The Barilla Pasta anti-gay family statement

Okay, two blogs in one day, but I find this too important to not speak about.  Everyone has seen that a major pasta company has come out stating that they will never have a gay family represent them in advertising.   Personally, I don't buy my products based on who is in the advertisement, but I do have a problem with what was said about LGBT families and adoption by the Chairman of Barilla, Guido Barilla, "I have no respect for adoption by gay families because this concerns a person who is not able to choose".  

Do children adopted by heterosexual couples get to choose their parents?

In his "Clarification" remarks he stated the following:

"I respect gay marriages"

followed by,

"In its advertising Barilla represents the family, because it is what welcomes everyone."  

Obviously NOT everyone.
