This chapter examines the theology behind the media activism of Donald Wildmon, founder of the American Family Association (AFA). It aims to explain how Wildmon understand religion and its relationship to public action and how does religion change for evangelical Christians like him who had once been reluctant to address public issues when they become conservative activists. It also explores how religious organizations in the U.S. dealt with the entertainment industries and discusses Wildmon's relevant theological beliefs.

Keywords:   Donald Wildmon, media activism, theology, AFA, evangelical Christians, conservative activists
