And now this moment in futile consumer activism

by Jeremy Hooper

The American Family Association claims this:

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. [AFA]

Peter LaBarbera backs this:

Letter – Won’t Dine at Chili’s Due to Sponsorship of ‘Reprehensible’ Gay & Lesbian Task Force [AFTAH]


Meanwhile, The American Annals of 'Yea, Whatever, Keep Telling Yourself This is Effective' (3rd Ed.) keeps noting developments like this:

The Human Rights Campaign’s ninth annual Corporate Equality Index shows an unprecedented 337 major U.S. businesses earned the top rating of 100 percent, up from 305 last year [HRC]

An ever-growing number of employers, including the majority of Fortune 500 companies, further extend [domestic partner] benefits to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees and their families by including an employee's same-sex partner or spouse and the partner/spouse's children [HRC]

Appreciation appreciates. Bull**** markets never last.
