You remember that adorable ad from Campbell’s Soup that featured two gay dads and their son? Well, it has attracted the ire of right wing group One Million Moms.
That group should need no introduction, as they have gotten worked up over Toys R Us, Chobani yogurt and The Muppets. Now, they are criticising the Campbell’s ad for “normalising sin”.
The group wrote: “Obviously, Campbell’s is sending the message that homosexual men are raising children, whom they wouldn’t have if a woman wasn’t involved, and they are OK with it. Campbell’s Soup is glorifying this unnatural marriage. One Million Moms believes family is based on love, but this does not justify normalizing sin. 1MM does not agree with the need for Campbell’s to support same sex marriages or couples.”
“Companies should advertise the quality of their products. It is no longer about the product but about their cause. They should not be highlighting who is attracted to whom or who sleeps with whom. This is a marketing decision Campbell’s will regret. This gay-inclusive commercial is attempting to desensitize viewers. There is concern about the way this ad is pushing the LGBT agenda, but an even greater concern is the way that they are attempting to redefine ‘family’ and ‘real marriage’.”
One commentor on an article talking about this made a brilliant suggestion to counter any boycotts: Buy a few cans and donate them to your local food bank. Let’s do it!
