    I really wish the political structure could stop using the word "wing" to identify groups of people with certain viewpoints.

    As a pilot, I enjoy the stability of having both the left and right wings. It's kinda hard to fly without them both attached. But as a society, I think we could function much better without the right wing.

    True, you need a right wing .... generally

    A true Christian would not only expect as much from the secular world but they wouldn't make a stink about it. It's not the job of the Christian to change the world, but to live as an example in it. *sigh*

    To me, it's a strange paradox. Until gays and gay marriage are widely accepted, it may seem like pandering to see gay couples in commercials--but that might be only because it's still not common to see it at all in commercials, and therefore it "draws the eye."

    Though I agree, using sex to advertise a product, whether gay or not, always strikes me as silly. "YES. I will buy your product because the act of sodemy compels me!!"

    I like buying things on the merit of the product's quality...unless they're saying their yogurt is good enough to be eaten during love making? Or, in place of it? Or...something?

    More believable if it were bull dykes in a Home Depot commercial. I just loves me some stereotypes.

    Judge not...
    Cast not your pearls before swine...
    Love your neighbor...

    Chobani advertised married lesbians in yogurt? Is this a new product? I’d be upset too. I thought they just put fruit in there.

    OK, I'm gonna play my age card (and not for the first time).

    When Black civil rights were finally moving forward in the 1960s US TV commercials began to appear featuring Black people. You can't imagine today how radical and disturbing that was to much of White America. There was debate whether consumers in the Old South, and elsewhere, would boycott those products, and whether these ads were business suicide.

    I still see ads featuring Black people today, so I guess maybe not business suicide after all. Perhaps that's what helped make Blacks appear not so alien to Whites? Not with all Whites, as we see with this Charleston horror. The Old South will go down fighting, right to the bitter end, Confederate flags flying and all.

    And what did those ads cause? They helped make being Black less strange to Whites, but the everyday norm in everyday situations. Most Whites hardly blink today when they see a Black spokesperson on TV, or in some print ad for a product. I can promise you that wasn't the case over 50 years ago in the US.

    Now we're going through the same thing with LGBT. For me it's very much déjà vu. The same Right Wing forces are opposing us that opposed Blacks when I was a teenager. I hope they fail once again. They won't fail entirely all at once, they still can hurt people, as Charleston proves.

    But failing over time, a sluggish process, unfortunately. So that advertisements featuring LGBT couples are a good thing, starting the slow acceptance of a minority group all over again.

    The pilot of that aircraft is one of my current flight instructors. I'm perfectly familiar with the aeronautical definition of "wing."

    However, I strongly disagree with using the word "wing" to identify political opinions.

    That's what I was referring to. icon_wink.gif

    I just wonder what their interest in this would be? Would Right Wing Christian groups even KNOW what Chobani natural yogurt is?

    They need to get worked up when they see lesbians in ads for lite beer, pickup trucks, mobile homes, Walmart, WWE, barbecue ribs places, NASCAR, and anything that has Six Flags on it. icon_razz.gif

    Understood. That's why it was time for a punny.

    However, some around here even capitalize "Right Wing".

    All Christians. There isn't a Christian alive or that has ever lived that hasn't fallen short and failed to live up to the tenets of the faith. That's why they are to seek for forgiveness. There isn't a person - Christian, Hindu, Muslim, Jew, etc. - who hasn't failed to live the tenets of their faith 100%.

    May be they are concerned about mixing women and dairy. Is this a dietary prohibition? Or is it fish and dairy?

    Why are church groups okay with making Deviled Eggs or Devil's Cake for a church potluck but against yogurt with Lesbians?
