Hold down the option key when you quit a Lion app or the shift key when launching to "discard" previous windows".

... alternatively, you can turn this behavior off for all applications via System Preferences, General.

Go to System Preferences and select the "General" system preference. Then UNCHECK the box next to "Restore windows when quitting and re-opening apps"
That did it for me. Now no matter what window is there when I quit Safari, Safari reopens to my homepage.

What worked for me was going to System Preferences, General tab, uncheck "Restore windows when quitting and re-opening apps", then I shut down my computer and when I turned it back on, it worked, I was back on my home page when I started Safari. I probably would have worked if I just restarted my computer, but I went the long route.

Run this in terminal to disable the resume feature for only Safari:
defaults write com.apple.Safari NSQuitAlwaysKeepsWindows -bool false
