The Procter and Gamble boycott that several pro-family groups launched a little over a month ago is gaining momentum.

Already over 230,000 people have signed a petition agreeing to join the boycott of popular P&G products including Crest toothpaste, Tide detergent, and Pampers diapers.

The boycott is led by pro-family groups American Family Association, Focus on the Family, and Citizens for Community Values in an effort to denounce the company’s support for a homosexual activist campaign to repeal a Cincinnati ordinance and create a special victims category for homosexuals.

"As we researched the issue," Randy Sharp of the American Family Association told CitizenLink, "we found that for a number of years, Procter & Gamble was heavily involved in the promotion of homosexuality, not only within their company, but in society as a whole."

Procter & Gamble also printed an ad in a Canadian gay magazine, which displayed a photo of two men and bed while scattered clothing surrounded the bed. The ad for Downy suggested that the P&G product could take out wrinkling caused by taking off the clothes in a hurry.
