I haven’t had much time to post anything substantive lately – i’ve been busy with work, yard, etc., and i’m going on vacation tomorrow so I probably won’t post till I’m back next week.

In the meantime, I thought I’d share something I read today on the Huffington Post. Go there and read the rest if you have time (though I’ve pasted the best part here).

There are billions and billions of reasons to hate McDonald’s. They took the McRib away, for one, and that burns. (Sometimes I almost wish I’d never loved it at all.) There’s at least one good reason to like McDonald’s: They’re being boycotted by the American Family Association.

What did McDonald’s do to cross the AFA, its president, Donald Wildmon, and — by extension — Jesus (R-Nz.)? They donated $20,000 to the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce. McDonald’s’ revenue runs about five billion dollars a quarter, so you can see their profound commitment to destroying the family through sodomy.

The AFA says that by donating one thousandth of one percent of its 2007 earnings, “McDonald’s has chosen not to remain neutral but to give the full weight of their corporation to promoting the homosexual agenda.”

Which seems like a kind of shrill definition of “full weight,” but maybe it’s like the Quarter Pounder®, and it’s the weight before cooking that counts.

It feels a little like the American Family Association was looking for someone to boycott and it was just McDonald’s’ turn. They’ve already boycotted Sears, Kohl’s, Kmart, Target, Old Navy and IKEA. As a result, they’re naked and don’t have anywhere to sit. The McDonald’s boycott follows boycotts of Burger King, Carl’s Jr., 7-11, Proctor & Gamble and Kraft, which means Donald Wildmon hasn’t eaten anything for sale in America since the late ’70s. You’d think he’d be dead, but no.

(He’s a good guy. I’ll bet he loads up on locusts, beetles and grasshoppers, like it says in Leviticus. The same book that — there’s no getting around it — says homosexuality is an abomination, absolutely as heinous in G*d’s eyes as strong drink.)

Does the AFA hate homosexuals? Absolutely not! It says so, right on their website, under the heading and sub-head: “Does AFA Hate Homosexuals? Absolutely Not!”

Should McDonald’s take the boycott seriously? The customer is always right, I guess. (I think that’s from Deuteronomy.)
