    The Human Rights Campaign Foundation gave Obama Advisor Warren Buffet's Berkshire Hathaway Company a score of "0" on the adoption of inclusive policies, practices and benefits for LGBT employees.

    Warren Buffet is the largest supporter of Planned Parenthood, an organization started by Margaret Sanger to reduce the black population.

    Black lives matter. Who kills more blacks than anyone else: Planned Parenthood.

    That's a pity, I really like Cracker Barrel's chicken and dumplings (probably really bad for me, but it's delicious). They won't get my business again until they mend their ways. They certainly won't notice the loss of my meager custom, but it's a point of principle. If they don't value my rights, then they don't get my money.

    I don't shop at Walmart anyway, but this is another reason to stay away.

    Buffett was clear: "Certainly, our managers know how I feel. I am 100 percent for full rights, in every respect, for gays and lesbians."

    In 1946, Sanger wrote about the importance of giving "Negro" parents a choice in how many children they would have.

    "The Negro race has reached a place in its history when every possible effort should be made to have every Negro child count as a valuable contribution to the future of America," she wrote. "Negro parents, like all parents, must create the next generation from strength, not from weakness; from health, not from despair."

    Her attitude toward African-Americans can certainly be viewed as paternalistic, but there is no evidence she subscribed to the more racist ideas of the time or that she coerced black women into using birth control. In fact, for her time, as the Washington Post noted, "she would likely be considered to have advanced views on race relations."

    I am not privileged to know Warren Buffet's thoughts on gay employees, except I know he has stated that he believes in equality for gay people. But the company Berkshire Hathaway has very few employees, and considering Buffet's public statements, I do not believe that Berjkshire discriminates against gays. Berkshire Hathaway owns hundreds of independent companies, and exerts almost no control over how they are managed.

    Thank dog that Buffet and many others support planned parenthood. Planned parenthood doesn't "kill" anyone - never has. It provides pretty much free pregnancy and contraception services to poor women everywhere, and provides abortions, where they can, to women who request them.

    So you don't believe in womens's rights? Good for you. Then how much different are you from the bigot who doesn't believe in rights for gays?

    We don't need to include the gender bending radicals because they have already done very grave damage to the image of the GLB community with their obnoxious, garish, weird behavior. It is time to excommunicate these transgender wackos out of our community once and for all or the problems of homophobia will never die out.

    WE DO include them. PEOPLE are PEOPLE, equal in all ways regardless of visual differences or the personal choices they make in THEIR lives that affect no one else.

    Dont give that people are people hyperbole, these gender bending radicals do not belong under our umbrella and you have no legitimate right wanting to include them because gays and lesbians have nothing in common with them. These trannies make all of us look bad. Let them fend for themselves like all other minority groups did in the past.

    On this list I've only bought from the Christian-recommended Interstate Batteries in the past. I can easily drop them. I only need a car battery every 3 or 4 years.

    On the Christian disapproved list I already deal with Apple, AT&T, and DirecTV (now owned by AT&T). I suppose I also buy Unilever products, they have like a thousand household goods, I'd have to check the label fine print to know.

    My preferred reference is HRC's list of company ratings. Which I really do follow. Not a boycott thing, but I'd rather buy from those who help me, rather than hurt me. And the HRC gay "help me" list has got everything I need or want. So why help underwrite the homophobes?

    Sure they do. They are socially-attacked human beings who are seeking acceptance--just like "gays". To MANY "straight" people, ALL "gays" are equally "gender-bending".
