The 379 Companies Pushing Homo Marriage on the Supreme Court

image
Per the Huffington Post:
Big business has come out in favor of same-sex marriage.
Exactly 379 corporations and employer organizations urged the Supreme Court to strike down state bans on gay marriage, according to a friend-of-the-court brief obtained by The Huffington Post. The document was expected to be filed late Thursday morning.
“Employers are better served by a uniform marriage rule that gives equal dignity to employee relationships,” reads the brief, filed by global law firm Morgan Lewis. “Allowing same-sex couples to marry improves employee morale and productivity, reduces uncertainty, and removes the wasteful administrative burdens imposed by the current disparity of state law treatment.”
The list, provided in full below, includes corporate behemoths such as Coca-Cola Company, Goldman Sachs, Google and Morgan Stanley. It also includes brands like Ben & Jerry’s, a division of Unilever, and sports teams such as the New England Patriots, the San Francisco Giants and the Tampa Bay Rays.

I see my lamo bank (J P Morgan Chase) is on there. To see how many businesses promote this is disheartening. Then when we see the football teams (or whatever, I guess they are football) support; the question comes to mind–how long would normal people follow these teams if they integrate their cheerleaders with “transvestites” or gay men cheerleaders. I dare say we would see their followings plummet. This just gives me one big, fat headache! (Seriously, I’m going to go into the kitchen and take some Aleve.) Mike, thanks again for pulling together and presenting such vital information for… Read more »

I suppose we could explain this as being a business decision,not a personal choice.That’s probably true in many cases,and as can see,personal values have virtually NO standing in Big Business. VERY sad. That’s one reason I try very hard to support businesses whose owners are willing to stand on Principle even if it cuts into the profit. (I also notice business owners like this are more likely to help Veterans,Elderly,Handicapped and Impoverished people,on an individual basis,than,say, “Big Box Store managers.)

“removes the wasteful administrative burdens imposed by the current disparity of state law treatment.” Since when does anything having to do with state (notice he didn’t include federal) laws reduce administrative burdens? Just another spin.

Mike , I’m sorry to say , but I find the word “Homo” offensive
It’s a divisive term and as such it will only give people ammunition against us. Sorry, but times change and so do words.

The court’s job is to rule on the constitutionality of laws. If they were doing their job, no amount of pushing from outside forces would have any bearing at all.

All those politically-correct corporate boards whose members thinks this’ll make them favored cronies… suckers, unless your name is Buffett or Soros, progressives won’t even remember you.

Did anyone notice Miller/Coors? Let me tell you a little story. Some 20 odd years ago, Focus on the Family’s James Dobson was railing about United Air Lines allowing same sex insurance in their company. However, right in his own backyard was Coors who had been doing the same thing for years. But the Coors brothers, and Holly Coors were all members along with Dobson of the secretive Council for National Policy, so hypocritical Dobson didn’t bother to mention Coors. How did I know this? Because I visited some friends in Denver at the time, and the husband worked for… Read more »

I was ok until I reached the end of the letter C, since I get my scripts and basics at CVS. I used to take up a position in a prime picture taking angle of Boston’s annual gay pride parade. I had a website and 2 blogs for 20 year and every year I wrote a rather long annual entry with pics The Annual “Pride Goeth Before Destruction” gay pride parade entry. Each year more and more of the parade was taken up by corporate sponsors, politicians trolling for votes, liberal churches of every sort looking for pew warmers to… Read more »

What is even worse about this is the fact it will be remarkably difficult for any person to boycott or otherwise not support these vile corporations since they have tentacles and sub-groups in so many areas. This is why corporations should not be considered “people”, because they’ll do things like this and call it “free speech”. even though it is obvious a propaganda campaign with social and political aims.
What ever happened to that campaign to end corporate personhood, I wonder?

“For all that is secret will eventually be brought into the open, and everything that is concealed will be brought to light and made known to all.” Luke 8:17 I want to see these “brave” corporations take a step back and let the CEOs come forward to proclaim their support for sodomites to have marriage rights as heterosexuals. Equal rights for groups that are inherently/biologically unequal…makes a lot of sense. These CEOs are cowards and they hide behind their corporations pushing their evil agendas from their position of authority…..all with anonymity and apparent impunity from attacking Christians. We attach disdain… Read more »
