Monica Cole, the one mom at One Million Moms (Twitter count: 4,138), is now taking out her rage on Avocado Mattress for airing a commercial in which same-sex couples are shown in bed doing… absolutely nothing. She’s just mad that they exist.

(Side note: I had no idea there was a market for “organic” mattresses.)

The commercial also shows straight couples in bed. None of the couples are doing anything sexual. But the existence of gay people is very upsetting to fundamentalist Christians like Cole and her masters at the American Family Association.

Avocado Mattress should be ashamed of its commercial for attempting to normalize sin by featuring same sex couples in bed together. The newest commercial for organic mattresses not only promotes same sex relationships by including a lesbian couple and a homosexual couple who are both very much together and cuddling, but also glamorizes it by being misleading.

Promoting same sex relationships has nothing to do with marketing the product. Yet Avocado wants to make it clear where the company stands on this controversial topic, instead of remaining neutral in the culture war. One Million Moms continues to stand up for biblical truth, which is very clear about this particular sexual perversion (Romans 1:26-27).

I said this before, but her idea of “neutrality” means erasing the very existence of LGBTQ people. That’s not neutral. That’s bigotry. I’ve seen plenty of similar commercials with a husband and wife and I never saw it as promoting straightness. But Cole can’t see a gay couple without assuming there’s some larger agenda at work.

Also, Cole cites Romans 1:27, which says “Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.” What’s that penalty? Cole doesn’t say, but she’s apparently fine with executing men who have sex with other men. That’s what Christianity taught her — to the point where seeing a gay couple immediately leads her to imagine them having sex, which she thinks should result in the death penalty.

For what it’s worth, Cole doesn’t say where or when this commercial is airing. She just assumes kids will see it and — who knows — magically turn gay or something? There’s no logic behind anything she says. She’s just a homophobic bigot who uses Christianity as her shield.

(Portions of this article were published earlier, because Cole hasn’t had a new idea in several years.)
