Rainbow Oreo Results In Backlash

Rainbow Oreo Results In Backlash
FACEBOOK.COM
Oreo’s participation in gay pride month has some consumers threatening to boycott the company.

As part of gay pride month, Oreo released a picture of a rainbow stuffed cookie along with the message “Proudly support love!” on its Facebook page. The move has resulted in “likes” and loathes.

Kraft Foods is not planning to sell the cookie. It’s just a publicity stunt.

“We are excited to illustrate what is making history today in a fun and playful way,” spokeswoman Basil Maglaris told ABC News. “As a company, Kraft Foods has a proud history of celebrating diversity and inclusiveness.  We feel the OREO ad is a fun reflection of our values.”

Some consumers have vowed to boycott the 100-year-old company as a result of the cookie, while others have supported the move.

“God does not hate gay people, if you think that you need to get out your bible and actually read it. God loves everyone,” posted one advocate.

“Oreo you are awesome.. My daughter saw this picture while eating an oreo and said I want it! Lol yep oreo rules!” wrote another.

Oreo is not alone in its support of gay pride month. Target created a line of T-shirts earlier this month. They promptly sold out upon release.

    The boycotters should get a life. It wasn’t too long ago that a Christian mothers organization protested against one of the department stores, either JC Penny or Target for a pro-gay item. They abandoned their efforts because they could make no headway. They were far outnumbered by the people supporting what was being done.

    • Chuck

      If only the gay people buy what happens to business. Wouldn’t they want to sell to ‘everyone’? Seems like a carry over of ‘class warfare’ and we get enough of that from DC [De Clowns]

      • Karolyn

        Duh! How about all the people who accept and support gays? That’s why the mothers’ boycott didn’t work. They were drowned out.

    • Rocky Night

      What is next America? Trying to brainwash our children to their way of thinking.
      Let parents decide how to raise their own children.

  • tim

    Who cares? Oreo sales will go down, not a lot of research was done on this one. How many gay mothers are out there.

    • slapjack

      Just think of the little future transgenders fruitcake freeko’s that will remember this OREO as the defining moment when the gayfully jump for joy declaring they are free at last. Kinda makes you want to give up Oreo’s forever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • JerryWheelerSaidThis

        Go’head and give up on oreo’s … More for me!! Fact is, I don’t give squat what they advocate OR condemn, so long as they make their product and it tastes good I’m gonna scarf ‘em down.. Don’t make this ANOTHER biased time bomb.. Enjoy them for what they are and not who the makers favor. After all, you’ve been eating oreo’s for years without realizing that some of their employees are atheists and their bakers may be liberal left wing commies.. Tasted good in either case, didn’t they?

    • Karolyn

      There are a great many gay mothers.

      • http://gravatar.com/bobmann101 bobmann101

        Gay mother. Sounds like an oxymoron to me.

  • Doris Simonis

    Boycott each store & company if you do not believe what they are trying to sell. They will eventually get the sessage in the cash register. GOD will be their & your judge. Be careful what you wish for but stand up for what you “really” believe not what someone else tells you to believe. Personally I will not shop in any store that deviates from the Bibles teachings. We are tossing our great country into the trash with immoral behavior.

    • Freedom Gary

      I did eat Oreo’s but not anymore they just lost a customer for life just like Target did. Not going to get into a discussion about it, just my statement
      Gary

      • Jim in NY

        Because you don’t believe in freedom for all there Gary. Freedom just for you. Enjoy an Oreo

      • Daveh234

        Yeah, freedom…pretty ironic.
        You do have the freedom to stop eating oreos.
        Other have the right to eat them.
        You may or may not be missed at Target, who believe in freedom, too.

      • Will

        I don’t eat Oreo anyway or any junk-food for that matter. If Gay people would just do their own thing and leave our children alone nobody would care. But they are trying to force it in to our schools and that is our business. Until that began I didn’t have a problem in the world with Gay people, Now I look at it like a cancer on society. What these people need to grasp is were homosexuality natural they could have their own children. This isnt a ass swaping freak show orgy to us straight people, we are trying to raise children here. Do they have any Idea how much work it takes to raise a child? How much money? How many years? How many ball games and school clothes, doctors and dentist bills and appointments, How many sleepless nights to raise a child. So a bunch of fudge packing liberal twisted freaks can push their pole smoking agenda in to our elementary schools. I wish I could speak my mind on here. And Im not saying God doesn’t love them but he burned a enormous city man woman and child to the ground because of homosexuality. That tells me all I need to know.

