What's Good for the Corporations Is Good for America
In our New Oxford Notes (Oct. 2005) we noted that of the Fortune 500 companies, over 150 companies bought ads and commercials in the "gay" media. It was an all-time high. Even Coors, a major funder of conservative causes, bought into the "gay" media. You've heard the slogan, "What's good for General Motors is good for America." General Motors also bought into the "gay" media.
Homosexuals generally have higher incomes than heterosexuals, and homosexuals have a lot of disposable income, and the Fortune 500 companies want to tap into that market. It's good for business.
According to the Chicago Tribune (June 30), fewer than one-quarter of the Fortune 500 companies offered same-sex partner benefits in 2000. But in 2006, 51 percent of the Fortune 500 companies offered same-sex partner benefits. You see the way things are going.
And 86 percent of the Fortune 500 companies prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation.
Most of the demos, the common people, oppose same-sex "marriage" or civil unions (i.e., same-sex partner benefits). But the corporations in conjunction with the liberals will have their way with same-sex "marriage" eventually.
We know that the liberals are enemies of traditional Catholicism, but you may also want to consider if corporate capitalism is also an enemy.

|The fact that corporate capitalism is the enemy not only of Catholicism, but also of the family, ain't news to me. For over twenty years, the cost of living in most states renders it impossible for a mother to stay at home with her children. The message was clear to me even back when I was a neo-pagan: want kids?, better have big bucks.

|I've known many single people who have no kids to raise or tuitions to pay who are still not wealthy even though they work hard at worthy occupations. Nor do I recall Christ saying anything like "Duh!" before he would offer us wisdom.

|It would be interesting to know why homosexuals have more disposable income. Has this "fact" been verified? Where and by whom? I don't doubt it for a moment, but would like to know how it was determined. If homosexuals spend more, shouldn't they also be making more? How would anybody determine the average salary of heterosexuals and homosexuals for comparison purposes? Surely one's sexual preference is not noted on one's income tax form.
The morality of corporate America has never been anything to brag about and that has been well known for a long time. What did Christ say about the rich? Read it and weep you wealthy buggers.

|Charlemagne -- Duh! Homosexuals have more disposable incomes because they DO NOT normally have kids. Thus, they need not pay out for necessities of food, clothing, tuition, etc. Hello!
