Bigots or Pepsi?

The ad is insipid and predictable, and the product it promotes is, well, the less said the better:



And yet it's the best ad and the best product in its category because it has outraged the bigoted ninnies at the American Family Association, which has breathlessly informed its membership that

Pepsi had released a similar ad before. The ads serve two purposes for Pepsi: to sell Pepsi and to promote the homosexual lifestyle. AFA asked Pepsi to remain neutral in the culture war, but the company refused - choosing to support the homosexual activists.

Pepsi has made no effort to hide their support for the homosexual agenda:

Pepsi gave a total of $1,000,000 to the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) to promote the homosexual lifestyle in the workplace.
I suppose I can agree with the objection to the $1,000,000 donation in that it arguably should have been higher for a company the size of PepsiCo. But $1,000,000 is nothing to sneeze at, so I'm certainly not going to throw a boycott over it.

So have yourself a Pepsi product -- it's actually hard not to, given time -- and know that the flavor is the flavor of bigotry's death throes.
