Ronald Responds

I got this, surely canned (or maybe wrapped is more appropriate), response from Mc Donald's corporate office. Skirts the issue doesn't it. Remember, the company sent this email as printed in the American Family Association website:

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."

Somebody ain't being truthful.....

Hello Donald:

Thank you for contacting McDonald's. We appreciate this opportunity to share some information with you.

As we've said all along, McDonald's stands by and supports our people. Diversity and inclusion are integral components of our brand and our heritage.

We continue to have strong employee networks throughout our company and will continue to align our brand with individuals and organizations that share our belief in supporting our people and the communities we serve.

Regarding Richard Ellis, he made a personal decision to step down from the Board of the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce after he accepted a new position earlier this year with McDonald's Restaurants of Canada, Limited.

At McDonald's, we continue to value and respect everyone.

Thank you for sharing your personal point of view on this topic with us.
