Christians Outraged as Kellogg Uses Tony the Tiger in ‘Gay Pride’ Advertisement.
“Wear your stripes with pride,” an advertisement featuring the Frosted Flakes icon, was reportedly published in the Atlanta, Georgia pride guide last month to coincide with the city’s homosexual pride march and festival. Kellogg had served as one of the sponsors for the event.
In addition to Frosted Flakes, Kellogg is also the maker of Fruit Loops, Rice Krispies, Apple Jacks and Special K, as well as Pop Tarts, Eggo waffles and Nutri-Grain granola bars.
But Kellogg is not the first cereal company to openly express its support for homosexuality. As previously reported, in 2012, General Mills announced its support for same-sex “marriage” and its disdain for any laws that would attempt to prevent it. CEO Ken Powell appeared at a Minnesota homosexual pride event declaring his opposition for a then-proposed state constitutional amendment that would enshrine marriage as being solely between a man and a woman.
Ken Charles, General Mills’ Vice President of Diversity, also issued a letter throughout the company, outlining that he believed homosexual “marriage” would benefit employee productivity, and that if the amendment passed, it would be more difficult to retain skilled workers.
“I am proud to see our company join the ranks of local and national employers speaking out for inclusion,” Charles stated. “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.”
General Mills markets well-known cereal brands such as Cheerios, Wheaties, Chex and Total. It is also responsible for products from brands like Yoplait, Pillsbury, Betty Crocker, Hamburger Helper and Green Giant.
Kellogg and General Mills join a plethora of companies that have actively promoted homosexuality, including Starbucks, Nabisco, Betty Crocker, Campbell’s and Burger King.
Like certain coffeehouses, brewers, pizzerias, fast-food joints, other cereal makers, satellite-TV providers, and others, they don’t want our business as much as they want progs’ business, and don’t care if they alienate us.
