Unlike the other reviewers who gave this organization a negative rating, I greatly respect the AFA's mission. I have contributed to the AFA many times in the past, and often participate in their "Action Alerts."

So, what's my beef with them? They are terrible with customer relations, and sometimes inconsistent in their views. In the past, I wrote them a couple of letters (which asked for a response), but they never responded. Eventually, I told them point-blank in a letter that I was a contributor who wasn't receiving any responses from them, and that if they didn't respond to my final letter, I would stop contributing. Guess what—no response. So, I never contributed to them again, even though I believe in their mission. Don't ever try to e-mail them either, because you'll rarely get a response.

I was also stunned when Don Wildmon endorsed Newt Gingrich for President in 2012. Gingrich is a serial adulterer, and according to the Bible, his current marriage is not a real one but an adulterous one. His stance on pro-life issues has been questionable in certain ways as well. For Wildmon to endorse Gingrich was shocking and outrageous.

In a nutshell, the AFA does a lot of good things, but I would recommend never trying to contact them for anything and never contributing to them, because they seem to be terrible stewards of what God has given them. I forgive them, but I refuse to deal with them anymore, because it feels kind of like casting pearls before swine. There are many other responsible Christian organizations out there who are far more deserving of your contributions.

Betrays the word "charity" in every sense of the word. AFA is counter-productive to human welfare both to the groups that it victimizes and its own members. They would be entertaining if they weren't so damaging to people. They have truly earned their status as a hate group, as labeled by the FBI partner SPLC.

American Family Association promotes Biblical values that not all people agree with. That does not make them a "hate" organization. From a Christian point of view, AFA does a tremendous amount of good work. They host inspirational music, prayer, feeding the hungry, housing the homeless, curing the sick, and promoting the love of Jesus. The ones who say that AFA is intolerant are the most intolerant people and organizations out there. They are only tolerant if you agree with them, but because AFA doesn't, even though everything they do is in Christian love and not done in a cruel fashion, they are called "haters", "intolerant", "evil", when in actuality, it's just the opposite.

i disagree strongly with the negative reviews received by AFA. Have these folks taken the time to read the magazine ? If they are regular readers they would see the true heart beat of this organization which is to present Christ without compromise in a way that glorifies Him, which puts loving God and loving others a priority. Not a hate group in any regard! It has been a very helpful resource for me and I pass the magazines to my daughter when I finish them.

As a Christian, I will say that the AFA are NOT good ones. All they do is promote intolerance against LGBT people and liberals, it seems.

The truth about the AFA has nothing to do with hate, but with the love of Jesus, who is quoted in the Bible as saying, "Go your way and sin no more." Love and compassion require us to tell the truth about sin. The AFA is an organization of amazing resolve to hold fast to God's plan for a better way to live.

The AFA has been INSPIRING on everything from family issues, work ethics, faith, and american political issues. Indeed, many times I have been down and had a negative outlook and listening to them has brightened my outlook. They are FAR from being any hate group. Issues were I maybe had hate they helped me to see LOVE. They promote biblical truth, family growth, and love of country.

Clearly a hate group NOT promoting Jesus' teachings of acceptance and compassion but creating fear, division and exclusivity. The fact that they stopped over 200 schools from participating in a anti-bully campaign is beyond any type of Christian I know or respect. If they can influence schools with their religious rhetoric then their tax exempt status should not exist.

The AFA is a hate-group and has no business being a 501(c)3 non-profit group.
