Macy’s New Parade Not for Families


Macys1A coalition of pro- family and Christian groups is launching a campaign to inform American families about the unfortunate role of Macy’s, Inc. Department Stores and affiliates in supporting “gay pride” parades in cities throughout the nation.

Many people have no idea how radical these parades are,” said Phil Burress, president of Citizens for Community Values of Cincinnati. “The events and activities of a typical ‘pride’ week-end are decadent and highly-sexualized, deliberately so. They are a disgrace to communities, and certainly shouldn’t be financially supported by a retailer like Macy’s that claims to serve families.”

Sex parades in many cities, among them New York City, Columbus, Phoenix, Cincinnati, San Francisco, Seattle, and Kansas City, are supported by Macy’s sponsorship. In Orlando, Macy’s is the “presenting sponsor” of the parade.

The red star that has become Macy’s logo can often be seen floating as a balloon high above the marchers in these parades, and Macy’s employees march in the parade with signs and T-shirts that read “Pride and Joy” Yet some of their fellow parade participants are partially-clothed and engaged in simulated sex acts, even while children are present. Some official floats and signage mock man/woman marriage in support of same sex “marriage,” and others mock sincerely held Christian faith. Is this the climate Macy’s wants to support?Macys2

Macy’s also has a history of discriminating against people of faith while supporting the agenda of radical sexual activists. In 2011, Macy’s fired employee Natalie Johnson in San Antonio, Texas when she tried to prevent a male dressing as a female from entering the women’s dressing room.

Natalie prevented entry by the man because of her Christian faith, as well as to protect the privacy of women customers. Yet even though religion is a protected class under Macy’s corporate non-discrimination policy, the retailer sided with the transgendered customer’s so-called “rights” under the class of “gender identity.” Natalie, a young African-American college student, was offered a choice by Macy’s to change her mind or lose her position. She chose her principles over the job.

Throughout the summer months and “gay pride” season, Macy’s is making a different choice: to support the degradation of communities through events that are an insult to American families.

“This is nothing to be proud of,” Burress said, “and Macy’s should know better. Their customers certainly do.”

Macy’s corporate information describes the company as an outgrowth of Federated Department stores, operating both the Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s brands through 840 stores in 45 states, as well as international locations. The company has 172,500 employees.

        41% of homosexuals say they have had sex with strangers in public restrooms, 60% say they have had sex with strangers in bathhouses, and 64% of these encounters have involved the use of illegal drugs (8).

        • Depending on the city, 39-59% of homosexuals are infected with intestinal parasites like worms, flukes and amoebae, which is common in filthy third world countries (8).

        • The median age of death of homosexuals is 42 (only 9% live past age 65). This drops to 39 if the cause of death is AIDS. The median age of death of a married heterosexual man is 75 (8). [This is a reduction in the length of life by 44% (33/75 = 44%)

        The median age of death of lesbians is 45 (only 24% live past age 65). The median age of death of a married heterosexual woman is 79 (8).

        • Homosexuals are 100 times more likely to be murdered (usually by another homosexual) than the average person, 25 times more likely to commit suicide, and 19 times more likely to die in a traffic accident (8).

        • 21% of lesbians die of murder, suicide or traffic accident, which is at a rate of 534 times higher than the number of white heterosexual females aged 25-44 who die of these things(8).

    • Ray – Jesus is the Son of God.

      Homosexuals were responsible for spreading AIDS in the United States, and then raised up violent groups like Act Up and Ground Zero to complain about it. Even today, homosexuals account for well over 50% of the AIDS cases in the United States, which is quite a large number considering that they account for only 1-2% of the population.

      • Homosexuals account for a disproportionate number of hepatitis cases: 70-80% in San Francisco, 29% in Denver, 66% in New York City, 56% in Toronto, 42% in Montreal, and 26% in Melbourne (8).

      • 37% of homosexuals engage in sadomasochism, which accounts for many accidental deaths. In San Francisco, classes were held to teach homosexuals how to not kill their partners during sadomasochism (8).

      • ErickMN

        Miserable Ray. How fun it is to laugh at your whining and moaning. HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!

  • Phillip Lightweis-Goff

    Still laughing at you, Linda.

    • Ray – Jesus is the Son of God.

      Some statistics about the Homosexual lifestyle:

      • One study reports 70% of homosexuals admitting to having sex only one time with over 50% of their partners (3).

      • One study reports that the average homosexual has between 20 and 106 partners per year (6). The average heterosexual has 8 partners in a lifetime.

        Come and listen to a story about a man named Jed
        A poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed,
        Then one day he was shootin at some food,
        And up through the ground came a bubblin crude.

        Oil that is, black gold, Texas tea.

        Well the first thing you know ol Jed’s a millionaire,
        Kinfolk said “Jed move away from there”
        Said “Californy is the place you ought to be”
        So they loaded up the truck and moved to Beverly.

        Hills, that is. Swimmin pools, movie stars.

