PHOTOS: Store Censors Elton Johnís Us Weekly Cover (GAG ALERT!!!)
Stylite ^ | January 26th, 2011 | Julia Rubin

Posted on 01/26/2011 10:17:25 AM PST by Baladas

Last night a lady went to a grocery store in Mountain Home, Arkansas, where she was privy to one of the more offensive things we’ve heard about in a long time. The people over at Harps Supermarket decided to put a “family shield” (you know, “to protect young Harps shoppers”) over the cover of Us Weekly. But Harps is not trying to protect kids from Snooki or Kim or any other standard tabloid trash. No, they’re trying to “protect” children from a photo of Elton John, his partner David Furnish and their adorable baby Zachary.

This makes us angry. Really, really angry. This “shield” comes from a place of ignorance, intolerance and hate. An image of two loving parents thrilled to finally have a child of their own? This is clearly not something that should be censored. Ever.

I don't think Jules here knows the meaning of the word "censorship", but if you follow the link, there's pictures that make ME want to "censor" them here.

Sex perverts should not be permitted to adopt children.

Maybe they’re trying to “shield” them from the picture of Sir Elton himself. He looks creepy as hell in that shot!

Naw, it comes from a box of shields in the stockroom.

They are used to keep folks from having to see pictures
of sick fags being allowed to mess up an innocent kid.

Fine, let's do away with ignorance and educate people. Homosexual men have anal sex. One man puts his penis in another man's anus. Babies can't be made that way because the anus was not designed for procreation. It's biological function is to ride the body of waste.

PRINT THAT!

Hey Julia - want to see what real ignorance, intolerance and hate is? Try talking about Conservatism to a liberal or professing your Christian faith in front of them. Better yet, go on a 'tolerant' program like The View and try that.

You'll get to see what REAL intolerance and hatred is all about, real fast.

Elton John and his sex pervert didn't have a child. That child does not have the genetic makeup of both parents. Herein lies the fallacy of the claim that homosexuals can be parents just like heterosexuals.

Shame on the people at Harps Supermarket.

They shoud not even be selling this trash in the first place.

But if they must, then at least they have the decency to filter out the faggotry.

Sorry, but a private business has the right to determine what will and won’t be displayed in their establishments. If this store doesn’t want to display perversion, that’s their call.

Julia’s not too bright if she thinks these two perverts are “loving parents”.

Just my opinion of course.

He also looks like the "woman" in the relationship.

Two things occur to me here:

1. The store — being a private business — has a right to “censor” anything it displays on its shelves. Just as customers offended by such censorship have a right to shop elsewhere.

2. To circumvent any such issues, the store might be well advised to simply stop carrying Us magazine entirely. Because I would imagine that for every fruitbat edified at the sight of two wrinkled poofters cooing over a helpless baby there will be a hundred offended at that sight.

Correct. Not any different than the parential advisory sticker on CDs (thank you Tipped Gore) or Walmart refusing to sell certain music.

If this were true censorship, the gov’t would have given he orders to hide the cover. They did not.

Exactly right. And I’d fell the same way if a store hid the cover of Field and Stream with Sarah Palin holding a caribou she just hunted.

Zachary?

That reminds me of the joke where the punchline is “zachary rike assho.” I hope he never hears that joke, but I bet he will.

LOL... I was going to correct ride to rid, but then from the perverts point of view, ride seems to fit. ;>)

I saw the mag cover yesterday during checkout at Walmart and wondered to myself which of these two perverts takes care of the breastfeeding duties.

“Homosexual men have anal sex. One man puts his penis in another man’s anus.”

Really? I thought they held hands and kissed modestly. That’s the way the mainstream media portrays them? Really? Golly? Ya’ mean they have a rather disgusting and filthy way of having sex? You mean they engage in perverted and degenerate ways of showing physical “affection” towards each other????????????

We’ll leave this pic out for everyone to see if all the baby killing women have to look at a sonogram of their “blob of tissue” before ripping it out!

Why does it upset them? They arenot and will nevr be a “normal” family no matter how much the left wants to make that so. There will never be a way to control thought and the site of that makes many of us very angry for the baby who is being used to make two older gay men feel good.

Shame on the people at Harps Supermarket.

They shoud not even be selling this trash in the first place.

I once happened to walk by when two supermarket clerks were working in the magazine section. The younger one made a critical comment about the type of trashy magazines sold there and what kind of people would buy them. The more senior one corrected him: "Our's is not to reason why. Our's is to sell."

"“If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.” - Leviticus 20:13" Yeah, but that's just the Bible (God) . . . Who's He?

Our local Palm Springs newspaper crawls with homosexual posters/commentors.....I tend to shut them up by pointing out that “It’s a simple plumbing issue, stupid”.

Saw the magazine cover today when checking out in grocery store. Had to do a double take as someone wrote “Help me” on the baby’s forehead.

Anderson Cooper brought up the matter on CNN about 30 minutes ago. He brought in on Dr Phil to back up his obviously disapproving stance. Well there was Phil and a mention of loving care for the child. What kind of man claims to be skilled in human behaviour and consequences, and endorses these men? True his career would be over if he said anything that was adverse- he could have shut his mouth. We learn the covering was quickly taken down.

These wretched,selfish men getting away with trying to assert that their life style is normal. Not for them to shut up and do what they do in private and thank society for ignoring them.

I would never, ever condone such acts of vandalism. But that is rather clever. I hope thousands of other people don't get the same idea.

I am offended by a magazine cover celebrating two perverts spitting in the face of God.

Liberals are offended by having such a magazine cover “censored.”

That issue of US Magazine is openly displayed in thousands of retail outlets all across the country.

That issue of US Magazine has a “protective shield” placed over it in one grocery store chain in Arkansas.

Tell me, WHO is really winning the culture war?
