"Everyone works hard for their money, and they want to spend their money with companies that have the same values as them," she adds. "And JC Penney stated that Ellen DeGeneres shares the same values that they do. So obviously, it’s not the same as Christians or conservatives, which is unfortunate [because] JC Penney was founded by a Christian man."

And they have the nerve to wonder why we make fun of them?

Most people don't actually investigate the "values" of the companies they buy from. Some christians with too much time on their hands, and, sadly, some gays with too much anger in their hearts spend way too much of their lives trying to find reasons to create boycotts. or to punish those who don't agree with them.

They feel like a company needs to be hurt if the owner uses his/her own money for a cause they don't believe in. Or if they advertise to a group they hate. Did the "million" moms count up the number of gays otherwise employed by Penney? If Penney were to fire all of the gays on its payroll, there would be no JC Penney.

Some in our community have also made unreasonable demands and punished the workers in companies, and their families, for something the boss does in his/her spare time or with his/her money.

All of this has gotten completely out of hand. If an individual doesn't want to shop someplace for whatever reason, s/he should simply not shop there. There is no good reason for making it into such a major piece of hatred.

I still think that "One Million Moms" never had more than 11 members probably.

Ellen in the third Ozzie and Harriet bed raises a few semi comedic questions, but I think we all know JC Penney, Kmart and Sears have a tough battle against Target and Wallymart.

Not the best directed and edited commercial - the timing's a little flat, the laugh track gag is not so fresh, but I don't see any of this as Ellen's fault.

Wrong “Father”?!
THANK GOD FOR ANOTHER AMAZING EXAMPLE OF DOOMED AMERICANS EATING THEIR CHILDREN!

And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters, which the LORD thy God hath given thee, in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee. So that the man that is tender among you, and very delicate, his eye shall be evil toward his brother.(Dt. 28:53-54.)

Father in Troy, OH, is charged with raping 3 of his adopted sons and prostituting out his 10-year-old son to 2 men. He offered an undercover cop sex with one of his boys.“It’s just shocking,” the prosecutor said.

GodSmack!

The shocking thing is that you’re prosecuting him instead of making him father of the year.

You pay the priests and the teachers to rape your children every day; why can’t he rape his own children?

Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Now that's very funny in a psychotic,schizophrenic sort of way! Have you ever attempted to seek help for these delusional ideas that you suffer from? Perhaps you'd be happier in the good Rev Phelps sect,they would seem to fit you to a tee! Move along now little nut job,sane people are trying to talk here!

Could be a loss. If they take in less money than their increased mailing costs. Just because they get a larger mailing list doesn't mean they're going to make more money.

Hey nutcase, are you arguing that no str8 fathers incest their daughters around the world?

Or are you intending to reveal the depth of your sickness by ignoring the fact that the overwhelming percentage of child sex abuse takes place within extended nuclear families, which are obviously overwhelmingly str8 parented families?

And if I were to point out how damn many str8 men violently rape women, would that lead you to similarly defame all str8 men?

Here, follow the buybull, you nutcase:

"But if ... evidences of virginity are not found for the young woman, then they shall bring out the young woman to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her to death with stones..." (Deuteronomy 22:20,21)

"If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life maimed, rather than having two hands, to go to hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched." (Mark 9:43)

Why do you hate GLBT's so much, that you spread vicious lies about us? What have we ever done to YOU, personally???

The Ellen commercials were hilarious, and certainly not "lame". Get a life.