        Well now its time to say good by to Jed and all his kin.
        And they would like to thank you folks fer kindly droppin in.
        You’re all invited back a gain to this locality
        To have a heapin helpin of their hospitality

        Hillybilly that is. Set a spell, Take your shoes off.

        Y’all come back now, ya hear !

      • Vunderkint

        Ray these folks don’t care about facts or reason, this according to Marshall Kurt himself the author of the book “After The Ball” which is the blueprint for the for a psychological and emotional propaganda campaign using desensitization, jamming and conversion to manipulate the publics opinion regarding homosexuality. Even the CDCs data regarding the self-destructive nature of this behavior doesn’t even phase them.

        The nucleus of this propaganda campaign is to push the lie that it is an identity and not a behavior, utilizing this tactic they’re able to go around the legislatures and use activist judges to forward their agenda. Understand the plan and you’ll never fall for the scam!
        If you do not affirm their behavior you are set upon by the most vile attacks that’s when you’ll see the real hate come out from these people, you know the ones that cry the loudest for tolerance as we’ve seen their attacks against Chick-fil-A and Phil Robertson.
        You see it was never really about tolerance it was about forced acceptance.

  • Progressive Patriot

    Still not even sure why the author is so miffed. No one is forcing anyone at all to attend these parades. Attendance is completely voluntary.

    What ever happened to freedom of association ? Are not like minded persons allowed to gather in celebration without being subjugated under the theocratic jackboot of religionists who seem completely he!!bent on eradicating pluralism and diversity from American expression ?

    This theocratic tyranny against freedom MUST stop !!

    • Phil Heinricke

      For some reason they want to control how everyone thinks and acts

      • Progressive Patriot

        Agreed. Diversity of opinion is anathema to the religionist plan for control and obedience from the entire citizenry, faith member or NOT. “Live and let live” most definitely not in the religionist vocabulary.

        And yet the religionists on this site feel not ONE IOTA of shame or guilt at forcing their religion on everyone at the point of a gun, willing or unwilling. Once again, “No, thanks. Not interested.” is never a sufficient condition to stop the unbridled proselytizing and overbearing behavior. Exasperating. As usual.

        • Ray – Jesus is the Son of God.

          73% of psychiatrists say homosexuals are less happy than the average person, and of those psychiatrists, 70% say that the unhappiness is NOT due to social stigmatization (13).

          • 25-33% of homosexuals and lesbians are alcoholics (11).

          • Of homosexuals questioned in one study reports that 43% admit to 500 or more partners in a lifetime, 28% admit to 1000 or more in a lifetime, and of these people, 79% say that half of those partners are total strangers, and 70% of those sexual contacts are one night stands (or, as one homosexual admits in the film “The Castro”, one minute stands) (3). Also, it is a favorite past-time of many homosexuals to go to “cruisy areas” and have anonymous sex.

          • rocketmahn

            Ray, tell us all about the film “Cruising” with Al Pacino. I’ll bet you never saw a suitcase like THAT one before in your life!

          • Carol Chadbourne

            Hi, have you been? No one seems to be commenting on Macy’s…..except for the parade. I know one thing…I AM DONE WITH MACY’S, as well as HOME DEPOT. It literally sickens me to have an exhibition of ‘sex’ in the middle of New Yuck City, where kids will be present to witness the crap they are talking about…THERE OUGHTTA BE A LAW……It’s PURE-DY disgusting. They should keep their performances behind closed doors….pure exhibition like that is evil. MO…Carol

          • Vunderkint

            I’ll tell you one thing Carol the pedophiles are using the same psychological manipulation and strategy to forward their agenda of acceptance that the homosexuals used. The homosexuals would have to align themselves with them or they would be hypocrites, what was good for them is not good for pedophiles? And by what standard of morality would they even make a distinction?

      • Ray – Jesus is the Son of God.

        Homosexuals account for 3-4% of all gonorrhea cases, 60% of all syphilis cases, and 17% of all hospital admissions (other than for STDs) in the United States (5). They make up only 1-2% of the population.

        • Homosexuals live unhealthy lifestyles, and have historically accounted for the bulk of syphilis, gonorrhea, Hepatitis B, the “gay bowel syndrome” (which attacks the intestinal tract), tuberculosis and cytomegalovirus (27).

        • Phil Heinricke

          They cite these factoids to fan the flame of their hatred.

          • Ray – Jesus is the Son of God.

            I told the truth and your kind doesn’t like it, oh well.

          • Phil Heinricke

            My kind? I’m the same kind as you, Jeff

          • rocketmahn

            Tell the truth, brother, I’m behind you. I won’t give up until all of the Lesbians in the world stop wearing black patent leather shoes because they “reflect up” their own skirts, displaying their unholy hooter for the world to see. ISIS!

        • Phil Heinricke

          Well, then it’s completely understandable why you hate them so much.

        • rocketmahn

          And gays REFUSE to wear white after Labor Day! This is treason! White is one color of our beloved American flag! BENGHAZI!

    • Ray – Jesus is the Son of God.

      Many homosexual sexual encounters occur while drunk, high on drugs, or in an orgy setting (7).

