August 14, 2015 | Posted in Current Events | By

A_Cross_of_Candle_LightActor John Rhys-Davies–known for his roles in the Indiana Jones franchise and the Lord of the Rings–went on comedian Adam Carolla’s podcast this week, where he discussed, among other things, the persecution Christians are facing in the Middle East, saying,

“Basically, Christianity in the Middle East and in Africa is being wiped out — I mean not just ideologically but physically, and people are being enslaved and killed because they are Christians. And [America] and [the U.K.] are doing nothing about it. . . .

“We have lost our moral compass completely, and, unless we find it, we’re going to lose our civilization.”

Starnes writes AFA was listed as a domestic hate group alongside the KKK, the Black Panthers, the Nation of Islam, and Neo-Nazis. Moreover, a photograph taken by a soldier with a camera phone shows the information slide on American Family Association contained a picture of Fred Phelps of Westboro Baptist Church in Kansas, despite the fact Phelps has no known ties to AFA.

American Family Association has issued a response, saying,

“Let me be very clear. Your AFA does not condone the actions of Phelps and his followers, nor have we ever advocated hatred towards anyone, even those we don’t agree with.”
