AFA (American Family Association) Ends Boycott:
McDonald's Agrees To Changes
(Oct. 9, 2008)

I just got this newsletter and am thrilled to hear this bit of news! Please read!

Dear Melissa,

Great news! Because of AFA supporters like you, McDonald's has told AFA they will remain neutral in the culture war regarding homosexual marriage. AFA is ending the boycott of McDonald's. As you know, AFA called for the boycott in May after McDonald's joined the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC).

McDonald's said McDonald's Vice President Richard Ellis has resigned his position on the board of NGLCC and that his seat on the board will not be replaced. McDonald's also said that the company has no plans to renew their membership in NGLCC when it expires in December.

In an e-mail to McDonald's franchised owners the company said, "It's our policy to not be involved in political and social issues. McDonald's remains neutral on the same-sex marriage or any 'homosexual agenda' as defined by the American Family Association."

We appreciate the decision by McDonald's to no longer support political activity by homosexual activist organizations. You might want to thank your local McDonald's manager.

Yea! We can make a difference!! Kudos to those of you involved in the boycott and/or who took the time to write to/call McDonald's to express your disapproval of their support of/involvement in the NGLCC.
