American Family Assn: ABC is pro-gay and anti-Christian.....
..... :rofl: :crazy:



ABC has one standard for homosexuals and a different standard for Christians

Poll: Would you be willing to boycott sponsor of Dana Jacobson's show



ABC fired an actor because of an anti-gay comment, but gave anchorwoman who told an audience 'F---Jesus' what amounted to a one-week vacation.

Last June, when actor Isaiah Washington, star of ABC's show Grey's Anatomy, made an anti-gay slur in reference to openly homosexual T.R. Knight, the network immediately fired Washington.

But when ESPN (owned by ABC) anchorwoman Dana Jacobson publicly said "F--- Notre Dame," "F--- Touchdown Jesus" and finally "F--- Jesus," the network gave her a one week suspension. In essence, ABC gave Jacobson a one week vacation.

ABC has two standards, one for anti-gay comments and one for anti-Christian comments. Those who use anti-gay comments are punished. Those who use anti-Christian comments are supported.

If ABC refuses to fire Jacobson, would you be willing to support a one-year boycott of the sponsor of her program?

Take the Poll!

Would you be willing to support a one-year boycott of the sponsor of Dana Jacobson's show if ABC refuses to fire her? The results of the poll will be provided to ABC and to sponsors of Jacobson's show.

Please forward this to family and friends. After you have taken the poll, please call ESPN at 1-860-766-2000 and politely ask that they fire Jacobson.



Take the Poll NOW!

2. Donald Wildmon, desperately grasping for relevance
It's all slipping away, isn't it Donald? If the contributions dry up, you might actually have to get a real job. Talk about a sign of the apocalypse!

6. I tried to participate in their email bombardment
of ABC about whatsherface. For some reason, my email, submitted through their web site and titled "You go, girl!" didn't make it through the AFA filters. Bastards.

8. To bad he can't be sued for using the word family
Edited on Sun Jan-27-08 03:24 AM by casus belli
Since his homophobic crusade intentionally asserts itself as the de facto representation for American families. That anyone could be allowed to spew such filth under the guise of strengthening families -- without a challenge -- is nearly as sickening as the thought processes that must have gone into dreaming up such a thing in the first place.

It's kinda like those who claim to be pro-life and then advocate war. It defies reason.

edit: grammatical error
