Home Depot - Employee Fired over God Button sign now

We the undersigned, people of the United States of America, are offended by the actions of Home Depot Inc. in Okeechobee, FL. One of your managers fired an employee for wearing an American Flag button that said One Nation Under God on his work apron. This comes to show that Home Depot does not stand for this country and there needs to be action taken against your company. The following story was posted on FoxNews.com:


A Florida man says he was fired from his job at The Home Depot for wearing an American flag pin that said "One nation under God, indivisible."

Trevor Keezer, 20, said he had worn the button ever since he started working at the home improvement retailer 19 months ago. He said it was his way of supporting U.S. troops, the Florida Sun-Sentinel reported.

Keezer, whose brother Army Spc. Steven Keezer Jr. is set to return to Iraq in December, said none of his supervisors had anything negative to say about the pin until last month when he began bringing his bible to work, the paper reported.

"That's when I was told it had to come off, or I would be sent home," Keezer told WPTV last week.

"So they sent me home for six straight days without pay. And then today they terminated me."

Home Depot spokesman Craig Fishel said he could not comment specifically on Keezer's termination but said, The Companys dress code policy states that we do not allow non-company buttons, regardless of their message or content.

Fishel said The Home Depot has its own sanctioned patriotic pins that employees have the option to wear.

Keezer said he opted to wear his own pin instead because none of the company's pins mentioned God.

"You can't have country without God," said Keezer, the Sentinel reported.


By firing this individual you have showed the American people your lack of allegiance to the United States. We are demanding a formal written apology and the reinstatement of Mr. Trevor Keezer or we will no longer purchase any products at Home Depot in the United States of America.

    If this was a dress code violation, why wait over a year. In this case it seems it was the manager who was not doing his job.

    I really hate that this has happened. Home Depot needs to change their way of thinking because I'm going with a company that supports God and Country.

    Mr. Trevor Keezer was probably your best employee since he worked for GOD and not you. I pray GOD will put Home Depot out of business, not a very smart move in this economy.

    Your stance would be somewhat believable (yet still offensive), if he had not already been wearing the pin for over a year! Added is the fact that this is a verse from the pledge of allegiance! It is sad to see that a company based in America would be off

    This Country was founded by God fearing men. This is what makes America great. God has honored us. If we don't stand up together as a Country for our belief in God it will be the beginning of the end.

    Please reinstate this fine young man and let our freedom ring. We need more of these kind of folks that are willing to stand up for the good things in this life so many have fought and died for. No wonder God doesn't bless this nation any longer. But one
