“J.C. Penney stock has dropped dramatically the last six months. Is it directly related to repercussions from their overt pro-gay advocacy or simply because of ineffective business practices?”
Here’s how readers responded:
51 Percent Largely repercussions from gay advocacy
8 percent Ineffective business practices
39 Percent Probably both
2 percent Have no Idea
This poll question, asked prior to Wednesday’s “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day,” yields some interesting results. Based on the large turnout on Wednesday to support Chick-fil-A, it would appear that there are very large numbers of people who are willing to spend money to support traditional marriage. Perhaps the flip side is that they would be unwilling to spend money to support a business who doesn’t share their values.
We would tend to agree that it is probably a combination of both poor business practices and not a small amount of negative repercussion from the business becoming involved in gay advocacy.
