World Congress of Families Welcomes Peter LaBarbera To the Family

On his website today, Peter LaBarbera announced that his Americans for Truth About Homosexuality has joined the World Congress of Families as a “partner” organization:

Americans For Truth About Homosexuality is proud to join the World Congress of Families as a “Partner” organization. World Congress is the undisputed leader of the international pro-family movement. It is a distinct honor to be part of their growing network, which actively assists and unites pro-family and pro-life advocates the world over who are struggling against social leftism. WCF’s stated purpose is “to affirm that the natural human family is established by the Creator and essential to good society.” To accomplish its mission, WCF holds biennial international pro-family Congresses as well as more frequent regional conferences in major cities worldwide. To contact WCF, go HERE; to donate to The Howard Center/WCF, go HERE.

World Congress was launched by The Howard Center, based in Rockford, Illinois, a leading conservative, pro-family research institute under the guidance of the esteemed Dr. Allan Carlson. (If you are not reading The Howard Center’s publication, “The Family in America,” you are missing out.) AFTAH greatly appreciates and benefits from the tremendous work that Dr. Carlson, The Howard Center’s able staff, and the World Congress of Families do, and we look forward to working with them for years and decades to come.

Along with LaBarbera’s AFT, it was announced that the Western Center for Journalism, founded by WorldNetDaily’s Joseph Farah would also be joining the more than two dozen other right-wing groups already established as WCF partners: 

American Family Association
Alliance Defense Fund
Alliance for the Family
Americans United for Life
Associazione per la Difesa Dei Valori Cristiani – Luci sull’Est, Italy
Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute
Concerned Women for America
Ethics and Public Policy Center
Euthanasia Prevention Coalition
Family First Foundation
Family Watch International
Family Research Council
Father Peter Skarga Institute (Poland)
Fellowship of St. James

Grasstops USA
His Servants
Home School Legal Defense Association
Human Life International
Media Research Center
Parents Forum Switzerland
Population Research Institute

Red Familia (Mexico)

You may recall a few years ago when the WCF held its meeting in Poland over the objections of the European Parliamentary Working Group on Separation of Religion and Politics on the grounds that the “extremist and intolerant views … toward foreigners, people from other religions [and] homosexuals” of WCF members clashed with the values set out by the United Nations and the European Union.

So adding LaBarbera to the mix ought to really help with that.
