For years now The Home Depot has given its financial and corporate support to open displays on homosexual activism on the main streets of America. Instead of remaining neutral on the subject, The Home Depot has chosen to sponsor and participate in numerous gay pride parades and festivals through out the country. The goal of every homosexual organization supported by The Home Depot is to legalize gay marriage. Stephen Holmes a senior manager for The Home Depot said " At the end of the day here, we're not going to send anything out that forbids our associated to be involved in these festivals in any way." A glimpse of The Home Depot's record in supporting the homosexual agenda is as follows: June 2010 The Home Depot set up Kids Workshop at several homosexual festivals and parades, GLAAD ( a politically active gay group) announced on its web site that The Home Depot has agreed to match all contributions made by company employees, In 2008 the company sponsored Durham Pride Weekend, activities at this festival included messages for couples and drag shows. This is anti logical to me. How does supporting these left of center, cultural left, and out right just plain wrong activities increase the brand awareness or goodwill of this company. If I were a stock holder of this company I would be outraged, then I would quickly sell my shares. The sponsoring of these events is not a plus for the business growth of this company. I am sure they have lost customers and some market share because of it. The executives of this company are supposed to be promoting its growth and overall goodwill to the majority of its potential customers. Instead the sponsorship of these activities flies in the face of the majority of its customers to generate goodwill in a segment of the population that is less that 10% of its total potential customer base. The support of these activities by The Home Depot is not just morally wrong, but it is very bad business practices as well.
