Homophobic or Truth?

BBC reports that Anglo-Dutch firm Unilever says it has ordered the withdrawal of a Flora margarine advertisement in South Africa that has been condemned as homophobic.

The advert features a bullet with the words "Uhh dad I'm gay" flying towards a heart made of china.



The advert, on a pink background, includes the tagline "You need a strong heart today" near the Flora logo.

Flora, owned by Unilever, has long promoted its margarine as helping consumers maintain a healthy heart.

So, the question is, is that homophobic? Is there a man alive who's heart would not be broken to hear those words from his son? Of course, gays are rarely fathers so they would not necessarily understand how much a father wants to be proud of his son and be able to brag on him. The world is not at a place yet where that can happen very often when a son suddenly 'comes out'.

Nor can a gay man understand the innate desire of mankind to reproduce itself. Gays are a complete failure in this regard. The desire for a man to have his bloodline continue is stronger than most of us realize, and if an only son turns gay it is a heart-breaking event for most fathers.

The fact that this statement of fact had to be pulled from the media and apologized for is really telling of the power of the gay lobby. This is very bad news for all of us which we will explore in a later article.
