Headaches - Not Just for Straight People Anymore

The American Family Association is going after Johnson and Johnson for advertising Tylenol PM to gays via the magazine The Advocate.

NGLCC co-founder Justin Nelson put the religious right on notice that
the recent uproar surrounding the marketing of Tylenol PM to the LGBT
community would backfire and that religious conservative interest groups
have reached a new level of ignorance and intolerance. "I didn't know
headaches were only a straight thing," Nelson said tongue-in-cheek about
the latest tirade from the American Family Association (AFA).


If anything, I think they should be going after Johnson and Johnson to change their name to Johnson and Bush or something else. Anything else. Goodness! That name alone offends my sense of moral decency. It conjures up images of two well-trimmed Johnsons happily prancing together holding hands. Certainly not the sort of imagery that the AFA would condone.

    These are the people who are causing the hate crimes - like the one recently in Lakeland. A gay couple came home to find their place burned and horrid signs spray painted on the steps.
