Christian conservative group the American Family Association (AFA) on Monday claimed that Archie comics is corrupting young people by promoting “the occult and homosexuality.”

In a recent issue of Life with Archie, Archie Andrews died while attempting to save the life of Kevin Keller, the comics' first openly gay character.

Larry Tomczak joined Today's Issues' Tim Wildmon and Ed Vitagliano in criticizing Archie.

“Since the 90s, comic books have changed and have increasingly had the occult and homosexuality, all this stuff,” Vitagliano said. “I know I sound like an old crank but when kids grow up being fed lies, why should we surprised if they believe lies? Why should we be surprised if they say there is nothing wrong with same-sex marriage? These kids grew up watching their parents laugh at Will & Grace, which changed people's opinions, and now the kids don't have a problem with it.” (The video is embedded on this page.
