Once again, One Million Moms have threatened to boycott Oreo over their latest commercial...

A new Oreo ad has been at the center of controversy this week.

Why? Because it supports the LGBTQ+ community - showing Queer children in loving homes.

Dubbed the "Proud Parent" campaign, the commercial was promoting the company's new limited-edition cookies with rainbow-filling.

As part of this campaign, the company filmed a short film which showed a young woman bringing home her girlfriend to her family. Although, it didn't take long for the renowned conservative Christian group, One Million Moms, to launch a scathing attack against Oreo.

The group have threatened to boycott the popular company.

And it's not the first time they've feuded with Oreo, either.

Now, of course, the 3-minute-long commercial was praised by so many viewers...

Some of whom felt they were finally getting the representation that has been missing for so long.

It's clearly struck a chord with audiences.

But, not everyone had this reaction...

In fact, one organization has taken things to new extremes after viewing the ad.

One Million Moms, which is affiliated with the American Family Association (AFA), launched a petition threatening a boycott in response to the campaign.

This is the latest attack by the group against Oreo, who previously threatened to boycott them after they published an image of a chocolate Oreo cookie filled with rainbow-colored icing for Pride back in 2012.

But their latest attack is certainly the biggest.

Taking to their website in a lengthy post, they began: "Oreo and parent company, Mondelez International, have begun airing a gay pride commercial which has absolutely nothing to do with selling cookies."

They continued by accusing Mondelez International of "attempting to normalize the LGBTQ lifestyle."

"Mondelez International is attempting to normalize the LGBTQ lifestyle by using their commercials, such as the most recent Oreo ad featuring a lesbian couple, to brainwash children and adults alike by desensitizing audiences."

The group continued...

"The company is collaborating with PFLAG and celebrating their LGBTQ advocacy work. It is obvious they are going after our children in a dangerous partnership with PFLAG."

One Million Moms go on to rip into LGBTQ+ organization, PFLAG.

"PFLAG is the United States' first and largest organization uniting parents, families, and allies with people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer. PFLAG National is the national organization, which provides support to the PFLAG network of over 400 local chapters. Founded in New York City, New York, with their headquarters based in Washington, D.C., PFLAG is the most visible group showing support for LGBTQ youth and acceptance of this lifestyle."

"When we purchase Mondelez International products then we are helping fund and support PFLAG."

"In 2011, the popular snack-food company Nabisco became known as Mondelez International. Its most popular brands in the United States are Oreo, belVita, Chips Ahoy!, Cadbury Dairy Milk, Honey Maid, Halls, Philadelphia, Ritz, Sour Patch Kids, Triscuit, Trident gum, and Wheat Thins."

The group then urge their supporters to take action against Oreo.

"Oreo and Mondelez International need to hear from you. Supporting the homosexual agenda versus remaining neutral in the cultural war is just bad business."

They continued...

"If Christians cannot find corporate neutrality with Oreo’s and Mondelez, then they will vote with their pocketbook and support companies that are neutral. Sign our petition to Oreo’s and Mondelez now!"

As of now, Oreo has not responded to One Million Moms.
