One conservative radio show host called the gay display an "airborne infection."
During the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade the cast of the Broadway musical The Prom took to the stage and made history with what is believed to be the first same-sex kiss broadcast during the nearly 100-year-old celebration.
Caitlin Kinnunen and Isabelle McCalla ended the production number with the kiss and while it may have not been a big deal to some, conservatives were not happy with the display and have asked for a boycott of the historic department store.
“Possibly millions of American children are watching, and the producers of the parade and the program know this,” said Linda Harvey, the anti-LGBT radio host of LifeSiteNews. “This offense, this corruption is deliberate as the procession toward normalizing decadence marches on.”
She added: "This agenda is like an airborne infection that’s suddenly everywhere. From ‘LGBT’ affirming church youth groups, to ‘gay’-affirming anti-bullying school lessons, to rainbow ‘pride’ apparel sold at Target and Walmart during the spring and summer, to the obligatory pro-homosexual article in the daily newspaper, to disturbed transvestites reading to preschoolers in libraries."
Harvey implores like-minded people, “do not shop at Macy’s this Christmas season and hold your children close.”
The producers of the show told Entertainment Weekly they are honored to have been a part of the historic event, “These are some of the themes reflected in our musical comedy and we are very proud to be the very first LGBTQ kiss on the Thanksgiving Day Parade.”
