    Those million moms(40,000) seems to imply that God is working for them…some kind of direct line with God…how stupid and foolish….

    1. Paddyswurds 3 Jun 2012, 11:30am

      There is no OMMs, it is just one bigoted old duffer, Don Wildmon who runs the American Family Association and OMM is just another letter head he has come up with inspired by a throw away comment made by the erudite and gifted Sarah Palin.

      Why don’t we just call these people for what they are.

      “One Million parents who would make any of their gay childrens lives unliveable”.

      That is NOT what being a parent about, and they need to be taught it.

      Deeming personal bigotry more important than your child is just sick.

      The sad thing is that these vile cretins cannot see that simple truth.

      No matter what they say. These people are NOT Christians.

  2. Thought for the day an ignored troll is an angry troll. Make a troll angry today.

    1. …and watch it degrade itself with its hilarious rants. Poor animal….

      1. Paddyswurds 3 Jun 2012, 11:32am

        I just automaticall thumbs down this troll and i don’t ever read his comments or those who reply to him I thumb them down as well….

      2. Paddyswurds 3 Jun 2012, 11:32am

        I just automatically thumbs down this troll and Idon’t ever read his comments or those who reply to him I thumb them down as well….

        1. Ironic when most people do that to you.

          1. Paddyswurds 3 Jun 2012, 12:45pm

            @Dave…
            …..Truth is not a virtue you treasure, I take it. Have a look through past posts and you will find that you are being stupid or disingenuous or both…..

  3. *Yawn*.

    Will they give up? They do not represent the people who actually buy and shop there and who don’t care that JCPenny’s advertising contains two members of the same gender.

    1. Paddyswurds 3 Jun 2012, 11:36am

      It matters to Gay dads AND GLBs that they are considered a valued part of JC Penny’s customer base….
      It also tells Don Wildmon that he is just another religious crazie toi be baited and ignored……

  4. This is disgusting. I will not shop at JC Penney probably ever again. I see no benefit to the store for it’s support of this. What in the world are they thinking. The share holders of this company should be up in arms against the management. This store just needs to die and go away.

    1. Interesting comment. Personally, I find wilful stupidity disgusting, not this ad.

      1. Indeed, Rehan. Who on earth thinks a store should “die and go away.”! LOL! td must be 5.

    2. Paddyswurds 3 Jun 2012, 11:43am

      Au Contrair, it is religious crazies that should give up, go away and die…. JC Penney is right to demonstrate that they will run their company as they see fit, not the way some religion crazed yokel, Don Wildmon from the backwoods of Tupelo, Mississippi. Mississippi. ffs.!!! Hardly a hotbed of reason and understanding.

    3. Go away and emote irrationally somewhere else, bigot.

  5. I am so proud that finally large corporations are willing to stop discrimination. Who are we to judge? When people stop judging one another we will truly a better society. Thanks penny’s for standing up.

  6. Spanner1960 3 Jun 2012, 8:20am

    Oh dear. JC Penney’s shares will crash once One Miserable Mom starts boycotting them. Sales of camiknickers and heated rollers will plummet.

    1. Paddyswurds 3 Jun 2012, 11:48am

      Not unless Don Wildmon has taken to wearing them , which,
      come to think of it, he probably does. Homophobes are usually secret self hating drag queens…..

  7. That’s called advertising.

    Isn’t it good to see that GLBT can be targeted as well ? We shop as much as everyone else so why not!

    1. Ignore it Bazza, its just some med-deprived freak in need of attention, bless. Its a product of of poor schooling, so it makes no sense to try reason with it. Its mother seems to have drunk and smoked considerable when she was pregnant with her brothers child.

      1. Dr Robin Guthrie 3 Jun 2012, 6:38pm

        Indeed. It hangs off of Archbishop Cranmers web site like a bad smell.

        All bigoted god botherers together.

        No doubt the goon flips burgers for a living, but calls itself “Inspector General” in order to maintain some self worth of its miserable existance.

        Come on. Who the hell refers to themselves in the 3rd person.

