Home Depot promoting the ‘gay agenda’ — hate group AFA launches boycott

Staff Reports

The anti-gay hate group American Family Association is calling for a nationwide boycott against The Home Depot because it says the home improvement retailer continues to “promote the homosexual agenda.”

The AFA points to The Home Depot’s website, which promotes the diversity-oriented organization it supports, including “Out and Equal Workplace Advocates,” an LGBT advocacy group that supports workplace diversity, marriage equality, and activities such as Transgender Remembrance Day. The Home Depot also supports the Human Rights Campaign.

The AFA has been listed as a “hate group” by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

According to the SPLC, the AFA specializes in “combating the homosexual agenda.” Bryan Fischer, the group’s director of analysis for government and policy, has proposed criminalizing homosexual behavior and has advocated forcing gays into “reparative” therapy.
