You can catch the gay by eating a Whopper?

This is America.
No one is forcing anyone to eat a burger anywhere.
Don't like it -
don't eat it, don't buy it - that simple.
Like it?, then buy it and eat it
Don't like the message, don't go there, don't do business with them, simple, easy-peasy
Like the message, eat there, do business there
Don't you wish everyone felt this way and left bakeries and florists alone too with this philosophy?
This is what it is to be American, don't like the philosophy of a business, don't do business there, simple, go elsewhere.
Like the philosophy of a business and want to see it thrive, do business there, simple.
The right shouldn't tell any business owner how to express their moral philosophy
The left shouldn't try and force any business owner not to express their moral philosophy
Plain, simple, and American as apple pie

I won't purchase a 'gay Whopper' simply because I don't want to give my implied support to their special interest group. That is my right as an American. However, ALL Americans, gay or straight, should have equal rights. My enemy is the overbearing US Government not the LGBT community.

Homosexual Hamburgers: When the World Goes Mad
(read the whole article.. this is all about morality in America and the decline of Western civilization)
What say you ATS?
I don't see anything about the decline of western ciovilization or the morality thereof in this particualr situation, not that it isn't or hsan't taken place elsewhere though, but, seriously.... a corporation decides to wrap their burgers in rainbow paper to show support for a percentage of their customer/user base and yet we have folks decrying their Choice to aggrandize an agenda..... and it'snot the corporation's.
i think their whoppers suck, so it doesn't impact nor effect me on iota.... either way..... it's their choice to do so..... and anyone ele's choice to buy their product or not.
other than that.
wth's the big deal????

So...Burger King always used to sell burgers for everyone equally. Now...they are selling a special burger implying that gay is special, non-equal or worse yet...different. Definitely not equality. Actually...the opposite.
