Ellen DeGeneres’ JC Penney Ad: One Million Moms Give Up The Fight

Ellen DeGeneres JC Penney Ad - One Million Moms Give Up The Fight

A campaign against an Ellen DeGeneres JC Penney ad has been dropped by anti-gay group One Million Moms, which said it was “moving on” from its opposition of the commercial.

Previously, One Million Moms has accused the retail chain of jumping on the “pro-gay bandwagon” by hiring DeGeneres as its spokesperson, sensitively describing her as “not a true representation of the type of families that shop at [JC Penney].”

Earlier this week, One Million Moms resurrected their campaign against JC Penney, who use the openly gay DeGeneres as a public face in many of their campaigns. Posting on its website on Tuesday, the group declared:

“A new JCP ad features Ellen and three elves. JCP has made their choice to offend a huge majority of their customers again. Christians must now vote with their wallets.”

However, just three days into the protest, it seems One Million Moms are already in retreat. Speaking to The Christian Post, One Million Moms Director Monica Cole revealed:

“We’re not taking action, we’re moving on.”

Cole added that the campaign was not “an attack on any one person or company,” but was targeted at “the agenda behind [the JC Penney ad].” Cole did not offer any further explanation for the sudden scrubbing of the campaign.

One Million Moms is a side-project of the American Family Association (AFA), a group that has been labeled an anti-gay hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

    The cultural stew that is served up is poisonous to the spirit, numbs the mind, and binds the will. Those who are spiritually blind don't see it. Who can deny the culture wars and the aim taken against Christian values by Hollywood, most mass media, the ACLU, and their allies? Well, it's past time to fight back. People who don't understand spiritual issues have some sensitivity to financial consequences so it makes sense for boycotts when they are called for. Maybe this one was not properly executed but the idea can work when properly conceived and executed. So go ahead, bloggers from the dark side, send me your "hate" mail.

    Nobody cares about you to even bother sending you email. You are irrelevant John. And, for the record, the majority of self-identified 'Christians,' in Election Day exit polling, favored marriage equality.

    Wanna know why?

    Because it is only certain people that call themselves Christians that like to discriminate against, and subjugate, others, using carefully selected Bible verses to suit their needs.

    In the past, people have used the Bible to prevent interracial marriage, justify slavery, label women as the property of their husbands, torture and kill people who would not convert, and on and on…

    The main admonition of Jesus was to serve the poor and disenfranchised. The GOP merely serves the rich. And they do it in the name of Jesus. What have you done in your life to help the poor?

    You are spiritually blind but cannot see it because of the plank in your own eye.

    Nobody cares enough to contact you John. Have fun obsessing about gay issues.
