J.C. Penney Floundering After Endorsing Gay Marriage

Have you ever heard of Kemmerer, Wyoming?  It is the county seat of Lincoln County and according to the 2010 Census has a population of 2,656.

On April 14, 1902, three businessmen partnered and opened a retail store called The Golden Rule.  In the next few years, they opened two more stores in the area, but in 1907, two of the partners, Thomas Callahan and Guy Johnson dissolved their partnership.  The remaining partner, James Cash Penney managed to purchase full interest in all three stores and took control from there.  In 1909, he moved his headquarters to Salt Lake City, Utah and by 1912 he had a grand total of 34 stores located throughout the Rocky Mountain states.  In 1913, James Cash Penney placed all of his stores under the name of J.C. Penney and the rest is history.

The Great Depression hit Penney hard and he nearly lost everything he had.  In an effort to salvage his retail company, he borrowed on his life insurance policies in order to meet payroll.  The stress of the Great Depression and the financial burden it placed on Penney took its toll on his health and he ended up admitting himself into Battle Creek Sanitarium for treatment.

While at the sanitarium, it is reported that Penney heard the hymn God Will Take Care of You being sung in the sanitarium chapel.  He was so moved by the hymn that he gave his life to Christ and became a born-again Christian.

This makes me wonder if Penney was alive today (he died in 1971 at the age of 95), would he have approved of the company’s decision to endorse homosexuality and bring famed lesbian Ellen DeGeneres to be the new company spokesperson?  In February of this year, that is exactly what J.C. Penney did.  Just prior to Father’s Day, J.C. Penney launched an ad campaign promoting gay fathers.

When the company announced their gay activist plans in February, their stock sold for $41.32 a share.  Groups like the American Family Association and One Million Moms took to the Internet to lead an effort to boycott the company and hopefully make them change their policy or regret having done so.  As of the time of writing this about them, J.C. Penney’s stock had plunged to a low of $20.02.  In addition to their stock dropping to less than half of what it was, Standard & Poor’s Rating Service has taken the action to lower the company’s credit ranking for the second time in two months where it is now four levels into junk territory.

American Family Association director of special projects Randy Sharp says the timing of the stock plunge just happened to coincide with the company’s two full page ads in the their catalog that features a pair of gay dads and gay moms.  Sharp commented:

"A company loses money [and] they lose sales when they offend their customers -- and this is exactly what's happened with JC Penney.  Moms and dads, traditional families find it offensive that JC Penney is now going into the activist mode for homosexual marriage."

The company’s drastic downturn caused Michael Francis to resign as president of J.C. Penney after only 7 months at the helm.  All indications say that Francis was responsible for the changes in the company’s marketing policies, although CEO Dan Celia may also share part of the blame as well.

James Cash Penney built an empire of retail stores and as a born-again Christian, he would never have let his company embrace something so anti-biblical as homosexuality.  To coin an old expression, he probably turned over in his grave a few times since the company’s February announcement.

Until the leadership of J.C. Penney changes their current endorsement of homosexuality and gay marriage, I urge everyone to continue to avoid giving them your business.  There are plenty of other businesses out there that honor traditional families and family values that would greatly benefit from your dollars and cents.  As Christians we need to make our voices heard loud and clear and our voice is saying NO to the gay agenda of J.C. Penney!

    when the gay comunity is less than 5% of the population , I think that is a very small % to cater too and ignoring the other 95% just not smart, and yes maybe they do do 10% of the spending but still not enough to really do well. JC penny use tobe my favorite store too

    • The__Bobster

      It's 2% at best. They control the media, so their numbers appear greater.

  • InvisibleHandInMyPants

    We need a list of all businesses that serve gay people. Any gay people. Those businesses should be boycotted. And no gays in the church either. That includes the preists who molest young boys. We need a list!!1!
    JCP is selling gay clothes. And they have gay salespeople. The manikins look gay too. I heard a friend tell a story she overheard at the beauty shop that a womans cousin said she met a guy who said his brother was propositioned by a gay guy in the dressing room area at a local JCP. Disgusting!

    • http://www.facebook.com/aemoreira81 Adam Moreira

      That list would be: just about every company in America, including companies that engage in B-to-B.

      As for your friend, she could be a great storyteller.

      • prezelect1

        I'm dumb, what is B-to-B? Back to Back? B-B-Q, nah! that's got a Q, well, I guess it could be B-B and the Q stand for queer or Queen

        • http://www.facebook.com/aemoreira81 Adam Moreira

          B-to-B - business to business. That should have seen plainly obvious in that context.

    • bwebb

      Old Navy endorses gays. They print t-shirts with "gay pride" and rainbow colors.

      • InvisibleHandInMyPants

        They must be stopped!!1!

        • Christian Patriot

          Why stop them? I actually like to know who is with me and who is agin' me! Articles like this help me make choices as to where my money should be spent. I only learned about JCP here. My Penny's card is shredded! I don't think a 'pole smoker' wants to meet me in the dressing room.

      • The Ninja Warrior

        Boycott them to .

      • The__Bobster

        Old Niggy endorses every perversion.

    • Jojo

      Why should a store be penalized for SERVING gays? Promoting the gay lifestyle is one thing, demonizing a business for selling a gay person a cheeseburger or selling a suit is another.

      • InvisibleHandInMyPants

        What are you, some kinda liebrul? Gay workers. Gay customers. Who cares? If you boycott JCP for supporting gay rights, you should be consistent and boycott ALL business interactions with gays.

      • prezelect1

        Because dummy they are promoting the gay lifestyle in their promotions and deserve to be blackballed going against the majority.

    • Lia

      The Episcopal Church endorsed gay "pastors" and look what has happened to them!!! They have fallen apart and are basically bankrupt. Their congregations have fallen apart and they now have millions of dollars in real estate they can't give away. I hope Pennys, Target and all the rest of them go bankrupt. There are alot of other places to shop.

    • Guest

      My goodness. What a sad day. Earlier in this post people were talking about shipping gays off to an island and others talked of killing them. And then they pretended to be Christian. The God I believe in would not condone such action. No gays in the church? Really? How sick this makes me. I'll pray for all of you. My God would be happy to have them in church. I believe God is crying over how you are treating and speaking of his children.

  • Screeminmeeme

    Boycotts work.

    I'm sick to death of gays shoving their lifestyle down our throats. Not being satisfied with people showing tolerance for it, they demand that we all condone and celebrate it. I don't care what people do in the privacy of their own homes, but grotesquely, vulgarly sashaying naked in gay pride parades (with children there), and pressuring schools to endorse the gay lifestyle by bringing in homosexuals to speak to their students, thus indoctrinating them, is very problematic and I oppose such behaviors.

