From under the rock of pwjagwdyecn Cynthia Davis:
In September, when I sent out my Capitol Report that included photos of the McDonald’s ribbon cutting, some of my readers wrote me asking how I could support this organization because of its corporate support for homosexuality. I am happy to report that McDonald’s has now changed its position, and we should all celebrate by letting the corporate office know we appreciate its new commitment to stay neutral. Here is the final word from American Family Association (AFA):
Great news! Because of AFA supporters like you, McDonald’s has told AFA it will remain neutral in the culture war regarding homosexual marriage. AFA is ending the boycott of McDonald’s. As you know, AFA called for the boycott in May after McDonald’s joined the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC).
McDonald’s said its Vice President, Richard Ellis, has resigned his position on the board of directors of NGLCC and his seat on the board will not be replaced. McDonald’s also said that the company has no plans to renew its membership in NGLCC when it expires in December.
In an e-mail to McDonald’s franchised owners, the company said, “It is our policy to not be involved in political and social issues. McDonald’s remains neutral on same-sex marriage or any ‘homosexual agenda’ as defined by the American Family Association.”
We appreciate the decision by McDonald’s to no longer support political activity by homosexual activist organizations. You might want to thank your local McDonald’s manager.
Depressing that McDonalds would fold to the pressure of a hate organization like AFA.
