The Christian community and the nation at large are mourning the loss of a prominent figure in the pro-family movement, Rev. Donald Wildmon. The founder of the American Family Association (AFA) passed away on Thursday in Tupelo, leaving behind an enduring legacy of religious advocacy and family values.

Wildmon, an ordained United Methodist minister, author, and former radio host, dedicated his life to promoting faith-based family values. His death was reported by AFA and has prompted an outpouring of tributes and condolences from all corners of the country.

Born on January 18, 1938, Wildmon started addressing public issues aggressively in the late 1970s. He founded the AFA in 1977 as the National Federation for Decency, aiming to combat what he believed to be the entertainment industry’s negative influence on America’s moral compass.

Under Wildmon’s leadership, the AFA grew into one of the largest and most effective pro-family organizations in the country, advocating for Christian ethics in American society. Even after his retirement in 2010, Wildmon’s influence remained salient, with his son, Tim, continuing to lead the organization as its president.

Known affectionately as “Brother Don,” Wildmon was remembered by the AFA as a pioneer of the pro-family movement whose legacy of faithfulness and love of family will continue to inspire future generations.

As the news of his passing spreads, many have taken to social media to express their sorrow and share stories about how Wildmon’s work impacted their lives. His contribution to the Christian community and the pro-family movement has left an indelible mark on American society.

Our thoughts are with the Wildmon family and the AFA community during this difficult time. As we remember Rev. Donald Wildmon, let his legacy inspire us to continue upholding and advocating for the values he held dear.
