Today I read this little piece on Jezebel about how One Million Moms is super mad over a yogurt commercial. They’re mad about this commercial.
Can you feel the hell fires coming to claim you?
Well, One Million Moms wanted people to write to Chobani yogurt and express their thoughts about this commercial. I checked out their prepared email submission because I too wanted to tell Chobani how I feel, but I needed to make some changes. Here is my email (the italicized words are added by me):
As a parent and a member of OneMillionMoms.com, I am highly offended pleased by your company’s disrespect of millions of for all American families by supporting the homosexual agenda instead of remaining neutral in the cultural war. It is a poor great business decision to offend so many of your core customers with your most recent commercial featuring two lesbians naked in bed together.
This ad shows a loving couple and what could possibly be wrong with that? would be inappropriate for television even if it were a heterosexual couple naked in bed together. To make matters worse, this advertisement has aired during family programs such as “Full House” on Nickelodeon and “The Willis Family” on TLC.
Airing this commercial during family-friendly shows, especially on a children’s network, is greatpushes the envelope and crosses a line that Chobani should have never crossed.
If conservative families cannot find corporate neutralitysupport for their bigotry with Chobani, they will vote with their pocketbook and support companies that are neutralbigoted. Selling quality products has nothing to do with a person’s sexual orientation, and so there should be nothing wrong with occasionally show a same sex couple instead of an opposite sex couple. In attempting to be politically correct inclusive of all families, you are offending a huge majorityopening the minds of your customers. I implore you to consider how your commercial deceives viewers by normalizing sin and then calling it naturalkeep up the good work.
There are plenty of Greek yogurts on the market that do not support liberal causes and which moms can buy for their families. Chobani will not have my family’s business unless this commercial is pulled off the air immediately from now on.
I look forward to hearing from you.
One Million Moms…there aren’t one million of you. In fact, on Facebook you don’t even have 100,000 likes. If that’s how few Likes you have I can only imagine how few actual members you have given that “Like”ing something costs a personally almost no effort at all. Thank goodness for free speech so you can concern troll us all day long. The great thing about free speech is that free speech isn’t consequence-free speech, which means that I get to have my say to and so do the many many people who see your group for exactly what it is – way less than one million bigots.
