….. and the state recognition thereof.  I never cared for Cheerios, anyway, and the Malt O’Meal cereals in a bag are way cheaper:

Minnesota-based food giant General Mills has publicly come out in opposition to a proposed constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage in Minnesota.

Currently same-sex “marriage” is against the law in Minnesota. However, in November, Minnesotans will vote on the amendment which would insert the true definition of marriage in the state constitution, making it much more difficult to introduce gay “marriage” in the future.

According to a post put up Thursday, June 14 on the General Mills company blog by Ken Charles, vice president of global diversity and inclusion, “General Mills CEO Ken Powell on Wednesday addressed 400 local gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender professionals and announced that the company opposes the amendment.”

“While General Mills doesn’t normally take positions on ballot measures, this is a business issue that impacts our employees,” [Please…….so, only this ballot measure affects your employees?  What about ballot measures to raise taxes?  Change gun ownership laws?  Whatever?  What a crock] Charles said in his post. “I am proud to see our company join the ranks of local and national employers speaking out for inclusion. 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.”

“Obviously, there are strongly held views on both sides,” Charles said. “We acknowledge those views, including those on religious grounds. We respect and defend the right of others to disagree. But we truly value diversity and inclusion—and that makes our choice clear. General Mills’ mission is Nourishing Lives. Not just some. But all.”

Brian Brown, president of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), a major advocate for the marriage amendment, blasted the General Mills Corporation for effectively declaring a “war on marriage” with its own customers.

“Marriage as the union of one man and one woman is profoundly in the common good, and it is especially important for children,” said Brown.

I did sort of like WheatChex, though.  Oh, well……..I can do without.  Good bye, General Mills.

You can tell them what you think here.
