Florida Family Association Boycotts Target For Not Hating Homosexuals Enough
|David Canton gets crazy ideas when he sees gay teens on Degrassi kiss.|
The Trevor Project PSA aired during an episode in which the school's star quarterback looks into a "cure" for his homosexuality before deciding to accept his orientation. Oddly, the episode originally aired in 2009, but the FFA didn't take action until last Friday.
"Degrassi is one of the most shameful shows on television because of the inappropriate content that intentionally targets our youth," writes the FFA.
But why call for a boycott on Target and not, say, TeenNick?
"Target is the only major retail chain that is advertising during this shameful show," says the release.
Oddly, you may remember last year gay activists threatened to boycott Target because it made donations to anti-gay politicians.
But lets get this straight. David Canton think would rather people not shop at Target then prevent suicide? For a morality group, that sure doesn't sound too moral.
