Forget Target, Here Are The Top Ten Christian Friendly Stores You Can Shop At Instead

Target’s announcement spurred #BoycottTarget, a campaign launched by the American Family Association. The effort proved so popular that the petition AFA started to accompany its campaign garnered over 1,090,935 signatures in only a few days.

A group that ranks businesses by their respect for Christian buyers has identified the top ten alternatives to Target, as more Americans walk away from Target for embracing the radical gay lobby and the transgender movement

The group Faith Driven Consumer, which says it advocates for the 41 million Christian-minded Americans who spend $2 trillion annually, has responded to the #BoycottTarget movement with a hashtag campaign of its own: #BUYcottWalmart.

As part of its FaithEqualityIndex, the group has ranked and published a top ten list of the best alternatives to Target.

  • Hobby Lobby: 57/100
  • Walmart: 51/100
  • Aldi: 47/100
  • Academy Sports: 46/100
  • Cabela’s: 46/100
  • Toys”R”Us: 45/100
  • Bed, Bath, & Beyond: 44/100
  • Dick’s Sporting Goods: 42/100
  • Publix: 40/100
  • Trader Joe’s: 40/100

The list and the #BUYcottWalmart campaign comes after the Target department store chain decided released to allow men who claim to be transgendered to use whichever bathroom they feel like using at any given time, at the chain’s retail outlets across the nation.

Target’s announcement spurred #BoycottTarget, a campaign launched by the American Family Association. The effort proved so popular that the petition AFA started to accompany its campaign garnered over 1,090,935 signatures in only a few days.

In explanation of its new #BUYcottWalmart campaign, FDC’s founder, Chris Stone, noted that customers deserve to feel safe when shopping

“There’s a critical business lesson to be learned with Target’s recent decision,” Stone said in a press release. “When including one group, don’t expressly exclude another. In its statement explaining why it is allowing men in women’s bathrooms and changing rooms, Target pointed out that inclusivity is at its core, and that everyone deserves to be protected equally.”

“However, hundreds of thousands of consumers around the country are expressing frustration because they specifically feel excluded by Target’s actions and, more importantly, unprotected and unsafe in Target stores,” Stone continued. “They have reacted by signing up to boycott the retailer. Our question to consumers is: So, you’ve decided to #BoycottTarget, now what?”

Transgenders comprise only about 0.03 percent of the American population, according to a study of the 2010 census. That’s roughly 1 person in every 2,400 people. Also, public opinion has shifted strongly in mid-April against Target’s transgender policy, according to a new poll.

“We believe,” Stone concluded, “a BUYcott offers consumers what they actually need and want. If you are unsatisfied with Target, the most effective way forward is a BUYcott—actively doing business with another brand that is a better fit for you. And in this case, that better fit is arch rival Walmart.” source

    I agree with everything except shopping at Walmart. They are one of the top supporters, monetarily and otherwise, for the Pride parades, most noticeably the massive one held in New York where many pranced around naked pushing their agenda to turn this country into Sodom and Gomorrah! No thank you! As a Christian, I will not have my money going to support the glorifying of sinful lifestyles.

      I had no idea about this, but I checked and Walmart was a platinum donor, wow. Thank you for posting this information.

      “I agree with everything except shopping at Walmart.”
      Me too. There was a comment on the website from a transgender that said he worked at Walmart and the company bent over backward to support him. Walmart will cave as soon as someone gets in their face about coming out of the closet. I was surprised to see Hobby Lobby ranked so low and Wal-Mart so high. When the patriarch Sam Walton was running the show I think I could have easily supported them, but since his relatives inherited the business they have been steadily turning to the left. As far as grocery stores, we have a Meijers here and I noticed they have the big three toilets, Men, Women and unisex) but I don’t know their policy on trangenders. I do like the store though. The link that Geoff supplied,
      ( http://www.faithdrivenconsumer.com/faith_equality_index_company_reviews ) will get you to a website where you can join or just get emailed with the current ratings of ALL the stores as well as the top 10. I received this the other day in an email. One email had the “The Boycott List”, and the other list was of “NONPROFITS BEHAVING BADLY”. Both are good to know.

    • completely agree with you. They’re mingled with KISS.

