Target's promise to 'gay' community -- Chris Woodward - OneNewsNow - 5/24/2012 4:30:00 AM (I won't ever shop Target again~~!!)
A pro-family organization is drawing attention to Target for donating its sales in support of "gay marriage" laws.
Target issued a statement on its website this week, saying it will donate 100 percent of proceeds from "pride" T-shirts bought online in June to Family Equality Council. That drew the attention of Randy Sharp, special projects director at the American Family Association (AFA).
"[Family Equality Council] advances homosexual marriage in the United States and pushes for federal law to recognize same-sex marriage," he explains. "Target has basically decided that they're going to endorse this organization, that they're going to endorse gay marriage laws in the United States, and they're going to back it up with $120,000 cash."
Sharp recognizes that a few corporations in America are backing same-sex marriage, but notes this is the first time that AFA has seen Target get involved. But the retailer's promise to homosexuals is blatantly posted on its webpage.
"We know for a fact that Target is a very gay-friendly company. You may remember a couple of years ago, when Target came under heat from homosexual activists for donating to a pro-family candidate for United States Congress," the special projects director recalls. "And I think what Target has done is they've folded that tent and they've completely caved in to the homosexual agenda."
So, AFA is urging consumers to contact the Target corporate office, specifically Chairman Gregg Steinhafel, and let them know that as long as the retailer donates cash to promote something in which they do not believe, they will shop elsewhere.
"I believe that's going to send a strong message to the company that they should remain neutral in this culture war," Sharp offers. "What Target needs to do is do what they do -- and that is sell good, quality products at a low price to help families live a better life."
