More than 15,000 urge Best Buy to oppose Minnesota marriage amendment

More than 15,000 people have joined a campaign on Change.org calling on Best Buy to speak out against a ballot measure that would amend the Minnesota constitution to ban same-sex marriage. Its goal is to get Best Buy shoppers to urge the company to condemn efforts to ban same-sex marriage, and by all accounts, customers appear to be listening. On the other hand, last month, Target‘s “Wear it with Pride” T-shirt campaign donated the proceeds of all sales to groups opposing the marriage amendment. Target also issued a statement, in part saying: “Target does not believe that a constitutional fight over the issue is good for Minnesota or the state’s ability to attract jobs and grow the economy.”
