What America Needs... an Anti Gay Phone Company

Posted by Frankie at 6/09/2005 03:33:00 PM

Coming to a courtesy call near you (if on a Republican conservative databases), the long distance provider "United American Technologies" based out of the great progressive state of Oklahoma is selling itself as a, "Christian-based telephone carrier." This long distance provider makes its calls by asking you to press “1” if you oppose gay marriage. One man kept getting these calls and decided to record them.

Starting in late December I began to get phone calls from what I thought was a phone company (United American Technologies) trying to get me to switch from my phone company to a Christian one that didn’t support gay marriage and pornography. It was so weird and creepy that I decided to record them. There are three calls. It turns out that they are from a non-profit that works with United American Technologies and calls people on their behalf. UAT then donates money to them. I think this non-profit stopped making these calls, but UAT still has many other organizations making the calls for them I believe. Though they claimed to donate 10% of their profits to ministries I think the money actually went into an Oklahoma Republican political campaign, but some of it may go to Churches and ministries, I’m not sure. The whole thing is confusing and spooky. But enjoy the calls. You can also read this article from the New York Sun for more information.

Listen to the calls here:
