McDonald's "gay support" issue - Dave's Dispatch - Blog on Chain Leader
Oh sweet merciful christ. It's the AFA again and they're ready to boycott something else.American Family Association Launches Boycott Against McDonald’s For ‘Promoting The Homosexual Agenda’
I applaud McDonalds for joining the board of the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, even if it's only for the money and good press. But whatever. If this is "agressivly" supporting the gay agenda (as well as gay marriage), then so be it.
Oh no! Not the traditional family! The traditional family is always under attack by those awfull, awfull homosexuals.AFA President Donald Wildmon said the situation is “strange” because “it’s the family that McDonald’s appeals to — children’s playland, you know, all the little toys, all of that. And they are promoting a lifestyle that would utterly destroy the traditional family."
WAKE UP people. There never was and never will be a traditional family, Your silly "traditional" family is what's known as the nuclear family, and it's only been around since the 40's. And it's dying (divorce rates in N. America are 55%). Family types have been as diverse as the people living on this planet and monogamy is hardly the most popular.
Go Mcdonalds!We treat our employees and our customers with respect and dignity, regardless of their ethnicity, religious beliefs, sexual orientation or other factors.
Did you know if you take the 'a' and the 'diversi' out of 'diversification it spells 'fiction'?AFA has a long history of silly, offensive boycotts against, among others, Wal-Mart (for selling “Brokeback Mountain” DVDs), Ford Motor Company (for advertising in gay-friendly publications), and the American Girl dolls (because the maker contributed to a youth organization that was pro-choice and supported the acceptance of lesbians). In 2005, it called off its unsuccessful nine-year boycott of Disney (for its “embrace of the homosexual lifestyle“).
Here's a comment on the second article:
Wow. Not just some moral values, but all. Thank god that accepting others for who they are isn't a moral value. I'll make sure to give Jesus a nice backrub when he gets here so that he'll be nice and ready to kick some homosexual ass. There's a lot of em too. I can do this without guilt because I know that God clearly gave them a choice to choose to be gay or not and face public persecution from overbearing religious types not to mention the amount of discrimination some people show towards them. What a package. You get to be gay and you can piss a whole lot of people off!The people who believe that "it's no big deal", I've got news for ya. It is. Because it goes against all moral values. Maybe not yours but that's because some people have let themselves be suctioned into the way the world is today and that is very sad. All I can say is they might want to think again because if they're not ready when the Lord comes back then they will regret not re-thinking the way they should be living their lives.
I like how this guy said it:
I think this is the only thing from McDonalds that agreed with me.I've come to realize any group with "family" in their name is either completely full of shit or has nothing at all to do with families.
