Quote# 42510

With 30,000 restaurants in more than 100 countries, you can get your chicken McNuggets fix just about anywhere. Rev. Don Wildmon, founder and chairman of the American Family Association, says McDonald's' success can be attributed to their choice to market to one American institution.

"McDonald's caters to the family," Wildmon says. "They put emphasis on the children."

But the pro-family leader says the world's largest fast-food restaurant chain is branching out into a new business -- promoting the homosexual agenda.

"McDonald's ... has given a significant amount of money, I might mention, to become a member of the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce," Wildmon explains. "Among the many other things that the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce promotes is hate crimes [legislation], the ENDA [Employment Non-Discrimination Act]. [T]hey're dedicated to pushing the homosexual agenda."

You know, if these idjits ever figure out that noise like this only encourages me, I'm in trouble. Same reason I'm 33 and I still do Halloween.

Supporting equal rights? How disgusting!

What is wrong with promoting hate crime legislation? Are you planning a hate crime against GLAD and afraid of getting caught?

If you are so worried about the children, maybe you shouldn't be letting them eat the food at McDonalds. I'd be more afraid of that than the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce.

I may not like their food, but I say good for McDonalds.

Well, homosexuals have families too.

The battle between evil and evil continues unabated...

More and more major corporations are supporting LGBT rights, including domestic partnership benefits to employees and advertising to the market, and they have for quite some time. The AFA can advocate boycotting whatever they like, as it's their right, but their members are in for a rude awakening, once they realize how many companies are gay-friendly.

Oh well, it'll make them feel more special and persecuted.

Ha ha ha.

Oh noes! Not Ronalds!

But, but, the fries rock!

You may not realize it, Reverend, but there are plenty of homosexual people out there who have families. By reaching out to and supporting them, McDonald's is telling these people that they matter just as much as anyone else. You and your ilk need to understand that supporting gay rights is not the same as forcing people to become homosexual. The only "agenda" homosexuals have is the desire to be treated like equals.

I've been pretty happy with McDonald's lately. Their menu seems to be getting a bit better (even if they are ripping off Chick-Fil-A), and they consistently use their corporate presence for good causes.

"Welcome to your new and improved gay McDonald's, can I take your order?"

"Hi, could I get a Happy Meal please?"

"I'm sorry, we only do Fabulous Meals now."

"Okay, so what's the difference?"

"None really, except it comes with either a free cock ring or clitoral vibrator."

7/8/2008 10:32:59 PM


@Septic Sceptic: I'd go to McDonalds more often if that was the case!

7/8/2008 10:35:38 PM


Two evils does make a right.

7/8/2008 10:39:07 PM


@ Septic

McD's isnt the same anymore anyway...the only good thing left is the fries

7/8/2008 10:45:05 PM


Don't ask what's in the "special sauce", OK?

7/8/2008 10:51:37 PM


@ kingoftheheavies: You're so right! Teh fries r awsum!

7/8/2008 10:52:09 PM


Septic, you just made my day. Thanks.

7/8/2008 10:56:13 PM


"the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce [ ... is ] dedicated to pushing the homosexual agenda."

What a surprise.

I don't think the "homosexual agenda" is the same thing you think it is, though.

Um... McDonald's corporate logo is a guy wearing makeup. How long did it take for you to see this coming?

7/8/2008 11:00:40 PM


Equal rights and tolerance disgusting.

7/8/2008 11:48:12 PM


50 years ago, Don would have been appalled if McDonald's was supporting anti-discrimination laws for blacks.

7/8/2008 11:50:04 PM


I wonder if articles similar to this one ran about racial rights in the 60s and woman's rights in the 20s.

Ol' Donnie Weirdman really, really doesn't have a life, does he?

Allegory for Jesus

Ahhh...that elusive "homosexual agenda". I assume the fact that I know nothing about it is just because the gays are conspiring against filthy liberals to hide the obvious TROOF that they are secretly planning to turn everyone into godless, AIDS infected, feces-eating, squirrel-raping sodomites. There's just no other explanation...like they are looking for less discrimination, which is just an absurd, unthinkable hypothesis.

^^ Anytime someone says "homosexual agenda", I picture a fruity-looking day planner.
