Companies remove ads from homosexual blog site

Two companies are expressing embarrassment for advertising their products on the blog of a militant homosexual activist who routinely bashes conservative Christians.

Borden Dairy and Quiznos both say they were unaware they were helping finance a blog that, during the presidential campaign, accused Alaska Governor Sarah Palin of having her first son out of wedlock and falsely claimed she forced rape victims to pay for rape kits.

Borden Cheese and fast-food franchise Quiznos recently purchased banner ads that appeared on Americablog.com, a site operated by homosexual Democratic political consultant John Aravosis, who is currently pressuring the Obama administration to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy.

Aravosis has frequently made inflammatory remarks about conservatives. He once referred to certain Republican congressmen as "GOP Nazis" and called evangelical Christians "America's Taliban."

Borden Dairy spokeswoman Janine Smiley says the company was completely unaware that it was advertising on Americablog.com.

"We do have a thorough process, though, that we have in place that has criteria set up for which sites that we'll advertise on," she notes. "And we also have a screening process, so we're not quite sure what happened there, and we're investigating and to [get] more information with regards to the buying network that purchases online advertising."

Quiznos says it, too, was unaware that its banner ads appeared on the homosexual activist's site. Quiznos spokeswoman Ellen Kramer says the restaurant "has taken steps to ensure the ad will be removed as soon as possible." She tells OneNewsNow: "While we do advertise on thousands of sites to reach a broad base of Quiznos fans, that particular site doesn't meet Quiznos' site requirements, and we have asked our media-buying agency to revisit those requirements immediately."

Other companies advertising on John Aravosis' blog include AT&T, Capital One, and Matrix Direct Insurance.
