Ben & Jerry's ice cream honors same-sex 'marriage'

Charlie Butts - OneNewsNow - 9/1/2009 12:40:00 PM An ice cream company is celebrating homosexual "marriage" in Vermont (see related article).

Same-gender marriage is now legal in The Green Mountain State, and Ben & Jerry's has announced that it will temporarily change its "Chubby Hubby" ice cream to "Hubby Hubby" in honor of homosexual marriage. Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality tells OneNewsNow that companies like Ben & Jerry's neglect to talk about the dangers of the lifestyle.

"Besides the health aspects, there's also the fact that homosexual behavior is opposed by God, and that's something that we should take seriously," he contends. "All homosexual behavior is sinful, and regardless of what liberals say or what Ben & Jerry's puts on a tub of ice cream, that remains the case."

The public can react by not buying the ice cream products, LaBarbera suggests -- but adds that Ben & Jerry's is probably impervious to conservative criticism at this point.

"The left is really making a fool of itself when it comes to homosexuality. They talk about transparency, but they don't want to tell anybody about the health risks of homosexual behavior," he points out. "They claim to follow God and to be Christian, and yet they celebrate all the things that God opposes...abortion, homosexuality. This is just par for the course."
