Anti-Christian Bigot in Milwaukee: More
So what’s wrong with that?
In the first place he’s an anti-Christian and generally anti-religious bigot.
But he has First Amendment rights just like everybody else. (Those rights, we note, are not abridged if people demonstrate against him.)
The kicker is: American TV, the local furniture and electronics store is sponsoring him!
They want to sell stuff to Christians -- who after all are the overwhelming majority of the population in Wisconsin. So why are they supporting him?
From Badger Blogger, a suggestion:
Here’s my recommendation for anyone reading this who is truly offended that American would sponsor Maher:A poster at Badger Blogger also pointed out that WKLH Radio is also co-sponsoring Maher. In fact, the performance is advertised on the WKLH website.
On Monday, call the American TV corporate offices at (608) 271-1000 and ask to speak with company President Doug Ruehl. (Sounds like: “Rule”)
You will be directed to Doug Ruehl’s public relations assistant, who will explain to you that Mr. Ruehl does not accept direct phone calls, but they will offer to arrange a return call to you from Mr. Ruehl.
Explain to him that you are a previous customer, and that you are calling to express your displeasure over American TV’s sponsorship of the Maher appearance, and that you fear that this will prevent you from doing business with American TV and Appliance stores in the future.
They too appear not to mind insulting Christians -- and Muslims too.
The third sponsor is the Shepherd Express. Their core readership is about where Maher is, so it’s no surprise.
