Support Johnson & Johnson  
The American "Family" Association is getting its soiled granny panties in a twist over a Tylenol ad tastefully depicting (OMFG TEH HORROR) a gay couple. (So much for other people's families, eh? Blithering hypocrites.) Please call (1-800-962-5357, option 5 or 1-877-895-3665) or use the comment form to help drown out the bleating of the busybody bigots. I just sent a brief letter of support.

Comment sent.

Hopefully they won't be scared off, although somehow I doubt it.

Uh....is there a way to support them without supporting Tylenol itself? I sort of have issues with Tylenol after working at a mental hospital.

I would suggest calling the customer service number or looking for a more general comment form elsewhere. I just used the Tylenol form to make a general comment, figuring that they would understand that "Thanks for running gay-friendly ads" wasn't specifically about Tylenol. ^_^

Ugh, I've never understood why the "pro-family" types are so damned threatened by gay people. Why they insist on flipping their shit over a group of people that they outnumber several times over is just beyond my comprehension. It's the same thing with fundamentalist Christians and atheists: 75% of America is Christian. Maybe 10% is atheist. What are they so afraid of, anyway?

That the 10%'s having more fun than them?

I'm a little curious about your percentages--75% seems a bit high to me. Any numbers on what percentage are fundamentalist?

I get my stats from adherents.com, but I've heard similar statistics from the American press, such as USA Today and various news channels.

An NSRI and ARIS study conducted in 2001 puts the numbers as such:

76.5% Christian
15% Secular/Nonreligious/Agnostic/ Atheist

As far as Christian denominations go (2004 data):
25% Catholic
16% Baptist
2% pentacostal/Charismatic
1% Mormon
1% Church of Christ

So, only about 20% of Christians fall into fundamentalist-leaning denominations.
