A ‘Gay’ Hamburger? Burger King Selling ‘The Proud Whopper’ to Celebrate Sin

Burger-King-Proud-WhopperSAN FRANCISCO Burger King has come out of the closet in full support of the homosexual lifestyle, and is now even naming a hamburger to prove just how ‘proud’ it is of the sin.

The fast food chain is launching what it is calling “The Proud Whopper,” which is enclosed in a rainbow-colored wrapper with the inscription: “We are all the same inside.”

The burger in its colorful packaging will be sold through July 3 at one Burger King restaurant located in San Francisco, a city known for its celebration and promotion of homosexuality and where sexually-transmitted diseases well exceed the national average.

Last weekend, the fast food chain was a proud sponsor of the 44th annual San Francisco Pride Celebration & Parade, which also passed by its downtown restaurant where workers sold “Proud Whoppers” and handed out some 50,000 rainbow Burger King crowns that were worn by parade participants and spectators.

Fernando Machado’s senior vice president of global brand management at Burger King, who led the effort, said that it was first time that Burger King sponsored a “gay pride” event in the U.S., though it may have done so overseas.

Machado stated that highlighting this special burger as a part of the event “showcases who we are as a brand”.

“It shows how we, as a brand, believe in self-expression,” he stated.

Today, Burger King released a two-minute video about the “Proud Whopper” on its YouTube channel, which Machado says is the chain’s localized effort to support actions that promote its recently-adjusted slogan: “Be Your Way.”

The video was created by Burger King’s Miami ad agency and was intended to capture customer discussion about whether or not the burger is any different than its same-priced traditional Whopper. Ultimately, customers discover, and in one case tearfully so, that the only difference is the rainbow wrapper.

According to Machado, all “Proud Whopper” sandwich sales will be donated to the Burger King McLamore Foundation to provide scholarships to openly homosexual high school seniors that will be graduating in 2015.

Machado says that there are no immediate plans to broaden the promotion, but hinted that the fast food chain “may consider something even bigger later on.”

Burger King is not the first major corporation to come out in support of homosexuality.

Chipotle, whose owner is openly homosexual, has sponsored floats in homosexual pride events nationwide. Additionally, Starbucks, whose CEO told a shareholder who objected to the company’s promotion of homosexuality last year that he could sell his shares, recently marked the 40th anniversary of Seattle Pride by flying an enormous 800 square foot rainbow flag over its headquarters in Seattle.

    this will stop me from purchasing at Burger King. being gay isn’t something to be proud of. if God wanted people to be gay, why is it a sin??

  • James J. Grimes

    The heretics are coming out of the woodwork. By the way folks, the Queer James Bible is not God’s Word. It is an abominable rewrite of the King James Bible that attempts to justify the sin of homosexual behavior.

  • My wife and I have bought our last Whopper from you..I guess is is going to be Big Macs from now on…

    Josh Colletta And yet, still no real proof can be found of a gay gene by anyone anywhere. You claim it is established, but where was the media circus that was celebrating the validation of proof? Don’t you think there would have been one? Wouldn’t it have lasted for months and been plastered over every single piece of media available until our eyes bled? There is NO scientific proof anywhere – zero, zip, zilch. You proclaim all the “studies” you want, but they haven’t found one single thing that proves it’s genetic or anything else but a choice. Get it straight – theories are not fact, they are theories, and that’s all you and anyone else has.

    Why should I believe what the “majority” of the scientific community says? Did you also know the scientific community used to use leeches as a way of curing people by bleeding the sickness out? Sure we’ve come a long way from that, but for that time it was THE THING to do if you wanted to rid yourself of illness.

    Next, the Bible itself. Which version are you reading, and did you teach yourself or did you have an actual teacher?

    Please explain the verse from Genesis 2:22-24, where it is written that man and woman will become one flesh. Then explain where in the Bible it states that “man and man will become one flesh” or “woman and woman.”

    Then, look up the various Bible verses that condemn homosexuality. You might want to start in Leviticus since it’s probably the most well-known, but trust me when I tell you that it’s all throughout the Bible. There is nowhere in there where God specifically condones the practice, none. Only through the twisting of specific verses do they claim to have any sort of “okay” from God. You won’t find it otherwise.

    Next up, please refer to Matthew 19 4-6, where Jesus says: “And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”

    Again, the reaffirming of man and woman becoming “one flesh,” yet no mention of man and man or woman and woman, even in context verses. And there are plenty of other verses that support marriage between only a man and a woman, with their context verses very handily ready. Yet, no verses to condone gay “marriage” or even the gay lifestyle. I can list plenty more where marriage is specifically to be between man and woman and no one has to read between the lines to see some sort of hidden message. And I can include context verses to back it all up.

    It boils down to this – the Bible is very specific and written the way it is for a reason. Every verse within it has context verses to back each other up and explain why they are in there. If you truly believe in God, then you believe what He says. He doesn’t hide the message, it’s there for anyone who wants to see. The Bible has no need for anyone to give their own interpretation of it, when everyone can understand it plain as day if they simply seek out the World of God.

    TL; DR – I will stick with what God has said in His Bible, not someone else’s so-called “interpretation” of it.

    “It shows how we, as a brand, believe in self-expression,” Fernando Machado. An outright lie! Which is the only thing that can be expected form a company that calls evil good, and good evil; that puts darkness for light, and light for darkness; that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope; WHICH JUSTIFY THE WICKED FOR REWARD: Isaiah, chapter 5.

    Where is the Burger King burger to celebrate your Christian customer base? They celebrate us Christians by supporting the very homosexuals that call us bigots while they themselves, both Burger king and homosexuals, are the only ones exhibiting bigotry!

    If they were to come out with a burger to celebrate Christianity it would very likely be done in a distasteful manner: a subtle mockery, or an outright mockery; a mockery either way is all that can be expected seeing that they choose to support sin, as a lifestyle, and as something to be celebrated.

    All Christians should simply stop supporting Burger King and see if they can manage to stay in business with the small special interest group of homosexuals that they have pledged their loyalty to, and let them have it their way.
