Company ignores two requests from AFA to discuss Pepsi's support of gay groups.

Pepsi has given Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) a half-million dollars to help push the homosexual agenda in the workplace.

Pepsi has a long tradition of financial support for homosexual groups. According to Jacqueline Millan, director of PepsiCo Corporate Contributions, "We are delighted to continue our partnership with PFLAG...(in) promoting the necessary message of inclusion to untapped groups...and that is a crucial step toward building a healthy working environment."

Despite the fact that 30 states have passed constitutional amendments defining marriage as being between a man and a woman, Pepsi continues to support the efforts by same-sex groups pushing for homosexual marriage.

AFA wrote Pepsi on October 14 and again on October 29 asking the company to remain neutral in the culture war. Pepsi didn't care enough to respond to the AFA letters. Pepsi's lack of response indicates the company plans to continue support for the homosexual agenda.

Take Action

E-mail Chrm. Indra K. Nooyi. Tell her that you expect Pepsi to stop supporting the gay agenda.

After sending your e-mail, please call Pepsi (914-253-2000) and ask the company to remain neutral in the culture war.

Forward this e-mail to your friends and family so they will know about Pepsi's support of the gay agenda.
Pepsi's products include Pepsi soft drinks, Frito-Lay chips (800-352-4477), Quaker Oats (800-367-6287), Tropicana (800-237-7799) and Gatorade (800-367-6287).

For some reason I'm craving for a cold, refreshing bottle of Pepsi right now...

Odd...me too.

Fundies are organizing boycotts and petitions, yet the gays are the ones with an agenda. These people have no shame.

For every bottle of pepsi you don't buy, I'll buy two.

Is this how the fundies will die off? Starving themselves after the rest of the world accepts gays?

Time for dinner!

Drinking Pepsi makes your kids gay.

Thanks for giving me my shopping list, except that I don't like soda pop.

How many more fundie staples do we need to get before they run off to some abandoned island to form their own society?

Also, I find it hypocritical to call oneself a Family oriented group, when your doing your best to shatter some families, and prevent others from forming in the first place.

Pepsi didn't care enough to respond to the AFA letters.

They were not obligated to respond or even acknowledge your petition so don't personalize the situation by saying they "don't care." They don't have to care. They don't have to do anything but make their product within the laws and regulations of the industry. Period.

Pepsi's lack of response indicates the company plans to continue support for the homosexual agenda.

That's your inference of the situation which is not necessarily what Pepsi intends to do.

you expect Pepsi to stop supporting the gay agenda.

One tries to influence not by pestering and bullying the company to change to your whims and desires. You do that buy not buying their product in the free marketplace. See how easy that was?

Further: What gives you the right to knock on someone else's door and demand they conform their lives to your beliefs, values, etc.? That's pretty damn arrogant!

Pepsi Co makes Mountain Dew, right?

Okay, good. Now I feel a little better for drinking that stuff.

I'll go one better and am typing this in my Apple Mac Pro ....

If they've had a "long tradition" of supporting gays, why are you only now taking action? Oh wait, it's just a knee-jerk response, as usual.

It's enough to make a guy give up Coca-Cola, even if the lime-flavored stuff is the best.

In a manner of speaking, yes. The more stubborn and intolerant they are will only marginalize them further to the rest of society. What scares me is that eventually (shit, it's happening already) these people will be calling for civil war against the secular population for absolute control of the USA.

Interesting that by "ask the company to remain neutral in the culture war" they actually mean "tacitly support our bigotry"...
You can bet that if Pepsi were giving their money to a fundie xtian group instead they wouldn't be demanding neutrality.

BRB, stocking up on Pepsi and Lay's.

I only drink Diet Pepsi and Diet Mountain Dew, now I will buy some more in order to support Pepsico!

11/13/2008 10:24:48 PM

The Lazy One

Be right back- running to 7-11 to buy all the Pepsi and Mountain Dew I can carry.

11/13/2008 10:25:25 PM



I AM SO SICK OF THE AFA AND THIS FUCKTARDED CULTURE WAR SHIT! THERE IS NO FUCKING GAY AGENDA YOU INSANE MORONS!

Every day these so called "Family" groups (who ironically perpetuate the destruction of families based on silly, useless prejudices) exist, I lose more of my very limited supply of faith in humanity.

AFA, I hope you know that you disgust me and many others. Please cease your support for the "Bigot Agenda".

...I'm switching to Pepsi.

We should c all or email these people and support their support of the "gay agenda."

Yeah, gays have the agenda when KKKristians are the ones who do stuff like this.

11/13/2008 10:38:29 PM

aaa

Finally, a second good reason to drink pepsi.

Not to mention calling a group the American anything and then declaring an inquisition against much of the American economy.

a mind far far away

It's good to see a large and respected corporation such as Pepsi doing the right thing. I always knew there was a reason I liked Pepsi over Coke.

Awesome! I go to a college that serves Pepsi! Yay Aquafina!