      • Average Joe

        I only eat Oreos…when I’m headed to the Dentist to get my teeth cleaned…for the money they charge, they’re going to work for it!
        ;)

      • RJ

        good

      • American Taxpayer

        Oreos are the worst junk food ever.
        Try eating a scoop of Crisco mixed with
        chocolate Ovaltine and it will taste the same
        because it is the same!!

    • DR

      Lighten up you wing nuts LOL

      Get off your hate pulpit and take a hike!

    • RJ

      There is no god.

      • dufas magnet

        Yep.. And I’m sure God is saying, “There are no human beings anymore” as well.. You certainly don’t have to believe in God but don’t go about snubbing your nose at those who do.. Just live with your beliefs and allow others theirs. Declaring that you don’t believe in a deity on the roof tops no longer has the impact it used to generate, now we all have choices.. Live with it.

      THE PROBLEM WAS, MORE MALE HOMOSEXUALS SHOP AT J C Penney THAN HETEROSEXUAL MOTHERS. WHEN YOU GO TO JCP, YOU WILL SEE A LOT OF MERCHANDISE WHICH APPEALS TO MALE HOMOSEXUALS. J C Penney OPENLY ADVERTISES WITH HOMOSEXUAL-FRIENDLY MARKETING STRATEGIES.

  • Gary

    This country is indeed decending into an abyss of perverts, homosexuals, child abusers, ambulance chasing attorneys and possibly the worst, career politicians who spend our national wealth on those unwilling to work and absolutly undeserving. Small groups of people are given “special” rights and those who speak out are comdemmed and have their own rights diminished. Companies fall over themselves extolling their support for homosexual life styles in their greed to market to and squeeze out a little more profit. Money is everything and morality and principles detract from the bottom line.
    This country I grew up in of educated, free thinking and speaking men and women is declining fast. God help us all!

    • Daveh234

      Seems that the free thinking and speaking has increased and improved to include all.

      • Gary

        That’s why if I speak anything negative about the Pres, I’m a racist or “special” rights for any group makes me a hater and a non supporter of diversity. Some would see that as an improvement….

    • Kimery

      You are absolutely correct! It makes me sad to see what an amoral cesspit our country is. This is not the country I grew up in and I feel like a salmon swimming upstream holding on to the values and morals I learned and hold dear.

      • MAP

        Well said, Kimery! You have expressed my sentiments entirely. We now live in a counter-univese, where black is white, good is evil, and the worst is the best. I find myself pulling further away from this perverted culture every day. This ‘new’ America is disgusting! I will hold to my convictions and standards of morality no matter what the warped, waked-out and twisted, loons on the left think.

      • David

        Just as Sodom and Gamorrah suffered the wrath of God for it’s moral decay the US will, and already is, experiencing his wrath!

    • http://www.facebook.com/peter.e.clausen.3 Peter Eric Clausen

      Gary, I’m WITH YA man! You speak righteously…be proud of that. Shoving their agendas down our throats isn’t freedom, just like our President doesn’t believe in freedom. Give it a shot, OREO? FAIL. Kraft….FAIL.

  • Jim in MI

    i remember the early days when gays were overturning state sodomy laws. Remember they said over and over again, we just want to be left alone to love someone. Not anymore. Now, people who don’t approve are labeled as homophobic. The media and Hollywood have done their job in selling it to the public. Funny, most gay people that I know hate straights. That’s OK, but straights hating gays is not. Nice double standard.

    • Daveh234

      The assumption that “most gays hate straights” is absolutely false.
      Maybe your part of the country has had too strong of a bias towards them.
      Isolated from “friendly” neighbors a fence would be put up by any group.
      More sizable areas of the population are accepting of others lifestyles. I don’t have to condone their lifestyle, just accept their right to the freedoms we are all supposed to share in America.
      I don’t care what others religious bends are and have to accept political differences. It’s a healthy way to get along with all of mankind.
      Unless your a hypocrite to your religious beliefs, you should, too.

      • MAP

        My religious belief says, queers are an abomination. It says also, we are to abhor evil. That is what forms my opinon, not sick, twisted, and perverted nonsense from the loons on the left..

    • Karolyn

      I’ve known a LOT of gays and have never known one who hated straights. It must be you.

