Target is a major American retailer that beginning in 2015 generated nationwide controversy for its support of LGBT and other related causes. Even while many people became angry with the store chain’s leadership and have since refused to do business with them and the store chain has suffered declining sales, it has further entrenched itself with its latest campaign, saying that not only does it only support the LGBT as per corporate policy, but now it is going to donate 50% off the sales of select items to LGBT causes as part of a month-long campaign ‘honoring gay pride’:
Target stores are promoting a gay pride line of products dubbed “Take Pride” despite facing huge losses from a boycott against the company’s transgender bathroom policy.
The retailer is merchandising the gay agenda for the second year in a row, with rainbow-adorned shirts, pants, shorts, swim trunks, iPhone cases, and other items honoring Gay “Pride Month” in June.
The gay-affirming merchandise is accompanied by a promotional flyer with the promise: “For each PRIDE item sold, Target will donate 50 percent of the purchase price to GLSEN (the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network).”
When Target began its “Take Pride” line of merchandise, the company issued a statement:
“We’re making our message loud and clear: Target proudly stands with the LGBT community … through all that we do,” Laysha Ward, Target’s executive vice president and chief corporate responsibility officer, boasted. She cited gay demonstration “volunteer efforts” and “partnerships” with homosexual groups such as the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network “to the very products we carry in our stores and online.”
Target’s “Take Pride” promotional campaign follows a controversial transgender bathroom policy allowing men to use women’s restrooms, changing rooms, intimate facilities, and vice versa. The corporate giant also eliminated all gender references in its toy and bedding departments, taking down “boys” and “girls” signs to support gender fluidity.
In 2015, Target signed a “friend of the court” supporting homosexual “marriage.” Their commercial for a “Made to Matter” line of products featured two gay men painting with a child.
The homosexual-affirming policies resulted in a massive boycott (#BoycottTarget, #FlushTarget) of the retailer by an estimated 1.5 million customers and declining Target stock value.
The transgender bathroom policy also resulted in complaints of sex offenses in Target changing rooms and bathrooms in California, Idaho, New Hampshire, Oregon, Texas, Washington state, and Ontario.
The American Family Association (AFA) noted that dramatically declining sales and stock value forced Target to cancel expansion plans, fire five top executives, and cut CEO Brian Cornell’s salary by one-third. (source)
You might read the title of this article and say that it is exaggeration to say that Target is promoting the spread of disease, self-mutilation, and pedophilia, and it is true they did not EXPLICITLY, WORD FOR WORD use those terms. However, to approach this story with a fixation on literal words is to miss the entire point.
We at Shoebat.com have the proud distinction of being nominated as one of the most decidedly anti-homosexuality websites on the Internet (source). We hold this label with pride because our views on homosexuality are not our own- we did not create them, but we simply regurgitate- often times word for word- the Catholic teachings on homosexuality that have been echoed throughout the ages but are simply not spoken of today for fear of social repercussions from the aptly named “gay mafia.”
God makes very clear that homosexuality is a grave sin because He has divinely revealed it and shown through His created that it is a disordered act against the nature of creation. In fact, the sin is so serious that it is only one of four sins explicitly defined by the Catholic Church as sins which “cry out to Heaven for vengeance” (the other three being willful murder, the oppression of the poor and the widow, and the deprivation of a laborer of his justly earned wages). Both the Old Testament and the New Testament speak of homosexuality as a sin that is worthy of death and that as a result of the horrible thing it is will precipitate a flood of other and progressively more heinous sins to follow including not just Islam but also cannibalism, human sacrifice, and occultism. As we wrote last year:
In the war between good and evil, homosexuality is the central aspect of the side of the diabolical. Its not “just another sin,” it is an innate part of the nature of evil and despotism. When you look at how ISIS, for example, kills people, by slicing off their necks, burning them alive in cages, strapping onto people and then blowing them up to pieces, it is most conspicuous that they are a deviant people through and through. They kill just like the many sodomite serial killers have done. There is no doubt that if the sodomites in America had the power, they would not hesitate to conduct a genocide of Christians. The pagan Roman Empire was dominated by homosexuality, and it tried to exterminate all Christians; the Persian Zoroastrian empire was filled with sodomites and it too tried to destroy Christianity; the Ottoman Empire was extremely homosexual and it too committed genocide against Christians. In a letter written by the Byzantine Emperor Alexius Comnenus to Robert, count of Flanders, the Emperor describes how the Muslims savagely and ceaselessly raped Christian women, and that after some time, grew tired of women and turned on Christian men, sodomizing them by force.

Stefano Brizzi, a homosexual who committed murder and after doing the act ate his victim. There are many stories like this we have reported on. Unfortunately, they are not uncommon.
The unspoken fact about homosexuality is that while homosexuals claim they are “discriminated” against, there is a disproportionate about of heinously violent crime that comes out of their disproportionately small community in any population, such as the uncomfortable fact among many other that almost 70% of all serial murderers are homosexuals:
In the case of the LGBTQ community, the 800-pound gorilla in the room is the correlation between sexual orientation and violence.
