I've Decided... I'm Going to the Depot This Weekend!

Calling all rational minded people:  Let's have a Support Home Depot Weekend!!!
Remember all the screams about yard signs and chikin graffiti? According to the American Family Association, vandalism is totally OK when it's their side doing it.

AFA was recently contacted by a Home Depot employee who says the boycott of Home Depot is being effective. "We have customers who come into our store and confront our store managers over the HD's support of Gay pride. The AFA is having an effect on HD." She also shared that many employees disagree with the company's pro-gay-marriage stand. In June, a "Gay Pride Month" poster (photo right) was put up in her breakroom. "HD is as committed as ever to the changing of laws in favor of same sex marriage. They had absolutely no empathy for those employees who voiced offense with the display. This was mandated by corporate directive. Therefore the display was torn down at least 2 times."

Ron thinks this store is is home away from his home. He loves home improvement stores and with us rebuilding our home, we spend a lot of money at this store. They have locked us up as GAY male customers. Ron and I believe in voting with our money, as little as we seem to have these days...any store, or restaurant that is anti-gay doesn't get our money. We do go to and spend in stores that are for equality of all people, including gay people. Hugs

Hello Randy
The company had no empathy with those who were offended? About as much empathy as the anonymous employee has with those who are discriminated against, seemingly. as with the graffiti, it's only 'wrong' if your opponents are doing it.

Love & best wishes

Hi Scottie;

I like that, 'voting with your dollars'. Very wise.

Hi Sammy;

Isn't it amazing that offense can be so one sided? That to ask for one to be treated equally could be so offensive?
I recently watched "The Hunger Games". Loved it. The offenses felt by those who were so incredibly wealthy towards those who truly feared starvation... it was fascinating. Worse, I hear it in my own country! "How dare they disturb my conscience demanding their human rights"...

go figure...
