KOTV news on 6 ^ | March 16, 2012 | Dave Gram

Ice cream maker Ben & Jerry's is supporting gay marriage in Britain by relabeling an apple pie flavor as Apple-y Ever After.

The South Burlington-based subsidiary of the global food and cosmetics conglomerate Unilever is issuing the newly labeled ice cream in the United Kingdom, where the government has said it plans to legalize gay marriage and has begun public consultation before introducing legislation.

OK, Freepers, let your creative minds run free.... what should the new flavor be named? My family has come up with a few gems, but I'm not sure the moderator would let me post them. *blush*

I would say, but it’s just too easy.

In all seriousness, I’m disappointed. I used to enjoy their Phish Food ice cream, which I now can buy because I refuse to support this.

The jokes just write themselves.

Still, I’m going to keep my karma in the positive area and not comment on all the flavors that come to mind such as:

Packed Fudge & Nuts
Banana Pops
Clam Chowder
Toot Fruty

Nope, I’m not going to make a flavor jokes. I’m going to stay classy. I certainly won’t mention:

Schweddy Balls
Double Cherry Pie
Chock full’o’nuts

Yes, I’m going to stay classy today

Why do liberals think everyone is like them? Now they have outed themselves and will surely melt into that ooze of politically correctness soup. I’m not sad.

I have a gay friend on Facebook who is very self-degrading in his jokes and has been coming up with dozens upon dozens of new flavor jokes... most I can’t post here but my eyes are watering some are so funny. (the guy is extremely libertarian, even though he is gay, he hates gay activists).

Only a "select group" could eat it - and actually like it!

What does that even mean?
What is a gay flavor or a marriage flavor or a gay marriage flavor? These things do not have flavor.

I had a gay friend who was kind of like that, he was actually a Republican and never brought up the issue of his sexuality or talked about it so it never bothered the rest of us & we all respected him for it. Although I vehemently am against it as an “abomination”, and there are only a few sins in the Bible that are an abomination to God so I know it’s pretty bad conduct in God’s eyes. Let alone flaunting your sexual preferences out in public, or publicly getting “married” to another of the same sex? (puke) How is that not throwing it in our faces? The “Don’t ask don’t tell” policy was working fine. Obama has opened a can of maggots. The “Everything Pink” going overboard for Breast cancer awareness is one thing, but labels on our food and drink promoting a perverted lifestyle? I’m glad my friend never asked me how I really felt about his being gay. He knew I was a Christian, and probably knew he wouldn’t like what I had to say about it.
It IS a perverted lifestyle, it IS a choice. People are NOT born that way (well, at least 999.9% of the time, except in the case of transvestism...which I still can’t figure out) If homosexuality WAS an “involuntary” desire then you’d have people marrying chimpanzees or cows, or their own children?
All of us, as a people “exercise” the direction in which our sexuality goes by what we dwell upon, by those images in our minds that turn us on. Thankfully God DID put it in man’s genes and character to be attracted (99.9% of the time) to women...Can you imagine a world in which women are so scarce because the general population has turned to such perverse endeavors that any “Family” type structure in the world would be rare or even exist anymore?.
It’s hard to quash and not dwell on taboo temptations that we ALL have from time to time because we are all tempted by anything the mind can visualize...or by what is put there. We choose how much or how little time our minds spend focusing on things that tempt us whether it’s the lust of sex, the greed for wealth, or the hatred or envy of others, whatever the obsessive force. WE can change the subject! in our minds.
It seemed that this “Gay marriage” agenda was being promoted big time on my college campus as early as the mid? to late 80’s, when seeing a report on TV about this issue, I wrote an essay on “Why homosexuals should not marry”. I flunked my English class and was quite p*ssed off because I had been to every class and thought the essay was pretty good, until I confronted the teacher and he wouldn’t look me in the eye, and was very angry with me, yelling at me (He did not give any explanation for my getting an F whatsoever)...I found out later he was gay. I honestly had no idea.
That was my first encounter with a gay “Activist”, who are a far cry from those people who lead quiet lives, keep their own sexual escapades to themselves, and seem to have no problem respecting other peoples and beliefs...It only takes a few anarchists or activists to stir things up in this world today. They know how to push the right collective “buttons” of the American people to force them to respond to or shine the light on any number of social or societal issues.
