American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP) Biography

Position:
Con to the question "Is Sexual Orientation Determined at Birth?"
Reasoning:

“In its effort to give homosexuality all the appearances of normality, the homosexual movement has turned to science in an attempt to prove three major premises:

1. homosexuality is genetic or innate;

2. homosexuality is irreversible;

3. since animals engage in same-sex sexual behavior, it is natural.

Liberal media have been only too willing to anticipate the verdict of the scientific community and spread the false impression that science validates homosexuality. The evidence could not be more contrary.”

Description:

“The American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP) was born of a group of Catholic Americans concerned about the multiple crises shaking every aspect of American life. Founded in 1973, the American TFP was formed to resist, in the realm of ideas, the liberal, socialist and communist trends of the times and proudly affirm the positive values of tradition, family and property.”

Mission:

“Central to the TFP mission is the idea that the various crises threatening American society and the Church cannot be seen as separate and disjointed. Rather they originate from a single cause.”
