    It might be interesting to see what Target does with this kind of stupidity.

    I'm glad that someones taking a stand to fight for the rights of the teen glbt community, and encourages gay teens to be proud and strong.
    Good for them.

    Weren't we just boycotting (or threatening to) Target for supporting a candidate in Minn. or somewhere who made anti-gay comments?

    That is not a news site, it is a forum for some fundie group. I like how they fail to mention they keep kids from committing suicide. I guess being dead is better than "turning" gay.

    Their kind will die out eventually.

    The comments from people saying that "this will turn our kids gay!" "oh no! there saying It's OK to be gay!" I pity such hypocrite religious people. I wonder what they'll say once they reach their "heaven" and are asked If they loved their fellow man.

    Fundamentalists..."They are openly recruiting teens and children to become 'gay' on a program that also promotes the transgender and homosexual lifestyle," laments David Caton, executive director of the pro-family group.


    I'm not sure what the problem is then. If the gay radiation from the show itself is already giving your kids mutant genitalia, why should an advertisement for it be that much worse?

    Also: be a parent. If you don't like a show on TV, turn off the TV and go play outside with your kids.

    Why? It is so much more fun to eat a can of Pringles, drink a gallon of soda, and eat a pack of cookies.

    It would be interesting to know if you plan to support Target now. You have been opposed to many of Target's practices in the past.

    The "Christian" fundies seem to sink lower each year. Now they're against suicide-prevention programs? Unbelievable.

    I have not been to Target and still do not plan on going back to Target for at least a while. Target has made no statement regarding this issue. So as far as I'm concerned this issue is still up in the air. Creating this thread does not mean that I support Target.

    Right, because any real Merikan knows that one can only hold one opinion at a time, for life, should never change it, and every person/group/corporation is either with us or against us. Forever.

    Didn't Target apologize for the donations to anti-gay causes? Aren't they now doing something good? It's intolerant and hypocritical to recognize that things (and people and corporations) can change and that one who does bad one day can do good the next?

    Ah, Republican logic.

    Steven Colbert, at the White House Correspondent's Dinner:
    "The greatest thing about this man is he's steady," Colbert said of Bush. "You know where he stands. He believes the same thing Wednesday that he believed on Monday, no matter what happened Tuesday. Events can change; this man's beliefs never will."

    That the way you view things, JP?