    2. and the more we appear in positive imagery in the media the sooner we shall achieve full acceptance in society, and the bigots can crawl back under their Xian rock with the racists and creationists and tea party nutters

    1. Is this really relevant? Running out of sites to post your rubbish?

    2. Angela what has this to do with the story about Target? If you must post that then let’s have the full information the man behind that website is Tom Huckstep Domain name: tangledwebs.org.uk Registrant: Tom Huckstep Registrant type: UK Individual . From his own pages ‘In 2010 Tom found his biological father.

      http://www.searchingformyspermdonorfather.org/searching/tom/

      Is this you Angela? https://www.facebook.com/angela.horne.378 Interests include, The Bible, Likes, British Freedom, English Defence League Luton Division, Christian Welfare Organisation, I like my Crucifix, Walk with Jesus, Rick Santorum, and Gospel Music.

      If this is you, I think it’s likely you thought you were having a sly dig at the two men with their children in the photograph, a bit of an under the radar troll was it? Well Angela you’ve had your two minutes in future you will be ignored.

      1. nice bit of research… thanks for effort

    3. Paddyswurds 3 Jun 2012, 11:51am

      Another ill conceived (pun intended) group of religious crazies who want to control other peoples fertility or lack of. What exactly do you think this has to do with Gay people or a GLB web site??

      1. I’m guessing that strapping 6feet 2inches Tom has emotional unresolved issues with his birth Mother and had found a way of having a ‘legitimate’ hissy fit to punish her. Why how dare she have an anoymous sperm donar etc type of thing. The religionists target Gay men and women on the assumption that this is our method of choice for having children, so Angela drops by to give us Tom’s ‘hard luck story’ with the line that, if it was so traumatic for poor Tom, just think how awful it will be for children born to Gays. It just a guess on my part but I think Angela is the usual Christian troll we are banning from this site.

  8. And the Bible is the word of God? It seems to have been written by men who mostly hung around with other men! Some people need to get a life and stop interfering in everyone elses

    1. What makes me laugh is, their god made man in his own image, so the first thing god makes is not a woman, but a man. God has a penis, God makes his angels so he wont be alone, and Lucifer (male) is the most beautiful of the lot, are we getting an idea that god is a bit of a fan of the male form here? So the By-Bullists are the most rigidly misogynous psychopaths you can imagine worship the macho the big dick in the sky. Then according to the myths along comes this nice Jewish lad who loves his Mother, Jesus, who hangs around with 12 men but who is really, no really fond of one particular member of the gang. The rest as they say is down to the interpretations of the crazies in the many ‘churches’.

  9. One Million Moms just makes me laugh at their own incompetence. Every time they complain about something it either gives it free publicity and helps makes it a sell out hit (such as with the Archie comic), or they end up making idiots of themselves by getting out-posted on their own Facebook page by pro-LGBT people (such as with the recent Green Lantern story). It’s hilarious!

    1. Paddyswurds 3 Jun 2012, 2:03pm

      One Million moms is actually just a letter head dreamed up by the vile Don Wildmon who runs the equally vile American Family Association, nothing more. He came up with this concept when inspired by a throwaway comment of the wonderful Sarah Palin, Geography, History and General Knowledge expert and sometime Guvnor of Alaska, population 722k.

  10. The 367 Bigoted Moms aren’t going to be happy about this… but it’s great, a really cute ad, if I was American I’d buy from JC Penney!

    1. Is it just me who now wish they had a branch over here so we could show some support?

  11. 40,000 members… yea that’s close enough to call yourselves the “One MILLION Moms”. *laughs sarcastically*

    who are these crazy bible thumpers?

    i think that a federal ban on anti-equality groups is in place… i mean there’s really no other non-violent way of shutting these bigots up.

    To be perfectly honest, if the same advertising campaigns where held here in Ireland or in the UK. Some people would be pissed, but by no means would anyone try to boycott the company in doing so. In Ireland (where I am) gay people don’t have equal rights, but are able to have a civil partnership (to avoid confrontations between religion and LGBTQ people, which is understandable, since 86% of Irish people stated they’re Christian in the last Census). But this whole anti-gay BS throughout America is just stupid. No-one is asking you to personally accept gay people, but just to have respect for your fellow human being, simple as, and to bring up your children and you see fit.

  13. I feel desperately sorry for the chidren of these anti-Christ One Million Mums. To be brought up in an environment of hate cannot be good for the children at all and certainly not good for all the gay children produced by that lot. Child abuse and unconstitutional are some of the words that spring to mind.

  14. I bought some great shirts there some years back. Good to see great ads too!

  15. right on! show those gcb’s what the jc in penney stands for!

  16. 40,000 Moms oops! 1million moms wants biblical family values. How about the family values that King Soloman teaches with his 700 wives and 300 concubines?
