Honey Maid’s ‘This Is Wholesome’ Ad Campaign Features 2 Gay Men as Parents

Honey Maid ad features gay parents

Nabisco, the makers of Honey Maid Graham Cracker, sparked controversy with its new ad campaign featuring 2 gay men as parents. The commercial was published on YouTube.com on March 10, and Nabisco says the ad has attracted “10 times” more positive comments than negative ones.

“Today we celebrate all families. From working moms to two moms; stay at home dads to single dads; adopted kids to surrogate kids. Honey Maid recognizes that the reality of family has changed, but the wholesome connections that all families share will endure. #thisiswholesome,” the company stated on the video.

But some viewers disagreed with Honey Maid’s definition of wholesome.

“What does a Graham cracker have to do with homosexuality? There is no point to this commercial what so ever. Does the store make it any sweeter d**n liberal bastards,” wrote Lori Desko in a comment under the video.

YouTube user Twitch1872 responded “welcome to the real world, families like this exist get over it.”

In a statement following Honey Maid’s promotion of the commercial, family values group One Million Moms chided the group for attempting to “normalize sin” and threatened to boycott the company’s brand of Graham crackers.

“Nabisco should be ashamed of themselves for their latest Honey Maid and Teddy Graham cracker commercial where they attempt to normalize sin. Right away it shows two men with a baby, followed by other families, and ends with different families pictured including the one with two dads,” said the organization.

“This commercial not only promotes homosexuality, but then calls the scene in the advertisement wholesome. The ad states, ‘Everyday wholesome snacks for every wholesome family. This is wholesome,’” the group continued.

“One Million Moms stands up for biblical truth, which is very clear in Romans 1:26-27, about this particular type of sexual perversion…this is truly sad. If this is what Honey Maid thinks is wholesome, then my family will no longer purchase Honey Maid or Nabisco products,” ended the statement.

The company simply responded with a video showing the number of supporters of the commercial dwarfing the number against it.

“We made a commercial about what makes families, family. And we received a lot of comments. See what we did with them,” said the company with a link to the video below.

    if you have toddlers then you keep graham crackers and cheerios in the house, car, bookbags, and in your purse. its the american way :obama:

    in other news, some gay ppl eat fried chicken too. bet wont nobody stop eating THAT tho. :pizza:

    They basically “baited” people into saying something they knew good and well the response they would get and then they had a plan as to how to respond to make themselves appear “loving” or “accepting” or whatever.

    Soon there will be no need for nurturing moms. The nanny state (led by Obama and Hillary) will force biological moms to turn their children over to childless gay couples.

    the only thing about not telling or exposing your kids to something is that when they ask their friends the friends wont say “you too young” or “we’ll talk about it later”. i wanted first dibs with giving my kids information so I told them everything as soon as I thought about it. this commercial is a good opportunity to spark discussion if you havent already done so.

    At her research lab at the University of Louisville, neuroscientist Susan Harkema turned her back to her study subject to check a reading on a computer screen.

    “Hey Susie, look at this,” the patient called out to her. “I can move my toe!”

    Startled, Harkema spun around. The purpose of her study, which involves sending electrical stimulation to broken spinal cords, was to learn more about nerve pathways, not to actually make patients move.

    Oscar Pistorius broke down on the witness stand Tuesday, sobbing as he recounted the moment he realized he had fatally shot his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.

    “She wasn’t breathing,” the track star heaved as he described the February night more than a year ago. The judge adjourned the murder trial as Pistorius’ emotions unraveled and later ended proceedings for the day.

    The Olympic sprinter had been explaining how he came to shoot Steenkamp, and how it didn’t dawn on him at first that she, and not an intruder, may have been behind the bathroom door at which he fired his pistol.

    “I didn’t want to believe that it could be Reeva inside the toilet,” he testified.

    Pistorius said that after hearing noises, he made his way to the bathroom, pistol in hand.

    The double-amputee braced himself against a bathroom wall as he noticed that a window was open, and became convinced that an intruder was inside his residence, he testified.
