San Francisco, CA: This process is moving a little slower than I would like, but I'm persistent, and I won't be deterred. The biggest obstacle to quicker results, is the affiliate networks that many of these large corporate entities maintain with outside sales and marketing outfits. Every company I have contacted had no idea that they had an affiliate marketing relationship with the un-Christian Values Network, and most had heard or read about Apple pulling Itunes from CVN. I have received a large number of commitments from companies committed to pulling their store fronts from CVN, and in order to do that they have to identify how they became entangled in this large web to begin with. Once they find out the details of how this relationship began, they are able to extricate themselves rather quickly.
To date Hewlett Packard, Westin Hotels, Barney's NY, Sam's Club, BJs Wholesale Club, Groupon, ESPRIT, PC Connection, Red Envelope, Expedia, Hotels.com, Travelocity, Priceline, Avis Rent A Car, Best Buy, Budget Rent A Car, and Radisson Hotels have chosen to stand for equality. Please continue to support these terrific corporations.
I want to clarify a misunderstanding. I consider organizations like the Family Research Council, Focus on the Family, and Promise Keepers, as hate groups that fail to embrace Christian values. That is my opinion, and how the Southern Poverty Law Center characterizes these groups, is immaterial. It is fact that these extremist un-Christian cabals lie, and incite hatred directed toward the LGBT community. They spread misinformation, and cite bogus studies, to diminish who we are, and who we love, and this is completely unacceptable.
Last time I checked, the obstructionist Christian tea-baggers hadn't taken over all branches of government. Freedom of speech and freedom of thought, still reigns. The un-Christian Values Network can threaten me all they want. I will not bow to threats, or threatening phone calls, and messages. If you want to file a lawsuit against me for exercising my right as an American to speak out, I say bring it on. The judiciary of any jurisdiction will find that your lawsuit has no merit. I've checked. Bring it on!
