When I fly American Airlines, I’m not concerned with what AA thinks about LGTB rights. What I’m concerned about is getting to my destination safely and on time – and that my luggage doesn’t get lost.

If I drank coffee, I would expect a flavorful hot cup when I go through the drive-in at Starbucks. I do use Facebook — and all I want is to connect with my friends and listeners. When I buy from Amazon, I expect my stuff to arrive in good shape.

I do not need political activism from the companies I use.

In fact, I don’t want it, and lots of other people agree. I don’t remember voting for Facebook for any elected office – I just voted for them as a vendor when I signed up for an account. If their CEO wants to be political, that’s fine. He has free speech. But it makes me furious when a company I use threatens to pull out of a state over a political disagreement.

Why should I care what PayPal CEO Dan Schulman thinks about gay rights?

The PayPal boss, or Howard Schultz of Starbucks, or Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook has a right to think what he wants. But so do I. And I stand with North Carolina. Gay activists in America have plenty of rights, but urinating in the bathroom of their choice is over the line. I don’t care what gender they “identify” with. They are what they are.

Target is the latest to announce that their restrooms are opened up to “gender-identification.” All I want Target to do is put those DVD sets on sale and have a good selection of sheets and kitchen gadgets. When I go to Target, I will have to be on my guard in the restroom – if I ever use their restroom again. I wish Target – a store I really like – had not gone political. Who knew Target’s bosses were against traditional values? How does this help them increase their bottom line?

On the other hand, I don’t expect these left-wing CEOs and companies to care about my views on the issue. I expect them to provide me with a product or service. Then, I want them to shut up.

Some of the companies I’d just as soon NOT DO BUSINESS with – if I had a choice.

The list of left-wing business just keeps growing – and we can’t avoid them all. Facebook killed off  MySpace, and if you want to “connect” on social media, you have to use Facebook. But I will never (personally) spend a penny with Zuckerberg because he infuriates me with his political meddling.

I don’t use Starbucks because I’m not a coffee drinker. I may meet someone there, but I try to not spend any money there. As for PayPal, I have an account that I only use when selling books. I might look for an alternate vendor if I write another book.

Here are some other companies and rock stars that want to meddle in my right to have a gender-specific restroom:

• The National Football League
• The National basketball Association
• Apple
• Walt Disney Co.
Marvel Studios (yes, comic book companies are liberal)
• Target
• Bruce Springsteen
• Pearl Jam
• Ringo Starr

Enough of this.

It’s time for companies to come forward that support religious freedoms.

A company we can all enjoy.

I know of Chick-fil-A and Hobby Lobby as champions of religious freedoms. There are many more, but they tend to stay quiet. If they will come forward, I will promote them as best I can and try to use their services.

Please note that what companies like Facebook and Target are saying is that they are in open opposition to traditional, Christian values. Starbucks is denying science – since you cannot change a boy into a girl. PayPal is opposing the traditional family. These companies and the others are supporting depravity that is sending our country into a cultural spiral. They are being openly anti-Christian.

This silly photo appeared in newspapers. But why do we have to have gender-neutral restrooms to serve everybody?

I’m waiting for morally responsible companies to come out and tell me who they are. I want to do business with corporations that are better than Facebook. I’m not asking them to make threats about pulling out of states where they oppose duly enacted laws. That is what liberals do and it’s silly.

In the meantime, I have one request for CEOs of left-wing companies and corporations. Shut up about politics and don’t lose my luggage.

    Dear Lynn
    It’s time for all Christians to hang together and boycott firms and other entities that are putting presser on N.C. to remove the bathroom bill or they will not do business in N.C. An attack on one (State) is an attack on all Christians. Christians should not attend NFL games, drink Pepsi, cancel their Pay Pal account, etc. Two can play the economic game and in addition attend shareholder meetings a put forth a proposal to fire the CEO, Christians need to hang together or they will be picked off one by one and hung separately.
