Humorist (and lesbian) Fran Leibowitz once said (some 40 years ago) that if you removed everything gay from American culture you’d be left with Let’s Make a Deal.
Well, anti-gay activist Linda Harvey is living that nightmare. She says there’s nowhere left for her to shop anymore, because few major businesses oppose LGBT equality. The Mission: America founder and radio host wrote for conspiracy site World Net Daily to complain that in the era of big business rallying behind LGBT rights.
“For any Christian who wants to spend hard-earned dollars with family-friendly, Christian-affirming retailers, restaurants and service providers, the list is growing shorter all the time.
I stopped shopping at Macy’s in 2011 after learning about the retailer’s grossly unjust policy against women.
Macy’s management said ‘yes’ to a transsexual young man’s demand to change in the women’s dressing room and rejected a Christian employee’s attempt to block his inappropriate access, even firing her because of her principled actions.”
Oh, Linda, the list goes on…
“Then there’s Target. Where to start? Selling ‘gay pride’ T-shirts a few years back was bad enough, but Target is now ‘proudly standing’ with homosexuals and cross-dressers who want to change America’s 1964 Civil Rights Act to add ‘sexual orientation’ and ‘gender identity’.
Joining Target in supporting this anti-American, pro-deviance legislation are Amazon, General Mills, Google, Facebook, Paypal, Levi-Strauss and others.”
Harvey also urges good homophobic Christians to avoid Wal-Mart, as well as Best Buy, Abercrombie & Fitch, American Eagle Outfitters, Barnes & Noble, CVS, Dell, DIRECTV, E-Bay, Ford Motor Co., The Gap, Old Navy, Banana Republic, General Motors, Hallmark, Home Depot, IKEA, JC Penney, Levi-Strauss & Co., Macy’s, Mattel, Nationwide, Nike, Nissan, Nordstrom, Office Depot, Staples, Starbuck’s, TJ Maxx and Marshall’s, Volkswagen and Walgreen’s.
But she says there are still places homophobes can band together to shop. Like Auto Zone, Bed Bath & Beyond, who apparently don’t do very much on LGBT rights. Yes, we can see why you dress like that and have that haircut. See you next Tuesday. (via Pink News)
