Quote# 44037

[Mr. Barber is back to unleash a hate-filled fundy diatribe against McDonalds.]

But perhaps most damaging is that McDonald's is now publicly supporting counterfeit "same-sex marriage," despite the fact that, according to a March 2007 CBS/New York Times poll, only 28 percent of Americans believe same-sex pairs should be allowed legally to marry. As far as bad business decisions go, this one's a real whopper (sorry for the mixed metaphor). This has, no doubt, made shareholders grimace … (OK, I'll stop).

Still, same-sex "marriage" is a contradiction in terms. It's a bizarre bastardization of legitimate marriage. It both mocks and undermines the genuine article. Marriage is a fundamental building block to any healthy society. If you introduce counterfeit money into commerce, the dollar is devalued. If you introduce counterfeit marriage into society, true marriage is devalued and society is harmed. Yet McDonald's has now thrown its full weight, brand name and presently tarnished reputation behind the push for "gay marriage" in all 50 states.

If you take time to write McDonald's and inquire as to why the company has betrayed a majority percentage of its customers, you'll get a condescending, cutesy and self-aggrandizing form letter that takes about 350 words to say absolutely nothing. It's built upon euphemistic talking points, spoon-fed by homosexual activist pressure groups such as the NGLCC and the anti-Christian "Human Rights Campaign." It goes a little like this: "At McDonald's we respect and value everyone … blah, blah, blah … Diversity … blah, blah … Inclusion … yada, yada … We have a long and proud history of leadership … blah, blah, (gag!)" You know the drill.

However, when McDonald's steps up to the mic to address the media, a veritable rainbow of true colors is revealed. While referring to customers with traditional family values, spokesman Bill Whitman regurgitated this little McNugget to The Washington Post: "Hatred has no place in our culture." Nice job, Bill. I'm sure the hundreds of millions of customers you've just smacked down with this little insult are itchin' for a Happy Meal now.

Get it? If you happen to support the historical definition of marriage - which is, and has always been, male-female - then you're a drooling, inbred hatemonger. This kind of rhetoric is right out of the left's PC handbook. It's an intellectually bankrupt cop out intended to avoid legitimate debate. When you're getting your tail whipped, you lob personal attacks.

So, the truth is McDonald's definition of "diversity" doesn't really mean diversity after all. The company has wholeheartedly bought into that euphemistic notion of "diversity" pushed by liberal elites - a paradoxical model for "inclusion" that only swings one way. So when you hear McDonald's talk about "diversity," what they're really feeding you is warmed-over, anti-Christian bigotry in a cheap, thin wrapper.

If we're bigoted and hateful and you point it out you're evil! How dare they treat people like people?! Diversity means supporting my views to exclude and hate everyone else not like me!

PRAISE JESUS!

Matt Barber's a concerned woman? Then what the hell is he doing out of the kitchen?

I really hate how all of this is almost making me want to support McDonald's by eating there.

I just got back from McDonalds. I ordered two McMuffins, and they gave me, and charged me for, three.

"Hatred has no place in our culture." Nice job, Bill.

Quite.

"I don't hate gays, I just think that allowing them to get married would poison our culture!"

Matt is apparently not a 'concerned woman.' But of course those cunts would support this kind of crap. Yeah, wanting equality for gays equals 'anti-Christian bigotry.' Mmhm...

Um, correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the divorce rate here in the States somewhere in the 50-75% range? It would appear to me that marriage has been well devalued already without any help from the gay community

I like how he claims it's a bad thing that they are willing to put their morality before profits (or at least, that's what he claims is happening). Also I bet these sort of things were the exact same things back in the 60's, but about the rights for black people.

Matt thinks that "hundreds of millions of customers" will feel aggrieved.

I think only the most bigoted of fundies would even care, and who'd want them in your store anyway?

Hatred is a protected family value?

Hey Matt? Bigotry is ugly. Hatred is against your biblical belief.

Guess you aren't a very good Christian, are you?

"This fundie rant was made possible by a nine-year-old girl. She toiled in a field for eighteen hours a day, got beaten whenever she asked for a bathroom break, and constantly breathed a pesticide that permanently fucked up her lungs. Though she couldn't afford a can of her own product if her life depended on it, the job paid just well enough to keep her from turning to prostitution to help support her family.

That is, until the driver of our investigative team forgot to set the parking break and her hands were horribly disfigured in the resulting car accident. We're really sorry, Maria."

People can read 400-page elaborations of that basic premise while sipping a fucking cup of US$7 coffee. They never notice the sick conflict of interest between those two products, and they might even finish the book feeling like they actually changed the world. When legitimate problems get treated in such a nonchalant manner, why do fundies think that anybody is even going to notice that McDonald's is giving money to gay rights organizations*?

*That is what they're doing, right? Sorry to say, but I'm not up on this one.

Hey Matt, looks like you guys really had an impact on McDonalds. ROTFLOL! Next up: picketing Ronald McDonald houses. "Parents should be home praying over their children instead of seeking the latest treatment for their seriously ill children."

If you introduce counterfeit marriage into society, true marriage is devalued and society is harmed.

How? Do people stop getting married? Does everyone run out and get divorced because their marriage is "devalued"? Do prenups and community property laws suddenly become null and void? Do retired people stop getting spouse benefits? No. It has no effect on my marriage whatsoever. None on Matt's, either. This guy needs to stop worrying about other peoples' lives and get a life of his own.

I e-mailed McDonald's to tell them that I would make an exception and eat at their restaurant just to counter the screaming whackjobs. Then I did.

Matt is a concerned woman! Who knew?

8/2/2008 2:23:00 PM



So much bullshit, so little time.

Matt is a concerned woman!
I, too, wondered what the feck a Matt was doing in a group for concerned women.

This actually makes me want to go back to eating at McDonalds! They're much coolier than I thought they were. Shame they're still peddling burger shaped death to the kids.

"Hatred has no place in our culture". Amen. FWIW Matt, we have same-sex marriage in Canada because we realised some time ago that a diverse and inclusive society is a healthy society.

a condescending, cutesy and self-aggrandizing form letter that takes about 350 words to say absolutely nothing.
Oh, the irony.

Imagine if the rank looked this this:

But perhaps most damaging is that McDonald's is now publicly supporting counterfeit "rights for black people," despite the fact that, according to a March 2007 CBS/New York Times poll, only 28 percent of Americans believe that black people deserve to have the same rights as white people.

Still, "rights" for black people is a contradiction in terms. It's a bizarre bastardization of legitimate humanity. It both mocks and undermines the genuine article. Humanity is a fundamental building block to any healthy society. If you introduce counterfeit money into commerce, the dollar is devalued. If you introduce rights for counterfeit humans into society, true humanity (the Caucasions) are devalued and society is harmed. Yet McDonald's has now thrown its full weight, brand name and presently tarnished reputation behind the push for "rights for black people" in all 50 states.
