They’re Back! Anti-Gay Group Calls For Boycott Of JC Penney’s Over Ellen Degeneres Christmas Ad
Christian conservative anti-gay activist group, One Million Moms (hereby known as OMM), are calling for yet another boycott of JC Penney’s because of the commercial presence of lesbian comedian/TV host Ellen DeGeneres.
“Since April, JC Penney’s has not aired Ellen DeGeneres in one of their commercials until now. A new JCP ad features Ellen and three elves,” the perpetually-offended-by-something group said. “JCP has made their choice to offend a huge majority of their customers again. Christians must now vote with their wallets.”
The ad in question features DeGeneres in what looks like a North Pole diner, meeting with several of Santa’s elves to plead with them to increase toy production for an upcoming JC Penney’s promotional giveaway.
DeGeneres has been married to actress Portia de Rossi since 2008. OMM has called for Ellen-related boycotts of JCP in the past, but the conservative group says they’ve been ignored.
Earlier this year, the group explained its opposition to DeGeneres as such:
“Funny that JC Penney thinks hiring an open homosexual spokesperson will help their business when most of their customers are traditional families. DeGeneres is not a true representation of the type of families that shop at their store. The majority of JC Penney shoppers will be offended and choose to no longer shop there. The small percentage of customers they are attempting to satisfy will not offset their loss in sales.”
So it looks like even when homosexual liberal secularists like DeGeneres engage in the Christmas spirit, Christian conservatives like OMM still believe the War on Christmas™ is in full steam… because lesbians were not part of the original Christmas story!
