These pseudo-Christian Bigots are just bursting out in puss filled pustules of hatred and bigotry. They are beside themselves in all their un-American glory at not being able to deny their fellow citizens their equal rights and dignity.
Antigay Group in Tizzy Over Two Grooms

Macy’s, the retailer who has been among the staunchest LGBT corporate supporters, is under attack again, this time by One Million Moms, a small antigay group billed as “a project of the with the American Family Association.” The problem? Two tiny grooms, barely visible, atop a wedding cake in an advertisement that was sent to homes last week. The ad, an enticement to join Macy’s gift registry, features a car with a trunk full of wedding and honeymoon paraphernalia, from that festooned wedding cake to vintage luggage.
It was apparently enough to rile the Moms, who wrote on their website, that instead of making sales, Macy’s had “offended many customers in the process. The back cover looks like just a regular advertisement for their wedding registry service, but there is one major difference. When you take a closer look you see the cake topper of two men instead of the traditional man and woman. The ad also includes a license plate that reads ‘I do’ and hearts scattered everywhere. Macy’s must believe this is mainstream, but just because gay marriage is legal in a few states, this is inappropriate marketing and conservative customers will not support it.”
Hate Group Pressuring J.C. Penney to Drop Ellen DeGeneres
American retail chain J.C. Penney announced last week that it will forge a new partnership with talk show host Ellen DeGeneres. Company president Michael Francis said, “We couldn’t think of a better partner to help us put the fun back into the retail experience.”
But One Million Moms, a project of the anti-gay American Family Association (designated as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center), is pressuring J.C. Penney to drop DeGeneres because the People’s Choice Award winner for Favorite Daytime TV Host “offends traditional families” and claims that the majority of the company’s customers “will no longer shop there.”
Minister Calls Pro-Equality Starbucks “Hater of God”

Claiming that Starbucks’ support of marriage equality means it “hates God,” ultraconservative minister Steven Andrew is calling on Christians to get their caffeine buzz elsewhere.
The Seattle-based coffee purveyor is among more than 100 companies that have pledged support for marriage equality in Washington State. The state Senate Wednesday approved a bill that would grant marriage rights to same-sex couples, and the House of Representatives is expected to follow suit soon.
In an online post published this week, Andrew, president of a California-based group called USA Christian Ministries, says all Christians and their churches should boycott Starbucks. “Christians are upset with Starbucks for turning against God, but we are glad to know that Starbucks doesn’t pretend to be for Christians,” he says in the post. He cites Bible verses that call homosexuality “an abomination” and those who oppose biblical tenets “haters of God.”
