    How the hell did you come up with that? Its about his comments on SSM and his donations to several anti-gay groups that spread lies around about homosexuality. It has nothing to do with his religion or with Christianity. It is in no way shape or form about trying to suppress his religious freedoms. He is still free to practice his religion as he sees fit and to make anti-SSM comments all he wants. But people are also free to boycott him for his views which you seem to forget.

    This whole thing is rather silly to me. If the dude wants to use his company to promote an anti-gay agenda, he's free to do so. If that pisses people off enough not to patronize his business as a result, they are free to do that. Everybody just get back to excercising your freedom, and we're fine.

    "The Jim Henson Company has celebrated and embraced diversity and inclusiveness for over fifty years and we have notified Chick-Fil-A that we do not wish to partner with them on any future endeavors," the company said in a statement posted on their official Facebook page.

    (snip)

    The Henson company, whose Muppet characters are hugely popular, said its Chief Executive Lisa Henson is a "strong supporter of gay marriage and has directed us to donate the payment we received from Chick-Fil-A to GLAAD," the company said in their statement.


    Chick-Fil-A has not hidden its Christian mission statement from day one, which precedes the founding of Henson's company. If Henson actually gave a damn about the issue, rather than responding to pressure and then grandstanding, they might have never chosen to associate with Chick-Fil-A at all.

    It's a pity that simple symbols and characters from childhood now have to be politicized.
    Chick-Fil-A really has no choice but to claim to abhor gay rights and marriage, because in the right wing southern Xtian states like MS, KT, AL, etc. Chick-Fil-A is considered fine dining. One has to consider the economic situation of the right wing folks that live there; middle class righties in those states just eat hot dogs or Mac-and-Cheese and go out to McDonald's for fine dining, whereas the elite upper wealthy class dines at Chick-Fil-A.

    When an eating establishment is revered as a culinary creme-de-la-creme by so many right wingers, the last thing such an establishment should do is insult its patrons by supporting something those patrons consider deplorable. After all, what would happen if a right wing couple in AL, KT, MS, etc. walked into a Chick Fil-A, having saved up for so many months to afford to dine there, and saw a gay couple dining at another table. To say the least, they would pissed to the max.

    Chick Fil A in no way prevents gay people from dining or working at their restaurants. This is just ignorant.

    This! You've hit the nail on the head.

    I'm SO sick of the partisan hacks who have blown this story out of proportion.

    It may discourage them from dining there.

    True, (educated) liberals (including gay liberals) will boycott the place for lunch in the same way they boycott the local sewage tank, but there are many (closeted) right wing gays who live in the aforementioned southern states, and they may feel less inclined to dine at Chick Fil-A because of the hostility of that establishment's executive leadership to their love life.

    We call this a straw man. I do not like the baptist church, you know, the organization, what we are talking about. I don't know any baptists, but then again I never ask any person what cult they belong to.
