Background

The American Freedom Coalition (AFC) began in 1987 with a merger of Robert Grant's fundamentalist organization Christian Voice and the American Constitution Committee of Reverend Sun Myung Moon's Unification Church, with the Moon conglomerate providing the initial funding. Its first activity, orchestrated by direct-mail expert Richard Viguerie, was a massive fundraising effort for the Nicaraguan contras and Oliver North. The AFC has set up field offices around the country and regularly comments on US foreign and domestic policy. During the Gulf War (Desert Storm), the AFC organized patriotic pro-war rallies nationwide. Local cells of the AFC have become increasingly shrill in their campaigns against abortion, gay rights, and "weird art."
