Gay rights group Human Rights Campaign (HRC) has been accused of supporting “homosexual agenda” in a Texas ad.

The ad, which appeared in the Whitney, Texas-based The Lakelander, asks readers to boycott the HRC, and was paid for by Kaddatz Equipment, a Hillsboro-based auctioneering and farm equipment company.

Under the headline “How Can We Stop Perversion?” the ads informs readers that the HRC is a group that supports perversion.

“They use the equal sign – as their trademark, if you see this sign on a vehicle, they are supporting the homosexual agenda which includes: Marriage between Adam & Steve; Getting into our schools to teach students that perversion is normal; Getting businesses to support their immoral lifestyle.”

The ad goes on to list the email address of owner Alvin Kaddatz ( for a list of companies to boycott.

“Pray that these people will repent and receive Christ as savior,” the ad concludes.

The Lakelander confirmed to HRC that the ad ran on August 10.

“Engaging locally is the best way to advance equality and push back against the hate spread by Kaddatz Equipment and others,” the HRC wrote in a blog post.
