AFA Upset that McDonald's Sponors SF Pride July 29, 2008Posted by truthspew in AFA, Gay Pride, Gay rights, objectionable material, prudes, puritanical, religion, secular society, stupidity.
Oh this is great. The AFA has their nads in a lather again. This time its over McDonald’s being a sponsor in the San Francisco Gay Pride parade and festival.
McDonald’s sponsors gay pride parade
McDonald’s says they “stand by and support our people to live and work in a society free of discrimination and harassment,” here is what they ! won’t tell you. McDonald’s helped sponsor the San Francisco Gay Pride Parade. Want to see what McDonald’s considers worthy of support? Click here. (Warning: These photos are extremely offensive and graphic.)
AFA asked McDonald’s to remain neutral in the culture war. The company refused, stating they will continue to support the gay agenda including same-sex marriage. AFA has called for a boycott of McDonald’s restaurants.
McDonald’s spokesman Bill Whitman told the Washington Post that those (even Christians) who oppose homosexual marriage are motivated by hate, saying that “… hatred has no place in our culture.”
This boycott is not about hiring homosexuals or how homosexual employees are treated. It is about McDonald’s choosing to put the full resources of their corporation behind promoting the homosexual agenda.
To help promote the gay agenda, McDonald’s paid $20,000 to become an official “organizational ally and corporate partner” of the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce and secure a seat on the group’s board of directors. The NGLCC lobbies against laws protecting marriage as between a man and a woman.
Get ready for the link to the images they find so shocking. First of all, in only one picture do I see a gent with it all hanging out. The rest of the pix have genitalia covered. It’s just they object to showing so much skin I suppose.
They even put up this warning:
WARNING: The images below contain male full-frontal nudity. Please be aware and exercise caution before viewing these images. If you are under 18, please leave this page!
Ok, you’ve been warned. Prepare to be scandalized.
Note that at the very bottom of the pix is one of a little girl with a balloon and the caption reads “And, sadly, yes. This little girl was exposed to everything you see above. Thanks, McDonald’s.”
Yes, thank you McDonald’s for not caving in to the demands of a bunch of religious fuckwits. Because that is precisely what the people at the AFA are, they are the people who would like to force their religious world view on the rest of us.
Christianity has had a roughly two millennium chance to get things right and they’ve failed miserably at the task. It is time for us to move past the religious bullshit and embrace a concept called personal responsibility.
Move toward spirituality and that spirit tells you to love one another, not start angry pogroms because a man has sex with a man, or a woman with a woman, or even a man with a woman. You’d be surprised, some of the more mentally unbalanced in the AFA think that even straight people shouldn’t have sex, or at least not sex that they’ve put the AFA stamp of approval upon.
I think we still need Gay Pride (Yes, I know, LGBTQ….) because every day we’re surrounded by straight pride, including the asinine blabbering of the people at the AFA. We see PDA’s, we see it in the majority of literature, television, movies, etc.
And then there is the homophobic attitude of the AFA. I guarantee you there’s more than one closeted homo in that organization. Look at the track record of others who were vociferously anti-gay. I’ll use Ted Haggard as an example. Yep, don’t piss off a gay hustler is the only advice I could give to Teddy Boy. Look at the most homophobic congressmen who’ve been caught with pants down and worshiping at the altar of the cock.
We’re EVERYWHERE. And we need to make it clear that we won’t take second class citizenship. And this gay man will not stand for it any longer. I’m politically active too.

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.

