A pro-traditional family advocacy group has launched an email campaign opposing a Burger King local promotion in San Francisco that featured a specially packaged, limited-edition gay pride Whopper with a rainbow wrapper in anticipation that the fast food chain may go national with the burger.
"Even though this promotion was at just one location, as a chain, Burger King is promoting homosexual behavior as healthy and something to have pride in," said American Family Association president Tim Wildmon in a statement released Wednesday. "We believe that promoting and encouraging unhealthy behavior will drive families away."
Fernando Machado, Burger King's Senior Vice President of Global Brand Management defended the company's promotion, telling USA Today that the sandwich "showcases who we are as a brand," adding, "It shows how we, as a brand, believe in self-expression." more >>

A recently released study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has found that homosexuals are more likely to drink and smoke than their heterosexual peers.

A group supporting the North Carolina Pastors Network demanded the state's governor defend the constitutional amendment banning gay marriage in the state despite lawsuits from same-sex couples at the local and national level at a rally on Tuesday.
Leaders from the group of about 30 people who gathered on the steps of the old Capitol building, are sending North Carolina Republican Gov. Pat McCrory a petition asking him to use his executive powers to defend the amendment that was approved by 61 percent of voters in 2012, The Associated Press reported.
In a recent column for The Christian Post, Rev. Mark H. Creech, who attended the event and is executive director of the Raleigh-based Christian Action League of North Carolina, wrote that "it should be recognized that same-sex marriage is the biggest government power grab in the history of the United States." more >>
An atheist advocacy group has become the latest organization to drop its endorsement of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act because of concerns over the religious exemption.

Wisconsin Governor and potential 2016 presidential candidate Scott Walker suggested that the GOP has no interest in making its opposition to gay marriage the forefront of its platform.
"I don't think the Republican Party is fighting it," Walker, who is running for re-election this fall, told the Associated Press on Saturday. "I'm not saying it's not important. But Republicans haven't been talking about this. We've been talking about economic and fiscal issues. It's those on the left that are pushing it."
Gay marriage is currently legal in 19 states. While courts have overturned gay marriage state bans in nine other states, appeals are currently in progress. Wisconsin passed a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage in 2006, but its ban was recently struck down by a federal judge. more >>
