Is the Target boycott working?

targetMaybe.  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?

I highly encourage you to sign up for the boycott.  Even if you still need to shop there for practical reasons, at least try to shop their less.  Target probably won’t relent, because the blind people of Sodom* leading the LGBTQX movement are far more aggressive on these issues than Christians are.  But even if Target doesn’t change it may get other businesses to reconsider diving into the culture wars.

*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.target

  1. I joined the boycott. For me it might be permanent. Over the years Target has put a bullseye on Christian themes. They have removed Merry Christmas from their stores and they disallow Salvation Army Santas. They seem to be making every effort to undo what is good and fashion a store in the likeness of LGBT. I will shop elsewhere.

  2. Great and important post!

    I have always thought that if we are not willing to stand up for our Christian morals, ethics, and values; then we aren’t living as the “wheat” in this life. All that we hold dear will quickly erode and we, as “wheat” will not be distinguishable from the “chaff.”

    I discussed this same subject in my blog post today. There was something that Dr. Keith Ablow stated in his opinion piece at Fox News that exposes the real reason this “bathroom bill” is happening. In a nutshell:

    The real reason why the North Carolina ‘bathroom bill’ debate is center stage.
    The bathroom debate is really a debate about the fundamental way we Americans will define any truth.

    Jhn 8:44

    “You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.

    1. He’d probably protect children. And say things like this: Mark 10:6-9 But from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.’ ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”