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.
Today's Religious Fuckwit June 6, 2007Posted by truthspew in doctors, gay bashing, Gay rights, keep your faith to yourself, puritanical, radicalism, religion, stupidity, vigilance.
I know that fuckwit isn’t a term everyone is familiar with so click the word to see the definition.
Anyhow I have to post the idiots letter verbatim since the Providence Journal requires registration and I’m loathe to subject my readers to that. The letter was of course titled “Lust is not love!” which geeks like me would write as lust != love.
Mr. Paul Kokoski of Hamilton, Ontario is a darling of the NY Times, Washington Post, and now the Providence Journal. For variations of his letters supporting Benny the Rat (Otherwise known as Pope Benedict the XVI) click here, and here is the google search.
Apparently this guy doesn’t stop. And it doesn’t matter where you live, he’s coming to get you. If you’d like to contact Mr. Kokoski send him an email.
I present his latest screed:
Lust is not love!
01:00 AM EDT on Wednesday, June 6, 2007
Concerning the April 24 letter “Love one another” by Linda S. Chandler: Many who support homosexual acts tend to recklessly characterize those in society who disagree with them as homophobic — the term “homophobia” itself intended to denote a disorder. Contrary to what Ms. Chandler writes, however, it is possible to condemn sin without condemning the person who engages in immoral activity.
All parents are aware of this when they, for good reason, discipline their children. The parent still loves the child despite the child’s failings.
The same sentiments are found in the Bible and the teachings of Jesus.
Jesus, who came to fulfill the law of the Old Testament, did not condemn the woman caught in adultery. However, he made it clear to her that she was to “go and sin no more.” This latter part of Christ’s teaching is often neglected by those, such as Chandler, who wish to offer a selective interpretation of Scripture in order to justify their own desires and whims.
The Bible, however, clearly and unequivocally condemns homosexual acts (Gen 1:27-28; Gen 2:24; Matt 19: 4-6; Rom 1:24-27; 1 Cor 6:10; 1 Tim 1:10 etc.). Sin is not about “inclusion, love and tolerance.” Ultimately, Chandler has misinterpreted Christianity by confusing love with lust.
Indeed, once again he trots out tired religious arguments. And he makes a very big stretch with some of them, including the Genesis citations.
He violates his own beliefs because what he is preaching is not about inclusion, love and tolerance. It is about exclusion and hatred. Mr. Kokoski wants to be your bedroom police. I was rather surprised he didn’t bring out the old familiar citation from Leviticus.
You can’t choose which sections of the bible you wish to believe. It’s an all or nothing thing if you have faith. That’s why I find citation of bible verses to be so offensive, it misses the OTHER message of the book.
Such other messages can be found in Luke 10:27, Luke 6:37, or dare I suggest it, 6:41. Perhaps John 13:34, John 15:12,17, Romans 12:9-10, 15-21 and so on. It appears that the messages of love far outnumber the messages of hate proposed by Kokoski.
While he has to write letter after letter to newspapers I just take the shotgun approach and post it here. Mr. Kokoski needs his own blog so we can all blacklist it.

This article in the Washington Post isn’t much of a surprise to me. By way of background let me explain that I am the product of twelve years of education in Catholic schools first at St. Ann School then at LaSalle Academy. During at least one of those twelve years we read and studied the Bible from cover to cover. College was a secular deal at Johnson & Wales University but by then I needed no more of religion.
The issue for me was that in addition to the Catholic schools trying to push dogma on me, they also taught me how to think critically. That’s a dangerous thing for religion for once you can think, you are then able to see the inconsistencies and outright falsehoods of the Bible.
Anyhow what struck me was that those who proclaim they’re religious couldn’t tell who Noah’s wife was (It wasn’t mentioned in the Bible, but the Jews name her Naamah for Beautiful One.). Nor could they tell who gave the Sermon on the Mount (Doh!, Christ himself!), or better yet any one of the authors of the gospels (Matthew, Mark, John and Luke and the jury is still out on Mary). These are the same folks who think “In God We Trust” has always been on U.S. Currency and the Pledge of Allegiance. It hasn’t, it’s only been there since 1954 and it’s original purpose was to show the godless communists who was top dog.
It astounds me that people don’t know the basic facts about religion, let alone civic government. But then I had the benefit of what I consider a good education. Unfortunately that is falling further out of reach for everyone. A co-worker has her daughter enrolled in a Catholic school and it’s almost $4K a year. Yikes!
But if you have a child, I urge you to educate that child as best you can. And while you’re at it, educate yourself.
This is the video that prompted me to leave Google/YouTube/Blogger February 13, 2007Posted by truthspew in atheism, Derren Brown, doctors, Islam, puritanical, radicalism, religion.
I left not because I found the video offensive. I was rather delighted that someone pointed out that Islam is not the peaceful religion they purport it to be.
Yep, this is the video that caused YouTube(Google) management to remove all of Nick Gisburne’s videos and then delete his YouTube account.
I encourage everyone to at the very least move away from Blogger anyhow. WordPress is quite nice. I’m still getting used to it.
