Well, another little love letter from Tupelo's favorite 'phobe, Rev. NoNeck, has filtered its way through my e-mail. Seems they are having a gay festival in DEE-Troit in June, and they are havinging a weeeeee bit of a problem with the sponsor.
Here's the e-mail, with PB blandishments.
Ford To Sponsor Homosexual 'Marriage' at Motor City Pride
Showing contempt for the
concerns of traditional families, Ford has
agreed to sponsor the "Family
Area" at the Motor City Pride Event June 2-4 which
will feature a homosexual
marriage "commitment ceremony." The purpose of the
ceremony is to "make a
Ahhhh, Donny dear, the
actual website does not denote that the ceremony will place in the family area.
Also when you go to the ACTUAL site for the
ceremony, you do not find a sponor there.
According to the Motor City
Pride website, "Metropolitan Community
(homosexual) Church of Detroit and
Triangle Foundation are looking for
Same-Gender couples willing to make a
political statement by celebrating
their love in a commitment ceremony to be
held in the City of Ferdale on
June 4, 2006." When one clicks on the "Family"
section of the website, the
caption reads: "The Family Area (which includes the
'marriage' ceremony) is
Generously Sponsored by: Ford Motor Company Fund."
Ford Motor Company
Fund gets its funding from Ford Motor Company. Click here to see the Ford sponsorship.
I highlighted this part for a particular reason. Maybe its the fact that the education level in Mississippi is not the nest or what, but if you are going to make a case, investigate first.
This is the ACTUAL website for the Ford Motor Company fund, which clearly states: "Ford Motor Company Fund is not affiliated with the Ford Foundation. The Ford Foundation is a separate entity from Ford Motor Company. No member of the Ford family or Ford Motor Company management is on the Ford Foundation's Board of Directors."
Do you homework, Donny dear.

Since the boycott began, Ford stock has fallen 7%
and Associated Press
stated that Ford sales were down 5% in March. Many financial consultants believe
that Ford is headed for bankruptcy.
Oh don't take all the credit. GM sales have dropped too. But those sales come from slow selling, gas-guzzling SYVs, not your hoarde of born-again robots. Oh, and just so you know, Ford's drop was a mere 4% as opposed to GM's whopping 11% (read, fool: http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-autosales4apr04,1,6238687.story?coll=la-headlines-business).
As for bankruptcy, don't on it. The reason Ford, and most of the American auto industry is in such dire starits is not due sales alone, although, I must admit, Ford has had some pretty boring cars with that blue oval attached recently, but with high costs of things like health care, which could be eased with, say, a goverment health plan that covers all Americans. Now, Rev, I'm sure that you are for THAT, right? Oh,I forget, goverment healthplans make you break out in hives.
Besides, Bill Ford is becoming the Lee Iococca of the new millienum. He has stated uncatagorically that Chapter Anything is not an option. He sites "muscular" liquidity and Ford has stated its third consecutive profit. And with 18% share of the market, he doesn't need you, Donny dear.
It appears that Ford is more willing to face bankruptcy than ending their
support of homosexual groups and causes.
On the contrary, Nimrod. It seems that Ford is REACHING OUT to a market that flexes considerable muscle. According to Diversity Best Practices and HRC, GLBT spending power is projected top well over $600 million this year.
$600 million. That is a pretty nice chink of a $300 billion ecomomy. ANd powerful numbers to walki into a board room with. SOething you should know next time you decide to hold up a company.

In short, once again Wildmon shows the depth of his dumbth. the fact that he has to manipulate facts and not research them for his arguments show that he is on very shaky ground.
Basically, in your in Detroit, go to the festival. If you are looking for a car, By a Ford.
And if you are Donald Wildmon, or any one of his zombies, pray for a brain.
