Barber claims he was told, "Here at Allstate we have a very diverse community."

As Michael Savage said, "Diversity" = Perversity. Truly we have become a nation worthy of Orwell.

corporations don't have the ballz to resist.

They'll have to grow a pair or watch their clientel dwindle to nearly zero and their bottom line turn red. People are starting to get fed up with the radical left and their forced acceptance of deviant behaviors under the guise of "Diversity" Hit em' where it'll get their attention! Their pocketbook.

I agree that lots of people are fed up, but how many people will really take their business elsewhere? Especially if the whole corporate world goes this way?
You are far more optimistic about this than I am. But I hope you're right, because it will become a huge problem.

I have not the slightest doubt that it will get worse before it gets better.

Did you read this...

The new blacklist:Corporate America is bowing to anti-gay Christian groups’ boycott demands

Spurred on by a biblical injunction evangelicals call “The Great Commission,” and emboldened by George W. Bush’s re-election, which is perceived as a “mandate from God,” the Christian right has launched a series of boycotts and pressure campaigns aimed at corporate America — and at its sponsorship of entertainment, programs and activities the Christers don’t like.

And it’s working. Just three weeks ago, the Rev. Donald Wildmon’s American Family Association (AFA) announced it was ending its boycott of corporate giant Procter & Gamble — maker of household staples like Tide and Crest — for being pro-gay. Why? Because the AFA’s boycott (which the organization says enlisted 400,000 families) had succeeded in getting P&G to pull its millions of dollars in advertising from TV shows like Will & Grace and Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. P&G also ended its advertising in gay magazines and on gay Web sites. And a P&G executive who had been given a leave of absence to work on a successful Cincinnati, Ohio, referendum that repealed a ban on any measures protecting gays from discrimination was shown the door.

Response to my email (included below).

Mr. Andrew:

Thank you for visiting the Allstate web site and sending your e-mail.

It is Allstate's policy to not discuss employment matters regarding
current or former employees on the grounds it is inappropriate to
discuss private matters publicly.

Allstate is a great employer and we're proud of our employment practices
and have been recognized in various venues for our good practices.

While the company has read in website press accounts that a lawsuit has
been filed against the company, we have not been served with the suit.
If and when we receive such a lawsuit, rest assured Allstate will
investigate the allegations and will respond in court.

Thank you again for visiting our Allstate Internet Site!

I got word of Allstate's despicable treatment of Matt Barber today via email from the AFA.

I emailed Allstate's home office today informing them that after 45 years of insuring my home and all my vehicles through Allstate, I am now shopping for another insuror(s) for the 3 auto policies which are due for renewal in Aug, and for the blanket homeowner's policy which expires next Feb. My local agent represents several other large insurnce companies, and I will visit his office next week to discuss replacing my current Allstate policies.

I had no idea that Allstate's management has been donating money and other forms of corporate support to pro-sodomy organizations for years with a part of the money I payed in premiums. Allstate's management is free to cater to radical left wing organizations which promote and subsidize the depraved lifestyle of sodomite perverts if they choose to, but I don't intend to help pay the bill for their PC nonsense.

That's what "gay pride" does for those who believe it. People become so convinced that there is nothing wrong with their foolishness that they eventually believe they can do NO wrong! ALL the rules go out the window as long as it promotes what they want!
