Posted on 12/08/2013 11:18:55 PM PST by My Favorite Headache
So I was on the Marriott site looking for deals and vacations for the family this holiday season and early next year and they have a section for gay getaways.
I thought the Marriott family were all hardcore Christians and Mormons?

And maybe that’s what they call them (and for shame, of course, for dipping so deep in the gutter) but really, wouldn’t any group of people be able to use the deal? Until a customer is asked to prove his or her “gayness.”
Don’t expect a lot out of the LDS. They are confused at best and directed by the weather vane, not by the Holy Spirit.
Expect a lot out of God.
And anyhow, it’s just a broad hint at most. Yes it’s bad to do. No it would not be wrong for straights and singles, as applicable, to consider the deal. Hey, why not bring some gospel with you, if it really will be such an event. Some there would be very obdurate, but others may be going with the flow while still looking for something better in their heart of hearts. Help them find that something better. Go where the trouble is, and meet it. It’s God’s way. He went where the trouble was, 2000 some years ago.
Guess they won’t be supporting Romney anymore.
You mean the same Romney that demanded that the Boy Scouts allow gays?
Mormonism is a different religion from Christianity.
No Christian church recognizes Mormonism as a Christian denomination.
Ding! Ding! Ding!
Roomey works for them
I know that...but I also had read that not all of them were Mormon’s but Baptist’s as well.
Marriott was for many years in the late 1940s and 1950s president of the LDS Church’s Washington Stake headquartered in Washington, D.C
Marriott’s legacy continues today through the continuance of the company he founded and through his community involvement and philanthropy. Marriott was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and sought to share the church’s teachings with others by placing a copy of the Book of Mormon in each hotel room, alongside a copy a Gideon Biblea tradition that has endured. He also donated funds to the church’s flagship tertiary educational institution, Brigham Young University, resulting in the naming of the university’s 22,700-seat multi-purpose arena (Marriott Center) in his honor. While serving as home to the BYU Cougars men’s and women’s college basketball teams, the center also hosts various cultural events and religious devotionals. It is America’s largest on-campus arena built for basketball. Also at BYU, the university’s business school, the Marriott School of Management, is named in honor of Marriott. On the campus of Marriott’s alma mater, the University of Utah, stands the J. Willard Marriott Library.
Look at their corporate policy towards smoking. The Pink Swastika is part of the same intolerance.
I don’t know why the long history of the Marriott, Mitt was named after J. Willard Marriott, the founder of Marriott International.

Mitt Romney Rejoins Marriott International Board
Mitt RomneyW. Mitt Romney has rejoined the board of directors of Marriott International, Inc. (NYSE: MAR), the company said. Gov. Romney, the 2012 Republican nominee for U.S. president, begins his board term today.
J.W. Marriott, Jr., the companys executive chairman, said, We are delighted that Gov. Romney has agreed to rejoin our board, on which he has served with distinction twice before. We will benefit from his tremendous energy and capability to guide long-term success in an increasingly complex business environment. We look forward to working closely with him again as a member of our strong, talented and diverse board.
Arne Sorenson, Marriotts president and chief executive officer, said, Gov. Romney has proven to be an astute, independent director who is fluent in the demands and opportunities of our highly competitive industry. We are fortunate to have him back on our board.
Gov. Romney said, It is an honor to once again be able to serve in the company of leaders like Bill Marriott and Arne Sorenson and to support the work of the tens of thousands of Marriott associates who make Marriott International the renowned success that it is.”
Marriott has made sure he isn't jobless due to 2012.
"We are delighted that Gov. Romney has agreed to rejoin our board, on which he has served with distinction twice before," J.W. Marriott, Jr., the company's executive chairman, said in a statement. "We will benefit from his tremendous energy and capability to guide long-term success in an increasingly complex business environment. We look forward to working closely with him again as a member of our strong, talented and diverse board."
Romney addressed the move, which comes less than a month after his loss to President Barack Obama, in a statement.
"It is an honor to once again be able to serve in the company of leaders like Bill Marriott and Arne Sorenson and to support the work of the tens of thousands of Marriott associates who make Marriott International the renowned success that it is," he said.
If anyone wants to avoid Marriott hotels, here is a list of the company’s brands:
Smart move! Go after 2% of the market and alienate the other 98% This worked so well for JC Pennys!
More like, enjoy time with the 17 year old you just abducted. This would be great for Harry Reid. Wash the sheets!
I thought the Marriott family were all hardcore Christians and Mormons?
No the Marriotts are not Christians...
They are Mormons though...
Willard Mitt Romney of the Mormon pacifists Romneys was named for Willard Marriott..
I’ll not be earning any more Marriott points in this lifetime.
Marriott has announced that their properties are now homosexual whorehouses.
Ive got over a thousand nights at Marriotts and never cracked open the book of mormon once
They do run a great line of hotels but Springhill Suites not so much
Probably why they are pandering to the fags
