No McDonald's Today

No McDonald’s Today: “McDonald’s is now on trial. The fries are good. Even great. But the worldview they support isn’t fit for human consumption.”

    While this is good to know, dragging WWII into this discussion seems disingenuous and absurd:

    “McDonald’s has decided, apparently, to declare war on my family. And to declare war on the civilization of liberty, independence, creativity, and humanity under God that my Dad fought for in World War II.”

    Besides, who eats at McDonald’s anyway?

    The poor but over worked. And the young.

    Just hearing the bogus phrase “homosexual agenda” makes me want to vomit up the Big Mac I just ate. The gay people I know are real people, who suffer and search for truth. They don’t have an “agenda.”

    I plan to eat at McDonald’s more often now that I know they oppose gay-bashing and support basic equal employment opportunity.

    Wow, I hadn’t read the article until now. It’s almost like the author is built of madness.

    Why is it that he imagines that McDonald’s support of non-discriminatory laws is in any way an attack on his family is beyond reason. I suppose he must imagine that if people who have committed homosexual acts are allowed to get jobs as easily as those who haven’t, then his wife will probably leave him and his children will hire attorneys to begin divorce proceedings. I mean, that’s only reasonable, I suppose.

    My favourite comment ran something like this: “Oh great! What next? A MacGay burger??” Because yes, the renaming of their meals is the first thing that will happen after McDonald’s destroys the family.

    The Dane: I think the “McGay burger” will come in a rainbow-colored box with flames on the sites. Persons who buy the burger will be able to choose a doll of their choice: Judy Garland, Liza Minelli, or Barbra Streisand (with accompany CD, of course). If the person wants a male doll, he/she can pick one modeled after one of the Village People guys.
