Posted on 05/30/2005 9:06:28 PM PDT by Cedar
If one looks for the company which has done the most to affirm and promote the homosexual lifestyle, he would be hard-pressed to find a company which has done more than Ford Motor Company. While this is hardly known to the general population, it is well known by numerous homosexual organizations. In fact, the Human Rights Campaign (a national homosexual organization whose goal is homosexual marriage) gave Ford a 100% corporate rating. Ford makes not only Ford, but also Lincoln, Mercury, Mazda, Volvo, Jaguar, and Land Rover.
From redefining family to include homosexual marriage, to giving hundreds of thousands of dollars to support homosexual groups and their agenda, to forcing managers to attend diversity training on how to promote the acceptance of homosexuality, to sponsoring a commitment (marriage) ceremony, to sponsoring Gay Pride Parades, Ford leads the way.
The goal of every homosexual organization supported by Ford is to get homosexual marriage legalized. The information below provides just a glimpse of how broad Fords support for the homosexual movement is.
Ford believes the effort to legalize homosexual marriage by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) is so important that the company is giving GLAAD up to $1,000 for every Jaguar or Land Rover (both Ford products) purchased this year. Click on the link and go to the bottom of the ad and you can read about Ford's support for GLAAD. GLAAD is one of the nation's largest homosexual groups promoting homosexual marriage. Ford's donations will help GLAAD in their efforts. (Go to the link posted with this thread--"AFA News".)
Ford's donations are not confined only to GLAAD. For years, Volvo has donated $500 to the Human Rights Campaign when a vehicle is purchased or leased. The fine copy at the bottom of the ad tells the reader about Volvo's donations to the Human Rights Campaign. Read More.... (at link posted with thread)
Ford defines "family" to include homosexual and lesbian couples. In the 2005 Gay Pride Day in Ferndale, Michigan, Ford sponsored the "family area". On the website, the heading reads "The Family Area is Generously Sponsored by Ford." The Ford logo and name are included on the page. The Ford Motor Company Fund is funded by Ford Motor Company.

Ford is promoting a new definition of family as being "people with modern values." Thomas Anderson, executive vice-president of Volvo Cars North America (a division of Ford Motor Company), said of their effort to target homosexuals and lesbians: "For us, it was very natural to address gay families. We're targeting people with modern day values. It's a value set and the Volvo-minded consumer is very diverse. 'Family' is much more than the traditional family."

Ford donates hundreds of thousands of dollars to homosexual groups to push the homosexual agenda. While it is nearly impossible to find the most recent gifts to homosexual groups, Corporate Patterns reports that at least since 1999 the company has been donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to homosexual groups. In 1999, Ford gave $200,000 to the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and $100,000 to the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Campaign.
Ford refused to give information on how much money they have given to homosexual groups in the past two years.
Unlike many corporations which give most of their donations to local groups to support projects in their local communities, Ford gives an inordinate amount to national liberal social causes. Read More (at posted link)
Ford's liberal, anti-American, and pro-fag politics is whay I will never again buy a Ford.
Sleeping with the enemy...
Ford Motor Co bonds are junk status. Now we know where the money is going.
Ford sucks. Just another reason why I'll never own another one as long as I live.
Yes, I was actually considering a Ford for my next car ----not now.
I wouldn't buy a Ford anyway!
More reason to NEVER buy one.
Many thanks for posting link.
Wow. That's amazing. Wonder who's pushing this agenda?
Whoa! Tons of stuff!
Ford has publicly announced they are giving $250,000 to help build a dedicated homosexual community center in Ferndale, Michigan. Regarding their donation, Ford Motor Company Fund (funded by Ford Motor Company) President Sandra Ulsh said, "Ford is proud to support Affirmations (Gay and Lesbian Community Center) and its partners." Ford said the new center will server as a "cornerstone for the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community in the state of Michigan. It will be a place to build and nurture a more inclusive and respectful society." Obviously, Ford thinks those who do not support homosexual marriage are not "inclusive and respectful". The campaign's top gift of $500,000 came from Allan Gilmour, former vice chairman of Ford Motor Company. Mr. Gilmour is now chairman of the Ford Motor Company Fund through which gifts to homosexual organizations are made. Read More
Ford held the first automotive conference aimed at bringing diversity to the car industry. "Diversity" is a code word for homosexuality. By defining themselves as a minority such as African-Americans, homosexual activists seek to bolster their claims of needing special treatment. Encouraged by Ford, more than 100 multinational companies attended the meeting which, according to 365Gay.com, included a goal of "broadening the number of LGBT workers in the field." Read More

Thanks for highlighting this.
I signed the petition.
Never mind making a quality automobile (ex-Ford owner, 1972-1986), how about F--- Only Real Deviants? How about trying to make automobiles that the mkt wants, or is that simply too controversial these days, you stupid sods. Buy a brand name and wreck it, that's Ford these days.
The only real question for the investing class is, who the devil might BUY this silly-ass company? Left to their own devices, they're clearly going bankrupt, and the only question is WHEN.
GM at least has Kerkorian (granted, that's not much help, his deal is clearly bankruptcy-cum-breakup and sell off the assets). Who is waiting in the wings for Ford? And, IF someone is doing so, WHY, f'Heaven's sake?
Henry Ford is spinning big time.
Glad I just bought a new Chevy last Thursday!!
Click on some of these too!
I remember a few months back a news story about Jaguar trying to advertise more with the gay community.
Perhaps Ford can commemorate their political interests and backing with a new model. Perhaps it will not have a gas cap/opening, or no outlet for the exhaust, or some other ridiculous shortcoming and oxymoronic design flaw.
That has GOT to be breaking some kind of law. No???
Those links are UNBELIEVABLE!
I'm SO GLAD I didn't buy a Ford!
Somehow, I can't see the poofs sporting something like this on their trucks...
