Too Much Effort to Boycott Google, Say Anti-Gay Activists

Too Much Effort to Boycott Google, Say Anti-Gay Activists

 

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?

Dffbcgdf C, so grumpy...get up on the wrong side of the bed? The extreme right side perhaps? Sharp corners? Not too sure what your comments have to do with the topic at hand...except to spout off against liberals using electricity which make you think that we are hypocrites. It's true that right wingers can power themselves on hot air alone. At least you aren't being anti-gay...or at least keeping it to yourself...just trolling for comments...splash, caught one, Lol. Yes, I'm on the grid and no doubt so are you, or are you powered solely by right wing hot air alone? You can rail away (avoid the coal laden steam trains ~ are your politics in that century?) If you laughed your A off you need to fix it soon. Surgery in the States can be expensive, are you covered by insurance?

The grumpy right wing still use Google! Somewhat like the Catholic hospital refusing to compensate a husband for the loss of his wife and two babies after they died in child birth and in this case the Catholic hospital did not consider the babies as 'persons' in order to avoid compensation.

LMAO @ all the comments here! You environmentalists are all for stopping companies like the Keystone pipeline, yet you drive cars that pollute So you're all against pollution as long as it's not too inconvenient. You claim to care about people and thus think companies that traffic people should be illegal, but you support use electricity, overlooking the inconvenient fact that lots of coal miners died to bring you your electricity. You also drive cars even though far fewer people died during the days of horses and buggies. Maybe you're the ones who should go Amish.
