Hate Group Targets Microsoft, HP: There's a fundamental (no pun intended) difference between lobbying a company to provide somthing for a stakeholder group and lobbying a company to stop providing the same thing to others. If religious bigots like Ken Hutcherson were pressing Microsoft and HP to support a civil rights bill that granted Christians freedom from employment discrimination I wouldn't protest. But Hutcherson is trying to persuade those companies (and Boeing and Nike and others) not to support a Washington state bill that would grant such freedoms to gays and lesbians. Kudos to those companies for sticking to their principles.
