After its protest of two women kissing in an Urban Outfitters catalogue and a failed attempt to get get JCPenney to fire its new spokesperson Ellen DeGeneres, One Million Moms is now protesting the inclusion of a married lesbian couple and their daughter in a JCPenney's catalog.

To protest, One Million Moms has encouraged its members to voice their concern personally at JCPenney stores, but the response from JCPenney personnel has been less than sympathetic:

"'Last time OMM contacted JCPenney store managers, we were brushed off,' the statement said. 'Some even experienced in person the store manager saying "Thank you" and walking off while their customer and our concerned members were in mid-sentence.' It continued: 'OMM has been told that JCP corporate office told store managers to say "Thank you" and then walk away.'"

I don't know why people think they should be able to control a company's decision simply because they don't like something... with that said, I predict JCP going bankrupt in the future, their 365 days of "low prices" isn't exactly low prices... their business model fails because their prices aren't cheaper than their competitors and they can't come up with a gimmick to fool you...

I'm sure the CEO and shareholders will cry all the way to the bank because you will no longer shop there.
Their stock looks pretty stable.
