On Friday’s radio program, Bryan Fischer said that the American Family Association is thinking about issuing an “action alert” about it out of concern that “if this isn’t bottled up in San Francisco, this kind of nonsense, then it’s going to be spreading across the entire fruited plain and you’re going to be going to your Burger King in Des Moines, Iowa and you’re going to have a rainbow color wrapper for your Whopper.”
On top of that, Fischer just thinks the entire thing is a disastrous marketing idea because “when people sit down to eat a hamburger, the last thing they want to be thinking about is two guys having sex”:
The “Proud Whopper” was available for only a few days at one San Francisco Burger King location during the city’s pride festivities.
Update, July 15: On Tuesday, the AFA issued an action alert, asking activists to email Burger King and warn that “promoting and encouraging abhorrent behavior will drive families away”:
“Unless Burger Kings sees a backlash for promoting cross-dressing and homosexual conduct as normal behavior, it will expand the promotion to other cities and additional stores next year.”
