Ford saga cont'd: Gays now happy, AFAs now bitter

by Jeremy Hooper

  Responding to the fantastic statement Ford made yesterday committing themselves once again to the principles of diversity and fairness, the American Family Association's Don Wildmon (pic.) says today via press release:

We had an agreement with Ford, worked out in good faith. Unfortunately, some Ford Motor Company officials made the decision to violate the good faith agreement. We are now considering our response to the violation and expect to reach a decision very soon"
...
All we wanted was for Ford to refrain from choosing sides in the cultural war, and supporting groups which promote same-sex marriage is not remaining neutral"

Wildmon also indicates that the option of an AFA boycott is now "very much alive."

Consequently, we hear Ford executives have all quietly packed up their things and purchased one-way Greyhound tickets to rural Pennsylvania, where they plan to live a less "damned if you, damned if you don't" sort of existence casually selling apples on the side of a rural road.
