Tell Office Depot: Leave our kids alone!

July 20, 2012

Dear ##FirstName[AFA Supporter]##,

Office Depot is guaranteeing $1 million to help indoctrinate your children that they are born "gay."

This week, Office Depot announced it is teaming up with recording artist Lady Gaga to push the homosexual agenda in public schools by encouraging our children to believe "gay" people are "Born This Way."

To help spread the message, Office Depot and Gaga's Born This Way Foundation have created several special, limited-edition products for back-to-school this year. Office Depot is donating 25% of the sale of each item back to the promotion of homosexuality, with a guaranteed payout of $1 million.

The truth is, there is zero credible evidence that people are born "gay." Homosexuality is a poor and dangerous choice, and has been proven to lead to a litany of health hazards to not only the individuals but also society as a whole.

Office Depot is attempting to attract children to it by the deceiving title "Empowering Youth". That is horribly irresponsible and will ultimately lead children to a higher chance of becoming victims to alcohol and drug abuse, depression and even suicide.

TAKE ACTION

  1. Tell Office Depot to "Leave our kids alone!" by sending an email message to Chairman Neil Austrian today.

    Using your email client, copy and past the sample message below (or write your own) and send it to the following Office Depot executives:
    Chairman Neil Austrian neil.austrian@officedepot.com
    President Kevin Peters kevin.peters@officedepot.com
    Chief Marketing Officer Robert Moore robert.moore@officedepot.com
    Kathy Campbell, Senior Customer Advocate kathy.campbell@officedepot.com

  2. Want to call them? The corporate office number is 561-438-4800.
  3. Plan to do your back-to-school shopping at somewhere other than Office Depot.
  4. If you own or operate a business, cancel your account and take your business elsewhere.

Sample message:

Office Depot's support for the "Born this way" campaign is terribly irresponsible.

There is zero credible evidence that people are born gay. Homosexuality is a poor and dangerous choice, and has been proven to lead to a litany of health hazards to not only the individuals but also society as a whole.

By backing this social agenda, Office Depot is deceiving our nation's young people into accepting a lifestyle that has proven to increase their chances of becoming victims to alcohol and drug abuse, depression and even suicide.

I urge Office Depot to drop this campaign and leave the raising of children to their parents.
