Bearing False Witness: Tim Wildmon’s Lie About Barack Obama

I just received a letter in the mail from Tim Wildmon, President of the American Family Association. I get a little cheer in my heart when such letters come.

AFA Tea Party T-Shirt? Patriotically Made with Cheap Haitian Labor

The Original Christmas Cross: Now for Home Use!

Ever eager to make America a more Biblical land, the American Family Association has finally given up on its project of reshaping Florida to look like Judea. There just weren’t enough backhoes. The AFA’s backup plan: to sell “the Original Christmas Cross” at a low, low price of just $82. There’s more than one of […]
