Posted on 06/14/2012 12:02:25 PM PDT by TurboZamboni
General Mills is opposing a Minnesota amendment to ban same-sex marriage, taking a public stand on a contentious issue that most companies have tried to avoid. "We do not believe the proposed constitutional amendment is in the best interests of our employees or our state economy -- and as a Minnesota-based company we oppose it," the foodmaker said in a statement. Golden Valley-based General Mills has consistently ranked atop lists of the best corporate workplaces, including its welcoming policy toward gay and lesbian employees. But like most corporations, it has historically steered clear of controversial issues like the marriage amendment, which if passed by voters in November would place a ban on gay marriage into the state constitution.

YOU OWE ME A NEW MONITOR AND KEYBOARD! :-)!
I wish these companies would just sell their products and shut up about these issues. I’m sure General Mills probably has some good Lutherans and other folks who strongly agree with Jesus’ definition of marriage(Matthew 19:4-6) who work for them. Why aren’t their rights respected as well?
what if they were a “don’t ask to tell” soldier?
will the Jolly Green Giant now be the Gay Green Giant?
Doesn’t General Mills sell their products to Americans? I don’t do “boycotts” but I’ve spent my last penny on anything they sell. These fags need to learn to STFU and sing. If they want fag dollars more than my dollars, fine. I can work with them on that.
A Luthern in Minnesota? Get out of town ... next thing you’ll be saying is that Utah is full of Mormons ;-D
Time for a massive Boycott
I don't think Sprout is of age and should be involved in such a relationship with the Jolly Green Giant.
Nope; I don’t any of their products, anymore. Not for a while, now.
It would be interesting to obtain and post the biographies and pictures of the principal stockholders and the officers and directors of the corporation.
“General Mills” They just lost me! And you won’t find me a Tarjay (Target)or Homo Depo either.
Who promoted him to General, anyway?
Thanks for the list. Most of those brandnames I don’t buy anyway but will be adding them to my ban list.
What I do not understand is if a liberal individual or individuals who work for a company wants to support a certain issue, they are free to do so as individuals. But why do they insist on dragging their company into it? It’s blatantly unfair to those who may disagree with them yet have to earn a living also and work at the same company.
LOL. that’s what I call the orange box store ,too.
I’m surprised they don’t fly a rainbow flag at all their stores. Especially here in MN. I go out of my way to go to Lowes and Menards.
