TAKE ACTION BELOW – Thanks To Campbell’s Soup for Including Everyone!
By Melanie Nathan, November 12, 2015.
The anti-gay organization, One Million Moms, is extremely busy, as of late. They have been asserting their fundamentalist extreme right wing prowess by pretending to be ‘morality’ police. When Campbell’s Soup used a a same-sex married couple with a child in a new advertisement the One Million Mom’s jumped into bluff, fear, myth and threaten mode. And if One Million Mom’s sounds familiar to you it is because they are the monster in the recently viral story denigrating 11 year old Amaya Scheer, the adopted daughter of a gay couple, and her family.
Their war on the LGBT community is apparent from their petty campaign against Campbell’s Soup Company, and also through their complaints against American Girl Magazine for featuring the story about Amaya, her same-sex dads, and their family of four foster adopt kids. One Million Moms cannot truly place goodness and love at the fore when instead of applauding the family for their love and philanthropic work to help foster children, they bully with hateful myth:
“As WRC-TV first reported, One Million Moms called for a boycott of “American Girl” magazine after it included husbands Rob and Reece Scheer in a story about the children that they adopted from foster care.
“Scripture says multiple times that homosexuality is wrong, and God will not tolerate this sinful nature,” the group wrote. “American Girl doesn’t highlight other sins in their magazine.”
Rob Scheer told WTTG on Monday that as a gay man with four adopted African-American children he expected a certain amount of criticism. But he was shocked because the attack came from a group of “moms”.
“These were moms! These were moms that were saying that my family was wrong, that the love that my husband and I are giving our four kids and what we’re doing was wrong,” Rob recalled. “I would expect moms not to say these type of things about our family.”
“But at the same time, these are a ‘million moms,’ they could really be helping the 364,000 kids in foster care,” he pointed out. “This is our family and it works for us. And you know what? We have four amazing kids that we adopted out of foster care. These are four kids that have fulfilled our life more than we ever thought.”
“So to tche Million Moms, I say to them, ‘You know what? Go to your local foster care agency, those kids could really use your help and not worry about the Sheer family.’”
Amaya Scheer, 11, also had a message for One Million Moms: “This is none of your business.” ” (Video here)
I am here to inform One Million Moms that real morality is when one reveres good deeds, promotes love and applauds civil rights for all Americans. Perhaps, as the Scheer family suggests, – the Moms ought to stop wasting their time and consider how they TOO can use the energy to help foster kids.
Here is One Million Mom’s insidious campaign in their words:
A homosexual “married” couple is featured prominently with a young boy (their son) in the new Campbell’s Soup advertisement. Campbell’s #RealRealLife campaign aims to change the face of the American family. It starts off with the first man feeding soup to the little boy and in a “Star Wars” Darth Vader voice says, “Luke, I am your father.” Then the other man enters the scene and says, “No, Luke, I am your father.” How confusing for this little boy and for all children viewing this commercial. 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.
Campbell’s Soup is glorifying this unnatural marriage. One Million Moms believes family is based on love, but this does not justify normalizing sin. 1MM does not agree with the need for Campbell’s to support same sex marriages or couples.
Companies should advertise the quality of their products. It is no longer about the product but about their cause. They should not be highlighting who is attracted to whom or who sleeps with whom. This is a marketing decision Campbell’s will regret.
This gay-inclusive commercial is attempting to desensitize viewers. 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.” TAKE ACTION Please contact Campbell’s Soup through our website urging them to pull this inappropriate commercial immediately and remain neutral in the culture war.
Also, let Campbell’s Soup know that continuing to air this ad and other offensive advertisements in the future will force your family to make the decision to no longer purchase any of Campbell’s Soup Company brands such as Pepperidge Farm, Pace, Spaghetti O’s, V8, Swanson, and Prego.
In their TAKE ACTION E-mail they use the subject header: “ Have you condensed your morals too?”
LET US TAKE ACTION TO THANK CAMPBELL’S SOUP:
Please take the time:-
So folks perhaps we can show Campbell’s that as an educated and loving community we understand and appreciate inclusion of all Americans in their ads.
