Kosher.com Ends Affiliation With JONAH After 1,000 Sign Petition in 90 Minutes
Wow! This afternoon, Truth Wins Out launched a petition on Change.org asking Kosher.com to stop allowing the notorious Jewish "ex-gay" group JONAH (Jews Offering New Alternatives to Homosexuality) to participate as an affiliate in their shopping rewards program.
In just over 90 minutes, over 1,000 of you signed our petition, and Kosher.com responded:
Firstly we wish to apologize if any action taken by any member of our company offended anyone. Our affiliate program has pretty much been an automated system whereby any site can go and join the program and put our banners in their email blasts going to their members.
In the past it was not something that we had monitored but considering the current reaction regarding jonahweb.org's decision to send their members our affiliate offerings, we have decided to discontinue that affiliation and our management will review our affiliate programs guidelines going forward.
Our agenda is simply to be a good company selling a good product and to be considerate of people's feelings and sensitivities.
Truth Wins Out applauds Kosher.com's decisive response. Thanks are also due to Change.org for once again providing the platform for this victory, and to Queerty for writing the story that spurred us to action. But most of all, we'd like to thank all of you, our members and supporters, for mobilizing so quickly today. You acted, Kosher.com responded, and we created positive change together.
Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to Truth Wins Out in support of our ongoing work fighting back against dangerous organizations like JONAH. Today proved that when we act together, we win.
