“I have not been inside a Macys since 2011. I used to spend quite a bit of money during the holidays at our local Macys—but no longer. This decision was reinforced as I watched and photographed the huge Macys’ red star balloon flying high above the Columbus ‘gay’ pride parade in both 2013 and 2014. The banner carried by the Macys’ employee group marchers read, ‘Pride and Joy.’ The star at Christmas is a compelling Christian symbol, evoking the story that means a lot to many of us this time of year. The wise men followed the Star of Bethlehem and worshipped before the infant Savior, Jesus Christ, and offered him priceless gifts worthy of the King of Kings. This Christmas season, think about the fitting room at Macys and whether you would feel welcome there. If you are a male, would your wife, daughters or mom be safe and comfortable there? Do you agree that this seems highly odd, that Macys would so cavalierly disregard the preferences of the vast majority of the women who shop there? This seems marginally insane, actually. Can businesses be treated for mental illness?” – Hate group leader Linda Harvey, writing for BarbWire.
