It’s not exactly a surprise when the American Family Association, home of the consistently unhinged Bryan Fischer, uses over-the-top rhetoric in its attacks on President Obama. Still, the latest fundraising letter from AFA President Tim Wildmon is memorably apocalyptic in tone:
In a very real way the year 2012 is as important to our nation as was the year 1776.
Just as then, this year Americans must choose between freedom and tyranny.
Wildmon goes on to call the administration’s recent regulations on insurance coverage of contraception “but the latest instance of the Obama Administration’s all-out war on Christians.”
Wildmon cites “the choice God put before the Israelites before He would allow them to enter into the Promised Land” and says
I believe God is asking America to make that same choice now:
Life and good … or death and evil.
Wildmon suggests Obama’s re-election would bring God’s wrath on America:
…everyone here at AFA is convinced that the elections this November will determine whether or not America will survive as a nation. After all, God has been long-suffering with us for decades now. How long will his patience last?
But, he says, if tens of millions of Christians register and vote for men and women who “respect our Christian heritage, will fight to protect religious freedom, and will work to build America’s crumbing moral foundation,” then
We can literally save America! As a nation we can stand before Almighty God and tell Him:
We love You, Lord! As a people, we will walk in Your ways and keep Your commandments!
The response card accompanying the letter seeks donation to “help elect godly leaders and to restore America to a nation that honors the one, true God.”
