    If Conservatives spent more time looking in the mirror rather than getting into other people`s business, America would be a much better place.

    Same here, Nebbie.

    Can you clarify this one for us, Fancy? A screenshot from a website of people known for their retarded (even by standards of many ultraconservatives) religious views doesn`t really say much. It looks like the AFA `shopped the pic on their site.

    The Home Depot has sponsored children`s activities at gay pride festivals- essentially giving the kids of gays and straight supporters a chance to get away from the scores of naked men into something a little more age-appropriate.

    It`s not that they are embracing "the spread of homosexuality" that bothers me. It`s the italicized diversity with a question mark...as if they are shocked that it`s happened.

    This is what the AFA has a problem with

    "- Full health insurance benefits to homosexual employees and "partners." The Home Depot recognizes two homosexual men who sleep together as "married."
    - Insurance for complete sex-change operations.
    - Requires some employees to attend diversity (homosexual acceptance) training."
    and more

    You`ve never been to a GLBTQ Freedom Day festival and parade, have you?

    How about Mardi Gras?

    Given how much sexual abuse goes on in conservative churches - not just the Catholic church, don`t you have other priorities to worry about?

    "Gay marriage > gay households > home improvement > SALES!"

    Lord knows the gays will be spending more time renovating their house than almost any straight couples, though I suppose they will be spending more time at fabric stores, not home improvement ones. Also, gay couples already live together, regardless of marital status, and have already probably made their houses fabulous.

    Uh, Seastone:

    As a one part of a gay couple, your logic is just as bad as those of the AFA. We spend a lot of time at Home Depot, and I can say in our 5 years together, we have NEVER gone to a fabric store. Really? Are you that closed-minded that you just go right for the stereotypes? It`s honestly just as bad with people like you that THINK they`re saying something "progresseive", when they`re really just showing off their own bigotry.

    @NDLOgan
    Maybe the gay stereotype, as well as all others, is just funny. Maybe you should try having some kind of dialogue with a person before making a judgment. But I`m sure your not stereotyping Seastone because of your preconceived notions. That would be showing of another form of bigotry, and I`m sure you would never do that.

    You know what this reminded me of?

    I once was in a waiting room and I spotted a magazine targeted towards the black demographic.

    Do you know what word I saw in there in every single advertisement?

    "Diversity".

    Now, it made me think, because never have I seen the word used with so much frequency, or urgency than in that magazine. To be sure, I picked up another magazine, this one targeted towards the white female demographic.

    The word did not appear once. At all.