      • JoMama

        There ARE gays that don’t like straight people. Karolyn – I know that you want to believe that everyone is good & light – but their NOT. You cannot save the world yourself, girlie. There are straight people who don’t like gay people, too.
        My point is – you cannot demand that everybody take this & like it. YOU want to start fights & arguments over this. FOR WHAT?? You cannot MAKE anyone like this subject. Period.

        • http://www.facebook.com/johnhumbled John Mackey

          Jo, We don’t hate straights, only imbeciles. “but their not…” proves you’re a moron!

  • Doc Sarvis

    Large companies embracing homosexuals in society is a sure sign that homosexuals are gaining their rightful place in society. And they are making money off it as well (Target’s t-shirt sales – etc.).

    • ferraribubba

      Hey Doc: It seems that my late (and much missed) Uncle Wilber was ahead of his time when he married his pet goat, Billie. Yes, it was true love, until the cops busted into their honeymoon cottage and hauled them away. Wilber ended up in the State Hospital for the Habitually Confused, and poor Billie was the guest of honor at a Mexican backyard wedding BBQ Party in East L.A. The shame of it all. — Yer pal, Ferrari Bubba

      • Doc Sarvis

        It was probably NOT true love for Billie.

  • http://www.cindynel.co.za peter

    Gay pride month! Celebrate the fact that people are sicko’s? I agree with Jim in MI – gays may hate straights, but straights have no right at all to disapprove of gay behaviour? That is indeed pushing double standards to new heights. How about we have a ‘straight pride month’ where everyone can be proud to be normal? The guys can come out en masse and reveal that they like women, how about that for an admission of normality?

    • Antirino

      How about a Congressional White Caucus and a White History Month?

      • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

        “Antirino,”

        THERE USED TO BE A TIME IN WHICH I WOULD HAVE CONSIDERED YOUR COMMENTS TO BE OFFENSIVE. YET, AS I GROW OLDER, I THINK HAVING A “white history month” AND “white pride celebrations” MAY BE GOOD IDEAS.

        CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

    • Daveh234

      You forgot to include the women, were they not allowed in the display of “normal” behaviour? Or does the women thing get your blood flowing?

    • ferraribubba

      Hey Peter: What dos the Bible say about men sleeping with men? Case closed. — Yer pal, Ferrari Bubba

    What a farce America is becoming, I’m contemplating a bug out of a sinking ship. You can have your unsinkable Tytanic Sodom and Gomorra that you have created here.

  • Antny

    Why are homosexuals trying to force everyone to accept their lifestyle? I am straight and have never tried to force my lifestyle on anyone I have ever known to be gay. It is your freakin’ sex life. Kept private. NOBODY wants to know about it. The people who do are perverts anyway. Stop trying to force people to accept it and keep your sex life private!

    • Doc Sarvis

      Everyone you have ever known to be gay have probably accepted you as heterosexual. Homosexuals deserve that same level of acceptance.

      • http://Yahoo.com Bill

        I keep reading your posts. Take a break and go butt ___ someone. You’ve already made yourself clear. We don’t need your lifestyle shoved down our throats.

      • Doc Sarvis

        Sorry that you dislike my straight lifestyle. If that means yours is a homosexual lifestyle, I support you.

      • Elevenarrows

        Doc, why do you assume that all homosexuals must be virtuous and forgiving, tolerant people? That is faulty reasoning. I seriously doubt if they all accept heterosexuals. If you are truly some form of “doctor”, I expect you to have an analytical mind that would want to truly examine a topic rather than accepting generalizations with no evidence. Have you ever actually studied the “divorce” rate among homosexuals? Have you observed the low rate of monogamy among them? Have you looked at the effects on children who are reared in a same sex family? You seem to have determined right and wrong as defined by human desire rather than a firm code of morality determined by the Creator Himself. I am not arguing right or wrong based on my whims or desires. I am arguing a code of conduct based on biblical principles accepted as the moral foundation throughout most of human history.

        It seems nice and friendly and accepting to have a cavalier attitude “you do things your way and I’ll do things my way and we’ll both be happy”. True love wants what is best for the other person and realizes that sometimes what one wants is not best.

      • MAP

        Well said and dead-on, Elevenarrows .

      • Doc Sarvis

        Elevenarrows,

        You ask; “why do you assume that all homosexuals must be virtuous and forgiving, tolerant people?” Because I know several well. I never stated, nor would I state, that all homosexuals are perfect; nor would I say that all heterosexuals are perfect. I’m not sure what you mean by doubting that homosexuals “accept” heterosexuals. I can’t imagine they deny heterosexuals exist and have a right to their own lifestyle. Most, if not all homosexuals came from heterosexual relationships.

