Troubling: One of America's most anti-LGBT orgs claims pro-equality Gap Inc. caved to its demands

by Jeremy Hooper

This isn't LGBT related, but it is always troubling to hear that a prominent VP of a pro-LGBT company is sending personal letters catering to one of the LGBT community's most vicious opponents. I'm talking about the American Family Association, in this case, which is claiming that its five-year "war on Christmas" campaign has led Gap Inc. to cave to its demands. In fact, the American Family Association is calling it an "early Christmas present":

"This week the American Family Association received a personal letter from Bill Chandler, who is the executive vice president for global corporate affairs at GAP Incorporated," states Sharp, "and he is proud to let us know that this year things are different at GAP and Old Navy."

According to that letter, evidence of the turnaround will be seen in Christmas themes and signs in GAP's stores and "Christmas" sales. AFA applauds GAP for that decision.

Just yesterday, the AFA's senior issues analyst said we should ban gay people the way we ban trans fats. This builds on the AFA's earlier idea that we should treat gay people the way we treat drug addicts. Frankly, when it comes to human beings, wars, and the AFA, it's not the fake "war on Christmas" that should be of concern.

On its fact, it sure doesn't sound like a great move, Gap. I, a consumer whose daughter has taken a liking to some of Baby Gap's wares, look forward to clarification.
