Anti-gay groups boycotting Ford for supporting gay rights

The American Family Association and 18 other conservative groups are boycotting Ford Motor for placing car ads in gay publications. The AFA released a statement saying, "Ford has the right to financially support homosexual groups promoting homosexual marriage, but at the same time consumers have a right not to purchase automobiles made by Ford."

Huh? Because Ford places ads in gay publications, they are financially supporting homosexual groups promoting homosexual marriage? That's like saying because the AFA buys Web space that solicits donations from anyone, including ignorant assholes, they support ignorant assholes. Well, okay, the argument could use a little refining, but you get the idea.

And since when has Ford ever forced anyone to buy their cars? Is the AFA worried that some of its members might see the Ford ads in those gay publications, have an uncontrollable urge to go out and buy a Ford, and then have gay sex in it?
