McDonald’s Refuses request to be neutral in culture war
.
TUPELO, MS – McDonald’s has told American Family Association (AFA) that it will not stop supporting groups promoting homosexual marriage.  AFA is asking its supporters to boycott the restaurant chain.
.
AFA asked McDonald’s to remove McDonald’s name and logo from the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) Web site where McDonald’s is listed as a “Corporate Partner and Organization Ally” of NGLCC.  AFA also asked the burger – fries giant to remove the endorsement of NGLCC by Richard Ellis, Vice President of Communications, McDonald’s USA, from the NGLCC Web site. McDonald’s refused both requests.
.
McDonald’s donated $20,000 to NGLCC in exchange for membership in the NGLCC and a seat on the group’s board of directors. The NGLCC lobbies Congress on a wide range of issues including the promotion of homosexual marriage.
.
“This boycott is not about hiring homosexuals, or homosexuals eating at McDonald’s or how homosexual employees are treated.  It is about McDonald’s, as a corporation, choosing to put the full weight of their corporation behind promoting the homosexual agenda, including homosexual marriage,” said AFA chairman Donald E. Wildmon.
.
Pat Harris, Global Chief Diversity Officer, Vice President, Inclusion & Diversity at McDonald’s, told AFA the company would “reaffirm our position on diversity.”
.
Ellis, who is openly homosexual, was given a seat on the NGLCC Board of Directors. Ellis is VP of Communications for McDonald’s USA. He was quoted as saying: “I’m thrilled to join the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce and ready to go to work. I share the NGLCC’s passion for business growth and development within the LGBT community, and I look forward to playing a role in moving these important initiatives forward.”

  1. McDonald’s: those opposing Same Sex Marriage motivated by hate

    Here is a followup from AFA on July 10th, 2008

    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.

    Whitman went on to say, “We stand by and support our people to live and work in a society free of discrimination and harassment.” Mr. Whitman has intentionally avoided addressing the reason for the boycott. This boycott is not about hiring gays or how gay employees are treated. It is about McDonald’s choosing to put the full weight of their corporation behind promoting their agenda.