        Divorce rate and monogamy rates among any scorned and discriminated populations bare no comparison to majority populations. That is they are attempting to build relationships in hostile environments with a smaller set of mates to combine with. Very few states have even allowed homosexuals to be married.

        I would love to know why you suggest that children raised by same sex couples are any different than those raised by mixed sex couples. The same rate of screwed up folks come from both sets.
        http://www.post-gazette.com/stories/sectionfront/life/what-happens-to-kids-raised-by-gay-parents-488758/

        I am not arguing right or wrong based on my whims or desires either. Love between two consenting adults is what is right and moral here.

      • Antny

        Okay…..so why….do homosexuals keep trying to force everyone to accept their lifestyle? This isn’t just a passive “I do my thing and you do yours” situation. There is a concerted effort to FORCE everyone to accept it. Why? STOP trying to FORCE everyone to accept homosexuality. Either do it or don’t and keep your sex life private.

      • Doc Sarvis

        Antny, they want to stop being descriminated against. They are NOT trying to convert people.

      • Antny

        Then why is it necessary to force implementation of teaching sexual information to small children? That is nothing more than indoctrination. People are being FORCED to accept homosexuality. So again….WHY?

      • Karolyn

        Antny – Children need to be educated to accept everyone so people who are different than them aren’t discriminated against, bullied and kids aren’t forced into committing suicide because of the lack of acceptance.

      • http://gravatar.com/bychoosing Jay

        Karolyn says: Children need to be educated to accept everyone so people who are different than them aren’t discriminated against, bullied and kids aren’t forced into committing suicide because of the lack of acceptance.

        Children should not be bullied, ridiculed, attacked or intimidated under any circumstance, or for any reason, and school boards are right to address it when it occurs. But what happens when the policies themselves become the bullies, and begin suppressing First Amendment rights, Karolyn?

        Religious freedom is under attack in our nation’s public schools, where millions of students are bombarded with anti-Christian propaganda intended to advance their schools’ secular agenda.

        Students are taught that God doesn’t exist and that the Bible is a book of “fairy tales.” And Christians who seek to share their faith are singled out for discrimination – and punished.

        There is an intense battle for the mind and soul of children at publicly funded schools where the dominant secular culture is undermining the Christian teaching of parents.

        Students are under great pressure to conform to the schools’ radical, anti-Christian views on issues such as abortion and homosexual behavior, which are imposed on them by secular textbooks, administrators, and teachers.

        As a result of this anti-Christian indoctrination in school, countless students begin questioning their faith and ultimately turn away from the Church by the time they graduate from high school.

        Superintendent Todd Carlson of Shawano High School in Shawano, Wisconsin is sorry a student observed his First Amendment rights and had his article published in the school newspaper that denounces homosexuals adopting children. And so Superintendent Carlson is making amends by punishing this Christian kid for being so darn Christian. Superintendent Carlson has also decided in his infinite wisdom to censure this article by having it sent down the memory hole so that no one else will be confronted with this evil Christian’s views.

        That’ll show that darn Christian kid, won’t it?

        “If we do our jobs right, we’re going to raise a whole generation of kids who don’t
        believe [the claims of Christianity].”~ James Anderson, the former communications director of the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN)

  • http://searchforbiblicaltruth.com Orvis

    If you think God loves active homosexuals – read your bible and blend you understanding with what he did to Sodom and Gomorrha for that behaviour. The New Testament also condemns homosexual behaviour. God loves ex-homosexuals. Repentance (change) is required by God to access his grace and love. God hates sin, i.e. God hates homosexual behaviour. Homosexual behaviour is a choice – not something you are born to be. A leader in the White House that supports homosexual behaviour brings great shame on his office and our country.

    • Rebecca

      Orvis, God does love those who are homosexual, the man who cheats on his wife, the guy who embezzles from his workplace, the woman who beats her children, the murderer on death row and the person who drives over the speed limit. He loves the sinner but hates the sin. You indicate that if a person is sinful God does not love him. Not so…..

      For God so LOVED the world that He gave His only begotten Son that WHOSOEVER believes in Him may have eternal life. John 3:16

      God wants the sinner to repent from that sin that He hates and come to Him. This is because God loves the person but not their transgressions.

