Awwwww...AFA...the victims once again...NOT!!!!!
This is just a big ploy by the AFA. They go to these stations and try to "buy" time to air their "program" and when they are denied they just turn around and say, "see we are being silenced! Why are they doing this to us? We just want to tell the truth. But they won't let us. Those "homosexual activist" are just trying to stop the truth from being told. See we told you so, now we have proof."
Now it seems that they are saying that WOOD-TV is "refusing" to air the program. They are in no way refusing. They made the offer of Saturday at 2 - 3pm and the AFA did not give any response. So it is the AFA that pulled the broadcast by not responding to WOOD-TVs offer. But it seems that the AFA and the ilk are leaving that little detail out. Isn't a half truth still a lie?
One other issue that I have is the fact that they are complaining about the disclaimers that run before and after their programs that do air. If you look at any infomercial on TV there is always a disclaimer. They are not being treated any differently than any other group or person out their that buys air time to show their programs. The station has every right to air or not air anything they wish. It is not silencing anyone. What if an Atheist group wanted to run an hour program on how there is not God. Or a Wiccan coven wanted to run an hour long program about witchcraft. You had better believe that the AFA would be the first ones out their protesting and boycotting those stations. Calling them every name in the book. They just seem to need to play the victim here once again. I applaude the station(s) that actually ran apologies before and after the airing.
They are just being a bunch of whiners. When I emailed the station, I couldn't get a call through, I asked them simply..."when will I be seeing an airing from the KKK or some anti-sametic group?" I also included some real truth for them about what the AFA is all about.
