Boycott threat for Atlanta companies opposing anti-gay bills

Add this share

The state's legion of religious anti-gays, still stung over their “religious freedom” bills getting stalled at the Georgia Capitol, are now threatening to lash out at companies that opposed them.

Yes, the anti-gays are saber rattling about a boycott. Michael Griffin, senior pastor at Liberty Baptist Church in Hartwell and a lobbyist for the Georgia Baptist Convention, is so angry that he can't spit out 140-chracter rants fast enough. Atlanta-based companies that opposed the bills in Georgia, or similar ones in Arizona, include Delta, IHG, Home Depot and Coke.
