American Family Association Boycotts “Homo Depot”


If you’re planning on renovating your home and wonder where to buy your lumber, I recommend that you might give Home Depot a try. Why? Well, the company has a very pro-gay attitude, so much so that the American Family Association has pledged to boycott them, “Homo-Depot”.

Never heard of these guys? Here’s a short description from their website:

The AFA is a non-profit organization that advocates traditional family values and the reform of American culture “to reflect Biblical truth on which it was founded.”

That’s a pretty nice way to describe them. I would argue that my description, however, is a little more accurate:

The AFA is a non-profit organization that advocates bigotry and close-mindedness, and the erosion of American values of democracy and equal rights in order to reflect their Bronze Age book of mythology.

What specifically is Home Depot doing that so outrages these douchebags? The AFA objects to the fact that the company insurance plan covers sex change operations and offers extended insurance to same-sex partners, thereby promoting the “lifestyle” of homosexuality, rather than making these human beings feel ashamed of being gay.

You could argue the company is only trying to attract the immense purchasing power of gays (who tend to be well educated and middle class), but so what? In exchange for this pandering they are going above and beyond what other companies are doing, and that’s not something one should ignore. The AFA sure isn’t, and we shouldn’t either.

    Yeah, cog forbid someone break a misinterpretation of an ancient rule in order to do the right thing toward other people.

    I am unsure which family traditions they are talking about anyway. Family traditions change all the time but they seem to believe they don’t.

    I like your re-write better, too. Much more accurate.

    Isn’t it odd that people/groups who want to get back to “the good old days” of American life never seem to mention that those days included lynching, forced lobotomies, women’s inability to vote, child labor slavery, and a whole host of other gems?

    Keep up the good fight!

    Ahh, American values, the AFA forget that the actual current US is based upon religious freedom not on satisfying one single religious view, it’s sad when they believe so readily in a book without proof but then are so willing to state that the religious freedom the country is based on actually doesn’t matter to them. When an “American” association can be so anti-American, such irony that they can’t even realise.

    However on Home Depot’s application for employment they ask you weather you are a member of any sexual minority, they list them off and you have to choose one.

    Most companies these days provide benefits to same-sex couples. So when is the AFA going to boycot all of them?
