Gays challenge traditional marriage supporters: put up or shut up
Homosexual group calls for boycott of Wal-Mart, shopping at Target instead
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.
Could you add the link for THIS article?
Damn, talk about a rock and a hard spot. Surely there is a way to make a point against the homosexual agenda without having to shop at Wal-Mart. Which brings me to a question, being style conscious, how many gays would shop at Wal-Mart anyway? I’m straight, married, and can’t color coordinate, and I still can’t bring myself to shop there.
Yah, gay activists are not your typical Wal-mart shopper . . .
Yes, this could actually drive me to making a shopping trip to Walmart. Haven’t been there for several years.
I support Walmart.
LIBERALS ALWAYS HATE a successful CAPITALISM - and WALMART is the quintessential capitalistic story.
Good for Walmart. Sort of makes me want to shop there...hey, wait a minute, I already do. So, shop Walmart, help boycott homosexual sodomists.
Retail giant Wal-Mart has made a substantial donation to “Fisher Houses” on 36 U.S. military installations and VA medical centers in order to help provide a brighter Christmas for military families.
Can’t help but support TRUE, patriotic stores like WalMart!
Sometimes, even I can’t believe some of the ignorant stuff people post about Walmart on FR ... trolls?
If Wal Mart puts up signs in all their stores banning queers I may just ok the Mrs to shop in there. Been a long time since either of us have been on their parking lot, let alone in the store. 2001, I think.
Shopping at Target on only mildly unpleasant while shopping at Wal-Mart is a horrific nightmare.
My local Wal-Mart is a convenient place to grab shotgun ammo on the way to the range
As long as you don't buy the "Made in China" children's toys.
I find NO link on this at AFA?
Is this really TRUE?
If it is, what is the link?
The benefits at Wal-Mart are actually very good and very reasonable, but they make you wait for good reason, it affords Wal-Mart the ability to pass the saving of not having to process 100's of thousands of medical benefit applications for people who only stick around for under six months. Turnover for people under six months is very high due to the nature of the business, so processing paperwork is a hugh expense
Beside what homo's shop at Wal-Mart?
Just came back from Walmart. Bought four 5-gallon containers of oil. They sure have gone up in price. Over $9 now.
so they’re not going to buy vaseline and saran wrap from wal-mart anymore?
I stopped buying at Target just for that reason alone. If I can shop at Walmart & not have to see gays I will shop there more often. My Walmart give the Salvation Army a little shelter to keep them out of the wind & rain, I think thats very nice of them.
Come to think of it, Target does seem gayer than Walmart. Target has better clothes... Thanks Isaac Mizrachi. I try to boycott Target because of that whole Salvation Army thing, though.
Thank you for telling me that they are pro American and not pro terrorist.
You are kidding, right? You would be happy if stores would actually ban gay people from shopping there?
The few times I have been in a Wal-Mart there were dozens of kids running around screaming, uncontrolled by their parents and the stores were dirty, with sticky floors and long lines at check out.
At Target, the parents know how to control their kids, the stores are clean, the products of a higher quality and the lines are faster allowing me to get out of their quicker.
And I really do not care about the sexual orientation of the person who person who is scanning my items and taking my payment.
Well, what are “gays” NOT going to buy there:
Please boycott. That way I don’t have to see your pansy asses in the store.
Its not like their are that damn many of them to actually make a difference.
No, I’m not kidding. I don’t want them to be allowed to be near children either.
I have my reasons for disliking Target — but AFA needs to get off the crapola about Target and the Salvation Army. continuing that BS only further erodes AFA’s credibility.
You've obviously never shopped in the Target in Dover, DE. Even my worst experience in any WalMart was better than my best experience in that particular store.
I don't know what it is, but I totally agree with you.
I'm a strange woman in that I don't particularly like shopping, but shopping in WalMart generally doesn't bother me. Of course because of my basic dislike of shopping I do make concious decisions of when I go........such as you wouldn't find me in ANY store today :)
The only gripe I have with Walmart is all of the Chinese merchandise they carry.
I'll still do most of my Christmas shopping there, especially because of this story.
“Shopping at Target on only mildly unpleasant while shopping at Wal-Mart is a horrific nightmare.”
That comment speaks more about where you live than it does Wal-Mart as a store.
WOW - I want to shop in that Target because I have never been in one like that.
The few articles of clothing I ever purchased there were overpriced (I bought on sale) and fell apart after the first washing and in no way are there styles appropriate for young girls.
I don’t shop Wal-Mart much myself, but if the faggots and dykes stop going there, I might shop there more!
A bit extreme, don't you think? Scary attitude.
"Living their life" is no longer enough for the fags... They WANT YOUR CHILDREN NOW... they are indoctrinating kids everywhere (schools, Hollywood, Disneyland) everywhere. And they have been putting pressure on corporate America at least for the last 20 years...This is not new!
I ALSO received it in my e-mail and it is a legitimate e-mail!
SHOP AT WALMART!
You may continue to respect priests and teachers who have been convicted of homosexual crimes, that’s your freedom in this country. I don’t choose to do so. As a matter of fact I don’t choose to respect anyone who can’t maintain a healthy and self respecting attitude about sex and reproduction. They are intertwined you see.
These homo’s are taking a queer approach to the problem. The ladies need to marry males and the men to marry ladies and they would have no problem.
Found the link for it!
“No, Im not kidding. I dont want them to be allowed to be near children either.”
Why would any rational person want to RISK their kids being MOLESTED by these perverts or look up to them as a “normal” example of a human being?
I tell my kids these are emotionally disturbed people and stay away from them. Just as I would tell them to avoid theives and murderers.
What could be better than a nice calm, PC worry free shopping at Christmas time. I will do most of mine at Walmart, and some at Radio Shack. Their commercials are “real” ;)
It's fine with me if they boycott Walmart and switch to Target. If they do I won't have to be nauseated by homo couples strolling through the stores with hands on each other's butts, because I don't patronize stores like Target which donate money to antigun orgs.
I'm not a big fan of Walmart either since they have become the largest outlet for Chinese made goods in the US, but at least it isn't actively supporting our internal enemies in addition to our foreign ones.
I agree with you! On shopping in general, and doubly on today!
Made the mistake of going to Wal-Mart this afternoon (Black Friday) to get some everyday items. Really should have waited. They wanted to do the total bag check (which you do not have to submit to). One of the door checkers got incensed when I declined their request and attempted to prevent me from leaving. Store manager and I had a discussion in the ante room. She was taken back when I quoted the law and Wal-Mart policy to her. Pointed out that jobs including hers were on the line if both were not followed. She backed way off, but its not clear the checkers were instructed on their limitations.
I did notice several people paying close attention to the lecture I gave the checker and the manager, and more people were declining the inspections
