McDonald's restaurants on both coasts are serving up the restaurant chain's famous french fries sporting a rainbow-themed box in celebration of homosexual “pride” events.
The “gay” themed fries are being served between June 9 and 11 at three specific Washington, D.C., area McDonald's restaurants located along the route of the June 10 Capital Pride Alliance homosexual parade. Washington, D.C., McDonald's franchises have proudly announced their sponsorship of the weekend spectacle.
“The rainbow fry boxes are a fun way to show our support of the LGBTQ community using one of McDonald's most iconic and recognizable items,” said Cathy Martin, a spokesperson for the fast-food giant. “However, these fry boxes are 'small potatoes' in the grand scheme of our commitment to this community.”
Martin added that McDonald's is “proud to honor and celebrate the LGBTQ community, including our employees, customers, and beyond, each and every day.”
Christiannews.net reported that the D.C.-area McDonald’s restaurants were expected to enter a float in the June 10 “gay pride” parade as well, using the slogan “Lovin’ is Lovin’.”
Meanwhile, McDonald's restaurants around San Francisco are also offering “gay” fries throughout the month of June — a month apparently dedicated among homosexuals nationwide to celebrate their dysfunctional lifestyle.
Kim Knapp, a spokesperson for McDonald's restaurants in the Bay area, confirmed the chain's LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer) posture. “McDonald's has always been a company that has supported diversity and inclusion of its employees and extended McDonald's family,” Knapp voiced in a statement. Addressing McDonald's decision to offer its customers “gay” fries, Knapp explained that “as an official sponsor of this year's Pride festivities, we looked for a unique way to bring that celebration into our restaurants throughout the Greater Bay Area.”
In one form or another McDonald’s has been helping to promote and solidify homosexuality in society for some time. In 1999 the restaurant chain added “sexual orientation” to its nondiscrimination policy, and in 2004 it made domestic partners of homosexual employees eligible for benefits.
However, McDonald's is by no means the only company to offer a wink and nod to the homosexual lifestyle. According to ChristianNews.net., other sponsors that have leant their endorsements to “gay pride” celebrations include Marriott International, Capital One, UPS, Geico, Red Bull, AT&T, Wells Fargo, State Farm, Starbucks, IKEA, Coldwell Banker, Coca-Cola, American Airlines, GAP, Heineken, Kaiser Permanente, and Citibank.
In May the American Family Association reported on another corporate giant that has gone all in to help normalize homosexuality in American culture, and to show its support to LGTBQ campaigns. For the past two years, Target stores have entire sections dedicated to products normalizing homosexuality,” the AFA pointed out. “In many instances, profits from the sale of the products are donated to gay advocacy groups for the promotion of the lifestyle to children in public schools.”
The Christian pro-family group noted that Target “has a history of distaste for traditional family values. For example, Target has abolished 'boys' and 'girls' signs from its toys and bedding departments in an effort to remove references to gender.”
Additionally, recounted the AFA, “on multiple occasions, Target has supported state and national legislative efforts that would force Christian business owners to violate their religious convictions.”
