American Family Association: As He Sets Out to Make America Great Again, Donald Trump Will Protect Life, Religious Freedom and Choose Justices Who Will Uphold Judeo-Christian Values
TUPELO, Miss.—After voters across the country elected Donald Trump in one of the most historic and crucial elections in the nation’s history, the American Family Association (AFA, www.afa.net) released the following statement.
“In the last 24 hours, America has taken a step in the right direction,” said AFA President Tim Wildmon. “This election was no easy choice. Christians across America, including myself, grappled with the two flawed candidates who ran for the presidency. President-Elect Donald Trump has promised to choose Supreme Court Justices who will overturn Roe v. Wade, strengthen our national borders and protect religious liberty,” Wildmon continued. “The American people have spoken, and they have elected Donald Trump.
“During this election, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton promised to expand federally funded baby murder in the womb, continue failed Obama-era immigration policies and declared war on religious liberty. Not only would Mrs. Clinton have brought these dangerous positions into the Oval office, she would have also dragged along her lifelong legacy of corruption and lies into the highest office in the land.
“As president of one of the largest pro-family organizations in the country, no matter who is in the White House,” Wildmon continued, “I promise to fight relentlessly for our Judeo-Christian values, just as AFA has done for the last four decades. In order to promulgate godly values in Washington, D.C., AFA needs Christians to come alongside us and stay in the fight. Even though Mr. Trump has won the election and made encouraging promises, now is no time to relax. We must rally the troops and prepare to advance Christian principles throughout America for the months and years to come. We can never give up.”

American Family Association (AFA,) a non-profit 501(c3) organization, was founded in 1977 by Donald E. Wildmon. Since then, 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 nearly a million online supporters and approximately 160,000 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 banner.
Other divisions of AFA include American Family Radio, the AFA Foundation and OneNewsNow.com, an online news provider syndicated around the world. AFA maintains activist websites such as OneMillionMoms.com, which rallies Christian activists to contact companies asking them to drop their advertising from objectionable TV shows, and OneMillionDads.com, which equips men to fulfill their God-given role of leadership. AFA websites average over 6 million unique visitors and 30 million hits per year. AFA uses all these means to communicate an outspoken, resolute, Christian voice throughout America.
