And what, are they also taking your Mustang's keys in the offering plate?

by Jeremy Hooper

   It's being reported that in response to the American Family Association's gay-unfriendly boycott of Ford Motor Company, some of the nation's pastors are actually going so far as to preach against the automaker in their Sunday sermons.

Which is just great, as we now feel totally foolhardy for whipping out our Us Weekly and reading every time our preacher told us to "lose our Focus" last Sunday. Who'd a thunk he really wanted us to drive our Ford off a cliff in order to save our souls? After all, we were in a church, not a Chevy dealership. It just seems...inappropriate.

In related "pro-family" war against Ford news, we hear the AFA's equally gay-stigmatizing buddies at Focus on the Family will soon change the first part of their name to "Camry."
