Boycott on Miller Beer Working, Keep Up Pressure Urges Catholic League

Miller supported parade featured stripper in cage hoisted above church during mass

By John-Henry Westen

SAN FRANCISCO, October 1, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The Catholic League in the United States which, along with 200 supporting groups, last week launched a boycott of Miller Brewing Co. has indicated that the boycott is having an effect. The boycott was launched as the result of the beer company's sponsorship of a sadomasochistic gay street parade which features full nudity and public sex acts witnessed by children who attend the parade.

The Folsom Street Fair took place yesterday with the same notorious features for which it is known. Catholic League president Bill Donohue described the scene as reported in the San Francisco Chronicle saying, "couples led each other up and down the street with dog collars and leashes, men in thong underwear played Twister….' There was also a man who was flogged to such an extent that 'red lash marks covered his back.' Other gay men decided to 'walk around naked' in front of women and children."

In a startling revelation Donohue said "there was a female stripper who was hoisted in a cage over a Roman Catholic Church on a Sunday when Masses were being said."

The response from Miller to the boycott, "has been encouraging, though incomplete," said Donohue. "The Milwaukee brewer issued a news release on September 26 saying it took exception to the use of its logo on an offensive poster (for the parade) mocking the Last Supper. Today, it extended its original statement by apologizing for the misuse of its logo, 'particularly [to] members of the Christian community who have contacted us to express their concern.'"

The apology from Miller also indicated the company was reviewing its policies on event sponsorship. "We are conducting an immediate audit of our procedures for approving local marketing and sales sponsorships to ensure that this does not happen again," it said.

"We called Miller today asking for clarification of this statement, and we are pleased to note that a full-scale review of all its promotional policies is underway," said Donohue. "It is not certain at this time whether Miller plans to sponsor events like the Folsom Street Fair in the future. Accordingly, while we are not calling off the boycott, we are tabling a serious course of action that we were going to announce today. We expect that Miller will resolve this issue before too long."

It’s not just Miller brewing that should be shunned.
Every company that supports the immoral, sick and perverse
homosexual agenda should be boycotted by every decent American.
Hear me FORD?
Ben and Jerrys?
Etc.Etc,

I have a friend who is a beer alcoholic. He once told me that drinking a six-pack of Bud one night will give you a headache the next day but drinking a six-pack of Miller High Life won’t. I tested both beers at different times and verified his observations. (Nevertheless, the boycott is no problem for me because I am now strickly an O’Doul’s drinker.)

Some boycotts attempt to correct behavior.

Other boycotts seek to punish the offender.

The Miller boycott is of that latter catagory. At this point, I don't care if they remove their sponsorship for this event. The damage is done. I do not want to associate myself with them. My pleasurable beer-drinking activities will not be diminished by having anything to do with Miller SAB or it's subsidiaries.

Like Toshiba, they are on the Boycott for Life list.

The guy is a total hump. Half the time I don’t even know what he is talking about. The whole show should be dropped. They have a baseball commentator and the hump. Both Sunday and Monday night football need to reload their commentators they all suck. Also, both seem to think they are the show with constant close ups of the schmos when the teams are lining up and snapping the ball. Drives me crazy. I tune in to watch the game, not listen to Tony Kornheirser attempt to be relevant. Shoosh.

I thought there was already a boycott of Miller going on in response to their support of LRaza.

So, only sodomites like queer beer?

Why would people who are not affected by mental disorders want to be associated with those who are?

“...sadomasochistic gay street parade which features full nudity and public sex acts witnessed by children who attend the parade...”

I have a difficult time wondering who would go see these perverts. But worse and most appalling of all is that children were taken to see it too. Who were the bigger perverts? Those in the parade or the parents?

I am sickened by it.

I took a sample of Miller High-Life to the vet for testing and and he said, “it’s so sad that a pregnant horse would have cancer.”

Hey, life’s choices.
I choose to support those who I believe supports issues that I do and the homosexual agenda is not one of them.
There are plenty of great beers out there. If need be ask me and I’ll give ya my list of A+ ones.

Plenty that aren’t going to turn and give any of my money that is going to go for that same cause.

I can’t honestly call it a boycott, when I’m refusing to buy their product because it’s garbage.

Not to mention the Spanish pandering they did 2 weeks ago. I turned it on during the 1st quarter and hear Al Michaels talking Spanish along with the score board written in Spanish. I was like, WTF????

As I travel around the country I like to reference a brewpub website or two I know. I love to go into places you’d never think of and have a locally made beer.
Specially on a hot day after a good walk.

Many years ago, CB was a spokesperson for the long distance company Sprint. She had that post for about 8 years. During that time she also starred in the TV series Murphy Brown.

On the show, her Murphy Brown character became a single mother, and did a considerable amount of mocking the importance of fathers.

This became somewhat controversial, so CB made all the talk show rounds and steadfastly upheld the views of her character, saying things like fathers are unnecessary and irrelevant, and that sort of thing.

Eventually, after considerable heat, she turned around and started to acknowledge the importance of fathers. By then, it was too late.

I don’t drink much but in my opinion, Canadian Beer is the best. Molsen’s and OV. Miller Beer taste like drinking a cup of sugar. The only thing I get from Miller is a headache.

Pilsner is a light lager. Bud, miller, coors, PBR, bush, keystone, old milwauki...basically all american major brands are pilsners. It is a type of beer invented by the czechs, I think. Budweiser beer used to say right on the can “lager beer, made from the finest hops, rice, and barley malt”. I don’t know if it still does. Miller and Coors supposedly have never contained rice, they have corn instead. You see, malted barley is expensive. So they try to minimize it’s use to save money. Bush and natural are made at bud breweries. The rumor is that when a vat of bud doesn’t pass the taste test, they put a “bush” label on it. If it doesn’t even meet minimum standards for bush, then they put a “natural” label on it.
