For God's sake, don't shop at Home Depot!!

The American Family Association [AFA] has called for all the good Christians to boycott Home Depot for their "financial and corporate support to open displays of homosexual activism on main streets." This radical Christian group is 'asking' the company to remain neutral in the "culture war" between homosexuals and the religious. First of all, culture war? Why does everything that comes out of a right-wingers mouth have to be something about some sort of war? This is much more about the rights of others and taking away the freedoms of homosexual Americans. The website [link above] has a petition for the Christians to sign and according to Secular News Daily, has received over 500,000 signatures. 

 

AFA has met with the head of Home Depot and the company is not backing down on their stance for human rights. AFA's Buddy Smith reported the action on a radio show and a clip aired via YouTube.

 

 

 

This is just crazy. Homosexuals are in the "clasp of the devil" Really? People who talk like this remind me of Bobby Bucher's lovely mother. . 

 

 

 

 

These people are absolutely NUTS! By the way, I used to shop at Lowe's because it's slightly closer to my house than Home Depot. Now, I will drive the extra mile to support this company and their stance for human rights. Counter-Boycott, bitches.

I just went ahead and 'liked' all of these companies on Facebook: Home Depot, Ford, Pepsi, Campbell Soup Company, McDonald's and Hallmark

Honestly this is laughable. Going after Home Depot now? why? because legally and politically they have long lost their cause. This is just pathetic on the part of the AFA and in the eyes of anyone with a brain makes them an easy target for mockery. I mean What's next Chuck E Cheese?

Pathetic.

There's actually a nice list of LGBT-friendly and supportive businesses somewhere on http://www.hrc.org/ . I make sure to use Home Depot for exactly this reason. I love businesses who care enough to actively support these causes.

While supporting human rights is to be commended I'm not sure corporations/companies need to get on this human sexuality bandwagon. Staying neutral makes more sense. You don't piss anyone off then. While I don't consider myself a homophobe I am not entirely comfortable around them. Working as a correctional officer in a state prison unfortunately has skewed my feelings. I won't get into what I saw. Having said that I am all for treating anyone fairly and without bias no matter their individual sexual persuasion. Legislation should not attempt to control their actions.

I personally have a "hard on" for the megastores. Their product line is almost 90 percent CHINESE. Support America and visit the Mom & Pop hardware stores. Although they sell some crap from China also.

I'm not a big Home Depot fan, but I do applaud them for not backing down in the face of religious insanity. Methinks I'll swing by there, armed with anti-religion tracts, and pick up a new houseplant.

As long as you know what you need and don't need a sales droid Home Depot is just fine.

As for homosexuals, I have no problem with how anyone lives their life, as long as it hurts no one else or doesn't effect me.  No one can agree with everything after all...

I think I can agree with pretty much everyone that Home Depot should be applauded. It's great to see companies come out against bigotry and hatred.

@Flower- All well..I find that some of my family [specially my mother] can be the 'run-away' type of Christian. They hold what they believe so dear but don't dare to discuss it or their own opinions. Sometimes, it's just fun to hear their side and learn about their views.
