And yet another foolish business gets involved in the culture wars and supports Planned Parenthood. This time it was Chili’s — though I heard they stopped the promotion (after the damage was already done). I left this note at their site:
Hi — I’ve always enjoyed Chili’s but now every time I see one I will think of how you support the largest child-killers in the country, and perhaps the world: Planned Parenthood. They kill children, sell their body parts, protect rapists & sex traffickers, lie about doing prenatal care, and so much more. You used bad judgment.
I realize you can’t boycott everything or you’d starve, but I do avoid business that are more in-your-face with their radical Leftism, such as Target (Motto: “We hate you Christians because you are intolerant bigots who know the difference between men and women, so please spend lots of money here!”).
Another company, which I won’t mention because I don’t want to give them free advertising, thought it would be smart to brag about their support for Planned Parenthood. They sell cosmetics to women and assumed that the post-
#womensmarch #abortionmarch timing would be great. But it turns out that many loyal customers, including Mrs. Eternity Matters, said, “Buh-bye!” Most of their Facebook comments were negative, and the business got caught having employees pretending to be customers and offering positive support. They tried to backtrack and say that they’d planned to rotate the giving to other organizations in the future, but the original post made no mention of that. And as they doubled-down with one defensive comment after another the opportunity for grace was gone.
The cost of losing customers for life is enormous. My advice to any Board of Directors and senior management is to never give in to the LGBTQX, Planned Parenthood or other Leftist bullies. Remember PP’s scorched earth campaign against Komen – a breast cancer charity! – when they tried to part ways. Do not pick up those snakes. Just tell them you stay out of the culture wars and move on. They may threaten you, but don’t give in. If your competitors give in and you don’t then you may reap the benefits!
