Ford's decision to pull its ads from the gay media after its meeting with the American Family Association has provoked strong reaction from Autoblog readers and the public. Shortly after Ford's decision, another group, Focus on the Family, employed a similar tactic with Wells Fargo.

"Focus on the Family has elected to end its banking relationship with Wells Fargo, motivated primarily by the bank's ongoing efforts to advance the radical homosexual agenda. These efforts are in direct opposition to the underlying principles and purpose of Focus, and thus a decision of conscience had to be made, and a stand taken," said a statement on the Focus Web site.

Wells Fargo's decidingly different reaction illustrates this article's point found over at The Truth About Cars. Basically, silence and/or saying that things are "just business" are killers in the cut-throat world of corporate warfare. It will be interesting to see the long-term impact Ford's decision will have now it's out of the frying pan.
