Culture Wars at McDonalds

Read the article:

Most notable is the opening two paragraphs:

Those who oppose homosexuality for religious reasons are participating in "hate," according to an official for McDonald's, the worldwide purveyor of Big Macs and Happy Meals.

"Hatred has no place in our culture," corporate spokesman Bill Whitman told the Washington Post in response to a campaign by the American Family Association for a boycott of the burger-and-fries outlets because of the corporation's advocacy for the homosexual lifestyle.

The boycott of MickeyD's is not about hiring or serving homosexuals... it's about McDonalds as a corporation putting its full force and favor behind the homosexual agenda.

"Mr. Whitman has intentionally avoided addressing the reason for the boycott. This boycott is not about hiring gays or how gay employees are treated. It is about McDonald's choosing to put the full weight of their corporation behind promoting their agenda," the AFA alert said.

Things are heating up in this area.  Keep a watch on the homosexual marriage amendment in California.  I believe it will be a watershed.  If it passes we won't be long for a "hate" speech crime for a pastor saying that homosexual behavior/marriage/lifestyle is sinful from the pulpit.

Note also this story:

Here a man is suing publishers for "changing" bible translations to make them anti-homosexual.
