Target does not seem to be the least bit concerned. They have chosen to be inclusive, which most people appreciate. Target has rejected the insane rants and of these conservatives and christian extremists. It must be very frightening for these fanatics to know their world of hate and bigotry is falling apart. Out of the 500,000 people who supposedly signed this petition, how many will actually go through with it? A fraction. Don’t forget this petition was started by a known and recognized hate group, the American Family Association. Not their first unsuccessful attack on Target, btw. To them, this has nothing to do with bathrooms, but it can be used to further their KKK like stance on gays. No matter how vile the AFA is, one has to feel pity for them and their ilk. Their insidious way of thinking is followed by a tiny minority. They are marginalized to the fringes of American society, so they lash out attempting to be relevent.
Oh no not those extremists that support centuries old societal norms at the expense of .001% of the population feeling uncomfortable in some places... what crazies they must be. fyi it is your position that is of the tiny minority, not the other 300 million people.

So the home owner was shooting his gun widely as the burglar was running away and not on his property. Be lucky no one else was shot in this 2nd amendment freedom demonstration. If the guy is running away, then it’s up to the cops catch him. He’s not a threat if he’s running away and shooting him was a crime. The home owner may lose the civil case, especially considering he was found guilty in a criminal judgement. This is part of the right-wing gun culture which is so popular to talk about. Internet tough guys, many on the blaze, consistently talk about their “right” to shoot someone. Here is real evidence of why you don’t have such a right to randomly shoot a person running away and when you are not in eminent danger.
Indiana castle doctrine is absolutely on the home owners side on this one.
What a surprise that you’re defending the burglar over the home owner.
What if he is running away with my elderly mother's respirator?

Everyone has heard of the attempted boycott of Target by now. It started with the known and recognized hate group, the American Family Association and its subsidiary One Million moms. Here is an interesting fact for those boycotters. They are running out of places to shop. There are 400 companies given a 100% LGBT support rating by the Human Rights Campaign. Here are just a few. Facebook, Twitter, Google, Apple, McDonalds, Coca-Cola, Budweiser, Walgreens and CVS, American Airlines, Southwest, JetBlue, Alaska Airlines, Boeing, Ford, GM, Toyota, Nissan, Volkswagen, Nike, Chase, Bank of America, Citi, Wells Fargo, Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, Ikea, Home Depot, JCPenny, Sears, Nordstrom, Target, General Mills, Kellogg, Kraft and Kroger.
Are the bigots boycotting these companies also? The world is closing in around you.

Some may consider it in poor taste, but it’s not sickening. If you don’t like it, don’t look at it. Im sure jesus will be ok with it.
Of course that is your liberal logic, tell a conservative to look the other way if they don’t like it. But when something or basically everything that offends a Liberal Prog you have to retreat to a safe space and shut down campus. These ******* that degrade my Lord and Savior which is the true religion of peace sure don’t make any attempt to draw Mohammad the Goat Humper! I hope Jesus has a sense of humor when he comes back, or it is going to be pretty crowded in Hell!
Vaman - Are you sure?

This guy is simple and unintimidating. Humorously, wait for a transgendered person to beat him in to a coma when he becomes a “tough guy”. I suspect he’s all mouth and no action.

As with so many things, christian extremists have no actual evidence or facts to support their backward opinions. They are forced to use a book of myths cobbled together in the Bronze age by nomadic goat herders as supporting documentation. This is precisely why they lose court cases and public opinion on a regular basis.

Christian radicals will learn they cannot use their religion as cover for their personal hatreds and bigotry. The magical man in the sky is no excuse for prejudice and backward thinking. This, of course, plays in to the boo-hoo christian persecution narrative, which does not exist. So stop using it as an additional excuse.
gay radicals sure can as the case in CO where a gay refused to make a christian a cake because they were offended by what they wanted showed
Secular progressives like you do not get to determine what does and does not violate someone else's religious beliefs. In this particular case, the baker was CLEARLY not discriminating against the couple because they were gay; he offered to sell them any other confection they wanted, but he simply declined to participate in (and in doing so, condone) a same-sex wedding ceremony, as it violates his beliefs.
Let me test your consistency on this matter, vaman: Would you support forcing a gay baker to make a cake for the Westboro Baptist Church (they of the "God hates fags" infamy)? If you wouldn't support that, then you can't support forcing this man to violate his beliefs.
The original reason that European settlers came here was to avoid being persecuted for their religious beliefs, and it is for that same reason that religion is the first clause of the First Amendment to the Constitution. Religious liberty is the root of all other liberties. Without it, none of the others has meaning.
Have you read and studied the Bible?
The only "backwards thinking" I see is from you. You want to go back to a time when the government wants to impose its personal [im]morality on the populace and punish those that are not in compliance.
You way of thinking will lead to the type of government that starts imprisoning (if not outright executing) people for having "dangerous thoughts" that are not approved by the ones in power. Don't think it can happen here? People like you have already tried to destroy the lives of folks that don't want to participate in a gay wedding. It's only a small step forward from there to gulags and political prisoners.

