Culture Wars: AFA Calls for Pepsi Boycott
The American Family Association (AFA), who claims to stand for "traditional family values", is targeting Pepsi for its pro-homosexual support.
The AFA, in an Action Alert to its more than two-million members, urges supporters to sign an online pledge to boycott Pepsi products and to call the company to tell it “to stop promoting the homosexual agenda.”
“PepsiCo has refused a request by AFA to remain neutral in the culture war,” the Action Alert said.
“In the last two years, Pepsi has given $500,000 to the Human Rights Campaign and $500,000 to the Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays. The $1,000,000 was to be used to help promote homosexuality in the workplace,” the AFA said.
“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,” according to the Action Alert.
Previous AFA boycotts include McDonald's, Disney, Cincinati based Proctor&Gable, Kraft, and Ford automakers in 2005. The AFA claimed success in the McDonald's boycott when McDonald's agreed to end its support for the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, and claimed a victory when Ford began pulling its ads from LGBT publications.
