The “controversy” over Target’s political donation to a group that supports a Minnesota gubernatorial candidate opposed to gay marriage has bubbled up to the Washington Post’s front page. The short story is that after liberal and gay agenda groups found out about the donation, they quickly started pressuring Target with threats of boycotts and protests.
Unfortunately, Target — which apparently has fashioned itself as the leftist’s alternate to Wal-Mart — quickly caved. Target’s CEO issued an apologetic letter and vowed that the company would more closely review future donations.
This episode is a sorry example of how the gay agenda machine has successfully whipped corporations in the same way that Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton made a living shaking down companies who didn’t meet their definition of “diverse.” The ridiculous thing about the Target situation is that most Americans don’t support gay marriage, as has been repeatedly revealed in state referenda on the issue as well as in opinion polls. But because ordinary Americans generally aren’t as strident and well-organized as gay pressure groups and the left, companies like Target go scrambling out of fear that a tiny but vocal minority will drum up some bad press.
It’s too bad Target’s CEO didn’t show a little more backbone. He should have flipped the gay smear groups the proverbial bird and stuck to his guns — and the law, which thanks to the Citizens United case decided earlier this year, allows companies to make such political donations. The fact that Target chose to grovel before a very narrow, extremist pressure groups is a sad indictment of society’s condition.
Isn’t it interesting that the Bible becomes an authority when it supposedly backs up the leftwing agenda?
Newsweek saw fit to put on its cover this week a story that claims the Bible is supportive of gay marriage. Even if this were true (which I assure you, it is not), who cares? Leftwingers, gays and secular socialists generally trash the Bible as an irrelevant book of made-up stories that has no bearing on reality. So any good Bible-bashing homosexual should quickly dismiss the notion that the Good Book supports them getting married.
Some gays in California are pushing “Day Without a Gay” on Wednesday, urging people to “call in gay” to work to protest the recent voter-approved ban of homosexual “marriage”.
It remained unclear Monday night what connection there was between gay “marriage” and the ability to perform job duties.
A group of teachers who plan to abandon their classrooms Wednesday as part of the “protest” will use the day to figure out new ways to brainwash their 5th-graders into thinking sodomy is OK. Teachers like this should call in gay every day.
