    considering the high population of lgbt works at homo depot, i think their quest to get home depot to stop supporting gays might backfire

    American Family Association is going to burn so many bridges that even their own children will disown them by age 18.

    don't people have better things to do? I don't even know any christians that get riled up against causes like this... the ones I know do a lot of really great charity work and its a shame that a few fundamentalists tarnish the name

    YEAH!!!


    Latest letter from the AFA

    [quote]


    For several years, The Home Depot has given its financial and corporate support to open displays of homosexual activism on main streets in America's towns. And, it says it will continue to do so!

    "At the end of the day here, we're not going to...forbid our associates to be involved in these pride festivals in any way." - Stephen Holmes, company spokesman. (Note: The associates participating in these parades were clearly doing so as representatives of the company.)

    Rejecting several requests by AFA to remain neutral in the culture war, The Home Depot has chosen to sponsor and participate in numerous gay pride parades and festivals. Most grievous is The Home Depot's deliberately exposing small children to lascivious displays of sexual conduct by homosexuals and cross-dressers, which are a common occurrence at these events.

    The goal of every homosexual organization supported by The Home Depot is to get homosexual marriage legalized. BoycottTheHomeDepot provides just a glimpse of how broad its support for the homosexual movement is. The Home Depot says it is committed to furthering the homosexual agenda.
    "The bottom line is, it (remaining neutral) just runs counter to our inclusive culture...and that's where we stand." - Stephen Holmes, company spokesman.

    See it for yourself. Photos at BoycottTheHomeDepot.com, taken during recent homosexual events sponsored by The Home Depot, show:
    Children being encouraged to visit gay sex websites.
    Employees using company property to push gay marriage.
    The Home Depot employees riding and marching in homosexual parades.

    TAKE ACTION
    1. Sign the Boycott Pledge at BoycottTheHomeDepot.com.
    2. Call your local store manager. Let him know that you will not be shopping in his store until the company stops supporting the homosexual agenda. You can find his number here. (click "Store Finder").
    3. Print the paper petition and distribute it at Sunday School and church.
    4. Extremely important! Post this alert to your facebook page (link above) and encourage others to join the boycott!
    It is very important that you forward this alert to your friends and family members.

    Sincerely,



    Tim Wildmon, President
    American Family Association

    AFA is sending out more email blasts to boycott Home Depot:

    [quote]
    The Home Depot's own website shows it embraces the spread of homosexuality, including gay marriage.

    [/quote]

    They make it sound like we are some kind of disease or something that you can catch.

    [quote]
    On its website, The Home Depot states it "is honored to say we support the following diversity-oriented organizations:" It goes on to list at least three groups which radically support the homosexual marriage agenda in America - The Human Rights Campaign, Out and Equal Workplace Advocates and Diversity Best Practices.
    That's not all!
    The Home Depot sanctions its very own homosexual employee group, which receives financial backing by the company, The Home Depot Pride https://careers.homedepot.com/cg/content.do?p=diversity (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender) employee group. The Home Depot marches in numerous gay pride parades and sets up Kids Workshops at gay pride festival events each year (more photos and list of events are available at www.boycottthehomedepot.com).
    And there is more...
    The Home Depot responded to an annual survey by the Human Rights Campaign. Here's what the company offers:
    - Full health insurance benefits to homosexual employees and "partners." The Home Depot recognizes two homosexual men who sleep together as "married."
    - Insurance for complete sex-change operations.
    - Requires some employees to attend diversity (homosexual acceptance) training.
    TAKE ACTION

    Oh gesh....the hate group, AFA, have 500,000 that have pledged to boycott Home Depot for supporting the GLBT community


    [quote]
    Boycott growing: 500,000 pledge to boycott The Home Depot

    Over one-half million people have signed a pledge to boycott The Home Depot until it agrees to remain neutral in the culture and political war over homosexual marriage.
    As a financial backer, The Home Depot has stated it "is proud to support" the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) effort to force the legalization of homosexual marriage across America.
    In a February 17, 2011 announcement, HRC notes that it most recently:
    - Helped gather support for marriage equality bill in Maryland;
    - Sponsored Marriage Equality Day in Albany, New York;
    - Pushed for final passage of Hawaii civil unions bill;
    - Stood up to Christian-owned Chick-fil-A for supporting a traditional marriage seminar;
    - Fought a constitutional amendment that would ban same-sex couples from marrying in Wyoming
    The Home Depot's support made all of these things possible. That's because The Home Depot is taking profits made from your purchases to push the homosexual agenda.
    Join over 500,000 people who have signed the boycott pledge! AFA will personally deliver the boycott pledges to The Home Depot's board of directors.

