Barilla: ‘Gays can eat someone else’s pasta’
http://nypost.com ^ | September 26, 2013 | Bruce Golding

Posted on 09/26/2013 2:50:54 PM PDT by lowbridge

Anger is boiling over at the chairman of the Barilla pasta company after he vowed to only feature heterosexual couples in commercials — and added that anyone offended by his anti-gay stance could buy a different brand of noodles.

Guido Barilla told Italian radio on Wednesday that he would never use a gay family to promote the world’s leading brand of pasta, according to The Guardian.

“For us the concept of the sacred family remains one of the basic values of the company,” Barilla said. ”I would not do it but not out of a lack of respect for homosexuals who have the right to do what they want without bothering others…[but] I don’t see things like they do and I think the family that we speak to is a classic family.”

This will make it much easier to pick out pasta at the grocery now.

This is the outrage? How far we’ve fallen, and it started with, ‘we just want to be left in peace and not harassed’.

It’s his company, his choice. Look at JC Penney. They were once the iconic family place to shop. This guy has spent years developing a business that appeals to the “classic family”. Why blow it?! Bwahahaha

OK. I never gave two bits about pasta noodle brands before, but now I will.
Barilla. I will try to remember that.

“Well, if they like our pasta and our message they will eat it; if they don’t like it and they don’t like what we say they will…eat another.”

See how simple it all is?

I thought libs were the "live and let live" type. Apparently they're closer to "live the way I say or we won't let you live" variety.

Why would it ever occur to a major consumer products company to direct their marketing at homosexuals, who are a miniscule fraction of the consuming public?

We have used Barilla for years. They are so big and so well established I don’t think the gay lobby can lay a glove on them. A bigger worry is they are a European company and who knows what the ultra-PC apparatchiks at the EU might do.

Well now they’ve gone and done it. They’ll suffer the same fate as Chik-Fil-A. If they’d just made the effort to be more homo-centric they could’ve been the JC Penney of pasta.

As long as this is free choice, I’m all for it.
The trouble is, the Obamanauts will work to outlaw Barilla at military bases, government cafeterias, etc...

Hope he suffers like Chick-Fil-A suffered (i.e., not at all).

Barilla pasta is the absolute best on the market. Their sauces are also exceptional. Forget Ragu.

Only brand I have purchased for several months now. Started buying them because they were the least expensive at the time. My Obama Stash Closet is full of them. Obama would be so proud /s/.

I buy Barilla often, mainly because it’s about the only brand that I’ve found that has orzo as part of the their line (at least where I shop).

I heard this company advertised on the radio, a catholic investment firm that only invests in companies who aren’t affiliated with things catholics would find immoral. I just wonder if there is any list available on what specific companies they invest in and have ruled out. It’d be a good way to develop a no-buy list.

We have always preferred Barilla. My wife likes to get their “Plus” pasta with some added protein and Omega 3, whatever that is.
