One Million Pledge to Boycott Target Over Allowing Men Identifying as Women in Women’s Restrooms

Over one million Americans have signed a pledge to boycott the retail giant Target after officials announced that customers and employees are permitted to use the restroom that correlates with their “gender identity.”

As previously reported, Target outlined its company policy last week surrounding controversy over “bathroom bills” passed in North Carolina and Mississippi.

“In our stores, we demonstrate our commitment to an inclusive experience in many ways. Most relevant for the conversations currently underway, we welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity,” the announcement said.

“We regularly assess issues and consider many factors such as impact to our business, guests and team members. Given the specific questions these legislative proposals raised about how we manage our fitting rooms and restrooms, we felt it was important to state our position,” it continued.

The announcement drew both applause and criticism, and some vowed to discontinue shopping at Target until it changed its policy.

“I will no longer be shopping at Target,” one former customer wrote. “It is your right as a business to establish policies, but … you will also have to deal with the consequences.”

The Mississippi-based American Family Association (AFA) soon also launched an official pledge campaign to boycott Target. As of press time, the pledge has generated over one million signees.

“Target’s store policy endangers women and children by allowing men to frequent women’s facilities. Until Target makes the safety of women and children a priority, I will shop elsewhere,” it simply reads.

The organization said that it believes Target should provide a single occupancy restroom to help solve the issue.

“One solution is a common-sense approach and a reasonable solution to the issue of transgendered customers: a unisex bathroom. Target should keep separate facilities for men and women, but for the trans community and for those who simply like using the bathroom alone, a single occupancy unisex option should be provided,” AFA recommended.

“We want to make it very clear that AFA does not believe the transgender community poses this danger to the wider public,” President Tim Wildmon also clarified. “Rather, this misguided and reckless policy provides a possible gateway for predators who are out there.”

Mark West of Patriot Post calculated the potential financial impact of the boycott.

“I’ll use a very conservative calculation to extrapolate the impact of the #BoycottTarget petition so far. Assuming that the average customer makes two trips per month (a likely conservative number), and the signatures grow to one million (this was written just before that benchmark was passed), we arrive at $1.5 billion … in lost revenue annually to Target.”

He noted, however, that many others will not sign a petition and will “simply leave Target in disgust as they see a company that has abandoned common sense values.”

As previously reported, Target has also expressed their support for homosexuality in their company advertisements, releasing a commercial in 2014 that features two lesbian women who are preparing a room for the arrival of a child.

    When my spouse and I visited our Target this morning, it was packed.

    • acontraryview

      Parking lot was full when I went by. Maybe they were just there to use the restroom.

      • The Last Trump

        Must have been making returns.

        • acontraryview

          Didn’t seem so considering the number of people I saw coming out of the store pushing shopping carts and carrying bags.

          Haha – nice one, Trump!

          • Slidellman4life

            And that statement is the dumbest I have read today. At the very least, the benchmark has been set, but I do not think it will be surpassed.

          • gizmo23

            What Christian boycotts have worked? Disney, Srarbucks, etc ?

          • Ronald Carter

            It backfires spectacularly in most cases, and Starbucks is the best example I can give you. When people get a whiff of a boycott put together by the Christian right they stand firmly against it. One Million Moms got so obnoxious that there’s now a group called “Four Million Moms (and Dads) Telling One Million Moms to SHUT UP”.

          • ComeOnPeople!

            I see so you agree with the censorship of those you disagree with? Like the media, you are one sided. You tote tolerance yet only for one side. You scream discrimination all while you discriminate . Whoa unto the people who call good , evil and evil, good.

          • Ronald Carter

            Pretty hilarious, here you are censoring on a grand scale, doing the exact thing you accuse me of, but somehow when YOU do it it’s OK because Jesus.

          • ComeOnPeople!

            The blind leading the blind. Having ears to hear you hear not and eyes to see you see not. I have never censored anyone. Your statement with caps on Shut up is speaking of a group telling another group to shut up. That group of which you must agree with is telling another group of which you and they disagree with to shut up. Silencing others is censorship and our corrupt media and government is quickly doing just that. One side being spun in the media as the other side is being demonized.

