The AFA those bastions of bigotry are at it again. This time they’re mad because McDonalds has embraced the ‘gay agenda’
McDonald’s CEO: Company will put full resources behind gay agenda
McDonald’s has signed on to a nationwide effort to promote “gay” and “lesbian” business ventures.
According to McDonaldâ€™s CEO Jim Skinner, McDonaldâ€™s will aggressively promote the homosexual agenda. In remarks on McDonald’s Web site concerningÂ the companyÂ becoming a memberÂ of the National GayÂ & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC),Â Skinner wrote: “Being a socially responsible organization is a fundamental part of who we are. We have an obligation to use our size and resources to make a difference in the world â€¦ and we do.”
The company gave an undisclosed amount of money to the NGLCC in return for being recognized as a major promoter of the homosexual agenda. In return, NGLCC placed Richard Ellis, vice president of communications of McDonaldâ€™s USA, on the NGLCC Board of Directors.
Ellis was quoted as saying: “I’m thrilled to join the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce team and ready to get 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.”
McDonald’s refused to comment to World Net Daily on the placement of its executive on the board of the “gay” advocacy organization but did send an e-mail confirming the corporation’s support for the agenda of the homosexual business lobby.
“McDonald’s is indeed a Corporate Partner and Organizational Ally of NGLCC. Our vice president of U.S. communications, Richard Ellis, was recently elected to its board of directors,” said Heidi M. Barker, senior director of media relations for McDonaldâ€™s. NGLCC describes itself as promoting the LGBT community first and always, including same sex marriage.
NGLCC gives credit to sponsors such as McDonald’s for its financial and other support that helps in its work. “Through the commitment of our corporate partners, the NGLCC has been able to advance the ideas and causes of the LGBT business community,” the Chamber said.
While I’m not a usual McDonald’s customer I applaud them for working with the NGLCC. I should list my business too.
But the thing that gets me is this whole ‘gay agenda’ thing. The only agenda I have is equality for all. It means no amendments to deny rights to people simply because of who they love, it means keeping your religious opinion to yourself. The churches gave us centuries of absolutist rulers and today those same churches wish to rule us all.
I say no to dogma and doctrine of the churches be they Catholic, Protestant, Jewish or Muslim. They have no place in the modern secular world. Their only function is to divide us
But I say we stand together and fight against those who would make us second class citizens. Move away from the religious into the spiritual, expel hatred from your heart. You don’t need a church, chapel, or what have you. Get closer to your fellow man. Remember, churches only serve to divide us. The have a motive to do so, because without membership they have no money and without money the clerical class doesn’t eat, they’d have to get real jobs.

The season when those wingnuts come out with their anti-abortion screed. I guess it’s too cold for these pussies to take to the streets, but then that wasn’t effective anyway. Let’s shame the legislators into making abortion illegal, that’s a much better goal for them.
So I always look at the current photo album on our local rag, The Providence Journal. Today I saw a picture that sums up my feelings on those who are against abortion. They’re so ugly that you wouldn’t want to fuck them anyway. Case in point, this picture:
Notice the fellow holding the Stop Abortion Now sign with that little pout on his face. Would someone please let him know that he looks like Princess Tiny Meat and that his affected pout is so last season.
Then there’s dour Bob to PTM’s right. He doesn’t look all that enthused and I just bet he’s there at the behest of his nagging pseudo-Christian wife. Poor guy probably never gets a moment of peace and he probably looks forward to death since that would put an end to his wife’s nagging bullshit.
To the lower right we have the obligatory breeder with her spawn. Great, another mouth to feed and I notice they didn’t get a shot of daddy in the picture. Why is that?
And to the lower left we have the requisite middle aged women who think their shit doesn’t stink.
I heap my scorn on the guys more than the women because the guys should fucking know better. It is not our right to say who can and cannot have an abortion. And if this country didn’t have such a fucked up attitude about sex maybe there’d be fewer abortions. Who’s to say. But I think the author of Freakonomics made a very good point, the drop in crime rates of the 90’s and on is directly related to the legalization of abortion.
