General Mills has now decided to take an active role in promoting gay marriage in Minnesota:
General Mills has entered the Culture War, announcing its corporate opposition to the marriage amendment in Minnesota on the ballot this November which would define marriage as the union of one man and one woman.
Fine. If General Mills wants to choose a side that is antithetical to my Catholic moral principles, then I will do my best to choose an alternate food source. No more Betty Crocker. No more Pillsbury. No more Big G cereals. No more Yoplait. No more anything with the Boxtops for Education coupon.You can see the whole list of General Mills brands here.
Some of you may not be in to boycotts, and that is okay. It is not a mortal sin to buy General Mills. But especially in this case where there are so many easy alternatives, I am happy to put my food dollars elsewhere. If you have children in Catholic schools that participate in the Boxtops for Education program, I would also suggest you talk to the administration of the school and ask them to reconsider their support for a corporation that is using their profits to undermine the sanctity of marriage and the integrity of families.
