When Morals collide...who's right?
February 9, 2012 at 10:38 AM

Are you familiar with the group One Million Moms? The bill themselves as guardians of the family friendly, and have successfully had advertising pulled from shows such as Glee, The Shield, and FX programming.

It appears their group is slightly smaller than a million, averaging about 50,000 members.

Their latest target is JCPenney: Penney's recently partnered with Ellen Degeneres as their newest spokesperson as part of a brand change initiative. Ellen is notoriously big hearted and has given away stacks of cash to families in need throughout the recession. 

One million moms says she doesn't "stand for the majority" of Penney's shoppers and wants her fired, because she's lesbian.

I get that they want the family friendly maintained, but I think that they're trying to foist their morals on to others. Why have advertising pulled from shows you aren't even watching if you don't want to police what the rest of the world is? Or are they watching the shows, "just for the advertising" to find out who offends them?

Penney's turned them down, by the way, so their latest tactic is harrassing the store managers. 

Thoughts?

    No toy didn't. She said NOTHING about the Bible. She didn't even bring it into the conversation. YOU did.

    Quoting Kelly913:

    Sisterpeach asked a question.  I provided an answer, that's not hijacking. 

    Quoting JoiseyGirl_78:

    Im not hijacking anything, you did when you said the bible is always right. You brought the Bible into this, I didn't. I am just explaining to you, the Bible is NOT ALWAYS RIGHT. Do you eat bacon? Do you believe in killing your kids for cursing you or raising a hand to you? You can't really pick and chose, unless you believe that some of the Bible is wrong, and if you do believe that, who are you to say which parts are right and which parts are wrong?

    Quoting Kelly913:

    My response to this would hijack the post, taking it away from the original intent of the post creator.  If you'd like to know my thoughts, PM me.

    Quoting JoiseyGirl_78:

    Unless Ellen is yanking down her pants and saying girls lick this, I dont see how it isn't family friendly entertainment. Ellen is not a bad person. The Bible also says, KELLY913 - TO KILL YOUR CHILDREN WHEN THEY CURSE YOU. The bible is NOT ALWAYS RIGHT. Period. God created us in his image. I believe that, do you? We evolve. Therefore, God evolves. The Bible is VERY outdated. It has some good ideas. But things like eating pork, killing your kids if they raise a hand to you, etc, are VERY WRONG and OLD FASHIONED. If we evolve, God evolves too, because we are made IN HIS IMAGE. God loves his children unconditionally. Sometimes they are punished, but not for loving someone else who just happens to be of the "same sex". I think damnation and hell are reserved for people like men who beat the living shit out of their wives, women and men who molest small children, Hitler, etc.

    I can find a concordance with 31 versions of the Christian bible. I meant 'which sect's bible?'

    Quoting Kelly913:

    God's Bible. 

    Quoting LindaClement:

    Whose bible?

    Quoting Kelly913:

    To answer the question in your title-the Bible has always been right.

    I see nothing about the Bible in the original post. With that being said, I DECIDE

    what morals I will decide what morals I want to teach my children, what companies we will support with our patronage, and what my family will watch, not a group of women I don't know from Adam and Eve.

    I had never heard of this group until this episode with JC Penney and Ellen, I am kind of offended, who do they think they are, did you ask them to speak for you because I sure did not ask them to judge what is offensive or not family friendly for my home.

    Ok, here are my beliefs on what you just said.  First of all, alot of what you said (such as eating pork, is in the Old Testament of the Bible.  This is before Jesus came and died on the cross.  This is when the Law was in effect.  Once Jesus came and died on the cross (spilled his blood) and rose on the 3rd day, the Law became null and void. 

    God never changes, it is us who changes.  It is true that God loves his children, but he will punish us also.  The Bible is very clear in Galations 5: 19-21 of those that will not enter the kindgom of God.  The Bible is also very clear that we as christians are to love everyone.  That does not mean that we agree with them or that we have to accept their sin.  We are to pray for them.  I am against homosexuality.  I know that the Bible is very clear that it is wrong, however, that does not mean that I hate the person.  I just cannot accept their lifestyle as being right.  Instead of showing hate we tell our children to pray for them.

    Yeah, that's the part that really bothers me. I don't like being censored.
