Lesbian Mom and LGBT Advocate Melanie Nathan Responds
By Melanie Nathan, May 02, 2013.
Imagine my disgust when I saw the video below. It felt abusive and its horrendous attempt at parody sickened me, as a lesbian mom. Janet Porter and her clan are touting that gay relationships are 3 times more dangerous than smoking and she is exploiting 3 children actors to get that message across. Child abuse Janet?
I imagined one of my innocent daughters watching this and the hurt and harm it would cause them. I realized, that Janet Porter would go to any lengths, to kill our right to live safely, peacefully, without hate, and in equality. “Heather has Two Moms” is a book that our family revered. It was the first of its kind at a time when being a lesbian mom did not receive much publicity or support. Finally a book my little one could relate to, a child’s book that my family could relate to.
Janet Porter is conducting a campaign, which we previously reported here on OBLOGDEE, where she and her group Faith2Action are scrambling the bottom of the barrel of hate, to try and sway America from tolerating, least of all accepting, gay and lesbian relationships. But now with this latest slight on her fellow Americans, Porter has been labeled a hater (in effect) by – no, not the SPLC in this instance- as she is merely on their Hate watch list, but You Tube- and at her own hand has made this admission through sending out a public message, noting the reason why You Tube banned her video “HATE SPEECH!”
Yes we have learned that lies, junk science and perpetuation of myth carries with it the life sentence of Hate Group. I think Porter’s Faith2Action just found its way to SPLC’s formal certification. I hope we hear from the Southern Poverty Law Center soon.
Here is what Janet Porter reveals on her own website:
“HEATHER HAS TWO CIGARETTES CENSORED BY YOUTUBE!”
Heather Has Two Cigarettesfrom Janet Porter 19 hours ago / via iMovie not yet rated
If we wouldn’t indoctrinate children to smoke, WHY would we do it for something even MORE DANGEROUS?
Hours after posting this four and a half minute video, YouTube posted the message: “Your video has been removed as a violation of YouTube’s policy prohibiting hate speech.”
Faith2Action President Janet Porter issued the following statement to the Press: “YouTube’s censorship has made the point of the film we’re now producing–the homosexual movement seeks to silence all those who disagree,” stated Porter.
“Here’s what Christians must know: if they can silence the truth, they will silence the Gospel.”
***NOTE: No Children smoked a cigarette in this video or were encouraged to do so.
Gary Glenn, Director of the American Family Association of Michigan, explained in the video: “Oxford University’s International Journal of Epidemiology says for college age men who engage in homosexual behavior, they risk losing 8-20 years of their life. That’s up to three times more years of life put at risk by engaging in homosexual behavior as smoking tobacco.”
“While censoring scientific evidence as ‘hate speech,’ YouTube has no problem hosting hundreds of videos that berate, insult, and vilify Christians,” stated Porter. “YouTube postings which do not violate their ‘hate speech’ regulations include calling Christians every profane and insulting word imaginable–and videos entitled, ‘I hate Christians. YouTube has NO PROBLEM with that,’” she added.
Porter warned of this threat in her book, The Criminalization of Christianity, published in 2005. She also initiated the pro-life Heartbeat Bill, now the nation’s most protective laws in Arkansas and North Dakota. The censored video can currently be seen at: https://vimeo.com/65265618. Please post it far and wide while we still can.
After watching the disgusting Video I wondered about the children subjected to the acting role. I consider this child abuse to put children in this Video and whichever parent provided such permission, ought to be ashamed.
Oh and did I say the video also points its nasty little finger at American President Barack Obama. M’thinks they do not like his smoking bad ass behavior for respecting homosexual equality! Or something like that…Anyway, that all said, Porter has grovelled to the bottom of the pit of desperation on this one and of course we can expect that all she has succeeded in doing is preaching to her ever shrinking choir, while alienating the best of the singers to the American way of thinking – Equality for All.
Please get your viewing in quickly as Anonymous might just get wind of this….
The Video is still on VIMEO – not sure how long it will last there. It is also on their website at http://f2a.org/

Funny how their statement tries to justify this horrible propaganda with the use of statistics about gay men, and yet it is lesbians with children they are attacking! You would have thought that as conservative Christians they would be fully accepting of the differences between men and women (as they use them to keep women ‘in their place’ in their rhetoric) – lesbians are NOT gay men!
Of course I do not want this to be seen as an attack on gay men – it is purely an attack on these people who move the goalposts whenever it suits them to promote their homophobic agenda.
They mention lesbians and their supposedly reduced life expectancy, but I noticed that they kept that VERY vague. Also conveniently ignoring that it is NOT the ‘gay lifestyle’ that causes the spread of HIV – what about all those African heterosexual eh?
BTW the video was deleted from Vimeo just after I watched it. It only had one comment there, ad that was supportive of LGBTQ people.
wow well I took photo screen shots of it for posterity under :”hate file”
How can anyone understand the minds of some people?? Teach children …. what? To be prejudiced, to participate in negative behavior – like smoking, to create future bullies ….. take their innocence away from them ….. Unacceptable!!!
Reblogged this on It Is What It Is and commented:
Unacceptable!!!! Kudos to YouTube for taking it down!!!
The poor youngsters pictured in this video look almost as intellectually emaciated as Ms. Porter. M’thinks the gene pool in this video is much to shallow for any positive activity!
to…. “too.” Sorry… typo.
That video was accurate and to the point. Women and men were never designed for sexual relationships with the same gender. This video was made because people love you and want you to realize the truth. Homosexuality is harmful.
hahahahahahahahahhaha …… did I say hahahahahahahahahahha …… seriosuly did I say hahahahahahahahahahahahaha! You said “Women and men were never designed for sexual relationships with the same gender.” Love the sinner hate the sin? What a load of horse crap San. This is a hate video and it seems a lot of people think so. Maybe if you had someone saying your sexuality was not normal you too would think it hateful. Firstly let me tell you I am a lesbian and my sex life is satisfying, gratifying and an expression of the deep love I feel for the person I am with. It works! All the body parts . In fact I hear some of my straight friends complaining about their sex lives. Some don’t have orgasms, the male partner is awkward, does not know how to treat her, she feels used, he comes and runs! Did I say hahahahahhhhahahaha… hahahhaha. Dont get me wrong I have straight friends who have great sex lives too. Very few lesbian friends who complain about their partners in bed though! That said as far as I have heard my gay male friends have a great time too. So to say the body was not made for something is ….a joke … did I say hahahahahahaha. Oh yes and then I know some straight couples who enjoy anal sex too ….do they get a hateful cigarette video? hahahahahahahaha.
“Homosexuality is harmful.” To who – How and why?
Check out all the studies that say good sex is good health….. gay or straight. Anything based on junk science and used to hurt gay families is pure hate.