    Those in today's in-your-face militant LBGT movement is determined to get their own way. They put on a good face until you voice your opposition and then their true colors show. And our legislature is so politically correct, that they can't bring themselves to speak against the attempts by gays to have all kinds of laws changed in their favor.

    I, for one, won't celebrate their perversions, but neither will I go out looking for gays so that I can corner them and scream bible verses at them...they don't have to answer to me. Ultimately, though, they, like we all, must answer to a holy God for their behavior.

          What's the matter roder...no one thanking you for your perversion? You can do whatever you want in your own bedroom--but decent folks are highly offended by the amoral behaviors exhibited by mindless homosexuals and lesbians. That lbgt colloition is just another filthy, disgraceful, moronic, hate-mongering group comprised of militant sadomasochists.

        • AlarmBelle

          rodermck; if they were "mindless robots" as you believe, they would not be using common sense and staying true to their beliefs/christian faith. Our 'allegiance' is to the one and only Almighty God; creator of all and not mindless robots that just repeat and follow the crowd like you do. Hey, enjoy your trip. We're doing fine. It's the left with all the personal turmoil and unsuccessful lives. Ever wonder why?

          HE sure does !!! And so do all of us normal hetrosexual Americans who are standing up to these ugly, bigoted ,sodomites. It is a real shame that slop like Michael Francis would ruin a good company like J.C.Penny for his own personnel agenda , but taking Pennys down is necessary as it is part of the fight for the Tradition of GODS Holy Matrimony and traditional morals that we must adhere to in civilized society.

          Why do you lefties even 'want' our consent on your sinful behaviors? Why do you even 'care?' We don't care what you do in private, sexually or otherwise. But you are not going to teach it to our children, period! We already teach them what GOD says about it. THAT just irritates you don't it?

        Thank you for speaking up. Businesses should not push political agendas. Retail should stick with marketing products and stop promoting the gay lifestyle which is contrary to the morals of the majority of shoppers. Office Depot is another business that is promoting and celebrating the gay lifestyle.

        It would be good for us to pray for their conversion to Christian faith. Do we remember the humility of...There but for the grace of God go I. ?

        • Rhonda Anderson

          Do we remember that gay's are an abomination to God.

        • Mainman12

          Homosexuality, the acts of homosexuality themselves are an abomination to God; that has always been true. But never forget, our God is a merciful God and any sinner, no matter what the sin, even murder (Remember David?) who repents and confesses his sin will be forgiven. Inasmuch as this sin is indeed a mortal sin, our prayers cannot remove the sin. But we can pray that their hearts will be changed and they will hear God's calling them to repentance. For some have so repented just as some abortion doctors have repented and become active Pro-Lifers. We are to hate the sin but to also love the sinner.

        • rodermck

          blah!!.. blah!!.. blah!!.. church speak trying to use love for your avoidence of tolerance!!.. your problem to much wrong church to many people off you never spend time with other peoples and let the church lead you to into intolerance also the church teaches got his perfect so unless he vengeful there can be no abomination also you use sin like a club to punish people with that word i have gone to many differnent churches very few are that way the ones that are i run away fast as i can i have know many people that go to chruch and aren't that way the big question is why are you that way?.. my answer is some people are much easly brain washed or led that way or there parent's grandparent's were that way so the cycle has never been broken and goes from generation to generation and people that have no ability or reason to change otherwise they would be ostricised from there freinds and churches and don't have the moral courage to change

        • AlarmBelle

          KEY WORDS being, IF they confess and repent. They refuse to. What do you expect us to do? It's their souls. Their decision.
          Do not cast your pearls before swine. We do not continue 'preaching' to them if they do not want to hear.
          Explain God hating Esau??? And hating and already condemning Satan to death??? Some become unteachable and one can fall so far away from God that he will give up attempting to bring things about to try to bring you to repentance and back to Him. You're really in a heap of trouble at that point.

          Rhonda, as I just noticed in another one of your posts, it's not a "gay" PERSON that is the abomination. It is their ACTION that is an abomination, just like any sinful ACTIONS anyone commits. GOD HATES SIN---NOT the sinner! He LOVES us---and wants us to REPENT from the sin!

        • BoycottJCPennyAndHomeDepot

          The Old Testament calls them sodomites, God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah because of their exceeding grievous wickedness. Less than 10 people in the cities were righteous. Therefore, God had to destroy it b/c of his righteousnes. Their wickedness was crying out to God. Reference Genesis 18:20-21 [Genesis 18: 20 - chapter 19: 28] In Romans chapter 1, it states he turned "them" over to a reprobate mind. IF God chooses to deliver any of them from this grotesque state of sinfulness, then he is merciful indeed.
          Romans 1 :26-32
          God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise
          also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their
          lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and
          receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
          28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality,[c] wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving,[d] unmerciful; 32 who,
          knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such
          things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of
          those who practice them.

          Rodermck: oh you have GOT to post proof with links for that egregious lie of yours!!!

        • AlarmBelle

          You can pray for them to wake up to the Truth and still 'hate' what they are attempting to do. God 'hated' Esau. There is a thing called, 'tough love' we love them as God's children enough to "punish them" when needed.
          CHristians are not 2nd class citizens. We don't 'give' ground; we take it. We shall not be moved. We live to please GOD not man. We are not to encourage sinful behavior and should 'separate' ourselves from it. Christians are not to 'enable' the behavior. Who said prayer with fighting for our children's minds cannot be done together? They've been warned by christians. They heard the Truth, but refuse to heed God's warning. The rest is totally up to them. They make their own way in life; and only they will be responsible for it. We are only to warn. If they do not want to hear it, we are finished with what He expects us to do. It falls on them. They will have no excuse for not hearing.

        • Mainman12

          I agree with everything you say except for one theological point about Esau. And none is in disagreement with what I wrote earlier. As one reads the entirety of Scripture God is ALWAYS revealed to us as the "God of Love.' In fact, we rightly KNOW that God IS LOVE. So it is not within God to be other than what HE IS. Therefore, God cannot hate. So what about Esau? The Hebrew language has very very few words in it compared to say, English. So those speaking at that time with a limited vocabulary wanted to express a distinction in God's eyes between Esau and his brother so they chose to use the word 'hate'. You may not agree with this but Scripture needs to be interpreted by the context of the whole Bible, and that context about God in whole is that "God is Love." So if we are to be like Christ we must hate the sin and love (desire the very best for) the sinner. Pray for me as I will for you dear sister in Christ.