      • Many homosexuals don’t pay heed to warnings of their lifestyles: “Knowledge of health guidelines was quite high, but this knowledge had no relation to sexual behavior” (16).

      • Homosexuals got homosexuality removed from the list of mental illnesses in the early 70s by storming the annual American Psychiatric Association (APA) conference on successive years. “Guerrilla theater tactics and more straight-forward shouting matches characterized their presence” (2). Since homosexuality has been removed from the APA list of mental illnesses, so has pedophilia (except when the adult feels “subjective distress”) (27).

      • peteykins

        Dude, seriously, obsessed much? I’m pretty sure you think about gays more often than gays do.

        • vorpal

          I’m married to another dude (and we celebrated 10 glorious years in May 2014), and GayRay definitely thinks about sex with men and gays more than I do. Hell, based on the fact that no one I know treats me differently on the basis that I’m gay, there are very few times that it even occurs to me outside of Christian bigotry and hatred.

          Christians have embraced every opportunity, though, to prove that they believe that up is down, left is right, etc.

    This is what I wrote on the religious wackos petition sheet. Linda Harvey is nothing but a bitter kook.

    Dear Chairman Lundgren:

    I am so delighted that Macy’s chooses to celebrate with the LGBT community.

    Your company should be complemented for standing up to equal rights for all.

    Count my family in as one who shops at Macy’s. Please consider the impact its decisions and promotions have on people when everyone is considered equal.

    Religious zealots are very dangerous and unhealthy, and only leads to a destructive lifestyle.

    • Ray – Jesus is the Son of God.

      78% of homosexuals are affected by STDs (20).

      • The Los Angeles Police says, “30,000 sexually abused children in Los Angeles were victims of homosexuals” (10).

      • 50% of suicides can be attributed to homosexuals (10).

      • It takes approximately $300,000 to take care of each AIDS victim, so thanks to the promiscuous lifestyle of homosexuals, medical insurance rates have been skyrocketing for all of us(10).

    I guess I don’t understand why Linda is mad about Macy’s participation? I didn’t think red-necks and hillbilly’s shopped at Macy’s.

    • vorpal

  • Clint Batterton

    It would be nice if this article ended the right-wing blather about how “homo-fascists” are trying to silence their opposition. Of course, for 35 years or more, the “religious” right has been making complaints or announcing boycotts of anyone and everyone showing any respect for LGBT Americans as actual human beings entitled to the same respect as anyone else. Unfortunately, self-awareness doesn’t seem to be a right-wing trait. In our town, the gay pride parade is dominated by mainstream protestant church congregations and politicians expressing their support for civil rights for everyone. Now I have to run off to Macy’s to buy some things.

  • Theodore Fenton

    Thank you, Macy’s, for taking a stand for freedom and equality. Don’t be discouraged by would-be economic terrorists spurred on by Harvey’s hate group.

  • Ray – Jesus is the Son of God.

    Homosexuals prey on children.

    • 33% of homosexuals ADMIT to minor/adult sex (7).

    • There is a notable homosexual group, consisting of thousands of members, known as the North American Man and Boy Love Association (NAMBLA). This is a child molesting homosexual group whose cry is “SEX BEFORE 8 BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE.” This group can be seen marching in most major homosexual parades across the United States.

    • Homosexuals commit more than 33% of all reported child molestations in the United States, which, assuming homosexuals make up 2% of the population, means that 1 in 20 homosexuals is a child molester, while 1 in 490 heterosexuals is a child molester (19).

    • 73% of all homosexuals have had sex with boys under 19 years of age (9).

    • Many homosexuals admit that they are pedophiles: “The love between men and boys is at the foundation of homosexuality” (22).

    • Because homosexuals can’t reproduce naturally, they resort to recruiting children. Homosexuals can be heard chanting “TEN PERCENT IS NOT ENOUGH, RECRUIT, RECRUIT, RECRUIT” in their homosexual parades. A group called the “Lesbian Avengers” prides itself on trying to recruit young girls. They print “WE RECRUIT” on their literature. Some other homosexuals aren’t as overt about this, but rather try to infiltrate society and get into positions where they will have access to the malleable minds of young children (e.g., the clergy, teachers, Boy Scout leaders, etc.) (8). See the DC Lesbian Avengers web page, and DC Lesbian Avengers Press R

    If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. Leviticus 20:13

    Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet. Romans 1: 24, 25, 26, 27.

    The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God. Deuteronomy 22:5.

    Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. Jude 7

    Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind. 1 Corinthians 6: 9.

    Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine. 1 Timothy 1:9,10.

    And if a man lie with a beast, he shall surely be put to death: and ye shall slay the beast. And if a woman approach unto any beast, and lie down thereto, thou shalt kill the woman, and the beast: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. Lev 20: 15, 16.

    Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion. Leviticus 18: 22,

    So Linda surprised did not call for a boycott of Macy’s or did you I missed it.Macy’s has a history of discriminating against people of faith. The firing of Natalie Johnson is one incidence do you have more examples Linda at Macy’s.. not saying she should have been fired I believe in second chances mistakes worked-out.
