Recently, the American Family Association (AFA) presented Home Depot’s board of directors with AFA’s demand that they stop funding gay pride events and other events that promote tolerance and diversity.
The AFA had a petition with about 500,000 signatures from people who have vowed to boycott the store unless it joins them in their campaign against gay people.
Home Depot responded with a resounding “No Way!”
Home Depot Chairman Frank Blake told the AFA to take a hike, stated that Home Depot was proud of its support for diversity, and that’s that.
Like all big box stores, Home Depot isn’t without its problems, but today, they’ve shown some real backbone.
Click here to sign our petition to say THANK YOU to Home Depot Chairman Frank Blake for taking this strong stand.
And then watch this video, where you can hear American Family Association’s Buddy Smith describe gays as being “in the clasp of Satan.”
