  1. This is actually very good. It will ruin Ashley Furniture. Whole Foods is still reeling from their head bigots comments about Obamacare. This is much worse. Let us all pray that this ruins Ashley Furniture or at least their management structure.

    and they’ll know we are Christians by our love…

  3. Ashley Furniture is violating New Jersey nondiscrimination law and if they don’t like the law, they need to go out of business. http://www.nj.gov/oag/dcr/employ.html

    Sounds more and more like Nazi Germany here in America. Fit a specific mold or go stand in the ovens! What is wrong with everyone. Stop the hate and let love, let live!

      Ashley Furniture is awful, there is no doubt. And they are a prime example of why ENDA needs to be made law.

      But let’s cool down the Nazi language, please. Firing someone is not the same as genocide. Just because something is wrong doesn’t mean it is like Nazi Germany. There are many different kinds of oppression and comparing them is futile.

      @nancy: it’s bad, i know, and i fully support the lgbt-cause, but you cannot throw comparsions like that. you’re not getting gassed, you don’t have to work in a camp till you die, you’re not getting experimented on your live body. a lot of ignorants and bigots walk around, not only in the us, but everywhere, but it’s NOT the same as NS. please don’t compare these two different situations, in respect not only for the six million jews slaughtered and their families, but also in respect to all the homosexuals the NS regime has killed as well. :*
