Companies That Support Gay “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:
Companies Who Support Homosexual “Marriage”:
- Absolut Vodka
- American Airlines
- Ben and Jerry’s
- Blue Cross Blue Shield
- Burger King
- Columbia Sportswear
- Crate and Barrel
- General Mills
- Goldman Sachs
- Guiness Beer
- Heineken Beer
- Honey Maid
- Jet Blue
- Johnson & Johnson
- Ketel One Vodka
- Levi Strauss
- Miller Beer
- Old Navy
- Sam Addams Beer
- Smart Car
- Thomson Reuters
- Walt Disney Company
- Whole Foods
So no offense but just for clarification, why do you run a Facebook page if its on the boycott? people using Facebook is how they make their money. And for that matter how does culpability attacach to that? using something so that they can make money by showing adds, we’re not directly paying for a service, but they get paid for us using it. Idk makes my head hurt
It’s a tough line to walk. I actually had a discussion with a friend on culpability for using ad blocker on websites. It’s probably a gray area if anything. I do think though if all Catholics suddenly stopped using Facebook because of this, they would see an instant drop in revenue and would reconsider their decision. Might be a good blog post for later?
Burger King does?? I know for a fact that Mc Donald’s did because myself and others boycotted them. I don’t think Mc Donald’s does any more, but I still boycott them nonetheless.
I’m not sure if Burger King officially does or not, but I recall this past year they were passing out free Whoppers at the gay pride parade with the wrapper saying something along the lines of “The Whopper is coming out”. It saddens me because I think their burgers are the best of the fast food chains out there.
The gay pride whopper was a bridge too far. Boycott stands for me. On the plus side, boycotting the fast food chains means more meals at home with the family at one table and that has more benefits than just your waistline and cholesterol levels. It’s time we started putting our money where our hearts are. Dump the girl scout cookies too while you are at it. “Cookiecott” as they call it has driven them now to set up to sell direct in stores. We have had a crushing effect on the whole organization, now is not the time to drop the pressure.
They must fear our boycott far more than the 1-2% of the population that is Gay.
How does one use the Internet without supporting the gay agenda?
Google seems to run most of the Internet. My former employer used gmail and I had to set up an account that began to interfere with all my online activity.
I stopped my blog after learning about Google’s support, but I still visit YouTube frequently. I have (almost) never “googled” anything. I prefer other search engines. Unfortunately they often get some of their results from Google.
My favourite browser, Firefox, even tried to get rid of their CEO due to his open support of traditional marriage!
What is one to do?
The catholic church is too busy pushing income equality (i.e. socialism) to care about all of this, and apparently the flock doesn’t listen to the church anyway (see Ireland). Most people are sheep who follow what is popular according to the opiate of the masses. Good luck.
Spoken like a true communist. Pinky… Ironically you critique what you consider socialist policies with a quote from Karl Marx.
It is impossible to boycott all the companies listed above, and their subsidiaries which go by other names. Why? Because they are the rulers of the world, the people who decide who will be President, and what wars we should go and fight. Boycott is only a tactic, which may or may not work depending on who or what is being boycotted. Its possible to boycott small companies, but big massive multinational companies which have a finger in every pie, it is nearly impossible.
only about 1.5% of the population are homosexual, however, it is obvious where the media, with its promotion of Bruce Jenner aka Caitlyn as a ‘hero/ine is taking us, and transgender reassignment and sensitivity courses are on their way everywhere. watch your schools! Archbishop Desmond Tutu, an Anglican, recently said that homophobia was comparable to blasphemy. Even many churches have been so thoroughly infiltrated by the enemy.
I came to this link as this is a subject that I have been giving alot of consideration.
I am a Roman Catholic faithful to Christ and His Church. And, clearly, His teaching and the RC Church do not allow for homosex in any form and marriage least of all.
I stopped watching the SF Giants after learning of their letter to SCOTUS supporting homosex fake marriage.
It seems an impossible task to extricate my life from these companies. I’ve invested in them in my taxable accounts and my 401k is rife with them.
To me, it does not seem relevant whether a boycott is effective or not. Christ doesn’t call on us to succeed but He does call on us to try. His is a call to faith and sacrifice. We WILL have to account for all of our decisions and actions to Him Who is King and Judge of All at the moment of our deaths. I don’t know how I can explain to Him how it was too hard to be faithful to Him and His teaching. He died for me and my sins. I will pray for guidance in this area and perhaps talk with my pastor.
I’d certainly welcome comments,
It’s something I’ve been giving a lot of thought to lately as well. I think if we collectively as Catholics, and certainly those who are against gay “marriage”, we would be far more successful in turning the tide. However, we are not organized, and the majority of Catholics don’t even practice their faith. The Bishops have been mostly mum about the decision and won’t even talk about it, instead they turn and look at more “important” issues such as illegal immigration and communion for adulterers.
Individually we can give up being customers to companies who support this heinous crime. Obviously we can’t give up everything (I use Facebook, Twitter and other such companies to help promote this blog). But if there isn’t a need and you can find an alternative, that would be the wisest choice.
As Christians, RC or not, we are responsible for our own actions. I cannot knowingly do business with a company that supports non-Christian values. However, to complete this task, one must be taken out of this world. But in my opinion, using the internet is not the problem. Not spending your money at a store or buying specific products that you know are supporting any non-Christian value is an individual choice. Just as anyone else who would boycott a store for supporting Christian values. We are no different in the fact that we all make everyday choices that affect our lives, today and tomorrow. We all must learn to respect the other persons choices whether we agree with or disagree. That is what truly makes the difference in this world is acceptance without demands. My personal choice is to not support these companies any longer financially. It will be hard, but I think I can do it, with the Lord’s help and guidance.
I’m a devout Catholic 4rm Nigeria.Tho my country isnt n support of gay but a pull-out 4rm ths firms 2 me aint realistic
