Evangelicals Go Bonkers Over Oreo Cookie With Rainbow-Colored Filling!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Oreo set off an online brouhaha when it posted a picture of an Oreo with a six-layer, rainbow-colored filling, with one U.S. commenter calling it `disgusting.`

Oreo, part of Kraft Foods, posted the picture Monday evening, accompanied by the words `June 25` and `Pride` and a caption that read, `Proudly support love!`"

Oreo cookies are loved by Americans of all races, religions, and sexual orientations -- it`s fitting and proper that Kraft Foods would pay homage to gays and lesbians on Gay Pride Month.

An Oreo cookie with a six-layer rainbow-colored filling might be aesthetically disgusting, but its message of tolerance and acceptance is a blessing.

Those who will boycott Kraft Foods because of their support for human rights will be doubly disappointed: They will miss eating Kraft products, and they will gnash their teeth when they realize that Kraft will probably sell more Oreo cookies than ever before.

I support love and yummy treats, I will continue to buy Oreo cookies and other delicious Kraft products.
