History Repeats Itself BOYCOTT COORS! – Coors Chairman To Speak At Anti-Gay Legatus Organization Gathering

COORS BOYCOTT

 

While BOTH actor Gary Sinise, and FOX News Anchor Bret Baier,have cancelled,  Pete Coors, the Chairman of the Molson Coors Brewing Company  along with Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and NYC Archbishop Timothy Dolan, are still planning to  headlining the annual conference of the Catholic Legatus organization that harbors very hateful views on gays, supports “gay conversion” therapy and calls same-sex attraction a ‘disorder’

It’s impossible to see homosexual unions as being in line with God’s intentions for marriage since the product of intercourse is not fruitful. Along with masturbation, fornication, and adultery, homosexuality is a selfish act that cannot fulfill the divinely ordained purpose of the reproductive powers. The Church teaches that God instituted the sacrament of Marriage, and only He has the authority to change the nature of marriage. Neither the Church nor the state has the competence to alter the substance of marriage or the family. Attempts by civil government or the courts to alter the law in favor of same-sex unions distort the true meaning of marriage, which has existed for thousands of years

Fortunately there is hope for those who suffer from the disorder. The National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality reports that significant numbers of homosexual persons have undergone treatment and had their sexual drives properly ordered. These findings are a beacon of hope to those suffering from SSA, as well as for their family and friends who desire their happiness and good health. Finally, for those who for whatever reason cannot be cured, there is a support group known as Courage to help them live safe, moral, chaste lives. Those who continue to suffer from this disorder can find true help through an orientation toward their Savior and Redeemer, “the Orient from on High,” and the life that He offers them in Himself.

In 1977 lesbian/gay businesses joined an AFL-CIO boycott of Coors, citing Coors’ history of support for attacks on gay rights. Sales of Coors beer plummeted in the gay community. In response, in 1978 Coors adopted language against discrimination on account of sexual orientation in employment, and has offered small sums of money to lesbian/gay organizations in order to recover beer sales and improve Coors’ public image. (which they still do to this day)

But Coors has never stopped funding right-wing attacks on gay rights. Coors had never really learned since the 1977 boycott of gays and lesbians and have always put up a good front.  That is until now.

The Coors family still supports extreme right wing anti-gay groups and politicians to this day through their foundations and individual Coors family members who profit from the brewery. Coors wants lesbians and gay men to buy their beer so they can use the profits to fund right wing attacks on our civil rights.  Beneficiaries of the Coors’ largesse include: The Heritage Foundatio.  The Center for the Study of Popular Culture, David Horowitz’ far right wing group. Horowitz has written demagogically, blaming gay men for the spread of AIDS and The Council for National Policy, a group of far right wing anti-gay bigots include and have included Pat Robertson, Phyllis Schlaffly, Jerry Falwell, Oliver North, Gary Bauer, Ralph Reed, Ed Meese, Lon Mabon and Sen. Jesse Helms.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

LGBT COMMUNITY BOYCOTT COORS ONCE AND FOR ALL AND DO NOT ALLOW THEIR GIFTS AND DONATIONS TO GAY ORGANIZATIONS PINKWASH THEIR BIGOTRY AND RIGHT WING EXTREMISM!

Fool me once shame on me. Fool me twice FUCK YOU!
