by Jeremy Hooper

Despite the fact that the American Family Association and other "pro-family" groups are boycotting Ford Motor Company primarily because of its gay-friendly advertising (which they consider unwholesome and anti-family), the Parents Television Council has chosen Ford as one of their Top Ten BEST sponsors of "wholesome, family-oriented television shows."

Ford executives are rumored to be: "happy about the award, unless, of course, that makes gays angry. If that's the case, then we want to assure gays that we're standing strong with their community.
