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.

Bryan Fischer Is Inadvertently Making Sense: 'There Are Consequences For Making A Foolish Declaration'
SUBMITTED BY: Kyle Mantyla, Friday 04/25/2014, 4:05pm
As we have noted several times before, Bryan Fischer is a lot of things, but self-aware is not one of them and he continues to demonstrate this fact regularly on his radio program, as he did once again today. Fischer spent part of a segment discussing the fact that Dan Haseltine, lead singer of the Christian rock band Jars of Clay, had announced his support for gay marriage. In response to this announcement, Fischer said, some Christian radio stations have begun boycotting the band and refusing to play their songs while some fans have deleted their albums from the music libraries. Haseltine,... MORE >

Bryan Fischer is still miffed by Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy's decision to withdraw from the culture war over marriage, declaring on his radio program yesterday that gay activists are like leeches for whom no amount of blood is ever enough. Pointing to opposition to efforts by Chick-fil-A to open restaurants in New York City, Fischer cited Proverbs 30:15 to proclaim that "gay activists are like leeches." "The point here," Fischer said, "is that with the homosexual lobby, you cannot ever give them enough. Don't even try. There's no point in making concessions... MORE >

Apparently, American Family Association head Tim Wildmon and spokesman Bryan Fischer don’t understand how bathrooms work. The two revealed their stunning ignorance in interviews yesterday with OneNewsNow, the news arm of the AFA, about a new bathroom regulation in Washington D.C. As HRC explains, “the District of Columbia requires single-occupant restroom facilities in any public space (e.g., restaurants) to be gender neutral -- restrooms designed for use by one individual at a time may not have a specific gender designation with ‘male’ or ‘female’ signage...

Sandy Rios Explains God Will Allow More Terrorist Attacks Against America Because He's A 'Gentleman'

Last week on her radio show, Sandy Rios of the American Family Association addressed criticism she received over her claim that the Boston Marathon bombing memorial opened up the country to more terrorist attacks. She told one listener, Michael, that all Americans — not just Bostonians — are responsible for the looming attacks that she said will occur because the country has not paid enough attention God and is ignoring his moral laws. Channeling her AFA colleague Bryan Fischer, who made similar remarks about the Sandy Hook shooting, Rios said that God won’t protect... MORE >

Bryan Fischer has made no secret of the fact that he wants to see Russian-style anti-gay "propaganda" laws passed in the United States, going so far as to praise Vladimir Putin as "the lion of Christianity" for leading his nation's crackdown on gays. On yesterday's radio broadcast, Fischer again voiced his support for implementing such laws in America, declaring that it is "inexcusable" that these sorts of laws are not being put into place here. "That's a policy we ought to have in the United States," he said of the Russian laws. "It... MORE >

In a fundraising email today, American Family Association president Tim Wildmon warns that the list of careers that Christians can hold in America “is quickly shrinking as homosexuals pro-actively seek opportunities to wreck the personal business and career of any Christian who declines to support the gay lifestyle.” The email lists “7 common careers Christians may no longer hold in America,” which it says includes photography, broadcasting and teaching. Wildmon cites a few cases in which business owners have been sued for refusing to provide services to gay people and... MORE >

On yesterday's radio broadcast, Bryan Fischer took a call from a listener who was seeking advice on how he should respond to fellow Christians who had sided with his wife when the two got divorced a few years ago. Saying that his wife had engaged in adultery and then sought a divorce against his wishes, the caller was mystified by the fact that his "brothers and sisters in Christ" had shown up in court to testify on behalf of his wife during a custody hearing. Fischer was likewise mystified by this, primarily because Jesus said that no Christian should ever provide "any... MORE >

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...
