Here are a few websites that list companies that aggressively support LGBT organizations.

Here Are The 379 Companies Urging The Supreme Court To Support Same-Sex Marriage | The Huffington Post

UNF - Career Services - LGBT List of LGBT-Friendly Companies

Brands that love LGBT the most

I personally have made a little agreement with myself not to support them as much as possible.

I can't say I don't support all of them 100%. For example, there have been times when a certain
restaurant has been the ONLY choice in the area where I was at the time. So sometimes I will eat there.
Also, I own a certain brand of automobiles. I bought them before I was aware of their stance on this.
However, I don't plan on selling them or trading them in anytime soon (one I am still making payments).
Also, the company I work for only deals with certain vendors, so I have to deal with these as well.

But whenever there is a choice, I generally choose not to support them.
I haven't gone to a move this year, I am mostly fed up with Hollywood's stance on just about everything.

I don't watch Frazier, Big Bang, Rosie, Ellen, Oprah, or any show that opening supports these things either.
I haven't drank a Starbucks coffee in a few years.

Now I know I am just one person, but sometimes we make a difference as individuals with a common
stake. For example Target dept stores stock dropped 25% since they announced support for transgender
bathrooms in their stores.

So it becomes a question of... do we knowingly choose to support these companies?
Now it may be that we are ignorant about where some companies stand, and I'm certain some don't
make their financial support public knowledge. But for the companies we "know" about, is there
any reason to NOT support them?

Given how corrupt, evil and wilfully sinful the world is you must not lose hair over which place to shop at or which products are safe or
OK to buy. (other than food products made in China you should return to the shelf to avoid poisoning yourself).

I [Paul] wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators:
Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters;
for then must ye needs go out of the world.
1Corinthians 5:9-10

Everything of this world is unrighteous and un-Godly. That's why Paul writes about not being entangled again with worldly issues,
such as certain foods, or days of the week, or moons and seasons, or circumcision, or outwardly asceticism (eg: cold showers only).

We are in this world but not of this world. We separate ourselves spiritually (not physically in monasteries) and are consecrated
by the gospel and the Holy Spirit as a peculiar people, a holy nation. We are ambassadors to Christ and the gospel, therefore citizens
of another kingdom. Whilst we live in an unbelieving world, we seek to bring new people in to the Kingdom of God/heaven.

2 That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.
3 For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts,
excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries:
4 Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:
5 Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead.
6 For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh,
but live according to God in the spirit.
1Peter 4:2-6

Just watch for one week the BBC World Service, RT, Fox News, etc. etc. and you will be overwhelmed at just how corrupt and
wicked politics, economics, politicians, celebrities, and all the rest are. Un-Godliness rules.

The only difference I can make in the world is to preach Jesus and salvation to another person.

Deciding which ones to use and which ones to avoid may be like trying to decide which of the 30,000+ Christian denominations [if any] we should be attending or even joining. It is an impossible thing if we must do it alone, but if we are really serious and are approaching God in the right way, will not He give us every answer that we need? What we really "need" is not what we decide that we need, but what God decides that we need. If Jesus is really our Head, will He not lead us properly?

[for me anyway] we must not be brought under the power of distraction of this present evil world, as in (1 Corinthians 5:9-13) which the Holy Spirit of Truth through the Apostle Paul telling us not to company with the immoral (or those that support the immoral) yet we cannot be from all of them, for then we would have to be out of this word; but our focus must be toward those that say they are Christians and follow immoral behavior; with these we should not even eat a meal with: as for the unbelieving society it is God who judges them (again according to that which is written).

"I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators: Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world. But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat. For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within? But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person." (1 Corinthians 5:9-13)

My thoughts are..when you walk in His ways He brings you out of the worldly system so you dont need to rely on the world anymore. For example a lot of those companies like.,hollywood or coffee places a christian actually doesnt need to even go there or watch. Because God really does provide us with everything we need already.

Its because He has better things for us to do than..go shopping, drink coffee and watch movies all day.
