The Ellen DeGeneres’ Christmas Ad Sparks Conservative Protest: ‘Christians Must Now Vote With Their Wallets’

Gay talk show host Ellen DeGeneres is, once again, the focus of a debate between J.C. Penney and the conservative media watchdog One Million Moms (OMM). The comedian appears in a comical Christmas commercial for the company, during which she interacts with Santa’s elves. Rather than instilling holiday cheer, OMM believes that DeGeneres’ presence in the clip, considering her sexuality, is offensive.

“Since April, JC Penney’s has not aired Ellen DeGeneres in one of their commercials until now. A new JCP ad features Ellen and three elves,” the organization said, according to Boston.com. “JCP has made their choice to offend a huge majority of their customers again. Christians must now vote with their wallets.”

The organization went on to say that it has conveyed its concerns to the company before, but that they have been ignored.


This is so stupid I can’t help but wonder if JC Penney is secretly behind this group. When OMM protests, JC Penney sales go up.

BTW – Isn’t Ellen correctly referred to as “lesbian” rather than “gay”?

    I don’t know, she seems pretty happy to me.

    OMM gives the rest of us “wingnuts” a bad name 😉 It’s part of the fundie American Family Association. I think they pick on Ellen because she’s so darn well-liked and JC Penney is so darn mainstream America = media attention.

    I did a quickie Google search, it’s mostly Ellen/JCP stuff and a new gay character in the Marvel comics. Phfffft.

    okay, those million mom’s need to get a life, seriously, if this is what they are fricking going on about… it’s not like ellen is making out with another woman or even doing it with a woman in the commercial. seriously, sexuality is like not even in the same realm as shopping at jcpenney’s. million mom’s are ignorant and have no life and if they want they can go back to the victorian era or a time before that where they belong.

    OT: For a fun time, listen to an old BBC Radio drama of Asimov’s Foundation Trilogy.

    The last time they did this didn’t it cause a spike in sales for Penney’s? I don’t shop at Penney’s very often, but I went in and bought the grandkids a couple of tee shirts, and told the cashier, “Ellen sent me.” All of the other people in line piped in with, “Ellen sent me, too.” The cashier called the floor manager over, and told her Ellen had sent all of us in. She said she’d let the store manager know. I really think “buycotts” are more effective than boycotts. I’ll have to find something to buy there again.
