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, with seven Democrats and four Republicans, 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.

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. According to a public domain document found on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention created by at least two government agencies, AFA is standing on facts when we say "[h]omosexuality is a poor and dangerous choice."  "Top Health Issues for LGBT Populations Information and Resource Kit" shares facts showing homosexuality is an extremely risky choice physically and medically which affects all of society even without considering spiritual ramifications: 

“While the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that MSM [men having sex with men] account for just 4 percent of the U.S. male population ages 13 and older, the rate of new HIV diagnoses among MSM in the United States is more than 44 times that of other men (range: 522–989 per 100,000 MSM vs. 12 per 100,000 other men).” (explanation of MSM added)

With this in mind, will the Ways and Means Committee or other committees attempt to shut down the CDC for spouting "hate" via facts too?

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 the American Family Association. There are those who want to destroy anyone who speaks out against the dangers and consequences of unhealthy lifestyles. Together and with God's help, we are making a difference.
  1. Consider how the world is trying to redefine hate versus what it really is. Join Meeke Addison as she shares some eye-opening, prayer-worthy issues which are already affecting the culture around you and your family here:
