Home Depot petitions delivered - see their response

June 6, 2011

On Thursday, June 3, American Family Association delivered 474,161 petition signatures to Home Depot chairman Frank Blake. AFA also addressed the board of directors and shareholders during their annual meeting.

AFA Vice-president Buddy Smith appealed to Chairman Blake to review Home Depot's extensive support for homosexual activism and direct the company toward neutrality in the culture war.

Chairman Blake quickly discounted the petitions by reaffirming Home Depot's commitment to dedicating corporate resources to groups who advocate gay marriage and the advancement of homosexuality and transgenderism.

In part, Chairman Blake said, "I hope all of our shareholders understand that we're a company that respects the diversity of our associates, our customers, and the communities where we do business." Listen to his full reply here. 

Home Depot is sponsoring "Southern Maine Pride" in Portland, Maine next weekend. Last year, Home Depot set up a Kid's Workshop booth at the event. Children were exposed to "drag queens," nudity, and other homosexual activities.

AFA is promoting a boycott of Home Depot until it agrees to remain neutral in the homosexual culture war.
