Campbell’s has come to the bizarre conclusion that gay people might eat soup too and has taken out magazine ads to appeal to that segment of the market, which predictably has the American Family Association all verklempt.
The American Family Association (AFA) says Christian consumers need to know that the Campbell Soup Company embraces the homosexual agenda.
Campbell Soup bought two 2-page ads in the December and January issues of The Advocate, the nation’s largest homosexual magazine. The ads promote their Swanson line of broth, and one of the ads highlights the lives of two lesbians, who are portrayed as being married, along with “their” son. Other ads feature chefs from New York City.
Cue the line from that old Pace salsa commercial – “New York City?” Cuz we all know nothing good comes from New York City. As Sarah Palin says, all values come from small towns.
Randy Sharp, AFA’s director of special projects, says concerned consumers should contact company officials and ask them to stop endorsing homosexuality.
“When you specifically target a homosexual magazine, then your company is basically endorsing these activities; you’re endorsing the lifestyle,” claims Sharp. “And in one ad, which…clearly shows two lesbians who say they are married, who say they have a son together, …the Campbell Soup Company is saying ‘we approve of homosexual marriage.’ There is no question whatsoever of what the intentions of the company are.”
So if they took out an ad in the AFA newsletter, would that mean they’re endorsing bigoted assholes?
