American Family Association Targets Radio Hosts Over Association With Critic

The American Family Association has taken aim at fellow religious conservative Brannon Howse over his criticism of the AFA’s recent sponsorship of GOP presidential candidate Rick Perry’s The Response prayer meeting (see, The New Religious Right And Its Threat To The Church).

Earlier this week, Jim Stanley, program director of AFA’s radio network, American Family Radio, sent notices to two talk show hosts who are associated with Howse, informing them that continued presence on the AFA’s radio network was conditioned on severing ties with Howse.

The talk show hosts, John Loeffler and Todd Friel, have shows aired by American Family Radio and also speak at Howse sponsored events. According to Tim Wildmon, president of the AFA, “we identified two people with programs on our networks and told them, ’you have to make a choice.’” In defense of the move, Wildmon said “AFR is under no obligation to run programs of individuals who are going to help Brannon when he is attacking our friends. We make programming decisions all the time.”

Howse heads Worldview Weekend, a socially conservative ministry which espouses similar conservative views as the AFA on culture war issues as abortion and homosexuality. However, Howse charges that religious right leaders have formed improper religious alliances with leaders in the New Apostolic Reformation such as Cindy Jacobs in order to promote a conservative political agenda. About his stance, Howse said,

“Christians must defend the gospel when we believe Christian leaders are giving credibility to what the Bible describes as false teaching. About Wildmon’s concerns, Howse added, “I have avoided naming this radio network or pro-family group and I have avoided naming several of the pro-family groups hoping they would repent.”

The AFA is defending darkness…

“And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.”  John 3:19-21

  1. Maybe from this Howse will also be lead out of the “culture-warrior” mentality and realize the the holiness of the Gospel in comparison to the kingdoms of the world.

    Glad another recognizes the sinister nature of the NAR’s theonomist, americo-constantinian agenda.

  2. Brannon left the ‘culture-warrior’ mentality quite a while ago, Cal (if you listen to his radio program). He is one of very few who has taken a courageous stand against the ‘Christian’ right and its association with the NAR…and he is not backing down. He lovingly tried to inform the AFA of the false teachings of dominionism …in case they didn’t know. Rather than looking into the truth of the matter for themselves, they now are trying to punish and silence him. Thugs..in my book. I want nothing to do with the AFA, Family Research Council, and the whole lot of them…

Music from Broken Chords

Down in the human heart, crush'd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness Chords that were broken will vibrate once more. From the Hymn "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby
