Talk of a religous conservative boycott of Delta, Home Depot and Coke

Tell Michael Griffin and his kind to go for it!  I think the results will be an eye opener for them.  A lot of people are getting just a little sick and tired of people pushing their own brand of religion on other folks.  This is not the 80's.

Soon the only thing these religious bigots will be able to do is drink water and eat food they grow in their "survival gardens"

to Michael Griffin- the truth is that you don't have the guts  to start a boycott against those heavy hitters- sir you are an outrageous buffoon and as a Baptist I happily say that you do not speak for me on any issue- AND never will. Why not go and burn some books or something

I just found this website that sells toilet paper

With the confederate flag on it

Kinda expensive But an exact replica

Great way to show pride in southern history

Every time you take a Dump

Hate is a thing to boycott, GOP. Supporting it is unwise and foolish.

To the GOP, boycott your own organization and stop using your bible for oolish behaviors

Well, this could make flying on Delta  more comfortable and might open the aisles of Home Depot enough to make me rethink my boycott that has been in place since they backed bush.

Let's just all stop for a moment, take a deep breath, and ask ourselves - what would Paula Dean do?"

Paula Deen would round her up her thinly veiled bigot supporter base to cook and feed the boycotters. After all, many of these are the same people supporting Paula.

I guess a desire to be non-discriminatory, inclusive, diverse and non-judgmental is both non-Christian and un-American. Who woulda thunk it.

Would you want these trouble makers in your business ? Better to loose a little money than deal with the headaches. It is always going to be "something" with this group. They enjoy the attention...they enjoy feeling more religious...they enjoy putting others down. Makes them feel important.  I now understand why the Puritans were run out of Europe.

Bwahahahahahaha!  If the boycott is as "successful" (snark) as the previous ones against Ford Motor Co, General Mills, etc then DL, KO, and HD have nothing to worry about.  Loss of business from these nutcases, if any, is usually offset by people who admire that positions these companies have taken against bigotry and discrimination.

hey, do us all a favor, why don't you 'good Christian people' all go and form your own little country?  preferably right in the middle of the Bermuda Triangle.

We all should try very hard to shop at local stores, not at behemoths like Home Depot. That said, everyone has a right to boycott according to their beliefs. I still do not buy gas at Exxon or BP. If Baptists want to boycott, please go right ahead. It is our right.

Go for it, Republicans. Boycott backers of the GOP.

Turns out all the wing nuts are going to heaven and don't need air transportation, home maintenance, or even a soda on the way.  We'll miss their comedy act, but not much else.

Most of our nation's current sickness can be traced to the years when "The Silent Majority" became the "Loudmouth Minority". They have caused the paralysis of Washington as well as caused the massive waste of time in conservative states legislators. These brainless people have their lawmakers wasting taxpayer money and time on useless social bills that are meant to control our lives, while all around them, our kids are falling behind, the bridges are crumbling, the roads are crumbling, the job situation needs more improvement. Dubya the Dumb's obstruction of stem cell research set our country's R&D back fifteen years, while other nations have forged ahead finding hope for ALS, Alzheimer's , and Parkinson's. These current bills to discriminate against anyone--gays, minorities--whatever will be struck down by the Supreme Court after states spend millions in lawyers' fees to defend the indefensible. The states can't lay for education and healthcare, but they can waste money on this garbage!!!??Most of the bills are written by the dumbest of the dumb, and are not even enforceable if they are NOT struck down. We The People need to get more active and prevent these people from being re-elected. We saw last election that, even when the Right Wing outliers had more backing by these religious hate groups, they were not elected. We just need to keep doing it.

I understand now why they moved Tom Watson's statue.  Next year, the legislature will erect the Ten Commandments monument, flanked by two fire pits (altars of stone).  Proposed legislation will be tested here.  If God sends fire to consume the legislation -- it shall not become law.

