The two year activist campaign to hold right wing talk show host Rush Limbaugh accountable for spouting bigotry on public airwaves has resulted in nearly 3,000 businesses and organizations demanding that their ads not be played on the controversial radio program.
This mass exodus has opened the door to all manner of bottom feeders who are eager to take advantage of basement bargain ad rates.
The man who once boasted of his ability to command confiscatory ad rates now runs commercial breaks dominated by energy scams, pecker pills, shady identity protection software, and a number of fundamentalist religious organizations including a church whose pastor decapitated a Sunday School teacher for getting paint on his boots.

God Said Man Said is a non-profit website that posts articles and webcasts preaching a literal interpretation of the Bible, including the entire Old Testament.
The purpose of this web site is to prove scientifically, scholastically and pragmatically that the Bible is authored by the finger of God, is perfect in its entirety, and will hold all men accountable to God at a soon-coming judgment day.
Though some of what is posted on its website is harmless, including a plug for olive oil and the recommendation that mothers eschew baby formula for breast feeding, God Said Man Said's take on homosexuality is shocking to say the least:
Much conversation has been bantered about concerning what God has to say about homosexuality. And though homosexuality is becoming more mainstream and shown as acceptable through multimedia sources, God, your creator and mine, says otherwise. The Word of God is still very clear about the cause, the punishment (Yes, it says punishment.), and the solution for homosexuality. God said homosexuality is an abomination (His word for it). I’ll show you verses in the Bible where God says this. It also says God’s punishment for the act is death.
The group cites this Old Testament verse as evidence that homosexuals will pay the ultimate price for their abominable lifestyle:
If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
Any readers feeling nervous about this death sentence can rest easy. God Said Man Said outlines a Divine Pardon available to homosexuals who are willing to bathe in the blood of Jesus Christ:
God has made a way of escape for those who are bound therein. The way of escape is forgiveness, deliverance, and salvation through the cleansing blood of Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son.
And those of you considering the "I was born homosexual" defense? God Said Man Said ain't buying it:
Now THE RECORD. Are homosexuals born that way? The question arises concerning whether homosexuals are born homosexual, and if so, its cause is not placed on the individual but on genetics, and ultimately on God (for those who believe in God). This cause-shifting exercise is being effectively used (by Satan) throughout the homosexual community and their “straight” loved ones, to sanitize and normalize homosexual behavior. The Satanic purpose of this position is to mainstream this God-condemned act.
Airing ads for a crackpot organization that appears to be just a rung or two higher than Westboro Baptist Church is further evidence of the marginalization of Rush Limbaugh.