          • Ronald Carter

            Once again, you excuse your own censorship. Why is One Million Moms being told to shut up? Because they are CENSORING based on their religion, and people are standing up to them and yes, telling them to shut up. Why is it OK when YOU censor, but not OK when people react to it?

          • ComeOnPeople!

            No the one million moms where only using their right to speak freely, the others wanted their voices heard but also wanted those who didn’t believe like them silenced . I can stand for something and disagree with those who have a different view but I should never demand that those with a different view shut up. Grown ups agree to disagree.

          • Ronald Carter

            One Million Moms can speak freely without organizing hateful and destructive boycotts. That’s got nothing to do with “speaking”. That is censorship.

    • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

      That’s bc u live in a liberal Blue State whose voter base r the LGBTQs, Blacks, Hispanics, feminists, lazy n irresponsible poor folks with EBT welfare cards, impressionable n naive youths/students, unionized workers, environmentalists, etc.
      …….Like they say, “Birds of a feather, flock or shop together.”

        Nope, we live in a gun-totin’, Bible-thumpin’ Red-neck state.

    • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

      IOW, only Target stores in conservative Red States will be substantially affected by this boycott, not in liberal Blue States.

    • ComeOnPeople!

      Packed I hope with only 1% of the population for which they are catering to.

  • acontraryview

    Over 1,000,000! Wow! That is bound to have an impact. So let’s assume that 30% of those folks never shopped at Target anyway. That leaves 700,000. Target has 1,800 stores, that’s an average of 389 shoppers per store. The average Target customer visits a Target once per week. So, that would mean a loss of 55 customers a day!!!! How will Target survive??????????

      Headlines yesterday, April 29th:

      “Target loses $1.5 billion as boycott reaches 1 million”
      “Target’s stock has taken a nose dive since it announced it was opening up its restrooms and changing rooms to people of both sexes”

      Oh, you thought this was just about walk-in traffic?
      Silly goose.

      • acontraryview

        I’d love to see the source of those headlines.

        Target last reported earnings on February 24th. They report earnings quarterly. So there next earnings report won’t be until May 24th. It would great to find out who is leaking insider information regarding Target’s earnings ahead of their public release. Where did you find that headline?

        “”Target’s stock has taken a nose dive since it announced it was opening up its restrooms and changing rooms to people of both sexes””

        Really? Target stock was up on Friday and is near a 5-year high. Target stock closed at $79.77 on April 11th. It closed Friday at $79.52. Wow. 25 cents. Quite the nose dive.

        Oh, wait, I found the article you are referring to. They are talking about the total market cap of target dropping my 1.5 billion. Which, considering their market cap is about $50 Billion is not that much. In addition, the market cap of Target is near a 5 year high.

        • The Last Trump

          Update:

          “1.1 Million Families Join AFA’s Target Boycott.
          Stock Takes $2.5 Billion Hit”

          Thought you’d want to know.
          You know, in case you were considering selling.

          • acontraryview

            Update:

            Target Stock up today to close at $80.13. Stock has NOT taken a $2.5 Billion Hit. That is a lie.

            Thought you’d want to know. You know, in case you were interested in the truth.

            “You know, in case you were considering selling.”

            I wish I owned Target stock. If I had bought in mid-January I’d have about a 30% profit by now plus the 2.8% dividend, which certainly beats savings rates by a mile.

          • Ronald Carter

            It means nothing, it’s a Breitbart headline.

      • Ronald Carter

        Let’s talk in a month about how badly off Target is. Let’s synchronize watches.

        • ComeOnPeople!

          Again this has nothing to do with destroying Target. Christians choosing to shop elsewhere is a way to put into action what they believe. It is a way to be heard because the corrupt media only spins one side. A boycott is more about those boycotting. Target will survive because they have money but so will Christians morals and values if they stand up and put what they believe into action. Target will survive immorally , while those who walk away, walk away holding onto their integrity and morals.

          Yes the wicked prosper in this world and it’s hard to understand but when you go into the house of the LORD and study and know HIS ways, you understand their end. It’s not about destroying those who appose GOD and HIS truth, it’s about standing with GOD and HIS TRUTHS.

