The American Family Association, an extreme Christian organization
- The American Family Association, a extreme Christian organization, emailed members today (Jan. 2, 2013) with a dire warning that, within 50 years.http://thinkprogress.org/politics/2013/01/02/1386001/afa-christians-2060/?goback=%2Egde_137845_member_200558410The American Family Association’s spokesman has called for kidnapping the children of same-sex couples through a modern-day “Underground Railroad” system.When one man heeded this advice and aided a woman in kidnapping the daughter of a lesbian woman, the group advised him to flout American laws and flee the country. A large part of that work involves "combating the homosexual agenda." Yet these so called “Christians” could care less about how hurt these homosexual people feel on getting put down all their lives.AFA also organizes against any individual or company that shows the slightest tolerance for LGBT people, including Office Depot, Urban Outfitters, Home Depot, JC Penney, and Google.This extremist group gets up in arms about indecent television programming and pornography..Tim Wildmon, March 6, 2012 said, “[Islam] is, in fact, a religion of war, violence, intolerance, and physical persecution of non-Muslims.” BULLSHIT. The numbers of dead, wounded and who fled their homes in Iraq and Afghanistan is over a million and the US left radioactive DU to damage the health of the Iraqis and Afghans for years to come.If President Obama, Congressional Democrats, and homosexual activists get their wish, your son or daughter may be forced to share military showers and barracks with active and open homosexuals who may very well view them with sexual interest."
– AFA press release, February 2010"[T]he homosexual lifestyle is characterized by anonymous sexual encounters and celebration of sexual obsession and perversion unparalleled in any other social group."
– Richard Howe, "Homosexuality in America," AFA publication, 1994.In 2009, the AFA hired Bryan Fischer, the former executive director of the AFA-affiliated Idaho Values Alliance, as its director of issue analysis for government and public policy and as a radio host. In early 2011, Fischer called for an end to Muslim recruits in the U.S. military and an end to Muslim immigration to the U.S. At around the same time, he claimed that Native Americans remained mired in poverty because they refused to accept Christianity. he lambasted welfare programs, singling out African Americans for criticism by stating, “Welfare has destroyed the African-American family by telling young black women that husbands and fathers are unnecessary and obsolete. In September 2012, however, Fischer said of African-American supporters of the Democratic Party: “They’re like drug-addled addicts and the Democrat Party has gotten them addicted to welfare benefits.The group remains influential among Republican politicians. The AFA’s former leader was heavily courted in the 2012 Republican presidential primary.
