McDonald’s: Funding Homosexual Activism
McDonald’s is funding homosexual activism–and I’m NOT lovin’ it!
Charmaine and the Penta-Posse
at a McDonald’s
somewhere in Middle America
circa 2005 Buying a McDonald’s hamburger now promotes the homosexual lifestyle. Here’s a sample open letter to the McDonald’s leadership, supplied by the Family Research Council,
Dear Chairman McKenna,
We are writing to request that you end your “Corporate Partnership” with the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) and refrain from making corporate contributions to this or other homosexual organizations.[If individual members of the board of McDonald's wishes to give to any charity, have it your way, so to say -- but a corporation should not
use earnings for charity. Charity is a test of the individual heart -- not corporate or government largess.]
We also request that you adopt a policy which would prevent your corporate officers from using the McDonald’s corporate name to lend legitimacy to work they may do for such organizations. The National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce exists to generate business for companies that are owned by homosexuals. While we do not object to McDonald’s doing business with any suppliers who can provide a quality product or service at a good price, we also do not understand why anyone would engage in affirmative steps to seek out suppliers based on their sexual behavior, or assist in promoting businesses for that reason.[Your Business Blogger(R) has spent thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours in McDonald's PlayPlaces. I'm not sure I've ever seen a homosexual in a McDonald's. The demographics do not fit the fast food market segment.
No. The homosexuals do not want to eat at McDonald's any more than they really want to serve in the military. Homosexuals are on a marketing campaign for normalcy. And they are looking for a stamp of approval in basic cultural institutions: Ronald McDonald, marriage and the military.]
However, the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce does not exist just to promote the economic interests of their members. They also promote an extensive political agenda, including explicit support for legislation and litigation that would:
* Undermine the unique treatment granted to marriage between one man and one woman under the law
* Treat homosexual and “transgender” behavior on the same basis as race under federal civil rights laws
* Label disapproval of homosexual behavior a form of “hate” under so-called “hate crime” laws.[Parents should ask if McDonald's will embrace open unisex restrooms where transgenders and transvestites and cross-dressers can have proximity to the wee ones.]
The NGLCC promotes a controversial social and political agenda that is offensive to tens of millions of your customers. A corporation like McDonald’s, which prides itself on providing a family-friendly product in a family-friendly environment, should not be associated with any narrow political agenda. Thank you for considering my views.
Let the homosexuals dine on fast food at Starbucks. With the rest of the liberals.
Nope. The next time I need to take the Penta-Posse out for fast food — Lord, the money we spend — we will not go to McDonald’s. And neither should you.
Thank you (foot)notes:
Market Research for McDonald’s
Your Business Blogger(R) has enjoyed eating at McDonald’s the world over. I’m not sure of the support for homosexuals in, say, China. See China’s New Statue for Brotherhood and World Peace. And learn where the ad, I’m Lovin’ It was developed.
