Target Stores and the Salvation Army

It appears now that those that have religion are now calling for a boycott of the Target chain.

According to a story in World Net Daily, Target Corporation made the announcement that the bell ringers would no longer be allowed at the company stores nationwide. However the religionists did not care about this until they saw that there were no bell ringers to be found. Now the National Clergy Council which has religious leaders from Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant churches are now calling out Target CEO Bob Ulrich

It appears that if Ulrich does not back down, these religious leaders will call for a boycott of the Target chain.

Rev. Bob Schenck who heads the NCC says the decision made by Target "sends an unmistakable message of hostility toward people and organizations of Christian faith."

For more than 100 years, the Salvation Army has demonstrated itself to be a trustworthy charitable organization, " Schenck said. "Yet now the retail giant, Target Corporation, has publicly questioned the Salvation Army's place in our nation's Christmas traditions."

The Salvation Army will not defend its self but the NCC plans on defending the Salvation Army and will try to convince Target to allow the bell ringers to return.

Other groups that are linked with Christian and social conservative causes are warning that Target would lose money if they did not allow the Salvation Army's bell ringers in front of the story. In fact the America Family Association encouraged its followers to shop at stores like Wal-Mart which do allow the bell ringers in front of the stores.

Robert Knight who works with Concerned Women for American says "For Target to say that the Salvation Army is no longer welcome at the inn should send a message to Christians that perhaps they'd like to do their shopping elsewhere." That statement is a bunch of garbage in my opinion. It is time for a quick lesson on private property.

Target is a private company and as a private company they can allow or disallow certain people from hanging around the stores including bell ringers. Call them Scrooges all you want but they are within their rights to have certain people not being allowed to "trespass" on their property. Sure their is some hatred for people of faith but in this case regarding Target's policy towards the Salvation Army,the religionists are in the wrong. Its not about bashing people of faith. It is about keep people who want to sell and/or promote certain things (including religion) off their property, and saddly that includes the Salvation Army bell ringers.

The Salvation Army will just look for other places in which other stores will allow them to ring their bells. They should continue to do well. The Target chain is just a minor setback.

This comes from the song Jingle Bells. Yes their are other lines in that song. Problem is that too many people repeat that bloody "Dashing though the Snow" verse WAY TOO MUCH!!! Ray Conniff and his singers are the exception and I do enjoy their version because of that.

A face on a lover with a fire in his heart
A man under cover buy you tore him apart
Maybe next year

Last Christmas made famous by George Michael and Wham!!!

Now if you like the Hilary Duff version her line is toned down and sung from a female POV.

A friend to discover with a fire in her heart
A girl under cover but you tore me apart

The Death Toll in Iraq

I try not to link stories regarding the death toll in Iraq. I was try to get the spin from World Net Daily and other related sources first before the mainline media sources.

It should be noted that WND also links to these pages as well. in spite being a mouth piece for the GOP does use stories from the Associated Press as well. WND does have bias toward the right but they try not to be a mouth piece for the GOP in their own news stories.
However in Neal Boortz's program notes (Neal's Nuze) he does list the death toll from the recent world wars. Here they are.

World War II - 408,306
Korean War - 54,246
Vietnam War - 58,219
Operation Iraqi Freedom - 1,251 as of yesterday

So far OIF trails when it comes to the past wars. It shows once again were the old media's loyalties are, and that is with those people who oppose liberty and freedom.

Man it is intresting how these Regressives (they are NOT Progressives) think. However note to you Regressives out their.

"If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may be even a worse fate. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish then to live as slaves."
