The American Family Association is boycotting McDonald’s. Why would they boycott such a fine dining establishment? Well, first let’s have a look at what it’s not about:
- This boycott is not about hiring homosexuals.
- It is not about homosexuals eating at McDonald’s.
- It is not about how homosexual employees are treated.
According to their website, the boycott is about:
It is about McDonald’s, as a corporation, refusing to remain neutral in the culture wars. McDonald’s has chosen not to remain neutral but to give the full weight of their corporation to promoting the homosexual agenda, including homosexual marriage.
PZ Myers responds thusly:
Oh. They don’t object to homosexuals being served food in the restaurant, they just object to promoting civil rights for gay people in the whole dang culture at large. Homosexuals can have the right to consume greasy fast food and work at low wages, but that’s it, we’re drawing the line at allowing them to be treated as full human beings.
Couldn’t have said it better myself, Dr. Myers. Thanks for speaking my mind for me. It’s been a rough week.
What did McDonald’s do to cross the AFA, its president, Donald Wildmon, and — by extension — Jesus (R-Nz.)? They donated $20,000 to the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce. McDonald’s’ revenue runs about five billion dollars a quarter, so you can see their profound commitment to destroying the family through sodomy.
Mr Kelly includes a stupidly hilarious list of comments from outraged fundies, representing the mentality of the customer base McD’s has offended. Do check it out!
My son loves McDonald’s, mostly for the playland, though he’s just about outgrown it. I usually have to grit my teeth when I agree to take him there. Now I can feel good about it. It’s a civil rights issue, damnit!
And I do love their sweet tea.
