I just got an email update from the Log Cabin Republicans, and they included a few stock images of John Amaechi in it. After this whole Tony Dungy thing, one thing was conspicuously missing in these Amaechi shots. Check one of them out, and the cover of his book:
I also hopped on over to the HRC's webpage, the same HRC that Amaechi's working for now as the spokesperson for the Coming Out Project. Here's one of their stock photos:
Now, what's not in these photos? Could it be this?
It seems like the editor of the first photo that the LCR used actually went to some length not to use the Utah Jazz logo. It's almost seems like, even though John Amaechi is supporting something really great, the people he's working for know not to use a copywritten image in a way that would imply that the franchise endorses what they're doing. You know, so that they don't needlessly get on the Jazz's bad side.
Now let's look and see if the Indiana Family Institute took as much care as the LCR or the HRC did:
Oops! They didn't! It looks like the IFI is implying that the Colts franchise supports them! And it looks like Tony Dungy isn't making the same distinction between his real job and his fundraising! The Colts are sure going to take the IFI to the cleaners over this.... Or not.
I guess now anyone can use the Colts logo for whatever! I'm totally going to put the white horseshoe on the hand-calligraphied invitations to my next fisting orgy.
