A petition sent to the Jewish website Kosher.com received immediate action in discontinuing affiliation with the group JONAH, Jews Offering New Alternatives to Homosexuality. Truth Wins Out launched the petition on Change.org asking Kosher.com to stop allowing the ex-gay group JONAH to participate as an affiliate in their shopping rewards program.
"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 is a GLBT organization that campaigns against anti-gay misinformation. Change.org allows individuals a platform to have a grassroots campaign for change.
