Latest Ellen DeGeneres ad causes another stir
One Million Moms registers disapproval over JC Penney Xmas commercial
I am offended by this TV spot. As a 3ft tall,pointy eared,green stocking wearing toy maker I find this commercial to be blatantly anti-elfite. All us elves must stand together (yes..we are already standing!!) to fight such a damaging campaign!!!!....Give me a break....
My wife and I were not planning on shopping at JCP this holiday season but,will now,do so in support of Ellen and the company.
I consider myself christian in that I believe Jesus is true God and true man. Now that what I believes on the record I will go on the record again and say that if anything should be offensive it the correlation between Santie Claus and his working 'elves" (at lease he employs the physically challenged) and the birth of God. However, as a product of Christian AMerican capitalism, I find this protest group offensive in that it attacks the one thing we as american should promote, comsumerism!
As for Ellen, God made her for us to love.
OMG, Christians and conservatives PLEASE stop! This is so wrong. DO YOU HONESTLY THINK THAT PEOPLE WOULD BE GAY IF THEY HAD THE CHOICE? NO! There is something there that we do not understand, period. I am a 44 yr old Christian/conservative/straight married woman and all of this is really doing damage to all of us! This is SO disappointing.
Would Christ have rejected gay people and Ellen? Please tell me WHO Jesus did not include and WHO he rejected in his life. WHOM did he boycott? WHOM did HE walk away from? Jesus did not have an application with ethnicity or sexual orientation or gender questions on it. Not even a quick checklist. YOU JUST HAD TO BELIEVE and follow him. MANY gay people do believe and follow Jesus, only to be judged and excluded by many Christians.
How to you think Ellen feels after hearing all of this? What does JC Penney AND THE PEOPLE THAT WORK THERE AND WILL BE HURT BY YOUR BOYCOTT HAVE TO DO WITH IT? Merry Christmas! If JC Penny’s merchandise sales decline, the folks that work there may not be needed anymore.
Most importantly, who are you to judge? That is the bottom line. It IS wrong to be gay in the bible. But the bible also allows for multiple wives and slavery, and stoning as a punishment for premarital sex (Mary) and FROWNED JUST AS MUCH ON: lying, cheating, DIVORCE, NOT LOVING YOUR NEIGHBOR (DO you even know yours?) Idolatry (What is most important in your life? If it’s not God, then you are probably guilty)
So please, go back and read your bible and decide why this one issue can't be updated like DIVORCE and SLAVERY have been. Also read up on the inclusive nature of Christians and the parts about not judging.
I will admit that having been brought up that being gay was wrong; I am uncomfortable and find it unnatural to see it publicly. That sounds like my problem, not theirs.
Evidence shows that while she (ellen degeneras) may be bringing the pro-homosexual crowd into Pennys, many, many others are staying away...in droves.
Check the financial pages & you will see that back around Feb. 9, 2012, ( close to when she became the spokeswoman for JCP) JCP stock prices were $43.13.
today, JCP is DOWN to $18.32. That would be a LOSS of about 57%.
Now while there are other reasons for the stock price LOSS also, surely the LOSS of the customers objecting to degeneras as the 'face of pennys', is a contributing factor. Even a LARGE factor.
