On the heels — pun intended — of a disastrous transgender Bud Light marketing campaign, retail giant Target is now selling merchandise from a designer of satanic apparel.
Target’s website is currently selling two items from the brand Abprallen, a British designer which offers various apparel with images of skulls, horned goats, and numerous references to the occult.
Two of the brand’s items for sale on Target.com are an Abprallen messenger bag that reads “Too Queer for Here” and a sweatshirt that reads “Cure transphobia, not trans people.”
Other items for sale on the Abprallen website include products with messages including “Satan respects pronouns,” “Gay as Hell,” and “Join My Gay Cult.”
“Satan loves you and respects who you are. You’re important and valuable in this world and deserve to treat yourself with love and respect,” one product description reads.
Abprallen was started by “Erik-James Carnell,” a biological woman who identifies as a “gay trans man” based out of London.
On March 28, Abprallen shared the “Satan respects pronouns” design on Instagram and wrote that LGBT-identified people are “often referred to as being a product of Satan or going against God’s will, so fine. We’ll hang with Satan instead.”
The caption acknowledged using Baphomet, the goat-headed idol worshiped by Satanists, as the product’s inspiration. Carnell stated: “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 that is a mixture of genders, beings, ideas, and existences.”
They reject binary stereotypes and expectations. Perfect.”
The site also features apparel with violent symbols or messaging, including one “all genders” shirt that reads “Homophobe Headrest” with a graphic of a guillotine and skulls — which, for some Christians, could be seen as a possible reference to Revelation 20:4 and those who are “beheaded for their testimony of Jesus and for the word of God.”
The designer, Carnell, celebrated the Target deal in a May 18 Facebook post which read in part: “Being able to sell my stuff in Target stores is incredibly exciting, knowing that people are seeing it without (necessarily) explicitly seeking LGBT-related stuff is wonderful, and I’m delighted at the thought that young closeted people will see it…”
The Christian Post reached out to Target for comment but did not receive a response as of Tuesday by press time. This story will be updated in the event a response is received.
In order to avoid another “Bud Light situation,” a number of Target stores — located primarily in rural Southern areas — were forced to move the stores’ LGBT merchandise to less prominent areas of the store in response to customer “outrage,” Fox News reported Tuesday.
Other brands faced similar responses from the public, such as Nike, which named Mulvaney its “Woman of the Year” and was hired by the athletic shoe and attire company to promote its women’s Alate trans sports bras and Zenvy leggings.
When sin increases, it’s because there’s no fear of God in the land, or in the people’s hearts, and where there is no fear of God, there is no limit to evil. Jesus said that prior to His return the world will be like it was in Noah’s day. In Noah’s day, the earth had grown so wicked that God had to begin again, with Noah and his family.
“The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth and that every intention of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually” Genesis 6:5
In other words, they spent all their time inventing new ways to sin, so it’s no wonder that God judged them.
“the earth was corrupt in God’s sight, and the earth was filled with violence. And God saw the earth, and behold, it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth.” Genesis 6:11-12
Jesus tells us what, or really, Who to fear, and said, “Do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell” Matthew 10:28
Before he went to the Cross Jesus told the disciples what the world will be like prior to His second coming so we cannot say we were not warned in advance of what is unfolding in our day.
“Just as it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of Man. They were eating and drinking and marrying and being given in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. Likewise, just as it was in the days of Lot—they were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building, but on the day when Lot went out from Sodom, fire, and sulfur rained from heaven and destroyed them all— so will it be on the day when the Son of Man is revealed.” Luke 17:26-30