This isn’t much of a story. Hannity has butt kissing interviews with Trump almost weekly.
The reason is trump is winning by votes!!
Cruz is losing
 April 26, 2016 at 8:39am
Cruz will be out of the race soon, so what was the point of announcing anything other than his failed campaign.

This story sounds suspect, but if it is true the employee is clearly wrong. The company will have to decide how to handle this and if it does employee people who turn away customers at a for profit business for no other reason than sexuality, then the employee should be fired.

That poor guy. He has fallen for a right-wing conspiracy myth, based in zero facts or evidence.
Hey, what do you spend your spare time and money on?
While you just whine and complain about Christians.
By what standards are you calling him crazy? For trying to reenact a historical Biblical event? By the way, whether you believe the Bible or not, many civilizations throughout the world believe there was once a universal flood. I think what scares many atheists is that he will prove that the Biblical account of how Noah and his family survived IS possible.

How did all those dinosaurs fit on that tiny boat?
There probably weren't as many as you might think (not as many species at the time, only land based dinosaurs, etc.). Plus they likely would have been very young and would have taken up less space.
One of each kind was on the ark. After the flood, habitat conditions and micro-evolution would break them into different species.
So there were most likely no more than two dinosaurs.
They missed the deadline, hence why they are no longer here, Duh!
Why don't get a life and stop being such a douchebag.
They took babies..
The dinosaurs were actually Transformers, so it all worked out.
They were not invited on the boat, that is how they became extinct.
Didn't you see the greeting card that explained it all? Two Dinos, standing on a mountain as water rises around them watch as an ark floats away in the distance. One says to its mate, "Crap! Was that today?"

radicalized christian hate groups who organize these boycotts never learn. They don’t work. These groups are always boycotting something or someone and nothing comes of it. Target loves the free publicity though and the normal customer understands the store is only trying to be welcoming to all the people who enter. Now, if you are a paranoid, easily-frightened, conspiracy believer with a bunker, bible and AR, then this boycott makes perfect sense. Continue your boycott and wait for the results. Sadly you will be disappointed.
Yes, and I love the free publicity also. It lets me know which stores to avoid to keep my wife and daughters safe from perverts who will, and already have, (see below) take advantage of this ruined world and its incredulous stupidity.
By the way, if you think this idiocy isn’t dangerous, it’s happened again:
Man Uses Women’s Restroom, Snaps Pictures of 10-Year-Old Girl
And another one:
I have been disappointed before. That doesn't mean I should not try to do whatever I think is right.
I am not sure what I will do. I will probably boycott and let them know that they are loosing a customer over this. I think that there must be a way to do it that is respectful and non-confrontational, but firm. I will think about it for a little bit.
"Sadly you will be disappointed"
No they won't. They'll just think they weren't conservative enough.
Self-awareness is in short supply with this crowd.
Hey...if boycotts don't work. Then why do Liberals do them? - Funny when Liberals cut down their own practices. And think people don't notice.

Cruz had no choice but to use the same generic rhetoric of the GOP. If he answered honestly, he would once again prove he is nothing more than a radicalized christian bigot and hate monger. The Cruz way of thinking is gone in this country. A minority of fellow christian extremists hold his views. But America can thank Cruz for our next President, Madam President. He is so universally hated, if he is the GOP nominee, Clinton is a guaranteed winner.
You are a good candidate for the island mentioned above.
Clinton has never been a winner (except wit those creepy New Yorkers). Rich girl from Shorewood ugly as a dog with a Daddy who can pay for her dates.

Another seconded amendment freedom demonstration. Firefighters are just part of the socialist government and were only attempting to break in like storm troopers! Pure evil doers.

The Reason Rally will not appeal to many Blazers. It will not consist of bible thumping, bigotry, fear, prejudice and rebel flags. Intellectual, educated people who are not controlled by fairytales will be in attendance. They frighten christians the most.
Like those loser nerds who think they know it all but they know nothing, which describes atheists.
 April 15, 2016 at 1:56pm
100% chance the attendance is not 1 million. This past weekend, April 9th, another christian radical had a gathering on the mall where 30,000 were expected. 100-300 attended. Total failure. This new attempt of “yay jesus” will no doubt be an equal failure.