      • Jonathan

        The problem is, Rebecca, that your average homosexual doesn’t recognize their sin as sin. That’s why they try so desperately to prove they are “born that way” so that they may force Mankind’s acceptance for their sin. However, it is no different for heterosexuals. There is a movie coming out soon, “Magic Mike”, which portrays male strippers as the protagonists of the story. Many women who work with my wife have expressed their excitement for wanting to see this movie (and not for the plot or cinematography). But the Sermon on the Mount states that looking at another with lust (ie the desire to have sex with that person) is an adulterer.

        Sin is sin. Whether it is a simple white lie, murder, sexual sin, or simply not loving and respecting God (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit): it doesn’t matter. God’s irresistable wrath toward sinners is equal to His unending love for His creation.

      • bruceb64

        Repentance is the activity of reviewing one’s actions and feeling contrition or regret for past wrongs.It generally involves a commitment to personal change and resolving to live a more responsible and humane life. In religious contexts it usually refers to confession to God, ceasing sin against God in order to gain forgiveness or absolution. It typically includes an admission of guilt, a promise or resolve not to repeat the offense; an attempt to make restitution for the wrong, or in some way to reverse the harmful effects of the wrong where possible.

      • Identitee

        Bruce…that is not the sort of repentance that leads to salvation.

        To repent means “to turn.” You can turn away from things (“repent of your sins”) and you can turn toward things (“repent toward God”). The Bible tells us that we must repent TOWARD GOD to be saved. Not toward religion. Not toward good works. Not toward morality. Not toward “striving to be better.” Just toward GOD. Anything else is false religion….

  • Elevenarrows

    I’ve been boycotting Homo Depot for years. They have thrown themselves into pushing the homosexuals’ agenda to the point that they even set up kiddie crafts at the gay pride marches and events. I refuse to spend my money at businesses that promote a lifestyle that tears apart the very fiber of family and community. It is not about hating gays. I don’t hate them. God doesn’t hate them. God does; however, call what they do an abomination. For those of you who need Webster’s help with that word, it means “anything hateful and disgusting”. God can love the sinner and hate the sin and He calls His followers to do the same. He does NOT call us to condone the sin or teach the sin to our children or parade the sin down our streets or allow the sin in our schools and churches and public squares. Look at history. God has ultimately destroyed every civilization that has gone the way of open acceptance of things that God has called sin. To think America will avoid that fate is unbelievable arrogance and an ignorance of how God works. God may choose to not destroy us, but we certainly don’t deserve mercy.

    My family tries to eat healthy food so Oreo will not suffer much from our boycott, but at least I will know that we have done our little part to refuse to pander to the homosexuals. Frankly, as more and more companies in America give into the homosexuals’ demands (out of fear rather than a willingness to stand firm), my family has learned to do without certain products. We grow our vegetables, butcher our own meat, etc. We realize most people are not in a position to avoid buying from certain companies, but we have seen God bless our efforts to hold the line against ungodly, damaging elements that seek to turn our country into something much different from what our founders envisioned. It is unfortunate that those of us who embrace the vision of those brave men and women who fled to these shores to avoid religious persecution and rear their families according to Scripture now have to endure the rot of society that has occurred when a wicked element seeks to take over and compel others to accept their aberrant behavior. For those who need help with that word, aberrant means that which deviates from what is normal, right and true.

    I think that we should start a Fudgepackers Pride month. It would make the same statement that the gays are making.
    My husband (a redhead) thinks that we should have a whitest white-boy pride parade.

    if god made everything then he made gay people too & you should love them for that reason. if you’re gonna boycott oreos do it for the right reason, because they’re bad for you, not because they promote love.

        Karolyn:

        Yes, God did. BUT … He allows people to make their own decisions and mistakes. Just because He made somebody doesn’t mean that they are forgiven for all that they decide to do.

    • Andy

      God did not make people gay–why when he considers it an abomination do you think he would turn around and create the very thing that disgusts Him?

      • Karolyn

        NOBODY knows the mind of “God.” That is presumptuous. The Bible is a fallible book conceived by men and transcribed by scribes who may not even have gotten it all right. Then the original language got changed in translation. Do you really see God as a guy with a long beard sitting on a cloud? However, I respect your indoctrinated view, as I respect anyone’s views and beliefs. Whatever floats your boat.

  • rb

    Gay pride month? Would anyone accept straight pride month? How about a white pride month? Not likely.

