Allstate, the insurance company being sued by a former employee who was fired after writing a column critical of homosexuality, is one of the top 10 firms supporting the "gay" lifestyle.
The list, compiled by Diversity Inc., includes, in ranked order: Eastman Kodak, Ford Motor Company, Citigroup, D&T USA, PepsiCo, Merck & Company, Kaiser Permanente, Visteon Corporation, Allstate Insurance and The Coca-Cola Company.
As WorldNetDaily reported, a former manager at Allstate's headquarters recently sued the company, claiming the insurance giant, which financially supports homosexual advocacy groups, fired him solely because he wrote a column posted on several websites that was critical of same-sex marriage and espoused his Christian beliefs.
The insurance company's foundation has donated money to homosexual-advocacy organizations, including the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation and the LAMBDA Legal Defense and Education Fund. A notice about the Allstate foundation says funds are given to "nonprofit organizations that are related to tolerance, diversity and inclusion."
The American Family Association distributed the "Top 10" list to its supporters, saying it was not surprised by the companies cited.
"These are companies which endorse and financially support the homosexual lifestyle, including homosexual marriage," said Donald E. Wildmon, chairman of AFA, in a statement.
"Polls, in addition to the overwhelming passage of every marriage amendment to reach a ballot, indicate the majority of the American public do not support homosexual marriage. We will continue urging our supporters to voice their disapproval of these companies financing the homosexual agenda and same-sex marriage and encourage them to consider this information when making consumer decisions."
Earlier, AFA announced a boycott of Ford due to its support of homosexuality, but suspended it until Dec. 1 after representatives of the company asked the organization to discuss the matter.

Corporations proud of 'gay' politics

I guess Allstate is who one would call if they are anticipating a rear ender?
I have Allstate. :-(
Time to boycott. Thanks for posting the article.
Lambda Lambda Lambda!
You got it backwards, Good Hands Are In You With Allstate.
Should Ford be on this list?

I buy Fuji film, drive GM vehicles, insure with Nationwide, bank with Navy FCU, and drink RC cola. I guess I'll have to check where my prescription meds are made.
