Home Depot digs in, issues statement to AFA

January 23, 2012

Well, it looks like we got our hopes up only to have Home Depot knock them down.

Last week we reported that Home Depot appeared to be pulling back its support to homosexual activists. We spoke too soon. Immediately after we released our findings, Home Depot said it will continue to support homosexual activities.

Home Depot issued this email statement to AFA:

"We have never changed our commitment to diversity and inclusion of all people, and we have no intention of doing so. Nor have we changed our apron policy or the guidelines for our charitable giving." 

It now appears Home Depot is also breaking its own written policies.  

Home Depot's online policy states it will not sponsor "...festivals, dinners...fundraisers...," yet it sponsors gay pride festivals and Human Rights Campaign fundraising dinner events. 

Home Depot's official spokesperson told AFA that employees are not allowed to wear their orange aprons outside its stores. But according to gay supporter Jordan Humphrey of Illinois, in the first week of 2012, "over 30 orange aprons showed up in Champaign's new-years pride-fest."

Every homosexual organization Home Depot supports has as their top priority the legalization of homosexual marriage.
