How do YOU feel about companies “promoting homosexuality” ? Tell the AFA!

Actu­al­ly, the don’t want to know how you feel. They want a very care­ful­ly select­ed group of peo­ple to answer their loaded ques­tions as desired, so they can claim, as usu­al, that they did research that showed that “every­body” hates queers.

They ask:

Should cor­po­ra­tions be pro­mot­ing homo­sex­u­al­i­ty?

Sev­er­al cor­po­ra­tions are now sup­port­ing the homo­sex­u­al agen­da. These com­pa­nies have been con­vinced by homo­sex­u­al activists and the main­stream media that in order to be “fair and tolerant,” com­pa­nies must make spe­cial rules for homo­sex­u­als and pro­vide com­pa­ny mon­ey and resources to help pro­mote their lifestyle. Many com­pa­nies, at the urg­ing of these groups, have also begun to sup­port same-sex mar­riage.

What they’re ask­ing about isn’t “pro­mot­ing homo­sex­u­al­i­ty” at all. Have you ever actu­al­ly encoun­tered any­one pro­mot­ing het­ero­sex­u­al­i­ty or bisex­u­al­i­ty? No? Me nei­ther. Actu­al­ly, the only pro­mot­ing I know about is all that pres­sure to be het­ero­sex­u­al. Methinks the AFA doth protest too much.

What they object to is domes­tic part­ner­ship ben­e­fits. They object to the use of match­ing funds for pro­grams like Planned Par­ent­hood or any oth­er orga­ni­za­tion that doesn’t agree with the rad­i­cal right’s agen­da. That’s what they mean when they say “pro­mot­ing homo­sex­u­al­i­ty.

So let’s reframe this a lit­tle more accu­rate­ly.

Do you believe that com­pa­nies should offer the same ben­e­fits to all employ­ees, with­out regard to their sex­u­al pref­er­ence or ori­en­ta­tion? Would you be more to do busi­ness with a com­pa­ny that treats all of its employ­ees fair­ly? Less like­ly to do busi­ness with them? Would it not mat­ter to you at all?

Now go vote: http://​www​.afa​.net/​p​e​t​i​t​i​o​n​s​/​b​u​s​i​n​e​s​s​e​s​/​b​u​s​i​n​e​s​s​e​s​.​asp

As Stre­ga point­ed out in a com­ment on my Live­Jour­nal, once again the AFA isn’t con­duct­ing actu­al research, or even a real sur­vey. The num­bers on the page nev­er change, no mat­ter how many peo­ple vote. They’ve set up a nice lit­tle graph­ic show­ing how they’d like the num­bers to come out in their fan­ta­sy world.
