Boycott List of Companies Who Support Homosexual “Marriage”

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:

The Chick Fil A Debate

I always seem to be a day late and a dollar short whenever I comment on anything that’s going on within current events on this blog.

A lot of the times I take my time writing something, for starters, because I don’t have the time to write about it when it first comes out. Other times, I’d rather wait until I get all the facts and spend some time thinking about it and praying about it before I comment, as I hate to look like a fool¬†when I’m wrong. And other times I don’t write on something because everyone else seems to have a comment.

Without further ado, I’ll state my comments and thoughts on the latest Chick-fil-a controversy. However, I’m going to try something different this time. I’ll do my best to give a more thorough analysis of the events that have been occurring.

On July 17, in an interview with the Baptist Press, Chick-fil-a President Dan Cathy responded to the question, what his stance on homosexual “marriage” was. As a practicing Christian, he responded honestly, that he didn’t believe that homosexuals should marry.

As you have already heard, this caused a huge media firestorm surrounding Chick-fil-a being a “hate” organization and somehow wanting to eliminate all homosexuals. Not really sure how this conclusion came about as there was nothing said that would imply this, but this is how knee-jerk reactions occur. From this, many groups were urging boycotts of Chick-fil-a.

After hearing a lot of noise on the internet, it seemed like everybody was boycotting the restaurant. However, August 1 was Chick-fil-a day, in which those that supported the company went to eat some tasty chicken, and on top of that, support free speech as well as traditional marriage. Chick-fil-a saw record sales for the day as a whole. Interesting!

Meanwhile, there was a man who berated an employee through the drive-in and thought it was a great idea to post this video on YouTube, in which he was properly berated by the internet and properly labeled an arse. He later lost his job, and the woman who was berated went on Fox News and forgave him. How awesome is that.

Now, here we are, several weeks later, and Chick-fil-a is no longer in the news as Paul Ryan being Mitt Romney’s Vice Presidential pick is now the hot item for the day (literally).

I firmly believe that everybody has a right to voice their opinions on what they believe in, for example, Starbucks, General Mills and a whole bunch of other company’s have come out in support of gay “marriage”. There aren’t lines of people who are boycotting these companies. (Although in Minnesota there was a nice boycott outside their office in which people “returned” GM products by throwing them in a dumpster (which later was given to a food shelf to help those that needed it)).

But, here’s a question that I ask the ENTIRE Christian/Catholic community.

If the small groups of people that firmly believe that everything that is contrary to natural law and Christianity has to make a lot of noise and threaten boycotts and lawsuits against companies that stand up for this, how come we aren’t doing the same when it comes to companies that support gay “marriage” and the like?

We should be boycotting Starbucks, General Mills and other companies that go out in support of gay “marriage”. From what I understand, those that support Traditional Marriage outweigh those that don’t. When you hear the liberal groups come out, it sounds like a whopping majority are in support, which in turn draws in more support as a lot of people like to be in the majority. So, if we had HUGE boycotts of these companies, how much louder would we be, the actual majority?

I think its important that we start standing up for traditional values and urge the companies that we buy from to support these values. After all, when a company profits off of your sale, and they use those profits to support their “values”, you in turn are supporting these values whether you think you are or not.

So, let’s start having our voices heard. Let’s be vocal! Preach the gospel!

Is Red Bull Anti-Catholic?

As I was watching a video online, I was presented with a rather crude advertisement for Red Bull. It begins with two young lads talking outside of a Church and what presumed to be a Catholic priest walking in. One boy asks the other, “are you sure this will work?” My immediate thought was, ok, how does “Red Bull gives you wings” have any effect on religion? Will the boy drink it and “beat” the priest to Heaven? Well, in short, he goes in and confesses adultery and the priest then berates the boy with questions on which woman it was. The boy says he won’t tell and walks out and tells his friend “I have two more leads!”

Seriously…is this what Red Bull thinks of Catholics? I don’t get how they believe that this is really going to help advertise.
I urge you to boycott Red Bull and complain to them here:
