The American Family Association Attacks 10-Year-Old Boy Will Phillips, His Parents, And Fayetteville Arkansas Mayor, For Supporting Northwest Arkansas Pride

Just how dispicable and low can the The American Family Association go?  VERY LOW!

Well the AFA’s Tim Wildmon has sent out an “Action Alert” lashing out at Fayetteville, Arkansas Mayor Lionel Jordan for issuing a proclamation in support of the Northwest Arkansas Pride Parade, and attacking 10-year-old Will Phillips who became a gay national hero for speaking out for rights for all and his parents for participating in the event.

Says the letter in the alert: ““Dear Mayor Jordan and Fayetteville City Council: I am shocked to learn that the city of Fayetteville is issuing a proclamation in support of the homosexual activist group, Northwest Arkansas Pride. It’s offensive enough to sensibilities that they are going to parade their deviant lifestyle on the streets of the city. It’s even more abhorrent that the city is supporting it, knowing very well that the organizers of this event are exploiting children to push their radical sexualizing event. I implore you to withdraw the proclamation and focus on issues that promote a healthy and safe lifestyle, rather than one that is risky and dangerous………It’s shameful that adults would abuse a brain-washed child in this way. He’s obviously just parroting the nonsense he’s been told by manipulative adults.For gay activists to trot out this child and make him the poster child for promoting unnatural sexual expression is a form of child abuse.”

“It’s shameful that adults would abuse a brain-washed child in this way. He’s obviously just parroting the nonsense he’s been told by manipulative adults.”??  Oh the irony of this coming from you Wildmon and the AFA.  IF Will Phillips and his Parents WERE Brainwashed Religious NUTZ of the AFA and were standing on a corner with “God hates Gays”.and yelling stuff like that with a Bullhorn that would be perfectly fine toWildmon he would JUST be Expressing his “Religious Freedoms”.Where was the AFA’s outraged Action Alert when the pro-Prop 8 campaign used children in their campaign? When a bored child who was at her teacher’s wedding, which her parents were attending as well, had her image manipulated and used as if she were the poster child for the ill effects of marriage equality.

So everyone take a second to write Fayetteville officials to (politely) express your support for Will Phillips, Mayor Jordan, and NW Arkansas Pride and lets counter the assholes at the AFA!
