Francis asks America to welcome the migrant children at its border. The American Family Association has a problem with a rainbow-wrapped Whopper. And some Coloradans worry that a growing Buddhist monastery will bring not tranquility, but traffic and noise.

    Gay Whopper, eh? That’s a pervo mess, but when you don’t know how to cook a hamburger, you gotta try some marketing mess like that. Burger King is obviously getting desperate. VERY desperate.

    Meanwhile, good ole McDonalds is right across the street, and they actually know how to cook that Big Mac. They do those french fries the RIGHT way!!

    So bye-bye, Burger King — your food tastes like Mad Cow Disease, and now you got a bunch of Mad Gay Mess too. Hope you enjoy your BOYCOTT!!

    McDonald’s is just as bad. They ran a pro-homosexual commercial in France.

    Stick with Chik Fil-A and Cracker Barrel if you don’t want to give money to enemies of Christ, brother!

    Anti-gays will only make themselves look more foolish by shrieking they’re gonna “boycott Burger King.” To date, the most noticed anti-gay boycott was against Disney because Disney established a corporate plan for full equality for their LGBT employees. Disney was so flush with cash at the time they bought ABC for cash.

    But the first boycott LGBT Americans organized in the 1970s resulted in Florida Orange Juice firing their anti-gay spokesperson, and several brands came out with California Orange Juice, stating in bold lettering on their packaging that no Florida juice was contained therein.

    ronald, do you want to avoid all companies that support LGBT Americans? That means you can no longer use a computer, since all computer manufacturers as well as all software companies support LGBT Americans.

  • CarrotCakeMan

    Americans will ALL be laughing at the few remaining anti-gays for whining about a fast food wrapper, that’s for sure.

  • CarrotCakeMan

    Please take a moment to tell Burger King how ridiculous you think anti-gays are about the Proud Whopper:

    How about Spangles? Any word on them? Hope they’re staying straight, after all they do make pretty good Double Cheeseburgers!

    Meanwhile, that Burger King better abdicate NOW!!!

  • ronald

    Ive never heard of Spangles but it sounds pretty gay to me. I’d be carefull.

    I post on an old Tandy. Radioshack was named one of the Top 10 Anti-Gay companies by one of my favorite Christian web pages, the Vanguard News Network.

    “The company offers no benefits for domestic partners, and requires no sexual diversity training. RadioShack also does not support any GLBT groups financially.”

    Sounds good to me! And my Tandy does anything I could want a computer to do!

    @ ronald. Um, didn’t Jesus say “Love your enemies”? Or have you conveniently forgotten that commandment?
