House Democrats come after AFA like never before

On Thursday, September 19, the House Ways and Means Committee made it clear that it is specifically coming after your American Family Association.

Led by some of the country’s most liberal and political activists, members of the Oversight Subcommittee held a hearing on “How the Tax Code Subsidizes Hate” for the purpose of stripping AFA of its legal 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status.

Taking notes from the discredited and scandalous Southern Poverty Law Center as well as LGBTQ militants, Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) accused conservative and faith-based groups, such as AFA, of “promoting hate based on race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, or ethnicity,” and he supports stripping them of their legally entitled tax-exempt status.

We would appreciate your donation.

Tweeting its own brand of hateful rhetoric, the Ways and Means Committee called AFA’s medical warning about engaging in homosexual conduct “vile.” Perhaps these politicians would rather the truth be kept silent as thousands die a horrible and needless death each year from AIDS.


It is no secret that a fantasy of the liberal members of the Ways and Means Committee is to shut down AFA and every organization that disagrees with its vast left-wing agenda. AFA will fight back against these attacks, and we will continue promoting Christian activism as we have done for the past 40 years.

I’m asking you to do two things:

1. Pray for the ministry of American Family Association. There are those who want to destroy anyone who speaks out against the dangers and consequences of unhealthy lifestyles.

2. Stand with us by making a donation to help us reach a lost and dying world. AFA will continue to share the truth of the gospel with everyone, despite those who would try to silence us.

Together and with God’s help, we are making a difference.
