Ford says AFA's being less than truthful; we say, 'so basically they're being the AFA'

by Jeremy Hooper

The American Family Association's claims that their boycott of the Ford Motor Company has led to a large drop in car sales for the company -- false, the automaker says.

The American Family Association's claims that the company will hold a special meeting to discuss the boycott -- false, the automaker says.

The vast majority of the American Family Association's claims about any and everything, especially when it's gay related -- false, this writer says.

So what's more likely to be true? Decency and fairness always win out in the end, and since a boycott of a car maker because of their support for the gay community is built on the principles of neither, this AFA-initiated Fordcott will one day be remembered for being the patently indecent, grossly unfair, woefully short-sighted, deeply offensive affair that it truly is.
