Timothy Noffsinger, a Home Depot worker in a town just west of Denver, says the company is preaching the religion of queer theory. His open letter shows how heartless and alienating American corporations have become and that they have no soul. He makes, indirectly, the argument for local economy and free markets, where in Chattanooga one should favor stores such as Floyd’s in Soddy-Daisy or East Ridge Hardware. Fully supporting Mr. Noffsinger’s bold assertions is his pastor, Denver Bible Church minister Bob Enyart: “To this home improvement retailer,” Mr. Enyart says, “diversity, respect, and tolerance do not apply to Bible-believing Christian employees. Timothy is right that THD is ‘preaching religion to its employees’ and that ‘Christians are ostracized by LGBT promotion.’”

DENVER, Colo. — At The Home Depot where I work, presentations have been posted on an employee bulletin board declaring June as LGBT History Month and calling for “INCLUSION.”
LGBT as we know stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, an acronym coined to describe a collective of people who practice and promote these four sexual behaviors, which are morally evil and self-destructive sexual deviations.
It is self-evident that what LGBT people practice and promote is perverse. Homesexuality denies God’s order of creation and works against nature and living a successful human life. God’s good and loving prescription for His creation plainly condemns all sexual behavior except between natural man and wife. Lumping these four behaviors together creates a political description for a religious movement, a movement that promotes evil.
Promoting LGBT lifestyles as “INCLUSION” demonstrates sexual confusion and amounts to preaching a message against God that requires employees to accept deviant behavior as normal and good. As an employee, I was surprised and dismayed to see THD preaching evil.
Religion in the workplace
To my fellow Christian employees, be careful not to fall into the trap of trying to be nicer than God. This is about love, not hate. LGBT behavior hurts people. Love tells the truth. God instructs us “Be holy as I am holy.” And it is written, “The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogance, and the evil way.”
Morals are boundaries. THD has boundaries with selective morality. Would THD include shoplifters in its “INCLUSION”? Of course not. Our employer rightly expects us to be honest and to observe and report all suspicion of theft, and the company takes measures to forestall and punish thieves.
We should warn LGBT individuals that God will not tolerate those who destroy His order of creation. Because He loves us, the Lord says “I will punish those who do evil.” Truly, LGBT are destroying themselves and other people around them. Our Creator’s relational, loving nature shows us the ways He provides for us to have a good life on earth and how to receive eternal life in glory with Him. It is written: “He made them male and female and declared that the two become one.”
Christianity’s alternative argument
God gave us our sexual natures and explains to us what is good and right about it. On the other hand, every deviant practice is bent on destroying God’s creation and refusing His care for us. LGBT individuals destroy themselves and others by bringing judgment upon themselves and a destructive influence on our community. No nation that embraces deviant sexual behavior has ever, nor can ever, survive as free. By making this presentation, THD is promoting the destruction of Freedom, Liberty, and our American way of life.
Jesus is the Author of Life, the Prince of Peace, and the source of Liberty. All other religions bring people to darkness and tyranny. Thus, LGBT leads to death, spiritual death now and, so often, an early physical death. THD is helping that “progress” as their recent poster shows (top photo), for the sake of profit.
Morals are boundaries. Do you individually set your boundaries according to God’s loving-kindness and saving principles of goodness, or merely according to civil law, or least of all according to foolish and misplaced personal desire? As in that poster, is THD approving of rioting to get noticed, to force acceptance? That’s the way of a child throwing a tantrum.
Those who promote LGBT hate God, determined to be a god unto themselves. They seek to control not only the law, not only behavior, not only speech, but even individual thought! Thus LGBT promotion is a vehicle for the tyrant’s advance (“progress”). And the attack on our Liberty is carefully orchestrated, first by perverting language: gay, hate crime; as subtle changes move people to accept evil. Then massive changes like redefining marriage quickly undermine society.
Language is abused by those promoting LGBT in an attempt to legitimize evil behavior and to excuse hatred of God and even hatred of themselves. They call all who oppose them “haters” to intimidate. In the blame game, you accuse others of what you do. No one, let alone Christians, should enable, nor be codependent on, evildoers. In this poster, THD goes further, setting up its appeal for LGBT as though it were a noble movement of freedom fighters, making the perverse out to be normal. LGBT is presented as a long downtrodden group struggling for their rights. The opposite is true. There is no right to murder, to kidnap, to rob, to rape, or to embezzle; and there is no right to L, G, B, or T, not even behind closed doors. Moral relativism cannot be contained.
This poster presents classic propaganda: associating good (selling supplies for building and remodeling) with evil (perverse sexual behavior), to trick people into assuming moral equivalence. THD does this under color of employer authority.
People who hate good impose tyranny on those who hate evil. LGBT seeks to impose its religion through government, having no valid justification for their behavior. They pull others into their troubles, or into supporting their lifestyle, and try to force the rest of us to quietly approve of them. THD is their accomplice.
Foundations define society and guide outcomes. Our nation was generally founded on Christian principles. The Liberty “We” Americans revere could have sprung up in history by no other principles. For only when most people demonstrate control from within, as God’s prescription enables, can a society maintain Liberty.
As a Christian, it is my God-given duty and pleasure to fight against evil by speaking the truth. And as far as Federal Law protects me as a citizen to be a Christian and live accordingly, I expect THD to honor that. The company now, not surprisingly, has made it clear that it would never designate a month, or even a day, to declare the good news of Christ on their bulletin boards. Jesus is however the Prince of Peace, the Author of Life and Liberty; and the sustainer of THD’s profits, and therefore our paychecks.
Home Depot in culture war
Preaching its pro-homosexal message, THD takes the destructive side in our present culture war. Because THD promotes all this evil, it undermines professionalism in the workplace.
