>Boycott Pepsi

>I am boycotting Pepsi and all products made by them. Details can be found here. Pepsi has chosen a side in the culture war, and there is no reason for them to do so. They are a company that makes pop. Just pipe down and sell your pop. Homosexual rights has nothing to do with pop! I guess the upside is that now I’m not drinking Diet Mountain Dew like it’s going out of style.

Here is the text of a letter that I am mailing today to my local Pepsi bottler:

March 18, 2009

Pepsi Hoosier Refreshement
PO Box 449
Logansport, IN 46947
Terry Kubsch, President

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing this letter to inform you that as of January 28th 2009 I have purchased neither Pepsi products nor any affiliated products (Frito-Lay chips, Quaker Oats, Gatorade, and Tropicana juices). I have joined this boycott because of your company’s overt support for the homosexual agenda. You donated a million dollars to GLBT causes, and are making commercials that make homosexuality seem like an acceptable option to kids.

I am not disputing the fact that some people feel homosexuality is acceptable. I am not disputing the fact that homosexuals deserve to live in freedom in our society without threat of physical harm. I DO however dispute the goal of Pepsico to shove the “acceptability” of homosexuality down our collective throats. I resent your support for organizations that openly promote a lifestyle that I believe to be violent and morally wrong.

Please let me clue you in on something: your company makes soft drinks (among other things). Soft drinks have nothing to do with sex or “sexual orientation.” There are hundreds of charities that have no moral downside (such as Habitat for Humanity, The American Heart Association, American Cancer Society, MDA, the Red Cross, etc) that you could have donated your million dollars to, without threat of boycott. I don’t understand why you seem to think that a company that makes soft drinks should be on the “cutting edge” of societal change. I don’t know why you have decided corporately to promote the homosexual agenda, but as a lifelong Mountain Dew (and Diet Dew) drinker, I can tell you that I haven’t had any kind of Dew since January. I refuse to support your company so long as you donate money to homosexual organizations and create advertisements that promote this lifestyle.

Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,

(signed by me)

    >I believe sir that you are a bigot, if not a person who has homosexual feelings which you will not acknowledge so you attack gay people. God loves all his children. He made us all. Do you plan to boycott Him also?
