Well, it should come as no surprise that OMM is now urging its followers to contact Kraft and demand that they discontinue the "offensive" campaign: Last week's issue of People Magazine had the most disgusting ad on the inside front cover that we have ever seen Kraft produce. A full 2-page ad features a n*ked man lying on a picnic blanket with only a small portion of the blanket barely covering his g*nitals. It is easy to see what the ad is really selling.
A person has to look closely to see the item the company is marketing because the salad dressing bottle is so small next to the male model, picnic basket and other food items. There is also a small Kraft logo in the upper corners with the words "Silverware Optional - Let's Get Zesty." The website getmezesty.com is listed in the bottom corner. Kraft has gone too far and will push away loyal, conservative customers with this new ad campaign.
Christians will not be able to buy Kraft dressings or any of their products until they clean up their advertising. The consumers they are attempting to attract - women and mothers - are the very ones they are driving away. Who will want Kraft products in their fridge or pantry if this vulgarity is what they represent?
One Million Moms cannot get over the gall of this company.
It is unnecessary for Kraft to use s*x to sell salad dressing!
Can you get over OMM's gall trying to make salad dressing boring again?Continue reading

This is based on his own totally reliable research that shows one in four Americans are gay, and most are millionaires. "When I tell people this they think I must be kidding, and must have made this up cause I have a vested financial interest in peddling crap like this," he laughs. "I can see Nike getting on board real quick," he says. "They have a history of championing diversity in their advertising.
They sponsored that South African athlete guy without any feet, and that worked out real well for them. "Also they employ a helluva lot of children in South-east Asia to make their clothes - I think that shows these dudes really care about the little people." Continue reading
The ad posters read: "Not Gay! Ex-Gay, Post-Gay and Proud. Get over it!" A judge ruled Boris Johnson did not abuse his position as chairman of TfL when he imposed the ban. 'Widespread offence' Mrs Justice Lang, sitting at London's High Court, ruled TfL's process in introducing the ban "was procedurally unfair, in breach of its own procedures and demonstrated a failure to consider the relevant issues".
But that was outweighed by factors against allowing the ad, including that it would "cause grave offence" to those who were gay and was perceived as homophobic, "thus increasing the risk of prejudice and homophobic attacks", said the judge... BBC News. Hahaha!
I haven't seen the full ruling by the judge yet, but surely the main reason these ads shouldn't have been allowed is because they promote junk science and voodoo "cures"?
PS And don't forget the ever hopeless Advertising Standards Authority okayed this campaign.
Astonishing. Continue reading

Club chairman Brian Silk said: Taking home our first trophy is a fantastic achievement for the club. We were up against clubs who have been around a lot longer than us and this shows how far we ve come in a little over two years. On our trip, we didn t just play football, but went out in Bristol for two nights running and we were able to return to Kent on Sunday to secure a hard-fought 3-3 draw with east London s gay-friendly team, Pheonix FC, in a league match.
The club went to Bristol with two teams to play against twelve sides from across southern England, and having made their way to the final of the annual five-a-side competition, they lost 4-2 to the Bristol Panthers. The team dedicated its participation in the tournament to Football v Homophobia s 2013 month of action. They will travel to Lyon next month to participate in their first international tournament.
The club describes itself as: Open to all, regardless of sexuality, ability or experience, who want to play football in a gay-friendly setting. The club is based in Bexleyheath, and football-playing commenced on 15 January 2011 with a kickabout in Danson Park. Last week, the Football v Homophobia campaign sent a toolkit to clubs guiding them in how to combat homophobia and reach out to LGBT fans and players, in a move backed by the England manager and West Ham team.
Writing on the homepage of his website, American international and former Leeds United player, Robbie Rogers, came out, reflecting on his life s dreams and goals, and said that keeping secrets can cause internal damage . Last October, speaking to PinkNews.co.uk, Anton Hysen, the world s only professional openly gay footballer said reasons to do with sponsorship explained the lack of out top division stars. Former England international Gareth Southgate also said he believed footballers were ready to accept gay players in the dressing room.
West Ham footballer, Matt Jarvis, has appeared on the cover of Attitude magazine in January, and gave an interview saying gay footballers should come out, that they would be supported, and that they might even play better if they did.

Kellie Fiedorek, an official with the Alliance Defending Freedom, argued that the bill advances religious intolerance and discrimination towards Illinois citizens with sincerely held religious beliefs. However, advocates who are in favour of the bill testified that it was a matter of treating same-sex couples and heterosexual couples equally under Illinois law. Chicago Democratic Representative Greg Harris said: What same-sex couples in Illinois want for their families is just what you want for your families.
The Reverend Otis Moss III, senior pastor at Chicago s Trinity United Church of Christ, the former church of President Barack Obama added: We are called to live our faith, not legislate our faith It s the charge of civil leaders to ensure that everyone is treated equally. The debate was unusually brief for such a polarising issue and the committee members voted late Tuesday evening. A recent Ipsos poll of Illinois residents has found that half of people living in the state supported a bill to legalise equal marriage, with the percentage in opposition to it much lower.
On Valentine s Day the Illinois Senate, which is controlled by the Democrats, voted 34-21 to approve the bill to legalise same-sex marriage.

The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) received 17 complaints about the ads. Nine complaints said that the ads were offensive, irresponsible and unsuitable because they showed lesbians kissing. Ten complainants said the ads were sexually explicit .
Two said that the phrase Love Thyself , combined with the image, was offensive on religious grounds. Harvey Nichols responded by saying that the Love Thyself slogan and the image itself made it clear that the ads featured one woman kissing her mirror image, rather than of lesbian couples. They went on to argue that even if the ad had featured two different women kissing, images of lesbians were not offensive or inappropriate and should be accepted by the ASA.
Harvey Nichols said: The advertising industry should be in the vanguard of those promoting and supporting the equalities espoused by anti-discrimination laws, including those concerning sexual orientation. On Wednesday the ASA said it would not uphold the complaints. The ASA said: We acknowledged that some complainants had interpreted the posters differently and had understood them to depict a lesbian kiss.
One person also mentioned a young child who had not identified that the kiss was between one woman and her mirror image.
Although we recognised that some people might have found what they perceived to be a portrayal of a lesbian kiss distasteful, we considered that a reference to homosexuality in an ad would be unlikely in itself to cause widespread or serious offence or constitute irresponsible advertising.
