a new place to shop

As if the religious right weren’t apoplectic enough after last week’s Supreme Court decision legalizing private consensual sodomy, I can’t wait to see their reaction to the announcement that that bastion of rural couture and puritanism, Wal-Mart, announced yesterday that it has added sexual orientation to its corporate antidiscrimination policy.

With this formal change to Wal-Mart’s policy, nine of the ten largest Fortune 500 companies now bar discrimination against gay and lesbian employees; the tenth, Exxon Mobil Corporation, revoked the nondiscrimination policy and domestic partner benefits already in place at Mobil when the latter was acquired by Exxon in 1999.


I forsee a lot of chest pain complaints from the bible belt! Woo! *grin*