      • I recently saw a post that said the CEO of Sam’s Club,(Walmart), was Racist, That she openly aid there were too many white men in management positions and she was only going to hire “people of color” to even things out.,but this man , who was at the meeting notified the head of Walmart about the racist remarks.only to be told Walmarts CEO agreed with her and would do what he could to help her I don’t know if any changes have happened, but I am reluctant to shop there too. Also refusing the Salvation Army, and Toys for Tots…If anyone knows what has happened, or if things have changed, please let me know.

    Thank you for posting this information! We don’t need Target… they need us, but we must follow through with action. Then we’ll see if the .03% can sustain their business.

  • Be sure and separate yourselves from every horrific sinner, like Jesus did. (Eyeroll). Stay in your protective little church bubble. The rest of us Christians will get out among them and be living witnesses to Christ’s Good News.

      “The rest of us Christians will get out among them”

      thewarrioress,

      There is a difference between supporting a business that endorses sin and witnessing to the lost. You have tripped on your desire to keep shopping at Target.

      2Co_6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,

      Rev_18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

      • YOU and yours have tripped on your legalistic desire to be a Pharisee. Read the Bible. Learn to judge less and truly love more, like Jesus did.

        • Ky

          “YOU and yours have tripped on your legalistic desire to be a Pharisee.”
          NOT SO! Get your theology right.

          “Read the Bible.”
          Yes you should.

          Joh_5:30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.
          Joh_7:24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

          “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
          And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.” 2 Corinthians 6:14-18

    • Beverly Wells

      So you plan on witnessing to the perverts who will undoubtedly take advantage of this policy? I don’t believe that for a moment. We are told to “Have NO fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather EXPOSE them.” Ephesians 5:11. The problem is that these degenerates will EXPOSE themselves. There are already reported incidents.

    • Marian

      So you share your testimony to transgenders at Target?! Good for you.

      And, of course, you include Genesis 1:27 “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he him.

      I Corinthians 14:33 “For God is not the author of confusion… .” If God is not the source of gender confusion, perhaps the best thing one can do is tell transgenders the truth and I hope that’s what you do.

    • Eddie

      A simplistic view, an un-biblical doctrine, and a half-assed faith is the attitude that all a Christian has to do is “love” everyone and nothing else is required of them. First off there is the biblical prototype of explaining to people that they are, in fact, sinners and that something has to be done about that problem. That is the entire reason for the existence of The Gospel. The sin problem has to be fixed first before there can be any kind of relationship with Christ. When dealing with the issue of sin, Jesus and the Apostles never just walked off without pointing out to people involved in a life of sin that they were required to both repent of the sin and turn away from it. That is your biblical prototype. If a business advocates a policy that is amoral, such as the one Target now advocates concerning restrooms, and you, as a professing Christian continue to shop there, you advocate and support that amoral action just a surely as if you were standing on a street corner passing out leaflets that say the behavior is acceptable. Your continued patronage means you are endorsing that sin, directly. There is no credible debate otherwise, and as a professing Christian, you are not supposed to be lending support, or turning a blind eye to any kind of willful sin. Period.

      • Ky

        Well said Eddie!

  • I realized some time ago I was uncomfortable shopping at Target, so have avoided it. Now I am feeling relieved that I did. I am not wild about Walmart, but do go there occasionally, and Aldi regularly. Nice to have support as to why this seems ok…:-)

  • BENTON COLLINS

    I agree that Walmart should not be on the list for the reason that Walmart will go into a small town and force the Mom and Pop stores out of business. If the economy of the town starts to suffer, then Walmart pulls out and the populace does not have anywhere to shop locally so the populace has to travel a distance to purchase groceries and essentials. There are some documentaries such as topdocumentaryfilms.com/wal-mart-the-high-cost-of-low-price/ Also, there are some employment practices which make Walmart less than desirable. I do not know if there is a Biblical Principle involved in treating employees and patrons properly or not. I believe that all personal and private interaction should be based upon Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. 9The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.”

    • Ky

      “I agree that Walmart should not be on the list for the reason that Walmart will go into a small town and force the Mom and Pop stores out of business.”

