Queerty explores whether Target just proved that the HRC Equality Index is worthless as buying guide.
I have not joined the Target boycott. I'm still thinking about it. Am I to then shop at Wal-Mart, which has a worse record and all sorts of other things that bother me (but I still shop there on occassion)? Target has much that I do value, including good policies for how they treat LGBT employees.
In a world of sin every institution participates in evil. We all do. There is no way to exempt ourselves from it. That is why we stand in need of grace.
I've joined plenty of boycotts, especially when the act is egregious and I am free to make other choices. But sometimes we aren't free. And Christian theology teaches us that.
