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 gave more than $5000 to help sponsor the 2004 Motor City Pride Weekend. They will again help sponsor the event. This year it will includeamong other thingsa homosexual commitment (marriage) ceremony. When you click on this link, you can then click on Commitment Ceremony on the green bar to see the planned homosexual Marriage. Read More (at link posted with thread)

Ford was the main sponsor of the London Mardi Gras event. Follow the link below to see some of the activity which Ford helped sponsor. Warning: Many will find these photos offensive. We include them only to show the type of activity Ford feels deserves their official sponsorship. Read More (at posted link)
Ford Motor executive praises the companys support for the homosexual community. Ian McAllister, CBE, chairman and managing director, Ford Motor Company Limited, had this to say about Fords support for the homosexual community. Ford has been supporting gay, lesbian and transgender events and charities for many years, and this year, Ford will be a main sponsor of the London Mardi Gras. We believe at Ford in helping a global society that is more open and tolerant, and one that values diversity. Our presence at the Mardi Gras underlines that philosophy. Read More (at posted link)
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)
Yes, I pray too for people to change. "With God all things are possible."
The Bible clearly states that homosexuality is wrong, even against nature, as you said. This country will keep going down the drain if more companies adopt policies like FORD is doing. They are determined to push their deviant lifestyle on the rest of the country---trying to get it to be accepted as "normal."
But I'm going with what God says, and He says it's wrong.
Found Orifice, Relish Diversity?
I had no idea either!
THANKS TO YOU
for the heads up!
I had no idea!
I'll pass this along.
"So what is the address of someone at Ford we can write to, to tell them we will no longer purchase their cars and trucks?"
Not to mention their product is of inferior quality to Chevy and most of the Japanese import line. Ford transmissions suck anymore.
Thanks for answering Plutarch's request!
Yeah - me.
The first year for the Mustang was '65.
Here are ALL their corporate sponsors:
Wow, I did not know this. It's a real eye opener.
I had no idea either.
I have been a devotee of Ford since I gave up on Japanese cars in the early 90's. I thought I was doing the right thing by making sure my car was at least 70% built in the US. (T-Bird from Michigan, Taurus from US "somewhere") but now I've got to rethink.
Personally, I have no problem with homosexuals. I work with too many of them to be overly judgmental, and many are excellent at what they do. For me, I beleive they are (for the greatest part) born that way. I know that may bring flames about bible verses and screeds about people who have "changed back" but that's just how I feel. Perhaps those that were predisposed to being gay don't walk right in the eyes of the Lord, but I can only find the strength to keep myself and my family barely treading on righteous ground. I wish them luck.
No, my problem is not with gays, it's with the "Gay Agenda". That's an entirely different thing. I have strong feelings against a form of sexuality becoming a political party. One that School teachers espouse to my young children as if it were something they should sign up for.
Like most things of victim status, they (groups like the one described) do not seek to be equal to anyone, but exhaulted for thier supposed superiority. That's where thier support for things like this leaves me out.
I guess I'll have to look at GM (that's all we have left)
If Ford is all about the gay agenda maybe they will make a car that is all tailpipe. And they did make a car called the "Probe."
GM's are junk status, Ford are just above, but hey don't let the facts get in the way of a good post...
I guess if I worked on the Ford ass-embly line, I'd have to think twice about bending over to get parts out of a bin. Somebody might want to "marry" me.
Ford: just another four letter word.
I wonder how their dealerships feel about Ford's activism?
GMC panders to them just like Ford
Don't forget the Ford Foundation.
Don't buy new ford vehicles.
And sell all your Ford shares.
This stinks. I really wanted to get a new Range Rover. Grrrrr. Since I won't buy American, my choices are getting limited.
Actually, '64 1/2. I had one. Mine had a 260 V-8 motor. The 1965 optional V-8 was a 289, which was a 260 block btw.
See post #36 - the "DaimlerChrysler Fund" is involved in this, too.
Maybe the Chinese auto industry will chip in, too - after they get a firm foothold here. (rotsa ruck with that, homos...)
I'm selling my stock today.... At a loss. And I'll never buy another Ford again. Enough of this cr@p.
Great link you posted. I hadn't heard of that site before.
Worth posting again:
I can't say how many times the mantra, "diversity is good for business", was used in my business. But diversity does not make a car design better, or a production line work faster. But donations to causes make the causes happy, and the opponents of those causes unhappy. I wonder what the Ford Motor Company is with respect to charting Boy Scout Troops?
IIRC the first Mustang came out in early '64. I remember that because a girl I worked with bought one of the 1st ones in our town. It could have been titled as a '65 model I suppose, but it was introduced much earlier than usual for that era.
This from HRC -- the same source that AFA is using for info on Ford. GM does gay advertising, gives to gay causes, offers domestic partner benefits, sponsors a gay employee group, and has mandatory diversity training. I think you'll have to look overseas if you really want to buy your next car from a manufacturer that isn't gay-friendly...

"...the first Mustang came out in early '64."
LOL - you are right. I think that a prototype was created for 1963, but the first production year was '64 1/2 (spring of 1964), however it was stamped as a '65.
On the Ford website (heritage section), is the statement:
" For purposes of clarity, it is useful to note that Ford never referred to Mustangs as '64' or '64 1/2' models. These designations are the work of collectors who seek to differentiate an early '65 from a late '65. That said, Ford made midstream changes throughout the model year.
Here's a link to the flash presentation containing that statement:
It is confusing, but everyone I've talked to, except real car buffs and collectors, call them '65s, which is why I referred to it as a '65. Hope that helps.
"I wonder if this guy is actually aware of Ford's radical homo agenda support..."
Good point. Toby doesn't seem like the kind of guy to support homosexual causes.
Maybe someone needs to phone him.......
"Actually, '64 1/2."
You're right, that's when the production year for that model Mustang started. However, they were designated as '65s. See my post # 89 for links to Ford's Heritage website & their official statement to that effect.
BTW, I had a '67 Candy Apple Red Mustang - my 1st brand new car. Wish I still had it now, LOL.
The first year for the Mustang was '65. LOL
LOL - great imagery.
My first brand new car was a '67 candy apple red Mustang - mmmm, what memories, heheh.
BTW, there are some companies that build replicas (&/or rebuild) the classics. One of my nephews has a '70 BOSS Mustang - Cobalt Blue - man, is she pretty. He really takes good care of it - won't even drive it in the rain (he sneaks his dad's 2005 T-Bird, heheh). He carries a soft cover in the trunk, so he can always protect it in inclement weather. His dad, (my brother), taught that boy right.
If thousands (millions?) of American citizens would respond like you suggested, things would get better.
It's probably too late to influence FORD and GM. But at least other corporations could be persuaded to NOT include these policies.
Wish we would see it all happen.....seems like Toby is man enough to do it---or is that just an "image"?
And what about the NASCAR fans? Surely if they only knew about FORD.......or maybe NASCAR fans just have only an "image" of patriotism too.
How about the exhaust intakes rather than outputs and is prone to getting rear-ended?
But after hearing this crap I am tempted to write them and tell them they've lost my business.
