And I guess we should also be getting rid of Memorial day and Veterans day since those are also special days in celebration of certain people.

Columbus Day, MLK day, Presidents Day, Valentines Day, St Patrick's day, Labor Day, Flag Day, NYE, birthdays, anniversaries, and all those other days of celebrations should also be gone.
Overreact much? I wasn't talking about holidays, genius. Try reading up on Valentines Day and what really happened.
You know Jesus wasn't born on December 25th.

Everyday we should be celebrating our mothers, fathers, veterans, MLK, our country etc. Some of other special days have been set aside so the greeting card companies can sell more cards.

If you don't like it, don't buy the fries. It's that simple.

I don't know why some people get this riled up over stuff like this.

Why do these companies feel the need to have a position on social issues? You make fast food. No one wants to go to Mcdonalds to hear or see a message about gay pride. They just want the food that they are used to. Such a move serves no benefit business wise as people like Christians may choose to no longer do business there. It just shows there is a liberal agenda at play here even at the cost of making money.

I don't want to go to Mcdonalds and see some barrier that says, "check out our gay fries in fun rainbow colors because being gay is fun and cool!" Of course, they will say they are only showing support for the gay community, but I see it as marking a specific message especially to kids.

Most Christians including myself don't care how someone wants to live their life as long as they are not causing harm to others. But these marketing ploy is just another growing instance of the LGBT community forcing a pro-gay message onto the public. Just give me fries.
Thank you. I'm with you and hearing that is the final nail in the coffin for McDonald's, as far as I and millions of their former customers are concerned.

I wish I had been surprised to see a lot of resonance with your OP in the first couple of pages. I wasn't, of course. The familiar parade of youthful "progressives" that were born in an upside down world and that is all they have ever known.

But be assured there are lots of us who get it. And since McDonald's hasn't even been close to competitive for many years, they may have just shot themselves fatally in the foot by turning away a a large portion of their traditional customers who have hung with them for decades.

A french fry box is really worth 4 paragraphs of hysteria?

But you've got a definite minority that does politicize them which is why you had the chick-fil-a protests and then the conservative response that ended up increasing sales as the other side flocked there. Both groups are nuts.
To Chick-fil-a it's not a big financial deal. I just happen to be disgusted by fascist tactics of forcing your will on other people.

Boycotts, public protest...no problem. Actively forcing businesses out.....problem.

Imagine a devout muslim with a middle eastern grocery in town having his business license pulled and run out of business because he organized a campaign against same sex marriage?

I just cannot support that level of oppression over differing views.

They should be the first ones protesting this new "gay themed" fries.
There is nothing "normal" about using a bathroom stall or shrub as a bedroom. As Morton Downey Jr. once said "The anus is an exit not an entrance".

I was thinking the fries were going to be like dog "people cracker" treats, or animal crackers (shaped like animals, or... people like the mailman), you'd have 2 same sex people doing sexual things...or a box of phallic shaped fries...and I was thinking "oh hell no!" (Or at least not for kids or my 80 yr old mother!) Although phallic shaped fries would be perfect for a bridal shower...
Rainbow boxes??? Who cares.

If they are gay fries they must be abnormal.
