Skip to comments.JC Penney Raises Ire With Another Gay-Friendly Ad (2 "Fathers" for Fathers Day)

Is JC Penney trying to become GayC Penney, or is it just a smart marketer?
Last year, the company announced that Ellen DeGeneres, who is openly gay, would be its latest spokesperson. On Mothers Day, it featured a lesbian couple in one of its ads. And now, just in time for Fathers Day, the retail chain has issued another print ad, this one with real-life couple Todd Koch and Cooper Smith, and their two young children.
The copy reads: What makes Dad so cool? Hes the swim coach, tent maker, best friend, bike fixer and hug giver all rolled into one. Or two.
Once again, the ads have raised the ire of the conservative One Million Moms, that is again accusing JC Penney of promoting sin in its advertisements.
Its obvious that JCP would rather take sides than remain neutral in the culture war, OMM writes. JCP will hear from the other side, so they need to hear from us as well. Our persistence will pay off! One day we will answer for our actions or lack of them. We must remain diligent and stand up for Biblical values and truth. Scripture says multiple times that homosexuality is wrong, and God will not tolerate this sinful nature.

Either JC Pansy completely repudiates this utter evil, or my days of ever darkening their doors, or website, are permanently gone.
Short the stock.
JC Penney is making a mockery of ten thousand years of human tradition. Hell, they're making a mockery of nature.
Post-modernism denies natural law, yes.
Gays don’t shop JC Penny either. The management running the show should be removed from office.
NO MORE GAY C. PENNEY.
I don't believe it is a good idea to allow mentally-ill people to raise children...
Two “dads” are double cool?
Why doesn’t anyone notice or mention how “cool” it is to have no mom?
I can’t boycott everything/every store that is Lib, Left, or insulting but in this case I’m never setting foot in JCP again unless this type of pro-faggot policy stops.
The ad is nothing short of Gay Porn.
And they sent it to children.
They should be arrested.
I was just following a ball game online, and they just ran an ad for some Oprah special featuring a visit at home with Neil Patrick Harris (?)and his same-sex honey, along with ‘their’ children. WTF? You can’t get thru the damn day without some sodomite bullsh*t smacking you in the face...enough!
Gays dont shop JC Penny either.
Prezactly. I know. Used to work in the fashion industry. JCP would be ‘beneath them’, dahling. Nothing but ‘bridge’ or ‘high-end’ establishment were considered ‘good enough’.
Same goes for the communists I knew in the UK (academics). While touting that they were fighting for the ‘common man’.......they were driving the latest Volvos, eating at the latest trendy restaurant, buying the most expensive coffee, shopping at the trendiest boutique.....while degrading the ‘working class’ as beneath them (which most of them came from)....and saying that they were FOR them.
I was a liberal when I moved there. I came back a conservative (in the USA meaning of the word. NOT the ‘European’).
Ya know these guys are doing more than holding hands and kissing.
I’ll never shop there again.
So what dolt ever sold this to JCP?
I didn’t have too big of a problem with Ellen, she wasn’t in the ad with her “partner”. This, this is different. Is anybody advertising to God fearing WASPS anymore? I demand government intervention to make me feel better! :D
“I demand government intervention to make me feel better!”
Not a conservative ideal by any stretch, Libertarian distortions notwhithstanding.
It’s all about ‘marketing in the board room’. Lots of gays in those positions, now (particulary in the ‘creative arts). Green Lantern has just gone ‘gay’.
Even if the result is a public flop of the company?
Well I guess those perfumed princes don’t care. They’ve all got their golden parachutes.
