Skip to comments.General Mills boycott urged over marriage amendment stance
Posted on 06/27/2012 5:15:55 AM PDT by TurboZamboni
Earlier this month General Mills came out in opposition to Minnesota's marriage amendment ballot measure. Now supporters of the proposed amendment have launched a boycott of General Mills, imploring consumers to dump their Cheerios, Yoplait, and the myriad other products the Golden Valley manufacturer makes and markets.
The National Organization for Marriage said Tuesday, June 26, that it is initiating a protest of General Mills and has launched a website with an online petition in response to General Mills taking a public position on the amendment, which seeks to preserve Minnesota law that defines marriage as the union of a man and a woman.

I sent e-mail to General Mills some days ago asking WHY I
should not remove every product of theirs from my house.
would feed the birds —but am afraid I might be charged with animal cruelty. Were it not for a very small remnant we would all be made to be like Sodom and like unto Gomorrah.As it is written.
You can add Nabisco, Target, JCPenny, Disney, P&G and a hundred other such companies to the boycott list. These companies know that these so-called boycotts don't amount to a thing. If you boycotted them all you'd be living in a cave eating berries and wearing fig leaves. They know they can and will survive because the boycotts are represented to the general public as the realm of the "far right". When there is a boycott of Rush, it is carried as being mainstream and inline with the popular view. None of these companies would EVER come out against gay marriage despite the fact that most people oppose it. The liberals have learned from history. When you control the message, a small minority can control the whole country. We'll win some elections and lose some elections, but that is not where these battles are fought. Until we realize we're fighting in the wrong battlefield, gay marriage is just another domino to fall. There are more to come.
This sounds worth a shot, Dems have organized to launch boycotts of companies that donate to causes they disagree with, as well as Glenn Beck and Rush. Our side needs to give it a try.
Basically every company is obviously going to be gay friendly....we have seen it here numerous times. We are living in not only a very dangerous time but a very sad time. Boycotts don’t work apprently but if you end up having to eat only foods out of your garden to survive these times, your time in Heaven will be 100 percent worth it.
I wonder how the Christians who vote democrat will explain to Jesus their support, sometimes vociferously, of democrat politicians.
I know I’ll have lots to answer for too but this one is so blatantly obvious.
Since when did 2 evils make a good? Twins in thinking, signing legislation, etc. Trading one d socialist for an r socialist does not compute.
When bad seed is sowed on bad soil it produces a bad crop. For all those who complain of Snowe, Graham, Collins and the former Specter this is what you will get if you go ahead and drink the GOP koolaide
13) Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this [is] the whole [duty] of man.
14)For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether [it be] good, or whether [it be] evil.
Maybe you could rewrite your post in English?
I have already started avoiding General Mills products at the grocery store.
Screw ‘em. If they love sodomy, they can have it. I won’t participate.
That was a revolting display of pathetic defeatism. Man up.
So I guess I’ll be dumping my general mills stock
In my view, those haven't worked worth a darn.
And I doubt any boycott that is launched on FR would either.
Your posts sum this up very well.
A number of years ago I started compiling a list of the retail stores that were “off limits” per FReeper comments.
After a short while, we were left with the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Shops as the only acceptable one left.
Then someone posted an anti-Catholic screed and we were out of options completely.
FNC fired Beck and replaced him with the Dana Per-RINO show and Democrats celebrated their victory. Rush is big enough to survive losing sponsors.
I heard Beck was laughing all the way to the bank with his new deal. Isn’t that true?
Rush said as much about 2 or 3 years ago regarding homsexual marrage.
I left General Mills year ago over their support of Planned Parenthood.
Seems to me there can't be much time left before the Lord comes. I mean, how bad do things have to get down here?
