Support Walgreens and then tell Target why

You know, all of these anti-gay "family" groups need to get laid REALLY BAD!!! Seriously, if you're having more sex, you don't give a rat's ass about what other people do!

It seems the Illinois Family Institute is in a tiz over the Gay Games being held not only in Chicago but also being openly supported by MAJOR corporations. Kraft was the last to get the boycott threat, now it's Walgreens. According to the Walgreens spokesperson:

Spokesman Michael Polzin told the Tribune that the company is taking part in the games to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS. The company's pharmacists have been serving HIV-positive patients since the early 1980s. "Each year, we raise millions of dollars in our stores for research education and building awareness for heart disease, diabetes and cancer," he told the newspaper. "This is one way of giving back to the community."

That's in stark contrast to Target who recently had a pharmacist refuse to fill her emergency contraception:

A 26-year-old Missouri woman was refused EC when she handed her prescription to a pharmacist at a Target store in Fenton, MO, on September 30. The woman was told by the pharmacist, “I won’t fill it. It’s my right not to fill it.” She was told that she could go to a local Walgreens instead.

So fine, if that's the way Target wants it, that we go to Walgreens to get treated equally and fairly, then let's do it!!!!

The link above provides a means to communicate with Target and tell them you are outraged! You don't have to be a woman to be outraged. The VERY IDEA that someone can take a job that serves the public yet refuse to serve ALL of the public because of personal beliefs is OUTRAGEOUS!!!

Being a pharmacist, doctor, dentist, etc. isn't like being in the ministry. There is no RIGHT to pick and choose. If they want to enforce their beliefs through their job then become a missionary.

Where will this stop if we don't stop it now? Will these "family" groups decide that roads shouldn't be repaved, schools provided minimal funds, or appropriate police protection and response in gay-dominated neighborhoods just because they don't like it?

Simply OUTRAGEOUS!!! Make Target a target. Contact them today.

Well, since you brought it up, I get laid about 5 times a week. How is that relevant to the discussion?

Ugh, TMI! Why do you heterosexuals always have to flaunt your sexuality in everyone's face? And you people talk about us!
