American Hero: Wildmon resigns as AFA Chairman
Donald E. Wildmon, chairman of American Family Association (AFA) for more than 30 years, has resigned as chairman of the board for the national ministry. The resignation comes following several months of hospitalization. A bite from a mosquito carrying the St. Louis encephalitis virus caused Wildmon's illness.
Wildmon led the charge against pornography and was a giant critic of the so-called gay rights crowd as they pushed their agenda on America. Wildmon will continue to work with national pro-family groups.
His son Tim will replace him as president of AFA.
