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.

Dear ,

According to McDonald’s CEO Jim Skinner, McDonald’s will aggressively promote the homosexual agenda. In remarks on McDonald’s Web site concerning the company becoming a member of the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC), 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 … 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 McDonald’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 McDonald’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.

Sign up for the AFA’s email alerts, I did it some time ago and anytime they really piss me off I post it here.

The latest is the following:

Homosexual Day of Silence – Is Your Child’s School on the list?

Dear ,

Because of the action of concerned parents, hundreds of schools have removed their school as a listed participant in the pro-homosexual “Day of Silence.” You can join the fight for your children too!

On, Friday, April 25, several thousand schools across the nation will be observing “Day of Silence (DOS).” DOS is a nationwide push to promote the homosexual lifestyle in public schools.

When AFA alerted parents of this public school classroom disruption by homosexual student activists, many took action immediately! If you haven’t gotten involved, it’s critical that you do so today!

A simple phone call or letter to school administrators, telling them your child will not attend school the day it observes DOS, may be enough to cause some participating schools to change their plans. Sample letter here.

Please listen to a 60-second radio ad warning parents about Day of Silence, then forward this email to your local Christian or conservative radio station. Ask them to broadcast it as a Public Service Announcement (PSA)! MP3 file or WAV file

Click here for Frequently Asked Questions about the Day of Silence.

In the past week alone, over 200 schools have announced they are dropping plans to participate. Please, get involved for the sake or your children, and all children, today!

Take Action!

What should parents do? Check with your local school principal to see if your child’s school will be participating in DOS. If the school is participating, notify other parents about DOS and ask them to join in keeping their children out of school on that day.

Here is a partial list of schools which are expected to participate in DOS: If your school is listed, call your local school and ascertain whether they officially or passively allow students to observe “Day of Silence.” If your school is listed, please double-check with your local school to see if the school is actually sponsoring DOS. Sometimes the “participation” turns out to be a handful of kids who are saying they have a homosexual club and are observing this protest day, but without school endorsement. We sincerely hope your school, if listed, is not actually an official sponsor. If it is not, we will take them off the list, if a school official asks us to do so. Please e-mail your correction to webmaster@missionamerica.com.

Some tips:

1. Be sure of the date that DOS is planned for your school. (The national date is April 25, but some schools observe DOS on a different date.)
2. Inform the school of your intention to keep your child home on that date and explain why. Click here for a sample letter.
3. Explain to your children why you’re taking a stand: Homosexual behavior is not an innate identity; it is a sinful, unnatural and destructive behavior. No school should advance a physically, emotionally, and spiritually destructive sexual lifestyle to students.
4. Schools do not have to tolerate students remaining silent in class. Schools can adopt policies that require parental consent for students to attend any club, including those premised on sexual orientation or gender identity. Click here for more information from Attorney Mat Staver with Liberty Counsel who provides free information to parents, students, and schools regarding their rights associated with noncompliance on the Day of Silence.

Sincerely,

Donald E. Wildmon, Founder and Chairman American Family Association

The PDF file can be found here. I suggest we use the letter except modify it in support of the Day of Silence.

I’m so sick and tired of being told that I’m pushing an agenda, I’m not doing so and neither are the other gay people I know. I haven’t even gotten my copy of the gay agenda nor have many people that I know.

I only know that I hope Wildmon suffers a debilitating anyeurism or something equally painful. I know, it’s evil of me but when they keep putting out shit like this it irks me something fierce.

When he spouts religious bullshit like this:

3. Explain to your children why you’re taking a stand: Homosexual behavior is not an innate identity; it is a sinful, unnatural and destructive behavior. No school should advance a physically, emotionally, and spiritually destructive sexual lifestyle to students.

I feel that I have to take this apart, point by point. No homosexuality is not an identity, it is my sexuality. Otherwise I am a person and deserve to be treated like every other person, not discriminated against for who it is that I chose to love.

By stating is sinful, unnatural and destructive Wildmon is clearly invoking religious dogma which has no place in secular and moral society. Since I don’t believe in the Judeo-Christian God, it isn’t sinful. And when you look at the Biblical argument, lest we forget that the Bible also sanctions slavery, women as chattel etc. Yet we conveniently say those are taken out of context while the prohibition against homosexual content is constantly bandied about. They don’t talk about the other parts of Leviticus, particularly those indicating one shouldn’t eat shellfish, or sleep with ones wife when she is menstruating.

