Who drives those seriously uncool cars anyway?

The Ford Motor Company has come to an agreement with the American Family Association to avoid a boycott of its products (a la AFA's attempt to boycott Disneyland due to its gay-days). Ford rolled over (!) and will end its advertising in the gay press to avoid Christian families not buying its crap cars.

WardsAuto says:
"Ford Motor Co.'s decision to cease advertising in gay publications for its Jaguar and Land Rover luxury brands is part of a truce between the auto maker and the AFA to avert a threatened boycott by the right-wing Christian conservative group. AFA called a boycott in May to protest of what the group called an 'enthusiastic' support of the gay rights agenda. At issue were several ads Ford’s Premier Automotive Group brands were running in gay and lesbian publications in Europe and Ford’s sponsorship of homosexual events. In addition, Ford has agreed not to sponsor any future gay and lesbian events but will continue to maintain its employee policies, such as same-sex partner benefits."
Uroskin says: Drive a Mini instead!
