McDonald's touts LGBT 'rainbow fries'

fast food eating out McDonaldsFrom Friday through Sunday, McDonald’s restaurants in Washington, D.C, situated along the “Capital Pride” parade route are offering customers limited-edition “rainbow fry” boxes to celebrate the LGBTQ community and remind Americans that the Golden Arches is a major player and sponsor in promoting homosexual behavior across the nation.

McDonald’s Family Restaurants of Greater Washington, D.C., is touting the 2017 Capital Pride parade theme, “Lovin’ Is Lovin,’” – an apparent offshoot of its popular “I’m Lovin’ It” tagline – as a way to publicize its longtime support and unwavering commitment to promote LGBTQ rights that run in opposition to its pro-family and conservative Christian clientele.

Pro-LGBT through and through

McDonald’s PRIDE Network Co-Chair Cathy Martin boasts about America’s largest fast food chain’s devotion to push the homosexual agenda with its billions of dollars in profits.

“The rainbow fry boxes are a fun way to show our support of the LGBTQ community, using one of McDonald’s most iconic and recognizable items,” the pro-LGBT activist expressed in a McDonald's press release last week announcing the controversial fries. “However, these fry boxes are ‘small potatoes’ in the grand scheme of our commitment to this community.”

Martin, who also serves as vice president and general manager of McDonald’s Baltimore-Washington Region, says that the burger chain not only promotes the homosexual lifestyle to its patrons, but to its workers and the general public, as well.

“We are proud to honor and celebrate the LGBTQ community, including our employees, customers and beyond – each and every day,” she continued.

Beyond its restaurant doors and advertising campaigns, McDonalds touts itself as an “industry and corporate leader with its Diversity & Inclusion policies” that have been geared to “support and protect the LGBTQ community” for 18 years, including:

  • Expansion of its non-discrimination policy to include sexual orientation (1999)
  • Enabling domestic partners to be eligible for its benefits package (2004)
  • Establishing the McDonald’s PRIDE Network employee network (2005)
  • Updating its non-discrimination policy to include “Gender Identity and Expression” (2013)

And McDonald’s boasting over its anti-family agenda – despite the fact that it caters its menu to the family crowd – does not stop there.

“McDonald’s also has a rating of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index – the national benchmarking tool on corporate practices related to LGBTQ employees,” the press release announced before inviting the LGBT crowd to join its inaugural “gay” fest in the nation’s capital. “McDonald’s of Greater Washington, D.C. will also sponsor the first-ever Capital Pride Block Party on June 10 and have a float in the Capital Pride Parade.”

Repulsive fries …

Not impressed with McDonald’s investment in the LGBT community, evangelist Joshua Feuerstein has had enough of its pushing the homosexual agenda and called Americans last week to fight back.

"DISGUSTING! McDonald's released their RAINBOW FRIES today in honor of GAY PRIDE!" Feuerstein posted on his Facebook page to his more than 2 million followers, who were given a sneak-peak of the new packaging for large McDonald’s fries in the District of Columbia.

Besides his distaste for McDonald’s campaign that promotes the LGBT lifestyle, the ex-pastor condemned the burger franchise’s menu offerings and exhorted fast food fanatics to find another chain for their on-the-go cravings.

"I'm tired of corporations trying to influence our families like this – SHARE THIS and let people know to STOP EATING at McDonalds!” Feuerstein exclaimed. “Plus, their food is [horrible]. Really."

Embracing homosexuals, rejecting families

Macy’s also gave a shout out for America’s “gay pride month.”

“[Macy’s wants to] show love, embrace difference, and make the world a brighter place,” Macy's stated on its website to cater to the LGBT community.

Feuerstein condemned the popular clothing retailer for supporting the homosexual agenda, as well.

“Well ... Macy's decided to push the gay agenda!” he shared on Facebook. “Looks like they lost my business too! It's time to boycott businesses that push the homosexual agenda. Let others know ... let them feel it in their pocketbook!" 

Another American-based retailer, Target, is also invested heavily in the homosexual agenda, CBN News reported.

In order to stem its anti-family influence American Family Association has put the pressure on Target through a nationwide boycott campaign against the Minnesota-based corporation because of its transgender restroom and dressing room policy –  along with its pro-LGBT clothing line. It launched a successful petition nationwide that has reportedly cost the retail giant millions in lost sales.

"For the past two years, Target stores have entire sections dedicated to products normalizing homosexuality,” AFA announced last month. “In many instances, profits from the sale of the products are donated to gay advocacy groups for the promotion of the lifestyle to children in public schools."

Coffee, no one?

LGBT Pride month, which is celebrated public schools and numerous businesses every June, is not the only time of the year that businesses beef-up their anti-family and anti-Christian agendas. Every Christmas, Starbucks makes it a point to omit Christmas from its promotional “holiday” coffee cups.

The vocal pastor who is dead-set against McDonald’s and Macys also had something to say about the coffee giant’s secular twist on Christmas.

"Starbucks removed Christmas from their cups because they hate Jesus,” Feuerstein asserted about the Seattle-based coffee company, according to The Christian Post (CP).

The contrast between former President Barack Obama and President Donald Trump with regards to support of the LGBT community was also mentioned.

‘[W]hile former President Barack Obama made official proclamations every year [during June for ‘Gay Pride Month’] in support of the LGBT community, President Donald Trump has not made a such a proclamation this year.

Trump showed his distaste for Starbucks’ anti-Christian packaging while on the campaign trail last year.

"If I become president, we're all going to be saying 'Merry Christmas' again,” Trump proclaimed last year to his supporters, according to CP. “That I can tell you … That I can tell you! Unbelievable,"
