Wash away the gay advocate Herman Cain, an Atlanta-based syndicated radio host, won't be tasting Burger King's Proud Whopper anytime soon, dissing the gay pride burger being served by his former employer.

But follow the post to Cain's website, CainTV, to taste the real anti-gay venom, where author Dan Calabrese attacks the burger as “flaming broiled” and compares LGBT people to adulterers, murderers and drunk drivers.
First, Calabrese has a little pun fun.
Sigh. I can tell you for sure that when I get ready to consume my lunch, the thing I want to be thinking about is dude-on-dude action.
Hold the pickles
Hold the lettuce
Lunch and gay sex can't upset us!
Then he digs in with tired, offensive rhetoric – all over a burger.
You tell me not to judge you for what you do that is in blatant rebellion against the Word of God. OK. You tell me not to be a hater and not to obsess over certain sins when others are just as troubling to God. Fair enough.
But I don't remember the last time adulterers, murderers or drunk drivers convinced a burger chain to name a product after them, and publicly declared their pride in what they do. You're the ones who are making it an issue, not me. I'm just telling you what God's Word says. If you don't want to hear that, then don't insist on constantly making it a topic of public conversation. (Then again, the thieves have the Hamburglar, so there is that.)
The Proud Whopper comes in a rainbow-colored wrap with the slogan, “We are all the same inside.” Burger King touted it with a YouTube video on Wednesday.
