Homosexual Hamburgers: When the World Goes Mad

So what do you do when the whole world goes mad? Or at least when so very much of the Western world goes over the edge? These are not just rhetorical questions either. Often after I give a talk on the collapse of Western culture, people come up and ask me with all seriousness, “Where can I go to escape this?”

The trouble is, there are very few places left in the West which are “safe” from all the moonbattery going on. The truth is, as the West continues to shake its fist at God and tell him he is no longer wanted, then every sort of madness, immorality, degeneracy, debauchery and ugliness rushes to the fore.

Political correctness comes in like a flood, and all sorts of ungodly agendas take charge. Thus the war on the sanctity of life, the war against marriage and family, the war against truth and absolutes, and the war against logic and common sense are all breaking forth after we have declared war on God.

So every day we see more examples of the secular left madness sweeping the globe. This website of course documents on a daily basis such developments. Sometimes the individual cases may not seem like so much, but of course it is the incremental effect that we must be concerned about here.

BKOne act of PC foolishness will not bring down a civilisation, but many thousands of such cases may well. No society can for too long withstand the incessant war against its core values, beliefs and principles. As the moral foundations of a nation are eroded, eventually the whole culture must topple.

The trigger for writing this piece is another example of PC madness. Again, in and of itself it may not seem like such a big deal. But when seen as yet another of countless such assaults, then yes, it does become a real worry. I refer to the American hamburger chain, Burger King (known as Hungry Jacks in Australia).

In yet another example of corporate appeasement to the militant homosexual lobby, it seems we now have homosexual burgers. I kid you not. Another corporation bends over backwards (pun sort of intended) to placate the homosexual militants. Here is how one news item covers this story:

Burger King has concocted yet another way to have it your way: a gay pride burger. The Proud Whopper, as it’s called, comes wrapped in a rainbow colored wrapper with this inscription: “We are all the same inside.” It will be sold through Thursday at one Burger King restaurant on San Francisco’s Market Street, that was at the heart of the route for last weekend’s 44th annual San Francisco Pride Celebration & Parade. Burger King on Wednesday morning at 8 AM EST plans to post a two-minute video about the Proud Whopper on its YouTube channel.
“It showcases who we are as a brand,” says Fernando Machado, senior vice president of global brand management at Burger King. “It shows how we, as a brand, believe in self expression.” The inspiration behind the unusual burger wrap and video, he says, is Burger King’s localized efforts to put into motion actions that support its recently-tweaked slogan: “Be Your Way.”
The move also demonstrates BK’s desire to stay connected to its base of Millennial customers. Gay rights is an issue that reverberates strongly with many Millennials both inside and outside the U.S. Burger King also was a sponsor of San Francisco’s gay pride parade. Machado says that’s the first time Burger King has sponsored a gay pride parade in the U.S., though it may have sponsored some outside the country.
The downtown San Francisco Burger King sold “Proud Whoppers” last weekend, during the parade and also passed out some 50,000 rainbow Burger King crowns, that were worn by parade participants and spectators. The video, created by the Miami office of Burger King’s ad agency David, captures customers discussing whether or not the burger, itself, is different. At $4.29 it costs the same as a conventional Whopper. And, indeed, customers ultimately discover the only difference is the rainbow wrap. All Proud Whopper sandwich sales, Machado says, will be donated to the Burger King McLamore Foundation for scholarships benefiting LGBT high school seniors graduating in spring 2015.

This is so bizarre on so many levels. So will BK also have a Jesus Whopper to cater to the far greater number of Christians in the West, including so many who find the rampant promotion of the homosexual lifestyle to be morally repugnant?

Will they have a Life Whopper to please all the millions of prolife Americans out there? Will there be a Heterosexual Marriage Whopper to keep onside the multitude of straight Americans who believe in heterosexual marriage? Will there be a Church Whopper for church-going Americans?

Why do I suspect we will never see such things. Such corporations do not seem to give a rip about how much they offend, alienate and turn off ordinary Americans who have had a gutful of political correctness and the radical activist lobby groups.

Now, in the West a time-honoured means by which ordinary citizens can show their displeasure with a company or business is to boycott it. I suspect that plenty of Americans and others will now boycott a company which has devoted itself to promoting and parading sodomy. Indeed, many people have told me already this is exactly what they plan to do.

But what happens when the whole world goes mad? I tell these people I too fully support such boycotts, and/or taking your patronage elsewhere. But the trouble is, what do you do when one corporation or big business after another starts heading down this path?

Whether it is appeasing Islam and becoming duped dhimmis, or pushing abortion rights campaigns, or sponsoring homosexual activism, more and more groups are jumping into bed with these radical causes. If you say you will stop going there, and instead go to their competitor, more often than not the competitor is also flogging some ugly PC cause.

It is getting to the point that if we don’t want to subsidise with our custom and hard-earned money these lousy businesses, that we soon might all have to head for the hills. So many businesses and MNCs are pushing so many radical secular left causes lately, that it is hard to keep oneself morally uncontaminated.

And of course many people are doing just that – they are heading to the hills, seeking to be self-sufficient with their own gardens or farms, and remain aloof from an ever increasing diabolical culture. That is one way to proceed here.

Of course those like myself who believe in the importance of the biblical injunction to be salt and light feel the tension here. I too am getting so sick of our decadent godless culture. But I know we have a job to do here, and we must stay and fight. Sure, in the process I may have to forego having a Whopper, and so many other products which have now gone totally PC.

