Homosexual group calls for boycott of Wal-Mart
American Family Association ^

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.

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.

Vet families get a serving of hope for holidays

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.

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.

If these sodomites know anything at about Wal-Mart, they would know they are wasting their time, it take an full year for a full time associate to qualify to get benefits, which they take a lot if heat over this policy. I highly doubt they will bend over (no pun intended ) for sodomites

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?

(Target is the company which no longer allows the Salvation Army to solicit Christmas donations in front of their stores.)

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.

My Walmart is in a black neighborhood. When Brokeback Mountain came out on DVD, they put a display of it right at the entrance. You can imagine how a movie about two white boys getting gay together was selling like hotcakes.

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.

Never go to Wal Mart due the great number of people there. But will not go and spend my money at the store and on line at Wal Mart.com.

Thank you for telling me that they are pro American and not pro terrorist.

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.

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 :)

I always thought Target was gay.

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.

I agree with you. I don’t bash gays but I really don’t want to explain to my child why two men are making out in aisle #2 in any store. If they would not make such a display of their gayness I wouldn’t mind. I am just sick of their public displays. And I am more sick of the way they push their gay agenda in the school system. There is no reason for them to insist that 2nd graders need to be told its Ok to be Gay. Or read the King & King etc...

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.

"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!

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.

SAME HERE!

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?

GEESH!

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.

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.

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
