Home Depot Doesn’t Cave to AFA

Home Depot Doesn’t Cave to AFA


Despite threats of a boycott, Home Depot chairman Frank Blake has refused to bow down to the American Family Association's demand that the retail giant stop sponsoring gay events.

The AFA's executive vice president, Buddy Smith, attended a Home Deport board meeting Thursday to present Blake with a petition bearing almost half a million signatures of those who say they'll stop shopping at the home improvement store until the company opts to "remain neutral in the culture war."

Smith told Bryan Fischer that Blake responded by reiterating Home Depot's commitment to promoting diversity and vowing to "continue down the very track they're going."

Watch the interview with Smith below.
