KissTheSky saidIf you read the original article, what Graham's church is calling for is for their followers to boycott every company that has pro-gay policies.
To which I say, LET'S SEE YOU DO IT, MORONS.
Virtually every major company that makes every product now has non-discrimination policies that include LGBT employees. A recent BusinessWeek story estimated about 90% of the Fortune 500 companies.
There are so many companies that include sexual minorities in their advertising that I can't begin to count them.
So I say to America's angry anti-gay conservative bigots:
Stop threatening to check out of society and PLEASE DO IT.
Let's see you live without the internet, computers, cell phones, tv, cars, grocery stores, pharmaceuticals, airlines, electricity, etc.
Go live in the woods and eat dirt... you'll be doing the civilized members of our society a major favor by getting rid of yourselves.
I agree, we have been working on that since 2002, at least. Not sure how their religious boycott would go over on the fortune 500. BTW, Wells Fargo, always a part of our pride, and however crappy a bank they are have scored 100% for a while now. Maybe they can rely solely on hate corp like Koch
Corporate Equality Indexhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corporate_Equality_Index
Since 2002, the Corporate Equality Index has been published by the Human Rights Campaign. It was originally modeled after the Gay and Lesbian Values Index, a rating system that was designed by journalist Grant Lukenbill. When the HRC modified it, it became a 100-point system, as opposed to Grant's 10-point one. In its first year, the Corporate Equality Index awarded its 100 percent rating to 13 businesses. Each year, there has been an increase in the number of businesses that achieve this rating. In the 2011 index, 337 companies received the 100 percent rating. The criteria for the index has changed since its first publication. Beginning in 2006, transgender rights issues became more imperative to the index than they had previously been; consequently, the 2012 index will include more updated criteria regarding benefits of partnerships and transgender inclusivity
They ONLY cared cause of the $480 million they would have lost in federal contracts
Exxon adds LGBT protections to comply with federal lawhttp://www.bizjournals.com/houston/morning_call/2015/02/exxon-adds-lgbt-protections-to-corporate-policies.html
Exxon has faced criticism related to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues on multiple occasions. Although the company said in 2013 it would extend benefits to legally married same-sex couples in the U.S., Exxon still has one of the worst LGBT records among Fortune 500 companies
This wasn’t prompted by a change of principles or corporate values, it represents Exxon’s response to President Obama’s July 2014 executive order that prohibits federal contractors from discriminating against LGBT people,” Deena Fidas, director of the Human Rights Campaign’s Workplace Equality Program said in a statement. “Exxon had to include these explicit workplace protections or risk losing its federal contracts.”
