...and they lose

Interesting little article from LifeSiteNews.com. Here's the gist of it; (Emphasis mine)
Pepsi Gives $1,000,000 to Advance Homosexualist Agenda

By Thaddeus M. Baklinski

January 2, 2009 (LifeSIteNews.com) - Soft drink giant PepsiCo, which also owns Frito Lay chips, Tropicana orange juice, Gatorade and Quaker oatmeal, has given a million dollars in the past two years to organizations which promote homosexuality, and forces its employees to attend sexual orientation and gender identity/expression classes.

$500,000 went to the Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays' (PFLAG) "Straight for Equality" program which, according to PFLAG's website (http://community.pflag.org/Document.Doc?id=160), "will be used to expand workplace training."

Jacqueline Millan, director of PepsioCo Corporate Contributions, said in a PepsiCo bulletin, "We are delighted to continue our partnership with PFLAG. The Straight for Equality in the Workplace training program is unique in that it is promoting the necessary message of inclusion to untapped groups within the local community, and that is a crucial step towards building a healthy work environment."

Pepsi also gave $500,000 to the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), a group that describes itself as "America's largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality," according to an American Family Association (AFA) report.

The AFA indicated that both HRC and PFLAG supported efforts in California to defeat Proposition 8, which defined marriage as being between a man and a woman. HRC, the homosexual group financially supported by Pepsi, gave $2.3 million to defeat Prop 8.

The AFA has launched a petition and boycott campaign focused on demanding that Pepsi "remain neutral in the culture war."

"PepsiCo has refused a request by AFA to remain neutral in the culture war," said AFA Chairman Donald Wildmon in an Action Alert. "The company indicated that it will continue major financial support of homosexual organizations," adding that "Pepsi refuses to give money to any pro-family organization that opposes the homosexual agenda."

Wildmon explained that the AFA wrote Pepsi two times (on October 14 and October 29) requesting a meeting to discuss Pepsi's support of homosexual groups, subsequently receiving a "condescending letter" from Paul Boykas, director of public policy, in which Boykas refused to address Pepsi's support of the homosexual agenda.

I sent a letter yesterday to Pepsico. I'm not quick on my mental feet when conversing, I've the voice of a New York thug and get less than diplomatic at the drop of a hat, so I'll always opt for the written word.

But however it gets done, we need for our voices to be heard.

In the meantime, I'll keep drinking my homemade lemonade.

Does Coca Cola support this too?

Yes Coca Cola does it too, and many other companies. It is the new hipster corporate thing to do because they think it is a market segment for them. Stupids don't realize that the promulgation of the gay lifestyle does not expand in the same exponent that the heterosexual lifestyle. True boobs of the first order.

Learn to brew sweet tea.

Bring 8 cups of water to a boil. Remove from heat and add 8 teabags (3 "family/iced tea" bags). Steep for 5-6 minutes. I squeeze mine out, but that's purely optional. Do NOT let the tea steep for too long; by 15 minutes it will be getting quite bitter. Add 1.5 cups of sugar and stir. Then add either cold water or ice to make it a gallon. Serve over ice. Lemon or lime juice is optional.

I've also done it with green tea bags, but it becomes MUCH more important to not over-steep.

What is a "sexual orientation and gender identity/expression class"?

Do they give you a list of words and phrases that you are not supposed to use at work - "butt pirate", "rectum ranger", "carpet muncher (for the ladies)", "donut machine", "turd burglar", etc. Don't rag on the homos. Be polite. Got it.

I mean, that's just common sense, and good manners, like not using the n-word when talking to the President-Elect, or going to a Rabbi's birthday party dressed as Adolf Hitler, or telling your next door neighbour Ahmed, that his "prophet" was a bloodthirsty pedophile.

We've gotta have lessons in this stuff now?

You know, it would solve a lot of problems if people learned to STFU about what they do in the bedroom.

Pepsi like all the others who fund the queer agenda do so because of the Big Money queers out there who use their money and threats to get their way. And because queers work there like everywhere else, poisoning the fabric of our society. If we have queers in our own government, you know its an up-hill battle. The only thing queers fear and hate at the same time is the power of Scripture and the Truth it tells. They don't want to Hear the Truth! And they don't want the people to believe in it. So, they're trying their darnest to make it disappear.
