Wingnut Bryan Fischer is not happy with Burger King’s limited edition Pride-themed burger, reports Right Wing Watch.

Speaking on Focal Point, Fischer said that the the American Family Association, the hate group which he runs, is thinking about issuing an “action alert” because if Pride burgers are not contained in San Francisco, “this kind of nonsense, then it's going to be spreading across the entire fruited plain and you're going to be going to your Burger King in Des Moines, Iowa and you're going to have a rainbow color wrapper for your Whopper."

Fischer goes on to say that the Proud Burger will be a disaster for Burger King because people do not want to have to think of two men having sex when they sit down to eat a hamburger.

The Most Shocking Thing Bill O'Reilly Can Find at the SF Pride Parade are Drag Queens Who Love Bill O'Reilly: VIDEO

Oreilly

Bill O'Reilly sends his correspondent Jesse Watters to troll the San Francisco Pride parade. Watters tries to get Gavin Newsom to call 'traditional' marriage supporters bigots, suggests Mark Leno's pants are a bit tight, and tries to get a rise out of Nancy Pelosi while showcasing a few of the parade's more 'promiscuous' characters.

But Pride parades have really hit the mainstream, and the most scandalous item that Watters seems to come up with are a pair of drag queens who "love" Bill O'Reilly.

Authorities Cancel March for Equality in Kiev, Ukraine

A March for Equality scheduled for Saturday was canceled after authorities said they could not provide adequate protection from marchers, Human Rights First reports:

UkraineDespite months of negotiation with LGBT activists, the Kyiv authorities today said they could not protect the March for Equality scheduled for tomorrow. Organizers told Human Rights First that the march was designed as an opportunity for Ukrainians to demonstrate unity and shared values. Kyiv's first equality march took place in 2013 with police protection, and local activists hoped that once the precedent had been set this year's march would be able to take place safely.

"Kyiv Mayor Klitschko's statement that 'this is not the right time for a celebration' is a huge disappointment. He should have a better understanding of what a demand for equality is. You can't have a hierarchy of human rights," said Olena Shevchenko, co-chair of the organizing committee of Kyiv 2014 Pride. "It seems like it's never really the right time for LGBT rights."

Kiev's first such march was held in May 2013 and faced similar concerns, but police stepped in at the last minute and provided security, arresting 13 for trying to disrupt the event.
