    So one company pulls advertising and support from another company because they disapprove of the other company's politics, procedures, ethics, purpose, or other. The company has the perfect right to do so. Companies will align with those who they perceive as giving a positive image for them, and break with those they perceive as giving a negative image for them all the damned time.

    I don't even understand why this thread was started.

    Now that I reread post #230 and read the sign for content, it's cleared a couple things up. The Muppets have absolutely nothing to do with this. Disney owns the Muppets, not the Jim Henson Company. I couldn't figure out why Lisa Henson was even commenting. But now I understand it was another product from the Henson company that was involved.

    Once again, the Muppets aren't any part of this. It's another MSM false lead.

Or for all i know some anti chick fil a person put that up and took the picture. in either case i dont care honestly. It worked out for the better. My kids got kids meals from there and in place of some dumbass muppet they got Berenstein Bear books. I'd much rather my kids get books, good books that instill good values, than a muppet. Chick Fil A should be applauded for helping educate children especially when so many kids today dont have many books at home.

    Furthermore that place was packed. Almost to the point I left. They had employees directing traffic it was so busy at that store. So many people inside I have never seen it that busy. Going back tomorrow morning to continue my support of the right to free speech.

    Funny thing is I dont even agree with what he said lol. BUt those attempting to suppress his right to say it cannot win this. I am encouraging everyone who can via every forum, and social media outlet I can to go support Chick Fil A. Also last year my sons school had 4 separate fundraisers with chick fil a. As vice president of the PTA i am going to do what I can to double that amount rather than splitting it up with them and other restaurants. I doubt I'll get 4 more but every little bit helps.
    The sad thing is, by taking what Mr. Cathy knew full and well was a polarizing stance, Chick-Fil-A will suddenly attract the support of some while repelling others. They're a fast food chain, for god's sake. Not a church. If he wanted to preach this kind of crap, at the very least he should have had the decency to do so from a church, if he weren't to have the decency not to say it in the first place. If this comes back to bite Chick-Fil-A hard--which I damn well hope it does--he'll have nothing to blame but his own stupidity.

    Does this mean you don't deny that Chick-Fil-A lied in that note?

    Me...personally? I agree. Even Reverend Wright said that Obama really never has held a real interest in religion. And while that I'm sure makes some people even more happy, you are then forced to face the incontrovertible fact that if that all be true...he merely used gay people and gay marriage for nothing more than a political ploy his entire political career up to and including his now public 'support' of gay marriage. Tokens...thats awesome. Support THAT guy some more!
