    Gays challenge traditional marriage supporters: put up or shut up

    Homosexual group calls for boycott of Wal-Mart, shopping at Target instead

    Dear Gerald,

    If Wal-Mart sales go down, gays will claim victory in support of same-sex "marriage" benefits

    The Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation's largest homosexual organization, has issued a challenge to pro-traditional marriage supporters saying in essence: "Put up or shut up." They have called for a boycott of Wal-Mart while urging their supporters to buy from Target.

    The reason? Wal-Mart refuses to offer "domestic benefits" (benefits given to married couples) to homosexual partners.

    The homosexual organization also urged individuals to buy from Target, saying "consumers should make every effort to support" Target because Target offers "marriage" benefits to homosexual partners. (Target is the company which no longer allows the Salvation Army to solicit Christmas donations in front of their stores.)

    USA Today interviewed me November 20 concerning the Wal-Mart boycott, citing--among other things--the number of HRC's "buy and don't buy guide" downloaded from the Internet and the billions of dollars the gays claim in buying power. I told Andrea Stone, the reporter who called, that AFA would promote a "buycott" of Wal-Mart and suggested that she look at Wal-Mart's sales at the end of December to see who won.

    However, in her article the next day there was not a single word from her interview with me. Instead, the article was basically a "puff piece" about the homosexual boycott. Homosexuals have challenged traditional marriage supporters to do battle. We will now see if traditional marriage supporters accept the challenge.

    Make every effort to shop at Wal-Mart this Christmas season. The gays want Wal-Mart sales to go down so they can claim victory.

    Forward this to your friends and family and urge them to buy at Wal-Mart. Announce this in your Sunday School class, at church, etc. Ask your pastor to announce in church newsletters and bulletins that the homosexuals are challenging those who support traditional marriage. Tell them about the homosexual's efforts to force Wal-Mart to offer "marriage" benefits and Target's support for "marriage" benefits.

    Yeah, let's all go support a company that drives American jobs to China.:rolleyes:

    Oh wait...that's all of them.

    Wildmon is once again ridiculous. Anyone else think he must own WalMart stock?

    Check out this link before you decide to spend your hard earned dollars at Walmart vers Target just because of this:

    Exactly, and if you really want to make a difference, give the money you saved to your local church!

    This is too weird. I've been avoiding Walmart for years because they were supposedly FOR the gays and now we're hearing the opposite? I think from now on I'll just shop where I want and stop trying to keep up with these boucotts. This is too confusing!

    I prefer Target to WalMart, but shop at both, and will continue to do so.

    YOU confused!!!!? :laugh: :laugh:

    Just go say to yourself... "Tiny is always right"
    And repeat that 76 times. (Don't know why 76 times.. just a stupid number!).....

    Then go shopping with Pocadots money!!!

    oH, and you can buy me a present too...
    Some new tires would be nice, and they are only $75 a piece at Walmart!!!

    I like Walmart.. don't know why, I just do!
    Of course I am weird... I am one of the only men I know that likes to shop!!!

    It doesn't bother me that Target offers health benefits to domestic partners. I'm in favor of expanding health coverage, regardless of sexual orientation.

    Shop the local Mom and Pop stores then there won't be a problem. No contributing to sweat shops this way.
    Join your local Chamber of Commerce and get to know the honorable business owners. Get involved in your community. The majority of our friends are from the local Chamber of Commerce. Imo, they are a better class of people to hang with anyway. Churches ought to join their local Chambers :)!


    Better service and the $$ (overall) remains in the local economy.
