McDonald’s has weighed in on the culture war on the side of the gay and lesbian cause. It is pledge the use of McDonald’s name, logo, and endorsement to the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC). That website now proudly lists McDonald’s as a “Corporate Partner.”
The American Family Association says that McDonald’s status as a corporate partner means their financial and symbolic support greatly aids anti-family causes such as same-sex “marriage.” At the 31,000 McDonald’s restaurants, expect the Gay and Lesbian welcome mat to be extended.
The membership in the Gay Chamber of Commerce required a corporate donation by McDonald’s of $20,000. However, the tie goes deeper. Richard Ellis, Vice President of Communications for McDonald’s USA, now sits on the NGLCC’s board and has stated on the NGLCC website, “I’m thrilled to join the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce and ready to go to work.”
The NGLCC frequently lobbies Congress on same-sex “marriage” and other aspects of the gay agenda.
The NGLCC website proudly lists McDonalds, along with hamburger rival Burger King, US film giant Kodak, AT&T, among 87 supporting major companies, saying, “Through the commitment of our corporate partners, the NGLCC has been able to advance the ideas and causes of the LGBT business community.”
Dr. Donald Wildmon of the American Family Association wrote McDonald’s asking the company remain neutral when it came to the homosexual agenda. McDonald’s Global Chief Diversity Officer Pat Harris responded that the move was designed to “take this opportunity to reaffirm our position on diversity.”
So McDonald’s, as a corporation, has chosen to put the full weight of their corporation behind promoting the homosexual agenda, including homosexual marriage.”
