AFA Available for Comment on DOMA, Prop 8 to Represent Voice of Millions of Conservative Christian Americans

Spokespersons from the American Family Association (AFA, www.afa.net) will be immediately available for comment upon the announcement of The Supreme Court of the United States'  decision to either uphold or overturn the voter-approved Proposition 8 in California.

Additionally, AFA will be available for comment when the Supreme Court hands down its decision to either keep or overturn the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). 

American Family Association, a non-profit 501(c3) organization was founded in 1977 by Donald E. Wildmon, who was pastoring First United Methodist Church in Southaven, Mississippi, at the time.  Since 1977, AFA has been on the frontlines of America’s culture war. The original name of the ministry was National Federation for Decency but was changed to American Family Association in 1988.

Today, AFA is one of the largest and most effective pro-family organizations in the country with over two million online supporters and approximately 180,000 paid subscribers to the AFA Journal, the ministry's monthly magazine. In addition, AFA owns and operates nearly 200 radio stations across the country under the American Family Radio (AFR) banner. 

Other divisions of AFA include American Family Radio, the AFA Foundation and OneNewsNow.com, an online news provider that is syndicated around the world. AFA maintains activist web sites such as OneMillionMoms.com and OneMillionDads.com that rally Christian activists to contact companies asking them to drop their advertising from objectionable TV shows. AFA web sites average over 40 million hits and five million visitors each month. 

AFA uses all these means to communicate an outspoken, resolute, Christian voice throughout America.
