American Family Association Lies About “Victory” of Home Depot Boycott

Liar

Liar, liar cross on fire!

Despite the fact that Home Depots has tripled since the start of their boycott. Tim Wildmon, President of The American Family Association, has sent out an email to his insane faithful followers declaring victory in their long and useless boycott against the home repair giant for being LGBT inclusive and supportive.

“I’m glad to report to you that we are suspending the boycott of Home Depot. After monitoring the company for several months, AFA is satisfied the company has withdrawn its major financial contributions to gay activist groups and events. I truly believe this is a direct result of your willingness to become involved. In fact, more than 750,000 people signed the Boycott Home Depot Pledge. Although Home Depot has made changes, we will continue to monitor their behavior. We suspect Home Depot will publicly deny having made changes, but their actions speak louder than words. Your AFA will continue to challenge major U.S. companies to remain neutral in the culture wars rather than to use their resources to promote anti-family issues. Thank you for standing with us. Our efforts are making a difference!” – American Family Association president Tim Wildmon,

Zack Ford at Think Progress has a statement from Home Depot on Wildmon’s inaccurate claim:

“We haven’t made any changes to our policies for inclusion and respect of all people, regardless of their sexual orientation. We have not directed our associates to discontinue participation in Pride or other community events, and have no intention of doing so.”

Ah the American Family Association.  I love the smell of desperation in the morning.

  1. In all seriousness….. there is nobody around I assume who even starts considering to think that any member of this bunch of crankers from the AFA have told at any time anything that even resembles truth, is there?

    AFA in itself as club of liars is a lie, as family is an invention by a bunch of hypocrites, profit-makers, child-abuser and other sorts of degenerates!

    People who support AFA are and religious zealots who should be put away in the most secure mental prison (not a mental institution as that would be treating them too kindly!), and in majority child-abusers, racist as well as mentally totally retarded and backward fools!
    (and no, this is not name-calling, it are facts and proven facts!)

    But then, who can blame the ignorant hey?
    Those who are to blame are the ones who are self-proclaimed leaders of this club of nutcases, who indoctrinated the ignoranti, the illiterates, and the useless with hate, hate-mongering, and denial of their own sexuality!

    We all know that those self-proclaimed leaders are the foulest of the foulest, doing the most sick and foul things thinkable, from physical to mental abuse of children, from mental to physical abuse of women, the sick and the elderly, as well as getting richer and richer through and by demanding contributions of the members that even the most egoistic and money-hungering capitalist wouldn’t think of!
