    Default One Million Moms to JC Penney: fire Ellen, she's gay

    LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - One Million Moms -- a project of the American Family Association -- is very angry at JC Penney.

    No, not because it sells sweater vests (heck, Rick Santorum is a fan of those), but because the Texas-based department store has hired Ellen DeGeneres as a spokeswoman.

    And DeGeneres is -- cue the scary music -- gay, and open about it.

    "Funny that JC Penney thinks hiring an open homosexual spokesperson will help their business when most of their customers are traditional families," the million (or so) moms write on their website. "DeGeneres is not a true representation of the type of families that shop at their store. The majority of JC Penney shoppers will be offended and choose to no longer shop there."

    One Million Moms is asking people to call JC Penney to complain.

    With this campaign, One Million Moms, which claims to be "the most powerful tool you have to stand against the immorality, violence, vulgarity and profanity the entertainment media is throwing at your children," is going after one of the country's most-beloved television hosts.

    The moms want JC Penney "to replace Ellen DeGeneres as their new spokesperson immediately and remain neutral in the culture war."

    Fat chance, says the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Discrimination.

    "A vast majority of Americans today support Ellen as well as their LGBT friends and family members," Herndon Graddick, a GLAAD spokesman said in a written statement. "Selecting an out performer who has inspired and entertained millions, is not only a smart business practice, but a reflection of how LGBT Americans today are an integral and valued part of the fabric of our culture."

    DeGeneres' daytime talk show has more viewers than the American Family Association has moms. Between January 16 and January 22, "Ellen" averaged 3.38 million viewers -- or 2.38 million more people than the AFA has moms.

    American Family Association did not return a request for comment.

    Personaly I find it immoral and vulgar to persecute someone for their sexuality and then harp on about how you're really just doing everyone a favour by persicuting them.....Sometimes, I hate people, the rest of the time I just don't understand them!

    she isn't a model either but she making bank by being the Cover Girl spokesperson


    Women like her because she is real, honest, funny and nice

    I don't think that is going to equate to a huge upsurge in sales of women's chinos, vests and neckties


    but if these women want something to bitch about, tell them to boycott Sears for putting those Kartrashian hos in charge of their junior womens department

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    Not me, but I only set foot in that place once. Wasn't for me. This is just another reason I stopped watching the news, if it wasn't for my Yahoo homepage and the Links giving me news I could live in my own world. Oh, FB too...

    Don't you just love religion and "traditional values"?

    It makes me sick when people use these arguments to support their bigot ways.

    I really don't care for the woman, but its got nothing to do with the fact she's gay. I just find her annoying.

    But this, really? Is anybody really so biggoted that they honestly think people would boycott a store because the spokeperson isn't straight and doesn't represent a "traditional" family? You know, the kind of traditions which were strong when gays were persecuted and African Americans sat at the back of the bus.

    Pennys is a great place to shop for clothes. Everything is just right ! !

    I like my shopping experience at Pennys, for clothes, better than my experience shopping at:

    Sears --cramped isles
    Macys --uncomfortable temperature in the store -- too warm
    Khols --crappy music blaring over the speakers
    Dillards --just to big and cavernous

    Yes, but all the code words were used.

    Most interesting to me is you can take this presser from the Million Moms and replace "gay" with "Negro" and you would've seen this exact thing 60 years ago.

    Bigots were on the wrong side of history then and I hope soon enough they will be with these idiotic anti-gay campaigns.

    Well, if you go to AFA.net, you'll see

    Revolving top story 1: the story of a girl who found out she was almost aborted
    Revolving top story 2: the story of forest rangers ordering the image of Jesus removed from WWII memorial statue
    Revolving top story 3: the story on Home Depot's response about AFA pressure to stop their homosexual support
    Revolving top story 4: the story on a call for families to support marriage as God intended it
    Revolving top story 5: the story about a Pastor talking about his newest book
    Revolving top story 6: the story on Macy's firing a Christian for preventing a man dressed as a woman from using the women's dressing room
    Revolving top story 7: the story on AARP using membership dues to advocate same-sex marriage,

    as well as stories titled:

    "Bryan Fischer: Obama’s “tax the rich” scheme does NOT “coincide with Jesus’ teaching”"
    "Probe Ministries: Welcome to the Machine: The Transhumanist God"
    "Dr. Ray Pritchard: The Curse of Moderate Christianity"
    "Take Action: Obama mandates pro-abortion policy on faith-based organizations"
    "Superintendent bullies Christian student, calls him 'ignorant'"

    And that's just the home page
