Re: “What Can We Do to Stop One Million Moms?

I rewrote the letter for OMM. I hope they like it. I didn't send it to Toy-R-Us though, I didn't want it to be confused for they're ugliness and hate. Hope you like it:

As a parent and a non-member of OneMillionMoms.com, I am extremely happy to learn that select Toys 'R' Us stores are now selling 'Archie' comic books with a same-sex wedding displayed on the front cover. I am referring to the o...nes where the front cover reads "Just Married" with two men marrying, one wearing a service uniform.

I am aware that Toys 'R' Us employees do not actually set up the displays; they leave this up to the vendor. Your company should be very proud of the merchandise being sold in your stores. These comic books are displayed at the front checkout counters so they are highly visible to employees, managers, customers and children, good for you!

Children are now being exposed to same-sex marriage in your toy store. This is a great incentive for parents to explain questions from their children on topics about acceptance and love between two people. Issues of this nature are important and can sometimes be introduced too early and too soon, but children are not stupid, and a loving parent can successfully explain hard issues such as these.

A trip to the toy store could turn into a valuable discussion on sexual orientation and how love is a beautiful thing. Toys 'R' Us should be more proud in bringing forward important topics with the products they carry.

Please keep all the same-sex "Just Married - Archie" comic books on your shelves. My decision to continue shopping in your stores has been reinforced.

I look forward to seeing more humanistic progress and support from you regarding my encouragement.
