I have a friend who is gay and a guy. He is having trouble with coming out as a non-christian to his parents. It took him forever to come out that he was gay. I knew when he was in 4th grade. I told him about this "Atheist Nexus". Is there a way to give him a more formal invite?

Dear Mike,
That's another impediment to social progress.
It was hippie flower children (like me in the late 60's) that helped break down cultural and uptight behavioral norms and helped make America a better place. Gay Liberation of the early 70's owed a debt to the hippie flower child movement.
The LGBT establishment movement of today has tried to ignore that early movement for free expression and personal choice. "Dirty Hippie" is a prejudiced pejorative that you should avoid. Every generation has had it's bohemians who have pushed the boundaries of cultural freedom. Be thankful for the generations of change artists who came before you.

Hey Mike,
Being anti corporate rule is nothing to be embarrassed about.
One of the things that holds back progress in the US States is the fear of being identified with socialism or anarchism. You have nothing to apologize for in that regard. Besides a free nation of independent shop keepers is not the same as a nation under corporate tyranny.

Understood. Nothing is black & white, and there are many shades of grey.

I have a Target store only about 3 blocks from home. But i went to a Sears/KMart and found shirts on sale for $14.00 . But I don't think I like the politics of KMart either. And Wallmart is the worst of the big box stores. -- Gary

Geraldo, Im sure you are right about the minimum wage issue. Actually, that should broaden any issues regarding boycott, why would anyone who beleives in a living wage want to buy at Target now? I disagree with you about the importance issue but that is just quibbling. My biggest problem is corportions now able to buy politicians even more easily than before - and it was never that difficult anyway. Frankly, my image of Target is down the toilet now, but for hundreds of millions of americans, Target is still the place to go for mid-level prices, and they just don't care about either issue. Boycott probably wont affect them (or Best Buy) but I am still staying away from both places now.

My comment about Target contributing to a candidate who advocates doing away with the minimum wage. I heard about it at a Green Party meeting from a community activist. So I don't know how true it is. Someone should check it out. Frankly, I think the labor issue is more important than "gay marriage" and Lt. Dan Choi's emotional attachment to militarism. -- Gary

"Chief Executive Officer Gregg Steinhafel said the contribution was based solely on MN Forward's advocacy for jobs and economic growth."

Geez, greedy bastards!

I think this hasn't been mentioned. For all the focus on Target's gift to a homophobe, what hasn't been much discussed is that the recipient was advocating for the elimination of the minimum wage. That is probably the motivation of Target's "pro business" campaign contribution.

Annne Coulter dumped by conservative group due to involvement in homocon. Is the conservative about to become the LGBTQ's BFF?
