AFA Blasts Home Depot for Pride Festival Support

As one conservative religious group sees it, the Home Depot has gotten a little too cozy with the gay community.

In a communique, American Family Association president Tim Wildmon blasted the home-improvement retailer for sponsoring gay-pride festivals in New England that included hosting a kids' crafts station at Southern Maine Pride for the children of families in attendance.

"To this end, Home Depot is basically encouraging the attendance of children at events which openly expose them to transvestites, cross-dressers, and homosexual activists," wrote Wildmon, who urged AFA members to call and e-mail the company's corporate offices in protest. "Gay-pride events have a long track record for offensive public displays of homosexual conduct. Obviously, Home Depot is OK with the idea of exposing children to an unhealthy and risky environment. So much so, it is willing to also celebrate it by participating in its promotion."
