Yeah.

They're like the polar opposites, McD's and In-in-Out. McD's just comes across as desperately trying to be popular with these trendy PR campaigns and slogans and ineffectively targeting younger generation. In-n-Out just doesn't really give a hoot. It's got this tiny menu with nothing on it that's staler than axe body spray. The food also isn't disgusting so despite basically doing no advertising and having a diminutive menu that never changes the main deterrent In-in-Out faces is the lines of customers are too damn long.

I think there's probably quite a bit of truth to that. I see the same thing in other areas too, when people have to broadcast and advertise various aspects of their being, lifestyle, beliefs, or personality.

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.
Agreed. If I go to a fast food joint it's to get food...not be preached to. I have other options and will not support one that wants to preach to me that way.

Yeah, I don't know why anyone would want to stick a butthole. They may as well go to the pound and get a dog, it's got the same hole on it. Plus it can never say "no" or "not tonight" because it's got a headache. Plus they claim dogs have less germs then humans do, so there you go.

Really think about it. Humans are the only living animals on this planet that use sex for recreational purposes other than having offspring. I always hear about people trying to get animals to be gay. I remember the women at a zoo a number of years back who was trying to get sexual with a female ape. They fired one of the chicks who wouldn't show the ape her breasts.

Yes. And coming from my friend who was very intelligent and wise with quite a career, and gay. I totally agree with what he said. He wasn't just some guy making stuff up, it was truly how he felt about it.

Second of all, straights don't need a flag symbolizing their sexual preferences because........ they are perfectly comfortable with their preference without having to get "approval/support" from everyone else. FACT!
Actually not so fact. That's why you've got all these closet boy molesters preaching family values getting caught diddling with little Johnny. Not only do many of them need a bumper sticker, they occasionally hide behind the family values bumper sticker they don't even believe in. Of course not all straight people need to hide behind the family values bumper sticker and certainly some of those that do need to hide behind it are not closet Johnny diddlers.

Proving that as long as you are accepting of everyone else, they'll be accepting of you, too.

Them making good food doesn't hurt, either (although, it's still fast food, and I don't eat it ever unless I'm on the road somewhere)
