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)?

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, provides an LGBT-friendly office environment for homosexual journalists, and pushes 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 $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’s 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 “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 former Disney C.E.O. Michael Eisner, the New York Times, and Ovitz’s onetime protégés at the Creative Artists Agency, Bryan Lourd, Kevin Huvane, and Richard Lovett.

Note: David Geffen is the openly homosexual co-founder, with director Steven Spielberg, of DreamWorks.

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 wrote about “the fear and confusion of the clergy, particularly in certain dioceses and congregations, when faced with” the topic of homosexuality. The clergy “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.


Fr. Oko maintains that Pope Benedict XVI was well aware of this subculture within the Church, 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.

The Homosexual Manifesto of 1987

We all know how the Left portray cultural and religious Conservatives who want to preserve marriage as what it has been for centuries — the union between a man and a woman. We are knuckle-dragging troglodytes: hysterical paranoiac bigots who imagine that nefarious homosexuals have a covert agenda and are out to recruit our children.

Well, guess what?

We are right!

A year ago, I did a post on gay activist Daniel Villarreal, writing in the gay advocacy website Queerty, admitting the truth:

“They accuse us of exploiting children and in response we say, ‘NOOO! We’re not gonna make kids learn about homosexuality, we swear! It’s not like we’re trying to recruit your children or anything.’ But let’s face it—that’s a lie. We want educators to teach future generations of children to accept queer sexuality. In fact, our very future depends on it. […] Recruiting children? You bet we are.

It gets even worse.

Did you know that in 1987, a homosexual activist named Michael Swift actually issued a Gay Manifesto? First published in the Gay Community News of Feb. 15-21, 1987, the Manifesto was reprinted in the U.S. Congressional Record.

Here’s Michael Swift’s Gay Manifesto (Warning: shocking and offensive language):

We shall sodomize your sons, emblems of your feeble masculinity, of your shallow dreams and vulgar lies. We shall seduce them in your schools, in your dormitories, in your gymnasiums, in your locker rooms, in your sports arenas, in your seminaries, in your youth groups, in your movie theater bathrooms, in your army bunkhouses, in your truck stops, in your all male clubs, in your houses of Congress, wherever men are with men together. Your sons shall become our minions and do our bidding. They will be recast in our image. They will come to crave and adore us.

Women, you cry for freedom. You say you are no longer satisfied with men; they make you unhappy. We, connoisseurs of the masculine face, the masculine physique, shall take your men from you then. We will amuse them; we will instruct them; we will embrace them when they weep. Women you say you wish to live with each other instead of with men. Then go and be with each other. We shall give your men pleasures they have never known because we are foremost men too, and only one man knows how to truly please another man; only one man can understand the depth and feeling, the mind and body of another man.

All laws banning homosexual activity will be revoked. Instead, legislation shall be passed which engenders love between men.

All homosexuals must stand together as brothers; we must be united artistically, philosophically, socially, politically and financially. We will triumph only when we present a common face to the vicious heterosexual enemy.

If you dare to cry faggot, fairy, queer, at us, we will stab you in your cowardly hearts and defile your dead, puny bodies.

We shall write poems of the love between men; we shall stage plays in which man openly caresses man; we shall make films about the love between heroic men which will replace the cheap, superficial, sentimental, insipid, juvenile, heterosexual infatuations presently dominating your cinema screens. We shall sculpt statues of beautiful young men, of bold athletes which will be placed in your parks, your squares, your plazas. The museums of the world will be filled only with paintings of graceful, naked lads.

Our writers and artists will make love between men fashionable and de rigueur, and we will succeed because we are adept at setting styles. We will eliminate heterosexual liaisons through usage of the devices of wit and ridicule, devices which we are skilled in employing.

We will unmask the powerful homosexuals who masquerade as heterosexuals. You will be shocked and frightened when you find that your presidents and their sons, your industrialists, your senators, your mayors, your generals, your athletes, your film stars, your television personalities, your civic leaders, your priests are not the safe, familiar, bourgeois, heterosexual figures you assumed them to be. We are everywhere; we have infiltrated your ranks. Be careful when you speak of homosexuals because we are always among you; we may be sitting across the desk from you; we may be sleeping in the same bed with you.

There will be no compromises. We are not middle-class weaklings. Highly intelligent, we are the natural aristocrats of the human race, and steely-minded aristocrats never settle for less. Those who oppose us will be exiled.

We shall raise vast private armies, as Mishima did, to defeat you. We shall conquer the world because warriors inspired by and banded together by homosexual love and honor are invincible as were the ancient Greek soldiers.

The family unit-spawning ground of lies, betrayals, mediocrity, hypocrisy and violence – will be abolished. The family unit, which only dampens imagination and curbs free will, must be eliminated. Perfect boys will be conceived and grown in the genetic laboratory. They will be bonded together in communal setting, under the control and instruction of homosexual savants.

All churches who condemn us will be closed. Our only gods are handsome young men. We adhere to a cult of beauty, moral and esthetic. All that is ugly and vulgar and banal will be annihilated. Since we are alienated from middle-class heterosexual conventions, we are free to live our lives according to the dictates of the pure imagination. For us too much is not enough.

The exquisite society to emerge will be governed by an elite comprised of gay poets. One of the major requirements for a position of power in the new society of homoeroticism will be indulgence in the Greek passion. Any man contaminated with heterosexual lust will be automatically barred from a position of influence. All males who insist on remaining stupidly heterosexual will be tried in homosexual courts of justice and will become invisible men.

We shall rewrite history, history filled and debased with your heterosexual lies and distortions.

We shall portray the homosexuality of the great leaders and thinkers who have shaped the world. We will demonstrate that homosexuality and intelligence and imagination are inextricably linked, and that homosexuality is a requirement for true nobility, true beauty in a man.

We shall be victorious because we are fueled with the ferocious bitterness of the oppressed, who have been forced to play seemingly bit parts in your dumb, heterosexual shows throughout the ages. We too are capable of firing guns and manning the barricades of the ultimate revolution.

Tremble, hetero swine, when we appear before you without our masks.

The Left insist that the Gay Manifesto was tongue-in-cheek (no pun intended) because Swift had prefaced the Manifesto with this disclaimer:

“This essay is an outré, madness, a tragic, cruel fantasy, an eruption of inner rage, on how the oppressed desperately dream of being the oppressor.”

But as Bradlee Dean points out in his essay on the Manifesto for WND: “You decide if this is merely a satire, or if this is actually being played out in reality.”

As I was reading the Gay Manifesto, I can see how in a mere 25 years after Swift issued the manifesto, almost every one of its declarations has been achieved:

  • The Gay Manifesto vowed “We shall sodomize your sons in gymnasiums, locker rooms, seminaries, youth groups, army bunkhouses”: See Jerry Sandusky, Catholic priests’ sex abuse scandal, Boy Scouts, US military abolishes “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell”.
  • “All laws banning homosexual activity will  be revoked”: See end of US military’s “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell”; homosexual “same sex” marriage in increasing numbers of states; Obama supports same sex marriage.
  • As for rewriting history, how about the ultimate rewriting of history: Jesus was gay! An example is Bob Goss, the author of Jesus Acted Up, A Gay and Lesbian Manifesto and Queering Christ, Beyond Jesus Acted Up.
