I could quote statistics and ramble on about tolerance but I don't think we would still see eye to eye. So let me put it in terms you can understand.
Your organization is like a big stinky diaper filled with poop. And it's creating a mess everywhere. It's time for some wipes and a change.
I wasn't even aware of the whole controversy regarding Ellen DeGeneres and J.C. Penny until I was enlightened by Taradharma whose blog Out of The Lotus is one of my all time favs.
For those of you haven't heard, a group called One Million
I'm proud of J.C. Penny for doing the right thing and keeping Ellen. Thank you for refusing to bow to pressure from right wing religious political extremists. They probably don't even shop at your store anyway. How do I know? Because I get my haircut at J.C. Penny every 5 weeks and when tested, they pass with flying colors. Never once have they been willing to give me a "Jack It To Jesus" up-doo, no matter how much I beg or plead. Rock on J.C. Penny.
