Great news! McDonald’s, a supposedly serious global corporation that employs 1.5 million people worldwide, is happy to bow to the whims of right-wing idiots. Back in March, Richard Ellis, McDonald’s vice president for communications took a seat on the board of National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce. (He was already on the board of the AIDS Foundation of Chicago.) Now, the company has forced him to resign from that position—perhaps because of a boycott by the insane “American Family Association.” What’s more, McDonald’s has sent an email to all its franchise owners, clarifying that “It is our policy to not be involved in political and social issues. McDonald’s remains neutral on same sex marriage or any ‘homosexual agenda’ as defined by the American Family Association.” And, according to the AFA, “McDonald’s also said that the company has no plans to renew their membership in NGLCC when it expires in December.” A statement from NGLCC today said the organization “does not lobby on the issue of same-sex marriage. The NGLCC’s number one legislative priority is access to quality and affordable healthcare for our business owning members.” Other board members of NGLCC are executives at IBM and Wells Fargo. Also: Crazy homosexuals.