      • rodermck

        didn't we have the salem which trials were they burned the them, didn't we intern american japanese during the second world war thank god we dont do that anymore but you want to do the same barbaric act maybe you and the ones should be shipped there but i wouln't want that some are paradises and you belong where there is nothing but them that would bee poetic justice

        • Cecilia

          You can see how angry this person is. If rodermck is a male or female, it matters not. It is just that they are terribly unhappy....raging to the point of incoherency. Usually people with these types of views have been hurt and unhappy all their lives. Homosexuality is a birth defect, plain and simple. When this condition can be detected in utero and remedied, you will see a) a huge increase in selective abortions or in utero surgical corrections and b) the immediate embrace of "right to life" by homosexuals.

    • granny007

      You took the words out of my mouth. I refuse to shop Penney's until they change their marketing plan. I fail to understand why they did this.

        to end this bigotory that you perputate the intolarece that we have had in this country for a long time we need to end racial , color, socio economic wars it will be the the down fall of this country and you and your kind will be part of this, its time all big stores do the same thing so you have no place to shop how long are you going to keep up this mindless bigotory woudn't be easer to boycot the chuches that teach this better yet get a mind that will tell you why this is wrong

        • Guest

          Bigotry is as bigotry does. Those who believe homosexuality is wrong have every right to stand up to the bullying and militancy of folks flouting their "pride". If you show it, the rest of us can display our disgust-that is freedom. If you don't want a reaction, then just go quietly into your dens and practice your actions in the sewers--we don't care. But, don't try to tell us we have no right to speak up when you trash our schools with your "tolerance". We will NOT give up our right to protest, We are not the intolerant ones, the Gay Pride movement is.

          Listen to reality. We are not your enemy, you are. Your own words and behavior condemn your members, not us. You can label us as anything you wish, but you are losing your own game.

          We have no fight with you as persons. You are members of society. We just don't agree with your agenda. That is not intolerance, it is freedom of thought. And we will continue to express our freedoms as long as we can.

          But there comes a point when all that can be said has been said. And since it is not us that either convicts or saves, but the Spirit, then at that point we step back. We sow the seed, another waters, but it is the Spirit that reaps the harvest. God bless.

        • cirbuck

          Tolerance is a weak word that denotes someone doesn't even have the conviction of their principals enough to try and counter a perversion or attack on the moral fiber of society as a whole. I have no "tolerance" for disgusting "alternative" lifestyle adherance that promotes some "misery loves company" agenda to bring more young minds into the sick acceptance. Whether you approach homosexuality from a spiritual or scientific point of view, it is still "un-natural" and a perversion of nature. To be so miserable in your perversion that you want to bring others into it with you so that you can edify and accept yourself is repugnant and "intolerable" by people that want to raise their children with natural and spiritual ideals. No one was locking up homosexuals, burning them, or having much to do with them at all until they decided to try and soothe their miserable souls with gaining not only acceptance but indoctrination. It is a de-evolution of mankind in one respect and an abomination of sound moral principals in another. You want "tolerance"; quit screaming and whining and crawl off and play with yourself or whoever you can get to play with you, but keep it out of decent God-loving folks faces and everyone will get along.

This is yet another situation of the 'tail wagging the dog'...Things were just fine in our great country until all this 'minority' stuff took over....and I mean ALL minorities whlich specialize in whining! Get on with life, I say, and stop trying to change everyone else! I couldn't care less if someone wants to hug a tree or make love to a tailpipe...just buzz off and let the rest of us enjoy our lives as WE like! Thank you!

      • rodermck

        you don't beleive in liberty thats a oxemoron you can belevie what you want but when it effects others and try to change things for your own beliefs then it becomes anarchy

        • Guest

          NO. Anarchy is defiance of the government, not it's citizens. And the word is spelled, "oxymoron". Those who oppose illicit behavior have every right to exercise their beliefs. Neither you, nor the government, have any right to prevent them from speaking. YOU are trying to change things, to fit your perverted beliefs. Gays can live their lives any way they want. Those of us who disagree have every right to speak up. Being openly Gay is a choice, not a mandate.

    • Mainman12

      You are right. I would like to add one statement that all Christians may want to use when we are challenged, and that is. "It is NEVER correct or proper to tolerate evil. And homosexual acts, not the persons themselves, are always intrinsically evil."

      • rodermck

        you say christians aren't evil look at all the wars from christianty i know christians and they don't follow your brand of mindless christianty

    • rodermck

      homophobia is a mental disorder that stems from the bigotary and intolarence of the churches that practice them it about the mindless robots that follow then the tragedy is what it does to a percentage off gays where science says it is not chosen and born that way but these bigots only choose science when it benefits them boycots are a product of there intolerment minds they wouldnt care if every person lots there jobs because of this bigotry using this abusive power and the robots that join in if they worked for JCP and lots there jobs could not get another i dont think they would do that but if it did would because god is getting his refenge for there intolorance boycots are economic damage to socites there is only losers there like childern having a tantrum when they can't get there way

      • Guest

        How many years of school did it take for you to write so poorly? Please take your own advice, parrot... there is NO science of any merit that names either intolerance or bigotry as a disease, nor any reputable science which supports homosexuality as genetic or normal. The APA (American Psychological Association) just removed the condition from its list of mental disorders. So far, no gene or component of a gene has demonstrated as a promising determinant of such behavior. Check for yourself.

      • Ort

        Avoid Home Depot too! Until these companies realize it's BAD FOR BUSINESS to promote a choosen lifestyle which our Lord considers an abomination. Love the sinner...NOT the sin!

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Bruce-Sims/1221048825 Bruce Sims

          The H/D thing...love it BUT did you KNOW that according to John 3:36 KJV The sin and the sins and the sinner are ALL under God's WRATH! When you eat meat etc, it becomes a part of you, and IF you sin as a lost man, that sin also becomes a part of you, there is NO separation of the sin from the sinner! An unborn again sinner is a THIEF, MURDERE or whatever sin he commits! God hates SIN and those who commit them, they MUST be BORN Again and separated from thier sins. A B'Again sinner doesnt sin, but his flesh does sin,, that sin is NOT held to his charge spititually, but in the flesh! The flesh reaps where it sows etc. Asinner who is saved is not able to go to hell becuase of sin,

        • Mainman12

          Your theology is a bit wrong. When one has repented and been baptized we are born again of water and of blood. When we do sinful acts IT IS STILL US THAT DO THE SIN. It is the PERSON who sins and our person is both flesh and spirit and the two are inseparable until death. When we who are Christians, born again, and we sin gravely as with homosexual acts we choose to do this and we choose to separate ourselves from God. Nowhere in the Bible KJV or otherwise is there any teaching that we cannot lose our salvation. That teaching does NOT exist anywhere in scripture. In fact, even the Apostle Paul speaks of the possibility of his losing his salvation as he does speak of failing in his "losing his race". Only in his last days, very close to death does he speak of having "won the race." But never forget, sincere repentance and confession of ones sin will always bring us and anyone back into God's Grace.