          King David penned this beautifully…

          Truly God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a CLEAN heart.
          But as for me, my feet were ALMOST gone; my steps had well nigh slipped. For I was ENVIOUS at the FOOLISH, when I saw the PROSPERITY of the WICKED. For there are no bands in their death: but their strength is firm. They are not in trouble as OTHER men; neither are they plagued like OTHER men. Therefore PRIDE compasseth them about as a CHAIN; VIOLENCE covereth them as a garment. Their eyes stand out with FATNESS: they have more than heart could wish. They are CORRUPT, and SPEAK WICKEDLY concerning OPPRESSION: they speak LOFTLY.
          THEY SET THEIR MOUTH AGAINST HEAVEN, and THEIR TONGUE WALKETH through the earth.

          Therefore his people return hither: and waters of a full cup are wrung out to them. And they say, How doth God know? and is there knowledge in the most High? Behold, these are the UNGODLY, WHO PROSPER IN THE WORLD; THEY INCREASE IN RICHES.

          Verily I have CLEANED my heart in vain, and WASHED my hands in INNOCENCE. For all the day long have I been plagued, and chastened every morning. If I say, I will speak thus; behold, I should offend against the generation of thy children. When I thought to know this, it was too PAINFUL for me; Until I went into the sanctuary of God; THEN UNDERSTOOD I THEIR END.

          Surely thou didst set them in SLIPPERY PLACES: thou castedst them down into DESTRUCTION. How are they brought into DESOLATION, as in a moment! they are UTTERLY CONSUMED WITH TERROR.
          As a dream when one awaketh; so, O Lord, when thou awakest, thou shalt DESPISE THEIR IMAGE.

          Thus my heart was GRIEVED, and I was pricked in my reins.
          So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before thee.
          Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me by my right hand. Thou shalt GUIDE me with THY COUNCIL, and afterward RECIEVE me to GLORY. Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee. My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the STRENTH of my heart, and my PORTION for ever.

          For, lo, THEY THAT ARE FAR FROM THEE SHALL PERISH: thou hast DESTROYED ALL OF THEM that go a WHORING FROM THEE.

          But it is good for me to draw near to God:I PUT MY TRUST IN THE LORD GOD, THAT I MAY DECLARE ALL THY WORKS.

          • Ronald Carter

            Christians absolutely can choose to shop elsewhere. Other Christians who disagree can likewise choose to NOT give in to hate and fear-mongering, as well as atheists, people of other faiths, or anyone who recognizes that we do not live in a Christian theocracy. And this is the reason the Target boycott will fail. I don’t even need to argue about that. I’m right. It will fail spectacularly.

          • ComeOnPeople!

            It will not fail because again it is not about the boycotted but about those boycotting. If you stand for what you belief, you never loose. You hold onto your morals and values. You have a peace that passes all understanding when you walk in HIS ways and try to help others back to HIM. It matters not if you appear to loose in this life because as David found out every man has an end and every man must stand before a righteous King one day. As to Christian the term is thrown around very loosely and yet the word actually means Christ like. If a person practices lawlessness or does not walk as Christ walked that person may call them selves whatever they choose but they are not true Christians by definition. God’s people keep HIS ways and are set apart because HE is Holy. We serve a righteous King and try to live under HIS rulership to the best of our abilities. And a Christ like person would never recreate HIS creation to make man kind something after our imaginations and l
            usts. As to fear and hate… That is not coming from true Christians. A
            true Christian loves everyone yet hates sin because it separates men from their Creator. A true Christian fears no one but God who holds the power of hell , death and the grave. Your post does not even affect me because I know the God I serve and I know what pleases Him. I will not shop at Target not to make Target fail but to stand on a high ground . I also have long stopped going to starbucks. Did I proclaim it to the world or start a boycott. NO! I enjoy pleasing my KING by practicing what I believe.

          • Ronald Carter

            “Those boycotting” are not all Christians. They aren’t even a large percentage of all Christians. They are a small, loud faction of Christians whom other Christians distance themselves from for this very reason.

            And any time one of you starts talking about “true Christians” you need to make yourself aware of what the No True Scotsman fallacy is. There are many, many Christians out there who have no interest in boycotting Target and they are no less Christian than you are because of it.

