Barilla Pasta Defies Media, Speaks for Children's Rights

"First things" is reporting:

The head of Barilla pasta says he won't run advertisements featuring gay couples, citing his belief that children deserve a mother and father:

Guido Barilla, whose firm has almost half the Italian pasta market and a quarter of that in the US, told Italy's La Zanzara radio show last night: "I would never do an advert with a homosexual family & if the gays don't like it they can go an eat another brand.

"For us the concept of the sacred family remains one of the fundamental values of the company."

He added: "Everyone has the right to do what they want without disturbing those around them". But then the pasta magnate upped the ante by attacking gay adoption. "I have no respect for adoption by gay families because this concerns a person who is not able to choose," he said.

Calls for a boycott are ringing out (from the homosexual lobbies)

THE BLAZE news site says:

"Is Barilla the new Chick-fil-A? If rhetoric and reaction are any indication, then it's quite possible that a comparison between the two may soon be warranted. While the furor over Guido Barilla, 55, the pasta company's chairman, hasn't quite hit a fever-pitch yet, it's headed that way."