1st, church people need to stop boycotting every person they disagree with same goes for gays and liberals you ALL need to take the stick out of your a$$ and 2nd you companys need to stick to selling your crap and stay out of politics. problem solved

I wish all christians would just go ahead and boycott everybody and everything so same people wouldn't have to deal with them. Y'all go cower in your church basements and complain so the rest of us can get on with our lives.

There needs to be one added to that list.  All Christian families should boycott Disney World.  They have decided to stop providing funds to the Boy Scouts of America due to the decision on gay admittance. DW needs to keep its nose out of matters that should be of no concern to them. They are a family-oriented entertainment park, and many Christians spend their money there. Here's one that will not be going back.

BTW, Disney is owned by ABC so this should come as no surprise.

You and your group of bigots are not Christians

Your fear and hate of minority's is obvious too the rest of the country

It is obvious Delta Coke an Home Depot are not too worried about

Your attempted protest

White southern evangelical Christians are a minority

An the proud descendants of a culture that fought too keep slavery

Fought integration

Fought against woman's rights

And is fighting a loosing battle against the LGBT community

You should be labeled as a hate group

The good news is you always loose

Why does the Georgia Baptist Convention needs a lobbyist??? Time to revoke the tax exempt status of these religious organizations dabbling in politics, especially if they have enough money to pay for lobbyists!!!

What a coincidence. This fellow had 666 followers on twitter as of 11:35 pm.

Isn't it a little odd, anyway, that a church denomination would have a lobbyist? Somehow that seems out of touch with Jesus' teaching in the New Testament.

I say Let These self righteous Pretend Christian worshippers do as they Please. For they are only showing America and the American People just what Believers and followers of SATAN they really are.

They are such a confused and misguided LOT. All being led by many JUDAS GOATS among them.

Jesus would say of these Conservative Christian Claimers...." I Never Knew YOU" 


Satan would say...these are my Children of Darkness...Hatred is what Unites them and always bring together as one. I have succeeded with them many times before in America. this is just another one of those times.

These small minded hypocrites need to go pound sand.  I lived next to a couple of these Bible Thumpers who were on the new member committee of their church. Then it turned out they were swingers. They got run out of their neighborhood before for their swinging. Then they were spying in my house, the neighbors on all sides as well. That's when we all found out about the swinging and that he had an arrest record in Florida for Trespassing. He liked to join the HOA Grounds committee and go around and pretend to inspect peoples yards when he got caught peeping. Then the HOA kicked him off. Another old neighbor told me he now moved up to Canton. They will no doubt be parading as Holy Rollers, but they are really swingers.

If these protesting folks were beaten and left for dead on the roadside (as In the story of "The Good Samaritan," ), would they protest  if a gay couple tried to give assistance?

Oh, if only they would do so. They wouldn't survive long though. Without all of us liberal doctors life expectancy would plummet. After all, without evolutionary theory there would be no vaccines or antibiotics.

It is an even better way to show your disgust with racism and treason...wiping your @ss with the symbol of the confederacy.

Odd that they don't tape Ten Commandments to their car doors, homes, businesses, yet they demand it be displayed in public schools, courts, parks.

@WWTJD  That's pretty funny.  And probably not far from the truth.  However, I wouldn't recommend too many of the legislators being in the vicinity of the altar.  God might just do a two-for-one on them.

@MoistDawg   sorry to say but the heavy hitter companies like the three mentioned are the only thing that is standing between us and these nitwit false christians that want to turn this state into a theocracy with guns in every pew. In the future please make every one of these loonies publish which church they attend so we will all know which ones to avoid

Got news for you: They already tried boycotting Disney World because of their "Gay Days" more than a few days ago. And big surprise: It didn't work too well because no one even noticed the boycott!!! LMAO

@FarTrain Because conservatives did that several years ago over DW's decision to host Gay Days... and after a while the conservatives gave up because their kids wanted to go to DW.  LOL!

@Chris30338 Robert White,Exec Dir, of the GBC should be ashamed for hiring this nitwit to represent any Ga Baptists in any matter.He is a looney and I am becoming concerned about you also Mr White.

@CherokeeCounty or with the IRS' teaching about religious organizations with tax exempt status.