          These companies should stop getting involved in social and political issues. They should just tell the gays, "We don't take stances on any issues." Then let the gays boycott if they want to. There are not nearly as many gays as they'd like us to believe, but they are vocal and pushy. They have too much power and they bully companies.

        • zulu

          You are so right. Money has no conscience. The companies should do business with whoever has the money to make the purchases, whether they be black, white, tangerine, gay or straight. Sell a good product, give good service, but stay out of the mainstream controversies. It is o.k. for employees to have their own personal opinions of things, however, those opinions should never be expressed to the customers. Nor should you use company money to further a social or political cause. Just do a day's work for a day's pay and go home.

        • rodermck

          If it is a "lifestyle" it IS a choice, because lifestyle is a behavior, not an orientation. One can be heterosexual or homosexual, but the behavior of one so oriented is the issue. It is the same argument for pedophiles or rapists. Only the action or practice of one so "oriented" is a crime. And,yes, societies around the world have always condemned such BEHAVIORS!!!

      JCP has joined the Club. Are you aware that Levi Strauss lost 2/3 of its market share when they went anti-gun? Notice what happened to K-Mart when they picked Rosie O'Muffdiver for a spokesperson? Someone needs to create a petition or statement to be sent to the Boards of these high profile companies warning them that actions running counter to American values and culture will lead to their ultimate demise. I'd say a million signatures would get their attention.

    Gay pride and their "parade" is solely based on sex. If you are "proud" of it, you are telling everyone your worth as a person is defined by lust and nothing more. Children should not be taught to aspire to sick intentions such as these. I will add that if they taught heterosexual sex in this same manner, I would disagree with it too. We were meant to be better then animal sexual urges.

Hope it continues to tank.

  • librtyship

    J.C. Penny stores have really gone to pot over the past year or so, most of the merchandise they have is not anything we would buy. If they persist in promoting the Gay agenda many people are going to avoid them altogether. We use to like J.C. Penny but now do not even consider it worth the time it takes to walk thru their store in the nearby mall!
    I for one am getting really sick and tired of the Gay Agenda which we see altogether too much of here in California which is rapidly becoming a state to avoid if you possibly can!

  • Walt

    This is what happens when Corporations think that they are so big that they can speak for us. We boycott their stores - I cut up my Penney's card and just quit going there. Corporations need to learn to stick to business and keep their opinions to themselves on Political matters. Look at all the entertainers whose careers nosedived just because they expressed their opinion when it wasn't wanted. Few years back Linda Rhonstadt was asked to entertain at a Political Event in Las Vegas. She opened her mouth and told them what she thought - they were pissed. She was asked to leave Vegas and I haven't anything about her since. There are many others.

  • flaphil

    Why do company's need to endorse anything other then the products they sell? The fag pressure groups were going to do what to Penny's if they didn't cooperate? Maybe they were threatening to hang around the dressing rooms and try to queer people when they went in. Just like they do in Interstate Highway rest areas. What a sick bunch of perverts they are. They're worse than an infestation of rats.

  • hirize

    The quest to force people to accept and believe homosexuality is "normal" can never and will never work no matter who or what entities endorse and/promote it. It's a perverse life style, nothing can change that fact and therefore can never be "normal." In other words, try as you may, you simply cannot make chicken salad out of chicken s_ _t.

  • Ladybug91

    When the news of JC Penney signing on lesbian Ellen Degeneres to be their spokes person, I was angry. Since I was a young girl Penney's was the place where my mom took me for school clothes and everything in between. I even bought my wedding dress from them along too with my daughter-in-laws. I even wrote to the company to tell them how displeased I was with their choice and I would no longer be a customer. I've cut up my credit card and haven't stepped foot in one of their stores.
    If Penney's is going under, their CEO is to blame. This was once a family oriented company but to turn its back on its founder who believed in God and His word, then they deserve what is happening. When a company ignores its customers, then they'll soon go out of business. SO long Penney's.

    The management of JCP has made their Choice and now Americans are making theirs in response. Like Darden, JCP will pay the price for their foolishness. Beware, the might of the spending public, once they have left your product or service their return is NOT easily won back.
    BTW, the seventeen members of our family who used to shop at JCP have stopped shopping there and have NO intention of returning, EVER !

  • Tell it Like it is Granny

    Another one is Home Depot. They sponsored a Gay Pride parade in Atlanta with banners saying Gay Pride, Men Having Sex With Men. Gay men prancing down the street in fluorescent bikinis? It showed little children sitting on the curb holding cups with Home Depot logos holding gay pride flags. The stockholders went to their meeting and asked that Home Depot stop endorsing Gay Pride. The CEO or whomever is the head of Home Depot absolutely refused. People like the businesses where they shop to remain neutral. GM is pushing one of their cars, I believe the Volt, to gays. If you are stockholders and purchasers at these businesses let them know. Tell the managers at Home Depot stores that you will no longer shop there. Not at Sears either with their pornography on the web site either. Or Target with their Gay Pride tee shirts.
    I shop at Lowe's instead of Home Depot. Let's put them out of business.

    So how is this for a list to start:
    J.C. Penney
    Home Depot
    Target
    GM
    Sears

Maybe there are enough homos to shop there to keep the doors open. However, I doubt it.

    Gays have nothing to do with it. They were in every society since man walked upright. Lewis and Clark noted in their log that American Indian tribes had gays dress as women so no one can blame gays on the Americans. They are mentioned in the bible also in a negative way. I don´t think anyone chooses to be gay. They just end up that way for some reason. I had several gay friends when I was in the Army during Don´t ask, Don´t tell. Now I guess machinegunners can hold hands with their platoon sergeants while they walk back to the barracks. I wish Americans would be more tolerant of each other. I don´t shop at any store Sears owns because they put me on the bad credit list for not renewing my creditcard with them. It cost me 30 K when I refinanced my house. Come to think of it, it might have been a gay employee who did that to me for a lousy $6 renewal fee.

      You are homo by "choice" not by design...God doesn't make JUNK!!!!

    • Ort

      Pete: firstly, humans have always walked upright! God made male and female, no different then from today. We are NOT descended from ooze, amoebas or monkeys. Only the ignorant and the clueless would believe such a ridiculous load.

      Secondly, it's a choice. Male and female parts fit and compliment one another, and also are most compatible with reproduction. A male part in another males rectum is nothing but perversion, sickness of spirit, and willful and sinful rebellion towards ones Creator.

      Thirdly, no male soldiers should be holding hands in barracks, or combat zones or anywhere else!! If male on female soldier fraternizing is forbidden, so is the perverse, unnatural homo kind.