  • Elevenarrows

    Doc, my response was to your comment, “Everyone you have ever known to be gay have probably accepted you as heterosexual.” I think that is a broad statement to make just because you have known some “good” homosexuals. I think the point you are missing is that I base my beliefs on something outside myself. My convictions are not dependent on my whims or desires. The heart is deceitful. It can convince a man who has faithfully supported his wife and children for many years that the little bimbo at work that flatters him is worth sacrificing his reputation and home. That is not love. A man that beats the stuffing out of his wife because he thinks it is for her own good is not showing love. The teen that grows angry when his parents restrict his behavior lashes out in anger that “they don’t love him”. Actually, they love him enough to not give in to his foolishness.

    I fear you have a warped view of love and that has enabled you to accept the propaganda of a destructive lifestyle that wants to convince you and all others as gullible as you to accept what the rest of us recognize as aberrant and destructive. I have no desire to engage in verbal battle with you, Doc. It is evident that God has darkened your foolish mind and unless He intervenes on your behalf, nothing I say will matter to you. I hope it will not offend you, but I intend to pray for you that God would open your eyes to see the path you are traveling. It’s final destination is not one you want to reach.

    • Doc Sarvis

      Elevenarrows,

      You bring up my “broad statement” (even though I qualified it with “probably”) while filling your second paragraph above with your own broad statements; including “…as you to accept what the rest of us recognize as aberrant and destructive.” A growing number of Americans are fine with the existence of homosexuality. Depending on the question and how it is worded some polls have a majority of Americans okay with the fact that two consenting adults, hetero or homosexual, love each other and experience life together in the approving eyes of God.

    Jonathan,

    I wasn’t saying that God doesn’t punish sin but rather responding to Orvis that He does LOVE everyone. Orvis commented that God only loves those who have repented. But the Bible says that He loves all sinners and wants them to come to him for forgiveness and repentance. I do believe that God punishes those who continue to live in a state of sin and unbelief.

    This is why I leave it up to God to judge and punish or forgive whichever the case may be. None of us on this blog have room to throw stones as we all have sinned and come short of God’s Glory.

        If behaviours didn’t have consequences, Karolyn, then you can spew your nonsense. No human behaviours happen in a vacuum so they affect everything and everyone.

        Karolyn, I would agree with you, except that when homosexuals talk publicly about their sexual orientation, they are offering to make it everyone’s business. But they are going far beyond just talking publicly. They are trying to shove it down our throats at every turn; teaching it to our children in public schools; demanding special rights. A baker in my state was sued by a lesbian couple because she wouldn’t bake them a wedding cake. Homosexuals act like that and then try to tell us their “sexual orientation” is none of our business?! Please!

      • http://gravatar.com/bychoosing Jay

        jazzabelle, they are more than just talking openly about their lifestyle, much, much, more then that. Even a casual, non-religious, un-biased-observer, when considering this crowd, would have to conclude that these, “same-sex-preference-types”, behave in like manner to religious-fanatics. They would also have to conclude that perhaps they belong to some kind of strange cult, that being, based on the fervent manner in which they proselytize. No doubt about it, what we are dealing with here, is religious fanatics; totally dedicated to their religion, (sodomy), and their god, (the phallus). But this, for them, is not enough. Its not enough that they be left alone to practise their strange religion, no, no! In the true fashion, and rigid mind-set of the spiritually depraved, they insist, and that, with a determination of a rabid dog, that all, should/must bow their knee to their god, and that all, should teach their perverted religion to their progeny. They are so beyond depraved, that their consciences, having been totally seared, as with a hot-iron, no longer function as warning systems, warning them of impending doom! These are the days we were warned about, through Holy Writ, that we must be mindful, and to prepare. As well, parental caution, vigil, protection, and oversight, with respect to our young, must be constant. Godly parents, remove your children from State-sponsered, State-protected institutions, and raise your children as God-YHWH intended, that being, for His Glory!

    • Nadzieja Batki

      You mean the Conservatives/Libertarians must not voice their opinions because you will get offended.
      As for the Bible that you find so offensive it is the Manual for Life on this Earth and Beyond. No one is forcing you to read the Master Manual, you can read all the commentaries on the Manual and find all the loopholes to your heart’s content.

      And where do you get your doctrines from? Sin is Sin, just some sins are more odious and obvious.

    God! You people make me ill! So holier-than-thoui! My coworker was just told today by her 20 year old son that he is gay. Her response: “I love you no matter what you are.” He has a loving and accepting family; and I am so happy for him. God forbid somebody like elevenarrows found out one of her kids was gay. I am so happy that there are those of us who do not denigrate others because of their sexual orientation, lifestyle, politics or whatever. We are all human beings, and each and every one of us is unique. Celebrate our differences. What a boring world it would be if we were all the same. We can’t all be perfect like you conservative Christians.

