Business Insider ^ | April 4, 2014 | Caroline Moss

Posted on 04/04/2014 10:34:12 AM PDT by EveningStar

On March 10, Honey Maid - the graham cracker company - launched a commercial that celebrated all different kinds of families. The message was that no matter what, love is what makes a family a family...

The title of the commercial was "Wholesome Love," but not everyone agreed with its message.

A followup video was created by Honey Maid explaining the responses to the commercial...

Without truth, there is no Love. What is true is that two people can love one another, this is true. That two people of the same sex can love each other as is natural in the function of their bodies, that is not true.

There will always be be a missing natural complementarity to this. That is reality.

I haven’t eaten graham crackers for years, but if I did it would be time to give them up.

Has Business Insider become a Homosexual front group? It seems like they have had several sympathetic articles in the past week.

The whole problem is the anti-religious and the LGBT crowd have well-funded marketing. And, some of it is brilliant. The establishment does not market itself.

I’m convinced that if you marketed suicide with wonderful visuals and inspiring music it would sell like iPhones. People would sign up for the service because they’d expect to “enjoy” it.

Actually, the error most of us make in disagreeing with these companies is that we fire back with anger. The anger is understandable, but their problem is that they don’t even believe their own message.

Notice, if a man wanted to marry twenty 4 year olds, Honey Maid would not support it. Why not? They all love each other. If a 13 year old girl wanted to make a family with a donkey, they would not support it...even if the girl said she “loved” the donkey. And, on and on.

Their error is that they only support a certain form of “love”, the homosexual agenda version, and they are more hypocritical than we are. At least most of us point to what we consider an unalterable benchmark of propriety...the Bible. They have only their opinions. And, when society takes them further down the pipe than they want, watch them squeal.

I'm not sure how one describes sex between two men as “wholesome”.

Is that like a wholesome enema?

the *vast* majority of the country wants no part of the homo deviancy they call a lifestyle.

the *vast* majority of the country also doesn't want to create a scene

therefore, the *vast* majority will just walk away. a segment will complain and explain why e-coli isn't a love potion.... but the media won't care... as they have been overwhelmingly selected to support such a mindset.

if you think the homo community is about 'love' and not genital stimulation ... then you're just uneducated.

give any homo-friendly friends you might have the following link. tell them to turn off their adult filter... then dare them to explain how any of it relates to 'love'

WARNING: NSFW - extremely graphic

this is an annual parade held in san francesspool. this is all in PUBLIC (and yes, they desecrate the alter of the local church during the events)

If their goal was to connote Honey Maid graham crackers with homosexual acts, then they’ve succeeded, as far as I’m concerned.

Of course they don't, they're a corporation trying to sell crackers. Who are they to define anything? They'll say anything they think will move product.

I love my dog, but I wouldn't want to adopt and raise a child with her.

Great, now I'm going to get "Phil Robertson'ed" and told how I compared gay people to dogs.

As much as I hate quoting Jeanene Garafalo (from The Truth About Cats and Dogs): "It's okay to love your pets, but it's not okay to LOVE your pets."

turns out they are pushing this ad campaign across all brands. i asked her if they believe the lifestyle is wholesome, since that’s the ad campaign. she said yes. i asked if she had ever heard of or been too or seen pics of the folsom sreet fair. she said no. i pointed her to it explaining that she should turn off the adult filter.

i do not see that as wholesome. the vast majority of the country does not see it as wholesome.

i won’t expose my or anyone else’s children to this crap.

told her i will boycott their products and will encourage my friends to do the same.

i will continue boycotting until they come out with a very public statement that they did not realize what that community is all about and how it is not their idea of wholesome family values.

This is quite ironic, when you consider the history of graham crackers.

"The graham cracker was originally conceived of as a health food as part of the Graham Diet, a regimen to suppress what he considered unhealthy carnal urges, the source of many maladies according to Graham."

That's from Wikipedia; but, I also know it's true.

Your dog would be a better parent than any number of 3rd generation welfare moms, absentee babydaddies, or mom's new boyfriends.

Even if s/he is a pit bull.

If Love is the criteria, why didn’t their commercial include a polygamist family too? Multiple wives or husbands would qualify under there definition. And, why is polygamy against the law if love is again the criteria for marriage?

What does Honey Maid think about the CEO of FireFox being forced to resign because he donated to a campaign against same-sex marriage?

Will they be checking all ttheir employee's voting records and firing anyone who doesn't support sane sex marriage?

gays aren’t looking for wholesome, they’re looking for some hole.

I’d be perfectly fine with accepting the homosexual lifestyle and embracing homosexual marriage as soon as they can reproduce with each other. An island of ‘lebesians’ couldn’t create a next generation and an island of stool pushers couldn’t create a next generation. That, in and of itself, is proof that their antics are unnatural.

Besides, they simultaneously want to be treated as being the same as heterosexuals yet they constantly set themselves apart for their differences. Anyone wanting to have it both ways is messed up in the head.
