credit card swipeFather’s Day is this Sunday and a website called 2nd Vote has some tips on where to make and not make purchases.

2nd Vote rates major companies on various issues, ranging from support for homosexual and transgender causes to the environment, abortion, and gun control. Spokesman Robert Kuykendall points to one of the latest companies to undergo scrutiny. 

“A few months ago, Target goes out and [promotes an] all-comers bathroom policy that allows anyone into sex-specific facilities,” he explains. “And in a way, they really showed alignment with a liberal political movement that is attempting to destroy religious liberty protections of the First Amendment.” 

Target has a history of liberal advocacy on environment issues, support for pro-abortion organizations and is a heavy contributor to the Human Rights Campaign, the nation's most powerful homosexual activist group. The transgender policy prompted American Family Association to launch a boycott of Target to hold the retail giant accountable with consumer dollars.

Kuykendall argues that the same people boycotting Target should reward companies that don't support liberal agendas.

“2nd Vote, through our research, identified several companies that are perfect alternatives where people can get the same types of items that they would normally get at Target, but could also feel comfortable that these companies have scored neutral or higher in 2nd Vote's scoring system,” he tells OneNewsNow.

The 2nd Vote website identifies six retailers that fit the bill of not engaging in liberal advocacy: Hobby Lobby, Bed Bath & Beyond, RadioShack, Dillard's, Michaels, and BJs Wholesale Club.
