August 14, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A press release from the American Family Association has given an update on the involvement of McDonald’s in the promotion of homosexuality.
“Now we learn that McDonald’s sponsors training for homosexuals on how to promote their agenda among corporations from the inside. Out & Equal™ Workplace Advocates is a national organization devoted to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community in the workplace,” the press release states.
“One of its primary purposes is to train employees how to aggressively promote homosexuality within the company they work for, all the way to the corporate boardroom. Part of last year’s Out & Equal Summit in Washington, DC, (sponsored by McDonald’s) was an organized march into congressional offices demanding same-sex marriage laws be passed.”
“At the bottom of McDonald’s half-page ad in the Out & Equal Summit booklet is this statement: ‘From neighborhood to neighborhood, coast to coast and around the world, McDonald’s is proud to celebrate diversity,'” the press release concludes….
I don’t watch too much TV, except for the occasional channel surfing when I have a spare moment, or I might catch FOX News with Bill O’Reilly, or if there is some kind of big sporting event on like the NHL Playoffs, Soccer World Cup or the Olympics.
A few days ago I was watching some of the Olympic coverage when I noticed a McDonald’s commercial. At first, it appeared quite normal, cheesy, and boring as these ads normally go, but something just didn’t sit right with me after seeing it. The more I thought about it, the more I became convinced that it was driven by the gay agenda.
A man comes out from his house and into his garage where another man is sitting holding a hamburger. The man who came into the garage says to the other guy “Hey, like my shorts, they used to be my jeans.” Then he says something innocuous and the other guy responds in kind.
The guy in the garage is not his bowling buddy but his lover. After all, what straight guy talks about his summer attire to a male friend? Not too many, I should think. And more to the point, why would you put that into a commercial? The pernicious thing about this normalization campaign is that it is oh so subtle, but the message is definitely there. Look for McDonald’s to keep pumping out these kinds of ads. Of course, as time goes on, they will become more brazen and obvious. I’m sure somewhere down the line, we’ll be introduced to Ronald McDonald’s boyfriend.
