Dubbed the "Proud Parent" campaign, the commercial was promoting the company's new limited-edition cookies with rainbow-filling.
The group have threatened to boycott the popular company.
Now, of course, the 3-minute-long commercial was praised by so many viewers...

Some even said the commercial made them emotional.It's clearly struck a chord with audiences.
But, not everyone had this reaction...
One Million Moms, which is affiliated with the American Family Association (AFA), launched a petition threatening a boycott in response to the campaign.

But their latest attack is certainly the biggest.
via: YouTubeTaking 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."
via: YouTube"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...
via: YouTube"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.
"When we purchase Mondelez International products then we are helping fund and support PFLAG."
via: YouTube"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.
via: YouTube"Oreo and Mondelez International need to hear from you. Supporting the homosexual agenda versus remaining neutral in the cultural war is just bad business."
via: YouTube"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!"
