Yes that mcdonald is inclusive and not a alt-right fascist like you.

Here is the real article, not the sensationalized Josh Feuerstein version.

McDonald's to debut rainbow-decorated fry boxes along DC's Capital Pride parade route | Fox News

It's only three McDonald's locations in Washington DC along the gay pride parade route.

Conservative media doesn't tell you that because they want maximum outrage.

Well, I think that is where it's going. There will be some vocal ones but as far as I can tell going to my evangelical church, the notion is that Christians will be like Jews in Babylon. Many have accepted it and while they'll vote for conservative politicians brave enough to speak out, they'll keep quiet.

....on the internet it might be a different story, lol.

This X 1,000

"What I do in my own bedroom is none of your business"

"by the way........I'm GAAAAAAAAAAAY"

I used to work and live around tons of Gay people in Seattle. Being that I'm not religious, I never had any reason to hate on them for any other reason than the fact that most of them are SUPER annoying because the NEVER shut up about their sexuality. Granted, lesbians aren't that bad to work with other than the swinging balls overcompensation thing, but working with most gay men is worse than working with even the most lybtarded Seattle hipster chick. I don't miss that ****.

Why can't the gay community take the same cue? Instead, they want to punish businesses and people who don't support their immoral lifestyle.

Fast Food Restaurant X could put a swastika, crucifix, ankh, AR-15, "COEXIST," GOP elephant, Democrat donkey, hammer-and-sickle, US flag, cannabis leaf, or whatever on their fry box and the correct answer would likely still be the same, for anyone -- just don't buy it and/or don't go if you don't like it.

Doncha think?

If they put R-rated material on it, like a depiction of anal sex or mutilated corpses, it would be a little more interesting question.

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.

so I suppose up until now you thought Ronald McDonald was a hetero?


enjoy your one "man" boycott, I'm sure the investors will be quivering in their boots

So basically, go back in the closet so Baptist snowflakes aren't offended by their existence.

There we go folks. OP thinks homosexuality is immoral. Your not fooling anybody. Mcdonalds has a right to do whatever they want . If you don't like it eat someplace else. Not rocket science.
