I just got my AAA renewal in the mail this month. It’s nearly 80.00 for a membership that includes my husband and myself and our two cars—but it doesn’t cover the restructuring of families.
According to Equality Florida, a homosexual activist organization, the American Automobile Association (AAA) has begun offering “Family Memberships” to homosexual couples, recognizing the homosexual couple as being “married.”
Apparently AAA fell under fire earlier this summer from three GLBT rights groups, Georgia Equality, Equality Florida, and the Tennessee Equality Project. In response to this pressure, AAA decided to change it’s policy, despite the fact that the vast majority of it’s customers believes that families should not be remanufactured in the GLBT image.
The old AAA policy was basically a don’t ask, don’t tell type deal, but that wasn’t enough for gay rights activists who are pushing for full societal acceptance. By threatening boycotts activists urge targeted businesses to do the heavy lifting for them, in spite of what the majority of companies and customers privately believe.
Thirty states have overwhelmingly voted to define marriage as being between one man and one woman. Unfortunately AAA’s political stance no longer reflects that of it’s consumer base. Instead, they are nudging societal consensus one notch further toward broken families and broken homes.
Over the past 7 or8 years that we’ve had AAA we’ve been pretty happy with it. Our cars break down probably once a year and it is reassuring to know that if I have an emergency out driving alone, that I can always call someone for help. However, with the new policy changes and the ripple effect changes like these have on societal acceptance, my family and I will be choosing our emergency auto coverage somewhere else (Check it out! It’s cheaper too!).
