Like JCPenney, Target, DC Comics, Archie comics, Kraft Food’s Oreo cookie, Nabisco’s Honey Maid crackers, Cheerio breakfast cereal, and fast fooder Burger King, Betty Crocker has also embraced the rainbow flag and gone homo.
Dustin Suggins reports for LifeSiteNews, July 14, 2014, that the 90-year-old homemaking company Betty Crocker says it is adjusting to the times by promoting all relationships — including homosexual couples and cohabitating couples — as equal to married couples with children.
On a website dedicated to its “Family Project,” Betty Crocker has highlighted four families, including a lesbian couple and divorcees who are remarried.
The change in Betty Crocker‘s focus became well known in August 2013, when the company – a subsidiary of General Mills, which supports same-sex “marriage” — released a video promoting same-sex couples. At the same time, it provided cakes to homosexual couples who “married” in Minnesota after the state legalized homosexual marriage.
Last month, Betty Crocker donated cakes to couples at the Twin Cities Pride Parade, and an employee group marched in the Parade. It also partneredwith New America, a left-of-center think tank, to put out a survey the company says aimed “to gain a first-person point of view on what it means to be a homemaker in America today — and how those roles and descriptions have changed over time.”

Betty Crocker Marketing Manager Perteet Spencer told AdAge.com, “Betty has always been a pioneer and guide for homemakers. As today’s family continues to evolve, so does Betty. Naysayers are always there, but generally the response has been really positive.” She also says that the company is not an activist for homosexual relationships, but “is an activist for the modern homemaker.”
Family Research Council (FRC) Senior Fellow for Policy Studies Peter Sprigg told LifeSiteNews that FRC has “long argued that corporate America should remain neutral in the culture wars. It is unfortunate that Betty Crocker is choosing instead to take the side of those who want to redefine marriage and family altogether.”
Sprigg said Betty Crocker’s efforts to put a positive spin on changing the traditional family “conceals the dysfunction, heartache, and harms to children which frequently result from such alternatives to the family headed by a married mother and father. Betty Crocker’s celebration of homosexual relationships, divorce, and single parenthood will undoubtedly alienate the 71% of Americans who, according to their own poll, say that they have ‘old-fashioned values’ about family and marriage.”
According to the federal government’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), homosexuals make up a mere 2.3% of the U.S. population. According to a 2011 study by a gay and lesbian think tank at UCLA, the Williams Institute, homosexuals account for less than 2% of the U.S. population.
Thanks to the MSM’s propaganda and brainwashing, Americans think the number is 13 times higher.
