I loves me some wacko conservative religious folk.
Since conservatives launched a boycott of Target last month over the retail giant’s inclusive policyfor transgender customers and employees, they have successfully earned a lot of press for their efforts. Unfortunately, not much of that press has been good; in fact, opponents of transgender equality look as intolerant and paranoid as ever.
One of the main reasons the press has been negative has been the way many individuals have been inspired by the boycott to take their own actions at their local Target. Bible-thumping conservatives have been marching up and down the aisles or occupying the check-out area, candidly shouting their unfiltered rejections of LGBT people.
For example, the so-called “Radical Reverend” Ryan Simpkins entered a Target in Ontario, California this week to proclaim that he now “self identifies” as the new CEO of Target, proceeding to “fire” all the employees. In front of families and children, he condemned the store for “opening the door to pedophiles and sexual predators” and called everyone “sick twisted perverts” who are “going to die and go straight to Hell.”
