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.

Laurie Higgins of the Illinois Family Institute – the state affiliate of the American Family Association – is very unhappy about Dan Savage’s appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher last summer. Two weeks ago, Higgins urged her group’s members to watch a video of Savage’s “repugnant” appearance on the show. Today, in response to criticism from a reader who was offended by the Savage/Maher video, Higgins offered a long essay titled “ Random Thoughts on the Rapacious Rainbow Revolution.” Higgins explains in detail why she felt obligated to...

American Family Association radio host Sandy Rios said today that yesterday’s memorial service for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing, along with the “Boston Strong” slogan, are demonstrations of human pride that could cause God to stop protecting the city. Rios said that because the mourners gathered in Boston didn’t thank God for preventing a more damaging attack that “could’ve been a whole lot worse” with “thousands of casualties,” now God may allow another terrorist “onslaught” to take place: “Because we have...

On yesterday's radio broadcast, Bryan Fischer read from a recent Wall Street Journal article reporting that the top 1% of Americans account for nearly 30% of all federal tax revenue. To Fischer, that means that the poor and middle class families in this country "ought to be kissing the ground on which [the rich] walk" because it is the top 1% that is paying for EBT cards and food stamps and federal housing. The rich, Fischer asserted "ought to be given ticker tape parades once a week in all of our major cities to thank them for funding welfare for everybody": MORE >

Yesterday, the Supreme Court rejected an appeal from a New Mexico photography studio that had refused to photograph a lesbian couple's commitment ceremony on the grounds that doing so was a violation of the owner's religious beliefs. The New Mexico Supreme Court had ruled against the photographers and ordered them to pay attorney's fees. Now, according to Bryan Fischer, by rejecting their appeal, the Supreme Court has effectively declared that being a Christian in America is a crime. "It is now a criminal offense," Fischer said on his radio program yesterday, "it is... MORE >
Sandy Rios Fears Children Won't 'Survive' Common Core, Christians Will Have to Build 'Parallel Society'

Last week, American Family Association’s Sandy Rios spoke to William Estrada of the Home School Legal Defense Association about the supposed dangers of Common Core, which Rios fears will “promote homosexuality” to children. She told Estrada that conservative Christians will refuse to let their kids learn according to Common Core standards, but as a result will “find themselves in a situation where they cannot function, they cannot be accepted into colleges and universities, they can’t get scholarships, they can’t get a ticket to get into, you know, just...

On his radio broadcast today, Bryan Fischer took a call from a listener who expressed her sorrow over yesterday's shooting at Fort Hood and said that the key to preventing these kinds of things is for Christians to get back to abiding by the Ten Commandments, especially the practice of honoring the Sabbath on Saturday, as God intended. While Fischer did not agree with the caller about the proper day for recognizing the Sabbath, he did agree about the importance of honoring the Ten Commandments, saying that maybe the shooter responsible for the attack at Fort Hood would not have done so...

Bryan Fischer Warns 'Modern Family' Makes Gay Couples Seem Like They're 'Tiptoeing Through Tulips' In The 'Garden Of Eden'

Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association is convinced that Modern Family is a “poisonous” show that deceives people into thinking “that heterosexual marriage is bondage,” and expounded on his disgust with the popular sitcom during today’s edition of Focal Point. Unlike the straight couples on the sitcom who “bicker and fight all the time,” Fischer said, the gay couple and their daughter are portrayed like they’re living in “paradise.” “It’s the Garden of Eden, it’s paradise, they are tiptoeing through the...

After American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer called Modern Family a dangerous “poison” that demonizes heterosexuality, Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson laughed off the criticism from the rabidly anti-gay activist. Ferguson told Huffington Post Live that it is “hard for [him] to even comment” on Fischer’s “hilariously ridiculous” remarks, adding: “You have to allow it to roll of your back, as my favorite drag queen Jinkx Monsoon says, ‘water off a duck’s back,’ I try not to get too worked up about those...
