That letter is perfect and so eloquently written.  I respect that people have different opinions, but how sad that a publication is more worried about their image than doing the right thing.

Shame on Weddings Unveiled.  On the bright side, with decisions like those, I’m not surprised I’ve never even heard of them.

It’s sad, but alot of the world is still like this. And I think it will remain this way for awhile still. Alot of the public has moved onto other discriminations, and others still remain on this one.

As sad as it may be, there will ALWAYS be someone being discriminated against. For being gay, for being fat or thin, for being black, white or mexican. For what they wear, or how they talk. It’s just how it is.

I was just coming over to post this!

Weddings Unveiled WAS my favorite wedding magazine. I will never buy it again.

 

If you haven’t heard of it, it’s huge in the south.mstarted by a photographer and a fashion editor, I believe.

There is an end to all this prejudice! You all remember JC Penney right? 

For Mother’s Day they posted this:

 

 

Then when they got slammed for *gasp* a homosexual agenda they responded with this for Father’s Day: 

 

The future looks brighter. Pretty soon even the small, backwards companies will learn to catch on.

Grooosssssss. 

I told FH about this.

He said, “they can tongue a hornet’s nest” HA. Meaner than the very well written response, but also satisfying.

Though I am not gay, I feel almost personally offended by this. People are sick. I just don’t get this judging people on their straightness, their gayness or their anything inbewteenness. Why are people so unbearably horrid? It makes me sick. And this magazine? So offensive. What bothers me most is the ‘these arent our personal beliefe, but you, know’. It’s the you know bit which makes me hopping bad. Like a little giggle ‘but you know…’ leaving it open ended so you can fill in the end because they have a belief they won’t say and they want you to fill in the blank so they can follow suit. It’s that ‘I don’t hate______ people BUT’ urm. yeah you do. Youre a stinkin’ biggot. Ok yeah. some people would see two women in dresses. BUT more importantly, it’s two people who love each other. It’s the hearts, souls and minds whats important not what’s between your thighs. AND let it be said (not that my opinion matters to them, of course) but with the recent gay marriage talks etc here in the UK it is actually relevent with regards to news if they are going to take the gay angle rather than the love angle. I don’t see the two women, I see two people who are in love and are so so comfortable with each other. Argh. I’m going to stop coz I will just get more and more angry. Well done to you. I hope their publication gets much bad attention from this.
