    As reported by Fox News and other outlets, many of the people on Target's ten-member executive team have changed over the last two years, some of them over the past few months. "Recently we've seen reports that Target's CEO, their chief financial officer, and chief operating officer have all had their salaries slashed by up to 40 percent," says Walker Wildmon of the American Family Association. U.S. News and World Report reported, in fact, that CEO Brian Cornell's already-generous salary was cut after a "bleak year" at the retail giant. AFA has been on a year-long effort to urge Target...

    The American Family Association has compiled a list of 10 cases to showcase why Target's bathroom policies that allow male customers who identify as female to go into women's bathrooms and dressing rooms is dangerous to women and children. "The overwhelming evidence continues to pile up against Target's policy to allow men into women's restrooms and dressing rooms in its stores," AFA President Tim Wildmon wrote on Thursday. Target has defended its decision by stating: "We welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity. ...

  • It's Time to Award Electoral College Votes by Congressional District

    The custom in the United States today is for Electoral College (EC) votes to be awarded state-by-state on a winner-take-all basis. A candidate who wins the popular vote in an individual state gets every one of its electoral votes. Although we are accustomed to thinking this is the only way it can be done, the method of awarding electoral votes is a matter for each state to decide. For example, two states (Nebraska and Maine) award electoral college votes by congressional district rather than by statewide popular vote. There is no reason for every other state in the nation not...
  • BUSINESS Retailer's 'brilliant marketing strategy' backfiring (Target)

    A financial expert argues that regardless what Target says, the four-month-long boycott of the retailer by a pro-family group is at least part of the reason the company's revenue has dropped more than a billion dollars in the last quarter. Target reported today it has cut its profit and comparable-store sales outlook amid stiffer competition and its own stumbles in areas like grocery sales. The discounter's second-quarter net income fell nearly 10 percent, though that was better than what most had expected. According to The Associated Press, sales at stores open at least a year fell 1.1 percent, reversing seven...

    On Tuesday, hundreds of evangelical leaders gathered in New York City to meet with Donald Trump. I was one of the four representatives from AFA who attended this event. Overall I was pleased with the questions that were asked and the answers that were given. My father, Tim Wildmon summed up the meeting in a recent article that I’d encourage you to read. The purpose of this piece is to address the ‘Never Trump’ crowd.

    Conservative group American Family Association (AFA) announced Tuesday, June 14 that it's launching another campaign to boycott Target after the retailer proved adamant in its inclusive bathroom policy. Walker Wildmon, assistant to the president of AFA, announced on the organization's official website a new initiative for #BoycottTarget pledge seeking 50,000 more signatories from June 13 to 17. The organization believes that despite garnering more than a million pledges for the first campaign, there are still millions more who were not able to sign. AFA spearheaded the campaign shortly after the giant retail company announced its inclusive bathroom policy in April....

    A spokesman for the American Family Association says he was clearly snubbed by Target officials today when he expressed his group's deep concerns about the retailer's bathroom policy. AFA's Abraham Hamilton III went to today's Target shareholders meeting in Southern California to raise concerns again about the company's policy allowing transgenders to use the bathroom or changing room of the gender in which they say they identify. AFA's concern has been that sexual predators may take advantage of the policy, thereby putting women and children at risk. "It's amazing. The response really was We don't care what you have to...

    More than 1,000,000 people have signed the boycott pledge against Target, following the secretive decision by executives to open all of their stores’ bathrooms and changing rooms to people of both sexes. “That’s a million families who are going to spread the word about Target, so they may not get those customers back,” or their money, said Tim Wildmon, president of the American Family Association, which has hosted the boycott.

    A pro-family group has launched a boycott of Target after the retail store made it clear on Tuesday that its bathrooms and changing facilities can be used by anyone according to their gender identity. The American Family Association said that more than 162,000 citizens signed its #BoycottTarget pledge within 24 hours. “Corporate America must stop bullying people who disagree with the radical left agenda to remake society into their progressive image,” AFA President Tim Wildmon said in a statement. “#BoycottTarget has resonated with Americans.” …

    Those pint-sized radical feminists also known as the Girl Scouts are in trouble again — this time for their transgender-inclusion policy — and they’ve wasted no time in shutting down the haters. Though the national organization has formally accepted transgender girls into its ranks since 2012, it seems one conservative organization has either just heard the news or has been stewing about it ever since. “A new Girl Scouts of America (GSA) policy states it will extend membership to boys who identify as girls,” notes the website of the American Family Association, a Christian-morals organization that’s been labeled an anti-LGBT hate...

