What they believe is more important than reality itself because their belief has become their reality.

This is as old as man himself. Even Jesus remarked on this phenomenon:

“To what, then, can I compare the people of this generation? What are they like? They are like children sitting in the marketplace and calling out to each other:
“‘We played the flute for you,
and you did not dance;
we sang a dirge,
and you did not cry.’
They are sitting in the middle of the hustle and bustle of real life and wondering why others don't respond to their ideas of reality, ideas that also happen to get cause and effect exactly backwards.

These people are evil for using the equals sign to further their agenda. The word “Redefine” would be more accurate.

"Why are all these major retailers going to these lengths for 3.5% of the population? Are they crazy?"

Where do you think these gay and lesbian people work? Department stores, particularly in management.

I believe the people now at the top in these companies are most likely gay...

Make that "queer" (we on FR really ought to drop that word "gay" and go with what we called them in the good ol' days).

“It is actually less 1.8% of the population is homosexual. It is a bit higher in Liberal big cities. Even in San Francisco, I doubt the population is more than 3% gay.”

Thanks for correcting that, the erroneous 3.5% had been posted multiple times. The higher number comes from the homo lobby itself to inflate their perceived acceptance numbers. This small # of sexual deviants should be more loudly quoted by the right, we don’t need to encourage more of it, it needs to be discouraged. Overthrow homo marriage by initiatives wherever the Democrats try to force it via laws.

My comment was made in terms of not having a racist AG, pro-queer DOJ, an FBI that is used to investigate political opponents, matters such as these.

As far as the $$$ goes, let's be realistic, no way do the Republicans want to take the blame for a government shutdown. Look at what it did for Clinton's reelection efforts: it was a HUGE plus for him that the GOP (through the MSM) falsely got blamed for it.

Also, WTH can really be done when the Senate is still under RAT control and is led by a true sh*tbag that won't let any budgetary bills on the floor?

The freak show is coming to an end, I believe there will be much, if not massive, amounts of improvement in nearly every facet of life once the circus is thrown out of town.

Back in the late 70’s and 80’s I noticed how much money this element of society had to spend. In New York, not only in the Village, but midtown and in the Hampton's. CBS entertainment, N.Y.Stock Exchange to give a couple of examples of blatant behavior. Almost all of the clubs were very well represented by the free spenders. Rule of thumb was always demand the bartender open your beer in front of you and never leave a drink unattended. Bottom line.....money talks and b___s____ walks.

It’s a private business and they should be able to do whatever they want. Now we can watch their sales drop and watch them scratch their heads asking why.

Ok, Macy’s, have it as you wish. I am a conservative woman, and I SHOP.

And I have choices — Bloomingdales, Sears, Lord and Taylor, and a myriad of knock off stores that sell designer clothes at much cheaper prices.

If other stores were smart, they’d capitalize on this as Macy’s enjoys a very healthy market in a lot of areas.

The word 'pride' used over and over in order to try and cover the overt perversion of God's plan is particularly offensive.

Ezekiel 16:48-50

"48 As I live, saith the Lord God, Sodom thy sister hath not done, she nor her daughters, as thou hast done, thou and thy daughters.

49 Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.

50 And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good."

OMG!!

Thank you for posting this. Heck, I didn’t know about Target and JCP. Now Macy’s, too. Guess I’ll have to avoid all of them. Funny, because of their various store categories, I liked all of them pretty much.

God help me if Nordstrom goes gay. Please say it ain’t so.

They have no business BLATANTLY promoting sickening org’s like this in that photo.

“Why are all these major retailers going to these lengths for 3.5% of the population? Are they crazy?”

Good question. And the other side of the coin is why they overtly antagonize 50% or more of the population, who may well get their merchandise elsewhere (like yours truly).

But they're not alone - many state, local, and federal politicans (and public institutions) bow to the gay mafia as well. Sickening and unnecessary, but true.

abundance of idleness

That's a big part of the problem. If these people were busy doing something constructive, they wouldn't have the time or energy to engage in destruction.

We had a Democrat-controlled White House and U.S. Senate, as well as a liberal MSM covering for them. so it’s not like Republicans and conservatives were all powerful.

Where? Like most reasonably thrifty Americans, when I need clothing I would normally shop at places like these two stores. What’s the alternative? Gap’s lost too. It seems like it’s almost impossible to buy clothing anywhere that even remotely supports conservative values.

Well, another store to shun and another letter to write (which will end up being read and tossed in the circular file by someone who will laugh at the backward bigotry of it). I won’t miss the place myself. Our local Macy’s has a sparse selection of overpriced junk, with very little actual style to be found anywhere.

I was going to say that it will only be a matter of time before Macy’s features tranvestites in its Thanksgiving Day parade, but I see from another post they already have. I wonder how much longer God will suffer the perversion and sickness of this nation.

