    Read about it here http://www.digitaljournal.com/article/257586 . So much hate against same-sex marriage and homosexuals!
    Good for McDonalds refusing to withdraw when they were threatened! Now they are being boycotted for that. The boycotting website is here http://www.boycottmcdonalds.com/

    Bill Whitman (US Spokesperson for McDonald's): "Hatred has no place in our culture. That includes McDonald's, and we stand by and support our people to live and work in a society free of discrimination and harassment."

    *applauds*

    Too bad, this is RJ and McDonald's is generally viewed as the devil. Heh icon_wink.gif

    I don't even know what a McGriddle is! Maybe we don't have them in Canada yet.

    McGriddles are the Devil's food. Sweet, delicious devil food.

    The boycott is rediculous. The AFA always makes their own "quotes" to spur actions, like saying the CEO says "Company will put full resources behind gay agenda"

    Foolish lemmings. I just hope Mayor McCheese can avoid the oncoming riots.

    Well, if their going to support us, I think they should larger and, perhaps, more private play areas. Actually, it's bittersweet. They are poisoning our diets (I understand that didn't do it intentionally, but they should change) and supporting the Gay and Lesbian agenda. Kind of sad in a way, but they have much needed funds that can benefit our deserved rights.

    A McGriddle is the most delicious breakfast item that has existed on Earth. They made it just to taunt me.

    I'm sure some of the fatties engaging in the boycott could use a break from McDonalds. That said, good for McD even though as a company, it takes advantage of poor people, ignorance about proper nutrition, and serves garbage to its customers.

    Many companies have actually caught on to the fact that gays and lesbians make up a big part of their employees and potential customers and, I suspect, any recognition is more about the $$$ than altruism. Gotta love the smell of good ole' capitalism! XOXO

    They just want to make gay people fat so we're not attracted to each other anymore. It's a conspiracy I tells ya.

    This kind of thing you don't see very often, and is really important. Corporations hold a lot of power in the US, politically, socially, and economically. When companies like this make a public stand on a social issue, it makes a difference.

    Even RJ members with abs can get a Mickey D's burger a couple times a year, so Big Macs on me for EVERYONE!!

    Woot!

    ah yes, the American Family Association. The same people that boycotted Ford for advertising in Gay publications. The same people that boycotted Disney for supporting the godless queer cabal. The same people that boycotted Wal-Mart for selling Brokeback Mountain DVDs.

    What a collection of assholes.

    I contacted McDonald's corporate to show my support. Even though I don't eat fast food I will support their charities and other community programs. Hate is unhealthier than fast food.

    I couldn't agree with this statement more but i would also like to add that while it is accidentally beneficial to us that we control a lot of buying power as a 'niche group' so MCDonalds will stand up for our rights. (this would have meant something in the 70's and 80's in the begining of the gay rights movement) we should not forget that Mcdonalds is also responsible for deforesting and destroying large areas in the Brazilian and amazon rain forest in order to produce the meat products that service their industry.

    Also by the comodification of American diets they have succeeded in producing a global agenda in which food items seek to harm not help everything from third world nations to metropolated areas overseas. Just another global megacorp.

    Not even to mention some of its human rights violations overseas as related to child work practices. Just because practice does not do any of the legally grey things it once did but was forced to change by court mandate does not make it a good company.

    Yep, McDonalds is an invention of Famine. (check out Pratchett's "Good Omens" for the reference.)

    You don't have to eat a cheeseburger to support McD's! I will though cuz I'm a toothpick right now. But they do serve fruit for all you healthJOCKS. Get the fruit without the sauce.
