[The American Family Association whiners calling for a boycott of Ford because they took out an ad in a gay magazine.]

Ford and 3 Men in a Shower

Sales of Ford automobiles were flat in November, rising only 0.4 percent when compared to sales during November 2006. Since AFA began a boycott of Ford in March 2006, sales have dropped in 18 of the 21 months. Ford suffered a 12.1 percent loss for the year.

Ford continued to show support for the homosexual agenda, running a full page ad in the Dec. 07 - Jan. 08 homosexual publication OUT! The ad, for Ford's Volvo brand, was adjacent to a photo of three men taking a shower together. To see the ad and the shower photo, click here. (Warning! The photo is extremely graphic and offensive.)

AFA began the boycott of Ford after the company reneged on an agreement to stop supporting homosexual efforts. Ford reneged because of pressure from homosexual activists.

AFA asked Ford to remain neutral in the culture war, but Ford refused.

Please call your local dealer and tell him you are participating in the Ford boycott. To find your dealer, click the Take Action link below.

Please forward this to your family and friends!

Sure, the drop in sales has nothing to do with the current financial status of the world. I'm totally convinced that it's because of their boycott.

You know, because we don't have that whole recession thing going on or anything.

Unwarranted self-importance, your name is fundie.

The three men in the shower is on the letters page. The ford ad is opposite that. Are you really that stupid?

C'mon, we all know why they really uploaded that photo ;)

Yeah, American auto makers where just rolling in fields of gold before you started this boycott...

Well, I can rest assured that all poverty, violence, and injustice have been eradicated. They must be, for these Christians to waste time boycotting things because they're NEXT to other things.

Thinking Allowed

Ford has no control of the layout of the magazine. But then again, if the ad was next to a recipe for apple pie, this outfit would still boycot Ford.

Just because the ad is being boycotted by a bunch of ignorant and bigoted fundies almost wants me to buy an F350.

Is anyone else thinking, "Rub-a-dub-dub, three men in a tub"?

And of course, advertisers haven't got much control over the sorts of pictures and articles they're placed near.

This almost makes up for the fact that Carl Edwards (NASCAR driver whom I hate with an undying hate) drives a Ford.

A business trying to increase its profits by targeting a group of consumers in an attempt to widen the consumer base? UNTHINKABLE!

My ex girlfriend wants a Mustang. I should tell her she needs to get one now. :D

These people seriously have too much time on their hands.

And how can a picture of three men taking a shower offend someone?

Anyone else ever wonder how groups like this find these ads? Surely they can't be perusing this kind of material.

Oh, wait, they do it for "research". Yeah, that's it.

How dare those gays sell advertising space to anything non-gay!

"The three men in the shower is on the letters page. The ford ad is opposite that. Are you really that stupid?" -- Nightboomfer

No, they're not that stupid. They're just that dishonest. They know that if they want to make the Fundies angry enough to boycott, they have to make the ad sound as raunchy as possible.

Smells Like a Monkey

Does this mean that fundies don't approve of football? I mean, that's like 70 guys in a shower after every game.

AFA asked Ford to remain neutral in the culture war, but Ford refused.

Wait, what? I'd say buying advertising space regardless of who's selling it is about as fucking neutral as you can get. Refusing to buy advertising space solely because of the fact that it's a gay magazine that's selling it pretty much the definition of non-neutral.

You don't get to say "remain neutral" and mean "join our side".

Morons.

What is the "culture war"?

10/16/2008 4:42:56 PM



They might just as well start a website called BoycottEverything.com

"The photo is extremely graphic and offensive." Three men in a shower, none of them even facing the camera or touching each other. Offensive..?? Have these people ever had a P.E. class in a public school? Hell, have they even seen themselves in the mirror? Michelangelo's David is more graphic and offensive than this! What the hell??

If it is in a GAY magazine how did they find it?

What's wrong with three guys in a shower? I thought that cleanliness was next to godliness!

Why do you hate capitalism so much?

Also, Ford's drop in sales couldn't have had anything to do with the price of gas and Ford's reliance on large, low-mpg vehicles, right?
