Activists Trying to Stomp on Microsoft for Gay Rights Bill Stance
SEATTLE -- Microsoft Corp., one of the earliest companies to extend benefits to gay employees, now finds itself in the crosshairs of angry activists for rescinding support for gay rights legislation in its home state.
Critics say the world's No. 1 software maker caved to pressure from an NFL linebacker-turned-local pastor who had threatened to launch a nationwide boycott, and tried to tiptoe away from a bill it had previously supported.
Last week, the measure failed in Washington state's Senate by a single vote.
The gay rights nazis are hammering Microsoft for this defeat. Contact Microsoft and tell them thanks!
