The letter starts out innocently enough. Lakewood, CO Home Depot employee Timothy Noffsinger writes, “At The Home Depot® (THD) where I work, presentations have been posted on an employee bulletin board declaring June as LGBT History Month and calling for “INCLUSION.”
But that all-caps ‘inclusion’ in quotes is the first tip-off of the next-level douchebaggery to come.
Things devolve, and fast.
“Promoting LGBT lifestyles as “INCLUSION” demonstrates sexual confusion and amounts to preaching a message against God that requires employees to accept deviant behavior as normal and good. As an employee, I was surprised and dismayed to see THD preaching evil.”
Oh boy, one of these ones.
The letter goes on and on (and on), showing all the telltale signs of potential mental derangement gussied up by religious blinders.
Here are some of the more eye-rolling parts, though the whole thing basically induces one long, extended sigh:
“We should warn LGBT individuals that God will not tolerate those who destroy His order of creation…Truly, LGBT are destroying themselves and other people around them.”
“Jesus is however the Prince of Peace, the Author of Life and Liberty; and the sustainer of THD’s profits, and therefore our paychecks.”
“Our current prosperity blinds many from seeing the dead end reality facing the LGBT community, for arrogance against God brings self-destruction and destroys Liberty.”
If you have the stomach for it, here’s the full letter (warning: it’s way too long).
Timothy posted the letter to Facebook, and received such pearls of wisdom in response as:
“I am so sad to see them do this. We have stopped purchasing at Starbucks for the same reason. May the Father of our Lord, Jesus Christ, bless you.”
“WOW!!! Good for you Timothy!!! It takes real guts to stand up for one’s principles.”
Our sincere thoughts go out to everyone, gay or straight, who has to work with him. We imagine conversations tend to go like this:
Timothy: The Prince of Peace sustains life, gives us all that is good and demands our respect of God. Those who disobey be damned.
THD Manager: Dammit Tim, all I asked you is where you put that shipment of quarter inch nails.
