McDonald's Refuses to Hate Gay People!*

*sorry I had to steal that from Wonkette, it was just too good.
Boycott McDonalds is movement to boycott McDonalds because they donated $20,000 to the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce in exchange for membership and a seat on the group’s board of directors. The NGLCC lobbies Congress in support of same-sex marriage.

The best part about their site is the comments...

  • “I am informing all my children an gran children to Boycott Mcdonalds, that is a total of 22 people”
  • "True Christians don’t hate Gays, they only desire to have them acknowledge their sinful lifestyle and and accept Jesus’ forgiveness!"
  • "I am 73, my wife is 70 - As much as we have enoyed the golden archers over the years, we will not continue to do so because of your close minded leadership. To call us haters tells us your mind is closed, not open to change. We are amazed that your leadership is taking this stand."
  • "I will drive up to the order window & vioce my reason for not ordering any food. McDonalds should re-McThink their posistion!"
  • "I will not support any organization that has lined themselves up with the anti-family crowd."
  • "Congratulations on you suicide. Why on earth would a food company choose to support such an issue? If you were a condom company, maybe I could see it."
  • "If the CEO of McDonalds is for the Homosexual Agenda, then he is against America and God..."One Nation, Under God.""
In response to the boycott, McDonald's spokesman Bill Whitman suggested to the Washington Post that those who oppose SSM are motivated by hate, saying "...hatred has no place in our culture." McDonald's has decided to adopt the "hate" theme used by gay activist groups for years.

Oh man this has the possibility to get ugly. But really how long do you think they could realistically stay away...Big Macs...McGriddles...Snack Wraps.... (cue Homer Simpson)
