Dropping e: Smarter than the AFA's usual habits
The American Family Association has issued a new Pepsi boycott form, which they are encouraging their followers to post at their local supermarket in order to warn shoppers about the evil "homosexual agenda™" that they perceive as existing within every one of the company's soft drink bottles. Now, we know that many of you are far too busy to wade through the whole document. So as a service to you, our dear readers, we have taken the liberty of blacking out every word that is too wrong-headed, backwards, hurtful, misrepresentative, doctrinaire, or misleading, leaving only the most educational part of the document that we could find. And after very careful examination, we've determined that the following is far and away the most scholastically sound portion of the entire flyer:
Sure, the AFA writers may have dropped the 'e.' But in the rest of the flyer, they are seriously condemning an American company because they refuse to discriminate against or encourage "change" for those who refuse to drop the LGB or T. So given the choice, we'd much rather have our children going through life struggling to pronounce this particular consonant-consonant-consonant sound than we would want them going through life demeaning gay people.
*The full flyer, for those who see a need to read the rest: PepsiCo sponsors national gay workshop [AFA]:
Due to my personal masochistic needs I'm a frequent reader of a lot of anti-gay sites (have been for years) and I've notice there’s seem to be a greater push from these site to push the whole 'ex-gay' idea lately even more so then in the past.
It seems to me that the whole "ex-gay agenda" has taken more shape since Obama won the White House and with more states jumping on board with SSM. Me thinks they might be getting a little desperate as we plus closer to a society that treats all it’s citizens as equals.

I like the redacted version much better!

I'll be sure to buy much more Pepsi products, focusing on Quaker cereals, Tropicana Juices, and Gatorade. Don't care for soft drinks, unless they're for a cocktail. Which of course, we all know every gay man enjoys. (Sorry, couldn't resist the double entendre from a previous story.)

Letters of thanks go just as far as buying product, or even better let's do both: my departments vending machine sells both coke and pepsi. I flit between them worse than I do between genders, but I've decided to settle down (on a drink :P) It's pepsi all the way baby!

Does this mean Pepsico's stock is going to go up in value?

I've always preferred Coke over Pepsi. But since the pro-bullying, pro-hate crimes, anti-gay advocacy group, AFA, started trying to impose their religious beliefs on Pepsi, I began drinking Pepsi. In fact, I buy more Pepsi than I did Coke. And if the radical anti-gay extremists keep it up, they will create a new Pepsi drinker in me (and I'm sure others.)
