Reality is these idiots don't have the brains or perseverance to boycott anything other than sex with their partners so they can cruse the net with one hand.:)

If they join NOM in its Microsoft boycott, and other right wing groups who are boycotting Apple, it will sure make avoiding Google a hell of a lot easier.

After the results of past right wing boycotts (eg. The Southern Baptist boycott of Disney caused their revenues to jump by 5%) I suspect major companies are BEGGING these lunatics to boycott them.

And really, how many members of the AFA are even smart enough to operate a computer?

I would liketo know the proposed date(s) of this boycott so that I can start a counter-demonstration... Google things you don't even need to Google just to give them extra support.

No.. homosexuals have a perpetual boycott against hypocrisy and prejudice; and so should you. Don't hang back with the brutes; it can only demean you.
