What about the hamburgers?

What about the hamburgers?

You would think a large public company, especially one that markets heavily toward children, would at a minimum remain neutral when it comes to issues like homosexuality. McDonald’s apparently doesn’t agree as they unapologetically endorsed homosexuality by making a $20,000 donation to the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC).

The donation gives McDonald’s membership in the NGLCC as well as a seat on the group’s board of directors. The NGLCC is a homosexual activists group that lobbies elected official to pass pro-homosexual legislation, including laws to legalize homosexual marriage.

The American Family Association (AFA) has requested that McDonald’s simply take a neutral position on homosexual matters. Pat Harris, Global Chief Diversity Officer, Vice President, Inclusion & Diversity for McDonald’s (can you believe McDonald’s even has a position with that title?), responded “I would like to take this opportunity to reaffirm our position on diversity.”

Richard Ellis who filled the seat on the NGLCC board said “I’m thrilled to join the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce and ready to go 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.”

Commenting on McDonald’s involvement in social issues, McDonalds CEO Jim Skinner said “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 … and we do.”

I thought their obligation was to make a good hamburger.


McDonald’s has every right to give as much money as they want to any organization they choose. How a company spends its money is totally between the board members, the CEO and the shareholders. But it’s also my right to choose where I buy my hamburger, fries (super sized) and coke. McDonald’s has decided to take sides on a issue that the Bible clearly defines as an abomination before God. So what side will you choose? McDonald’s side or God’s side? Think about that next time you get a craving for a Big Mac.

  1. Man, I really like their fries, cheeseburgers, shakes. I haven't had a Big Mac in ages. We are called to love the sinners not the sin and this world has many companies which take a neutral stand and/or support unbiblical behavior.

    Are we to boycott hospitals, restaurants, stores because they hire homosexuals and promote diversity? We are to live in this world, but not be a part of it yet may businesses are not Christian based.

  2. No, we shouldn't boycott a business because they hire homosexuals. There's a difference in hiring a sinner and promoting a sin. McDonald's is promoting the sin by donating to an organization that's sole purpose is to promote a group of people based on their sinful lifestyle.

    The AFA website (afa.net) says:

    * This boycott is not about hiring homosexuals.
    * It is not about homosexuals eating at McDonald's.
    * It is not about how homosexual employees are treated.

  3. I've chosen God's side. Their choice in support of such doesn't make their once tasty french fries, or chocolate shake appealing to my stomach. Bye, Ronald.

  4. Yes, we are to hate the sin and not the sinner. However, when we support the sin and those fostering that sin, we are only enabling the sinner. Our Lord loved all sinners…all of us. He was never PC. "Go, and sin no more", not "Hey, do your own thing!" I for one will not parce words to sound benevolent and "Lord like" for the approval of this world. I shall do as He directs me to do; keep loving, keep praying, and ask the Lord to use me as he can, as a tool to save souls, not cheer them on to hell. By the way. Processed fast foods, as MacDonald's serves, is very unhealthy, but hey Jan, eat all you want! (just kidding). God Bless, and show strong love; truth is love ("I am the truth"), and can be used lovingly with wisdom.

  5. I am one of those people who work at a Mcdonalds in TN, and I am appauled at what I am finding out, I can not support a Business that supports the homesexual community. So saying that I need to pray and seek God about my employment choice! Thankyou for this information

  6. man oh man..I'm really going to miss those french fries…

  7. If you saw the movie Supersize Me or even Fast Food Nation you would never eat fast food again.
    The toll this stuff takes on your body is unreal….it should be a crime to sell this stuff.
    Starbucks does the same endorsing. A couple years back they printed "coming out" stories on their cups in the San Fran area. Unreal.

  8. I quite agree that encouraging a sinner sure leads him more on the way to hell.The donation was meant to foster the desire of the gay society,supposing that money was used by the same macdonald to suport the spread of the gospel……..it will do a lot! I dare say it's the same effect it is having spreading the gay gospel,converting many souls.the one big mac you buy contributes more to their cause…..imagine the millions of people that eats Macdonald fast foods.

  9. Here's an idea….

    Don't eat at McDonald's.

    Not because of the recent donation (they have the right to spend THEIR money however they choose. Would you want someone telling you that you can't donate money to what you see as a worthwhile cause?), but rather because of all of the health issues that come with eating their food.

    Have you seen Super-size Me? 25 pounds in 30 days from McDonalds!!!!

    Now, you are healthy!

    just a thought….

  10. Absolutely they have a right to spend their money any way they see fit. I believe I said that in the post. Likewise, so do I and others that are offended by their support of this group.

    Yeah, you're right about the health issue. But hamburgers and french fries are GOOD! I'm 6'3" 188 lbs with low cholesterol so they haven't caught up to me yet!

  11. This is ridiculous. I remember my father boycotting Disney back in the 90s for similar reasons. McDonalds is a worldwide entity. They make billions of dollars, and as such, I believe you would be ridiculing them if they didn't try to improve the world around them in some way. They are simply putting their money towards a cause they believe in, and I support the idea.

    What they are encouraging is tolerance. Not acceptance, not agreement, but tolerance, but I understand why you have difficulty hearing that message. The LGBT community is frequently discriminated against, and it is not so radical of a thought to believe that we should all have the same opportunities for success, despite what race, sex, or orientation we are. The same ideas (tolerance) have helped many people achieve success, even when persecuted by the outside, such as many religion-based businesses. McDonald's is simply saying that we should all be treated equally. I seem to remember that being a part of some important document…

    If you don't want to eat McDonald's, that's fine. Like a PP said, it's really not that healthy anyway. Really not so conducive to treating your body like a temple. McDonald's is a publicly owned company, and is not subject to the Bible. If you did some research, I'm sure you'd find ties to similar groups among many of the fast food chains. Good luck finding a hamburger.

  12. Ok! it's not bad enough that McDonald's can make you fat! Now they support gays! I'm so dissapointed with them but i guess thats what happens in a un-Godly World.