          • ComeOnPeople!

            Again Christian means to be Christ like. Christ kept the ways of God perfectly and would never agree with a departure of it. If He veered from the word of even the slightest He could not be the Messiah. He would be a false messiah. Any who depart from the instructions given in the word of God and teach others to do the same are false teachers. They serve their own bellies and not the King of kings.Sad that people actually believe that just because one calls themselves a Christian it makes them one. But hey in this new way of thinking a man can say he’s a woman and everyone believes it. Sorry but reality says otherwise and actions speak louder then words.

        There are two types of corporations that liberals will always support, Trump: those that kill 1000 pre-born babies a day in Amerika and those that cave to the Gaystapo. Notice how the Bernie Sanders types suddenly become Wall Street “experts” on a story like this one. 🙂

        On the plus side, Target can cut down on janitorial service costs since everyone is afraid to use their bathrooms. I predict that their stock price will recover. 🙂

      • Cady555

        That’s ludicrous. For 1 million customers to have a $1.5 billion impact, each customer must equate to $1,500 in net protits. If Target’s profit margin were 2.5%, each of those 1 million customers would need to have been spending $60,000 per year at Target to have this impact.

            Yep, they have lost some serious market cap over the corresponding boycott – that is for sure. It will be interesting to see if this is long-running or not. I suspect it will be, maybe more moderated – I began boycotting Target years ago based on their involvement in some things un-Christian and have never returned. Frankly, I thought their stuff was not well-made and too expensive anyway.

            Not sure this will kill them, but you are right that they are foolish to even attempt to die on this hill.

    • ComeOnPeople!

      It’s not about destroying Target it’s about standing on what you believe and being willing to do so even if it means you don’t shop at a favorite store anymore. It’s about letting your voice be heard by your actions. No one really cares if Target goes under, that is not why people boycott .

      • Ronald Carter

        And other people who disagree with you will also stand up for what they believe. This is that part that never seems to register with you. Other people’s opinions are just as valid as yours.

        • ComeOnPeople!

          Um what never seems to register with the other side on this board is that responses to a post are not just talking into the air, it is a direct response to the post or posts right above their post. So hmmm read above my post and then maybe just maybe it will register with you what I was expressing in regard to Target loosing or not loosing money. You are so fixed on the fact that I disagree with you that you can’t see the forest for the trees.

          • Ronald Carter

            Fine. You stand up for what you believe in and do it with whatever means necessary. But tell me what happens when you find out that there are a LOT more people who disagree with you who will, if necessary, start urging people who hate discrimination and hatred to shop at Target more than ever before? Did you learn nothing from the Starbucks situation?

          • ComeOnPeople!

            Again you have no clue to what my point is. My point is that ALL people have the right to stand up for what they believe in. Yes that even means YOU and those who agree with your view point. It’s not about hatred or discrimination it’s about being free to say I disagree with you. If you shut up one group that right there is discrimination but if ALL are able to exercise their right to speak freely then you truly have a country that is free. My point was that a company being boycotted whether it is by Christians or not is much more about those standup up for what they believe then about the company loosing money. As to me learning something about the Starbucks situation I learned that some stand until they care more about their morning coffee then their morals and values, while others keep standing and make their coffee at home. Some practice and keep what they believe while others only give lip service. It’s who you are when no one is around that counts. Even this post is nothing if it is mere lip service simple to ease ones conscious . So please urge people to shop at target and even try to urge me if you like. Here in the USA you still have the freedom to do so.

          • Ronald Carter

            One Million Moms doesn’t simply stand up for what they believe in as you seem to think. They call for damaging and destructive boycotts over things they don’t like, and that is why they are being told to shut up. When you said I didn’t understand, you were wrong. I understand perfectly. The morals and values they are demanding are not shared by all and they need to learn that.

          • ComeOnPeople!

            Then please do tell them you disagree. You have the right to do so. But don’t expect them to shut up merely because you disagree with them. I have no clue who they are or what they stand for, I merely was commenting on your post about them being told to shut up by an opposing view. It use to be that mature people agreed to disagree but it appears as if our society is creating intolerants . One side screams intolerance while offering no tolerance to the opposing view. I still believe that everyone should have the right to speak what they believe even someone else disagrees when them.

