And, no, this has nothing to do with the fact that Grimace is purple or that Mayor McCheese is obviously just maintaining a heterosexual public image to advance his political career while he foot-taps with Larry Craig on trips away from McDonaldLand. It's a whole lot more sinister:
The AFA is boycotting McDonald's
Knowing the average intelligence of the three or four people who'll actually go along with this, the AFA made a list of things this doesn't have anything to do with:
- 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.
So what is McDonald's doing to promote the homosexual agenda?
- They give money to Pride events.
- Their VP of Communications is a member of the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce.
- They donated $20K to the NGLCC.
- They made this controversial statement:
At McDonald's, we treat all our employees and customers with dignity and respect regardless of their ethnicity, religious beliefs, sexual orientation or any other differentiating factor.
Yep. And to me, the McGriddle is reason enough to stay away from the Golden Arches.
I can think of a few other reasons an organization that calls itself Christian and is concerned with "culture" would protest a corporation like McDonald's, like its promotion of childhood obesity and heart disease, the way it overruns local business, and its actively lobbying against health care.
But those are mere trifles to a group like the AFA. The NGLCC is what's actually destroying America.
As a vegetarian, I'm already can't eat much at McDonald's. And as someone who tries to eat somewhat healthy, I have no reason at all to go there (no, their overpriced salads don't cut it).
But, if they want to start a multi-issue coalition, someone started a petition to boycott McDonald's because they support "discrimination against the white race !!" I'm sure whoever started that one has similar complaints to the AFA's, especially considering that the top comment on that petition makes the link to the AFA's boycott.
