Posted on 07/10/2012 6:54:17 AM PDT by IbJensen
Mark Palmer-Edgecumbe, Googles head of diversity, made the official announcement during the Global LGBT Workplace Summit in London on July 7, and indicated that the initiative, called Legalize Love, debuted in Poland and Singapore that day because Poland does not recognize same-sex couples and Singapore has laws against sodomy.
The Legalize Love initiative will promote human rights and tackle employment discrimination in countries with anti-gay laws on the books, Google said in a written statement, according to CNN.
The campaign will eventually expand to every country where the company has an office, said Palmer-Edgecumbe, but first will focus on places with homophobic cultures, where anti-gay laws exist, adding that Singapore wants to be a global financial center and world leader and we can push them on the fact that being a global center and a world leader means you have to treat all people the same, irrespective of their sexual orientation.
We want our employees who are gay or lesbian or transgender to have the same experience outside the office as they do in the office. It is obviously a very ambitious piece of work, Palmer-Edgecumbe said, according to the homosexual professional networking site Dot429.
According to Dot429, Googles strategy involves developing partnerships between companies and organizations to support grass-roots campaigns.

Panelists at the Global LGBT Workplace Summit included Bob Amnnibale of the international financial conglomerate Citigroup, Harry Gaskell of the professional services firm Ernst & Young (http://www.ey.com/), and Claire Lucas of the US Agency for International Development (USAID), who all praised Googles homosexual initiative against Poland and Singapore.
Lucas said, What we have found is that a partnership between corporations and the US government is very powerful. We are working with some NGOs and some corporations on a global LGBT partnership. The corporations are co-funding with the US government these civil society organizations around the world. USAID is well known for pushing contraception, legalized abortion, and sterilization on developing countries all over the world in its population control programs.
Bob Amnnibale, an openly homosexual Citigroup executive, said, The fact that Google is so virtual and its appeal is very wide and young demographically means it can help spread messaging very, very quickly, while Harry Gaskell noted the weight of financial clout that could be exerted on the governments of small countries by wealthy companies.
If you are trying to change something, governments can exert diplomatic power, NGOs can martial facts and arguments, but corporations martial economic power. That is something even the most passive of countries will listen to, he told the summit according to Dot429.
Dot429 had stated in their original coverage that the Legalize Love campaign was launched by Google with the intention of inspiring countries to legalize marriage for lesbian, gay, and bisexual people around the world.
Google subsequently issued a correction statement saying the Dot 429 report was inaccurate and that the campaign is not specifically targeted at marriage equality laws.
Legalize Love is a campaign to promote safer conditions for gay and lesbian people inside and outside the office in countries with anti-gay laws on the books, said a Google spokesperson in the statement.
However, Google has given support to same-sex marriage initiatives in the past, including strongly opposing Proposition 8, the successful 2008 referendum in California that banned same-sex marriage, and supporting a 2011 lawsuit seeking to nullify the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), the U.S. federal law that protects marriage as between a man and a woman.
Buggerers, wankers, twits; there are many terms to tack on the the sodomites; however, if only the American people realized what these miscreants call love they'd puke their guts out.
Shoving a penus up another man's anus should seem wrong. As part of their love procedure, the dip stick is then cleaned up by the partner who as enjoyed having his intestines enlarged.
Now, how can J. C. Penny and a hundred or more companies pump money into this gaggle which should be shunned as one might have shunned a leper in the days of Christ.
Well, I guess I’m gonna have to find a new email service.
“Legalize Love”. Geez the morons are dragging us back into the psychedelic 60s. I thought those days were behind me. I was hoping to get outta here before the freaks started that crap again.
I’d like to see these jokers try this in every Arab and Moslem nation.
I believe the most “homophobic” countries are Muslim. You know, Saudi, Iran, Afghanistan, et al. Is Google really going to take them on? I don’t believe it, they will go for the soft targets like USA or Chile.
Google's getting creepy.
Or are they all too ‘brown’ for your tastes?
Once again, it's Christians who must change, while Islamic countries continue to murder people. Just once - just once, I'd love to see one of the liberals stand up at one of these conferences (as I find it hard to believe most conservatives could stand not bathing for that long) and throw down the gauntlet on this.
‘Here's the video of a woman being shot in the head 8 times for daring to look at a man for more than two seconds... Where's your gender equity now? Or these 12 men have been executed this year for being gay - why are you targeting places where someone might ‘feel’ bad, vs places where they die?
Judgment is coming to America.
Soooo, the commies/libs go crazy stating that the big old
evil United States of America goes around imposing
it’s big bad self on vulnerable nations all over the globe....
yet, somehow in their pea brains it’s within the realm of decency to impose their version of ‘love’ on the entire
Ah ha, makes so much sense..NOT
Or Poland and Singapore as the article states, but you are right. I hope they at least get called out for the absence of even mentioning countries where homosexuals are legally jailed or even executed.
Google are getting increasingly anal about this.
I switched to Ixquick and have suggested to family to do the same.
Dumped the google and bing.
Ixquick seems to be working just as well as google.
A friend told me Ixquick works with Google. Yes, they don’t record your IP, but they do stuff with Google.
I’ve been looking around, and it seems one of the few companies that REALLY doesn’t use Google is Bing. Unfortunately, that’s Microsoft, as in Bill Gates and MSNBC.
Check around the search engines. Many are powered in some way by Google.
However, one way you can get off Google is to get off Youtube (use Viveo) or certainly close down Gmail, which does have other choices.
www.goodsearch.com is a good choice. It actually gives money to good causes, as opposed to money google may give to its perverted preferences.
Every mosque is full of clean muslims men while muslim women are unclean & kept out of site.
http://search.yippy.com/ is terrific.
KMA you pervert enablers...........
google is a liberal cancer; do without them- search engine, mail, etc.
It would be Bing for me, but is Microsoft any better?
Is there some place where these goons can be flooded with email, especially from people who’ve had Google accounts for a long time and are now about to be disgusted beyond the pale?
Hey GOOGLE, shut up and search! A good alternative would be...
It’s hard to get out of Google’s tentacles. I went to Life Site News hoping to look at the cited article to get more details if possible, and didn’t see the article. What I did see was a YOU TUBE (!) video promoting Life Site News’s fund raising, which (the fund raising) is peachy keen with me. But maybe they should switch their video to Viveo?
Sounds like Google is being “Heterophobic”...
Heterosexual marriage is about a whole lot more than sex and the fleeting sense of love that sex produces. Anyone who has survived a long marriage knows this. It is an important institution for raising children and for taking care of and supporting one another.
If you want to see the post heterosexual marriage America-check out the Black ghetto. Check out the economic and social statistics for whites since we took up leftist ideas of unloving, competitive heterosexual relationships, easy divorce abortion and broken families.
There is nothing about the homosexual lifestyle and relationship that lends itself to marriage. There is no benefit in permitting homo activists to reshape and redefine marriage and love around homosexuals.
