As a Christian and a consumer, I am one of 41 million faith-based consumers who spend over $2 trillion annually to grow our economy. Millions of faith-based consumers use your products and services.
You have threatened economic punishment on North Carolina merely because its legislature passed a common-sense bathroom bill that honored the expectation of privacy for women and girls in public restrooms. The legislation did nothing to prevent any private business or corporation—including yours—from establishing any usage policy you choose for restrooms in your offices and manufacturing facilities. This is NOT a business issue.
Your company markets and sells products and services to millions of Christians and people of faith, and you no doubt employ many Christians. However, your recent attacks accusing North Carolinians of bigotry shows a total lack of respect for inclusion and the legitimate concerns and views of people of faith.
You and your company claim to champion diversity and inclusion, but that inclusion apparently does not include people of faith. Your appeals to diversity and inclusion are just a smoke screen for imposing your opinions on people of faith by extorting compliance from any state that challenges your liberal political orthodoxy.
Your recent attacks on North Carolina have occurred despite the fact your corporation does business in China, which has a one-child policy that has led to the infanticide of innocent girls. You also do business in the Middle East, where Saudi Arabia and other countries imprison and execute gays and lesbians. Yet you somehow claim you will punish North Carolina because it protects women and girls from having men enter their bathrooms and locker rooms.
I am a faith-based consumer and I urge you to be more inclusive of your faith-based customers. Stick to business issues such as taxes and regulation. And stop attacking North Carolina’s bathroom bill and religious freedom legislation in Georgia and other states.
Why this is important
North Carolina has become ground zero in the war on Judeo-Christian values.
The radical left and gay lobby has coerced many of America’s top companies to pull business from the state unless their bathroom law is repealed.
Stand with us and we’ll send this message to each CEO who is making North Carolina Ground Zero. Sign the petition and tell these CEOs that you support this common-sense legislation and ask them to be more inclusive of faith-based customers and stop attacking religious freedom legislation.
