Klingenschmitt Prays Against Home Depot for ‘Marching in Parades that Defile Children and Promote Sodomite Sin’

Back in January, the American Family Association was close to declaring victory in their long running boycott of Home Depot over the company’s sponsorship of gay pride parades, telling members that “in response to AFA’s boycott” Home Depot is “silently dropping public support for the homosexual agenda.” A week later, the AFA was forced to walk back their initially gleeful statement after Home Depot said that exactly nothing has changed, knocking down the AFA’s claims that their boycott has been effective.

In response to the AFA’s recommitment to the boycott, Religious Right activist Gordon Klingenschmitt called on members of his Pray In Jesus’ Name project to “boycott Home Depot” for having employees march “in parades that defile children and promote sodomite sin.” He went on to cite a much misconstrued passage in Romans for indicating that gays and lesbians are “worthy of death”

Klingenschmitt: Almighty God, we pray many more Christians will boycott Home Depot, who wrote a letter this week to the American Family Association saying they will continue sponsoring Homosexual Pride parades, and encouraging employees to dress in Home Depot aprons while marching in parades that defile children and promote sodomite sin. We refuse to buy anything there, because from Romans 1:32, “although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them,” in Jesus’ name, Amen.
