Target pushes for U.S. government to punish churches and Christian business owners
afa ^ | 4/30/19 | afa

Posted on 05/15/2019 4:29:34 PM PDT by Roman_War_Criminal

Over 1.5 million families have pledged to stop shopping at Target since it announced it would allow men to enter women’s dressing rooms and bathrooms, putting women and children in danger of sexual assault.

AFA has made it clear since the boycott began that our worries do not stem from fear of the transgender community, but rather from the very real threat that predators and voyeurs, or anyone with evil intentions, would take advantage of the Target bathroom policy to harm women and children. And they have.

Now Target has gone on public record stating they fully and wholeheartedly support the passage of the Equality Act now before Congress, meaning it supports government-sanctioned discrimination against churches and Christian business owners.

The so-called "Equality Act" is nothing more than a repackaged version of the Employment Non Discrimination Act (ENDA). This legislation has been driven for years by rabid homosexual activist groups like Human Rights Campaign and is specifically designed to place sexual liberty above religious liberty and the First Amendment.

The left outrageously uses their MSM propaganda machine to claim our plurality of Christianity is evil. They need chastised as bigots and racists just as is typically done when other minorities or demographics are spoken against.

anyone would be CRAZY to shop in a store which invites or permits dangerous perverts (and especially into its restrooms)

we find other stores to be just as good or even better on merchandise and pricing, anyway

we have not stepped foot into Target since it announced its Pervert Bathroom Policy

I’d say “it is amazing that so many of these businesses intentionally alienate half of their informed, likely customer base, and then double down on stupid to the point that even the uninformed customer base starts to catch on on how much the company hates them....

I’d say that, except I realize that mass insanity has become epidemic ... no, pandemic... to the point that when a company (or individual) makes a rational decision I am kind of pleasantly surprised.

Two generations of leftist propaganda through the ‘educational’ system and the media has finally destroyed whatever common sense, logic, free thought that humanity ever may have had.

Target has raced beyond virtue signaling. They have moved into advocacy for the radical fringe. If this bill ever passed it would used as a club against religion and school systems. Your 13 daughter would have to share the locker room and shower with some creep who claimed he was a girl that day and nothing could be done about it. Target is the enemy now and a clear and present danger.

Well, I was a little surprised to see Northrup Grumman on that list. I’d have thought that they wanted to remain sane.

Then I got to thinking that maybe they turned ‘PC’ to keep doing business with the 0bama Pentagon.....

And then I did further research and discovered that their current President / CEO, Kathy Warden is an old Clinton Comrade.

About ten years ago, we hosted a good sized Thanksgiving dinner for relatives and friends.

We couldn’t find any Thanksgiving ornaments honoring thanksgiving at Target.. There was some fall stuff but nothing honoring Thanksgiving. The manager at Target, said they never carried anything that said Thanksgiving.

Shortly, after that Target stopped letting Salvation Army bell ringers collect donations at their stores. My wife had rang bells with a church group, and I had with a group of church men. We were stunned. Walmart allowed more of us to ring the bells at both entrances/exits.

The US Senate and President Trump: the reason this piece of trash legislation will never become law.

I thank the Good Lord once again for President Trump.

I never signed a petition to boycott Target. I don’t sign such things online. But I have boycotted Target. I haven’t been to a Target since the boycott began. I do support AFA and their programs.

I used to go to Target a lot because they have a store close to my home but not anymore. Not a dime of my money goes to them.

I’ve been boycotting Target due to this issue.

Ironically, the one time I’ve been in a Target store over the past year was because I needed to use the restroom.

Target's sins go way farther back than the bathroom issue.

I haven't been in one in over 8 years. And I used to be an avid Target customer.
