NOM has started a new boycott (oh boy). This time it is Chase Bank that they are pretending to dislike as victims of non-existent persecution. Like their silly campaign to boycott Starbucks, this too shall fail because it is without substance. However, these campaigns are based on bringing in donations regardless of what they actually accomplish. What? You thought that they were issue oriented? These people are flailing about trying to keep a failed organization in business. They exist solely to continue to exist and pay salaries. The idiotic IRS controversy must have peaked so Chase is the successor.

JP Morgan Chase recently surveyed employees with voluntary questions on a voluntary questionnaire which was completed anonymously. In the minds of the perpetually persecuted heterosexual Christian majority a target list was created by asking anonymous employees if they would consider answering the question if they consider themselves LGBT allies. Of course none of this makes any sense and never did make sense.

What I find intellectually offensive about all this is that Christians have full employment protection under federal law. LGBT people do not. In 32 states we can be fired, not offered employment or not promoted simply because we are members of a group that Christians disapprove of. What we achieve on the job is deemed irrelevant. It is organizations like NOM that promote this form of discrimination and now they have the balls to claim that they are being victimized. Let’s see if donors are as idiotic as NOM presumes them to be.
