So it is written
Big Oil is on America's side:
ExxonMobil shareholders on Wednesday rejected a proposal to add “sexual orientation” to the company’s written anti-discrimination policy. Although this was the eighth year in a row that such a proposal has been voted down, homosexuality advocates see a ray of hope:I bet they stand alone -- with their buttocks firmly against the wall, lest some radical homosexual activist try to "pierce the corporate veil," if you know what I mean. I, for one, am honored to have such a steadfast ally in the culture wars, and America should be proud to know its sons are fighting for such a noble cause. So fill 'er up -- FOR JESUS! Praise Him!
According to a report from the PlanetOut Network, a record 34.6 percent of shares were voted in favor of the policy this year, an increase from 29.4 percent in 2005.
Joe Solmonese, president of the Human Rights Campaign, said ExxonMobil “stands alone” among the top 50 U.S. companies in refusing to adopt a written policy prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.
