(AgapePress) - As the boycott of the Ford Motor Company picks up steam, the automaker continues to help finance homosexual organizations pushing same-sex "marriage."
More than 20 pro-family groups are currently boycotting Ford, which also makes Jaguar, Volvo, Land Rover, Mazda, Lincoln and Mercury. The American Family Association, which initiated the boycott, has learned that Ford dealers recently met with corporate officials, and the boycott's effect on sales was the major topic of discussion.
In fact, while Ford's financial difficulties are not new, the company's woes appear to be accelerating. The automaker's sales dropped 5 percent in March and 7 percent in April, and Ford's stock has dropped more than 14 percent since the boycott began, reaching the lowest price in nearly 20 years.
"We've said all along that Ford should be concentrating on making better automobiles, rather than getting in the middle of the culture war," AFA chairman Don Wildmon says. "The latest round of bad economic news seems to bear this out." the rest