    Call it what you wish, but I call it ‘sodomy’ and it’s a sin. Ever notice how in a lesbian relationship, one appears to want to look like the male partner and one appears to look like the female partner? Hhhmmmm…..so if two women wish to be partners, then why not be female and female in appearance and stop being female/male in appearance.

    • Karolyn

      That stereotype does not hold true all the time. However, there are many hetero women who are manly. Actually, the ones I’ve known were probably lesbians but would never own up to it. One theory I had read is that when I mother provides two much of the male chromosome to a fetus, it turns out lesbian; and if too much of the female chromosome is provided, the fetus ends up as a homosexual male.

    So, what’s next ? The International Fudgepackers Union?

    If people would learn to keep their sex lives private…there wouldn’t be a problem of acceptance based on their sex lives….because nobody would know. If you insist on vocalizing your views to others…expect resistance from those who disagree with your views….keep your mouths shut and there is nothing to disagree on.

    i don’t think the issue is a “forcing” of acceptance of the sexual component of the relationship. I think same sex couples just want to be able to hold hands in public, much the way a straight couple does, without ridicule, derision or derogatory comments. when a man holds hands with his wife in public, is he “forcing” his sex life down everyone else’s throats?

    • http://www.facebook.com/peter.e.clausen.3 Peter Eric Clausen

      It IS forcing acceptance. Straight relationships are beautiful. Being gay is an abomination. Keep it in the closet, or just go have a Jim Jones party…allya freaks.

  • theresa ziegler

    whoa. a lot of good stuff here and a lot of garbage. i have worked with gays who were wonderful and others who were revolting. my concern w/the kraft ad is that it immediatelt attracts young children who want those oreas and you try to explain that it is only an ad and not available. at an early age it alerts them to something they have no need to know. kraft is celebrating gay love and that is offensive to my family. we do not judge them but at the same time we cannot condone their actions. have you ever been witness to gay parades in california or key west – especially when you were unprepared for the spectacle and with your children? it is totally offensive and repulsive. so we will omit kraft products from our shopping list along with target and a few others and continue living clean, happy moral lives and rear our children to be upstanding citizens of this country, but foremost the precious children of. a loving and just God,

  • WilliamWallace

    Gay Pride, Black Pride, Latino Pride, invasions from illegal immigrants, the culture war against Christianity. It’s all a part of the Marxist plot that we are seeing play out in its final stages. Divide and conquer. Seperate us and place us into sub-groups so that the sheeples will no longer be able to resist. Senator Joe McCarthy was right and more people should have listened to him. Our country is being stolen from us and it is almost too late to turn back the tide.

    “Karolyn says:
    June 28, 2012 at 12:57 pm
    Antny – Children need to be educated to accept everyone so people who are different than them aren’t discriminated against, bullied and kids aren’t forced into committing suicide because of the lack of acceptance.”

    Okay….then let me put this in perspective. Why are pedophiles discriminated against? How about murders? Sometimes these people are just this way naturally. Why is it okay to discriminate against some people, but not against homosexuals? What about if people want to engage in human sacrifice and cannibalism? Why should they be discriminated against? In this world view homosexuals are clinging to, there is no person in any situation or behavior that should ever be discriminated against.

    Let’s take it a step further and theoretically eliminate God from the picture. Now everyone and everything is just here by random chance. in this case, there really is no right and wrong and all this morality stuff is purely trained into people. in this world view, there literally is nothing wrong without limit. Where does it stop?

    The answer is very simple. When the Messiah returns. Everyone is being given a chance. Everyone can choose to go against God. He is allowing it. Why? Very simple. It is part of a very elaborate plan to contain everything impure and wicked. Give them all the rope they need to hang themselves.

    So….where is the proof? How are we supposed to tell if this “God” is real? Science. True, unbiased science. When you get past all the politically and monetarily driven science to the real hardcore research, you find out that there is more proof that God is real than there is for anything else. Want to see what real unbiased science is coming up with? Research the Electric Universe theory, and the Holographic Universe theory. Granted, most people cannot deal with the truth, so you probably won’t believe any of it……because you have been indoctrinated to discriminate against anything that is not taught by the government run, politically driven, public schools. On a side note: I find it quite interesting that home schooled children turn out vastly more intelligent and in better mental health than those who attend public schools. Strangely enough, most of those are Christian based.

    i just can’t believe this stuff is so painfully obvious and people still refuse to accept it.

