Congrats, ExxonMobil—you've pleased one of America's most discriminatory organizations

by Jeremy Hooper

ExxonMobil has once again rejected basic nondiscrimination protections for LGBT employees. This is music to the ears of a man who likes to claim that gay people are "pawns of the enemy":

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins released the following statement commending [Exxon] shareholders for rejecting the resolution by a 4 to 1 margin:

"While other businesses drift away from their principles or capitulate under pressure, Exxon is putting its stock in something other than political correctness. For the 14th straight year, shareholders voted to maintain their reputation as a company that upholds the commonsense principle that managers should be able to determine what conduct contributes to and what conduct detracts from the effective performance of an employee's duties.

"The four to one margin against the resolution is a strong indication that the homosexual community's agenda is not resonating beyond the most liberal states. Exxon is setting a good example for other businesses who think promoting extreme political views is the only away to avoid the strong arm tactics of far left special interests," concluded Perkins. [

I'll continue to get my gas elsewhere. The ExxonMobil supporters and allies might be fiery, but I don't have to give them more fuel.