      This statement is hard to rectify for someone who believes in the American way and in fact sounds like something the Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton campaign would say. We are talking about capitalism. Capitalism has made this country extremely prosperous. (Survival of the fittest) Yes it is unfortunate that small companies go out of business, but they were gouging the consumer because they were the only game in town prior to Walmart. (Full disclosure: I hardly ever shop at Walmart because so many other stores beat their prices on a regular basis.) Our current government likes to pick winners and losers. It is obvious when solar companies can’t make money with a government subsidy that the citizens should reject that plan also. If a mom and pop can be efficient they survive, if they can’t, they go out of business. How many mom and pops have you seen go out of business in poverty? I would venture to say very few, because they have been extracting huge profits out of people for a long time before Walmart arrived. It has been this way for 200+ years. What’s the problem now?

      • sheshell801

        A big store like Walmart can buy in huge bulk and purchase the items before they get their final inspection, so they get them much cheaper. Which is also why so many of their items get returned. They think they are passing the savings on to their consumers. But, my time is valuable too, I don’t have time to stand in their return lines for an hour to return their faulty merchandise. Mom and Pop prices were not that much more to get the quality offered. You get what you pay for. K-Mart it is for me…let’s save Sears and K-Mart, American iconic stores.

        • Ky

          sheshell801,

          I guess you know that no multinational conglomerate started out huge, right? Walmart started like every other retail outlet and because Sam Walton built a better mousetrap and people flocked to his store. He kept expanding. Sadly his children are taking it down, but there is a new success story built everyday in this country. (So far) At one time Walmart had the low price, not so anymore. I too shop and mom and pops occasionally, but many times they just don’t care about pricing because in a small town they have little or no competition, and Walmart changed that. Sears and Kmart are not what they used to be either. Competition is king and makes or breaks businesses everyday, and that is as it should be. If Bernie takes over and shows us how to do it in “the workers paradise” he will create, you will long for the good old days when you could shop a Walmart.

  • Bonnie

    Years ago, when I worked at Target, they were owned by the Country of France. Does anyone know who owns them now?

  • George W

    Walmart is there because they ignore Christians. Too big to care. They are as pro Christian as Obama–whom their leaders love.

  • Scratch off Wal-Mart… They directly support abortions…

    KY, I think the warrioress is the female Emery (remember good old Emery?) I guess I’m in the dark ages about Walmart. I thought they were a Christian organization. They kinda were when Sam was alive. Seems like every time the old owner dies, the young relatives are greedy and will do anything to make more money. I have been buying almost everything edible at Walmart and Aldi’s, so I guess I have to shop elsewhere than Walmart and keep Aldi’s on the list. And while I’m here, I’d like to add, I think Apostle Patrice is on drugs. Her blogs hardly ever make much sense. Just sayin’….

      Southern Belle,

      I think the ratings they use are rankings only. They are not recommendations but just where they fall out with like type businesses. For instance, Walmart gets a 51, but they rated cell phone companies and Sprint won with a 25 or 27! AT&T and Verizon were down in the teens!

  • Target is walking distance from my place. Although it is very convenient , I refused to do any business with them. They need to shut down or they will have massive law suites. They are not doing anybody good anyway. They are promoting this garbage and I won’t be part of it. Whoever the person or persons are at the top who is in charge of making decisions such as this must be perverted.

  • Susan Johnson

    We are quite surprised as well as disappointed that PUBLIX would be on this list….

    PUBLIX signed into effect, as of January of 2016–same-sex benefits for it’s associates.

    They are very LGBT-friendly…rapidly promoting any Homosexuals who work for them, believing them to be a “protected class”.

    PUBLIX goes out of it’s way to support and cater to the militant Homosexual agenda.

  • Bitter clInger

    It seems to me to be a little hypocritical to bash Target for the “sin” of allowing transgenders to use their restrooms but you guys NEVER bring up the fact that Target sells ALCOHOL, they sell those ridiculous magazines and the list goes on and on…

    Please tell me why you guys pick and choose which sin is the worst when the Bible clearly states that all sins are EQUAL.

    • Ky

      Bitter clInger,

      You have over simplified this and you are in error. God calls homosexuality an abomination, which many transgenders practice. Any sin has the power to send you to hell without salvation, but God truly finds homosexuality more disgusting than others. At the same time The Bible never condemned alcohol, only drunkenness. Those ridiculous magazines the Bible does not address, but a Christian knows what is right and wrong because the holy spirit will convict him. Let you conscience be your guide.

