Dear Todd Starnes, guess where you can put the Doritos . . .

Fox News' Todd Starnes

For all of his false bellyaching about the so-called persecution of Christians in America, Fox news personality Todd Starnes certainly doesn't come across as a Christian.

If you have read any of his tweets or heard anything he has said in general, I think you would agree he comes across as a lying, spineless, weasely bullying who talks tough when he is not called to defend what he says.

Take for example this situation regarding Frito Lay and its rainbow colored Doritos. The company is selling these doritos as a part of a team up with Dan Savage's charity, The "It Gets Better" project.  The "It Gets Better" project deals with the problems lgbt youth have with bullying and homophobia in general.

However, members of the anti-gay right, including Starnes, is attempting to raise a fuss and make the entire situation about Savage rather than his charity. Let's just say that Savage has more of a vocal history of challenging the homophobia coming from these folks than most. And they despise him for it.

Starnes has now declared that he is boycotting Frito Lay:

Starnes is particularly upset that proceeds from the limited run will benefit Dan Savage's "It Gets Better Project," which supports LGBT youth, declaring that he will not buy another Frito-Lay product until the company "stops giving money to a bunch of godless sickos who bash Christians." It appears that Frito-Lay would rather do business with the likes of Dan Savage than America’s good, church-going people. Look, it’s not my business where you dip your Dorito, but as for me and my house, I can promise you this, not a single Frito, not a single Cheeto until Frito-Lay stops giving money to a bunch of godless sickos who bash Christians. 

Don't be like that, Todd. At least buy the Doritos. That way, I can tell YOU where to stick them.
