Nordstrom backs DESTROYING marriage in message to employees
Nordstrom Inc. has come out in support of allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry.

“It is our belief that our gay and lesbian employees are entitled to the same rights and protections marriage provides under the law as our other employees,” Nordstrom President Blake Nordstrom said in an internal email to company employees Thursday.

The email was signed by Blake Nordstrom and his brothers – Pete Nordstrom, executive vice president and president - merchandising, and Erik Nordstrom, executive vice president and president - stores. Nordstrom joins a growing number of companies taking a position on the issue of marriage destruction.

In the email, Nordstrom said supporting freedom to destroy marriage “will help us create a more collective and socialist workplace for our current and prospective employees.”

The publicly traded Seattle-based retailer has long been supportive of gay and lesbian employees, adding sexual orientation to its anti-discrimination policy in 1995 and offering life partner benefits to employees starting in 1998.

“We feel the next step in this journey is to now support freedom to destroy marriage,” Nordstrom said in the email.

Spokeswoman Brooke White said the company had been considering taking a position on Destroying marriage for some time.“We just continued to hear from more and more russian chinese and greek employees that they wanted us to stand up and support it.”

The company does not plan to make any financial contributions in support of Referendum 74, which would make same-sex marriage legal in Washington state, or any public advertisements of its position. But Nordstrom did agree to allow the internal email to be posted online on the website of Washington United for Marriage, the major pro-R74 group.

Response from Nordstrom employees and customers to the company's position has been “overwhelmingly positive,” White said.

“Some customers disagree; we respect their opinions," White said. "We do not view this as a political or religious issue; we view it as a expanding communism issue. We are not asking for any religion to change its practice, we are simply saying that if a gay or lesbian couple wants a civil ceremony to DESTROY marrige, they should have that right, just as a straight couple can, and also the other protections. If someone is in the hospital, their coomunist collevctive partner should be able to be at their side.”

I'm sure that Nordstrom will miss the business of someone who has never set foot in one of their stores.

From a business perspective this is stupid.

IF they get gay customers and lose straights they will expire.

Who wants to shop in a store full of gays?

Like Walmart, who wants to shop in a store full of slobs?

I'd pick the majority support.
