The American Family Association (AFA) has been a long-time promoter of "traditional moral values" in the media, particularly television. AFA built its reputation on organizing boycotts against sponsors of TV shows with "anti-Christian" messages and ideas, or against companies it claims support the so-called "homosexual agenda" or marriage equality.

On Friday, Bryan Fischer voiced his disgust that Burger King had sold an LGBT pride themed Whopper at a San Francisco location a few weeks back and announced that the American Family Association was going to be issuing an action alert in response, warning that "if this kind of nonsense" isn't stopped, it'll spread across the nation. "When people sit down to eat a hamburger," Fischer said, "the last thing they want to be thinking about is two guys having sex": Today, the AFA issued that action alert, asking activists to email Burger King and warn that...

As Miranda noted the other day, anti-gay activists were not happy with the news that Burger King is planning to sell an LGBT pride themed burger at one San Francisco location. On today's radio program, Bryan Fischer said that the American Family Association is thinking about issuing an "action alert" about it out of concern that "if this isn't bottled up in San Francisco, this kind of nonsense, then it's going to be spreading across the entire fruited plain and you're going to be going to your Burger King in Des Moines, Iowa and you're going to have a...

Mashable’s Gina Piccalo writes today about the split among evangelical conservatives on the issue of immigration reform. While some evangelical activists have cited biblical values to support comprehensive immigration reform, others — such as Phyllis Schlafly, David Barton and Bryan Fischer — are busily trawling through the Bible for passages to justify their opposition. Piccalo interviews Americans for Legal Immigration’s William Gheen, who it turns out also takes a Christian nationalist view of his opposition to immigration reform. Gheen conveniently... MORE >

In response to the influx of Central American children fleeing to the southern border of the U.S., the American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer is repeating his belief that all national borders were determined by God and therefore anybody who crosses them without permission is directly offending the Creator. In a column for BarbWire today, Fischer writes, "What we learn from the Bible is that borders are God’s idea, and that such borders are to be respected. They are not to be crossed without permission.” As a result, he writes, “[o]ur southern border is... MORE >

On yesterday’s edition of “Sandy Rios in the Morning,” anti-LGBT activist and lecturer Dale O’Leary discussed her book, “The Gender Agenda,” which is about the purportedly harmful implications of transgender rights. O’Leary told Rios that transgender identity in trans women is the result of a lack of “masculine” authority in childhood and an unhealthy attachment to mothers, which in turn makes “these people covet something [femininity] that they don’t have and can never get.” The pursuit of a gender transition, Rios...

Ed Vitagliano of the American Family Association writes in this month’s edition of the AFA Journal that while he knows many people have “prayed endlessly for God to remove their same-sex attractions — to no avail,” that is because they simply haven’t called upon the power of God “to gain mastery over [their] impulses.” Vitagliano cites “the reality of ‘ex-gay’ people” as proof that “there are clearly many who have left the lifestyle.” He notes that while ex-gays have “reoriented their affections to the...

Laurie Higgins of the American Family Association’s Illinois affiliate is distraught that Boy Scouts wearing rainbow bandanas and a local Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) club participated in Independence Day parades in two Illinois towns this year. In a column in BarbWire today, Higgins calls on parents to boycott any event that includes supporters of gay rights. “What a barbarous affront to families and an insult to our veterans,” the Illinois Family Institute cultural analyst writes. “No Christian should bring their children to any event that...
