Now they've taken on another great American institution, Campbell's soup. They want you to know that soup is gay food.
Via the American Family Association's 'news' site OneNewsNow:
Traditional family groups are disappointed that the Campbell's Soup Company is sponsoring a homosexual event in Philadelphia this week.
The American Family Association of Pennsylvania's Diane Gramley says the company has "tainted its clean-cut image."
"Equality Forum is a homosexual event that glorifies same-sex 'marriage,' is going to have a panel discussion on how homosexuals can adopt, and it also is going to be talking about how the homosexual activists can go into schools to give the message, 'gay is okay,'" Gramley details. The forum is also "working towards getting transgenders into the military" and on how transgendered people can work to be better understood by the public.
ut the AFA of Pennsylvania president says those aspects are contrary to Campbell's image.
"When I think of Campbell's Soup, I think of the Campbell's Soup kids with their advertisement that portrays a pro-family, a family-friendly company, which is what they want to portray to the public," she suggests.
So Gramley is encouraging people nationwide to go the company's website and send a message to company officials urging them to stay neutral in the culture war and not sponsor homosexuality.
Meanwhile, she notes that other companies provide comparable soup products.
Time to buy some Campbells, folks. And while you're at it, write to Campbell's yourself, and let them know you appreciate their stance.
