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.
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!

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.
Americans don't know their religion May 27, 2007Posted by truthspew in doctors, education, puritanical, radicalism, religion.

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.
Evangelism really is scary shit February 13, 2007Posted by truthspew in doctors, evangelism, radicalism, religion.
Ok – watch this video. If it doesn’t scare the shit out of you then you’re either an evangelical yourself, or you’re a fucking idiot.
Here’s some things to watch out for:
Towards the beginning you’ve got the Answers in Genesis asshole doing the ape comparison. I mean come on, he says he doesn’t believe we came from ape like creatures. We most definitely do share a common ancestor with chimpanzees and the great apes and even monkeys. He’s trying to look at evolution from a linear perspective instead of the branching tree that evolution really is.
At 1:46 you’ve got Mrs. Super Mom stating “Most Christians are viewed as ignorant because we believe whats in the Bible.” No cupcake, the problem we have is that you’re not using multiple sources to bolster your beliefs. One book does not a science make.
But it gets better, at 2:05 said cupcake mentions that the bible is easier to explain to children, and then goes on to say that the bible makes more sense to her. She clearly falls in the fucking idiot category.
Then at 2:15 you’ve got the charming Buddy Davis. Some of Mr. Davis choice sayings include:
1) The bible is the history book of the Universe. No, cosmology is the history book of the universe. Thank you for playing Mr. Davis.
2) He asks the kids if they believe that man and dinosaurs did live together like it says in Genesis.
3) Most bothersome is when he says that he’s teaching the kids about the authority of scripture. Authority? Whose? A non-existent deity?
4) He goes on about the preconceived idea that dinosaurs died out millions of years ago before people. It’s not preconceived, there’s plenty of proof that MOST dinosaurs died out before proto humans came on the scene.
3:13 the song – Job 40:15 a mighty creature the Job must have known…Behemoth is a dinosaur. Davis ought to be beat into a pulp for that one.
Then there is the one that irks me most, at 4:20 it’s asked “Who should you always trust first, god or the scientist?” and the answe of course is “God – and I want you to remember that. Nothing like indoctrinating kids who don’t have the mental faculties to understand that its bullshit.
At 4:37 we hear that the bible contains powerful weapons in this spiritual war. A more powerful weapon is the truth. God does not exist.
At 4:47 one of the kids is asked about belief in evolution and answer that he believes in creation because it says so in the bible.
At 5:09: One child is asked if he believes in evolution or creationism and answers that God created the world. When asked who told him that he paused and said it was his parents. Those parents ought to be brought up on child abuse charges.
Then at 5:34 there’s Mr. Airhead who wants to be a biochemist and work at the Institute for Creation Science in Arizona, and get this, the little bastard thinks he’ll do Nobel prize worthy work. Deluded doesn’t even begin to explain the insanity of that little statement.
And feast your eyes on 5:53 where a girl tells the interviewer that she isn’t sure if the interviewer maybe studied all the facts. Oh crazy, crazy, crazy. She goes on to say that school systems are biased toward evolution – only showing one side of the story. As if the bible isn’t only ONE side of a story?
These kids are all in for a rude awakening. But then so are we if we don’t start paying attention to the this crap.
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.
Now we know why the regular Muslims didn't object January 17, 2007Posted by truthspew in Islam, kuffaar, radicalism, secular society.
When Britain’s Channel 4 did an expose on Muslims in the UK lo and behold we find out they’re preaching hatred. No surprises there.
The question is, what do we do about this? I say if they want an Islamic state, we ship their asses back to that fucking desert. I know, I know, this is eliminasionist of me but when push comes to shove – let them have their way of life, away from us.
That a member of Parliament chooses 20 Green Lane as his favorite charity should tell us something. That they shouldn’t be allowed to run for office, that’s what it should tell us. And if these fuckers think they’ve been oppressed now, just wait.
It also comes out that the Saudi sect plays big into the UK mosques. That’s Wahabi Islam by the way, yet one more reason we should achieve energy independence and tell the House of Saud to go pound sand. Because where do you think the Wahabi clerics get their money? The House of Saud of course. Not content to just infect the mosques, the Saudi’s also teach this crap in their schools, colleges and universities included.
Here’s the thing that bugs me. It has been conclusively proven that the Old Testament was written for the in-group, ie. the Jews of that time. Hence the all-fire hatred of outsiders. Mohammed that drug addled madman enhanced it and made it so that hatred of those who didn’t share your religious views could be considered part of the out-group and therefore could be attacked as kuffaar.
This is one kuffaar that isn’t buying that bovine effluent.
And finally part 3:
Oh I just love this one. One of the clerics says that they cannot accept the rule of secular society, that they have to rule themselves AND all others. Hell to the no! If an Islamic theocracy every got control first thing I’d be doing is buying a shitload of ammunition, then I’d be picking off said clerics on a regular basis.
And that some of these groups are associated with Sayyid Qutb’s Muslim Brotherhood. Qutb is a son of a bitch – came here to the U.S., didn’t like what he saw and then went back and started agitating in the mid-east. I’m glad they killed the bastard. What I’m not happy about is that he’s been made something of a martyr.
The UK government should shut down those mosques post haste. And while they’re at it, why not shut down the Christian churches and Jewish temples and do the world a favor.
Then we atheists won’t have to deal with them anymore.
I’m just so sick and tired of hearing both Christians and Muslims think they can run the world. They cannot and they’ve proven it time and again.
There is more to these videos they just haven’t been posted yet. It’s scary – these Muslims can’t tolerate OUR society and our rules, but they want US to live by THEIR rules.
