Target Funds Rabid Anti-Gay Politics

For Your Reading // Learn Something // News

Here’s how it works – Target has given hundreds of thousands of dollars to Tom Emmer’s PAC, a very anti-gay MN politician running for Governor. Emmer is a good friend of Bradlee Dean, the front man for Christian Rock group You Can Run But You Cannot Hide which has appeared as various GOP events and who he has referred to as “nice people”. While Emmer is anti-gay, his friendship with Dean gives us an idea of how anti-gay. Bradlee Dean literally wants to kill homosexuals and has said things like:

“[Homosexuals] play the victim when they are, in fact, the predator. On average, they molest 117 people before they’re found out. How many kids have been destroyed, how many adults have been destroyed because of crimes against nature?”

And don’t forget the classic:

“Muslims are calling for the executions of homosexuals in America. This just shows you they themselves are upholding the laws that are even in the Bible of the Judeo-Christian God, but they seem to be more moral than even the American Christians do, because these people are livid about enforcing their laws. They know homosexuality is an abomination”

If you’re wondering, boycotts of Target are being organized and you can see the original articles here:
