Why Do American Junk Food Giants Feel Urge To Force-Feed Us Titbit Sermons On Social Issues?

We've got the Papa John's pizza guys weighing in on the health care debate, while the burger slingers out west at In-N-Out can't serve up a cheeseburger without a Bible verse.

I guess it's the preaching that makes Papa John's a saint while they're raising the prices of their pizza if health care reform stands, even though John Schnatter has accumulated a net worth of $300 million through over 3400 restaurants around the world. Chick-Fil-A is worth more than $4 billion. We make them rich and they rip us off while preaching to us. No thanks. I'll stick with my boyfriends Ben and Jerry and when I get that urge for a burger I'll be at Carl's Jr, where all I get is what I want.

What could the junk food giants (and other big coporations) possibly know about social issues? They only care about profits and their brand image. The idea of them "preaching" to anybody, anywhere is ridiculous and ludicorus and only makes them look stupid.

To my knowledge In-N-Out is a California chain. although it is interesting to throw Bible verses into the garbage.
The only social issue I can think of is Wendy's adoption awareness. Dave Thomas was a massive supporter of adoption, and contribution cans are always on the counter.
This of course is not a political or religious issue. I just can't think of McDonalds, or Burger King pulling the same stunts.

If you encounter unwanted religious or political statements at any place of business, stop buying from them. The first time they can surprise you, but you will know not to patronize them in the future. Also express your opinion if you are not too shocked to respond. Finally something worth writing on those Comment Cards!