          • Ronald Carter

            “Shut up” in this case isn’t an attempt to silence their speech. It’s telling them to curtail their censorship practices. And that should be very obvious.

          • ComeOnPeople!

            The very definition of “Shut up” is … a direct command with a meaning very similar to “be quiet”‘, but which is commonly perceived as a more forceful command to stop making noise or otherwise communicating, such as talking. Its use is generally considered rude and impolite.

            Anyone telling others to shut up is telling them to stop talking.

            Ok I’m done with beating a dead horse now. But I’ll refrain from telling you to shut up because well I simple believe everyone should be allowed to speak.

    • Cady555

      How many of the “$1 million” signed the boycott more than once to bump up the numbers?

      This is a drop in the bucket.

    • RWH

      This whole thing is stupid in many ways. I know of at least two trans people, one who transitioned as a male and another who transitioned as a female). If either of these people were to use the “proper” bathroom, there would be a bigger riot. The one passes so well as a male that no one would bat an eye. The same goes for the one that passes as a female. Both would get very, very rich suing the pants off the whistleblowers who wanted to cause a riot, especially if the individuals were hurt in any way. When people whistle blow, they had better make very well sure that they are correct. Years ago, someone tried to get a teacher in a local school district fired based on some sort of allegation that turned out to be patently false. Once the teacher was able to document the truth, she took the individual to court and bankrupted her accuser.

  • The Last Trump

    In another article:

    “Award winning journalist David Kupelian noted that only a few years ago, virtually everybody in the world would have agreed it’s “stark, raving mad” to allow grown men to use a women’s restroom or locker room.

    “Today, it is still stark, raving mad,” he said. “But the lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender movement, fueled by its success in imposing same-sex marriage on America, is now trying to force middle America to pretend that a serious mental illness, one that frequently involves amputating healthy body parts in a desperate but impossible quest to morph into the opposite sex, is perfectly normal and we must all join in the pretense or be demonized or legally prosecuted”

    But Kupelian believes his fellow countrymen see through the pro-transgender propaganda.
    “Most Americans recognize the ‘transgender movement’ for what it is – a deeply misguided campaign to normalize mental illness and to force all Americans to abandon their common sense and core values and affirm and celebrate what is really pathological delusion,” he said.

    Michael Brown, president of FIRE School of Ministry and author of “Outlasting the Gay Revolution,” noted in a recent column that a Target representative responded to one outraged customer by writing anyone who had a problem with the new bathroom policy could use the single-occupancy handicapped bathroom.

    “So, rather than telling the less than 1 percent who struggle with their gender identity to use the handicapped bathroom, Target is telling them to use the larger men and ladies bathrooms, while telling the 99 percent to use the single handicapped facility,” Brown wrote.
    “This is just plain insanity.”

    But this, THIS, is the hill Target is willing to die on!?
    R.I.P. Target 🙁

      So, this policy is bad because a bunch of conservatives call it mean names?

        I hope only the 1 % they are catering to give them loads of business and enjoy the bathroom of their choosing.

        • Ambulance Chaser

          I doubt they will. However, the other 80% percent of the population who are not trans but will continue to shop there will.

      From Wikipedia:

      “Because of [Michael Brown’s] stances on homosexuality, he has been profiled extensively to be among the groups and leaders that the Southern Poverty Law Center considers to be hate groups.” “In September 2012, the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Intelligence Report named Brown among “30 New Activists Heading Up the Radical Right.”

            Again, lots of hot air, but no proof other than your own biases. Have you actually looked at the web page? If you have, you will see carefully documented evidence that allows anyone to go back to primary documents. They don’t cherry pick from quotes to make things say what they don’t. We can’t say the same about the other side. Lots of paranoia and unsupported accusations

          • Slidellman4life

            Let’s see…you have Floyd Corkins, the attack on a Jewish ministry, posting lists of “anti-g-y” websites which helped inspire Corkins, and a clown named RWH pretending none of this exists while accusing me of being biased.

            Hypocrite much?

