Comcast issues statement, refuses to take position on veto of TN hate law

At least Comcast, while awfully late to the game, is saying that they oppose the hateful law. Too bad Comcast is afraid, or unable, to call on the governor to veto it. I guess they’re not that opposed.

“At Comcast, we believe it’s simple: discrimination is wrong. Our policy of non-discrimination provides the same protections to all our employees, whether in Tennessee or any other state. Consistent with that, we don’t support Tennessee SB632/HB600. Comcast agrees with the NGLCC, ‘No one should be judged by his or her sexual orientation or gender identity in the workplace. In this delicate economic climate, diminishing the rights of LGBT people sends the wrong signal across Tennessee and around the country.’”

Great, Comcast is so pro-diversity then I’m guessing they’ve already signed onto the letter going around that would ask the governor to veto the bill, right? Comcast has signed on to the letter, right? If not, then they’re clearly not that opposed to the bill, and that would mean they just lied.
