Dobson Says Boycott Procter and Gamble


            James Dobson founder of Focus on the Family has joined with the American Family Association in calling for a boycott of Procter and Gamble’s two best known products Tide laundry detergent and Crest toothpaste. This is not the first time that the maker of household products has come in for criticism. Simply by looking at the where the company buys advertising on television it is possible to see the companies support of “sexualized television programming.” But we believe that Dobson is correct in saying “what its doing now threatens the cornerstone of society: the family.”

            Phil Burris is president of a citizen’s group trying to maintain the Cincinnati city-charter amendment approved in 1993 with a 62% vote. This amendment bars special rights for homosexuals. Procter and Gamble has given $10,000 to the campaign to overturn the amendment. Mr. Burris told Agape Press he was stunned that P&G would go against the majority of city residents. But then they might think they are so powerful or important they do not have to concern themselves with what people who buy and use their products think. This is but the tip of the iceberg when it comes to documenting Procter and Gamble’s pro-homosexual activities. The list is long.

            As usual, when something is laid at P&G’s charge, they deny the case, but given their record of litigation, we have to say along with Donald Wildmon, founder of America’s largest pro-family online action site, if it were not true P&G would be suing the American Family Association and Focus on the Family who revealed their ongoing support of the sodomite agenda. Documents I have on file seem to indicate that if they did so, even with their high priced lawyers they would lose. The evidence is there.

            As for the call for a boycott of P&G, I have little hope of it being successful. There was a successful boycott of K-Mart a few years ago, but when it comes to successfully resisting a financial power house like Procter & Gamble we must recognize it is tough to make a dent in them. Too many love their soap more than God.
