Da Da Dot Da Da, I'm Loathing It (And Leaving IT)

There is a bit of a brouhaha over fast food giant McDonalds support of the gay and lesbian agenda. The American Famaily Assoiciation has called for a boycott of McDonalds after they donated money to the National Gay Lesbian Chamber of Commerce and a McDonald's executive, Richard Ellis serves on the the NGLCC board of directors. But McDonald's tried to play if off.
McDonald's spokesman Bill Whitman says the company has made a financial contribution to the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, and a McDonald's executive serves on the chamber's board. He insists that doesn't mean that McDonald's supports "a particular lifestyle or same-sex marriage."
Excuse me? Giving money to a cause is called "supporting" that cause. Now McDonald's may have a "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy with their employees so whatever Mr. Ellis does in his own time is his business. BUT; McDonald's released a press statement saying they were overjoyed to be helping the NGLCC, which sounds like an endorsement to me. They also tried to claim that the organization only helps to provide business opportunities to gay and lesbian entrepreneurs. But the NGLCC's own website says they also lobby congress to pass gay agenda items like same sex marriage. However you slice it, Macdonald's is in bed, so to speak, with the gay lesbian agenda.

The AFA is asking people to contact McDonald's and tell them they should remain neural in the cultural war. Neutral?  Cultural war? If it is a war then if you are on one side you should be asking people to join your side, not become or remain neutral. If this is a cultural war then the AFA is surrendering. I say boycott McDonald's until they live up to their claim of being "family friendly".  Family friendly organizations do not support causes that would destroy the family. I'll miss sausage McMuffins the most. - Christian Group Boycotts McDonald's for Supporting Gay Chamber of Commerce
