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:
Why do I say this? I’m glad you asked.
I recently came across James Dobson’s Ten Arguments Against Same Sex Marriage. I was so utterly appalled at the stupidity of it that I had difficulty forming a coherent response; quite frankly, I don’t think I could dumb myself down enough. It’s just so wrong on so many levels.
I also have a confession to make: I’ve actually read several of James Dobson’s books, and I used to be on his mailing list. I know! Stop laughing! It’s painful enough as it is!
Seriously, though, while Dobson is extremely misguided in a few areas, I don’t think he’s a stupid man. He’s certainly not stupid enough to believe this enormous crock of shit. His so-called arguments against gay marriage are so far removed from anything having to do with the subject that they’re not even wrong!
I’ll just post a few lines here so you can see what I’m talking about. For a full-blown migraine, follow the link and read the whole thing.
As Mike mentioned yesterday at The Odd Blog, the California Supreme Court has recently overturned the State’s ban on gay marriage!
Today I saw Ellen DeGeneres announce plans to marry her longtime girlfriend, Portia di Rossi! I am a huge fan of Ellen DeGeneres, and I am absolutely thrilled about this!
