    Reading is your friend. This is from the same wiki page:

    As of 2011, Jim Henson's children Brian, Lisa, Cheryl, John and Heather run the company: Brian and Lisa serve as co-chairs and co-CEOs.

    I don't care who you believe, though it's obvious you believe Henson's side because you are onboard with her message.
    And you ignorantly believe that Chik is more concerned about kids' safety than the Hensons are.

    I'm confused. Muciti. How in the world does supporting SSM make on a "bigot"?
    I have never said that supporting ssm makes a person a bigot. Discriminating against a business or person because of their religious beliefs makes a person a bigot.

It is people everywhere including this community who are discriminating against this man because of his religious beliefs. It is ignorant. I will be contacting Jillian with cospride and if they support the ignorance and intolerance shown by much of the gay community lately I will cancelling my partnership (it is what they call it) with them.
    I'm sure Focus on the Family will appreciate your money.

    Maybe you can give some money to Hamas and Hez'bollah as well. You wouldn't want to discriminate against them because of their religion.

    The FLDS legal defense fund could use some money too. Marrying young girls is expensive.

    Wait, you are bigoted against those groups? Isn't that discrimination against them due to their religion and their creed. By your definition, withholding your money from them for that reason is discrimination.

    Furthermore Focus on the Family has a huge presence here in Colorado Springs and myself and many others here have actively let them know that they overbearing presence here is not really appreciated.

    He didn't. He did however organize the Birmingham Bus Boycott to protest racist bigotry in the South. So if that means he 'discriminated' against the racists running Birmingham Alabama, I guess you got me. Brilliant logic.

    Meanwhile, how bad has the hatred gotten?

    Even Mother Jones is defending Chick-Fil-A:
