Shell's support of the homosexual agenda.

Posted Tue February 17, 2009 7:06 pm, by Andy A. written to Shell Oil Company Headquarters

I will not allow you to use my money to support the homosexual agenda.

Shell Oil should become neutral in the culture war.
I have really enjoyed using my Shell Master Card to get discounts on Shell gasoline but now because of your sick policy of supporting perversion and anti-family behavior I'll have to close my account.

I waited your table the other night and totally stuck my gay thumb in
your food.



by Brian B. Posted Sat March 7, 2009 @ 4:14 PM

Wow, never really new there were so many other gay folk on the site.
Here I was thinking I was special and the only one...

Everyone else has lists of other companies the OP must not patronize
because of the "gay agenda"... My question is, does Andy wear clothes?

Fashion design (like basically everything else that makes money) is a
field dominated by men. Mostly gay ones.

Please! Culture war? How long has this war been going on? and how
many different cultures are involve? Stop creating something that
isn't. Get a life. We are in a depression, people are losing jobs,
homes, and life as they know it. And you are worrying about who are
supporting gay causes? Guess you now will be angry when you find out
what church people attend, who they voted for, and what they eat for
breakfast each morning.

by HamDude Posted Wed February 25, 2009 @ 1:07 AM

He does realize he is on the internet? If this site had Google Ads
then there would be ads for gay stuff since it would pickup gay as a
keyword. Google search Gay Agenda vs Straight Agenda and you see there
is more of a Gay Agenda on the internet. So Mr. Andy A. I think you
should cancel your internet membership as well.

Good, the gays supporters don't want business from "your kind"

No more discounts for you!

black agenda all these years.

But what about bisexuals?. We're the ones you really need to worry
about.. And the bdsm community, them too. you know, despite the fact
that we donate time, money, blood, organs. hope you never need a
blood transfusion or organ transplant, let alone a heart transplant.
That heart you're getting? It's probably coming from someone who is or
supports LGBT.

Oh, and what about pagans? Wow, I guess I'd really screw with you.
I'm a Bisexual polyamorous pagan kinkster, and I shop at allll the
same places you do.

We all have the right to support what we feel is right.

However companies ALSO have the right to support what is right and in
the best interest of their workers.

We all deserve the right to be happy and live our lives as we see fit
wether straight or gay.

If you truly believe in the word of god then you shall not judge

Its not your place to judge or make judgements against what others
choose to do.

Christians believe that there is a final judgement and if you truly
believe you should have faith that people who follow this lifestyle
will have to answer for it in the after life.

Its neither your place NOR your duty to judge them now, pass laws to
punish them now etc etc.

We have free will because it was placed upon us.

I believe personally that we all should have the right to be happy, be
married, have health insurance, be able to foster and adopt children.

But you know thats my belief and I was raised in a christian household
but I was able to read the bible and determine for myself how it was
to interpretted.

In life we have the option to believe what we want buy what we want,
spend what we want, and live life how we want.
It's the company's option to choose their own agenda adn your option
to spend with them or elsewhere.

by Donno Posted Thu February 19, 2009 @ 10:10 AM

millions of people attempting to live their own lives without others
dictating how to think and what to feel.

There currently is a trial going on in the matter of a person named
Ryan Skipper who was living the gay agenda (aka his life). Two young
guys befriended him, stabbed him to death and then slit his throat.
They dumped his body on the road and stole his car.

One of the murderers said he felt no remorse for the crime because the
world will be better off with one less "f******t".

Yep, the behavior of being mutilated and discarded on the road like a
piece of trash really threatens the traditional family model.

I note that you did not include examples in your complaint, just
general vitriol. Could you be more specific?


by mikedthornton Posted Thu February 19, 2009 @ 8:06 AM

Andy, I appreciate your willingness to stand up for what you believe
and speak publicly about it. I disagree with you for billions of
reasons, but I do admire you standing by your convinctions.

Yesterday, I bought gas at Shell and also got a carwash.

by smileyeagle Posted Thu February 19, 2009 @ 2:00 AM

I guess you also can't use Chevron, Holiday Inn, Wyndham Hotels, Best
Buy, clorox, dell... and the list goes on and on.

and on an even lighter note.
Who told you about the agenda, that was supposed to be a secret...
damnit, now that it's out our plans for world domination will be much
harder to accomplish ;)

Though, I think, sense it's now out there anyway, that it is
worthwhile to post a sample gay agenda (every gay person has their own
agenda). Mine is-
-go to my part time graveyard shift thursday through sunday nights, do
my job to the best of my ability, use the downtime during the shift to
do homework.
-go to school monday through friday mornings, studying accounting...
hey, it runs in the family, I'll be a third generation accountant.
Right now my biggest stress is the two tests I have to take this
- if I have the time I enjoy movies and video games. I quite enjoy
Sim City, Roller Coaster Tycoon, The Sims, Final Fantasy and Fable.
Sci-fi movies are also great, I'm already counting down the days to
the next Star Trek movie comes out.
- at least once or twice a week I try to make time to read from the
New Testament. Knowing of Christ's love and forgiveness is comforting
for me (and yes, I do believe that Christ loves me for who I am).
- oh, and on top of all that, I'm trying to get a date... not easy
when you work 32 hours a week graveyard and take 15 credit hours at
school, but I know that Mr. Right is out there somewhere, I just need
to find him.

there it is... my gay agenda... be afraid, be very afraid... that is
the agenda I'll be using to take over the world...

