This morning, AFA Executive Vice President Ed Vitagliano appeared on Fox News network in response to Apple’s recent promotion of gender confusion with “pregnant man,” “the third gender,” and other new emojis.
Ed was interviewed by “America’s Newsroom” hosts Bill Hemmer and Dana Perino. He said, “These are very complex issues when you’re dealing with gender and human sexuality. That’s why I think parents look askance at [companies} who insinuate themselves into family discussions about that complexity.”
In an AFA press release earlier this week, Vitagliano said, “We can all hope that the lunacy being exhibited by corporate America in its thirst for woke approval will one day be rejected and scorned by the vast majority of people in this country. But this woke pandering is also quite sad, because there really are people who are struggling with their identity and feel lost. The answer isn’t to encourage them to continue wandering aimlessly in the darkness of their delusion, because that will only prolong their suffering. The answer is the gospel and the love of God. That is the light that will help the lost find their way home and find the peace they desire.”
For years, American Family Association (AFA) has watched the momentum of LGBT activism continue to grow with little or no pushback from Bible-believing pastors and churches. It is our deeply held conviction that, now more than ever, true followers of Christ must be ready to engage culture with truth and compassion by offering the gospel to those who are sexually broken.
In 2018, American Family Studios, AFA’s film division, began production of a film to bring clarity to the topic. In His Image has been bathed in prayer from its conception and it is AFA’s response to the confusion many are facing.
In His Image is a critical and urgent message designed to equip the church to answer culturally controversial questions about gender and sexuality from a biblical perspective. Every church in America is filled with hurting people asking these tough questions: Can you be gay and be a Christian? What if someone genuinely feels trapped in the wrong body? Did God make me this way? Is change even possible?
This feature-length documentary presents much-needed truth with compassion and clarity through powerful personal testimonies, careful Bible teaching, and scientific evidence.
I hope you will take a few minutes to learn more about In His Image today.
