McDonald’s has relented and has pledged to be neutral in the culture wars. The boycott is over!
It seems to me that there is a huge spiritual battle being waged right now. This battle revolves around the subject of homosexuality.
Homosexual activists are fighting hard to make their beliefs the law of this country. When I say “Homosexual Activists,” I mean anyone who is pushing the homosexual agenda in our government. These people can be lawyers, judges, lobbyists, people who hold a political office, people holding a gay pride parade or festival promoting the homosexual cause, and even simply people who give a financial contribution to homosexual organizations working to push forward their agenda. Friends, they are fighting hard to make the wishes of a 3% minority the law of the land.
Recently, the American Family Association (www.afa.net) found out that McDonald’s has donated $20,000 to the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce in exchange for membership in the NGLCC and a seat on the group’s board of directors.
The NGLCC lobbies Congress on a wide range of issues including the promotion of homosexual marriage. The AFA asked McDonald’s to remain neutral in this area and to withdraw their name and logo from the NGLCC’s website. McDonald’s has refused. Instead, they openly support the gay agenda and they have accused those who oppose same sex marriage as being motivated by hate (http://boycottmcdonalds.com/detail.aspx?id=102).
I feel like this is an advancement of the ranks of our enemy. I also feel like McDonalds thinks they can do this and get away with it because well, they are only what—the world’s richest fast food chain restaurant? And surely people will never stop patronizing their business! Well, I am asking you to do just that. Would you consider boycotting McDonalds with me? Why not make a statement that McDonalds cannot forget? Why not stop giving them our money so they will not be able turn around and give it to a 3% minority trying to re-write law for the rest of us?
The thing that is disturbing about McDonald’s supporting such a group is that they cater their product in large part to children and portray themselves as a family-friendly organization. This is the outrage. The image they have long fought to establish in our minds is one that is pro-family. BUT not only are they supporting the NGLCC, they are speaking against those who do not support the beliefs of the NGLCC. One of their executives said that those who are against same-sex marriage as filled with hate.
Will we make a difference in this fight? For sure! Will we accomplish our end of persuading McDonalds to stay neutral on this issue? I don’t know, but let’s try.
Here is what I do know: Our country has strayed so far as to allow a vulgar and lewd marching display in what is known as the Gay Pride Parade (not to mention Hollywood’s unashamed promotion of the practice) and several states are considering redefining the institution of marriage. Are we going to fall back? Our enemy advances and we fall back. Our enemy advances more and, again, we fall back. We lie down and let them walk right over us. Remember, all that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing!
I have included below a link to sign the boycott of McDonalds. You can also call your local McDonalds and, in a polite manner, let them know that you are disappointed in their decision to support the NGLCC and that you will be boycotting their business.
Also, feel free to copy this message and send it out to as many of your friends that you believe will support the cause or you can even write your own!
