Stupid Protest: Campbell Soup is Totally Gay

There's nothing like a good homophobic protest to get you in the holiday spirit!

The fun-loving bigots over at the American Family Association are irrationally mad at yet another company. This time it's at Swanson Broth/the Campbell Soup Company for promoting the evil gay agenda. Apparently they dared to promote their product with an advertisement featuring a lesbian couple. The AFA makes it seem as if they posted graphic pictures of BIG GAY SEX on the front page of Highlights, but they actually made a very sweet ad about a lesbian couple cooking Christmas dinner with their young son in the Advocate, the largest homosexual magazine in the U.S. (You can view the ad at amplifyyourvoice.org).

We think it's great that Campbell Soup acknowledges and supports all types of families. In fact, that's exactly what they said... Anthony Sanzio, a spokesperson for Campbell Soup, replied to the AFA:
"We support all types of families, regardless of how they're defined, [and have done so] for more than 100 years," Sanzio offers. "We advertise in a variety of different media outlets that appeal to a broad spectrum of society. That's what we're doing here, and that's what we'll continue to do."

Sanzio said that so far they haven't experienced any negative reaction due to the ad. I think we all need to take that one step forward and show a positive reaction. Go out and buy some Swanson Broth... and tell Campbell Soup why!

Wow, I totally wouldn't have even noticed the ad -- in fact nothing in it looks queer with perhaps the exception of the word "partner" in the opening paragraph.

Apparently they've got better Gaydar than me!


Oh, and after you buy some Campbell's/Swanson products and thank them for not caving in to this ridiculous protest, send the empty can to the AFA! Maybe with a note thanking them for making you aware that Campbell's is a company worth supporting. And if you can, donate some cans to a food drive or make a donation to a food bank or other charity, and let the AFA know about that too.