Oh, and you are smart for not using Shell... their gas sucks.

Gimme a break here, dude.

My guess is that the only contact you've ever had with a homosexual is
a picture of Liberace.

The "homosexual agenda" is a myth perpetuated by small minded, poorly
educated people who are absolutely terrified of anybody and anything
doesn't fit their infinitely tiny worldview. People just like you.

I suggest you go out and actually meet a gay person or three instead
of buying into a bunch of crap that has no bearing in reality.

Pervision?? Anti-Family behavior?

I FORMALLY invite you to MY HOME Andy to see what a REAL homosexual
family is. I am a SINGLE (LESBIAN) mother of THREE amazing,
honor-roll, high achieving SONS!!!!! They were made the old-fashioned
way because I ATTEMPTED YOUR LIFESTYLE to be ACCEPTED!! Their dad is a
loser, abuser & I'm sure YOU support his hedonistic lifestyle to THIS
DAY!! Hope you are enjoying it with your TAX DOLARS!!
MY SONS will be EVERYTHING YOU ARE NOT!! Thank God & oh yes, he is a
big part of our life too!

So, can you live up TO YOUR WORDS?? Please come - please visit - you
have a formal invitation to see what you find so perverse & so
ANTI-FAMILY. Bet your family isn't nearly as awesome as mine!!

The only agenda I thought the gay community had was to be treated like
everyone else.

It is very scary to see just how small and narrow the human mind can

I'm sure if the OP looks hard enough he can find someplace where
integration has not yet taken place and the KKK still rules. Perhaps
the OP would be more comfortable there than with the rest of us.


great response...I applaud you. by dulynoted (aka duttycalls) Thu February 19, 2009 @ 1:40 PM

by Nate. Posted Wed February 18, 2009 @ 5:41 PM

This is ridiculous. When will people come to recognize that Gay folks
are just as human as everybody else?
While it may sound acceptable, it is just another form of undesirable
discrimination that we will look back on as horrible in years to come.

Let's put this in perspective. Imagine you are living in the 60's.
I'll edit your letter to reflect "issues of the times".

Shell's support of the civil rights movement.
Shell Oil should become neutral in the culture war.
I have really enjoyed using my Shell Master Card to get discounts on
Shell gasoline but now because of your sick policy of supporting the
rights of African Americans and school integration, I'll have to close
my account.

Writing the above letter would make you sound like a racist bigot in
today's times.

The whites learned to accept, and the same process is occurring for
the LGBT community. We need to embrace these people, and give them
equal rights.
I know that 25 years from now, we will look back on this homophobia as
a horrible thing, and anybody who still looks down on homosexuals will
be considered servilely politically incorrect.

by dulynoted (aka duttycalls) Posted Wed February 18, 2009 @ 2:56 PM

Well to tell you the truth I am surprised at your perspective on this
because various companies that make the foods you eat or mfg the
clothes you wear, or provide the utilities you use be supported by the
homesexual agenda also.

So I guess this means you will not be using any of the above articles
or items either?
Let us know how this turns out for you.

I use Mobile, but only because they don't use ethanol.

As for who the employees sleep with.. Well I don't care about that
either. Most of the time I pay at the pump so as far as I know they
could have Klingons or Zaphod Beeblebrox inside and I wouldn't know.
(tho that'd be really cool!)

But as for what they're doing at home in bed... I have more things to
worry about.

And TECHNICALLY you don't really know their sexual preference (unless
you associate with them when they're not working).

Unless you... 1) See them having sex or 2) Hear them talking about
having sex (neither of which are appropriate at work for any sexual
preference)... you can only *ASSUME* what they're doing and what
gender they're doing it with.

Frankly... I have other things to worry about... like the cost of gas
... than to start worrying about their sexual experiences.


by MA Cunningham Posted Wed February 18, 2009 @ 12:35 PM

Is that all it takes? Someone has a value or belief different than
yours so you tell them you won't patronize them anymore and they just

In most states, it is legal to not hire someone, fire them, evict
them, all because they are gay. COMPLETELY LEGAL. Thank goodness I
live in Minnesota, where that isn't legal (although I'm sure it still

the employer in lots of trouble. Really, I'm sure that particular

Anti-family behavior?? Please explain to me just WHY being gay is
anti-family?? I am gay... my partner and I have a 12 year old
daughter, who is happy, healthy, and loved!! she is very well
adjusted, has lots and lots of friends, Loves her "2 dads", as well as
her very large extended families, and everyone loves her. She gets
very high grades in school, participates in several after school
activities, and is class VP. She is open and honest with us, and knows
she is unconditionally loved!!

So please... I beg you... just WHAT is anti-family about that?????
Also, please tell me, what business is it of yours how my daughter is
raised?? She is MUCH better adjusted than almost ALL bof the kids in
her class, and only 1 of 3 kids in a class of 28 that comes from a 2
parent home!!! If you ask me, simply from the statistics, it is the
straight people that are anti-family (If you look at the statistics

I am SURE Shell will be heartbroken to see you go.... I will help them
to get over it... Next time I get gas, I will make sure my partner and
I get a Shell mastercard, and will tell all my friends to do the
