In little ol’ family-oriented, conservative Rockwall you may not have heard that McDonalds is now a major supporter of the homosexual agenda, after donating $20,000 to become an official “organizational ally and corporate partner” of the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce and secure a seat on the group’s board of directors.
NGLCC describes itself as promoting the LGBT community first and always, including same sex marriage, and lobbies against laws protecting marriage as between a man and a woman.
In return, the NGLCC placed Richard Ellis, vice president of communications of McDonald’s USA, on the NGLCC Board of Directors.
In a telephone call from McDonald’s Vice-President Jack Daly, on May 2, he confirmed to the American Family Association that it gave $20,000 to the NGLCC.
In addition, Daly told AFA that Richard Ellis, vice president of communications for McDonald’s, is a “gay man” and personally approved the donation to the NGLCC.
“McDonald’s is indeed a Corporate Partner and Organizational Ally of NGLCC. Our vice president of U.S. communications, Richard Ellis, was recently elected to its board of directors,” said Heidi M. Barker, senior director of media relations for McDonald’s.
NGLCC gives credit to sponsors such as McDonald’s for its financial and other support that helps in its work.
“Through the commitment of our corporate partners, the NGLCC has been able to advance the ideas and causes of the LGBT business community,” the Chamber said.
In addition, McDonalds signed on as a major sponsor of the 2007 San Francisco Gay Pride parade with a TV commercial in which McDonalds states that it is “a company that actively demonstrates its commitment to the gay and lesbian community.”
