Maybe. And I hope so. TARGET STOCK IN TOILET: Boycott Passes 1 Million As Corporate Losses Pass $2.5 BILLION! | RedState . And I know it is working with some people I know who aren’t even that political, but who have loved shopping at Target for decades. They have had enough.
I normally don’t get too worked up over boycotts. If you would have boycotted every non-Christian thing in the Roman empire you would have died in a week. Amazon.com isn’t exactly a Christian institution but they save me a ton of money and time and I plan to keep shopping there (and they don’t even have public restrooms, so no worries about that).
But boycotts do have some value, and I think this is one of those times.
If you boycott to make non-Christians act like Christians, then that won’t get far. But if you apply the “love your neighbor” test, I think this one is worthwhile. Target has put innocent people at risk solely to appease the LGBTQX bullies. That is worth fighting.
And this isn’t just some corporation following the corporate and cultural trends. When I was at Compaq, the Sr. VP of Human Resources was just as supportive of adding the Christian Employee Network Group that I led as she was adding the LGBTQX group. To her it was just a Human Resource trend and she wasn’t playing favorites. (Things changed when HP bought us, but that’s a different story.)
But Target’s move is a blunt, hateful, in-your-face move, and it follows their silliness about avoiding gender-specific clothes designations. Their “genderless” clothes displays are a self-parody. After all, even Bruce Jenner tries to dress like a traditional woman when he is pretending to be female. I think they are trying to put The Onion out of business.
Do you really want to profit someone who hates you and your worldview so aggressively?
*You’d think that if God literally blinded you while you were sinning that you might at least pause for a moment. Not with the LGBTQX lobby: Genesis 19:11 And they struck with blindness the men who were at the entrance of the house, both small and great, so that they wore themselves out groping for the door.
