What Heroic Thing Did JC Penney Do After Being Targeted by An Anti-Gay Group?

The anti-gay hate group One Million Moms has issued a boycott calling for JC Penney to fire spokeswoman Ellen DeGeneres due to her sexual orientation. JC Penney responded with this fabulous Father's Day ad — featuring two gay dads for the first time in JC Penney history.

Let's step it up. You can show One Million Moms that their vicious anti-gay boycott isn't gonna fly by sharing this all over Facebook TODAY.


The copy reads: "What makes Dad so cool? He's the swim coach, tent maker, best friend, bike fixer and hug giver — all rolled into one. Or two. Real-life dads, Todd Koch and Cooper Smith with their children Claire and Mason."

You can almost hear the sound of one million bigoted moms cringing in unison.
