More Debasement of Marriage: "McWeddings"

From out of Hong Kong comes this latest insult to the sanctity of marriage.

Imagine receiving a wedding invitation where the typical menu options of salmon, chicken, or beef are replaced with Filet-o-Fish, Chicken McNuggets, or a classic Big Mac.

If McDonald's catered nuptials are your idea of a dream wedding, you might want to consider a trip to Hong Kong, where the international chain has launched its first company licensed McWeddings.

No, actually, they're not my idea of a dream wedding; a reverent, holy Nuptial Mass is.

This whole thing strikes me as another ridiculous marketing gimmick by a major corporation.  Producing sexually explicit or disgusting ads is one thing, but using marriage, something that should be treated with absolute dignity and respect, to push your products is an insult.  I won't be buying from McDonalds anytime soon.
