Look America! Burger King is Announcing ‘The Proud Whopper’ aka Gay Pride Whopper!
Yes. For real.
By Todd Starnes
Burger King, the home of the flame-broiled whopper, has announced the creation of a new menu item — a gay pride burger.
The Proud Whopper comes wrapped in a rainbow colored wrapper with the inscription: “We are all the same inside.” The burger is being sold at a Burger King restaurant in San Francisco, USA Today reported.
The fast food chain also posted a video promoting the sandwich on its YouTube channel.
The video features a Burger King cashier asking a customer: “Do you want to go with meat or without meat. We can go both ways.”
“It showcases who we are as a brand,” Burger King’s Fernando Machado told USA Today. “It shows how we, as a brand, believe in self-expression.”
You might recall Burger King previously reworked their “Have it your way” slogan. Their new slogan is “Be your way.”
Burger King might have just now gone too far. It might as well officially change its name to Burger Queen. I happen to know the man who created their famous original Burger King’s slogan “Have it your way. ” I used to attend the same church with he and his wife in Fairfield County CT. I can honestly say I believe he would be utterly shocked at what has become of his well-known and servant minded slogan. He’s a humble sincere generous Christian man. I just might give Frank a call so he can speak for himself and will let you know what, if anything, he has to say on Burger King’s choices.
Burger King’s new slogan change to “Be Your Way” is akin to Coca Cola’s historical highly temporal change of their special formula. Loud public outcries ensued and Coco Cola quickly changed its recipe back to the original and dearly loved recipe. We will wait and see what happens at the next BK corporate stock holder’s meeting, and even more importantly in Burger King’s total profit/loss reports at the end of this calendar year.
Burger King might as well be called Burger Queen now. Seriously? What is it that drives these changes in businesses to align with highly controversial and marginally held views in society? The majority of America still holds true to Judeo Christian morals and views. This reporter has relatives that are gay, doesn’t approve, condone or promote their personal lifestyle yet still loves them.
We have freedom in the United States of America. God given freedom itself states that in Christ Jesus “all things are permissible yet not all things are beneficial.” The “Proud Whopper” is not a beneficial item to promote, sell or eat. Why Burger King are you creating a burger that is named after what kind of sexual orientation people are which leads minds to wander about what kind of sex people have before they can even order lunch? Is this really a conversation you want families to have as they order their drive thru meals or drink their chocolate shakes with their kiddies seated by them as their toddlers curiously ask “Why is there a rainbow on your burger but not on mine?”
Why Burger King must you cave into this gay “Pride” propaganda? Don’t your corporate executives understand that most American families still do not generally support or want to help encourage this propagandist gay in your face, literally in your mouth rainbow mess?