    Don't shop at Best Buy. They have embraced CAIR and think it is fine to celebrate Ramadan which they recognize in their ads. They no longer recognize Christmas though. I'm done w/them and tell everyone I know.

  • catnip24

    for over 35 years i bought almost all of my clothes at pennys. when they announced degenerate was going to be their spokesthing i sent them an email telling them i would no longer buy anything from them or even walk in their store. i did not cancel my pennys charge card because that can possibly hurt ones credit rating. one thing i did do and everyone can do this. i received emails from pennys and i checked them as spam. if i receive another i spam it out too. most companies don't like being spammed. so good-by pennys.

  • kdave

    When Penney's came up with the idea to not have sales and publish a monthly slick ad,I knew they were in trouble and then when the gay thing came out, I wondered if the management thought all of this made business sense.

    Our family paid off our J C Penny credit card, shredded them, wrote them a letter stating their new advertising practices of promoting same sex partnerships as parents is why we will not walk within the doors of the store to purchase any item as long as this direction continues. Unfortunately my hairdresser is in the beauty salon but all I do is pay for the haircut, I don't purchase any supplies or goods, only for her service. I am going to share this article with her on my next visit explaining to her I cannot condone the companies policies. It was a ghost town in the store as usual as i walked thru with a friend who doesn't seem to have any issues with their store policies although she seemed to be under the impression Francis was fired but our family has had experience with being forced to resign so might as well have been fired!

    J.C. Penny is a hallowed name--in history--my grand parents (Wyoming-ites) Knew JC and he was an honorable person. However, he did not support immoral people and he would not have allowed sodomites and others to be his spokepersons.

    I'm boycotting all the listed stores (in other notes below) like many of you are -- but PLEASE take the time to send e-mails to all these corporations to let them know you are not shopping in their stores, and the reason why.

    God says The Atheist is a Fool.

    The Wisdom in God's Word states that it is Folly for a person
    who Answers a Matter Before he has heard all Facts of the Matter. (Proverbs
    18:13) In short, God says he is a Fool. Any wise Lawyer would Not risk his
    reputation in court (as a Fool) by Not investigating All of the Facts in a
    Legal Matter. He would want to be prepared for uncertain rulings that would
    depend on the court's acceptance or rejection of evidence presented. The Bible
    teaches that the man who cannot Reason is a Fool; the man who
    refuses to Reason is a Bigot; the man who is Afraid to Reason is a Slave.
    The Fool wishes he could Reason, but cannot, he has No Moral Compass;
    the Bigot is able to Reason, but Refuses to Accept Correction, he
    is Prideful, (don't confuse me with facts, my mind is made up); the Slave is
    able to Reason, but he is Fearful of what people will say about him,
    (don't make waves, let's go along to get along, Strive for Majority's
    acceptance). But the Willing Man has every good opportunity available by his Ability
    and Willingness to Reason. The God of the Bible is a God of Reason.
    God's Word says, "Come now, let us Reason together, says the Lord,
    though your sins be as Scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be
    Red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you are (key words) Willing and
    Obedient, you shall eat the good of the land. But if you refuse and rebel, you
    shall be devoured with the sword; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken
    it." (Isaiah 1:18-20) God speaks to the Fools when He says “My people are
    destroyed for lack of knowledge." (Hosea 4:6) "The Fool has said in
    his heart, "There is No God." (Psalms 14:1; 53:1) "For the
    preaching of the Cross is to them that perish Foolishness; But we preach
    Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling block, and unto the Greeks
    Foolishness." (1Corinthians 1:18, 23) The Psychiatry profession claims
    that man is a two-part being; he has an Intellect and a Body, and that
    the goodness of man lays within his inner most being. God's Word says this is
    Not correct; there is No goodness in man in his fallen state. (Romans 3:10, 23);
    “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, Not one. For ALL have
    sinned and come short of the Glory of God.” ( In Genesis.1:26,27), God says, "Let
    us make man in OUR image, in OUR likeness," That is a Three-Part being
    in the likeness of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. The
    spirit of man is the most important part of his triune creation. The spirit
    of man was created in the express image of God and is indestructible and
    will live forever in eternity. God created Adam and Eve in His Glory and
    they were spiritually joined to God and they were exceedingly blessed with His
    Grace in all things. But when Adam and Eve rebelled against God's instructions,
    their spiritual connection was severed and their fellowship with God was
    destroyed. Because of Adam's fall, man received as a consequence for his
    disobedience, a sin nature. This sin nature, referred to as "Original
    Sin," is an inborn propensity to commit evil. God is an All-Consuming Fire and He knows that sinful
    man cannot stand in His presence. In the course of 4,000 years, God
    sent His Son Jesus, to save fallen man by becoming a propitiation and sacrifice
    for man's sin, and thereby reconciling man back to God. God is loving, merciful,
    forgiving, and just. The greatest Promise in the Bible is John 3:16,17;
    "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever
    believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For
    God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world
    through Him might be saved." The greatest tragedy is John 3:18; "But
    he that believeth Not is condemned already, (the Atheist, Agnostic) because
    he has not believed in the name of the Only Begotten Son of God." God in
    His love, mercy, forgiveness, and grace, satisfied his Justice and hatred for
    man's sin by providing a way for man to be reconciled to God, by placing the
    entire sins of the world, past, present, and future, upon Jesus, the Lamb of
    God Who is without sin and Who takes away the sin of the world. God takes No
    pleasure in the death of the wicked. Ezekiel 33:11 says, “As I live says the Lord
    God, I have No pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn
    from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye
    die, O house of Israel?” The problem with man’s sin nature is quite simple. Man
    cannot save himself from his destructive sin nature, therefore God provided a
    Savior to deliver him from his evil ways. The Bible way to heaven is achieved by
    a simple Confession and an act of faith found in Romans 10: 9-13; that says,
    ”If you Confess with your Mouth the Lord Jesus and Believe in your Heart
    that God raised Him from the dead, you Will be Saved. For with the Heart
    one believes unto righteousness, and with the Mouth confession is made unto Salvation.
    For the scripture says “Whoever Believes on Him will Not be put to shame.” For
    there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is
    rich to all who call upon Him. For whoever calls upon the Lord
    (Jesus) Shall be Saved.” When a believer Confesses this prayer, he is
    making a proclamation of Identification. He is vicariously in agreement and personally
    Identifies with the death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus who
    took his sins to the cross and was raised from the dead in hell for the
    forgiveness of all his sins, enabling him to spend eternity with the Father in
    Heaven. The Atheist and Agnostic says God does not exist, yet they have Not
    searched for Him. The man who does Not search for God will generally never find
    Him, but the man who steadfastly searches for God will always find Him. God
    invites men to search for Him, and He promises to reveal Himself to all who
    seek to know Him. Jeremiah 33:3 says, “Call unto me, and I will
    answer you and show you great and mighty things which you do not know.”
    Jeremiah 29: 11-14 says, ”For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says
    the Lord, thoughts of peace and Not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then
    you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you
    will Seek Me and Find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. I
    will be found by you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back from your
    captivity;” The Atheist and Agnostic
    is without excuse. God has given sinful man a plan of redemption and
    eternal salvation.

