  • Is there anyplace left for Christians to shop?

    11/24/2015 5:23:19 PM PST · by Extremely Extreme Extremist · 32 replies
    Well, it’s that time again – time to get out the Christmas list and start hitting the stores. The problem is – what stores? For any Christian who wants to spend hard-earned dollars with family-friendly, Christian-affirming retailers, restaurants and service providers, the list is growing shorter all the time. I stopped shopping at Macy’s in 2011 after learning about the retailer’s grossly unjust policy against women. Macy’s management said “yes” to a transsexual young man’s demand to change in the women’s dressing room and rejected a Christian employee’s attempt to block his inappropriate access, even firing her because of her...

    Israel's prime minister is accusing a German department store of a "boycott" after it removed products made in Israeli settlements under new European Union labeling guidelines. Benjamin Netanyahu noted Sunday that Berlin's KaDeWe department store was once owned by Jews before the Nazis seized it. He says its decision to label products from Israeli communities and remove them from its shelves is "a boycott in every respect." ...

    ....The newest ad for Barbie’s Moschino doll line features a new figure for the first time ever — a boy. “Moschino Barbie is so fierce!” the boy yells before placing a designer purse on the doll’s arm. The ad features him and two girls touting Mattel’s already popular line that includes clothes and accessories from the fashion designer Moschino. The ad, released earlier this month, is the latest in a series of steps to remove gender from toy shopping.

    US President Barack Obama's administration on Thursday voiced its approval of the discriminatory EU decision the day before to label Jewish goods from Judea, Samaria, eastern Jerusalem and the Golan Heights. The administration said the move is only a "technical guideline," and is not a boycott, reports Associated Press - despite the obvious assumption that consumers would follow the labeling when choosing what products to buy. US State Department spokesperson Mark Toner said, "we do not believe that labeling the origin of products is equivalent to a boycott. And as you know, we do not consider settlements to be part...

The billionaire businessman and leading Republican candidate tweets that Fox News has been treating him "very unfairly" and that he's going to stop appearing on its shows. But a Fox News spokeswoman says that Trump only announced his boycott after the channel canceled a scheduled Trump appearance on "The O'Reilly Factor" Thursday.

    Heinz tomato ketchup is a household name around the world, including in Israel. But now, thanks to a court ruling, that's about to change... sort of. Osem, Israel's leading food brand and top producer of ketchup, has succeeded in its bid to knock out its lead rival, by banning it from being called "ketchup." In its petition to the courts back in January of this year, Osem claimed Heinz's product did not have enough tomato content to be called "ketchup." Now, after a long legal battle, the court has ruled in Osem's favor, and Heinz will henceforth be known as...

Among other things, Trump accused Mexico of sending its "rapists" and drug dealers to the US. In addition to blasting Macy's in an official statement, Trump attacked Macy's in a series of tweets for being "weak on border security" Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/trump-boycott-macys-2015-7#ixzz3ergFOT2w

I created a petition on change.org to call for them to remove all material related to Che Guevara, the Cuban Communist activist/terrorist. I personally don't care for the Confederate flag, but as a conservative, I don't think it's my place to decide what people fly in their yards, or wherever they want. That's not the American way. So if we are going to ban the Confederate flag, we should ban works that are far more destructive, like T-shirts and posters glorifying...

Exactly 379 corporations and employer organizations urged the Supreme Court to strike down state bans on gay marriage, according to a friend-of-the-court brief obtained by The Huffington Post. The document was expected to be filed late Thursday morning. Employers are better served by a uniform marriage rule that gives equal dignity to employee relationships, reads the brief, filed by global law firm Morgan Lewis. Allowing same-sex couples to marry improves employee morale and productivity, reduces uncertainty, and removes the wasteful administrative burdens imposed by the current disparity of state law...

    Ordinarily I wouldn’t concern myself with what some billionaire far-left oligarch thinks. Usually, they don’t think about much beyond making money and having millions of people they neither know or respect suck up to them. Apple’s Steve Jobs made a career of this type of self-important asshattery. His successor, Tim Cook is no different. Weighing in on the Indiana RFRA law signed by Governor Mike Pence last week, Cook has demonstrated he is not only has distinctly fascistic tendencies (part of the whole billionaire far-left oligarch thing) and scarcely as passing knowledge of the US Constitution and the issue at...

    Germany has rejected a definition of anti-Semitism that labels the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS) as anti-Semitic. Responding to a legislative questionnaire released Thursday by leading Green Party MP Volker Beck, the Merkel administration wrote that there does not exist a general academic definition of anti-Semitism. Beck, who heads the German- Israel parliamentary group in the Bundestag, sharply criticized the Merkel administration: Here the federal government has cowered, he said. There is no doubt of the anti-Semitic motivation within the spectrum of the BDS campaign. BDS aims essentially against Jewish Israelis and is therefore anti-Semitic. Whoever aggressively boycotts Israeli...

    Britains School of Oriental and African Studies joins the Jew-hatred parade. Last week, in yet another familiarly tiresome portrayal of anti-Semitism parading itself as Palestinian solidarity, students and staff at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) voted to initiate a boycott against all Israeli academic institutions. The vote at one of the United Kingdoms top universities was conducted over the course of a week, and after the announcement late Friday afternoon, partying broke out on the central London campusalong with a request for university authorities to cut their ties to Jerusalems Hebrew University. Unsurprisingly, the vote was part...

    More than a dozen congressional Democrats say they plan to skip Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahus speech to a joint session of Congress amid conflicting signals over whether he will pull out from the March 3 address. Netanyahu struck a defiant tone during a campaign event in Israel on Monday, saying he was determined to present the case for why Israel opposed the ongoing nuclear negotiations with Iran before the members of Congress and the American people. This is not a political issue or a party issue, neither here nor there. This is an existential issue, and I approach it...
