Mayor Lionel Jordan of Fayetteville, Arkansas Basically Saya "F@*k Off" To The American Family Association Over Gay Pride

Mayor Lionel Jordan of Fayetteville, Arkansas is standing up to the bigoted bible thumping bullies at the American Family Association.  Fayettesville received around 300 emails yesterday as a result of an action alert from the American Family Association which asked the mayor to drop his support for the Gay Pride parade in which 10-year-old Will Phillips is to serve as Grand Marshall.

But Fayetteville Communication Director Lindsley Smith said Saturday’s activities will go on as scheduled. ‘The Mayor is still excited,’ said Smith. ‘Everything’s still on.’ Most of the messages included identical body copy which came pre-loaded in an online action form set up by the American Family Association. Nearly all of them began with the statement, ‘I am shocked to learn that the city of Fayetteville is issuing a proclamation in support of the homosexual activist group, Northwest Arkansas Pride.’ Smith said the majority of the emails were from non-Fayetteville residents. 

So in oither words…..FUCK YOU AFA!
