Home Depot’s Gay Agenda

Home Depot set up a booth at the Atlanta Gay Pride festival the weekend of October 8 and entered a float in the parade.

Along side Home Depot’s float were marchers and other floats celebrating sadomasochism and bondage. For example, one group of marchers had large dog collars strapped around their necks and were being led by leather-clad “owners” holding chain leashes and whips.

[One] float depicted gay sex slaves being held in cages like animals. This particular float was just one of many showing the bizarre activities in the parade with which Home Depot connected itself.

Keep in mind, these abnormal behaviors were literally celebrated on public streets in Atlanta. Home Depot was proud enough to be right in the middle of it.

Over one-half million people have signed the pledge to boycott Home Depot until it agrees to remain neutral in the culture war…The Boycott Pledge [is available] at www.BoycottTheHomeDepot.com.

If you would like to sign the petition to boycott the home depot, there are copies of this petition on the table in the vestibule.
