What do Toyota, Starbucks, Delta Airlines and Apple have in common? They all received perfect scores this year for their homosexual-friendly policies from the Human Rights Campaign's Corporate Equality Index, according to the Christian Post. The report, released every fall from the nation's largest gay-rights organization, rates companies on their practices and policies for LGBT workers. This year, 615 companies were rated, and of those, 337 received the top rating of 100 percent. Joe Solmonese, president of HRC, says the rating is "not an award" but rather a tool designed to improve workplace conditions for LGBT people; however, author Dr. Michael Brown says the real implication is to blacklist companies unless they comply with the policies. And consumers are caught in the crossfire: Pro-family groups and individuals who disagree with the homosexual agenda are finding it increasingly harder not to support corporations that don't share their values, he said.
