Here Are The Facts On The Allstate/Matt Barber Situation
Earlier I wrote concerning Allstate's firing of Matt Barber because he expressed his Christian beliefs concerning homosexuality. Some of our supporters have been told that there is no truth to what we wrote earlier. Below are the facts.
The State of Illinois (Department of Employment Security) conducted a thorough investigation into Allstate's actions and ruled, without equivocation, in favor of Mr. Barber. The investigation determined: "The claimant (Mr. Barber) was discharged from Allstate Insurance Company because an outside organization had complained about an article he had written while on his own time."
The State's investigation further concluded that Allstate intentionally chose to terminate Barber's employment for writing the article despite the fact that he engaged in no misconduct whatsoever: "The term misconduct means the deliberate and willful violation of a reasonable rule or policy of the employer In this case, the claimant's action which resulted in his discharge was not deliberate and willful." This determination, issued March 8, 2005, was not appealed by Allstate. To see the official document, Click here .
On May 26, 2005, Attorney David Gibbs III of the Christian Law Association filed suit in federal court against Allstate Insurance Company on behalf of Mr. Barber. He had been employed as a manager in the corporate security division at the company's Chicago area headquarters. The case, No. 05-cv-03152, has been assigned to Judge Amy St. Eve, and an initial case status hearing is scheduled for July 20, 2005.
The firing of Mr. Barber is in keeping with Allstate's promotion of the homosexual agenda including homosexual marriage. A few examples:
· Gave $10,000 to the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), a homosexual organization which promotes homosexual marriage. Click here
· Supports homosexual websites with advertising dollars. Click here
· Gave $5,000 to the Indiana University office of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Student Support Services. Click here
· Gave $15,000 to the Gay & Lesbian Center in Los Angeles.- Click here
Most Allstate agents are well-respected persons in their community. Some of them probably had no knowledge of Allstate's promotion of the homosexual agenda. Now that they do, they should insist that Allstate stop promoting the homosexual agenda, including homosexual marriage. Please contact your Allstate agent and ask him or her to contact Allstate and ask Allstate to stop supporting homosexual advocacy groups. You can find a listing of Allstate agents in your area by clicking here .
If you haven't done so, please take action by sending an email to Allstate Chairman Edward M. Liddy to register your complaint and demand a public apology and reinstatement for Mr. Barber with back pay. You should also ask him to stop supporting homosexual organizations.

You're in good hands with Allstate...puke.
So, do we cancel our insurance? WASUP?
It's not their "Hands" that I am worried about:)
As far as I know, GEICO is A-OK. Unless the Gekko is gay.
OK Matt now quit and go work for there compitition!
He may be have you seen the green suit he wares.V/p>
Homosexual Agenda Ping.
More on Allstate, their promotion of the "gay" agenda, and their former employee who has been vindicated.
Freepmail me if you want on/off this pinglist.
GEICO's almost as bad. They hand out free speed enforcement devices to police departments and (at least they used to) cancel your insurance if you got a speeding ticket and had a radar detector in your car.
I thought Warren Buffett owned GEICO. Another RAT.
Could be wrong, but I think I heard it was Soros, not Buffet. I know for a fact they support Dims.(big time)
Oh well, did a Google and it's Berkshire Hathaway. Buffet it is.
No, the gecko's not gay. Remember the ad with the woman running in the fields spinning the gecko around, saying "I love you"?
GEICO has a great ad campaign, and they aren't commies like Progressive. But when I needed to insure a new car, I was hoping GEICO didn't have the best deal for me because I am still sore about them bailing on Dr. Laura when the Gay-stapo went after her in 1999. I still don't shop at Sears or buy anything made by Procter & Gamble (which is really difficult -- they make a lot of great stuff).
Does anyone have any idea what this would have to do with enhancing shareholder value? Of course, absolutely nothing! This is simply the promotion of someone within Allstate's agenda. Whoever it is, is probably collecting a fat enough salary that they could donate similar amounts themselves, but nooooooooo they've got to raid company funds for that.

This is how to hammer All State. If you own stock, have an insurance policy or your mutual funds owns All State stock, send an email to the board and demand they stop this BS. These donations dilute profits and raise the cost of insurance, and they add nothing to the bottom line.
My Allstate coverage expires July 11th. I am not renewing. My new insurance company will be Farmers Insurance. I will inform my Allstate agent exactly why I am not renewing with them. Let them fund their perverted friends with someone else's money!
