If passed into law, these proposals would cause significant harm to many people and will result in job losses. They would also violate Delta’s core values of mutual respect and dignity shared by our 80,000 employees worldwide and the 165 million customers we serve every year. 


Since Delta is a secular run business how would this law affect it or its employees? How would Religious freedom cost jobs? Dramatizing much.

These large corporations best stay out of this issue. They forget Chick Fil A and Christian support of it.

“When given a choice, I will now avoid Delta Airlines.”
_______________________________________________________
Sad to hear about Delta. It use to be a fine airline that I knew back in my youth from the days of Delta/C&S.
Delta was noted for never loosing a passenger in a crash.
I knew several of their senior pilots, including one that flew their first 747 flight from Atlanta to Paris. Their safety record was second to none.
I think they really began to sink in the early 2000s.
I was on a flight from Europe to Atlanta. The stew was coming up the isle serving drinks. The guy behind me asked for a coke. The stew asked for a dollar.
When she got to me, I said that I had never heard of being charged for a soft drink on an international flight. She barked back at me..”well, we are just trying to keep from going bankrupt!”. I never flew them again.

Sadly, there are more and more major corporations that are coming out publicly in favor of the homosexual agenda.

Enough are doing so that it is becoming increasingly difficult to avoid all of them.

The way to reverse this corporate support of the homosexual agenda is to gain control of the boards of such companies and install CEOs that focus on business and not on the distracting agendas.

To accomplish a takeover requires grassroots investing to the point of having an effective control of shares. For example, Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway controls Moody’s with 26% of the shares.

The shares have to be bought up in fragmented fashion so as not to tip off the homosexuals that control is at risk. The grassroots groups need to direct individual members to buy shares and then secretly organize to vote out the management at an annual shareholder meeting.

If conservative grassroots Americans can band together and not be divided, nothing can stop them.

“Delta Air Lines is proud of the diversity of its customers and employees,” as long as there customers and employees place LGBT values and beliefs above Christian values and beliefs.

Actually if I were a baker, I’d bake the damn cake and tell the same sex couple I don’t carry same sex cake toppers. They are a customer and treating them as such does not show I support them or diminish my beliefs. However as a photographer I would turn them down. Since it would require that I attend their event and witness the entire ceremony against my will. There is a difference.

Not the case anymore. Most polls since 2010 have shown majority support for gay marriage, with support constantly increasing. Recent polls have shown something like 55% in favor to 35% against. IOW, we're rapidly closing on 2/3 in favor. Young people are very disproportionately more in favor.

I happen to disagree with the majority on this issue, but it does no good to pretend the facts are other than what they are.

I agree there ought to be some way to draw a line between providing a product and actually participating in an event.

With all the hollering about same-sex marriage being “just like” inter-racial marriage which was once outlawed, I don’t remember anybody back in the 60s trying to force bakers or photographers to cater to inter-racial weddings.

Also, pray and work for a Third Great Awakening in this nation.

We could ask the Holy Spirit to move in the hearts and souls of the lost. I could live my life in a more unashamed and bold way....my guess is most Bible believing Christians could do so, too.

The early Christ followers did that and changed the perverted Roman Empire.

Why does an airline feel it is necessary to defend perverts?
Shut up and fly your planes!

On the interracial marriage point. I don’t remember any flap either. I’m tired of the crap. If I wanted service from someone I suspected did not want to provide it to me. I’d look for another provider. But it’s not about service. It’s about forcing your will on someone else.

This isn’t merely to appease the LGBT community; it’s now late enough in the game to appease the 50% of the credulous populace (the 50% who still fly for business reasons) who have been convinced that there’s a civil rights issue to be righted. Poor America.

A male flight attendant told my wife & I that he wore a wedding band only because he needed a `fag deflector’ while working in a business dominated by faggies. Made things tough with his girlfriend, though; “She keeps asking me when I’m going wear it for real!”

Anyway, Delta can go climb a tree. If I can’t drive somewhere, then I’m not going. Lots of America out there to see.

Homosexuals are now the elite of America's elite.

How else to explain how 2 percent of the population has the rest of the country so completely wrapped around their finger?

Hey take your pick...You think that you can avoid this think again. You want to drive...fine ALL the auto companies have the same policy statement. These are publicly traded companies un like Hobby Lobby or Chick Fil A.

If you all choose to live in a hole in the ground so be it.

Some examples...

American Airlines LGBT Policies, Practices and Community Recognition at a Glance
For nearly two decades, American Airlines has been a pioneer in its fair-minded policies and practices for its lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) customers and employees. American Airlines has consistently held the highest possible ranking on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index and remains the most gay-friendly of all U.S. airlines through its generous partnerships with the LGBT community, as well as its loyalty and respect for customers, employees and shareholders, and unflagging commitment to diversity.
“We know that all passengers, including gays and lesbians, bisexuals and transgender people, have many choices when it comes to travel. We want your loyal business and we will work to earn it.”
American Airlines

At Southwest Airlines, we take pride in our outreach and commitment to the LGBT community. We have community partnerships with a variety of local and national organizations who are dedicated to LGBT causes and initiatives. As an example, we are the official airline of the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), the Gay-Straight Alliance Network (GSA), the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC), and the National Gay & Lesbian Task Force National Conference on LGBT Equality: Creating Change.

To learn more about our support of the LGBT community, please continue to navigate through our page. Visit often to stay up to date on our newest information, community partnerships, and upcoming events. We look forward to welcoming you onboard soon.

United Airlines was named one of the Top Companies for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Equality for 2013 by Work Life Matters magazine on Thursday night.

The annual award honors U.S. companies that develop “programs and policies that support LGBT employees and promote workplace equality,” according to a release.

Yup. A really big part of the issue is that, as Toqueville pointed out, is that Americans worship public opinion. We have a tendency to decide that whatever most people believe in is what is right and moral.

This means that until recently most opposed homosexuality primarily not because of deeply held moral beliefs, but because that was the popular belief. Now most of those same people switch sides as the popular opinion changes.

Alaska Airlines sent a letter of support as well.

Why do these companies have to get political?

Remember how Bill Ayres and Barack Obama both got places on the board of the Annenberg Foundation? It is no secret that leftists hae been infiltrating foundations, it should be no surprise that many liberals should be on corporate boards as well. I know that Hillary was on some board or another.

Don’t be surprised if you will be waited on by a guy dressed up as a stewardess. Delta is setting themselves up for it. The day will come when a male transexual will want to come to work dressed as a female and what will Delta say then?

Deltas dress code is stricter than the government civilians. I worked in a Delta hub. The guy/girl wears the appropriate female attire.
