Comments regarding Victoria’s Secret from around the country and world

Email #1: Regarding Victoria’s Secret

Some cities have had some victories apparently:

I took my daughter to Victoria’s Secret, planning to get honeymoon nighties, and was happily surprised to find the place not openly or plainly erotic – but unhappily found that the things were just ugly: plain, unfrilly, no lace, just unflatteringly skimpy or tight, and clashing colors. Women (should, you’d think) want to look feminine and sexy, not just naked. Who’d have thought: Our town’s Victoria’s Secret was boring.

Bill and ADA staff . 12-1-08
Just read your ADA update about Victoria’s Secret displays in the W. Michigan ( and other) malls. You have every right and responsibility to encourage people to stand for what God says is good for our society. We are not “sheeple” as the writer indicates. Maybe that person likes “perversion,” but there are many of us who do not want it shoved in our faces when we try to be “out and about” in our daily living. Keep up the good work. God is blessing those who stand strong for Him.

Email #3: Regarding Victoria’s Secret

Dear Mr. Johnson,

I just wanted to reply back and encourage and applaud you and your staff in your efforts to stand for righteousness in this country. I too am encouraged by the efforts you all put forth. Keep up the excellent work! When I was growing up, I wished for someone to stand up and take the lead and stand for righteousness against those who advertise the seduction of filth. God Bless you and your staff, you all are a great encouragement.
Thanks, Josh
P.S. More power to ya!

Email #4: Victoria’s Secret

Was at the Mall of Abilene in Abilene, TX yesterday and the displays they had in their windows looked like something out of playboy magazine!!!!!! I hope they go out of business!

Email #5: Victoria’s Secret advertising

Glad to see some pressure being applied to get VS to tone down their advertising.

Somehow they got my daughter’s name on their mailing list…… I’m embarrassed when I find their catalog in my mailbox……….

Email #6: Request for radio interview

Hi there

My name is George Penk, I am the Producer of a nationwide radio show in New Zealand. Our station (Radio Rhema) is a Christian radio station.

I was wondering if it would be possible to have a brief phone interview with Bill Johnson (or someone else from your organisation) regarding the boycott of Victoria’s Secret?

If this would be possible, please contact me (details below) and we can arrange a time that suits you.
Thank you,

ADA Response:
I responded to Mr. Penk that I’m available. We need to stand up for decency wherever we can – as best as we can.