    • Bitter Clinger, I have no doubt some of our fine Christians here are remarried, ( committing adultery), divorced, fornicating, watching porn, and who knows what else. It’s always about sin for the legalistic types –other people’s sin, I might add.

      Homosexuals and the transgendered are nasty sinners that these white glove folks can’t touch with a ten foot pole. God really hates their sins worse than the secret ones hiding in the closets of our finest Bible believers. 😉

      • Dianne

        REPENT or PERISH warrioress for your days are numbered and you DO NOT KNOW THE DAY THAT YOUR LIFE WILL BE REQUIRED OF YOU and you will stand before the LORD GOD who is HOLY and be found wanting ( Isaiah 6:1-3)

        Proverbs 29:1 He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.

        Deuteronomy 22:5 The woman SHALL NOT wear that which PERTAINETH UNTO A MAN, NEITHER SHALL A MAN put on a WOMAN’S GARMET: for ALL THAT DO SO ARE ABOMINATION UNTO THE LORD THY GOD.

      Thewarrioress,

      ABOMINATION
      a·bom·i·na·tion (ə-bŏm′ə-nā′shən)

      n hate coupled with disgust
      Synonyms:
      abhorrence, detestation, execration, loathing, odium

      disgust
      strong feelings of dislike
      the emotion of intense dislike; a feeling of dislike so strong that it demands action
      n a person who is loathsome or disgusting

      n an action that is vicious or vile; an action that arouses disgust or abhorrence

      Coming out of the closet are you? Just know that no amount of manipulating the Bible will give you a pass on homosexuality. It’s not the sin that sends YOU to HELL, but the refusal to ask for forgiveness and repent. Homosexuals are “loud and proud” and condemn themselves because they refuse to consider it a sin, much less repenting. They are unwilling to repent.

  • ss

    Bitter – Getting remarried is not a sin, if you have a divorce based on your previous spouse cheating on you, or physically abusing you. Also, if your spouse dies you can remarry. Way to constru the bible scripture to what you want it to be, just to find a way to sin and feel good about it.

  • So now I’m a transgender, hmm? How amusing. Seriously, you make Jesus sad. You absolutely do not get it. May I suggest rereading the NT approx 3 more times? Maybe you’ll eventually grasp the overall point to a new life in Jesus Christ. Hint: what was the greatest commandment/what was the 2nd greatest? Hint: sin cannot take anyone’s salvation. You cannot earn your own either thru works. Good works are the fruit of salvation. The ugly, hateful mouths typing here are putting forth BAD fruit. A tree is known by its fruit. These trees are PHARISEE-TREES. Stinky, deceived fruit. Judgmental, terrified, fearful, ocd fruit. Blind guides fruit.

    • Ky

      “sin cannot take anyone’s salvation…”

      Thewarrioress,

      You have to be saved 1st!
      If you think you can play games with the word of God without REAL repentance and trip God up on a technicality, you may want to resign yourself to HELL.

      Mat 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
      Mat 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

      Rev_21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
      Let me direct your attention to the word “abominable”. That is a derivative and an adjective of “abomination” that means: repugnantly hateful; detestable; loathsome:
      Once again that is how God describes how he feels about homosexuality.
      Get with the program or go home.

  • Babble some more scripture, KY. What a waste of the Bible. You don’t even grasp what you babble. Anyway, I’m done here. It’s so pointless to attempt to break through the cwall of delusion that is so prevalent among you who think you are the light, but instead are in darkness, crawling around blind. I will pray for you and the others like you, KY.

    • Ky

      thewarrioress,
      I appreciate the prayer because I can use it, and I will say one for you, that God will open your eyes. There is much more to the NT than God loves us. I can back up what I say with scripture, too bad you are unable to do the same. This is what happens when you rely on man’s (or woman’s) wisdom instead of God’s.

    Respectfully, if the establishment is not patriarchal, and offers no realistic expectation of family friendly wages, it was a relationship of convenience.

    That being said, I honestly go without alot of conveniences.
