Susan Berry reports at Breitbart.com:
Office Depot has refused to print copies of a pro-life prayer on the grounds that to do so violates company policy of printing material that "advocates the persecution of people who support abortion rights."
"Karen Denning of Office Depot defended her company’s refusal to make copies of the prayer, stating that company policy forbids 'the copying of any type of material that advocates any form of racial or religious discrimination or the persecution of certain groups of people'," Berry reports.
Office Depot "also prohibits copying any type of copyrighted material," Denning added, according to Berry. "The flier contained material that advocates the persecution of people who support abortion rights," Breitbart quotes Denning as saying.
Comment: In my view, if Office Depot wants to go on record as supporting the documented fascist inhumanity of Planned Parenthood, that is Office Depot's ill-advised decision to make.
Office Depot should not be legally attacked for this policy -- this is their business and their property.
But people who support the humanity and dignity of human beings -- red and yellow, black and white, including the diversity and dignity of preborn human beings -- have every right to take their business elsewhere.
In addition, pro-humanity activist groups would do well to educate Office Depot on the corporate inhumanity of their policies in regard to Planned Parenthood. We in the Pearcey household will look to humanity-affirming alternatives so long as Office Depot enables this kind of gross inhumanity.
Let me be clear: So that love, truth, and humanness might grow, evil should be discriminated against -- indeed, evil must be discriminated against.
I hope Office Depot sees the light of day soon. Bravo to those individuals or groups who help that happy day come to pass.
