Breaking: Ford no longer allowed to even fart in a gay-friendly manner without catching sh*t

by Jeremy Hooper

   In yet another attempt to make the Ford Motor Company feel as if they are in the wrong for supporting tolerance, acceptance, and diversity, California "pro-family" activist James Hartline is decrying the decision of a Los Angeles Ford dealership, Galpin Ford, to serve as a corporate sponsor for the Greater Los Angeles Chapter of the Golden State Gay Rodeo Association. Elaborating on his distaste, the activist warns Agape Press:

"These gay rodeos are not necessarily marketed in a way where people will know because they don't read the gay newspapers [or] the gay press," the activist says. "So a lot of these families will think, 'Oh, it's a rodeo.' So they bring their kids to this event, thinking they're just going to another fun rodeo."

So instead of just watching bucking broncos and barrel racing, families may encounter men dressed up as women as well as "mocking" of family values, says Hartline -- and unknowing parents will be very shocked by other things they and their children will see, he adds. He calls that the "unthinking mindset" of the Ford Motor Company, that it would give corporate backing to such events in the name of diversity without even caring about the impact it will make on children and families.

Because that is our dark secret -- in the unlikely event that gay-unfriendly families are fooled into attending our events by misleading advertising, we chain them to their seats and force them to watch. Upon seeing the first Pride flag, the parents who find us evil and immoral lose all free will and the ability to say, "Oh -- this isn't what we thought and we don't agree; we're out of here!" We force feed our "radical agendas" into their impressionable heads, and we don't let them leave until their kids have agreed to start a gay-straight alliance at their school, be it high, elementary, or pre. We are evil, evil people and our rodeos are nothing but cesspools of bull-based debauchery. ::humble scribe rolls eyes so dramatically, his contacts fly from his eyes and smack the neighboring wall with a resounding thud::

Agape goes on to report:

The Christian activist claims the homosexual agenda is being forced into very family-friendly arenas -- like rodeos -- by corporations such as Ford through sponsorship. Hartline believes strongly that consumers need to let their dealerships know such anti-family sponsorship will not be tolerated.

And we couldn't agree with the last seven words more -- "anti-family sponsorship will not be tolerated." This being the case, we will stop at nothing to ensure that Mr. Hartline and all of his friends who've hijacked the concept of "family" NEVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER succeed in their non-stop campaigns to foist their falsely compassionate agendas of inequality-encouragement onto society at large. Giddyup.
