Are These People Dangerous?

I found this article on a parenting message board. Focus on the Family has decided to pull it's money out of Wells Fargo Bank because it evidences positive support of homosexuality. I remember the first few times I listened to Dr. James Dobson on national radio. He sounded like such a wonderful and intelligent man. Pictures of him show a man who could be my father or my grandfather.

Here is a portion of the article:

"The conservative Christian group Focus on the Family says it is withdrawing its funds from Wells Fargo because of the bank's support of gay groups.

"Focus on the Family has elected to end its banking relationship with Wells Fargo, motivated primarily by the bank's ongoing efforts to advance the radical homosexual agenda," says a statement on the Focus website dated Thursday and attributed to Focus President and Chief Executive Jim Daly.


"Our decision is not personal, but principled, and we trust our constituents and others will respect it," it says."

Would someone please tell the thousands of children being raised by gay parents that their families are no good? Luckily, corporate America has begun to realize that our money is as good as the next person's money. Gay men have more disposable income than any other single group in the country. How stupid would it be to refuse their piece of the pie?

For those who remain uninformed, gay parents raise no more gay children than do straight parents. Most of us had straight parents. They did not do anything to make us gay.

Perhaps Focus on the Family could put their time, energy, and money into something useful like solving world hunger or stamping out illiteracy. I hold out little hope for people whose main thrust appears to be damning those who do not share their narrow value system.

I sincerely hope Canada and the UK's recognition of gays will show the US that it doesn't mean the end of the world.

It's long past time the blinders came off and people realized this 'question' of equality is little more than a power play. *sigh*

sorry.. I tend to rant on this subject. *many hugs* ~ Nony

The can boycott all they wish, but the companies are making a huge mistake in siding with those that discriminate.

If any worker brings a discrimination lawsuit based on workplace conduct, all they need do is point to their public conduct. res ipsa loquitur.
