Since the HRC advocates and supports a boycott of XOM; maybe those who disagree with them should start an organized boycott of the HRC corporate sponsors:
American Airlines: "The Official Airline of
the Human Rights Campaign", an HRC National Platinum Sponsor.
Now talk about industries that have sunk bottom...airlines and communications.
The 'other' sponsors aren't worth mentioning, unless you're into lesbian or gay cruises.
Interesting, noticed that Subaru isn't there...they must have decided that gay people weren't buying many of them. I don't drive a subaru anyway.
Guess I've been boycotting these companies all along---and will continue to do so.
There are MORE of us then those in the HRC; let's see who's boycott is more damaging to the bottomline; most of those companies are hurting far worse than XOM.
Mr. Hunt; democracy in action!!
My response is the same. It was the last sentence in my post and it's hardly evidence of "snipping" or "sniping".
If you consider me "berating" what you wrote, you might want to take a look at your own remarks in the post where you "clarify" your "hoo boy" remark.
The cheap shots are being made by you.
You want to characterize my opposition to XOM's policies as hatred and prejudice---how convenient. Of course, you reject the notion that XOM's opposition to an EEO statement that includes sexual orientation is because of hatred and prejudice.
You ask: "Is it possible that a company can forbid discrimination even without an EEO statement?"
They'd have more credibility if they explain why they OPPOSE an EEO that includes sexual orientation.
What a surprise. When you can't address the issue, you resort to personal attacks.
They are so committed to protecting people against discrimination based on sexual orientation and providing equal opportunity that they won't even say THAT in their EEO statement.
