Avoid JCP this Father's Day
One Million Moms (OMM) is disturbed that JC Penney's (JCP)
is continuing down the same path of promoting sin in their
advertisements. In JCP's June catalog, there is another homosexual
ad, but this time with two dads celebrating Father's Day. The
advertising booklet began arriving in mailboxes yesterday. If their
marketing department follows the same plan they did in May, this
mailer will be available to view on their website on June 1.
The ad shows two men on the floor playing and hugging their two children at home. It reads, "First Pals - What makes Dad so cool? He's the swim coach, tent maker, best friend, bike fixer and hug giver - all rolled into one. Or two. Real-life dads Todd Koch and Cooper Smith with their children Claire and Mason."
It is obvious that JCP would rather take sides than
remain neutral in the culture war. JCP will hear from the other
side so they need to hear from us as well. Our persistence will pay
off! One day we will answer for our actions or lack of them. We
must remain diligent and stand up for Biblical values and truth.
Scripture says multiple times that homosexuality is wrong, and God
will not tolerate this sinful nature.
OMM will continue to avoid shopping at JCP until they take a neutral stand. If you receive their advertising booklets or catalogs in the mail, OMM recommends you write "REFUSED...RETURN TO SENDER" on your JCPenney catalog and try sending them back. If they receive an onslaught of their returned magazines, they will take notice. Also, you may email, call, or use their contact form on their website to unsubscribe from their mailers so you will no longer have these delivered to your home. If you have a store credit card, you can close your account, if you have not already done so, to help get the message across that you have no plans to shop with them in the future. Be sure to tell them why you are unsubscribing and canceling your credit card.
Since the corporate office doesn't consider your call important and are blocking our emails, please call, or visit, your local store manager. Local managers are more likely to listen to your concerns and pass them along to the corporate office.
Please be kind and request that the store managers to pass along your concern to corporate and urge them to remain neutral in the cultural war.