According to the Serial Killer Database maintained by Radford University, 52% of U.S. serial killers are white, and 92% are male.
However, in a dated study conducted in 2003, 69% of serial killers were either self-described homosexuals or engaged in homosexual behavior “immediately, prior to, during or after committing their murders.”
In verifying and updating this number, a random sampling of 59 U.S. serial killers after 1960 was collected and studied. Of those 59 convicted murderers, 39 were found to be gay, 66%.
Given that arguably 3.8% of the population of the United States self-identifies as gay, the statistical outlier of 60%+ of convicted serial killers being homosexual should be cause for concern within the LGBTQ community.
While some would argue the numbers are too small for scientific analysis, laws have been enacted on far less evidence, such as with the reaction to Matthew Shepard’s murder.
Rather than address this issue with a significant study, the LGBTQ community instead continues to push hate crime statistics of crimes against gays, lesbians and transgenders.
But a solution to minimize those assaults may be right under their nose as a recent report by a gay British group showed that 30% of hate crimes on gays were between victims and aggressors who were “previously acquainted.”
While the U.S. government tracks hate crime statistics along with their general crime database, they fail to gather and release data that could verify and lead to resolution of what appears to be a significant cultural issue within the LGBTQ community. (source)
When people speak about the Catholic Church and “pedophile priests,” the term is actually in accurate, because as it came out in the John Jay study, 81% of all the person molested by priests – who are all male- were boys and teenagers:
The largest group of alleged victims (50.9%) was between the ages of 11 and 14, 27.3% wer e 15-17, 16% were 8-10 and nearly 6% were under age 7. Overall, 81% of victims wer e male and 19% female. Male victims tended to be older than female victims. Over 40% of all victims wer e males between the ages of 11 and 14. (source)
There are pedophile priests, but there are pedophiles in all groups. What the data from the John Jay Study clearly demonstrates is that there isn’t a “pedophile problem” in the Catholic Church, but rather a homosexual problem.
It’s not just Catholic priests. It’s the homosexuality.
But it is not just the Catholic Church. It is the entire world, for wherever homosexuality goes pedophilia follows:
“Overwhelming evidence supports the belief that homosexuality is a sexual deviancy often accompanied by disorders that have dire consequences for our culture,” wrote Steve Baldwin in, “Child Molestation and the Homosexual Movement,” soon to be published by the Regent University Law Review.
Baldwin is the executive director of the Council for National Policy in Washington, D.C.
“It is difficult to convey the dark side of the homosexual culture without appearing harsh,” wrote Baldwin. “However, it is time to acknowledge that homosexual behavior threatens the foundation of Western civilization – the nuclear family.” (source)
Kaposi’s Sarcoma on the mouth, a sign of HIV/AIDS
Disease is another scourge that is not discussed at all among the homosexuals. Just looking at the data for HIV/AIDS alone, the CDC states that homosexuals have disproportinately high rates of the disease as well as being vectors of that disease than any other group in the population. In fact, the problem is so widespread that white have a 10% change, Hispanics a 25% change, and Blacks as 50% chance of contracting the disease:
Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men made up an estimated 2% of the population but 55% of people living with HIV in the United States in 2013. If current diagnosis rates continue, 1 in 6 gay and bisexual men will be diagnosed with HIV in their lifetime, including 1 in 2 black/African American gay and bisexual men, 1 in 4 Hispanic/Latino gay and bisexual men, and 1 in 11 white gay and bisexual men. (source)
Again, this is JUST for HIV/AIDS, not the many other STDs that are regularly transmitted. Nor am I even getting into the numerous psychological disorders that plague homosexuals in this country and worldwide.
Then there is the aspect of self-mutilation. Again, as we have noted and basic science says, gender is genetic. It cannot be separated from the biology which constitutes every cell in a man’s body because every chromosome will reflect either an XX or XY. All that a man can do is to mutilate himself and pretend that he is something he is not because he cannot remake his biology. It is like a man dressing up and pretending he is a cat- you can act like one but your own biology testifies against you.
Cutting your penis off, attaching a fake vagina and getting breast implants does not make you a woman. It makes you a man with no penis and surgically implanted breasts and fake vagina.
So no, they are not literally saying ‘we support murderers, pedophiles, disease, and self mutilation,’ but the fact is that homosexuality is an unnatural act whose consistent fruits are murder, pedophilia, disease, and self mutilation. By the support they are giving to this cause they are enabling the following acts to happen. It is no different than with a person who says that he is “against terrorism” but then proceeds to support the construction of mega mosques in small communities- yes, he is not saying “I support terrorism” but his actions are facilitating terrorism to take place.
Now in any society it is not possible to absolutely avoid all businesses and products connected to sinful activity. Indeed, businesses are not “moral” in the sense of Christian morality, and in a society that is accepting paganism one cannot expect much. In a situation like this, instead of focusing on particulars, it is easier to focus on major targets promoting flamboyant, egregious sinful behavior, and to avoid them. Indeed, they cannot exist without your dollars.
