Hatin' It! Or… Your Kind of Place?

The AFA is boycotting McDonalds? Throw some cheese on those bitches.

McPRIDE!
McPRIDE!

Did somebody say, "wack-a-doos?" The American Family Association is at it again. The Bible-beating blowhards are getting their special sauce in a wad over McDonalds "allowing" one of their hi-viz white collar types to be a board member in the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC). The AFA are (surprise!) calling for a boycott. What? Aren't gay people entitled to clogged arteries, too?

Last we checked, employers have no business in whatever business their employees do after hours (unless of course it is to compete with them…).

The last time the AFA held a big ass boycott, the general public held a big ass eye roll, so the big Bible babies called it off after nine years of no success.

Like Mickey Mouse, Mickey D's should hold tough. Tell Ronald to throw some cheese on those bitches.