    God has given us His son Jesus; He has given us His Holy Word;
    He has given us His Holy Spirit. All man has to do is Choose the path he
    wants to take for his eternal destiny. God does not send sinful man to hell
    and damnation. God has given man a free will to choose his eternal destiny. Sinful
    man sends himself to hell and damnation by default, because he has Not Believed
    on the Name of Jesus, the Only Begotten Son of God. Man has to make this choice while he is yet
    alive, for he cannot choose after he experiences the First physical death.

    The Great White Throne Judgment. Revelation 20:13-15 says, “Then I saw a great
    white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven
    fled away. And there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and
    great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was
    opened, which is the Book
    of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by
    the things which were written in the books. The sea gave up the dead who were
    in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they
    were judged, each one according to his works. Then Death and Hades were cast
    into the Lake of Fire. This is
    the Second Death. And anyone
    Not found written in the Book of Life
    was cast into the Lake of Fire.
    The Second Death is Not
    cessation of physical life, but it is the Eternal
    Separation of Life from Jesus, the eternal source of life. God’s
    Word is His Will, and God’s Will is His Word. The consciousness that
    we have in this mortal life will live for eternity; to be vividly aware
    of eternal glory with God or vividly aware of eternal hell and damnation. Only
    a FOOL Atheist would choose eternal hell over the simple choice of eternal Glory
    with God. John 14:6 says, Jesus said to him, “ I am The (only) Way, The (only)
    Truth, and The (only) Life. No one comes to the Father Except through
    Me.” The Word of God is Divine Truth; inspired by His Holy Spirit; it is
    self-evident truth, and it is beyond debate. The Bible was written and
    canonized over a period of approximately 1700 years by 40 different authors,
    who were inspired by the Holy Spirit of God. The Bible is all about Jesus and He
    is the main character in every book and all of the books are in harmony
    with Jesus as the central theme of man’s salvation. There is not one book that
    contradicts any of the other books. In
    the King James Bible there are 66 books, 1189 chapters, 31,102 verses, 773,746
    words, and 3,566,480 letters. Now imagine taking all these books, chapters,
    verses, words, and letters, and wrapping them all over every square inch of
    Jesus’ body and then covering Him with flesh. The apostle John constantly
    refers to Jesus as the Word of God
    in his Gospel and in his book of Revelation. (John 1:1,14; Revelation 19:13,16)
    “And He [Jesus] was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and His Name is called the Word of God.
    And He [Jesus] has on His vesture and on His thigh a name written, King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Jesus is the Word of God Who became flesh and dwelt among
    us, (John 1:14) and believers are the flesh who become the Word as we study and
    meditate on the Holy Scriptures. “And you shall know the Truth and the
    Truth shall make you Free.” (John 8:32)

    Dr.
    Lewis S. Chafer, Dallas Theological Seminary founder, sums up the Bible in 5
    topical words in his Christian Theology. Christ is the Central Theme
    of Scripture, and as bearing on His Person, the
    Old Testament is 1.) classified as the Preparation for the Coming Christ; 2.) the Four
    Gospels as the Manifestation of
    Christ; 3.) the Book of Acts as the Propagation of Christ's Spirit
    (His Church); 4.) the Epistles as the Explanation
    of the Preparation, Manifestation,
    and Propagation of Christ; and
    5.) the Book of Revelation as the Consummation
    of Christ and His Church. The Glorious Consummation
    of the Creator God with His Redeemed
    Creation; the Church, the
    Bride of Christ shall behold
    Him and Become One With Him
    and Eternally Joined With the Father.

    Logic dictates if the premise is true, the conclusion is true
    also. The Word of God has a truthful premise and ends with a true conclusion. Atheist,
    your name will be found in the Book of
    Life if you confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that
    Jesus is your Lord and Savior of your life. May God grant you the wisdom
    to choose between Heaven and hell; Non-Smoking or Smoking. Amen!
    PTL!

  • Kent Stamm

    I, as a born again Christian, know where you are coming from. However I currently work for JCPenney Co. There are many good people, Christian and non-Christian who work for these retail giants and you are hurting us with your boycotts. Now we are in danger of losing our jobs and in this current environment, we can't just pick up and go to another job. They are too hard to come by in some areas. I live in a small college town and there aren't that many jobs to be had.
    I really think that there are other ways to make your voices heard without putting us out of work. I have worked for JCP for nearly 30 years and I can't afford to loose my pension and my savings because you don't agree with upper management in this or any other company.
    And we don't have a Staples here so I have to rely on Office Depot. But if they go out of business, then I won't have anywhere to shop for office supplies.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PPMRLPRRJU4VOQ45ZHDFRJR2HA Alan

    I served in the U.S.Navy from 1972-1975, and I do not hate Gays. However, I don't believe that they need to flaunt their sexual lifestyle openly; as I see no need to flaunt my straight sexual lifestyle openly. When I am out with my Wife; I will hold her hand while walking ... but I will not be shoving my tongue down her throat, or grabbing her boobs or crotch while in public view. I travel a lot on business and see many gay couples being a bit too "eager" while around other people. Both Gay & Straight couples should show some common respect and decency while out in public; especially if young children & the elderly are nearby.

    My "Personal" belief is that Homosexuality (male & female) is unnatural and abnormal. Why? Well, if it were natural and normal; then, none of us would be posting commentary in this forum right now; nor would any debates be going on currently or throughout human history concerning this subject; as it would be moot! Personally, I will never ACCEPT the Gay lifestyle as normal or natural; nor will I allow the un-natural practice to be forced upon me via the open Gay sexual gyrations and intimacy in public view ... If you want to pervert human sexual activity; then keep thoses activites behind closed doors!

    Notwithstanding, I look at this issue via another point of consideration.

    Let's go back through human history to about 50,000 BC for example ... just bear with me on this. Using the law of averaging, and if Homosexual behavior was normal and natural; then there could be only three types of couples: Male/Male, Female/Female, & Male/Female.

    This would mean that only 1/3 of the humans during the last 52,000 years would be producing children. Being that infant mortality rates were extremely high until the advent of modern medicine (about the last 80+ years); that meant the females in the Male/Female couple had to give birth to many children just to insure that there were enough to survive to adulthood.