But we must take a stand, and we must let these groups know what we think. So please, don’t just stop having Whoppers. Actually contact BK and let them know why you are doing what you are doing. We must keep the pressure on the system, as the saying goes, and as the other side knows so well.

And if we do keep the pressure up, we might see some of these big companies relent and reverse course in some of these areas. It has happened before and it can happen again. So unless you feel a specific call of God to head for the hills, I urge you to stand, to fight, and to speak out.

It is only because we have been so silent and so inactive, while the other side has been working overtime, that so much of the PC madness is taking place. It is time to stand up and be counted.

  1. It’s almost a full time job combating these sorts of acts! Most people now just go with the flow and are subsequently swept up in the PC lies. The ranks of those that don’t and those that speak out are increasingly thinning out.

    My friends list on FB goes down every time I post a Pro Life post or when I like a Bible quote. That’s fine by me.

    It brings to mind “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul?” and also it does say “But he that shall endure unto the end…” Not survive, or thrive but ENDURE.

  2. Seems that every second show on TV now shows some sort of homosexual act as if it’s quite normal. Even the relatively benign “Last Tango in Halifax” on prime Saturday night viewing had two women locked in a full tongue-twisting kissing session. Please it be known to the powers that be who regulate the warnings at the beginning of each show, can there be a new “H” rating with the warning- the following program contains homosexual acts which some viewers may find offensive”- out of courtesy for those of us who do actually find them offensive. We can then simply chose not to watch the show and turn it foo at the beginning- but that wouldn’t suit the GAL lobby agenda would it? They want this sort of nonsense to appear as normal as possible. How do we go about getting another rating to TV shows- is it ACMA controlled?

  3. I commented on a story in the Herald about a gay sex scene on a TV show and featured on the front page of the paper. I commented about how gay sex is being forced onto everyone and should not be front page news and I received a barrage of nasty, derogatory, insulting comments back as replies to my comment.

    That means my comment was effective….

  4. If they’re going to keep telling “Whoppers” I’ll take my custom elsewhere thanks. 😉

  5. Hungry Jack’s is an Australian company, with a franchise agreement with the American Burger King. They seem to do their own thing to a fair extent.

    I agree that it’s hard to boycott all the companies that kowtow to anti-Christian ideologies, but a more practical thing in some cases (apart from contacting them and voicing your objection) is to boycott the particular stores involved. The recent Woolworths support of Ramadam was limited to certain stores, and this Burger King thing was also limited to a particular store. If the boycott is sufficient to be noticed, surely a drop in sales at the stores involved would send just as strong a message as a boycott across the entire company, and would be easier to carry out.

  6. Went to that North America contact point and registered my view.

    I had to select Canada for country before my comment was accepted, so I explained that in my message.

    I tried to find a similar message spot for Australia but there are only 1300 phonwe numbers, no type-in form.

  7. Ah, found it via your link, Bill. I had to resize my text to see and then to click the tiny icon.

  8. Israel is extremely wealthy.The Jews have always done well supporting one anothers’ businesses in cities around the globe. Their Chocolate shops are well known in Australia and when I can I’d use them. Stuff Woolworth’s chocolates and ramadan. Stuff Hungry Jacks and sodomy. It’s my choice in the marketplace.

    All Christians who have businesses should mix with other business people from all other Christian denominations, in the same way that Christian schools, hospitals, hospices, and aged care homes ect do, as the government listens to reason from large numbers of organised people. Or at least the government doesn’t bother them as much. It also makes better business sense, with more regular income and a very very loyal customer base, plus the fact all the customers are of one ‘market segment’ which is then easier and cheaper to supply. It also puts a bigger Christian presence amongst general business groups. Gays are not the only ones in the workplace, and secular businesses are just as sick of them as Christian businesses are – as gays are too devisive.

    God Bless Bill.

  9. “A time is coming when men will go mad, and when they see someone who is not mad, they will attack him, saying, ‘You are mad; you are not like us.’”

  10. I think it is right as Bill suggested for Christians and supporters of heterosexual marriage to boycott Burger King and take their patronage elsewhere. This for me, is the most sensible thing to do in registering our opposition to Burger King. God bless you Bill and keep you strong as you stand for many voiceless people.

  11. Some demons can only be cast out by prayer and fasting. Seems very appropriate for this shocker.

  12. It would seem that in a way Burger King is advocating their own demise by pandering to a sterile people group. If the homosexuals were the only ones to frequent their stores they would have a dying customer base, as left to themselves homosexuals cannot procreate the next generation.

    I wonder if BK have really thought this one through.

    However of of course this is just one more example of how weak corporations are when it comes to a right sense of morals and ethical standards, let nothing get in the way of making a profit.

    Bill, thank you for bringing this to our attention, have already contacted BK raising my objections to their obvious preferencing (you could almost call it discrimination) of one group over another.

  13. I just emailed Burger King USA and Hungry Jacks Australia to express my disappointment.

    Just ridiculous

  14. Ditto. Just left my comments on the Hungry Jacks site. Thanks Bill for bringing this to our attention.

  15. Tesco went downhill shortly after promoting Gay Pride. It hasn’t recovered to this day by all accounts.

  16. I was going to say maybe you got this all wrong, maybe “Proud Whopper” refers to the lies they tell. But looks like Iain MacDonald got in ahead of me on that observation.
