"As the New York Daily News reports, the Human Rights Campaign said Home Depot was one of the best companies for LGBT Americans to work at because of the company’s policies regarding health benefits to gay and lesbian domestic partners."

This is a good example of what happens when you cater to the homosexual activists. Are they grateful for all your "good deeds"? No, just the opposite. They turn on you in a heartbeat and sue you.

There's half a dozen lgbt individuals in my store, at various levels of employment - from cashiers to ASMs. They're all treated courteously and are more or less well liked. What's funny is that we're located in the deep south so we do get the occasional bible thumping moron associate, but they catch HR's fury full faced if they do much more than glare hard.

I've worked for lots of companies throughout my life, running the spectrum from neo-conservative to ultra liberal. THD seems about left middle.
