Man: That's a Kindle, right?

Woman: Yeah, it's the new Kindle Paperwhite.

Man: I love to read at the beach, but...

Woman: This is perfect at the beach. And, with the built in light, I can read anywhere anytime.

Man: Done.

Woman: With your book?

Man: Nope. I just bought a Kindle Paperwhite. We should celebrate.

Woman: My husband's bringing me a drink right now.

Man: So is mine.

Husbands waive from the bar.

I knew without a doubt that this gay-friendly commercial would cheese off all the right people. I have been checking the One Million Moms website everyday since this commercial was first released. It took them a while, but true to form, today they went full on scold mode and are threatening a boycott of Amazon.
We have Amazon's Kindle Paperwhite commercial that promotes gay marriage. Instead of Amazon remaining neutral in the culture war while showcasing how their product has no glare even at the beach, they chose to promote sin.

The commercial starts off with a guy and a girl sitting on the beach with their Kindles. At the end, the girl mentions her husband is getting her a drink, and the guy says, "So is mine." They both turn around to see their 'husbands' waiting for their drinks. Both men at the bar wave to their spouse.

Homosexuality is wrong just like other sexual sins of heterosexual sex before marriage, adultery, and pornography, but Amazon has chosen to promote gay marriage in their advertisement.  This ad has been airing during programs such as "American Idol" when children are likely watching.

They have provided a huffy form letter that their members can send to Amazon. I'm sure One Million Moms does this as a precaution so that the brainiacs in their fold don't send letters composed entirely of gibberish in caps lock.
As a parent and a member of, I am greatly disappointed in your new "Kindle Paperwhite" commercial that also promotes gay marriage.

I am appalled that Amazon chose to air a commercial that features homosexuality in a positive light. I believe a family company should be more responsible in its advertising. Amazon's casual approach to homosexuality and attempt to redefine marriage is wrong and goes against my Christian beliefs.

Please pull this commercial immediately or at least cut the second half of the commercial. If the ad continues to run as it is, then I will not feel comfortable purchasing products from Amazon.

My decision to support your company depends on it.

I look forward to hearing from you regarding my concern.

In case you aren't familiar with One Million Moms, it is an organization comprised of dozens of moms who never get enough of telling America what they can and cannot watch on the teevee. Their most recent high profile rant involved JC Penney for their evil decision to hire disgustingly out lesbo Ellen DeGeneres. Realizing that the dozens of activists failed to bring the company to its knees, they have abandoned their boycott and have moved on to the scourge of gay hand-held electronics destroying the lives of innocent children.

Thank you One Million Moms. That is the best laugh I have had all day.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
