HRC says Home Depot 'secret weapon' in passing New York's gay marriage law
June 28, 2011
The nation's largest pro-homosexual activist group, Human Rights Campaign (HRC), credited Home Depot for helping it pass gay marriage in New York State last week.
Calling it the "most aggressive state legislative advocacy campaign ever," HRC it pumped more than $1 million into the effort. Just after the gay marriage bill passed, HRC issued an email asking "What was the secret weapon behind this incredible achievement?" It went on to say that "a group of dedicated HRC Partners who fueled the fight for marriage equality by providing the resources."
Home Depot is one of those HRC "partners." HRC's secret weapon in passing gay marriage was Home Depot! Home Depot's own website says it "is honored to say we support" HRC and other pro-gay marriage groups.
Over one-half million people have signed a pledge to boycott The Home Depot until it agrees to remain neutral in the culture and political war over homosexual marriage.
