.— American Family Association president, Tim Wildmon, issued this statement
today on the firing of Craig James by Fox Sports:
“The firing of Craig James illustrates the sad reality that the real
bigotry and intolerance in our culture is coming, not from Christians, but from
the aggressive homosexual lobby. The values that got Mr. James fired - that
sexual expression is a choice, that marriage is a sacred institution, and that
we are all accountable to God - are values that the Founders shared, the values
on which this nation was built. For that to be a fireable offense today is an
appalling indication of how far we, as a nation, have drifted from our
moorings. The truth is that once again the very people who claim they are
paragons of tolerance have proven to be the most intolerant bullies and bigots
on the block.”
Craig James, a former quarterback, ran for U.S. Senate last year and
during his campaign made conservative statements reflecting his values.
After one day at Fox Sports he was fired for his previous statements.

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 (AFA) 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
an online news provider that is syndicated around the world. AFA maintains
activist web sites such as OneMillionMoms.com and OneMillionDads.com that

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.
