Christian website makes an ass of itself over a ‘little donkey’, claiming it promotes sodomy

THE word burrito means “little donkey” in Spanish. It’s also the word for a type of Mexican food, which consists of a wheat flour tortilla wrapped or folded into a cylindrical shape to completely enclose a filling.

Now one of the biggest players in the US burrito market is a Mexican chain called Chipotle which came to the Christian News Network’s attention because:

Chipotle Mexican Grill participated in both the Capital Pride parade in Washington, DC and the Philly Pride parade in Philadelphia this past weekend.

During both events, the chain utilized a float upon which sat a man riding a giant burrito wrapped in tin foil. On the side of the float was a sign that read ‘So big you can ride it’, with an image of a rainbow-wrapped burrito in the center.

And here’s the picture – those of a sensitive disposition look away now:

Oh my ears and whiskers – how very dare they!

The chain’s participation in the gay events prompted CNN to headline it’s “exposure” of the company – which has 1,400 restaurants in 43 states, as well as in Canada, the UK and France –  with the words:

Chipotle Tex-Mex Chain, Founded by Open Homosexual, Promoting Sodomy in Pride Parades Nationwide

It further huffed that, earlier this year, the company decided to pull its support from a chapter of the Boy Scouts of America over the organisation’s ban on openly homosexual members [since lifted].

Chipotle spokesperson Chris Arnold told reporters that it decided to no longer sponsor the Salt Lake “Scout-O-Rama” as the Scout policy conflicted with company policy. The Scout policy was reportedly brought to the company’s attention by “homosexual advocates”.

Said Arnold:

While the Boy Scouts of America is absolutely entitled to whatever policies it wants for the governance of its organization, our policies don’t allow us to support them.

CNN also pointed out that, in a Time Magazine article written by Joel Stein last July, it was reported that founder Steve Ells is – gasp – a homosexual, “which is likely a factor in the company’s activism”.

No shit, Sherlock!

CNN concluded:

While a number of companies across America have policies that prohibit discrimination again homosexuals, and donate funds to homosexual causes and events, Chipotle’s visibility is greater than most.
