7 Quick Takes Friday (set #198)

7 Quick Takes Friday

This week: The latest issue of New Evangelists Monthly awaits your perusal. Other “takes” this week form a special edition on the continuing outrage at Target. Target used to be one of my favorite stores — clean, family-friendly and reasonable prices. Their CEO, bizarrely, decided to make a hard-left turn to the detriment of his customers’ safety. Please join the 1.3+ MILLION sane people who have signed the boycott pledge.

While Target’s pervert-inclusive policy invites men into women’s restrooms, do not expect much help from store security when you, your wife, your daughter or your mother are attacked.

A 16-year old girl was grabbed and stabbed (repeatedly) by a man in a Target. Their 1 man, untrained “security force” did not get involved. Instead, 3 other men came to the girl’s rescue and literally saved her life. Target sued the heroes. The local ABC affiliate has the story.

Please continue to boycott Target. This once family-friendly store has become anything but. Join over 1.3 MILLION other shoppers, stay away and warn your friends. This radical left activism should have no place in Target’s boardroom if they want to keep your trust and your business.

How many registered sex-offenders live near YOUR local Target? Any guess what their new favorite store is?

Some random thoughts or bits of information are worthy of sharing but don’t warrant their own full post. This idea was begun by Jennifer Fulwiler and is now continued by Kelly Mantoan. So, some Fridays I too participate when I have accumulated 7 worthy items. Thank you Kelly for hosting this project!
