Boycott Ford

Submitted for your approval...

Like me, you are probably not a person who hates homosexuals. Instead, you are probably, like me, a person who disagrees with the homosexual life style in general, because you simply cannot identify with it. If you know your Bible, you are probably also against homosexuality as a way of life because it runs contrary to Scripture -- the Word of God. The Bible describes it as perversion and immorality. It further goes on to say three times in a row in Romans 1:24-28 (only 5 short verses) that God has "given up" on homosexuals. I am wont to quote the old saying, "God loves the sinner, but not the sin"... God loves all people (homosexual or otherwise), but God hates the sin of homosexuality. God wants those who practice such "abominations" to turn away from their sins towards God's way.

From a political perspective, I am clearly against the homosexual agenda. It is one thing to claim homosexuality as a sexual preference... an act that one may practice in privacy. It is clearly another matter to practice political activism which strives to equate homosexuality with traditional heterosexuality. It is a further insult to suggest that those who practice such aberrant behavior must be afforded the same rights and benefits now due only to legitimate, traditional heterosexual couples.

I am inclined to believe that 4,000 years of tradition should not be overturned in a single stroke to console the guilty consciences of a few sexually deviant individuals who seek to make their illegitimate practices palatable through legality. I am further not inclined to believe that 4,000 years of tradition should be overturned in a single stroke because there are some who feel sad that homosexuals may be "condemned" to practice their deviate behavior in private.

If you are like me in this regard, you may wish to click on the image below and join in a Boycott against the Ford Motor Company which is obviously pushing the homosexual agenda with lots of money and political influence...

Nothing to do with their politics, but I've been boycotting Ford for decades already...I'm a GM kind of guy.
(That, and Harley of course)

You beat me to it, camojack!

Here is a picture of my GMC truck. Like the Energizer™ bunny, it just keeps going and going.

I don't have a picture of my GMC truck online...but it's a '99. The wife's car is a '91 Buick Regal. Both are General Motors products, though.

But to actually be ON topic, my company (Boeing) has benefits for same sex partners too, it's a bit of a national (international, even) trend...

camo,
I'm sorry to hear that... Now do we have to boycott Boeing too? And I was rooting for them versus Airbus too. Sheesh!

This whole boycotting concept is rather sexist, anyway. Why don't we girlcott something?!

Here is a little something that was in my inbox at work:

This message is being sent to all employees from Boeing President, CEO and CFO James Bell.

June is Gay Pride Month, when we celebrate the contributions that this particular group of employees has made to Boeing's success. Since first publication of the Gay Pride Month link in Boeing News Now earlier this month, I and members of the Executive Council have received a number of negative and derogatory messages against the company's support of Gay Pride Month.

Boeing observes various “heritage months”: Black History Month in February; Women's History Month in March; Asian Pacific Month in May; Gay Pride Month in June; Hispanic Heritage Month in September, Disability Awareness Month in October, American Indian Month in November, and Multicultural Celebration Day in December. The point of all of these is to drive inclusion, fight harassment and discrimination, and remind us to value people as individuals. Recognizing diversity—all elements of it—is a key component of our business strategy.

The foundation of our success at Boeing is based on our ability to attract and retain the best people possible for the jobs we have. To do that, we must create and maintain an environment where, collectively, we can design, produce, and support products and services that make our customers and shareholders successful. A key part of creating that environment is aimed at helping all employees know that they are appreciated for the contributions they make toward helping Boeing meet its business objectives.

We need to ensure we treat all employees—including gay and lesbian employees—with dignity and respect. While we could point to the law as the rationale for our actions, I believe that it's our obligation to demonstrate on a regular basis not only our commitment—but also our resolve—to provide an opportunity for each employee to learn more about the diversity that underlies this company's strength.

I felt compelled to respond:

What's next...pedophile month? I believe in the Judeo-Christian ethic of "Love Thy Neighbor", but that does NOT require me to consider acceptable any and all deviant practices in which my neighbor may be involved. They should keep their proclivities to themselves. Sometimes "P.C." = "B.S."; I daresay this is one of them...

camo,
We SHOULD treat gays and lesbians with respect... but that doesn't mean we need to have a special day to celebrate them.

If they are gay or lesbian by choice, then why celebrate someone's non-traditional sexual preference? Are we supposed to be excited because they choose to be unnaturally different from the vast majority of human beings?

And if they are gay or lesbian by genetics, then why celebrate their genetic defect?

Am I missing something here?