Since homosexuality isn’t exclusive to homo sapiens I can conclude that once again Wildmon is pulling this out of his ass. This is typical of all the religious characters I’ve run across in my lifetime. They’ll take a few passages out of context to justify their discomfort with and bigotry against a class of people.

As far as being destructive, how so? Just because we can’t procreate naturally doesn’t mean we can’t have a positive role in society. But the religious would deny that to us.

Calling homosexuality physically destructive is interesting. Perhaps he should talk to Dr. John Corvino about the “parts don’t fit” argument.

Emotionally we’re no different from the heterosexuals. We have our well balances, our slightly off kilter, and out batshit crazy too. There is no difference whatsoever since emotionally we span the spectrum.

The spirituality part is what shows Wildmon’s hand. He’s a hateful religious bigot. If I’m wrong and there is a heaven and hell, Wildmon is most certainly headed for hell. Actually I’d like to create that hell for him. I’d put him in a room with a bunch of hot guys sucking and fucking. It’d be fun to watch Wildmon’s head explode.

Another thing related to Dr. Corvino is the statement about calling it a lifestyle. No, it’s our life! Not lifestyle. To imply style means we chose it. I know in my case I didn’t choose to be gay, I have been gay all my life.

In short, I’d like to personally tell Wildmon to take a flying leap off a steep cliff.

A Homophobe Strikes March 11, 2008

Recently I posted a short entry about the AFA’s insistence that good Christians keep their kids home from school on the National Day of Silence.

When I think about it, that’s exactly what the Christofascisti would prefer. Kids that are ignorant and obedient. Look at the Phelps clan as a microcosm of this type of society.

Recently it may have come to your attention that I approved a comment by a homophobe. I did this to expose the core of belief of the homophobes.

There should be no surprise it’s religion, after all Steve@centurytel.net did tell me that I was going to hell. What this particular homophobe doesn’t get is that I’m not going to back down. I’m going to call him what he is, a homophobe and religious hypocrite. Why hypocrite? In the first case it is not his to judge. From John 8:7 – Let he who is without sin shall cast the first stone.

I just bet he’s basing his hatred of gay people on Leviticus. But does he take one moment to read the rest of that book? Of course he didn’t because had he done so he would have found that eating shellfish, sleeping with ones wife while she is unclean, etc. are all abominations in the eyes of his alleged god.

It is my opinion that all the Semitic/Monotheistic religions exist to suppress the rights of people, be they women, gay men and women or the like. In order for the monotheistic religions to exist they must focus on the concept of the other. They must also hate this other, or at least try to convert the other.

This other won’t be converted. I started out as Christian, a Catholic no less. Yes, a papist bastard. However at a rather early age I realized it was all bullshit. I do give some props to the authors of the New Testament books though, with the exception of St. Thomas Aquinas, that homophobic asshole. The basic principle is one of love and harmony, about the many before the one. Over the past century or so the Christians have gotten this so wrong that it isn’t funny. They allowed a few pastors with agendas to infiltrate their ranks and this is what we have as a result.

I do realize that CenturyTel is smack dab in the middle of the bible belt, but won’t he be surprised when he dies and realizes that this is the only chance he gets. Except he won’t realize it. As I like to say, you die, you’re dead, that’s it. You get one chance to get it right, to love thy neighbor as thyself.

While you’re at it, keep your religion to yourself. I don’t want to hear it, nor do I see any value in it.

Yes, I’m one of those godless homosexuals who’d like to see religion driven back into the woodwork.

To hell with you Bishop Tobin August 2, 2007

There is a case currently before the Rhode Island Supreme Court regarding whether the family court can dissolve a gay marriage.

The state AG, Patrick Lynch has already said there’s nothing in the law the precludes it from happening. Since his sister Margaret (Peg) is a lesbian this doesn’t surprise me but I still applaud the AG’s willingness to come forward on this issue.

Governor Don Carcieri says that marriage is defined as one man, one woman. I expect that from Carcieri since he’s a horses ass and really isn’t qualified to be governor, a more suitable office would be dog catcher. Typical behavior for a Republican (Hereby referred to as Repug.)

