Guido Barilla, who leads the world’s largest pasta maker, has angered
homosexual activists by declaring that he will only portray the “classic
family” in company advertisements. Said Barilla, “For us the concept of the
sacred family remains one of the basic values of the company.” As a result,
groups advocating for special rights based on homosexual behavior have launched
a boycott of the Barilla brand.
American Family Association president, Tim Wildmon, responded with the
"We commend Barilla for its stand in support of natural
marriage. The best in social research confirms what Scripture and common sense
tell us: the best nurturing environment for children is in a home where they
are being raised by a mom and a dad. Instead of boycotting Barilla, Americans
who care about kids ought to be buying Barilla."

United Methodist Church in Southaven, Mississippi, at the

culture war. The original name of the ministry was National Federation for
Decency but was changed to American Family Association (AFA) in 1988.

the country with over two million online supporters and approximately 180,000
paid subscribers to the AFA
