Target bans the Salvation Army

Apparently, according to Snopes, the Target decision to ban the Salvation Army from soliciting was due to antidiscrimination laws.

This isn't explicitly stated, but saying "It's becoming increasingly difficult to have an exception to our policy, so we decided we would have no exceptions," seems to me to be a roundabout way of saying "we're in danger of geting sued if we pick and choose who we allow to solicit here."

Blame the anti-freedom-of-association people, aka "civil rights advocates."

That is all.
