Target is NEUTRAL on MN Marriage Ban

Way to go Target, you're gonna alienate your target audience. Pun intended. Seriously, is there a "neutral" position on this? History will show that you were on the wrong side.
"Target Corp., which has a long history of policies friendly to gays and lesbians, said it is remaining "neutral" on Minnesota's controversial marriage amendment.

At its annual meeting Wednesday in Pittsburgh, Target Chairman and CEO Gregg Steinhafel was repeatedly asked about the company's stance on the amendment, which would put a ban on same-sex marriage into the Minnesota Constitution.

"We're a retail store, we welcome everybody," he added. "We have a broad team-member base, every shape and size and color. And so we are a very inclusive organization....We're going to continue to monitor, we're going to continue to assess, and see how that develops."
