A Letter to Lowe's Home Improvement

I live nearer to Home Depot than to Lowe's. I love to shop at Home Depot, and found the people who work there very friendly. But I won't be spening any money there, since I read this from One Million Moms.
Here is a letter I sent to Lowe's. I'll post their response.

Dear Lowe's,

I was about to do major home repairs(about $10,000 worth) using products from Home Depot, after a washing machine flooded my home. One Million Moms told me in an email that Home Depot not only sponsored multiple gay pride parades, but encouraged children to attend by signing on as a vendor and offering workshops for them at the event.

I am looking for another home improvement company to spend my insurance check. Do you donate to homosexual organizations?

I have hope that their contributions are more family friendly since they are based in NC and all the contributions I see in Google searches seem decent (affordable housing, disease charities, etc).

Here is the information about Home Depot.

Home Depot seeks children at multiple gay pride parades
According to the Nashville Gay Pride website, Home Depot gave over $5,000 to be a major sponsor of its 2009 Gay Pride Festival in June.

But simply financing the event wasn't enough for the big box chain.Home Depot also signed on as a vendor, conducting kid's craft workshops for children via a special booth set up just for them.

To this end, Home Depot is basically encouraging the attendance of children at events which openly expose them to transvestites, cross-dressers, and homosexual activities.

Unfortunately, Home Depot's participation in the Nashville Pride Festival doesn't stand alone. It has also sponsored kid's booths at other gay events in Atlanta, Kansas City, Durham, Portland, and San Diego.

Gay pride events have a long track record for offensive public displays of homosexual conduct.

Obviously, Home Depot is OK with the idea of exposing children to an unhealthy and risky environment. So much so, it is willing to participate in it.


Let Home Depot know you are sickened by their support and approval of children at homosexual events.

If you are a customer, please add an additional personal line to our prepared letter to Home Depot.

After sending your email, make an extra effort to protect children by calling Home Depot personally.

As an FYI since 2005 Lowe's has offered domestic partner benefits to same-sex couples.

And, the reason Home Depot caters to the GLBT crowd? MONEY!

A study -- conducted in March by Chicago-based research agency Socratic Technologies and LGBT marketing agency Target 10 -- found that gay shoppers spend almost twice as much on home-improvement items at stores like Home Depot and Lowe's compared to straight peers, with 63% of gay couples saying they plan on starting new home-improvement projects in the next 12 months.

As always, follow the money!

That is probably true, however since homosexuals are only 2-3 percent of the population, their money doesn't come close to what average married couples spend.
If we could only get them to organize as well as gays. . .
