Quoting from Don Wildmon's Email alert:
Great news! Because of AFA supporters like you, McDonald’s has told AFA they will remain neutral in the culture war regarding homosexual marriage. AFA is ending the boycott of McDonald’s. As you know, AFA called for the boycott in May after McDonald’s joined the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC).McDonald’s said McDonald’s Vice President Richard Ellis has resigned his position on the board of NGLCC and that his seat on the board will not be replaced. McDonald’s also said that the company has no plans to renew their membership in NGLCC when it expires in December.
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.”
We appreciate the decision by McDonald’s to no longer support political activity by homosexual activist organizations. You might want to thank your local McDonald’s manager.
Thank you for caring enough to get involved. If you feel our efforts are worthy of support, would you consider making a small tax-deductible contribution to help us continue?
Express thanks to McDonald's
Porn Blocker: American Will Now Filter In-Flight Web Content
Posted by Matt Phillips October 8, 2008, 9:00 am
In a shift, American Airlines has said it is working with the provider of its in-flight internet service to develop a system to block pornographic content.
In a statement it put out early Tuesday evening the carrier said it made the decision “based on the feedback of our customers and employees.” American launched an in-flight Web service called Gogo — which is provided by Aircell — on three routes Aug. 20.
“Since the launch of Gogo, American has not experienced any reported incidents of customers viewing inappropriate content via the Gogo service. However, we believe this is an appropriate measure to take,” the company said in a statement.
