MN For Marriage's Comm. guy: Do as I say, not as I shop

by Jeremy Hooper

Earlier this summer, Minnesota For Marriage's deputy comm. guy, Andy Parrish, railed against Target for taking perceived strides against the discriminatory marriage amendment that state voters will weigh in on this November:

"It's wrong for a mega-corporation to take sides in an important social issue that has nothing to do with its business objectives," Parrish wrote in a media release. "In doing so, Target has alienated the strong majority of Minnesotans who support traditional marriage. They also risk alienating the overwhelming majority of their customers in the 32 states in this country that have voted to support traditional marriage."

Wait, Andy—I thought pro-equality Target alienated households like yours. What, is it okay to give money to the company that opposes your employer and cause so long as you use enough coupons to eat away at the profit margin?

I mean, I'm not complaining or anything. Just probably not the mixed message I'd be sending if I wanted to seem bold in the face of corporate decision-making.
