Marriott CEO responds (and is clearly feeling the heat)

Bill Marriott is CEO of Marriott International, a hotel chain some have mentioned as being a possible boycott target in the wake of Prop 8. He is Mormon and says he keeps religion separate from business.

We were among the first in our industry to offer domestic partner benefits, and we’ve earned a perfect 100% score on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index for two years in a row. Many of our hotels have hosted LGBT community functions and events for years.

Then perhaps he could use his considerable influence upon the LDS hierarchy to get them to reconsider their political opposition to secular gay marriage?


  • Opening the hotels to LGBT is business and makes money that doesn’t mean they will not push for legislation that will hamper their freedom. As usual religion speaks with forked tongue. The various religions are a rich and powerful part of the corporate world and will likewise use that power and wealth to its own ends.
