Hate Group Affiliate Fuming Over Campbell's Soup Ad With Gay Dads

As Americans are increasingly accepting of gays and their families, hate groups such as The American Family Association ("AFA") are finding it harder and harder to keep the cash rolling in so that the Wildmon clan - the group's founding family - can live the good life to which they have become accustomed.  Thus the need to constantly convince the organization's sheep like, lobotomized followers that they and their fantasy world religious beliefs are under attack.   Hence the latest threats against Campbell's Soup from falsely named AFA front group One Million Bitches Moms  - AFA itself only has 186,000 paid members, so it's unlikely its smaller affiliate has numbers remotely approaching a million - in the wake of the company's ad showing two gay dads and their son.  A piece in Huffington Post looks at the self-serving rants from the sexually frustrated women at the AFA affiliate. Here are highlights:

Days after Campbell's Soup unveiled a new commercial featuring gay dads, a right-wing group notorious for getting worked up over everything from Toys 'R' Us to Chobani yogurt slammed the ad for "normalizing sin." 

In a post on its website, One Million Moms members argued that Campbell's Soup is "attempting to desensitize viewers" with the clip, which is part of a larger campaign called "Made for Real, Real Life."

"Obviously, Campbell's is sending the message that homosexual men are raising children, whom they wouldn't have if a woman wasn't involved, and they are ok with it," One Million Moms wrote. Calling the commercial (which can be viewed in full below) "a marketing decision [the company] will regret," they urge readers to stop buying Campbell's products if the company continues to the air the ad. 

"They should not be highlighting who is attracted to whom or who sleeps with whom," they wrote. "There is concern about the way this ad is pushing the LGBT agenda, but an even greater concern is the way that they are attempting to redefine 'family' and 'real marriage.'"

In June, they argued that Greek yogurt giant Chobani was "attempting to normalize sin" with a recent commercial that featured a same-sex couple. 

Still, it's unlikely that Campbell's Soup will take One Million Moms' words as a legitimate threat anytime soon. The group's best-known boycotts, including one of JCPenney after the retailer hired Ellen DeGeneres as its spokeswoman, have had a zero percent success rate. 

As noted, the One Million Bitches are not interested in a real boycott.  No, it's all about shaking down the ignorant, bigoted and gullible for more money by pretending to be "protecting" marriage" and the family.   Carnival barkers have higher integrity than these bitches.  The biggest fear of the Wildmon family is that someday they all might have to get real jobs. Oh the horror!!
