Conservative Christians outraged at sweet mattress ad that shows lesbian & gay couples

A rightwing organization is trying to get a sweet mattress ad taken off the air because it shows same-sex couples in bed, fully clothed.

“The ad states, ‘Love is pure and natural,'” One Million Moms (OMM) says on its website. “There is nothing pure or natural about homosexuality.”

The ad OMM is mad about was produced by Avocado Green Mattress, a company that makes organic mattresses.

The ad shows various couples in bed, cuddling and laughing. Several of those couples are made up of two men or two women. A voiceover talks about sustainability, love, and organic mattresses.

OMM is not, in fact, a group run by a million mothers. It’s a project of the SPLC-designated hate group American Family Association, dedicated to getting LGBTQ people, discussions of bras, and the word “hell” off the television.

“Promoting same-sex relationships has nothing to do with marketing the product,” OMM’s site huffed about the mattress ad. “One Million Moms continues to stand up for biblical truth, which is very clear about this particular sexual perversion.”

The group has a petition up to encourage Avocado to drop the ad.

“I’m not buying into your social agenda to push the gay lifestyle,” the petition reads. “Your latest ad offends me, as well as many other conservative consumers.”

“I do not agree with the LGBTQ agenda you are forcing on families and children.”

OMM claims that over 4700 people have signed the petition so far.
