RWNJ Tony Perkins Calls For Betty Crocker Boycott

From the Family Research Council:
At Betty Crocker, the only thing they're mixing up is their priorities. Hi, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. If you ask conservatives, Betty Crocker's latest promotion is a recipe for disaster. This summer, the famous dessert line decided to jump on the same-sex "marriage" bandwagon-and bring cakes to celebrate. In Minnesota, where parent company General Mills is headquartered, Betty Crocker decided to donate wedding cakes to the first homosexual couples who exchanged vows on the first day that counterfeit marriage was legal. "Betty celebrates all families," said manager Laura Forero. "We don't want to be old fashioned," the company explained. Unfortunately for General Mills, the majority of Americans think natural marriage is anything but old fashioned. And they've made it tough on companies like Target, Starbucks, and JC Penney who disagree. Know where your money is going.
Tony Perkins of the president of FRC, a conservative organization widely regarded as a hate group because of its stance in support of anti-LGBT discrimination.

  1. Seems like the profits for Target, Starbucks and JC Penney are up, so it hasn't been too tough on them. I don't think this failed attempt will make it hard on Betty either.
