Shining the light on HATE and HYPOCRISY – Pt. 1

This little light of mine

“This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine…”

And today’s spotlight is on: The American Family Association – A group dedicated to promote America’s “christian” family values! (Yeah right, read on….)

I was able to gain most of my background information from Wikipedia  as well as other websites and blogs.

The American Family Association is a US non-profit organization that promotes fundamentalist Christian values. It was founded in 1977 by Donald Wildmon as the National Federation for Decency and is headquartered in Tupelo, Mississippi.

The American Family Association is accredited by the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) and posted a 2011 budget of over US$16 million

The American Family Association owns 200 American Family Radio stations in 33 states, 7 affiliate stations in 7 states, and 1 affiliate TV station in New Mexico.

Bryan Fischer is the director of issue analysis for government and public policy as well as a radio host for the American Family Association in which he hosts a very popular daily radio shows which features many prominent Republican candidates and elected officials.

The American Family Association has been listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) as of November 2010 for the “propagation of known falsehoods” and the use of “demonizing propaganda” against LGBT people.

And here are a FEW of the reasons why the SPLC (and many others) has listed them as a hate group.

The American Family Association declares that no atheist should be permitted to serve in the U.S. military

The American Family Association declares that the First Amendment only applies to Christians.

The American Family Association calls for banning Muslims from the military.

The American Family Association calls for deporting all Muslims from the United States.

The American Family Association declares that Native Americans are “morally disqualified” from owning property in the United States.

The American Family Association calls for criminalizing homosexuality in the United States.

The American Family Association calls for criminalizing all sex outside of marriage in the United States.

Coming up: Tony Perkins and the Family Research Council (Hint – He won an award from The American Family Association!)
