The Christian conservative group which
called on JCPenney to fire Ellen DeGeneres because she is gay, has
criticized a gay Oreo ad.
One Million Moms, which is closely
associated with the American Family Association (AFA), on Friday
criticized Kraft Foods, parent company of Nabisco, for posting an
image of a rainbow themed Oreo cookie supporting Gay Pride on the
brand's Facebook page.
The simple message of support includes
a chocolate Oreo cookie filled with six layers of rainbow-colored
icing along with the caption, “June 25 | PRIDE.”
The graphic drew more than 52,000
shares and 177,000 likes in 24 hours, sparking an online debate which
translates into free adverting for Kraft Foods, which introduced
America's best-selling cookie in 1912.
One Million Moms warned Kraft against
making the same mistakes as JCPenney and linked the JCPenney's ongoing
financial woes to its support for gay rights.
“This loss should tell companies that
siding with radical homosexuals has its price. Another example is
Ford Motor companies. Obviously, the company's far-Left approach is
driving away shoppers and its executives. Whether JCPenney will
learn from its mistakes is yet to be seen. But JCP's freefall should
serve as a warning to other companies before they decide to cater to
homosexuals and their sinful lifestyle choices,” the group wrote at
The group urged members to contact
Kraft, saying “Supporting the homosexual agenda verses [sic] remaining
neutral in the cultural war is just bad business” and warned that
“If Christians cannot find corporate neutrality with Kraft they
will vote with their pocketbook.”
God, Oreos are gay!” Stephen Colbert exclaims.)
