|AFA ends boycott: McDonald’s agrees to changes
October 9, 2008
Great news! Because of AFA supporters like you, McDonald’s has told AFA they 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 McDonald’s Vice President Richard Ellis has resigned his position on the board of NGLCC and that his seat on the board will not be replaced. McDonald’s also said that the company has no plans to renew their 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.
The Bad News…
The homes of 30 Christians were burned in the eastern Indian state of Orissa on Wednesday night, according to a UCA News report. Christian leaders urged Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to exercise his constitutional prerogative to dismiss the state government; the prime minister told them he would soon visit victims of the Orissa violence.
