Via American Family Association president Tim Wildmon:
What if I told you that you could clean your family’s laundry and help reach the next generation at the same time? That opportunity is here – through a company called Redeem Clean. The company was founded by Lynn Ingram and Jim Duncan specifically to help American Family Association. I first met Lynn and his wife on our Spiritual Heritage Tour of Washington, D.C., last September. Lynn pulled me aside during the tour and told me how he listened faithfully to our American Family Radio station in Abilene, Texas, and that he and his wife were long-time financial supporters of AFA.
He told me how much he believed in what we are doing and shared our passion to see Christianity impact America. Then Lynn told me he believed God had put an idea in his heart that could help AFA/AFR financially for years to come. Needless to say – I was all ears! They had started a company named Redeem Clean and created a laundry detergent; if AFA wanted to offer it to supporters, the majority of profits above and beyond the costs of making the detergent would go to further the mission of AFA.
We have decided to take advantage of their generous offer! More specifically, we agreed that the proceeds from this product will go directly to influence the next generation with the gospel of Jesus Christ through Engage – a division of AFA created to reach Millennials (roughly ages 20-35). Alarmingly, trends reveal that this age group is slowly wandering from the basic truths of God’s word. It is time that we go on the offensive!
The three product package sells for $30.
For those of you who don’t know…..
Initially founded as the National Federation for Decency, the American Family Association (AFA) originally focused on what it considered indecent television programming and pornography. The AFA says it promotes “traditional moral values” in media. A large part of that work involves “combating the homosexual agenda” through various means, including publicizing companies that have pro-gay policies and organizing boycotts against them.
In Its Own Words
“Homosexuality is a poor and dangerous choice, and has been proven to lead to a litany of health hazards to not only the individuals but also society as a whole.”
–AFA Action Alert, July 20, 2012
“[Islam] is, in fact, a religion of war, violence, intolerance, and physical persecution of non-Muslims.”
–Tim Wildmon, March 6, 2012
“The homosexual movement is a progressive outgrowth of the sexual revolution of the past 40 years and will lead to the normalization of even more deviant behavior.”
– Don Wildmon, AFA website, 1999 (still posted as of 2011).
“Homosexuality gave us Adolph Hitler, and homosexuals in the military gave us the Brown Shirts, the Nazi war machine and six million dead Jews.”
– Bryan Fischer, AFA director of issue analysis for government and public policy, 2010
“If President Obama, Congressional Democrats, and homosexual activists get their wish, your son or daughter may be forced to share military showers and barracks with active and open homosexuals who may very well view them with sexual interest.”
– AFA press release, February 2010
“Homosexuality is not only harmful to homosexuals themselves, but also to children and to society.”
– Stephen Bennett, AFA writer, 2004
“As with smoking, homosexual behavior’s ‘second hand’ effects threaten public health….Thus, individuals who choose to engage in homosexual behavior threaten not only their own lives, but the lives of the general population.”
– Gary Glenn, president of Michigan chapter of AFA, 2001
“[T]he homosexual lifestyle is characterized by anonymous sexual encounters and celebration of sexual obsession and perversion unparalleled in any other social group.”
– Richard Howe, “Homosexuality in America,” AFA publication, 1994
In 2012, Tom Wildmon had notorious anti-gay pastor Patrick Wooden, along with the FRC’s Tony Perkins, on the AFA’s “Today’s Issues” segment of their American Family Radio (AFR). Both Perkins and Wildmon expressed admiration for Wooden, who is perhaps best known for claiming that gay men have to wear diapers or “butt plugs” because they lose control of their bowels. He has also called homosexuality “deviant,” “immoral,” and “anti-human.”
