Pick A Side, Any Side

Pick A Side, Any Side
According to The New York Times the founder of Microsoft indicated recently that Microsoft may change its position, again, and support lesbian and gay rights.

Pick a side Bill, any side. Just choose one and stick with it.

Although Microsoft's waffling may seem like a good thing for the lesbian and gay community, it doesn't appear that way to me. I mean, since Microsoft had recently changed its stance after years of supporting the gay community and then abruptly changed it because repressive "Christians" may reduce their financial support by not purchasing Microsoft products any longer, then for Gates to indicate something different... The truth be told: the only thing on Gates' mind is money, not what is right, just and fair...just money.

I think Microsoft has finally divulged where they stand: on the fence. Fence-sitting is the easy way out for those who do not stand for anything at all. Microsoft cannot be trusted as a faithful ally to the gay Christian community. They serve mammon, not God.

Bill Gates has proven time and again that he is loyal to no one but himself (and his money).

Wake up queers. Open your eyes. Otherwise you will be prey to every kind of deception.

Microsoft Turns Back On Anti-discrimination Bill

Microsoft's CEO sent an e-mail to employees breaking the news that Microsoft has no intentions of supporting equality for all regardless of sexual orientation because it is not within Microsoft's objectives this year, which is to dominate the software world and make billions more dollars for Bill.

Published on and written by Associated Press writer Elizabeth M. Gillespie on Saturday was the tale of the greedy giant who sat out on the anti-discrimination bill because it would be bad for business. What do you expect from a company built by a man who worships the buck? ...and as we know, will stop at nothing to get it - even a call to do what is right.

Well if queers in Seattle can't even get a bill passed for equitable and fair housing and employment for GLBT persons, then gay marriage seems completely out of the question.

And if Microsoft is saying - in so many words - that it doesn't give a damn about standing up for equal rights because doing so may bring down profit margins then Seattlites may need to take a closer look at their long-time neighbor and ask some important questions.
