Boycott Cambells soup

You're not buying a can won't make a difference at all. And since it's not a sin to buy a can, what's the big deal?
No offense but personally these little boycotts are silly and seem to be just a way to make people think they are making a difference when it's not. It's lazy activism. You want campbell to stop donating to immoral things?; get big and loud about it. Not "I'll buy Progresso tonight. There I sure showed them!"
Actually if 20 million people did just that it would.
Your deductions on how boycotts are not effective are totally inaccurate. When these big corporations like Cambell start even feeling the smallest effect of the slightest reduction due in part to a boycott they change their tune in a hurry, believe me, the "gay" ads will disappear in a heartbeat when the dollars stop trickling in.

One man(or woman) can make a difference, don't fool yourself.

Maybe someone whose memory is better than mine can help me out here, but I sorta remember back in the late '80s or early '90s, Idaho was going to adopt some kind of abortion restriction and the pro-aborts managed to put a stop to it by boycotting Idaho potatoes. Yes, boycotting does work, but I think you probably have to let the manufacturers or farmers know why you're not buying their products.

I agree, but now, with the help of the Internet, we really can get the word out and don't worry, these companies have people in their PR divisions to know exactly why their being boycotted.
Believe me, the most effective way to put a stop to some of these anti-Christian/Catholic policies is to bury them financially. When the numbers start to drop, they'll drop all this gay stuff pronto. Don't think they have some kind of agenda  of tolerance for respecting alternate lifestyles, those at the top answer to one thing and one thing only, their God, and his name is money.

at least you're consistent...most of the times.

In case you missed my reply, the first paragraph of your post on the Priest/Dating thread was brilliant.  I mean that sincerely.  It was great.

Soup is good food. 

I try not to dwell on things like this.  I was going through my mutual fund prospectus the other day and was apalled to find the kind of companies it contained. Believe me, ignorance truly is bliss.  What am I supposed to do, cash out my mutual funds in a bear market?  No thank you.

I maintain that a remote cooperation in evil is preferable to a proximate occasion of sin.  As long as the former doesn't morph into the latter, I don't see a problem.

And thank you in advance for your Aquinian condemnations. I don't know how I managed to make it to this point without such pronounced moral clarity and spiritual enlightenment.  You have truly brought a whole new perspective to my life.  Now go to hell.  [Image: tounge2.gif]
