Oreo - No Longer Favorite Cookie
Oreo (Kraft Foods) is joining others in supporting Gay Pride. This month is LGBT Pride month and only time will tell if Oreo's support will continue. The company announced its support for same sex marriage on the Oreo Cookie Facebook page with a picture of a rainbow version of their famous cookie. Oreo's Facebook thread read, "Proudly Support Love!" with a graphic that read "June 25| Pride."
The cookie maker is quick to point out that the picture is simply an ad, and doesn't depict a true product. 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.
Moms are aware that Kraft manufacturers a long list of popular products, but Kraft needs to know that there are competitors that make similar products. Moms also know that store brand products will help the grocery bill in this tough economy.
As we know, this stand has not gone well for other companies. For those who do not know, JC Penney (JCP) has parted ways with their president, Michael Francis, after only eight short months. JCP CEO, Ron Johnson, admitted in a recent statement that their Father's Day sales were a bust. "Penney's shares fell 8.8% Tuesday (after Francis' departure was announced) to their lowest level in a year, and store traffic was down 10%." This is in addition to their huge, first quarter loss. According to the Wall Street Journal, "J.C. Penney posted a $163 million loss and said sales fell 20% in the first three months of its fiscal year."
This loss should tell companies that siding with radical homosexuals has its price. Another example is Ford Motor companies. Obviously, the company's far-Left approach is driving away shoppers and its executives. Whether J.C. Penney will learn from its mistakes is yet to be seen. But JCP's freefall should serve as a warning to other companies before they decide to cater to homosexuals and their sinful lifestyle choices.
There are plenty of cookies on the market for moms to buy for their families that do not support liberal causes. We have a choice. Kraft's brands include Oreo, Cadbury, Maxwell House, and Nabisco.
One Million Moms will continue to support companies in the future with full understanding where they stand on principles and morality. We will choose to stay away from those who do not support moral decency.
Kraft needs to hear from you. Supporting the homosexual agenda verses remaining neutral in the cultural war is just bad business. If Christians cannot find corporate neutrality with Kraft then they will vote with their pocketbook and support companies that are neutral. Send your email letter to Oreo (Kraft Foods) now!
