#BoycottTarget Dominates Top 10 Facebook Trends Three Days in a Row

The hashtag #BoycottTarget has topped Facebook’s top 10 trends for three days in a row from Friday through Sunday, as hundreds of thousands of Americans have signed the American Family Association’s (AFA) petition opposing the retail giant’s decision to allow men to use women’s changing rooms and bathrooms.

What began as a corporate statement of solidarity with LGBT activists has morphed into a public relations disaster for Target. On Tuesday, Target stated it “welcomes transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity.” Target added, “Everyone deserves to feel like they belong.”

Then the AFA launched its #BoycottTarget petition. As of Sunday, the AFA says 444,405 individuals have signed a pledge not to shop at Target. ...

this is a logical conclusion of economic enslavement. nafta sent jobs to china and the Chinese were used and abused with slave labor, even today many of the shops have barbed wire around the top...

so our industrial base left and we are forced to buy substandard goods. its not just these issues but the clothes themselves are immodest, thin, the colors generally unnatural.

whereas the proverbs 31 woman made wool from their sheep.

in a land as abundant as this one, surely there could be adams and eves to trade the goods on their lands... but wait, the seas of suburbia ban such forms of trade, and decentralized models are punished....

so the masses are left with corporations who have made their money on the demoralization of the peoples, no surprise they flaunt it with policies such as this.... they are in control and know it. hey, no business with them, we can't even cloth ourselves, that's kind of pathetic.

1. Target was started in 1962. For a person to boycott Target for magazines, to be consistent, that would have required them to be completely self-sufficient for not only food but non-food items that were sold at Target, because nearly all grocery stores had magazines as well as other "big box" stores.
A consistant boycott of such businesses may actually be of tremendous benefit to the church:

Among other potential advantages, if we where to be self-sufficient, then, rather than going our separate ways once the worship services conclude, we would necessesarilly be supporting each other, working together, and in close fellowship, every day, even in small matters.

2. There is no link between persons choosing the changing room/bathrooms of the opposite sex and immodesty by themselves or others.

3. You can ignore a magazine in the check out line but you cannot ignore a man in the ladies room or the ladies changing room, HUGE difference.

4. It is inaccurate to imply that the LBGTQ movement is because of alleged previous Christian compromise (for which you have no proof). The Bible clearly teaches that men shall become worse in the latter days, that they will be like in Noah's day with only evil continually in their hearts. Christians are a small minority in a unregenerate world and the acts of the unregenerate are said to come from their hearts, not ours.

5.You could pretty well guarantee if the article was about literature at the check out line, there would be universal condemnation from the people here on SA.

Target has drawn a line in the sand in favor of perversion. Walmart is a part of the NWO future FEMA camps. Christians' options are becoming very limited. We must seek the Lord.

1. Sorry, though this statement is partially true, we are not trying to demonstrate this here.

2. The Reformers, in different instances, became often short from following Bible-based patterns and the instance you mention is an example of this. However, their 'activism', if so you wish to call it, and ours are two different matters that do not compare.

The thrust of the Reformation was God's. His grace created 'thirst' after righteousness in individuals, while all along caused his works of providence to accompany the advancement of his will in that. Say, the Reformation was not an orchestrated human effort, God was its author. We cannot attribute such happening to man, it is far too large and complex, so activism has to be redefined.
Obviously for centuries men had sought to break with the tyranny of Rome in vain. However, in God’s timing he granted the means of faith to that particular generation, in different localities to bring such event to pass.

Your contention is that the reformation was mainly aimed at the religious world and did not entail in the main the political world. What I am saying is that the reformers saw the church and state as one and the same and therefore in their minds there was no such distinction and therefore political activism was viewed as a legitimate way of advancing the kingdom of God.

You err greatly.
The reformers, like the Romanism from which they emerged, viewed the church and state as one, and that is why every individual born was baptized into the church and seen as part of it.
Why do you suppose that they were so jealous to retain infant baptism? Or come to it the power of the magistrates, who they assumed should always be Christian?

In the late 1970's Don Wildmon began a boycott of convenience store to remove pornagraphic magazines and they did. Now we have corporations flexing their muscle and telling states if they don't approve of perversion , the company will not do business in the state. Well, that sounds all fine but if I was in a state, I'd ask my congressman to eliminate the corporate tax break on target and see how well they'd do. Besides, is going to Target a necessity ? Umm , or is it just a place to spend money.
Our economy grew at .05 gdp this year. That's the absolute worse growth in 40 years, and that's what " the worse economy" looks like, yeah Obama, not. So if retail stores and movie makers want more of the same mess , then just keep doing the same stuff that ain't working. Retail stores you ain't the government , we don't need your plastic Chinese flip flops in fruity colors,

He was no pietist ...

2. Pietism is liberalism in my book, its PC, everytime a Christian speaks up about these evils outside of the incorporated church, they are told to remain quiet. Its simply..... PC

1. Sorry, Penn, you have me lost. Can you tell of whom are you speaking in the above first paragraph?

2. It seems you have an issue about pietism in relation to today's PC agenda. Sorry, if you do not mind, it would be helpful if you could explain what you have in mind as your statements seem disconnected from the topic discussed. Please, forgive this, just trying to help my personal understanding in order to perceive what you wish to convey, or how you link or relate things.
Thank you

Pennelope, are you talking about, Calvin? He certainly set some bad examples in Geneva. Some actions he even felt bad about.
John MacArthur wrote:
Many think this is a political problem that will not be solved without a political strategy. During the past twenty-five years, well-meaning Christians have founded a number of evangelical activist organizations and sunk millions of dollars into them in an effort to use the apparatus of politics—lobbying, legislation, demonstration, and boycott—to counteract the moral decline of American culture. They pour their energy and other resources into efforts to drum up a “Christian” political movement that will fight back against the prevailing anti-Christian culture.

But is that a proper perspective? I believe not. America’s moral decline is a spiritual problem, not a political one, and its solution is the gospel, not partisan politics.

But, I have been unhappy with several policies of Target and some before the bathroom stink, such as banning the Salvation Army bell ringers. -- next time take your business to Shopko

McC, yes, they were motivated by their walk with Christ and the purity of the scriptures. They used scripture to defend doctrines of salvation that is based on faith not indulgances.

But shall we live in the past? today's doctrinal issues go even further back to Genesis 1:1 and Romans 1,2, natural law as opposed to evolution and that state is god. (collective power)

Yes, there are just as profound theological issues and antiChrists today, per 1 John.

Pietism is liberalism in my book, its PC, everytime a Christian speaks up about these evils outside of the incorporated church, they are told to remain quiet. Its simply..... PC.

While I see what youre saying SC, if we boycotted all stores with filthy magazines, I don't know where we would get food since I have never been to a grocery store that didn't have any. Unfortunately some things are just impossible to avoid in this sick society.

If Christians had been quicker to boycott businesses for their inappropriate magazines lining the check out counters,we probably wouldn't now be dealing with this issue.

Target has voiced its support of the sodomite agenda for some time now. Christians should have already been boycotting them already. I've only been to Target twice in my life and didn't see what's so special about it, so not shopping there is easy for me.