But the one who really raises my hackles is Bishop Thomas J. Tobin of the Diocese of Providence. In classic fashion he says that there will be profound and radical consequences. The thing that really bugs me is that the Bishop never says what those consequences might turn out to be. Father John Codega gave a foreshadowing of the Bishop’s sentiments during testimony for the Marraige Equality bill in the house. I’ve written about Codega before and suffice to say the man shouldn’t be a priest but an attack dog. But Codega’s argument was that straight institutions needed to be ‘protected’ from gay people.

Anyhow I’m left to imagine the consequences. If I use my biblical studies as a rough guide any one of the following will occur should RI allow a gay person to marry the person that he/she loves.

  • Man marries animal – the slippery slope argument at its finest.
  • Cat and dog mate and have offspring, do we call it a Cog or a Dat?
  • The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse will certainly make an appearance if Bishop Tobin is to be believed
  • Maybe the rivers will boil. Then again with global warming pretty much confirmed on all accounts this isn’t hard to believe
  • Maybe the rivers will run red with blood of slain Christians. If only that were the case, maybe then the rest of us could get on with our lives in peace without interference from the church.
  • The reality of it is that none of the above will happen if gay people are allowed to cement their relationships by getting married. This has been proven time and again in Massachusetts.

    And to the Bishop I say fuck you, and to hell with you. I’d like to take that big crucifix you wear and shove it up where the sun doesn’t shine. Maybe then you’ll see the light. Except there is no hell so my fondest wish won’t come true. I can wish that he live in interesting times, and it looks like we might make that a reality for the man.

    Once again, our Perennial Favorite gets her ass handed to her February 2, 2007

    So Shirley Phelps-Roper and her spawn were on Tyra Banks’ talk show. Tyra handled it well. If I ever run into Mrs. Roper I can tell you I won’t handle it well at all. As a flaming atheist she and I might come to blows.

    But her spawn – they’re brainwashed idiots. The best thing that could possibly happen is for a freak accident of nature to wipe out the entire Phelps clan. And if nature isn’t willing, there are always other ways.

    Anyhow, in this instance Mrs. Roper was very calm. Not her usual crazy self. But I have to wonder why people keep putting that bitch on television or giving her and her crazy group any more press time. I can see the entertainment value of it, but hasn’t it been overplayed already going all the way back to old Fred himself?

    The past few months have been delightful. First we saw the Reverend Ted Haggard exposed as a homosexual homophobe. Then of course we hear that the Republican darling Coulter is being investigated for some election fraud.

    And now we get to watch our favorite fruitcake, Shirley Phelps Roper sell crazy on none other than the Faux News channel. But this time Phelps-Roper gets her ass handed to her on television.

    It seems that Phelps-Roper has become a cause celebre with the American news establishment. And this video shows what happens:

    How people destroy hatred December 10, 2006

    Posted by truthspew in Dr. Alfred Blalock, Dr. Vivien Thomas, homophobia, racism.

    I’m watching Something the Lord Made with Alan Rickman as Dr. Alfred Blalock and Mos Def as Vivien Thomas.

    I’m struck by how blatant racism was back then. At the very beginning of the movie Dr. Blalock and Mr. Thomas were in the halls of Johns-Hopkins looking at paintings of the greats in medicine. When the security guard approached Thomas and asked him to use the back entrance, Blalock stepped forward and identified himself as chief of surgery yet the guard still held fast to those ‘rules’.

    But in the end, Blalock didn’t let the fact that Thomas was black impact his opinion of the man. Watch the movie, it’s definitely worthwhile.

    I cannot imagine what it must have been, or what it must be like to have that kind of institutional racism present in my life.

    But fortunately I’ve had my eyes opened on numerous occasions. Keyron is black and even today people write him off because of the color of his skin. If they knew him, they’d find a delightful, smart, and talented guy, but they can’t see past the color of his skin.

    When I see it happen I get very annoyed. What will it take to enlighten other people that race isn’t a reason to hate.

    While I’m on that very subject, it seems the homophobes have a little secret of their own. There have been a number of studies done and it seems that when you show a homophobe a picture of a naked man or men having sex, their penises tumesce. But they try so hard to suppress those urges that they come out as the most hateful people. The Reverend Ted Haggard comes immediately to mind but there are so many others.

    Hatred is such a waste of time. Just imagine how the world would be if we abandoned hatred without reason.
