Alvin Kaddatz

Last week we told you about an anti-gay ad that appeared recently in The Lakelander newspaper in Whitney, Texas. Before posting the item, we put a call in to Kaddatz Equipment, the Hillsboro-based auction and farm equipment company that took out the ad, and requested the information they were offering about “companies to boycott because of their support of perversion.” We even gave them our Dallas Voice email address, but they didn’t catch on, and we received a response on Monday. The email from Alvin Kaddatz, the owner of Kaddatz Equipment who also apparently serves as chaplain for the Texas chapter of the Fellowship of Christian Auctioneers, contained a link to the Human Rights Campaign’s Buying for Workplace Equality 2011 as well as two links to the web site of the “ex-gay” group Exodus International. Our initial reaction was two-fold: first, don’t put yourself out on the research, boys; and second, this redneck clown is probably Rick Perry’s BFF. Here’s the full text of Kaddatz’s email:

Thank you for your request.

We are attaching the list of companies who support immorality. This list can also be found on the Human Rights Campaign website at

Also attached is a link to some information from Exodus International. This may also be found at their website at

We pray for all those in this lifestyle. Christ grants forgiveness to all those who repent. In scripture, John 8, verse 11 states:“She said, No man, Lord.” And Jesus said unto her, “Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.” KJV.

We hate the sin but love the sinner, just as Jesus taught us.

If you need any further assistance, please let me know.
