If anyone wasn’t aware of One Million Moms, that may be about to change.
Today, the pressure group intending to promote good morals in media and consumer business (but generally just spreading hate, fear and intolerance) e-mailed out this missive, in response to the Orlando shootings in an LGBTQ nightclub, stoked by the same kind of hatred that One Million Moms pumps pout on a weekly basis.
The nation continues to mourn over the senseless violence and loss of life in the Orlando shooting. This is a time when a nation must come together, reminding that God loves all people, and all are His creation, made in His own image. We know there are millions praying for the families and friends of the victims, and we ask all to join together with them and for those who are wounded, that a healing of both the body and the community will be reality.
In April, Target publicized its corporate policy which allows men to frequent female restrooms and changing facilities. We view this policy as a danger to women and children because it provides a possible gateway for sexual predators to gain access to their victims.
Since Target announced this dangerous policy in late April over 1.3 million people have signed the boycott Target pledge. This doesn’t include the millions of Americans who didn’t sign the pledge but feel the same way about Target.
Last week AFA attended the annual Target shareholder meeting on your behalf. We voiced the concerns regarding the company’s dangerous policy which allows men free access to the same facilities as little girls. To no surprise, Target snubbed the AFA representative and ultimately snubbed you.
This week we are announcing a new initiative to the #BoycottTarget pledge called Target Isn’t Listening. This initiative seeks to add 50,000 potential Target shoppers to our boycott Target pledge this week, June 13-17. While we are grateful for the over a million that have pledged to boycott Target, we know there are millions more that have the same sympathy but haven’t signed the pledge.
If anyone has seen a greater 180 degree turn between that first and second paragraph I would love to hear it.
Maybe we could launch a #DontBoycottTarget pledge instead?
