Over 250,000 people have signed an online pledge to boycott The Home Depot for its "sponsorship and participation in homosexual events," according to the American Family Association (AFA).
In July of 2010, the AFA announced it was launching a nationwide boycott of The Home Depot.
The AFA is a non-profit organization that advocates traditional family values and the reform of American culture "to reflect Biblical truth on which it was founded."
With nearly 200 radio stations and over two million online supporters, the organization prides itself as the largest and most effective pro-family group in the United States.
"The Home Depot, through any number of its affiliates, has given its money and its name to gay pride parades and festivals," said AFA president Tim Wildmon. "We've appealed to them to stay neutral in the culture wars, but they are determined to keep using their influence to push the normalization of homosexual behavior. Everyone of these pride events pushes the recognition of homosexual marriage, so The Home Depot has clearly chosen sides on that issue."
