Alliance Defense Fund

The Alliance Defense Fund views homosexuality as the single greatest threat to religious freedom in the United States.

Acoalition of thirty-five Christian Right groups founded the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) in 1993. The principal architects of the ADF included Dr. D. James Kennedy of Coral Ridge Ministries, Rev. Donald Wildmon of the American Family Association, and Dr. James Dobson of Focus on the Family. Alan Sears, executive director of Attorney General Edwin Meese’s Commission on Pornography during the Reagan administration, is president of the ADF, headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona; Craig Osten, author of The Homosexual Agenda: Exposing the Principal Threat to Religious Freedom, is its vice president.

What the Alliance Defense Fund Believes

  • Homosexuality creates pedophilia and other sexual crimes.
  • The ultimate goal of the gay rights movement is to silence Christians by making prolife demonstrations illegal and censoring all religious broadcasting. When the courts of the land have made homosexuality acceptable, Christians will be forced to accept gays as teachers, preachers, and scoutmasters.

Activities: The ADF has actively challenged the legality of gay marriage, adoption, foster parenting, domestic partner benefits, and service in the military.