    See Map Here: http://www.afa.net/bigotrymap In 2007, and with that same nauseating arrogance that has come to define him, then presidential candidate Barack Obama duplicitously quipped, “I am absolutely convinced that culture wars are just so ’90s. Their days are growing dark.” Dark, indeed. America’s soon-to-be cultural-Marxist-in-chief would then spend the greater part of a decade waging war against our nation’s Judeo-Christian culture and heritage at levels, and in ways, unseen in our storied history. Today, his anti-Christian crusade continues unabated. In fact, and with less than two years left to complete his baleful conspiracy, this neo-pagan extremist has begun to...

    Just returned from a very productive evangelization project in the Monadnock area. But I'm back. In the news, Patrick Vaughn, Legal Counsel for the American Family Association, correctly observes that, "The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) calls the American Family Association (AFA) a 'hate group' because AFA promotes traditional Biblical views on homosexuality and marriage. SPLC does not have a standard for who they label as a 'hate group.' They apply the label to whomever they want to dehumanize and attack." See here. The Southern Poverty Law Center has even included Mass Resistance in its list of hate groups because...

She said women who reported the attacks were treated harshly by classmates. “I kept saying, ‘Stop, stop, I’m not having sex with you,’” Jones-Hardy told the news station. “I must have said no at least 30 times.”

    Calling slain civil rights hero Harvey Milk a “predator” on its website this week, the fundamentalist Christian group American Family Association (AFA) urged members to refuse any mail postmarked with a recently-released commemorative stamp featuring the late San Francisco supervisor. “Harvey Milk was a very disreputable man and used his charm and power to prey on young boys with emotional problems and drug addiction,” reads the AFA’s press release. “He is the last person we should be featuring on a stamp.”

    The leader of a church-state separatist group says that there’s a “revolt” underway at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo., after officials there removed a Bible verse from a white board outside a cadet’s bedroom door following complaints that its presence was offensive. Cadets angry over the Air Force Academy’s removal of the verse have since begun posting scripture from the Bible and the Koran on their whiteboards in solidarity, said Mikey Weinstein, president of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. “The Air Force Academy has a revolt on their hands. What are they going to do?” Weinstein...

    When former Air Force Academy cadet Eric Thomas faced a disciplinary board in August 2012, a special agent with the Air Force Office of Special Investigations said he would come to explain how Thomas worked dozens of cases as a confidential informant and had been of great service to the Air Force. The agent never showed up, and Thomas was expelled from the academy eight months later. On Friday, an active-duty member of the Air Force Academy with direct knowledge of the case said the agent, Brandon Enos, did not show up because he was told not to by the...

    The U.S. Air Force reportedly had cadets snitch on one another in an effort to root out rule-breaking. (U.S. Air Force Photo by Mike Kaplan/Released) The United States Air Force reportedly has created a “secret system” of informants at its academy in Colorado Springs to snitch on fellow cadets who break the rules, in an attempt to curb drug abuse and combat sexual assault. While those who join the Air Force pledge never to lie, cheat or steal, or "tolerate among us anyone who does,” the service allegedly urged informants to deceive classmates, professors and commanders while gathering information to...

    Gay rights advocates are demanding Air Force Academy officials explain why they hired a controversial anti-gay author as part of their ethics program, saying his views are offensive and potentially destructive. It’s the latest controversy for academy officials who for years have fought to clean up their image as a haven for Christian fundamentalists. Advocates say it also raises questions about how seriously officials are working to end lingering discrimination against gay cadets. Mike Rosebush, who now works as a research analyst for the academy’s Center of Character and Leadership Development, was hired by the academy in 2009, before the...
