Damage control. What is Target's position of the marriage amendment? Let us know ... if they are opposed to it maybe we can start shopping there again.

C'mon, Target, even Starbucks and Microsoft in additional to Minnesota-based General Mills have come out in favor of marriage equality! Make the next logical step and speak publicly in favor of marriage for LGBT couples!

Whether or not you support marriage equality, it seems pretty safe to stand against using the constitution to limit citizens rights.

Looks like all my shopping will be done at places other then Target. Won't step foot in there door's again. Pretty sad that business's feel they need to take a position on this issue.

How is that taking a stand on the issue? Why is this a news story? Target has greeting cards for everyone and every occasion. I was browsing through one day and a category called, "Birthday after a rough year." All they're trying to do here is sell cards.

hodgie999...let me guess...you probably support stores that are for the amendment right? So is it pretty sad that businesses feel the need to take a stand or that businesses feel the need to take a stand that you don't agree with? I think we know the answer.

Maybe Target should offer benefits to domestic partners...that would be the correct thing to do. Selling cards is only giving lip service to an important issue and is being done only to appear socially conscious. Target's upper management is hypocritical.

Target Corp DOES offer benefits to domestic partners. Including the family employee discount.
