Target, the nations second-largest retailer, could be sending as much as $120,000 to a homosexual activist group through its online sale of pride shirts.
The site says 100 percent of the sales of the rainbow-themed shirts will go to the Family Equality Council, a gay-activist organization. Among other issues, it lobbies for gay adoption, the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act and same-sex marriage.
Randy Sharp, director of special projects for the American Family Association, denounced the retailer for crossing into social activism.
Really what Target is saying is that were going to take sides in this social agenda and were not going to support natural marriage, were going to support homosexual marriage, he said.
On a rainbow flag on the Target website, it declares June is National Pride Month.
The site promises that Target will donate 100 percent of the purchase price for each PRIDE item sold between May 20, 2012 and June 30, 2012 to Family Equality Council (www.familyequality.org), up to a maximum donation of $120,000.
The Family Equality Council is also among the community partners listed on the diversity page of Targets Web site.
The 1,700-plus-store retailer was criticized in 2010 by homosexual activists for a donation to a Minnesota political group, MN Forward, which supported a gubernatorial candidate who opposed same-sex marriage.

Tom Emmer in his race for Minnesota governor. While Target CEO Gregg Steinhafel has apologized to employees for the contribution, and while Target is also meeting with the Human Rights Campaign to mitigate damages, they have not requested the funds back, and Chicago activists...
