Latest Ellen DeGeneres ad causes another stir
One Million Moms registers disapproval over JC Penney Xmas commercial
Before I saw this article, I didn't even know about OMM. So I went to their website. It's pretty entertaining. They have a running list of things to protest and boycott plus they list all of their "successes". I'm pretty sure there aren't one million moms spending their time perusing this website looking for things to write complaining emails about when they actually have very little time to because, well, they're moms.
They claim to have been responsible for the cancellation of TV shows like Playboy Club and 666 Park Avenue, when in fact, these shows were just stupid. American TV is, for the most part, stupid. It's just trying to find those shows less stupid than others. That's why a good 50% of our TV viewing is on PBS.
Now, if we can just corral and control the wandering hoards of gays and lesbians that spend their every waking moment trying to convert our children, life will be good.
The commercial is schmaltzy cute, nothing wrong with that. No matter who objects to what, there are those that will disagree. We're all allowed that privilege here. But for OMM to single out Ellen, who is a humanitarian, first class, as well as all her other attributes ... is just not necessary. If you don't like JCPenney, then don't go there. I wonder ... if one of those OMMs were on her 12-days of Giveaways, would they take the loot or stick to their principals and give it back?
Of course, no mention in this article of how the lgbt community reacted towards Chick-Fil-A a few months back, right. Oh sure... try and sweep that one under the rug.
This article is so double-standard! Who cares if folks vote with their wallets. That's what makes this country so great! We all have opinions as varying as our noses and are free to express them so long as they don't progress toward hatred, violence or crime.
It sounds like Christians want all companies to ban all gay people so that they can have no jobs and be homeless? I seriously don't think Jesus would have been ok with that.
As far as I can tell the One Million Mom group doesn’t have enough class to even shop at JC Penny. Who cares what a bunch of WACKO so called Christians have to say anymore. The Christian faith is full of ignorant ****es that are dying off and what ones don’t die off soon, the rest of the world will get rid of THANK GOD!
Ellen, continue to be the wonderful good person you are and I will continue to shop at JC Penny as long as you are the spokesperson!
JC Penney certainly has my business and always will! The OMM protest didn't work in February and it probably won't work now. Why not put your efforts into helping those less fortunate than you, like the bible actually says, instead of this protest that probably won't even make a ding in JC Penney's sales?
As far as religion & science goes? As science advances with micro & nano biology, I find it hard for anyone to believe there wasn't an intelligent designer, but I respect the person regardless of what they choose to believe.
I'm agreeing that JC Penney has a right to hire whoever they want as their spokesperson.
And Ellen certainly has a right to say what she wants to, on her own show.
But let's look at this from both sides. Homosexual activists were very upset when Chick-Fil-A's owner stated his beliefs. Ban him. Crash their "party" by having kiss-ins, etc. The people who showed up at the restaurants were shown nothing but RESPECT and given the same excellent service all customers receive.
These One Million Moms gals have a right to their opinion. It's called free speech.f
Both sides need to remember this and stop bashing each other.
And, by the way, I am a "conservative Christian". I just think we all need to stop hating and learn to respect each other.
