Talk about wishful thinking. After Autumn’s post on the flop news conference held by Matt and The Peter, it appears the folks at WorldNetDaily decided to write a fantasy headline: “Boycott over McDonald’s ‘gay’ promotions grows: Ronald ‘needs to end corporate subsidies for homosexual and transsexual behavior’ “

Your dollars for Happy Meals and Big Macs could end up paying for sex-change operations of McDonald’s employees if the home of the Golden Arches continues its promotion of homosexuality, according to a pro-family group that has joined an expanding boycott of the fast-food restaurants and its Ronald McDonald’s mascot.

“If McDonald’s restaurants and franchises … follow the small business advice of the company’s new homosexual partner – the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC), which received a $20,000 grant from McDonald’s – there would be chaos,” said Peter LaBarbera, chief of Americans for Truth.

…”It’s a shame that McDonald’s would tarnish their family-friendly image,” said AFA Chairman Don Wildmon. “But the company has ramped up its support of the gay agenda and it leaves us no option but to call for a boycott.”

Wildmon wrote the company with a plea for McDonald’s to remain neutral in the culture war by removing McDonald’s name and logo from the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) Web site (where McDonald’s is cited as a partner and ally) and withdraw McDonald’s VP of Communications Richard Ellis’ endorsement from the website. McDonald’s ignored both requests.

“To put it politely, the company thumbed its nose at the Christian community,” Wildmon said.
