I guess this guy better organize a boycott of Target.
Tarrget can't win, they either piss of the gay marriage supporters, or piss off the other side. They are better off doing nothing.

I will be selling my Target stock and it has nothing to do with gay marriage.
Im sick of their political pandering, run your business, give to any cause you want, but keep it between you and the IRS.

the reality is they know it makes good business sense to support marriage equality.

Really? I didn't think the boycott from about a year ago had that much affect on their business. I think it would make better business sense to stay out of politics completely. Target won't be on any ballot this year. I go there because they are "local", have fresh, good produce, and I know the layout. No support/non support for gay marriage will change my shopping ways :)

At least from the article I get the feeling that the shirts are only available online.

Good idea. Have you SEEN the sort of people who frequent that store? LMAO

As for the rest, we're getting a bit tired about Christians ramming their lunatic religion down our throat. It's time y'all grew up and accepted some responsibility.:D

Have a nice day.

You are blind, or forget recent history if you think it is only "right wing wackjobs" that engage in this type of behavior.

Target should print up some hoodies that say "bigot"; "bully"; "homophobe"; and "KKK"
.
That would make everybody happy

Remember this is the worlds largest religion & we have a say in the election for president.

The following are excerpts on homosexuality, taken from the Saudi Ministry of Education Textbooks for Islamic Studies:

"Homosexuality is one of the most disgusting sins and greatest crimes.... It is a vile perversion that goes against sound nature, and is one of the most corrupting and hideous sins.... The punishment for homosexuality is death. Both the active and passive participants are to be killed whether or not they have previously had sexual intercourse in the context of a legal marriage.... Some of the companions of the Prophet stated that [the perpetrator] is to be burned with fire. It has also been said that he should be stoned, or thrown from a high place."

Sounds like someone had some issues - you know, the strange yearning sort of thing. And as the Muslim men could not be responsible for their own urges - hence covering up their women - it sort of makes you wonder if they wrote something so extreme just to formally deny whatever other urges they might privately have.

I wonder if Mohammed would have been a top, bottom or switch.
