TAKE ACTION!: Help Pepsico fight Donald Wildmon and the AFA

The American Family Association of Tupelo, MS, headed by Donald Wildmon, is one of the organizations that was at the forefront of the recent gay marriage tragedy in California. This is a diabolical organization that has used the treat of boycott to censor television, and try to stop good companies from supporting diversity and equality for non-heterosexuals in America.
Their latest target is Pepsico, which includes the Pepsi, Frito-Lay, Tropicana, and Quaker Oat/Gatorade brands.
This from a recent AFA mailing.

November 14, 2008

Dear Donald,

Pepsi has given Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) a half-million dollars to help push the homosexual agenda in the workplace. PFLAG is a political advocacy group that promotes radical homosexual political causes like same-sex marriage, hate-crime laws, and gay adoption.

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. (yayyyyyyyy!)

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

This is followed by a request for donations.
Also with the letter, this "call to action"
Take Action!
  • E-mail Chairman 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) (800-960-3602) 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).

We must respond to this immediately We are now beginning to realize that this war for equality and freedom must be fought by counteracting thier scare tactics.
  • First, DO contact Ms Nooyi, but THANK HER for supporting P-FLAG and encourage her, both corporately and personally, to continue that support.
  • Second, call the Pepsi numbers show above to also thank them for the support and encourage them to continue. Also let them know that the more they SUPPORT groups like P-FLAG, the more likely you will enjoy Pepsico products.
  • Third, pass this along to others, and encourage them to do the same...and immediately.
  • Fouth, invest in Pepsico. The company has launched a DirectBUY program where you can purchase stock in the corporation directly from Pepsico through Bank of New York. Details here: http://phx.corporate-ir.net/phoenix.zhtml?c=78265&p=irol-buy_direct_plan
Finally, BUY PEPSICO products! By using your consumer power, you can...and will....offset any drop in sales caused by any called boycott by AFA and its minions. The list is too lengthy, but here are listings of all of Pepsico's products, by division: http://www.pepsico.com/PEP_Company/BrandsCompanies/index.cfm#container5
Many of us have stood by the sidelines of this too long. The results of that inaction are clear, if you witness the outcome of Prop. 8 in California. The main goal of people like Wildmon and the AFA is a United States (and eventually, the world) under a monolithic theocracy based on a highly skewed interpretation of the Bible.
People should be free to choose their own path. Donald Wildmon and his AFA minions do not believe that. That is why, starting now, they must be halted and frustrated at every turn. Starting here. Starting now.
