Alerting all Moms: Women Wearing Wedding Bands

The jaws of One Million Moms have dropped in outrage once again.

JC Penney has undermined the will of OMM before, by refusing to fire spokesperson Ellen DeGeneres. The campaign, like so many others, failed. Turns out Ellen is a pretty popular lady. Still, OMM kept their chins up: “OMM has so many issues to cover we had no choice but to move on earlier in the year.”

This time, though, the Moms “will not be ignored!”  JC Penney has included same-sex parents in their May Mother’s Day catalogue. You can tell they’re lesbians in the fine print, and this is too much for OMM.

The picture of Wendi, Maggie and family is overlaid with the words “freedom of expression,” a phrase that doesn’t seem to mean much to OMM. One Million Moms is an offshoot of the anti-LGBT American Family Association. They demand not to be ignored; we’ll make sure their hateful campaigns are not.
