For the fourteenth straight year shareholders of a major oil company are rejecting a proposal to ban discrimination against gays.

ExxonMobil shareholders voted by a large margin to defeat the measure on Wednesday.  The primary impetus behind renewed efforts to get the discrimination ban passed is the fact that ExxonMobil does not extend spousal benefits to employees who marry gay partners, despite the fact that gay marriage is now legal in many states.

The 2013 ExxonMobil shareholders meeting took place at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas, Texas.
