The American Family Association is calling for a boycott of Target for submitting a brief urging the Supreme Court to rule in favor of marriage equality (the Christian right calls this “economic terrorism” when done by liberals). They don’t think their members should support a company that is “making a mockery of God’s Word.”
Target has filed legal briefs in two court cases intended to win marriage rights for homosexuals and lesbians. The cases are being weighed by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh District.
“It is our belief that everyone should be treated equally under the law, and that includes rights we believe individuals should have related to marriage,” Target Executive Vice President of Human Resources Jodee Kozlak wrote on the company’s blog.While other companies are choosing to remain neutral in the culture war, Target is going all out to support homosexual marriage.
This is a company whose leaders make a mockery of marriage. They make a mockery of God’s Word – and every Christian in this nation should let Target know it is out of step with the majority of Americans who support natural marriage.
Are you going to give Target your money, knowing they’ll use it to undermine your deeply held beliefs?
But here’s the thing: Target is one of 30 companies that signed on to that brief, which you can read here. If you’re going to boycott one, you should boycott them all. The list includes Amazon, Cisco and Oracle, which means they’d pretty much have to stop using the internet. Which would be great, wouldn’t it?
