Eat more soup

Yes, friends and neighbors, the increasingly wacky “American Family Association” has done it again. This time, they are discombobulated by the fact that Campbell’s Soup ran an ad in the Advocate that includes a family headed by two women. See for yourself how Campbell’s has, by merely inhabiting the reality-based world, “failed to remain neutral in the culture war.

Given the very real ongoing meltdown of our economy, this sort of thing is simply unforgivably silly.

The AFA said to “feel free to edit this letter, or send it as it is.” I felt free to edit it:

Dear President Conant:

I am delighted that Campbell’s Soup has decided to recognize that real families come in many different flavors.

The “American Family Association” is confused, not to mention misleadingly named. They do not seem to understand that loving couples who commit to taking care of each other and any children they may be raising are “clean, wholesome and All-American,” regardless of gender. Any loving, stable family is “good for our country,” and anyone who doesn’t get that obviously hasn’t been eating enough soup. I personally recommend the Cream of Chicken. It would do them a world of good.

Thank you, and have a blessed day 🙂

    I always say you can’t make this stuff up, and it’s true. Bless Don Wildmon’s twisted little heart, January was National Soup Month. Seriously.
