I Didn’t Want Your Crummy Cars Anyway

A small Ford dealership in Mojave California has decided to appeal to their community’s Christian majority by telling everyone else to sit down & shut up. Keiffe and Sons Ford have been running to following ad on at least one local radio station:

But did you know that 86% of Americans say they believe in God? Since we all know that 86 out of every 100 of us are Christians, who believe in God, we at Keiffe & Sons Ford wonder why we don’t tell the other 14% to sit down and shut up. I guess maybe I just offended 14% of the people who are listening to this message. Well, if that is the case then I say that’s tough, this is America folks, it’s called free speech. None of us at Keiffe & Sons Ford are afraid to speak out. Keiffe & Sons Ford on Sierra Highway in Mojave and Rosamond, if we don’t see you today, by the grace of God, we’ll be here tomorrow.

Here’s a recording of the actual ad.

So far, Ford Motor Company doesn’t seem too concerned about their public image being tarnished. That might change if enough non-religious people call them (1-800-392-3673 between the hours of 8am and 5pm, local time, Monday through Friday. Hearing impaired callers with access to a TDD may contact us by calling 1-800-232-5952.) and express how this kind of advertising makes them feel. You could also call in to some of the local radio stations and express your concerns or build a little local news around it. Christians are very good at waving the ‘offended’ card in front of the news media’s face. Maybe we should try it.
