    If anyone is going to boycott Kraft, make sure to include all the brands they own. I think I got most of them. General Mills has a similarly long list. There are only about 10 parent companies that collectively own virtually all the brands sold in the typical grocery store. Don't forget that the manufacturers of the brand name items often make the same product in both generic and store brand versions, too, so no substituting in order to cheat. Boycott them, too. If all the parent companies go the way of the rainbow, we're all going to disappear if we turn sideways, and Michelle will love that.

      Thanks for this great list. I won't suffer much as most of these are products I do not buy. I can make substitutions for some of them.

          It's hard to say, but my guess is that many (if not all) large companies have Gay employees simply out of necessity. Many of these companies provide benefits (health insurance, life insurance etc.) to same-sex couples. I suspect that they are jumping on the bandwagon simply because they don't want to lose these employees. At the company I work for (1200+ employees), one of the best Project Managers is openly gay. Not only is he the best PM, he is also constantly involved in training new PMs. I can see how the company would want to make sure that they keep him, and in order to do so, they would have to openly come out in favor of Gay rights (which they did).

          I guess my point is that you will have to shift your dollars to smaller Mom&Pop stores, or else become Amish ;-)

That does not seem very smart from a general marketing standpoint, because they are going to alienate one group or another by doing so. Gay people need to eat or buy clothing or drive cars or whatever, same as everyone else.

          The fact they seem to need to announce their support for gay people seems to indicate something at work behind the scenes. It's unseemly. Just a thought.

            I am still waiting on a large company to come out and endorse "Christians"! Will it ever happen? Why just do this for the gay community.

                Amen! This is the point I always make when people want to know why homosexuality is being singled out more than other sins. Imho it is because it's being shoved in our faces on a daily basis and being made to appear right and normal, even teaching little children all about it.

                  JTaylor, years ago I worked with a wonderful man who was brilliant, a trustworthy friend to me, and a homosexual. But I still don't capitalize the word "Homosexual" or "Gay" except when it starts a sentence. Why are you capitalizing "gay"?

                  I think it's their way of getting back at Christians who they feel are cramming the Bible down their throats.

                      Just remember, not every EMPLOYEE who works for these companies support a gay lifestyle...I am sure there are many Christian workers in these places. How many of you work for a Christian boss who publically supports Christian efforts.

                          I just saw on TV that Target now has greeting cards for same-sex partners.

                            They really need your help after affirming their support for anti-gay groups this week.

                              Interesting phrasing, there, Uber.

                              Chick-fil-a is a Christian company, run by Christians. The gay advocacy groups have been "hating" on them for years as a result.

                              "Anti Gay"?

                              How about "pro heterosexual"? After all, the majority of the population IS heterosexual. Not only that, it is impossible for gay people to have a child without the participation of someone of the opposite sex. In effect, gay people HAVE to become "hetero" if they want to reproduce. A man needs a woman, and a woman needs a man. It also costs a small fortune.

                              The gay lobby wants everyone to think we sit around hating on them all day, we don't. I have a deep and overwhelming pity for anyone trapped in sin, including those trapped in the homosexual lifestyle.

                              I don't hate gay people. If they die in that lifestyle they are going to hell. If I can warn them, I will.

                              I'm not a parent, but if I were I would be very angry at the "lifestyle" being promoted to children. Even office supply stores have gotten on the bandwagon.

                              I found it ironic, having them print up my tracts.

                                God wants us to find our joy in the worst of times so we do not lose our focus in the best of times.
