An evangelical advocacy organization thinks Christians and others with traditional values are right to react to the latest news on Burger King by taking their business elsewhere.

Johnson

Bill Johnson of the American Decency Association (ADA) has previously noted the link between Burger King and the homosexual community, and now he reports that the fast-food chain has taken that relationship to another level with "the establishment of what they now call a gay pride burger, and they're calling it the Proud Whopper. It comes wrapped in a rainbow colored wrapper with this inscription: 'We're all the same inside.'"

Johnson points out that Burger King, which participates in homosexual pride parades and offers a scholarship for LGBTQ students, was once headed by Christians who kept the corporation in line for a short season. But now the company is taking a different stand in the culture wars.

"When we hear of a corporation that is just making decisions such as this, this is clearly a time for people to use whatever means they can to express that concern at their local Burger King," ADA spokesman suggests.

While one way to do that is for conservatives to take their business elsewhere, Johnson also encourages people to drop by Burger King stores and let management know exactly why they are doing so.
