Commitment to diversity

A couple of weeks ago hate group the American Family Association (AFA) reported that The Home Depot appeared to be pulling back its support to gay rights activists. Fortunately, and as usual, they spoke too soon. Immediately after the AFA released their findings, Home Depot said it will continue to support gay rights activities. Home Depot issued this email statement to the AFA:

"We have never changed our commitment to diversity and inclusion of all people, and we have no intention of doing so. Nor have we changed our apron policy or the guidelines for our charitable giving."

Thank you, Home Depot! Of course, this won't stop the AFA from claiming victory, just as they did after the failed boycotts of The Walt Disney Company, Ford, and McDonalds, to name just a few. Still, it's great to hear their influence means absolutely nothing!
