Family advocate Scarlett Johnson sounded the trumpet on Target in their ongoing crusade to purportedly promote diversity, equity and inclusion.
As June approaches, corporations have already begun gearing up for their Pride 2023 campaigns, and Target is facing severe backlash for their most recent collaboration.
Target and London-based designer Abprallen have teamed up for a new Pride collection to celebrate the LGBTQ lifestyle.
The founder of Abprallen, a gay-trans man named Erik, posts and sells much more graphic and satanic products than what Target is currently listing on its website.
So @target hired an artist/activist in the trans-satanist movement...just learned that was a thing♀️ pic.twitter.com/ttSOFT1yss— Scarlett Johnson (@scarlett4kids) May 21, 2023
Pins with crystals and goat heads with the words "Satan Respects Pronouns" fills Abprallen's social media account, and with its pastel colors and messages in support of transgender youth, appears to be targeted at the younger audience.
Tragically, when reading one of Erik's posts highlighting the acceptance of Satan, it appears as though this designer's anger toward Christians comes from a place of hurt and rejection.
One post even goes in-depth about what Satan means to the designer:
"Satan loves you and respects who you are; you're important and valuable in this world and you deserve to treat yourself with love and respect. LGBT+ people are so often referred to as being a product of Satan or going against God's will, so fine. We'll hang with Satan instead.
"Satanists don't actually believe in Satan, he is merely used as a symbol of passion, pride and liberty. He means to you what you need him to mean. So for me, Satan is hope, compassion, equality and love.
"So, naturally, Satan respects pronouns. He loves all LGBT+ people. I went with a variation of Baphomet for this design, a deity who themself is a mixture of genders, beings, ideas and existences. They reject binary stereotypes and expectations."
These are the exact words of The Satanic Temple.
They say in their belief statement that they do not believe in Satan as a being, simply as a symbol.
This belief in Satan is spreading like wildfire through the younger generation of GenZ, who is struggling with their identity more than any generation prior to theirs.
There is confusion, rejection, denial, ignorance and deception affecting their very perception of life. They are struggling to get a clear sense and picture of who God is and how much He loves them. In addition to their confusion of who God is, they do not truly know who Satan is and what his plans are for them.
The myth that Satan is tolerant of them and is loving could not be further from his true goal for them: eternal death separated from their Creator.
Struggling to find answers to these spiritual questions, the youth of today are bombarded with messages contrary to God's design by almost every major corporation in America that controls advertisements and messaging that they see across the multimedia channels.
Target is one of the main purveyors of these messages, as even before they teamed up with a 'trans-satanist' they were battling calls for boycotts for promoting "tuck-friendly" swimsuit for infants and children along with chest-binders. Fury erupted when Target announced these items were specifically targeted toward children.
Satan has been engaging in all demographics of American culture for decades, and it is now coming to fruition and being accepted by popular culture.
With God being removed from society, what else but Satan and his forces would take His place?
The question remains: What are Christians going to do about it?
Jesus gave the command in Mark chapter 16 that His followers are to "go into all the world..." and not stand by while society collapses into a satanic dystopia.
The true enemy of God is busy going into all the world and preaching his own false doctrine. Now Christians must do the same, in love, and shed light on the darkness that is quickly enveloping today's society.
