On Boycotts...

I love reading Don Wildmon’s bigoted rants the way some people love reading Stephen King or Clive Barker. Every once in a while (more frequently prior to elections), I receive an e-mail from him that is so mindless in its hatred that I often forget how much damage this sort of asswipe can cause.

I’m also beginning to feel sorry for Procter and Gamble. For almost an entire century, P&G had as their logo a design that incorporated the moon and the stars. About 20 years ago, the zealots started a campaign condemning P&G for their obviously satanic symbol. At first P&G laughed it off, but after a couple years of a mildly successful boycott, they caved in and changed their logo.

Now the Zealots are at it again. I turn the following hunk of bandwidth over to Mr. Wildmon, unedited. This is in case you're having a hard time counting up to 51%.


Dear Michael,

Procter & Gamble, maker of Crest, Tide and Pampers, is the leading sponsor of two TV programs that continually push the homosexual agenda.

The sitcom “Will & Grace” regularly promotes homosexuality and explicit sex-talk with jokes about male and female genitalia, masturbation, oral sex and even anal sex. The series’ two male stars are both homosexual. From the beginning, the series has been about nothing but sex.

“Will & Grace” is the program that showed two men passionately kissing each other.

According to Broadcasting & Cable online magazine, P&G was the top sponsor of “Will & Grace” between September 2003 and February 2004. P&G spent an astonishing $8.2 in sponsorship of this program promoting the homosexual agenda. “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” depicts five homosexual men remaking the “cluttered, straight men of the world” so that they look, dress and act in the manner of the “cool” and, by implication, superior “gay” community. The program consistently seeks to validate and glorify the homosexual lifestyle.

Between September 2003 and February 2004, P&G spent $2,000,000 in sponsorship of this program promoting the homosexual agenda.

Remember that P&G pulled all their advertising support from Dr. Laura’s program after a complaint from the homosexual community. P&G will support programs that are pro-homosexual, but refuse to support programs that tell the truth about homosexuality!

Procter & Gamble has become a leading advocate for the homosexual lifestyle. For more information on P&G’s promotion of homosexuality, click here. http://www.pgboycott.com/promotion.asp

Please support the boycott of P&G, and ask others to do so.

2. Print out a Boycott Procter & Gamble petition and distribute among Sunday school and church members and with friends. Click here.

4. Call Chairman A.G. Lafley at 513-983-1100 and politely let him know that you are participating in the boycott and will ask others to do the same.

5. Help us spread the word by forwarding this to friends and family.

Don't need Pampers anymore (and also don't need them yet), but I'll be buying Crest for the foreseeable future.

Now I really wish you guys had finished "Sonic Disruptors." The way-out plot of that forgotten series is starting to look realistic these days.

I'm kind of amazed he is still up to these boycotts after getting his ass handed to him in court by Vinny Mac's WWE. Guess he just wants to find himself in court again.

Actually -- now the truth be told -- all but the last issue of Sonic Disruptors were written. We had the next issue (#8, I think?) completely finished, #9 was being inked, #10 was being penciled, and #11 had been written.

The story that the book was canceled because the artist was late was complete bullshit face-saving jive from some DC flunky. Once we put the book on a bimonthly schedule (actually, every 6 weeks) we were fine, deadline wise.

It was a great series.

So has Wildmon called for a tourism boycott of Canada yet, because of the marriage thing?

Trying to figure out a way to say what I think of him whilst remaining civil, and not doing too well at that,
