Culture War at Every Corner for One Million Moms

For One Million Moms, it’s a culture war at every corner.

Particularly on one corner in downtown L.A., where two men are sharing a t-shirt in a new ad for GAP’s “Be Bright” campaign.

One Million Moms recently attacked JC Penney for “pushing a deviant and unhealthy lifestyle” with their same-sex inclusive Mother’s Day campaign.

Now they implore GAP to seriously consider how their “immoral actions affect the youth of our nation.” “Selling clothes has nothing to do with a person's sexual orientation,” they proclaim.

Strong words. And yet it’s the Moms themselves who sexualized this (adorable) ad. The problem isn’t that GAP has failed to “remain neutral in the culture war,” it’s that One Million Moms continues to claim “war” where it doesn’t exist.
