I'm so sorry to see that method has chosen to ostracize Christians and others who hold marriage in high regard and instead take a side in the culture war. Due to the poor decision to take part in a "Pride" event, I will not be buying any more method products.

Drew,

At method, we are not about ostracizing people, be it the Christian community or the LGBT community. We like to think that our products and our “people against dirty” community bring people together behind the common values of caring for your home, family, and the planet. We are sorry to hear that we have lost you as a consumer.

I, too, am baffled by this choice, and can only attribute it to your spending too much time in the Bay Area echo chamber. For what it's worth, I'm not opposed to gay marriage at all (went to my first same-sex ceremony almost ten years ago), but I don't see a connection with cleaning products and gay rights. Your advocacy on environmental issues makes sense, but advocacy on gay rights seems as irrelevant to your product line as would taking a stance on abortion or gun control. What were you thinking? I'm not ready to drop you as a customer, but if I see any more of this and I'll drop you for one of your competitors that is just as earth-friendly but less politically vocal.
