One Million Moms now targeting Urban Outfitters

Anti-gay group objects to catalog photo of two women kissing

First it was JC Penney and Ellen DeGeneres. Then it was Toys R Us and Archie Comics.

Now the anti-gay group OneMillionMoms.com is turning its attention to Urban Outfitters because a photo in the retailer's April catalog features two women kissing.

The group is urging customers to throw the catalog away, to unsubscribe to the company's mailing list and to tell the company why.

'Tell them you will also no longer shop at their stores if you hear this type of advertising continues,' the group writes on its Facebook page. 'The content is offensive and inappropriate for a teen who is the company's target customer.'

'Please send an email letter urging Urban Outfitters to discontinue this ad and immediately stop the circulation of the catalog with the two women kissing or you will make a conscious effort to shop elsewhere,' it further states. 'Also, suggest they refrain from using this type of advertising in the future.'

Last month, One Million Moms abandoned its unsuccessful campaign to try and get Ellen DeGeneres fired from her job as JC Penney's new spokesperson because she is a lesbian.

The group also led a protest against Toys R Us because it carried the Life With Archie comic book featuring on its cover the gay wedding of two of its characters.

Shortly after the protest began, the issue completely sold out.
