American Family Association now boycotting Ford


Donald and Tim Wildmon think Ford has gone homo-fabulous.

Donald and Tim Wildmon’s AmTaliban American Family Association couldn’t succeed with a Disney boycott, so now they are refocusing that message of intolerance and wingnuttery — and going after Ford.

AFA announced it has launched a boycott against the Ford Motor Company because of the company’s track record for supporting the homosexual agenda, including homosexual “marriage.” The pro-family group’s founder and chairman, Donald E. Wildmon, says Ford’s financial support of the homosexual agenda goes far beyond a few donations.

“From redefining family to include homosexual marriage; to giving hundreds of thousands of dollars to support homosexual groups and their agenda; to forcing managers to attend diversity training on how to promote the acceptance of homosexuality; to sponsoring a commitment ceremony — that is, ‘marriage’; to sponsoring ‘gay pride’ parades, Ford leads the way,” Wildmon states. “The goal of every homosexual organization supported by Ford is to get homosexual marriage legalized.”

According to Wildmon, there was so much material demonstrating the automaker’s track record on promoting the homosexual agenda that his group decided it was best to simply give it its own website: BoycottFord.com.

“The material on BoycottFord.com leaves no doubt where Ford stands on the homosexual issue,” he says. And people who visit the website, he claims, will be “surprised … to learn of Ford’s extensive promotion of homosexuality.”

…”Inform them you will not be buying a Ford product until they stop their promotion of the homosexual movement and homosexual marriage,” Wildmon says in the message to AFA supporters. If the dealer wants more information, he suggests individuals refer the dealer to the website for the boycott.

Her is Ford’s official policy statement on inclusion:

Diversity embodies all the differences that make us unique individuals. Not limited to physical aspects of race, ethnicity, gender, age, disability, and sexual orientation, it includes culture, religion, education, experience, opinions, beliefs, language, nationality and more.

At Ford Motor Company we recognize that diversity is not only a reality of our global nature, it’s a distinct advantage, and one that we value and embrace. We also know that we can only leverage the benefits of diversity by understanding and respecting the differences among all employees.

[And it has an affinity group]
…Ford Gay, Lesbian or Bisexual Employees (GLOBE)
Ford-GLOBE is active in making Ford a gay-friendly company. It strongly supports the company’s EEO policy. GLOBE has chapters in Great Britain, Germany and the U.S. providing worldwide networking and confidential employee support. Members actively champion diversity education, recruiting and marketing. They hold monthly membership meetings, lunches and socials while supporting many community events.

Let Ford know that its progressive policies are in the mainstream and that wingnuts like the Wildmons and their knuckle-dragging bible beaters are the ones on the fringe:
