AFA Calls for
McDonald’s Boycott

The American Family Association has called for a boycott of McDonald's due to the fast-food chain's affiliation with the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, TheWashington Post reported last week. Tim Wildmon, president of the faith-based organization, told the Post, "We're saying that there are people who support AFA who don't appreciate their dollars from the hamburgers they bought being put into an organization that's going to fight against the values they believe in."

The American Family Association has called for a boycott of McDonald's due to the fast-food chain's affiliation with the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce.

Tim Wildmon, president of the faith-based organization, told TheWashington Post, "We're saying that there are people who support AFA who don't appreciate their dollars from the hamburgers they bought being put into an organization that's going to fight against the values they believe in."

McDonald's is newest on the list of businesses and corporations targeted by the AFA. According to the Post, the organization boycotted the Walt Disney Company for its "embrace of the homosexual lifestyle" and Target department stores for using the word "holiday" instead of "Christmas" in its advertising.

"Hatred has no place in our culture," McDonald's USA spokesman Bill Whitman told the Post. "That includes McDonald's, and we stand by and support our people to live and work in a society free of discrimination and harassment." (The Advocate)
