Google’s announcement made over the weekend that it is embarking on a global LGBT rights initiative, the Legalize Love campaign, has apparently given the religious right a bit of a headache.
You see, they who love the boycott just aren’t sure they can boycott Google. I’ll let the American Family Association’s Buster Wilson explain:
Actually, the religious right’s problem is a bit bigger than that, especially if they’re not going to be willfully selective about their very unsuccessful boycott campaigns. Both Microsoft and Apple support gay rights, so between them and Google… well, in terms of using computers, the religious right may just have to go Amish. And I for one support that decision.
And by the way AFA-affiliated One Million Moms, don’t think I haven’t noticed how silent you’ve been on all this.
I’m waiting for your strong and defiant statement on how you’ll no longer be accepting web traffic from Google, using any of their products or products that integrate with them. And better take down your Facebook page too while you’re at it.
Or is it in fact only your moral duty to boycott businesses and products, like JC Penney or Archie Comics, when it doesn’t overly inconvenience you?
