Target Raises Money for Same-Sex Marriage Group
CitizenLink Blog ^ | 5/24/12 | Steve Fountain

Target, the nation’s 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 we’re going to take sides in this social agenda and we’re not going to support natural marriage, we’re 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 Target’s 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.

No Target for you!

Was it Target that banned the Salvation Army bell ringers?

They didn’t ban the Salvation Army, they stopped all front of the store salutations.
At Christmas they still have a link to the Salvation Army on their web site.

Target has a history of supporting leftist nonsense. Its founding family also gave the world Senator/Governor Mark Dayton, Communist-Minnesota.

Companies just keep cutting their throats. I don’t just mean from the loss of patrons this will cause. The Gay agenda is in lock-step with the socialist agenda. Target is funding the socialists that will eventually gobble them up.

I wonder if we designed a shirt opposing gay marriage if they will do the same and donate the proceeds to the opposition. Seems fair to me....

Wasn’t Target accused by the Gay Gestapo of being anti-gay for some reason or another a few months ago? I geuss this is the payback or should I say the shakedown.

And I haven’t shopped there since they did. Actually my feet have never darkened their doorway.

Chicagoans protest Target store (Gay Extremists Try to Shakedown Target for $$$)

Posted on Saturday, August 14, 2010 2:18:59 PM by Maelstorm

About 50 people turned out Saturday, Aug. 14 for a protest of the new Target store in Chicago, on Broadway just north of Montrose. They were calling for a boycott of the store because of a recent $150,000 contribution to a fund, Minnesota Forward, that in turn gave that money to right-wing conservative Republican candidate Rep. 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...
