Backing up their previous words with actions, Betty Crocker went to Pride 2013 to celebrate all families with, what else, cupcakes for all! And found that while our differences make us unique, one thing makes all families the same: love.
Family Research Council President and hate group leader Tony Perkins during his “Christian” radio show today told his anti-gay minions to BOYCOTT Betty Crocker because the retail food giant supports “all families” and makes an anti-Christian cake mix.
At Betty Crocker, the only thing they’re mixing up is their priorities.
Hi, I’m Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C.
If you ask conservatives, Betty Crocker’s latest promotion is a recipe for disaster. This summer, the famous dessert line decided to jump on the same-sex “marriage” bandwagon-and bring cakes to celebrate. In Minnesota, where parent company General Mills is headquartered, Betty Crocker decided to donate wedding cakes to the first homosexual couples who exchanged vows on the first day that counterfeit marriage was legal. “Betty celebrates all families,” said manager Laura Forero. “We don’t want to be old fashioned,” the company explained. Unfortunately for General Mills, the majority of Americans think natural marriage is anything but old fashioned. And they’ve made it tough on companies like Target, Starbucks, and JC Penney who disagree. Know where your money is going. When you’re at the store, think outside the Betty Crocker box!

I’m sure the fact that Betty shows off her pearl necklace on every box is part of the problem also. Smut. Pure smut. They may as well start calling it Bukkake Crocker*snort*
So lets get this “straight”.
When hate groups like the FRC and the National Organization for Marriage call for boycotts against LGBT-friendly companies, that is a righteous crusade. But when GAY groups use or threaten the use of a boycott it’s homofascist intolerance, and bullying.
The Smoking Gunhas identified the “loving Christian” who set fire to the General Mill’s company’s lawn in protest over the company supporting same-sex marriage as Michael Leisner who works for Greater Midwest Properties and has a YouTube Channel Live4Chr1st where he claims that President Barack Obama has “bent forward to accommodate the sodomites of New York.” and makes numerous reference to “gay perverts,”
The gay marriage opponent seen in a viral video accidentally setting a fire outside the General Mills headquarters is a Minnesota real estate broker who has previously recorded a series of anti-gay YouTube clips. Michael Leisner, 65, can be seen outside the General Mills corporate campus in Golden Valley. He is carrying a box of Honey Nut Cheerios in one hand and a blowtorch in the other. On Michael Leisner’s YouTube page (Live4Chr1st) he can be seen attacking Representative Barney Frank and Bill Maher, while noting that President Barack Obama has “bent forward to accommodate the sodomites of New York.” He also makes reference to “gay perverts,” “fierce faggots,” and the “depraved, debasing debauchery of gay activists.”
Leisner has disabled the embedding of his video but not before mirrored copies were made and posted.
Still waiting for NOM, Mike Huckabee, Dana Loesch, et al to denounce Leisner’s arsonist actions and hateful words……… *crickets*
“One out of every boxes of 8 boxes of cereal in this country is Cheerios. This is really the treat now for the homosexuals. And this is our protest of General Mills. They’re advocating same-sex marriages. So we are gonna torch some cereal.”
I don’t remember anyone “torching” a Chick-fil-A?
“And they’ll know we are Christians by our acetylene torches and our love…..”
A lone gay teen took it upon himself to go out and “glitter” the 10’s of NOM protestors at General Mills headquarters which of course NOM is now selling with the outraged headline“Gay Activist Glittering Kids, Seniors.”
Personally while it was kinda lame. I can’t blame the kid because he has no guidance of what to do. And truthfully I applaud the kids gumption. AT LEAST HE DID SOMETHING (Unlike other Minnesotan LGBT’s who are sitting on their Target clad asses doing nothing.)
Where the HELL ARE YOU? Shouldn’t you be out there in GREATER numbers counter-protesting abd showing the National Organization for Marriage and the world that there are more of us supporting General Mills because of thier decision to support same-sex marriage while the few NOM bigots are protesting it?
Stop being such a bunch of prissy Nellie Olsens and get out there.
As for NOM. It was just glitter, not sulphuric acid. And besides it’s not like he was trying to take away your civil rights and make you second class citizens.
Earlier today, Tony Princess Tiny Meat Perkins, President of the Family Research Council a Southern Law Poverty Center certified hate group, weighed in on the General Mills Corporation standing up and announcing its opposition to a proposed amendment in Minnesota, that would enshrine the state’s ban on same-sex marriage in its constitution
During his daily (used car salesman sounding) radio bulletin Perkins attacked the cereal company for becoming a “general nuisance”:
In the marriage debate, General Mills just became a general nuisance. Hello, I’m Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. One of America’s largest food companies has an appetite for liberal politics. Five months before voters head to the polls, General Mills decided to weigh in on Minnesota’s marriage amendment. Like Starbucks, the company tried to argue that marriage is bad for business–a theory that’s absolutely ridiculous. Forbes magazine did a feature on the “best states for business”–and 18 of the top 20 protect natural marriage. Still, a spokesman says, “We don’t believe the proposed constitutional amendment is in the best interests of our employees or our state economy… We oppose it.” Experts say it’s a “very risky” position–especially since General Mills makes billions of dollars marketing brands to parents of kids–like Betty Crocker, Pillsbury, Green Giant, Yoplait, Cheerios, Chex, Wheaties, and Lucky Charms. It may impress their corporate friends, but it’s customers that count.
You can listen to the smarmy sounding and actually quite hysterical radio ad at Right Wing Watch.
(Ted Baxter voice:)Hello, I’m Will Kohler with Back2Stonewall.com and Tony Perkins is a major douchebag. It may impress his hateful, evil, loathsome friends, but it’s being a human being that really counts.
