The rabidly anti-gay group One Million Moms is back in the news once again, struggling to keep us safe from gay people everywhere. Fresh off its failure to encourage boycotts of JCPenney for its use of openly gay spokeswoman Elle Degeneres, the group has a new target in sight and this time it is Urban Outfitters.
Urban Outfitters included a picture of two lesbians passionately kissing in their latest spring catalog causes the One Million Moms to completely freak out.
The group writes on its website,
“The April 2012 catalog from Urban Outfitters has begun arriving in home mailboxes the last couple of days. On page two of this catalog is a picture of two women kissing in a face holding embrace! The ad and catalog are clearly geared toward teenagers.” The alert concludes, “The content is offensive and inappropriate for a teen who is the company’s target customer.”
Earlier this year One Million Moms took to the streets and the internet to try to raise support for the Ellen Degeneres/JCPenney boycott. They seem to have more of an opposite effect with Degeneres receiving overwhelming support from the country.
A turning point for the One Million Moms came when even arch conservative Bill O’Reilly came to Ellen’s defense on his famous Fox News Show.
Yet even today, Monica Cole, director of the One Million Moms “pro-family advocacy” group, told OneNewsNow,
“We have heard back from men and women — not just moms — saying they will no longer shop there at JC Penney, as long as Ellen DeGeneres is their spokesperson.”
I feel safer already.
Here is the full size picture as it appears in the Urban Outfitters catalog.
