Christians Outraged as Kellogg Uses Tony the Tiger in ‘Gay Pride’ Advertisement

By Heather Clark | christiannews.net

KelloggTUPELO, Miss. – A number of Christians are expressing outrage after a popular cereal company recently used Tony the Tiger in a print advertisement promoting “gay pride.”

“Wear your stripes with pride,” an advertisement featuring the Frosted Flakes icon, was reportedly published in the Atlanta, Georgia pride guide last month to coincide with the city’s homosexual pride march and festival. Kellogg had served as one of the sponsors for the event.

“At Kellogg, we’re an evolving culture that respects and accepts employees’ sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression so that all employees can be authentic and fully engaged,” the advertisement reads.

It also provides a seal noting that Kellogg had been recognized by the homosexual advocacy group Human Rights Campaign as one of the “best places to work” because of its “LGBT equality,” as well as a K-Pride and Allies logo.

Since the Tupelo, Mississippi-based Christian activist organization American Family Association posted the advertisement on its Facebook page on Friday, the status has received nearly 700 comments, the majority of which are disappointed consumers.

“Goodbye Kellogg’s, you’re not so greaaattt!!! anymore,” one commenter named Maria wrote.

“Tony the Tiger needs to be worrying about kid’s nutrition, not adult sex lives,” said another named Aimee. “This is perverse.”

“What I cannot understand is why can’t they all just be neutral,” added a commenter named Maria. “They can still hire people who are gay, no one said that they could not, but they also could just stay out of promotions and stuff and just say we are neutral.”

In addition to Frosted Flakes, Kellogg is also the maker of Fruit Loops, Rice Krispies, Apple Jacks and Special K, as well as Pop Tarts, Eggo waffles and Nutri-Grain granola bars.

But Kellogg is not the first cereal company to openly express its support for homosexuality. As previously reported, in 2012, General Mills announced its support for same-sex “marriage” and its disdain for any laws that would attempt to prevent it. CEO Ken Powell appeared at a Minnesota homosexual pride event declaring his opposition for a then-proposed state constitutional amendment that would enshrine marriage as being solely between a man and a woman.

Ken Charles, General Mills’ Vice President of Diversity, also issued a letter throughout the company, outlining that he believed homosexual “marriage” would benefit employee productivity, and that if the amendment passed, it would be more difficult to retain skilled workers.

“I am proud to see our company join the ranks of local and national employers speaking out for inclusion,” Charles stated. “We do not believe the proposed constitutional amendment is in the best interests of our employees or our state economy – and as a Minnesota-based company we oppose it.”

General Mills markets well-known cereal brands such as Cheerios, Wheaties, Chex and Total. It is also responsible for products from brands like Yoplait, Pillsbury, Betty Crocker, Hamburger Helper and Green Giant.

Kellogg and General Mills join a plethora of companies that have actively promoted homosexuality, including Starbucks, Nabisco, Betty Crocker, Campbell’s and Burger King.

    This one is easy folks, hit them in the pockets, don’t buy their products. We would be healthier and could save a little money. And what does sex have to do with “employee productivity” and retaining skilled workers? That one is easy too, nothing.

    Thanks again Ex ministries,What’s so Ironic is that this cereal is so loaded with chemicals that it was not allowed in our household growing up. As a matter of fact, none of these companies are producing nutritious foods, they all have either genetically modified grains or chemical additives in them. Even “cheerios”. If anyone recalls, General Mills tried to introduce a same sex couple in a Cheerios commercial not too long ago and public backlash forced it off. As a group , not only can we walk our money away from these companies but we could choose to make better nutritional choices as well. Once again, Ex Ministries already has a video that addresses this very issue. I pray I will continue as a Christian, to learn and educate myself as to how powerful my spending dollars are, and how powerful is the wisdom , knowledge and discernment that God makes available to us.

    Maybe they should have used Fruit Loops for the cereal in the advertisement…..but Flakes works well, too!
    Seriously…..I’m so sick n tired hearing about gay pride…WHAT do theses folks think they have, or are doing, that entitles them to be “proud”?? The pushing for acceptance and equality of homosexuality is becoming an epidemic and spreading faster than Ebola…
    God is not pleased.

    Why we can’t just be a nation that wants to do what GOD has ordered. Did not know all these companies support homosexuality. Learn something new everyday.

    Yeah, well Christians may be upset, but somehow that upset is not translating itself in to big numbers of them boycotting certain companies and products.

    Hoooo huuuuum……another day another shopping trip.

    Kellogg, I won’t buy your products no more! I can’t support something that God says it’s a abomination in His eyes. I rather fear God than man. You all need to repent from sins that you’re promoting and accept Jesus Christ in your life or His wrath be upon you and your company, ok?I hope and pray you stop supporting this abomination. Thank you.

    This is so stupid!! When segregation ended you did not see Tony the Tiger with his fist in the air on the cereal box saying black power. ” At Kellogg, we’re an evolving culture that respects and accepts blacks”. That didn’t happen! This is the plan of the enemy. This is the only sin that has pride attached to it.

    The boy scouts, our military, our churches, our sports , our politicians, our schools , our entertainment and even our ,breakfast cereal… nothing seems safe . ROMANS chapter 1 reminds us that God was going to turn them over to a reprobate mind , that sad day is here !
