The day I saw this* circulating on Facebook, I couldn’t believe it.
No. Wait. Yes, I could. Right now virtually all businesses are jumping on the yawn-with-me marketing strategy of doing what everyone else is doing. Endorsing the gay lifestyle has become the corporate “in” thing to do. Jumping off a bridge, anyone? Bo-ring.
At first, I wanted to write a scathing piece where I could share some angry thoughts I had about why in the world are businesses openly taking a stand on such polarizing issues. Then I calmed down. Thank God for endorphins from nursing.
So, when I found out that Oreos have apparently been “in the closet” for some time, it crossed a line. Dude, it so crossed a line. I don’t even care that much about Oreos. It’s the principle of the thing. We’ve decided that inanimate tasty treats can take a stand on polarizing issues, abandoning those who morally oppose. And for what? Why? To be trendy? Can’t we just leave the sweet treats to be neutral??
So, rather than bore you with a scathing piece, I will simply ask readers – why have we dragged desserts into this nonsense? Can’t I just have a daggone sweet treat without having to worry if it’s pro-life or pro-abortion, if it endorses the homosexual lifestyle or not? What’s next? Will my generic chocolate cake mix be pro-euthanasia? Why not? That’s about the extent of the ridiculousness going on.
In any case, like him or lump him, watch this clip of the Colbert Report and have a laugh.
