One Million Moms find gay pride Oreo distasteful

One Million Moms condemn rainbow filled Oreo cookie
30 June 2012

Kraft, the maker of the the iconic Oreo cookie, is in trouble with the organization One Million Moms. The anti-gay organization is incensed with a rainbow colored cookie to honor Gay Pride Month.

‘The cookie maker is quick to point out that the picture is simply an ad, and doesn’t depict a true product,’ the group argues on its website as reported by Huffington Post. ‘But it announced to American consumers where it stands on the controversial "gay" marriage issue nonetheless. Homosexuals are weighing in, hoping Oreo makes the fake cookie real.’

The photo appeared on the cookie’s Facebook page earlier this week (26 June). By the next day it had 200,000 ‘likes’ and approximately 250 comments.

One Million Moms is asking for supporters to boycott all Kraft products, including Cadbury, Maxwell House, and Nabisco.

The group has no patience for companies that appear to be gay friendly. The group has gone after JC Penney (twice), Urban Outfitters, and The Gap. JC Penney earned its double OMM’s condemnation because it hired Ellen DeGeneres and had an ad that featured two fathers with their children.

‘She shares the same values that we do in our company,’ said Ron Johnson, the company’s CEO, in response to the Ellen flap. ‘Our company was founded 110 years ago on The Golden Rule, which is about treating people fair and square, just like you would like to be treated yourself. And we think Ellen represents the values of our company and the values that we share.’
