This Time They've Gone TOO FAR!


The "American Family Association" is one of those organizations with a benevolent name and a hate-filled agenda. In the AFA's case - it's all about hating on the gays. I am used to hearing about such assholes on a regular basis, and have learned to tune out their hate, much as I've learned to tune out the sound of traffic here in Manhattan.

But I cannot stand idly by and let the AFA's latest atrocity go unmentioned. THEY HAVE GONE TOO FAR THIS TIME. They have called for a boycott of my beloved McDonald's. Those dirty bitches.

In my eyes, McDonald's does "the Lord's work" by providing me with comforting Big Macs (extra cheese - no pickle), Chicken McNuggets, and Sausage Biscuits with Cheese. For brief periods of time, McDonald's gave me the McRib, Arctic Orange Shakes, and the Ranchero burger (a quarter-pounder with taco sauce and a big tortilla chip inside - seriously). In my eyes, McDonald's ranks right up there with the Red Cross. When the chips are down, where do I go when I need to feel better? McDonald's. Besides, Arby's doesn't have a Manhattan location anymore.

And McDonald's loves the gays. They were THIS gay boy's employer all throughout my high school and college years (you should have seen this bitch working the drive-thru!). And they recently donated money to the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, as well as placed an openly gay McDonald's executive on the Chamber's board of directors.

This made the right-wing idiot wingnuts go CRAZY! HEAVEN FORBID a multi-national corporation donates money to a legitimate organization, and shows some compassion toward gay people (and rakes in some gay dollars in return). So the AFA has called for a boycott of McDonald's (see story here).

I don't know about you, but this has me so upset...I better get to Mickey D's RIGHT AWAY.

The AFA is just a bunch of total haters. Boycotting Mickey D's is anti-American. I'm happy that we had Mickey D's while watching fireworks last night in defiance of these AFA morons.

And kudos to Mr. Whitman:

"Hatred has no place in our culture," McDonald's USA spokesman Bill Whitman said. "That includes McDonald's, and we stand by and support our people to live and work in a society free of discrimination and harassment."

Jeebus Christ - the AFA is a bunch of fucking troglodytes, and the entire premise of their organization is phony bullshit. Can someone show me one tiny piece of reality-based evidence that demonstrates how we gays are a threat to their goddamn families?

Go McDonald's - way to not cave (so far). I'll absolutely do my part to negate the AFA's petty boycott, even if it means I will have to put off looking like David Catudal for a while.

PUH-Leeeeeze! Do those jokers really think their red-necked, white-trash base is going to forgo Mickey D's? I think not. Sugar, them all's serving sweet tea for a dollar!

Seriously, this is ridiculous and I am personally going into McDonalds with my "I'm a Christian and I Support Gay Marriage" T-shirt every frickin' day and buy my sweet tea. I'll even buy a Happy Meal, when the toy merits. Viva La Ronald!!!

Golly, there really oughta be a Ronald McDonald drag queen, huh?

I blame the English. If they hadn't kicked those fundamentalist zealots out of their country, they wouldn't have come over here and established colonies.

They just get worse and worse.

These self-righteous assholes really piss me off, especially because most of them just end up being so morally corrupt. I'd like to know what Tim Wildmon is hiding in his closet.

Marker asked what evidence the AFA has to show that gays are a threat. They don't have any because it doesn't exist. I've been treated pretty crappy by a lot of hetro men in my life. I have been told by several it's because I'm smart and can think for myself so I'm seen as a threat. Not once, ever, has a gay man treated me that way. They have treated me with nothing but respect and appreciated me for who I am. The real threat to society are these insecure hetro men and women who are so damn self-righteous.

I need to go to McDonald's and get a chocolate shake now.

And the bright side is that I'm glad to know the names of the boycotted companies- i won't have to stand in line so long. On the other hand I always go with a busload of kids- a no win situation.
I have boycotted all the car companies for ten years now.No political agenda- just that on my pension I can't afford a new car.
Macdonald's is the one box store I welcome in my community.They have done a lot of a lot of organizations here and probably saved us a lot of money on the welfare roles and kept a lot of parolees out of jail. Not to mention the scholarships for kids, the bulletin boards for community events, the hunky heart warming food, and I can read the pictures!

Do they really think that people will boycott McDonalds? Seriously? This might explain why the economy shows were talking about how McDonalds was great all-American investment because it is tops worldwide...because even the economic pundits couldn't understand the desire to boycott Mickey D's. Telling people to boycott McDonalds is like telling people to give up their televisions; they won't take the bait.

Great post. I read this news story over the weekend. Good god... the AFA can't leave well enough alone. Between them and the ADA (American Decency Association), they are some of most backwards and bigoted people I know. And the causes they support are so far out there, that I wonder if they are really comfortable living in a free country. Sheesh!
