On a blog posting on 5/18, I informed you about McDonald’s proactive stance on promoting homosexuality. They have now also refused a request to remain neutral in the culture war, choosing to continue support of the homosexual agenda. McDonald’s recently was asked in writing to do the following two things:
1) Remove McDonald’s name and logo from the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) Web site listing McDonald’s as a “Corporate Partner and Organization Ally” of NGLCC.
2) Remove the endorsement of NGLCC by Richard Ellis, Vice President of Communications for McDonald’s USA, from the NGLCC Web site.
The response? McDonald’s refused both requests. They commented that they will continue to promote diversity. McDonald’s donated $20,000 to NGLCC in exchange for membership in the NGLCC and a seat on the group’s board of directors. The NGLCC lobbies Congress on a wide range of issues including the promotion of homosexual marriage aka “counterfeit marriage”.
What should you do? If this enrages you like it should, boycott their company stock and don’t eat their food. This issue is not about hiring homosexuals, or homosexuals eating at McDonald’s, or how homosexual employees are treated. It is about the corporate proactive stance McDonald’s is taking by putting their full weight behind promoting homosexuality.
If you are unsure if you own McDonald’s stock in your portfolio, email me and I can do an analysis for you. You may not only own McDonald’s but other companies whose values contradict your own. Take the time to discover where you’re investing and integrate your faith into your financial plan.
