Home Depot, JC Penney, Target on the Wrong Side of the Marriage Debate

With President Obama coming out in support of same-sex marriage, along with North Carolina voting overwhelmingly to amend its constitution in support of traditional marriage, combined with the 1st Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston ruling the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) unconstitutional, the debate over marriage in the U.S. is white HOT.

Sadly, several large U.S. retailers have chosen to align themselves with the pro-same-sex marriage lobby. Home Depot long ago took sides in the marriage debate. More recently, Target and JC Penney joined Home Depot in support of same-sex marriage. Target has pledged $120,000 to promote the legalization of same-sex marriage. JC Penney has released a Father’s Day ad that shows two gay dads hugging their children. The ad reads, “What makes Dad so cool? He's the swim coach, tent maker, best friend, bike fixer and hug giver -- all rolled into one. Or two.”

Read more about the JC Penney ad here. Find out more about Home Depot and Target at American Family Association. Also, if you feel, as Michelle and I do, that such actions by these retailers mean that you will no longer shop there, make sure that you make your local managers aware of your decision.
