American Family Association Wants JC Penney to Dump Ellen DeGeneres Because She’s Gay
LOS ANGELES — One Million Moms — a project of the American Family Association — is very angry at JC Penney.
No, not because it sells sweater vests (heck, Rick Santorum is a fan of those), but because the Texas-based department store has hired Ellen DeGeneres as a spokeswoman.
And DeGeneres is — cue the scary music — gay, and open about it.
Emboldened by recent success in defunding healthcare for women (Planned Parenthood, etc.) and the high profile wingnuts running for office at all levels of government, the Fischer crowd is setting its sights on additional targets. Note that apparently, corporate free speech is only a good thing when the corporations are saying what the nutters want them to.
