Target drops gender signs for boys, girls as Franklin Graham criticizes move

Gender identity issues has no landed in Target as the retail giant is ditching gender specific signs and sections, drawing criticism from Evangelical leader Rev. Franklin Graham.

“In order to be gender-neutral, they won’t be separating things like toys and bedding into boys’ and girls’ sections,” he wrote on his Facebook page. “Oh really? And they won’t be using pink and blue colors to identify sexes. I think Target may be forgetting who has made their stores strong.”

“What’s next? Are they going to try to make people believe that pink or blue baby showers are politically incorrect?” Graham asked. “I have news for them and for everyone else — God created two different genders.”

Graham also quoted from Matthew 19:4 which states, in the words of Jesus, “Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning made them male and female?”

Graham urged Americans to make it clear to Target that they will stand for traditional views of gender.

“Let them know that you are perfectly willing to shop where the genders God created are appreciated. Target is way off-target on this one!” he said.

    Franklin Graham has his panties in a wad. He and his kind are attaching themselves to issues that in the overall scheme of things are NOT that important. Where is he on Global Warming,health issues, starvation, lack of clean water, lack of access to safe food sources, war/rape/pollution,et al? Not at all vocal about those issues because those issues aren;t sexy,hot button issues. Such a hypocrite the so-called “religious” fanatics.
