Quote# 47109

"I agree with your doctrinal statements. I wanted to comment on whether you’ve taken a look into why Wendy’s has had this campaign showing men with the “Wendy’s wig” on. It seems to all be a part of the enemy’s agenda to desensitize people to the whole cross-gender, trans-gender/homosexual thing. Expecially the one commercial where it’s in Black & White and there’s a huge crowd of women with men faces superimposed and they’re cheering for the man wearing a Wendy girl wig. Why can’t they show women in their commercials who crave their burgers and wear the same red wig? Have you posted anything about that? My family and friends have since stopped going there."

Thank you Valerie.

I dont eat at Wendy’ cause he food is always cold despite what their lying commericials say.

You brought up a good point. I looked around and didnt find anything directly tying Wendy’s to the gay movement other than in 2005, the gay group HRC pressured them to change their “discrimination policy” to include homosexuals and transgenders, which they did.

The commercials really do look like Wendy’s is showing that it wants their business by appealing to the gender switching crowd.

Because it isnt a doctrinal issue, you probably wont see it addressed here.

But I think youre right to boycott them.

Kid, boycotting against a big company is like trying to stop a wildfire with a glass of water.

Um, those commercials aren't even *on* anymore. And the men weren't in full drag, only in those wigs, similar to the little red cowboy hats in the "I'm thinking Arby's" ads. The hamburgers themselves *are* specifically meant to appeal to young men, and the visual of these former frat boy-types in red braids was supposed to make them laugh.

More here, no mention of a desire to appeal primarily to transvestites:

Lying for Jeebus.

I have NEVER gotten ANYthing at Wendy's that was cold, except the Frosties.


As to the rest of the diatribe... "blah, blah, homophobic drivel, blah, blah, blah."

Good for you! I don't eat fast food at all - for health reasons and it's hard to get any vegetarian meals at any fast food place.
Anyway, now boycot all other fast food/ chain restaurants and your health will improve! Not because god loves you more, but because you eat better!

If fundies have stopped eating at McDonald's and Wendy's, why are so many of them still so fat?

Commercials often show something off the wall - it's a way to get people to remember them. It worked on Valerie, didn't it?

The fundies are boycotting McDonalds and now Wendys. Let's get to work on Burger King.

Gay Christian Movement Watch.

Surely you've got the name of this organisation all wrong, the wording of it suggestes that you are all homosexuals keeping a watchful eye on the Christian movement!.

If this is the case then we support you, the Christians definitely need a watch keeping on their movements.

Do some research, you fucking morons! You think putting on a wig automatically makes someone transgendered? You don't know jack shit about sexuality or gender, clearly.

The Baconator, Satan's delicious invitation to homosexuality and evil.

I don't eat at Wendy's (or any other fast food place for that matter) not because they support "teh gheys" but because the food sucks and it's unhealthy to the n-th degree.

But I guess if your goal is to look like a fat American then Wendy's is just as good as any other fast food joint.

Just a little reminder for everyone:

Well when she spends half an hour preaching to the heathen cashier about the ungodly piercings, and how she should be at home waiting for her husband, of course it'll get cold.

I saw this on another message board, and my comment got deleted.

If she has her pants down, and her underwear is sticking out like that, I don't care how big or small her ass is. Both are equally rude.

If I opened up a fast food chain, and put it in writing on our logo "we hates fags", and served strictly greasy, unhealthy food - would anyone mind? Our restaurants could have "Smoking" and "More Smoking" sections too.

What's next? Burger King trying to indoctrinate Americans into accepting British rule? Whoppers without representation!

9/9/2008 4:19:47 PM



They're trying to sell burguers, not turning you gay.

Hmmm...

I feel like a burger!

When fundies run out of places to boycott they're going to be at loose ends.

Because the "gender-switching crowd" is so enormous now that Wendy's couldn't possibly resist advertising to them specifically.

First McDonalds and now Wendys.

Now they'll have Burger King, A&W, KFC and various other resteraunts to pork out in.

But because of the stereotype that blacks eat at KFC they're gonna boycot KFC.

How to get a Fundie in shape: Tell them all fast food places support the homosexual agenda.