Because time and again, if you force a woman to carry a child to term that doesn’t want the child the state is loathe to step in after the fact. So the child is born into poverty, and poverty breeds crime. It’s that simple.
And here in Rhode Island our governor (Yes, with a little ‘g’ because this asshole doesn’t deserve the honorific capitalization of his title) Don the Asshole Carcieri is pushing to move welfare services to faith based initiatives. Ok Don, let me ask you something. Other than spending millions on proselytizing and missionary work exactly what have the churches done to help the poor. Oh some run meal programs, and some act as shelters. But cut welfare down and the churches won’t know what to do with all those people and I’m more than just a bit concerned about using faith based because there’s always that recruitment component.
All in all he’s been a horrible governor. Compared to his predecessor Linc Almond, Carcieri is to the right of Hitler.
So sure Don, cut benefits for the poor and the elderly. Then watch the backlash. It’s good thing you’re only in office for two more years because you’ll obviously go down as Rhode Island’s worst governor.

There’s a show in the UK called Speed. In it they tested the difference between someone driving straight, and then the same after they’d smoked marijuana.
It turns out that the guy drove BETTER under the influence than when he wasn’t. I can sort of back that up but my experience is with alcohol. My friend Chris couldn’t drive for shit when he was sober, but put a couple beers in him and he drove like a pro. We could never explain it but now I have a better idea why. He was a bit more relaxed but at the same time a little paranoid about getting stopped (Even in the early 80’s it was possible to get pulled over for drunk driving, though the limits weren’t quite so ridiculous back then, I mean honestly, .08? I recall it being .12 when I was a kid. No greater incidence of drunk driving then than there is now.
Anyhow, I won’t drive after I’ve had a couple drinks. Fortunately I live in a place where I can either imbibe at a bar, pub, or restaurant and either walk home or take public transit.
But this video is very interesting. It appears that driving under the influence of marijuana really doesn’t have a negative effect on ones driving ability. Granted, this isn’t at all a scientific study but I’d love to see someone do such a thing. We’re finally seeing and end to the FUD spread by ONDCP . This is just one such video:
The danger of channel surfing January 27, 2007Posted by truthspew in brainwashing, child abuse, christianity, doctors, keep your faith to yourself, religion.
*** UPDATE ***
Found this little clip from the special on YouTube. It’s one of the more galling segments. I imagine it won’t be long before the entire special is on YouTube.
*** END UPDATE ***
So I get home from running errands this morning, and still have some to do this afternoon, one of which is waiting for Cox to get someone out here only to find that the problem I’d reported isn’t a problem anymore.
Anyhow I’m going through the HBO channels and I come across something on HBO-E (Channel 200 on Cox-RI) that irks me but I have to watch because it’s kind of like a train wreck. The show is one hour long and called Friends of God: A Road Trip. The show is written/produced/directed by Alexandra Pelosi, a San Francisco native and I’d be willing to lay a bet that she’s house Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s daughter. Oh happy day!
What irks me most is the young kids saying they don’t believe in evolution. How the hell could they believe when they’ve only been exposed to the tip of the iceberg. And when the kids are asked who told them that evolution was bunk the answer didn’t surprise me. It was their parents.
Then of course there are the home schoolers who want to inculcate the message of Christianity into their kids before they’re even in pre-school. Those people should have child abuse charges filed against them.
As Richard Dawkins likes to point out, they aren’t Christian children, they’re children. A child has no reference point to evaluate religion so like Dawkins I consider forcing it on them to be wrong.
The other day a co-worker and I got on this very subject. He mentioned that his daughter is nearly two years old and he and his wife have no intention of baptizing her in the Catholic faith or any other until such time as she’s old enough to understand religion. I’m so glad I work with enlightened people.
If you’ve got EOD/VOD on your cable provider, or a DVR I recommend recording this little gem. So be careful while channel surfing, you might find something that raises your blood pressure and foreshadows the Christian Theocracy that’s coming to the United States.
