quit making excuses for hypocrisy.

And I love how some freepers think they have the right to tell a business how it should run and put itself at risk of litigation - hell, it's not their money or their business, so they can be as brave and magnanimous as they keyboards let them, because they don't have anything at risk.

Target should do this, target should do that, blah blah blah - hey, if they get sued I don't lose anything - they can spare the millions in court costs fighting for a cause *I* believe in...

"hypocrisy" ... I do not think you know what that means.

You want to believe that giving a dollar is not as valueable as giving a dollar's worth of time. You want to believe withholding a dollar from a corporation in protest is without merit. You want to think freepers are all "talk" in their public forums and no "do" in their private lives.

So be it. That's your right and more power to you. Just don't be too surprised when we brush you off and ignore you. We've got better things to "do" ... but we'll welcome you in anytime you want to join us. The last word is yours; I'm moving on.

If there were a serious lawsuit threat Wal*Mart and the other stores would all ban them. There isn't one.

What has motivated Target is political correctness. They'd rather have the money of pixies and fairies than mine.

BTW, your motivation is certainly suspect, flash.

Who ever mentioned "litigation"??? Even Target didn't come up with that one. What are the claimants going to sue for? A private business chose to let a religious organization, one that has secularized to the point it received federal grants BEFORE the "faith-based initiative", solicit funds on its premises. There is no cause of action there. Would one claim assault due to the infliction of bell-ringing harassment? Your post is tangential and irrelevant.