  • JON

    Yes, please boycott Oreo for their support of Gay Rights. We’ll all appreciate you going on a diet. While you’re at it, please also throw away your iPod, iPhone, and iPad since Apple supports as well. Hopefully you have lots of clothes, because you’ll need to ditch your Levi’s and Nike’s too. Perhaps you bought them at … JC Penney’s or Sears? Sucks you’ll have to take them back … or actually, anything you wear from anywhere probably had a gay involved. Flying somewhere soon? Better not be on American, Delta, Southwest, or United…you’ll need a new ticket. Airline wasn’t mentioned? Just be sure your jet isn’t Boeing made. Don’t sleep at Marriott or Hilton (or any of their family brands) because you might catch the gay they support. That morning coffee from Starbucks will have to go as well, go ahead it replace it with a McCafe…oh wait, McDonald’s supports gay rights too. Hmm, do you clean with Tide, Gain, or Bounty? Use Duracell batteries, shave with Gillette, or use Fixodent? Brush with Crest, use Pantene, Scope, Tampax, Venus, or Old Spice products? Those are all gone too, stupid Proctor & Gamble supporting the gays. Damn, you’re using Internet Explorer or Crome to see Facebook and read this status? Download something else, Microsoft and Google show their Pride as well. Ah, but your drinks are safe. Coca-Cola, Pepsi, and Budweiser are on your side … if your side is on the right side of history since all three also support Gay Rights. Hopefully, you or your lawyer will never need in-depth research. Both LexisNexis and Westlaw, who together control the market, support Gay Rights. Drive that big, manly, Ford F350? It’s a “Friend of Dorothy” too, as it’s company Ford and General Motors also support the rights of all. So, do us all a favor, don’t take it all out on a festive cookie … just stay home and boycott everything.

  • Jimbo

    I don’t believe in discriminating against gays, or mistreating them. I have been good friends with many gay men. However, I cannot accept the politically correct opinion of the lifestyle, because NONE of the gays I’ve met, fit the propaganda that radical gays promote. And I do not accept gay marriage because it hurts children.

    Gays would have us believe they were born gay – as if there was a gene for homosexuality. Is there a separate gene for bisexuals? What about a gene for necropheliacs, and people who have sex with animals, or young children? If these genes exist, why aren’t those behaviors protected? Don’t tell me about autopsies showing the brains of gays are different from heterosexuals. Autopsies of adult gays say NOTHING about the structure of their brains at birth. It is just as likely that the differences are the result of the lifestyle.

    I’ve NEVER met ANY baby, infant, or young child, who, lacking encouragement or a push from an adult to be effeminate, expressed ANY sexual interest in the opposite, let alone the same gender. Sexual interests develop during puberty. All the “gay” young men I have met in my 50+ years of life, started out with a strong attraction to women, but were too shy to pursue relationships with women. EVERY SINGLE ONE. They were recruited to the gay lifestyle by older gays just as those older gays tried to recruit me! The didn’t care to ask me why I wasn’t dating. (health problems) Now don’t tell me otherwise, because I too experienced the high pressure recruitment! The meanest thing they did was try to isolate me from my heterosexual friends to do their brainwashing. If I have this all wrong, and these were extreme aberrations of the community, then don’t condemn me for my beliefs, Prove me wrong!

    I’ve known gay men who adamantly insisted they were gay, but then later married women, fathered children, and lived happy heterosexual lives.. If they were gay since birth, then at the very least, they lied to friends, family and their wives.

    Gays could get all the benefits of marriage with social unions. So why do they seek marriage? Like atheists, they think that by getting society’s approval they will escape judgement from God. (Everyone will be judged.) Yes homosexual sex is a sin, like any other sexual addiction. It is disordered, and an offense to God.

    Gay marriage will make it easier for gays to adopt children. They will recruit those children to the unhappy lifestyle. (A close friend committed suicide.) Gays will raise those children as atheists, because they know that every major religion in the world teaches that homosexuality is an abomination to God One of the most important duties of a parent is to introduce their children to God so they don’t go through life fearing what happens after death. Do we really want more children to be raised without ever learning about salvation?

    Like any other human being, gays deserve our love and prayers. What will not help them is endorsing their sexual behavior.
