Skip to comments.Barilla: ‘Gays can eat someone else’s pasta’

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.

We have used Barilla for years. They are so big and so well established I don’t think the gay lobby can lay a glove on them. A bigger worry is they are a European company and who knows what the ultra-PC apparatchiks at the EU might do.
Barilla has been one of my favorite brands for years, and now has become my favorite!!!
AWESOME!! We buy their noodles all the time, now we will be buying more
Progressive social engineers can all go p*ss up a rope.
Well now they’ve gone and done it. They’ll suffer the same fate as Chik-Fil-A. If they’d just made the effort to be more homo-centric they could’ve been the JC Penney of pasta.
As long as this is free choice, I’m all for it.
The trouble is, the Obamanauts will work to outlaw Barilla at military bases, government cafeterias, etc...
Hope he suffers like Chick-Fil-A suffered (i.e., not at all).
Wow, a business that does not believe it has to fawn over 2-3 % of the market.
Looks like I’m having Barilla Linguine tonight, and tomorrow night!!
Me too. I’ll buy nothing but Barilla from now on.
I always buy Barilla. Now I’ll buy it with a smile on my face.
Never heard of this company but now I will be buying from them.
Well, now really, how hard was it before?
Barilla is a great pasta brand, and I will be buying more of it!!!!
Barilla pasta is the absolute best on the market. Their sauces are also exceptional. Forget Ragu.
DeCecco makes the best mass produced pasta by far, but now I will also buy Barilla.
Great, I just purchased two boxes of their spaghetti. I have now locked onto a brand.
