,” Ronquillo said. “We need to pull together as a community.”

Language has been added to clarify that the YSU student government association was criticizing the views expressed on the “straight pride” flyers and not LGBT activism.

Do you really want this trash-mouthed woman be America’s next president?

I first published a variation of this post 16 months ago in August 2013, when the thought of Hillary Clinton running for president was only a fear instead of a reality.

Now that she is officially a 2016 presidential candidate, I’m re-publishing this post because Americans must be informed and reminded what kind of a person she is.

It is said that a measure of our character is how well we treat status inferiors —  those whom we don’t have to treat well. By that measure, the character of the woman who has ambitions to be America’s next president is sorely lacking.

You may have received an email by U.S. Marine Corps Colonel (ret.) Ed Schriber, containing quotes by Hillary Clinton which Col. Schriber had found in books written about the Clintons. The quotes show Hillary’s penchant to use obscene blasphemous language, as well as the utter contempt and disdain she has for those who work for her and her husband — Arkansas State troopers, Secret Service agents, and members of the U.S. military.

Since I don’t have those books in my personal library, I went on Amazon.com to verify those quotes by using Amazon’s “Look Inside” feature. In every case where Amazon provides a “Look Inside” feature, I was able to confirm that the quotes are correct. (To see the screenshots I took of those quotes on amazon.com, go here.)

Below are the Hillary quotes from Col. Schriber’s email.

How to have an EXACT plush replica of your beloved pet

On Thanksgiving Day in 2009, Jennifer Graham‘s beloved Rufus, a Great Dane, passed away. That was when she finally decided to turn an idea she long had into reality by creating a stuffed plush replica of Rufus as a way to memorialize him.

Graham hasn’t stopped making custom stuffed animals since.

She founded Cuddle Clones, a company based out of Louisville, Kentucky where she lives. The mission of Cuddle Clones is: “To capture the emotional connection between people and their pets through our customized products.”

Cuddle Clones

Not only does Cuddle Clones sell incredible products for pet lovers and pets, Graham also works hard to give back to the pet community by donating to animal charities and pet-related causes any opportunity that she gets. In fact, a portion of the proceeds from every Cuddle Clones sale goes directly to pet-related charities and causes.

Wondering how much it will set you back to order one of these remarkable plush animal replicas? The price is less steep than you might think. Smaller pets, such as rabbits, guinea pigs, and chickens (!) start at $129.

Cuddle Clones5Cuddle Clones7

Larger animals, like dogs, cats, and even horses are replicated into plush for $199.

Cuddle Clones1Cuddle Clones2Cuddle Clones3Cuddle Clones4Cuddle Clones7

Earth Prom, the source of this information about Cuddle Clone, says there are other companies on the market that offer similar services, but their prices tend to be about 30% to 60% more than Cuddle Clones.

Here are the easy-to-follow instructions to order online a plush clone of your beloved pet:

  1. Go to Cuddle Clones’ website: https://www.cuddleclones.com/index.html
  2. Select your type of pet.
  3. Upload at least one photo of your pet. Cuddle Clones suggests uploading more photos for the best results.
  4. Decide how your stuffed pet’s ears and tail are to be positioned. You can also provide any other distinguishing features of your pet.
  5. Add your item(s) to the cart and check out.

Due to the overwhelming popularity of Cuddle Clones’ custom stuffed animals, delivery for new orders is estimated around November 2015, just in time for Christmas!

Cuddle Clones also makes other customized products, such as ornaments, figurines, granite memorials, pet collars, personalized pet t-shirts and hoodies with your companion animal’s name.

Some owners purchase a duplicate plush animal in order to memorialize their pet. Others order a plush toy to resemble their living, healthy pets. And judging by this photo, pets like having a stuffed twin around.

New TV show has couples commit adultery “to save” their marriage

The 6th Commandment: “You shall not commit adultery”

The Sodom and Gomorrah of America’s “entertainment” industry sinks to a new low.

FYI Television, of which I’d never even heard until now, has greenlighted a new TV show on spouse-swapping, otherwise known as adultery, called The Seven Year Switch.

FYI (stylized as fyi,) is a digital cable and satellite television network that is owned by A&E Networks, a joint venture between the Disney–ABC Television Group subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company and the Hearst Corporation.

Lisa de Moraes reports for Deadline, April 24, 2015, that FYI’s The Seven Year Switch, named after the 1950s Marilyn Monroe movie The Seven Year Itch, is an eight-episode series in which four married couples “at a crossroads in their relationship” “bravely” put their marriage on the line by shacking up with a “new partner” for two weeks.

They will eat, live and “sleep” commit adultery with total strangers, the network said. Relationship experts will help guide the adulterous couples through the process. At the end of their “experimental marriages” adultery, the married couples will reunite and decide whether to divorce or renew their vows.

Gena McCarthy, SVP Programming and Development at FYI, described it as an experiment to determine whether absence really does make the heart grow fonder. Blah, blah, blah.

The Seven Year Switch is produced by Kinetic Content for FYI. Chris Coelen, Karrie Wolfe and Cat Rodriguez are executive producers for Kinetic Content.  Gena McCarthy and Liz Fine serve as executive producers for FYI.

After flag desecration incident, Valdosta State University students rally to support American flag

Earlier this morning, I published a post on students from the University of Florida at Gainsville and Emory University desecrating the American flag by urinating on the symbol of our country, and dissing military veterans by spitting and throwing beer cans at them.

Commenter threepercent1775 reminded us that not all members of the iY Generation (those born after 1990) are disrespectful, unpatriotic and politically ignorant.

I found a video of college students rallying in support of the flag at Valdosta State University students in Georgia. The video was posted on April 20, 2015, by Amanda Ann on her Facebook page with the comment:

“So this is what I stumbled upon coming out of my class on campus today.”

Amanda is studying early childhood education at Valdosta State University, the same campus where an Air Force veteran, Michelle Manhart, was detained by campus police for interfering with a group of Black student protesters who defiled the American flag by walking on it.

demonstrator trample on U.S. flag in Valdosta State University

Facebook does not enable me to save Amanda’s video to my hard-drive so that I can post the video on Fellowship of the Minds. Nor is the video on YouTube. You can see the video for yourself by going to Amanda’s Facebook page or on Clash Daily.

Here’s a screenshot I took from the video:

Valdosta State U students support American flag

There is such an uproar over the April 17 flag-trampling incident that Valdosta State University is shut down today in preparation for a huge demonstration.

Valdosta Police Chief Brian Childress told the Valdosta Daily Times that thousands of people who “just want to come down here and support the American flag” were expected to descend on Valdosta State University at 1:30 p.m. ET.