    Now with that in mind; you must consider the Birth to Death ratio of the human race during that past 52,000 years ... IF ... only 1/3 of human couples produced children. It would seem to me that all of the Deaths of humans caused by: war, disease, famine, accidents, crime (murder/killing), natural predators, and natural catastrophes (volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, fire, floods, typhoons, tornadoes, etc.), would be far higher than those being born.

    Also, artifical insemination was not viable until the 1950's; therefore, for the past 51,140 years, the Male/Male and Female/Female couples would not have been able to produce and nurse children unless the wide-spread use of "Surrogates" was in place. Now, if such a structure and practice was in place for the past 51,140 years; then the "family" structure, as we know it, would not exisit. How many children born during all those 1000's of years would have known the identities of their Mothers or Fathers. Today, due to medical reasons (DNA, genealogy, blood type, etc.); it is very important to be able to trace bloodlines.

    So, basically, I believe that the world's population would have been a lot lower than it is today; as there would have been much fewer humans producing children during our history. This has absolutely NOTHING to do with religions of any kind.

    This is not supported by any study or evidence (as far as I'm aware); it is just my view point based upon supposition.

    I used to shop Penney's for years and have stopped. When the new president came in, he had no retail experience. It's a lot different selling clothes,etc. than what Apple (where he came from). He came out with that stupid, empty, glossy once a month book with prices good for that month, eliminated all the coupon,etc. that get people to shop in their stores. Revamped the web site and ruined the company. Who does the most shopping? Women! That's who Penneys needs and should hire. The gay thing? I agree with Screeminmeeme. Stop shoving your lifestyle down our throats!

    I believe that the homosexual/LGBT AGENDA is the worst disease on the morals and family values of the USA and the world. My family and I have been JCP customers for many years and regret that they support the homosexual (not PC gay) AGENDA. We have not shopped at JCP since we found out about there support for the homosexual AGENDA. We have also been avoiding Home Depot, Disney, Starbucks, and General Mills to name a few.
    Homosexuals WERE NOT BORN THAT WAY, they CHOOSE their UNNATURAL lifestyle, so homosexuality does not qualify as civil rights discrimination issue. Homosexuals have equal rights but they want special rights,

    J. C. Penny loves homo-perverts ... than I don't love J. C. Penny and will take my business elsewhere.

    You better believe, I'll never again buy anything from Penneys! And I hope they do go out of business!

    Fa66pts are less than 3% of the population. How did such PC power become part of the power of the fa66ot movement?

    I will not shop at JCPenney or any other stores that promote gay agenda and I always shop at JCPenney before the gay thing , people better realize that being gay is a sickness and stop trying to justify it.

    A friend who was a hair dresser worked for Penny's told me they cut out all commission expecting a person to work for a little over minimum wage. They are going down the tubes. Guess they shouldn't have picked Ellen Degenerate for a spokesperson.

    They are reaping what they have sown.What is so special about that female sodomite Allen DeGenerate to begin with?

    We don't go to JC Penny anymore nor do we go to Target since Target began selling "happy" items. I too am tired of our government (Obama) making homosexuality "acceptable and normal." Since Obama has come into office the "happy people" have come out from beneath the baseboards.

    I do not understand why a large company that needs milions and milions of shoppers would cater to so few that live so wrong. JC PENNEY WILL SOON BE NO MORE. WHAT A SHAME. THE MAN JAMES CASH PENNEY DESERVED BETTER

    I can not speak for everyone, but every friday 20 of us gals would head to the mall for lunch, gab session and an all afternoon shopping spree. Many of us spent the whole afternoon in Pennys..... that is the history.... we continue our friday get togehers, but we never, ever enter Pennys.... our store of choice is Macy's.... and the salespeople are even friendlier. We find equal products, acquired credit cards for discounts AND, they even tell you the special of the week. Penny's you can have your fags and freaks.... we have a wonderful lunch, afternoon and shopping spree!!! We refuse to sponser or shop at stores that cater to the whims of 3 percent of the population and do not acknowledge the strengh of families and normal citizens. GOOD BYE PENNY'S ......... HELLO MACY'S!!!!

    I remember J.C.Penney's in the early 1940's when they had a track system for sending the customers purchase money in small containers up to their office for change. Children would watch in fascination as this myriad of a futuristic freeway system found its' way up to their offices. They were always the stable store that a family could count on, along with Sears and Roebuck. Now that the Roebuck has been dropped from the Sears name, many other changes have also been made but these stores tried to adapt to our ever changing society, with always the emphasis on customer service. I don't ever remember that any of them became political because they were retailers and merchandising was their business. They had products to sell and a business to conduct. I hope that they will return to their prior, successful operations.

    And it should flounder. Also;Hooray for the BOY SCOUTS! And their principled, unafraid leaders. There was a half-hour music program with the great musician,leader,singer Johnny Mann and his singers called..."Stand Up And Cheer', with, get this, a 30 foot American flag as a backdrop. But that was 30 or so years ago, it could never be done today. To the BSA, and others, and all voting to defeat Obama - Stand up and cheer!.

    Where do you do your banking? Do you realize that all the major banks, B of A, JPMChase, Wells Fargo, etc., openly encourage gay partnerships by having gay organizations operating within the bank, allowing partners of gays the same insurance benefits and and such just as if they were married. I'm sick of having to be tolerant when it is against my Christian beliefs. Lets boycott the big banks (who also have sent so many thousands of jobs to India), and find those local or credit unions that do not support the gay lifstyle. Even a lot of churches have now supported the gay lifestyle just so their membership rolls don't suffer.
    The US is going to crumble and fall due to decay from within.

  • gmalinda1231

    Penny's has been off of our radar since 9-11 when they refused to display an American Flag. Seems their political correctness is tolling their death knell.

    Will not hurt anyone to see them go.

  • Alfredo

    I think we should all stop buying at J.C. Penney and leave the place for the gays to buy. Since they are such a small minority they will go bankrupt in a short time.

  • rodermck

    after posting on every intolernt post i am wondering what is going on!!.. obvious they are all speaking to the same homophibia what a waste they don't want do bussiness with most companies that shows you are out of touch with the world this dozent happen in europe thats because the worst came here and brought there intolerance with them saved them now this country is suffering from it, how can it get worse than that for massive intolerance by this missguided group that does nothing but brings us down and perputes it by teching that to there children and they teach it to there's that happend to the blacks and it's taken that long to change but slowly changes as it is best for are society but not yours

  • drumitup

    What do we really know about homosexuality? What if it is not a choice? I just asking because I don't know. It's uncomfortable, but I know I would love my child, brother or sister if they were gay. It's small stuff compared to some.

