In less than three weeks, 131,000 people have signed an
online pledge to boycott The Home Depot until it agrees to remain neutral in
the homosexual culture war. The pledge
is posted at www.boycottthehomedepot.com.

marriage and the agenda of many gay activist groups to redefine
AFA President Tim Wildmon said, "The Home Depot has
said it is committed to advancing homosexuality in the public square and will
continue to do so, even if it goes against good business practices."
The Home Depot has
sponsored multiple gay pride parades and festivals by sending representatives
and employees as participants in the events.
"Every person that signs the boycott pledge represents
more than just one lost customer,” Wildmon said. “Each one represents an entire household who
will take its home improvement business elsewhere. The Home Depot stands to
lose its shareholders a lot of money, because it has lost the focus on its
primary business purpose."
