Quote of the Day: Green Lantern and JC Penny

The background: JC Penny recently released the below ad for Father’s Day which features two dads:

JC Penny Gay Dads Ad for Father's DayThe text on the upper right reads: “First Pals: What makes Dad so cool? He’s the swim coach, tent maker, best friend, bike fixer and hug giver–all rolled into one. Or two.” The text at the bottom right reads: “Real-life dads, Todd Koch and Cooper Smith with their children Claire and Mason.” (source)

Today, we learned that the Green Lantern is the DC Comic’s superhero who is getting a reboot as a gay man. Both actions have earned the ire of the group One Million Moms (Penny’s already had their ire because they announced Ellen Degeneres as a spokesperson at the start of the year). The Moms took to their Facebook page where they were swamped with gay-supportive comments. This brings us to today’s quote of the day per Meg Navitsky comment:

“Looks like I’m going to buy some new Green Lantern memorabillia from JC Penny!”

Suh-NAP!

David Badash over at the blog The New Civil Rights Movement is reporting that the Lantern post has been taken down altogether.
