The tide is turning. There is an ever growing number of companies that are throwing out support for Homosexual “Marriage”. It wasn’t too long ago that many companies wouldn’t dare to do this. In fact, I distinctly remember in 2004, just before Thanksgiving, Walmart had decided that it was going to kick-start the pro-homosexual “marriage” support. What occurred was a national boycott stating that many people would NOT go to either Sam’s Club, or Walmart during Black Friday.
Walmart immediately revoked its position.
Today, we have become so saturated with television shows, news reports, and a barrage of other media related entertainment promoting homosexual behavior that we have become more desensitized to it. Now a days, we have to worry about companies that actually take a stand and say that they are not going to condone the behavior, worry about being sued for “discrimination”, lose their jobs, or face boycotts on the other side of the table.
We as Christians and Catholics need to spend more time researching what companies are supporting. Why? When you make a purchase at a store, and that store then promotes an action that is not good, you are indirectly supporting that as well. You can’t use the excuse that you are not, because if a company ends up donating 5% of its profits to support homosexuality, when you make a purchase, you are paying for some of their profits. Say, they make $1.00 profit off of each item you pay for. You are paying 5 cents off of each item to support their “cause”.
We should spend more time looking for alternatives, i.e. companies that support traditional family values. Thus, I think its time that we start a list of companies who are supporting homosexual marriage. I will start lists as well for abortion and other hot button issues that go against morality and the common good. I will also create a list of companies who have taken a stand FOR morality and the common good. That list is for companies who donate to organizations that support the common good.
When a person or company is in support of something heretical, we need to stand up tall, and denounce the evil, not the person and correct them on why they are wrong.
I ask for you, the reader’s help. I can’t be everywhere at once, and since this will be an ongoing list, it’d be nice if you can comment on when you hear of companies supporting this or no longer supporting or what not.
So, without further ado. The boycott list:
