Starbucks, Google, CBS, Nike urge gay marriage recognition

Nov 11, 2011 | Posted by: Gay And Proud | Full story: www.bpnews.net

Some of the nation's top companies such as Google, CBS, Starbucks and Nike have joined forces in a legal brief asking a federal court to force the federal government to recognize gay "marriage." The friend-of-the-court brief asks the U.S. First Circuit Court of Appeals to uphold a 2010 lower court ruling that struck down part of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act. In that ruling, Judge Joseph L. Tauro said the federal government must recognize gay "marriages" from such states as Massachusetts, Vermont and the other four states where it's legal.

All total, 70 businesses, cities, law firms, trade and professional firms signed the brief. You’re going to have to do a lot of boycotting to support you bigoted narrow viewpoint. I doubt you have the perseverance to put your money where your mouth is.

Wow, did you read the article? It's from the "baptist press," and boy oh boy, are their bigotries showing! Talk about a one-sided article.

The author repeats all the anti-gay themes from the House's brief supporting DOMA - with nary a mention of how others have resoundingly and repeatedly demolished those arguments.

Hoo, Boy! More businesses that the Fundies have to boycott! Of course, they are too fucking stingy to ever buy Starbucks (the probably drink Folger's) or buy Nike (their sneakers come from WalMart), but now they won't be able to use Google or watch CBS.

Soon there will no longer be any scripturally correct businesses. So along with homeschooling their retarded little brats, they will have to grow all their own food, build their houses from scratch from wood they get themselves, forgo telecommunications and electricity, and make their own clothes. Since they are all so fond of living in the Dark Ages, this should be right up their alley.

How much money did these companies give to the pervert-pedophile baby-raping operation run by Penn-Pedo State?
A lot.
Homosexuals may whine about how much they have a right to touch children sexually and will probably get corporate sponsorship advocating that adult homosexuals should be able to have sex with children and not go to jail, but it's not at all clear that will be helpful in maximizing profits to the share-holders.
Companies with a "culture" affiliated with homosexuals are exposing themselves to significant legal liability.

From a financial, PR, and investment stand-point, I'm inclined to agree. Companies and institutions that seem to care more celebrating and covering-up deviant and criminal sexual activity rather than core responsibilities to maximize revenue are poor and failing institutions indeed.

Good luck with that. Seems that every time the people and organizations that are opposed to any recognition of gay people get into a courtroom, their support dries up. They are unable to make a case in a court of law. Fox "news" and any number of anti-gay organizations can air 30-second spots on TV saying all kinds of untrue things and they get away with it. It's a little different in a courtroom when witnesses are sworn to tell the truth and can be cross-examined.

Maybe, just maybe, because there is no credible evidence to support their bigotry.

Almost every computer company is gay friendly, are you going to stop using your computer? Oh, PLEASE, please boycott your computer. Then we won't have to read your nonsense anymore.

Come on, big mouth, tell us what kind of computer you have and then I will look it up and see if they are gay friendly or not, and in the likely event they ARE, then you must follow through and STOP using your computer. So, come on, big shot. One or two words is all we need. "Hewlett Packard", "Apple," "Sony," which computer are you using?

Boycott away no one will notice. The majority of U.S. business support LGBT people. Businesses found out in a hurry what happens when they act like bigots like you. So have fun with your boycotting to bad you won't be able to let us know how its going because most likely the computer you use and your IP our both LGBT friendly.

Why is it that you trolls are the only ones who ever talk about sex on this gay/lesbian forum? Now explain to us how companies that support equality for all citizens will lead to significant legal liability. Not in your own words but I want to see some legal research that proves your statement.
