    msnbc.com Entertainment - J.C. Penney stands behind Ellen DeGeneres :clap2:

    J.C. Penney is turning its back on One Million Moms, a group which called for the retailer to dump talk show host Ellen DeGeneres as its national spokeswoman because she is gay.
    In an emailed statement to Yahoo! Shine on Friday, J.C. Penney confirmed it "stands behind its partnership with Ellen DeGeneres."
    One Million Moms, a project of the American Family Association, earlier said that "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 group claims to be "the most powerful tool you have to stand against the immorality, violence, vulgarity and profanity the entertainment media is throwing at your children."

    How do you feel about J.C. Penney's decision?

    The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) applauded J.C. Penney's decision to stick with DeGeneres.
    "This week Americans spoke out in overwhelming support of LGBT people and J.C. Penney’s decision not to fire Ellen simply for who she happens to love,” said Herndon Graddick, senior director of programs and communications at GLAAD.

    We need more organizations like One Million Moms to boycott stores that use perverts like Ellen De-Generate to advertise their products and services. :cool:

    I realize it's silly season, but this thread belongs in the Health and Lifestyles board.

    Yeah. Wrong forum.

    On the other hand, GOOD for JC Penney.

    JC Penney's first store was in Kemmerer, Wyoming, and may have gone by the name of "Golden Rule Store." That was the owner's policy-to treat others and you would have them treat you.

    This is way more political than health and lifestyle ... you bet.

    Hats off to JC Penney!!!

    There is likely NOT one million moms but more BS.

    Ellen seems to be very well liked in general. YES to Ellen!!!!!

    If nutcase groups did not want to children to know certain things they should not shine spot lights on their own racism.

    Of course it’s not ‘racism,’ it is ignorant, however.

    It would have been a health issue if JC Penny was standing behind Ellen and she farted. Aside from that I'm thinkin it's more political. Maybe this isn't such a bad thing,dykes gotta wear clothes too, or would you have them running around naked?
