Posted to the Family Research Council’s website:
Target clearly hasn’t learned their lesson. Rather than pivoting after the backlash, the boycotts, and plummeting sales, they have decided to continue swimming upstream
To most people’s surprise, Target has leaned into the very agenda that caused their demise. So, naturally, with Christmas around the corner, Pride ornaments are next on the agenda! Never mind the fact that this strategy completely failed in June.
Part of Target’s LGBT Christmas line includes things like a nutcracker holding a Progress Pride Flag and wearing a Pride hat. It’s advertised with the slogan, “Show your love and support for the LGBTQIA+ community.”
Meg Kilgannon, senior fellow for Education Studies at Family Research Council, said it’s especially important we avoid shopping at places like Target during Christmas.
She commented to The Washington Stand, “Target selling sexually themed Christmas ornaments is more evidence that we live in a post-Christian society. The virgin birth of the Savior of the world in a stable in Bethlehem is what we celebrate. The goodness, truth, and beauty of that reality is not improved or enhanced by woke merchandising campaigns.”
