Pro-gay dollars shouldn't go to anti-gay Fox News

Courage Campaign

Here's how it works: You pay Orbitz to help plan your trip. Orbitz uses your money to advertise on Fox News. Fox News uses the money to pay hosts Bill O'Reilly and Mike Huckabee to tell millions of Americans of the "dangers" of allowing gay people near children, and compare homosexuality to drug abuse and incest.

Tired of paying for the homophobes' favorite microphone? So am I.

Join Courage Campaign and Media Matters to tell Orbitz: stop using pro-gay dollars to advertise on anti-gay Fox News!

It was O'Reilly who warned that marriage equality could lead to nuptials with goats. It was regular Fox News guest Ann Coulter who said "I don't think there's anything offensive about any variation of faggy, faggotry, faggot, fag." It was Fox News who did its best to destroy repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" and who now is doing its best to keep the "Defense of Marriage Act" on the books. It was Fox News that led the smear campaign against Kevin Jennings, the man who started gay-straight alliances in schools and now serves as Obama's Assistant Deputy Secretary of Education.

Sign our petition. We'll deliver it to Orbitz personally.

Regular Fox News contributor and Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich said on Fox, "[T]here is a gay and secular fascism in this country that wants to impose its will on the rest of us." Rest assured Fox will be doing all it can to elect Gingrich and the rest of his friends to our nation's highest offices. The question is whether you'll be paying for it.

Thanks for all you do,

Adam Bink
