Stop Supporting Anti-Gay Hate Groups

Christian Values Network (CVN) is an online shopping network that raises money for many different religious-affiliated groups from the purchases of products of over 600 companies (such as Target, Netflix, Avon.) There are many legitimate religious groups that can earn money from your purchases, but five of these groups have been declared anti-gay hate groups by the Southern Poverty Law Center - Focus on the Family, Family Research Council, Summit Ministries, Abiding Truth Ministries, and the Liberty Counsel. These groups are discriminatory and encourage violence against LGBT people, all while promoting their bigoted missions in the name of religion.

Recently, a Change.org petition successfully persuaded Microsoft to end it's relationship with CVN. Instead of focusing on asking the 600+ groups to pull out of their partnerships with CVN, it would be more beneficial to all parties for CVN to remove it's partnership with these 5 hate groups. Please urge CVN to stop supporting anti-gay hate groups!

      I believe that God or whoever is your higher power, does not encourage individuals to judge one another. I don't have to like what you do to live in peace with you. Try a little love. God is Love!

      Supporting anti-gay groups, even indirectly is simply unacceptable given all the research and human rights issues concerning GLBTQ people.

      It is also fundamentally terrible for your businesses--many are supported by gays, plus, some of your companies have been given high marks from human rights groups for your non-discriminatory policies with gays!!! You can't have it both ways.

      Most assuredly, CVN is one of the groups with relatively benign names whose main mission is actually to spread extremist hatred. And, they are a "religious, Christian" group. I certainly do not want to see any companies I support funding this or similar groups, nor do I wish to have any company I support supporting the extremist religious views of any one religious group. Until you correct this practice, I and many others who do have the means to buy consumer goods, will boycott your products, plus I will spread the word to any other people I know.
