Religious charity backs Tesco boycott over employee’s “evil Christians” remark
The Christian Institute is backing a boycott of the supermarket Tesco after one of its employees wrote on his personal Flickr page three years ago that he would campaign against “evil” Christians who oppose marriage equality.
Tesco has been criticised by the organisation in recent months for reducing the sizeable financial support it has offered Cancer Research UK over the last ten years, while giving Pride London £30,000 to fund its family area.
The charity slammed Tesco for its Pride London donation, which amounts to only 0.05% of the retailer’s £63.4 million of annual charitable giving.
