Fitting, as our reaction to them is often 'AHHHHH!'

by Jeremy Hooper

So you may know that we've been pretty obsessed with Peter LaBarbera's newly re-launched anti-gay group, Americans For Truth. Mr LaBabs was always one of our favorites when he helmed the anti-gay Illinois Family Institute, so when it was abruptly announced that he would be leaving IFI to re-launch the so-called "Americans For Truth," we looked on with a keen interest. Yes, we and AFT have been like two opposite viewpoint-holding peas in a highly polarized, gay-focused pod.

Or so we thought. Ya see, today as we performed our morning routine of stopping by AFT's home on the Interweb, slapping our head with our hands, and screaming in exasperated frustration at just how extremely they are attempting to demonize our lives and loves, we noticed something even more askew than usual with AFT's site. That's because in every instance on the site in which the group had previously referred to themselves as "AFT," the group is now calling itself:

Aftah

"AFTAH?" What the HellAH? As you can see from this screen cap taken on 9/28...

9:28

...the group's acronymical representation wasn't always "AFTAH." But now...

12:27

...it's "AFTAH" all the way. You think you know someone and then they go and just add some letters without dropping you so much as an email?! RudeAH!

But non-notification aside, we turn our attention to the one question now on our minds: What the deuce could the "AH" stand for? And since they've yet to clue us in to this abrupt change, we're gonna have to make our own educated guesses, based on what we know of the group's work. Our guesses:

Americans For Truth Argue Hastily
Americans For Truth Abhor Honesty
Americans For Truth About Horse shit
Americans For Truth Are Haters
Americans For Truth,
Ahem, Half-Truths
Americans For Truth: Anti-Gay Hacks?
Americans For Truth: Always Half-Baked
Americans For Truth Act Horribly
Americans For Truth Abuse Holiness
Americans For Truth Actualize Homophobia
Americans For Truth Are Hallucinating?

Picture 6-38

So many possibilitiesAH!

We'll have to wait for an announcement from the group to see what the letters are truly meant to represent. Though no matter the new meaning of the newly-minted vowel-consonant combination, we promise you we'll keep challenging the anti-gay rhetoric of LaBarbera & Co. until AMERICANS FOR TRUTH ARE HIBERNATING.
