Sign the Petition! NOM Announces Protest of General Mills

 

Email Header Image

Dear Marriage Supporter,

Just a few months ago, Starbucks announced that gay marriage was "core" to the beliefs of their company and formally endorsed same-sex marriage in Washington State. NOM responded by organizing a protest of Starbucks—and nearly 45,000 people have now signed the DumpStarbucks petition.

Well, the radical left of corporate America is at it again...and this time it's General Mills. If you had a hard time figuring out what coffee has to do with gay marriage, good luck figuring out what the connection is with breakfast cereals. But for whatever reason, General Mills has entered the Culture War, announcing its corporate opposition to the marriage amendment in Minnesota on the ballot this November which would define marriage as the union of one man and one woman.

Supporter, this is extremely serious! We cannot allow Corporate America throw its weight behind the gay marriage movement!

Please take 60 seconds to sign our petition to let General Mills know that backing gay marriage is just bad business!

The DumpStarbucks.com petition helped begin a movement that is sending a powerful message to corporate America: Don't Mess With Marriage!

Apparently, General Mills missed that message. So, please, send it to them right now so there can be no uncertainty. Go sign our petition asking General Mills to reconsider their ill-advised decision to back the same-sex marriage movement.

We need you now more than ever as we are reaching a "line in the sand" moment—we cannot allow corporate America to throw its prestige, influence, power and money behind same-sex marriage.

    Randy, you're right, gays and lesbians aren't a species unto themselves, they are human beings just like you.

    Emily, I will not support ANY company that intentionally ellienate their employees and customers by supportng gay rights for political and financial purposes, even if it means doing without certain products or services. We are at WAR with the LGBT group, we must realize this now before it is to late to fight back.... We did not start the culture War but we must end it on our terms, and sooner then later. Buckle up, get involved, and do the right thing to protect marriage and our children and their future children for a stable society.
    BE NOT AFRAID but STAND YOUR GROUND... MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU ALWAYS, LOL!

    @Rick

    "your are going to boycott a product you don't use? Priceless!"

    A rather ignorant response. I can't afford it so I won't buy it. Hardly a boycott.

    Think before you type on your keyboard next time.

    An economic union with feelings otherwise known as a same-sex friendship is not a marriage, plain and simple.

    @Shawn,

    Changing the meaning of words so as to lend an appearance of acceptability to your depravity only serves to prove that you yourself know your perversion is indefensible on its own merits.

    M. Jones: "An economic union with feelings otherwise known as a same-sex friendship is not a marriage" Huh?? How are they the same? My same-sex friendship with my best friend is not an economic or sexual union. I don't financially support him, or share a mortgage or split the cable bill. And we definitely do not have sex. What a silly statement.

    All supporting of gay rights, and that's just a few. How many more before you realise you're on the wrong side of history?
    Boycott them all. I dare you.

    There is a difference between providing benefits to gay employees and customers and making the legal redefinition (de-gendering) of marriage a corporate objective. The former does not concern me. The latter is a piece of political activism that attempts to legally redefine everyone's marriage and affects all of family law. That does concern me.

    How many of the above corporations have made legally redefining (de-gendering) marriage as a core corporate objective?

    Thanks for the list, JamesF. That's actually quite helpful!

    I'm surprised about Marriott, though, given that it's a Mormon-owned corporation.

    @ Publuis, concur

    I said it prior way above, of course you articulated better:

    @ 29,to all you SSM supporters, there is a (big) difference when companies offer benefits to SSU employees (or supportting just unions as other trivial SSU sponsorship), and those companies funding the opposition to destroy the definition marriage. We will pick and choose our battles carefully... As for Microsoft, the last time I checked, they don't sell computers but software, and I have been boycotting the company for more then 10 years now.
    ALL WE NEED IS FOR A FEW OF THOSE SPONSORS TO GO OUT OF BUSINESS THEIR CONTINUE SUPPORT FOR SSM OR CHANGE THEIR COURSE TO NEUTRAL, THE REST WILL FOLLOW SUIT OR EVOLVE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF HISTORY.

    James F,
    Now provide us with an "actual" list of companies who are participating in redefining marriage.
    But for the record I disagree with any company supporting homosexuality and would not directly, with the foreknowledge, support their business, period.

    "The DumpStarbucks.com petition helped begin a movement that is sending a powerful message to corporate America: Don't Mess With Marriage!"

    Err I'm confused, last I checked Starbucks still has continued to support Same-Sex Marriage, and the Dump Marriage campaign only has 45,280 supporters...yup that's sure going to send those corporate haters of marriage a message...a message that anything NOM does has absolutely no real power. Just lies and insanity. I find it hilarious they even think General Mills will lose much revenue if around the same amount start dumping their product. Besides, you're still providing revenue when you purchase one to dump it. Get a new idea NOM, because these are just getting old.
