AFA wants boycott of Google over "Legalize Love" campaign
New Civil Rights ^ | July 11 2012 | David Badash

Posted on 07/11/2012 4:02:42 AM PDT by scottjewell

Buster Wilson today suggested conservatives boycott Google for the search engine and advertising giant’s recently announced “Legalize Love” campaign to decriminalize homosexuality around the world.

Wilson, general manager of the American Family Association‘s radio stations . . . acknowledges a boycott against Google “is going be tough,” and will “test the meat of our convictions.”:

"I said that I did not want to support any efforts like this, in fact, we are a part of boycotting efforts similar to this with other businesses. This is going to be hard for a lot of us. A lot of us are so integrated into Google and Google products, this is going to be a tough one. It’s more than just a search engine — many of us have Android phones the Android system is a Google product. Many of us use Google calendar and Google task, and Gmail, and all those kinds of things. YouTube and all the other things — it’s not just the search engine. So this is going be tough. This one’s going to be one of those situations where I guess we’ll test the meat of our convictions."

This is the only site which carried the story as a news item, but I was wondering - given their history - if the AFA would weigh in on this Google story.

Time will tell to what extent such a boycott will have an effect.

I deleted my Google toolbar and I am sticking with Bing for my search engine from here on out.

I haven’t used google for a year now. Ixquick is a really good, privacy friendly search engine.

I’m done with Google.

Their spying, their mining operation disguised as an Operating System (don’t care that it’s based on Linux), their immersion in Politically Correct politics.

Using Bing right now, another from another pro-sodom company. Don’t know what their privacy rules are, though.

Wish we had more conservatives involved in things like this.

They might as well try DDoS’ing google.com over a dial-up.

1.) It's not going to happen (ever).

2.) The Google campaign must be driving the Muzzies nuts!

I think the AFA tries their best to rally social conservatives but alas, their numbers and influence in this case will likely not make a dent. Even if Google were to lose some numbers, the vast global influence of the banner they are flying for “legalizing love” will have consequences.

I think the event of raising the ire of Muslims around the globe will be more telling. Sometimes when a campaign has reached its height, it brings on its own collapse. Globally, we are headed for a darker time, and this gay agenda has its roots in a more prosperous and peaceful (relatively) era.

The psalm and the picture are very apt.
A picture like that reveals the vast difference in the pursuit of “equality” of this agenda and that of the black civil rights movement of the ‘60s. Something very different at work here.

I’ve used Bing for a long time now. No need for Google.

I use Dogpile, which is a meta-search engine that calls Google, among others. At least it’s not a direct hit for Google.

Google's ambitious global campaign seeks to obtain equality for gays in over 40 countries where it has its offices. One of its main targets is Singapore: The city-state criminalizes any homosexual sex. [Section 377A of the Penal Code states, “Any male person who, in public or private, commits, or abets the commission of, or procures or attempts to procure the commission by any male person of, any act of gross indecency with another male person, shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to 2 years.”]

Well, someone in the youtube comments had pointed this out - but they are saying that it was not AFA, but RightWing Watch which uploaded it to youtube. I guess if AFA is going to attempt a Google boycott which is in any way effective, they are going to need a list of all venues owned and operated by the giant Google.

Can someone recommend an conservative alternative to gmail?

My computer says the security certificate for Ixquick is not valid. It recommends not using the site.

I got the same thing with IXQUICK - it is upsetting that Google is so prominent and the leader of SEO. Thus does it join the rainbow pride global agenda and wages this campaign with confidence.
