Tonight from 365gay.com comes this
In a thinly veiled threat of another boycott the American Family Association and 41 other groups are demanding that Ford live up to a commitment to end funding to LGBT organizations and cease advertising in the gay media.
But it seems the AFA has learned a lesson from their first attempt …
While letter does not specifically threaten the carmaker with a boycott it says, “We can not, and will not, sit by as Ford supports a social agenda aimed at the destruction of the family.”
The letter also imposes a January 20 for a reply. “Should you decide to respond, please do so by letter since we can no longer trust Ford to keep its verbal word,” the letter concludes.
So let's get this straight (ha). The AFA threatens a boycott, Ford caves in so the AFA declares victory. Then, the gays come to the table and Ford agrees to continue advertising in the gay media.
BUT just when you think it all makes sense …. comes this …
(New York City) Two more stations have cancelled NBC's “The Book of Daniel” bringing the total to four.
KAMR-TV in Amarillo, Texas, and WTVA-TV in Tupelo, Mississippi each said they were bowing to community demands to drop the series which features one of primetime's few openly gay male characters, has a lesbian supporting character and is written by a gay screenwriter.
No wonder the AFA refuses to give up. Its working! 4 whole television stations have demonstrated that censorship, intolerance and capitulation are their guiding principles.
Hurrah for the homophobes!
