AFA posts annual ‘Naughty or Nice List’ of retailers and how they choose to treat Christmas

AFA reviewed up to four areas to determine if a company was “Christmas-friendly” in their advertising: print media (newspaper inserts), broadcast media (radio/television), website and/or personal visits to the store. If a company’s ad has references to items associated with Christmas (trees, wreaths, lights, etc.), it was considered as an attempt to reach “Christmas” shoppers.

If a company has items associated with Christmas, but did not use the word “Christmas,” then the company is considered as censoring “Christmas.”

Associated Press: No doubt about it. ObamaCare does pay for abortion

AFAlogo

As even the Associated Press admits, the government takeover of health care will,despite what the president has told you, involve the use of taxpayer funds to pay for abortions.

The AP says flatly, “The proposed legislation would permit government-sponsored health plans, open to non-Medicaid patients, to cover abortions.”

So when the president or members of Congress say abortions aren’t covered in health care reform, they aren’t telling you the truth. And when the president’s spokesman says that federal law would prevent taxpayer funding of abortions in the health care plan, he’s not telling you the truth either.

The Hyde Amendment prevents Medicaid funds – and Medicaid funds only – from being used for abortions, but that restriction wouldn’t apply to the government takeover of health care.

In fact, under the Capps Amendment in the House bill, the public option would be required to offer abortion services, and every American would have to have access to at least one health care plan that included abortion.

Take Action

The full Senate will soon be debating its huge health care bill. Contact both of your senators today and tell them firmly but politely that they can’t “Hyde” any longer, that abortion is not health care, and that they must remove abortion from any health care reform bill they consider.

AFA ends boycott: McDonald’s agrees to changes

 

AFA ends boycott: McDonald’s agrees to changes                October 9, 2008

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 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.”

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.

 

 
 
Thank you for caring enough to get involved. If you feel our efforts are worthy of support, would you consider making a small tax-deductible contribution to help us continue?
 
Sincerely,DonDonald E. Wildmon,
Founder and Chairman

Boycott McDonald’s – Say NO to Corporate Support for Gay Agenda

Boycott McDonald’s – Say NO to Corporate Support for Gay Agenda

by Joseph Farah

That’s my personal stand on this boycott called for by the American Family Association. I believe it is the right thing to do. And I am personally asking you to join me and the AFA and millions of other Americans who believe as we do to drop McDonald’s from our consideration of fast-food outlets for as long as this boycott lasts.

My guess is it will last a very long time – years. That assessment is based on the intractability of the statements offered up by McDonald’s corporate leadership. These guys are going to need to feel real pain to change their way of thinking. They believe they are doing good by promoting the radical homosexual agenda and same-sex marriage. And they likely believe they are catering to a prosperous and growing market of homosexuals in the process.

All the current corporate executives and board members may need to be forced out of power by angry shareholders before McDonald’s changes its tune.

But how much of a sacrifice is it for me to ask you to avoid McDonald’s until further notice?

Is it really much to ask?

Is McDonald’s that irresistible?

Is the food that good?

Are there not enough fast-food choices where you live?

Do you really need fast food at all?

I know boycotts alone won’t solve all the problems we have in America with a decaying culture and declining moral standards. But I believe occasionally boycotts are the only responsible thing to do in the face of arrogant corporate insults to our intelligence and our most sacred beliefs.

That’s where we are with McDonald’s today.

McDonald’s rakes in billions of dollars selling food that is of questionable nutritional value. Now it is determined to take its profits into the active support of a radical social cause supported by no more than a tiny minority of political extremists. Not to put too fine a point on it, but neither Barack Obama nor Hillary Clinton supported same-sex marriage in their campaigns for the presidency. That puts McDonald’s to the fringe left of the two front-running candidates for the Democratic Party presidential nomination.

Is that the political movement you want to support with your hamburger money?

I don’t.

So I urge you to join the boycott.

Avoid McDonald’s like the plague. Don’t go back until there is unconditional surrender by the McDonald’s corporation. Demand total capitulation. McDonald’s needs to stop funding abomination and start funding family values before I consider taking another bite of a Big Mac.
