Microsoft Dumps Anti-Gay Advisor

This very interesting 365gay.com report reveals that "Microsoft announced Friday that it has severed ties with Ralph Reed, a conservative Republican lobbyist who once headed the Christian Coalition". This, and statements from Microsoft, appears to show that the company has quickly reversed its novel 'neutral' stance on LGBT issues which I wrote about here; it's amazing how a little timely fighting-back against bigotry can help to thwart those who would have western countries become theocracies, specially when a company like Microsoft has generally had a pretty good reputation in this area until now. Right on!
