I thought this was an interesting email:
It appears that Home Depot, in response to AFA’s boycott, is silently dropping public support for the homosexual agenda. Here’s why.
- In 2009 and 2010, Home Depot sponsored and marched in at least 16 separate gay pride events. After the boycott began, Home Depot’s participation dropped to just four events in 2011.
- Home Depot has ordered its employees to stop wearing its highly recognized orange aprons to any homosexual-themed events.
- Home Depot’s philanthropy arm, The Home Depot Foundation, now prohibits grants to “festivals” and denies requests for workshop kits and aprons. These had shown up at homosexual events on a regular basis.
The homosexual groups have remained silent about Home Depot’s moves, fearful that other companies may follow Home Depot’s lead. Since the boycott began, not a single homosexual group has publicly supported Home Depot.
However, it could be that the homosexual groups have agreed with Home Depot to simply remain silent, continuing to get money from Home Depot but agreeing not to publicly acknowledge Home Depot’s support.
Over 600,000 people have pledged to boycott Home Depot. Those pledges have been delivered to Home Depot Chairman Frank Blake and the board of directors.
