Sears Supports Homosexual TV Network With Advertising
AFA ^ | December 7, 2006 | Donald E. Wildmon

Posted on 12/08/2006 2:55:09 PM PST by MovementConservative

Two-minute infomercials sponsored explicitly by Sears helps keep the homosexual network on the air.

Sears has thrown its support to the LOGO network. LOGO is the 24-hour cable television network dedicated to programming for lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders according to a homosexual advertising website. It is carried on many cable systems around the country. Many of you have been forced to accept it as part of your cable package. Sears is now helping to make it mainstream!

Sear's advertising will help LOGO air shows like "Sex 2K Drag Kings," "The Gayest and Greatest of 2006," and "Transgeneration."

Sears advertising (two-minute infomercials) will go to help the fledging network get on firm financial ground. Sears advertising is financing LOGO's push to legalize homosexual marriage in addition to promoting the homosexual lifestyle.

Sears is owned by Kmart Corporation.

Take Action 1. Send an email to Sears asking them to cancel their advertising on LOGO.

2. Call your local Sears store and ask why Sears is supporting the homosexual network with its advertising.

3. Forward this email to your friends and family.

Send Your Email to Sears Now!

If you think our efforts are worthy, would you please support us with a small gift? Thank you for caring enough to get involved.

Sincerely,

Donald E. Wildmon, Founder and Chairman American Family Association

Already WAY ahead of the curve. I stopped shopping at KMart when the stopped selling firearms and I don't think I have ever shopped at Sears cause I got better prices elsewhere.

Free market capitalism demands that I shop at the store closest to me. Social issues are not addressed by Milton Friedman, and so this announcement by F. Donald Wilmon cannot affect what decision I make when I decide to go shopping that day.

It is only if F. Donald Wilmon is willing to put up an argument based on the whims of the Free Market Philosophy that I will be swayed. Social issues are not addressed neither by other economists.

I do not agree with the homosexual lifestyle. But I see no reason to make a big deal out of this. Sears has been buying ads to air on a bunch of different channels. This doesnt mean much.

By all means shop where you like. Just please understand that the rest of us will do the same, and social issues do matter to some of us.

Neither...the marketplace should win out without these creeps asking for money.

Homos spend money too.

Would that follow from the article?

Well SEARS has an EXCELLENT policy for employees in the reserves --they make up the entire difference in their salaries if they are activated

Sears first responsibility is to make money for its shareholders. Advertising on a gay network may contribute to increased sales which may help do just that.

If Sears bought ad space in The Nation someone here would be screaming that it's advocating for left-wingers. Some of you should rest up for the real battles.

Really. Sears is just catering to a segment of their customer base. What a surprise.

To me, I don't necessarily mind that people not shop at Sears for showing a commercial on a gay channel IF we stop getting this stuff peacemeal and get every store, resturant, company that is doing the same thing whether giving money, showing an occasional commercial or giving some sort of benefits to domestic partnership. We have one different thread every fews days on one store or another that if this really upsets people than I suspect that people should stop ALL SHOPPING forever and just start a garden (God forbid that the tools are from a company that gave a few bucks to a gay group though). That is my main problem with this. I truly believe that it is unfair to penalize one company when we really don't know all the companies and stores etc that do this sort of thing. I guess everyone here believes I should get rid of the families Kenmore appliances and the skillcraft tools...

My main question to this entire thread is "What is this guy doing watching gay TV?" I hope that this does not bring about another conservative leader being outed...

What you are seeing is one more step in aberrant social behavior becoming normal. People might, at this point in time be agast, if Sears advertised in the "Pederast Quarterly" but not in "Homosexual Times". I suppose if Sears, offered safe sex toys for bestiality, it would be OK, if it generated profit for shareholders.I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings.

The Ghost of FReepers Past stated my opinion well, in post #10.

I would add that I am a Capitalist but do not worship a Corporate deity. Corporations are willing to do anything to make a buck. If it is detrimental to society and good for the 'bottomline' they don't care...I do.

truth_seeker said, I wonder if this guy objects to selling/providing food, water, electricity, housing, gasoline, schooling, clothing, to certain categories of people?

that is indicative of a number of posters on this thread, whom are not able to differentiate between homosexuals and the homosexual agenda.

Christians, conservatives and Republicans trashing a conservative Christian, on a conservative forum, who is opposing a dangerous agenda, should tell y'all what inroads the agenda has made.

But then again, after November, nothing surprises me.

I can imagine. But I am capable of sending a package to USA Cares myself. It is nice what they are doing for our military though.

Stoopid.

This is how the AFA shows what a completely irrelevant and useless outfit they are. I might even wonder if this is some liberal group trying to make conservatives look stoopid.

Oh my, some gay people might actually buy something from Sears. Wow. Please forgive me if I am underwhelmed.

Yes, the infiltration of corporations, businesses, foundations, educational institutions and all brances of government continues apace.

And those of us who disagree are labeled as kooks, extremists, haters, homophobes and the newest one, "prudes". I'd rather be on the right side even if it's (temporarily) the losing side.

Confession Time: When I was a young, wide-eyed liberal working in marketing, I once voted in favor of our company advertising in a gay publication. My bosses were hesitant, but I argued in favor of it: "They spend money, too." The irony is, when it came time to work on the print ad, the men running the gay publication didn't want to deal with me (a woman). They were very curt and short with me; they only wanted to speak with the men in charge.