          • Ronald Carter

            Spoken like a true conspiracy theorist. Hard to imagine anyone who’d battle against an organization that takes on the KKK and the Westboro Baptist church, and yet here you are.

          • Slidellman4life

            Spoken like a true imbecile.

        • RWH

          The SPLC doesn’t provide addresses on its map. Corkins had to find out that stuff on his own. However, the man who murdered Ken Tiller at the Reformation Lutheran Church on a Sunday morning knew exactly where to go and when because he was provided the information by one of our “Christian” pro-life people. People in the pro-life side have committed murder more than once. There are no documented cases where someone on the pro-choice side provided someone with clear instructions to go out and murder as happened to Tiller.

          • Slidellman4life

            Tiller is not relevant. The SPLC is. Corkins specifically said his actions were the result of the SPLC’s.

            Game over. Case closed.

          • RWH

            The case may be over for you, but I doubt whether you are open enough to look at the truth. There is no evidence that anyone from SPLC helped him other than his word. On the other hand, investigators found documented evidence in the case of George Tiller. All you have is smoke and mirrors and a belief based on what someone claims, but the claim is not backed with any sort of proof.

          • Ronald Carter

            And the SPL’s own website debunks that. Selective reading?

            Confessed Terrorist Floyd Corkins Admits to Using SPLC Target List

            Are you simply a moron or a liar of pathological proportions?

          • Ronald Carter

            As RWH says above, but which you keep choosing to ignore:

            “The SPLC doesn’t provide addresses on its map. Corkins had to find out that stuff on his own.”

            Also, would you like to provide a link that states that the SPLC urges people to go out and kill?

        • Ronald Carter

          The old flim-flam logic of the religious right yet again. “if you stand up to hate, you are yourself a hater.” Sure, let’s just let YOUR religion dictate the rights and freedoms of the rest of us.

      • ComeOnPeople!

        Get ready folks… History is repeating itself. Right before major persecution media uses propaganda to demonize a group of people. By the time the persecution starts the masses are primed and ready to allow that group to be slandered . We now have a society which is calling good, evil and evil, good. One day they will kill anyone who stands on the word of God… thinking they are doing God a favor.

    Oh those pesky facts. Target stock closing price on the last business day of the month since Jan 2015:

    4/29/16 79.50
    3/31/16 82.28
    2/29/16 78.45
    1/29/16 72.42
    12/31/15 72.61
    11/30/15 72.50
    10/30/15 77.18
    9/30/15 78.66
    8/31/15 77.71
    7/31/15 81.85
    6/30/15 81.63
    5/29/15 79.32
    4/30/15 78.83
    3/31/15 82.07
    2/27/15 76.83
    1/30/15 73.61

    $79.50 is well within the normal range for Target stock. This fluctuation is meaningless.

    Just about every major company in the US has the same policy.

  • Slidellman4life

    And here we go again: People giving a giant bleep you to genetic females everywhere so less than one percent of the US population can feel good about themselves.

    And before you hit that reply button to swear up one side and down the other that is not the case, don’t bother with your lies. Single use restrooms are a very reasonable alternative, but nope. You misogynistic clowns checked reason at the door.

    Enough.

    • Ronald Carter

      “Less than one percent”

      Are you for real?

      • Slidellman4life

        Are you my imagination? God, I hope so.

        • Ronald Carter

          Well, you’re certainly not living in the real world if you think LGBT people comprise less than 1% of the population.

          • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

            He is referring only to the transgenders, which is at less than 1% of the US population.
            The bathroom law is about transgenders n not about homosexuals.

          • Slidellman4life

            I did not say that, you flippin’ idiot. I said transgendered people make up less than one percent of the US population.

  • AndrewDowling

    Lots of other reasons to boycott Target.

  • TheBottomline4This

    I only boycotted a business once many years ago, but then after much thought and prayer, came to the conclusion that over time most places would have to be avoided if I really looked into what they do and don’t support. I no longer boycott…but we should contact a company and voice our disagreement and even agreement. Tell companies what they are doing wrong and what they are getting right.

    • ComeOnPeople!

