Macy’s has become the latest in a long list of companies that are backing away from the Christian Values Network after learning anti-gay groups like Focus on the Family and the Family Research Council are using CVN.org to raise money, according to Change.org.
Critics of CVN have been circulating a Change.org petition to persuade Apple to also withdraw from CVN, a Web portal that lets users shop at various stores and support Christian organizations at the same time. When asked why Macy’s removed its store from CVN.org, a Macy’s spokesperson told Change.org, “Macy’s serves a diverse society. As such, we are deeply committed to a philosophy of inclusion in the way we operate our business and support our communities. We welcome all customers into our stores.” So far, Wells Fargo, BBC America, Delta, Macy’s, and Microsoft have removed their ads from CVN.
What do you think? Is this the way to force acceptance onto everyone?
