    AFA Action Alert

    PepsiCo supports gay magazine with advertising

    Company sends an "in your face" message to those opposing gay marriage

    June 2, 2009




    Dear Larry,

    Taking an "in your face" approach, PepsiCo sent a public message of support for the homosexual agenda. The company ran a full-page ad in the June/July issue of Out, a semi-pornographic homosexual magazine. icon_rolleyes.gif The magazine is filled with page after page of nude and semi-nude photographs of men in suggestive positions.

    AFA has asked PepsiCo to be neutral in the culture war, including homosexual marriage, but the company has consistently refused to do so. The ad supporting Out was a clear indication that the company is standing fast in its support of the homosexual agenda.

    Consider these actions:

    PepsiCo is a member of the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce. (Ford, McDonald’s and Wal-Mart withdrew from the NGLCC when asked to do so. PepsiCo refused)
    PepsiCo requires its members to attend diversity training classes promoting the acceptance of homosexuality.
    PepsiCo financially supports "gay pride parades" in cities across America.
    PepsiCo gave a total of $1,000,000 to the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG). HRC gave hundreds of thousands of dollars in an effort to legalize homosexual marriage in California.
    PepsiCo uses its TV commercials to promote the homosexual lifestyle.


    Take Action!
    Call PepsiCo's Board of Directors Concern Line at 1-866-626-0633 and tell the board of directors that you are boycotting PepsiCo and asking others to do the same. If there is no answer or you get a recording, stay on the line until a live operator comes on.
    Sign the Boycott Pepsi Pledge. After signing the pledge, please call Pepsi (914-253-2000 or 1-800-433-2652) and tell the company you will boycott its products until it stops promoting the homosexual agenda.
    Call the Pepsi bottler nearest you and ask it to stop supporting the homosexual agenda.
    Pepsi’s products include Pepsi soft drinks, Frito-Lay chips and snacks (800-352-4477), Quaker Oats (800-367-6287), Tropicana (800-237-7799) and Gatorade (800-884-2867).
    Print the Boycott Pepsi Pledge and distribute it.
    Forward this e-mail to your friends and family so they will know about Pepsi’s support of the homosexual agenda. Millions of people are not aware of Pepsi’s support of homosexual organizations.

    I do wish someone would send ME the Homosexual Agenda. I seem to have been left off the mailing list. How can I participate if I don't have a copy? icon_rolleyes.gif

    These right wing conservatives are getting very desparate with all their half truths and bold faced lies about major corporations supporting gay rights causes. Out is not a pornographic or semi-pornographic gay magazine. This is valid proof how much these narrow-minded, bible thumping screwballs really know which is obviously nothing. A better more appropriate name for the American Family Association would be the American Fucktard Association. These right wing idiots don't know when to come in from out of the rain.

    Their idea of "neutral in the culture WAR" seems to be only advertising in what the AFA deems appropriate. Now is that neutral? By advertising anywhere and everywhere they think they can sell product seems pretty neutral to me.

    PepsiCo sponsors four more gay pride parades


    June 18, 2009

    Dear Larry,

    Following their sponsorship of the New York Gay Pride Parade scheduled for June 27, PepsiCo has agreed to sponsor four more gay pride parades – Atlanta, Dallas, Phoenix and Cleveland. Click here to see the kind of parade PepsiCo is sponsoring.

    PepsiCo shows its employees caught in this destructive and harmful lifestyle no compassion, no support to help them leave it. Rather,PepsiCo spends huge sums of money to promote the lifestyle.

    AFA has asked PepsiCo to be neutral in the culture war regarding the homosexual agenda and the legalization of homosexual marriage, but PepsiCo adamantly refuses to do so.

    PepsiCo requires employees to attend sexual orientation and gender diversity training. It supports homosexual groups with gifts totaling over $1 million. PepsiCo refuses to give any money to groups such as Parents and Friends of Ex-Gay and Gays (PFOX) that work to help individuals change their sexual behavior.

    Take Action!
