    What if his religious belief was to push people who followed another religion into the sea?

    (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.
    Meh, I like waffle fries, so guess I'll be contributing to a company owned by a guy who openly says what he thinks, though he can't actually do anything about it, which makes this entire issue pointless.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    How much you want to bet that Chic-fil-A knew that Henson was pro-gay, and was still using their toys in the kids meals?

    There is no doubt about that. Chik is like most homophobic Christian groups in that their principles only matter when they can play the victim.

    Another rumor related to Chick-fil-A that is currently in the media is related to the Jim Henson Kid's Meal prizes. We want to set the facts straight. Chick-fil-A made the choice to voluntarily withdraw the Jim Henson Kid's Meal puppets for potential safety concerns for our customers on Thursday, July 19. On July 20, Chick-fil-A was notified of the Jim Henson Company's decision to no longer partner with us on future endeavors.
    according to chick fil a.

    A company states it doesn't like a certain group, and that's reason enough to attempt to demonize it. If the shoe is on the other foot, and certain groups tell certain companies they don't care for them it's all good, special, and wonderful. Go figure...

    According to Kermit, Lisa Henson sold out to Doc Hopper and is planning to open a chain of fast food joints specializing in frog legs, and this is the real reason for Henson severing ties with Chick-fil-A. Not surprisingly, Kermit is severing ties with Henson.
