Target tells shoppers it's going 'gay'
World News Daily, | August 8, 2014
Another major American company has gone “gay,” with Target officially signing onto a court action seeking to strike down the definition of marriage as one man and one woman.
Jodee Kozlak, a human resources officer, said in a statement Target joined several other national companies to sign on to a friend-of-the-court brief in support of “marriage equality.” The case is pending in the Seventh Circuit.
“As our leadership team discussed signing on, we took time to consider the bigger questions at hand. This brief is important, as the issues it addresses have significant impact on businesses. But it is more than that, and we agreed that now is the right time to more directly share our views on this issue.
“It is our belief that everyone should be treated equally under the law, and that includes rights we believe individuals should have related to marriage,” she wrote.
The flood of comments that followed showed deep division over the company’s new political and religious position.
