Barilla Pasta anti-gay comments

Ruth Lafler | Sep 26, 2013 03:57 PM

"For us, the 'sacral family' remains one of the company’s core values. Our family is a traditional family. If gays like our pasta and our advertisings, they will eat our pasta; if they don’t like that, they will eat someone else’s pasta."

I guess they will!

"I think we want to talk to traditional families. The women are crucial in this."

So he's not only anti-gay, but also sexist.

"I absolutely don’t respect adoptions in gay families, because that concerns a person who is not the people who decide."

"Barilla in its advertising has always chosen to represent the family because this is the symbol of hospitality and affection for everyone."

Make that "symbol of hospitality and affection for everyone," except gay people with children. Apparently, they don't count as families.
