Latest boycott: Don't buy Barilla Pasta

Dear Gazette Blog Reader:

My family, and especially my 12-year-old son, eats a lot of pasta—and my wife and I have often chosen Barilla Pasta because of the wide variety available at our local grocery store.
No more. Yesterday, Barilla Pasta President Guido Barilla made it clear how he felt about families like mine by saying that he'd never show gay families in advertisements for Barilla. He said that gays "can go eat someone else's pasta" if they didn't like his message.
I'm taking him up on that and so should you. Sign the petition to tell Guido Barilla that you stand with gay families and won't buy Barilla.
That's why I started a petition to the Barilla Pasta company, which says:
Barilla Pasta President Guido Barilla's statement that he'd never consider showing gay families in his advertisements is outrageous. I'm supporting gay families by boycotting Barilla Pasta.
Thanks!
–Beth Allen
