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.
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.
