Transcript liMIUMil ¥ voice L THIRTY YEARS OF NEWS FOR YOUR LIFE. AND YOUR STYLE www.houstonvoica.com FOSTER PARENTS: Gays may not be out. Page 3 MARRIAGE: House also bans civil unions. Page 3 Microsoft, Proctor & Gamble deny caving to religious leaders Companies reject claims they were bullied by boycotts By RYAN LEE A pair of religious conservatives pounded their chests last week, claiming victory in two separate attempts to force Fortune 100 companies to abandon their gay-friendly policies. But officials from both companies — Microsoft and Procter & Gamble — deny they caved into pressure from threatened boycotts. On April 21, the Washington state Senate voted 25- 24 to reject a non-discrimination bill that would have outlawed bias in employment, housing, public accommodations, credit and insurance based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Earlier that day the Stranger, a weekly alternative newspaper in Seattle, reported that Microsoft stopped lobbying in support of the bill and changed its official position from supportive to "neutral" after two meetings in February between Microsoft officials and Rev. Ken Hutcherson. Hutcherson — leader of a "mega-church" in Redmond, Wash., and a vocal critic of same-sex marriage — could not be reached for comment by press time. But the day after the vote, he told the New York Times that Microsoft "backed off" from supporting the bill when he threatened a national boycott against the company "I told them I was going to give them something to be afraid of Christians about," Hutcherson said. But Microsoft officials, including Chair Bill Gates and CEO Steve Ballmer, flatly denied Hutcherson played any role in Microsoft switching its position to neutral. "We met with many people in the community, Rev. After Microsoft came under intense criticism for dropping its support of a gay-friendly non-discrimination ordinance in Washington state, Bill Gates said the company may back the bill again next year.
