You might remember the krazy kristian kooks of Don Wildmon’s American Family Association (AFA) for their highly successful six year boycott of Disney (NOT). Well, now they have another corporate giant in their sites…McDonald’s.
It seems they are upset because, of all things, McDonald’s made a contribution to the Gay Chamber of Commerce and a McDonalds executive sits on the board of directors of the Gay Chamber. According to an AFA email, this constitutes, “promotion of the gay agenda.”
And Wildmon came completely unhinged because a McDonalds’ spokesman called a spade a spade when he said:
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.
I certainly don’t need to eat more at Mickey D’s, but I’ll have to after a statement like that.
