Target T-Shirts Rile Marriage Amendment Supporters

Target.com

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Supporters of a marriage amendment on Minnesota’s November ballot aren’t too happy with the Target Corp.

The Minneapolis retail chain is selling “Pride” T-shirts on its website to raise funds for a marriage equality group. The company has not taken an official position on the marriage amendment, which would toughen current limits on gay rights and add a gay marriage ban to the state constitution. Target is donating 100 percent of the purchase price of the T-shirt to the Family Equality Council. Some of the other slogans on the shirts are “Love is Love” and “Harmony.”

Minnesota for Marriage campaign manager Frank Schubert says Target’s T-shirts are a “slap in the face to people of faith and supporters of marriage.” Schubert says same-sex marriage opponents constitute an overwhelming majority of Target customers.
