Recently Oreo cookies released a rainbow ad in support of LGBT rights & solidarity. It looked kinda like this, but just the rainbow cookie and date:

(not actual ad, but close enough)

 

Facebook and twitter exploded in support for Oreo.

1. Oreos are delicious.

2. Rainbow Oreo is a clever ad, with a positive political spin.

 

Naturally, the virus of faith-based hate reared its reactionary head, with theistic legions declaring a cookie boycott. That they’d never eat another Oreo cookie again!

I have two responses for this.  First, for every Oreo they don’t eat, we should eat 3.

Second, I want to help them. I understand they wish to let corporate America know they won’t patronize their products and services because of “the gay agenda.”

So here’s a helpful list of a few companies todays modern fundamentalist consumer needs to avoid products from:

Allstate
Amazon
American Airlines
Apple
Applebee’s
Best Buy
Clorox
Coca-Cola
Costco
Delta Airlines
Ford
Gap
General Motors
Gerber Baby Products
Google
Hilton Hotels
Home Depot
IMB
Levi’s
Marriot International
McDonald’s
Microsoft
Nationwide
Nike
Olive Garden
PepsiCo
Proctor and Gamble
Red Lobster
Rite Aid
Sears
Southwest Airlines
Starbucks
State Farm
Target
United Airlines
UPS
Walgreens
Walt Disney Company

It’s a helpful list for the bigoted believer in your life. They can call up Oreo’s headquarters on their iphone..wait no…their droid…wait no…..windows phone..wait no…..their landline? And complain!

Better not post about a complaint on facebook though (founded by an atheist), and definitely not using a Mac or Windows based computer….

 

Also, here’s a handy starter list for companies with a not so stellar record on supporting civil liberties for their fellow humans:
