A new advertising campaign for Campbell's is making one group of Christian bigots reconsider using Cream of Mushroom Soup as a staple in their casseroles this fall.
One Million Moms are at it again. This time, it's over a TV ad campaign for Campbell's Soup that they feel is anything but Mmm Mmm Good. The commercial in question features two gay dads, a kid and a questionable Darth Vader impersonation. They are demanding that the company pull the campaign immediately.
Their latest rant reads:
A homosexual "married" couple is featured prominently with a young boy (their son) in the new Campbell's Soup advertisement. Campbell's #RealRealLife campaign aims to change the face of the American family. It starts off with the first man feeding soup to the little boy and in a "Star Wars" Darth Vader voice says, "Luke, I am your father." Then the other man enters the scene and says, "No, Luke, I am your father." How confusing for this little boy and for all children viewing this commercial. Obviously, Campbell's is sending the message that homosexual men are raising children, whom they wouldn't have if a woman wasn't involved, and they are ok with it.
Campbell's Soup is glorifying this unnatural marriage. One Million Moms believes family is based on love, but this does not justify normalizing sin. 1MM does not agree with the need for Campbell's to support same sex marriages or couples.
Companies should advertise the quality of their products. It is no longer about the product but about their cause. They should not be highlighting who is attracted to whom or who sleeps with whom. This is a marketing decision Campbell's will regret.
This gay-inclusive commercial is attempting to desensitize viewers. There is concern about the way this ad is pushing the LGBT agenda, but an even greater concern is the way that they are attempting to redefine "family" and "real marriage."
A trip to the One Million Moms website shows that in addition to Campbell's Soup, the holier than thou group of media busybodies currently have bones to pick with Doritos, Staples, Office Depot and The Muppets.
