JC Penney isn't backing down from the demands that they fire their new spokeswoman Ellen DeGeneres.

Earlier this week, a "family values" group called One Million Moms launched its campaign against DeGeneres,  asking people to sign an online petition and urging people to call JC Penney headquarters and demand that the Texas-based department store chain ditch the popular talk show host because she  is gay.

But JC Penney isn't having any of this.  A spokeswoman for the company tells RumorFix Thursday that the company "stands behind their partnership" with Ellen and they are proud to have her has their spokesperson.

      Keep Ellen as a spokesperson. She is awesome. She is gay? So what!

      So anyone from One Million Moms go to the hospital or the doctor and ask for a doctor or a nurse who isn’t gay? They don’t know. The person saving your life could be gay. It’s ridiculous.

      These one million moms aren’t those Laura Ingalls looking people from the square states are they?   I didn’t know they were allowed to use computers.

      I agree. Ellen is a stand up woman and should not be discriminated against because of her sexual preference.  Its 2012 half the country is gay.  That group needs to get with it or get lost!
