Not much attention has been paid to the fact that the American Family Associationâ€™s boycott of Ford for taking a pro-gay rights position has contributed to the automakerâ€™s mounting financial woes, contends Tom Blumer of BizzyBlog. With the company on the brink, some shareholders are asking whether political correctness is worth the price.
For those who doubt the AFA boycottâ€™s relevance, consider this â€” Assuming there are 17 million boycott participants, and that only 1/2 of 1% of them (85,000) had bought a Ford vehicle during the fourth quarter, the margin earned on those additional sales (assuming a product mix and incremental profit margins before fixed costs consistent with those identified at this July 2007 Forbes article on the auto industry) would have turned that $620 million fourth-quarter loss from continuing operations into a $63 million gain. Thatâ€™s an awfully high price to pay for...
Ok seriously, do you expect people to ride bikes on the basis of their someones personal stances. What if CEOs of stores begin contributing alot to the "gay agenda", are we to stop buying at the store???? c' on now.
Trying to "christianize" this nation is going against scriptures end times predictions, where what is good will be bad and bad will be good. Don't try to reverse God's Master plan, but be steady in prcolaiming the Gospel that saved us from our sinful chains that kept us slave to this world and ways. Let us rejoice in who Christ is and what He has done and will do. We need to proclaim the Gospel not our own thoughts on subjects, like homosexuality.
From my experience, when you buy a Ford, you might as well pull it directly from the showroom around to the service department and leave it because that's where it's going to be most of the time anyway.
I bought my wife a new Taurus in 2004 and it STAYED at the dealership for service. I was so glad when she finally totaled it (but I'm glad she wasn't hurt, of course).
If they are going to sell that junk they make to anybody it might as well be to sodomites.
Not even considering the pro-sodomy efforts of Ford, people avoid them because they just make very bad vehicles. Consumers should and will not buy Ford because they typically don't like to waste money.
