Now with 100% more homophobia and bigoted "Christian" management. Apparently it's okay for gays to come to McDonalds in Europe - but not in the United States.

From Joe.My.God.:

A gay-positive McDonald's ad running in France has made international news and brought the company condemnation from American evangelists. But the Christianists needn't worry, McDonald's Chief Operating Officer Donald Thompson says that commercial will never run in the United States.


McDonalds Chief Operation Officer Donald Thompson

"I've never shied away from the fact that I'm a Christian. I have my own personal beliefs and I don't impose those on anybody else. I've been in countries where the majority of the people in the country don't believe in a deity or they may be atheist. Or the majority of the country is Muslim. Or it may be the majority is much younger skewed. So when you look at all these differences, it's not that I'm to be the judge or the jury relative to right or wrong. Having said that, at McDonald's, there are core values we stand for and the world is getting much closer. So we have a lot of conversations. We're going to make some mistakes at times. (We talk) about things that may have an implication in one part of the world and may be the cultural norm in another part of the world. And those are things that, yes, we're going to learn from. But, you're right, that commercial won't show in the United States."


Well Mr. Thompson - good luck with that. Your salty, fatty, obesity causing products aside - this is just pisses me the fuck off.... I will never eat McDonalds again.


UPDATE:

by my own admission here? yeah.... with this post I'm probably being a hysterical foaming at the mouth fag without thinking about it.

I don't eat at McDonalds anyways....

but seeing someone do that "I've never made it a secret that I'm a Christian" pandering?
