Delusions of Power or Powerful Delusions?

From American Family Association's founder and chairman Don Wildmon:
The boycott of Ford Motor Company is working! Sales of automobiles made by Ford dropped 2% in May. This follows drops of 5% in March and 7% in April. When AFA began the boycott of Ford on March 13th, their stock was selling for $7.86 a share. As of Tuesday the stock had fallen to $6.68, a drop of $1.18 or 13%.
It is clear that Chairman Bill Ford is willing to take Ford into bankruptcy to appease a small group of homosexual leaders. As you and other AFA Online supporters forward information concerning Ford's promotion of the homosexual agenda, including homosexual marriage, the boycott will continue to grow.
You really think an anti-gay boycott that nobody knows about is causing Ford's sales to drop? I know you're not a big fan of facts or research, but American automaker production is at its lowest point in 10 years-- across the board. Maybe you think your followers don't read the newspaper, but most people are aware of this well-known shift in the marketplace:
Lower demand from year-ago for North American-built vehicles is the primary reason for the production slowdown.

Adding fuel to the fire are slowdowns for the market's two biggest auto makers, General Motors Corp. and Ford Motor Co. Both have been particularly hard hit by the market shift away from midsize SUVs. To shore up profit margins, both have cut back on incentive spending and sales to rental fleets.
That's funny. In an article that explains why American automakers are hurting right now it says nothing at all about your boycott. Wait a sec, are you boycotting the American stock market in general? Is that the real reason it's tanking right now?

Seriuosly, it's really not very Christian of you to misrepresent your power and influence and boldly lie to your sheeple like that. WWJD?

P.S. By the way, the text is from an e-mail from Don Wildmon and it isn't posted on their site yet. If you want me to forward you a copy, please just ask.
