The AFA is waging war against Hilton Hotels for running an advertisement that depicts two men in bed together. The AFA, or American Family Association, is a an anti-LGBT group that pretends to care about families, but only if your family is only comprised solely of heterosexual people. The current president is Donald Trump affiliate Tim Wildmon.

Here is the advertisement in question. If you can believe it, it shows two men in one bed. And they are smiling and looking happy! How dare they.

The ad ran in the June 2016 issue of Travel + Leisure magazine. Here is what the AFA thinks about it according to their website:

Travel and Leisure isn't a gay-specific magazine sent directly to homosexual's homes. It's a widely distributed mainstream publication that can be found in many public places such as doctors' or auto repair waiting rooms.

If Hilton had advertised two men playing tennis, cards, or having lunch, that would have been reasonable. However, Hilton chose to make a cultural and social statement by purposely marketing the promotion of homosexuality to a large segment of the population who finds the idea of two men sleeping together unnatural and offensive.
