For months, Rev. Donald Wildmon (affectionatly called "NoNeck" in these bloggings" and his American Family ASSociation have been ridig Pepsico because it committed the cardinal sin of actually giving money to GLBT-positive groups like Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG). The ordered a boycott of Pepsico products.
That meant I drank more Pepsi than I usually do.
But now it seems that Pepsi has, as many have, bowed-down to King No-Neck:
PepsiCo practices reflect change; AFA suspends boycotthttp://www.afa.net/Detail.aspx?id=2147491835
February 12, 2010
American Family Association (AFA) has suspended its boycott of PepsiCo. After monitoring the company for several months, AFA is satisfied the company has withdrawn its major financial contributions to gay activist groups.
AFA launched a boycott of PepsiCo after the company made $500,000 donations to Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) in 2008. Records from PepsiCo, HRC and PFLAG indicate repeat donations did not occur in 2009.
AFA President Tim Wildmon said more than 500,000 people signed the Boycott PepsiCo Pledge.
Wildmon said a few minor issues remain, and AFA will continue to bring these to the attention of PepsiCo. “We feel we have made our point," he said. "Boycotts have been a last resort for us at AFA, and the PepsiCo boycott was started to address issues of concern to us – especially the promotion of the homosexual agenda in the culture. AFA will continue to challenge major U.S. companies to remain neutral in the culture wars rather than to use their resources to promote controversial issues.”
What else can be said? How do you fight ignorance when it seems that ignorance has become the rule of the day? When a country seems to accept the lie rather than the truth.
And where were the truth-tellers to fight this man. I seem to be the only person going after this false prophet. What...do you think just because a non-conservative is in the White House, turds like Wildmon should be ignored? By now, non-hetros should know that they do not truly have a friend in the White House (unless a certain Executive Order is being crafted as we speak, which we doubt.). Am I the only one who is exposing Donald and Tim Wildmon for the would-be Klansman that they are?
Take Roy Moore (or as we called him when he was Cheif Justice on the Alabama Supreme Court, Judge "Dolemite (because his name is similar to Dolemite's creator, Rudy RAY Moore)." This is the man who not only wanted to place a two-ton rock in front of the SCOAL front yard, but intemated in a anti-gay ruling that he was not that much against excecution of gays. This is the man who has founded The Foundation of Moral Law which seemingly thinks of the separation of chruch and state as an inconvienent joke.
Now, not only is this clown running for Governor of this state, and that he is rocking the TeaParty house at their functions, but his foundation is planning a rally this weekend, seemingly to support a second Southern split from the Union.
Now should one worry if Moore should wind up as Governor? Yes. He's not leading the polling....college chancellor Brad Byrne leads AL Republicans with 20% of folks willing to vote for him...Moore is a close second with 17%.
Add that to the fill-in-the-blank phobes populating the Tea Bag parties, plus the efforts of Wildmon and hsi bunch and things do not look good.
And unless the inetellegent not only step up defeats Wildmon and his ilk, kith, and kin, it will only get worse.