    According to someone that used to work at a CBS affiliate, they found out that the AFA has a habit of signing up people for all of their web sites (and they have several) and when you sign your name on one, it automatically signs them on their others. So one person is signing again and again automatically. That answers how they were able to get over 500k signatures....they are so dishonest.

    I'm pleased.
    It's not called Homo Depot for nothing.

    AFA has to bitch about something, to show their supporters that they're still around.
    Can the supporters of these hate groups be rounded up for (re)education?

    I was personally in that parade in 2010 with them, I was part of a Bank Of America group.
    The amount of support from that city alone is amazing and it sickens me that people are trying to destroy that.

    There are three reasons to go to Home Depot: light bulbs, Amaryllis bulbs, and hot bulbous men.

    Well, I dunno. When I lived in Fargo, North Dakota, the Senior Assistant Store Manager of the brand new Lowe's there was a Lesbian, who lived 2 doors down from us in our townhouse complex. My partner were friends with her & her partner, and our first Thanksgiving dinner was at their place, along with a lot of our gay & lesbian friends.

    She told me Lowe's was very gay-friendly. Later she was reassigned away to the Chicago area, to manage and "fix" an existing store there that had problems. She was one tough dyke, and was apparently one of Lowe's "troubleshooters" for new plus existing stores that needed correction. I would therefore also look at the GLBT record for Lowe's.

    Well I as a pure homosexual, one of the real gay, do not support everything heterosexual, so I don't expect them to support everything to do with the gay agenda; like same sex marriage. I have a few friends who have no issues with one being a poofter, yet same sex marriage is not on their political agenda. This does not mean for one moment they are anti gay, just a diffrent political agenda; many of them do vote for family issues; and that fine with me too, because it is their vote to do as they wish, as is mine.

    actually, lowe's has a good record for supporting glbt issues. like home depot, they know that the 'queer dollar' is just as good, if not better, than the 'straight dollar'. they know where their target market is and companies are beginning to realize it. finally.

    The hate group, the AFA, continues to go after Home Depot.

    Home Depot has added "Out and Equal Workplace Advocates" http://www.outandequal.org/ to their list of organizations that they support. https://careers.homedepot.com/cg/content.do?p=divorgs

    Here is a copy of their most recent email from the hate group, the AFA:
    [QUOTE]

    Home Depot's website now states the company's support for "Out and Equal Workplace Advocates," a gay political activist organization heavily promoting legalization of gay marriage and gays in the military, and celebrating activities such as Transgender Remembrance Day.

    AFA has repeatedly asked The Home Depot to remain neutral in the culture wars, but the company has continued to promote the homosexual agenda.

    On March 29, AFA invited The Home Depot to meet with AFA to discuss our concerns. They did not respond.

    NEW! To help promote the boycott, AFA has produced the AFA Pass Along Sheet.
    http://action.afa.net/uploadedFiles/Activism/National_Activism/Home_Depot_passalongsheet.pdf
    Please print copies of this sheet and share them with your neighbors, friends and co-workers. Encourage them to join the boycott of The Home Depot.
    TAKE ACTION
    1. If you have not done so, sign the Boycott Pledge at BoycottTheHomeDepot.com.
    2. Print copies of the AFA Pass Along Sheet for distribution.
    3. Print the paper petition and distribute it at Sunday school and church.
    4. Let The Home Depot know how much money they are losing. Each time you make a purchase at a competitor store, call The Home Depot at 1-800-466-3337 to let them know how much you spent with their competitor

    They never stop....

    [QUOTE]
    Home Depot is having its annual shareholder meeting this week. Many shareholders are upset with Home Depot's sponsorship of numerous gay pride events and support for homosexual marriage.

    Shareholders will be addressing the board of directors personally this week and plan to make sure the board of directors know they need to end the boycott! But...they need YOUR support.

    Your local store manager is the closest personal contact you can have with the company. They are the "eyes and ears" of the company and can make sure your concerns get to the right people.

    TAKE ACTION
    Today, call your local Home Depot store and ask to speak to the manager. You can find the number to your local store here (click "Store Finder" at top of page) or in your local phone book.

    Politely let him know you are boycotting his store until the company agrees to remain neutral in the culture wars and stops supporting homosexuality.

    Sample call text:
    Hello, my name is ________. I'm calling to let you know that I will not be shopping at your Home Depot store until the company agrees to remain neutral in the culture war and stops supporting homosexual activist groups and activities.

    I know you do not make the decisions for the company and may not have a lot of influence on company decisions. However, since you represent the company in our community, I'm asking you to forward my message to your district manager or directly to the corporate office.
    The American Family Association has set up a special website if you would like more information on why I am boycotting your store. The website address is www.BoycottTheHomeDepot.com.

    Thank you for your time, and for listening to my concerns.
    It is very important that you forward this alert to your friends and family members and ask them to call too.

    Sincerely,

    Tim Wildmon, President
    American Family Association
