In which the AFA offends all victims of *actual* child abuse

by Jeremy Hooper

Ya gotta give them credit: When it comes to finding the most extreme line to cross, the American Family Association is without rival:

This weekend, the Northwest Arkansas Gay Pride Parade will have a 10-year-old boy, Will Marshall [ed. note: it's actually "Will Phillips"], serving as Grand Marshal. The boy says of homosexuals that this “is the way they are born.”

“It’s shameful that adults would abuse a brain-washed child in this way,” said AFA president Tim Wildmon. “He’s obviously just parroting the nonsense he’s been told by manipulative adults.For gay activists to trot out this child and make him the poster child for promoting unnatural sexual expression is a form of child abuse.

“When you realize that the FDA won’t allow a male to donate blood if he’s had sex with another male even one time since 1977, you begin to understand the enormous health risks involved in this kind of sexual behavior,” added Wildmon. “We call on Mayor Lioneld Jordan of Fayetteville to cancel his plans to issue a proclamation celebrating homosexual behavior and Gay Pride. There is nothing about homosexual conduct to be proud of, and much to be ashamed of.”

AFA says using 10-year old as gay pride parade grand marshal a form of child abuse [AFA]

Maybe they really meant to say "ab use"? As in: The child will use his abdominal muscles to assist in his marching? Maybe? Possibly? Please someone say "yes"!

Come on, work with us. We're too content with life at this moment to even believe there are grown adults out there who liken our sexual orientation and its benign acceptance to one of the most heinous forms of violence one can perpetuate!

UPDATE, 6/24: Fayetteville, Arkansas, to American Family Association: “No thank you!” [TWO]
