Anger is boiling over at the chairman of the Barilla pasta company after he vowed to only feature heterosexual couples in commercials and added that anyone offended by his anti-gay stance could buy a different brand of noodles.
Guido Barilla told Italian radio on Wednesday that he would never use a gay family to promote the worlds leading brand of pasta, according to The Guardian.
For us the concept of the sacred family remains one of the basic values of the company, Barilla said. I would not do it but not out of a lack of respect for homosexuals who have the right to do what they want without bothering others
[but] I dont see things like they do and I think the family that we speak to is a classic family.

I was going shopping for noodles just now... how convenient
This will make it much easier to pick out pasta at the grocery now.
This is the outrage? How far we’ve fallen, and it started with, ‘we just want to be left in peace and not harassed’.
Nice. No fear - just truth
You fags can go slurp somebody else’s noodles.
Barilla pasta will be receiving extra business from me.
I already buy their products. Good to know.
I already only buy Barilla, as our family thinks it’s the best brand.
We Minerals always use Barilla pasta.
funny..i was just asking my wife and daughter if they want me to make baked ziti on Saturday....guess i know who’s ziti i’ll be buying tomorrow at Shop Rite...
It’s his company, his choice. Look at JC Penney. They were once the iconic family place to shop. This guy has spent years developing a business that appeals to the “classic family”. Why blow it?! Bwahahaha
so do my italian immigrant inlaws...
He could show a black homosexual wheelchair bound deaf and blind couple.
See how simple it all is?
I thought libs were the "live and let live" type. Apparently they're closer to "live the way I say or we won't let you live" variety.
Why would it ever occur to a major consumer products company to direct their marketing at homosexuals, who are a miniscule fraction of the consuming public?
