Culture war between pro-family groups and homosexual lobby on the rise in business world

.- More than 40 pro-family groups in the US have threatened to boycott Ford if it continues to openly support the gay lobby, according to the Human Rights Campaign, the largest pro-gay, lesbian and transsexual organization in the United States.

In addition to Ford, Kodak and Hewlett-Packard also openly support gay activism among their employees.  Some employees who defend Christian values or express their opposition to pro-gay policies have been let go.

The Human Rights Campaign has given its highest marks to a number of well-known companies, such as American Airlines, Apple, AT&T, BP, Chevron, Citigroup, Credit Suisse First Boston, Daimler Chrysler, Dell, Deutsche Bank, Ernst & Young, Estee Lauder, Intel, IBM, J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., Johnson & Johnson, Levi Strauss & Co., Merrill Lynch, MetLife, Microsoft, Nike, Pepsico, Toyota, UBS and Xerox.

By supporting and encouraging gay activism, these businesses promote an anti-family and anti-marriage agenda. For this reason 42 groups have sent a letter to Ford threatening a boycott if it does not cease from “supporting any group involved in the current ‘culture war’.”

The American Family Association had previously organized a boycott against Ford, but the company announced in December it would suspend its financing of the gay lobby.  Several days later, Ford officials met with representatives of seven homosexual organizations and broke their commitment with pro-family groups.

Another company involved in the ‘culture war’—although not listed by the Human Rights Campaign—is Procter & Gamble, which has been criticized as well for its practices in the third world and for producing explicit educational material.

Some 250,000 have signed a manifesto calling for a boycott of the company for promoting “homosexual marriage.”  Officials at Procter & Gamble deny having supported such an idea but according to those calling for the boycott, the company backs the idea implicitly by claiming that “restricting” marriage to the union of a man and a woman is discrimination.

Allstate is another company that unconditionally supports the gay lobby through financial donations.  Employees at Motorola who attend a company-sponsored workshop on how to eradicate homophobia in the workplace are not allowed to openly express their opinions.  The company also has a section on its website, called MotoPride, specifically geared to homosexuals, lesbians, bisexuals and transsexuals.

Sony Music has initiated a new project with Wilderness Media & Entertainment, one of the founders of LOGO, MTV’s gay channel.  Sony also supports abortion by sponsoring the organization Rock for Choice, which brings together popular artists such as Pearl Jam, Soul Asylum, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Iggy Pop, R.E.M., Green Day, Cyndi Lauper, Pet, Peter Gabriel and Tracy Chapman in support of abortion.  Pro-life artist have formed their own organization, Rock For Life, to counteract the movement.
