Though it’s hardly news that One Million Moms has taken issue with the adorable Campbell’s Soup ad featuring real-life gay dads, we’d be remiss not to highlight the stink they’ve predictably raised, if for no other reason than to point out how sadly out of touch they are.
“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, the organization explains in a call to action.
“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.”
Congrats, OMM. You’ve managed to suck the fun out of silly voices, playful meals and Star Wars in one fell swoop. We don’t even want to imagine what dinner is like at these moms’ homes.
They go on to argue that, “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.'”
The force is very, very weak with these ones, so go ahead and rally your eleven members to boycott Campbell’s. Nobody will so much as notice.
