A mother who was apparently angered over Target’s vow to allow transgender customers to use bathrooms and fitting rooms that correspond to their gender identity went marching through a store while waving a Bible.
A video of the woman’s loud protest was posted to YouTube. The woman was not named but appears to have her family in tow.
“Attention Target customers,” she yelled. “Do not be deceived, Target would have you believe with their Mother’s Day displays that they love mothers and children. This is a deception. This is not love, and they’ve proven it by opening their bathrooms to perverted men. I’m a mother of 12 and I’m very disgusted by this wicked practice.”
The big box retailer is facing a conservative backlash after announcing last month their transgender customers are welcome to use whichever facilities they are most comfortable in, Business Insider reports. Opponents have held protests outside stores, and 1.2 million people have signed a pledge to boycott the chain.
This week, Target CEO Brian Cornell doubled down and insisted the company will not reverse its position, though Insider reports Target may see a small drop in sales for a brief period.
The Bible-waving woman is most likely one of those who won’t be buying there anytime soon.
“Mothers get your children out of this store,” the woman yelled. “Mothers have enough decency to get out of this store, it’s a dangerous place… What Target has done is very hateful. It’s hateful towards families. It’s hateful towards mothers. It’s hateful towards children… Are you gonna let the devil rape your children?”
She then went on to accuse America of “bowing to the homosexual perverted agenda” and added, “You need to run and flee this place.”
