The (far-)right tool for screwing gay soldiers: Go to AFA, not Home Depot

by Jeremy Hooper

Considering all credible polls show Americans supporting Don't Ask Don't Tell repeal by somewhere in the ballpark of 60-70%, we're thinking the American Family Association might want to reconsider its strategy here:


The nation's largest homosexual activist group, Human Rights Campaign (HRC), has just released its "2011 Guide to companies, products and services that support lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender workplace inclusion."

The Home Depot is listed as a Top 20 national retailer for promoting homosexuality by placing in HRC's "highest workplace equality score" category.
...
The HRC was one of the foremost advocates in pushing for repeal of the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy last month. In fact, Senator Joe Lieberman said "the repeal would not have happened without...the Human Rights Campaign."

Did you catch that? Homosexuals can now bring their lifestyle into military service because of HRC's efforts, and The Home Depot says it "is proud to support HRC's efforts."

This is a clear signal that The Home Depot supports repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" and allowing "out and proud" homosexuals to serve in our nation's military.

Gee, what next, AFA -- gonna warn us that Home Depot also believes females are allowed in parts of the house other than the kitchen?
