BUYcott Pepsi and Campbell's

Feel Free to Email, Distribute and Cross Post!

Once More the American Family Association, AKA "A Leader in The Anti-Gay/Anti-Civil Rights Movement" is attacking another business who is inclusive and welcoming of ALL employees and their families.

Instead of soup, they are now going after Pepsi Co., which includes Frito Lay, Quaker Oats, Tropicana Juices and Gatorade and calling for a boycott of their products.

These are the things Pepsi is doing as a business to anger them so much:

They recieved the 2008 New Freedom Initiative Award for enhancing participation of Americans with Disabilities in the 21st Century Workforce, and PepsiCo received a 100% rating for the fifth year in a row from the Human Rights Campaign Foundation today when it released its 2009 Corporate Equality Index. Pepsi is a huge leader in the area of transgendered rights, a segment of our community that often gets "thrown under the bus" even by our own organizations.

Pepsi is also a leader in stoping the spread of HIV/AIDS. From their website; "Our policy outlines an approach that will be applied across the diverse array of markets in which we operate – from South Africa, where we have made very important strides, including establishment of a comprehensive HIV/AIDS testing and treatment program, to the scores of other countries in which we are still in the early stages of addressing the problem."

The Spew From AFA's website

"PepsiCo has refused a request by AFA to remain neutral in the culture war. The company indicated that it will continue major financial support of homosexual organizations. AFA wrote Pepsi two times (on October 14 and October 29) requesting a meeting to discuss Pepsi's neutrality in the culture war. [basically Pepsi told AFA they weren't changing any of their policies, nor would they meet with the hate group]

On November 17, AFA received a condescending letter (dated Nov. 7) from Paul Boykas, director, public policy, in which he refused to address Pepsi's support of the homosexual agenda.

In the last two years, Pepsi has given $500,000 to the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and $500,000 to the Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG). The $1,000,000 was to be used to help promote homosexuality in the workplace. Pepsi refuses to give money to any pro-family organization that opposes the homosexual agenda. Plus, every homosexual organization we know of is overwhelmingly pro-abortion. (notice how they threw that in? really get the masses enraged!) [AHA!!!! They aren't getting any of the big bucks so HRC and PFLAG can't have any either]

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. [and AFA did not support yes on H8?]

Pepsi forces (requires) all employees to attend sexual orientation and gender identity diversity training where they are taught to accept homosexuality." [Let's talk about what force really is...AFA and it's supporters force people into "Ex-Gay" therapy!!!!! HELLO??]
