Hate Group Leader Tony Perkins Calls For Boycott Of Betty Crocker Over Same-Sex Wedding Cakes
Because his and NOM's boycott of Starbucks hasn't exactly gone so well (Starbucks would say otherwise; its stocks are through the roof!), Family Research Council head Tony Perkins has set his sites on poor old Betty Crocker.
During the Thursday broadcast of his radio show, Tony asks his sheeple to boycott the cherished American brand for supporting loving couples in Minnesota.
At Betty Crocker, the only thing they're mixing up is their priorities. Hi, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. If you ask conservatives, Betty Crocker's latest promotion is a recipe for disaster. This summer, the famous dessert line decided to jump on the same-sex "marriage" bandwagon-and bring cakes to celebrate. In Minnesota, where parent company General Mills is headquartered, Betty Crocker decided to donate wedding cakes to the first homosexual couples who exchanged vows on the first day that counterfeit marriage was legal. "Betty celebrates all families," said manager Laura Forero. "We don't want to be old fashioned," the company explained. Unfortunately for General Mills, the majority of Americans think natural marriage is anything but old fashioned. And they've made it tough on companies like Target, Starbucks, and JC Penney who disagree. Know where your money is going. When you're at the store, think outside the Betty Crocker box!

The folks at Betty Crocker are probably ecstatic that Tony has directed his homophobic ire in their direction, given the sales and stock bumps that usually follow his expressed hatred of truly American company!
