Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council (FRC), has chided Betty Crocker and parent company General Mills for baking cakes to help inaugurate Minnesota's gay marriage law.

Betty Crocker donated cakes to the first three couples to marry as the law took effect on August 1. The company also invited the couples to the Betty Crocker Kitchens at General Mills headquarters in Golden Valley to taste-test wedding cakes for their ceremonies.

On Thursday, Perkins urged his listeners to boycott Betty Crocker, pointing them to an ongoing boycott against General Mills by the National Organization for Marriage (NOM).

“At Betty Crocker, the only thing they're mixing up is their priorities. Hello, I'm Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington,” Perkins told his listeners. “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…. 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!”
