Barilla Tells Gay People Don't Buy Our Pasta

Guido Barilla
O.K., Then...Done.

Via The Independent:

Gay rights groups are calling for a boycott of the world’s biggest pasta maker Barilla after the company’s chairman said he would never use homosexual couples in his advertisements.

Guido Barilla, whose firm has almost half the Italian pasta market and a quarter of that in the US, told Italy’s La Zanzara radio show last night: “I would never do an advert with a homosexual family…if the gays don’t like it they can go an eat another brand. 
 
“For us the concept of the sacred family remains one of the fundamental values of the company.”
 
He added: “Everyone has the right to do what they want without disturbing those around them”. But then the pasta magnate upped the ante by attacking gay adoption. “I have no respect for adoption by gay families because this concerns a person who is not able to choose," he said.

Russian MP Alexei Zhuravlev: Take Away Children Of Gay Parents

Russian MP Alexei Zhuravlev

 He thinks that these children are better off in an orphanage. This is the face of evil.

Via GayStarNews:

When asked if a single mother is discovered to be gay, and if it was necessary to take that child to live at an orphanage, the politician said he had ‘no doubts’. 
‘Of course she should definitely be deprived of her rights to the child,’ he said.‘Homosexuals must not raise children. They corrupt them. They do them much more harm than if the child were in an orphanage. I am deeply convinced of this.’ 
There is considered to be around 700,000 Russian children in orphanages, with several having a very poor quality of life. If street children are included, that number goes up to 3.2 million.

Did Anti Gay Marriage Pastor Matt Prater Change His Bio To "Hide" His Divorce?

Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd made minced meat of Pastor Matt Prater by pointing out his biblical hypocrisy.  It now seems that Pastor Prater is trying to minimize the fact that he is divorced and remarried.

Here is a screen shot of a cached version of the site from August 27th, 2013.


The first paragraph was:

"Carol and I were married on May 17, 2003. I have three children: Lydia, Joshua and Grace. Lydia is from my first marriage and lives with her mum on the south side of Brisbane. She stays with us every second weekend, and most school holidays."

This is a current screen shot of his bio page at http://www.newhopebrisbane.org/index.php/about-us/pastor-matt-prater

The first sentence now reads:

 "Carol and I were married on May 17, 2003. I have three children: Lydia, Joshua and Grace."


Where did the reference to his first marriage go?  Why was this changed?  The timing is interesting, to say the least!

Aussie PM Kevin Rudd Makes The Case For Marriage Equality

Pastor Matt Prater looking a bit flummoxed by common sense

This is one of the best arguments by a politician that I have heard for gay marriage!  Thank you, Kevin for standing up for marriage equality!

From TheAustralian.com
Mr Rudd turned feisty after first attempting to calmly explain to the ABC Q&A audience his conversion to support same sex marriage. 
"If you call yourself a Christian why don't you believe the words of Jesus in the Bible?" Pastor Matt Prater then asked. 
"Well mate, if I was going to have that view, the Bible also says that slavery is a natural condition," Mr Rudd replied, to extended applause. 
"St Paul said in the New Testament, 'Slaves be obedient to your masters'.
"Therefore we should have all fought for the Confederacy in the US civil war? For goodness' sake."
