Big U.S. Companies You Might Not Know Are Religious

By Max Nisen | Business Insider

Talking about religion and politics can be dangerous among friends. It's doubly so for businesses.


That double-edged sword became crystal clear last year after Chick-fil-A's COO made comments about the chain's opposition to gay marriage. It sparked a massive backlash from the media, gay and lesbian couples, and even the mayor of Boston.

The controversy also helped the company shatter sales records after former Arkansas governor and Fox commentator Mike Huckabee organized a "Chick-fil-A appreciation day."

Many other big companies in America are also religious, including some that might surprise you.

Remember Servicemaster too, which includes Terminix, TruGreen, American Home Shield, ServiceMaster Clean, Merry Maids, Furniture Medic, AmeriSpec. Honoring God is generally a euphemism for hatred of atheists, homosexuals, and secular government.

"ServiceMaster was founded in Chicago in 1929 as a moth-proofing company by Marion E. Wade, a former minor league baseball player. Wade, who operated out of his home, had a strong personal faith and desire to honor God in all he did. Translating this into the marketplace, he viewed each individual employee and customer as being worthy of dignity and respect. Eventually, Wade’s vision shaped the company’s objectives: Honor God in All We Do; Help People Develop; Pursue Excellence; and Grow Profitably."
