Earlier this month, the chocolate company Cadbury released a commercial poking fun at all the different ways people might eat one of their creme-filled eggs. It’s all in good fun.
Did you catch the moment when two guys were sharing one egg?
It lasted all of a second. But it’s enough to infuriate the one conservative Christian mom at One Million Moms (Twitter count: 4,235).
OMM’s Monica Cole says the ad is “graphic and offensive” and a sign of disrespect when it comes to “how the company celebrates the risen Savior.”
I should repeat: This is a chocolate company, not a church ministry. But in OMM’s view, anything that doesn’t honor Republican Jesus at all times is inherently anti-Christian.
Cadbury just released a commercial that has resulted in a backlash of comments from Christians and non-Christians alike. Everything from “disgusting” and “very disappointing” to “yech” and “gross.”
Todd Starnes best describes the ad this way: “It’s like Disney’s ‘Lady and the Tramp’ scene where the two dogs share spaghetti. Except, it’s two grown men spinning around in a circle and sharing a creme-filled chocolate egg in a sexualized way.“
Damn, Todd Starnes apparently gets turned on by anything.
Cole is urging Christians to sign a petition condemning Cadbury and insisting, “I’m not buying into your social agenda to push homosexuality.” As if ads for chocolate turn people gay.
It’s weirdly comforting to know that, no matter what changes in the government, some Christians will never stop being deranged bigots.
