VIDEO: General Mills Anti-Gay Protest Goes Awry As Man Lights Lawn On Fire

Video footage of a gay rights opponent's protest gone awry is going viral in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) blogosphere.
Originally reported by Good as You blogger Jeremy Hooper, the clip shows an unidentified man attempting to light a box of Cheerios cereal on fire in protest of General Mills' proclaimed pro-marriage equality stance.
"One out of every eight boxes of cereal in this country is Cheerios," the man states. "This is really the treat now for the homosexuals! And this is our protest of General Mills, because they're advocating same-sex marriages. So we are gonna torch some cereal!"
Things don't go exactly according to plan, however, as the fire quickly spreads to the lawn below as the man struggles to extinguish it.
Meanwhile, the National Organization For Marriage (NOM) recently launched a "Dump General Mills" campaign. "Your decision to pander to same-sex marriage activists has forced me to choose between your food products and my conscience," a petition, which has so far drawn over 24,000 signatures, states. "As long as food is produced by other companies my conscience is going to win out over the desire for another bowl of Lucky Charms."

Jane Lynch Says ‘Fuck Chick-Fil-A'

Jane Lynch kicked off the Comedy Central Roast of Roseanne with a jab at America’s favorite anti-gay chicken sandwich joint on Saturday, and the crowd definitely approved. Before introducing the evening’s honoree, Roseanne Barr, Lynch took a few quick jabs at the assembled roasters, which included Carrie Fisher, Katey Sagal and Ellen Barkin among others. Lynch quipped of the woman-heavy dais, "This show is serving up more old spoiled hens than a Chick-Fil-A. Oh, that reminds me... Fuck Chick-Fil-A. " Judging from the riotous laughter and applause the joke received, there were few Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day attendees in the audience. Lynch, serving as Roast Master for the evening in her first-ever roast appearance, married her partner Dr. Lara Embry in 2010, and she detailed her story of coming out in the 2011 memoir Happy Accidents. The comedic actress was, of course, not the only roaster to take aim at a current controversy; Jeffrey Ross, who is referred to as the Roastmaster General and has his own roast-themed show The Burn debuting on Comedy Central on August 14, arrived on the red carpet dressed as Joe Paterno. The comedian explained that if the outfit offended anyone "They can do what Joe Paterno did – look the other way.” The Comedy Central Roast of Roseanne airs August 12 at 10 p.m. ET.
