One Million Moms are at it again, calling a boycott of Zales

One Million Moms are at it again, calling a boycott of Zales

Referring to them as the “moral panic-enthusiasts” Huffpost’s Hilary Hansen posts about how the conservative group is going ballistic over Zales’ latest 30 TV spot. With all the things to really get upset about in the US right now, The Moms always seem to swallow camels while straining out flies. At the same time, they offer up Chicken Little bombastic sound bites.

“Zales is using public airwaves to subject families to the decay of morals and values, and belittle the sanctity of marriage in an attempt to redefine marriage,”

They appear to have forgotten the US Supreme Court has already redefined civil marriage for this country. That was back on 26 JUN 2015 when the US Supremes declared that love was love.

I agree with David Allen. My wife is Black and I am White. Zales should have pictured couples like us.

So, Zales, where are a couple guys exchanging rings?

Any erosion of the sanctity of or necessity for marriage has nothing to do with a few weddings among the slim homosexual minority and much more to do with the 50% divorce rate and 40% out-of-wedlock birth rate among the overwhelming heterosexual majority — something One Million [sic] Moms never addresses.
