Boycott of Miller Beer Launched Because of Sponsorship of Sadomasochistic, Anti-Christian Gay Parade
WASHINGTON, DC, September 27, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Catholic League president Bill Donohue announced a national boycott of Miller Beer on this morning’s "Fox and Friends." The boycott comes after leading Christian groups were outraged at Miller’s sponsorship of a sadomasochistic, anti-Christian homosexual parade which regularly includes full nudity and public sex acts.
"Never have we experienced greater corporate arrogance than in this dispute with the Miller Brewing Company. Miller is sponsoring an incredibly outrageous and palpably anti-Christian event in San Francisco: the Folsom Street Fair," explained Donohue.
"This all started when we learned that Miller was sponsoring an event that featured an obscene ad thrashing the Last Supper. After being pressured, Miller offered a lame statement of regret and said it was pulling its logo from the ad. Not only has it not done so-it is still posted on the website of the street fair-Miller refuses to withdraw its sponsorship. To top it off, when we informed them that some of the money being raised at this festival was being funnelled to the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, they were unimpressed.
"Accordingly, Miller leaves us with no options: we are calling on more than 200 Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist and Hindu organizations to join with us in a nationwide boycott of Miller beer. We feel confident that once our religious allies kick in, and once the public sees the photos of an event Miller is proudly supporting, the Milwaukee brewery will come to its senses and pull its sponsorship altogether. If it doesn’t, the only winners will be Anheuser Busch and Coors."