      Yes many companies have horrible morals yet they do not publicize them and one would have to study to know their policies . Yet when a company publicizes something extremely immoral it then becomes publicized knowledge and one should not go against their conscience to encourage the immorality but should stand apposed to it. It’s not about the company as much is it is about your relationship with God and obligation to stand with HIM for righteousness. How will the world know HIS ways if when they clearly deny Him as the Creator… we who know HIM do not speak with our actions.

  • ComeOnPeople!

    It’s not about Target or destroying their business it’s about standing with the righteous. It’s about Target declaring what they believe via their actions and Christians declaring what they believe by their actions.

    King David penned it beautifully…

    Truly God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a CLEAN heart.
    But as for me, my feet were ALMOST gone; my steps had well nigh slipped. For I was ENVIOUS at the FOOLISH, when I saw the PROSPERITY of the WICKED. For there are no bands in their death: but their strength is firm. They are not in trouble as OTHER men; neither are they plagued like OTHER men. Therefore PRIDE compasseth them about as a CHAIN; VIOLENCE covereth them as a garment. Their eyes stand out with FATNESS: they have more than heart could wish. They are CORRUPT, and SPEAK WICKEDLY concerning OPPRESSION: they speak LOFTLY.
    THEY SET THEIR MOUTH AGAINST HEAVEN, and THEIR TONGUE WALKETH through the earth.

    Therefore his people return hither: and waters of a full cup are wrung out to them. And they say, How doth God know? and is there knowledge in the most High? Behold, these are the UNGODLY, WHO PROSPER IN THE WORLD; THEY INCREASE IN RICHES.

    Verily I have CLEANED my heart in vain, and WASHED my hands in INNOCENCE. For all the day long have I been plagued, and chastened every morning. If I say, I will speak thus; behold, I should offend against the generation of thy children. When I thought to know this, it was too PAINFUL for me; Until I went into the sanctuary of God; THEN UNDERSTOOD I THEIR END.

    Surely thou didst set them in SLIPPERY PLACES: thou castedst them down into DESTRUCTION. How are they brought into DESOLATION, as in a moment! they are UTTERLY CONSUMED WITH TERROR.As a dream when one awaketh; so, O Lord, when thou awakest, thou shalt DESPISE THEIR IMAGE. Thus my heart was GRIEVED, and I was pricked in my reins. So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before thee.

    Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me by my right hand. Thou shalt GUIDE me with THY COUNCIL, and afterward RECIEVE me to GLORY. Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee. My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the STRENTH of my heart, and my PORTION for ever.

    For, lo, THEY THAT ARE FAR FROM THEE SHALL PERISH: thou hast DESTROYED ALL OF THEM that go a WHORING FROM THEE.

    But it is good for me to draw near to God:I PUT MY TRUST IN THE LORD GOD, THAT I MAY DECLARE ALL THY WORKS.

  • Ray Miller

    The huge majority of Americans are still Christians. The foundation of our nation, as shown by founding documents and writings, is overwhelmingly Christian. What has happened to America the past 7 years and 8 months cannot reverse that.

    • TheBottomline4This

      The majority of Americans are not Christians. They may be involved in a religion, but that doesn’t necessarily make them Christian.
      Matthew 7:20-23 says, “Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not every one that saith unto Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of Heaven; but he that doeth the will of My Father which is in Heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Thy name? and in Thy name have cast out devils? and in Thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from Me, ye that work iniquity.”

  • Chip01

    So.. It’s ok with women who identify as men, who use the mens room?

    It’s very typical that in America, the offense is a man who would dare to show any characteristics that a women might possess.

    As for the boycott, can anyone find any case where a true transgendered person attacked anyone in the bathroom? I know if lots of cases with conservative republicans… And let’s not forget all those men in dresses who molested all those poor kids, but those men were clergy, not transgendered…

  • Gena B

    If you look at the multiple companies who support gay rights, use slave labor from third world countries, and do a whole hill of other garbage that goes against God, you might have to start your own little Amish village. This is the world we live in, just use the bathroom before you leave home. They are not going to cave into pressure from people who don’t like it, and what in the world does Target have that I can’t get anywhere else? I don’t like shopping there cause most of their stuff is garbage from China and it’s cheap quality.