  • lizaz

    We gave up Penneys years ago, and Target as well...same reason. When we lived in Seattle, one year Target decided the Salvation Army couldn't station one of their bell-ringers in front of their store any more. Now they are on the queer movement!! Along with Penneys I guess they have plenty of customers and don't need our family!! We won't give in to the propaganda of the homosexuals' disgusting habits. Good luck to them!!!

    I no longer shop at JCP because they over-charge for the products they sell. I noticed that lately, they are offering 'freebies' to the younger families--like free haircuts for the K-3 group returning to school (or the first time as in the K group). I think these young moms are being asked to "spread the word" because these freebies are not in the local ads; you see the messages on facebook and some are either calling or texting those messages. I disagree with their new policy and firmly believe they should be promoting true family values and traditions--that goes ditto for Hallmark.

    I hope Penneys go bankrupt - I haven't been to the stotre in months mainly because of their advertising showing gay couples - gay men - and the bigger picture of hiring this guy from Target who completely revamped the stores and made them dowdy discount places. It's unbelieveable what has happened to Penneys! - instead of nice department it's all one big warehouse now with racks and racks in dirty aisles - one one price fits all on hangers - it has completely turned around from a really nice store with good bargains and coupons to a warehouse type operation that leaves me cold - Good bye Penneys - won't see me back there EVER.

    My goodness. What a sad day. Earlier in this post people were talking about shipping gays off to an island and others talked of killing them. And then they pretended to be Christian. The God I believe in would not condone such action. No gays in the church? Really? Gay people are in our churches. They sit next to you in your pew. They come to church to hear God's love spoken and to re-fuel their selves to be able to make it through another week, just like everyone else does. They are in the office with you working to make a living. They are in your life and so are their families. They probably just know you would not be a supportive soul so they don't confide in you. If you don't want to shop at a certain store, then don't. But don't spew hatred in the name of God. I'll pray for all of you. By the way, the God I believe in is happy to have them in church. I believe God is crying over how you are treating and speaking of his children.

    JCP's recent advertising follies do not make any sense. No wonder their sales have fallen. First, they hired Ellen as their spokesperson. They chose her because she once worked in a JCP store in Louisiana (that is their contention). That choice alienated many customers because of her lifestyle and her unabashed support of the idiot in the White House. Next, JCP withdrew its sponsorship of the Rush Limbaugh program because he (correctly) referred to the college student testifying before congress, of all places, that you and I should pay for her birth control, as a "slut." He later apologized, but he should not have because she was merely flaunting her promiscuity and asking taxpayers to pick up the bill. JCP evidently doesn't realize how many listeners Rush has.. thus they lost several million customers with that little fiasco. Their latest advertising gaffe was the "two mommies and two daddies" in the June booklet JCP mailed to all customers. Well, guess how many people have cut up their JCP credit cards after receiving that masterpiece? Several ladies in my Sunday School class said they will never shop JCP again; thus JCP lost many heretofore loyal customers. This scenario was undoubtedly repeated countrywide. I don't believe placating less than 3% of the population (homos) at the cost of alienating the other 97% is very good business. Is it a wonder these JCP executives have been terminated? JCP has been in business since the early 1900s and has been the epitome of the family store. People can no longer depend on Mr. Penney's family oriented business practices because his store has been hijacked by politically correct, can't-we-all-just-get-along philosophies.

    I went to the University and and focused on my studies. Because I was single minded and concentrating on my BSEE, some "certain follks" took that lack of interest in females [at least what they could observe - (in fact I was seeing young ladies from my part time job)] and they approached me candidly, repeatedly, until I had to get threatening to make them "disappear" and leave me the hell alone! The line they use that they don't bother others or try to force their lifestyle on the heterosexual community is a flat out lie. It's their greatest goal in life to "flip" an unsuspecting, "innocent" mark. Their sexual lifestyle is repulsive and perverse as a minimum. Their sexual encounters with unknown strangers flippantly and any time, is characteristic of animals; that is the only descriptive which immediately comes to mind.

  • Joan

    I don't have a problem with Ellen being a spokesperson for JC Penney, but because she likes the quality and/or style and pricing of the items they sell. But I do object to Ellen being selected as a spokesperson solely because she is gay. That is just shoving the gay agenda down the throats of people who disagree with that type of lifestyle. Why would any of us want to buy from that store anymore?

  • Name

    Doesn't matter if your against homosexuality or for it, companies don't get a pro whichever president is running advertisement or anti execution advertisements so why a pro homosexual advertisement, difference between chik-fil-a and jcp is that jcp is endorsing homosexuality, as a business and chik fil, they asked for his personal opinion and he gave it, not as the company as a whole but as a person legally entitled to his own opinion, so that's Factual and call me what you will but I haven't stated if I'm of similar opinion on homosexuality as Rodermck or everyone else, so...

    My family have cancelled our Pennies card and they shall receive no support from my family. I hope pandering to a three percent minority of the country was really worth there immanent bankruptcy...

  • gayla

    I don't care where you shop...I don't care about your sexual orientation, especially if it is perverted! Homosexuals have screamed for years that they have a right to the privacy of their own bedrooms...Well, most of America is quite satisfied with homosexuals having the right to that privacy, in fact we prefer it. However, the agenda of the godless left is not satisfied with that right...they want this abomination in our faces, in our schools, in our churches, in the agendas of where we shop and eat. Quite frankly, they want to ram it down our throats. They want us to deny our Christian values that denounce homosexuality and embrace their lifestyle in the name of political correctness. We cannot, and will not redefine what is, and has been for centuries on end. Red has been and always will be Red, White has been and always will be White, Marriage has been and always will be between ONE MAN AND ONE WOMAN. Homosexuality has been and always will be an abomination in the sight of God. We may have to live among this sinful nations choices for awhile, just as Lot endured this in Sodom. However, there is a just God that sees the indignity of what his people are suffering, and just as sure as he delivered just Lot, so shall he deliver his righteous people from this abominable earth. All sinners should take notice that the rich man in hell that had all his physical attributes such as sight, reasoning, feeling, for he was tormented in those flames. He just wanted Lazarus to dip is finger in water and touch it to his tongue. However, that was not possible because of the great gulf that was fixed. Lazarus could not go to the rich man, nor could the rich man come to Lazarus, nor could the rich man go back and warn his family not to come to that place of torment. Had Lazarus had a chance to go back and undo his sinful lifestyle, he would have done so without hesitation. Believers we can escape this place through the knowledge and obedience of our Lord Jesus, or we can choose to ignore sin's penalty. "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ out Lord" Romans 6:23
