Reverend - not priest. Catholic priest - probably not.

Although back in the day when I was attending mass, our parish used to do a lot of volunteer work with gays who had been diagnosed with AIDS and were in hospice - championed by one of the priest's in the parish.

Compassion doesn't have a religion, a color, an age, a gender, or a sexual preference. Even some priests, and dare I say our Holy Father, have figured this out.

You are really on top of this stuff, aren't you?

Are the three McDonald's in Washington DC going to be having leather clad dudes handing these out to kiddies?

Are you going to travel here to D.C. just so you can fuss at them?

Based on my experience, the heterosexuals are the deviant ones, not the gays & lesbians.
Your kidding right? Even the B2B has plenty of nudity.

But like I said, not gay so do as you wish.
I agree. I'm gay and could care less if McDonalds has these "Gay fries" or not. I don't attend gay pride events, or even go to gay clubs, and I'm still reasonably young. Also, if people wanted straight pride festivals/parades, it wouldn't bother me at all... go for it!!

How offensive! Just think of the children!

Honestly, kids would only know that this has anything to do with gay pride if adults made an issue of it.

And how does this tie in with what I asked about being a gay Christian?
I never once said anything about illegal aliens. I was commenting more on those who like to tell people to "go back to Africa" or "We only speak Englsih in America."

And it ties in with your gay Christian comment because if you expect gay Christians to follow every verse of the Bible, then you should expect all Christians to follow every verse. You cant just cherry pick.

Private company they can do whatever they wish. We don't eat at McDonalds anyway, it's on the low end of the junk food totem pole.

First of all, if I was an investor in McDonalds, I would be pissed. Mcdonalds could be looking at some boycotts over their rainbow fries. 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.
They probably get more business by being inclusive than listening to the protests of small minded people. Economically, I am sure they have done the math and believe the boycotts not only will not hurt them, buy may also give them some free advertising.

I don't think you can speak for everyone.

The liberal agenda is likely to include as many people as possible. Whereas your agenda is to exclude as many as possible if they don't go along with your beliefs.

You don't have to.

Some people see "pink elephant's on parade - doesn't mean they are there.

BS. You care very much that people don't do things you don't like. This thread is just one example in proof.
