American Family Association Alerts Citizens About Agenda-Driven Cultural Matters That Harm Children, Destroy Families
The American Family Association (AFA, www.afa.net) is warning families about several agenda-driven cultural matters impacting their communities and families through Action Alerts that reach about 1 million of their friends and supporters.
- “Drag Queen Story Hours” are happening at more and more local public and school libraries nationwide. The disturbing events involve men dressed up as garishly adorned women who read LGBTQ-themed books to young children under the guise of performing a public service, says AFA President Tim Wildmon. In an Action Alert, Wildmon reported that the obvious goal is to convince an entire generation of children that cross-dressing and a transgender lifestyle are perfectly normal. Read more here.
- AFA is continuing to warn families about dangers of Netflix’s teen-targeted series “13 Reasons Why.” Specifically, AFA has shared the tragic story of 14-year-old Anna Bright, who committed suicide after binge-watching Season 1 of the program. And Anna is not the only one. Two California families also blame their loved ones’ deaths on the series. Both teens were struggling with depression, watched the show, apparently were triggered by it and committed suicide. Their families are also calling for Netflix to abandon the series. “13 Reasons Why” has become a lightning rod for critics who say it glorifies suicide and might even make it an attractive option for teenagers who are enduring difficult times in their lives. More than 144,000 have signed a petition to Netflix to pull the series. Read more here.
- More than 37,000 Americans took an AFA survey to say they are still fully engaged with the #BoycottTarget pledge, which AFA began nearly three years ago. American Christians still feel very strongly about not shopping at Target and believe AFA should keep the pressure on the retailer regarding its dangerous and misguided restroom and fitting room policy. Ninety-nine percent of respondents told AFA they believe the Target policy puts women and children at risk for sexual assault, while 98 percent are still boycotting Target, and 99 percent said AFA should continue its #BoycottTarget efforts. To date, more than 1.5 million have signed the pledge. Read more here.
- Lastly, and most recently, AFA is urging Wal-Mart to remain neutral on controversial issues. In an Action Alert, AFA is asking the retail giant to remove an online video that normalizes homosexual relationships. The ad in question is part of a campaign called “Love is in the aisle: A dating show at Walmart.” Episode 2 features Pat and Andy, two homosexual men on a blind date as they meet at the store and shop together. More than 160,000 have signed a petition, urging Wal-Mart to remove the pro-homosexual video. Read more here.
