Luxury retailer Nordstrom Inc. has jumped into the controversial gay marriage debate by openly supporting the rights of gay and lesbians to marry.

The Seattle retailer joins other prominent Washington corporations such as Starbucks Corp. and Amazon.com Inc. in favor of approving Referendum 74 to legalize same-sex marriage in the state.

They are the 1%!

The other 99% should boycott

surprised???

the first time i ever walked into a Bloomingdales in NYC was 1985 with my girlfriend...within the span of 10 minutes 3 different guys hit on me while she was standing there- she thought it was funny, i was repulsed and said “i’m getting the F out of this place now!”...

But the only salient point is this? has some city withheld a permit due to their beliefs? Frankly, I don’t care what they believe. I am more inclined to support Chic Fil-A, but liberty informs us that as long as government does not reward or punish a company for their beliefs, then the concept of liberty is upheld.

Of course using the same criteria, you have to switch to Linux.

Microsoft and Apple are both off the table.

Used to be a great clothes store.

Now just a bunch of rich white urban libs shop there and fullfill Thorstein Veblen's theory of consumption.

Gays are very prominent in most retailers. They dominate in window decorating and styling manikins and styling rooms and all furnishings at a retailer.

They are a private company. If you support the right of Chick Fil-A, another private company, to take a stand on an issue, why would you be against another private company taking a stand on an issue that you might be against?

You don’t have to agree with it but it’s their right as a private company, no?

Let’s just not by hypocritical.

So is Nordstrom going to support the right of Muslims to have 4 wives? How about allowing a gay man to have 4 husbands? Will Nordstrom support the lowering of the legal age to marry (like in the Middle East where a nine year old girl can marry a 40 year old man). It never ends with liberals. Incremental-ism is the key. Eventually, they always demand more.

If I have a right to eat at Chick-fil-a because I agree with them, then why would I not have a right to boycott Nordstrom because I disagree with them? What is hypocritical about that?

Anybody who does business with companies pushing sick deviant sodomy should be ashamed of themselves.

Can’t wait for my next Nordstrom Rack email....they will get a load from me! And I’ll drop them. The Nordstrom family who started the company must be rolling in their graves

I don’t see why they cannot just loathe and despise homosexuals like all good Americans do!

It is normal, natural, and healthy to be disgusted and sickened by unnatural abnormal sodomites.

Normal Americans who are sickened by disgusting behavior have nothing at all to apologize for.

When I see a same sex couple making out in a NYC subway car, I move to another car.

I told this once to my girlfriend, a woman I belive to be totally straight, and she said, ‘you are a homophobe.’

A popular, PC, response to my dislike of seeing affectionate behavior between man/man or woman/woman, is

‘ANY affection shown in public is inappropriate.’

This is total gay propaganda. Certainly a man and woman making out, may not be appropriate at times, but it is NOT disgusting or abnormal, like when the same sex couples do it.

It does NOT disgust me; it makes me want to find a woman so I can do that too!

The gays are smart; they have learned all the false arguments, to justify anything they do, and to use it to mock heterosexuals.

Where are the pods?

We have now The Invasions of the Heterosexual Snatchers.

Ordinary people, straights, who are not necessarily liberal, have such sympathy and admiration for gays, that like my friend, who called me a homophobe, these heterosexuals think that the ONLY bad people are ‘homophobic’ straights who disapprove of what the gays do. To certain straight people, gays can LITERALLY do NO wrong. I know several such people myelf.

Where are the pods? In the original Invasion of the Body Snatchers, for very person that was to be remade, there was a POD like creation to replace the person and turn him into pure evil. Great old movie with Kevin McCarthy.

So I call our misguided straight friends,victims of the Invasion of the Heterosexuals.

Where are the pods, where are the pods?

The title homophobe should be worn with pride. There is no reason to not offend queers and their ilk.

Exactly! Jesus taught us long ago to shun and detest homosexuals when he drove them all out of the temple!
