Time to buy Barilla pasta!

Hat Tip: Daily Caller

An Italian businessman says the traditional family is important to his business, and the loons are out in force trying to punish him: http://dailycaller.com/2013/09/26/barilla-pasta-company-facing-boycott-following-chairmans-anti-gay-remarks/

It looks like I’m going to be buying Barilla pasta when I buy groceries tomorrow. Not only do I agree with Mr. Barilla when he says, “For us the concept of the sacred family remains one of the basic values of the company,” I support his right to say it.

What’s stupid about the boycotters’ reaction is that Barilla never said anything bad in the interview about homosexuals. He even said he supported gay marriage. Not only that, if you read more about the original interview, the context of the questions were surrounding how they advertise and market their products. He was really referring to how they feel that their target audience is the traditional family, and that therefore they use traditional families in their marketing.
