Buy Wheaties

 General Mills is in Minnesota.

Minnesota is facing a vote on whether to pass an amendment to the state’s constitution which would ban same-sex marriage.

General Mill’s CEO, Ken Powell, said he was agin it. 

Just like Starbucks was against a similar amendment in Washington, where Starbucks is headquartered.

The misnamed National Organization for Marriage, Maggie Gallagher’s anti-anti group, organized a “Dump Starbucks” campaign.  They collected 44,387 signatures in support of anti-anti.  But then gays and the other Spread-Civil-Rights people got together and formed their own group, a “Thank you, Starbucks” campaign.  They got 650,109 signatures.

Now NOM is going after General Mills.

Buy Wheaties.