"If you’ve noticed, most of the TV and print ads now have a distinctly “Latin” flavor to them and most of the models used are either Hispanic or Black. I feel like I’m living in a third world country these days. When opening a newspaper the first photo you see on the front page is usually of a black person or family or group."

Exactly right. The ads that came with my Sunday newspaper largely feature Hispanic and black models, as though this is the new reality. It's fine for other countries to want to keep their demographic makeup, but Americans are racist for wanting to do so.

"One partcularly eggregious ad I recall is for a home security system, where the burglar was a white male and the home being burgled was fantastically upscale and the occupants were a Black family. The get away with these perverse portrayals all of the time yet no one ever says anything about them."

I know the one you mean. You will NEVER see a black criminal in a commercial. I've actually wanted to call that alarm company, just for the hell of it, and ask them why they don't adhere a little more to reality, and if they are in fact bigoted against white people.

“...I’ve got 3 Macy’s gift cards...”

What you have is an opportunity for guerilla warfare. Go in and ask the sales clerk where their ‘patriotic attire’ section is, as you want to buy something appropriate for a Fourth of July celebration. :-)

A while back I resolved to quit using "gay". I'm tired of playing along with their demands to redefine the language in order to make something repellent seem more palatable. I often use "sodomite."

Macy’s on Friday began selling a line of t-shirts to coincide with Gay Pride month.

The shirts will be available in 6 stores, including Boston Downtown, Columbus Easton, Los Angeles Beverly Center, Macy’s Minneapolis, Saint Louis West County and San Francisco Union Square.

One-hundred percent of sales will go to the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation’s largest gay rights advocate, HRC said in a blog post.

One shirt says “Vote Equality” and another “Love Conquers Hate” along with the HRC logo.

The shirts will be displayed prominently in stores along with HRC signage.

According to HRC, Macy’s “has consistently rated highly on the HRC Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index, the national standard in evaluating policies, practices and diversity efforts relating to LGBT workers.”

     Macy’s was the first big retailer to give equal benefits to gay and lesbian employees. Earlier this year, one of the company’s ads featured a gay wedding cake with a subtle photo of two grooms on top. That drew a small amount of criticism but a large amount of praise from some members of the public.

     Macy’s senior vice president William Hawthorne says of the new Gay Pride Month event, “Macy’s is proud to recognize and honor our LGBT employees and customers during Pride Month with our nationwide Pride+Joy campaign.”

     He added, “During Pride Month and throughout the year, we will remain committed to supporting the LGBT community through a variety of initiatives including our long-standing partnership with the Human Rights Campaign.” ###

As we kick off LGBT Pride month today

Pride is one of the seven deadly sins. Along with lust and gluttony.

National hook-up month. During Houston’s Gay Pride parade, they have sex in the restrooms along the parade route.

There's nothing "gay" about photos of gay pride parades, it's easy to call them what they are: homosexuals.

.......

Yep, those are some great excuses for them not accomplishing anything (good.) They are even trying to restore cuts they made in their signature (and only) achievement, the debt limit bill.

After 8 years of a GWB POTUS, Republicans developed tons and tons of great excuses for Bush. (My favorite was always "Democrats wanted him to do that")

So you prove my point, when Romney POTUS looks nothing like his promises we will see some more fancy excuse making, as with Boehner.

RE :”Of course debt is up $1.6 trillion
remember that vote that jammed the increase in the debt ceiling down out throats? Just before our debt was downgraded?
Boner et al believed “compromise” and putting the Dept of Defense and MEDICARE on the table for “sequestration” (a sacrificial lamb) would make the democrats finally grow up after running through another $1.5 trillion increase in their allowance - just before the elections

Remember??? I did a vanity on ithere immediately after the House passed it.

Passed a deal that delays all cuts until after the election, and then claiming that those cuts that take place after the election with a new congress and POTUS (maybe), are cuts that those voting for it claim really don't want???, while calling it a success was really sleazy. And it was Boehners signature achievement yet. He said it was 99% of what he wanted, but it was really what those in both parties who voted for it (Ryan and Pelosi together) didn't want ???

Glad you mentioned that.

When that showdown was taking place and individual House members were getting on camera and saying they wanted the government to shutdown, and many here were cheering them on, I and only a few were asking why they were not trying to pin the shutdown on Obama to force him to give in, rather than giving him a club to beat them senseless with and force them to cave to him, which they of course did, much like what happened in 1994. They learned nothing from history.

I kept posting in comments that the idea was to get Obama to cave, not to trap themselves so their party caves (again and again, so humiliating.)

” Meanwhile the democrats knew they had no intention of stopping spending, that $1.6 trillion would tide them through obama’s next election before raising the debt ceiling again, and that the GOP does not have the stones to stop them

but only a few people and some FOX news analysts seemed to notice, or care “
