General Mills Comes Out Against Minnesota Marriage Amendment, Cites 'Inclusion'
Bye Bye Cheerios?: General Mills announces support for gay 'marriage'
LifeSiteNews.com reports " Minnesota-based food giant General Mills has publicly come out in opposition to a proposed constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage in Minnesota.
Currently same-sex "marriage" is against the law in Minnesota. However, in November, Minnesotans will vote on the amendment which would insert the true definition of marriage in the state constitution"
According to a post put up Thursday, June 14 on the General Mills company blog by Ken Charles, vice president of global diversity and inclusion, "General Mills CEO Ken Powell on Wednesday addressed 400 local gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender professionals and announced that the company opposes the amendment."
"While General Mills doesn't normally take positions on ballot measures, this is a business issue that impacts our employees," Charles said in his post. "I am proud to see our company join the ranks of local and national employers speaking out for inclusion"
Brian Brown, president of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), a major advocate for the marriage amendment, blasted the General Mills Corporation for effectively declaring a "war on marriage" with its own customers.
"Marriage as the union of one man and one woman is profoundly in the common good, and it is especially important for children," said Brown.
