NOM sticking with ill-advised 'Dump General Mills' effort (a.k.a. PR fiasco in waiting)

by Jeremy Hooper

This from Brian Brown's (nakedly partisan) ActRight site:

From Seattle to Shanghai, from Brussels to Brisbane, General Mills is pushing their radical social agenda of same-sex marriage as they sell Cheerios, Lucky Charms, Betty Crocker cake mixes, Green Giant vegetables, Pillsbury biscuits, Progresso soup, Yoplait, and Haagen-Dazs ice cream. In choosing this path, General Mills has alienated thousands of employees, and forced tens of millions of customers to choose between their religious beliefs, moral convictions, and common sense idea that children should have a mother and a father, and their breakfast cereal.

Let us help you send them this message.

NOM and its Minnesota for Marriage allies have already announced plans to show up outside the Gen. Mills headquarters and publicly flog the company. That is awesome idea—an awesome idea for us. The fact of the matter is that people do not see public anti-LGBT protests like this as politically astute—they see them as confrontational, mean-spirited, misplaced, and generally hostile. If we play our cards right, this could be the best gift NOM and a state ally have ever given a local campaign!!
